Cheers Colin.

Will there be a letterers vs editors one?

Not sure about stripping art down to line art that was intended for colour, it's not really the same art art that was created to be B&W. But I love that there's still room in 2K/ The Meg for black & white.

B&W on bog paper with a slightly more substantial cover FTW!

Actually, I might abstain altogether- at the risk of being burned for heresy, I just can't judge 'story' separate from art. By and large, if I don't like the art I don't like the story and exceptional art can make a basic story very enjoyable. The things that stick in my mind to make stories memorable are overwhelmingly images rather than the words.
There will always be exceptions- "because I hate you", "And he didn't think it too many", "I'm too cool to kill", "I knew you'd say that"... no wait... not that one.
American Reaper, Shakara, pretty much any of Fleisher's 2k output all had good art but were just boring and I lost interest.

Hell, I even enjoyed Purgatory/ Inferno- big, dumb, fun ideas cut from the same cloth as early Dredd epics. It has the freewheeling aroma of 'enjoyment of doing' about it and it had great art- I enjoy that far more than some convoluted, tightly-plotted, boring-ass story with art I dislike.
Ace Trucking Co should not have worked and probably wouldn't have with any other artist at the time, except (perhaps) Ian Gibson. But it was great and it was Belardinelli's art that made the goofiness of it work.

It doesn't have to make sense, taste is emotive.
There is no reason why I like green and dislike celery, I just do- so I'll probably just watch and shout abuse at the linesman from the sidelines, then scoff at the outcome regardless of what it is.

On that basis, put me down for City of the Damned ftw as well.

Little known fact : I used to live in Perth way back in the '80's.
Was run out of town..
Was told if I ever show my face or step foot in the place again unmentionable things would happen to my backside.
So it's a NO from me, think I'll try Shrewsbury instead.
Keep on Drokking !!.

Oh c'mon, now you HAVE to tell us what you did to rile the people of Perth.

Hell it's Perth, you just have to 'not come from Perth' really...  :lol:

"The Souther Contingent will laugh at us again."

Now there's an admission I'd thought I'd never hear.....

I just thought it was all about letters and pictures of food up in the wilds..... eh Buttonman?

Not at all- there's whisky, hard drugs and violence as well.

Does that make sense?

Nope. But lay on MacDuff etc.
We'll find a way to twist, loophole or otherwise annoy you back, rest assured!

I know we live in a free society, but such events should be frowned upon.

Sez who, exactly?
Isn't it up to the individual what they will or won't frown upon?
Particularly in 'a free society'...

Mind you, ‘a punch of Scotsmen’ seems like a reasonable collective noun.

I always thought it was 'a heidbang o Scots'.
