Euan Darroch is a Scottish healthcare professional who has a passion for most genre fiction including fantasy and both hard and pulpy sci fi. He draws the line at adolescent angst and characters with parent issues. He has a near-40 year relationship with 2000ad and loves it for Halo Jones as much as he forgives it for Big Dave. He believes that Johnny Alpha should have stayed dead and that Dredd just gets richer and better with age. He will argue to the death that dream sequences for the purpose of exposition are lazy storytelling. He is in equal parts proud of the degree to which British writers and artists have influenced the comics world and dismayed that they are only deemed to have made it once they go to one of the big US publishers. (But he doesn’t have a chip on his shoulder about it.) Outside of comics he loves any sport that involves a good chance of seeing blood. He has been previously published in the British Journal of Cardiac Nursing which he claims to read only for ECG of the week. He lives in Glasgow, Scotland with his wife and weans.
