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



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.

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.

Couldn't get to Lawgiver and want some signed items? Well here you go.

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.

Books & Comics / Fay Dalton illustrates Bond, James Bond.
« on: 30 March, 2018, 09:14:33 am »


Possibly one of the reasons Fay Dalton is not working on the Megazine at the moment is that she is busy illustrating the Bond novels for the Folio society.

Megazine / Meg 394 - When Worlds Collide!
« on: 22 March, 2018, 11:23:24 am »


Thursday!

Great Alex Ronald cover.

Dredd: Krong Island. Still loving this and great reference to the cover of Prog #5. Apart from a slightly portly Dredd in one panel Jake Lynch's art is fantastic.

The Returners: A new thrill and intrigued enough to be looking forward to more. Nice to see a brief Gill Man reference.

Lawless. Astounding. Superlatives fail me as the town's situation gets even worse.

Charley's War feature. Looking forward to the definitive edition and interested in the details of the restoration process.

Robert Bliss and the Clown feature. Not read it yet.

Cursed Earth Koburn. Carlos and Koburn. 'Nuff said.

Dredd, The Dead World: What a stonking great issue of the Meg this is. Thrill buffers to maximum.

And there's Dreddlines and the floppy is Outlier vol 3.

A great Meg all round, one to pass on to any non believers.

The end of year Xmas prog 2016 signed at Forbidden Planet in London by Rufus Dayglo, Dave Kendall, Ian Edginton & Kek-W (on the front cover), and on the back cover by Frazer Irving.

This was donated to the cause by Chris Supersurfer (thanks, Chris, and for the wonderful Xmas card!). It is new and unread and in a comic bag with board, and posted to you in an A4 card backed envelope.

This is a 100% for charity auction for cancer research UK with free P&P so every penny you pay goes to a very worthy cause.

This is a copy of Crisis #1 from 1988 which I bought from thesaleroom.com. It is signed on the front cover by Dave Gibbons, Carlos Ezquerra, Pat Mills, the late, great Jim Baikie (RIP), and by John Smith. I don't know which event this was signed at, or the provenance I'm afraid.

Condition report. A 1988 comic which is in good clean, intact condition. Flat pages, all good inside, tiny nick tear (2mm) on middle of rear cover lower edge.

Pages: [1] 2 3 ... 11
