Suggestions / Let's bring Ian Gibson back in the from the cold.
« on: 19 September, 2018, 03:54:35 pm »
I thought Ian Gibson's interview in today's Megazine 400 was excellent.

Clearly if his health allows, the man is willing to work for 2000ad again so let's make it happen.

That is all.

Even as a fan of 2000ad, I do find it unrelenting how many talents do their best work almost straight after leaving the prog.

I do think there the episodic nature, short page count and house characters that are all great training.
But can you imagine if Preacher had appeared (first time around) in 2000ad rather than as a reprint in the Meg. Or The Invisibles. Or Enigma. Or Sandman. Or Walking Dead. Or Marshall Law.

But then we did get Nikolai Dante, Mazeworld, Button Man to name but a few.
2000ad really does have some close relatives that didn't stray too far...

Thanks for your kind words.

I've bought so many progs with pieces cut out of them.
Sometimes the whole centre spread missing.

That Ian Gibson queue was fun. Great guy.

They are just white and doubled-over to stop them being 'stuck' to the progs.
I'll take a photo

I finally called it a day at prog 699
Based on:
- Necropolis is a good end to so many Dredd story strands
- All the stories finish including Horned God and Strontium Final Solution
- I ran out of time, money and decent progs

My idea would be to get the original creators back to re-instate their original intentions with a fun narrative.
So ask Kev O'neil to draw the blood back in.

Or get Barry Kitson to recreate how the Age of the Wolf / Anderson title page should have looked.

Suggestions / 2000AD Uncensored hardback
« on: 12 July, 2018, 10:21:29 pm »
I know except for the coloured Halo Jones my suggestions are largely crap but this is the motherland.

A spiritual successor to Judge Dredd: Cursed Earth Uncensored, this would feature the outrageous and in some case libellous first offerings by writers/artists that the IPC censors requested changes to.

So it would include:

Judge Dredd: Bank Raid by Carlos Equerra with all the hotshot violence re-instated
Judge Dredd: Courtroom by Rufus Dayglo re-drawn for the Class of 79 unless you could get Carlos or Mick to have a go
Tharg's Head Revisited #1: Bloodsuckers by Mick Mahon (reprinted already in Judge Dredd The Mega-History
Tharg's Head Revisited #2: Tharg on a pitchfork by Brian Bolland with the original art and wording re-instated from 1988 Dredd Annual.
Judge Dredd: City of the Damned: Steve Dillons missing pages for prog 404 reprinted in 620.
What a difference an inch makes: How Eagle comics put an extra inch into Brian Bolland artwork to reprint the Judge Death Lives artwork at American sizes (it is funny how they did it)
Uncle Baal's chair and other filth - how the blood was tippexed out of Nemesis the Warlock
Judge Anderson Wolf in a sheep's clothes - a comparison of how the title page should have looked before speech bubbles were added.
Judge Dredd Fortnightly - a completely re-instated version of how the first issue would have looked with:
Anderson - Judge Death Revenge (unchanged)
B.A.D Company by Ezquerra
Blockers
Soul of a Judge/Blood Cadet - already started by Ian Gibson (?)
Helltrekkers
Alan Moore's Dredd script (Badlanders? reprinted in Millidge / Story teller)
Frank Millers 2000ad/ Dredd cover
And also the first stories by significant creators in Lawman of the Future (Simon Fraser, Alex Ronald and Dylan Teague including the alternate Death storyline which was pretty cool - Robbie Morrison)
Add in some fun salacious covers and I'd buy it.

General / Re: 2000AD fanwork legality?
« on: 11 June, 2018, 06:47:14 pm »
not that I'm officially reaching out or explicitly seeking permission from them, because that would probably open up a whole inconvenient can of worms on their part.

I listened to an IP lawyer who explained two things:
1) Ignorance is no defence of copyright law
2) Neither is not making money out of it

So here's my advice. I think making an online book/game would be objected to once discovered. Particularly if it could be found by the general public. So don't proceed without permission unless you're prepared to pull it down later if requested.

Even if you're not infringing copyrights themselves, you run the risk of passing off, which is trading off their goodwill. Honestly I would write your own story. Maybe submit it to Zarjaz etc or print copies off for a few friends but if you put it online you do risk being asked to take it down.

Suggestions / Could we have a Judge Anderson Special?
« on: 06 June, 2018, 05:17:20 pm »
It could be quite a nice opportunity to invite back as many of Anderson's artists to tell a new story or contribute a pin-up.

I can imagine it being quite commercial if it had a Bolland cover.

Dredd got his first special in 1988, so maybe it's time?

Prog / Re: Prog 2084 - Hail to the Chief!
« on: 06 June, 2018, 03:29:00 pm »
This prog is more of the same in a good way. The prog is well balanced with a strip for everyone.

I agree. I know its fashionable to bash the prog but I think as an anthology it has a really solid mix of art styles and writing. I like Survival Geeks and think its really well executed. It always helps when Dredd is on fire (and it is) but really good all round.
