Hehe, 'Bowel' isn't perhaps such a good name for a user.

I wanted the user name 'Grobbendonk' (Nemesis familiar?) but the name was taken. I Googled and found that 'Grobbendonk' is a real place by Antwerp in Belgium and that 'Bouwel' is a district of Grobbendonk. The flag you can see as my avatar is the flag of Grobbendonk :)

Yes, I have to say the 90's were a poor time for 2000 AD. It got to the point where I really wasn't reading it so I sort of gave up. I wish I had kept on now as I would have had a complete collection!

Does this mean that if a Freemason child dies I now have 60 seconds to get his chip out?

Enquiring minds want to know!

Hi there

Well, I read 2000AD from issue number one right up until the mid 1990's when, to be delicate, it went a bit pants.

Clearing out the lock-up a few weeks back I re-discovered all the old issues/annuals/Sci-Fi specials and, now being of an age where I have little else to do, I decided to have a read of them. I was amazed at the quality of the stories and artwork even after all this time (yes, I know there are a fair few duds in the early days!). This further prompted me to buy the missing issues (well, most of them anyway) and catch up to date with things. I will say I am impressed, although Judge Dredds theme in the early 00's should have been 'I get knocked down, but I get up again..'. I mean, just how much abuse can a man of that age take; there's hope for me yet :)

Anyway, thought I'd pop my head in here and see what's going on. What I would have given for a forum like this back in the 1970's!

(Things I have learnt today: 'Bouwel' is part of the municiplaity of 'Grobbendonk' by Antwerp, Belgium. Guess which nick I wanted but which had been taken!)
