Thinking About Brett Ewins

Old time associate of 2000AD artist and Deadline creator Brett Ewins, Tony V Wright, has written about his current situation after recent events;

He was in the trauma unit just over three weeks. He had lost two stone and could, then, just about stand unaided but he was out of any serious danger so the medical staff thought he was in good enough condition to be moved to his local hospital. On the day of the transfer his family left after visiting him, expecting him to be in Ealing Hospital that evening. Instead, he was spirited away, without their knowledge, to Charing Cross Police Station where he was kept in a cell until the early hours before being interviewed. The next day, in a hospital dressing gown, hardly able to stand, and not understanding much of what was going on he was taken to Uxbridge Crown Court where he was charged with GBH, had bail denied and remanded to Wormwood Scrubs. That was on the ninth of February. He's still there awaiting trial for events that he has no memory of. All medication stopped the moment he was taken from hospital and for the first three weeks of his incarceration, at least, the only drug he received was codeine. He is confused and, understandably, frightened.

Our thoughts are with Brett and his family. The Forbidden Planet blog recently ran a tribute to the man from his peers.
