The phrase "couldna organise a piss-up in Perth" hings low oo'er the thread...

Mind you, ‘a punch of Scotsmen’ seems like a reasonable collective noun.

I always thought it was 'a heidbang o Scots'.

Suggestions / Re: What if the Megazine had a different remit?
« on: 03 June, 2021, 11:46:13 PM »
I'm not really on board with the whole 'Megazine should be all Dredd-world stuff' idea anyway. 'All Dredd-world' can get a bit ho-hum pretty quick- I sometimes think it's the Meg's Achilles Heel. I buy anthology comics because I like variety, once that variety starts getting restricted for no actual concrete reason beyond mere words, it just sucks a little bit of the joy out of it.

I liked it when we had Black Siddha, Fiends- Stalingrad, Bendatti Vendetta etc- even American Reaper in principle (if it hadn't turned out to be such a repetitive, self-indulgent, laborious, never-ending yawn-fest). There's been a lot of good non-Dredd world stuff in the Meg over the years.

It's already different enough from 2K with higher page count episodes allowing for a different approach to the story telling- more room to explore more complex or nuanced stories without it taking a gazillion episodes and the need for an episode ending every 5 pages. It also allows writers to indulge some ideas that might get trimmed from shorter page counts.
That, plus the text articles/ interviews and the bagged reprint or other stuff in the floppies (I'd take more strip over articles any day but at least it's mostly relevant and interesting enough so it's fine). It all feels different to the weekly anyway so that it doesn't need to be hemmed in by artificial 'remit boundaries'.

'A good monthly anthology comic from The House of Tharg with an extra Dredd for those with upgraded Thrill buffers' is enough of a remit for me. I just don't get this burning desire to 'differentiate' it from the weekly just because an editor said so back in 1990 or whatever- that sounds like a bit religion to me. lol

Maybe it's a perception of 'difference' that keeps the other 50% of 2k readership away from the Meg?
