Stegosaurus of Style?

When you described Ace Trucking Co as something that was previously funny but had got itself into a hole and kept digging, I think the technical term for that is "Doing a Linehan"

At the end of the most recent episode we talk for a moment about what we'd call the show if we start talking about Starlord, now that we've getting to the end of Action. Starlord is a tough one, because a lot of these other titles work on with an RE in front of the title (ReAction, for  instance) but ReStarlord isn't as good!


Makes sense - if I listen to podcasts in my lunch hour I often miss the last few minutes :-)

I know I don't post much on here outside of catching up...

Thanks Conrad - I did not expect to hear Fox turn up - what a treat!

Glad to see I haven't worn people out quite yet  :D

Star Lord Trek.

I love this.

Re:Merge.

"Starlord ReLorded"

Conrad, we need to get some of these folks on the show....I have significantly less wit  :lol:

geez we are coming closer to the first 2000ad issue i ever owned (534) not when i became a regular reader tho that was in a certain forthcoming dredd annual in about 3 years later

One of the things that keeps me going is comments like this. I love that, once we get somewhere special to anyone, it's meaningful.

Please explain. Or maybe Conrad will. He does his homework.

This is truly a cover that made an impact on me and shows a change (again for myself) about the comic's maturation. It just keeps growing and bringing in new talent while being so evocative. McCarthy did a lot of work with Sooner and Later and it defines it more so (for me) than the writing. This kind of work exemplifies someone's craft.

I think he's referring to something quite British (& Irish) that probably hasn't flagged up too strongly in the US.  Graham Linehan was a much-loved comedy writer who has, in recent years, seemingly become obsessed with anti-transgender activism through the medium of his Twitter account*, to the extent that the police had occasion to have a little word in his shell-like.

Anyway: it's rather small beer compared to things in the US - where the President and Vice-President (rather than a relatively well known comedy writer) are in cahoots to try to stop their embassies from flying the rainbow flag (and other things that would stop gay people from being ... allowed ... to be).  Still, the embassies tend to respond well to such demands, so there's hope yet:



*Brave and foolhardy be the Interweb surfer who spends too long trying to unravel that palaver.

You, me, and a pint would get on real well  :lol:

Got as far as Kano as Alex Jones and was guffawing so hard I thought I might get thrown off the bus - genius!

Just joined you via a few of your collections.  Awesome stuff.  Trying to avoid spoilers for stuff coming up in the current Ultimate Collection as this is my first read of loads of this stuff.  Figured it was safer sticking to the collections as I could pick ones I've either read or which aren't going to be included.  Your enthusiasm for Shako makes me wish he was being included now :( Maybe I'll have to grab the trade at some point.

In our thrilling hundred and sixtieth episode Fox and Conrad continue their journey through the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic with Progs 507-510 of 2000AD, covering January and February 1987 . This time Ulysses Sweet is on the case, Danny Franks gets a new hat, the taxidermist is on the job, a king is slain, and the President Reagan is missing!

Note: Conrad identifies the artist for the cover of Prog 509 as Carlos Ezquerra, but it’s actually Robin Smith. Don’t believe Conrad’s lies!

Nice, welcome aboard! I always want to do more collections but my laziness gets in the way far too often :(

Unless I missed it, you don't mention that Paxo is a brand of stuffing mix, so I guess it was a cultural reference for British audiences?

I really enjoyed Conrad's amazing Godfather impersonation.  It caused a sudden tea::cereal interface.

HP Sauce!

Sadly long since gone from Aston - my uncle used to work there!
