Suggestions / Merchandise suggestion: Mean Machine's dial
« on: 02 July, 2014, 12:52:46 pm »
The Judge badges are really cool but what I'd love to see is an official Mean Machine dial for sale. It could come with a strap (prefareably see-though) so we can wear it with pride and start turning up that dial when people around us are pissing us off.

"You want me to work this weekend? Ahm a going up ta fore on ya!"

News / John Wagner Interview
« on: 19 July, 2012, 08:19:05 pm »
At Glasgow Comic Con I got the chance to film an interview with the mighty legend himself John Wagner. He gave his thoughts on the Dredd film and some very revealing insights on what went into the creation process of Day of Chaos. The Button Man film and a few other things get discussed too.

The interview can be found here:

Help! / Comic Pricing
« on: 17 April, 2012, 03:51:16 pm »
Does anyone know of a decent place online for pricing old and signed comics?

In particular I have a first printing of Batman: The Scottish Connection signed by Alan Grant and Frank Quietly on the week of release. Only reason I'm selling it is to fund production of my comic. Anyone got a rough idea of a fair price for it? I've looked online but can't find anything similar to compare with.

Welcome to the board / Better Late Than Never
« on: 28 March, 2012, 02:48:55 pm »
Excuse my rudeness - joined a few weeks ago but didn't start one of these threads because... umm... my fingers temporarily revolted?

Anyway, I'm Gordy and I'm your typical rough and rugged Scotsman who spends more time drinking than working and will deep-fry anything that can't outrun me.

Been a huge comics fan all my life, starting with The Beano, Dandy etc, then onto Our Wullie and The Broons, then 2000AD and the Meg. Preacher was my gateway into the American side of the business. I stupidly cancelled my subscription to 2000AD when unemployment struck but now I'm back in the warm bosom of Thargy and co.

As well as a fan I'm trying to become a comics writer. I've self-published my debut No More Heroes and did a couple of shorts for upcoming anthologies. No-one's told me to piss off and leave the industry alone so I'm taking that as a win.

General / Hey hey hey hey! Hey Stookie!
« on: 21 March, 2012, 02:30:20 pm »
I've been reading the post-Origins Dredd stories about him cleaning up the mutie camps and it made me think of the old stories featuring Stookies.

Then I remembered something about a storyline involving Dredd being injected with Stookie glands (probably without his knowledge of it) as a way of explaining how he's not as worn down and 'showing his age' as much as he should be.

Did this story actually happen? Or is it something I sort of half remember from a letters page, forum post or whatever?

Books & Comics / No More Heroes - my debut comic (first half's FREE!)
« on: 16 March, 2012, 06:59:58 pm »
No More Heroes is my recently-launched debut comic. Here's the teaser ad for it:



It's a four issue mini-series with a twisty turny plot and lots of dark humour. Even if you think the plot's a bit guff (it's not! Honest!) I can safely bet you'll like Caio's artwork (I might have to chain him down to make sure he finishes the issues before a publisher nabs him).

You can read the first ten pages for free on our website: http://nomoreheroescomic.wordpress.com/.

Hello. I'm Gordy and I have a confession to make. I am a lapsed 2000AD reader (please don't hit me!). I stupidly let my subscription go during dark, dark days of unemployment and evilness.

But I'm back! A friend told me I had to read Dredd: Origins. I did, loved it, and am now dedicated to returning to the warm glow of 2000AD.

So could anyone please help me out by telling me the key Dredd stories I should track down from recent years to get back up to speed with what's happeneing to Old Stoneyface? Also, recommendations for other stories, TPBs etc I should pick up would be greatly appreciated.
