Happy New Year

Here is a very quick sketch of Strontium Dog (Johnny Alpha). I've just finished reading a story called A Traitor to His Kind in my catch-up reading of the weekly progs. It's a great story, and like A Portrait of a Mutant it really gives background depth to Johnny's character.


This year, according to various sources, John Wagner will revisit/rewrite the death of Johnny Alpha, I'd like the story to give Johnny back his future. I didn't think Johnny should have died in The Final Solution and don't mind if there is a twist in the tale that gives him his life back - I'd like to think Johnny eventually finds happiness and gets to retire to an alien planet somewhere...

Hopefully that's a nice positive thought for the start to the New Year.

Good one, Kev - is this for the 2000ad 15-minute sketch challenge thingy?

(on an unrelated note, the word verification image spells 'nunwaps' - which I'm probably alone in thinking is utterly awesome)

Always thought Alpha's death sequence was utterly uncharacteristic of the strip's own milieu, and as such was all wrong.
