The ABC Warriors story could be the Alan Moore / Steve Dillon tale: Red Planet Blues from 2005. I thought it had been reprinted in B/W, but can't find it anywhere. So I must be mistaken.

Its not that one ( i think) the ABC Warriors story was from an annual in the mid to late 80's it had people/creatures hiding/living in what looked like an alien corn field (long thick spear looking growth) coming out of the ground

again my memory is lacking its been a long time i also remember a future shocks/tharg story about a man who lived in a futuristic house that wouldnt let him leave i believe he died of hunger with the home still telling him how much she loved him

And............did they ever reprint these storys into the graphic novels currently on sale

Whatever one's views on explicit comics and age-appropriate content, can we all agree that that kid was a doofus, and also the son of a doofus?

That's putting it mildly

That Yummy Fur guy was a bit wierd and creepy.

Yes he was its funny that they picked nutters to use in the report

"A comic book movie, like the Punisher, and Batman. People will hit this movie for its story, acting etc, and I beg to differ on their opinion, this movie is a comic book movie and is meant not to be Terms of endearment, instead its a fantasy flick. Stallone know fantasy or comic book films with his creation of Rambo, and does a excellent Judge Dredge. This movie has a strong cast, of many recognizable faces who create strong performances. The story is along the lines of comic book, backed up with great special effects. I went to the theater expecting this, and give this one a thumbs up."

Im just wondering if we were watching the same film..............................

I remember The Longbow Hunters in Green Arrow was a big deal back then, and drew a lot of criticism for the writer/artist (Mike Grell) both from fans and from professionals within the industry. But the way the censorship lobby and other media attack comics always comes down to the same thing, which is that none of them understand comics, and they think comics are a special case that shouldn't be allowed to tackle the same adult themes that prose fiction, films and TV do, because comics are 'for kids'. Exactly the same kind of misunderstanding led to condemnation of South Park because cartoons are 'for kids' and therefore shouldn't use swearing or tackle themes of a violent or sexual nature, and should therefore not be made for an intended audience of adults. South Park has, of course, thrived on condemnation.

Unfortunatly misunderstanding something more often than not lead's to the PC brigade jumping on the band wagon for 5 minutes of fame.
Some times i suspect these people actually sit waiting to find something out of nothing just so they can complain right up to the point of complaining about blackboards and ba ba black sheep amongst many others, and that's before you get to the nonsense about what you can call the colour of somebodys skin on the off chance your some mad nazi killing people because you played to much grand theft auto whilst listening to black sabbath and reading comic's

And yet if you watch the simpsons whilst looking like a kids programme, there are some adult theme's and things that really only an adult would get............... clearly aimed at both markets

LOL when i was that age things like that wouldnt have bothered me, infact quite the opposite if i'd wanted to read comics with care bear type stories thats what i would have bought.

maybe thats just me...... but watching this clip really has made me laugh i can remember when it was music and books that were the problem in more recent years video game's people will pick fault with anything.

Books & Comics / Marvel,DC.Image and 2000ad were it all started
« on: 18 June, 2009, 02:30:32 PM »
Well i remember the 80's very well despite the fact i wasnt that old my first flirtaion with comic's was the dandy,beano and teh big comic around about 1985 i would have been 8 and recieved my first 2000ad publication it was an annual and around the same time some one started buying me arak son of thunder by DC

At this stage i still wasnt heavily into comics just flirting but by 86/87 my parents had a a lodger come to live with us a teacher very well educated and into 2000ad he would buy the magazine and then pass them onto me when he was finished fuelling my interest in comics.....eventually he moved on and i stopped reading 2000ad and comics in general till maybe 1990/01 were i would discover Marvel and DC on a new level many the big titles that people associate with the companys but by 1993 i had found most of the comics by them lacking and started collection earler editions from the 80's i have found i like the earlier comics and there story lines.

Anyway by 93 i had dscovered a new company (image) and the multiple studio's it housed i followed most of there big titles till 97/98 and sort of moved away from comics altogther i married my wife in 2005 though we had lived togther previous to that and he had always been a big factor in trying to pick up collecting comics again and up until now i had left it on the back burner but recently i have discovered my passion once again for comics and will now comtinue collecting old and new.

Just some short info to were it all started for me i have boxes full of comics from all of these companys ive been missing out!

Were did it all start for you?
