But do FCBD issues count?


Ah yeah.
Sure Simon Pegg is a bona fide Droid in my book.

Jon Davis-Hunt is your lad Tankie? I assume in the sense of something more than just 'drew cracking stuff for 2000AD"?

I only twigged this recently after joining the dots between a few different comments - Tankie's often mentioned that his son draws comics, but I hadn't been aware he was an honest-to-goodness Droid! (and a talented one who seemed like a very nice chap, based on a very brief chat at a con)

Ouuuhhh interesting see I figure a Droid has to have a BIG body of work to count as 2000ad. That of course raises a question how much.... now there I come unstuck of course as my answer is I dunno!

I think we do need a thread on this...

I agree, but the answer is one story.
But do FCBD issues count? Co sidering by this point it's almost tradition to have a recognised US artist on the strip for the first time, Powell, Hawthorne...almost Breyfogle.

In my eyes, these guys thoug phenomenal talents aren't TRUE droids. Maybe auxiliary droids, but not true droids.

John Byrne?  He illustrated one of the first Dredd stories I ever read, in the 1983 Sci-Fi Special.

I used to be a big Byrne fan but strangely I don't think I ever read his Dredd tale and I wouldn't think of him as a Droid.

Did he write the Shaun of the Dead story that was published as well?  Also, he's Johnny Alpha!
