Prog / Re: 2000 AD in Stages

Yeah - I think it's my favorite out of Future Worlds / Total War / Robo-World.  It really marks the end (I think) of these well put together poster collectibles.

(Well, there's the 12-piece Mega-City Primer in progs 501-512, but it's just not as good a composition.  Oh, and the Tribal Imagery ones: a 2-part ABC Warriors in 1055-1056 and a 4-part Ukko in 1057-1060.  They're interesting, but incongruously tied to rave culture.)

I completely don't remember the Ukko one

me too - google hsa no images, can anyone post one?

There are 99 helmets in that first panel - I liked Pin as a Psycho murdering the odd colleague, but how could they not notice slaughter on that scale?

Rabban?  :-*

Google tells me its a character in Dune, but I don't get the reference

It was a tongue in cheek suggestion, I don't really want a 'glad they're dead' thread.

I did however fulfill an oath I swore in the 80s and bought a bottle of champagne when Thatch died. I was helping a friend move that weekend and she initially thought it was a housewarming gift, but once I explained what we were celebrating, she was even happier. I had no time for those who said "lay off, she's an old lady with dementia" ... that just means she was allowed to get old without accounting for her evil. I've spotted quite a few "still hate Thatcher T shirts this summer.

If they ditch all that promethearse/covenant bullshit, there's still scope for a good sci-fi horror franchise, keeping the alien as a 'monster in the shadows - I mean, if a dude in a hockey mask with a knife can get 12 movies, no reason why a killer xenomorph can't be deployed in multiple sf settings

heh, when I saw a new post on this tread, I wondered if it was Koch - we need a "dancing on their graves" thread for the likes of him, Epstein, Thatcher , Maxwell etc.

Oh god, I must be middle-aged ... I've just spent 20 minutes analyzing a spreadsheet of retail sales and finding it fascinating

Yeah I felt no need to replace my 2 paperbacks with that collected version as the extras weren't that impressive, but I would buy one with all those other bits you mentioned - just been looking at "The Debentures of Loofah Bathknight" on t'net which I'd never heard of

Website and Forum / Re: How to make a healthy vibrant forum?

On a personal note, as I don't do FB if this place goes I'll have no-one to talk with about 2000 AD or even many other things unless I'm at a gig.

^^^ This. I am not signing my soul (or my data at least) to FB just to talk about 2000ad

I think it would help if the forum got a bit more attention from Rebellion TBH, for example the Day Of Dredd could have been punted heavily here and a bit of buzz created, but that seems reserved for social media, it would be good if we weren't the poorer cousin when it came if promos and attention( sorry for the sour grapes) perhaps if some info came out only here (a bit like Talking Dead) it might enliven things?

^^^ This too - The first I ever heard about "Day of Dredd" was when Proudhuff posted about it the other day .... if only Rebellion could hire someone to publicise such events on their public forum, you know like a PR droid.

No disrespect to CFM who does all the boring slog of posting them, but the art comp thread doesn't feel like a forum thing any more.

Excellent news, big LA fan here! I loved the pseudo-Arkwright that appeared in Nikolai Dante.

Congrats on the 100!

Wow, that's a helluva list, should keep you busy for years!

The Pit with Stacey Whittle

Looking forward to this one - I remember one of the first ECBT review podcasts that Stacey did with Iz .. she won me over with her comment (add Geordie accent for full effect) "Just look at Dredd in that panel - he looks like he needs a reet big hug"  :lol:

Got mine but I seem to be in a weird place with the Meg lately - I flick through, realise that I can't remember the last issue and put it to one side for a thorough read-through ... and then the next one arrives. I'm now several months behind in my Meg-reading. Lots of "part three"s in this one, but I haven't read the first two parts yet.

At least we'll have bendy bananas.

Edit: which I meant to post in the politics thread.  Ah well.  It's here now.

I certainly agree that Johnson's career should have ended back in 1994, when he made up that myth!

Stewart Lee has been writing about BJ often in his Sunday column,, adding to his name each time - he now refers to him as "Boris Piccaninny Watermelon Letterbox Cake Bumboys Vampires Haircut Wall-Spaffer Spunk-Burster Fuck-Business Fuck-The-Families Get-Off-My-Fucking-Laptop Turds Johnson" - which come to think about it, is an easy way to fill up a 500 word column if you repeat the gag a few times!  :lol:

I had no idea the Kzin had crossed over into Trek (must reread Ringworld sometime soon!)

I thought I had early onset dementia while reading the star trek wiki last night, because it was talking about races and stories that I had absolutely no memory of ... then realised they were from the online game  ::)
