Hey Paul. Do you think its a case of not so much wanting 2000 AD to be like it was when you were reading it back in the eighties but more to do with harking back to how you REACTED to it in the eighties? I know when i read the back progs (especially 1 - 100) they invoke all sorts of memories - not only the ritual of the weekly wait but the art you'd doodle (and if you were brave enough, send in to Tharg), other comics you'd read, the speculation in the letters page on whether Dredd was actually human and loads more. Thats why i enjoyed the first couple of T.P.O's more than the rest. So, i guess we can't react the same now as we did to our own halcyon era of the prog as we aren't the same people we were then.
The perspective on that chairs all wrong

Yeah, possibly it's just the vibe I miss, though maybe I am just more of a moaning git now as well.

Probably a bit much to ask Tharg for more 'vibe', it started to lose it for me post 520... so, hmmm... I dunno.

Pat the ultimate rewrite editor has a problem with people rewriting his stuff or using any of his characters in anything.

This point has been much muttered over in some quarters.

The hand-bags fly and the rattles get thrown out the pram in the last TPO, in a section called, I believe, 'The Egoes Have Landed.'

I tell ya, you really _don't_ want to miss  this one...
