Here is Dave's 3d rendering of his grail cover to prog 220
and his instructions are:
Here’s prog 220 in #stereoscopic 3D!

To see 3D on mobile:
- turn screen horizontal
- fill screen with photo
- put face up close
- relax focus
- pull face back slowly
- when you see 3 identical  images…

the middle pic will be in 3D!

The forum's very own Colin YNWA joins me to discuss the most 2000AD comic DC ever published, Outcasts by Wagner, Grant & Kennnedy. A 12 issue maxi-series from the 1980s, a future shocker indeed!

I've said it before and I'll say it again

"I'm sorry"

Eamonn is of course insightful as ever and will make this worth listening too so don't worry too much. We do of course have a knock out tourney to decide the best episode*

Not listened to the podcast yet, and only ever managed to read the first issue of Outcasts (I was young and it was very expensive at the time) but I remember thinking, even back then, that this was the most 2000AD thing I'd seen 2000AD creators do for US comics.

Great episode.

There is some original Outcasts artwork for sale on Cam Kennedy's website, but since nothing is currently for sale this might be a moot point

I probably should have read the introduction to the IDW Cam Kennedy collection before we recorded Outcasts.

Midnight Surfer remains one of the key texts in the Dredd canon thanks to Cam’s art. I will argue to my dying day that Mega-City One never lived and breathed in quite the same way before that story.

Oh great find Eamonn. For some reason I don't own this I really should!
