It would be 2.5 apiece but that's not allowed, right?

If it's online, count me in... otherwise, I'll raise a glass with you in spirit.

Have had this on my study wall for years: Bolt's rendition of a few boarders as fatties for a poster we did for Dreddcon back in the day.

I met Dave here on the board, and we collaborated on several things including producing several strips and setting up the relaunch of Futurequake. He was undoubtedly one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure to work with, and to count as a friend.  My heart goes out to all those most affected by this loss.  Truly devastating news.

Challenge: write a headline that would piss off the most 2000AD fans in the fewest number of words.

Cat Sullivan. 

Kek-W.  I thought this was going to be harder, but looking over the Moore droid's output, this is a solid vote.

Edginton, for the imagination.

Peter Hogan - his strips always seem to inject a bit of sweetness into the 2000AD pile.

Pat Mills.  Must be a nightmare to work with, he's written some of the most turgid pages of comic I've ever written, but when he's on form, he is 2000AD.

John Smith - the greatest, strangest, best talent 2000AD has ever produced.

Abnett.  With a heavy heart - I do love me some Al Ewing.  But Abnett.

This being the one place I sometimes post where my family isn't likely to see, please allow me to vent. My wife and I are in lockdown because the schools where we live are closed down, and we're lucky enough to have the option of teleworking. Meanwhile, my fucking mother, who has metastatic kidney cancer in both lungs, is refusing to take any precautions at all - this weekend she's been to a bunch of parties and all over the country, basically walking around in every damn crowd she can find. Worse, she's dragging my dad along with her (triple cancer survivor and not in the best of health himself). All the while making blithe little jokes about "if it comes, it comes," seemingly not giving a shit about her life or anyone's feelings but her own. We've tried gently and then less gently getting her to take the whole social distancing thing more seriously, but it just doesn't get through. And there's a limit to how much I can physically interfere given that I am stuck a good 2000 miles away, just going out of my mind.

Thanks for listening /reading /scrolling past, etc. Just really wanted to get that off my chest somewhere.
