Well I didn't realise 'Drokk!' originated in Dan Dare, or that it was in Prog 1, so you're off to a good start! Any Betelgeusian expressions other than Galactic Groats?

Good point - there's no Borag Thungg, but he does sign off with a Splundig Vur Thrigg!

Prog 1 - more a commentary than a review - I'm sure there's nothing in there that you lot don't already know

Not got much on this weekend, weather lately has got a bit cold, so I'm going to start today.

Still not entirely sure where my Star Lords are, but I've got almost a year's worth of progs, the summer supercomic and the first annuals lined up.
I’m setting myself a few rules:

  •     read each issue, cover-to-cover, in the order that they were released (including annuals, specials and sibling titles)
  •     no distractions – with the exception of classical music or music with lyrics in a language I don’t understand
  •     once I’ve finished each prog I can take to the internet, updating the blog, this thread and the Wiki
  •     I’ll decide what to do about the books when I get a little nearer to them – don’t particularly want to break up the week-to-week schedule with 300-page novels, but I do still want to include them
  •     other than holidays where I’m away from home, I shall keep up with the original weekly publishing schedule (so at an absolute minimum I’ll always read one prog a week, not including the latest releases) – obviously to get through the whole lot in less than thirty-eight years I’ll need to read considerably faster than that, but this is a minimum to set myself, even when life gets in the way
That’s about it – time to make myself a coffee and get started – I won’t go into the garden to play with the space spinner though.  Apart from anything else, I don’t think the cat would play along (if only I had a dog!)

Frozen?  Does it follow on directly from Enceladus: Old Life then?  What's the name of the Dredd story?

Untitled strip from 2000 AD Summer Special 1977

The Curse of Mytax strip from 2000 AD Annual 1978

Visco strip from 2000 AD Sci-Fi Special 1978

Untitled strip from Dan Dare Annual 1979

Hopefully without any spot colour!

Somewhere inbetween, Judge Giant (snr)?

If only they'd stuck with the original idea of Dredd himself being black...

(as the columnist specified writers) Alan Mitchell was the first person to jump to mind for me, though while he co-wrote Third World War and an ABC Warriors novel, he didn't work directly on Tooth.

(edit) referring to the following paragraph, obviously:
To my knowledge, no story in the magazine’s thirty-eight years of publication has been scripted by an author of Asian and/or Latino descent, or by a person of color at all.

Women Write About Comics: Racism in 2000AD

You'd think Tharg'd be more racially sensitive, being a green-skin on Earth, and all (be thankful I didn't resurrect an old thread).

Food (from the Swipe File thread).

It's weird, I can still smell the hospital and the "food" and have to try to block it from my mind to get through the day sort of an nhs ptsd?!

"Ward psychosis" is starting to be recognised as a thing, so, yes, quite possibly.


Tell me about it - my brush with death was slightly different, but did result in my spending a few months in two hospitals, and then a few more months under a slightly better standard of care.   At the first hospital there was a 'gentleman' who kept me awake for a few nights running with his racist, sexist, everything else-ist outcries.  During the days I was subjected to the worst that outsourced re-heated boiled-of-all-nutrients so-called food could offer.  You really have to wonder just how much money is being spent on hospital-acquired illnesses as a direct result of lack of quality sleep and parcity of good food.

My recommendation to anyone spending time in an NHS hospital is to opt for the 'ethnic' menus - i.e. curries and the like.  It won't be fantastic, but orders of magnitude better than the bland English fare.

Anyway, rant over - glad you're out of the woods, and are there any after-effects of your brush with Sidney De'ath?

What Colin said.

Mind Wars was a great Starlord series.

Mind Wars was definitely my favourite Starlord series which didn't have a life outside its bi-weekly pages (apart from a forgettable prologue in one of the annuals, if memory serves?)
