'Plough Feg'-

Chortle! Good one, eh, readers? A Joycean play on words if ever there was one, if I do say so myself.

'I remember drawing an hilarious drawing of Halo Jones dog as a little ceramic man clutching a mug wearing a three pointed hat.

It was entitled "Toby Jug". '

That's nothing, compared to the comic genius of a drawing I had planned to send in. To the detriment of the human race, I never drew it, but it was going to feature the Lord Weird, tied to the back of a tractor, his horns raking furrows through the soil. And before we move on to the bonus round, what was it going to be called? Say what you see, say what you see... You've said everything BUT the right answer...

I say 'Jayzus Christ' a lot, and my name begins with 'B'. The icon has nothing to do with the name, it was actually supposed to be Sabbat's head - I was beginning to write and draw a story about it but then someone came up with nearly exactly the same idea as an April Fool's joke on this board.  So there you go.

'Less fortunately, he was replaced with the equally silly sounding Judge Markimarkov. '

Are you sure? I remember Markimarkov (and the Funki Komrades), alright, but I don't remember him taking Traktorfaktori's position.

'Watt Le Fung, 'Peeper' prog 491.'
Watt le Fung! Nice one. Possibly inspired by a similar-sounding exlamation of amazed confusion? I always thought so. Earl Lacewing was a good name, too. And best name in years appeared in the last Strontium Dog story - Omar B. Badaddy (if I remember correctly, which I don't think I do)

Yeah, I wasn't too thrilled about that, because he was the Supreme Judge of East-Meg 2 and therefore no story about said city or Supreme Judge could ever be taken seriously while he lived. Fortunately, he died. Another Sov judge was called Marki Brylkreem - now that doesn't even SOUND Russian. I think it's all Garth Ennis's fault. Anyway, anyone remember that peeper's name?

Bollix. I remembered a great name from Judge Dredd this morning and now I've forgotten it. What about Karl Heinzpilchardsintomatosauceclayderman, though? ANyway, I've just remembered who the character whose name I've forgotten actually was - a peeper who was caught by Dredd and signed up to the justice department. Can someone refresh my ever-decreasing memory?

Sound. Now...
I wonder if John Wagner knows about the scale of Dave Stone's vision of Brit-Cit? It's bleeding ace, it is. The civil war, the Overlords rebuilding the country and employing the judges, the same overlords installing cautionary explosives in the city's infrastructure, the dodgy deals between judges and crime bosses, the Dragon, the business sector what's name I forget, the legality of caffeine, the gangs who graft fingers and faces onto their bodies.
Yes, I've just re-read 'Deathmasques', and while there are dodgy bits (Dredd talks weird; also the phrase 'simple expedient' is repeated almost every chapter), there really is an incredible amount of imagination put into Brit-Cit's backstory. Wagner's Brit-Cit often just seems like a smaller Mega-City 1.
Pity about what Garth Ennis did to my side of the Irish Sea, but that's another story.

Funny this thread should come up, because I've just been reading the relatively recent Prog 1196 and found a letter from Si Spurrier slagging the living bejaysus out of Pat Mills' then-current offerings - 'It's like using 80-year-old models on page 3 because "they looked good when they were twenty"'. Also, the 'sad thing is that the readership is chock-full of young talent bursting with ideas.' Snakey one, Si - encourage a cull of old writers and bag yourself a job, eh? Eh, Si? Eh?

Point taken, Castleknock is not as posh as Killiney, Dalkey etc., and maybe Colin Farrell really does talk like that. Just practising the standard Irish begrudgery of success which is my God-given right. While I'm not totally convinced by his bad-boy druggy image, he's a bloody good actor and stole the show in Daredevil. And I've met the bloke who shot him in 'Intermission'. Also, I'm genuinely curious - was Bullseye Irish in the comics? I only read the Frank Miller graphic novel, and can't remember it.

I thought Daredevil was painfully predictable; apart from Electra's death. Colin Farrell was good though. Anyone here from Ireland, however, knows he's from the poshest part of Dublin and learned his 'rough-and-ready-Northsider' accent somewhere in Hollywood. Is Bullseye really meant to be Irish, by the way? Never really read the comics.
I was impressed by Spiderman 2, though. Never saw Spiderman 1, but I read the comics as a kid. Jonah Jameson was excellent in the film.
