Nice one, Bou. Keep up the civil defence - it's a dirty job, but someone's gotta do it.

General / Battlefield Bulger, indeed
« on: 30 January, 2003, 06:23:54 pm »
Now, I know not many agree, but I liked Big Dave, me. Like I said before, it was doing the South Park sick humour thing before South Park did it itself, and before Preacher too.
That said, I can't help but feel glad that 'Battlefield Bulger' (mentioned in T.P.O.) never made it to print.  Jesus wept, now that would have been sick. I genuinely think a public outcry of Brass Eye-sized proportions would have occurred. Definitely, a lot more of the 'moral majority' would be disapprovingly aware of 2000ad, and the tabloids would have gone to town on it for weeks.  A Dublin magazine, for instance, printed a skit cartoon last year featuring the two killers from case in question, and was absolutely savaged by the press.  And that was about ten (?) years after the murder happened,and in a different country.

For everyone concerned, I think Alan McKenzie made the right decision.

General / The shite death of Balor
« on: 26 January, 2003, 04:15:42 am »
Sorry if this has been covered here already, but was anyone else deeply disappointed with Balor's death?
Even though he looked completely different in every story, he was a bloody good character (his episode with ragall in the fomorian vomiting pit was bleeding class), and then his death scene ends up being completely identical to that of Quagslime, the tax collector, except a bit harder to make out.  Quagslime's death was extremely powerful and exciting; the first sign of the Red Branch's revolt. Balor's was shite. Does Pat Mills think we'll forget the first time he tried it? Does he not know stories are reprinted? Well he may try and stop Sl?ine fan fiction. I know what he's up to.

Being ex-art college myself, I feel I am on Mecha-Bou's wavelength, maaan. Although in my case, it's my hair that's spikey and my boots that are swishy.

Actually, I just found this on the Monkey Heaven website:

'Hs?an Tsang (Tripitaka) actually lived and really did go to India in 629 A.D. to get Buddhist scriptures. '

So it was in India, after all!
I want to go out, but I'm broke.

'BTW, the end song, was it always sung in Chinese? I seem to recall I could understand the words when I watched it before...'

Yes, I seem to remember it being something like this:
'Munyana, munyana
They say it was in Innnn-dia
Munyana, Munyana
They say it was in India'

And having watched the repeat last night for the first time, it still sounds like that. I realise, of course, that it was not in India.

'...finn maccuil was the bloke who chronicled the whole irish history'

I'm not at all sure that's true, Bou. Although in one legend he's a normal-sized leader of the Fianna (a sort of warrior tribe) and in another he's a huge giant who rips up the Giant's Causeway so Scotch (yes, it's still Scotch) giants can't come across from over your direction. I think that's what happened, anyway. So maybe somewhere else he is a chronicler of history. Actually, he did have to learn off ten huge books of poetry to join the fianna, so he knew his shot, apparently.

Ah well, it was worth a shot.

No worries. All the same, maybe you could get him to scan it in, frame by frame, and e-mail them to me one at a time. If you give me his number, I can text him whenever I am finished each frame, then he can e-mail me the next one. It may take a while, but it will be well worth his while to have done such a good deed and scored brownie points with God.

sorry, I'm still a bit under the weather.

Cheers, but it's only the last 4 episodes I'm missing so I'll probably just try and track down the Complete Judge Dredd instead.

General / Apocalypse War - last few chapters
« on: 20 January, 2003, 09:53:14 pm »
I am missing the last few (not sure how many) chapters of the Apocalypse War, and have never read them. Anyone know if they were ever reprinted, and if so, where? My war was over as soon as Dredd took over the Sov ship and set a course for East Meg 1. I really, really want to see him blow it up.  Nothing like watching an entire mega-city die to warm the cockles of your heart.

Thanks for your kind words, folks. Still staying in and knocking back the lemsips like they were whiskey, but hopefully I'll be back on my feet before too long.

Alright, the holiday excuse was a bit lame, but it was a very sudden cheap flight jobby.
Here is my new excuse for actually not posting it by the 25th: I have come down with a big, bastard flu. I swear to Jayzus it's true. I don't really feel up to doing anything, but I had a job interview today which was like an interview on difficulty level 2 with a filthy headache and unsteady vision.

Sorry, that heading was meant to read 'my return AND shameful confession).

General / My return shameful confession

Hi. I have done very little posting on this board over the last month or so, but before I promised a fan strip by me posted on the internet by the 25th. Now sorry, folks, but while it is well underway, it will not be posted by the 25th. (I have been up to my eyeballs in other stuff, inc. Christmas, a holiday abroad, and now jobhunting).
What I will do, however, is post the first page up by the 25th and try and do the rest as quickly as I can. For what it's worth, it's looking alright so far, if I do say so myself.
