Thanks Colin, that was a lot of fun and plaudits to Dan Abnett, plus all the others for keeping us so entertained over the years. Look forward to what's coming next.

An interesting one, as Alan Moore's work for the Prog is complete, and I'm sure Ian has many more ideas up his sleeve. I've enjoyed a lot of Ian's work, but Moore's legacy is just that, and will remain highpoints of Tooth. So on balance I'm voting for Alan Moore, with the caveat that Ian's work is not done yet.

Setting aside Pat's credentials in creating the Prog, he's written some incredibly memorable stories which will always be held up as classics. Does he still come up with fresh ideas after all these years?

Dan Abnett's imagination when let loose is a thing to behold. He's expanded Dreddworld out into the galaxy, given us a modern classic in Kingdom, and much humour and terrible puns in Sinister Dexter.

For being so consistently brilliant in the modern era, my vote goes to Dan Abnett.

Hmmm and hmmm. I like them both a lot, great storytelling styles and world-building. On balance, the only thing that tips this is Ian's tendency to leave threads dangling, which is as much a recognition of his creativity as anything else. So by the very tiniest of margins, Dan Abnett.

Alan Moore, not just for creating yours truly, but for a classic run of stories that still hold up. The remaining books of Halo Jones will always be one of the great what-ifs of the Galaxy's Greatest, but what we have never falters. We wouldn't be having these debates if it wasn't for Uncle Pat, but I often find his themes wearing. His work in creating Tooth provided a springboard for some huge talent, which is why I'm sticking with the Northampton wizard.

Thinking about the page count of the Slaine volumes, is there any reason why the Diceman strips couldn't have been included? There aren't any rights issues are there? Thought it would have been fun to see those again.

Much as I enjoyed Low Life and still enjoy Williams' take on Dredd, including where he's going to take it next, Abnett has provided numerous consistently great thrills. So Dan Abnett.

Alan Moore, as a full hand of Skizz, Halo Jones, DR & Quinch, Future Shocks and of course yours truly beats McKenzie's trump card of Luke Kirby.

Ian Edginton for brilliantly realised, often linked, worlds of strangeness and wonder.

Pete Milligan, because of Bad Company, The Dead, Tribal Memories, Hewligan's Haircut, and Bix Barton - unique Thrills all.
