Books & Comics / Re: Phoenix comic
« Last post by sheridan on Today at 01:38:34 am »
Comics were never the problem. Bonkers business models were. On that scale, the high street is broadly broken (mags for kids mostly being tat and activity pages that can be endlessly recycled). On that basis alone, it’s great The Phoenix is doing well. As for Rebellion, it would be a colossal punt to enter that market, especially on the newsstands.

Rebellion producing an all-ages comic?  They couldn't give it away ;-)

Other Reviews / Re: Brink - Book One - Dan Abnett & INJ Culbard

Only more Abnett love from me, too!
I would say that he took a little while to get going in his 2000AD career. Very early SinDex is charming but his other early work has all been far bettered since:

BlackLight, Sacho Panzer, Atavar, Black Atlantic are all OK thrills.

I don't remember anything about Black Atlantic - shall have to have a look at the Heroes... blog to see if it rings any bells.

A bit of a mixed bag this week.

Top thrills are Jaegir and Strontium Dog. Bit of a shame Jaegir is taking a break.

As an individual episode Sinister Dexter was only ok, but it does raise an interesting question for future stories.

I have now completely lost what is going on in Anderson and will re-read it when it is complete.

Bringing up the rear, sad to say is Dredd. This current story did nothing for me and I’m glad it is over. The reveal at the end isn’t much of a reveal really and I won’t be waiting with bated breath for this plot line to return.

That said, will we ever get a 'complete run' of Slaine?  Will it ever end?  (a question I tend to ask mid way through each episode at the moment)

Does anyone know if the Slaine volumes will comprise the entire run?

You'd bloody hope so, with 13 volumes...!

Secret Commonwealth, with a bit of luck.

General / Re: SPRING Short Story Comp - OUT OF THIS WORLD

                                                       Out of this World.

Judge Georgio studied the creature before him as it sat strapped into the restraint chair of the Containment Cube. The Justice Department Bio scans were unable to identify its cell structure, species or origin. The fluidity of speech it commanded, however, did indicate familiarity with humans.

'So what happened next?' said Georgio directly at the Alien. The creature stirred but answered. 'Well, this metal headed guy just popped up, yelled "I'm Mean machine Angel!" and proceeded to headbutt me. We struggled, then I found myself here holding that Matter Transporter thingy. Mr Angel must have been wearing it.'

'It's stolen property, Xenos which might implicate you as an accessory to theft.' Georgio stated. 'Then what?'

The alien shifted in his seat and looked at Georgio through slitted eyes.

'Well, I arrived outside a vast building-'

'Block.' corrected Georgio.

'Block? Yes, then someone tried to rob me, a mob of crooks formed and attacked my personage, your Police-'

'Judges!' said Judge Georgio irritably.

'Showed up to Gas and arrest me! Frankly, from the little, I've seen here I want to go home, out of this world back to my timeline.' 

'Have you a name?' the Judge asked all too aware the security implications an illegal Alien arriving unchecked in Mega-City One would have.

Muscle rippling the Alien bounded from the chair and dashed itself through the plexiglass screen knocking Judge Georgio onto the cell's floor. The reinforced Containment Door shattered under the creatures mighty blows, and throughout the building, Alarms sounded, Searchlights blazed, and the noise of booted feet rang on metal walkways.

Injured Judge Georgio, had drawn his Lawgiver, but the Xenos knocked the weapon from his grasping fingers. Boot knife in hand, the Lawman, launched himself at the perp -to crash into an empty wall as the creature, displaying a near supernatural turn of speed, hurled itself into the corridor outside. 'Matter Transporter, this way.' it murmured to itself.

Stunned, the Judge looked towards the extraterrestrial as it crouched in the corridor. Justice Department never found out anything more about this Alien, where it came from or what if anything it wanted. Only its name remained on file. 'Who are you?' Spluttered Judge Georgio. The creature smiled at him and answered.

'Nemesis.' it said.

Age has something to do with it, but it's well known that Dredd sells more than anything else that 2000 AD has.

Even so the fan page for our Strontium Dog short has twice as many likes as the Hachette 2000 AD page, and it's not like we push that much.

Dredd page has presumably been live for 2-3 years longer though so that could be an artifcat of age.  Or it could be down to changes in FB's algorithms over that time preiod which mean the ultimate collection's page is not getting promoted to as many FB users as the Dredd one did.
