I remember some rumbling rumours of a Duncan Jones 2000AD project at the 40th bash, but had incorrectly assumed it would be Strontium Dog.

Looking forward to this of course and absolutely delighted for all those Prog 228 Ebay floggers who will reach new dizzying heights of an £8.99 price spike.

y know what. The thought of other writers having a bash at Slaine or ABC Warriors genuinely thrills me.

Aside from The Black Hole, my favorite ABC Warriors story was written by Alan Moore.

I was chatting with former IDW head honcho Chris Ryall a couple years ago, and he suggested strong interest in producing an ABC Warriors series, but couldn't get it of the ground due to the restriction about using a different writer for the characters. 
I know IDW can be hit or miss, but the thought of new ABC Warriors material with a completely fresh creative team did have certain appeal.
The characters have always had huge potential in my opinion, and sometimes haven't been serviced with the best of story-lines (nevertheless always the best of artwork).

Having said all that, I've been a huge Pat Mills fan all my life, and regularly enjoy his current work in the Prog.

Some of the shite you lot make me Google...the world has gone absolutely bonkers.

Anyway, is there anyone out there on the WWW that genuinely believes a remake would even be entertained as an idea?
My irony radar is in a shambles after years of reading posts from Prof Bear.

Zoe Saldana, 39.

Interesting what engages the mind at 7:04am...

I, er, had a dream...


Did it involve people on a jungle planet, the Starship Enterprise for some Galactic Guardians?  (didn't recognise the name so had to look her up - turned out I'd seen at least three films she's been in)

I'd be amazed if it's only three!


You're right, I've seen six - Pirates, ST, Avatar, STID, GotG, GotG 2 (still need to see ST III and the latest Avengers).

No mention of Sin City? What kinda secret old-man-pervert club is this?

All I can say is that there were, um, jungle-ish elements...
Anyhoo, Nicole Kidman is 50 today.

As you were, Sharky.

Looking forward to your musing on the Prog 780 (Megablast) era, Colin.
I remember really enjoying the line-up at the time, even Friday and Kola Kommandos!

The main event was of course the beginning of Buttonman- described by Tharg himself as a "real teen sleaze strip".  Old green bonce certainly knew what buttons to push at the time.

Man I want that cover: fantastic stuff, anyone know who it's by?

Yes, it is fantastic.
It's by our own Mimikeke.

Are they bespoke shelves - they are lovely.

Yeah, got the builder to install them for me towards the end.
Very sturdy and very lovely. Bit of a step up from the IKEA plastic storage boxes I was using, never mind their shelves.

We got to that bit in a typical 'Building the Dream' episode where cash / overspend just became an insanity inducing joke, so I just thought- why not?

What happens with the bit in the corner where the two racks of shelves meet?

That's where I've sealed off my screams.

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

Bingo.

Ah, nothing against Babylon 5, but that character was the bane of my life when it was popular - NO, I DID NOT NAME MYSELF AFTER A FICTIONAL CHARACTER FROM A TV SHOW I'VE NEVER SEEN! *  (also, if I had access to the time travel necessary to influence my parents in naming me before the show existed, I'd probably be living in a mansion by now!)

Relax mate - why don't you sit down with a nice cuppa and a Garibaldi?

Robin Redbreast, on YouTube. Loved it.  Tightly scripted bit of proto-wickerman / straw dogs folk horror.
Oh lovely! Picked up the BFI DVD sometime ago, really must sit down with it if it cones with the JBC approval!

Great film, and great disc from the BFI too.
Interesting interview with John Bowen included, discussing the chilling real-life inspiration for the story.
