Karyn is in Fetish too, iirc.

Sorry, that probably doesn't help!

Not quite. Prog 1100 was the single Slaine story issue, Lord of the Beasts.

I wish someone had composed a list of how many times Sinister and/or Dexter got shot in the shoulder. By the strip's third year it had become a running gag between myself and Dan Abnett, so by now it must be dozens of times...

More rankings up this morning, and more choices to argue about!


When you finish this epic endeavour, might I suggest you rank the end of year 100-page progs? This year's festive prog will be the 21st edition. [Only took 2 years of campaigning to convince Egmont it was a good idea to try this in the 1990s...]

But what about that festive slump, where for five gloomy years (1997-2001) there was no cover-mounted celebration of the shared delight that is the season of gifts? It would be easy to blame Bish-Op and, latterly, the entire nation of New Zealand: so let's do that. They're on the other side of the planet, anyway: what can they do? We can all whole-heartedly agree that The Hobbit trilogy clearly cements the case that they're a country of united Chrimbo-haters.

Bah humbug.

There may be other writers who haven't made your list...

if I was Tharg, I'd be sorely tempted to announce Andy Diggle's Nemesis and David Bishop's Slaine as coming soon.

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha to me writing Slaine.

Michael Carroll would do a far better job of that.

Andy D on Nemesis? that could work.

Grant Morrison told me at a convention that Mark Millar sued 2000Ad over continuing Canon Fodder with another writer. Maybe some of the Millar stories not being reprinted is partly due to that.

'Sued 2000AD' isn't quite accurate, Millar sent the comic a lawyer's letter complaining about Canon Fodder being handed to a new writer, claiming the character was entirely his own creation. He seemed to have forgotten that Chris Weston co-created the series! Not to mention the irony of Millar complaining about being usurped on a strip, having happily other writers' 2000AD series.

IIRC, an agreement was reached confirming all rights in Big Dave belonged to the creators of that series, while the rights to all other Millar scripted series were assigned to 2000AD - including Maniac 5.

It's in Chapter 12 of TPO, btw.

I can confirm the collection has been extended to 140.

Finally a chance for the WORST OF BISHOP collection the world has been craving!
Soul Sisters!
Dead Men Walking!
The Straitjacket Fits!
And several mediocre to poor one-offs!
 ;) ;) ;) ;) ;)

you see Mr. Bishop, if you’re reading, proof that the crossover strategy worked…

Bwa-ha-ha! My opportunistic marketing spivery worked!

I vaguely recall getting original Rogue despatched into a black hole during my Reign of Terror, but that may well have been retconned away in the 20 years hence...

I maintain that if you split the story and art into separate chunks (which you're not supposed to in comics but I can't help it...), the Prog becomes an x out of 10 proposition (well, there are usually 5 stories).

And with that split, I'd say even the darkest of the 90s managed to get 5 or 6 out of 10 as a minimum. I think it's really only parts of Volume 2 of the Meg that pushed we to actively dislike both story and art on occasion, although rare occasions.

I'm saying a little Kev Walker or John Burns goes a long way, y'know? Throw in a little Frank Quitely or Kevin Cullen and it's like waking up a tired chicken nugget with hot sauce.

Alas, Frank Quitely never worked for the Prog! He worked on Missionary Man, Shimura and Inaba in the Megazine, plus the Meg reprinted his gorgeous Blackheart strip written by Robbie Morrison. But by the time I moved over to 2000AD Frank was busy working for US comics.

The bulk of Kevin Cullen's work was for the Meg as well, aside from one Terror Tale and a handful of V13s.

I still have a premium sub. There's no point in continuing that is there? Not going to get any further goodies. Assume I can cancel that and have normal sub post-issue 80

Did the Dante statuette ever appear?

The fanbase of old white men would be up in arms with it as well.

I, for one, am looking forward to David Bishop's Savage and Andy Diggle's Slaine.

I'm busy writing a series of new historical crime novels for Pan MacMillan, set in late Renaissance Florence.

Besides, Andy would do a much better job of giving Savage the kick up the arse it needs than me.

 ;) ;) ;)
