Background Suggestions:
1. In this Post-apoc world, he is a part time bin man, delivering garbage from the land-fill mines to the trashies or 'grey trash' who are forced to recycle trash into useful items by the local council in return for food.

2. (#) Each nipple is possessed by the soul of a fallen comrade (Phil, Scott & Vernon), wiped out during the brutal breaking of the bin-men's strike of '04

Howsabout "Rosco" ...?

based on a blue furry twentieth century kids toy with robotic innards he has scavenged from his 'finds'. The robot is generally in a bad mood and isn't a 'nice' robot despite looking a bit cute.

> Then there were all those dark and grimy painted stories

Ah ... the foul legacy of Bisley, which cast blighted shadow over the pages of our beloved comic for many a year.

And ... yeah, a fairly easy way of disguising a lack of basic drawing ability. See also: Mr Walker's use of nice, strong inks since all the work he put into getting his figure-drawing up to scratch paid off ...

> They're driving me crazy. Anyone know of a cure?

Hydrocortizone. Available over the counter from any pharmacy. Works on eczma (sp?), insect bites and any number of rashes, so it might be worth a go.

Blimey - helpful advice? I must be ill ...

With reference to the title of this thread: may I advise avoiding consumption of large quantities of marzipan together with large quantities of spirits.

Y'see, cyanide doesn't smell of almonds, almonds smell of cyanide ... 'cos it contains cyanide compounds.

It's possible, although unlikely, that the alcohol will separate the cyanide in marzipan and kill you stone dead!

This has been an announcement for the Good of the Public Health.

So now you know!

I can't swear to this, but I don't think there's a distinction between coloured-by-hand and coloured-by-computer - it's either full colour or b/w ...

'Cos this way it doesn't take Kev six weeks to do an episode (even artists have to eat, y'know) ...!

Plus, all the Walker stuff is self-coloured. I think we had this argument on the NG a few months ago, but I _like_ current style - Mignola inks (by Kev's own admission) and all ...

After the shameless f*cking lie that was "The last ever Sinister Dexter Story", I doubt we'll fall for _that_ one again!

I _always_ thought that period of attempted trendiness was profoundly embarassing and almost entirely akin to watching your Dad dance ...

I also remember reading an interview with Sam Hamm (first Tim Burton Batman movie screenwriter) who said, quite explicitly, when discussing the comics-to-film process that the Robocop writers had Dredd firmly in mind ...
