Welcome to the board / Re: Welcome to 2000AD Online
« on: 23 November, 2017, 09:10:06 am »
Hi Timon, you will need to get your image hosted online somewhere and then post the link here using the 'square bracket' tags.

In the selection of buttons above the post, the button below the B for bold is an 'insert image' button (If you hover over it, it will tell you what each of these does) press that and then insert you image link into the space where the * is.

An example is below where I've broken the tags...


Hope that helps.

the way I perceive this is that the costuming is aiming for a nostalgic feel, whereby the colours and patterns evoke memories from the parents watching the show of doctors they watched in the past. This would then, in turn lead to increased recognition that this new actor is still 'the Doctor'.

The timing of the initial broadcast (presumably still going to be around the 6.15 slot) is, to me, aiming this at  'sitting and eating tea in front of the telly' people. Families hopefully.

If the BBC can get a younger group of kids watching then great, as it will help with the long term survival of the brand (after all- the majority of Mickey Mouse cartoons are created for a pre-school audience) and having parents watching too will only help.

I'm just hoping for decent plots- I've started watching the last season of Capaldi and I'm quite enjoying it so far.

Aye, Dave is a complete gent, so pleased to see his work gracing the pages to the Galaxies Greatest properly.

I'd also point out the writing comp as well to folk. It's just as valid as the art comp, IMO, and take as much work to run too.

I love this place- it really is the only 'forum' I use and I'm here most days...

I thoroughly enjoyed that- maybe more because I had managed to lower my expectations. It wasn't as good as Wonder woman, but it was streets ahead of Suicide Squad.

Both available in the 2000 AD meg shop: https://shop.2000ad.com/catalogue/megazines/2017/MEG380P

Here, here.

Smaller gigs offering free entry are a great way of increasing the readership.

Need to sort my gigs for next year...

Goaty- each of us does what we like for the advent- but I am working on a Zarjaz daily for christmas similarly to the ones in previous years but I'm a bit late getting going so don't want to commit to a day on the advent till I know the strip will be ready...

Judge Dredd- Frostee the Snow-bot from last year...

I've just started drawing the Zarjaz strip, but doubt it will be finished soon enough to slot into an open day otherwise I'd bagsy one...

I'd throw Ewing & Holdens 'Dead Signal' in there as well.

A man in a hot air balloon realised he was lost.

He reduced altitude to try to figure out where he was when he spotted a woman below. He descended further and shouted, "Excuse me, can you help me? I appear to be a little off course. I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The woman below replied, "You're in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You're between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude."

Amazed by what she said, the balloonist stated "You must be in Information Technology!"

"I am," replied the woman, "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I've no idea what to make of your information and the fact is that I am still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help at all. If anything, you've delayed my trip."

The woman below smiled and responded, "You must be in Management."

"I am," replied the balloonist, "but how did you know?"

"Well," said the woman, "you don't know where you are or where you're going. You have risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise, which you've no idea how to keep, and you expect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it's my fault."

I've said a few times to my kids that if someone had told me at age 7-9 (when I really began reading comics) that I'd be able to see a fully realised Hulk, Iron Man, Cap and any of the others I'd have scoffed.

I always try to watch these films with that sense of wonder in mind as the grown-up I've become is far too cynical.

I'm just working my way through this years annual and really enjoyed Sharky's Jikan story. Loads more to read as well!

From memory there were 2 floppies worth of material- so approx 110 pages. I'd have to dig 'em out to check what issues of the Meg they were with, though.

Jade- The VC's was finished off in the floppies earlier this year. I don't think they are to be included in the collection.
