Hi from Scotland
« on: 04 April, 2022, 09:29:15 AM »
Hi all. Long time fan, based in Edinburgh. Good to be here.

Favourite older stories:

Dredd (of course), some of my top stories being some of the usual, Judge Child, The Day the Law Died, America, Oz, The Pit, Origins, Democracy
M.A.C.H 1
Flesh
Strontium Dog
Bad Company
ABC Warriors
Halo Jones
The Mind of Wolfie Smith
Durham Red
Fiends of the Eastern Front
Rogue Trooper
Zenith

More recent favourites:

The Out
Brink
The Order

Also enjoyed some of the spin-offs (Crisis, Revolver, Tornado back in the day)

Are there any meet ups now and again for fans in Scotland?

Hi welcome on the board.
When I die, I want to die like my grandfather who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.

Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

Welcome to the board!

Interesting that you liked Tornado.  I recently (few years ago) read the whole lot as part of a prog slog, as well as Starlord.  I liked Blackhawk, Wolfie Smith and Angry Planet, but didn't really rate the rest that highly.  Did you get to read Starlord?

There's a well practiced formula:
1. pick a date well in advance, often around a convention
2. several people agree to meet
3. cancel one by one due to other commitments, until all agree to reschedule in a couple of months.


And welcome to the board!

Welcome aboard.

Dive a little deeper - all is not as it seems. "Cyber pandemic" on the way. Devices to be "quarantined" (disconnected).

Welcome aboard. Interesting to see a list of likes. We have a tournment running at the moment voting on our favourite (not Dredd) series. Many if not all of your favs are still in the running as we are deep into Round 2 (or 9) so you might have some fun playing there.

Either way have fun.

Yes indeed. Enjoyed Starlord as well (liked Ro-Busters, Timequake, and of course Strontium Dog there) ....from Tornado, quite liked Victor Drago, and Blackhawk. Sad that both only ran for 22 issues.
