Great to hear the comp will be back in the new year, thanks CFM

Perhaps sooner even than that ;)

You chaps are so bloody lovely. Again - I've been on this forum on-and-off since I was 15 and I've never been totally scared off, so that says something anyways  :D

I didn’t used to be a D’Isreali fan, but I have really come round to his work recently. Now Trevallion is great on Absalom, but I wonder how well he will suit Helium. D’Isteali and Edington just go so well together.

IMO if it can’t be D’Israeli, the closest is INJ Culbard (as I understand it they were originally  going to share Brass Sun) but I guess he is busy with Brass Sun and Brink and I definitely want him to continue on those strips.

Oh and Helium reads nicely in one go. I do hope that isn’t it and we do actually get some more.

Amen.  The news that Trevallion is taking over on art duties is encouraging.  D'israeli is a hard act to follow but at least someone with a complementary artistic vision is in the frame.

I've always felt, personally, that Journey to Hell was a bit of a mixed bag.  Artistically to me it is classic Ezquerra and that may well be why I've always had a soft spot for it.  His vision of hell jibes incredibly well with Dante and that was probably the inspiration.  About as close as I think we will ever get to an illustrated version of that work.  Storywise though, it suffers a little toward the end. 

It seems part of a different generation of Stront story.  The early stuff wore it's Western roots on its sleeve quite openly.  Post Portrait there always seemed a more political edge to it and the discrimination side came to the fore.  The pre rebirth stories seemed a little lost at times, or perhaps 'experimental' is a better word, grasping for a renewed vision.  The current post rebirth stories seem to show a harsher, more cynical edge to Johnny.  He seems to have lost a little of the compassion he had in the early stories (e.g. the Moses Job).  There was always a steel to him but now there seems to be little else.

Can’t believe Dominion is going to wrap up already.

For something that’s been running for months (counting the previous story as well) the Anderson “epic” just petered out really. It never really felt that exciting given what was meant to be happening.

Dredd had a couple of nice scenes especially between Dr Boris and her partner / intern but overall descended into silliness and not in a good way.

Devlin Waugh. I think this series is the first time I have actually liked this strip.

Lawless. More like flawless.

Oh and Helium reads nicely in one go. I do hope that isn’t it and we do actually get some more.

Ah-hah, of course, thanks Joe! Have to dig out the Prog in question now, but from memory a pretty significant lift, but no worse than 50% of all Future Shocks, or Pat Mills strips for that matter ('The 6 Million Dollar Man, but with Deathlok's computer', etc.). As you may have guessed I'm reading 'Be Pure, Be Vigilant, Behave', and despite my undying love of Mills, the double standards are really beginning to wear.

Facebook can be horrific when you stray from your own circle of friends (sometimes even when you stray from your own page.) But on your page you are the boss. I intentionally turned Facebook into safe ground ages ago, after one to many confrontation. it's only social media if you make it that way and it's only anti social media if you let it be.

I recently signed back up to Facebook after years away from it, is there a more public slant to facebook now with more interactions between strangers?

I'm also hoping the art competition comes back soon, I may lurk a lot and not enter but I often check on it!

Apologies for hijacking this thread, but do we know which PKD story Pat 'Damnation Alley' Mills alleges* was plagiarised by a 2000AD drold, only to be rumbled by the readers?


*in 'Be Pure, Be Vigilant, Behave!'.

I thought it was One Man's Meat (Beyond Lies the Wub)?

Sorry, just seen this.

Going by the description by Sheridan's friend of...

them from behind.. The 'heroes' are also mutants - with lizard tails."

...Stevie seems to remember this as being drawn by John Stokes. Don't have the progs at hand, but Barney suggests that it coud be either:

Oh What a Lovely War 1 episode (Prog 464) 4 pages
Script: Oleh Stepaniuk, Artist: John Stokes

Biological Warfare 1 episode (Prog 466) 3 pages
Script: Oleh Stepaniuk, Artist: John Stokes

In response to shaolin's op, PKD's sole children's book is well worth tracking down
