Can this be anything, or does everyone prefer comic/2000AD products?

I have a few Robert E. Howard paperbacks. I also have a couple of issues of Crossed (have to check the numbers), several Dark Horse and Marvel Conans, a few Dynamite Red Sonjas, Rawbone issue #1, Viking #1, a few Northlanders...I'll post a complete list later if this stuff appeals to anyone!

suppose having initiated this would give some duty of care for the provision of rules.  The only one is if someone takes up an offer they post up something else - no restrictions beyond that applied by common sense ( so nothing dodgy like Maggie Thatchers' memoirs or any writings by Tony Bliar ).  If there is an interest then no doubt the new offer will be taken up.  To be honest I am adopting the same level of trust as with Colin.  Did not ask for anything, even postage, so seems only fair that others get the same offer.

Please feel free to ask any questions.

If all history is relative, can there be any such concept as 'being'?

M@

ah, now that would depend on whether you are a subscriber to Lacanian psychoanalysis or prefer a more Derridean anlysis.  Personally I would have to fall in with Foucault's discursive theories so as such 'being' would be a construction of lived experience combined with the influence of panopticon forces ...

... or maybe just not enough alchohol?

( reality is a state of mind brought on by lack of alchohol )

The first offering has been bagged and will be winging its way to a new home shortly.  Will be interesting to see what is offered up next.

I have just found that i have about three each of all those annuals (I inherited 2 peoples collections) I am sourly tempted by the Megs but Mrs Tweak may very well disagree.

The Prog slog of sorting my comic collection is almost done however. My trades (not just 2000ad) alone take up one 2x2 EXPEDIT Shelving unit and one 4x2 EXPEDIT Bookcase :S


Know the feeling.  Some of these came from trying to fill gaps via ebay.  I've taken to a combination of filing cabinet, 'really useful boxes' and comic boxes ( sorry have to confess to a slight affection for some american titles, although they are waning in interest now ).  I assume that is 'sorely' although I suppose it could work both ways!

Anyhoo, the previously offered items have now been claimed and will shortly be winging their way to a new home.  Be interesting to see what gets offered in return.

Thanks, probably should have mentioned that any interested bodies should PM, but that might be a bit too obvious.  Then again, we all know what assume makes! ;)

Will also make the following additional offers:

Megazine 1, 7, 210, 215, 217

2000ad 482, 486, 487, 489, 490, 492, 493, 494, 498, 499

How do. Why did your mum object to Nemesis in particular?

not entirely sure, but then it was the height of the O'neill stuff so ....

Having been the recipient of Colin_YNWA's largesse ( and overwhelming desire to acquire living space which I can empathise with )  and in the seasonal spirit I am making the following offer to anyone who is interested.  Free to a good home, postage paid: 2000ad annuals 1989, 1991, 1993 and Judge Dredd Annual 1990.  My only condition is that whoever wants them makes a similar offer of something else that they think they can part with with the same condition.

Any takers?

I think I have to agree with the general sentiment that seems to be going around at the moment.  Dredd is standing head and shoulders above the rest with the slow and subtle political machinations giving the whole series a much more interesting dimension.  Still think Munn is going to be another Buell but glad that Pinky hasn't been killed off in a few pages like so many other Dredd villains.  Is Francisco going to be the winner for the shortest Chief Judge to date? 

Sinister Dexter has to be the next for my money.  Never been a great fan and would agree with previous comments about the length of time between each run.  That said, this run is showing greater potential.  It seems to be pointing toward a great big blowout some time in the near future.  Have to agree on the quote of the prog above - nice one.  Should have included the following line as well ...

Future Shock - not particularly futurey or shocking and looking at Cooper's Johnny Red artwork in the old Eagle's ( guilty pleasure but there were some gems in there ) it just doesn't seem as polished as it used to. 

Slaine has never been my cup of tea but making an effort on this run in the hope that it might surprise.

Lucifer lite - sorry, feel free to enjoy, I'm taking the age old advice - "If you don't like it, turn it off / go read something else". 

I guess we have been a little spoiled just lately.  With any luck this will be the brief lull before prog 2010.

BTW - pleasantly surprised by the Droid Life poster.  Nice little number to adorn the wall.  Sweetened the bitter pill of the subs price increase [ what happened to deflation?  :-* ]

Welcome again, it makes it a bit easier to feel part of the community.  Many long-time lurkers here, so you're in good company.  And the less said about my 650-700 arrival the better (I don't remember the EXACT prog because the next day I ran out to my local comic shop (30 minutes away) and grabbed the best part of 6 months worth of thrill power. 

Best move I ever made.  Other than signing up here of course.  (Hopes Kate doesn't read this!)

yeah, well I try not to talk too loudly about a brief spell in the wilderness in the early eighties when my mother caught sight of Nemesis ... nadir had to be Look In, but still fond memories of the Marvel Star Wars stuff.  Now I just keep trying to convince the wife that all those boxes are a prime future investment.  Just trying subtly to get the bairns into it too ( is 2 months too early? )

have been trying for a while to figure out how to solve a grievous error of propriety, having started posting without having introduced self.  A very civilised Mr Gloady suggested doing so anyway so here I am, atoning for such an act of incivility ...

long time reader ( one of the oft loathed 'well I bin reading since prog 1' brigade, although in fact 'twas from prog 30.  Long time subber to both tooth and meg.  Bit eclectic in general reading tastes and always welcome a good recommendation for something new.

So, hello ....

... and sorry for taking so long!  :-[

will nip over and abase self before the hallowed masses forthwith .. have been subscribing for ages, reading for longer than I would really like to admit, and enjoying the wit and wisdom of these boards for a while.  Perfect recovery at times from a really lousy day!  Number of laugh out loud moments generated by this board ... to be honest it does seem like the same brand of scatalogical with that I have come to know and love is being employed in anticipation of that welcome thud on the doormat ( gutted that it is not waiting for me today, enjoyed savouring it of a friday evening these last few weeks, ah well ..

anyway, thanks for the welcome

I dont want to see a cover image in the review thread either thanks.

I am 41 yrs of age but i still like a surprise on a Wednesday

That right there is quote of the day for me.

yeah, but is wednesday the only day he likes the surprise?

and please excuse a relative newbie ( with humble apologies for not having posted over on 'new to the board' due to a work induced inability to read properly anymore and now severely embarassed over the social faux pas and no idea how to resolve the problem short of seppuko or throwing self at mercy of fellow boarders  :-[ ) but where exactly has the review gone?

got to agree with the sentiment but already subscribing to SFX kind of duplicates it.  That is my main problem with the reviews.  I always take them as the writers own personal opinion and respect them as such, I just don't see them as belonging to the meg.

'I am struggling to remember the last time someone had a positive comment about them'

I did five posts up  ;D

Ok, fair dues, take that back ...  ::) would you settle for on balance they are generally disliked and the space would be better used for an alternative purpose?
