Didn't Tulio give the Smurfs the Nu-Earth treatment last year?  Or was that a particularly dubious batch of meds?

t’s not hard to meet expenses . . . they’re everywhere.

Gah!  How slow am I?  Took me three reads to get it.

I think it's fair to say that the better question is: which ones should we avoid.  To be fair, this was a reasonably well chosen collection with very few duff volumes.

I'd have to say that the B&W volumes have not weathered well mind.  The modern colour stuff is generally served far better.  As far as Cursed Earth is concerned, the uncensored edition is the better option.  Personally I'd be inclined to say that any of the Titan hardback editions do a far better job than this collection did with quite a few of the early epics.

Weird Science, Independent Operators and Fallen Angels are odd choices and don't do a great job.  Nor do Calhab Justice or the World at Law.  I think most people's utter contempt though was reserved for Cursed Earth Carnage and The Heavy Mob, both of which showed the Meg at its worst.  So all things considered, a reasonable serving all round.

The Wikipedia page is a pretty good reference for contents if you're particularly interested.

You'd think that between Gosh!, Forbidden Planet, Orbital, Mega-City Comics, that one in Walthamstow and that one in Putney that one of the shops would be able to help (have I missed any shops out?)

Not sure.  What I do know is that the last time I visited London, the comics scene proved a major let down.  Way too much of the same stuff.  FP in particular, stuffed to the gills with expensive tat.  Reckon the missus was rather relieved since it meant not much of anything was spent.

Mind you, it might well be the fact that I've tracked down most of what I want now and the things that I would love I couldn't really justify before family expenditure (or selling a kidney).

Having purchased from Maf before, I'd endorse him as an option.

You know, it's actually quite disturbing that a London based boarder is struggling to track down back issues.  Speaks volumes for how far the capital has fallen.   :|

As an aside, looking at the covers on Barney, I think it's slightly possible that they've got those in Troutmark in Cardiff.  I can have a butchers at the weekend if that's any use.  I'm sure there are a few of this parish that might be able to help you out more first though.

Please excuse me while I pick my jaw up off the floor.  I really do not envy the judges their task of selecting a winner.  I doff my cap to all who have entered so far.  There is some absolutely fantastic work here! 

I would be in favour of a Competition entry special with all of the works submitted included.  Perhaps some commentary from our esteemed creators on some of the pieces?  I'd certainly be happy to pay.  If Rebellion is not up for it then perhaps Hibernia or Zarjazz?

Just imagine Rebellion gets tired of this and all his current series gets reassigned to other creators.

Not to mention, what will happen when karks it.  What will he do?  Come back as the ultimate ghost writer?  Or just haunt King's Reach tower, moaning pitifully about what writers are doing with his characters now?

I'm feeling comfortably lost.

"Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead" has to be Stoppard's finest piece of work.  The Disney version with Tim Roth and Gary Oldman is outstanding (and unfortunately incredibly hard to find on DVD now).  It was performed in London last year with Daniel Radcliffe as Rosencrantz (or Guildenstern) and was a close second.  Richard Dreyfuss, for me, absolutely nailed the part of Playmaster so the Disney version still has the edge.

Okay I don't make films

The heat is clearly getting to me and I'm starting to think completely bonkers thoughts for this time of the morning.  Latest line of completely bonkers thinking?  R2-D2 and C3PO in a New Hope are modelled on Rosencrantz and Guildenstern from Hamlet.

Reasoning:

- both sets of characters are supplementary to the main character.
- both sets of characters are tasked with the delivery of an important message.
- both sets of characters are generally either lost, confused or following the paths laid out by others.

C3PO is clearly Rosencrantz (or possibly Guildenstern).  Often confused, generally following aimlessly and hoping for the best.  Completely out of his depth.  R2-D2 is clearly Guildenstern (or possibly Rosencrantz).  Far more purposeful and aware of his responsibility but still largely controlled by the task he has been commissioned to fulfil.

In the next episode:  How Romeo and Juliet was clearly modelled on Attack of the Clones.
