: 40th Anniversary Prog
: Tjm86 25 November, 2016, 08:26:19 PM
CBR has posted this article (http://www.cbr.com/exclusive-2000ad-reveals-carlos-ezquerras-40th-anniversary-cover/) about the 40th anniversary prog.  Great to see Señor Ezquerra given the honours for such an important event.  Up to his usual standard as well.

Being a little nitpicky but the article credits Starlord as a 'spinoff' which is not really 100% accurate.  More of a 'failed competitor' really.

Never mind all that…! New Nikolai Dante by Morrison & Fraser!

Well I can see certain corners of the 2000ad internet fandom smugly saying 'I told you so' with their normal 'guile'. I'm a bit excited by this and I'm intrigued to see where they go with it. Hope they don't tamper with the ending, but we'll see.

Never mind Nikolai Dante! I've been waiting flippin' ages to find out if both halves of Zombo are alright!

(What's the bet this'll be a one-off, out of continuity story, and I still won't find out?)

I'm delighted at a new Dante strip, but I'm also thrilled that the Durham Red strip is being written/co-written by a woman. :) Does Lauren Beukes have any previous credits? I don't recognise her name.

Beukes is a writer with a good few novels and short stories under her belt, but I don't think she's written any comics. If memory serves, she did provide the intro for the recent Rebellion Halo Jones collection though, and she was on an episode of the Thrillcast so I assume that those appearances perhaps helped with setting up writing for Durham Red.

She's got a Vertigo series out at the moment, Survivors Club, and also appears in the Future Shock documentary.

Ah, cool - I've not been keeping up with US comics so I didn't realise she had a series on the go. Will be interested to see what this Durham Red is like.

: TordelBack 26 November, 2016, 09:01:24 AM
If it's anything like her Japanese Rapunzel story in Fairest it'll be... interesting, if nothing else. Never thought I'd be saying this, but I really like it when Tharg puts new writers on these 'stalled' characters - Beeby's Anderson was a real highlight of this year's Prog for me. Durham Red could certainly use a fresher take than the Young Durham stuff from a while back.
: Re: 40th Anniversary Prog
: Taryn Tailz 26 November, 2016, 04:05:11 PM
Well I've seen the Future Shock documentary, so I'm obviously more familiar with her than I thought.

Excited to see a new take on Durham Red, a character who hasnt had the best of it even from her first appearance for my money  - a female (co)writer might be just the thing she needs and if Lauren Beukes is the person I think she is from the podcasts, she seemed to have a very good handle on 2000AD, so bring it on

Saw the announcement yesterday and my eyes nearly ruptured at the news of new Nikolai Dante. Even if it's just a one-off, it'll have a hard time NOT being the best thing I read next year.

In any other occation the news of new Zombo would be the highlight for me, but gosh darn it, Zombo is a top 10 thrill where as Dante is a top 3!
: Re: 40th Anniversary Prog
: Leigh S 26 November, 2016, 04:32:37 PM
I think it is heartening that we have Zombo, Dante and a new writing team on an older strip to balance the "classics" there - hopefull a new new series to fill in for the one offs in that line up afterwards

Yes, I saw that.
But was thinking maybe the 40th anniversary prog will comes in multiple covers.

Thinking about it; Most likely the work in progress piece is one of the interior pages, and simply features a fun cameo from Mr Alpha, and Ms Jones.

I thought the 40th anniversary prog was a one-off in addition to the regular prog so perhaps it will test the water for a proper return of some characters in due course.

Very exciting.

Most excited for a Wagner / Doherty Dredd, though. Any idea of the plot?

Oh, and Zombo was one of the first graphic novels I purchased after I got back into reading comics, so i'll be looking forward to seeing what Ewing and the brilliant Henry Flint have cooked up.

Is it worth it to get caught up on Nikolai Dante? Maybe as good a reason to start getting caught up and purchase the collections?

All good wishes to Pete Doherty.
Loved watching him develop from Young Death and Justice 1 - both stories elevated by his art, to a truly world class artist (the early episodes of Judgment Day were stunning drawing me into the story despite its shortcomings).
Looking forward to the next Mega Collection - hoping for both Roadkill and Old Wounds.
Not surprised in the least that people speak so well of him, somehow that warmth seems to permeate his work.

No dress uniform is complete without a sword even if it's not going to be used!

Is that a sure, sure thing that subscribers need to order it? Usually it is the case for one off stories separate from the ongoing stuff but according to the description on the webstore it will be indeed the beginning of ongoing new stories arc.
That's an odd thing or perhaps I have missed something  :-*.
As subscribers do we have received a mail from Rebellion to tells us that we will not have part one of the new stories unless we buy this 40th anniversary special prog? I barely have time these days to check FB, Tweeter or even the thrill mail, and I have checked randomly the store today.

I can't see anything on the shop which implies they're part one.

All the promo I've seen has said there's a common red/ruby theme and they're standalone.

It has definitely been said they're not part of the subscription. They're a separate purchase like the sci-fi specials.

Ah, so you ordered both James? I just ordered A and just got the notification for that one. So they're telling us the ones we preordered are available then. As I already sent my card details, I won't order it again. Could get a bit expensive.  :lol:

Actually, I wonder if they're doing it this way to give us the opportunity to order the digital versions as well, if we want them, as I don't think they were available for pre-order.

I don't really double dip for format, and usually stick with digital, but as this is a bumper seminal issue, I decided to go the traditional paper route for this, but I know there are plenty who like both for convenience.

Great news indeed. Don't think I will quadruple dip this time ( unlike I did with Prog 2000). Just the 2 will do.

Quaequam Blag! That's ghafflebette!

'Quaequam Blag!' because this risks busting my carefully planned two TCUs per year of progs scheme.

(I realise this is a good problem to have. :lol:)

Yeah there are a load of these in my local comic shop (Sheffield Space Centre) and if anyone wants one I'll try to make a trip there to pick one up.

Cardiff FP still had a good 10 or so copies of the Carlos cover when I was in last week.  May well be in over the weekend again if anyone is still chasing this down and wants it picked up / posted.
