News / Launch event for Robbie Morrison's first novel, Edge of the Grave
« on: 10 February, 2021, 04:28:50 PM »
In case you haven't heard, Robbie Morrison's first novel is being published by Pan Macmillan on March 4th. Edge of the Grave is a crime thriller set in 1932 Glasgow, a city still recovering from the Great War; split by religious division and swarming with razor gangs.. Having read an advance copy I can say 2000 AD readers who enjoy Nikolai Dante or Shimura will savour every page!

There is a free online launch event on Thursday March 4th at 7.30pm in which Robbie will discuss his novel and career with former 2000 AD editor David Bishop. To sign up for the event email weethreeindies@gmail.com and they will send you the link the day before the event.

Warner Bros. is heading into space with "Dan Dare," closing a deal for the feature rights to the British property with Sam Worthington attached to star.
Basil Iwanyk ("Clash of the Titans") will produce through his Thunder Road banner.

"Dan Dare," created by Frank Hampson, first appeared as a comic in 1950 and centered on a gallant chief pilot of the Interplanet Space Fleet. Time frame was the 1990s and the complex adventures were set on planets presumed to have extraterrestrial life.

Dare, described as the British equivalent of Buck Rogers, also appeared in radio programs and a TV series, "Dan Dare: Pilot of the Future."

Worthington, who's been attached to "Dan Dare" for several months, recently wrapped "The Fields" for producer Michael Mann, and will next be seen in John Madden's "The Debt" opposite Helen Mirren. He also recently announced an imprint deal with Radical Publishing under which his Full Clip Prods. will create content for comicbooks and films.

WB-based Iwanyk is a producer on Ben Affleck's crime drama "The Town," due out in September., and "Clash of the Titans 2," with Worthington returning as the lead

Warner execs are Sarah Schechter, Ollie Madden and Matt Milam. Kent Cubena is overseeing for Thunder Road.

General / Question re Slick Dickens
« on: 19 February, 2009, 05:44:36 PM »
Could somebody remind me what happened to Truman Kaput and Slick Dickens in Prog 2002? I believe that's the only reappearance of the character and his creator since Prog 505 - but I could well be wrong - and can't lay my hands on a copy.

Ta very much!


General / Whatever happened to Slick Dickens?
« on: 28 May, 2008, 10:22:20 AM »
He first appeared not long after Prog 500, made a brief return in the Megazine during 1993 and another comeback in Prog 2002, IIRC.

So, what happened to fictional construct Slick Dickens and his creator Truman Kaput during the Prog 2002 tale? Have either reappeared since?

Help! / Just another Maniaa Monday
« on: 07 May, 2008, 05:01:42 PM »
Does anyone recall a race of aliens from an early 2000 A.D. one-off strip, called the Maniaa? They were humanoid, with scaly faces and black hair.

I ask on behalf of a friend who's not sure if he dreamed this story, or whether it actually saw print...
