This is where we say "Hi", then.

Morning folks! I'm Ash. Hi, etc.

D'ya want the long story as to why I'm here? No? Shame 'coz you're gonna get it.  :lol:

About 25-odd years ago, I was given a couple of 2000AD/Dredd books and a few comics. Ploughed through them in no time. Loved the Psi Division stuff in particular. But my Mum (being my Mum ::)) was all "Nah, I'm not sure I want you reading that stuff" and I was never given any more, and being a kid I had a minor strop and then forgot all about it.

Fast forward to last weekend. After a heavy Friday night, I find 'Comic Book Men' online on the Saturday and think "yeah, that looks like nice light entertainment I can cope with in my current state", and binged a load of episodes. During one of them, they're talking about 'best helmets'. (No laughing at the back) and Judge Dredd came up. Assorted bells started ringing so I thought, "I wonder what's going on on that score these days?" so off to the 2000AD shop I trot.

First thing I see is the Prog 2137 cover! Much success, etc. Remembering my fondness for Anderson, I bought Psi Files volume 1, Shamballa, 2137, and the 'Year One' book. Minor fast-forward to today, and I'm totally hooked again. Only now being 38, there's no parental veto.  :lol:





I'm generally more of a lurker than a poster, but thought I'd do the intro out of etiquette.  :wave:

Anyone got a Psi Files 2 they don't want?  :lol:

Thanks! That is a concern, I must admit!

It's all right, that's in every contract.
That's what they call a sanity clause.
You can't fool me, there ain't no sanity clause.

Welcome, welcome! There is SO much good stuff to get through, both classic and new. It’s going to take a while to get through it though! :)

Welcome  :)
Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.
