Went digging through the local comic shop's dollar bins again. Came out with some assorted stuff...


Three issues of Alan Morre's 1963. The last comic I needed for a complete Trencher run. TMNT X Flaming Carot. And two issues of Star, a Savage Dragon related spin off


Complete run of J.M. DeMatteis's Forever People. I probably shouldn't have gotten these, as it turns out its on ComiXology. Also, some Who's Who issues. Love those things.


And finally, some issues of Electric Warrior, including the first two. Interested in this because of the new series coming out (though unrelated to this one apparently). Also, Jim Baikie on art. So there's a 2000 AD connection right there.

That’s disheartening, I loved The Martian.

General / Re: new 2000ad RPG to funded via Kickstarter

Almost ALL new RPG products are crowd funded these days. The market is just too niche to pour money into anything but the most guaranteed of sales (D&D, Pathfinder). Even big name brands like World of Darkness needs to resort to crowdfunding. Its just the business right now.

I guess I need to do some research on the  WOIN engine. I love RPGs, and just having Source Books for Judge Dredd will be awesome. Even though I'd rather run it in FATE, or GURPS.

This appears to be their WOIN (What's O.L.D is N.E.W.) line of products. for those curious, the N.E.W. RPG looks like their generic Sci-fi system. So will probably be the base of the new JD RPG.

Its been a while, but over the last few months (since that post I made in May), I've been back in a print comic buying mood. Mostly diving into dollar bins trying to find obscure 80s and early 90s material that is unlikely to get a digital edition any time soon. Indie titles for the most part, a few licensed titles, and of course dead companies like Crossgen.

In June I actually got a ton of cool stuff from a comic shop an hour north of me. Mostly DC/Milestone comics, Icon and Hardware mostly, which I found to be very interesting. I also found a good chunk of a Crossgen title I was missing.






But this last Saturday I got to go to a comic convention that took place in my own backyard, called Terrificon. It had a good mix of comic creators and comic vendors. So I hit those dollar (and one quarter!) bins hard. The theme of the day ended up being Joe Staton's E-Man and Crossgen. As well as some other odds and ends. All of this majesty cost about 19 bucks. A good day.







Gizmo & the Fugitoid #2 closes the loop I started back in May. Finding a random copy of issue #1 at an antique store, spurring me on to dig into those bargain bins for indie treasure. I found issue #2 all by itself in a dollar bin. Just waiting for me to find it!

General / Re: Stories that should be collected
« on: 11 August, 2018, 05:19:57 am »
There's a bunch of stuff in the Extreme Editions that honestly its about time got proper collections or rereprinted in a Meg Floppy. At least to get it in a digital format.

Bad City Blue, The Dead, Firekind, Reaver, Armoured Gideon, has Cinnabar ever been reprinted?

Also, can a brother PLEASE get a digital release of the first Lobster Random series, that damn Hardcover has prevented it from getting reprinted for far too long.

Tyranny Rex in Indigo Prime. Though Smith once cryptically told me on facebook that she was in fact on page one of the most recent series just before he was replaced by Kek-W.

Which just raised a whole bunch of questions.

So many Legion of Super-Hero references packed into page 2.

Because comics where the characters are allowed to age and change over time, especially in real time, are arguably the best kind of comics.

There's a more direct thread already. He appears to be making a Rogue Trooper film.

There is? I can't seem to find it.
