Website and Forum / Wraparound covers on digital issues
« on: 04 December, 2019, 01:11:07 pm »
A while back we were getting wraparound cover images as part of the digital file on the iPad app.
At some point this seems to have been forgotten or overlooked so that Progs like 2060 don't include a wraparound image of Stewart Moore's fabulous cover.

Any chance this helpful practice can be reinstated?

One week on and still got that Thought Bubble buzz. For anyone who doesn't know this is the UK comics convention to get to if you can.

And part of my buzz is from the amazing generosity of people who donated items to the cause for cancer research UK. Special thanks to Rob Stewart, Si Spurrier, Ian Edginton, D'Israeli, Bolt-01, Damian, and Large48 who all gave items.

So here we go, there is quite a lot to get through. All are 99p starts with the usual free P&P so every penny you pay goes straight to fund cancer research.

Phew! What a lot we've got. And there's more to come. I'll be listing another 15 or so items soon including, would you believe it, an A3 Joe Pineapples sketch by none other than Simon Bisley himself. Watch this space.

I'm staggering the end dates of some of these auctions to give me time to get to the post office and keep up my day job. As ever if you win an early auction and have your eyes on a later one then message me and I'll post together if possible.

And I still have some items kept back for the Christmas raffle so with these auctions, and the Buttonman ones, and the raffle we might push the running total close to the £10k mark!

Time for the traditional lie down with a damp prog on my forehead and a reviving sniff of the jockstrap that Pete Wells donated but I'm keeping for myself for personal reasons.

Cheers all.

Not just content with the enormous achievement that is the Letters to Tharg Beast the forum’s very own Buttonman, Stephen Watson, has donated some trade paperbacks to help raise money for cancer research UK.

First up the rare and sought after Stainless Steel Rat trade paperback, and a letter from the Mighty One himself.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/233384248012

And then the Invasion 1984! trade that Stephen and I discussed on a recent episode of the podcast.

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/233384251132

Both are 99p starts, 100% for Cancer research UK and Stephen is generously throwing in free postage as well. You know what to do.

And stay tuned for some more books from the master of the Beast. Thank you, Stephen.

General / Fans from the Eastern Front meet up in Cambridge 05/10/19
« on: 31 August, 2019, 02:30:35 pm »


Superfan Garry Hill is organising the first meet up of the 2000AD Eastern contingent as follows:

"Hi folks taking the initiative from John Burdis and the 2000AD Southern Contingent I've set up a fan group for us in the Eastern region. Very originally, it's called the 2000AD Eastern Contingent. 😉

Making the beautiful city of Cambridge our base, the first meet up is planned for Saturday 5th October at 2pm meeting at The Grain and Hop Store pub in Regent Street.

So, leave the keyboards, tablets and phones behind and meet up with some of your fellow 2000AD fans in person to drink, eat and talk about the galaxy's greatest and anything else you want. We may even have a mystery 2000AD guest in attendance too!"


Garry will be there, I'll be there, there may even be an inky fingered droid there. If you're anywhere near Cambridge come a long for a few scoops*, a few laughs, and some 2000AD chat. First pint is on me!


*My Irish heritage coming out. Alcoholic beverages.

Prog / Prog 2141 - Pincer movement
« on: 20 July, 2019, 07:57:46 pm »


Great Chris Weston cover.

Dredd. Williams, Weston, Blythe & Parkhouse bring back the inaccessible Pin, and to great effect. This one is going to be a goodie.

Indigo Prime. Dunno, looks lovely though.

Anderson. Pass

Absalom. Deeper in to the dark heart of the satanic mill with the Guvnor stealing the show.

Thistlebone. The folk horror revival continues, although I feel this one might read better for me in the trade.

Pick of the prog is Dredd. Will this story see the Pin drop?

Anyone fancy the eighties covers book from the ultimate collection?

Prog / Prog 2133 - School of Hard Knocks
« on: 27 May, 2019, 10:18:10 am »

Cover by Neil Roberts

Dredd: New Blood 2 wraps up the story with something Spode should have seen coming. More interesting artisitc choices and a fun call back to classic Dredd.

Tharg's 3riller: the Chimera 3

Kingmaker: Ouroboros 10. They shall not pass! Which is pretty much what Dredd said on the Hotdog Run.

Max Normal 9.

Scarlet Traces: Home Front 7. D'Israeli's colouring is outstanding and nice to have Brum TV's Kay Alexander take a leading role.

And as already described in the Beast thread there is a letters page about the Regened issue.

Fill your boots and make a bid. Cheers, and thanks to the kind donor.
