OK, so nobody's really sure who owns Marvel/Miracleman and V's been reprinted by DC...

But what about Axel Pressbutton? BoJeffries? Warpsmith? Big Ben? Other stuff? Doesn't Dez Skinn still own the copyright for those?

And what about stuff from Deadline? Like Johnny Nemo? Early Tank Girl? Budgie Boy? or (my all time favourite) Planet Swerve?

Or... how about stuff from Milligan and McCarthy's Strange Days, like Freakwave, or Paradax?

Or they could reprint the Last American...

There are tons of cool comics by British creators - most of whom have worked for 2000AD, which just haven't been seen for years and years and years...

I believe a certain Mr Flint is also championing the Paradax cause!

The Last American would be great to see again.

One of wagner & Grant's best & most undervalued pieces of work.  Not to be read if you;re ever feeling a bit down and are looking for something to cheer yourself up, though...

Have to agree with you there Milo, one of the best Wagner & Grant stories with fanatstic Mike McMahon artwork. This would be perfect for the beyond 2000 slot and bring one of the best stories these three ever worked on to the attention of many new readers.

The campaign starts here!

Dang! I don't know whether to vote Paradax or Last American now.

Why not ditch DeMarco PI and run em both!

Demarco PI, where's the love?
« Reply #8 on: 25 November, 2001, 09:37:36 pm »
Why's every one against Demarco PI, It's clearly streets ahead of the second Lenny Zero story.
It would be more constructive to ditch Wardog. Not only is in wasting pages, it's wasting colour pages.

Heston for the Meg!

Ditch Warthog and run Last American in its colour slot.
Paradax can fill Lazarus' boots and deMarco P.I.  can be replaced by something else in black and white and featuring an intelligent crimefighting ape...
HARRY HESTON!

Hey! Don't come down on Lazarus Churchyard! Warren Ellis has produced a realy good strip there. I was actually disturbed by 'Lucy is Drowning'. Brilliant stuff. (Not as good as Transmetropolitan though).

Nope. I'm a lowly fanboy and computer nerd.

You are not a fan boy untill you resign your self to be one. You are just a fan, isn't that enough?
