Wasn't there a Future SHock where an abused alien boy swapped bodies with a flying alien thing only to find out that the flying alien thing he fancied was his mum and she abused him even wore than his evil dad?  

I think he happened to have some body swap technology lying around in the barn (which I felt was very bad plotting and Bisonesque) but because he was abused you did feel a bit of sympathy for him (which was good and unBisonesque).

They did reply somewhere else (in reply to, I think, Gordon Rennie).  Yes, it was meant to be over the top so that the upcoming "twist" would shock us even more.

It's all too horrible to contemplate now. It could twist and turn 'til it's blue in the face but I don't gove a rat's arse about any of the characters which makes it a very hard read.  In fact, I positively hate Bison.  Dirty Harry/Dredd never behaved like that - they had boundaries.

I do like the art though.

I was there last year and I can't recommend it highly enough.

Because of it's location it isn't mad busy so you get plenty of opportunity to chat to the writers and artists.  They are all very welcoming and polite and the panels are entertaining and informative.

And the village is in a nice location and all the locals were friendly.

As for the Ceilidh... it'll be marvellous.  I think Alan Grant is on record somewhere as saying that he's invited loads of people he likes so if no comic fans turn up they'll just have a big party!

"Is there anything worn under the kilt?"

"No, it's all in perfect working order..."

"'Leg' is a bit vague."

It was just above her right knee.  Luckiy it never ended up in my face.

"I think it's a sign of comics fanaticism that when you got your tongue on her you closed your eyes and imagined a cartoon character."

Yeah, my only defence can be that these were Ian Gibson babes. IAN GIBSON BABES.

MY PERFECT HALO MOMENT
All of this talk of Ian Gibson, his babes and all of the people saying how they are in love with Halo Jones made me reminisce about my perfect Halo Jones moment.  If you are still up using the message board at this time of night then this may help send you to sleep.

It was down in Manchester back in about 1988 ? I?m crap with dates.  I was at a ?Transvision Vamp? gig at The Boardwalk.  The Boardwalk is a very intimate venue, some of you have probably got bigger living rooms and Transvision Vamp weren?t very well known at the time.  Actually, they went from promising band to obscurity without troubling the charts in-between times.

Anyway, the gig starts and I?m right down at the front and on to the stage struts lead singer Wendy James.  This woman is absolutely gorgeous.  Five foot six of sex dressed in a motorcycle jacket (with ?The Clash? painted on the back), a Halo Jones ?Increased Leisure Citizen? T-shirt and a Minnie Mouse swimming costume!

I can?t believe it; tow of my favourite things; The Clash and Halo on one of my other favourite things.

The gig gets under way and they play an energetic set that has everyone pogoing as if their lives depend up on it.  It slows down a bit when they do their HALO JONES song (?I?m hanging out with Halo Jones??).  Then it all starts getting lively again and the kick into the perfect pop of I WANT YOUR LOVE (which I think was their biggest hit).

Wendy has stripped down to just the swimming costume by now. She steps forward and places her foot on the monitor just in front of me.  She?s right there in front of me; perfect woman, perfect thigh inches away from me.  I can?t resist.

I lean forward, stick out my tongue and lick her leg for what seems like an eternity. I?m oblivious of the gig going on around me; I?ve just melted into the delicious world of Halo Jones and Wendy James has been transformed before my very eyes into the perfect Ian Gibson drawn babe. An image of every Ian Gibson babe tingles through my entire body and I close my eyes in rapture.

A bouncer picks me up by the scruff of the neck, drags me to the back of the room and kicks fuck out of me.

But all we have to base this petition on are the (admittedly lovely) pictures.

Does anyone know what the plot is?  Can Gibson write as well as he can draw Judges, cigar chomping heroes and maniac robots (oh, and top burds, lest you forget)?

>>Up and down the messageboard the more vociferous Bec and Kawl dislikers are slapping their foreheads and shouting "D'oh!" - to which I can really only shrug. As I've said before, it's not my place to go defending anything and I totally respect people's right to dislike something. My only comment would be that feedback from all quarters other than the 'online community' has been extremely positive.

Si,
I don't think you need to apologise up front for your work by quoting feedback.

You keep saying on scriptdroids that people should get over it and get on with it and it is sound advice.  Some people, me included, didn'tlike Bec and Kawl.

Don't worry about it.

You keep saying on scriptdroids that people should get over it and get on with it and it is sound advice.  

When you tell a joke, not everybody will laugh.  But as long as you can you know in your heart that you have produced your best then you can hold your head up high and you don't need to go pre-emptively defending your stuff against people that don't like it.

I used to do a bit of standup comedy.  Did an act one night that had them rolling in the aisles at the eight o' clock show but at the midnight show, I did the same stuff and all I could here was a voice from the darkness shouting "**** OFF, YOU'RE SH**".

I know the material was good, I know I was good. He just didn't fancy it.  I didn't apologise, you shouldn't apologise either.

Oooh. That Halo Jones moment has made me all mellow and full of tips.

BISON:  This is a slight twist on the unforgiveable first episode but I feel no sympathy for the character's plight. "A good Cop in a bad world" - bollocks - last week he was about to give a beggar a good kicking for no reason (or did I miss something).  Still, I do hope his plight is short for purely selfish reasons.

STRONT, VCS, ROGUE:  Again, despite the stories rattling along and the art being uniformly great I can't help but get the "been there, done that" feeling for all of these. ROGUE could have come straight from a copy of BATTLE or COMMANDO.  VCs seems to be taking a style lead from STARSHIP TROOPERS (the movie).  I know these are old style thrills but I would like the odd bit of depth to them.

JD: Best thing in it.  Who is the new artiest - I love the way he does Lawmasters.

Thrills of the Future: I do like Richard Elson's art but we'll have to wait and see what the story is like...

Favourite moment in the new Meg:-

The line around the keyring photo noting that it is not actual size. Damn! I need a keyring the size of a plate to stop me losing my keys!


My personal favourite moment was in your article. It was also the most massive piece of understatemnet it has ever been my pleasure to witness.  Ian Gibson recalls Maze Dumoir:
"It showed them I could draw girls properly"

I recommend THE OTHER SIDE to everyone wondering about whether following the link to Arthur's seat - takes a funny concept and has good fun with it before getting to a twist that genuinely suprised me - all in TWO pages. And I'm sure you'll enjoy the scripts as well.

Personally, I'd go the other way.

Keep 2000AD full of fresh new thrills (with the judge) and maybe just one old/not so old school thrill.

For a RETRO blast, you could have a monthly title that features a complete story for ROUGUE TROOPER or STRONTIUM DOG etc.  You could alternate the monthly titles like they are doing with the audio stuff.

I don't mind the RETRO thing too much but what I'm looking for is the buzz that reading a brand new prog. used to give me years ago as opposed to (what I think too much retro gives you) the feeling that you've just reread a good old prog that you'd half forgotten the stories in.

Did that come out clear?  Did anyone understand what I mean?  Am I alone in the world of PG TIPS?

The Citizen Kane references did grate slightly but the actual revealation of ROSEBUD bought a tear to my eye...(almost).

Prog / Re: Prog 1301 Spoilers Ah -AHH -...
« on: 25 July, 2002, 03:57:59 PM »
I did enjoy this prog, but yet again, I was left with the feeling that it was all a little TOO retro.

Art throughout was fabulous; clean, unfussy and in places idiosyncratic without being inaccessible.

JD was good but too short - didn't really go anywhere - hopefully will be followed up later.

ROGUE was OK ish but I can't help feeling that this would have been polished off in a single episode in the old days.

VCs - thoroughly enjoyed it.  Technobable actually had bearing to the characters and actions rather than just being made up nonsense.  However the old timers showing up the young guns is a bit of a cliche.

BISON: Speaking of cliche... the only thing that can save this is a major reversal of style and/or genre.  A twist of the size that turned Psycho from a heist movie into a slasher movie or that turned FROM DUSK TIL DAWN from Tarantino movie into naked vampire blood fest.  Tharg would never commisson a (adopt gravelly voice) "He's a cop on the edge..." story so I'm thinking that this must turn into an out and out parody or something completely unexpected.  As someone pointed out, it reads like the start of LAST ACTION HERO.

STRONTY DOG: OKish. I loved the art, I loved the "WRONG" but if it turns out they are in some form of mad alien ZOO or in an alien hunting ground ("where we test your abilities.  You have passed Mister Alpha, you are free to go".). I'd be most disappointed.  John Wagner's hardly disappointed me since the days of Battle - I do hope he's not going to start now.

cheers
