Help! / Re: Galway bound - Hive-mind recommendations?
« on: 22 June, 2017, 11:36:26 pm »
Galway is great fun, for a pub you cant go to far wrong with An Púcán http://anpucan.ie/ a lively music pub, and if you go to the end of the main street 'Shop Street' there is a huge choice of pubs ranging from the superpub to the quieter old man pub.
The small pubs are usually better for a bit of atmosphere and conversation, a lot of the bigger ones have music ranging from rock to trad. I should qualify all this by saying its a few years since I have been out in Galway. Avoid Eyre square and the Supermacs area after closing time, it can get messy!

If you have some time on your hands and a car you can easily get to the Cliffs of Moher in Co. Clare or head west from Galway out to Connemara, which is nice.  If you have a good lot of time head to the Aran Islands and visit Dún Aonghasa, you can get a flight to the island at Invern http://aerarannislands.ie/.  Of course the neighbouring county of Mayo is far nicer;)

The only writers Tharg has booted from strips of their own creation are Gerry Finley Day

Was this ever actually clearly stated?

Dave, I have both issues and the print quality seems good. Not sure if I have the time in the next few weeks to scan, Hols coming up! I can send them over to you if it would be of any use.

Stay safe, just watching the news, worrying.

The Four Faces is great, I read it years back, I think in my sisters copies of 'The Best Of Misty'.
Reading it again reminded me of how unnerving Misty could be.  Moonchild, a decent tale too, great art.

Most of the material has appeared.
Helltrekkers, the first Anderson appeared in the Prog, Bad Company by W&G and Carlos appeared in the Meg in an article.
 Blockers was in one of the Mega Specials, Badlander, first episode art completed, and the script exits too.  The cadets tale was retooled and appeared in Lawman of the Future.

Not read a review thread in a bit, a bit taken aback by the lack of love for Brink. I'm loving the claustrophobia, the art and the mystery, is it a space limiting cult or is there 'something else'. For me its well told comics.
The rest are all ticking along nicely except for Deadworld, whoda thunk that this would have made for compelling story telling, we know the end, everyones dead! Brilliant from KekW and Mr Kendall.

Mike Carroll's computery fun!
The comic did exist, and I migh be on the trail of what the cover was. Time will tell.

The contents of the comic were to be;
Bad Company
Soul of a Judge/Blood Cadet

Got this on the day and its a great addition to the 2000 AD Zine tradition.
 Full colour and some great art, it makes for a great read. The first tale, a throwback to the early Eagle photostories works surprisingly well.  Production is fantastic, I'd say get it before its gone.

I didn't know the ebooks were starting to be released as print versions, I must get!
The Black Flame novels IIRC were for the most part a lot of fun, Fiends and Anderson were standout, and and few of the Dredds, Stront and Rogues were solid tales too.

I read that years ago, good book!   I'd go for Dune, one of my favourites, failing that anything by Asimov, and select Harry Harrison.
