Aw, bugger. That's no age. Remember when the Mondays appeared in a Judge Death one-off?

Alan Grant was one of his generation's finest writers, making everything he wrote seem special. His work for 2000AD has become a legend, and outside Tharg's House, I'll never forget his Batman's with Norm Breyfogle on art duties. Some truly outstanding work there. What a tragic day, so condolences to his colleagues and family.

Alan Grant? Oh, that’s sad news. He was brilliant. And I’d say embodied the prog’s early ‘rebellious’ attitude as much as anybody. Loved his Batman stuff with Norm Breyfogle too.

One of the last things I heard of him was organizing some kind of local community comics project during Covid, though I forget the details. Seemed like a great guy. Condolences to those who knew him.

Bloody hell, just spotted the tribute on the homepage.  Terrible news.  He was one of the greats.

One of the pillars of 2000ad.

Christ like Carlos it’s one of those that really hits.

Thank you for all the great thrills Alan.

A terrible loss to all concerned.

I've covered various of his writing projects on my blog - the most obscure of which (to me anyway) was for a strip he did for a 'Frank Frazetta' magazine

Damn shame, he was such a fine actor. He was a very tall man who tended to play the bad guy, but with such panache, you'd remember his character. David Warner's famous Four lights scene with Patrick Stewart in Star Trek TNG, where he tortures his subject to believe there are five lights, not four, is fantastic.
