Ah, my hopes were up there.  I believe that if you put Wagner's name on his Dredd stories, nobody would know the difference.  I also think he's written some of the best Dredd stories ever, including Wagner ones.

Congrats to you, Funt. I'm still winning, though.

Though 7793 posts isn't that impressive when I realise I've been here for almost 20 years  :o :o

I had a few posts before that too though, as my former board self Jayzus B. Christ (with spaces).

Looking at the voting record, only one DUP vote was cast, and so I won’t be giving them that much credit. Had they all thrown their lot in with Labour, that would have been more impressive. I suppose at least they were smart enough to let the Tories own this one alone.

Fair point. It's easy to ride the public opinion bandwagon after the public have already spoken.

Things are fairly fecked up when Arlene Foster and Nigel Farage have the moral high ground on an issue.  You can't really accuse those two of virtue signalling; they have precious few virtues to signal.

"The Amazing" James Randi, aged 92. He offered a million quid to anyone who could prove they had any real psychic/paranormal powers under laboratory conditions. No one ever claimed it.

He also made a tit out of Uri Geller.

Aw, man. Sorry to hear that. I've seen him on YouTube exposing quite a few con artists who claim to be psychic, and also doing some fairly impressive tricks himself.

There were some really good text stories in the specials.  Most of the best ones were by John Smith - his Animal House was set in MC1 and the Cursed Earth and was excellent. He also did a really good Strontium Dogs text story, and his Rogue Trooper (Friday version) text story was pretty much the only good bit of new material in an otherwise Fleisher-heavy Rogue annual.

Now, here's where the use of 'virtue signalling' gets very problematic for me.  By framing Marcus Rashford as a publicity-hungry fake, you get to justify your decision not to feed hungry children, even as you eat at your tax-subsidised canteen and throw other tax subsidies at posh restaurants to keep them open during a pandemic.

Maybe Rashford is doing it for the likes. I don't know. But either way up, the result of it is that poor children get to eat. Or not, I suppose, in this case.

So Farage said something nice today.  Even a racist, hypocritical, snide, frog-faced stopped clock tells the right time twice a day.

I'm not quite sure about MacBrayne - I mean he's a uniformed judge and he's hard, but he's also a cheerful and easygoing whisky-sponge.  Brit Cit Judge Armour is far more Dredd-like, but to be fair he's a Wagner and Grant creation and never had his own story (I think).

Red Razors is probably a bit closer to the mark.

I've probably mentioned it elsewhere, but I'm becoming an uncle next year. It and other prioritites have made come to a decision to more or less go off grid from forums and such.

I'd just like to say thanks to everyone for a great time on this forum. It was nice visiting it now and then.

Bye!  :)

Nice to have you around, sir.  You're always welcome back.

Delighted to see Simon Harrison is so popular.  Definitely my first choice here too.  Bradley for when I was a sprog myself, the Dog (I loved his version, anyway) for when I was a teenager, and Revere for when I was a grown man.

Very tough call between Rian Hughes and Alex Ronald.  While I wasn't fussed on Alex's early prog stuff, his work these days is freaking amazing and he's up there with the best cover artists ever.  Rian, though, has a truly unique style - he hit the ground running from the very start with his effortlessly cool retro sci - fi style, bravely trying something completely different when everyone else was trying to be Bisley.  And, despite the wildly original art style, Dan Dare looked exactly like Dan Dare, and Sam Slade looked exactly like Sam Slade.

So, with some hesistation, Rian Hughes it is.

Very hard choice.  For the Raggedy Man, Summer Magic and The Dead Man, Ridgeway.  For Cradlegrave, Bagnell.  And now I'm just daydreaming about them swapping scripts, and I think it would have worked.
