They confirmed brass sun

Confirmed in the Facebook page last year

Due to popular demand, we're excited to confirm that 2000 AD: The Ultimate Collection will now continue to 140 issues. There will be a natural break in the spine art issue 111, but if you choose to continue collecting we have some awesome stories lined up for you including Finn, Sinister Dexter, Strontium Dogs, ABC Warriors, Brass Sun, Black Hawk, The Mean Arena, and Revere.


Well my ability to predict these tourneys has always been shakey and in my head I had a nailed on final for this one. There were a couple of outliers that I though might nudge in but in reality I struggled to see a final other than Rage and Portrait, two cornerstones of Johnny's story. I love Portrait its not only a great Johnny Alpha story, sort of Johnny mets a Battle story, its also an astonishingly powerful origin story and frankly just a suerb story. It introduces so much to the world.

At the end of the day though

The Killing

Is pure, high octane fun. Its raw entertainment and I think (see above what do I know!) that's what has earnt it, its place in the final, surprise place... well to me...

My Top 3 for Prog 2253

More of the same from last week, i.e. all thrills going well

1st - The Out - can almost smell this episode lol. This thrill always keeps you wondering when you turn the page. Well done

2nd - Dredd - enjoying the Lynch and Boswell artwork and colours on this thrill

3rd -  Scarlet Traces - Amazing colour and battle scenes

Scarlet Traces Is the guy on the first page weeping for the loss of his alcohol on the molotov cocktail? Top notch.

Yeah gave me a chuckle that molotov cocktail joke

Finishing Savage would be awesome if they manage it.
There are 29 books to fill in the extension..

I think we'll get
1 Ro-busters volume (2000 ad stuff only)
1 ABC warriors volume (the three "return to" stories)
1 BlackHawk
1 Revere / Cradlegrave
1 Mean team / mean arena
2 Sinister Dexters (the stuff that was in megazine floppies)
1 Deadworld
1 Finn
1 extra Slaine ?
1 Armoured Gideon
1 War Machine (paired with random Friday one-offs)
1 Leviathan
1 Devlin Waugh (post John smith stuff)
2 Strontium Dogs / Durham Red / Tales Doghouse
1 Samantha Slade (maybe with Hogan Hughes robo hunter)
2 Dredds (could be anything, probably machine law)
1 Harry 20

And then I run out of ideas

I know I'd love some of the rubbish from when I was reading back in the 90s, but I doubt Tharg agrees..

Yes I’m waiting, this, The Boys and The Expanse are why I have an Amazon Prime account.  I’m hopeful everything looks good so far (except Perrin is taller than Rand 🤪) it’ll be interesting how they depict The One Power on screen as it’s quite visual in the books being described as weaving the one power from the preview doesn’t look like they have that part down but it may be different when we see it from the characters point of view as only they can see the weaves the normals just see the results.  I do like the casting and can’t wait for Nynaeve to tug her braid 😊😊

Wonder if we could get the last two arcs of Savage in a book paired up with Disaster 1990 for the sake of completion.

I'd welcome that, I've got Disaster 1990 on floppy thanks to someone on this site, but more Savage is always good.  I was surprised at one thing in The Guv'nor, when he teleported the Siberian Tiger into the Volgan Generals tank and came away with the quip "I put a tiger in his tank", I wondered how many knew the origins of that line.  I remember as a kid in the 70's having some of the Esso posters with the tiger and that phrase.

Disaster was silly but in fun turn your brain off way, although it's main fault was that it seemed to suddenly stop as if the writers had been told "You've got a week or two then this is ending", and that was it.

I got volunteer work in the local Hospice shop, but to be honest I'm not really enjoying it nearly as much as I did the bookshop as that was my specialty so to speak.

Financial worries are no longer a thing which is a big help but I'm still feeling pretty bad mentally.  My sleep patterns are still away to hell, I'm often not getting to sleep till anywhere between 4-6 in the morning and sleeping a good part of the day and I hate that.  I'm still essentially alone and at times feel like I'm going mad, but its no use at all going to my GP or asking for further help as the previous mental health didn't help at all.

Cebulski needs to ... ensure greater degree of people of Asian origin working for Marvel. But only those who know the stuff, not hiring random Asians he meets.

Cebulski definitely needs our advice here - lest he decides, as you say, to just hire "random Asians he meets". I mean, there's a good sketch in there somewhere.

Why you rewrote my post?

The ellipses are a clue for the reader that there was more text in the original. I don't believe I disturbed your meaning. You did say what I quoted.

Are you more than one person, by the way? The reason I ask is that one of you has near perfect English and the other you seems to be operating with English as a second language. Just curious. From the content, I imagine a KGB cell whose remit is to annoy the f*ck out of the West.

Yes, well, I still think that CB owes an apology.

I don't know...Sometimes when I am typing something, I feel peculiarly possessed. Especially when it comes to my shorter posts. The minimum number of prepositions that prompt an activation phase.

DiCaprio on the set of Django, cut his hand and it ended up in the film.

Yes, and Leo stayed in the character for the whole scene.
