Feels like an intervention is called for here.

“Legendary Shark, can you show us - using this vintage action figure from the 1994 movie The Shadow - what the bad man Alec Baldwin did to you?”

I did directly ask Pat on social media about the lack of any credit for Martin and accompanying proper profit share for his family, and he replied with some weak shite about the producers not wanting too many names in the credits.

Of course. It seemed strange that the champion of only his own creator rights and originator of all those devastating Mills Bombs dropped on bullshit-spouting editors and publishers would meekly accept such an arrangement, but there you go.

Great. Will Martin Emond be getting his rightful credit on this one, or will Accident Man again uniquely be a comic character created by two writers without the involvement of a comic artist?

And there was me trying to save you typing all that out again, Jim. ;)

The important thing is that the commenter got to turn the conversation into a swipe at Regened, which is a subject that hardly ever comes up for discussion.

The world moves on, but not all of its inhabitants do. Similar vibes in the Regened threads, really, with people baffled that 2000 AD’s approach to today’s young person demographic isn’t identical to the material they themselves enjoyed decades ago.
& it is equally baffling given that approach that 2000AD expects new young readers to then start reading the standard prog.

Where exactly has this been stated anywhere?

Having said all that. From David Roach over on Facebook

Artwork from an upcoming Apex Edition book I'm compiling for Rebellion devoted to Mick McMahon. Do you out there in art-collecting land have any artwork by Mick? Particularly Slaine pages? Of so please do let me know, I'd love to include it in the book..... Thank you!

Under which is an original page from Sky Carriots - do looks like it will include more than Dredd after all!

Despite being Facebook’s unparalleled expert on nudieness, Dave has somehow got his wires crossed here.

This volume is all Dredd and only Dredd.

The story so far:

“This book called Judge Dredd by Mike McMahon -Apex Edition, is it just his Dredd stories in it?”

should your pitch give away the whole plot, including the twist? I usually take a 'pitch' to be something that teases a story but doesn't give everything away.

I’ve seen people ask this before about Future Shock pitches, and it kind of confounds me.

Yes, if you’re asking someone to buy your twist-in-the-tail short story, you absolutely have to tell them what the twist is.

He even acknowledged it afterwards.

Wow, that’s amazing.

Tell me, what  actual repercussions did he - or any of the rest of them - suffer for admitting they started an illegal war on knowingly fraudulent grounds?

Does it not bother you in the slightest how fast you come running to defend the powerful?

As with David Amess, someone may disagree with his personal politics, but when it comes to the military issues, Colin at least wasn't that bloodthirsty unlike many of his military compatriots. "war should be the last resort".

Maybe when he gets to Hell he’ll find those weapons of mass destruction that, as part of the Bush administration, he spent years lying about.

Was Metalzoic a reprint? I thought it was published at the same time as the US version, or did I imagine that?

DC still own it, and apparently have no interest in re-releasing it or selling the rights on.

Which is a pity, since it's a great piece of work.

I mean not to be pedantic but PR can't be the solution to getting the Tories out of power, but the Tories won't pass it themselves. You do need to win a FPTP election first
You do, but how does Labour do that under current electoral maths? Scotland is lost to the SNP. Labour majorities always relied on seats there.

Yeah, that’s nonsense. All three of Tony Blair’s victories would still have happened without a single person in Scotland voting Labour.  It’s not the Scots abandoning Labour that causes Tory governments; it’s English voters voting Tory.

I think he’ll be great in the role of a guy who’s only got where he is because of who his father is.

Really quite incisive casting.

…and now valley-Psi Janus is back - someone we haven't seen since 1997's Faustus.

Deservedly so, some might say.

A character chiselled from a solid block of Deeply Irritating.

Given that most of FOUNDATION is just two or three people in a room talking, I would expect them to take plenty of liberties.

Yes, Minister, & it's successor Yes, Prime Minister, were pretty much three people talking in the same room every episode & that was some of the finest television ever. Just saying.

That’s a decades-old sitcom. Not a giant-budget modern SF drama series.  Sitcoms are three people in a room talking. Unless it’s Steptoe & Son, in which case it’s two people in a room talking.

You’re comparing two two completely different things.
