Champion of far-right Bullshit, Nick Griffin, wants to emigrate to Hungary. "Good riddance!" I hear you cry but I think it's a bit rich of the clown to abuse migrants and then try to become one himself! The double-standard Twat! If any country has a case for 'building a wall it would be Hungary, if only to keep the gobby racist bellend out!

Im not really a fan of American Reaper either,but it was more bland then bad.Thou,Langley's artwork works a lot better for robots then for humans.

Clint's photostrip work definitely suits robots better, but his hand-drawn stuff works all-round for me.

I found it the other way around. The recent runs of 'A.B.C', while detailed and nice to look at, are a bit static. All of the characters look as if they are just there rather than moving or Fighting. American Reaper on the other hand looked like it was moving at a breathless pace.

Khronicals of Khaos is my favourite A.B.C Warriors story. I would also say it's one of the best 2000AD stories ever printed!

I'm a fan of American Reaper. I thought the idea was quite good (identity theft to the next level) and the artwork suited the story - which I said to Clint at the 40th*, **


*I bought an original page of artwork (Deadlock) which he said he changed slightly because he wasn't happy with it. And I got a discount.

**He said he would rather not work in digital format so often but, due to time constraints, it was often necessary.

I liked Dead Meat, nice story and artwork. I also liked Trash - shame it wasn't allowed to develop!

When I first saw Zaucer of Zilk advertised in the Prog I admit to thinking 'what the hell is THIS!' But I gave it a chance and found it to be a very good series.

Another shout out for Big Dave! Hilarious series - see also: Ulysses Sweet.

Finn was another favourite. I much prefer it to Slaine which, despite the outstanding artwork on the modern series, just seems to go on and on with no resolution in sight.

Indigo Prime is stunning. I can't recall a single story that I didn't enjoy.

Bring back Armoured Gideon!

I'm finding it increasingly more hilarious how TV reporter's and Newspapers are trying to combat Fake News when they've been peddling the exact same shit for decades!

HAVN looks interesting but something about it reminds me of an old Dredd story which I'm going to put a spoiler tag on just in case my musings are correct - Crusade!

Great Meg, long may it continue!

Cheers, BCB! Right, here we go...

"Fire's looking good, now where are the Snuttin' sausages? I'm starved!"

"Right then, now those baby's are cooking I'd like to tell you a story! A tale of subterfuge..., sneakery... Bastardy of the highest level! I'm going to tell you about the time I got tricked by a robot."

"Give 'em a turn, make sure they don't burn! Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah, Myself, 'Machine-Killer Dave', 'Phil Dangerous' and 'Sausage John' were sent to Tibet to meet with a Guy who reckoned he had information on some Big Threat that was supposedly heading Earth's way... Yeah, I know how it sounds - A bunch of old Geezer's going to meet some Geezer on a Mountain full of...um, Geezer's! 'Snutting Bullshit' I thought but we couldn't ignore a potential threat to old 'Mother Mud', so off we trotted... Mmmm smell those Badboy's... to meet this Guy..."

"...and he tells us what's what! Big Brain was back... Yeah, I Know... The Big Bad himself. I was less than impressed to say the least and I thought John was going to cry but we held it together for the most part. Anyway, he goes on to tell us about an army of Robot's being amassed off World, and how we've been infiltrated by a new kind of shifty metal bastard - one's that could pass as Human! I remember Phil's words, clear as day...'No Robot could ever get past us, we're the best that Humankind has to offer! Sam alone has killed millions of the Snutter's! Who was that famous dude you killed Sam? The Theme-Park bloke... Walt Hitler was it? He thought he could try it on and got...', and then Phil's head disappeared from his shoulders and ended up mostly on my Hat and Jacket! Turns out the Guy we met was one of the new Robot's and he had lured 'Humankind's Best' into a trap!... How're the Pig's doing? Have we got any ketchup?"

"...and we made it! Now then, do you know what the moral of the story is kids? Tommy? Clarissa? How about you Kabir?... No? Well neither do I but one thing's for certain - I ain't being caught twice by the same Snuttin' trick!"

Sam reached into his Jacket...

Any more for any more?

I thought the deadline was the middle of March? If the comp is running for a couple more days I could probably produce something - closer to the original 'brief' than my last effort.

If not, no worries.

Maybe better off out then.

I doubt it.

My working week was reduced (over a couple of years) from 48 hrs to 44 hrs, for the same pay! This was down to the EU, bringing the UK into line with more enlightened nations who had better working regulations and higher wages.

From the Tory's we're going to get - less money for public services - less protection from unscrupulous employers - and a whole lot of "I'm alright, Jack. Fuck the rest of them!"

Anyone encountered these on sale yet?

Not in the Southwest. Or if they are I haven't seen them.

Have political parties outlived their usefulness?

Possibly, but I'd rather others run the Nation than have to do it myself. My major concern with Politics/Politicians is that nobody's ever accountable for anything!

Illegal Wars are started with false evidence as the cause - nobody cares!

Paedophiles apparently infiltrated Government and TV stations years ago - nobody cares!

I could go on but I'll end up winding myself up!

Anyway, accountability, or lack of, is what concerns me. People can be in charge but they need to take proper responsibility.

Some great stories, though some spuggers  have not followed the brief...

Apologies! I lost two previous drafts through a combination of Weed, liquor and a shit laptop. My third draft (my actual story) is patchy at best and I managed to miss a key section that was present in both previous drafts.

I certainly don't expect to win but I plan on re-writing the story (just for fun) and will post it sometime if anyone would like to read it.
