2000 AD is 35 years old this month and I've been asked by Down the Tubes blog to answer a few questions about my memories of 2000 AD (seeing McMahon's artwork for the first time!) and to supply my own version of a character from the comic's history. I fought the overwhelming urge to draw Dredd and instead decided on Johnny Alpha AKA Strontium Dog - the lantern-jawed, white-eyed, Keith Richards-lookalike, mutant Bounty Hunter. Here's my version along with a few lines from the song I'm convinced played some part in his creation.
