I was talking about the snow, mind.

Umm… OK… :rolleyes:

Where the hell did that come from?

I'm a fucking goth and I thought that

Like too many of us, he is staring his own mortality in the face.

was a bit gloomy, especially in a thread that's making a pleasantly positive change from the recent discussions on the state of the prog.

Ezquerra will always be my first choice but we do have to be a little realistic.  Like too many of us, he is staring his own mortality in the face.  Let's hope its for a while yet though.

Well, that's a cheery thought for a Sunday morning. Way to kill the positive vibes, sir. Congratulations!

Sorry to be a jaded fool...but isn't this just going to be like all the others...a big threat...the team at their lowest ebb ending in a finale where they punch something a lot till they win?

“Story will contain story elements! Will probably have a beginning, a middle, and an end! When, oh when, will we see the back of this tiresome formula?”

(Slightly less facetiously: yes, fair enough, if you’re not invested in any of these characters after seventeen (?) movies, it’s probably not for you.)

You're not mixing it up with 'Trash' are you? I did.

Which was written by Paul Kupperberg, another US writer with a fine track record who proved fairly unsuitable to the 2000AD format…

I guess he calls himself Dayglo because he's given up any pretence of subtlety, subdued hues or shading.

You know Rufus doesn't do the colouring, right?

I've only had time for a quick skim myself, but it looks like a great big pile of really good stuff. Can't quibble at the price, either!

Rich Johnston gets a simple story hopelessly wrong due to inability to read a basic press release… I'm shocked. Shocked I tell you!

I bet you pronounce GIF as ‘jif’, don’t you…?

Isreal […] (should also probably be spelled phonetically).

Or at least correctly! :-)

Why, yes… Tharg should just hire a team of writers who are all as good as Alan Moore. I’m sure he hasn’t thought of that. He’s looking now at all the rejected Future Shocks from the slush pile that were as good as Alan Moore’s and just kicking himself that he didn’t think to commission those writers instead of sending them rejection slips. What a fool he’s been…

An apology from Mr Campbell. Wow.  You have achieved something so few here have.

I apologise for stuff all the time. I was wrong — that was the wrong thing to say. I missed the context, but that’s on me and I’m sorry I said it. I’m not really sure why you felt the need to be a dick about it… I’m broadly confident I’ve neither run over your dog nor insulted your wife but, if I did, I’m sorry for that, too.

I'm simply a novice writer that initially began writing to improve upon my own literacy (having been illiterate at one time), and will post what has to date been short stories, a few novelettes, novellas and so on simply on appropriate public forums (having never published anything beyond that, and certainly not in a professional vein). 'Who would read it?' Well, I suppose that doesn't matter in that I'm enjoying creating it.  That's the only reason I do much of anything.

have fun with your project K9

That’s a perfectly fair point, which I missed earlier. I can’t edit my previous post, but I will apologise for it.

"When, not if… but when you realize what you have been fighting for and believed in all of your life turns out to be wrong, that you not let pride, vanity or apathy keep you from trying to change it to what is right."

For the love of God, get yourself an editor.

Good God. Does any of this actually matter? My books turn up. I read them. I put them on a shelf. What number volume a specific delivery is going to be in several months’ time…? I just don’t get it!
