Really upset to hear the sad news. I stood in the stairwell today at work in disbelief.

I also wish I met Carlos but I'm grateful to have had the pleasure of attending his and John Wagner's talk at the 2000AD 40th event.

I just took out my prog 1 to see the preview image of Dredd. TBH I'm not sure if Carlos drew that but as we all know, the design is his. It grabbed my attention 41 years ago… and all these years on it hasn't let go. Not only was Carlos one of the best comic artists in the history of the medium – when it came to character design, he was a genius. 

I was just reading his first full colour prog strip in the Case Files a few days ago.

For those not interested in comics it might be difficult to understand the impact some of these creators have on our lives.

My condolences to his family and friends.

NAZIS: Kill all the jews.  Put them in gas chambers with the queers.
SJWS: No.
MODERATES: It's the SJWs intransigence I'm most angry at.

And just so we're all on the page - while the reference to Nazism dates all this to the 1940s, there are assaults on jews, muslims, women, transgender happening across the world to this day (I've seen more recent headlines, but typically the most recent I could find on a quick search of BBC News just now was damage to a Jewish cemetery last year and the usual attacks on transgender people).
And not just Jews and Muslims. Christians have been under attack in many Middle Eastern and even southeastern European countries/regions.

Film & TV / Re: The Last Jedi - Forum Opinion

…the Youtube algorithm still decided to stuff the recommendations column with Diversity And Comics* videos - Youtube is deliberately creating a hostile atmosphere in the discussion just like they deliberately engineered comments sections full of unashamed racists to encourage repeat pageviews and higher advertising rates.
There have always been entitled fans, but we're at the first point in history where their man-baby antics can be successfully monetized, and this is why we're seeing more of them, not because they've somehow successfully organised and become a social movement.  See also: Twitter and Nazis.

* presumably named after the two things the presenters hate most.

Youtube algorithms that are perhaps affected by D&C having 56k+ subscribers?

Many won't like his terminology, but from what I gather, he doesn't hate comics or diversity, he hates comics that he considers to be poorly written that don't sell and that he argues have resulted in comic stores closing down. His daughter is Muslim so I doubt he hates diversity.

(No comment from me on The Last Jedi as I haven't seen it. In fact, today is the last day it's showing at my not so local cinema.)

I saw this in WHSmiths but was rushing around doing Christmas shopping, thinking I would pick it up later. Few days on when I looked for it in the mess that is the WHSmiths magazine racks I was told by a member of staff that it sold out.

p.s. there were a few Future Shock style stories in Starlord - I think one or two of them made it into an annual a few years later - the one about alien vampires by Ezquerra, and a Casanovas one about a man being paid to dream leading to hallucinating that people around him are insects?

And of course there was 'GOOD MORNING, SHERIDAN SHELDON, I LOVE YOU!' by TB Grover, Casanovas and Nutall.

*groan* - the amount of people who misremember my name as Sheldon...

Apologies if that grated. I get the same. I've had some bizarre misrememberings of my full name. Often misremembered as a name that isn't more common than mine. I often give up and don't even correct people nowadays. 

BTW IIRC that short story I mentioned was a fill-in for Strontium Dog (he comments, putting this back on topic).

On the other hand, I can confirm that stepping on a rake has exactly the results depicted in every Tex Avery/Chuck Jones cartoon.
Same goes for slipping on a banana skin – something that I thought occurred only in cartoons and comic strips. I once saw it happen for real and probably will never will see it happen again. Boy, does it make for a spectacular fall.

I got there at around 4.30. There wasn't anyone in the queue, which was a shame. Hope it was busier earlier on. Had a pleasant chat with Kek-W and Rufus. I also popped into our regular pub but no boarders were around.
