You know, I think it would be possible to put together a tribute reprint collection, but for maximum impact it would work best to just pluck out single episodes from his Rogue and Junker.

I'd vote for a floppy reprint of The Saharan Ice Belt War- his strongest stint on Rogue IMO, with some pretty good early artwork by the Coleby Droid.

That Working Comics Podcast interview with Bish-OP spilled the beans on Williams disappearance from the prog:

But wasn't Williams even more prolific (and accomplished) during the post- Bish-OP era?
We need a new 'Where are they now thread?'.

Solid agreement regarding both Tom Foster and Mark Sexton- top talent.
I'm a fan of Jake Lynch too, but would say he's been quite a 'regular' for the House of Tharg in the past couple years.

Yeah, but where does Deadlock fit into that?

We've had a bunch of talented new Art Droids coming through the construction line recently, any in particular you'd like to see back in the Prog sooner rather than later?

Without referencing specific back Progs or specials, the following made an indelible mark in recent memory;

Jimmy Broxton; A striking style that immediately caught my attention. Would love to see him back in the Prog on either Hope or Sinister Dexter. Or even tackling Dredd.
Kei Zama; Her Blackblood one-off was brilliant. There has to be more ABC Warriors stuff on the way, right? Right?
Leonardo Manco; Very much an established artist already, but his recent turn on Rogue Trooper highlighted the fact that Tharg should pay out for a full time transfer fee. Pair him up with John Smith and see what happens.

I'm a huge fan of Clint Langley, and his contribution to the ABC Warriors saga, but would also like to see some fresh takes on Old Red Eyes and chums.
A series of shorter stories by varied artists (including the Langley Droid of course) would be very welcome.
An arc by Kei Zama would be essential, her Blackblood one-off was stunning.

Unfortunately it is not available digitally because that is the way I get my comics or order from places like Amazon

Ebay will be your best bet.
I'd recommend waiting until a few weeks after FCBD before seeking it out, give the prices a chance to settle.

Other than that you will always find a few kind souls on this forum with a spare copy.

I'm purposely seeking Switch games out in physical format partly due to collector OCD and partly out of fear of running out of space on the 128GB SD card I slapped into it the day after I bought it.

Cheers Steve, but I believe the question was "How do you get 2000AD Regened?"

I've formulated a three part plan;

1) Print and laminate three of your favorite 2000AD covers in extras small size (60mm x 25mm).
2) Cut your hair* mohawk style and apply blue face paint.
3) Bust into the Rebellion offices and yell "Here are my boys....make them into men!"

Been looking for a cheap copy of Skyrim on the Switch for a while now- no dice.

Physical software for the Switch has the stubborn habit of retaining a higher than average price tag.

Books & Comics / Re: Bargains/deals thread (?)

If you haven’t read The Vision, then it’s a bit of a bargain there.

Picked it up equally dirt cheap on a previous Amazon digital sale, but haven't gotten round to it yet.
Perhaps my only 'modern' Marvel purchase from the past few years- this former Marvel Zombie has regained sentience.

I look at something like this and whimsically imagine that it's nothing more than market research.
"Will we be able to sell road-kill like Secret Empire even at €0.99?" some 22 year old intern ponders.

Hard not to recommend the Walt Simonson Thor volumes at these prices.
I might give some of the 70's horror stuff a go- not familiar with it at all really.

Cold callers who now open with "S'okay, nothing to worry about".

I genuinely stopped answering my hall door in 2008. Nuthin good ever came of it.

The entire run is online.

Was reading through that on my lunch break earlier, surprised to find that there are several episodes I can clearly recall- must have been a spoiled brat very good child to have that comic and 2000AD bought for me regularly.

It holds up quite well.
Clever stuff having the youngest member of the Celeste crew being the only one small enough to fit inside a commandeered Zoid.

Gerald's Game
Basic  horror about 'kinky' sex gone wrong.. Effing brilliant!. proper good acting from yerwan who was aged up to portray the original 'Silk Spectre' from Watchmen. A bit mad. Tense. Great.
 Original,  truleh creepeh.
 Explained itself a little more than I personally felt it had to.
 I Strongly recommend.

Watched that with the missus a while ago, and we both really enjoyed it.
Only minor quibble is the reveal at the end- just didn't land smoothly for either of us.
Still, a strong recommendation from me too.
