Support your local bricks and mortar store if they stock it - that's what I do! After seeing the dog shredded copy in this progs letter page I wouldn't dare have it delivered. ( I don't own a dog but I have two cats who would do the same thing)

Don't think I ever knew his work before researching it after I saw in the prog that he'd passed away. Very impressed with what I've seen and my thoughts are with his family.

I hope Pat wouldn't

I think you might be sadly disappointed…

If someone in the public eye can't take criticism for there work, then yes, that is disappointing.

Film & TV / Re: Judge Dredd: Mega-City One - TV show announced!

Hopefully this will happen. The last Dredd film was fantastic and deserved a sequel. I'm sure someone's said this before me, but let's have a 2000ad cinematic/tv universe. There's such a wealth of material to draw from and if done correctly could put Marvel to shame!

I think what is irksome is that you've made 5 posts, all of them fairly negative towards a 2000AD creator, and not in a terribly constructive way either.

You could have said you would like to see some new writers/droids, but you certainly didn't need to take a pointless swipe at Pat Mills to do it.

Having two of your first three threads locked is not an auspicious start. Frankly I'm surprised this one hasn't been locked.

Yes, I completely agree with you. I think after being a regular reader back in the 80s and back on board the last six months - I may be looking back with rose tinted glasses, but I've been frustrated with all the recent Mills tales and even now I'm struggling to remember them. 

Don't take it personal that I'm complaining about his recent output and I hope Pat wouldn't, but I think it's fair to criticise an artist if their work has been sub-par.

It's a discussion board - what's the problem? Would it have been preferable if my first post had been - Deadworld sucked until the latest instalment, but now it's ace?

Sorry I ruffled feathers - I'm not creator baiting despite what certain members may think.

Pat gave birth to 2000ad and I can't thank him enough for that and his early stories. However, it appears that there is a lack of quality control with his latest tales and I can't help but feel that they are published simply because he wrote them!

Take a look back at the members prog reviews over the last few months. Slaine, ABC, Flesh, Defoe and the other one that was mainly excerpts from songs in its telling of the tale. I think you'll find most of the comments were unfavourable and the generally the worst thing in the prog.

Yes, I would love to new blood injected into these projects, wouldn't you?

Ok, apologies if the swear word was not acceptable - I didn't realise. I assume my question can still be asked though?

Pat is the granddaddy of 2000ad, there would be no prog without him. However, his stories lately have been severely lacking in coherence and storytelling.

I'm not the only one that feels this way. So the question is - Would the prog be better without his input?

General / Why was my Pat Mills topic locked?
« on: 31 May, 2017, 05:07:31 pm »
I'm not sure why the mods locked this. I thought it was a reasonable question going by the criticisms on the prog page!!!!! Please explain, or has mega city law filtered onto these message boards?

General / Should Pat Mills retire?
« on: 31 May, 2017, 04:40:53 pm »
I know I'm not the only one here who thinks that over the few years Pat had been treading water compared to his glory days!

When I was a kid I used to look forward to his strips as they were fresh and coherent. I loved the guy!!!! I even remember getting a pre published copy of Diceman because I went to school with his nephew and was passed some copies on.

I just can't help but feel that Pat is up his own arse now and the prog would be better without his input.
