Loving the Durham Red reboot out of the gate. What a brilliantly constructed opening episode. That's how to start a new strip with a bang. Writing and art perfectly in tune. Can't wait to see what comes next. The Ezquerra dollars are a lovely easter egg.

Skip Tracer is setting up an intriguing world. Here's hoping it finds its groove and delivers on its promise.

Michael Carroll as always doing a great job with Dredd. This one looks like its going to be a good one.

I'm enjoying Survival Geeks to be honest. Its a refreshing strip for the prog, with lovely art.

Deadworld is finally beginning to interest me. Have found it hard to date to drum up much enthusiasm for the strip, but I'm starting to feel optimistic about this post-apocalyptic story, if that's not a contradiction.

One of the strongest progs overall in a while, IMHO.

  • Brian Corcoran: Book IV: OUT. Great teaser for what could have come next. Lovely linework.
  • Adrian Bamforth: Halo, Space Pirate. This is the one we all wanted to read.
  • Mark Higgins: The Ballad. Love the idea of an elderly Halo reminiscing.

Brilliant! Love the punchline.

Here's my Halloween effort from earlier this evening:

Another great episode the review of Mach One being the highlight.  :D
Dr. Phil makes a great addition to the roster.

Help! / Re: Sagepay payment error in online shop

Thanks Michael, yes it was just a matter of registering the card with Verified by Visa although the SagePay error page doesn't actually mention that. Sorted out now.

Help! / Sagepay payment error in online shop
« on: 17 July, 2014, 10:54:48 AM »
I'm trying to buy the digital Meg in the 2000AD online store but have twice been halted by the following when Sagepay is processing my credit card:

"There has been an error processing your credit card
3D-Authentication failed. This vendor's rules require a successful 3D-Authentication.
Please try again and if problems persist, please try another payment method"

I've Googled this an the results are all useless and vague. How do I get my card "3D-Authenticated"? Has anyone else had to deal with this? Any suggestions?

I know there are probably financial reasons for not having a PayPal option on the 2000AD shop but godalmighty it would make purchases so much less frustrating and smooth. Just sayin'

Great idea and a nice tribute even if only for one issue.

General / Re: Was there ever a 2000AD equivalent of this photo?

Would love to see group photos of Mills, Wagner, McMahon, Grant etc. back in 1977. But I presume because they never worked together in the same place there was never a sense of occasion to warrant a photo like that. And the fact that the IPC comics back then typically had a short life span maybe 2000AD was just seen as another project to work on before moving on.

Not completely related but I do love this photo of the Deadline studio featuring Brett Ewins, Jamie Hewlett and Steve Dillon.

And on a completely separate tangent this photo is one of my favourite group shots: Spielberg, John Milius and Lucas checking out the Apocalypse Now script on the set of Jaws:

I wouldn't deride a mention in a Guardian "what's hot" list as a way of picking up new readers. Most of my music/podcasts/books come from these sort of list because I, like most of the general public, am a lazy fecker who wants his culture handed to him on a plate.

This story regurgitates itself every year or two. Still it'd be interesting to see what sort of games and movies would come out of that move. Can't imagine Disney condoning this sort of fanboy film though (which GW have given their blessing to apparently):

Is there a link for that story?

Megazine / Re: Suggestions for the floppy
« on: 20 June, 2014, 11:30:59 AM »
A slight thread highjack, but I can't see where else to ask. I'm thinking of starting with the Meg once more but am inclining towards a digital subscription. I assume that means I'll miss out on the supplements, but I don't know for sure. Who can clear it up for me?

Supplements are included with the digital Megazines, Earthlet!

Would it be very awkward to split the Megazine and supplement into two separate files for download? I usually end up splitting them into two .cbz files anyway after purchase so that I can find them on the device later on without having to root through each meg.
