2000 FP (part II)

Just a quick note to record how much I enjoyed the 2000AD mass signing at Forbidden Planet today. It was really great fun, and fantastic to mingle and chat (and also very nice to see people I hadn’t seen in ages). Many thanks to everyone who supported the event, especially John for the company, Cassanda for saying hello (say hi to your mum and dad), and Dukeleto (sorry I kept you waiting to get your books signed). It was all a great deal of fun, and it’s not every day you get to be in the same room as two Thargs. After much consideration, we all agreed that the two Thargs should not be allowed to touch or physically interact incase they reacted like matter and anti-matter, and levelled Shaftesbury Avenue, or possibly merged in some cosmic fashion to create an anti-Tharg. Yes, us 2000AD script droids really do have conversations like that, sometimes.

Sounds like a pretty average conversation to me.

Or is it just me?

I suspect the latter.

Zing! (place holder for email notification)

What's a "Tharg"? ;)

Joe said...

Oh no, I didn't know! Curses! Foiled again by the vagaries of shift-work!

Pack Master - A Tharg is a kind of cake, it's a fondant bap with a meringue centre. They can give you indigestion. And blow up the galaxy.

....Blow up a galaxy?


That sounds like MY type of cake!

Any news on your Scotland adventure mr Abnett?

Danacea said...

Thanks for being there, Dan - very good to have you with us and glad you enjoyed it!

Dukeleto said...

No worries Dan, was worth waiting, and I was enjoying the eavesdropping. Particularly the idea of Dredd not shooting anyone, ROFL what nonsense!

Sredni, sadly I am NOT that Dukeleto (there's another?!) I only illustrate this: http://dukeleto.deviantart.com/

I had a great time Dan, I always find it fascinating to hear how creative people come up with their ideas and get them onto the page and you and Jim didn't dissapoint.
Thanks again, John

Dukeleto: must be I guess. although I notice there is a rather nifty piece of BFG-inspired art at the top of your page, anyways. so that's good enough.
