Welcome to the board / Oldie but a Newbie
« Last post by broodblik on Today at 01:34:21 pm »
Hi, I am also one of those guys that was lurking from the shadows waiting or rather procrastinating about whether to post or not.

My knowledge was limited to the American Comics and stuff like Tintin and Asterix. My first introduction to the Prog was way back in Prog 374.  I can still remember my first Dredd “The Wreckers” with great fondness. Rogue quickly became my favorite. From that day I was hooked on British Comics (reading Eagle and Battle)

But then came the 90s and the combination of the summer assault let by Millar/Morrison/Ennis quickly killed my love for the Prog and I stopped my subscription.

I re-started my subscription again almost a third into the Day of Chaos epic. Getting the Prog locally in the News Agents became virtually impossible and the Postal Services here is as trustworthy as Blackblood. The digital route became a blessing (the getting use to not holding the Prog is the most mind-boggling thing).

It took 3 or 4 episodes for Altered Carbon to really get its hooks in for me, but I've been blitzing through it ever since and really loving it.

I've never read the novels and the show does do a bit of a messy job of establishing a lot of things, it's about 7 episodes before you get I got a solid chunk of backstory and actually figured out what the whole envoy thing was all about and what the motivations of the different factions were and that kind of thing. All the sort of stuff that would ideally be laid out in the first episode I guess, but the style and swagger of the whole thing carried me through until I was properly engrossed.

It probably helps that I unashamedly love all things cyberpunk, it's just an aesthetic that pushes my happiness buttons really hard, and this has really clicked with me.

It also has one of the coolest, most badass uses of White Zombie I've seen, and the fact that in a show that I've heard people call a rip-off of Blade Runner, they've straight up used a track written about Blade Runner showed a nice bit of self-awareness that it knows exactly how heavily it wears its inspirations and is fine with that.

Thomas Was Alone, brilliant. A really pleasant relaxing puzzle platformer with a perfectly tuned learning curve, a fabulously engaging narration and a lovely post-rock style soundtrack. Exactly what I needed after Grim Fandango convincing me I was now too dumb for puzzle games, this made me feel a bit cleverer again!

ABC Warriors is definitely a book of 2 halves, the chronological gap between The Meknificent Seven and The Black Hole is really apparent.  Enjoyed both for different reasons but The Black Hole is where it really kicked off for me.  The art is stunning and the story is less "childish", for want of a better word.  Can't wait for the next volume and the conclusion of that arc.

Couldn't agree more. The early stuff is fun but juvenile, but the Black Hole is gorgeous and totally involving - it feels like the spin-off/sequel to Nemesis that it is. And both Bisley and SMS are extremely talented - though quite different in style.

The articles in both collections have been rather good. I just hope there are fewer in the 2000 AD one that, when you get to the end of a book, basically sum things up by saying: "Well, that was a load of shite, wasn't it?" Because, frankly, why then print it?
