I was thinking about you the other day actually.
I think I said at the time that your FS was the best I’d read in years.
I can’t really understand why others have got other work when you have not as you showed the most potential, although I did quite like Laura Bailey’s Terror Tale and id like to see more from her.
This will be controversial, but I don’t care, I prefer to be up front: the female only sci fi special has given others a chance who are not good enough, at the expense of the likes of yourself, to achieve some positive publicity from the community that values box ticking and diversity over talent.
I don’t know if you read it but the recent sci fi special is the single worst issue of 2000ad ever published and I find the whole situation quite bemusing. But, whatever, politics eh?
Matt Smith has done a really fantastic job over the years, but that doesn’t extend to talent spotting unfortunately, certainly not when it comes to writers anyway - generally there is a a high degree of quality on the art side.
Have you given up on the idea or are you still plugging away? I don’t think you should give up, your strip was better than pretty much any one parter I’ve read from 2000ad over the last god knows how many years. And I’m not just saying that because you have posted today, I said as much at the time.
Alex Worely is the best of this last gernation of breakthrough writers and he’s quite fleeting in his appearances. I don’t know if that is because he doesn’t pitch as much as some others but he’s the one guy I thought could be the next Ewing/Carroll/Williams.
