Borag Thungg
« on: 03 December, 2016, 09:09:25 pm »
I have been reading 2000AD since prog 1, and if there is one message I could send to myself as a child, it would be to preserve all my progs forever in polybags. But I didn't do that, and I suppose my mother just threw them out when I left them on the living room floor. So I have been painstakingly rebuilding my collection for the last couple of years.

I live in France but will be back in the UK for the 40th Anniversary. Yay!

Welcome Slithy.

A familiar tale of childhood woe for many of us I'm sure!

A fine display of progs covering the floor is one I remember well. Enjoy the 40th! Say hello! I will be the one not wearing a judges outfit  :o

Thanks everyone for the welcome!

In fact I was very successful in rebuilding my collection thanks to the generosity of madprofessor40 on these boards. I was back in the UK for Christmas so I was able to pick up the progs and ship them to France. I now have all progs from 1-1500 (plus all from 2000 onwards as I have started subscribing again). Wow!

In celebration of this, and anticipating the 40th anniversary, I have started a blog about 2000AD from prog 1 onwards. First installment is here:

I will put all future posts on Diaspora* with the #2000ad tag, so if you like the post above, you can follow all future posts here:

As an aside, I now have several hundred duplicate progs which I will list for sale in the Classifieds forum.
