From the look of the panel - no wonder it was looking empty: the panel seems to be mainly made up of the past pitchers...
Better set your phaser to stun.

My excuse for not attending the pitchfest is...

I was having a pint with two message boarders I'd not met before, and we were talking about Lego, science fiction, and Edwardian costume dramas.

That beer tasted sweet, too. I just got too comfortable there to move. Ah well.
STRIKE !!!

i think it would be better as an 'every 2/3 years but a huge big event thing' than every year , people are more likely to make the effort if its only every other year

i am still amazed tooth are not there selling mugs, t-shirts, beanie hats etc.

There are people (well 'person') selling GNs/Beanies etc, though I think they do need to get a bit more organised with this, and ensure that the full range of 2000AD merchandise is available.  

Mongoose and Black Flame's stuff - last year, you could get both (I think), this year, not.  It was nice to get the Extreme a few days early though!  

It was also a shame there was no "coming up" talk - and no update on the Rogue Trooper game either.

The McCarthy interview was interesting - didnt look at all like I expected!  It was also great to see the original pages of the first Dredd from prog 2!

i think he really needs less complex with only 1 or 2 ideas in them, not 5 or 6. That way it'd be easier for him to get them across, not muddle them up, and most importantly they'd fit into a future shock.
