30 Year Flashback: 2000 AD arrives!

For any fans of comics you've probably read something by Lew Stringer even if you didn't realise it.
His wonderful Blog "Blimey! It's Another Blog About Comics!" has a small feature on the Galaxies Greatest Comic reaching its 30th birthday and some pictures of adverts that appeared in other titles in the weeks before 2000 AD first went on sale.
My favourite being the one with the Biotronic stickers from Prog 2.

Judge Dredd Phonecards

Can't believe that's its over 10 years since the Judge Dredd Phonecards by P&J Promotions came out, I remember getting the first set but didn't buy the second.

There's an article about them on a Blog called 'Bear Alley' so click the link to read the feature and see some of the artwork for the cards.
There's also a page of John Wagner's script from the project as well.

No Free Space Spinner

Post 1 and no free gift, just a few words to see if this works and if I can put up a post without screwing it up.

Its April 2007 and I'm considering what to do on those long cold winter months to idle away the time. I suppose I could do something productive, or join a group or expand my limited mental capacity by doing an adult education course but no, none of these noble causes will do instead I'm going to waste my winter months writing my thoughts on the Galaxies Greatest Comic 2000 AD, starting at Prog 1 and working my way through them one Prog at a time.
This mammoth task I do for my own pleasure and if anyone stumbles across it then feel free to scorn upon my weak writing or reviewing abilities.
