Probably just showing my age, or maybe because I gave up reading 2000AD in the early 90s and didn&#39;t start looking at it again until around 2001. Though I&#39;d love for Vince to do more work (other than the very occasional cover) for the 2000AD family sometime.Mark Kardwellhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/17791352096505994671noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8210377.post-29167991492328177542010-10-19T12:24:33.255+01:002010-10-19T12:24:33.255+01:00Some cool imagery on Indio&#39;s site, and I have ...Some cool imagery on Indio&#39;s site, and I have to agree with you that his would be just the kind of fruitcake style that would benefit 2000ad&#39;s need to be seen as a risk-taking enterprise rather than the mostly-reliable milkman of comics delivery it&#39;s become since stabilizing in the late 90s.<br /><br />But I will take issue with 2000ad&#39;s supposed ignorance of bold stylists of late, as it&#39;s given us Simon Frasier, D&#39;Israeli, Frazier Irvine, Frank Quitely - though admittedly slowly over time so you might not notice, but even in its heyday it still gave us the greats like McMahon, Gibson, and O&#39;Neill either at a slow pace over decades or by inheriting them from the extant UK and European comics industry.Brigonoshttp://www.blogger.com/profile/05284882511370405132noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-8210377.post-80639715718946726142010-10-19T06:59:57.626+01:002010-10-19T06:59:57.626+01:00&quot;Jarvis, you terrible c**t!&quot;&quot;Jarvis, you terrible c**t!&quot;cerebus660http://www.blogger.com/profile/07719757386457800087noreply@blogger.com
