Been keeping my eyes peeled for this for sometime and finally we have a listing for the 45 Years of 2000AD book that was announced sometime back.
Not able to preorder yet, but there's some preview images that promises it to be something very special!!!
https://www.amazon.co.uk/45-Years-2000-Ad-Anniversary/dp/1786185717/ref=mp_s_a_1_1

They're 'avin' a larf with the Amazon description though (emphasis mine):
Quote
Kevin O'Neill is a 2000 AD legend. From working as an art assistant on the very first prog, he quickly became involved in the creative side of the comic, co-creating classics like A.B.C. Warriors, Bonjo From Beyond The Stars, Metalzoic and Nemesis the Warlock.

What the hell is Bonjo From Beyond The Stars?
Not sure who ok'd this press release!  :)
Any road up, the book is now up for pre-order at a rather reasonable £25!!!
Definitely on the Xmas list!

Cheers for the link, I'll have to dig out the old Progs as I can't recall anything about it.
Also, I edited my initial comment, as it seemed a bit mean.

Still, he did co-create it, so it's relevant I guess.

So annoyed I was about to check out and got called inside, missed the Beatles book.
Wow—that went out of stock quickly! I had it in my basket also.

Still in stock, apparently!
At least when I just checked!!!

Prog / Re: Prog 0 - AD2000
« on: 03 October, 2021, 11:38:40 PM »
My only problem now  is do I file it in the box with progs 1-100 or in the Sci Fi Specials and Starlord and Diceman box?

If we're classing this as an official Prog, then I'd say file it before Prog 1!   :lol:

Well I wasn't expecting that! I'm a double sub but get the Meg digitally so when opening what I thought was this weeks Prog I was at first surprised as it seemed bigger than expected ... then to my surprise I realised it was Prog 0!

As Richard says its a really, really nice product. Oversized, nice paper and looks pretty much spot on. Absolutely chuffed to have this, so much so that I've not even thought of the disappointment of it not being a Saturday Prog.

THANK YOU THARG!


I'm only a single subbed to The Megazine so didn't expect this to see this at all, but I'm most grateful that I did!!!
Thanks Thargy baby!!!!!

James Wan is and always has been atrociously over represented in major motion horror pictures.

Probably that Saw legacy.  I never understood the love for that film.  I watched Saw 2 in its entirety (it is shit) but I couldn't make it through the first one.  So very boring.

Yep, put me down as someone who never got the appeal of the Saw movies either.
The more a delve into Wan's output, I come to the conclusion that it's an emperor's New clothes deal and he is in fact a bit of a hack.

I've fallen out of love with Croneberg of late, as his output has been patchy at best.
Let's hope that this is more of a return to form, harking back to his greats like Rabid and Videodrome

Malignant.
What an absolute dud. As if director, James Wan had briefly flicked through the A-Z of Giallo Horror and thought I can do that.
A woefully tedious police procedural subplot, gives way to a gore drenched, and mildly attention grabbing, batshit crazy final act that lacked any of the style and flair that someone like Argento would have brought to the material.
One to avoid.

Second year of proper work and a vague attempt to be an adult.
I can only imagine that I spent far too much time on the Commodore Amiga at the time and visiting local hostelries, while contemplating my future life choices! :lol:
Great year for gigs though and music in general.
Guns 'N Roses, Magnum, Ozzy, Soundgarden, King's X, Iron Maiden and Zeppelin were on the playlist at the time and, all these years later, still are!  :)

Just bitten the bullet and splashed out on a RoboCop figure from Hiya Toys and I'm very happy with how detailed it is and the size, it bodes very well from a 2000AD line of figures.

Not sure what other 1/18 scale figures from other manufacturers come in at, but for an idea of scale, Robo was a couple of millimetres taller than a vintage Han Solo figure from Kenner. :thumbsup:
