I repeat:

(As a stand-in and nothing to do with the discussion above)

it's just a generic hard man in a generic sci-fi dystopia
Yep, and the one time it threatened to do something different, it doubled down on tropes:

- Fridging the woman
- Having the male lead dream about his ex, where she’s skeletal and crumbles before him, asking don’t you love me anymore
- The child gets stolen by the bad guy
- The lead wakes up in a torture situation
- The bad guy monologues

There is potential for something original here, but the only thread that exists there would be for the lead to actually look after his baby and watch her grow—taking a cue from The Mandalorian. My guess—and I hope I’m wrong—is that she will be ditched (probably left with a previously never mentioned relative or something) by the end of this series, to revert it to status quo.

That about sums it up for me. While The Order seems to be a sprawling, timey-winey epic that has continued passed its natural conclusion, something I find 2K doing a fair bit now, aiming for the TPB market?

Just found out that Forces TV are showing the classic 1997 series The Man from Atlantis staring Patrick Duffy on the weekends with 2 episodes each day

Wasn't that a lot earlier than 1997 - it was before he was in Dallas wasn't it... or am i getting confused?

Then he stepped out of the shower....

Similar up here:


Hopefully regular jobs and a slow down of the talent drain...

Wider shots of shelves, please!

And, honestly, I will add mine. I just need to find an image-hosting solution that isn't blocked by my work laptop. Then the basement of thrills, the Fortress of Zarjazity, will be revealed. :)

Mine too! The three spines look a bit wonky when added together - but otherwise a glorious book!

The blurb:

One of the major highlights of the controversial 1970s comic, Action, Major Kurt Hellman is a Panzer commander in the 1940 German invasion of Belgium. But this man is no Nazi - he avoids taking life wherever possible, all while facing foes without and treachery within!

Collected for the first time, and from the very beginning, this groundbreaking series of thrilling combat is written by Gerry Finley-Day (Rogue Trooper) and drawn by Mike Dorey (Ro-Busters)

There are more books and comics than that, but they're over on the bedside cabinet waiting to be read, including the rest of Corto Maltese among others.

Phew I was about to berate you for being so behind - good to hear the rest are waiting to be read. That's a pretty nice set up and a tidy collection you got going there.

Must update the nerdcave thread at some point as there's been changes since I first set that up.

Pics please

A great showman hero who helps out the starving kids and the dispossessed, who remembers where he came from and fights injustice, couldn't happen in the real world could it?

Regarding black people specifically participating in ww2, I found this article:

What an inspiring article, would love to see what Garth Ennis would make of that...

You get one dizzy....

Has anyone explained why this is getting released in such thin volumes? It's a major series in British comics history and I can't understand why it's not being collected along similar lines to The Trigan Empire, Charley's War, The Spider, etc.

This ^^^

I've just got the 1st one and it is a thing of beauty, a collected hardback would be even nicer but.

I also agree, its a waste not to have Anderson ageing. I feel like there is a great story to be told in her coming to terms with losing her youthful good looks.
I would hope if they ever do fully address Anderson’s age and actually make her look her age, they’d move beyond the hackneyed and played out angle of a woman losing her looks. I don’t recall Anderson as ever having been especially bothered about that anyway.

You're quite right. I phrased that badly. I meant, there is a some good stories to be mined from an older/wiser Anderson.

Just hoping: Anderson, The menopause years!  involves some judicial retribution!
