Film & TV / Re: Alien Franchise Reboot

Cos that'll work...

... well okay lets wait and see, but I'm going to be childishly cynical about this one to say the least.

I'm waiting for the first 'Ripley is a Disney princess now' meme.  Or the alien queen for that matter...

Really, really excited for this, at a level that surpasses anticipation for literally every other comic on the horizon.

I'll almost forgive ColinYNWA for linking us to an article by humanoid mollusc Rich Johnson.

Is he that bad?  Though I do tend to find there's so much flash / advertising / whatever on that site that my computer can freeze if I scroll down past the headline.

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 - that's weird - I can't imagine what the point of it was!

Also - what about the DR & Quinch and Psi-Judge Anderson calendars (sure I'm missing one)?

SMF strikes again!  Wish there was a source text view so it didn't force size adjustments on what you write after you've posted it!

Harry Twenty on the High Rock 
Alcatraz in space, as Harry Twenty tries to figure out how to escape the classic inescapable prison. Perhaps that old timer can help him...
It's one and done.


It is a one and done.  There was no more.

General / Re: Would the Megazine be better off with fewer strips?
« on: 23 August, 2019, 08:57:32 am »
The problem with less, but longer strips is if you don't like one of them then the percentage of the Meg you don't like has increased (witness the reaction of many to American Reaper).  Just as long as it doesn't go back to fortnightly!

Having not read Starlord I found the Preying Mantis cut-aways maddening. It's so cool in a Thunderhawks way, and the only time we really see it in the progs is when it makes a brief cameo in Fall & Rise of Rojaws and Hammerstein.

You haven't missed much - even in Starlord it's mostly a background feature.

(and was very small-press in feel, though emulating the Valkyrie editions).

For those not familiar - the Dave McKean 'strip' is illustrations to go with Neil Gaiman's Villanelle (which was also in a later one-off, with piccies by somebody else).  May be misremembering, but I think the later publication was called The Great Exhibition of 1851.

As for claims this is a horrible place, I’m not sure where they come from. I dip into Facebook reasonably often, and I don’t really see many comments along those lines on the official 2000 AD page.

I did a double-take when I read that too - considering how much nasty, vindictive, sexist, etc stuff goes on in some of those groups.

What special is that?
Death Man: The Gathering in the 2017 Scream special was a Vigilant prototype/pilot. (Looking again at that special, I’d happily have The Sentinels in 2000 AD.)


Another vote for the Sentinels here.  Maybe have Max installed in one of them :-)

p.s. this is almost the busiest month the blog has seen since I started the slog three years ago (and then kicked it off again prior to my appearance on the Mega-City Book Club).

2000AD and Star Lord Prog 88: Hammer-stein and a Cast of Thousands in… Yesterday’s Hero He was a robot in a man’s war!!!

Hammerstein has his moment in the spotlight, beginning this prog.  Also, the ties between Ro-Busters and Invasion are laid down (if I can mix metaphors).
