Monty Python shows up all of these. I smell sampling flaws.

2000ad (readers are) right wing millennials, who watch the news, quote Monty Python and drive Citroens.

Judge Dredd fans, by contrast, are beardless middle aged architects with bad breath, who buy their Armani suits at Primark and spend a lot of time on the internet. Megazine readers are easy going gamers.

Monty Python shows up all of these. I smell sampling flaws.

Typical 2000ad readers are young and Tory, but it's Python that makes you think this might not be science?

And what have the scientists ever done for us? They've bled us white, the bastards, to split their atoms and splice their genes. And not just from us but from our fathers and from our fathers' fathers...

Be excellent to each other. And party on!

It shows up on every page! It's like their main metric.

I loved the idea that average Dredd fans had £1000 a month spare cash. That's almost £50 for every working day. This is where Tharg is going wrong: the Meg should be 75% ads for titanium rolexes  and Virgin Galactic seats. And not, y'know, one for the Prog and one for the MegaCollection. Unless Sexy Ostriches is actually an amazingly subtle campaign for a real service?

People on the bus who cough without covering their mouths.

People in shops with great big rucksacks on, knocking into things and generally getting in the way.


Both are things that made today a little bit worse.
