Known for his madcap action and vivid art, 2000 AD alum and creator of the comics anthology Deadline Brett Ewins passed away on February 17, 2015 after a brief illness, at the age of 59. Ewins influenced an entire generation of comic creators through his work on Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper, and for having a hand in the creation of Gorillaz artist Jamie Hewlett’s Tank Girl. Ewin’s bizarre style lighted the minds of many comic fans, but he also deeply suffered from paranoid schizophrenia, and in January 2012 he suffered a heart attack and grievous head injuries after stabbing a police officer, for which he was arrested and subsequently released on bail.
Beyond the Longbox met with artist Simon Fraser (Nikolai Dante for 2000 AD, and Doctor Who: The Eleventh Doctor for Titan Publishing). Fraser had a few words on the art and legacy of Brett Ewins.
