Are there any meet ups now and again for fans in Scotland?

Welcome to the board!

Interesting that you liked Tornado.  I recently (few years ago) read the whole lot (https://sheridanwilde.wordpress.com/2015/05/30/17/) as part of a prog slog, as well as Starlord.  I liked Blackhawk, Wolfie Smith and Angry Planet, but didn't really rate the rest that highly.  Did you get to read Starlord?

There's a well practiced formula:
1. pick a date well in advance, often around a convention
2. several people agree to meet
3. cancel one by one due to other commitments, until all agree to reschedule in a couple of months.


And welcome to the board!

Welcome aboard. Interesting to see a list of likes. We have a tournment running at the moment voting on our favourite (not Dredd) series. Many if not all of your favs are still in the running as we are deep into Round 2 (or 9) so you might have some fun playing there.

Either way have fun.

Yes indeed. Enjoyed Starlord as well (liked Ro-Busters, Timequake, and of course Strontium Dog there) ....from Tornado, quite liked Victor Drago, and Blackhawk. Sad that both only ran for 22 issues.
