Classifieds / Selling: 2000ad and Megazine collections - Everything must go
« on: 22 September, 2013, 12:49:09 PM »
Due to the usual reasons of space and time I'm looking to offload my collection.

I'm going to hold onto issues 1 - 100 but other than that every issue from 101 to 1836 is included in this collection.

Judge Dredd Megazine
Every issue from 1 - 337 is included

I also have all of the 2000ad sci-fi specials and winter specials, all of the Judge Dredd mega specials and all of the Daily Star Judge Dredd collections.

I don't really want to get into selling the odd prog or meg here and there so I'd rather these went in collections.

All of these items are in, at least, Very Good condition. I live in Essex and can be fairly flexible when it comes to arranging collection or delivery etc.

Basically, I'm open to offers via PM.



General / 2000ad and Meg combined digital subscription
« on: 29 March, 2013, 09:09:16 AM »

Does anyone know how I get a combined digital subscription to both the meg and 2000ad? Is such a thing even possible as I cannot find that option anywhere on the site or app.


General / Storing comics in my garage...
« on: 06 September, 2007, 08:38:09 PM »
...am I asking for trouble?

My whole comics collection has been relegated to first the loft and now the garage (bloody children now living in the spare rooms). Everything is bagged and boxed and raised up from the floor but I keep thing the roof is bound to spring a leak.

I'm sure I'm not the first to face this problem so I wondered if anyone had any bright comic protecting ideas?

I've already lost my 2000ad collection one and can't bear (or afford) to go through that again.

Off Topic / Ending an Ebay auction early...
« on: 17 August, 2007, 04:28:57 PM »
A potential buyer has contacted me about one of my auctions and asked me to name my price and end the auction early. This seems bad form to me, particularly as bidding has started, so I'm going to refuse. But I just wondered what the general opinion of this kind of eBay shenanigan is?

Off Topic / Photoshop question
« on: 15 June, 2007, 11:19:50 AM »
Mornin'. Does anyone know which brush style in photoshop gives a magic marker effect? I'm thinking Pantone Tria marker on bleedproof layout paper...


Off Topic / In Dillman's Grove

My wife asked me to recite her some poetry last night and the best I could do was...

Pointy birds,
oh pointy pointy.
Anoint my head
anointy 'nointy...

I'm 40 next year.

General / Size matters - Retro 2000ad t-shirts question
« on: 07 December, 2006, 02:01:35 PM »
Does anyone know if the new classic t-shirts are available anywhere other than on this site? All sizes other than XXL seem to be sold out, and that's no good becasue I want to show off my manly shape to the chicks.

This is great but it's driving me mental!


The first step is to click on the grey lid on the right and then click on the yellow arrow below it.


there are 3 different types of projectile, the exploding ones are bad

Off Topic / Techie (possibly photoshop) question re prog 1493 cover
« on: 28 June, 2006, 04:17:38 PM »
On last weeks cover, the one with the family of aliens reading back issues of 2000ad, the design droids have cleverly distorted the covers of the comics being read so that they look curved. Does anyone know how this would be done? Is it a photoshop filter? I need to do the exact same thing today on a job I'm working on.

General / Good review of Dredd TPBs on Aintitcool
« on: 02 June, 2006, 03:35:36 PM »
There's a really favourable review of the Dredd Rebellion trades here, they also link back into the shop section of this very site...


General / Durham Red TPBs
« on: 25 May, 2006, 06:56:04 PM »
Hi, has anyone seen the new Durham Red TPBs in the shops? I got The Art of Kenny Who? yesterday but that was apparently published a month later than the 2 Durham Red ones... anyway, just trying to decide whether or not go to Gosh! at lunch time and spend loads of cash I don't really have.

Off Topic / another bomb alert?
« on: 26 July, 2005, 06:04:14 PM »
Just been speaking to my missus on the phone. We live in Walthamstow, NE London, and Jules was ringing to tell me that our road had been blocked off both ends this morning, that there was about 20 armed police up and down our street and that what looked like a bomb disposal unit had entered a house practically opposite ours. She doesn't know anymore than this but the police have now gone and there didn't seem to be any arrests.

Jules is stuck at home with our two boys and I am starting to get more and more certain that we have to move out of London. If we do i daresay I'll still have to commute in through Liverpool Street but I think my mind is made up now.

Off Topic / What the hell is a Hollaback girl anyway?
« on: 13 July, 2005, 09:22:42 PM »
That's what I want to know.

Off Topic / Has Santa got a dirty secret hidden in his sack?
« on: 11 July, 2005, 05:58:52 PM »
Working in advertising I often hear rubbish spouting from the mouths of suits when we're presenting advertising concepts to them eg. "I don't like green" or "I don't like humour". Had one the other day which really took the biscuit.

We're having to do adverts for a very well known high street retailer for their Xmas temporary staff recruitment campaign, the headline was "Get a better position this Christmas" and the visual idea was Santa sitting on a little boys lap in his grotto reading off HIS christmas list and the boy looking very disgruntled. The suits took one look at this and it was 'ARRGGGHHHH - PAEDOGEDDON!" I couldn't believe, I did argue that this is Santa! and that all over the country little boys and girls will be sitting on his lap this christmas but they weren't having it - as far as they were concerned this Santa was a paedophile.

Is it me or is Santa the new Michael Jackson?
