No idea why editing that turned it into a quote.


Anyway... when will I learn - first rule of the internet "never read the comments section"

Judge death looks like the Batman who laughs

Where's that Judge Death story from (actually there's a website to help for that isn't there!) for some reason its completely slipped my memory?

The Villains Takeover Special. An odd one to pick.

Oh yes - God that wasn't long ago was it. My bloody memory!

The Villains Takeover Special. An odd one to pick.

Also odd that they picked what was essentially a Future-Shock as an even higher number - not that I'm complaining about Tooth exposure in that Outside World.

The mystery ingredient is Free. As in, pundit's only.exposure to recent proggage is FCBD. So doing its job!

Can't blame him too much on that as I still have FCBD comics from years ago that I've not read yet (not from Rebellion, obviously).  Of course, I'm not getting paid to read and write about comics...

Nah, it's a good thing for Tharg - it shows that the extra effort that goes into Rebellion's FCBD offerings pays off in terms of wider awareness. There's no way someone who regularly buys the comic would have promoted those specific stories (fine though they are) into that kind of Top Ten, but they clearly had access to - and appreciated - the Villains Special. It's a positive.

The Villains Special was a brilliant idea, they must have appealed to so many people who otherwise might not have tried it.

I was listening to Radio National's "RN Breakfast" on ABC radio this morning and they were talking about the World Health Organisation's ability to investigate the origins of the corona virus.  One expert they talked to said (as best I can remember) "Although we sometimes want them to go in there as judge, jury and executioner, like Judge Dredd, the WHO is more like Miss Marple."

I've had a quick listen through parts of the programme again (it's available here[/url) but haven't been able to locate it.  The show runs for three hours each morning, but the on line/download version is only two and a half hours, so it was probably in one of the news segments omitted from the version available here.

(Wow, mucked up that url tag and zero edit window to fix.  If only Rebellion could branch into software coding.)

This weekend's 'i' newspaper contains a whole page interview with Pat Mills...

It's promoting his new Spacewarp anthology (https://www.spacewarpcomic.com/ (https://www.spacewarpcomic.com/), out next month), but also covers his career and (briefly) views on current 2000AD and British comics in general.

Probably covers familiar territory for those following this forum, but pleasing to see a new SF comic promoted up front in the news section of a national paper.  Spacewarp sounds interesting too, promising tales of giant viruses and marauding dinosaurs...

Have just been forced to watch "The Dirt" (DEATH TO FALSE METAL!) and in an early scene showing a young Nikki Sixx, he is wearing the classic Titan Judge Death/Judge Mortis  "You have been judged..." T-shirt!  Sadly the scene in question is set in 1978 so the entire film was runed for me without me even ahving to bring my hatred for the Crue into the equation, much to the annoyance of my wife, who did not appreciate me pointing out the anachronistic T shirt and the many and various reasons this was ALL WRONG.... it was like "Almost Famous" and Joni Mitchell's Blue / Cortez the Killer all over again.....

If you're talking about anachronisms, shouldn't that be Mötley Crüe? :P

Apparently the Superdry clothing brand (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VWtn8TM8ovE) was inspired (at least partially) by everybody's favourite anthology comic.

Tharg should sue him for IP theft. A billion should do it.

And they say it's from the 1995 Judge Dredd film, when it's clearly from Dredd 2012

"Tharg, forgive them, for they do not know what they do."

Media coverage of something you know inside out does make you wonder just how much of what they hack together is accurate the rest of the time though...
