Coming to the prog in September (prog 2247 - 2251):

Incredible SF action from the Eisner-nominated UK anthology! In Progs 2247-2249, future lawman Judge Dredd is trapped in house of horror in "The House on Bleaker Street";


Y'know, I could swear we've been to Bleaker Street before but I can't place it...

. Oh, and women are harder to draw correctly for some male artists as - again, we generally use ourselves for reference.

And don't forget that pile of magazines under the bed, reference material Shirley?

Undoubtedly - and in keeping with the wholesome nature of this forum - this is the kind of material to which Proudhuff is referring?  ;)

*tut* - can't believe you posted a picture of somebody in a bath!  Full on to the camera too!

There was an advert on telly about 15 years ago, which had CGId the cast of Happy Days into it. I remember seeing some bloke upload it to YouTube as an example of an urealistic portrayal of history due to its ethnically diverse nature. He thought there were far too many people of colour hanging around with Fonzie and the gang and that this would never happen back in the 1950s.


Wonder how they'd react if somebody told them where rock'n'roll came from?

It's been a while since I read the lot, but as I recall, the events of Phase II resulted in the birth of Zenith's son, who due to extra-dimensional, existing-in-all-of-time-and-space shenanigans ended up being Iok Sotot (the Lloigor from Phase I).

Oh, and at least one of the superhumans that Zenith mated with was a clone of his mum.  I'm going to guess the other was Ruby Fox, but that's just a guess.  Could be one of those other sixties superhumans, like the one who fell through a mirror to another dimension (pay close attention).

I'm worried about my wife and daughter, who went up river camping a couple of days ago, outside of cell range. I mean - I'm sure they'll be fine, but it doesn't stop me from worrying.

Nah - you should be worried about the rest of the world.  No film ever started with people going on a trip outside of contact with the outside world had them come back to a civilisation that hadn't fallen!

I don't know who dreamt up the alternate Prog numbers, but it was a bad idea. Progs 2000, 2001, 2002 etc all the way up to 2015 should be in the previous year. Prog 2000 is Christmas 1999. Sure, they are end of year double issues, but if somebody asks me where I was for Christmas 2000 I don't think they mean 1999! Otherwise, that way madness lies!  ;)

Nah - Prog 2000 had a cover date of 28 September 2016...



On the general topic - the cover date on British comics traditionally isn't a publication date, or even a guide for people making databases when home computing became practical decades later - it's a guide to the newsagent on when to take the comic off the shelves and replace it with the next one.

The first step is recognising that you (could) have a problem, so good luck in reducing alcohol intake!

Of course, everyone in the world knew his name at the end.  Just as his annoyingly cocky younger self predicted.  I heard of someone who went on a date with a pre-fame Conor McGregor, who predicted the same thing of himself, but fuck him.

If it helps at all, I've never heard of Conor McGregor until you just mentioned them.

I think Helter Skelter must be there so they can name drop some famous comics people who used to work for Tharg…. If not, then yep, totally baffling.

As seems to have been noticed, there are a few obvious potential omissions on this list…

No Crusade or Judgement Day, for a start ;) ;)

Always funny how different people will pick some unexpected choices (if they were just going for big names then surely they'd have rotated out Helter Skelter for Emerald Isle?  They'd have got the creative team for Hellblazer and Preacher then).


I noticed there was also a link to an article on (the boardgame) Block Mania too: 80s Judge Dredd board game Block Mania returns.

Am I uncultured if I only know Ned from the role as Otis in the Superman films?

Some of those translations are pretty easy, but they just have to be left in for the sake of amusement.  I wonder if Judge Button knew Judge Pin?


This week's quizzer:

For the first time, the game is intended for Jackson fans only!

As for the new one I think Corinthian is right but just to throw in an alternative - Meltdown Man (though have we had that already?).

We did - in fact you're the one who correctly guessed MM!

Speaking of correct guesses - The Corinthian was spot on.  Here's the comparison:

Quote from: original
Lose Yourself In A Tale Of Epic Fantasy!

30 years after the British parliament suspended the death penalty, the gallows have returned and Adam Cadman finds himself being the first person to be hanged since 1964. But as his life drains away, Adam is transported to a strange, new dimension, populated by warriors and mystical beasts: the bizarre Mazeworld! Written by 2000 AD legend Alan Grant (Judge Dredd, Batman) and featuring the breath-taking artwork of Arthur Ranson (Button Man, Judge Anderson) this must-have graphic novel contains the complete Mazeworld saga.


Quote from: translation
I’m lost for a great, great event!

He returned to power 10 years after the death penalty was abolished by the British Parliament and feels like he did not commit suicide 90 years later. Of course, when he died, he was moved to an unfamiliar place inhabited by soldiers Nick and a mysterious beast: the world of tourism! Eddie wrote an exemplary novel by two very amazing couples and Bright Master Shanti Lanson (Judge Button), which is part of a very complex world.

Mrs Gunderson is relatively young compared to some mega-citizens we've seen (Bizmo Klux* was mentioned earlier) though it should be noted that Gunderson isn't quite as active as Dredd tends to get!

* born: 12th July 1971, died 24th December 2104

Second Jag yesterday, no side effect, all good!! and a week's hols next week.

Second Jag?  What are you, a deputy prime minister?

 :lol: Nope, Scottish: so its a jag not a jab (which is a punch). Jags are prickly things little thistles, bunnets or jumpers


Thanks for the linguistics lesson - I'd thought it was a typo!


Love hearing about the Scots terms - particularly as I spent much of my childhood reading a comic which frequently featured Scots in-jokes in about two thirds of the stories (because they were written by John Wagner and Alan Grant).  I still wonder how many I'm missing!
