Are some of the creator droids going to be having separate tables to the official signing ones? For example- Has John Wagner booked a table for himself so he can sell Rok of the Reds, or will we all have to queue up in the bar for copies?

We'll be releasing the floor plan nearer the time so you'll be able to see who's taken up a table and who hasn't.

Film Discussion / Re: Dredd (2012)
« on: 18 January, 2017, 09:11:26 pm »

Not quite - when I interviewed him for the Megazine, Alex told me that if you were looking for funding in the post-Avatar world if your film wasn't going to be in 3D then the funders didn't want to know. So it had to be 3D to get made, which swallowed up a massive part of the budget.

Rather than it being an issue of 3D in and of itself, I believe they got extra money to spend on post-production for added FX on the presentation of the slo-mo scenes - exploding jaws/shot manipulation/image enhancement etc. - and that it was a choice between beefing up the slo-mo scenes or spending it on vehicle replacement/augmentation.

Aaaaah, gotcha.

I could well be misremembering/misquoting here (and I'm pretty sure he wasn't speaking 100% literally in any case) but I seem to recall that Alex Garland said regarding allocation of budget that they had to choose between shooting 3d or spending the equivalent budget on having fancy sci fi looking vehicles, and they chose 3d.

Not quite - when I interviewed him for the Megazine, Alex told me that if you were looking for funding in the post-Avatar world if your film wasn't going to be in 3D then the funders didn't want to know. So it had to be 3D to get made, which swallowed up a massive part of the budget.

« on: 18 January, 2017, 07:01:23 pm »
For four decades, 2000 AD has been bringing you the galaxy's greatest stories from the world's best creators - its mix of action, humour, satire, and in-your-face storytelling has made it the award-winning, critically-acclaimed, globally-influencing comic it is today.

But what goes into creating your weekly Thrills? How do artists go from script to finished page?

In the first of a brand new vid series, we meet the artists behind 2000 AD and get to watch them in action as they craft brand new Thrills for the Galaxy's Greatest Comic!

Discover the process behind some of the best art in comics with FROM THE DRAWING BOARD!

In this episode, artist Leigh Gallagher takes us through his creation of the cover to 2000 AD Prog 2015 - out on 25th February - for his series with Ian Edginton, Kingmaker!

I'm getting stuck into Terminal World By Alastair Reynolds - so far, so good!  Anyone able to recommend anything more along these lines?

Revelation Space
is a corker (kind of half way between the fetishistic science of Baxter and the emotional coolness of Iain M Banks) and the series, despite being diminishing returns, rarely dipped below "good".

Books of Invasions Vol 1 was definitely released in paperback - it's the version I have. But I'm pretty sure Vols 2, 3 and beyond are only in hardback.
Huh—I didn't realise there was a PB release of that one. Still, the 2000 AD shop only listed the hardback last time I checked (at the standard page count).

The paperback volume was a release for the US market.

Fello digital subs, is it just me or are the 2017 prog still materialising weekly in the 2016 folder?

Fear not, the droids are working to correct this problem!

In Mega-City Zero writers Ulises Farinas and Erick Freitas took Judge Dredd from the streets of Mega-City One and into a bizarre inverted world where neither the city nor even the concept of law exist - how did the lawman survive in a world turned upside?

We talk to the writing duo about their vision of Judge Dredd and his world for IDW, pushing characters to the extreme and upsetting expectations, American attitudes to Dredd, their plans for the future, and writing Dredd against a background of controversy over police tactics in the US.

There’s a brand-new case for Judge Dredd courtesy of John Wagner and Steve Dillon
Wow!

FP's listing is out of date - Steve sadly passed away before he could start work on the strip. I believe it's now being drawn by Carl Critchlow.
