A belated RIP for both Neal Adams and George Perez.
Two masters of this thing we love.

Depressing cart from my standpoint, mind. For me, Gremlin was all about the 8-bits: Monty Mole; Jack the Nipper; Trailblazer. And on Amiga, Lotus, Super Cars and Switchblade were tops.

They will surely release another volume - hopefully it ticks a few off your Gremlin wish-list.

As a complete aside - would you have any background knowledge on the commercial success or otherwise of the Evercade, IP?
I really dig what they are doing, and have even bought some cartridges I have little interest in just to support the endeavour.

Bogie Man for me - with an Old Fashioned on the rocks.

i am second guessing myself....is that terror tale that was mentioned an old scream castoff? or is it just a homage to scream?

I'd have to see the pic of Tharg which Conrad mentions before weighing in with my opinion.  Seems quite a way after Scream! folded to dig the story out of the slush pile though.

Typing blind here, as I don't listen to the podcast (sorry), but if I recall correctly, the initial run of (four) Terror Tales all had a sign-off image of a skeletonized Tharg's head - could have been a Scream homage, or just a quirky way to differentiate the series from yer standard Future Shocks.

The image in question was drawn by Paul Marshall* (as was the series banner), in "Vintage Marshall" style.
I actually attempted to buy the original art for it from Paul several years ago, but he no longer had it.

*With the exception of the one drawn by Mick Austin himself at the end of his Terror Tale in Prog 840.

I really hope they start doing minifig-scale TF sets as well. If Hasbro can recognise the advantage on working with Lego, that’s got to be a good thing.

The effect on sales would be like 3D printing Energon Cubes from Zero Point Energy.

€169.99; Transform, and roll out! (*of my wallet)


I like both, but;

Necronauts for me - unique, memorable, didn't outstay its welcome

Mazeworld walks this one.

Missed the vote, but it would have been for Tribal Memories.

That'll be THE BEST OF 2000AD SPECIAL EDITION 1993. A passion project, had to persuade powers that be it was worth doing. Some absolute corkers in that, and the 94 Special Edition.

Still have the '93 Special Edition - great comic.
Googled the '94 Special Edition - don't recall it, and don't think I've seen it before.

Damn, missed a coupla good votes last week.
Would have Plinked for Brigand Doom.

In 1987/8 Marvel UK produced a short-lived 'Inspector Gadget' comic - I've updated my covers gallery but still have a couple of gaps to fill


Had or at least read a couple of those!
I think it was the only cartoon myself and my sisters could agree to watch together in a 1980's single TV household.

That nostalgia led to a purchase of the very addictive game on the iPad years ago - at one point in 2011 I had the third highest score on the planet. 😆

I'll be happy if either get through, but my fingers seemingly cannot type a vote against a Mills & O'Neill series.


Lenny Zero.

Smug? Maybe.
Witty? Yeah.
Entertaining? Hell yeah.
