Yes, it's still going.

A beautiful contribution from the awesome Rich Elson: Gene Dog resists being taken for walkies by Wrath & Bode.  There's no deadlines on any of these so they appear when they appear but when the four books are full it'll all be over (and we're closing on on that now).

I started a globetrotting 2000AD sketchbook thing back in 2011 and it's still going; I think about a dozen of the artists on your list are involved so far (https://forums.2000ad.com/index.php?topic=39617.0)...  A lot of artists are easy to track down via their own websites or blogs and a lot are on Facebook, so I'd recommend a polite, respectful message or email laying out what you're looking for.  Bear in mind that people are busy so even if they agree to do something for you it might take a while (I've waited two years on two occasions - that's with people in possession of the sketchbook). 

Some artists refuse to take any payment but I always say upfront that I'm more than happy to pay whatever they like (why wouldn't I?).  As long as you don't hassle people or expect too much (or speedy work) you'll probably get mainly positive responses from artists, at least based on my experience.  Feel free to drop me a PM if you get stuck somewhere - and post up anything you get; always a treat to see stuff like this!

Post-Christmas forum laziness means I've only just found this (the email helped!) - wahey!  This was a lot of fun to do so thanks again for the amazing effort :D

In theory, 416 is due tomorrow. I’ll be amazed if it arrives then, but I’m hoping for Sat or Mon.

Well I'd ordered a bunch of Bunny vs. Monkey and Corpse Talk books as Christmas presents so I guess we'll cope.  Also renewed the boys' annual subscription and also their Aquila sub while I was at it (nothing but lint in my pockets now).

It was 415. Corpse Talk was Great Expectations.

Ah, we got that one earlier this week - probably won't get a second issue before we head off.  As long as the Chrimbo Prog arrives today or tomorrow I don't mind, though!

Aha – Phoenix just landed...

Was that the Christmas issue?  We're still waiting for ours (and the Christmas Prog) and I'm seriously hoping for some imminent postie action before we head off for a week of turkey-related shenanigans.

Almost done with the crossword; 10 across took me far longer than it should have - great stuff!

Great day for the calendar. I can't seem to see the crossword though and I'm keen to do it.

There's a link in the post above the one with Dredd-inna-Santa-hat image, which I love.

Anyone know of MOCHUB (https://www.mochub.com/index.php/)?

I've just been approached by them about picking out some designs to put out in the wider world (basically I provide the design and instructions and then people can buy the parts online and build the things).  Might be worth a go, but then these are all Rebellion IP so I wouldn't want to tread on any toes...  I'm not that likely to follow up on this but maybe it's worth pondering?

While I'm here I'll add in the latest forum advent effort, just to keep everything in one place (well, two):

...if Scotland does join the EU, there would have to be a hard border with England. Fun times.

Hadrian's wall 2.0?

I believe there is a new series in the works with Tiernan Trevallion on art duties. Looking forward to seeing it.

Ooh, that sounds good.

Helium was great and I'd forgotten there'd been such a long intermission since the first series ended; I wonder if/when it'll be back?

Is a move to proportional representation likely at this point?  Or will that be quietly buried since it's unlikely to work in favour of the current government?

I'm heading back to the UK for Christmas but I've rarely felt so low at the prospect of a visit...  I'm just left shell-shocked.  We all live in our little bubbles / echo chambers so news and views are strongly filtered but I really hoped that this one would have gone differently.  I guess there are a lot of angry, frustrated people out there who thought that this result will leave them better off but having seen the trajectory of things like food banks, child poverty and homelessness under the Tories I think the vast majority are just going to be shafted even harder than previously.

Next election, if it's just a two party race, I think the ballot paper should just make it simple and offer a choice between 'an attempt to lessen inequality and make the place better for all' and 'fuck the poor' and let people put their mark where their conscience lies.

Having lived in various parts of the world for too long I'm not even eligible to vote in UK general elections any more - not that its would have made any difference, given the scale of the outcome.  The UK's not been home to me for a long time but it's never felt so distant as it does today.

Someone did a Landraider!

Yeah, we saw that back in 2015 (page 20); impressive stuff.  Would go well with the Laz-saw thing at Mutie Rushmore!
