I believe Colin (and perhaps the Cosh?) to be our pre-eminent Red Seas scholars

And remember there are a lot of examples in 2000ad fandom of folks saying a LOT about a subject, but not really knowing much - I figure calling me a scholar is missing that fact!

When it comes to Jack & Co, you are more than a mere dilettante.

I certainly never noticed this until just now but check out the badge names on those judges in this Fabry Dredd panel...  :lol:

I think I mentioned this on the board before.  Way over my head the first time round too.  I'm guessing it was Glenn's joke rather than John's, though we did have a Judge Lardas (fat) and Judge Peaks (big-boobed) in the Megazine.

Great spot, I never would have seen this.

Probably not - but it did give me an idea for a forum art comp entry a mere decade ago...

When SAS Sergeant Nick Stone is caught in a nuclear explosion, he finds himself catapulted into a strange stone-age world of human-animal hybrids, ruled over by tyrannical shaman Leeshar.
With the aid of Sabretooth cat-woman Liana, Direwolf-man Gruff and Arsinoitherium Q-Bone, Stone must lead the slave-like Yujees in rebellion and become... Piltdown Man!

A bit off-topic, but it's kind of something that still goes over my head... I was never quite sure how famous Dante was in his own world.  There were those porn-posters of him plastered all over the Empire (i.e. the world), and yet none of the Arbatov sisters recognised him.  Teenagers had photos of the young Dante on their walls, but those Sinister Dexter lookalikes had no idea who he was. 

Of course, everyone in the world knew his name at the end.  Just as his annoyingly cocky younger self predicted.  I heard of someone who went on a date with a pre-fame Conor McGregor, who predicted the same thing of himself, but fuck him.

If it helps at all, I've never heard of Conor McGregor until you just mentioned them.

Quoting another thread here, but..

Dredd - great story and art by Chris Weston, love the link between Rowdy Yates/Clint Eastwood/Dredd, well done Chris

Yeah, that "..well whoever he was, I owe him my life" punchline was inspired!!!! :)

That punchline went very much over my head the first time round.  Hats off to Chris Weston - for a great artist, he's a bloody good writer too.

The Krikkitmen in Life, the Universe & Everything by Douglas Adams are violently xenophobic because the rest of the Universe outside of their home nebula just isn't cricket.
