Jim Calladroid is James Callaghan, Labour PM before Thatcher.

Known as 'Sunny Jim'

Hard to see what the others are The Great something?

Presumably the extension wasn't a cert at the time it was decided to include it in the Heavy Mob, and it would have been strange to omit it for the Aftermath stories.

Maybe just the least worst option in a collection that size.

Age has something to do with it, but it's well known that Dredd sells more than anything else that 2000 AD has.

Even so the fan page for our Strontium Dog short has twice as many likes as the Hachette 2000 AD page, and it's not like we push that much.

Forbidden Planet London are still carrying both.

No idea on sales figures but the facebook page likes for the 2000AD collection is way below that of the Dredd equivalent.

3000 compared to 15000

I'd seen the animated Gibbons rogue before, but just spotted there's a more modern Colbyish version of the run cycle on the freakish kid vimeo page.

I'm not sure 'princessing it in another castle' with the TG would have been any more successful than the clones/duplicates in 'The Hit'

That kind of thing would piss readers off, I imagine.

Working up the line so the TG was a cog in a machine would have extended it, but I'm not sure if you could have had that journey for decades further.

I couldn't honestly say one way or the other, it's not me handling things.

Sure, it was always in the film itself but I'm just the VFX monkey on this one, they didn't approach me until shooting and assembly edit was done.

I guess there's nothing stopping someone doing it, but judging by Owen's post it's something 2000AD want to do by themselves, if it ever happens at all.

Finished the main story, just mopping up the side missions now.

Enjoyed it, but felt like there was too much overlapping content - missions popping up/getting dragged away by other missions. Plus the AI wasn't that great.

Was expecting some trains to pop up, but no...

Bit bored of Hallucinatory missions as well, it doesn't really do much to change the gameplay considering they could distort the landscape and do something a bit different with it - also thought the ending would have been better as an opening to a final section and had the player continue in that environment

What are the odds on that?

Congratulations to Jim and the other winner, thanks for mine and well done!

Good to hear it Alec, thanks for the update!

A snippet of Oscar Wright's storyboards.

Looking forward to this - problems I've had with some of the specials and the prog in general is that there is a lot of set up and then a long wait.

Maybe that's the only way they can do things under the circumstances, but it doesn't make for a satisfying read until it gets collected, and it just makes it hard to keep up any momentum.
