Wow I love the attention to detail - that list of all the Nemesis details is fantastic and then to add such a eclectic mix of series and go from Nemesis to 7 Wonders is just genius.

This resource truly could rival Barney!

Funt Solo - just want to say I've used the A-Z for the first time in anger, not just admiration. I wanted to know how far ahead Sinister Dexter's first appearance in the Winter Special was compared to their Prog appearance and had forgotten it was almost a full year!

Yay - it's got a practical use!

I'm currently fiddling with narrowing some of the columns where the tables go too wide for a 1024 pixel layout. And thinking about doing an ABC highlights table.

---

I used the phrase "something something in anger" here in the US and got shocked responses - like "why were you angry?" and "it's probably not a good idea to be angry while you do a task". I don't often really, really miss Britain - but sometimes these US folk just don't understand our phrasing.





The c**ts.

Oh not I meant I was bloody furious I wouldn't remember and I used it then throw my laptop across the room. Those Americans have a point!

Currently trying to recall where Brass & Bland showed up in the Rogue Trooper stories.

I already have:
 - The Body Looters, prog 265
 - To The Ends Of Nu Earth, progs 387-392
 - The Professionals, 2019 Villains Special

Does anyone recall them showing up in other stories?

Here's a list of story titles between Body Looters and To The Ends:

All Hell On The Dix-I Front
Milli-Way Sixty-Six
[Pray For War] or [Waldos]
The Assassination Run
Hats Off To Helm
The Marauders
Fort Neuro
Major Magnam
Genetic Infantryman Of Nu Earth
Bio-Wire
Milli-Com Memories
The Droidonators
Vid-Vultures
Eye Of The Traitor
First Of The Few
The 'Frisco Phog
From Hell To Eternity
Mega-Minefield
The Gasbah
Timeslip
Colonel Kovert
You Only Die Twice
Message From Milli-Com
Portrait Of A Rebel
[The War Of Words]
Just Routine
[Blind Terror] or Blinded
Death Valley
M For Murder

Oh, cool! Thanks for the positive feedback and I'm glad it's useful.

I've been doing quite a bit of behind the scenes prep. for it, and am excited about the big ones: Slaine (it's gonna be biblical), Rogue Torpor (sic) and Strontium Dog(s). And as for Dredd ... still turning a few dials and adjusting knobs ("Public indecency, creep! Three months!") but that'll be a bit of a doozy.

Also daydreaming about a "continuity" section to try and put things in context for the various 'verses: Millsverse, Dreddverse, Strontiverse, Rogueverse, Cabsverse etc.

Still willing to cheat the system and favor thrills for inclusion based on requests. Any takers?
