Well it all got a bit public as I recall. Si Spurrier said that while he'd love to finish it he didn't think Frasier Irving had the time to get it done as he had other priorities. To which Frasier saod he'd told Si that he was going to finish it and he had always maintained that he would... hold on there was a thread about all this which might shed more light...

there you go second page has linkies to revalent quotes etc

The colleague was the same one that told me I didn't like Catherine Tate and Little Britain because I "didn't understand them." Tosser.

Christ if they think Catherine Tate and Little Britain are intellectually challenging heaven help um!

Megazine / Re: How crap is Armitage?

Its a shame there's not more information on the relative health of 2000ad at the minute. Creatively its certainly seems absolutely fine and with a blossoming trade programme I kinda felt that it was doing ok. The alternative view that House of U put forward and that certainly seems backed up my the Colin McNeil point is of course very possible. I don't think its in danger of being cancelled anytime soon but it'd be good to know it wasn't having to live hand to mouth so to speak or being bolstered by other revenue streams.

At the risk of being a hollow echo- that's cracking stuff right there, Jim.

I think when its that good just coming on to add to the praise is far from a hollow echo. That's pretty stunning stuff and the bar has well and truely been set!

Thank god for that I was having a hard time figuring out why I didn’t understand what I was reading (being dyslexic is an arse)
My ability to type like the average monkey is a pain in the bum too!

That used to be a huge problem for both 2000ad and the Megazine. I don't think it happens at all any more, does it? I think, with times being as lean as they are, Tharg has to be quite discerning about the strips he commissions. Consequently they get commissioned in short, self-contained runs, and they see print quite promptly. You can't afford to spend the commissioning budget two years in advance and have a backlog of quickly outdated material cluttering up the drawers and have to turn down pitches from top talent because there's nothing to pay for them with.

Out of interest is this based on any specific information or is this supposition? I agree that there seems to be much more quality material in 2000ad (I can't speak for the Meg) but is this due to times being so hard or is it the fact that there are a lot of quality creators wanting to work for 2000ad?

I've stopped a number of times. The first couple of times are lost in the mists of time and were probably in fact my brother stopping as I'm sure it was his comic. Our parents let us get two comics each every week. Probably he wanted more Top Trumps or he started to get White Dwarf or summit?

I stopped around 1000 (after starting on 432) as it was getting delivered to my parents (on Merseyside) and I'd moved to Sheffield after going to Uni there and by that stage I'd all but stopped reading any comics anyway as I was enjoying the high life far too much. It seemed silly for them to continue getting it since I wasn't reading it anymore.

Now I will do all I can to not stop again as certainly the last two times I spend far too much time and money tracking down the issues I've missed and so I hope I've learnt my lesson and will continue getting it. I have a full set aside from the first 40 (oh one day, one day) and a couple of the early specials. Why spoil a good thing?

Seen a lot of time bombs recently in the SD stories...or is it just my bad memory?

And with the costs mentioned for them in this weeks Prog I do now wonder if Johnny carried out most of his cases at a lose!

did you mean loss?

Couldn't remember the fella's name until Richard mentioned it. Jason Issacs is my guess

In Progs 711 and 715 (i think) I got a letter and a picture printed, not sure which appeared in which issue , both asking for the return of Sam Slade. Tharg replied saying don't worry they're on their way. I was so excited... and well look what happened then!

So while I do defo want the return of the other Sam Slade the terrible memories my letters are associated with mean I surely can't get involved in another letter to Tharg on the same(ish) subject for fear of who might handle that return!

Books & Comics / Re: Whats everyone reading?

Just finished Paul Auster's New York Trilogy.



What the f**k was that all about, then?

I'm a big Paul Auster fan and while I have no doubt at all I don't get all the meanings etc I always find him an enjoyable read. Typically his books deal with indentity and effects chance and random events have on life... well that's my take but I'm certainly no expert!

Have these fella's been around for ages or is the Telegraphs claim that they are the first Muslim superheroes just lazy journalism?
