Wotcher
« on: 07 August, 2013, 01:17:38 AM »
Well wotcher :-)

Finally got activated weeks into trying, so hey-ho.
Boring background: first prog = 181, read religiously till 800-ish(???) and still a run of unread progs in the loft.
Tried a couple of times over the years to pick up progs in the 90's, gave that up when flicking through the progs.
But.... picked up 1800, liked it, read ever since, Dredd film was great and the rest is biochemistry.
Lurker at ECBT 2000ad and hope to chip in there soon.
Podcasts are an absolute treat :-) Ron Smith & Henry Flint...

Anyway, got the comics habit back, Day of Chaos books and much else (Before Watchmen - don't
judge me - and Saga and American Vampire and Extraordinary Gents).... working my way through all that.
Funny how things work out.

Welcome aboard.

Good to hear you have the comics bug back, there's a lot of great stuff out there, particularly 2000ad of course you joined us again during what many (myself included) believe to be a new golden age for the The Galaxies Greatest. Enjoy catching up and have fun.

It most definitely is a classic Dredd story - and a bit of a personal fave. Good stuff!

Anyways, welcome to the forum, Fungus2  :wave:

Howdy! Welcome to the boards :)
Cheers Bobble...
I have today's prog in my sweaty hands, may be a few days before I read the prog and post my
pointless thoughts ("such pretty colours and zombies and that", etc.).
It's forum-avoidance when so many get the prog (wrongly) a week early. Hm...
