How did you feel when you saw the violent stuff in Real Time?
I felt sick. Queasy.
The comic strip business is a funny old game. Next week I shall be drawing a scene in Judge Dredd where a poor innocent secretary is sliced in half by a laser beam. That kind of stuff happens all the time in comics so you get used to a bit of gore.
The gore really was suggested in Real Time, there's lots of kind of mouldering faces and pipes stuck in various noses.
