    No, quite the opposite actually. It's a great topic. I just didn't like the way the OP was abusing it to make some absolutely God awful name drop.

    I was working- someone rang up to confirm that J-Depp had been confirmed in the area by unrelated witnesses but then later text to say it was actually the pirates of the carribean statue outside of that gadget shop just off market square.

    NEMESIS THE FUCKING WARLOCK. When are they going to do a film of that, eh?

    There was a copy of one of the stories knocking around in my primary school art department. I read and re-read it obsessively, not having the faintest fucking clue what was going on in it.

    It was great but kind of shit after O'neil stopped drawing it.
    Did you know that the first part of the gothic empire (the bit drawn by oneil) was the first Nemesis draw after comic rock before the other 3 previous 'books'

    In case anyone is interested, to celebrate the announcement of the forthcoming new Rogue Trooper Redux game, Rebellion are offering all four volumes of the digital version of the original Rogue Trooper stories for only £4.99 each - that's under twenty quid for nearly 1,500 pages of Gerry Finley-Day, Dave Gibbons, Jesus Redondo, Brett Ewins, Cam Kennedy, Chris Weston et al.

    They're also offering volume one in paperback for a tenner (this edition often goes for silly money on Amazon).

    Sorry to bump; I didn't realise Brett Ewins had passed over 2 years ago. Another one of my favorite artists on the comic. Was a regular at Hanwell's Viaduct, a decent Fullers pub.

    What a shame, I liked his Dredd work and 'Bad Company' was very dark but one of my favourites as a kid.

    The latter was one of the greatest stories in that comic. The former rings a bell... was it like Tyranny Rex?

    Two episode story that I think was intended to become a series. Maze was a hard arse spy with skills. Also drawn by Ian Gibson. It was like a sex reversed James bond in space. I left 2000ad waaay before tyranny rex.

    That's what the colleague I had a crush on looked like (really).

    They should also make a Rogue Trooper movie - and that Mean Arena thing would also make a good flick.

    I recently started up a subscription to 2000AD again. Download it onto my tablet every week. It's decent.

    At the moment it's Bad Company, ABC Warriors, Dredd, Savage and something Sun. :)

    I'm sure somebody'll be along soon to fight Cthulhu.

    Without googling, I'm guessing it's Milligan writing BC, Mills for ABC and Wagner for JD and I have no idea what Savage is... who's taken over from Brett Ewins on BC art duty?

    You're right except for Dredd. That's written by somebody called Michael Carroll.

    And the artist for BC is "Rufus Dayglo"

    Pat Mills is also doing Savage atm which is a continuation of Invasion in Volgan-occupied Berlin. Proper old fashioned b&w art, not bad.

    I liked the summary. He's a lorry driver who stopped the volgan invasion and is then sent to Berlin as a spy. Unfortunately he can't stop himself going on multiple killing sprees so his cover is blown.

    :D

    I quite like the idea that Savage is now a principled estate agent, preventing the Volgans from bulk buying, high rise properties in desirable areas.

    For some reason it's been on my mind lately. I've been re buying old progs, bought a couple of books on its history, and just watched the documentary.
    Not sure how I feel about a rogue trooper film. It would need a complete reworking to take it away from an episodic 80s comic series.

    It's Duncan Jones, so I'll watch it for that. Still not sold on RT as a cinematic character, when there is such a treasure trove of tales to be told.
