Books & Comics / Re: Evolution Of A Cover (Partick Goddard)
« on: Today at 02:06:52 PM »
Firstly wow! That is fantastic. Patrick Goddard is such an underated talent.

Secondly that is a great insight and thanks for sharing. I keep getting tempted by the 2000ad Covers Uncovered Annual that's being advertised, but haven't taken the plunge yet. Seeing things like this make me really question why that is.

So just as Trash is doing okay Urban Strike is doing a lot better than I expected. How will this one go with the last day of voting today and I'll announce the result in the morning.

Last day here and I have to be honest I'm not sure which way this will go, could Junker really make it. Could nice art and the fact that you stick in folks mind enough to get it through. You have today to decide.

So we’re well into the second half of the 1st Round and stats fans this week sees us cover 14.2% - 16.3% of the tourney over all… oh gosh… I wish I hadn’t typed that… I’m sorry...

Tracer has the honour (?) of being amongst a select group of thrill that meets the minimum requirement of appearing in only 2 episodes so just qualifying as series. Mechastopheles was a 3riller notching up 3 episodes before bursting out into its own series - so just like the eponymous protagonists if scale has anything to do with it we know where this one is going.

Which most rattles your thrill-receptors:

Mechastopheles - more info

Vs.

Tracer - more info

Just reply in this thread naming your favourite thrill of these two series at the beginning of your post (or use Bold tags so I can spot it easily) and say what you like about these wonderful stories after that.

Match ends early on the morning of Sunday 12th December and the winner gets a place in Round 2 (of 9!!!).

What on Earth is ALL of this?

For those that need ‘um and can be bothered to follow ‘um there’s some simple rules

Any questions, just ask as ever - and have FUN!

This one is a real test of the thrill-banks - please don’t make it a draw, ‘cos if you do I’m flippin’ a coin!

VOTING CLOSED

Another interesting one this. I have a lot of affection for Armoured Gideon, even the controvesial 'Collector' story and that's the case in the vote. BUT that in part is due to the strips it ran alongside. I do wonder if a strip like Stone Island, a fantastic horror movie had run at that time, surrounded by the strips Gideon was it would be hailed as a classic. As it is

Armoured Gideon

Annihilates Stone Island, which will be one of the best strips not to get to Round 2.

VOTING CLOSED

Interesting one and frustrating one this. Universal Soldier was a decent strip, certainly the first story and generally the Tharg stories were a bit rubbish with fantastic art...but if I'd had to vote I'd probably have gone for Tharg cos much as they are rubbish I love the idea of them. I loved the peck behind the scenes. As BPP said Tharg for the nostalgia .... as it happens I've not had to get close to voting as this one drew a lot of attention and while both got votes

Tharg the Mighty

smashed in and will be fighting thrill-suckers into the 2nd round.

It's like From Grace is a Banksy, and the Zero series is a bunch of tags next to it.

Possibly the greatest description of the difference between seres ever! ... which isn't to say I agree in this case specifically.

Film & TV / Re: What The Flux?
« on: 08 December, 2021, 09:06:53 AM »
(and BTW why didnt the Lupari, knowing the Flu ws coming, give Earth and the rest of the Universe for that matter the technology to block it)
I don’t know how many people here are familiar with Ryan George’s Pitch Meeting series on YouTube, but I can imagine him ripping into this series with much gusto.

Ripping into Flux, that's tight.

10
Stone Island seems like it might be one of the big loses in round 1 as we enter the final day of voting it looks like Armoured Gideon has a unassailable lead. Last day to change that and I'll announce the final result tomorrow.

11
So it looks like being universal won't trump being in charge of the Galaxies Greatest. One day to add your voice to the debate and I'll count up in the morning.

When I say Night Zero I mean ALL the Zeros - so Night Zero, Beyond Zero and Below Zero - why, oh why didn’t it have a nice easy title like ‘The Adventures of Tanner’ or ‘The Pointy Finger Go Kapow’ or similar. At least From Grace was nice and self contained!

General / Forum’s Favourite Thrill - Armageddon vs Hunted Rd 1 Heat 53

Well Armageddon falls into the great what if. There seemed to be grand plans for the series but it quickly fizzled out into nothing leaving the thrill a curious oddity. But Carlos art, so… Hunted also feels like it had more to say and do and might well come back? Though it's been a wee while.

Prog / Re: Prog 2261 - Never Look Back
« on: 07 December, 2021, 09:11:06 PM »
That's a fine final prog of the year, though strangely we have two stories going into the end of year Prog, which I always find a bit weird, but the schedule is the schedule and I ain't keepin' the traffic movin' so...

Let's get back to the positives.

Dredd is just plain good fun, wonderfully realised. Okay maybe running the idea to 3 parts, the last of which is double sized is stretching the joke a little too far. The underpinning story is quite weak too, though it hangs in there and Enormo Overdrive I or III is always welcome.

The Out remains terrifyingly wonderful. Just superb.

Scarlet Traces it'd have been a soft ending, but ending it would have been. As it is the leap ahead has left more doors open and I'm no longer sure where this story feels it can go now? Still its done what its done, looks incredible and has opened those doors. i guess were Brass Sun is a journey through worlds, Scarlet Traces is a journey through time...and when I think of it like that it works.

Dexter I'm enjoying this more and more, still significent questions, but if it keeps this momentum up it could find its place and pace again. Nice end to this segment and happy that this one seems to get to continue into the new year.

Good prog, maybe not quite as good as the last couple but still very good.

45 YEARS OF 2000 AD (May 2022)
To celebrate forty-five years of bringing Thrill-Power to earthlets, Tharg the Mighty has tasked forty-five of Earth's most popular comic and illustration artists to interpret the characters featured in the pages of the Galaxy's Greatest Comic, 2000 AD. Featuring all new work by Jamie Smart (Bunny vs Monkey), Hannah Templer (GLOW, TMNT), Michael Allred (Madman, Silver Surfer), Kevin O'Neill (League of Extraordinary Gentlemen), Racheal Stott (Star Wars, Doctor Who).
https://www.amazon.co.uk/45-Years-2000-AD-Anniversary/dp/1786185717/ref=sr_1_3?crid=37PHLP0437S50&keywords=best+of+2000ad

I'll cut out the middle man...

Ha! That looks like it will be immense fun.
I knew you’d say that.

Though to be fair Mike Allred would be exciting enough but JAMIE SMART in the Prog(ish) at last is just pant wettingly exciting. I had a little nerdgasm at that one I did.
