Suggestions / Re: Collections I’d like to see
« on: 06 September, 2019, 07:18:08 pm »
Adding to this I would like to see the complete edition of "Armoured Gideon".

So would I. Add to that - Indigo Prime. I'd also like to see some of the more forgotten* strips reprinted. The one with the convicted killers riding Dinosaurs, for starters. There was also a story (was it a version of Mean Arena?) Where people where fighting it out in Booby-Trapped ring (or even an Arena). Put them in a book together and watch it quickly sell out of print. I'm not joking.

Cheers

When the collection ends I will be getting rid of my Nikolai Dante books (as a set) if anyone is interested in them. They will be sold for cost price if collected or plus postage if otherwise.

Grammar Nazi's and those who hold the truest of opinions rule the mainstream internet highway. Whereas this place, in my opinion, is a much more tolerant and dare I say it, Genial place!

I for one am very happy the grammar nazis don't hold sway here... or at least are more tolerant... do you get tolerant nazis?

Towards their ilk, probably. When it comes to anyone else though I would think not.

Cheers

Stats!

But wait, I can use the members list.


My memory may be faulty but I recall a significant period* when there were less than 160 visitors a day (Mostly Guests) but now we see upwards of 400 visitors a day. Again mostly guests but it at least shows a greater degree of interest, surely?

As for new members - If the Prog has attracted new, younger readers, maybe they're less inclined to post because their only experience of social media is the likes of Facebook and such. Grammar Nazi's and those who hold the truest of opinions rule the mainstream internet highway. Whereas this place, in my opinion, is a much more tolerant and dare I say it, Genial place!

Indigo Prime is as fantastic as ever.


Indeed! Writing and Artwork being equally outstanding; I can't get enough of this strip and I hope we see more in the future!

At the risk of invoking some sort of angry dancing - I'm not a fan of Sinister Dexter. When it first started I thought it was pretty good. One Long Walk later, I returned and it was still going. Except it had some Dimension-Hopping Ninjas', or something, followed by a reboot. No thanks!

Cheers

Bad Company ends perfectly with the escape from Ararat. Everything afterwards detracts from the impact of the original series ending, IMO.

While I enjoy modern ABC Warriors, mainly because of Clint's masterful artwork, I think the saga could of wrapped up nicely with their retirement at the end of Khronicals of Khaos.

Non 2000AD.

Transformers films should have ended with the 80's animated movie.

The Alien and Terminator films both peaked at number 2. Predator 2 is a great film, almost as good as the first.

The Conservative Party should have just stopped years ago.

Music / Re: What's everyone listening to...?

Drain by Rotten Sound. A rarity in music (for me) in the sense that I can't fault a single track on the album.

It's intense but leans more towards Heavy/Thrash metal rather than the Crust/Grind of previous releases. There's little in the way of surface noise* which has become synonymous with extreme/underground metal.

Excellent album and well worth a purchase!

Cheers

*Surface noise can be used to great effect but it can also drown out any semblance of a tune if not mixed properly. It's probably worth noting that said music effect was actually born from cheap production, back in the day, rather than the stylistic choice of modern artists/producers.

Sniper-Elite 4 and Wipe-Out Collection are currently free for PS4. Ends at the start of September.

Also on PS4 - Spiderman is on sale for £24.99. It is very good!

Prog / Prog 2143 - The End
« on: 03 August, 2019, 02:33:07 pm »
Cover by Tiernon Trevallion.

Thrill of the future - Slaine, The Web Of Weird.

Dredd continues to thrill and we have a bit of history concerning Judge Pin. Stunning artwork.

Indigo Prime gets a bit violent and has some lovely otherworld versions of cinematic monsters. Great series, hope it continues for many years to come!

Anderson is still going.

Thistlebone is all kinds of quality. Will be sad to see the end of it and judging by the way the story is going I'm guessing it will be a one and done kind of tale. The optimist in me is eagerly awaiting this series in a glorious hardcover featuring art prints.

Absalom... So long, farewell, Auf Wiedersehen, Goodbye! The old man gives one last flick of the V's and... no, I'll say no more. Just read it!

Outstanding Prog!

Cheers

I'd like to add Indigo Prime to my list of unlikely hardbacks. The complete IP, including Kek-W's recent runs.

Absalom, Dredd and Thistlebone are absolute quality.

In the Anderson strip we once again see Robot Judges. I wonder if this is just for continuity or whether it suggests that they are number enough, and planning, to seize control.

Cheers.

During my year long (now finished) 40th Birthday celebration I indulged myself in a couple of G1 Transformers.

I have Trypticon which I managed to snag for £50, brand new. He normally retails at around £150. He's a base and a massive Dinosaur and will be displayed as the latter.

The second wave of seekers (Jet planes) - Dirge, Ramjet and Thrust. They're re-releases of original versions, metal parts an' all. £45 quid odd as I recall.

The mighty Optimus Prime. He's almost as tall as Trypticon and his chest opens revealing the Matrix.

For the future I've been eyeing up a complete collection of Dinobots and Death's Head (Transformers Marvel version.

Cheers

Prog / Prog 2136 - Last Chance To Shine!
« on: 15 June, 2019, 01:05:01 pm »
Cover by Tiernen Trevallion.

Thrill of the future - Feral & Foe by Dan Abnett and Richard Elson.

Dredd - The Samaritan, part 1 starts well and even though Chinface only appears in one panel it is a sight to behold.

Scarlet Traces - Homefront, Part 10 has some excellent use of colour with it's various shades of purple against the stark black and greys of Space and the Moon respectively. Great writing, too. This series begs for a hardback collection.

Thistlebone - Part 2: A very talky episode (in a good way) giving a bit more background to the Cult. I like the slow burn aspect of this and the artwork is stunning! Again, Hardback please!

Absalom - Terminal Diagnosis, Book 2, Part 1 which weighs in at a meaty 10 pages. And why not? Action heavy and the loss of Clockwork Kojak sees the team fragmented and pretty beaten. Glad to see the return of the series and if it's to be the last I'm going to start banging on about Hardback collections again.

There is a letters page.

Great Prog!

Cheers

Survival Geeks. Happy to have 30 consecutive episodes of this.

Wait what??? Where was this said?

I think this is wishful thinking on Richard's part rather than a statement of fact.

I know there wasn't any response here but there was interest on Facebook. That being the case, I've set up a Facebook group to GMs to share content and discuss the game. All welcome! Thanks!

Megazine / Meg 406 - Flower Power.
« on: 17 March, 2019, 07:35:30 am »
Good cover featuring rampaging Tree-People, by Cliff Robinson and Dylan Teague.

Dredd - Planted,: Action heavy finale to this two-parter. There's also a small appearance by a small battalion. Great artwork on this.

Lawless - Ashes to Ashes: Grandma Lawson has a productive and informative chat detailing the true nature of the Zhind. Things seem to be taking another interesting turn. Maybe the Old Ma Lawson thing is a bit of a red herring.

Storm Warning - Green and Pleasant Land: More Tree-Hugging hippies and a trip around the Hanging Tree. Love the artwork on this series. Brit-Cit Lawmasters look like a bit of a handful when it comes to driving.

Blunt - Book 2: Good episode which reveals a bit more about what's actually going on. I could tell you all about the crystals but you'll just have to try and read my mind. This episode also features some excessive chinnage. Bruce forsythe and Jimmy Hill are mere pretenders to the throne.

Dark Judges - The Torture Garden: The crowning jewel of the Megazine! The survivors go for a run in the woods, with horrifying consquences. This series is excellent and once again we see how a new Dark Judge can be done right (see also: the glorious, Deadworld).

The Zhind seem to feature quite a bit across this Meg. Could it be building up to something more?

There are also four text pieces - A crowd funder Horror comic, GRYYYM. Interrogations: Dan Watters, comic writer. Casper Wijngaard, artist and a classic comics picece featuring Tammy and Jinty.

Great Meg!

Cheers
