Looking forward to it!

Where did all these fecking spambots come from?  They're dredging up threads from 20 years ago.

Aye, because no-one in these parts would ever do that would they?

I'm guilty myself, but to be fair to me I don't write in Cryllic when I do it. Uncle Vlad is watching us!

Sorry to hear it, Hawk.  Onwards and upwards.

Can't help but wonder if this was rushed into the prog at the expense of build up, in order to meet production deadlines in lockdown. Tharg probably has a drawer full of mega epics in case a page is late.

Makes sense.  It's kind of lots of shit happening suddenly without much buildup and I'm not sure I care wnough about what's happening.  And yeah, where are those Brit Cit judges?  Brit Cit has suddenly become Manhattan in Halo Jones' world.

Just dredged up a Johnnystress quote from an old thread:

gaze into the face of fear

gaze into the fist of dredd (dread)

wordplay- maybe pun isn't correct

All this time and only now I see the double meaning in the prog's most famous quote.

And this week's ironic infection prize goes to Jair Bolsonaro.  Thoughts and prayers are with him. But not too many.

Definitely. Got through the rest of Episode 3 today. Great stuff. Also I am a huge fan of Stewart Lee - I knew he liked comics, but had no idea he was into 2000ad.  (I met him after one of his shows, and he's actually a really nice guy, despite his absolute wanker stage persona.)

Haven't read the prog yet, but that's truly horrible (and possibly a bit of a spoiler).

Also reminds me of the reason Godpleton was banned. Less said the better, really.

Please read in a Ray Winstone voice.

Like that Judge Dredd Playstation game years ago, where they'd clearly run out of American-style voice-actors and made half the characters cockney. 
Great podcast and great grail page.  As is so often the case listening to Eamonn and his guests, I'm now dying to go back and read what they were talking about.

Fantastic.  What a legend!  Thanks, Dan.

(I once thought he was a pseudonym for John Wagner too.  Maybe he is, and Wagner has sneaked his way into winning a competition he isn't allowed to win.)

GREAT doc!


Sneering aside, you're right - I'm halfway through and I'm loving it.  Thanks for the link; just what the doctor ordered for another night in with shitty weather outside.

EDIT - I've had 'Their Law' by the Prodigy / PWEI stuck in my head all evening (was even singing the PWEI lyrical version loudly on my motorbike today), and now here it is accompanying the history of Dredd. Perfection

So here's my question for fellow boarders now that the Pandemic is sort-of, semi, quasi, possibly so long as we can keep Bournemouth beach clear, officially 'over' for now ...:

Forgot to say, while I appreciate you're being about as tentative in your optimism as it's humanly possible to be, I still think you're being a bit too hopeful.

Alright, I don't live in Britain, but my mother is English and a large proportion of my family live there. And I know Ireland hasn't been much better.

But... For me it's the Cummings fiasco. The mad rush to protect their own precious little spin doctor when he'd quite clearly broken the rules.  If ever there was a moment that proved that Johnson and Co see themselves as an untouchable social stratum that's way above that of the riff raff, that was it.

It made a mockery of the whole system of lockdown rules and spat in the face of those who obeyed them. It also marked the effective end of those rules - if the people who made the rules don't give a flying fuck about them, why should anyone else?
