Yup - it got bumped from April to September, because Sony execs are idiots. (Basically, they said that Daredevil was a largely unknown character and the film flopped, so they weren't going to take the same risk with Hellboy, ignoring the fact that DD flopped because it was rubbish and GDT's Blade was very successful despite being unknown as a comic.)

Mignola's been heavily involved with the movie, so the design and script should be pretty good.

Well, he died in the original cut, as evidences in the comic version of the movie Apparently, this scored low with test audiences, hence the change.

To be fair, though, I would love to see some more McKenzie-scripted Luke Kirby (so long as the art was by Ridgeway).

I thought "Tharg" was dispensing with the attacks? Maybe my memory is playing up.

Still, this one looks promising.

This product always shows up on eBay, with the seller claiming you can just get the stickers elsewhere!

I remember at the time the in-mag Future Shop selling the album and cards for ever-cheaper prices. I guess not too many took the opportunity to buy, because I remember a huge stack of the things being sold in Forbidden Planet, Cardiff for about three quid.

35ish per cent 800 x 600

Almost everyone else, 1024 x 768 or bigger.

:: Tharg makes good points about Valkyries too.

He does? I thought he basically said "I find it odd that people hate Valkyries because it has nudity - after all, we have extremes of violence in 2000 AD". My reading was that most people hated Valkyries because it was total bollocks, and really no better than Space Girls. I also note that I STILL haven't resubscribed, despite getting my letter to do this about four weeks ago, and this is largely due to things like Valkyries (and it didn't help that the first sub-standard Meg in ages arrived last week).

He was correct - the plural of "series" is "series". I'm a journo, by the way.

:: Whatever happened to the likes of Fervant and Lobe, Indigo
:: Prime, Revere, The Clown,Brigand Doom and Hewligans
:: Haircut? All masterpieces

Really? I thought The Clown was total shite, and Brigand Doom wasn't far behind.

Having rummaged through a Web site today that depicts what's in every issue of 2000 AD, I've come to the conclusion that a "good" Prog is when 3/5 stories are decent. It's when 2000 AD dips to the 2 or 1 good story level that things screw up. To be fair to Matt, this has happened very rarely since he's been around, so I'm going to stop complaining about shite like Valkyries, because there's at least enough readable stuff elsewhere in the Prog. (Even Sin/Dex is quite good at the moment - something I never thought I'd say!)

Oddly enough, I'd probably say Song of the Surfer, although many of Moore's collections (Twisted Times, Shocking Futures, Tomorrow Stories) come close.

Omar and Shenker (the ex-head) were hardly a barrel of laughs.

Did anyone notice a very telling line where he noticed the good-looking woman, but Rico didn't? Remember that the original Rico's main problem was women, so maybe Dolman has a slightly corrupt version of the Dredd/Fargo DNA, too.

:: Future sports stories... when was the last decent one?
:: Was there ever a decent one?

Chopper: Song of the Surfer.

One of the very few graphic novels I own where I also own the original progs. It's a classic story.

As far as I could see, it was called Harlem Heroes because they played aeroball in the prison, and, erm, that's it. Although it blatantly clashed with Dredd continuity, I thought the first run of the story began quite well; however, it soon became unreadable tosh. Quite frankly, I'm happy for it never to appear again.

On the other hand, I'd be happy to see a de-facto Harlem Heroes remake, perhaps set in the modern-day MC1, and focussing on the people more than the sport/games, which could provide a backdrop of sorts.

I remember seeing Clockwork Orange at the cinema when it was reissued. I'd never seen it before, and this is one of the very few films I've ever seen that I found disturbing and genuinely sickening. What made this even worse was the bunch of 14-year-old kids that sat in front of us, laughing at the thing as if it was some kind of comic book. I guess, in some way, that would have validated the whole point of the film for Kubrick - I found the experience unsettling and very sad.

I don't flinch when watching Reservoir Dogs - for me, that's a comic book. But there was something "real" about Clockwork Orange, and actually laughing at it was the last thing I'd ever think of.
