Forgive me Tharg for I have sinned.

It's been 7 years since my last prog, and in that time I've read so many titles from other publishers that I've lost count. Furthermore, I've not only enjoyed it, but I intend to keep doing it until something stops me, or I stop myself. In my defence, I thought the Dredd movie from 2012 was the best film of the year, and it gets better with every repeat viewing.

Can anyone share their experiences with Kickstarter - or any other crowdfunding sites ?

Thanks in advance.

That’s My Name.

Justice Department audio transcript. Extract of statement by Marlon Shakespeare / aka Chopper / aka The Midnight Surfer.

I just wanted everybody to know my name, that’s all. That’s all. That’s why I was a scrawler, and that’s why I was the ‘Midnight Surfer’, but you’ll never understand. Judges can’t understand anything like that, because you’re not human anymore. You’ll never understand being one nobody in a city full of them, trying not to stand out because you’ll just step on us as hard as you can. Even the Phantom understood that, and he was a robot. You stepped on us both, but you didn’t step on me hard enough or long enough to keep me down. That means I’ve beaten you, doesn’t it ? You can’t keep me down. You can’t break me, and you know it. You heard it out there tonight. They were all shouting my name ! You can lock me in those cubes for ten years or twenty, it won’t make any difference. I’ll still be King Surfer. Just like I was King Scrawler. Even if they don’t remember me when I come out, even if I never come out. I did it. I still did it. I took that tunnel backwards. Carrying Yamamoto ! I won Supersurf Seven ! I beat the Judges when they tried to stop me - they couldn’t stop me ! Now everybody knows my name ! Everybody knows Chopper !

Flippi Neck !

Loved Skizz. One of the things that made me a Moore fan. And it does seem to be the start of the more grown-up phase of the Tooth.

There's also the freely available Inkscape, which has a similar toolset to Illustrator. You can do a quick search for Illustrator alternatives if you want to find more.

Ahh, R.O.T.O.R. One of the best worst films ever.

There's been a petition to release it on DVD for a few years now.

I like it too.
The films mega blocks are like todays tower blocks on a gigantic scale. It makes sense that they'd just scale up a familiar design, and they probably had to get them up quickly and cheaply, so they stuck with what worked. The way they spaced them out works better for a film as well, instead of the density usually seen in the comics. We can see how they compare to the regular buildings.

It's a chilling vision that's for sure - sort of like Mega City crossed with the City of God.
Exactly.

Had a burst of inspiration, and knocked this one out. missus  :D

Mega City Idol

After the pre show show, the lights dimmed for a moment. Then Anton Dec appeared on stage flooded with multiple high beams. "This is it, folks !" He announced. "This is the final lineup ! One of these amazing contestants will be the next Mega City Idol !" And the crowd were at fever pitch. Over one hundred thousand in the studio, and an estimated billion watching the vid feeds. "Let's bring them out !" And they filed out for the final judgement.

First was Susan Sore. Middle aged and overweight, but with a comforting, motherly tone. Paul Weeds followed, head bowed, feet shuffling. His powerful baritone concealed. And prancing along behind them, little Britney Lance. Ten years old. Made of sugar and spice. Her grandmother died that week - or was it the week before - and that's what was inspiring her. They stood before the competition judges, who would make or break their dreams of fame, fortune and celebrity.

Myron Towell - the media tycoon who ran the event - was his usual self. "Only one of you will win today, because only one of you is worth it."

Pierce Moron waited for the crowds to quieten, "I think you're all amazing, and I look forward to interviewing you all on my new show next year. If you all follow my example, and remember to think of others and not just yourselves. I mean I'm not perfect, but I just can't stand all those celebs that never seem to do anything but talk about themselves."

Cheryl Gas - the android campaigning for android rights - was more thoughtful. Or so it seemed. "Youse all ahh lieeke thee bess theer is in mega city one. Youse ahhll should be prouwwed of youse sellfs."

And then Anton shushed everyone. "And there's a special, surprise judge today, folks." The silence was deafening. "Did you get it, folks ? A surprise JUDGE ? D'you get it ? Eh ?" A curtain slides to reveal the ultimate judge. Dredd himself. He strode out to the three finalists, standing in front of Paul Weeds first.

"Paul Weeds is not Paul Weeds. He's international assassin Killey mcMurder. wanted in multiple states for multiple murders and serious woundings." He gestured to the other judges now filing into the studio. "He's under arrest." To Susan Sore, "You're a classic black widow, Ms. Sore. You're under arrest for the murders of your eleven former husbands." And then he bent to look little Britney Lance in the eyes. "And you're the worst of the worst. Britney Lance - also known as the High Queen of the Kepler Union Colonies - you're under arrest for the genocide of two million of your subjects."

"But I didn't do anything wrong !" She cried. "My grandmother died this week ! And the week before !"

"And the week before that too, right ?" Dredd said, dragging her away. "You're still doing time."

"But, but, you can't do this to me. They were my subjects ! They were annoying me !"

And so ended the Mega City Idol sting operation.
