What if Disney specifically screwed ADF because they are banking on him dying soon?
There is zero chance a company with their Orwellian marketing machine doesn't know what the optics on this are like, yet they did it anyway.  One has to wonder how they thought they'd come out ahead.

I would imagine that the late Vonda McIntyre would have found her Star Wars royalties useful in her final years. Timothy Zahn isn't getting any younger either...

Mark Harrison

Get Lee Carter.

Stevie's absolute favourite comic artist of all time:

Kevin O'Neill

Diamond have invoiced both the 2000AD Summer SciFi Special 2020 & Meg 418 to my LCS here in South Australia for next week's shipment.

Just picked up Meg 418 from the Adelaide Comics Centre.

A single copy of the SciFi Special was listed on the shipping invoice but was not packed  in any of the boxes.

Just like d times, eh Diamond?

Be thankful you don't live in the U.S. Last one I received was #2166.

I'm in Australia and was getting my progs from my LCS - last one here was also #2166.

Callooh callay fractious day!

Diamond have invoiced both the 2000AD Summer SciFi Special 2020 & Meg 418 to my LCS here in South Australia for next week's shipment.

Looks like our wait may be finally over.

Rebellion also own the Solaris Books  SF & F imprint, books from which have been nominated for & won Hugo & Nebula Awards.

Nice one, Tharg!

The cover for the Tammy & Jinty Special:

Well hello there! Would that be The Cat Girls from the pages of Sally &, following the merger of the two titles, Tammy?


The 2019 Tammy & Jinty Spcial was Stevie's favourite single issue of any comic which he read last year. July can't come soon enough!

ooh, that's very nice, but I do love the Bolland one and I'm not buying two copies! Decisions decisions.....

David Roach has posted on Facebook that the Brian Bolland cover art is reproduced on the endpapers of the limited edition.

Oddly enough, both editions will set Stevie back roughly the same amount in Australian dollars whether I purchase the limited edition directly from Rebellion (A$95 + A$24 postage) or the regular Bolland version imported via Diamond in the US, which is retailing at US$50 , which meansthat it would be hitting the shelf  of my local South Australian comic shop at the A$100 mark.

Funny old world, innit?

Was the limited, English-language edition printed by Rebellion or Delirium?

One thing that's occurred to me having read that review is I wonder why they've not thought to cash in on Al Ewing's current well deserved reputation coming off the back of Immortal Hulk?

One suspects that would be why Al has written an exclusive story for the FCBD M.A.C.H. issue 0.

Zombo would seem a good way to go. Adding a balance and different side to Tharg's organ. It seems they have gone for the gritter side of things.

Possibly because Brink & Jaegir are still on-going concerns in the prog? The latter strip should appeal to the gamers in Tharg's potential audience.

Death Squad, paperback, 128 pages, 6 August 2020.

If this doesn't leap immediately onto your want list then there is something wrong with you.

Righty-o! Prog 2162 & Meg 415 have both arrived & been devoured Down Under so here is Stevie's pick:

1) The World According to Chimpsky by Kenneth Niemand & PJ Holden (PROG 2131)   
2) Guatemala by John Wagner & Colin MacNeil (PROG 2150-2157)
3) The Harvest by Michael Carroll & Nick Percival (PROG 2158-2161)

Stevie's ordered his copy & fingers crossed that it lobs up in Oz this side of Crimbo.
