I meant to ask if anybody has seen that King Carlos picture before - disclaimer said they were placeholder covers, so I'm guessing it's been used on a collection before?

It was used on the US version of the "Strontium Dog: The Early Cases" GN - http://dc.wikia.com/wiki/Strontium_Dog:_The_Early_Cases_(Collected)

In a bizarre turn of events, 15 year old HdE actually ended up with two Gameboys back in the day. I don't know how that happened, but I remember being puzzled at the time as to why the games commanded such a hefty price considering the limitations foisted upon them. I always found them difficult to see on the dot matrix screen, and as a result, I very quickly lost interest in the console. In hindsight, it's a shame, because so many of the Gameboy's ports and original releases had a unique charm.

Most of the time it was because Nintendo charged a £10 manufacturing fee for the cartridge (or more if you wanted battery saves etc.), so after retail had taken it's cut, that didn't leave the developer with much change from £25...

More importantly what the heck is ‘folk horror’?

It's that creeping feeling up your spine when you're having a quiet pint in your local and see a bunch of hairy blokes walk in with various fiddles, guitars, and accordions...

Yes, Rebellion now own The Trigan Empire
This has to be the big takeaway from this news. Absolutely immense. It's only been available in mahoosively expensive collections or random stories in a couple of collections, for decades. Please make this a priority for release.

Preferably in nice big A3 hardbacks :)

They own 13th floor as it originated in Scream

I always thought it was pronounced 'scawn-yeh'

Hmm, I'm missing out the mystical power of Seven, as taught to us by Deadlock and Uncle Pat.  Must slot in another meal somewhere.  Midnight feast, maybe?

If he was born in 2150, he is minus 132.  Z

Also, only 14 years before another Nuclear war in the Dredd-verse :)

When Britain gets nuked so hard that Brit Cit disappears and all pre-Megacity towns grow back again.

Obviously a deliberate design decision by the reconstruction committee...

Something like this, maybe?

Yeah, that looks like how I'd imagine him to be.

Thanks, folks!  The lack of consistency is a bit surprising (and mildly annoying); colours really do seem to be all over the shop.  I know Massimo wouldn't have done any colour work on the early Prog covers (Tom Frame et al. were on duty there I imagine) but Prog 232 seems to have had colouring applied directly to the original artwork (something I've never seen on another cover from this period).  This may have been as a colour guide for subsequent colourist working on an acetate overlay but whatever the reason I can't imagine anyone other than Massimo having done it*

I might go with either grey or pale blue skin and darker grey (or possibly some shade of blue) for the hair (it depends on what colours are available for the bits I need to use).  At least the fact that there seems to have been no standard palette means that I'm as right (or wrong) as the next guy.

* unless some unfortunate owner of the original came home one day to find his kids had coloured it in, in which case they did a very good job.

One of the more grey-y blue colours would probably work for the skin tone (Sand-blue?).

I also wish they’d bring back Moviedrome. I’m always going on about this - I would always set the timer on the video and watch Moviedrome with Alex Cox followed by whatever movie (or movies) had been featured. Such a great way to be introduced to some cult classics.

Yeah, I watched many great films on Moviedrome, or on Jonathan Ross's The Incredibly Strange Film Show.

Rebellion never muck up the art do they, I don't think I've ever played a bad looking Rebellion game! I hope it does well for them, it might have has less mass appeal than Sniper Elite or ZAT in terms of themes. There's also actually a section of people (small I'm sure) that think the game is racist! I've got the cash now so I'll be buying as soon as Bill Gates has finished with his soldering iron..

Racist?  Why?  Because it's about empire?

Yep - the Eurogamer review makes a big point about how Colonialism = bad...

Considering the current climate now's the perfect time to bring back Big Dave.

True - he'd sort the EU out into giving us a good deal.
