News / Re: Rebellion buys classic comic archive

Gutted if Leopard from Lime Street not in this deal, likewise Billy's boots - which originated in Scorcher in the 70's prior to merger with Tiger. But generally this is fantastic news :)

Welcome to the board / Re: From 11 o’clock comics to Kapow to now

Hi Templar,

I'm a fellow avid 11 o'clock listener so your name (& sometimes hilarious voice messages) are very familiar to me.

One thing that always frustrates me about 11 o'clock (& US comic podcasts in general) is their complete blindness when it comes to 2000AD. It feels almost willful. Even Vince and the boys very rarely actually mention and God forbid that they should ever download and read it. Ah well, rant over.

Welcome :).

Slightly OT, but I just picked up a page from the old UK Games Workshop Warhammer comic. Its from an ace strip called 'Bloodquest' by 2000AD stalwart Colin MacNeil,

Just received this Defoe commission from Leigh Gallagher - A4 sheet. Very pleased with it. If you are not aware he's got an offer on commissions going on his blog site :-

General / Comic-Con UK Invasion panel

Wish I'd been there for this one!

U.K. creators Grant Morrison, Garth Ennis, Dave Gibbons, David Lloyd, John Higgins and Alan Davis came together on Saturday evening at Comic-Con International in San Diego to tell the origins of their careers and converse about the comic book scene for U.K. creators over the last 40 years.

The final question was probably the most relevant: "Can the British comics industry be saved?"

"No -- the British publishers don't really care about comics," said Lloyd, with no disagreement from his fellow panelists.

Ennis delivered some hard facts about the current status of U.K. creators in the States. "I think '2000 A.D. ' will be fine for a while. The reprints of the old stuff are doing well enough, as are the movies. How [do] you expand on that? I don't know…I'm the youngest here, and I'm 41. The U.K. Invasion, such as it was, was a thing of the past,

Scottish writers such as Mark Millar, Grant Morrison and Alan Grant have put Scotland at the heart of an international superhero industry in comic books and on film

Decent nod to 2000AD.

General / Re: Our Man in Hondo - inexcusably racist?
« on: 08 April, 2011, 08:49:35 am »
You should try reading the freshly reprinted 'Darkies Mob' from Battle/Megazine or seek out 'Force Viper' from 1970's Warlord's if you think Hondo is racist. Banzai!

I'm waiting for this also - curious to know if a scan I supplied of a sketch of Joe Darkie by Mike Western (a year or two before his death) has been included. Fingers crossed!
