Jumping on Prog!!! This review is brought to you in partnership with that great writing lubricant, Navy Strength Cannonball Edinburgh Gin, and the letter “F”. Luke takes a look at the latest attempt at attracting new and lapsed readers. And you know, spoilers. But it has been a week – if you haven’t read it yet, where have you been?
This month will soon be ending and the next about to begin, only this time, it’s called DROKKTOBER!
To show our love for our favourite character and to mark the sad anniversary of the passing of the truly wonderful Carlos Ezquerra we are going to dedicate the whole month to him and of course John Wagner. For between them, they created Judge Dredd and through Joe, we as fans have enjoyed thrill powered tales for over 40 years, with no let up. Plus it has brought such a close knit fandom together, which is something to cherish.
What we would like everyone to do is to look at the list included here and see what they would like to partake in. You can produce art for the specific days, tell tales about the prompts things listed, or enter the two competitions, which both start on the 5th (more of which closer to the date but you can win a few exciting prizes).
For the art, it doesn’t have to be what we expect. You could use items found around the home, beach, etc… You could see a cloud that looks like a character. You get the drift! Imagination is good!
You’ll see it’s not all art, as not everyone is arty. There are days for chats, which hopefully should bring out some interesting tales and reminiscing and feverish debates.
We will be pushing this on the Everything Comes Back to 2000 AD site and also showing many of your art pieces on the Twitter feed. This will help spread the Dredd!
When you do post up your piece of loveliness, all we ask is that you hashtag the wee drokker with #drokktober #judgedredd #dredd You get the gist!
There will be a Progcast from the ECBT nutters that will be all about this and only this put online at the start of next week. If anyone has any questions, I’m sure they will be answered on there!
Remember folks. This is for fun and to try and spread Carlos and John’s creation over the web for the whole month, so…. LET’S DROKK!
Silencing the little voice in his head, Luke ponies up the dough for the latest repackaging of classic Nemesis. Limited edition, not all Squaxx will have got a copy, but what are they missing out on? Luke checks out what he forked out 30 quid for, in this Rioja fuelled overview.
We normally don’t promote Kickstarters here at ECBT…but now and again we make exceptions. This is one and it’s glorious!
Q: What is SPACE BASTARDS? A: It’s everything 2000ad should be.
This is a massive tome of a book. Just over a foot in height! This is the only way to read SPACE BASTARDS and is exactly how the authors intended — presented in a huge over-sized book so you can pour over every detail!
That’s right. And these guys didn’t stop after making one comic. They didn’t stop after making the first hardcover. So far, they have produced a year’s worth of content (over 500 pages) in collaboration with their artistic heroes, namely:
Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan, The Boys, Happy!) Simon Bisley (Lobo, Slaine, Heavy Metal) Boo Cook (Elephantmen, Judge Anderson) Colin MacNeil (America, Judge Dredd) Clint Langley (ABC Warriors, 2000AD, Marvel) Glenn Fabry (Slaine, 2000AD, Marvel)
