Classifieds / FOR SALE: 2000AD progs, March 2010 - Dec 2011.
« on: 17 December, 2011, 07:06:30 PM »
Location: Edinburgh
Price: Cover price on these is about 180 quid, but make an offer.

I'm in the process of shifting my life from Scotland back to Australia, which, unfortunately for me, means offloading the last two years worth of progs.

What I've got is everything from Prog 1676 (March 2010) right up to Prog 1763 (last week) - that's 89 progs, including the massive end-of-year prog 2010. I've also got assorted JD Megazines, a few Clints, Dodgem Logic, etc. (and my girlfriend's Vogues, if you're that way inclined).

There's some great stuff in there for someone who's been out of the fold lately, including two Zombo stories, Ichabod Azrael, Damnation Station, some great Dante, Savage, Strontium Dog: The Life and Death of Johnny Alpha, Kingdom, Dandridge, Absolam... and a whole lot more.

Everything is in the condition it was in when it came out of the subscription envelope, so almost all as-new.

I'm in Edinburgh, I don't have transport, so pick up (between now and December 30th) would be ideal. Open to offers for the lot, folks!

Thanks Dash!

Well - that's a pretty poor selection. Skip!

Dear Hivemind,

It's been... 2 years since my last post.

I've just bought Megacity Masters 01 as a birthday present to myself and I'm enjoying the hell out of it. Some of this annual stuff I've never seen before, and some of the prog 400ish stuff I must have forgotten, but its bloody great.

Has anyone got a copy of the second one, and if so, whats in it?

Quote from: "Mogradjinn"
According to Jock (artist on Andy Diggle's the Losers, amongst other things) on Twitter:

"On train back from london. Had a meeting with DNA films about the Dredd movie... Went GREAT. Chatted for hours with writer Alex Garland, producer Andrew McDonald and head of fx Michael Elson. Read the script. Colour this Dredd fan happy....okay, VERY happy...."

That sounds fucking excellent.

Garland wrote 28 days Later, which is enough for me. Clearly not too original, but as a loose adaptation of The Day of the Triffids with zombies its fantastic.

Prog / Re: A message from the writer of STALAG 666
« on: 27 October, 2008, 10:31:46 AM »
As an infrequent boarder here the controversy over Stalag 666 has completely slipped me by, but I have to say that any overt negativity directed at this story leaves me baffled. It's a solid genre piece, not exactly original, but entirely readable and very old-school 2000AD, and I've been reading it first or second most weeks. The idea that someone should feel *that* strongly about it is (as others have already said) mental, pathetic, saddening and hilarious all at the same time.

I'm an aspiring tooth writer myself, and with a few rejections under my belt I can't imagine what that guy would send *me* through the post.

White Chicks. I don't know what I expected, but this film offended me with its shittiness.

Scary Movie II. One of the only films I've never bothered to finish.

Crash. WTF is this? This won best picture? This really sets me right fucking off.

I'd love to see what some female blood could bring 2000AD (apart from Zippy Couriers). Even if 2000AD has quite a good range of strong female characters (cass anderson, halo jones, jena makarov, aimee nixon, hershey off the top of my head), SF as a whole is still such a testosterone-fuelled genre.

Each week when I see an exciting, vibrant cover on 2000AD (or not, as the case may be) my girlfriend sees men dressed as pirates hitting each other really hard with the butts of their guns.  The times she has taken notice of the covers are recent Megs with Tank Girl by Rufus Dayglo, Cass Anderson by Brendan McCarthy and Treasure Steel by Lee Garbett.

There's always Pia Guerra on Y: The Last Man and Doctor Who: The Forgotten, and Leah Moore.  Neither of which I know much about.  :?:

I'd nominate something from about prog 1025, one of the first progs I picked up as a wee one.  It was a 'Vector 13' about a man being stalked by his own voice on the telephone, with lovely bluey-yellowy art by Sean Phillips (I think).  A lot of those early V13s gave me the willies when I was about 10.

On the lighter side, the Fox spokesman's name is Gregg Brilliant.

Well the 'point' of subscribing to me is that, living in Oz, it gives me the prog a good seven weeks in advance of the newsagent for a good deal less cash.  As far as gifts go, I got a beanie, a Glimmer Rats GN and nothing since about 2002.  I don't know when my anniversary is, either.  I'm a scummy monthly payer by financial necessity.

You're all lovely.

Even  if I just lurk a lot of the time, its such a relief to at least read voices of sanity after sometimes not finding much evidence of that in real life, or the rest of the internet.

Plus I don't know anybody who reads 2000AD in the real world.  Or any other comics for that matter.

When I was about 15, 'Tu-plang' appeared as graffiti in a Dredd strip in the prog because of this board, which made my day at the time.
