Some upstairs joint in the Temple Bar. It was a bit tacky and has an enormous tray of half pulled pints of Guiness awaiting the next sucker.

Sounds like The Quays.  May God help you.

Great thread, completely missed that it was a necro-post.  Artists who have either greatly improved, or morphed into an equally good 'second' style:

Adlard (terrific new B&W style)
Elson (much better sense of movement and space)
Langley (pushing the boundaries)
Critchlow (almost unrecognisable from Thrud but still brilliant)
M. Harrison (again, a huge leap forward from The Travellers to his later colour stuff)
Ezquerra (quality fluctuates, but watching the transition from idiosyncratic B&W to the demands of computer colouring has been fascinating).

The artist that has most amazed me is Simon Coleby - I hated his Friday work, and struggle to see a connection between it and his current stuff, which can be truly brilliant (the recent Dirty Frank tale with the babies, for example).

I'm torn on the questions of Walker and McMahon.  I love their earlier work, and their new work, but I'm not sure it's an improvement per se.  Walker used to do some horrid things in his painted work (the Anderson on Mars sequence is particualrly uneven), but drew some great robots and aliens too, but while his new work is achingly spare I think it suits Dredd really, reeally well.  McMahon is just a genius, and while I stand in awe of everything he's ever done, I do prefer the Judge Child chapters to anything before or since.

The Zig and Zag guys used to do  a morning-radio spot on this very subject, and it was drowning in classics.  E.g.

The Chrstians:
"When will there be a hard vest
For the worms?"

I never thought I'd see Joe Dredd doing the Timewarp! (It was sort of inevitable for Johnny and Red).

For crimes against this, our finest thread, I sentence Larf to death. Chain him to you-know-who and throw him out the arlock.

Lord knows it probably comes to us all, but do we have to have it shoved in our faces when we come here for a little comfort on a bleak Wednesday morning?
