Unhappy [2000AD] Brett Ewins dies

Sad to hear about the passing of Brett Ewins, 2000 AD artist of such 80s/90s classics as Bad Company.

Seems he had a troubled time in recent years, but RIP...

I have a beautiful original Rogue Trooper panel (from the Major Magnum story) of his from 2000AD

Some of the detail in the artwork is entirely lost in the transition to print, and it's a fine example of the quality of his work.

Of the 'classic' 2000AD artists, I think it's a very close call between Brett and Brian Bolland.

RIP Brett.

One of my favourites: Bad Company is immortal.

It's sad reading reading that Wiki summary: people like Brett Ewins defined my adolescence and he gets a couple of lines.
