What they said. I don't think anyone will object to a proper Dress art droid posting (and Tuesday is a free-for-all anyway).

It's no concern of ours what he chooses to wear...

Oh, bloody hell  :-[

Also, it’s good to know burned bridges can be repaired. I hope perhaps one day that might be the case with John Smith.

okay, I must have missed something here.  What happened?

Not entirely sure but he's a fairly regular Facebook poster.  I miss his 2000ad work; he's one of the best script droids we've had.

Hilarious!

I love Martyn Turner; one of the best political cartoonists I've seen, home-grown or otherwise.

Nice to see some evangelicals crowbarring their nose out of Trump's privy parts for once:

Yep, a friend of mine is just back from Sidney.  It's a mess.

I've just found this on Google.  I see what they've done.

Nice one, Bolt! I'm pleased to see I was wrong in my prediction.  Merry Christmas to Norts and Southers all!

h I do own the double-casette audiobook of the novelisation of the movie

I'm sorry.

I reckon you were right in the first place. Day-stick is pretty obscure, and I suspect an independently arrived-at pun.

It did cross my mind. You, and previous me, are probably right.

I remember there was one that said "Save a tree, eat a beaver". I thought it was hilarious. It's only now occurred to me what it meant.

And me! I wonder how much innuendo passed me by in more innocent times.  The double entendres in old progs stick out like a sore, er,  thumb these days.

I didn't think it dragged! And I don't normally read the fan stories  (probably should though, I'm most likely missing a few gems).  Although you did confuse a Happy-Stick for a daystick at one point  ;)

Ah yeah, I kind of guessed that.  Same reason poor old Theon Greyjoy got the name.


EDIT:  For my own part, I've just realised that a daystick  (or day-stick) was the real name given to a police baton uses for daytime hours.  I'd always assumed it was a jokey Wagner / Grant play on the word 'nightstick'.

Why the zombies in Defoe are called reeks or stenches...

Because they reek? Or am I missing something?

Really enjoyed your 'Wulf's-eye view' story; the talking heads work for me! And the idea of mutating tachyons blasting backwards through time is genius (Wagner and Grant missed a trick there), as is your brave effort to knit the Dredd / Stront timelines together - never an easy task.  Looking forward to seeing the rest.

Really enjoying the Rogue strip too - the spirit of the Christmas armistice is alive and well. Things are all going to go horribly wrong, aren't they...?

Conrad - now I really want to watch the first Dredd film again.  But ONLY with your commentary.

I wonder if anyone's ever had tattoos of the biotronic stickers.
