My idea would be to get the original creators back to re-instate their original intentions with a fun narrative.
So ask Kev O'neil to draw the blood back in.

Or get Barry Kitson to recreate how the Age of the Wolf / Anderson title page should have looked.

Suggestions / 2000AD Uncensored hardback
« on: 12 July, 2018, 10:21:29 pm »
I know except for the coloured Halo Jones my suggestions are largely crap but this is the motherland.

A spiritual successor to Judge Dredd: Cursed Earth Uncensored, this would feature the outrageous and in some case libellous first offerings by writers/artists that the IPC censors requested changes to.

So it would include:

Judge Dredd: Bank Raid by Carlos Equerra with all the hotshot violence re-instated
Judge Dredd: Courtroom by Rufus Dayglo re-drawn for the Class of 79 unless you could get Carlos or Mick to have a go
Tharg's Head Revisited #1: Bloodsuckers by Mick Mahon (reprinted already in Judge Dredd The Mega-History
Tharg's Head Revisited #2: Tharg on a pitchfork by Brian Bolland with the original art and wording re-instated from 1988 Dredd Annual.
Judge Dredd: City of the Damned: Steve Dillons missing pages for prog 404 reprinted in 620.
What a difference an inch makes: How Eagle comics put an extra inch into Brian Bolland artwork to reprint the Judge Death Lives artwork at American sizes (it is funny how they did it)
Uncle Baal's chair and other filth - how the blood was tippexed out of Nemesis the Warlock
Judge Anderson Wolf in a sheep's clothes - a comparison of how the title page should have looked before speech bubbles were added.
Judge Dredd Fortnightly - a completely re-instated version of how the first issue would have looked with:
Anderson - Judge Death Revenge (unchanged)
B.A.D Company by Ezquerra
Blockers
Soul of a Judge/Blood Cadet - already started by Ian Gibson (?)
Helltrekkers
Alan Moore's Dredd script (Badlanders? reprinted in Millidge / Story teller)
Frank Millers 2000ad/ Dredd cover
And also the first stories by significant creators in Lawman of the Future (Simon Fraser, Alex Ronald and Dylan Teague including the alternate Death storyline which was pretty cool - Robbie Morrison)
Add in some fun salacious covers and I'd buy it.

General / Re: 2000AD fanwork legality?
« on: 11 June, 2018, 06:47:14 pm »
not that I'm officially reaching out or explicitly seeking permission from them, because that would probably open up a whole inconvenient can of worms on their part.

I listened to an IP lawyer who explained two things:
1) Ignorance is no defence of copyright law
2) Neither is not making money out of it

So here's my advice. I think making an online book/game would be objected to once discovered. Particularly if it could be found by the general public. So don't proceed without permission unless you're prepared to pull it down later if requested.

Even if you're not infringing copyrights themselves, you run the risk of passing off, which is trading off their goodwill. Honestly I would write your own story. Maybe submit it to Zarjaz etc or print copies off for a few friends but if you put it online you do risk being asked to take it down.

Suggestions / Could we have a Judge Anderson Special?
« on: 06 June, 2018, 05:17:20 pm »
It could be quite a nice opportunity to invite back as many of Anderson's artists to tell a new story or contribute a pin-up.

I can imagine it being quite commercial if it had a Bolland cover.

Dredd got his first special in 1988, so maybe it's time?

Prog / Re: Prog 2084 - Hail to the Chief!
« on: 06 June, 2018, 03:29:00 pm »
This prog is more of the same in a good way. The prog is well balanced with a strip for everyone.

I agree. I know its fashionable to bash the prog but I think as an anthology it has a really solid mix of art styles and writing. I like Survival Geeks and think its really well executed. It always helps when Dredd is on fire (and it is) but really good all round.

Film & TV / Re: Han Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)
« on: 31 May, 2018, 05:18:44 pm »
They pissed off a lot of the star wars hardcore, so the fan boys who would have seen this 10 times have decided not to.

That is the best explanation for the under-performance.
I still think we'll get a sequel to Solo as all Star Wars movies are now tarnished so its even more risky trying something left-field.

I still loved The Last Jedi but then I think our generation of Brits are more used to characters being subverted by new Creators. I mean Luke really going, in person, to fight on Crayt? Bonkers. Be like Yoda rocking up on Bespin in 1980 and having a three way fight with Vader and Son.

it seemed weird to cramp so much into this one story of his origin... some could have been left for the later films... though of course if the internet knowledgable types are to be believed these ain't happening now so its a good job they cramped it all in here I suppose!

Oh man. I loved that they ticked every Han box all in one movie. I've seen so many TV series that take ages to get to the origin... of the story... of the start... where it all began... tease tease (Gotham I'm looking at you) if I go to the cinema I want to see it all. Not saying it was a classic but it was a pretty generous serving.

I think that it is very significant who got left alive

The fact it consisted of Iron Man, Thor and Cap to me makes it likely that however the reversal takes place, it will require some sort of exchange of the lives of the old guard to reinstate the new Avengers team of Spiderman, Black Panther, Iron Patriot, Winter Soldier etc.

I agree with Eamonn that ultimately they make no material difference to Thanos' Plan except that Spidey gets promoted, heroes meet and Gamora shows love for her sister which must be re-paid in some dramatic sense

According to BoxOfficeMojo, Avengers Infinity War made more money domestically in its first weekend than Justice League did in its entire run.

I think that is an astonishing feat that really shows how many more people wanted to see this movie rather than the DC equivalent.

Yup 100% agree.

Marvel dont do 'set pieces' anymore - the whole movie is a 'set piece' but not in a Transformers nonsense way. I cared about the characters and was on the edge of my seat.

So many moments. Never had an audience applaud an entry before.

Thanks Jim. That's helpful. I'm not sure if I'm on a foolish task on this one.
But I'm going to try!
