Well I like it.

It's a different format each week, rather than the loosely connected sketches of the League of Gentlemen.

Cheers

Even if they attain their main goal, they'll still have to move.

More fool them.

I like the idea of a studio geared towards the lower budget film-makers - an interior backlot of sorts with props, corridors, sets that could be rearranged.

Just amazed people are still putting money in after he's burned through all this with not much on film to show for it.

Not sure about Red, but Mark Harrison used actors as ref a fair bit back then.

Isn't Peter Cushing one of the characters in the Durham Red series?

Also Glimmer Rats has Bruce Willis and Jean Reno from what I remember.

Yeah - if  it grows the readership base then that's a good thing.

I suppose the discussion to have is about the medium. We want good 2000ad stories featuring our favourite characters written by our favourite writers but, the way the world is heading, will comics drawn by your favourite artist be a thing in twenty years?

Are we heading to a world of vidslugs? Where comics - even digital - is a thing of the past? Is 2000ad Blockbuster video in a world of Netflix?

I've no idea - it's possible.

Books have survived all sorts of media competing for time and money, so who knows.

Can't imagine that will succeed - one thing to be able to get money from people wanting a film all around the world.

Something else to raise it from people who want to make use of the facilities and are local enough to do so.

I'm all for films, tvs, games etc.

It's something I'd like to see on screen, it doesn't take away anything from the comic.

This passed me by, small budget short but feels a bit Rogue Trooper.

Duncan has been tweeting again about 2000AD films.

Made me track down his Carling Commerical which has a bit of a resemblance to Greasy Gracies from Robusters.

Now available in the webshop for those who couldn't make the 40th.

Thanks for the heads-up, Steve.

Was this announced anywhere?  Do they still use their mailing list?

On Twitter and their fb page. I'm not sure about their mailing list, since I chat with Dan regularly I'm not on it.

I remember seeing his Frankenstein pages for the first time and being blown away.

I wore my Dredd one and immediately lost it, so I can re-complete the set!

(BTW there appear to be seven badges in that set of six!  ;))

Yeah, I can't count...

The BBC's political editor was caught editing footage to suit her narrative - the BBC declared through its own internal review body that there was "no intent to deceive".  The same political editor describes the Crown Prosecution Service's two-dozen separate investigations into Conservative election fraud in the 2015 General Election as "mistakes", despite whistleblowers coming forward and saying it was not only deliberate, but organised - on the national scale - by party HQ.

There is no fake news, only approved news.

What's amazing is that after the whole thing with the Queen being edited to look like she stormed out, I had to complete an online compliance test, because as a freelancer I was producing the titles for a light entertainment panel show.

But this description of the expenses fraud is fine, apparently.
