well, it is all different isn't it?

we fear change!!

Anyway, I'll be fighting with the old message block!!

General / Is Viktor dead?
« on: 07 February, 2002, 03:43:16 PM »
Okay, so we saw him lying in the snow with blood coming from his mouth, but...

Let's look at the evidence...

He turned into a bird.  We know this 'cos we see his imprint in the snow.  So, presumably he turned into a bird but too late to fly away.  However, he would surely have had time to slow himself down a little but?

He has a weapons's crest.  So if he is still alive, even a little bit, then he can start to regenerate.

Just 'cos we saw him lying there, doesn't mean he didn't get up and walk away again.

If Konstantin can live through crashing the Potemkin then Viktor can live through falling out of a window.

but presumably he gets paid more for fully painted?  Can 2000AD not afford his best stuff?

Kronikles was a mixture of very good and very bad.

The art was very good.  (Why doesn't Kev Walker do painted art anymore, I way prefer that to his Chris-Blythe-coloured stuff)

The story had it's moments.

"I am not fit to lick the toe jam from your trainers!"

One of my fave comic lines ever.

Anyway, I wouldn't like the ABC warriors to be done, cos I doubt they could get the voices right, and it would ruin them.

i say kill the old man

he's past it!!!

Suggestions / I wonder if this board could have a different format?
« on: 28 January, 2002, 08:16:40 PM »
Is there a good reason that this board has the format that it does?

I reckon that an infopop board would be better, so that the popular threads stay at the top.

Is there some technical reason why this would be bad?

Or would it be more expensive for some obscure reason that I don't understand?

I just find the page layout a bit of a nuisance is all, and it is hard to see where the most recen posts have been.

Also, with the board as it is now, you have to open each response individually rather than just scrolling down.  Surely that creates more page views and therefore takes greater bandwidth and is therefore more expensive?

Website and Forum / Re: word of the sword people...

what have the sword people got to do with it Floyd?  who arethey and why is the word important?

btw, yeah, that story was excellent.

General / Have any of you bought any 2000AD original artwork?
« on: 28 January, 2002, 08:04:27 PM »
I bought a page of Nikolai Dante from "The Battleship Potemkin".  I haven't actually seen it yet 'cos it is with my folks in England, but I am proud of it anyway.  My folks say it is good.

I tried to buy some stuff from Carl Critchlow (esp. some old Thrud stuff) but unfortunately he didn't want to sell any.

I'd love to won some Bisley or Ezquerra, or even some of the comparitively more recent artists. (Flint/Irving/Burns/Siku)
What I would really love though is some Katsuhiro Otomo.  I believe I have mentioned before that I love the page where Tetsuo kills Yamagata in Akira.  I'd LOVE to own that.

Not a bad idea.

And they can ceratinly afford it.  They told me yesterday that they are bringing 3000 quid spending money when they visit me in March!!

For two weeks!!!

3000 quid!!!

That is 2 months wages for me!!

(well, for them too, but that isn't the point)

3000 quid!!

I live in Miyazaki, which is the easternmost prefecture (read "county") of Kyushu, the southernmost of the four main islands.  My prefecture is the poorest in the countryside and is regarded as "countryside" by those who live here, and "backwards" by those who don't

I am learning to speak the language.  I pnly started 6 months ago, but most people are very impressed by my progress.  I can buy and order  stuff and order food in a restaurant and have a short conversation, not discuss anything in depth though.

I have started reading a few Japanese comics in the original Japanese as study (Generally with the English version next to me though!)

I forgot to mention, Tharg wrote the letter personally and blamed the Dictators of Zrag.

Lovely letter.

Thoroughly nice guy that Tharg.

Down with all Zraggian Dictators!!

General / I got my letter published but no toy *sad*
« on: 28 January, 2002, 07:02:35 PM »
I got my letter published a few weeks back (The short one saying Couch Potatoes was possibly the funniest ever Dredd strip), but I got no toy.

I live in Japan but gave my folks mailling address in Kent for the toy, but they got a bunch of photos instead.

Apparently the photos are pretty cool with some wicked artwork, but I WANT MY TOY *WWWWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH*

Plus I won't get to see them 'til my folks visit at the end of March.

It takes someone with a very wrong mind to imagine Dredd in bed with anyone.

But Scojo, to imgaine TWO Dredds in bed with a fit bird - you must really be wrong in the head.

Sorry to be mean, but it is true!!  

General / Another (fantastic) Dredd/Rico plot possibility
« on: 28 January, 2002, 06:30:54 PM »
Okay, big mega-epic - as normal.  (The actual epic itself is unimportant, but it must involve both Rico and Dredd)

Towards end of mega-epic - Dredd takes one in the heart and all other major organs - body is dying even with major life support.

Dredd slips in and out of Coma as Rico solves mega-epic.  Dredd says:  "Looks like I AM replaceable."

Rico goes out to finish off bad guys - gets shot in head as he wins.  Slips into coma.  Dredd gets his brain transplanted into his PERFECT CLONE BODY, that will not reject him, and continues as before.  (Except for a few interesting plot twists involving Anderson and Rico's spirit inside Dreddy's mind)

The shot in the face bit even gives him a reason to still keep the lid on, just like now due to the horrendous disfigurement to the face.

Of course, they could just grow him a clone body anyway, and forget about Rico, but I guess that would take time to create a stable clone, and time ain't on dreddy's side is it?

Laugh?  Oh I couldn't stop.

Maybe they should do that as a pish take story and then have someone wake up from a dream and say "weird!"

Perhaps some artistic fan could do it?

Or it seems like just the thing for prog2003
