Okay who is Kenneth Niemand? We did this last time he gave us good Dredd and once again he gives us good Dredd. Damned good Dredd. It was bloomin' hilarious and I sat reading it grinning joyfully beginning to end. Looked great, moved well and was an absolute delight... its only two problems were its two teases

1. Don't give us Nerm Chimpsky then snatch him away like that. You tease you... you...

2. Who are you? As we learnt last time Neimand is 'no one' in German, similar to Keiner which means pretty much the same and is a bit like Kenneth... so who are you you marvelous tease?

Anyway bring back Chimpsky soon and all will be forgiven.

Scarlet Traces is also great fun as it has been to date. Is it me or is D'Israeli's colouring very Cam Kennedy this episode? Anyway like the way the story based on War of the World's has essentiall come full circle and taken us back to War of the Worlds.

This x2 ^^^^

News / Re: 2000AD Villains Takeover Special
« on: 14 May, 2019, 04:46:45 pm »
I've just been into Forbidden Planet in London and picked up a leaflet advertising a signing of a Villains Takeover Special, with an image of all the bad guys from 2000AD and the 2000AD logo.

This seems to be a one-off comic, but I've heard nothing about it. Does anyone know anything?

It's happening on Saturday 4th May between 1pm - 2pm.


A bunch of us are going to meet up to get things signed and/or go for a drink (mostly the drink, to be honest).  Copied from farcebook:

"It's Free Comic Book Day and also 99p 2000AD Day this year.
At the moment, there is only one signing happening and it's at Forbidden Planet and it has Matt Smith (Tharg) and Greg Staples signing the Villains Special, from 13:00-14:00
You know the score, meet up at the signing and then wander across to the Crown and Anchor in Neal Street and If we're not visible downstairs, then we'll be upstairs.
Come along and meet the Southern Contingent after the signing and have a chat over a few drinks. It's much better than tapping away at a keyboard.
See you there!"

That sounds Amazing!  How I long for that kind of comradery, meeting to discuss 2000ad over a drink. I would attend every event! However, I live in Canada where no one knows the thrills of 2000ad and comic collectors are more concerned with the value of their variant covers instead of the joy of reading good comics.
Have a drink for me and extend my gratitude to Tharg!

Talk to Trout see above... he's in Moose ******* country too

I had firmly ruled this out, but an now ambiguous,  do they have a bar this year?
would be happy to come through for a pint nearby, but the Con is IMHO a bit half ersed and I really didn't like the layout in the Concert Hall.
Any sign of Butt'Man coming?  :o

Maybe its just me being tired and jaded, but with the notable exception of Scarlet Traces nothing is working in the prog for me just now.
 I've given up on Kingmaker, the FS didnt hook me, Max Normal feels like one of those slightly misjudged 'What ever happened to...' series from a few years back that missed the mark.

And the Dredd doesn't seem to be a Dredd story but a complex and on-going tale that would perhaps be better suited to a novel or a text story in the Megazine. I'm hoping this isnt world building: I've thought the big Organised Crime syndicates in Dredd stories seldom seem plausible, especially when they are portrayed as ongoing soap operas. and as mentioned above trying to remember minor characters from one-off stories from way back is beyond my feeble mind, having said that, au contraire! seeing the return of the main character from The Great Game in Scarlet Traces was a joy, along with Hobb's End and yes 'Spit-spot' which is totally in keeping with her character, especially after the heroic waste of life before it.

Lovely artwork, lovely man, a total gent.
TMO should be singing his praises, employing and generally fawning over this last remaining elder god of comics...IMHO  :D

I enjoy it mostly, sometimes the obvious ‘ this is so’n’so backstory’ episodes are a bit tiresome as they seldom add to the overall picture.

I’ve liked the whole refocusing on Carol and Daryl, along with Micione, and seeing some of the settlemts flourishing, also things that previously irked: monster trucks, driving endless but never having to get fuel have all gone, only niggle is no-ones ever worked out you could use mountain bikes for moving around quickly, quietly and out run zombies...
