"Way out West", Prog 1221.  Not quite a parody, the duo have to capture a syn-human "actor" in a virtual reality style wild west show which is going to be converted into a gladiatorial show.

There's a comedy Dredd strip from I think the Megazine.  A scrawler is sentenced to community service with a block cleaning firm and that shows a dog-vulture turd as looking like a dog's turd

Jay Faerber has confirmed more Copperhead us heading our way soon, with a new artist on board...


He's always said its was on it way back so wasn't too worried, just had to be patient. That said its a real shame about the art change. Drew Moss looks okay, not too back but he's no Scott Godlewski. Wonder what he's moving onto? Real shame this book isn't doing better, its quite superb.

Looking forward to getting more whatever. Hopefully not too much longer to wait?

Scott Godlewski has just finished off the rather excellent Dark & Bloody for Vertigo and he's now starting on a comic book sequel to the Lost Boys again from Vertigo and out in October

Necrophage? Rennie/Burns - the title sounds like a fit, but I can't remember the story.

Post Necropolis story with cannibal cults supporting ghouls who used to be their relatives, one guy was stealing bits from Resyk.

I believe it will be Issue 56, which means it'll be released some time in... March 2017 (I think)

Help! / Re: Microssoft Works and Windows 10

Cheers Professor Bear, to be honest I'm most likely going to stick with 7, the more I look at 10 the less appealing it becomes but at least I now know there's a way to keep my files if I have to change PC.

Help! / Microssoft Works and Windows 10
« on: 05 June, 2016, 02:18:31 pm »
Some tech help/advice is needed.  My father has been bugging me to upgrade from Windows 7 to 10, the free window is running out.  I'm not too fussed about 10 (it seems like nothing special to me) but I'm wondering if either:-

A - Windows Works works in 10, or if

B - There's an alternative programme available (preferably free) which opens .doc etc. files

The reason for asking is that I've got about thirty various indexes and other files created in Works which I'll need to use in 10.

Books & Comics / Re: A hypothetical book about mythological beings

There's a few copies of "A Natural History of the Unnatural World" going cheap on e-bay - one listing Here.  It's written as a field journal for a crypto-zoological society, sort of a cross between National Geographic and the X-Files.  It proposes that many mythical creatures are real and just misunderstood by modern science.  I've had a copy for over twenty years and it's still interesting.

When I popped into HMV this morning they had the 20th Anniversary Edition of the original film on Blu-ray as one of the impulse buys (£4.99 with any purchase), so I picked it up when I bought the original Quatermass and the Pit.  If anyone wants the code to download a digital HD copy PM me (offer valid until 31/12/2019, only whilst stocks [one code] last).

Erik Bauersfeld, aged 93.  Who you ask...   Only the speaker of the most iconic and most quoted Sci-fi line ever - not a trap, honest

Yep, it's identical to the normal trade (The Pit, True Grot, Unjudicial Liaisons, Last Rites, Declaration of War and Bongo War) plus a covers gallery.

It's a pretty decent series, starts off as a normal boy-meets-robot-girl story before moving on to things like what does it mean to be sentient, what sort of rights should robots have, and should people be afraid of A.I.s.  There's probably some allegories about human rights and the like in there as well.

The art is very clean, not exactly minimalist but uncluttered.

Thanks Colin_YNWA, they're pretty good shelves but not quite perfect, the spacing holes for the shelves don't allow for three rows of full sized trades (as you can see though the middle shelf is ideal for smaller books), and they're quite deep so books can be pushed back if you're not careful (I use the boxes from the Star Trek Starship collection to keep books to the front, two rows of boxes are the perfect size).

Not sure about Mr Simonson's work of Warhammer, he's certainly not listed in the two books I've got.

Cheers guys.

Tordles: Hack/slash is a bit hit and miss, some stories are pretty good, others not so good and to be honest I've only got about half way through the third omnibus, I might give it another go soon.

Hawkmumbler:- The Wh40k books were published by Boom! back in around 2007/8 I picked them up from the clearance section in Forbidden Planet a few years ago so they're possibly out of print now.  The bigger Volume "Only War" has stories written by Dan Abnett and Ian Edginton whilst the other is actually the fifth volume in a series about the Ultramarines.

I'm glad someone rebooted this thread as I've just done a bit of reworking in my library.  A tall bookcase I had was starting to come away so I decided to buy some new, shorter, ones to replace it.  Rather than lug them all the way home in a taxi I used Argos' Hub-to-Home same day delivery system (little plug for my employer there).
