Dude, even if you never bought another prog in your life, you're still a squaxx till you die: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPw-3e_pzqU

When I got disillusioned with buying Marvel comics in the late 80s, I figured that anything good would be collected in  books that I could buy after the event. So even if you can't justify a weekly sub, continuing to hang around here must give you enough tips to pick up the best stories when they do get collected - current fave though is Brink.

I don't know what the public Libraries are like round you, but you can sometimes read loads of comic books (inc 2000ad stuff) for free. Manchester had a big spending splurge a few years ago, and the conic section was huge and diverse for a while - They have stopped buying them now because apparently GNs get stolen more than any other type of book. Sad.

Ah, thanks, fella.  I truly do love it here. The main library in Dublin does indeed have a fairly decent GN selection, with quite a bit of 2000ad stuff included.

I really need to read Brink, it would seem. I kind of thought it was another rambling, concept-heavy and storyline-lite Brass Sun type affair, but people round here seem to be suggesting otherwise. So that's my next port of call.

By the way, the brother tells me your sweatshirt was put in the post this morning - apparently late January is the new Christmas 😀

Film & TV / Re: PLEASANTLY SURPRISED BY THE NEW STAR TREK: DISCOVERY SERIES
« Last post by Jim_Campbell on 18 January, 2019, 11:56:32 pm »
Well, hey! Season Two is here and, as much I as enjoyed Season One, I have to say the first episode of Season Two was straight-up terrific. The grimdark is dialled waaay back, the production values are amazing and there’s an injection of positivity and optimism that’s very welcome.

I’ve honestly never been a Trekkie in any meaningful way, but this kind of feels like what I wanted Star Trek to be in my head when I was a kid. ‬Fantastic stuff.

Here it is: I'm not reading too much of the prog these days.  I ran out of cash a few years ago then realised I was a bit lost; and never found the time to catch up.  I buy batches of digi-progs sporadically but skip quite a bit, and am probably missing out.  Weird, after nearly 40 years of reading religiously.  Maybe it's the lack of a consistent Wagner Dredd (can't be helped, I know, and there are other fine Dredd writers but that continuity isn't as strong as it was). Or maybe I'm just getting old.

The honest-to-grud truth is, I keep coming here because I love you feckers.  I've been a boarder for about 18 years now and I still think this is the best little corner of the interweb, because you guys make it that way.

But I should probably start getting back into the prog.  What should I read from the last 4 or 5 years, and what should I not bother with?

Just read the rest of the Meg bar the floppy. Rather good, eh?

I really liked the article about upcoming talent for 2019. More of that please, Tharg. Also. Glad to hear there’s more Misty later in the year.

Very intrigued to see how next month’s Lawless turns out. The art was gorgeous, as always.

Also, I wish I could draw like Jake Lynch.

Too short to spend hours trawling through databases?  But ... but ... what else is there?

Yeah that’s not until 89/90 I think. Still a ways to go!

I know I could do homework via Barney if I really wanted to research it, but seriously, life's too short - just a brief mention of what the story is about would do.

Lovely.

Amongst all of Marvel, the FF are special and unique and I love 'em (one of my earliest memories is bugging my big brother to show me "rock man" in his comics before I could actually read them)

Does the Dave Gibbon pic go 3D if you have the glasses?

I am constantly amazed by the pictures on this thread - surprising images from top pros like PJ and amazing amateur talent. We are a lucky forum.
