Angel Zero was one off the first new series I read when I returned from my hiatus. As you said this had a beginning, middle and an end. This was a hugely entertaining series. I would like more of this type of once-off series.

The prog is still going strong

Dredd - the art is fantastic and the story is looking very promising

The Order and Deadworld - there is two things common about both of them and it is the stellar story telling from Kek-W and both brilliant artists suites the story.

Grey Area - RIP

But aren’t all stories reincarnations of other stories? In Hollywood’s case its is reboots. The American comic scene rebirths. Originality can be so overrated, I would rather have a good solid story. I am getting to philosophical here just enjoy the story………….

Hmmm - a team of past-it veterans and green rookies has to save the day ... well that's never been done before.  ;)

That is why it is not called The Originals  :lol: .... but anyway if you like Dan Abnett's work I am sure you will enjoy this

I have read the first volume and I can diffidently recommend this.

The write-up:

"It is the far future; the human race has finally colonized the galaxy, preserving an era of prosperity that's only possible because of The Hypernaturals. They're a celebrated, galaxy-wide superhero task force that keeps the peace. That is, until they all mysteriously vanish. Now, as the galaxy teeters on the brink of chaos, it's up to a group of retired and long forgotten Hypernaturals -- and their novice recruits -- to save the galaxy from complete destruction. Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, the superstar writing duo behind ANNIHILATION and THE LEGION, launch an all-new original graphic novel series that takes cosmic super-heroes to a new frontier."

I find Mark Harrison’s art on Grey Area has a certain cartoony quality, which it didn’t have on stuff like The Vermin Stars or Glimmer Rats.

If you look at Prog 1872 and 1873 I believe that was his first work on Grey Area, his art for me was much more clearer and the coloring was much less abrasive. His work here was quite excellent.

It’s all subjective, but I preferred Karl Richardson and Patrick Goddard on Grey Area.

For me they are two of the most under rated 2000AD artists.

I am with Magnetica on this one

So, the decks are being cleared in the JDM for Meg 400.  Any word on what's going to start in 400 (other than Storm Warning)?

I still think Harrison's best work was on Glimmer Rats.

It's a lovely thing to be sure, but in Grey Area there's a perfect marriage of Harrison's two main modes, strong  linework characterisations and crazy largescale paintscapes, and for my money the combo tops anything he's done before. Sometimes I do have to look at a page twice to understand how it should read, but when it clicks it's all clear as crystal.

Yeah his storytelling is by far his biggest weakness. I think this has improved over time, I really struggle with Glimmer Rats. I think in part its due to colouring choices. As Tordelback says once you get past that things can be clear.

I think that is one of the reasons why the last series of Grey Area I did enjoyed it as when it started due to Harrison art. I find it strange since  his work on The Ten Seconders where really great. As you said it can be due to his use of color schema or even his line-work.
