Whatever happened to Delano anyway...?

Writes the occasional novel, probably banks some healthy DC/Warner royalty cheques since Moore got DC to split his share of Constantine royalties 50/50 between himself and Delano.

Ah, Hicklenton. Really looking forward to his contribution to Nemesis, that's next up in my UC reading. And yet I didn't care for his sloppy, odd art back then. Weird! It nudges my elderly brain in all the right places. I was wrong  :o

I also thought Kek-W was Mark Millar.

Me too, for obvious reasons. I thought it was maybe a situation like Strontium Dogs, where the editor was rewriting the original scripts and Millar had asked to have his name removed.

Obviously, the Kek-W who shows up at signings is just an actor Millar pays to maintain the illusion, like Michael Caine in Without A Clue or Remington Steele.

Dan Abnett does have one of those maybe-made-up names...

And I did think Jamie Delano was the then-ubiquitous Alan Moore. Pretty sure I read that somewhere, and just went along with it. Whatever happened to Delano anyway...?

Cheers, Frank.  I remember thinking Dan Abnett was John Wagner for a short while - pre SinDex obviously but I can't remember what he wrote. I also thought Kek-W was Mark Millar.

I’m playing catch up, but I have to say this was a very enjoyable prog indeed. I was curious to see what was driving four pages of comments, but now I see it’s delivery woes and not stories. Hopefully all was back to normal the following week! When I see next week’s comments, I’ll know!

Btw - I wouldn’t mind seeing a follow up to the future shock, if that’s ok.

Good work, droids!

Why you don't provide nazis a platform and then try to cover your own ass.

Crowder is not only a poor debater, he's also a complete racist tosser.

I recall that era fondly - and how exciting it was to have some very different art styles come into play.

Hicklenton on Nemesis was like no other art I'd ever seen in the prog: so disturbing!  I mean Judge Death was scary when drawn very cleanly by Bolland: but Hicklenton's work felt a bit like the artist was suffering trauma in realizing their vision.  (I could imagine Bolland settling down for a nice cuppa after drawing Death ... but Hicklenton maybe needed counseling.)

I really loved Bisley's work on the ABCs: but that's not to say that I didn't like the different art style of SMS.  The trouble is that they get naturally compared because they both worked on a much-loved series, and SMS had to go second against the breakout talent of Bisley.  Man: unfair! 

Much as I love the work of King Carlos, I'd started to tire of Strontium Dog because it seemed to be coasting along on too mellow a ride.  Simon Harrison's art, and the fact that The No-Go Job seemed to be shaking up Alpha's world a bit, were exciting compared to the mellow.

You are very welcome. I confess I found the quote first time by searching for it in "" speech marks, which is I reckon the trick to these things.
