The Walking Dead: Season 4: Episode 11; Claimed.

24 Feb

While I get a brief break in my busy schedule, here I am with this weeks dose of zombie survival fun, The Walking Dead. I’ll not tell you anything if you haven’t seen it already, there will be no spoilers from me about this weeks instalment.

I’ll try and get online to get my posts back to normal, but I’m finding that I need most of any spare time I’ve got at the moment to devote to stuff I have on, so it’s still busy, busy, busy…

As usual, I’ll reiterate my warning, before you visit the link above, put on your pop up blocking software/extensions to avoid the myriad of old school pop ups from the site. Enjoy!

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!

9 Jul

DSCF2689

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!!

comics_dark_dredges

So, as ever I have been involved in this years World Book night (April 23rd) and my choice this year as a giver, is a collected 2000AD book about the evil deadworld Judges, Death, Fire, Fear and Mortis. This classic collection is what I remember as a kid, eagerly getting my copy of 2000AD every weekend!

I still have a few copies of this great little collected graphic novel (pocket sized paperback) so, I’m offering them up to you good UK blog readers (UK only I’m afraid due to the costs of the postage system) You’ll need to send me an A5 letterbox sized SAE (stamp addressed envelope) with your details, and I’ll mail one to you!!

So if you want a copy, please send me a message and I’ll put your name down for one and I’ll get back in touch to let you know. If there are many takers, I’ll stick all the names in a hat and let you know if your a winner! I can’t say fairer than that!

Apologies again to my international readers, its just that international postage will be far too high, and is a bit of a faff around! May I suggest you check your area for a world book night event or giver near you, and check out http://www.us.worldbooknight.org/ or that of your specific country to see what events are going on right now!!

I promise you all that I’ll include you in the next comp/sweepstake type affair I’m planning (and trust me, it’s going to be a good one!)
