General / 2000AD in 1990!
« on: 27 August, 2021, 10:07:12 AM »
How much do you remember...?
The prog with Necropolis on the cover was the first one I ever bought.


General / Do you remember 1989?

General / 2000AD ...in 1988!
« on: 19 August, 2021, 11:16:51 AM »
At Last The 1988 Show...
(i.e. a timeline of 2000AD events from that year...)


General / The Stainless Steel Rat story

All about the books and the 2000AD version.
Still the only straightforward literary adaptation in the comic's history?


General / Starlord remembered

Gone, but not forgotten...
Watch the stars!


Film & TV / Star Trek: Enterprise
« on: 23 March, 2021, 05:54:08 AM »
It's twenty years (nearly) since this started. Was initially just called 'Enterprise,' of course.
Thinking of giving it a go. What do people think? (am not concerned about spoilers myself).
Did it work as a prequel?
Another question - which prequels to anything do you think have worked best?

General / History of Comics, 1930-2030
« on: 15 February, 2021, 07:43:16 AM »
I admit I am guilty of shameless self-promotion here as I wrote some of the articles included.
But these four volumes include several 2000AD-related features which would undoubtedly be of interest to many people here. And I've not seen them mentioned anywhere on here, I can only assume people are entirely unaware of them? And you should know they at least exist.
They were published at the end of last year.
There are four magazines each representing a different year.
1977: features an article on the origins of 2000AD and another about the birth of Dredd (these were written by me).
The 1986 one contains features on Diceman magazine and Metalzoic (I wrote the last of these. And one on Watchmen). Lots of other comics stuff in all these volumes.
1984: One on Halo Jones. I just wrote about Transformers comic here.
1950: Obviously nothing about 2000AD here. Stuff on Dan Dare and The Eagle though.
I'm not exactly unbiased. But well worth a look, I'd say...


Despite the title, the 2020s are not really covered...

Film & TV / Wesley Crusher?
« on: 19 January, 2021, 07:52:40 AM »
I was watching Star Trek the other day.
What was the deal with Wesley Crusher exactly?
I seem to remember he was very unpopular with the ST fan base for some reason? Why was that? He was an okay actor wasn't he? Was he forced off the show in the end?

General / 1977 and all that...

Announcements / Halo Jones/2000AD features in Comic Scene
« on: 08 October, 2019, 01:19:09 PM »
Two features on the Galaxy's Greatest Comic are to appear in the magazine Comic Scene later in October.
(I will declare an interest here - I wrote them).
One is a timeline of key events in 2000AD history.
The other is on the long lamented Ballad of Halo Jones.

General / Whatever happened to Star Lord?
« on: 14 April, 2019, 09:22:16 AM »
Has there ever been a story done about this? I mean the character rather than the actual comic.

Books & Comics / Marvelman/Watchmen info?
« on: 08 January, 2019, 10:35:10 AM »
Hi there readers!
Can anyone recommend any good resources for info on Alan Moore? Am thinking Marvelman/Watchmen particularly? Also stuff on Before Watchmen (although I know that wasn't him).
Any books, online articles, interviews, podcasts?
I already have Lance Parkin's excellent biography.
Any help would be marvelous/miraculous!
Thanks a lot!

General / Top 2000AD moments of the last 25 years
« on: 16 November, 2018, 08:02:34 AM »
What do you think have been the top 10 greatest moments of 2000AD's last quarter century?
Am pretty up on the comic until the mid-90s but regrettably lost interest for a while after that.
What have I missed?
