News / Sci-Fi Special 2018 - Cover
« on: 08 June, 2018, 02:01:50 PM »
Was going to resurrect the previous thread, but it turned out to be filled with pages of pestilence and bile so here's a new one.

No idea who Tula Lotay is, but that's an absolutely cracking cover.

Classifieds / Comics for sale: Northlanders & Hellblazer
« on: 11 May, 2018, 11:07:08 AM »
Got done other stuff I'm trying to find a home for.

Northlanders. Full set of all 8 (or 9, I forget) trades.

Hellblazer. The full original Garth Ennis run. Think that's 41 -82 roughly.

Not looking for much for these but postage might be hefty so let's call it 15 quid for each.

Classifieds / Boxes of free Megazines in Glasgow
« on: 13 February, 2018, 01:24:37 PM »
Anybody out there interested in a pile of JD Megazines for the princely sum of nothing? Or a bottle of wine, which is roughly what I paid for the first 250 of them!

I think I have issues 1 - 340 or so. Three or four magazine boxes full anyway.

If you come and pick them up from my house in the south of Glasgow, you can even keep the boxes.

Only catch is it really needs to be this week.

Everybody else was starting a thread with the same title and I didn't want to feel left out.

Website and Forum / IP Blocking
« on: 03 May, 2017, 11:01:50 AM »
How's it going web droids? I've been having a lot of issues with the site since the last upgrade to the shop. Now it looks like you're blocking my home IP address.

I can't even access the forum from any device, but once I connect to my work remote network, everything is hunky dory. As an interesting(ish) sidebar to this, the 2000AD shop is blacklisted when I'm actually in the office but, under these circumstances, it's also fine!

If someone on your side can help, I can send the IP details.

Cheers, Cosh.

Website and Forum / Massive Prog price increase in iOS app?
« on: 22 February, 2017, 03:15:23 PM »
Hi guys. Like it says in the title. A few weeks ago I noticed that the price of digital Progs has gone way up in the iOS app. At first I just assumed this was just a general price rise. Then I finally bothered to check and I see that I'm paying 10% more for a digital prog than the physical cover price. It's gone up to £2.99 from £2.29, compared to £2.65 in WH Smiths.

What's going on? Surely that's not how this is supposed to work?

Games / Are there bigger issues in the WH40K Universe?

Seems PETA's corporate projects manager has finally engaged with one of the biggest offenders in the world of fantasy wargaming.

An open letter to Games Workshop.

News / Galaxy's Greatest: 40 Years of 2000AD

Spotted this in the recent Previews and it sounds like a winner and an exciting new entry in the evergreen "what to recommend a new reader" threads.

Droids past and present introduce their favourite one-offs.

I'm back and I mean business.

Prog / Prog 1996 - Fatherland
« on: 27 August, 2016, 11:22:43 AM »
The familiar thump on the doorstep propelled me out of bed.

A mean and moody cover from Paul Davidson which my first, sleep-addled glance mistook for the return of Ian Gibson. Most of the stories are in mid-flow so it's all about where they're going.

This most excellent of Dredd stories continues apace as our hero once again outwits Justice Department's finest. With all the extra little bits being brought in I've no idea how this will be wrapped up in three short episodes. As some readers already commented about previous episodes, this is the best Carlos art for years as well.

More spectacular D'Israeli art in Scarlet Traces. This seems to have turned into a whistle-stop tour of Edginton's Venus without much plot to drive it but the stops along the way are interesting.

The unexpected and very welcome return of Jaegir gives us a quick recap and sets the scene for some very different adult-child relationships to come.

Scarlet Traces continues.

I'm a bit lost about who is controlling who in Anderson but it's been a strong story so far so I hope it can end well.

Website and Forum / Question about currency settings in Rebellion Portal
« on: 09 August, 2016, 03:27:57 PM »
Hi web dudes. Hope you can help out here.

I was looking at the digital subscriptions available through the Rebellion Portal but it seems to want to set the currency/price based on my location rather than my account billing address and it doesn't look like there is anywhere for me to set this option in the account settings.

At home, it defaults to EUR and in the office it's USD. In both cases, this is wrong. If it was picking up my location correctly it should be CHF, but I would've expected it to be GBP, like the 2000ad shop, based on my billing details.

Should I just figure out which is cheapest for me and do it from there?

Off Topic / Weird things you have in your desk drawer at work
« on: 29 July, 2016, 03:48:27 PM »
Was trying to find a pen with some wet ink in it and came out with a chain link remover and a hacksaw instead. My job is developing financial planning software.

How about you? Before anyone tries it, doublers of football stickers aren't weird.

NB Can also be at home if you don't work in an office (or your glove compartment if you're a driver, I suppose) but lets try and keep it out of the bedroom, eh?

Music / Who wouldn't want an LP filled with Xenomorph blood?

Idiots, that's who.

It mostly comes out on Tuesday. Mostly.

Games / PS4 hard drive upgrade
« on: 09 April, 2016, 10:58:32 AM »
So, has anyone out there bought a basic PS4 and fitted a larger hard drive themselves? From what I've read, it's just a bog standard off the shelf number which shouldn't pose any problems. Or should I just suck it in and pay the extra?

Books & Comics / Trigan Empire (again)
« on: 11 March, 2016, 12:52:03 PM »
So, I've never read any of this and it pops up every so often with people bemoaning the exorbitant prices. Is there a specific problem or rights issue which keeps it out of print? Or are there just not enough people interested in it?

The main reason I ask is because Panini started a new German edition towards the end of last year and it's already up to a fourth volume (they're shorter, Cinebooks-sized) so it seems a bit wild that they wouldn't try an English one.
