Well, la-di-bloody-da! Or so I'd initially assume...

I'm trying to read these bloody threads, but they all end in the fuckin' Watcher!

Man, he really must love the sight of his own type (Ed: I do, yes), huh?

If only the more interesting posters were more proliferating... This world, as we deem to call it, would be a much more happy experience!

(Ed: It probably wouldn't, but let's try it anyway).

This, it looks great and features a lot of interviews and interesting articles. I had forgotten all about the Strangerers

There are links to a couple of sample chapters at the bottom of that page.

It turned up today and at 200 pages it's twice the size of a DWM. They look amazing, feel fantastic and smell... erm... incredible? Obviously, I haven't had a chance to read it yet and wanted to say how nice everything was but...

they are just beautiful.

I am ensorcelled. Well done to everyone involved. I am looking forward to the Alan Moore interview the most but there is an article by Tat wood that I have my eye on as well and the Clayton Hickman interview should be good value... phwoar!

Currently working my way through the 2000AD Black Star novella range(so no pictures, just text) all of which have been pretty good so far and currently halfway through "Durham Red: The Unquiet Grave" which so far reminds me of a satanic version of Barbarella meets Lexx. [joke]My favourite Doctor Who script editor[/joke] Andrew Cartmel has written a few of these, so I'll be curious to read them once I work my way through the series. Apparently his Dredd one is really awful, so I'm intrigued to find out how and why.

I'm also working my way through the 2000AD Ultimate Collection partworks and currently on "Slaine:Book Of Scars", the artwork is absolutely incredible but I'm only a third of the way through so far so can't really make any objective judgement on the story content just yet.

Absom Daak: Dalek Hunter. So far, not too bad.

I liked Abslom Daak, but it pissed me off how he spent a whole shed load of time assembling this dynamic crew just for them to be killed off at at drop of a hat immediately afterwards. It left the reader thinking, "Well, what was the fucking point of all of that?"

I did like the amusing way you could almost see Daleks trembling or sweating when confronting Daaks evil leer.

Great Steve Dillon art too.
