Glad to see 2000AD posting a teaser of the new Lowlife series this week. This one stars my (and Dr. F's) favourite, Dirty Frank. A bit daunting to be following in the footsteps of Henry Flint and Simon Coleby, but it's huge fun, and I've been trying to work with Rob Williams for a couple of years now.
As of writing, I'm finishing episode 5 of 8, and it's madder than a snake's armpit with a bag of hammers, I can tell you. Don't think I've ever laughed out loud so many times reading a set of scripts.

Mega-City architecture: wayyyyy too much fun.

Must confess, I'm having wayyyyy too much fun drawing Mega-City architecture, but I'm still managing to squeak in ahead of the deadlines. I imagine the series will start sometime March/April(?)*

*when it comes to scheduling, Tharg don't tell me nottin' :-)

Excited about this - and I'm a dyed-in-face Henry Flint supporter. Now if only you'd done that 'Dirty Frank goes metal' one...

(I take back that statement if this one is 'Dirty Frank goes prog')
