26 Nov

Brian shows that he is still “The Govenor” in this weeks episode of TWD, the penultimate of the half season, and as you’ll see, there’s going to be lots for the gang at the prison to worry about when he decides to take his revenge…

Hello there Folks! Yes I’m back after internet connection issues which are kind of sorted…but anyway, I want to draw your attention to this bit of news.

If you are one of those movie goers that enjoyed the last cinematic outing of Judge Dredd (The Urban one, not Stallone) and were a bit miffed that the news was there would be no sequel, then this might be of interest to you.

Over on the 2000AD website, they are running an online petition to garner support for a sequel to be made. I for one have added my vote, and hope that you will too.

Not sure how many names they need, but I assume as many as possible, so get over there and cast your vote (come on, please! I just want to see if were ever going to get one with Judge Death in it!)

Ooooow, you cheeky Starblazer you!

I recently managed to get hold of a bundle of vintage “Starblazer” comics to help inspire me with a bit of retro sci-fi for my projects. I did bag them at a pretty good price, considering that I see them about individually for up to £3 a piece, 15 for just over a fiver is a steal! I thought they were in decent condition, until I took a look through PLANET OF FEAR

Typical 80’s schoolboy humour!

As you can see on page 33 of the issue, someone back in the day has drawn on a huge set of cock and balls on one of the main characters in the story! Not only that, there’s a speech bubble with the phrase “Suck it Creep!” too, no doubt pertaining to his endowment!

Over on the previous page, there’s also a bit more defacement in the book, again with the usual cock and balls (Always it seems with the cock and balls!)

I think a lot of comic collectors would be aghast, but not me. This kind of antic just went on more to remind me of the 80’s, when I was actually reading Starblazer, 2000AD and Spiderman etc! We used to do exactly the same as this, defacing everything from comics, to library and text books! All in the vain attempt to make each other snigger and laugh at school!

I’m pretty sure there will be no value to this copy anymore, but that’s fine, it gave me a good laugh when I read it, as well as a great nostalgia buzz!

Peace out…..

Get ready for Free Comic Book Day: May 4th 2013

25 Apr

If your a fan of comics, you might want to know that Free comic book day is on the 4th May 2013. It’s a regular drive to promote reading for kids to encourage them to read more. Comics are a great medium, and are a bit less daunting than a full book that maybe could put off a lot of kids, so on free comic book day they’re giving away lots to everyone through participating stores worldwide!

There are lots of retailers getting involved, as are there a whole heap of lovely free comics of all types. I myself will be taking my kids along to a store or two, in an attempt to get my spawn (They’re lovely really!!) to do a tad more reading than spend all their spare time playing on the PC or consoles.

Make a note of the date (Star wars day, May the 4th be with you!!) and check out the main site for details of the nearest places taking part, as well as check out some of the titles that will be available to pick up free on the day!!
