I wish these youtubers had decent editors. I tend to shy away from anything over the twenty minute mark. The amount of videos where you think "Why would I spend 60 minutes listening to a critique of a film that's only 100 minutes long?" is staggering.

Apologies I should have posted the wiki link for anyone that may be interested. The PDF is available to download from here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_2000_AD_stories

It depends on what you are trying to achieve.

The second version is a smoother read and has a bit more action. I think the second one also felt more like a Dredd story and less like fan fiction.   

Fair enough. It'll be interesting to see if Frank and Sharky concur... and I suspect they will.

I write fanfiction (for zarjaz mostly) that is meant to be fan fiction, so I certainly wouldn't take that as an insult.

I was involved in writing and editing fan material for Warpstone (a prozine in all but pay, for Warhammer Fantasy Roleplayer). James Wallis, one of WFRPs former licence holders, said of Warpstone, "From its earliest days it's produced material of a quality that would put a lot of actual games publishers to shame" so I'd never take fan-anything as an insult.

You'll come up with some more - just use your loaf!

So Prog 1200 comes and, well we'll get tot he content in a bit but man I'm no fan of the format.

And as the logo thread is a hot property right now I'm also no fan of the mast head either.

Also Chris Blythe whose colour I often love and admire seems to be doing a little too much shiney shiny at this time too. Don't remember this lasting.

Right old group me tonight aren't I!

Was he joking?  Otherwise I'd be tempted to spend too long trying to map Sooner or Later, Bad Company, The Dead, Freaks, Tribal Memories, Shadows, Bix Barton, Hewligan's Haircut, Rogan Gosh, Skin, Johnny Nemo, Strange Days, Animal Man, Shade, Enigma, Tank Girl: the Odyssey, Hellblazer, Egypt and Greek Street to The Dubliners, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Exiles, Ulysses and Finnegans Wake.

The Tank Girl is the only one I can imagine being easy to match up!

On the 2000 AD wikipedia page there is a pdf of what strips have been printed up to Prog 2100. I downloaded it and use a PDF highlighter to mark whats been printed in the Ultimate collection just to keep a list of what has and hasn't been reprinted

Oooh how had I not found that before; that's glorious.  Shouldn't be too hard to turn that into a form I can read with a script and then I can do a straight compare with a similar list built from the Ultimate Collection and Mega Collection data I have.  It might give me the means to accurately account for the occasional variance in the number of stories per prog which is a bit hit or miss so far.

I write fanfiction (for zarjaz mostly) that is meant to be fan fiction, so I certainly wouldn't take that as an insult. I think there are a number of types of fan fiction: stories that could pass for the real thing, stories that are meant to pass for the real thing but don't, and stories that are not meant to pass for the real thing but instead play with the ideas or concepts in a way the real comic never would.

I tend to over think thigs and apply a level of logic that is perhaps unnecessary so quite a lot of my 'advice' could be fairly nit-picky.
