I realised that instantly and almost edited my post but incorrectly assumed nobody would care enough.
Thank you!

It doesn't matter if you do. They don't have to be read in order.
Sure and you can watch Memento backwards but I was replying pedantically to someone saying the Psi Files were printed in chronological order.

The psi-files exist if you want a complete and chronological run of Anderson.

Not read any of this (or watched any trailers.). 3D or not 3d?

Krysler's Mark now listed on Hachette site. What else will be in there beyond City of the Damned?
Jason Brashill = In the Year 2120.
Carlos = Destiny's Angels?

I see the ABC Warriors are back in January.

I have just done a re-read of Hope and came across an ad in one of those Progs saying they would be back in 2017.

Not the first time one of their series has turned up later than expected. In this case, assuming it happens, I guess it’s not too late. :)
Starts in the end of year Prog. In December.

My condolences to you John and I sincerely regret it if my own drivel has led you to feel you have to drag this up in public.

Without a statement, it's easy to assume a creative type having a Gibson/McKenzie/G. Morrison disagreement with editorial (because it's happened so often), but it's not necessary.  Until we hear otherwise, I choose to believe that Smith has passed the baton

Smith said he gave Long his blessing at the 40th anniversary party*. As you say, it's odd not to have heard the official line on such a significant move.

The background to this - as much as we know, anyway - is that Smith posted on social media in February, saying he was writing the third episode of A Dying Art**, after a two year hiatus.

Smith said Carter had already completed the two episodes we've just read. Carter getting paid for the incredible work he's done, and not losing him as artist, are the only compelling reasons I can see for the decisions taken.

And they don't explain the simultaneous appearance of Rory McConville's Devlin Waugh. ***


* He also said he was looking forward to experiencing the strip as a reader, but - understandably - also hopes it turns out awful without him. He's also said he hopes not to go 'all Alan Moore' about it.

** Smith described the Psychosphere episodes he had in mind as a haunted house story set in the seventies, the house in question being London's Dolphin Square.

*** Smith said he was also keen to write more Waugh, celebrating the strip's 25th anniversary by killing the character off.

As much as I share your enthusiasm for Smith and Indigo Prime, I think two episodes of a story being written, drawn, paid for and still unable to be run after two years leaves the editor in a very sticky situation.

I don't really want to get myself too far into the murky waters of Internet speculation and tale-telling but if you're using John's Facebook page as a source you should be able to find the post where Peter Doherty bluntly says they were asked for more Devlin but John didn't write anything.

The preceding assigns no value judgements to the actions of inactions described or imagined.

Pacific Rim Uprising
https://youtu.be/fUjicxMPDzs

Oh dear... I think Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim CGI was so perfect to this, but that was 4 years ago?!
?? Not sure what the problem is. The first one was a pile of cheesy toss and this looks like more of the same.

No but I am very interested in how you have managed to do this relatively cheaply.  My mate has one fancy dan one (all wired in behind the walls and a remote controlled massive screen) and I assumed that this sort of kit cost a grand or more.

Every time I watch a film on a projector system I am amazed at how much more immersive it becomes.
First, spend a quarter of a million pounds on a house with a big enough living room...

I probably shouldn't be dumbfounded that there's still a mis-spelling of 'colouring' in there, but there you go. Good grief. You'd think someone might have at least done a ‘find’ across the entire file for that.

Also don't quite understand why Phase 4 wasn't held in high regard. It blew my mind twice in the space of twenty years. https://forums.2000ad.com/index.php?topic=38501.0
That's a great thread! For me, I think Phase 4 is a great ending to the story but it's just not as engaging a story in itself. The shift of focus to the distanced narrator telling us about the Lloigor and what happens makes everything less immediate than the other three. That it's the weakest of the four certainly doesn't make it bad.

Plus, you know, the colours. Actually, maybe that was a deliberate decision to try and give the reader a taste of the impossible horrors visited on the unprepared human mind exposed to creatures from outside space and time.

Not bad, but missing the competition win in the mid-80s.  :lol:
I actually have a vague memory of this from rereading something a few years ago. What was the competition?

However, I'm afraid I'll have to refer your claim to our typist Senior Correspondence Recording Consultant for adjudication.

I hate that duck! I assume this is not a thread about Keith Harris.
