 Anyone really looking forward to getting the first figurine? I think we'll get the Nemesis figure in Jan/Feb? I would imagine the figurines will become real collectors items, especially the later ones like Dante and Dredd.

Journey to Hell is great, you philistines!  ;) Carlos's double-page spreads are absolutely glorious - I've said this many times, but it's easy to forget just how good he is at evoking a nightmarish ambience in his stories. Give him the chance to draw some zombies or skellingtons, and the man's in his infernal element - to wit, the 'Desert of the Living Dead' spread, which is as evocative as it gets.

Yep this... kinda... Journey to Hell is good, very good, but its not Portrait of a Mutant or Rage good but its damned good....

Is it Dante next? If so better start thinking about where I'm going to pick that up...

Maybe some,  just line work as the colours are sadly done by computer

If its anything like the Dredd stuff you have on sale now - that'd do, that'd done just fine. Superb stuff!

Not having the spreads in colour is indeed a huge disincentive to purchase, however.

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 recall I really enjoyed Bishops Fiends Novels, his comics version not so much for some reason.

I burble at length in the podcast about the Fiends novels, how the Stalingrad series got reconfigured from 8-page eps to 6-pagers, and the lost Fiends of the Rising Sun trilogy might have continued...

A common experience, it seems! I never found Likely Lads as utterly hilarious as my Dad did, but I definitely appreciated him thinking I would. Bewes was one of those actors who appeared effortlessly comfortable in everything, but still managed to inject an edge into otherwise cosy characters. RIP.

Pride and Prejudice, with Zombies.

Having HAD to watch countless cozzie dramas this finally made me like em...  funny if you know the source, and at last the characters have some decent motivation  :lol:
