Sonic the Comic, that was the thing. Nine years isn't bad, surely.

I haven't seen much of Warrior,but one of my favourite British comics was The Bogie Man,and I wish I could find my issues of it.

I used to like A1 too,some great material,but some were better than others.

Luther Arkwright as well,that goes without saying.Fantastic stuff.

No; you're not alone.

I had a very similar experience: I read widely but erratically original marvel imports, British marvel reprints, Commando and most of the boy's own from the mid seventies. I espcially remember Marvel Superheroes with the Silver Surfer, which set me up for the Fantasy Masterpieces a few years later - magnificent stuff. I became a more regular reader of Action, Battle, and later Starblazer but 2000AD and Starlord arrived were the mainstay.

Dear jdmobius,

Eric bradbury and Ian Gibson is not the same artist. One is dead, one is alive.

Ian Gibson's noms de plume include Q.Twerk Joe king and Emberton.

My all time fave has got to be Warrior.
I liked most of the strips, especially Marvelman, Bojeffries, Warpsmiths, Big Ben and V, but Laser Eraser & Pressbutton was definitely my favourite out of the lot. This also introduced us to the rotund, drug peddling, sexual deviant with a tentacle fetish Zirk.

Pressbutton is one strip that I'd love to be reprinted it the Beyond 2000 section of the Meg, and assuming Steve still owns the rights, I'm guessing that it wouldn't be such a hard thing to sort out.

OK in no particular order - "The Country Bumpkins" from "Whizzer and Chips", "Billys Boots" from "Tiger" (why did he always lose them before every crucial Cup game ??), "Dexter something?" from "Roy Of The Rovers" about a really hard defender, those b&w Spidey reprints, "Captain Britain Weekly" (and "The Daredevils"), Wagners "Darkies Mob" and also "Panzer G-Man" in "Battle", the superb "V For Vendetta", "Marshal Law" and that weird one about the homicidal train driver in "Toxic", "Kal Jerico" and Pat Mills "Redeemer" for GW, "Classwar" for ComX.....

Oh God no! I love the Marvel Weeklies. I have a huge collection of 'em. I just didn't list them as I was concentrating on British strips, rather than UK comics that reprinted stuff from abroad. Even now the UK Marvel titles are excellently produced and give some of the best value in comics. I would also like to add Vulcan to my list, which reprinted classic UK stuff.

Deadline was the only one I ever got into. Although I may have read and possibly enjoyed the one issue of Crisis I ever bought, because I may possibly have been about 13 and there is a small chance that I found a Milo Manara porno reprint in it.
What? Sorry, no, no, I mean I liked it because of its grim political satire.
Actually, Crisis was, in retrospect, patronising tripe, although I suppose PC was hip in the 80s.

I don't think people like Moore overlooked the Gulags.  The Soviet Union was a totalitarian state, and it wouldn't be too extreme to call it facsist.  The warnings of right wing totalitarianism were simply because that is how Britain (or America) could arrive at this type of state.  

After all, someone could very well be detailed to scan this board for subversives.

Yeah, we've lost the right to privacy over e-mails.  The only thing they can't do now, is listen to your thoughts and watch your dreasm like in Nemesis.  When they can they will and what's worse is they'll say they do it for our own safety.

When V came out, some of the things that seemed unlikely, those street-top cameras for instance became a reality.  And Alan Moore did say that all of the events in V happen after normal civilisation broke down and someone else took over.  I can't see that happening by a left wing communist idiology, but something which plays to the peoples fears like in V is more likely.

 Sorry to interupt paranoid ramblings but bollocks. I know a thing or two about CCTV, and the Data Protection act and you have a lot more to worry about from corporations than you do from "Them". The Government run all the security/police services as a giant beuracracy and even such activities as tracking people using the net for child pornography need a huge amount of paperwork to circumvent the Data Protection act. The Police and Criminal Evidence act and the Human Rights act greatly reduce any agencies powers to spy on you and to be honest as one of "the forces of oppresion" we really don't care what your up to as we hardly have the man power available to perform even routine policing.
However, corporations aren't covered by those two pieces of legislation and can do what the hell they want, and neither our government nor the EU are willing to upset them by tying their hands.
So repeat after me "No one is spying on me, their all filling in forms."
Unlike the equivalent in former soviet nations, but thats by the by.

Action + Battle Picture Weekly + Spiderman Comics Weekly + Mighty World Of Marvel + Captain Britain + Warlord + Bullet = "Happy Days" (and there's lots more where they came from!)

Great Stuff!

 Ooh get me, i'm all fighty. Last message more aggressive then I mean it to, just get fed up of the left and the right misrepresenting whats actually going on to score points against each other and scare the public into believing what ever they want. I have first hand experience of this having seen the home office blatantly lie over something I was involved in for political capital. Grrrr.
