Strontium Dog

Not as much atempt of the old school 2000ad stylings for this one. I'm not actually a big fan of Johnny Alpha, I think his last decent story was the one where Wulf got killed off and he went off for revenge, but the early stories were great and he is a classic 2000ad character.
Think I'll try my hand at some non2000ad stuff next, although I do plan to do some more. Maybe I'll give Hellboy a go, Mr Zombie Dollars Nik Holmes' fine version has inspired me!

Can't go wrong when you go with the Dogs. Early stories were definitely classics and the story where a certain wazzock killed him off was the lowest in a line of low points that followed Wulf's death.

I used to buy 2000 AD just for Dog. Absolutely awesome. Agree with Bangs totally. great pic, great tribute.

Yeah, pre-dead Wulf was a great run.
Consider yourselves honorary Search Destroy agents!

Never was a big fan of Dredd himself. Don't think the fascistic copper ever really appealed.

Enjoyed Ace Trucking, D.R and Quinch, Bad Company, Zenith and the like though. Wasn't like the AD had little else to offer. there was always plenty.

That rocks, fella. Thanks for the Stronty. Actually, your linework on THIS piece reminds me of Tartovsky. Anyone else? That has to be a good thing.

Nik's done a Hellboy? I'll have to dig out my "Hellbob" drawing I did. There's a bunch of Bob the B homages from comics and cinema that I used to do. You should see my "Bob a Fett"!

Some Dredd stories I like better than others really, funnily enough the ones I like are from around the same times I reckon 2000ad was at it's strongest.
But, yeah, there's loads of top 2000ad stories in the back catalogue.
Cheers Mr Bling, Tartovsky? Cool.
And yes, I really should see Bob a Fett!

They say every Dog has his day !

I used to love those chunky outlines that Carlos Esquerra drew on Strontium Dog and his 2000 AD stories.
