Messages - O Lucky Stevie!

When Slaine is good it is brilliant.But it ain't no Nemesis the Warlock.

It took Stevie nigh a decade of reading the prog for John & Carlos's other signature character, Old Stony Face, to click with him. Yet Strontium Dog won him over in about 4 or 5 pages.

Strontium Dog it is.

Giving the creators the rights to Big Dave to Morrison, Parkhouse & Millar also released Fleetway from any obligation to publish the completed strip Sharon's Big Night Out that was deemed too offensive for the Sci Fi Special.

It's curious how, when Pat began collaborating with an actual practioner of magick, the occult elements in the strips became so mundane. Tony Skinner was no Alan Moore or Grant Morrison. The Ickean stuff feels like low-hanging fruit  & as such a poor substitute for the Cythron cosmology of Slaine. The whole thing is achingly adolescent.

And XTNCT + the less memorable Pan-African Judges

Yes! TBH, I was just thinking of what he'd done since becoming far better known as a Dr Who writer.

I bet that he's relieved that nobody recalls Blackadder Deathwatch in the Meg.

Does Stevie remember Zip Nolan? Absolutely. Being the least fantastical strip in Lion, it was resolutely little Stevie's least favourite.

Give it a regened, Mega-City reboot, you say? From the perspective of an older squaxx: sounds fun so yes please! Make the cadets clone sisters for the win.

A reprint of the original to allow a reappraisal wouldn't go astray either.

Blimey. Talk about thing that a squaxx hasn't thought about since the 1970s. It's not a strip that looms as large in memory of this avid Lion reader as Adam Eterno, Mowser, Robot Archie, Spellbinder, The Steel Commando, personal favourite Sark the Sleeper, or the dreaded Zip Nolan. What does spring in mind is that neither Dort nor any of his titular 10,000 disasters felt sufficiently sfnal to hold this five year old's attention. But then again, both Invasion & Dredd were subsequently met with similar disinterest.

Art by Jose Ortiz? SOLD.

News / Battle Action returns as original graphic novel.

"Garth Ennis, Kevin O'Neill and more revive Action for 2000 AD with Battle Action Special, a 96-page hardcover original graphic novel.

"2000AD bringing back the controversial British comic series Action.

"The newly titled Battle Action Special is a 96-page hardcover original graphic novel featuring eight new stories, all written by The Boys co-creator Garth Ennis. He's joined by artists Kevin O'Neill, Keith Burns, Mike Dorey, John Higgins, Chris Burnham, Patrick Goddard and PJ Holden, as well as colorists Jason Wordie, Len O'Grady and Sally Jane Hurst.

"The original Action debuted in 1976 and was published by IPC Magazines. Created by Pat Mills, Mike Dorey and more, the series was notable for putting its own unique spin on classic action stories like Jaws. It also helped pave the way for more adult comic titles, like the aforementioned 2000 AD and the books published under DC's Vertigo Comics imprint.

"Take to the skies with artist Keith Burns and colourist Jason Wordie, and witness the air duel of the century as ace fighter pilot Johnny Red faces off against Skreamer of the Stukas.

"Infamous German tank commander Hellman of Hammer Force bears down on American Colonel Glory Rider in Tunisia, drawn by the legendary Mike Dorey (Ro-Busters).

"Blunt instrument of British Intelligence Dredger returns and takes no prisoners on the streets of 1980s London, courtesy of Watchmen colourist and Judge Dredd artist John Higgins, with co-colours by Sally Jane Hurst.

"Take on the selfish but fearless Crazy Keller by Chris Burnham (Batman) and colours by Len O’Grady, and meet Nina Petrova, the scourge of the Eastern Front, with art by Patrick Goddard (Judge Dredd) and colours by Jason Wordie.

"And roll out into Italy in the heat of 1944 with The Sarge as Ennis reunites with The Stringbags artist PJ Holden.

"Battle Action Special goes on sale in June from 2000 AD before arriving in traditional bookstores in September.
