Help! / Re: Rebellion and Rights to Eagle Strips

I want to say "DDC should just sell the rights to Doomlord and be done with it", but I can't back that up with anything even close to actual financial advice!

Would it be in their interests to do so? I'm hoping a better informed squaxx can answer this one!

The 'original' Rogue lives on via Tor Cyan

He's dead, isn't he? My recall is very sketchy but didn't that whole thing wrap up with Cyan going in search of the original Rogue (after finding his biochip in Prog 2000)… something…something… another of the bio-beasties that was central to Cinnabar… something something… and then he basically falls to Nu Earth from a very great height.

My last memory of Tor Cyan is him taking the original Rogue's biochip back to Nu-Earth (which is now a grass covered planet of peace). Am I forgetting something?*

Also just started the Resident Evil remake on PC, and it's just glorious. I'd love an over-the-shoulder full-on-3D version, but still - what a game! Think I'll do Resi 7 again after this  :thumbsup:

Currently installing the Avengers game, because I just can't be trusted with a credit card.
Pray for me...  ;)

I still have a premium sub. There's no point in continuing that is there? Not going to get any further goodies. Assume I can cancel that and have normal sub post-issue 80

Did the Dante statuette ever appear?

Last statue I got was Rogue, but then I did get two Halos (cough*keptthattomyself*cough) for some reason. Was a Dante figure ever specifically offered?

If you haven't already done so, I'd give Gwent a go. It's free to play, and alot of fun.
Almost the same as it is in the Witcher 3, but with more card types  :thumbsup:

Dredd, well lovely art and all that, but more silly that isnt endearing me to this any - shame Anderson didn't telekinetically do for the Chaos Bug, or Block Mania for that matter - the answer I am presuming is this is a "magical" disease... OK then.... :/

She's channelling the powers of the severed 'Angel' head that appeared from nowhere.
In defence of this Dredd story, I think I get it now - it's just some daft Dredd fun, using an out-there idea and running with it. And in that respect it is fantastic! I'm just rolling with it now, and awaiting the next slice of impeccably drawn madness  :thumbsup:

I think the reason why it's taken me a while to gel with this one is simply because it's written by Rob Williams, who has earned his reputation as a writer of 'serious' Dredds, and because we haven't had a good old one-off summer epic for a while. My expectations were off, thats all.

Great stuff Woolly- I especially like his facial expression- I think it’s says “still not satisfied even after taking out a Judge”

Edit:Who’s next?

Otherwise known as: "Izzat So!?!"  ;)

Great stuff from all, shame this thread doesn't get the love it used to.

I've stuck this on social media, forgot to stick it here...
Current work in progress:

This is probably the best place to put this:
Finally found the background music for the porno scene in An American Werewolf in London...

Your Mum sounds like a good one, a bit like mine - doesn't 'get' anything from about 1980 onwards!

Anyway, just glad you're ok.
Please tell the police though, even if it's just to inform them. The next person he 'approaches' might not be as lucky as you were.

*edit* - appreciate that the use of the word 'luck' here isn't the use that I intended...

I did prefer Tharg's sarky, bombastic editorial style to Bish-OP's self-confessedly po-faced one - I remember the latter scolding a reader for 'mixing his metaphors, to unsavoury effect'...

I didn't.
Considering, in hindsight, some of the crap that the mighty Bish-op had to run in the Meg at the time, and the backlash from a certain two readers (Matt & Sloano if you were wondering) the fact that he didn't just call them out as King Canutes is commendable.
That he would keep printing their letter efforts, and keep responding to them, is a testament to his love and belief in the prog/meg at the time. Most editors would have simply not printed the letters.

And this is one of the reasons why I believe Bish-Op is one of the greatest editors 2000ad and the Megazine has ever seen. I honestly believe that without his sheer love of the property, Matt Smith would not have been given his time to shine.

Wish he'd have continued as editor when Alan Barnes took over, can't help but think we missed a trick there!

Oh man how good was Ampney Crucis? it reads incredibly well collected together and it is a bit of a shame it's just been left hanging.

The bloke near the end, was that mean to be Stickleback's son?

Guess we'll never know for sure. Ian Edgington isn't known for finishing what he starts...  :-\
