News about the system here, and you'll be able to order it here.

Give the Acclaim logo on the system's box, I'd assume the Dredd game included is the Mega Drive game based on the 1995 Stallone movie.

Given that AtGames's products have a somewhat dodgy reputation quality-wise, I think I'm more interested in how the Dredd game was licensed to AtGames than anything else.

Ok, so this is the ultimate pie-in-the-sky pipe dream that will likely never happen, but I still want to discuss it.

The rights to most pre-1970 IPC Media comics properties are shared by Time UK (owned by Time Inc) and DC Comics (owned by Warner Bros./Time Warner).  I doubt DC would want to sell their share in these properties, but Time isn't doing anything with them AFAIK, so maybe some could buy them out (if not Rebellion, maybe DC could buy out Time's share in these properties).

Likewise, the Dan Dare Corporation owns Dan Dare and most strips featured in The Eagle.  Again, I'd like Rebellion to buy them out.

Books & Comics / Who currently owns The Eagle?

It's briefly mentioned here that Egmont sold off The Eagle in the 1990s.

But I haven't been able to find out who owns the Eagle now.  Is it the Dan Dare Corporation?  Or someone else?

Books & Comics / Question about Marshal Law: Rites of Passage

I have a question.  Toxic #14-15 serialized the prologue from the Marshal Law: Fear and Loathing trade.  They renamed it "Rites of Passage" and added two new bookending pages.  Can anyone provide mention with info or scans on these new bookending pages?  They're not available elsewhere AFAIK.

Books & Comics / Ownership of Time UK's comic characters?

Okay, I wanted to post this in the thread concerning Rebellion's recent buyout of Fleetway's comic properties, but I couldn't reply to that thread, so I'm making this one.

Anyway, I want to talk about the comic book properties and characters that Time UK still has the rights to. 

This article from a while back makes its sounds like Time UK shares rights to its comic properties with DC Comics.

But what I haven't seen anyone here acknowledge is that two years ago, Time Warner (which still owns DC Comics) spun off Time Inc. (which presume includes Time UK) into its own separate company.

So I'm wondering how those rights were split.

My name's John Pannozzi, and I'm a big comic book fan, and I'm pleased to join the 2000 AD boards.
