General / Rebellion hires Editor-at-Large to help with US market
« on: 18 October, 2020, 09:23:23 PM »
Have I missed this. Don't remember seeing it? Apologise if its old news.

Anyway Rebellion have hired Jim Killen, previously of Barnes and Noble as 'Editor-at-large' which I assume means outside the UK to support expanding international markets - but that's a guess. Anyway some more details here and lets hope its as smart a move as it seems it might be?

Prog / Prog 2204 - Not of this Earth
« on: 17 October, 2020, 01:42:20 PM »
First time for a Saturday Prog for a while and its a double treat, what a Prog it is.

Last time I said things are bubbling along well, the trick beign whether these thrills can deliever and on the evidence of this weeks Prog the answer will be yes. In spades.

First though we get a new Dredd with a more immediate epilogue to 'End of Days' by Rob Williams as Dredd, Anderson and Ichabod's Mr Ed track the 'moth-hounds' in the Cursed Earth. Dan Cornwell excels on the art side once again and its brisk, exciting and has an fantastic eight legged boothanger. Great.

Stickleback - wow its fantastic Stickleback doesn't mess around and but his efforts are to no avail, but other dangers are harboured in his target.

Skipperty is no long Skipperty as Skip Tracer continues to be the best this series has been since that seciond story that folks seems to forget about (or didn't like as much as me). The strip works best when Blake as a companion that allows him to become more than the gruff 90s hard and gritty 2000ad protangist and this one is tripping along nicely and Paul Marshal's art continues to shine.

Fiends - wow its fantastic. Futures are foretold with Dragon (Hydra) forboding before we charge into that future. Its a gripping yarn.

Hookjaw - wow its fantastic 'We're going to need a bigger bus' - GOLD. The mysteries start to be peeled away in effective and exciting style and we find out why giant sharks can fit into hot tubs - we're not safe on land indeed. I've seen folks elsewhere bemoan the 'lack of reverance shown towards a classic strip.' Well if this is the product of 2000ad's lack of reverance I fully get why I've loved 2000ad's lack of reverance for so long. Gripping and gruesome stuff.

Wonderful Prog AND on a Saturday - that's double good that is.

General / Favourite Art Droids Tourneys - Classic and Current
« on: 14 October, 2020, 06:39:53 AM »
So as already discussed on Monday 19th October I plan to start qualifying for the next of these seemingly interminable bloody tournaments to strangle the life out of the General Topic bit of the forum (or Mods what to repurpose the Trailer section maybe? Not sure how easy that is?).

So this time as discussed running two Favourite Art Droid tournaments back to back. I’ll use this thread to:

1) Explain why two
2) List ‘rules’ for what they are worth
3) Talk structure and timing of both
4) Bore you all endlessly with whatever else comes to mind

There are lists of entrants for both competitions available (and subject to last minute change if needed):

Classic

Current

Brace yourselves this is going to get subjective…

General / UMDT - BONUS Round Johnny Alpha vs Joe Dredd
« on: 12 October, 2020, 07:23:26 AM »
Ultimate MAYBE Dredd Tourney Bonus Round.

Go on then lets do it. Johnny Alpha has earnt this and maybe, just maybe can provide the shock of the century after all he is an incredible popular character. So while we prepare the FADT (Favourite Art Droid Tourney) let's have a bit of fun and see whose our favourite between:

Johnny Alpha (Strontium Dog) - more info

OR

Judge Joe Dredd (Judge Dredd) - more info

Leave the name of the character you like most in a reply to this thread and I’ll count up and call the winner early in the morning Thursday 15th OCTOBER.

‘Rules’ and what not, for what they are worth

It'll probably end up all



But it'll be a bit of fun huh.

General / Favourite CURRENT Art Droids Tourney - Entrants
« on: 11 October, 2020, 07:42:05 AM »
I've started a thread to 'launch' the first of two tournaments that I plan to run next and they will be running in parallel. (Copied text cos as I've said I'm lazy) They'll be a Favourite Classic Art Droid to celebrate Droids past and a Favourite Current Art Droids Tourney. Both of these will play to an end. Then we'll go back and run a short play off to find the overall Favourite Art Droid.

Let's talk Current ART Droids. These are Droids who are still active in the Prog. So those who've done a series, significent number of Dredds, or Cliff Robinson (see notes elsewhere!). I've used Prog 2000 as a cut off point, or the equivalent Meg 376(ish). These are Droids that we'd not be too surprised, though we'd be delighted, to see gracing the Prog at any point still. There may be other reasons why, alas, we know a Droid's work for Tharg has finished, these to will be in the Classic section, even if they have had a series since Prog 2000.

Both tournments will consist of 32 Droids. For the Current Droids I have 44 nominated (see note below) and so we need to whittle that down. As I want the tournaments to be primarily about quality not quantity (past a certain benchmark) I'm only putting 8 Droid through to the tourney proper automatically (based on the fantastic work of AlexF from Heroes of 2000ad Blog Spot http://heroesof2000ad.blogspot.com/) and so we'll have 36 Droids in qualifying to get the final 24 slots.

I'll post 2 lists today. The 8 automatic qaulifiers and the 36 droids in qualifying. Then this week I'll start to drop in some Posts with 'rules' and tournement structure and what not and hope to have this all set up for qualifying to start Monday 19th (is it???). But we'll see.
