Tornado comic plus various old 2000ads ,comics and various reference books but the time i spend reading is absolutely minimal as doing art takes up a lot of my spare time.

Are the Tornado's any good? I kinda want to get hold of Starlord as it looks to have some pretty good stuff in it but Tornado doesn't seem to hold as fond a memories for people?

Halo Jones *is* your favorite female character.

Theres nothing quite like someone telling you what you like in capital letters.

What if she isnt ?

What are you going to do about it if she isnt ?

It was just the results of a poll, not a personal dictate... oh and now there's me telling people what other people were thinking. I don't think it was a dictate

The Skizz situation is a little different in that Alan Moore has never wanted anything other than co-ownership with his artists. So as Jim Baikie produced the later (absolutely superb too) Skizz stories I'm sure he has no beef with that. Likewise if Ian Gibson wanted to do a Halo Jones (which I think he's mentioned he's had ideas for but doesn't want to do it without Alan Moore? I hand that one over to those with more knowledge.) that I'm sure Alan Moore would be fine with it.

All that said yeah in theory Rebellian do own the characters (I think) and so in theory yeah someone else could do it. I suspect its just a case that its become a bit of a scared cow and no one wants to touch it.

Oh and I'm not saying I think Alan Moore's case is right, just repeating my understanding of the situation.

I only stumbled across Paul Auster about a year ago when I feel in love with the cover of Timbuktu and being someone who thinks that very often you can judge a book by its cover I snapped it up. While I don't think its particularly representative of his work it is a glorious book and if you like dogs then I can't recommend it highly enough.

My personal favourite of his that I've read is Mr Vertigo but I'd actually suggest that New York Trilogy might be more representative of his work? It's a damned fine read also.

That's some pretty exciting stuff there. I'm amazed that you completed the work you've done for 2000ad in you're spare time, that must have taken an age?

So what they goota do to get you working full time?

Currently reading Brooklyn Follies by PAul Auster. Not as good as his other books but still enjoyable.

Comics wise I've almost finished the 2nd Showcase Presents Haunted Tanks volume and will I think move onto the second half of the Giffen / Levitz Legion run before returning to my 2000ad reread at the 800s.

Princess Bride, great film, great book by the way.

Other Reviews / Re: Judgement Day

Quote from: "Toni Scandella"
Am I alone in quite liking Judgement Day?

It's no classic, admittedly, and the whole dennis / walter bit was dumb, but the rest of it was fun enough at the time.  I quite liked a lot of Garth Ennis's's's's's Dredd, except Helter Skelter which was shit, and I kind of miss Judge Joyce.

Oh I'm a bit fan of Ennis Dredd I think its very good. I've not read Helter Skelter yet, having just only just filled the gap from my wilderness years I've not got around to reading the progs yet and I know it gets mixed reviews. That aside the original Ennis run on Dredd is great. I just think Judgement Day is a bit of a low point in it.

You'd think they'll have to be very careful how they price this. After all if the casual reader wants a nostalgia hit when they see this on the shelves next to a whole load of Case Files, which may well be cheaper (no price on this yet but since its hardcover you'd assume it'd be more expensive) you'd think they'd go for the Case Files. Especially since that might have a whole load of stories from whatever era of 2000ad they have dabbled in in the past, rather than a bit here and a bit there?

Or if you're determined why not look up a locate binding service so that you can get a nice neat job done rather than a DIY job you might regret later?

...while I would normally question how fair it is to read stuff that's been scanned however since the various companies seem to refuse to get the material out I can get over that.

While having no business speaking for the parties involved, I think there's an unspoken understanding throughout the various blogs under that umbrella that material will come offline when it returns to print.  You'll notice Charley's War conspicuously absent from the sister Captain Hurricane site, for example.

That's good to know.

Either way I printed off the first few episodes the other day and its great stuff. While maybe not quite as 'sophisticated' as 'Charley's War' (Sophisticated isn't the right word but its the best I could come up with on a tired late shift on a Thursday night!) its certainly a rip roaring read and many of the themes and ideas that would later be used so effectively in Pat Mill's work are there.

Thanks again for the heads up to this Grant.

Not sure exactly what issues are included in Case File 13 but its interesting to note that Liam Sharpe is seen as such a big draw (no pun intended) that he gets top artistic billing. I'd be surprised if he did a particularly large number of issues in this collection?

Ctaylor, I've been rereading some 1979-80 Cooper-drawn Johnny Red recently, and it is classy stuff all the way.  It was a terrific strip.  Make your way over to the Falcon Squadron site today and you can read great big nicely-scanned chunks of it.

Heavens to mergatrode that is a site to behold! Thank you Grant while I would normally question how fair it is to read stuff that's been scanned however since the various companies seem to refuse to get the material out I can get over that. I know what job I'll be doing when I work late this Thursday! I'm all excited about this now...

All I can do in return is once again say how great Thrillpower Thursday is and advise people to read it. See nowt like snivelling gratitude!
