t’s not hard to meet expenses . . . they’re everywhere.

Gah!  How slow am I?  Took me three reads to get it.

<facepalm> :crazy:

Maybe I’m just thick, but I don’t get it.

Meeting expenses usually means managing to pay expenses.

Meeting people means to make the acquaintance of people (through friends, in pubs, clubs, down the supermarket, etc).

In this instance, meeting expenses is making the acquaintance of more expenses, rather than managing to pay off the ones already accrued...

Friday is as much a part of Rogue Trooper as the original, for me.

I'm guessing you started reading 2000AD when Fr1day was running?

A quick look on Barney suggests the only Fr1day that was reprinted was The War Machine.

Tell a lie - Wagner/Higgins' Casualties Of War and Millar/White's G.I. Blues have also been reprinted.

It is more wishful thinking than anything else. I cant see anyone else picking this up and continuing the story-line. This is the same case with Zenith. Both will be remembered with great fondness and  I would rather never have a new story-line than a twisted version going forward.

I enjoyed it, but for an idea on how it would happen, and differ from the three books we know (this example with Moore's full blessing), look at the Neil Gaiman MarvelmanMiracleman books.  Quality writing, but of a completely different style to what went before.

I assume it's cheaper to have a painted actor but maybe a CGI Rogue would be better. The Apes in the those Planet of the Apes films certainly look believable to the audience.

It's easier to make a non-human creature believable to an audience, as they're not so familiar with them, whereas we have close contact, look at and talk to human being's faces every day.

Its very exciting for those that love Rogue and there do seem to be many. It seems like a simple enough concept (once you've sussed how to make the Bio-chips work I guess)

Worked for KITT on low-budget TV in the early 1980s - can't see biochips would be a problem now.

I read the script; saw the concept art. I liked it. That's all I can add.


Thanks for posting that - never seen the production art before.

Anyone who doesn’t accept that Alien 3 should have a wooden planet deserves Prometheus.

heh I always wondered how that would've worked

I've always imagined it would have been not dissimilar to the library world in (far future) Durham Red.

Wow, that game really was craptastic!

Interesting in the latest ep you said the final splash page in Slaine was in colour - don't know if this was just a slip of the tongue, but it was definitely B&W in he original prog. Looking forward to revisiting Ant Wars after Fox's appearance on the Mega-City Book club.

There were two episodes of Glenn Fabry Slaine around the time of Slaine the King where the last page was in colour - one was Glenn's wordless (almost) sequence, the other was after Slaine had become king.  The last page was on the back cover of the prog, so got colourified (the only instance I can remember where a comic page appears on the back cover and isn't coloured is a Cam Kennedy / Rogue Trooper story back in 1983).

How would you get the tippex off (if whoever owns the page now lets you)?

Bryan Talbot had high quality stats made of his originals before sending them in, and had those used for at least some of the reprints of his Nemesis work, reinstating some of the missing gore. (He had side-by-side comparisons at a Luther Arkwright signing I remember going to about a million years ago.)

Would love to see those - wonder if they include the clear version of the sign on the back of the dead Terminators cart from Garden of Unearthly Delights?

I had forgotten about this when we recorded, but it's definitely clear by the end of the year, when advertising for the two Strontium Dog games is in every prog! I really want to check these games out, at least watch a let's play or something, to experience these classic games! Though even if it's been done I still maintain that The Killing would make a great format for a modern Fortnite/PUBG style battle royale game :D

Here you go.  Haven't actually watched the full half-hour clip as I'm just finishing my lunch break so just watched a couple of five second snatches, but prepare to be disappointed!

I also really don't like this idea of making sequels that ignore the other sequels, I didn't want to see Alien 3 written out of continuity and by the same token don't want to see Robocop 2 discarded. That's admittedly me being uptight, but in my mind I'd never see these sequels as canon, and would struggle to see them as anything other than fan fiction or (shudder) one of those Marvel alternate universe things that they do in the comics all the time that just muddy everything up.

Same here - see Superman Returns (I think it was called - the one with Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor, who we probably won't be seeing much from any more) and the reimagined Star Trek films (I like them as much as the older ones, but why take something with however-many decades of continuity and then immediately ignore it all?)
