Spoilers should be assumed in prog review threads…

Captain Marvel trailer.

Looks pretty good to me. Also, yay for punching old ladies in the face!

I went for a curry with John Wagner. I can’t believe I get to type that sentence. I’ve been making a full-time living from comics for almost a decade, but in here I’m still a fan. Just amazing, and what a lovely man he is.

Also, I now know more than I previously did about the potential perils of keeping alpacas.

If I get there in time for a drink pre-film, I'll probably go to the lovely Victoria - cross the road from the sadly shuttered up Crown and go up that side road...

Brilliant. I’ll head there and look for middle-aged geeks. :-)

I believe Dunk is going.

Oh, God — what's he going to do to himself this time?!

Well, that's what you get fer votin Brexit Jim.

Glossing over that hideous slander, is anyone else going, and does anyone have any thoughts on a tolerable boozer near-ish to the Electric where a shower of middle-aged comic nerds might gather without getting their heads kicked in?

I seem to recall him receiving a co-writing credit on some Tyranny Rex - Soft Bodies, possibly - although neither Barney nor Wikipedia confirm this. Any of the hive mind know?

Yes. I remember a couple of co-writing credits with Smiffy (he also introduced John to German goth band 'Love Like Blood'* which John then used on the series of the same name) and he created Harmony for the Meg, I think.


*Yes, yes, I thought it was a Killing Joke reference, too…

Jim- that pub's shut, mate.

NO!

(But thanks for the heads-up…)

I don't think it's officially part of the Con, but it's on the same day, so who's going to the Dredd screening (plus Wagner Q&A) at the Electric from 6:00?

I went to a previous screening at the Electric and there's a perfectly serviceable pub (The Crown) on the corner… :-)

So who is coming?

Bugger. I only have a Saturday ticket, so I'm not going to get into that!

Did I read that article correctly, that they're still shopping the series to Netflix et al? I thought it *was* a Netflix series?

No, it's never been attached to a channel/broadcaster at this point. Some articles have mentioned Netflix, but it's never been suggested in any official comment.

but it would be pretty duff not to give Dredd a 'meaningful' role - he is the drokkin' star of the show.

There's a reason why the series' main title is "Mega City One"…

Yeah. We’re at the absolute bottom here. I think I singled out 883 as the worst prog ever, but it’s probably got the same line-up… anyone who says any prog in the last twenty years was “as bad as the 90s” clearly never read anything in the 880s.

I can't believe we've got onto the second page without someone doing some variation on a 'not the droids Tharg was looking for' joke.

You've let me down, you've let the forum down, but most of all, you've let yourselves down.
