Weekly Round-Up

When I first started Mid-Life Gamer Geek back in the now utopian beforetimes of *checks notes* 2019, my intention was to continue writing about gaming; video games, board games and […]

Comic Book Review: Battle Special (2020)

The Battle special – or, as it seems to be called on the cover, the Battle ‘of Britain’ Special – is the latest in Rebellion’s series of specials to revive classic British comics. Battle Picture Weekly went through a number of name changes in its original run from 1975-1988, at which point it merged with Eagle. Battle Action, Battle Action […]

Comic Book Review: Judge Dredd Megazine #424

2000AD’s sister title, the Judge Dredd Megazine, reaches an incredible milestone this month with the release of issue 424, which celebrates the publication’s 30th anniversary. It’s incredibly impressive considering how much the British comic book landscape has changed in the years since the first issue hit newsagents in 1990. Back then, there was a pretty healthy and vibrant selection of […]

Comic Book Review: 2000AD Regened

Regular readers of the blog – and my Twitter followers – can’t have failed to notice that I’ve been covering an awful lot of 2000AD-related material over the past few months. It started on my birthday, when I purchased a copy of the latest Judge Dredd Megazine as a treat to myself; it wasn’t long before thrill-power took over once […]

Comic Book Review: The Ballad of Halo Jones: Volume 2

Having recently reviewed the first volume of Alan Moore and Ian Gibson’s classic series, it was only a matter of time before I reacquainted myself with the continuing chronicles of Halo Jones – and, as with the first volume, it’s been an absolute joy to rediscover the series and experience it all over again, several decades later. The second volume […]

Comic Book Review: Smash! 2020 Special

I’ve already taken a look at most of the 2020 Specials that have been released by 2000AD publisher Rebellion so far – so it was only a matter of time before I reached Smash! It’s a lot wackier and irreverent in tone to comics such as Action (which got its own Special this year) or 2000AD itself (even though neither […]

Comic Book Review: Zombo: Can I Eat You Please?

Until recently, I hadn’t been a regular reader of 2000AD for close to 20 years. I’d dive into the odd Special and Annual issues here and there to read one-off stories, but I hadn’t been keeping up with the weekly series for a long time. Mostly, it’s because you’ll often pick up an issue of 2000AD when at least a […]

Humble Bundle: Judge Dredd, 2000AD & More

Oddly coinciding with my renewed interest in 2000AD and Dredd – which was mostly prompted by my viewing of excellent documentary Future Shock: The Story of 2000AD – there’s a new bundle available at Humble for the next three weeks which contains an awful lot of fantastic material from the Galaxy’s Greatest Comic. It’s for good causes too, with the […]

Kickstarter: Sniper Elite – The Board Game

I was late to the party with Rebellion’s hugely popular, long-running Sniper Elite series. The first one I played was Sniper Elite 3; I was immediately blown away by the open nature of each stage and the huge variety on offer with which to cause gory, sometimes painfully detailed, chaos. The Sniper Elite games see players cast as – spoiler […]

Comic Book Review: 2000AD Sci-Fi Special 2020

Since I watched superb documentary Future Shock: The Story of 2000AD, I’ve been making an effort to finally work my way through the 2000AD and Judge Dredd comics that I’d acquired and not quite got around to reading. I’ve even managed to get through other Rebellion-published comics recently, perhaps most notably for readers of the blog – seeing as I […]
