Off Topic / Re: Day of Chaos 2: a.Covid-19 thread.

In positive news, Scotland has now recorded zero Covid deaths for the fourth day in a row. Oddly, some commentators are using this to criticise the Scottish Government- "Why haven't you opened up as fast as England, then?". A transparently daft stance.

Great to hear the first part; not so much the second, to which the answer is obviously 'so that we could have four days of no deaths in a row'.

So the orange clown has just retweeted a video showing one of his supporters clearly shouting 'white power'. Seriously, the man is a waste of oxygen.

Also, I note 'Sleepy Joe' has become 'Corrupt Joe'.

BTW the second yt video is full 1080p so that is the one to watch.

More concept art & stills -

Fully aware that I am replying to my own posts (slow Sat morning in Kiwilandia) - didn't there used to an edit button?

Lovely stuff - never even heard of this before.  Are we quite sure about the choice of soundtrack for the second one, though?

Moore. How do you like it, how do you like it.

(That's not a vote; I've already voted. I just couldn't resist.)

Wearing a mask? What kind of American is he?

I see Texas's 'We're Texans - we got this' approach has been about as successful as you would expect.  The virus doesn't give a shit where you're from, people.

And this is one of the reasons why I believe Bish-Op is one of the greatest editors 2000ad and the Megazine has ever seen. I honestly believe that without his sheer love of the property, Matt Smith would not have been given his time to shine.

I'm not disputing that - Bish-Op was the Tharg who turned the prog round, and it's been on a roll ever since. 

I was only talking about the funny smart-arse Tharg letter answers really, which I still kind of miss in the prog - the Damage Report still provides the same kind of laughs though.

Ian's stuff is outstanding, but Alan's was era-defining.

Moore it is.

I'm debating whether I should go back to my awful Stallone Dredd one.

It's how we all think of you now. Defiant, barely intelligible and absolutely ripped on steroids.

My entire biography in a sentence  :lol:

This was around the time I started buying the Megazine regularly, finally being able to afford it (kind of - my student account was ridiculously far into the red).  Though it didn't seem to have the energy of the first couple of years, it kept me riveted, and John Wagner was back writing the Dredds. 
I did prefer Tharg's sarky, bombastic editorial style to Bish-OP's self-confessedly po-faced one - I remember the latter scolding a reader for 'mixing his metaphors, to unsavoury effect' - but there were more than enough stories to keep my interest (even if the title page of Cal Hab justice said for the best part of the year that Schiellion's son must 'die to dave the future Scotland).  It was, I seem to remember, a better read than the prog of the time.

So far, the whole series reminds me of City of the Damned, but I think that was Williams aim from the beginning.

Ah-hah, I completely missed that aspect. As a fan of CoD, this perspective may help me enjoy EoD more.  So far it all feels... perfunctory: here's Brit-Cit, a megacity, we'll just drop in and wander about. Is there no-one running the place? 

I'm going to avoid the obvious political joke and say that I agree with you; it did seem a bit curious that Brit Cit was being presented as some kind of ghost town.  Kind of like Manhattan when Halo Jones got out of the Hoop first.  But Rob William's past mentions of Brit Cit seem to echo Dave Stone's Amsterdam-like vision of the place, which is fine by me.

Well, this has all gone quite 2016 so far, with the less established choice getting an unexpected surge. The main difference, of course, is that Dan is a great writer, rather than a tiny-handed wannabe dictator or a decision to impose sanctions on your own country.

I voted Pat but I get the impression he wouldn't be at all happy to see how well Dan is doing.

I'm debating whether I should go back to my awful Stallone Dredd one.  Think I was only trying to find something worse than Godpleton's Chronos Carnival one at the time.
