General / Sunday, bloody Sunday...

Sunday morning (well, it still is, just...).  The board says that I'm browsing and there are "0 guests".  

I'm all on my tod...

So I presume that all you thrillsters out there are still recovering from your weekly dose of thrillpower (or from your subs copy of Tooth delivered on a Saturday :-)...  

... so what Sunday morning thrillpower withdrawal/hangover recovery cures do people recommend?

For me, I finished re-reading "Thrill-power Overload (30 Years of 2000AD)" again this morning (it's taken weeks) and now have yet another list of series I've forgotten and need to go back and read...


Welcome to the board / 31 (and a bit) years later...

Hi All,

My subject title refers to two things.  Firstly, it's taken 31 (and a bit) years for me to write to (or, as this is a forum, on) anything related to 2K. Not even a letter to Tharg in all that time (sorry! and there is of course so much to say and shout "thanks!" for! I must relent one day...).

Secondly, after 31 (and a bit) years, I've come full circle. My first ever copy of 2000AD was technically Prog 2 -- as I actually got it a few days before liberating a copy of Prog 1 from somewhere -- but, just like many kids of the time, I have of course suffered the curse of kids everywhere with many an early prog becoming lost or recycled by a well-meaning but misguided mum at the time. Well, patience has been a virtue over the years and just a couple of weeks ago Prog 2 finally came back to me (via the wonder of eBay of course). It was an emotional moment...

I've been along for the ride ever since those first progs.  I remember each of those first progs with clarity. The Flesh card game, the Robot War, Dan Dare arriving in London (!), despite being only eight years old when those first progs appeared. I remember climbing a very large hill when on holiday in Looe in Cornwall to find a newsagents with a copy of Prog 29 for sale. I think it was Prog 93 that didn't turn up for six weeks or so (because of a strike?) and for all that time I felt like it was the end of the world. I was on a school residential trip for Prog 164. My mum (bless her) posted me every issue, including the tenth anniversary Prog 520 (with, shock, a glossy cover!), when I was at University. There have been so many memories of life since then, and everyone marked by a Prog number. Both have had their ups and downs, but both are still going strong. Well, at least 2000AD appears to be... :-)

So hello! I'm here! Lets continue the ride... !!
