Ah bollix, I thought there was a series of Button Man in production.

Exactly what I thought.

My disappointment knows no bounds.

Happy Deathday

I was looking forward to this.

Sadly it's not very good. Not good at all. 4/10

My books arrived today too, although Ace Trucking for some reason looked like someone had thrown it down the stairs. Sigh.

As did I, except I was sitting in the garden reading the paper grrr.

Too lazy to walk into town and have arranged re-delivery for tomorrow.

I have the Wolfen on Blu ray.
This Blu ray is region free and pretty cheap.
Excellent film.

Received the 8th and final issue of this a week ago so at down to read all 8.

That was superb. Really, really good. The art and the story were top notch.

Sorry it's taken so long to answer Gary, assuming you are still out there, but the artwork looks the same but as you pointed out the 2016 version runs in a different order.

I saw a comment (here or elsewhere) that it wasnt very 2000ad, but I think it upholds the feel of a Sci-Fi special very well, and the bits that "don't feel 2000AD" are not always the worse for that.

I said something along those lines.

And I can see what you are getting at but for me it's just too far removed.

Like buying oranges and receiving cat litter.

I would like to add I am not a Rorschach-style bearded living at mums house-dwelling incel lunatic

I don't have a beard and I live in my own house.

I will say that the centre spread is gorgeous though.

Loved that.

I've ordered both covers from the 2000 AD shop and the website exclusive cover arrived this morning.

Have to agree with James. Massively underwhelmed. Underwhelmed to the point that I wish I had not ordered both covers now.

Neither story nor art grabbed me, in fact I would go as far to say that the artwork is just not up to the standards of a comic bearing the name 2000 AD.

Nothing against the creators involved it just does not feel like a 2000 AD product.

Probably my fault as I was expecting something and got something else instead.

A Star Wars one has been selling for a couple of years in Spain and France.

We may yet see it.

Delighted to have it. Glad it's done.

Very good film. Slow burn in the first hour, but necessary and then loses it's shit (in a good way) in the second hour.

As a seasoned horror fan, for at least forty years, there were four sequences that sent genuine chills up my spine. Compare this to The Sixth Sense where this happened twice.

Has a good 'Rosemary's Baby' vibe to it.

Recommended if you like creepy horror.

Sorcerer (40th Anniversary 4K Remaster)

Will Friedkin is rarely mentioned in the same sentence of other legendary directors of the 70's and 80's, despite having The Exorcist, The French Connection and To Live and Die in LA under his belt. THIS, however, is the movie that tips him into the master race of directors. Tense, gripping, and visually visceral yet stunning. The rope bridge sequence alone made my heart stop at least twice, my palms where sweaty and and my stomach was in knots.

A superb film, do yourself a fave and buy the blu-ray, well worth the investment.

Already have. And despite this being a wonderful film I don't think it even comes close to the original 'Wages of Fear'. But still a very good film.

So the last volume has arrived (along with another copy of 2000 AD Ultimate Collection The Horned God which makes 4 copies I have now).

Nice to see it complete. I can now start reading  :D
