That is a thing that comes up in Blazing Battle Action, with Pat Mills arguing more strips like Charley's War and Johnny Red could've stretched it.

Diabolik Monthly!I'll admit I basically know nothing about the British comic scene, but even so there's fascinating hints there- for example I wonder successful monthlies leading to the UK having a more 'European' comic scene might lead to more stuff from the continent ending up getting successful translations over here?
I meant more along the lines that his work on it at Marvel UK at least had consistent plots, decent story arcs & character building. Which was almost entirely missing from the US generated strips.Oh no, in fact the impact of no Furman Transformers is going to be huge - that's an entire influence removed from creators as diverse as Kieron Gillen and webcomic's David Willis.
