Best Of 2000AD #1 Retailer Exclusive. Charity Auction. Condition is New.

This was donated to the cause by Rob Ellis and was originally planned for me to take to a signing before selling it for charity. Sadly all signings are cancelled for the foreseeable future.

It’s new and unread and in a comic bag with board, and posted to you in an A4 card backed envelope.

This is a 100% for charity auction with every penny you pay going to cancer research UK. 99p start, free second class postage and packing from me and next day UK dispatch.


Usual drill. Passing on a Sean Phillips signed and sketched hardback for cancer research UK.

Website and Forum / iOS app update problem

The iPad app has updated and looks all shiny and new.
It lets me sign in ok but won’t download any content.
I’ve quit it, uninstalled and reinstalled but still the same.
Any ideas?

Website and Forum / Wraparound covers on digital issues
« on: 04 December, 2019, 01:11:07 PM »
A while back we were getting wraparound cover images as part of the digital file on the iPad app.
At some point this seems to have been forgotten or overlooked so that Progs like 2060 don't include a wraparound image of Stewart Moore's fabulous cover.

Any chance this helpful practice can be reinstated?

Classifieds / Letters from Tharg 3 - Electric Thargaloo!
« on: 26 November, 2019, 02:48:13 PM »

Thanks to the Beastmaster himself and please fill your boots.


Here are the other promised charity auctions from Thought Bubble. Generously donated by an anonymous donor. 50% of the proceeds will go directly to cancer research UK, with the other 50% going to his local Parkinson's disease society. And free postage from me so all your pennies go to a good cause.

Here is the biggie, the A3 sized Joe Pineapples sketch shown above. By the Biz himself.

Bad Boy hardback by Frank Miller and Bisley, signed on the front cover by Mr Bisley

The Daily Dredds volume 2 signed by John Wagner

Trigan Empire vols 7&9 in German

More Slaine, this time in German

And Demon Killer in French in a lovely really large hardback edition

And the whimsical oddity for this bunch of auctions, a Dutch superstrips black and white comics anthology.

All of these are 99p starts, although I expect the Bisley sketch won't stay there for long (Dutch superstrips on the other hand?)
Free postage and dispatch as soon as I possibly can. Special delivery on the Pineapples sketch, otherwise by the most economical method I can get them to you.

Any questions, please ask.
Start your engines and here we go on the push towards £10k raised by this forum.
Cheers all.

One week on and still got that Thought Bubble buzz. For anyone who doesn't know this is the UK comics convention to get to if you can.

And part of my buzz is from the amazing generosity of people who donated items to the cause for cancer research UK. Special thanks to Rob Stewart, Si Spurrier, Ian Edginton, D'Israeli, Bolt-01, Damian, and Large48 who all gave items.

So here we go, there is quite a lot to get through. All are 99p starts with the usual free P&P so every penny you pay goes straight to fund cancer research.

The Planet Replicas Biochip pins signed on the backing card by Dave Gibbons.

The Tom Foster A4 Dredd print signed on the front by John Wagner and Tom himself, and on the back by 32 other droids.

Phew! What a lot we've got. And there's more to come. I'll be listing another 15 or so items soon including, would you believe it, an A3 Joe Pineapples sketch by none other than Simon Bisley himself. Watch this space.

I'm staggering the end dates of some of these auctions to give me time to get to the post office and keep up my day job. As ever if you win an early auction and have your eyes on a later one then message me and I'll post together if possible.

And I still have some items kept back for the Christmas raffle so with these auctions, and the Buttonman ones, and the raffle we might push the running total close to the £10k mark!

Time for the traditional lie down with a damp prog on my forehead and a reviving sniff of the jockstrap that Pete Wells donated but I'm keeping for myself for personal reasons.

Cheers all.

More from the Buttonman’s personal collection including some of those coveted letters from Tharg.


Insurrection Liberty trade with a letter

Sinister Dexter Money Shots with letter

Dredd case files 31

And got some more of these to list in the coming week. All 99p starts with free p&p (thank you, Stephen) and 100% for cancer research UK.

And if you’re looking forward to my Thought Bubble signed items they should be up next week.

Not just content with the enormous achievement that is the Letters to Tharg Beast the forum’s very own Buttonman, Stephen Watson, has donated some trade paperbacks to help raise money for cancer research UK.

First up the rare and sought after Stainless Steel Rat trade paperback, and a letter from the Mighty One himself.


And then the Invasion 1984! trade that Stephen and I discussed on a recent episode of the podcast.


Both are 99p starts, 100% for Cancer research UK and Stephen is generously throwing in free postage as well. You know what to do.

And stay tuned for some more books from the master of the Beast. Thank you, Stephen.

General / Fans from the Eastern Front meet up in Cambridge 05/10/19
« on: 31 August, 2019, 02:30:35 PM »

Superfan Garry Hill is organising the first meet up of the 2000AD Eastern contingent as follows:

"Hi folks taking the initiative from John Burdis and the 2000AD Southern Contingent I've set up a fan group for us in the Eastern region. Very originally, it's called the 2000AD Eastern Contingent. 😉

Making the beautiful city of Cambridge our base, the first meet up is planned for Saturday 5th October at 2pm meeting at The Grain and Hop Store pub in Regent Street.

So, leave the keyboards, tablets and phones behind and meet up with some of your fellow 2000AD fans in person to drink, eat and talk about the galaxy's greatest and anything else you want. We may even have a mystery 2000AD guest in attendance too!"

Garry will be there, I'll be there, there may even be an inky fingered droid there. If you're anywhere near Cambridge come a long for a few scoops*, a few laughs, and some 2000AD chat. First pint is on me!

*My Irish heritage coming out. Alcoholic beverages.
