Avoid any pointy hats though.

I'm not sure what difference having a balloon would make to the average customs official.

I don't know if unpainted or a bright green primer makes a difference either.

It's dicey.

There's someone who had to order it specially but they have some paperwork for a licence.

They don't seem to differentiate between replicas of real guns/airsoft and this kind of thing.

The impression I've been given is it would probably get turned back or destroyed at customs.

You're welcome - San Diego Comic Con is in a couple of weeks, maybe there'll be an update on various projects then.

The other official announcement was that the first thing being filmed at the studios and on location was 'School's Out'

Last mention I saw from end of May from Jason's twitter feed in response to a question about it.

"No official announcements to make, but loads of words being written."

Pretty good line-up but yeah Mike Dorey (I adore MACH 0) is a bit of a treat. Little pricely to attend but then will the comics folks be quiet and easy to chat to as folks flock to Jason Issacs and the like?

Definitely the quieter spot of the cons, although Carlos and John had a massive queue a few years ago. I might pop along myself on the Sunday to chat to Mike.

Maybe - it's one of those things that's tied to Rogue so closely, it's what he was created for - removing that, or the biochips in the reboot shifts things a bit.

I'm not sure if a Regene storyline set on Nu-Earth would have been much better though, to borrow Space Spinner's description, would readers get pissed off with a whole new set of side-quests to stretch out the resolution of the main task.

Same here.

Much as I like Ortiz, he didn't seem a good fit for Rogue.

I think it was mainly down to Rogue, at least during the Traitor General Arc, being suited to artists with a good handle on tech and vehicles.

It wasn't a bad idea to replace them with something more like bioweaponry and weird aliens to mix it up a bit, but Ortiz seemed more suited to creepy period or near future horror than far future war and the aliens were mostly of the Meltdown Man variety in the Horst run.

Sweet feckin Jesus, would ye ever just turn off your computers and go outside?

"I only said I dun gone outside so they wouldn't give me another jalfrezi enema!"

I really miss Monkey Dust the world could really do with the program right now!
Sadly due to Harry Thompsons death due to lung cancer (he wasn't even a smoker apparently, utterly tragic) it seems the most under rated animated comedy will remain in it's cult statues.

Also I suspect theres zero chance of seasons 2 and 3 getting a dvd release after 15 years.

Yeah, I'd read that he'd passed away-tragic!  :(
Crying shame too, that those two seasons are unlikely to be released! :'(
Caustic satire of the highest calibre!  :thumbsup:

Yeah, I worked on S3 - I never met Harry, but he was well regarded.

The follow-up was going to be a spin-off based on the Brummie Jihadis, but even without Harry's untimely death, the 2005 attacks would have made it impossible to make at that time.

There are a few of those BBC Choice/Three comedy programmes which have slipped through the cracks - don't think Monkey Dust or The Wrong Door are even available on iplayer.

There's a reason he gets a halo on Pete Well's defacing of any Southern Contingent photos.

Rat Pack, Major Eazy, Comrade Bronski I think are the major ones from IPC.

Guess it depends how well El Mestizo sold.

Carlos also did some early work for DC Thomson with Chained to his Sword and Strongbow, but Rebellion wouldn't have any control over that.

If John ever wanted to write his autobiography, maybe he could Nimoy it and call it 'I am not Drokk'

To be fair to Tharg, there’s a world of difference between a key creator, alongside Ezquerra’s family, saying “actually, they should continue this” versus continuing a strip created by two people who want nothing further to do with 2000 AD, and who would be against such a thing happening.

I think Matt Smith has acted honourably and respectfully on this issue. Ultimately, he could have said “well, Strontium Dog is very popular, and so we’re going to be doing new stories”, but he didn’t. Even now, the only new thing we’ve had has been a Regened semi-reboot episode, and the Stix story. Perhaps they were intended to test the water; I dunno. But it’s an unenviable position to be in, because whatever choice is made, it’ll annoy some people.

I believe Chris said the Stix story had Carlos' blessing.
