Good point about splitting the paragraphs. I reckon there's quite a few people who'll take one look at that chunk of text and go straight to the next thread...

Plus, isn't Massimo Belardinelli dead?

Ahw, poor old overlooked Professor Brand. Mabye it's the 'rupert the bear' dress sense that does it...

For what it's worth I like him, but my favourite is a tie between Ravne and Demon Jenny. (Does it annoy anyone else that Hannah gets SO much attention in the stories, usually to the detriment of the others?)

I laughed, I cried, I nodded thoughtfully - Bear, you don't know how much I enjoyed your post. Admit I got a bit lost during your explanation, but loved the pic (especially the mullet).

Please tell me you drew it especially for this thread - it would make my sad little day.

I do like his gun, that's a funky design

Although some knock it, IMO John Wagner is an absolute master at the very blackest comedies. His Dredd is always funny and witty, but rarely camp, ludicrous or just plain dumb. The humour of his characters comes from brilliant observations of all our little idosyncracies and human flaws, made poignantly sad and sometimes beautifully funny - Cal was funny because he was Cal, not for the sake of being funny.

Like, for instance, the addition of a 'hilarious' talking cloak (although i admit Dennis the Menace did make me chuckle.)

But what does it say about the story that Walter the Softy managed to annihilate half the population of Dredd's world?

How the hell was THAT ever allowed to become continuity in the comic?!?!?

Heh heh, sorry Trouty, couldn't resist being facetious - but seriously, well done everyone who's quit/trying to, and stick with it! You know it'll be worth it in the long run.

Umm... does this mean I'm now excused being burnt to death?

Well done, Max. Your story was an inspiration. I've never smoked either, but your example was so impressive that I've decided to quit today as well!

Anyone seen J Carpenter's Prince of Darkness? Pretty bad effects in some places and some laughable bits of plot, but one of the most shit-scary and unsettling films i have EVER watched.

My brother met David Bellamy once. He dredged through a pond at his school and it was on the news.

Superman's costume is made from the blankets that he was wrapped in when he arrived on Earth. That's why they don't get damaged by bullets or flying at extreme speeds or the incredible heat at the Earth's core.

And yet his aunt was presumably able to use scissors and a needle on it when she first made the blankets into a costume...

on East Enders last week the mental boy, Ian's son whatever his name is, was explaining to the orange girl Stacey how he was a fan of comics and Preacher was great. Then she said something about him being a wierdo or something. He should have stabbed her right there and then.

I saw that! Think he mis-sold Preacher somewhat, but it's nice to think that there's still someone on the Eastenders staff who reads comics (Si Spencer, or is he long gone?).
We can add that to Minty's reading a Megazine and Grant Mitchell's 'Who do you think you are? Judge Dredd or something?'

I don't know if this counts, but it's annoyed me for a while now. One of the most awful mistakes I ever saw occured on the Paul O' Grady Show (yeah, I know, my own fault for watching such tripe).

It was halloween so he was all done up in vampire get-up and they were doing the usual 'layman's introduction to the supernatural' guff that appears at that time of year.
Some bloke, supposedly a 'vampire expert', came on to talk about the novel Dracula, and where Bram Stoker got his ideas from. He talked about Vlad Tepes for a while, telling us when and where he had lived and how he'd put his enemies on spikes and the like, when a sepia photograph of Bram Stoker, in typical Victorian clobber, was put up on the tv screen between them.

'Is that him?' slurred cheeky-chappy Paul. 'Is that Vlad the Impaler?'

'Yeah, that's him,' the so-called vampire expert replied, without blinking.

'Ooh my god, he's so scary!' Paul cried in mock-horror, 'you wouldn't want to meet him on a dark night, etc, etc', while the audience roared with laughter.

'No, you wouldn't', agreed the 'expert.' 'He was a nasty bloke.'

It went on for another good five minutes, not one person picking up on the fact that, given Vlad the Impaler died in the 15th century, it was highly unlikely they would have been able to unearth a photograph of him.
