Is 2000ad worth reading anymore? After seeing the Dredd trailer I had a pleasant moment of nostalgia for back in the day when I used to get it all the time and it was brilliant and weird, but like all things I suspect it may have gone to pot. Anyone on here read it? And what's the Megazine like?

I can't wait to get the film on blu-ray, if only because I missed so much of the film due to having a headache from the 3D glasses. I did see a few bits and pieces of stuff from the comics though with Chopper graffitti and I'm sure one of the mega blocks was called the Owen Krysler building.

The slow mo scenes were well done as well, because they made sense to the story, though I did realise that the drug is basically Cake from Brasseye, which just made me chuckel to myself.

Saw this a while ago and forgot to add my two cents. I'm not as keen as many people are. Dredd was great and so was Anderson, and the block. The city was not so great. It's too post apocalypse present day (perps driving a regular old van etc, not enough high rise). As a result Dredd seems more Mad-max frontier soldier than agent of a police state. However, I'm hoping this movie is set early on in the Dredd timelines and that the city will develop more before the next story.

My real issue is with Justice dept. Dredd gets a cry for help out and two lame judges turn up and knock on the door. The REAL Justice dept would have been round like a ton of bricks in no time and that block would have been taken down. Again, perhaps their grip on the city will develop over time and we'll get to see PSU monitoring the minutae of every citizen's life and a truly powerful police state crushing any challenge to it's supremacy mercilessly.

I heard a rumour that the next film will be based around the pro democracy movement, basically a re-hash of the story 'America'. That would require a Justice Dept much more in control than the one presented here.

>>3487 Forgot to add, if this is truly set early on and we are watching a young Dredd, him cogitating and then eventually passing Anderson for full eagle would not have happened. He would have already known what he was going to do, being the decisive, intractable robot that he was. He would have failed her, because she did break the rules (and then someone higher in Justice Dept would have stepped in to overrule him).

Also forgot to add that the absence of Psi Div could also point to a very early starting point for the story.

It's set very early on, before the comics even started, only like 20 years or so after the war. Dredd's in his 70's in the current comics and presumably in the film he's in his 30's or so.

But yeah, too much post-apocolyptic misery & not enough Mega-city madness & future-shock. That's one of the things the the Stallone version at least got right.

I think a sequel's out of the question though, it's completely bombed at the box office.

I can understand that yellow is associated with cowardice but I don't see the logic of him being without fear meaning his magical powers are ineffective against the colour yellow. In what sense are they ineffective, anyway? Okay, so he can't make a giant fist that can punch someone painted yellow, but what's to stop the giant fist picking up a car and hitting him with that?

Someone is suggesting over my shoulder that it's a sort of analogy about how heroism doesn't work in the face of cowardice but I can't really get that to coalesce into logic in my head.

These lists are handy for me as I am not clued up on Japanese exported culture but I have enjoyed some of what I've seen in anime or manga. I don't know anyone personally that could advise me on it and my work colleagues would probably think this topic on a par with claiming I'd been abducted by aliens, they'd be so out of touch with it.

I know everyone's opnions are differnt, but I'm usually willing to persevere with an episode or two of a series or a good chunk of a film before making any judgements if someone puts it forward as a firm favourite.

Fucking Shit Buckets a new 1,000,000 word opus by Alan Moore all based on the area covered by a public toilet in Northampton. Spanning the time from when it were but a hole in the ground through to the 'fucking shit buckets' of the title. It promises to be a masterwork of poetic allegory and occultist musing on mans ability to work, love drink and defecate all within the same few square meters of squalid earth. Expected to be finished by the time it starts getting a bit nippy in hades.

Coincidentally or maybe synchronistically depending on your chosen reality schema I just finished Voice of the Fire a couple of hours ago. Must say I thoroughly enjoyed it, even the first chapter with the mentally deficient stone age lad blabbering on in decidedly odd syntax.
Wondered if any of you lads have read it and what you think?

Definitely left me wanting to devour some more Moore, got the first few issues of Promethea on my HD so might have a crack at that. Also looking forward to Jerusalem whenever that gets finished. Will download those albums as well OP, cheers for them.

Also could we maybe turn this into a bit of an Alan Moore general thread? /com/ really doesn't get as much traffic as it deserves.

Shit just realized those first two are megaupload links, don't suppose any kind ladm8 fancies sticking them up somewhere else if you have them?

Promethea is amazing for a huge number of reasons. The only criticism of it I agree with is the overly long explanation of the tarot. That section came across as more of a reference work than anything and just wasn't much fun to read.
Still, if you haven't even started yet you've got a fair while before you run in to that.

I can re-up the whole discography in one go if you can give me somewhere other than mediafire to host it, they don't like copyrighted files much. I'll give VotF a read when I get home too.

Ah cool, will try and make a start on it later.
As for VotF I'd just say to persevere through the first chapter, seen a lot of people say they didn't enjoy it but I quite like weird phonetic or generally messed up writing that you have to decode a bit. I also enjoyed the phonetic stuff in Bank's Feersum Endjinn and Will Self's Book of Dave, I find it fun having to kind of figure it out.
But yeah, it can be a little bit hard going but I really enjoyed it and the story in that chapter is brilliant. The rest is just typical Moore awesomeness.

As for somewhere to upload the discog I'm not actually to sure to be honest, after megaupload got clobbered it seems like most other of those sites have got the heebie jeebies up them, which I guess was the desired outcome for US law enforcement.
Will have a poke about later and see if I can find something suitable, unless any other ladm8s have any bright ideas and fancy chipping in?

I think they're supposed to provide fucked up titillation (not necessarily sexual, more "what the fuck am I reading"), and they manage that quite well I think. An offshoot of the freak 70's comic thing.

I enjoyed them. Rarely aroused, though.

But can we get a discussion on the genius that is Tetsuya Saruwatari? A man whose comics should be popular, but aren't due to obscurity, they seem to be the only comics aimed at men (inb4 "I read/watch manly manga/anime for manly men such as myself", I hate that) in Japan that don't pander to paedophilic obsessions. They're dumb at times, but they're intensely entertaining and have some delicately detailed artwork.

Saruwatari is most famous for his manga Riki-Oh (he illustrated it, I have a hunch the guy who wrote it was only an alias) being adapted into the crazy Hong Kong live-action movie Story of Ricky, and Internet talk mentions how his manga Dog Soldier features Ronald Reagan being punched along withh heavyset middle eastern terrorists being fought along with psychic Russians.

The thing is, this one is totally serious and is more or less an odd look at things that were the present at the time of its publication - apparently later on it leads up to an anti-AIDS vaccine, because AIDS will be the deadliest thing on Earth by 1989, go figure. It's not "LOL WACKY" like that Taliban thing on this page, just imagine an 80s action film, filtered by Japan, and done in print form.

Saruwatari's other stuff is a bit different, his recent comics have less to do with OTT spectacle and are more hard-assed mafia stories with one comic being about cagefighting.

Riki-oh was written by Buronson.

And you're only half a man if you talk about "Comcis for Men" without even thinking about mentioning Jiro Taniguchi. Those are manly comics dealing with men and their stories rather than just being trashy and entertaining action comics.

Tough, god be my wittness, I love me some Mad Bull 34 and I'Ve read all of Riki-Oh, even though it's really terrible once the prison-arc is over.

I bonked a chick with a shaved head at a german music festival. When I awoke in the tent in the morning, for a horrible moment I thought I'd pulled a bald man. Also she got me to massage suntan lotion lotion onto her shiny head after she woke up, and she had a really shitty antifa tat of a swastika in a circle with a line through it. Unfortunately, from a distance and when it started getting dark it just looked like she had a nazi tattoo.
The entire thing was bloody weird.

Quite a gutsy move by DC to say the least, but if what I've read since it took place is anything to go by, they should attract new readers.
