Prog / Re: Prog 1822 - The Sound Of The Underground

So: The Sovs are being relocated to Mega-City Two (for extra clarity: that's the Mega-City Two on the west coast of North America, not some Sov-based city that happens to use the same name). You'd have to ask the artist why there are Sov Judges present, why there's a pic of the Sov ambassador on the side of the building, and why some of the background buildings look a bit "Sovvy" - as you'll see from above, none of those are in the script. The Sov-looking typeface on the "Welcome to Mega-City Two" sign adds to the confusion (as does its position on the gate - it does look like it's on the wrong side!).

Sometimes I get to see the artwork before it's published (for example: PJ Holden sends me the pages as he completes each one - and just wait until you see the magnificent job he's doing on "The Forsaken"!), and if I'd seen Mr. Currie's work in advance I would have asked for that last panel to be changed. But I didn't see the artwork until my copy of the prog arrived yesterday morning, and obviously it was far too late then!

Hope that clears up some of the confusion!

Perfectly, thanks! I had wondered if it was an art goof- as a relocation to MC2 makes sense with the accompanying dialogue- but the Sov judges and blocks threw me off.

I'm amazed that you're artist doesn't actually work 'with' you, though. I don't think I've ever worked on anything that the writer hasn't seen as I've been doing it. How can it not end in tears?!?

Somebody will have to explain the Dredd ending to me. Sorry. I'm sure it's not very complicated, but it obviously involves something about Mega City 2 from my 2000ad wilderness years. A quick Google only left me more confused!

Bit of help?

Having actually read the story (which was very good, I might add), reading this thread is funny and neck-punchingly irritating in equal measure.

Given that the readership of 2000ad is vanishingly small- I will submit that, even more than usual, any publicity is good publicity.

People are free to disagree, of course. I will feel free to shake my head and walk off as they do so...

Liked the cover. If you'll forgive the ego, I can imagine that I'd laid it out and Boo Cook had drawn it up. Nice.

I liked it enough to drag myself here and say so. Generally speaking, I dislike crossovers- mainly because I feel I'm being forced to spend money to stay in the loop- but this was a welcome surprise.

Great stuff.

Probably the only thread on the board that it's still a pleasure for me to wade through. Some nice work on show, as usual.

What has happened to my favourite thread?


Latest on Disconnected Press: well, we made it to print deadline and everything is now in the hands of Stuart at UK Comics. The last week before deadline was nerve-wracking as all hell....

Still, the latest news (and some teasers) is on the website: www.disconnectedpress.co.uk. This includes news of our cover artist..... (who some of you love and some of you can't help but have arguments with)...

Roll on Bristol for the Big Launch!!

The one year I won't be going to Bristol!

Good luck with it, guys!

The third one though... why do these things assume that just because someone is suddenly stronger that means they would apply more force for the same mundane actions?

because they don't know yet, especially when it happens overnight?

That doesn't really hold up. Just because you suddenly have super strength doesn't mean you'd automatically apply more pressure when you turn on the tap (or whatever), or at least not so much as to wreck it. Unless you're in the habit of using excessive force to do those things all the time.

Come to think of it, you might go a good while without really being aware at all until your limits are tested. Not that I'm saying a film should follow that route, a bit of poetic licence is required.

Have you ever gone to pick something up that you think is heavier than it actually is? Same principle. After heaving our toddler around, the first time I picked up the new baby, I nearly threw him through the roof. See also: Empty egg boxes.

I got two progs this week- mine and one for J Lloyd Jones, who lives five miles away. In an unusual act of kindness, I drove round to his house and delivered it for him.

I await my KTT.

Ah, internetz, how I love you. If I'd been responsible for either of the previous two posts, I would've been told to fuck off and been reported to a mod by now...

And- just to put all of your problems (and mine) into perspective:


It's quite upsetting- so give it a miss if you're already feeling miserable.

The truck driver that almost killed me and succeeded in destroying my car is saying that I pulled out into his lane instead of the other way around, so the insurance company wants me to settle for half the payout and accept that my no claims will be affected

ffffuuuuck >:(

Ah... My favourite insurance scam (the insurance company being the scam artist, of course).  You both get hammered and both lose your no claims bonus.  I wonder who benefits from this? 

When I first started driving, this practice seemed to be incredibly rare, but these days it seems to happen to everyone I know that is involved in a collision.
