Good one Arrisarris - but not the one I had in mind. I'm thinking of something from many years ago.
It may have been the cliffhanger to some TV episode - someone turns a spacesuit round and *gasp* theres a skelly inside!

Fantastic episode.
Mr Moffatt really knows how to ramp up the spookiness! The repeated "who turned out the lights" was almost as creepy as those gasmask kiddies asking "are you my mummy?" (thought he repetition 'Donna Noble has been saved etc' did go on a wee bit long IMHO)

I'm not surprised Managaax's sprog was phased! That's what WHO is for - I used to regularly have dalek nightmares!

Finally, that image of a white skull in a white spacesuit helmet really reminds me of something,an old book cover or comic, but I can't put my finger on it - I've tried a google image search, but no luck - any ideas?

Any preview images available? Can't find anything on the SFX website but "X-ray Dredd head" is an intriguing description!!

Artie Gruber was one of the iconic images that really stuck in my mind as a kid - that eyeball!
In fact, I think that it was the artie gruber stories that kept me reading in the 70s when I may have abandonned 2000ad for Krazy comic or the like. I had that starscan from prog 74 on my wall for years (That's why my old progs are worth jackshit these days!)
That 3D version form Mike Carrol is fantastic!

You're right - I've just done a brief seach and found the names of the various creators -= I was working from my dope-addled memories of the 90s when I read lots of comics but didn't collect them (apart from the progs which were secretly accumulating at my mum's house!)
Tank Girl was such an icon back then , that I really don't want a re-tread - the movie was bad enough!

Still, without hewlett its a  WRONG THING!!

Tank Girl in the Meg - oh god please can we not let her die in peace? Without hewlett/milligan's trademark insanity, what's the point?

Excited about a further volume of Old Bill though - the first was  a masterpiece.

Happy birthday mate!

Congratulations in sticking with 2000ad, 'cos you must have started reading during the dodgy years when most of us were gritting our teeth and sticking with it - ie buying the prog for Wagner's Dredd and trying to ignore the likes of "Chronos Carnival" and "Tao de Moto"(Thanks to Andrew (worldshown) Goldsworthy for the ready reference of 90s thrills on the link below).
Good to know the progs have got better since(and I hope you've had fun discovering classic thrills from the past)

*sigh* I feel Old!!

If you're a regular reader of Private Eye, you may be aware that the City of London Police (who govern the 'square mile') tried to prosecute a 15 year old boy for holding up a sign saying that scientology is a cult - when senior officers had been treated to thousands of pounds of hospitality by the scientologists, including invites to meet tom cruise)
Thankfully, the case was thrown out, but it worries me how much influence these nutjobs have.

these anti-scientology protestors recently picketed the Manchester scientolgy office - I was amazed to find Deansgate full of V-for-Vendetta lookalikes, but they were getting a fantastic response from passers by.

Ha Ha - I used to make all my little schoolmates play captain scarlet (with me as the cap, natch) and then piss them all off 'cos I was the only one who was (cue music) IN-DE-STRUCTABLE!
But more than anything I wanted to be a tomorrow person (showing my age there!)

I second that about the art comps - the standard is mighty impressive! Makes me wish I wasn't so kak-handed with a pencil

I love this board!

At first I thought it would just be a place I'd visit on the odd occasion to chat/find out about prog-related gubbins, but the scope and variety of the topics is fantastic. Now I tend to drop in nearly every day even if I don't post.

You're all such lovely people and Wake was dead helpful with technical stuff when I first joined. Long may the fanzone endure!

Looks pretty cool.
About as plausible as Space 1999, but that was cool also.
Flying saucers and nazis, what more could you want? Throw in some sharks and you've got a freeview channel.
Liked the song too - anyone know who that is?
