Books & Comics / Re: Luther Arkwright

I just scored Arkwright integral as well, wonderful stuff,beautifully done,hadn`t read Heart of the Empire before but enjoyed it very much, i have the original valkyrie series but they are falling apart with age along with my copies of books 1,2 and 3 which had that really bad binding that caused the book to disintegrate upon the first reading! Arkwright integral was expensive but a bloody good investment.

This thread brought back memories of the heady days of Joe Soap,Manix,Doomlord etc.............magic stuff! Quite like Clint Langleys modern take on that particular artform! I remember a really dodgy Nemesis and Torquemada photostrip in 2000ad many moons ago

I remember at school in the late 90s a girl in my class won a competition with Kerrang or some such and got to meet Anthrax drummer Charlie Benante who gave her a drawing he had done of Judge Dredd

Recently rediscovered a few bands from back in the day, Flowered Up,weekender great tune great video Life with Brian was a superb album,Pop will eat itself who are a bit dated now but still a few good tunes, Meat Beat Manifesto still ahead of their time and Nitzer Ebb who sound like Depeche mode on Crystal Meth

Oh man, I really miss those weet(a)bix skinheads.

All this time forgetting and you come along and rake it all up again.  Sob!

Oh my gosh,I totally remember the weetabix skinheads! Dunk and Brian etc,one of the most bizarre ad campaigns ever.For the unitiated they were actual weetabix skinheads with docs jeans braces and white t-shirts.

Lapsed in the 90s but still keep a big stack from about 78 to 92, have recently been abusing amazon for a plethora of graphic novels etc, and as a kid I would have loved to see myself in the 21st century as a 41 yr old on an interactive forum on the "information superhighway" I was lucky to see the golden age of bolland mcmahon et al and then fabry, bisley, hicklenton etc, I even still have all 7 revolver comics and a few issues of crisis, out of touch with the modern 2000ad but am finding my way back into it, im glad I lived to see a decent dredd film! I spent many hours in the 80s drawing posters for one!

Film & TV / Re: Last movie watched...
« on: 24 February, 2017, 02:16:11 AM »
The last movie I watched was a gem from 1984 called brother from another planet, highly recommend it, I also watched hardware which has dated rather badly and was a rip off from an old kev o neill futureshock called shok, however it did have lemmy from motorhead as a taxi driver and featured stigmata by ministry in the soundtrack

Hi folks, am new to this. First got bit by the 2000ad bug circa 1980 or 81 or thereabouts, I was off school with the flu and my mum flung a comic at me with a kev o neill nemesis cover totally unsuitable for a 4 or 5 year old! I was hooked. Just finished former tharg Steve Macmanus autobiography, thoroughly enjoyed it
