Megazine / Judge Dredd Megazine 340
« on: 14 September, 2013, 05:47:35 pm »
Brilliant debut of new series Ordinary by Rob Williams and D'Israeli, as well as a three page feature about how it all came about. I am really interested in seeing how this story plays out. It is already the best new series since Lilly MacKenzie (whatever happened to that?).

Some good Henry Flint art too, on the new Dredd strip.

[Edited to set correct issue number—IP]

Prog / Prog 1848: Gods and Monsters!
« on: 31 August, 2013, 01:43:33 pm »
REALLY???!!! Has nobody bagged this thread yet? If they have, I can't find it... So here goes.

Mike McMahon Slaine cover, eye-catching, but I can't see why they didn't use Nick Percival's Slaine Star Scan which is astoundingly good.

Judge Dredd: Bender takes an unexpected turn. Still not sure how this is going to end. Good fun.

Age of the Wolf: A bit of a twist here too. If I had been paying more attention, I might have been able to predict where this is going, but I have no idea. But for the first time since this series began, I am looking forward to seeing what happens next.

Steve Bisley back on Slaine for the first time since 1990. Much better than that awful Prog 1800 cover., and 3ight pages! Good stuff.

A mediocre Past Imperfect.

ANd The Ten-Seconders: Godsend, still with Ben Willsher, is really moving along, but I don't want to spoil it for anyone. Two major characters die!

A pretty good prog this week.

Suggestions / Served Cold sequel

I have just been re-reading "Served Cold" by Al Ewing and John Higgins in progs 1718-1725, and really enjoyed it. And Al Ewing clearly intended to follow it up with a sequel some time. I would love to see it happen, but it's been two years. Sort it out Tharg!

Books & Comics / Requiem Vampire Knight volume 6
« on: 26 March, 2013, 03:20:23 pm »
Apologies if this has been asked elsewhere already, but does anyone know when -- or even if -- the next English book of Requiem is being published? (Preferably by Panini but otherwise any other version of where Panini left off.) Or has it been cancelled?

This video sets out rules for discussing spoilers.  ;)


General / "2000 AD" a marketing liability?
« on: 23 August, 2012, 08:49:42 pm »
(Apologies if anyone has already raised this in the last 48 hours but I have not been on the forum since Monday.)

Two days ago this web article pointed out that the latest trailer for the new Dredd film describes Dredd as being based on a comic, but omits to mention the comic's name:
http://www.forbes.com/sites/carolpinchefsky/2012/08/21/2000-ad-comic-book-is-snubbed-in-latest-dredd-3d-trailer/ "'2000 AD' Comic Book Is Snubbed in Latest 'Dredd 3D' Trailer"

Then in the Comments section somebody speculates that this could be because in 2012 a brand called "2000 AD" might be off-putting to people unacquainted with it.

Now I know that we have already been through all of this before, most notably around the Millenium, but with a new block-busting film about to take the world by storm (I hope), it seems to me that this problem has just become more urgent. A new Dredd film should be a massive marketing opportunity for the comic, and the name is increasingly tying our hands behind our back. It's all very well saying that people in Britain know what 2000 AD is, but Dredd 3D will be unleashed on a global market, and many people will see the 2000AD logo for the first time when they go to see the film.

Please can we not let this opportunity go to waste and change the comic's name before the sequel (if there is one) comes out?

Suggestions / Purgatory
« on: 23 March, 2012, 04:26:11 pm »
I think the story Inferno with Judge Grice is due to appear in the next Case File in May. It would be nice if at the same time the prequel, Purgatory, was released at the same time, if not as a normal graphic novel then as a Megazine supplement.

General / Judge Dredd Restricted Files vol. 4
« on: 17 January, 2012, 01:58:54 am »
Apologies if this has already been asked elsewhere, but does anyone know when this is due out?

General / Alan Moore Dredd story
« on: 29 October, 2011, 08:41:24 pm »
So according to Gary Spencer Millidge's biography "Storyteller," Alan Moore wrote a Judge Dredd story which was never published. Any chance of Rebellion digging it out and publishing it?

Other Reviews / Judge Dredd: Crusade gn - for the love of Grud why?
« on: 10 October, 2011, 11:56:35 am »
So according to Amazon there will be a Crusade graphic novel released in February 2012. WTF? This was one of the worst stories ever, who do they think will want it? And if you were a new reader and this was your first exposure to Dredd, would you ever buy another one?

I'm especially worried because by my calculations Crusade is due to appear in Case Files vol. 23 anyway, around 2013/2014, so does this mean that series is going to be discontinued?

Website and Forum / Search does not work
« on: 09 August, 2011, 09:02:56 pm »
Sorry if this has been covered already, but clicking on SEARCH just returns an empty screen with no search function.

Otherwise this version of the site is a massive improvement on its predecessors.

Help! / Requiem Vampire Knight volume 3

Has anyone heard when Panini are bringing out the third volume of Requiem please?

Suggestions / Update this website!
« on: 30 November, 2008, 10:28:29 pm »
Just had a look at the "History" page on this site and it said:

Imaginative, hard-hitting stories and eye-popping art have made 2000 AD essential reading for its legion of fiercely loyal fans for 25 years now.

No-one has looked at this in six years? Makes a bad impression on newcomers coming here for the first time, I suggest.

Books & Comics / Judge Dredd Casefiles 10
« on: 06 January, 2008, 09:06:27 pm »
Now that I've finished reading Casefiles volume 9, does anyone know yet when we can expect the next instalment?

(Apologies if this has already been asked on another thread.)
