A wally is also a gherkin according to my South London bred parents (they're from Shooters Hill in Eltham, which subsequently turns out to be where Bill Savage originally comes from...)
Where else would the most famous Londoner who always wields a shooter come from?

Another Christmas prog Dredd by Wagner and McNeil (grud help my memory for story names) with every single aspect of Dredd present and correct - politics, ruthless perp-crushing, a visit to the niece and the hint of compassion that keeps Dredd interesting.
Was that the one with Dredd and the other clones pretending to be at a family get together at christmas, but just being uncomfortable and wanting to get back out on the streets?

I think I enjoy early stront more than the recent ones, nemesis is one of my least favourites. Its distinctive and memorable certainly, but some bits feel a bit of a slog.
As a matter of interest, which bits of Nemesis did you find a slog?

Given that you can still get all of Zenith in hardback, I'm not sure it really needs to be in the UC. But, yeah, the lack of John Smith is a major omission. As I've said before, at the very least a Leatherjack/Firekind combo would have been a great inclusion.

Maybe it's being saved for the continuation?

My third and last prediction before I start work today!

This one could be a bit divisive, but the last panel published to date of Stickleback where we find out that Stickleback is Sherlock Holmes.  It was quite some while ago so I put the reveal behind a spoiler in case people come across it for the first time in the 2000AD Ultimate Collection.

My second prediction is when Dredd boots down a door in the last panel of his story and the first panel of the next story features the same door being booted in.

What do you think have been the top 10 greatest moments of 2000AD's last quarter century?
Am pretty up on the comic until the mid-90s but regrettably lost interest for a while after that.
What have I missed?

I think most people, even those whose favourite moments are in their youths (nostalgia can be tough to beat) will agree that this is special...

How much to get you to change your avatar to a pic of Nigel Farage?
Unfortunately the only pics I have with me and famous people are the one with PTerry and one with Neil Gaiman and me.

* going back as far as "The Financial Panic of AD 33", Roman banks created a financial crisis by issuing too many unsecured loans (LOL) until Tiberius salvaged the economy with quantitative easing (ROFLcopter).  Capitalism sure doesn't like to change much.

I'll take your AD 33 and raise (or lower) you the Late Bronze Age collapse.

Well even though I'm only half way through I feel I have to comment on Episode 132.

First and foremost I'm of course deeply flattered that you dedicated the show to me my playing the song written in tribute to my forum name at the start (and I assume) and end of the show. Very touching.

Thanks! For the record YNWA was the number one for that month, for one reason or another, but who am I to go against someone's weird podcast obsession?

I think it was a re-release of the song (by a Liverpool band) following a ferry disaster on the Mersey...

holy crap i just realised whats coming up in strontium dog :o

It's gonna get heavy!

Don't quite have time to check out Barney, but I'm guessing a time job followed by a reduced cast?

It's fine, what's your problem snowflake?  All opposition is funded by the Jews (but not Israel, just the greedy communist ones) or faceless Eurocrat experts who can't accept that they lost the war so you can discount all their 'evidence', and all your problems are caused by swarms of immigrants, taking our jobs and our handouts and our homes and our Christmas and raping our daughters (unless women tell you this, in which case they are lying). The most racist thing you can do is call a white man racist, you racist.

We need to be polite and meet these good people halfway, nothing to be gained by this obstructive nastiness which is just offensive, you lying dogfaced cuck. Let the men who God chose to lead us get on with the job, all this time you waste worrying could be better spent honing your gun skills so you can stop the Bad Hombres when they come to kill those who,  let's face it,  probably deserve it for being godless libtard queers. My glorious nation first, unless its undemocratic laws constrain me!

Didn't realise you were running for office!

(my coffee shop days are over for the time being, strictly a flask man unless I'm treating my daughter to a babyccino),
What, pray tell, is a babyccino?

was this the special that caused fleetway some trouble at the time since they didn't own the characters or am i thinking of something else

Yep - that's the one.  It was shortly after IPC became Fleetway (to outside eyes, anyway) and somewhere along the line somebody (editorial?  management?) thought that 2000AD was free to use any IPC IP they wanted.
