Hi,

Floyd here.  I used to practically live on this message board, but haven't checked back in since, I dunno, 2009 or thereabouts. 
   Dunno where to start really, but, ummm, hullo.  What's good with Dredd and 2000 AD stuff in general?

Floyd! Welcome back Squaxx.

Best place to start is with the latest couple of progs - get yourself back onto the hoverboard and take it from there.

(Schwarzeneggar voice) Thanks for the tip!
  (Floyd voice) good to see you again Bolt!

Are you Buttonman's arch nemesis?

Welcome back, hope you have fun. Have you dropped of the Prog and Meg completely as there's so much great stuff but as Bolt says best place to start to current Prog, or 2200 as a nice jump on and the Meg with 424 as also a jump on for its 30th maybe?

I don't think I'm anyone's arch nemesis!  Good to hear the progs are still good - I never doubted that for a moment.
   Since last being here, I've become bionic, via a metal heart valve drama, putting me in a bit of a bucket list mood.  So I've been to the UK twice and visited the Isle of Man to speak Manx, and got to meet someone from this board IRL (Gary W in Lincoln)
   I'm watching The Boys with my son now, which is pretty 2000 AD adjacent.

THE RETURN OF THE BIG SIX.

Good to have you back.

In your absence I half-heartedly tried to encourage my fellow boarders to write to Tharg under your name in a vain attempt to prevent someone from the town of Paisley becoming the most decorated Inputter ever.

We failed.

My arch nemesis is that woman who took my £40k on 15-1.

So Floyd...are you writing in again? In your absence others have profited. Not me, I don't concern myself with minor fripperies.

I also don't care for small baked goods.

Gidday, gidday, and thanks again.
  Buttonman's chart there is a thing of beauty.  I'm not writing in because I haven't been reading the progs for a bit, so my letters would have to be general in nature  (Dear Tharg, how do? It's hot here today...). 
   Nice to see some names I remember here.

Hey, some of us have been writing on these message boards for longer than a whole pile of hot new talent has been writing/drawing for the Prog!
Some names to look out for in the credits boxes:
Michael Carroll, Rory McConville, Jake Lynch, Alec Worley, Michael Dowling, Emma Beeby, Jimmy Broxton, Ian Culbard, Dave Taylor, Tiernan Trevallion...
Kek-W has come back in a BIG way, too.

Welcome back

Good to see you back, Mr. K! Nothing Tharg likes to print more than the joyous return of a prodigal, time to unbutton the episotolary stranglehold of Needy of Paisley.

: judgefloyd 31 October, 2020, 12:29:56 AM
Thank you, Tordelback, also everyone, you're all so nice! (holds back manly tear).
   Needy of Paisley is welcome to it, but I'll write a letter if I get hold of a prog and am feeling epistolatory (if that's the word).

   Needy of Paisley is welcome to it,
  :lol:  If we ever meet at at a con, remind me of this as I owe you a pint.

If we ever meet at a con, I certainly will.  I've met exactly one board person IRL, one Gary W in Lincoln.  Can't remember who bought the pints, but the pub meal was fantastic, and we toasted Tharg and the rest of you.

Why thank you!  I'll endeavour to not need moderating.
