I like to pretend that the 'far future' version of Red never happened. She's one of my fave characters and I just did not like that at all.

Musta been a miserable decade for you so.  :)

I did enjoy it, and found the concept to my liking.
Much preferred the 'Shoulda been in 2000AD' Cla$$war though...

Happy Birthday dude.
Can we assume the fact you're 40 is why you're 'a Bastard with no manners'????

Help! / Re: My Name is Death - what happened to Anderson?
« on: 31 May, 2012, 12:08:31 PM »
We last see Anderson in a coma, then she turns up in the Megazine fighting robot city blocks. What did I miss, and where was it?

This is all off the top of my head, but basically - Anderson believes she's a young girl living on Deadworld, pre-purges (I want to say Sandra?). She meets Sidney De'ath at her school and is suitably creeped out by the strange young man for reasons she can't put her finger on. Years go by and the reign of the Judges becomes increasingly brutal and oppressive. Sandra's now at college and heavily involved in a freedom fighting band of guirellas. A mission goes horribly wrong and she meets Sidney again, now a Judge, at the same time as he meets still-human Phobia and Nausea and a sorry sub-human acolyte and whipping boy they've infected with what's called a Half-Life virus. Anderson finally remembers who she really is, as well as Death and the Sisters, and forces herself out of the dream-world - but not out of the coma, and not alone...

Back in the real world, a team of Psi-judges are sent into her mind to see if they can jolt her awake (think Fantastic Voyage type-thing). They battle with various creepy Death-influenced imagery and find her mind's infected with the Half-life, who I think was some sort of pyshic-bomb type deal deliberately left in Anderson's mind by the Sisters. Various adventures see them defeat Half Life, find Anderson and wake up back in Psi-Division. Unbenownst to any of them one of the crew, the shifty Gistane, was infected with the Half-Life virus, and he reports to his creepy boss Fauster, (head of the rather brilliant Magic and Witchcraft sub-department) a merry chap who likes to spend his free time reading the future in animal entrails. The department's a bit of a joke even within Psi-Div, but Fauster's got bigger plans in mind...

The next few stories saw Fauster torturing and browbeating an increasingly skeletal and gibbering Gistane in an attempt to harness the power of the Half-Life virus. Fauster's soon locked Gistane away in a basement, gone completely power-mad and eventually causes the release of the virus, which causes a wave of mass murders and suicides across the city (completely ignored in Dredd, natch). Anderson's had her suspicions for a while and steps in to avert disaster before the whole of the city is infected, in the process exorcising her own doubts about whether she's fit for the duty after the whole Death/coma expierience. The virus is destroyed and Fauster locked up. Anderson takes a 'fitness for active duty assessment' but it's really only a matter of course - Psi-Div's premier operative is back on the streets.

Cheers for the re-cap Dark Jimbo, I had genuinely- genuinely- forgotten all that nonsense.
After reading it I kinda wish I had contracted the Half-Life virus.  :)

Doom Patrol is good- really bloody good.
I havent enjoyed a Morrison penned tale as much since Zenith (and maybe JLA 'Rock of Ages').
Now all I gotta do is track down a small fortunes worth of TPBs to finish his run. Gruddamn it.

You know what Cactus, I've read every issue between these stories, and I haven't the foggiest.
Anderson has been genuinely forgettable for years.
'My name is Death' was probably the last time the peroxide headed harridan featured in a decent story.
Sorry dude.

Wha are yis all loike suckin up ta Roger Godcomplex???
Dis is de kinda Brit-huggin nonsense that most oirish fellas shudda had bred outta dem by der mammies.
Dis man hates our feckin contrary, and wohrst of all hates de Fassbender. I implore yis ta boycott his posts forthwit.

The art ain't brilliant, but I've seen worse. Even in our favourite publication. Recently enough.
Good art or not, I probably wouldn't be too into this comic.
Amusingly, I've just read on Bleedingcool that this is top of the charts on iBooks. What do we know, eh?

One final point RE IDW interior art- Gabriel Rodriguez is for my money one of the top 5 comic book artists currently working in the business.

Definately - but you ideally need to have read the first two Nemesis phonebooks (and the first ABC book) for it to really make sense.

2 for the price of 1 today:

1) My girlfriend- "That Kings of Leon DVD you're looking for is going cheap in HMV". I told her I wasn't really that into the Kings of Leon.  We argued for about half an hour. Turns out she meant 'Sons of Anarchy'.

2) (For Irish boarders only). My sister- "Is Wexford in Wicklow?"

They shall therefore remain sealed in their Woodies DIY 'encasement of preservation'.
Who knows, the way things are going on the Emerald Isle, they may just have to be sold off to pay the bills before the next nostalgia upswing by those future kidults!

Based on a personal favourite opinion, I'd recommend 'ABC Warriors: The Black Hole'.
Arguably (as in- there is no argument!) it's also the Warriors' finest hour.

A lot of partials alright GD, but some complete minis as you point out.
I googled his run on Doom Patrol after buying the 16 issues. Holy sh!t, he was writing that book until issue 63!
I'm actually half glad it wasn't the full run- even at €0.79 an issue, that woulda been a sizeable chunk of change spent.

American Gods is great, my favourite Gaiman novel. He's planning a sequel to it and there is a TV series in development too.

Love American Gods too. I told Gaiman at a signing that I was once stuck in Manchester airport for a whole day, and devoured the entire book. It quite literally kept me from going insane.
His quite cool reply; "Of course, that's the reason I wrote it".

Hadn't heard about the sequel, nice.

Do you collect em Tordleback?
I've got a stash somewhere...all those released in the late 90's, still boxed.
Any worth digging up? I've got a pretty cool sculpt Boba Fett somewhere, that Princess Leia that was hard to get at the time, and all those 'Shadows of the Empire' ones too.
