I managed to pick up all the pins individually, not in the box (and for a few quid more - harrumph ;-) - they are very cool!   But yes, a trio of Gunnar, Bagman and Helm would have been great!

First up - my unending thanks to all the droids involved in making the 40th Festival happen. I had a fantastic day, met some legends and some future-legends too. Everyone was wonderful, and I came away with big smiles. And a sketch. And another sketch. And some page art.  And...   ;-)

For anyone interested - and assuming it's OK to post this here (admin?) - I've stuck some random photos from the event here:  https://www.flickr.com/photos/frontios/albums/72157680163565136

Rock on the 50th!!

On the subject of recognition — and not that I'm a forum regular or anything (I do quite like being labelled a "Sub Basement Sewer Unit") — but for all you a) cosplayers and b) famous peoples, if you see a bog-standard middle-aged guy with an old brick of a Pentax camera (instead of a brand more fashionable) standing around looking nervous about asking if it's ok to take your picture... then that'll be me. Please say 'hi'!

No, I wouldn't expect the hotel to feed us (!), but I was wondering whether there might be a food concession, or someone/something at least selling snacks/drinks or something (presuming the bar doesn't cover that?). It's gonna be a long day and I don't really want to be running around Hammersmith wasting time in the middle of it...

Yeah, I'd kind of like to know if any of the talks will be recorded and available later - there's a big overlap on the schedule (just for the talks, let alone anything else!) and there's an awful lot I'd love to see!

Also: 'nudge' on the details about who will have tables, etc.  And also on any general info about the venue (like: facilities, food/drink options if any, etc) - kinda need to plan a bit :-)

Creative Common / Re: The Dredd Head drawing thread!

Very (very, very!) rough and sketchy Dredd — my first attempt at anything arty in any form both a) in decades and b) on an iPad. It's admittedly a wee bit more than just a head, if you can tell ... ;-)

Apologies for the stupid question, but: deadline is when?

Just following up on the Charlton Heston block references above —  Charlton Heston was the first named block ("City Block 1", way back in prog 117). I'd forgotten it cropped up again...

« on: 03 February, 2017, 09:11:30 PM »
My first prog was actually Prog 2, but I managed to rewind to Prog 1, and I've been here ever since.

Like many early readers, I've survived the rite of passage known as "mum threw them out"; it was about 140 progs. In fact, I replaced many of those 140 with the actual same copies — mum gave them to a school fete and I bought back as many as I could afford at the time. It took me until somewhere in the 1990s to get the vast majority of them all replaced, but getting a replacement Prog 1 took until 2014. I am finally whole again.

OK, consider me intrigued and willing to have an attempt... ?

Yeah, add me to the list of people perplexed as to why long-standing monthly subscribers (in my case for many, many years) miss out on these...    :-(
