This is a problem Harrison has had for a long time, dating back to Glimmer Rats where everything was so murky green you couldnt see to tell what was going on, Durham Red was just dark pages with mucky colours, and now its a technicolour scream that confuses the eye and needs  tighter linework to bring it together rathjer than his extremely loose euro style.  Harrison is a very accomplished artist, but hes not a very good comics artist if it's difficult to make out what is going on storywise

Dunno if maybe I cared less on those stories, or he's got worse, but yeah, the lack of depth puts everything in the same plane, and then everything becomes indistinguishable from everything else. I agree, like John Hicklenton, a brilliant artist, but terrible storyteller.

Really can't see how we've been spoiled rotten of late, but aye... not a brilliant prog for sure. 

Oddly enough, I just realised tonight what my minor issue is with Harrison's art.  '2012' the terrible disaster movie was playing in the background, and I noted (again) how messy it was in the scenes of disaster, so much going on, all in very similar colour palette, resulting in an overblown confusing mess on the eye.  Nicely done in individual elements, but so much lumped together it's hard to pick anything out.

So aye, Harrison is the Roland Emmerich of comics.

Midway

Another vapid, soulless, showy affair from Emmerich.  CG that makes it look like a computer game, awful acting from the principal cast, and a by the numbers 'true story' script.  Very disappointing considering the supporting cast assembled could have made it a very enjoyable film.

Yeah Mongrol is gone now.  And I agree the Harrop stuff is a bit hit and miss.  Love the Dr and Quinch, the rest I just have as I'm a compulsive collector, lol!

There was another Mongrol up at a decent price, but he's gone as well.  There is this one in the states though.....
