General / Guardian Film Quiz Question
« on: 22 July, 2004, 09:11:18 PM »
From a quiz on the Guardian Film site:

How did Sylvester Stallone's Judge Dredd horrify fans of the British comic 2000AD in its portrayal of the legendary lawman?
- It gave Dredd a first name: Graham
- It showed Dredd's face
- It was set in Megacity Two, not Megacity One
- It was set in the 18th century and made Dredd a periwigged dandy with a penchant for snuff and a lapdog named Moncrieff

Heh.  If only they'd chosen the last one...

Rather than let Byron's HUGE pics, bits of scanners, etc. put anyone off, here they are in all their glory.

Nice work, M. Virgo!

General / Lady Judges
« on: 06 May, 2004, 08:35:47 PM »
Okay, so I'm stuck in not-so-tropical Canada, still waiting for winter to end.  This means I have time to ponder life's great questions like "if Mr. T is so scared of flying, how did he get to Vietnam?"

Anyway, I've been reading a bunch of back Progs, and it got me wondering about the first appearance of Lady Judges.  Any advance on Prog 127? (Classic Bolland story, The Fog, with an un-named Fem-Judge.  I know she's a lady 'cos she's got lipstick and bumps, and she's got her badge on the wrong side).

Prior to this, I can't spot any Judges-with-bumps, at least in the Progs I have here.  I did notice a letter (Prog 124) demanding that Tharg print a story with a heroine rather than a hero - apparently "script robot Howard was supposed to write a story about a female judge but was unfortunately frightened by a dog on the way to the Command Module" (so we got the Doomsday Dogs instead) but a Judge Heroine was in the works.

A few progs later we got the first (?) named Judge (Harkness, In Death of a Judge) but she got a bit of a bum deal to say the least.  So I guess the first Lady Judge of a heroine persuasion would be ...Anderson.  Or am I wrong?

Anyway "Lady Judges, good or bad?"

And which fictional / non-fictional character would you like to see get a Lady Judge Makeover?

I vote for Judge Bridget Jones
(Tuesday.  My arse looks huge in this uniform; too many mock chocks v. v. bad. etc.)

General / Progs 1 and 2 with gifts

Hello all,

I just noticed the first 78 progs, including progs 1 and 2 with gifts, on e-bay, going cheap (?200-ish, with 2 days left).  I'd bid, but I'm skint.  Just thought I'd spread the word.

General / Megazine recommendations?

Hello all.

I've got a small gap in my Megazine collection (i.e. I've missed the last 9 years); any suggestions for hight points or 'must have' runs?  
Ebay here I come.
