Prog / Prog 2119 - Cops and Robos
« on: 16 February, 2019, 02:36:45 pm »

Cover is by Luke Preece and looks great, although there may be some chat about Dredd’s back armour.

Machine Law continues to drop bombshells on us.

And we find out more about why Jaegir is in the Bonegrinder.

Plus 6 letters for the Beast.

Four great charity auctions all generously donated to the cause by Stephen Buttonman himself.

First up the Cam Kennedy subscribers' exclusive print set.

Then the second volume of Ace Trucking co from the ultimate collection. Includes the letter from Tharg that Stephen received for getting another letter in the prog.

Dredd: Cold War trade paperback with another letter from Tharg!

And Barrie Tomlinson's history of Roy of the Rovers: Real Roy of the Rovers Stuff.
Tempted by this one myself.

All are 99p starts, all are free p&p from the generous Buttonman, and all are 100% for Cancer Research UK.
You know the score, make a bid, or make a share on social media. Every penny helps.

And a thousand thanks, Stephen.


The subscribers’ John Higgins print set donated to the cause by our very own Buttonman. Brand new and straight to you from the creator of the Beast “letters to Tharg” database.


And Ken Reid’s Creepy Creations hardback collection donated by Robo-Keef himself. As ever all proceeds go straight to cancer research UK with free postage. Dig deep into your Christmas pocket money, and that festive generosity, as the fundraising pushes on into the 8000s. Thanks to the kind donors.



Classifieds / Free progs to a good home
« on: 06 December, 2018, 08:51:41 am »
I've got three boxes of progs I want to get rid of.
About 350 issues from about Prog 150 onward.
You can see a list of them here:


Also a whole bunch of Megs and a fair few more recent progs.

They are in three magazine sized comic boxes, they are mostly in bags and boards, and are free to anyone who wants them.

The only catch is you need to be able to pick them up from either my home in Ely, near Cambridge, or my workplace near Wisbech in North Cambridgeshire.

Anybody want them?

Prog / Prog 2109 - Shark-Infested Waters
« on: 24 November, 2018, 11:12:05 am »

A key prog which arrived a day early this week. Thank you, Mr Tharg.

Cracking cover by Cliff Robinson with Dylan Teague's colours being the star for me.

Dredd: The Small House wraps up in 8 pages with a new iconic Dredd panel by Williams, Flint, Blythe and Parkhouse. "This is my house!"

Brink. I don't know what she's doing but I'm fascinated to find out. A Le Carre triple cross in a space tincan? The Spy who came in from the Cold Equations.

Sinister Dexter returns with a voyage to the bottom of the sea and 10 pages.

Kingdom: Alpha and Omega continues with the Abnett droid writing 3/4 of the prog and the last page ad is for his Lawless strip in the Meg as well.

A cracking prog with a superb Dredd moment. Has that page gone already, Wiggz?

Couldn't make it to the Arthur Ranson signing at Orbital? Or to Brumcon?
Or maybe you would just like to contribute something to Cancer research UK at this sad time for 2000AD fandom.

Here's an opportunity to help.

First up: The new edition of Mazeworld and an original sketch both signed by Arthur Ranson at Orbital comics in that London last night.


The Brumcon poster showing John and Carlos reflected in Dredd's visor, signed by John and by the artists Damian Edwardson.

A Carlos print of Dredd and Alpha signed by John Wagner

Progs 1977 and 2078 signed by John

Progs 1380 and 1664 signed by John

Two Megazines and a Lawless art print signed by Phil Winslade

Three progs signed by Ian Edginton

Two progs signed by Staz Johnson

And a Rogue Trooper by newest art droid Paul Williams

All 99p starts with free p&p and 100% of the price goes to Cancer Research UK.

No jokes this time, cancer is terrible. I believe one day it will be either completely preventable or treatable. The 2000AD community is helping to bring that day a little bit closer.

I have a couple of other items with multiple signatures which I will be raffling for the same cause sometime in the run up to Christmas.

Cheers, all.

Megazine / Meg 398 - Meet the Strange Brigade
« on: 17 July, 2018, 01:00:01 pm »

Great Tiernen Trevallion cover for a new thrill.

Judge Dredd Razorjack story ends with fabby art from John Higgins.

The Returners reveals how you make a modern Invunche, sort of.

Devlin Waugh gets in amonsgt them.

Karl Stock writes an interesting article about getting a Future Shock published in the prog. Should be of interest to many.

Then a two page special on the new Mongoose miniatures Strontium Dog game.

Chopper blows stuff up with a Kaleidoscope.

Finally the new title story from Gordon Rennie, Tiernen Trevallion, and Annie Parkhouse. Looks beautiful and starts very promisingly. It is another secret agency that battles occult threats for Her Maj's government which hopefully will tie in somehow with Ol' Harry Absalom and his crew.

Classifieds / Four Dark Judges enamel badges. New. Charity auction
« on: 01 July, 2018, 10:20:24 am »
So I was in that London to meet Robo-Keef himself and record a podcast episode about upcoming Treasury of British comics releases.
Keith very kindly donated this set of the Dark Judges enamel in badges to the cause and here they are for your bidding delectation.

99p start, free p&p, next day dispatch, padded envelope, optional extra picture of Pete Wells in the local Greggs. Have at ‘em!


General / Top ten Dredds and top ten non-Dredd thrills
« on: 11 June, 2018, 01:18:16 pm »

As discussed on the podcast, and as suggested by AlexF, we are compiling two top ten lists.

Your top ten Dredd stories of all time.
And your top ten non-Dredd thrills.

Try and put them in order as well and send them to me at MCBCpodcast@gmail.com

We chatted about some of the rules on the Facebook page and the podcast thread here, and decided that for long running recurring characters you should vote for individual volumes or story arcs e.g. The Horned God, Halo Jones book 3, Zenith 4 etc

And if a story appeared in the Judge Dredd title then it's a Dredd story. But anything that appeared under its own title goes into the non-Dredd list.

So Midnight Surfer and Oz are Dredd stories, but Song of the Surfer is not. If that makes sense.

If anyone's vote needs clarification I will contact them.

Cheers all

Classifieds / Lawgiver signed items for charity auctions on eBay
« on: 28 May, 2018, 03:48:07 pm »
Plenty to enjoy at the splendid Lawgiver IV with awesome art droids, some fabby cosplay (the Synthetti Man was my favourite), and plenty of great conversation with all the lovely 2000AD fans. One of the highlights for me was the number of people who very kindly gave me items for my charity auctions. Big thanks to Tim, Dave, Steven, Ryan, Rachael, Sheridan, AlexF, Guy, and Rex Banner. I confess I was quite moved by the genorosity displayed. Thank you, all you lovely peeps.

Megazine / 396 - The Razor's Edge
« on: 13 May, 2018, 11:48:35 am »

Lovely cover by John Higgins - one to get signed at Lawgiver 4

Dredd vs Razorjack. Feels like Dredd coming up against an Iain M Banks novel. Nice to see the taking a team through the portal story. Carroll, Higgins and Sally Hurst on the covers. Good stuff

The Returners. Enjoyed this as well. Reminds me of a bunch of other things including the terifying Invunche.

Chopper. Looks gorgeous but I haven't taken in all the story yet.

Cursed Earth Koburn. Love it and bring me more please.

Dredd v Dead. The absoulte highlight of this Meg for me. Story is great, Flint's art superb and the finale is a shock. Shame that we won't be getting any more from the Dredd 3D version in the future.

Articles about the recent Dredd novels, and the new IDW series which seems to be going back to the 2012 movie storyline again (?) but I'll give it a go.

The floppy is Block Judge from progs 1900-1909. Wagner and Ezquerra proceedural with a Greg Staples cover, so nothing wrong here at all.
