Prog / Re: Prog 2048 - Stop the Apocalypse Squad!
« on: 14 September, 2017, 11:56:27 am »

*  Even if I did wonder when Justice Department decided to build four lane highways leading out of and into a city they want to keep citizens in and keep migrants out of with equal, fanatical zeal. It's always looked like the rubble and desert of the Cursed Earth goes right up to the wall in previous depictions. Although top marks to Cornwell for attention to detail - the on-ramp merges into the highway from the right, which is the kind of cultural difference that usually foxes UK artists.
 


I think they've improved the road infrastructure following the building of all of the Mutant Camps in The Cursed Earth that MC1 now has responsibility for maintaining and policing. I'd assume that means more traffic in an out on a daily basis than previously?

And it's gone again!
According to Lew Stringer's Blog the current issue is the last (again).

Announcements / Re: New Hachette tests

Sadly for everyone looking forward to getting the test editions it looks like IndigoPrime is right. I tried adding my subscriber code to my online Hachette account this morning and kept getting an error message. An instant message window popped up after the 2nd attempt and I had a very pleasant chat with a guy from Hachette called Vincent.
Apparently my subscriber code isn't a subscriber code at all - it's for a one off purchase code that only applies to one book. There is no 2000AD collection at this point and so it is not possible to subscribe to it. Incidentally, the contact email in the subscription email doesn't exist either!
Time for everyone to get their fingers crossed for a full national launch!

Sector south, the best sector of course.

Bloody hell, they've done it! Yes!

At one stage, I'd have said it'd never happen, but after getting Zenith, Dan Dare and the banned Cursed Earth episodes back into print, it seemed quite possible. Well done, Tharg - I never doubted you!

Has Tharg built a crack team of brand new legal droids in the past few years and not told us? Or does he just send Dredd to do his negotiating?! Rebellion are burning through that list of dream projects we all thought would never happen.

The Mega Collection only made it to 4 issues here in the test area, then there was a 6 week break before the full national launch. The test editions were identical apart from different spine art.

There were only four test issues planned, so it's not an indication of how well it did (very well, as it turns out).
That's good to know Molch-R. I was so excited when I 1st spotted it in the newsagents I bought 2 copies and then nagged a lot of other people to buy it as well!

I've subscribed to a number over the years and never had this happen. Nearest has been when they trial a partwork in an area and only release the first half dozen issues to test the water.

Prog / Re: Subs notebook

Does anyone know when we Tooth only monthly subscribers get our chance to buy them? There's been an advert saying "soon" running for about the last 4 or 5 months now....

I've not had mine this week yet. My guess is Easter has hosed everything.
It's was in WH Smith's on Saturday though so it obviously left the printers in plenty of time to avoid Easter.

It looks like subscribers and off the shelf buyers seem to have swapped over this week and sub copies will presumably arrive on Wednesday :)

When I click Unread Posts I'm only getting 1 topic - The Star Wars thread. I mean, I love the new trailer but .......

That's a 3rd-party module so its probably only registering post's as unread from the time it was (re)activated this morning, I will have a look at it when I get a chance but it will grow as time goes on.

Yep. It's looking much better today. Thanks for checking.

No prog for me either. I'm taking it as some sort of karma thing following my opportunity to meet John Wagner last weekend!!  :D

General / John Wagner - What A Lovely Bloke!
« on: 01 September, 2015, 01:08:28 pm »
I took my lad down to the Bournemouth Film & Comic Con on Saturday and despite a lack of comic content (common with many "comic cons" these days it seems) in favour of TV and film stuff we did get to meet the mighty John Wagner! And what a lovely bloke he was.
Quite happy to chat and sign stuff - and not charge for the privilege like most of the other guests- he made my little boy's year. He signed his copy of the old Dredd vs Death collection, and personalised it for him, and then when we bought a copy of the new Dark Justice hardcover from him he signed that one to him as well. It's Tuesday now and he's still talking about it (my son, not John Wagner!) and carrying Dark Justice around everywhere with him.
I would just like to take this opportunity to say thanks to John for being so nice and patient, taking the time to chat, and to apologise for our abysmal weather! Apparently, after being booked for a con at the seaside he decided to make a week of it down here with his wife. Their intention was to spend the week taking some lovely coastal walks and, to quote the great man, "it rained every bloody day"! Sorry John!

Necropost!!

Just flicking through Future's new A-Z of Superheroes thing in Smiths and at the bottom of the editorial page is a little box stating that Comic Heroes is coming back - "like Ras Al Ghul from a Lazarus Pit" apparently!

Due in shops on the 9th October. I wonder what has changed to make it viable again when it wasn't this time last year?

Hi guys. If anyone managed to get a spare today or doesn't want their copy after they've read it, please let me know. My local comic shop's delivery went missing and they didn't get any copies in.  :'( The owner has tried to track them down but it looks like they may have gone to another shop. Gutted!!

Great news. Not only did my LCS owner manage to track down his missing delivery but he brought it round and delivered it to my house in person! Big shout out to Andy at Paradox Comics in Poole - give that man a Krill Tro Thargo for services to Thrill Power!
