Judging by the over reaction the Regened gets from some corners I'd suggest that they are already Reoffending many already!

Is-Fair?No! - An escaped cabal of enraged fanboys storms Mega City One fueled by the anger they feel that their 'favourite' Vid-comic; isn't produced EXACTY the way they want it to be. Its too much for Dredd and he has to call upon the crack Editorial Division Judges.

Biz Dave - Middle England's hardest Media Mogel outraged that some folks can choice to not spend their money with companies they don't like and find morally reprehensible, decides to makes a stand for his fellow underdog and starts a new media empire, fronted by Angry O'Nail to make sure no ones going to Cancel him.

Hopeless - Truly - Bozza, Matty, Dom, Pritz and Other Dom go on a hilarious road trip trying to escape responsibility for the death of thousands in a plague ravaged world. But they don't realise one of them is about to betray them.

Ego-Manic 4 (more) - he was once a nation's only hope. He was once they only one who would make the world great again BUT then his country tried to silence him and all his followers. When open rebelliion failed and his power stripped away he was cast out from society and on the run form the law. He ready to comeback, uploaded within his own social media platform like the world had never seen. 4 MORE YEARS.

Slaughter Bowl 2 - Cos ever line up has at least one good story in it.
Don't ever tone down 2000ad for a younger audience. I like the blood, guts and violence just the way it is!

you are doing a bad job of this guys I actually want to read some of these  :lol:

Big Dave: Bregshite: Manchesters hardest man returns and faces off against the puffs that tried to cancel him all those years ago and in the process faces off against the forces of the liazard man known as cummings

BOJO from beyond the stars: A hard reboot of bonjo from beyond the stars but instead featuring an even more destructive and digusting antagonist.

Mark Millars Samantha Slade: RoboC---ter: Sam Slades Little girl returns and this time no one is safe!

Wogue TwoopeW: Walter the wobot stars in a 200 part mega epic written by the ghost of Michael Fleisher

Canon Fodder 2012: Written by some muppet on this board an epic saga in which the canon and his estranged father face off against the devil in the 2012 olympic games.

Klep: A navel gazing epic in which the earstwell captain faces hamfisted representations of the current political climate. ends with klep getting arse raped by bojo from beyond the stars in a shocking crossover

Nadir Mark Millar returns to the prog with a fresh take on fan favourite Zenith.

Part of me really wants to see this.

Walter's a Cripple
This hilarious, Dickensian tale... [no, look, just stop! - ed.]

I missed a trick there - should have been Walter's a Cwipple.


Really enjoyed CBA Warriors, Nadir and Wendigo Pride. Am I wrong to want to see some of these in print?
The meg should stay the way it is. Yes, it is true that I do not always enjoy all the content but I like to idea of a possible bonus as part of the meg.

I just think the current regen run will most likely be kept for the foreseeable future
Replace the floppy has multiple issues:

- No discoverability on shop shelves
- Lower distribution/visibility for the Meg as a whole
- Huge increase in production costs (which would increase the Meg’s price by a few quid)
- No circulation bump for 2000 AD
I'd also like Tharg to publish a regular Battle Comic as well .......

Now you talking !!!!
Hard to see how it works without making sure the 'regular' 2000ad stuff is toned down a little - have no real problem with that, by and large, as much of the stuff that would be an issue isn't a big deal... though how would stories like Hope, or Diaboliks (for example) be affected? As the stories would be in the same physical object just flipping them doesn't seem much of a seperation in my mind.

The option that I'd like to work (but keep reading as I accept it clearly won't) is to have Regened replace the Floppie so it can be passed around as a seperate product and enjoyed as such. The clear issue here is the floppie isn't a money spinner, rather a cheap way to pad out the Meg to help folks feel they are getting value for money (pretty sure Tharg has said this) - a good Regened will clearly cost a LOT and so that's a none starter I imagine.

If we can't get a seperate title, we'll need to make do with what we have. Which I've no real problem with as I find it refreshing, interrupting running stories aside. If the collections start to make money for Tharg (who knows how they are doing and I'm guessing the speed the second was announced was a timing rather than sales thing???) maybe that is the route to getting a second title under the Regened banner - which I'd genuinely love, not to seperate it from the regular Prog, but I would love this comic to exist full stop... but I'd also like Tharg to publish a regular Battle Comic as well ... so ya know... what I want and what is realistic really don't necessarily relate.
