Help! / Re: 2000ad a like Novels
« on: 29 July, 2004, 07:09:41 PM »
I read 'Consider Phlebas' by Iain M Banks a few years back, which is very 2000ad-like indeed. Also, 'The Stars my Destination' from the fifties by an author I forget (help me out here, people).

Now, I know my messages only go back a year, but I used to post with a different name (well, the same one, but with spaces) and a different e-mail address. So I think I've been here over two and a half years now... holy sheet, batman. I think Jimbob was around then (I remember having an arguement with him about Afghanistan), as were Oddboy, Logan and the Watcher. Anyone remember Death Monkey?

If it's any consolation, I've been sick for the last two days as well, also mainly due to weekend debauchery. So I've been sitting at home watching DVD's (only feeling SLIGHTLY guilty at the self-inflicted nature of the illness) and eating healthy stuff. I have to admit, I'm almost sorry I'm on the mend

"It was written by Chris McHale, which apparently may have been a pseudonym for - shock horror! - Mark Millar."
If so, I have to hand it to the man, he didn't do a bad horror story. Silo was good (apart from its way-too-obvious 'sampling' of films), as was 'The Amazing Dr. Doctor'. And D'Antiquis should have done more stuff in colour!

Sorry, bit of a tangent there, get back to Alan Moore any time you like, y'all!

'In the gritty nineties, it was exceptional not to be dark and disturbing.'

I know what you're saying, but as I said, it was hard to pull off being GENUINELY dark and disturbing. Most stuff in comics tried and failed. The one thing in 2000ad that ever truly put the, ahem, willies up me was that terror tale about the lunatic foretelling the coming of Lovecraft's dark gods. It was drawn by Dave d'Antiquis; anyone remember who wrote it?

'My only concern is that this opens up the characters for any old hack to join in. I've read the Action special and seen what can happen.'

Have to strongly disagree with you there - I loved the Action special. I thought it was one of the most original and inventive things 2000ad had done in a while when it came out. I was particularly impressed by Cursitor Doom and the Steel Claw, both genuinely dark and disturbing (not easy to pull off in comics).
Also have high hopes for Alan Moore and daughter.

I once saw a bloke hitting his girlfriend's head off the dashboard of his car. He was huge, the fucker, and I rang the cops too. Someone had already done the same though - I saw the oafish piece of shit being driven away in a squad car minutes later.
Does that make me a coward too? I don't know.

I haven't heard one yet. SO how do they work? Is there a narrator telling the story or is it all dialogue and sound effects? And does everyone sound like they should? The Playstation Dredd certainly does.

Thanks, all. I might have a look for said graphic novel in Forbidden Planet; I didn't realise it was still in print. Tharg reckons it was commissioned before E.T., but it was obviously written after it, as it mentions the film. Didn't think much of the Skizz sequels, but the first one is great: Moore doing what he does best, combining gritty urban drama with innovative sci-fi, natural dialogue and capturing the times perfectly.

I recently bought an old Best of 2000ad reprinting Skizz. But it only got up as far as he explained to the dodgy government bloke about the Sun-Snuffer device. It'll be years, no doubt, before I bother finding the next bits. So what happened in the end? Also, why is Skizz missing from my 2000ad memory (I'm sure I was reading it back then)? Apart from the dodgy sequels, that is.
