Other Reviews / Re: Guatemala

I agree on the Cal story being weak especially out of context (it was in a centenary special Prog 2000) It was nice to collect as much Wagner Dredd as possible as well as Ezquerra's final stuff. I think that's the way I judged it - rather than the stories being related to Guatemala.

Suggestions / Re: Could we have a 2000AD 45th Anniversary bash?
« on: 16 June, 2021, 02:47:54 PM »

The 40th event was literal lightning in a bottle - I cannot see it being replicated in future years due to the absence of creators and fans we have since lost, and those we could possibly lose before the 50th.

I'd be willing to have a 45th with Kev O'Neil and Brian Bolland in attendance. They were obvious omissions. I agree 6 years is along time so I'd accept an event at an earlier year even if the centenary wasnt as prestigious...

Suggestions / Could we have a 2000AD 45th Anniversary bash?
« on: 14 June, 2021, 11:05:04 PM »
I know this is highly unlikely to be near the top of anyone's agenda
But is there a way to put on a 45th bash maybe by bringing in a partner company (who may run an existing type of convention)

My thinking is that it really did seem to bring old reader's back in to the fold.
And frankly the 50th seems such a long way.

I know it's a 'no' but maybe with a partner who was willing to take it on?

I got my book this week
Really nicely protected - highly recommended.

Suggestions / What if the Megazine had a different remit?
« on: 03 June, 2021, 03:46:39 PM »
So this week 2000AD ended up this week with three Dredd-world strips.
I didn't mind but online this concentration was greeted with a resounding "But that is the job of the Meg"

So what if the remit of the Megazine was changed. And it featured old-school 'classic' characters set in their prime continuity. So more Rogue Trooper (a la Cinnabar) or Zombo or Nikolai Dante adapted from the novels.
Anything goes but old-school characters in new stories.

And then 2000AD is Dredd with the new world stories. The Brinks. Feral & Foe. So unchanged.
Would this attract more than 50% numbers to the Meg?

PM'd you...

Suggestions / It's time for the Summer Offensive: Complete Edition
« on: 25 April, 2021, 08:55:06 PM »
Dear Tharg
I've made many suggestions with no acknowledgement. Big Dave says 98.7% of 2000AD readers would enjoy a Mark Millar edited collection of Purgatory + Inferno and all the Summer Offensive stories with a new art bookplate by Steve Parkhouse and Steve Yeowell with Big Dave and Maniac 5 in the pub.

Compile it with all the excesses of the 90s so maybe the failed 90s advertising campaign, the Loaded Dredd cover and a repro of both SEX issues.

Tharg you know it makes sense. And thanks for the chat.

Suggestions / Print-on-demand Dust Jackets for the Hachette books
« on: 19 April, 2021, 05:04:58 PM »

Hachette are no longer allowing new subscribers to 2000AD as they dont have early books
I'd buy a lot of the books but the spine image looks ugly unless you have the full set

Sell Dust Jackets that have the title on the spine.
I'd buy Dominion, Insurrection and the Nemesis ones if this was the case. Heck put me down for Dante in HC.

Suggestions / A different type of combi-subscription... (read on)
« on: 18 April, 2021, 10:07:56 PM »
i prefer to read the print versions of 2000ad and the Meg
i like getting them early and I decide which tpbs I'll buy. So now Megatropoils and Dreadnoughts are on my list.

But I haven't got the space to keep 52 progs and 13 megs a year.

I know Rebellion don't want to offer a combi Print & Digital subscription simultaneously, so how about this...
A physical subscription that offers you Digital versions at the end of the calendar year
So you read all year the physical copies and then in the full knowledge that at year end you will get Digital versions, you can either keep or share the physical copies.

No-one has enough room for 45 years worth of progs & megs. It's now more than a rooms worth. I would pay Physical + £2 extra a month for this option.

Both Dave Taylor and Kenneth are relatively accessible. So also Higgins & Mike Carroll
So could we have a signed and even sketched edition?
It's a pretty cool package so maybe worthy of a bookplate of each.

Hi Rob

I suspect because this short run of books was in practice a way to assert copyright.
Marvel had done a very similar thing for Marvelman.

Uncontested this then paved the way to print more in a mass market edition.
Just a guess on my part...
