On a marginally more positive note- Apocalypse Dreadnought. Ron's work on this was the only good thing about it, and in glorious colour too. I recall desperately wanting to like it every week because I enjoyed the art. What a pity the actual story was so tediously disappointing, it's a real shame Ron got saddled with a lot of really lame strips late in his career.

For me, Carlos just has an incredible understanding of human form and the way it works. I'm not talking so much about simple proportion, more the way figures stand, how their weight distributes and the way they move in his work all seems very natural and dynamic. Even a fairly static, front on piece of two figures walking above has a sense of natural movement and the figures have poise and presence that can be hard to achieve and comes about through underpinning knowledge and talent.
I love John Burns' stuff- he's a great artist, vastly experienced and great with figure work, he's another one of my 2000ad favourites. But even he has the occasional stiff, awkward looking poses where it doesn't quite work.

Carlos' work just never gets old for me, I love his trademark 'untidiness', he's been my absolute favourite comic artist, since I first clapped eyes on Portrait of a Mutant. I love a lot of artists work a lot and for many varied and sometimes conflicting reasons; but I just love his more. :)

Okay- sorry lads, I'll have to cancel as I'm skint and you're all too far away. Job done, all in one sitting.

yeah, looking at that seizing the fire site, the pic there doesn't look much like Captain Sensible at all- other than shades 'n' beret. Way too serious looking. Can't remember seeing many pics of Sensible being all grim, quite the reverse. Kind of looks a bit like Warhol in a beret.

Hmmm, don't think Captain Sensible has ever played drums. IIRC, he started out as bassist for The Damned, moved over to guitar and has played a bit of keyboards, so the 'Dr Beat/ Captain Sensible/ because he's a drummer' doesn't fit, though Dr Beat's look may well still be based on the Captain.

Yeah, this series is ripe for a revisit in today's political clinate, which does have this narrative going of a rich few exploiting an unhappy many, with all too many people putting their heads down and just living through it, without knowing who to believe. As others ahve said, the original sort of lost its ay as it went on, largely because it had too many unanswered questions about who Doom was, and how he had so much power to know who was corrupt, and to stop them. The idea that society itself got fed up and conjured this psychic being is actually rather tasty, certainly has more potential than the zombie/vampire bits.

Hmmm, not sure I really care who Doom was and how he got his power- having it all explained and laid out would kind of ruin his mystique; or me, it's not really important.

I really liked the juxtaposition of the supernatural stuff with the near future/ modern-noir feel. For me, it was kind of what give it an edge I liked and would like to have seen explored a bit. It looked like it was going to be really cool and then kind of just didn't be.

As with others, the first series was great, the art superb but it didn't seem to live up to hopes and I stuggle to remember where it went. Overall I liked it, but wanted to like it more than I did.

WW2 vampire lovers, excuse a little plug for Zarjaz... this issue has a Fiends of the Eastern Front tale in it and though I haven't seen the finished thing, I have read the scripts and, well... it's zarjaz.
