Just seen online that Terrance Dicks passed away last week.
Very sad news. Terrance probably did more to inspire British kids in the seventies and eighties to read books than any other author.

Re: New look forum

Only just seen the new look! Unfortuately, life has been getting in the way of everything lately, but...it's looking good!

Re: Does your partner have any interest in your comics?

My wife is a huge comics fan. Mostly American (in fact, mostly DC Comics) but she is also possibly the world's biggest 2000 AD fan. Her mental storehouse of 2000 AD trivia puts mine to shame.

Re: Titan cancels DC line

Since that line seemed to be Titan's bread and butter, I can only assume DC pulled the licence. But why? Did they want too much money for Titan to pay, this time? Are they planning a new reprint line of their own? Or are they just anticipating problems after Brexit? It has to be bad news for Titan, ...

Re: Carlos Ezquerra RIP

The latest Judge Dredd Megazine pays tribute to Carlos, with five pages of his fellow creators sharing their memories of him, plus the free reprint magazine which this month presents a selection of his work including his first ever Dredd strip.

Re: Crikey! is back

As I recall Crikey improved with age but there were some shaky moments at the start (the inadvertent announcement of the death of Terry Bave, the Smash article in issue 3) but it has lots to recommend it and my bookshelves wouldn't be the same without it. Will I buy the reprints? Probably not as I ...

Re: Stan Lee has died.

Sometimes a controversial figure, but always the greatest showman in the world of comics. He'll be missed.

Re: Crikey! is back

What level of research do you expect? Picking one issue at random I'd expect... an article about Tornado not to confuse artists Ian Kennedy and Cam Kennedy. I'd expect the same article not to call Victor Drago "Holmesian" but instead mention that he was originally going to be Sexton Blake. I'd expe...

Re: Crikey! is back

If you are looking for a "Steve Holland type" research and background of titles, yes you may be disappointed. However what you do get is a wonderfully produced magazine with loads of illustrations and some superb interviews from those within the comic industry past and present (one that springs to ...

Re: Crikey! is back

I always found Crikey to be slightly disappointing. I felt the level of research could be a bit lacking. I remember one issue had an article on Captain Hurricane from Valiant that completely failed to mention his trademark "raging fury"! All the articles were written by freelancers, most of them un...

Went into WH Smiths and picked up Striker issue 7 and Rebellion's Sniper Elite issue 3 (featuring the Rat Pack from Battle). And Comic Scene issue 3 arrived in the post!

Re: Striker Returns!

Surprised there's not more coverage of this on the forum. Overall, I like it but I would agree it needs more strip content and less features. It's a little slim story-wise for a £2.70 weekly spend. It seems a lot of readers felt the same, so Pete Nash has acted accordingly. As of issue #6, the stor...
