WAHOOO managed to implant an image - which I failed so miserably to do over in the competition thread.

The problem as you can see with what I've need is the second to last panel needs a bit of fiddling as well otherwise it looked a bit odd so I resized the lawyer to fill the panel a little better.

Does this work any better than Richard's (ability to adjust properly aside) ... to be honest I'm not all all sure it does

You could also have the final word ballon cross the panel boarder into the final panel making even more obivously a commentary on Dredd's departure?

Colin, if you don't get cast as an actor, we may still need help with crew, if you're up for it?

Yeah I'd be up for getting involved. Will be e-mailing a photo and will leave contact details just get in touch when you need a lackey!

Tour of Duty (or an accompanying strip somewhere) is going to be as much about Hershey as Dredd.

Yeah the set up in Under New Management certainly suggested as much. Unless Hershey is going to ask to accompany Dredd but I think they (the new management) would want to keep them apart. I'm intrigued by how the Hershey story will be told, with in the 2000 ad Dredd strip or will this be a clever way to cross it over into the Megazine and have it run in there (though you'd think word of this would have been out if that was the case)

If you're looking for something a little different self contained stories by a host of name artists with a consistent writing team then you can't go far wrong with Jonah Hex. Brillant Western.

For regular superhero action that by and large side steps all the continuity and offers something different Gail Simone and Nicola Scott's Secret Six is about the best out there at the minute I'd suggest?

General / Re: Mark Millar plans new 2000AD-like UK anthology

It's about time a serious Comic reared its ugly head no matter who is heading the title.

He's going to need deep pockets or rich backers. I wrote a business plan for something of this type about ten years ago and the main problem is cashflow ... even though my product would have broken even at a paltry 11K sales per issue, there's no way to avoid ending up about £500K in a hole before you've seen a penny in revenue. I imagine that number would probably be a lot higher now ...

Cheers

Jim

According to all reports with numerous movie deals for creator owned material in the bank Mark Millar could easily do this himself if he choise and he's not short of a rich friend or two who's ointo comics if he was looking for other investors. I'd guess the biggest stumbling block for him would be time?

Edmund Dehn looks fantastic! Errr even if we don't get cast will you be able to give the location at some point as being nerdy and based in Sheffield I'm thinking I mmight pop down to the shoot or would that just be really annoying?

With a massive thank you to 'Banners' for getting sorting this for me, what a complete star he is, here's the coloured version of the entry I did a lot earlier.

Taking Buttonman's advice I stuck with Paint and this turned out to be a fun little learning lesson about colouring. Its far too bright (lesson number 1) and there's no real sense of unity to it (lesson number 2) but what the heck its been fun doing this in snatched bursts in the office.

Instead of 100 Progs can I take all the annuals, specials and yearbooks as I think they'd make better raft building material (...er would an annual float?)

Ok so this has all got a bit embarrassing! I've just tried to post an image for the competition and its not working. I read the instructions and everything. I posted the image using a URL from Picasa Web Albums and most people seem to use Photobucket (judging from right clicking on a few images that I have). Is there a reason Photobucket will work and another photo display site won't????

Anyway I also tried to report my message to the mods to get it deleted but I'm not allowed to so could someone report it to get it tidied up. I'll try again later!

I know these sales figures need to be taken with a hugh dose of salts but if these are anything like correct this is very disappointing.
