Help! / Dave Gibbons' pre-2000 AD work
« on: 16 February, 2010, 11:41:19 PM »
Wow, look at me - two posts in a year! Blimey!

Am hoping someone can give me a little image help.

I'm on the hunt for images of Dave Gibbons' pre-2000 AD work...

I've drawn a blank so far - particularly on images from Powerman (Gibbons ones, not the ones Brian Bolland has posted on his website) and Hotspur - so wondered if anyone had original copies or original artwork they wouldn't mind scanning?



Help! / Wagner on Dredd Q
« on: 14 February, 2010, 11:55:37 AM »
Hope someone can help with an urgent question:

Anyone remember when Wagner stopped writing Dredd in the '90s and when he started again?! :S



Books & Comics / Finally ... THE END IS NIGH #4
« on: 29 October, 2009, 06:20:07 PM »
The next issue of the THE END IS NIGH will launch at Impressions Gallery in Bradford on Sunday 1st November at a fantastic free event!

Our first issue since 2006 sees writers Alan Moore and Iain Sinclair pay tribute to the post-apocalyptic genius of JG Ballard, we mark the forthcoming milestone of 1,000 days till the end of the world, we examine The Rise of the Machines, we ponder as to which animal will unleash the next killer flu plague, we ask is Obama the Antichrist ... and it all comes with a free game of END TRUMPS, where the fate of mankind truly is in your hands!

The whole thing is topped off with an amazingly apocalyptic cover by Defoe artist Leigh Gallagher! We also have contributions from writer John Reppion, along with 2000 AD boarders Ed Berridge and The Emperor!

Keep an eye on www.endisnigh.co.uk after this weekend for the chance to get your hands on a copy - stocks are limited!

Here is the blurb about this weekend's event:

From the Large Hadron Collider to the end of Mayan calendar in 2012, our fascination with potential apocalypse is ever present. Inspired by our exhibition The Last Things, Journalist Michael Molcher and editor of zine The End is Nigh, will take an informed yet satirical look at the speculation surrounding the end of the world in his free illustrated talk at 2pm. Join us and help predict the date the world will end!

Throughout the afternoon the award winning independent Comic Book Shop OK Comics, will be transporting their Drink and Draw event over to Impressions. Like-minded comic fans, budding artists and designers will be able to meet, exchange ideas, sup free hot tea and scribble away. Paper will be rolled over all the tables in the Studio and pens left everywhere, so come along and draw whatever you feel like. Everyone is welcome no matter what your artistic ability and pro comic book artist Leigh Gallagher will be on hand to trouble shoot your illustration irritations at his drop in surgery.

OK Comics will also be bringing a selection of apocalypse themed comic books, which you can browse over a wedge of cake, or yours to buy and take away.

Amble into the gallery and you’ll have a last chance to see our exhibition The Last Things by David Moore before it closes on 8 November 2009. Described by writer Iain Sinclair as a "photographer of secret spaces", Moore provides an exclusive glimpse of the Ministry of Defence’s secret crisis management centre beneath the streets of central London. This hidden space, only to be used in a major national emergency, hides a strictly controlled working environment continuously on stand-by in which a looming sense of threat is ever present.

So do come along, meet the team, be the first to buy the new issue and hang out in a great venue!

Lo! Am hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction for a couple of things I need to dig out but can't find ...

So, do you know:

Which prog the Michael Jackson-u-like was thawed out, only for them to discover he was ... well, a bit damaged by the cryogenic process.


Which prog there was a Ron Smith-drawn Dredd tale in which there's a man made of clock parts, with cogs and springs and the like? Possibly set in the Cursed Earth?

I hereby fall upon your mercy and pity. Reward? My gratitude and loads of cash*

General / Hivemind request: Comics Comics No.4
« on: 16 June, 2009, 07:38:42 PM »

Doing some re-re-research (I know, surprises me too) and wondered if anyone possibly had a copy of Comics Comics number 4 (launched at last year's San Diego) that I could steal/buy/get scans of?

General / Write to Ron Smith
« on: 14 May, 2009, 08:26:41 PM »
Evenin' all

Been a while since I've posted here but, y'know, been busy and whatnot ...

I recently had the very great pleasure of interviewing the inimitable Ron Smith, all-star Dredd artist and veteren of the British comics scene for more than fifty years, for a forthcoming feature in the Megazine. Pleased to say he was a most gracious host and a lovely chap, full of stories about his years in the business and still had a real sparkle in his eye.

He very nicely allowed me to take away some of his unseen or rarely seen artwork to scan in to illustrate the piece, and I'm shortly going to be returning it. However, during a chat with Mr Ewing the other evening we both commented on how much we liked Ron's stuff (Hotdog Run was the first Dredd I ever read) and how much love within the fan base still remained for him and his work.

So here's the deal - in two weeks from now, I'll be sending a package back to Smith Towers containing the leant artwork. But I'd like to show Ron just how much he's still remembered and loved by the readers. Please feel free to use this thread to write your own personal message to Ron - once the fortnight is up I'll print them off and include them with the returned artwork.

Please, no abusive, sarcastic or negative posts - this is meant to be for Ron, a guy whose legacy at 2000 AD is second to none.

Let's show the love, people.

You can download a copy of issue two for free, or buy one of the remaining copies of issue three. Plenty of people from on here contributed to both, so get downloading and then spread the word!

Books & Comics / Spurrier's Silver Surfer (un)Surprisingly Super!
« on: 12 November, 2007, 02:47:34 PM »
Since he's not been shy with the praise for a pet project of mine in the past, I can only return the favour. Though this is no hardship, as I was delighted by the first issue of Spurrier's run on Silver Surfer. Scores high on the WeirdShit'o'meter while still being well written, instantly well-thought-out characters and he nicely sets the scene for something special to happen.

Go buy.

Wait, this is too much praise for one man ... the cosmic balance must be restored ... er ... Spurrier smells ... of wrong .............. green wrong.

Help! / Techie help needed
« on: 18 October, 2007, 08:33:07 PM »

Been sent some images to illustrate a feature but they appear to have become mpgs (they appear as 'movies' but are just a single frame) somewhere in the process and I can't find any way to convert them to jpgs.

Can anyone help? Any assistance gratefully received.


Help! / Icon help greatly appreciated!

Could any possibly help me out and make a much smaller version of the animated gif below that would work on this board? Or is it too big an image?

Cheers in advance for any help/abuse ...

An internet user has been found guilty of what police said was Britain's first "web rage" attack.

After he was arrested, Gibbons was found to have boasted about the attack in a chatroom.

"It went perfectly to plan," he wrote.

Um, but not really, did it ... what with being arrested and all.
