How odd. It may well be registering on your machine as a false positive for reasons unknown.

Perhaps replace http in the address with https - this is for the secure Facebook server.

I'll settle for having a prog available every Wednesday with my breakfast.  And, well, not this morning, evidently.

Prog 1729 went up on Clickwheel at around 8.15 this morning - was it not there when you looked?

Fight your foes on Facebook as Evil Genius goes anti-social

Dust off your death ray, practice your ‘mwahahahahaaa!’ and prepare to do battle – Evil Genius now gives you the power to take the fight to your deadliest enemies!

Leading European games developer Rebellion is delighted to launch the battle phase on its first free-to-play anti-social game, Evil Genius: WMD.

Based on the critically acclaimed and much loved PC title Evil Genius, the game now gives madmen-in-training the chance to battle challengers to their malevolent authority!

Thousands of Facebook users have already created their own evil empires, undertaken dastardly missions and recruited friends into their evil syndicates.

Players can now engage their enemies – or even their friends – in mortal combat using everything from laser sharks to exploding hamsters, from wielding a friendly pirate cutlass to bringing out a deadly death ray!

Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion, said:
“This is the next stage in world domination for any would-be Ernst Blofeld or Dr No – taking on your rivals to become the ultimate Evil Genius! The team has done a great job creating an arena for the thousands who’ve already signed up to Evil Genius: WMD to do battle with increasingly dastardly weapons. We’re looking forward to continuing to expand the game with new features and extra content over the coming months.”

Chris Kingsley, CTO, said:
“If you keep your friends close and your enemies closer, then this new battle game on Evil Genius: WMD is the perfect way to do both. It brings to fruition our fiendish plans to make Evil Genius on Facebook the very first anti-social social network game.”

The update comes just weeks after Rebellion announced it is to create its own division dealing exclusively with games for social media platforms. Evil Genius has been regularly updated and expanded since its beta release last year, with Valentine’s Day-themed content.

The Oxford-based developer is best known for its best-selling title Aliens Vs. Predator – which became Sega’s fastest selling title of 2010 – as well as The Simpsons Game for Electronic Arts and such critical successes as Sniper Elite and Rogue Trooper.


Twenty-five years to the day since Alan Moore’s stunning space opera, The Ballad of Halo Jones, came to an end, American audiences can now enjoy this all-time classic from an indisputable comic book legend – along with extra material exclusive for the US.

A must-have in Moore’s oeuvre, Halo Jones represents one of the most human, profound and complex tales the Watchmen and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen writer ever produced.

When it came to a premature end in legendary British comic book 2000 AD on 19th April 1986 – another six chapters were planned but never written – Moore left behind a story that has captivated readers ever since.

With breathtaking artwork from Ian Gibson, The Ballad of Halo Jones is a multi-layered character-driven tale of a young woman stuck in a bleak futuristic New York who sets out to explore the galaxy by any means – whether serving onboard a star cruiser or fighting in warzones that defy physics.

This edition, exclusive to the US, includes pages from Moore’s original typewritten scripts for Halo Jones – presented as they appeared at the time – as well as covers and a Gibson pin-up.

ISBN 978-1-906735-93-7            $17.99         Out now

When I hear that there are problems with uploading, I make sure I post on here to let you know. Hopefully things will run a little smoother in the future.

Meg 308 should now be up.

Apologies for the delay with Meg 308, we're currently overcoming some technical issues with file sizes etc. Hopefully it will appear shortly.

Is 2000ad from Clickwheel any different to the 'illegal' copy ?

Yes, it's not a straight scan that's then just stuffed into a rar file.

Rest assured that any delays with uploading are technical and have nothing to do with whether we support or like digital sales.

Who is doing their marketing, branding etc??....possibly a goldfish :)       

Yeah, thanks for that.

Books & Comics / The hunt is on for knights in shining armour!
« on: 13 April, 2011, 04:46:29 PM »
Are you chivalrous enough to be a Knight of the New Round Table – and win the chance to be a real knight for the day?

To celebrate the release of the new Knights of Albion series of Arthurian adventure, Abaddon Books is on the hunt for ‘knights in shining armour’ to sit on a 21st Century King Arthur’s Round Table – and they could win the chance to be a real knight for a day.

As part of the hunt, a real knight in shining armour ventured out onto the streets of London – and caused a few stares – as he searched for chivalrous candidates, even managing to do a little wooing of his own!

Whether it’s rescuing a princess from a dragon or just opening doors for your beloved, wannabe Sir Galahads can tell us why they should earn a place at Arthur’s side by going to http://www.abaddonbooks.com/knight_for_a_day

The most chivalrous are in with a chance to win an exclusive day of training from experts at a specialist jousting facility where they’ll undertake the essential training that no aspiring knight would be without – from swordplay to donning armour. The day will be crowned with a thrilling live demonstration of jousting.

The Knights of Albion is an exciting new series based on the ‘rediscovered’ second book by Thomas Malory, author of the Le Morte d'Arthur. The first in the series, The Black Chalice, follows wannabe knight Alymere, who discovers the foul Devil’s Bible – said to have been written in one night by an insane hermit – which leads him to seek the unholy anti-Grail know as the Black Chalice.

About the Series
‘Uncovered’ in the parish church of St. Barbara and St. Christopher in the summer of 2006, the Salisbury Manuscript (British Library Add. MS 1138) is the only extant copy of Sir Thomas Malory’s The Seconde Boke of kyng Arthur and also His noble Knyghts, apparently written at Thomas Caxton’s request after Malory’s release from gaol. Deep controversy surrounds the book, which is claimed by some to be a contemporary forgery, possibly written by Caxton himself. In March 2010, Rebellion Publishing announced that it had secured exclusive rights to publish the modernisations of the stories...

Abaddon’s eighth shared world, Malory’s Knights of Albion will regale our readers with totally original stories set in King Arthur’s time, exploring the stories of the less well-known knights – like loyal Sir Alymere – or telling previously-unknown events from the lives of beloved characters close to Britain’s greatest king.
With courage and courtesy close to its heart, the series promises to deliver the best of heroic, chivalric adventure, often with a dark or surprising twist.

About the Author
Steven Savile has written almost thirty novels and short story collections, including The Hollow Earth, Temple: Incarnations, Laughing Boy’s Shadow, Houdini’s Last Illusion, Angel Road, and the graphic novel Fragrance of You (with artist Robert Sammelin). He was a runner up in the 2000 British Fantasy Awards, a winner of a 2002 Writers of the Future Award, and nominated twice for the Scribe Award, in 2006 (for best novel adaptation) and the 2008 (for best young adult novel). www.stevensavile.com

Here's hoping Tharg, in his infinite wisdom and boundless generosity deigns to pass copies of this to the subscribers- many of whom will not have access to comic-shops.

That isn't something we'll be doing - the FCBD sampler is available through comic book shops only.
