General / spreading the word
« on: 31 March, 2017, 09:13:57 AM »
I am currently teaching at a college in the middle east and a colleague started teahing an elective course called 'comics and culture'. I donated a big pile of megazines and floppies (reluctantly) to help with the course material and it turned out that the arab kids love them as they have never seen anything like it before.

Seemingly the sinister/dexter floppies are among the most popular.

Some of the other tutors have started reading them as well. Hopefully have made a few converts anyway. :)

General / Question for the hive mind

Was talking to my son the other night about entropy and it reminded me of a future shock from years ago (drawn by John Higgins I think) set at the end of the universe where everything is just about coming to a standstill because of thermodynamic equilibrium.

Can anyone else remember this and what is was called?

Just found out that he is story board artist on Game Of Thrones.Well in big man!

I loved his artwork on Dredd and Rogue Trooper War Machine (especially) in the late 80s. I remember those strips as ones that seemed to symbolise a transition period for 2000ad when it seemed to me that the comic was going with darker or more 'mature' story lines to reflect the mood of the older reader.

General / A question about the guledig in slaine...

General / Occasional problems with subscriptions
« on: 30 July, 2013, 08:23:04 PM »
Just come back from six months away and looking forward to working through the pile of comics and find a few missing (JD meg april and may and 2000 ad where stickleback makes his return).

Not a major disaster but still annoying as I was really looking forward to Insurrection coming back and so on.

I know it is the post office at fault and not the subs department but it is still annoying.

Does this happen to anyone else?

General / no progs now for 5 months

I have been abroad sine christmas and have not seen a prog since then. I am hoping to have a huge pile to work through when I come home in July. Have I missed much?

General / Article about Cam Kennedy

From the Scottish Daily Record - one of my favourite ever Dredd artists.

General / Perils of buying bargain 2000ad stuff on amazon when half cut
« on: 19 January, 2012, 05:53:28 PM »
I have developed a habit recently of going on amazon and buying up 2nd hand reprints etc because in my usually half pissed state things that are for example 99p + 2.80 postage look like fantastic bargains. anyway looked at my credit card bill today and I have clocked up something 260 quid over the last 6 weeks or so.  :D

Ah well it is all good and they are genuine bargains - just means I will have a massive haul of books to woork my way through when I return to the UK in a few weeks.

Not to mention 6 months worth of progs and megs.

I doubt if I will end up spending any time with the family when I am home. :P

Film Discussion / Alex Zane in the Sun

is tipping Dredd to be one of the movies of 2012. Any kind of publicity is good I suppose.

General / Just watched 'Punisher - Warzone'
« on: 24 November, 2011, 09:30:44 PM »
and although it is a shite movie I could not help thinking that Ray Stevenson would make an ideal Bill Savage. Anybody else see the similarity or is it just me being a bit pissed?

General / Not read a prog in 5 months
« on: 21 July, 2011, 11:31:46 AM »
Been working abroad and not been home so my progs are piling up unread. However I  will be returning on sunday and am looking forward to working my way through them.

So have I missed much since February?
