Nice interview with Dan Abnett about his current projects and his work for the prog:

Don't think I've ever read a Dejah Thoris comic.

Will try one of Abnett's next time I pop into my LCS.

Cheers, that's a great interview that covers most of his career. Lots of stuff about Tooth.

I somehow lucked into getting a complete set of Wild’s End. Well worth it if you can find copies.

I have the comics for Wild’s End volumes 1 and 2, but volume only came out in TPB (slightly bothersome) which I haven't gotten around to getting yet. Great series.

He certainly deserves all the credit/praise he receives!

Yeah just to echo that Wilds End is up there with his best work for Tharg. Highly recommended.

There was another one that I thought would be great and it lasted one story because everybody hated it, so you just don’t know.

I wonder what this is referring to - and looking at what's been published it might refer to either Badlands or Sancho Panzer, both of which had a single run.

The first two volumes came out in floppy comic form, volume 3 was only released in TPB, is what I meant to say.
