Everything Comes Back to 2000AD

Flint is joined by Luke Foster to have a look at the latest offerings from team Futurequake : Zarjaz 12 and Dogbreath 24.

As with the regular 2000AD reviews the strips in question are gone into in detail so expect heavy spoilers.

More info on Zarjaz and Dogbreath including details on how you can get copies are here : http://thequaequamblog.blogspot.com/

Please note : These reviews were done with digital copies the gents at Futurequake were good enough to provide. As such some stories were read in a different order to that which was in the printed edition. Not that it really matters, just in case anyone is reading along. That said the one longer Dredd story was broken down into three parts in the print version.

At great expense Iz from the Megacast is flown in to discuss progs 1742-44 with Richard.

Yeah... ok..... technically they live together anyway but she still had to be bribed.

The audio is a bit dodgy and about 40 minutes of recording got lost due to a pc crash so had to be redone so apologies if this one actually manages to make our usual efforts sound vaguely professional. If its any consolation it was a lot of fun to record.

As always the progs are discussed in detail and the language isnt suitable for those easily offended.

With Richard unable to get his arse in gear to record with Flint he's instead pulled in Gavin from the Sidekickcast to see how prog 1740, a "jumping on prog", works for a relative 2000AD newbie.

As well as 1740 they also check out 1741 with a few sidelines into good chat up lines and Vin Diesels sexuality.

As always, spoilers for the progs in question and language not suitable for the easily offended. Actually none of it is probably suitable for the easily offended.

In this one Rich and Flint are joined by Mark : The Legendary Shark from the 2000AD forums to look at progs 1738 & 39. They are also joined by the much missed Zippo lighter for the first 5 minutes (sorry about that).

I think I cut out MOST of the offensive stuff, but sure there's still something in there to get you going. As well as the progs we discuss Mark's recent cameo in 2000AD and the recent announcement that 2000AD is going weekly in the US.

In honour of this being the first time Rich and Flint have recorded together in ages, this is a bit of a greatest hits episode. So in other words Flint calls something "sh*t", Rich is offensive about gypsies, creators have the piss taken out of them, beers are drunk and the plot subtleties of entire issues are avoided in order to concentrate on a single upskirt shot of Judge Anderson.

As always, the progs in question (1736 & 1737) are spoiled and the language is non kiddie friendly from the start.

With Flint still M-I-A and Richard getting sick of the sound of his own voice we've drafted in Iz from the Megacast and Lizzie Boyle aka Lady Festina from the 2000AD boards to look at progs 1734 & 5.

As always the progs in question are discussed without fear of spoilers and the language isn't suitable for the kiddies.

With Flint still AWOL Rich is joined by Kehaar of the Dissecting Worlds podcast to discuss progs 1731-33 and midget boobs.

As always, expect spoilers for the progs in question, non kiddie friendly language and most offensive of all this week, a Scouse accent!!

Megacast Ep 5

Its another interview podcast and this time the Megacast girls are joined by Dredd artist Colin MacNeil to discuss his work and answer questions posed by users of the 2000AD forums and readers of the ECBT2000AD website.

One point of note : At the time of recording Colin was down to attend the Bristol Comic con which is unfortunately no longer the case (which the girls are particularly gutted about).
