Are you sure? Sounds more like the brief manifesto of the Grark Millarson team during the Big Dave / Babe Race 2000 era.

Nice one! That's tomorrow's listening sorted

Suggestion: judges can chose what to put on their badges, as long as it identifies them. E.g. Giant Snr, both Ricos. Morphy got to like his nickname, and had Logistics & Commissary knock up a badge to that effect when he was putting in an order for extra-tight boots.

I seriously doubt that is the case, but I choose to believe you and you are 100 per cent correct.

Wasn't his name Morphy? I thought Morph was a nickname; like Guthrie being called 'Guth'.

Mine is to show what a wanker I am.

Awful lingerie aside, surely that's the Mimesis?

Well, yes. I'm not referring to the (frankly not that impressive) take on the mimesis. I'm talking about the hostage ins weird porno pose, the awful lifework, the terrible colours, and the fact the inside of that issue didn't even feature that strip.

Not to mention the sticky-looking white liquid oozing on to said lingerie-clad model...

You've been spying through my webcam again.

Thing is Thrax and Tommy died in book 1, so it doesn’t work to say it’s an alternative book 2.

The thing for me is Pete Milligan said he would explain it...but so far he hasn’t.

I don’t want 2000AD to go down the route of ignoring characters’ deaths (apart from Johnny Alpha of course).

I'd include Johnny's death.  I thought his death was a hauntingly beautiful moment and I was unhappy that it never really happened after all. 
As for Bad Company, for me it ended as soon as Danny became the Krool Heart.

I also found the occasional line of dialogue a little ropey, and that it veered uncomfortably into hack cliches from time to time - such as the Dr Evil villain

well.......whaddta think of this dialogue?
"You could learn from this guy Gaff, he's a god-damn one man slaughterhouse".
or my personal favourite
"Talk about beauty and the beast

— she's both."
(point being; BR was many things, but often not exactly Shakespeare)

Fair point, though the original had some truly beautiful dialogue too - 'time to die' may have been a throwaway macho line from Leon, but Roy's callback to it was truly moving and haunting (even if Rutger Hauer did just make it up himself).  I couldn't help feeling that the new one lacked some of that.

Also, I loved the revelation of what Roy's mission was in the original one - he was never going to kill Deckard at all; he just wanted him to share a replicant's sense of imminent mortality.  The new one was far less original plotwise; in fact something similar happened in a story set 2017 years ago.

And, like Jim said, it's not as fresh as the first one - we know this rainy, smoggy world already (and I've owned at least three see-through umbrellas in my time). 

But I liked 2049, all in all, the visuals and soundtrack alone were worth the asking price; and the storyline did justice to the old film. The radioactive zone where Deckard now lives is a thing of beauty, as is the giant dam. Though I'll still take the first one, every time.

You don't understand.  Once the Muslims and Mexicans can't get in, this will never happen again.

I've just read this whole thread and the one JBC linked to in an *ahem* enhanced state of mind,

Though I'm getting a bit too old myself for such enhanced states of mind and very rarely dabble in anything of the sort,

God almighty, some things have changed since then

I kind of liked the colour, personally - the flat day-glo primaries were perfect for the post-baggy / rave scene that the pre-Lloigor-victory story centred around.  Though I suspect, now I think of it, the post-apocalyptic black sun scenes may have worked better in black and white.

Haven't read all this thread (or indeed much of anything on the forum lately) but I liked the Zenith piece a lot. Always wondered what he was up to these days.

Also don't quite understand why Phase 4 wasn't held in high regard. It blew my mind twice in the space of twenty years. https://forums.2000ad.com/index.php?topic=38501.0

I feel left out now. I never had a kidney stone.  Couple of kidney infections is all, which are not painful, just very, very uncomfortable (essentially being in a permanent state of dying for a piss, and not being able to have one).

Jesus wept, who is still voting for these pricks?  And how can anyone with any sense stand by their Leave vote?  The mind boggles.

Mind you, I've just had a very strong coffee and am more angry about things than usual.  But noticing Jim's new avatar brought a smile to my face.

Well, that is a fair point. I'd also say, though, he's fairly well-informed on the topic of Ivanka's cup size.
