I agree, Sharky: we should kill everyone who comprises "The System".

England never just lose outright, they always dangle a prospect of success before fucking up at the end. To quote John Cleese in clockwork: "'It's not the despair, Laura. I can take the despair. It's the hope I can't stand"

Have you not been listing todat DDD. Ben Stokes has played the inns of a lifetime... just 6 weeks or so after playing the inning of a lifetime.

England won the game today!

In such circumstances, it's traditional to parody the Norwegian commentator's famous celebration by either listing the defeated nation's greatest heroes or an ironic inventory of affectionately regarded but quite silly and insubstantial figures.

The great thing about Australia is that both lists contain exactly the same names.

WE HAVEN'T WON YET! its 1:1 - We're at the equivalent stage of a World Cup quarter final, doing well, daring to hope, but....

Well okay. But about 45 minutes after lunch England had lost it entirely... but good point we need to see what happens at Old Trafford. But the chances at least aren't dead ... yet...

Nigel was a personal hero of mine and it was always a pleasure to meet up, chat and laugh with him. Stunned doesn't cover how I, and many others, feel right now.

Dobbyns work on Red Razors was among the earliest material in the prog I was exposed to, through back issues, and I always adored his thick, bold art. What a tragic, sad loss indeed. Cheers for the Thrills, Nigel.

Nigel Dobbyn was a fucking great artist with a beautiful and distinct style. I was always amazed he didn't get more 2000ad work. I once met him at a convention (I believe he was doing Billy the Cat for the Beano at the time) and really liked him. RIP.

Oh no that's terrible news. Such a talented artist. I'm lucky enough to have met and chatted to Nigel a couple of times and share my love of his work with him and he came across as a lovely understated person.

I always hoped his recent work on Specials and the like would lead to us seeing him again in the Prog on a more regular basis, alas that will never now be the case.

My thoughts and love to his friends and family.
