As ever with right wingers, just look at what they're raging at to find an explanation for their behavior.  In Trump's case, it's "fake news"
Worse, a recent poll (yes, I know) has over 4 in 10 Republicans believing accurate but negative news was "fake news". We're all screwed.

My guess would mostly be classic Rogue. My hope is a few bits of classic, the entirety of War Machine, Cinnebar, and some choice cuts of Rennie's run.

Eh?
I thought Football Crazy was abysmal last time I read it. A real low-point.

Up to the end of Play it Again, Sam is 221 pages
I was under the impression there were only two Robo-Hunter books, not three. Still, as Hachette has already said the Hogan run will not be included, it'll be interesting to see what will be. (I'd much sooner have those – and in colour – than Samantha Slade.)

Hmm. So that now raises the question of what might fill the extra space, assuming the next two books aren't a bit skinnier.

Got my books too, the repro in Robo-Hunter is fantastic
Bit random in my copy. Some of Verdus is very washed out and faint. It's not Mega Collection bad, but nothing like the Nemesis book. Relatively poor source files, presumably. I was also a bit surprised to hear Football Crazy was being reprinted, until checking on Barney and seeing it's only 30 pages. Man, that dreck clouded by view of the previous Robo-Hunter reprint. Still, with about 400 pages of classic Robo-Hunter left to collect, what will be omitted? (This assuming the strip gets only two volumes and not three, which would have contained everything and the Hogan run, too.)

and both books put the Transformers collection to shame with their page counts. Zarjaz!
They are chunky. I've not seen the Transformers books, beyond Target: 2006, which I grabbed for two quid, and then immediately decided not to subscribe to because of the appalling repro. It looks like IDW's given up on the strip, too, unless the sixth UK Classics book might finally appear over two years later than originally scheduled.

General / Re: ABC Warriors timeline in light of comments in Fallout
« on: 16 January, 2018, 03:18:39 pm »
In a sense, I'd prefer it if I could do that, but so much about Pat's writing in ABC Warriors is about fixing/talking about continuity/history. It kind of needs to be a Doctor Who – there's so much messing about with time that you simply can't tie it all together. In the event, that's not what really happens.

Film & TV / Re: The Punisher TV series whats the verdict? worth catching?
« on: 16 January, 2018, 03:16:38 pm »
Mrs IP's agreed to continue watching it, and we mulled during episode 2 that, amusingly, the hero – who's basically a functioning psychopath – is far more likeable and interesting than Danny Rand. (Our personal Marvel Netflix ranking is something like JJ > LC > Defenders > DD 1 >>>>>> all the DD 2 bits without DD/MM in >>>>>>>>>>>>> all the other bits of DD 2 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> several days later >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Idiot Rich Boy And His Glowing Hand.)

Punisher so far would fit in somewhere around the middle (Defendersish), I think. And his wife does have a name! In the subtitles only, natch, but that's something.

Megazine / Re: Meg 392 - Dredd vs Death
« on: 14 January, 2018, 02:00:23 pm »
That'd certainly be a twist – and a way of ending the Dredd universe (which, presumably would amusingly and ironically lead to Dredd 2 somehow happening).

As for the Meg, I've not bothered with the floppy, but liked most of the rest. Ape+Dredd is a great combo, Lawless continues to shine, and Koburn gets a good intro. I'm less convinced by Devlin Waugh. I'm not sure McConville has the voice right, and it's weird to see things that were always dangling in the background as flavour be the centrepiece for a strip. Some things are best left unseen and untold, and that's the feeling I get here.

Either he'll quit after his first term as the "best president ever" or he'll get a second term. Those are the only two scenarios, bar karma giving him a heart attack on a golf course.

As for the shithole comment, it says everything about the man. He's a disgrace.

And Outlier, from only a few years back. At this rate, the floppy will soon be reprinting bits of last month's Meg.

News / Re: Durham Red- Born Bad!
« on: 11 January, 2018, 02:06:02 pm »
Unreality is fine, but I would hope we're a bit beyond 'something for the dads' now in 2000 AD. Durham Red was always a bit Smurfette anyway, but her outfit was a bit… And then the future one was even worse. I do nonetheless agree regarding the Vampirella one, though. The original's not suitable, but the new one's not good.

As for Durham Red, I'm hopeful – given the talent doing it – that we'll see something good. And at least there's the line: "Rest assured, Durham won’t be spending the entire series in her underwear!" (You'd really hope not, especially given Tharg's recent defensive answer to a letter about female characters’ attire in the Christmas issue.)

General / Re: Judge Dredd spin off graphic novels.

Set up an alarm on eBay, I'd say. Looks like last month, four copies of this were available on eBay.

Incidentally, I also have a miscut copy of this – one page was 'folded' inwards, meaning it needs trimming, and has an obvious fold line across it. But if you want it in the meantime while you search for a pristine copy, you can have it for P&P costs.

I assume there will be another Image one along soon...
Here's hoping. In the meantime: Top Shelf.

A pity. As for the reason, possibly this: £££.
