Meat Loaf was one of those few artists who managed to be so good and memorable in their works that they became known to everyone, regardless of musical taste or age. Even my Mum mentioned him passing, and she's 79 and exclusively listens to Richard Clayderman and Pan-Pipes!

RIP Meat Loaf, you utter legend x

I'm guessing he forgot - understandable considering when he awoke he'd been made a slave by a supposedly noble group of sand people, and his armour was nowhere to be seen.

I'd rather know just how his spaceship works - how exactly does it manage to hover and turn about just a few meters from the ground, when it's thrusters are fixed in one position?

Superb Woolly is that drawn on a tablet or on paper? If on paper what size?

The black/white/grey works so well.

Thank you! All digital that one :)

[edit] - It gets bigger if you click on it (fnarr)

Don't remember if I ever posted this one...

A quick Dredd using Clint Eastwood as the ref for the chin.

Considering he's survived being ship-wrecked and nearly blown up, JBC is like this forum's equivalent of Nikolai Dante -  he's just too cool to kill!

Hope you and your folk's get better soon, Jayzus. All the best!

I *think* I've said this before, but it would be very agreeable if Rebellion would make the end of year progs available in hardback, through the webshop, at an inflated print on demand price. And, further, to eventually make *all* the previous similar 100 pagers available in the same format. Perhaps with a new, special, spine calling it the 'yearbook' etc. I know it's spectacularly nerdy and completist, but I'd certainly free up a shelf for them all- even if they were around £20 a throw.


An annual sized, hardback version of the xmas prog?

*Absolutely* sold!

Spider-Man No Way Home.
Well that's gone straight into my top ten of all time.

TIL that in 1970 the US Govt enacted the RICO act: the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.

Could this have been an influence in naming a certain clone?

I'd really like it if film directors could be brilliant and also not be complete pieces of shit.

George Miller is by all accounts a good 'un.
As was Richard Donner.

The print version is now available to pre order on getmycomics.com (release date November 27th 2021) for £ 11.99 +£2P+Por the signed edition for £14.99 +£2 P+P

Just received Roger Langridge's new book, ordered direct from his Hotel Fred website. Hardback was £15 plus P+P. Signed hardback? £15 plus P+P - and a sketch inside too.

You were lucky! When I read it, it was £5.99 just to read it digitally through a rolled-up newspaper...

Has to be said though, he's really not a fan of yours is he?!?  :o

RE: The Twilight Zone

Spielberg, Kathleen Kennedy, and Frank Marshall (all producers on the film) must have known what was going on in regards to the under-the-table dealings with the child actors.
The parents of the two children were assured that there would be no explosions on set, as were the casting agents.
The children were hidden when safety inspectors visited the set on the day of the shoot, and the helicopter pilot (Dorcey Wingo, a vietnam veteran) was supposedly hired as it was thought he'd be more likely to follow Landis' orders without questioning them. (Landis also reportedly made crewmen climb scaffolding to repair lights while the helicopter was hovering nearby, calling them 'chickensh*t' if they refused).

So while Landis is clearly responsible here (although the courts somehow aquitted him), I find it unbelievable that Spielberg et al would claim to have had no knowledge of the underhand dealings, or the lack of safety on set.
The fact that Spielberg instantly distanced himself from Landis appears to be more about deflecting any personal involvement in this, as opposed to trying to prove the crew/Director weren't responsible.

One last thing - one crew member originally reported that Spielberg was on set when the accident occurred. He then changed his mind and said it may have been Frank Marshall. Make of that what you will.

Yeah, Sudden Impact is pretty awful.
Always makes me wish that The Gauntlet was a Dirty Harry film instead.
