Oops! With the exception of the post above, which I don't think was tongue in cheek  :D!

I'll say no more!

Oh pish!

I haven't read or written as many posts on this forum as others but it's pretty obvious that Frank's posts are firmly tongue in cheek.

That is in addition to being insanely detailed, closely argued and often wildly hyperbolic for comic effect.

The man's clearly a maniac  :o but a highly entertaining one!

Mostly like the cover but an odd looking Lawmaster...front wheel must be much smaller than the rear one.

Not a fan of those Sons of Booth based stories and whilst Grey Area is going along ok, not much else in the prog grabs me at the moment.

Still, at least the Survival Geeks are back next prog  ::)

Yes, that last panel of Dredd's great! The story rounds off nicely and I hope Manco becomes a regular on Dredd.

The Order based cover image also has real punch, the strip itself is the usual wyrmy piffle.

We'll have to see how the 3riller ends but it does appear to have taken a cliched turn. Mutti's art is nice though, rather Yeowell esque.

Richardson's art would be better used elsewhere than with the big robots I think.

Developments in Grey Area aren't entirely unexpected, although the detail of it is, but it will be interesting to see where he Dabnett takes us with this..

Manco’s art is awesome - apart from the Judges’ helmets which take the gloss off it for me.

When you think about it there are number of artists who seemed to struggle with it at one point or another e.g. in Ron Smith and Ian Gibson’s first few strips it just didn’t look right, I never really liked Will Simpson’s rendition, even ...shock horror I don’t like the way Bolland draws them these days...not that he actually does it much anymore.

Maybe it is that in reality it’s actually quite a cumbersome design (?).

I really like the way Manco does the helmets, although I can see why people might not.

Dredd and the judges generally must be very arduous to draw.  The helmet, all the pads (especially the eagle one), the badge and chain and the belt buckle and pouches.

Manco continues to excel on Dredd.

Not really bothered by anything else.

In this prog the guest appearance is a character that I didn't much like appearing in a strip that I also don't much like, so it doesn't bother me too much but the trend is rather lame.   

Don't like to be so negative, did I mention how good Manco is on Dredd...

I got my death today too, it's pretty good.

Like some others up thread, it seems I'm behind on the books though. No sign of the Meltdown volume - which I am really looking forward to - or the Slaine.

Rather reluctant to contact them to correct this though as might well cause some other problem...

I've just put a couple of classic pages up on Ebay. And a couple of prints.

Don't have room to hang them, so thought I'd free them from their portfolio case.


Hope the link works...

Just read last week's prog and this week's, one after the other...

What really stands out to me is the art on Dredd. Superb. Last week's episode had some anachronisms but this week's seems more in step with Dredd's time. More from this droid please!  The story seemed a bit tired to begin with but the ending this week is intriguing.

Grey Area is not as engaging as it was, but enjoyable and clearly well-written and drawn.  Resting B-F and her eccentric clothing will be sorely missed. I find Deadworld quite confusing but it's so messed up that I can't help enjoying it.

The rest is pretty poor...the Order is incomprehensible nonsense and I get the feeling that even if I could make sense of it, it wouldn't interest me. Wyrms….good grief! The terror tale was rudimentary, both the story and the art I thought. I know many like Hitchcock's art, I'm afraid it looks rather basic to me. Karl Richardson's excellent art on the other hand is sadly wasted on that robot computer game of a strip.

A could do better for Tharg - but more Manco please!

Oooh you're skating on thin ice there Frank...

I'm not sure if that's a permitted visual metaphor.
