I figured the British comics legend JUDGE DREDD (and 2000AD) should have a thread to call their own.

As a kid I had the odd issue of 2000AD, and I collected 'Judge Dredd- Lawman of the Future' (which was a tie-in to that bloody Stallone flick) but have really gotten into Judge Dredd in a big way recently. The local library has loads of those new Judge Dredd 'Complete Case Files', big collected volumes of all the Dredd strips, so far I've read about 6 of them, that's a good 10 years worth of classic Dredd strips in a month. Also read 'Judge Dredd- The Complete PJ Maybe' and 'Emerald Isle' which I got in the Forbidden Planet sale for 99p.

I'm also building Dredd's helmet and Lawgiver MK1, with the intention of eventually doing a full costume (inb4 20 years for Jimping)

Any other 'Squaxx Dek Thargo' on here?

Such a good series.

I've a great fondness for British comics and the talent and styles involved. It's always nice to see people still reading and celebrating Dredd, Dan Dare and all the others I remember from years go.

Has anyone else seen this?
The story is nothing special so far, but the art is pretty good, Jacen Burrows who did Bad World and Transmetropolitan, so lots of gore with small amusing details to notice.

The main thing I like about it is the baddies are all "crossed"; (it's a zombie apocalypse with intelligent rage zombies) but the markings on their faces make them look like england football fans.
I get the feeling the inspiration for this one was Ennis and Burrows going to an away match.

Does anyone know any way to get hold of Requiem in English? I've read two completely seperate books of it published in Heavy Metal, but that's it, as far as I'm aware it's not possible to buy a trade paperback in English.

Jesus... I mean it's written by Patt Mills so it's not like there wouldn't be a readership waiting for it. I honestly considered learning French just to read it, and no one should have to do a thing like that.

Anyway... if you ever get the chance, check it out, it's about nazi vampires from hell.

Heavy Metal - March 2010.jpg
Coincidentally it has just been published in the current March 2010 issue of Heavy Metal (http://www.heavymetal.com/shm/product_info.php?products_id=5432) . Doesn't look like anyone has scanned it yet, but anyway Heavy Metal is well worth supporting if you can get a copy.

I dunno.. it's less about the plot for me and more about a couple of nicely designed characters in an interesting world, plus amazing artwork. I read a load of them in one day and finished #8 still wanting more. This may or may not have to do with the fact that #8 finishes with our hero having sex with a demon baboon.

I used to read Viz all the time, recently I picked up a copy again and had a quick flick through.

Now... I thought I'd only stopped reading Viz for a short time, it's only just now that I've realised I had given up reading Viz for about seven fucking years, and when I started reading it again it was exactly the same, nothing had changed.

2712 Webcomic search :/
I'm looking for a webcomic; I can remember relatively little of it, except for these things:

It was quite bland, most characters having one or two colours, with backgrounds being of a certain colour for each character, and quite realistic art style. Characters included Satan, this druggie, and a cowboy.
They were pretty much all 3 panel strips usually featuring just one character talking.
A couple of strips I can remember include Satan describing Hell, and the druggie guy seeing spiders falling everywhere.

I think it may be defunct now, which is probably why I lost track of it.

Anyone know?

This is from a small fan comic, according to Forbidden Planet, it might be being reprinted in a new issue of Dodgem Logic.

Here's the guy's webpage: http://ryusukeworks.blogspot.com/

looking back, I really should have started a thread telling everyone how good Dodgem Logic is.

Dodgem Logic does indeed look good. I admire Moore's faith in the British appetite for more comics magazines. In fact the first issue was mostly articles rather than comics. I suppose it's more of an "underground zine" than a comics magazine. The hippy zine "Oz" (which Moore refers to in an article in Dodgem Logic) used to run quite a few comic strips and strange arty things in the 60s/70s. I look forward to reading the next issues.

New 8 issue series from Grant Morrison about a kid walking around his house and hallucinating. The first issue seems to be just setting the scene, but it's certainly intriguing. "Home Alone meets Lord of the Rings" apparently. http://au.comics.ign.com/articles/106/1062342p1.html http://www.dccomics.com/vertigo/comics/?cm=14143
The way that there are all these potentially significant objects lying around as the kid walks through the house reminds me a bit of one of those "escape the room" games like Crimson Room http://www.fasco-csc.com/works/crimson/crimson_e.php .
Issue #2 is out next week.

This forum has been a bit quiet for a while, so I thought I'd start a thread about the last comic I read. I picked this up in the 90% off sale Borders were having when they closed.

I never read any of Adrian Tomine's stuff before, but I was pleasantly surprised. It's not ground-breaking, and it does seem to be the same introspective fair you'd pick up at any small-press comics convention; but the way it's paced is really interesting, scenes change with no warning, but it never gets confusing.
I also picked up Summer Blonde by the guy in the same sale, I'll let you know if it's any good.

They've got more stuff about it, as well as excerpts on the website: http://www.drawnandquarterly.com/shortcomings/

Here's a Panel Borders interview with Tomine: http://panelborders.wordpress.com/2009/02/12/panel-borders-the-work-of-adrian-tomine/

I find it quite difficult to get into these straight slice-of-life type comics. Especially Tomine's, which seem so lifeless and emotionally detached.

Yeah, I enjoy quite a few of them, but I can imagine they're quite difficult to get into.

I managed to pick up an American Splendor book in Forbidden Planet for only £2, it was quite fantastic.

Well Ross has got 220 on the first page and 240 on the second. It's similar numbers on the third and fourth so it just feels like a slow beginning.

Perhaps Ross' sense of pace is overly influenced by Steve Ditko's text-heavy pages. The difference of course is that Ditko is an evil genius - and even given that I still find some of his speech bubbles mini essays hard going.

A quick look at google said that Alan Moore tries to keep under 210 per page, with a maximum of 35 per word balloon.


I haven't read through the whole thing yet, so he might turn around at the end of the interview and say that's a whole bunch of cock.

I think Alan Moore should get little kids to sit on his knee, and give them presents at the winter solstice.
