Help! / Locating lost images
« on: 05 December, 2002, 01:25:43 AM »
I asked this question already, but I think it got lost in the swampy recesses of the 'SoWhat do they look like?' thread:
Does anyone know how to locate the URL address of an image attached to someone else's message? Some of the images don't seem to be appearing for me today.

General / I can't get no sleep
« on: 03 December, 2002, 09:19:33 PM »
Now, I realise this is a bit late and I'm sure I've missed another thread discussing the same thing, but I really, really enjoyed Gordon Rennie's Dredd story about him hitting the boozer on his time off. Just the kind of one-off I like, and one of Mr Rennie's best yet.
That is all.

General / Scojo's age query
« on: 28 November, 2002, 04:43:53 PM »
Anyone know what age Scojo was (or is, I suppose)? I would have put him at about 15 to 17 mark. He couldn't have been much older than that. Could he?

General / Garth Ennis. Fair play to him.
« on: 28 November, 2002, 04:24:51 PM »
Now, I'd be the first man to say that most of what Garth Ennis did for 2000ad was muck. I have done, loads of time.
But I have to say, fair bollix to him, because he'd be the second. Whilst Mark Millar bleats on about how his Robohunter was cool no matter what people think, Garth Ennis freely admits most of his 2000ad stuff wss tripe.
Then again, i suppose as one of the most successful comic writers around he can afford to. (Preacher started really well, but got a bit repetetive near the end; Hellblazer varied between great and terrible; and I haven't read much else of his stuff. Christ alone knows how he got the job in DC in the first place after 2000ad, but he has improved incredibly)>

General / Bix Barton was good.
« on: 28 November, 2002, 02:45:38 AM »
Having just seen Bix Barton in another thread; can I just say that although the series were slated, I liked Bix Barton. So now.
I thought it made very good use of social satire; and was among the few genuinely funny comedy series in 2000ad (as were certain other Milligan comedy series). It was certainly funnier than most of Sinister Dexter's half-arsed throwaway quips. I remember a comics journal saying that Bix Barton was Milligan 'insulting our intelligence and his own', but me, I thought it was scripted like a (slightly) futuristic Blackadder.  The only dodgy thing was Jim McCarthy's unpleasant coloured artwork. It was fine how it started, in black and white.
The bit with Paul Daniels was my favourite bit.

Now: Attack me! I'm ready.

General / Something 2000ad has done and nothing else has?
« on: 27 November, 2002, 05:46:56 PM »
There has been a lot of talk on this board about how 2000ad has become an adult comic. Fair enough; I say, I'm not about to start arguing (again) about whether it should or shouldn't.(Alright, so more swearing, nudity and ultraviolence may not always be considered more 'adult'; but it has to be said the stories aren't always aimed at kids any more, and they were when 2000ad started).
What I'm wondering is, has there been any other comic, magazine, TV series, series of films or similar that did what 2000ad did, ie. started out as a kids' thing and then matured with its audience? I know Batman and so on put out the odd graphic novel for adults; and I know that other DC / Marvel comics disappeared for years and suddenly returned as 'Mature Readers' jobs, but I really can't think of anything that changed gradually with its readership.

Off Topic / A thread about Alan Partridge, and not about 2000ad
« on: 27 November, 2002, 01:58:21 AM »
So, anyone watching the new Alan Partridge series? What do you think? Bear in mind that i din't see last Monday's one yet, but I videoed it, so don't tell me what happens.

General / Armitage's Brit Cit
« on: 25 November, 2002, 10:43:49 PM »
Anyone remember Dave Stone's Brit Cit, as developed in Armitage and perfected in the novel Deathmasques (which wasn't too shabby at all, despite my fears at the time)? As far as I can see, it was a very different, and more original, place than John Wagner's version of the same city. Although I never read Brit-Cit babes; was it similar to the Armitage Brit Cit?

General / What happened to Mega-City 2?
« on: 25 November, 2002, 06:55:23 AM »
Or at least the new Hondo-run city built on its site. Has it ever been mentioned since? The people deserve to know

General / Any dukos, Nay?
« on: 25 November, 2002, 06:51:41 AM »
This is for my friend Nay Martin, who I very recently told I was called Jayzus B. Christ on this board.  He said he would check up on this site tomorrow, so this one's for you, Nay. He used to read my 2000ad's when we shared a flat. His favourites are 'Finny and Ray', as he insists they are called. His all-time hero, however, is Andr? Agassi, and he once appeared on television!!!!! Sorry, everyone. This has to be done, I'm afraid.

General / ABC Warriors Black Hole Query
« on: 13 November, 2002, 04:42:46 AM »
Does it really say 'F-ck' on Joe's gun? I remember 'F.O.A.D.' written on said gun, but not the  full, uncensored demonic f-word from the seventh pit of hell in all its stark evil.

Suggestions / Cockin non-posting posts explained
« on: 13 November, 2002, 03:35:58 AM »
Okay, I read this in another link and I'm just going to repeat what someone else said. I think it's right.
But just to save Wake explaining, and other people scouring the board for answers, this is why (I think) posts aren't posting:

Each message can only be answered ten times.
However, most people being more used to the old system, they are simply replying to the first message on the thread rather than a message further down the thread.
*So just make sure click on the circle beside 'Reply' on the message you want to reply to, rather than on the word reply.

Am I right, Wake?  

General / Rogue query
« on: 12 November, 2002, 04:34:09 AM »
I re-read a recent prog recently, where Rogue is attacked by Nort dust devils. He collapses and one of his hearts fails due to gas getting through his mask. He then tells the bio-chips that gas got through his mask, and the caption says that he is lying to them. What was he lying about? I'm not being a pedant, I genuinely think I have missed something here.

General / Grant the Magicman
« on: 21 October, 2002, 02:20:23 AM »
Has anyone ever read the 'Pop Magic' section on Grant Morrison's webpage (www.grant-morrison.com)? What do you think? Truth or shite? I mean, the man is pretty successful. And we have covered a few of the prediction in his strips that sort of came true.
Grant Morrison: Jesus Christ or Ali Bongo? YOU decide.

General / Wake'll Fix It (hopefully)
« on: 20 October, 2002, 11:30:38 PM »
Dear Wake, I have a problem. The hotmail account I originally used to register to 2000adonline has long since closed down, and as a result I do not know either my password or the log-in name I used, and as such can only log on from one computer (this one). I can't e-mail you either, again because of the expired account. Can you help?
Frustrated, Dublin
