I'm really jealous of you. You're such a good writer.

www.doctorwho.co.uk
is Big Finish's big news page. It was updated today (30-5) and has the release dates for the next couple of stories, the next cover, and casting details (including who plays Drago). Thought you might be interested.

General / Down To Earth
« on: 30 May, 2002, 02:30:34 PM »
I got up this morning feeling rather down in the mouth - things aren't going to well at work. I made myself a cupper, flicked through the G2, and then sorted through the mail. And what did I find? Tucked away in the adverts and circulars was a familiar padded white envelope.

Big Finish have come up trumps this time and released 'Down To Earth' a week early. Now I've got something to do this morning that'll cheer me up no end. See, it pays to buy from their web-site.

General / Dredd Plus - The collection?
« on: 17 May, 2002, 04:52:39 AM »
Anybody think a collection of the stories in which Dredd meets another character from the mag would be a good thing?

There's 'Top Dogs' in which Dredd faces off against Johnny and Wulf. 'Hammerstein' which requires no explanation. Prog 900 had a 28(?) tale with Rogue Trooper. Together they make about 90 pages. They could add in the Devlin Waugh story 'Brief Encounter' or something like that.

Maybe they could also have little bios of the characters. It might boost sales on the other collections because there must be people that only know Dredd.

General / The future is now!

News just in from Hartlepool. They've elected a monkey Mayor. We are now officially in the future.

(Okay, it's the local football mascot - H'angus Monkey - so really it's a man dressed in a monkey suit but still...)

General / Where writers get there ideas from - Part One.
« on: 02 May, 2002, 04:29:55 AM »
It's probably the question that writers are asked the most often - where do you get your cer-azzzy ideas from?

Well now I can answer that. Remember Red Razors? Remember the best bit, his talking horse side-kick, Judge Ed? How did that clever idea of mixing Dredd with the sitcom from the 1950's about a talking horse? Creative imagination?

Well I was reading some back issues the other day. Issues 700 - 705. One of which had a cartoon sent in by a reader of a horse with a judge helmet - caption 'Judge Ed'.

General / Judgement Day of the Dead.
« on: 24 April, 2002, 05:38:52 AM »
I've just finished reading these two strongly connected stories. I bought 2k when 'Judgement Day' came out so this wasn't new but I was surprised how much I'd forgotten and how good it was. This is pretty good stuff. But where was Anderson? Any thoughts on the story?

When I bought a run of the Meg recently I'd started wondering what the other characters in Dredds world were up to during 'Judgement Day' so when I found out when Armitage 'Day of the Dead' was set I decided to skip forwards and read that. I'm guessing there were some elements of the story that I didn't get because I hadn't read the flashbacks. An I right? What did you all think of it by the way?

General / Progs 700 - 970

Just bought a run of back issues, anyone got any recommendations as to what the best bits are, or where to start?

General / Prog 1287
« on: 17 April, 2002, 08:38:09 PM »
Anybody got this yet. Some good, some bad, as ever. Spoilers follow. Duh!

I liked Dredd. As with 'The Chief Judges Man' & 'Lost in CyberSpace' the multi-part story turns out to be a good 'un. I liked the down-beat ending. I'm looking forwards to 'Sin City'.

'Attavar' was the same old, same old. Not too bad but the art looks murky. I'll probably read it all in one go when it's finished and then forget all about it.

I liked the design and the characters in 'Future Shocks', I wouldn't be opposed to a return to McGintys, but that's unlikely to happen.

After the last surprisingly good 'Tales of the Telguuth' (or whatever) this is back to the way it has been. It's a promising idea but never pulled off properly.

'Nikolai Dante' ended on a low note for me. The big fight was over in what - a panel? He'll be back.

Nice to see a letters page. And good to see that 'Shakara' is still pulling in letters. That's one tale I'd like to see return.

General / Who is buying the Titan books?
« on: 15 April, 2002, 04:52:14 AM »
Sure we all have a wish list of books we'd love to see but I'm wondering how many of the currently released books you've all bought and will be buying. Obviously the upcoming books are subject to change but I'm basing this on what we've been told is due. As for myself.

JUDGE DREDD - I've bought all four of the Ennis scripted books (Emerald Isle, Death Aid, Goodnight Kiss, and Helter Skelter). I'll also be buying the upcoming Muzak Killer and Innocents Abroad (although it would have been nice if that story and Emerald Isle had been collected in one volume with 'When Irish Pies Are Smiling').

LIBRARY EDITIONS - I've bought Judge Death and Slaine the King. Cursed Earth, The Day the Law Died, and Nemesis will also be definite buys. I'm not sure about the Rogue Trooper Volume.

THE REST - Halo Jones, Skizz, and A.B.C. Warriers bought so far. The Zenith Books if they ever arrive will be definates, as will Strontium Dog. D.R. & Quinch I wont buy as I've got most of the content from recent Megazines, the same goes for Bad Company. Missionary Man I already have the stories so I'll probably pass on that.

So what have you bought, or will you be buying.

General / The Meg - the first two volumes.
« on: 24 March, 2002, 05:10:23 AM »
I've just bought the first two volumes of the meg (plus the first 7 of v.3) for ?27.50 and now have lots and lots of groovy new (to me) Dredd to read.

Any suggestions as to where I should start? America aside what are the classics? Do you recommend reading them in story blocks or issue by issue?

And this is a more specific question, there's a fifth anniversary article that says Red Razors was later destroyed in 2000 A.D. Do they mean literally the character was killed or the strip ruined? It wasn't clear.

Thanks.

General / This months S.F.X. magazine
« on: 20 March, 2002, 04:10:02 PM »
This months S.F.X. magazine - I don't know the issue number but it's got Wesley Snipes drawing a swrod on the cover - has a feature on '2000 A.D.' It's got a joint interview with Pat Mills and thingy - you know the current editor, as well as a 'Top Ten Thrills'. Number one should be obvious but the order of the rest might surprise you.

It's only half a dozen pages but it's also got stuff on 'Blade II' and 'American Werewolf in London'.

The article is not mentioned on the cover so I thought I'd let people know. It's been on sale for a couple of weeks so the next one's due out soon.

General / Publisher interview.
« on: 14 February, 2002, 11:55:15 PM »
This months 'Comics International' - 143 -(available from a comic shop near you today) has a four page interview with Jason Kingsley the publisher of 2000 A.D. and the Megazine. It goes into deatail about the business behind the mags and the upcoming reprint scheme. Worth ?1.25 of your money I'd say.

General / 2000 A.D. Audios
« on: 12 February, 2002, 02:28:11 AM »
I may be the last to know this but I posted a querry on this on the Doctor Who website www.gallifreyone.com
and got a reply from two of the producers of the new range of Audios. Three strands of Audios are due out.
J.D., Rogue Trooper, and Strontium Dog. The April (when the first release is due) Megazine cover disc was also confirmed.
