Wasn't there also once a little corridor in Mega-City 1 where you could cross a line and suddenly leave MC1's jurisdiction? Also fairly silly. Why didn't all the perps know about it?

Best designer of all was Kev O'Neill. Termight is the maddest, most fooked-up place I have ever seen in science fiction. Respect also to Henry Flint for getting it spot on as well.

Thinking about it; I believe you are correct. Nice one, Tharg!

Hang on, 'The Art of Geomancy' was actually written by Alan Grant.

Sorry, I missed a few of the first Megazine Judgement Day episodes, so I'm not sure. If it's any help, Dekker was also in the first 'Muzak Killer' story as well.
As for Max Normal; the last Dredd I remember him appearing in was 'The Art of Geomancy' by Wagner and Burns (don't know the prog number). He was also in Middenface McNulty in the first few issues of the Megazine.

Aren't we all, my friend, aren't we all. I completely realise how much of a geek I'm being; but I've seen people point out website errors to Wake in the past, couldn't help but notice the Dekker one, bit back my shame and just went for it. I wouldn't mind, but in 'reality' I really fucking hate pedants. But now I've found my true self. Like, did you guys also notice how in issue 45, Megaman's hyperpowers suddenly seem to work outside the Sol Energy Zone? Like, with no explanation at all? Like, continuity, you guys? Like, hello-o?

Hi Wake, I'm not sure if it's important but I noticed a tiny error on the Character Profiles section of the website, specifically Judge Dekker's page. It says her last appearance was in the Judge Dredd story 'Bingo', whereas it was actually in Judgement Day, when she blew herself up taking loads of zombies with her.

'Head like a well-skelped arse' is used in Ireland, so I have a fair idea of what that's about.

Sweet holy  christ on toast! Well, I for one am converted.
Praise Bob and pass the pipe...

(Also, cheers for the Bogey Man Scottish dictionary. Not sure how, but I'm familiar with most of the terms, but there is a few gems there I've never hears before.)

'Just the same way as Jaysus B Christ, drinks Guiness, has about twenty children and likes whickey?'

One more thing, sorry:
Do people really say 'Jings' in Scotland? (I might as well bleed this Scotland thing dry while we're on the subject.  Don't you just hate a tourist? Especially one that isn't even in your country.)

'cos coupons get stamped.'
I see! I never thought of that, but it explains everything. Especially when it comes out of the mouth of someone like Frank Begbie.

And as for 'Helpmaboab':
'Someone said it was a replacement for Grud or Jeebus, so that's probably right.'
Seems reasonable enough.

Thanks for all your help, Scotch people! Oh, all right, then, 'Scots people'.

veI figured it meant 'Oh dear'; but what I was wondering was how it translated literally. Is it like 'Help me, Bob', as in the Irish 'Oh, Jayzus Christ above help me' (substituting the word 'Bob' for the impolite use of the Lord's name), or is it like 'Help my Bob', as in 'My son / brother / friend, Robert, will appreciate The Almighty's help with this particular conundrum'.

Also, why does Irvine Welsh call a face a 'coupon'? I usually suss most of his colloquialisms fairly quickly, but is this rhyming slang or what?

I will be more than happy, by the way, to explain any Irish colloquialisms or quirks of language in return for your collective Scottish kindness in my hour of need.

What does 'Helpmaboab' mean? The Middenface lad  has said it loads of times, as have loads of other Scots characters in loads of different comics, but I've never heard it spoken aloud. It seems to translate literally as 'Help my Robert'. Also, is the Scunner Campbell still knocking about the Highlands these days?

'You cannot "follow" a star'.
I was going to make a shit joke about stalking Mavis from Coronation Street for three months, but then I thought of a good point intead: What about sailors in the old days? They followed stars.
'All I ask is a tall ship,
And a star to steer her by'.
