Something Wicked 2019

Zarjaz 36

FutureQuake 2020 (I have two stories in this one)

Always nice to know that you're not firing content out into a void  :lol:

I agree with everything being said about Kenneth Niemand’s old school Dredd (It’s always a good sign when Dredd doesn’t turn up until the end of part one): but also a shout out for the art. PJ Holden seems to have taken it to another level recently: I’m no expert, but that last panel looks a tricky angle to pull off, and it’s wonderfully dramatic.

It’s stuff like this that should be in the Regened progs...
Completely agree with the art - nicely the right side of cartoony and the last panel was a masterpiece in setting up an ominous lead in to the next episode.

I've never watched a single episode of Breaking Bad, but I have massively enjoyed every season of Better Call Saul

Birds of Prey

An astoundingly lazy, badly scripted, poorly put together pile of nonsense. I was willing to give this a try since I think Harley Quinn as a character has potential (even though I'm not really a big DC fan) and Margot Robbie has screen presence but this was just bad on so many levels. Harley Quinn has absolutely no character arc and remains pretty much exactly the same from the first minute to the last.

A waste of time.

Looks awesome - this could be a Prog cover  :thumbsup:

Absolutely nonsense - chasing "wayfinders" all over the place so you can find the mysterious Sith homeworld? They built one thousand Star Destroyers and fully crewed the whole armada - out of what? Fresh air? Surely someone would have noticed all the materials, the "recruited" soldiers being shipped out to the "Unknown Spaces" (god I loathe that term - it's so lazy)

In addition, unfortunately, I think Daisy Ridley is very uncoordinated and is basically not athletic at all. She must have had plenty of fencing or sword training during the process of shooting the three movies but she still wields that light sabre like someone trying to swat a wasp with a broom.


I remember really looking forward to the Force Awakens and it started of sooo well. The first thirty minutes were fantastic - I literally watched it with a massive smile of my face. Then we got rehash (Star Killer base), complete breaking of the rules of the universe that story is set in (the ludicrous Holdo manoeuver of the Last Jedi), confusing attempts to recycle old characters with no clear purpose and finally with this film, for me, just apathy and boredom.

I don't get the cover pun.
Maybe it's like "Phwoar! In the Sun" - harking back to the old days of third page titillation

Love that one - is that a Bredan McCarthy inspired helmet?

That's bloody great! Surely Tharg can still be interested?
Thanks very much - I really appreciate that.

It's in the back of my mind to submit through the usual channels - I just need to finish the pages I'm already committed to on other projects ... I really don't like to let people down

The advantage of the TB competition is that you get an answer then and there (even if it isn't the right one  ;) :lol:)

Well done to Robin Henley for winning the competition

Here are all the pages for my entry. I thought it might be interesting to see the story in it's entirety not just the first two pages.

I have two pieces of fan art in the 2000AD timeline section  :D

I've backed it.

One thing - I think it would have been better not to have a digital version and lowered the price of the printed version a bit.

Sometimes I think this is what comics should be, simple but well constructed art that can be pumped out quickly allowing the artist and writer to create a hefty volume of work. Sometimes I wonder if spending days on a page which will be read in minutes and worse forgotten nearly as quickly still if the story is poor is somehow missing the point

I would disagree with a previous comment about Chris Blythe's colours - I think he probably the best colourist currently working on 2000AD. Never heavy handed and always respectful of the artwork.
