Ace Bolt, Strontium Dog?
I was browsing Pinterest the other day, and all of a sudden realised where about 95% of my inspiration comes from: 2000AD. When I was 14 years old, a friend of mine brought this awesome hardcover magazine thing to school, it was the 1985 Annual, a yearly publication, and I got hooked on it straight away.
For example, take my friend Ace Bolt here. Dress him up in some gaudy looking green & yellow garb, with a bit of red on his visor, and I think he could pass for a certain Strontium Dog's distant cousin.
