2000 AD Prog Slog

Prog 725

It’s interesting for me to see how two premier league comic creators of 2008 are being perceived in 1991. Today, Dave Hine is a comic writer but, during this time at 2000 AD, he’s the artist on Tao De Moto. Hine’s art here, in case you haven’t seen it, has a contemporary and confident feel to it. I think comics are genuinely missing out by not seeing him both write and draw his own work any more.

One of the stories about writer Mark Millar is that he wrote a script a day for six months until he started to successfully get work. This might explain why Ig-Roid feels that Millar has been around long enough for the entire first page of this prog’s Nerve Centre to be dedicated to him when he’s new to us, the loyal Squaxx Dek Thargo. It’s entertaining to see that Millar has the same sense of self promotion in 1991 as he does in 2008. When asked about his other current work in the questionnaire, he lists a bunch of projects, including Dr Paradox and The Sacred Skin of Sherlock Holmes, half of which never got to print as far as I am aware.
