Help! / Re: Rogue Trooper help requested

Friday is as much a part of Rogue Trooper as the original, for me.
A quick look on Barney suggests the only Fr1day that was reprinted was The War Machine.

Tell a lie - Wagner/Higgins' Casualties Of War and Millar/White's G.I. Blues have also been reprinted.

The Rebellion edition of War Machine includes a couple others (Bio-Death and The Arena of Long Knives):

Can't fault the apes. Brilliant.

Durham Red ends on a bang. I hope this returns soon.

I was going to say that I'd lost track of what is going in in The Order, but I don't think I ever had a grasp of it in the first place. Can anyone give me a simple summary because, at the moment, I'm just looking at the pretty pictures?

It looks like it will be in the next volume of the Complete Future Shocks, since they seem to be up to Prog 214 in the first volume (The English/Phlondrutian Phrasebook).

Just read his comments on Michael Carroll's fb feed. Not cool at all to be doing in public. (especially as Michael is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet :) )

Yeah, it’s all very sad and will be grist to the mill of those who frequent the various FB Forums which seem to exist only to criticise, not read, the prog

Looking forward to Michael Carroll's Rico collection.  As I don't do eBooks, is it the same format as the previous collected editions - two previously-published-as-eBooks plus a third novella seeing publication for the first time?

Pat Mills is not so impressed:
"1/2 Just learned that there are THREE novels about Rico out there. No one told me or gave me the opportunity to write MY character. I’m furious. #2000ad #JUDGEDREDD"

"2/2 The author and Rebellion endlessly say ‘we really respect you and your work.’
If that were true, they would either leave my characters alone or pay me a creator’s fee.
Otherwise it’s pure humbug! #2000ad #JUDGEDREDD"

No idea who Spike Milligan is (gonna google it), but based on what you wrote. Sounds like one hell of a guy. Thanks for sharing :)

His war memoir, "Adolf Hitler: My Part in His Downfall", is well worth a read.

Film & TV / Re: Mad Max - Fury Road

That's a really interesting article.

I took none of that in when watching the film as I spent the entire film with my jaw agape or flinching from the action, which just goes to prove what an achievement it is.

That's for the video game consoles & monitor, IP- I've been forced to contain all items that have not been approved by Headquarters to one room.

Very nice. I take it that the cut-out at the back of the shelves is to run cables?

Brilliant cover. More Tula Lotay in the prog, please!

Looks like a fun movie.

Unfortunately I made the mistake of reading some comments on Facebook about it. I despair for humanity,

That movie gave me a headache!

Me too. Apparently it gets easier to understand on subsequent viewings, but I just couldn't muster any enthusiasm for that.

I did like the "tech start-up" aesthetic.

I'm kind of curious how the marketing meeting went for this.
"We don't want to market the property into a niche where the only readers are men in their fifties so we're updating his look and setting it in the modern day and it will be published in Match of the Day magazine."

I'm shocked that they didn't put it in "Shoot" magazine, where it would sit nicely in between the full page photo of Tony Cottee and a "flops of the season" article debating whether Robert Fleck or Neil Webb deserved that accolade.

It has been some time since I was the target market, though.
