Forgot to mention, got an email from The Mighty One yesterday asking to do a five page future shock. Brilliant, it’s such a light relief after so much fearless (and the 86ers) to be able to draw a goofy one off. And I’m (trying) to draw it in a different style from anything I’ve done in 2000AD, at once more cartoony and yet more realistic. I’m not sure I’ll be able to pull it off. I love doing future shocks – there’s no pressure whatsoever, it really is playground stuff; you get to invent the entire world, all the characters and vehicles and none of it is forever. The last one I did was published in 2003 – although, iirc, it was drawn in 2002. Blimey.
Also: it’s a great little future shock, very funny.
Edited to add: Written by Alec Worley who’s written a bunch of articles for the Meg.
S’a good script.
