“Hi! My name’s Gordon Rennie, and I like screwing with collectors of 2000 AD trade paperbacks, by entertainingly hurling a single-episode epilogue out there after the final trade of a series is on sale!”


Unless of course it's a prologue for a new story...

In election news, Labour is going to put Yer Dad on Twitter, which as long term plans go is up there with that guy in Jurassic World who told scientists to make a dinosaur that can turn invisible and use machine guns.

I'm holding out - I reckon we can get Labour to throw in a free PS4 and a puppy if we keep threatening to vote Conservative.

I just laze in bed on Saturday morning until the letterbox goes, then grab the prog, make a cup of coffee and go back to bed and read it :)

Unless the prog doesn't arrive, in which case it's just not worth getting out of bed anyway...


Whoops, looks like something went wrong.

...is what I get from the shop. I'm only interested in five out of the bundle, might just have to buy from a real shop  :o

I wonder if Rebellion will get them into Asda etc?

It did seem to be down earlier, but appears to be working for me now.

1995 - 1999 - WTF are they doing???

1995-1999 is the embarrasing teenage years that we'd all rather forget...

And the music for Nemesis was composed by C64 legend, Rob Hubbard.

Reyn Ouwehand did a great version of that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjildCmknCE

For all history buffs and people out there watch Chernobyl.  This is great 5 part mini-series on the what and how of the nuclear disaster. This was the bullet or the event that started the fall of Soviet Union.

Yes, it's amazing. There's also an accompanying podcast (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rUeHPCYtWYQ , but also available from other podcast places)

I particularly remember Pinball Dreams and Pinball Fantasies on the Commodore Amiga being absolutely fantastic.

Yes, they were great. The Pro-pinball series was very good as well.

Looks like the same artist as the Novels, which is Lisa Henke.

Interesting. Is that a thing with comics these days? Are layouts increasingly becoming a series of horizontal layers? Is it eventually leading to 'responsive' layouts where panels are shuffled around according to screen ratios?

Not that I've noticed. Even digital-only comics still have vertical / non-square panels. Two pages before those Dredd Helmet panels there are some diagonal panels. And even that Dredd Helmet page has speech balloons that overlap previous panels. And don't get me started on the layout of Scarlet Traces and Kingmaker - at one point Crixus' cloak is used as a panel border...

Is this series kind of like Dan Dare?

No, it's the story of a Sci-fi Roman-esque Empire.
