The latest 2000 AD Thrill-Cast is now up on iTunes and Soundcloud, with the first part of a special in-depth interview with writer Emma Beeby!

I'm really enjoying this podcast. Molch-R's an engaging and knowledgeable host. His saucy Sid James laugh is awesome - gets me thinking his interviewees are making dirty jokes if I zone out a bit while listening. It was great to hear Simon Davis and Pat Mills this week. A past highlight for me was Carlos Ezquerra with his bluntness and honesty. Great stuff. I hope this becomes a well-established fixture.

Thanks for the kind words - really glad you're enjoying it :)

I'd like to take a little straw poll: if you're signed up to the Thrill-Mail are you receiving it every Wednesday? If not, let me know. Thanks! :)

Loved every second of it, can't wait to see it again. Probably better than the first movie, if a lot fuller.

The day of the FCBD signing! Was this planned?  ;)

Apparently not, just a nice bit of serendipity.

Why tag...*that* name after the first post?

If anyone's going to read the responses beyond it they're going to have un-spoilerised the OP, otherwise the whole conversation won't make sense!

Most people, including myself, view this board using the 'latest posts' link at the bottom of the board - meaning spoilers appear whether we want them or not.

Molch-R's imposed spoiler tags have me worried!

I added the tags as, ideally, speculation about a story, particularly one where most people haven't got their Progs yet, should be conducted under spoiler tags.

Popped some spoiler tags on that for you...

It's a sad state of affairs when the mod is happier pulling people up on their tone rather than spending time addressing the points that they raise. The last few Megs have been poor and I won't apologise for my comments - would you prefer that I make some sort of sanitised reference to the JD Megson block instead in order to get the message across because a bunch of grown-ups are too precious to take it on the chin when it really matters?

Bottom line is that the readers pay the wages of the staff and creators - ignore us at your peril and a quick scan of the comments from some of us over the last few editions easily proves that I'm not the only one who thinks that things are on the slide. Amongst others, I believe that the editor made a gross mistake by making a decision to reprint (a very poor quality scan of) Holocaust 12 and I simply won't believe this was the best material available to make up the page count at a premium price.

Do please let me know if you're now too 'niche' to accept my comments however I choose to frame them - I have every copy of the Meg ever published and if you think you are more passionate than I am about it then you'll just have to find a new reader to fill the shoes that I feel like abandoning right now - best of luck with that.

As I said before, I'm not happy.


So I can see. As I've already mentioned, you are free to voice your opinions but personal attacks on 2000 AD staff and creators are beyond the pale on this board. Thank you.

The Meg is currently hurtling towards the floor again folks - I've just paid top dollar for 9 whole pages of poorly reproduced reprint of Holocaust 12 (including a Bishop-esque banner) that doesn't even stand up on it's own in this sort of context. Ed says that he wants to concentrate on the Tooth archive and then fobs us all off onto a 3rd party part-work by publishing a part reprint of a bloody reprint that looks as if it's been through the wash via a dirty protest. On top of that there's a patronising page compelling people to vote in the general election in case they are too stupid to understand what the whole process is about.... wtf is that all about then?

Pull your finger out Mr Smith as I'm not impressed - this is a lazy stunt for £5.70 of anyone's money. Let's get back to basics and remember that a decent Meg is possible within the usual constraints as long as you can find decent writers instead of some of the lazy bollocks that seems to have become entrenched of late. (Hell, if you're stuck for page count then dump the little comic and reintegrate the reprint into the main body again as much of it is shite that you know you can't even sell off to the 3rd party mugs because it's so weak!)

And please, no more fucking Ostriches - shift Mills and Langley over to the weekly as it just doesn't work with one episode every month. I want Dredd, lots of Dredd kicking the shit out of things being the nasty bastard he is - how hard is it to actually do that in the wake of Chaos, Dark Justice, Enceladus etc when you have so much material to work on?

I'm not happy.

Please moderate your tone and language when discussing our staff and creators, thank you. Criticism is more than possible without getting personal.

According to Hachette, these are the main stockists:

Martin McColl Group

Co-Op Group

One Stop Group

Eason & Son Group

WHS Travel


I also believe that Forbidden Planet in London, The Big Bang in Belfast, and OK Comics in Leeds also get copies in.

My mum went to school with the actress who played Dorien in Birds of a Feather. Well, she was in a different year but it was totally the same school.
