2000AD Prog 2061 Review 2

The good bumper old end of year Prog is finally here so I thought I’d review it. To give an indication of how I feel about each strip, I thought I’d compare them to a Christmas song. Onward Dasher! Cover: As Rich said previously, it’s very much like an old annual cover, aging it would have…

Xmas comes early with 2000AD prog 2061….kinda

Great cover by Staz Johnson giving us a classic looking 2000AD annual group shot overseen by old avocado bollocks himself. Bit of photoshop ageing on this and it could easily pass as the cover of a 1982 hardback from back in the days when giving a kid a book for xmas wasn’t seen as taking…

Friday Faves – Sarah Millman

Hello. My name is Sarah, and I hate designing covers. There. I said it. For me, they’re probably the hardest part of making a comic. How do you sum up your entire story – something you’ve poured your heart and soul into – in one image? It has to be something that pleases current readers…

The Friday Faves – Conor Boyle – v1.5!

“Pick two”, they said, “it’ll be easy”, they said. And I fell for it. Anyway, here we are. I started by trying to apply criteria to this (design versus story telling/ traditional versus digital/ simplicity versus chaos etc etc), but the goalposts kept moving so much that I’ve abandoned any sense of them and just…

Review : Silicon Heart

Set in the 2045, Silicon Heart presents a world where synthetic humans exist. Easily identifiable these synthetics, or to give them their in-comic non-pc name Dents, are adopted into human homes and raised as….I don’t want to say “real children” but…yeah, real children.  Despite this there is an expectation that they’ll go on to do…

2000AD Ebooks for 99p!

So I was just browsing the amazon ebook store and saw that the Dredd Year One omnibus,  the Dredd Year Two omnibus and the Judge Anderson Year One omnibus were all 99p each! So I got all three even though I already have a hard copy of the Anderson one. And while typing the above…

The Friday Faves – Eamonn Clarke

British cover I just love the Captain Britain run by the two Alans, Moore and Davis, particularly their portrayal of Brian Braddock as well intentioned but not all that bright. He seemed to be a supporting character in the story, always getting caught up in events way above his pay grade as the Jasper’s Warp…

Dredd and Anderson Year One audiobooks now available

I used to listen to loads of audiobooks back when I had an hours drive to and from work each day.  Thankfully don’t have to do that any more but very tempted to give these a go anyway. Available via Amazon or directly from Audible (posted the direct links to Anderson for both but each…
