Books & Comics / Re: Whats everyone reading?

Some of the issue with the change of artists in Marvelman was that the Alan Davis art was all originally printed at the lush A4 (almost) size, so those pages would have had effectively a double reduction to work at US size.

When Chuck Beckum (possible SP) took over he was producing work specifically for the US sizing.

Also- 'any' artist would have had a hard time following on from Alan Davis on this.
Or if you're homosexual in Northern Ireland...

Yeah, I'm not that familiar with the prequels but I do remember something about it. Maybe this comic series (or the Vader one) will show how Vader learns about force ghosts. I suppose if he leans about it (or at least has a strong suspicion) before ESB then the 'Obi Wan has taught you well' line would still make sense.

Particularly loved...

(Fame at last! Art by the awesome Dode C.)

The Journal is easily one of the most consistently original and satisfying publications out there. Looking forward to this one.

Another excellent and striking cover.

I refuse to buy it in hardback unless the other 1976 follow suit.

Bets that there are at least a couple of survivors onboard the Mayflower?

PS gutted to be the escape pod, they're all dead now no?
Megazine / Re: Lack of love for the bundled "floppies"?

I have been reading 2000AD regularly for years, had access to a huge back catalogue of the Megs for a few months, and would always get anything from the House of Tharg when I saw it in the library. Oh and my dad had scattered copies of Eagle, american reprints et al in the loft.

I still haven't read 99% of the strips featured in the floppies. What I'm saying is I'm not a new reader by any definition but they add huge value for me, and were a big part of my decision to start getting the Meg as well as the prog in those early days (Which coincided with their launch as a regular thing).
Film & TV / Re: Walking Dead - coming from TV to comic

I only ever read this in the trade paperbacks and love the story presented in that format.  I get what you mean about the soap opera style even with the trades they leave you hanging and hankering. 

I watched 10 minutes of the show and shit myself scared.. I can handle zombies in a comic but the screen is too close to reality for my over-active imagination.

What I like about the comic is that no-one is safe and you never know what is coming lead characters fall this makes it exciting and leaves me more attached to the remaining.

Anyone spotted this in Edinbra yet?

if anyone's cares or is still looking: FP can't get their heads round supplying this, however the nice chap there suggested RS McColls in Nicholson sq and the nice camp chap in there delivered the goods with a cheery Enjoy! Carrying it around town was a bit like having one of those 'End is Nigh' boards: the odd smirk or a knowing nod from passersby while the rest looked slightly embarrassed on my behalf.

So for our Jock readers RS McColls can supply!
