From February 1981 (again): 2000AD celebrates reaching its 200th issue - ahem - prog.
The official organ of the Mighty One is about to celebrate its 2000th issue (who would have imagined?) but I've posted this today to mark STARLOGGED's 2000th post. Yes. Really.
I noticed a couple of months ago that I was approaching the unexpected landmark and I thought this was as good a cover as any to hold back for the big one.
I never thought STARLOGGED would chug on past the first dozen or so posts so this whopping figure is a revelation to me as well. It also means that I have posted well over 2000 different items on here, which is a sobering thought as 95% of things come from my own collection. No wonder I have no space, no money and a frustrated flatmate.
Last week I took one of Starlogged's periodic rest weeks but I used the time constructively (so say I) to dive deep into some previously uncharted boxes to scan some more goodies. I also travelled a little further than usual (not far) and used the opportunity to tawl some outlets I don't usually get a chance to visit and picked up a few bargains (RED DRAWF smegazines for 25p each for example) that will also pop up here in the months ahead.
Thanks to everyone who stops by regularly (go spread the word) and especially thanks to everyone who comments occasionally or regularly.
If you are a relative newcomer, don't be afraid to dive into the Starlogged back catalogue that dates back to 2012 (those early posts were written at Cafe Nero, a relative stone's throw from the banks of the Thames and the one-time HQ of MARVEL UK) and see what you discover.
