Brian Bolland celebrated his 70th on the 26 of March. Here is a article displaying some of his awesome work:


Books & Comics / Rok Of The Reds
« on: 03 March, 2021, 04:37:49 AM »
I have backed the kickstarter for Rok the God. It was a great read. Now I see that Rok Of The Reds is finally available in digital format and my question is, is it worthwhile getting if you have already read Rok the God? I am quite tempted since this is John Wagner for crying out loud.

Other Reviews / Revere
« on: 13 February, 2021, 09:13:58 AM »
With Rebellion deciding to release certain series digitally it gives me time to revisit the selected few. One of those is Revere. I will be honest, and it is one of those series which I frankly cannot remember anything about. I am not a big fan of Simon Harrison work and thus never read it with any vigour. With my original collection gone I lost the opportunity to read it as an adult. I decided I will read it with an open mind. So here are my views:
At the end it is weird, wacky, dystopian, surreal johnsmitheen tale. Maybe one of my earlier problems was more related to a lost in translation. I always preferred the more straight-forward action-oriented stories and this was a different beast. My final conclusion is that I can recommend this, and I did enjoy it the second time around. If you like John Smith’s work get this; if you are a Simon Harrison fan, then get this. The art I found much better than I can remember. The colour schema used by Simon suites his work rather than his strong B/W ink-work. 

General / The Judges Helmet
« on: 25 January, 2021, 01:19:29 PM »
I saw a picture of an upcoming strip on Dredd by Chris Weston (pic below). When actually did the Judges helmet change from the roundest form to the more edgy design? Was the transition in a specific story ? or did it just happened over time?

From Chris Weston's twitter:

Coming soon to @2000ad: Judge Dredd talks a stroll down Memory Lane... but will it lead to danger?

(Of course it does! It's Judge Bloody Dredd, innit?!)

Script and art by yours truly. I'll let you know what Prog its in once I know.

Books & Comics / Devlin Waugh in the prog

I never knew that Devlin Waugh had a run in the prog. How good is it and is it worth getting the Devlin Waugh Swimming in Blood graphic novel containing these stories?

General / What happened to Gerry
« on: 22 January, 2021, 02:41:12 PM »
I always wondered why Gerry Finley-Day left Rogue Trooper. I never got a clear answer. It was almost like he was moved out and after this move Rogue Trooper was never the same. Yes, I am Rogue Trooper and Gerry fan, so just wondering.

Books & Comics / Essential Judge Dredd Apocalypse War
« on: 13 January, 2021, 02:24:45 PM »
For the upcoming release of Essential Judge Dredd Apocalypse War I noticed that the collection is going to be in all colour. Now I never read the original run when it was first published. Was it then already all colour or just this first two pages of each episode?

Other Reviews / Armoured ‘ANNIHILATE!’ Gideon Book One
« on: 09 January, 2021, 02:31:56 PM »
This is one of those classics thrills which I always wanted to re-read but did not have access to the material. It is great news now that we will have this available in a digital format for the first time (I am also looking forward to the other digital first titles)

What really stood-out for me in Armoured Gideon is the amazing art of Simon Jacob. His art really carries the story which is also a quite an interesting premise.  Armoured Gideon if you do not know is demon-slaying robot with an awesome vocabulary that consists out of one word “Annihilate”.

The digital version also contains the following shorts collected for the first time: ‘No, No, Nanette’ from 2000 AD Prog 722, ‘Starhavon’s Edge’ from the 1990 2000 AD Sci Fi Special and ‘Making Movies’ from the 1992 2000 AD Sci Fi Special.

So my question is why are you waiting to download it?
