Not of this, one and done.

(I do have more shorts in mind though... and who knows maybe I'll end up coming back to this ...)

PJ you should do a Future Shock. Great stuff !!!!
Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

I wish there were more places in the Prog for shorter pieces like this. I’d have loved to have seen that in the current issue—it’s really good.

I enjoyed that! Maybe Tharg will publish the next one, if you show it to him first. Al Ewing did half a dozen one-page Tharg's Future Shorts a few years ago.

I like that and although you want more not to do more makes it even better as I’ll always wonder what is out there 😳

That was superb. More please- and yes, 2000AD needs a few one, two and three pages. I've been reading a fair amount of old uk weeklies of late, and while the smaller page count on strips obviously doesnt allow for the kind of storytelling the prog excels at, it does seem a shame to completely remove the opportunity for the kind of storytelling that Mr Holden demonstrates here can offer much.

This is great PJ. Just the sort of thing I loved about 2000ad as a kid.
