There appeared to be a lot of interest in the 2000AD prog zero and the banned issue of Action that came with the Action 2020 Special.

So my idea would be as a premium subscription re-issue the first year of Action/2000AD as a flipbook prog by prog - so in week one you get 2000AD prog 1 back to back with Action 1.

I think a lot of people would love the subscription idea of a 'first year' collection of both titles - back to back - so they couldn't be mistaken for the originals...

The Beano have an incredible offerings
Could we have similar...?
- Personalised Prints
- Your kids name in the annual, or comic
- Annuals from your birth year
- Signed editions (alright we have some of them)


Suggestions / I loved the dummy issue zero of AD 2000...
« on: 13 October, 2021, 09:31:37 PM »
any chance of:

Judge Dredd Fortnightly mock-up - Judge Anderson / Helltreckers / Blockers etc.
Zarjaz - the Warrior rival mock-up - with the Mick McMahon painted cover
Alternity / Earthside 8 - both versions

That's all...

I've just picked up the Titan Book Alan Moore's Twisted Times and there's an incredible cover and introduction from Alan himself.
I'd love this.

But then I do like introductions and I wouldn't mind a digital collection of all the Matt Smith/Molcher essays & intros from the Hachette partworks. I do like reading about comics.

Blank Sketch covers - say of the next jumping on prog would be very welcome.
I'd certainly pay a premium for them or buy in bulk.
To my knowledge only IDW offered a Dredd one once.

Events / Thought Bubble - 2021 - who's going?

Let us know if you're going...
Any artists that you're looking forward to seeing?

Suggestions / Could we have a 2000AD 45th Anniversary bash?
« on: 14 June, 2021, 11:05:04 PM »
I know this is highly unlikely to be near the top of anyone's agenda
But is there a way to put on a 45th bash maybe by bringing in a partner company (who may run an existing type of convention)

My thinking is that it really did seem to bring old reader's back in to the fold.
And frankly the 50th seems such a long way.

I know it's a 'no' but maybe with a partner who was willing to take it on?

Suggestions / What if the Megazine had a different remit?
« on: 03 June, 2021, 03:46:39 PM »
So this week 2000AD ended up this week with three Dredd-world strips.
I didn't mind but online this concentration was greeted with a resounding "But that is the job of the Meg"

So what if the remit of the Megazine was changed. And it featured old-school 'classic' characters set in their prime continuity. So more Rogue Trooper (a la Cinnabar) or Zombo or Nikolai Dante adapted from the novels.
Anything goes but old-school characters in new stories.

And then 2000AD is Dredd with the new world stories. The Brinks. Feral & Foe. So unchanged.
Would this attract more than 50% numbers to the Meg?

Suggestions / It's time for the Summer Offensive: Complete Edition
« on: 25 April, 2021, 08:55:06 PM »
Dear Tharg
I've made many suggestions with no acknowledgement. Big Dave says 98.7% of 2000AD readers would enjoy a Mark Millar edited collection of Purgatory + Inferno and all the Summer Offensive stories with a new art bookplate by Steve Parkhouse and Steve Yeowell with Big Dave and Maniac 5 in the pub.

Compile it with all the excesses of the 90s so maybe the failed 90s advertising campaign, the Loaded Dredd cover and a repro of both SEX issues.

Tharg you know it makes sense. And thanks for the chat.

Suggestions / Print-on-demand Dust Jackets for the Hachette books
« on: 19 April, 2021, 05:04:58 PM »

Hachette are no longer allowing new subscribers to 2000AD as they dont have early books
I'd buy a lot of the books but the spine image looks ugly unless you have the full set

Sell Dust Jackets that have the title on the spine.
I'd buy Dominion, Insurrection and the Nemesis ones if this was the case. Heck put me down for Dante in HC.

Suggestions / A different type of combi-subscription... (read on)
« on: 18 April, 2021, 10:07:56 PM »
i prefer to read the print versions of 2000ad and the Meg
i like getting them early and I decide which tpbs I'll buy. So now Megatropoils and Dreadnoughts are on my list.

But I haven't got the space to keep 52 progs and 13 megs a year.

I know Rebellion don't want to offer a combi Print & Digital subscription simultaneously, so how about this...
A physical subscription that offers you Digital versions at the end of the calendar year
So you read all year the physical copies and then in the full knowledge that at year end you will get Digital versions, you can either keep or share the physical copies.

No-one has enough room for 45 years worth of progs & megs. It's now more than a rooms worth. I would pay Physical + £2 extra a month for this option.

Both Dave Taylor and Kenneth are relatively accessible. So also Higgins & Mike Carroll
So could we have a signed and even sketched edition?
It's a pretty cool package so maybe worthy of a bookplate of each.

Hi guys

I got the Thirteenth Floor Vol.2 today.
It was in a card envelope. It arrived with the lid open and unglued. The corners are foxed and I wouldn't accept a hardback in that condition.

The 'limited' hardback repeats the biographies of all three writers/artists on a duplicate facing page
And the book ends with 4 pages of promotion/adverts which are advertising... Thirteenth Floor vol. 1

Nope. it makes no sense.

Take more time. Package and protect hardbacks better. And do more Quality control please.
Apart from that the repro on the old Eagle & Tiger covers was great. And I'm really glad you're doing this series.

Suggestions / Judge Dredd: The Ledger in Order
« on: 21 July, 2020, 03:51:09 PM »
Ever since reading Judge Dredd The Mega History and the printing of the ledger that showed the order in which Pat Mills commissioned artists to work on Dredd, I would like to see those stories reprinted in order.

An added narrative from Pat would be great explaining what he did and didn't like. It would allow a reprint book to start with Bank Raid first, maybe even include Rufus 'Courtroom' from Class of '77 if possible written by Jack Adrian. I know Bank Raid has been reprinted many times but it hasnt exactly been given the prominence it deserves hidden away in annual censored or in the extras section of the Case Files.

I'd just like to see the stories in order so we could see issues like the number of Judges and Judge written on the badge slowly disappear into what we know today.
