Afraid I’m not a fan of the reboot at all so an easy win for the quality art of Return to Armageddon.

1) nothing in your hypothesis of a gift clashes with what I have said, if they gifted the piece back to the Ezquerra there is no question as to title. But that is not what is widely considered to have happened here where people are assuming it’s like the Bolland.

2) my first paragraph is correct.

Formerly a lawyer but no longer and not a property law person at all but it strikes me that things aren’t clear cut - yes if you buy a piece that is stolen then you do not get title (the old exemptions to this were ended in the 90s)

However - given comics is work for hire property resides with the company who commissioned the work, the return of art to artists unless included in their employment contract is something that is - at worst - a indulgence or act of good will or - at best - a legitimate act conferring title to the art established by deed and intention (ie established precedence over time). However as the practise back then was not to return the art (I believe) then a reasonable stab could be made to say the Ezquerra estate has no title to the piece and any theft is from the original publisher (and thus whoever bought their assets when sold on). Proving the piece was stolen from them would be both tricky (time elapsed) and unhelpful to the Ezquerra estate (who wouldn’t get title simply due to the fact that later one practise changed. Of course if some artists were getting their art returned from day one then maybe they could testify that IPC was transferring title to them.

I realise that’s not a popular opinion but to me it indicates it’s a lot more complicated than simply say if the (returned) art was stolen from the Ezquerra household.

Think we all know this is going one way but I’m voting Demon Nic for being funny and Paul Grist.

Whose done that cover? I can't shake the feeling it looks a bit Frank Quitely... but I'm not convinced it is?

My guess is Dylan Teague.

It’s lush.

Great Cover
GREAT Dredd (actually very Rob Williams Dredd)
4 other great stories with astounding art


The best comic bar none.

Art on Tor was immense. But it’s Tharg (or secretly a vote for Alec Trench)

Don’t understand any love for age of the wolf, woeful from start to thankful finish.

Whereas Dante is top 5 ever.

So, that.

I see a lot of words here but I don’t understand many of them.

Particularly curel to Abnett should he lose out in a wrestling match with a flymo.

Keep Dan Abnett as long as he can type with is feet say I.

Lawless, yet another reason why Tharg needs to keep ahold of Dan Abnett for as long as the man has hands and a brain.


Rian Hughes all the way: tales from for me.

[but why is Mean Team so popular, isn't it a bit rubbish (quite a lot ribbish?).

overwhelmingly, surely, belardinelli?

I whisper it  but except for a few strips he's perfectly suited for I'm not a Belardinelli fan...
