Sketch Collector: 2
BIT ABOUT ME: I'm 32 and started collecting '2000ad' from Prog.335 and although I thought all the stories were excellent it was 'STRONTIUM DOG' that really stood out for me. I think it was the combination of Johnny Alpha's hardware, good guy guy in a bad universe, real nasty baddies and bizarre comrades that did it for me. I've been collecting 'STRONTIUM DOG' merchandise ever since and have an extensive collection (including many rareities). I stopped buying '2000ad'weekly a few years back and I really only buy it or the megazine now when there's 'stronty' related stuff in it, but I'm usually on the 2000ad site everyday to keep track on what's happening.
HIGHLIGHTS OF 2003?:
1: Meeting Carlos Ezquerra at 'Dreddcon 4' in Oxford - really nice, patient guy - well worth the flight down from Glasgow to London, coach from London to Oxford and all back again on the same day!
2: Having my Johnny Alpha tattoo finished after a few months and having it signed by Carlos to give it the 'official stamp' - nice!
