General / The Real Life Johnny Alpha
« on: 10 August, 2012, 11:15:58 AM »
Alright he doesn't have Strontium poisoning and he can't see into people's souls, but young Harvey Webb has to wear sunglasses at all times.



It's because of his achromatopsia. Unfortunately his younger sister Megan also has it. You can read more about the Webb's here (unfortunately it's a Daily Mail link but a great feature) or on video here http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-sussex-19066732

Aside from the Johnny Alpha link (it's too early to introduce Harv to SD - he's much more interested in hoovers at the moment. Yes hoovers), the specialist school that Harvey goes to is trying to raise £100,000 in 100 days in order to expand.

Can anyone here help spread the word? http://www.littleheroesappeal.com/how-you-can-help


Oh and here's Harvey trying to teach Olly Murs how to play guitar

Help! / Trying to contact Steve Turner

He's a guy I used to work with on a b2b mag (he was allergic to deadlines at the time though) who I know knows some of the creative talent behind Tooth.

Someone told me he'd washed up here. Anyone got an email addy for him?

News / Big Finish sale
« on: 07 December, 2010, 01:04:27 PM »
Big Finish are having another sale. I'm not too sure why their audio dramas haven't sold well, but they're of an extremely high quality.

In the December Sale the four latest (and probably last) dramas The Crime Chronicles are available for just £15. I paid £30 for these earlier this year and was well happy with them, so this is even more of a steal:

http://www.bigfinish.com/SPECIAL-OFFER-Judge-Dredd-Crime-Chronicles-CD-Subscription

It includes:
1.01 Stranger Than Truth - featuring Slim Dickens
1.02 Blood Will Tell
1.03 The Devil's Playground (my favourite)
1.04 Double Zero (feasturing PSi Anderson)

Also for an even bigger £10 steal are four of the original full cast plays:

Strontium Dog - Down to Earth, starring Simon Pegg as Johnny Alpha
Judge Dredd - Get Karter!
Judge Dredd - I Love Judge Dredd
Strontium Dog - Fire from Heaven

Get Karter is okay, but the other three are totally brilliant. The SD ones are hilarious too, mainly thanks to Middenface NcNulty.

Not been read the Prog for over a year now. What's the quality been like?

Books & Comics / And Another Thing - Hitchikers Guide To the Galaxy Book 6
« on: 03 September, 2009, 11:45:57 AM »
Just discovered there's a Sixth Hitchhikers book been written. It's due out next month.

It's written by Eoin Colfer of Artemis Fowl fame.

Can someone who has read any of his books assuage my fears and tell me that they're up to scratch?

General / Remainder shop
« on: 21 July, 2009, 03:03:37 PM »
Just picked up a couple of old Rebellion collections in the local remainder bookshop near me.

£2.99 each or two for £5.

I picked up Family, Xtnct, Asylum, Banzai Battalion, Red Seas 1 and, erm, the making of Judge Dredd: Dredd v Death.

There were loads available. One of the most recent ones was probably Nikolai Dante's Gentlemen Thief.

I didn't notice until on the way out that they also had Fiends of the Eastern Front  :'(

Still collections in remainder shops - bad sign or inevitability?

Suggestions / Dredd stories adapted for audio
« on: 07 July, 2009, 03:13:53 PM »
With the news that Big Finish are releasing three new original Judge Dredd audio stories this autumn, there has been a discussion on the Big Finish forums about what storylines would make a good transferral.

I seem to remember the Radio 1 versions  of the Apocalypse War and the Day the Law Died were a bit... well rubbish. But does the board have any suggestions over what storyline they would like to see be given the Big Finish treatment?

He doesn't come across as very happy. Apart from when talking about his own work.

General / Can anyone identify this series?
« on: 16 March, 2009, 12:31:20 PM »
I have been asked this elsewhere

I remember reading a story in 2000ad a few years back, it was written by either Grant Morrison or Garth Ennis and it was about God leaving his throne in Heaven and all of the time periods crashing together at one point. I think Sherlock Holmes was looking for God to kill him or something. Anyone know what this was called and if it's available to buy anywhere?

Anyone any ideas? I'm stumped.

Film & TV / Who to be the next Doctor? Find out tomorrow.

The name of the actor who will replace David Tennant as Doctor Who will be announced on Saturday.

Tennant said in October that he would stand down from the show after filming four special episodes in 2009.

His replacement - the eleventh Doctor of the TV series - will be revealed in a Doctor Who Confidential programme on BBC One at 1735 on 3 January.

The casting was confirmed over Christmas and filming for the 2010 series begins in the summer.

Tennant is due to begin shooting the first of his four specials this month, just weeks after surgery on his back.

The last of these episodes is expected to run in early 2010.

Surely it will be Paterson Joseph..

Books & Comics / Colour Case Files - £17.99
« on: 11 September, 2008, 09:41:23 AM »
The 2000AD Books website has a bit of info about Case Files 12 and it's becoming colour. However it also gives the price as £17.99. Is this the price that they all will be in the future? This isn't an ALL colour issue after all.

JUDGE DREDD: THE COMPLETE CASE FILES 12

By John Wagner, Alan Grant and various artists.

Mega-City One: the future metropolis bustling with life and every crime imaginable. Keeping order are the Judges, a stern police force acting as judge, jury and executioner. Toughest of all is Judge Dredd. He is the law and these are his stories. Volume 12 in this exciting, best-selling series collects together more classic Dredd from the pages of 2000 AD, including the stories Hitman, Full Mental Jacket, Bloodline and the first full-colour Dredd strip, Twister.

I do like the way they convey the change on the cover. Nice and subtle, yet effective.
