General / Re: The 2000AD Messageboard Advent Calendar, 2021 edition

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

As Sheridan rightly said, my big news and reason for my absence from the forum over recent years is that I've been working on my dream project - a collection of professionally animated and narrated Multisensory stories for children and adults with severe special needs. It's finally released early next year and is looking AMAZING! I'm extremely proud of what has been achieved.

Check out a little preview here: https://www.helpkidzlearn.com/inclusive-stories-coming-soon and some very cool behind the scenes stuff here: https://scotttyrrelldesign.com/inclusive-stories-animated-films

A recurring character in my stores is Sheldon Snail (he makes a little Easter Egg style cameo in every story) so, for the advent calendar, I thought I'd write his one and only 2000 AD crossover sensory story. Hmmmm, it explains a lot...

Hope you like it:

Merry Christmas everyone, and well done (particularly to the tireless Colin) for keeping the forum homefires burning in these times of social media! Love to you all!


A fantastic start! Well done McFad, they look AMAZING!!!

Merry Christmas Everyone!!!

I bloody LOVED that Dredd, though the Fast and the Furious blokes were a bit on the nose. Ben Willsher has always been amazing at Lawmaster-based Dredds!

There were some coll little cameos in the strip too!

I have both, and I must say, the Xbox is getting the most play time. You’re right about playing games you normally wouldn’t CalHab, I downloaded the Plague Tale game the other day and it was excellent. Highly recommended if you enjoyed Hellblade.

I loved how Higgins’ Dredd took me back to Phantom of the Shopperawith all that scaffolding, I wonder if that was intentional?

I must say, I worried a bit when reading it. I know we can’t have him forever, but it felt a little like Wagner maybe revisiting things for the last time and maybe wrapping things up. Maybe I’m reading too much into it all.

Here you go Mr Jim!

I once asked John what he thought about this story, and in his gruff, Dreddlike way he said “I thought it was a bit incestuous!”

This is really lovely... Pete, reading through that I went "oh I'm not sure about this" to being in floods of tears in less than a minute.

Thanks Owen. It absolutely came from a place of love and even I wouldn’t be flippant about the passing of someone we all hold so dear.

This is impossible to process. Bolt lit up any room, and reached out to everyone, regardless of their social difficulties or shyness. I find it incredible that there was any darkness in him. This breaks my heart all over again.

I’d do anything just to sit and chat with him.

Bolt was just so, so lovely and the absolute best of us. Utterly selfless, always very kind, super enthusiastic about 2000 AD. His keen eye and nurturing nature will have helped launch loads of careers.

I loved seeing Dave and would always make a beeline for him at cons. I spent many happy hours drinking and chatting with him. This is a sad day for 2000 AD fandom.

My heart goes out to his equally lovely family (his relationship with his daughter was beautiful) and to Richmond, whose post above has just broken me.

I just want you all to know, although I dont post as much, that lots of you really do mean a lot to me and I appreciate you all. I’ll be having a drink to Dave, and the rest of you, tonight.
