Other Reviews / Thirteenth Floor Vol. 2
« on: 21 October, 2020, 11:42:19 AM »
I have just completed the second volume and a quick summary is:
Volume one is the stronger of the titles.  The main factor is the max-spy thread which I ma not to keen on and secondly is that I always liked the fact that nobody had an idea that Max had a 13th floor. I ma still a big fan of Jose Ortiz art and it delivers every panel.

Overall, still this is some great classic British Comics. John Wagner and Alana Grant the masters of time and space. I will always be gratefully for their contribution to my youth.

Did anyone notice that Barney has been "hacked". You get directed to a site about tents.

General / Dredd show-runner or not
« on: 05 October, 2020, 02:48:58 PM »
This topic has been mentioned, talked about slightly being debated about but: do Dredd need a show-runner?  I personally do not mind the multiple writers contributing towards the strip. I like the different perspectives and different story-lines.

When Wagner was the writer off Dredd there was no need for someone to decide the direction of the strip, Wagner was in control and did his thing.  We all know that Wagner is not going to do Dredd forever. I cannot remember year that the prog did not have a Dredd strip written by Wagner. Whom can fill his boots?
So, the question show-runner or not and whom can take this forward?

General / Johnny Red Rebellion reprints

Do anyone know if Rebellion is planning to do Johnny Red reprints and if there is any plans of doing the Charley's War WWII stuff as well ?

Megazine / Meg 423 - Step into the City of the Future ...If You Dare
« on: 19 August, 2020, 05:04:32 AM »
A good  serviceable meg.

Dredd – This is a continuation of the Red Price story arc and this episode serves as more of setup to the next chapter of the arc. The Red Price storyline is one of my favourite storylines in the Dredd-verse the last few years. What makes this great as well is to have the same creative team working on it. Jake Lynch art has grown on me and he is now one off my favourite Dredd artist.

Black Museum – Another good one-shot with good art provided by Anna Morozova (her first work was on a Future Shock recently)

Devlin – Another interesting Devlin story and this one feels also more like a setup for what is too come next.

Lawless – As always this is the highlight of the meg. This one is a double episode. The episode jumps between the different characters as they are scheming and conniving creating plots within plots. Bring on the next series!!!

General / The Dredd (I am the Law) Mega Top 15 Tournament
« on: 05 August, 2020, 08:09:45 PM »
It is time for the next round of voting power. Who can stand against Dredd the mega man, the face of law and justice? Which of his mega epics will raise and be counted as the mega-of-mega tales? Now brace before you must do cube-time and tell us your top stories.

How does this work

1.   You vote for your top 15 Dredd mega-epics (this is all those Dredd stories that was around for the long haul, 7 and upwards)
2.   You can only make your choice from the list that is supplied below
3.   Points will be allocated accordingly to a strict but fair points structure. The structure is as follows:
1 = 20 points
2 = 16
3 = 13
4 = 12
5 = 11
6 = 10
7 = 9
8 = 8
9 = 7
10 = 6
11 = 5
12 = 4
13 = 3
14 = 2
15 = 1
4.   Remember democracy is still a crime, so citizens this is your only change to cast a vote. You can vote as many times as you want but ONLY your last vote will be deemed valid. Do not waste Justice Departments time or it is the cubes for you.
5.   Any citizen that even have a tough of breaking or not adhering to the rules will be cubed. Thus, be true and honest about your choice.

General / To Dredd or No, that is the question…..

I was thinking that with all our tournaments we having is that we are actually ignoring one of the main reasons why we still have a comic called 2000AD and that is Joe Dredd, I am the Law man.

So, I was thinking what about a tournament to celebrate the mega epics and long stories in the world of the toughest lawman around Judge Dredd.

Now the idea is to have a tournament where we choose our favourite epic or long-running story. The qualification criteria must be 4 or more episodes.  I will set up a list and only the stories in the list qualifies. The other criteria are only Dredd stories in the prog and no spin-offs (only Judge Dredd stories)

So, what do you think is it something that you guys would like be part of and if so do you agree on the qualification criteria? Last question a top 10 or 20 tournament?   

Here is the top 10 as voted by you:

The positions 6 to 10:

6. The Simping Detective
7. Angelic
8. American Reaper
9. Low Life
10. Storm Warning

The positions 3 to 5:
3. The Dark Judges - (Dominion/Torture Garden)
4. Cursed Earth Koburn
5. Devlin Waugh

In second place we have:


and the winner is by clear margin:


General / The Galaxy’s Greatest Top 20 Series - Tournament
« on: 10 July, 2020, 07:58:42 PM »
The voting booth is open you can cast your vote for your favourite thrills publish in the Galaxy’s Greatest comic (ever !!!!).

How does it work?

1. You select your top 20 series which appeared the prog since the legendary first issue published 26 February 1977 up until now (currently that will be prog 2190).

2. The only series not included is Judge Dredd. You can cast your vote for any Dredd-verse series, but our favourite lawman has an unfair advantage.

3. The shorts are all clubbed together so you do not vote for a single Future Shock or Terror Tale but for the whole shebang. The shorts published are: Future Shocks, Past Imperfect, Pulp Sci-Fi, Tales from Beyond Science, Tales of Telguuth, Terror Tales, Tharg’s Thrillers, Tharg's Dragon Tales, Time Twisters, Twisted Tales, Vector 13, What If ?.

4. The following series although carrying the same title will be split. For example, Strontium Dog will have all stories featuring Johnny Alpha be clubbed under Strontium Dog (Alpha) and the rest will be clubbed under Strontium Dog (Feral).  Here is the list:
a.   Harlem Heroes (Original) and Harlem Heroes (The Fleisher Years)
b.   Robo-Hunter (Sam) and Robo-Hunter (Samantha)
c.   Rogue Trooper (Friday) and Rogue Trooper (Rogue)
d.   Strontium Dog (Alpha) and Strontium Dog (Feral)

5. We again work with a point system much like the system employed for the “The Rebellion Years Top 10 Series” tournament (except now you have 20 votes).
1 = 25 points
2 = 22 points
3 = 19 points
4 = 17 points
5 = 16 points
6 = 15 points
7 = 14 points
8 = 13 points
9 = 12 points
10 = 11 points
11 = 10 points
12 = 9 points
13 = 8 points
14 = 7 points
15 = 6 points
16 = 5 points
17 = 4 points
18 = 3 points
19 = 2 points
20 = 1 point

6. You can vote as many times as you want but only the last vote counts.
7. I will publish a list of stories below but if I mist a series you can still vote for it the only rule here is that it must have been published in any prog.

How long will the tourney last?

You can cast your vote up until Sunday 2nd of August.

May the best series win

General / The Megazine Rebellion Years Top 10 Series - Tournament
« on: 01 July, 2020, 04:34:26 AM »
You can now vote for your favourite thrills in the Meg during the Rebellion era (and hopefully to be continued for many, many more years).

How does it work?

1.   You select your top 10 series during the Rebellion Years. This is from Meg 3.61 publish on 1 January 2000 up until Meg 421 publish on 16 June 2020.

2.   Judge Dredd is not included but the Dredd movie series is included. The movie version I see as an alternative and not part of the Dredd-verse canon.

3.   Any reprints and that includes the floppies are not included. Series like Tank Girl are included for example.

4.   We again work with the same point system that was employed for the “The Rebellion Years Top 10 Series” tournament.

1 = 25 points
2 = 18 points
3 = 15 points
4 = 12 points
5 = 10 points
6 = 8 points
7 = 6 points
8 = 4 points
9 = 2 points
10 = 1 point

5.   You can vote as many times as you want but only the last vote counts.

How long will the tourney last?

You can cast your vote up until Sunday 12th of July
