Hi there, fellow Earthlets!
« on: 10 March, 2022, 02:45:12 AM »
Like many of you, I have been a fan of 2000 AD since childhood (I started reading in 1985) and have been reading on and off ever since. I live in Japan, so physical copies of the progs is a bit tricky so I'm a digital subscriber these days.

I'm really glad to finally join the community and I look forward to reading all the threads and getting to know you all!

Cheers!

Welcome to the forum
When I die, I want to die like my grandfather who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.

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.

Welcome to the forum

Many thanks!

Yeah, I can already see there's an awesome bunch of peeps on here!

Not so much for 2000 AD, but Judge Dredd is kinda popular among guys who have an eye for western comics :) Needless to say, my fellow ex-pats are aware of 2000 AD, but I'm always keen to extol the virtues of thrill-power to those who are yet to learn about it! (I often tell people that it's my biggest source of national pride - such an incredible anthology that is STILL going and on a WEEKLY basis at that!!)

Hello!
My big brother, who got me into the Prog in the first place, has lived in Japan for nearly 20 years. I don't think he reads the Prog any more but I send him the odd TPB for Xmas, when I am feeling generous with thbe postage fees...

Hi there!

You sound like a zarjaz younger brother! Would love it if my younger brothers sent me some goodies too, but yeah, the shipping ain't cheap!

Welcome and enjoy the banter

Thank you! Gonna go out on a limb here, but I don't suppose you live in Kent? I have a friend with a name that looks quite close to yours!!
