"Leigh's getting married in the morning! Ding! Dong! The bells are gonna chime!"

Sorry about the delay for this weeks' Prog cover, but I'm sure you'll agree there's a good reason. You see, it's artist, the very beautiful Leigh Gallagher was kinda busy producing a wonderful marriage proposal for his girlfriend Nikki so didn't have time to put this cracking Defoe cover on his blog.

In true comic artist style, Leigh made a rather moving comic strip of his proposal which he showed to her in a 'lovely hotel room overlooking the incredible Tokyo skyline at night!" Sniff, s'beautiful!
Naturally, Nikki said "Yes" so now there are legions of brokenhearted women across the world and at least one Welsh podcasting 2000AD reviewer. Come on Rich, we've all felt the Brokeback Mountain-esque sexual tension between you and Leigh! So, now that the world's most attractive copmic book artist is officially unavailable it seems only right to print the phone number for the Samaritans, it's 08457 90 90 90.

Speaking of the fantastic Everything Comes Back to 2000AD podcast, Rich McAuliffe has started writing a superb blog to accompany his and Flint's ramblings. The blog has links to previous shows as well as some great 2000AD articles and prog reviews. In fact, it was friend of the blog Rich who kindly sent me Leigh's cover, so thanks for that mate!

So once again, congratulations to Leigh and Nikki, here's to a long and happy life together!


  1. The love we're feeling for Leigh getting married is great. I wonder how many other comics and readers share this passion amongst them. When i saw his proposal strip i was inclined to write a post too.

    Leigh's the fucking man!

    2000AD for life!!

  2. whoa whoa whoa.....
