Cartoonist extraordinaire Lew Stringer has put up a post on his Blimey! blog about a new Dave Gibbons interview at IGN.  It also includes a little preview of his work on 2000AD's new collection of his classic Dan Dare strips:


For anyone interested, Lew also brought Dave on board for an issue of satirical kids' comic Oink! in the late 80s to draw Lew's The Superhero's Day Off strip.  In a shameless plug for my own blog you can see this marvellous piece of his work here:


General / Sci-Fi Special - part of subscription?
« on: 22 May, 2015, 11:23:39 PM »
Hey all, I only subscribed back in September and this year's Sci-Fi Special is due soon.  Can anyone tell me if it's part of the subscription, as in does it arrive automatically?  If so is it charged to the next bill or does it charge at some other random point separately?  I've just had a bill and it's the normal amount.

Or do I just nip to the shop and grab it?

Books & Comics / Oink!'s take on Dredd
« on: 04 May, 2015, 04:51:20 PM »
Hey all, thought you might like to see this.

Many moons ago one of 2000AD's stablemates was the humour comic, Oink! (a couple of issues were given away with Progs too).  I've been writing a blog about it for two years now, which has surprised me as my attention span for any previous projects died within months.  But this one has kept on going and I've even become friendly with a lot of the writers and cartoonists (which still amazes me!), including the one who drew this cover and strip which I recently covered:

The late and very great Mark Rodgers supplies the script and Steve Gibson the artwork for the one-off strip inside.  Mark was always doing this in Oink!, but it was always meant in a respectful way.  Whether it was the Dandy and Beano, Whizzer and Chips or 2000AD, they were parodies and Mark was a firm believer that you parody what you admire, otherwise it's satire and there's a huge difference.  He was a massive fan of comics and here's his take on Dredd:

There's a couple of other Dredd parodies in Oink! which I'll dig out for you, one is coming up soon where Dredd himself, rather than the pig version, comes up against Psycho Gran!

Welcome to the board / Hello - New 'old' reader
« on: 20 April, 2015, 10:57:59 PM »
Hi everyone,

I'm still a new reader... although can I still say that since I've been reading since Prog 1900 from last year and since then I've subscribed to both comics (actually did so within a couple of weeks), got my letter printed in Prog 1917, received the gorgeous When Judges Go Bad graphic novel for that, also won Phase One and Two of Zenith through the comic's FB page and have bought and consumed the first two volumes of the Judge Dredd Complete Case Files.  Also been invited to and met up with the Belfast 2000AD Discussion Group lot once so far too.  You could say I'm rather taken with 2000AD!  And all at the tender young age of, um, 37.

I've had a look around the board and it seems very different to other discussion forums I've joined in the past (though I see I'm not the only one who thinks this) and it actually looks like a nice place to hang out during work... I mean at home!

One quick question, how do I edit my profile and add a picture?  Or is that something else we can't do until we become a full member?  If so, no worries, I completely understand the reasoning behind that.

Looking forward to getting stuck in and getting to know people,
