It's a real shame that we've lost such a great author that was so closely linked to 2000ad.

A much loved writer, always willing to offer good advice to anyone learning the craft too. A tragic loss.

Fitting to have his own thread outside the RIP column I think.

Steve Moore has had quite a reaching influence on Writers. He got an obvious name check in my Interview with Leah Moore and John Reppion.

Seems like a legacy to me.

Sad news, I really loved Jonni Future that he wrote for ABC with Art Adams.

O Lucky Stevie!

Steve demonstrated  Einsteinian Relativity within the pages of Dan Dare in a manner that this 8 year old could effortlessly grasp.

He showed us wonders & gave us the Future Shock.

Terribly sad news.

Time for a Tales of Telguuth graphic novel I think.

Seconded.
An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!
