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.

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.

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!

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.)

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: £££.

Some new items added – mostly subscription goodies.

Incidentally, I got the premium subs letter, despite not being a premium subscriber. Seems like that erroneously went to everyone. I got confirmation on Facebook my subscription would not change.

Suggestions / Re: Dredd compared to The Punisher on Netflix

You do also wonder whether that might tempt Urban back into the helmet. Having him there for a 13-episode run seems a big ask. But the odd cameo?

Horses for courses, I suppose. While none of the five you list are among my favourites, I was pleasantly surprised on re-reading two (World At Law and Weird Science). That said, I'm not prioritising Stars of Psi-Div in my reading pile…

The collection does at times feel a bit stretched – like a 60-book list expanded to 80. I do wonder what the next ten books will include.

bookplate Fall of Deadworld
Having chanced upon a copy of the standard hardback in town, I wish I'd have grabbed a copy of this now. It's a really lovely book.
