Quote from: 13 schoolyards on October 27, 2021, 05:05:12 AMI'm pretty sure I read somewhere that Ennis wrote the script as a kind of showcase comeback for Steve Dillon after Dillon made it past some issues that had derailed his comics career for a while. And then Dillon died, Ennis left it in the drawer for a few years, found it again and thought "well, considering it's already written..."
Quote from: madhair60 on October 27, 2021, 10:37:17 AMHonestly, if you haven't read Ennis' take on Dastardly and Muttley, please read it. I truly think it's one of the best things he's ever done. Quite cheap to pick up the TPB too.

Quote from: Artie Fufkin on November 08, 2021, 04:45:13 PMNope.I caught up on some 2000ad instead.There was a recent (about 2 months ago) jumping on issue, and it's been excellent so far. The return of The Out & Diaboliks. A great Judge Dredd story, and a new (to me?) strip called Scarlet Traces, which had a brilliant opening.
QuoteThe original Scarlet Traces was conceived as a partially animated serial, intended for the now-defunct website Cool Beans World. In an interview for 2000AD Review, Edginton said "The Cool Beans version was to have been like a little movie in many ways. It had music, sound effects, zooms, pans and dissolves. There was even going to be some limited animation of the War Machines. A lot of the work was done and in the can when Cool Beans shut down production..."The website ceased operation after only a fraction of the serial had been published. D'Israeli wrote in his blog:...when Cool Beans folded, we had a comic which was only 75% complete and which was still owned by the defunct publisher... Having retrieved the property, Ian (Edginton) then managed to license our previously-unpublished comic to Rebellion's Judge Dredd Megazine as a reprint — thus giving us the funds to complete the story while retaining ownership.
Quote from: Magnum Valentino on November 09, 2021, 05:35:49 PMNo, Arkham Asylum was originally published at normal size, but you CAN get it in the Absolute line which is a big massive format. Apparently the colouring on that reissue was botched so you're maybe better off with an older print.
Quote from: Ron Maels Moustache on November 10, 2021, 06:43:23 PMStarted off as a webcomic in 2002 before it became a 2000AD property - Revived in 2016 and they've been running new stories sporadically since then.
Quote from: 13 schoolyards on November 11, 2021, 05:03:25 AMI thought it was the other way around - the original scans in the first prints in 1989 or whenever came out too murky so there was a big fuss about getting the original art back for the Absolute edition? TBH from looking at my copy it looks a little clearer but not astoundingly so - the big improvement is with the Joker's lettering, which I found close to unreadable in the original version
Quote from: Small Man Big Horse on November 25, 2021, 09:30:31 AMThe problem I have with Neil Gaiman is that while his writing is often superb, I struggle with his persona and find a lot (not all, but too much) of what he says rather pretentious, and that puts me off re-reading things like Sandman which I loved at the time.
