come up with the notion that they should have given the creators Rebellion's recent IP acquisitions to play with instead, though I grant you this runs the risk of having a 2000ad special that is 90-100% stories about catgirls.

We've had the Scream!/Misty special, plus we have that V thing coming up (can never remember what it's called, Valiant/Vanguard/V-something else).

a friend asked if i wanted to go to this - I'd love to see the Stones live once before I die but tickets were  a bit rich for me.

They're getting on a bit - much bigger risk is to get to see them before they die...

Anyone complaining about the quality of this Special I think needs to compare it to other specials, not the Prog - it's waybetter than a lot of them over the years. I mean, when was the last time you cracked open one of the Judge Dredd Mega-Specials from the mid-90s...

Or the Sci-Fi specials from the 1970s, early 1980s.  As with the annuals, it seemed the prog was bought out of pocket money, so had to be good, while the annuals and specials were more expensive, so would be presents and bought by somebody who would never actually read them.

(First post after two months break from this forum)

Great news about film of Rogue Trooper, a film with flashback to the Quartz Zone Massacre would be perfect story. (maybe doing first three stories in 2000AD, that debut page would be great opening)

Welcome back!

As for how I'd do the film - if I'm optimistic, Rogue could do some wandering, get caught up in something like Fort Neuro, then wander off into the mists at the end (as there would be no point having a sequel if he catches the TG, as we know from bitter experience).

Did they?  Don't remember that storyline?

Did the GIs choose to fight…?

Ah, I see - I'd read the original statement as possibly being about conscription.

Not allowed to say! Will say that I'm on the Wednesday one too!

Can't you mask your isp and watch it via the BBC iPlayer if you are overseas? Theoretically of course, I wouldn't condone such activities.

Ah, misread the date - I asked on the Wednesday how the Tuesday episode had gone, but got the week wrong!

Well again we could get distracted by what a great podcast it was again but there are two far more significent things we need to mention.

1) How the hoopin' heck have we got to Frankie already. Pottering down the road listening to the show I was at first delighted when I heard 'Relax', but then more than a little shocked that you'd made such progress that we'd got to this*!

2) How the f**k are you so young that you had to explain the Osmonds??? Your youth disgusts me... I'm so old...

I'm old enough to remember Frankie in the charts, but not the Osmonds.  Any reference to the seventies group would have gone completely over my head in 1983.

Just make the whole thing an adaptation of Fort Neuro and I'll go twice.

Glad I'm not the only one who loves Fort Neuropa!

but the Southers sought to conduct their war using what are basically slave soldiers.

Did they?  Don't remember that storyline?

t’s not hard to meet expenses . . . they’re everywhere.

Gah!  How slow am I?  Took me three reads to get it.

<facepalm> :crazy:

Maybe I’m just thick, but I don’t get it.

Meeting expenses usually means managing to pay expenses.

Meeting people means to make the acquaintance of people (through friends, in pubs, clubs, down the supermarket, etc).

In this instance, meeting expenses is making the acquaintance of more expenses, rather than managing to pay off the ones already accrued...

Friday is as much a part of Rogue Trooper as the original, for me.

I'm guessing you started reading 2000AD when Fr1day was running?

A quick look on Barney suggests the only Fr1day that was reprinted was The War Machine.

Tell a lie - Wagner/Higgins' Casualties Of War and Millar/White's G.I. Blues have also been reprinted.

It is more wishful thinking than anything else. I cant see anyone else picking this up and continuing the story-line. This is the same case with Zenith. Both will be remembered with great fondness and  I would rather never have a new story-line than a twisted version going forward.

I enjoyed it, but for an idea on how it would happen, and differ from the three books we know (this example with Moore's full blessing), look at the Neil Gaiman MarvelmanMiracleman books.  Quality writing, but of a completely different style to what went before.
