That Weston piece needs to be a A1 print. That’s amazing.

Tbf all the art on display in the last few pages has been amazing. I’d love to read all of yeowells sin Dex run in black and white.

Garth still on the auto-buy list - he turns in a solid 4/5 series a year including war stories. As well as the PJ World Of Tanks offing his A Walk Thru Hell is great. Jimmys Bastards (bond comedy pastiche where his bastard children all hunt him down) was ya’know.. okay. Dastardly & Mutley had some solid jokes but not really an IP I dig.

Really good Garth stuff from the last decade includes Rover Red Charlie (dogs in the zombie apocalypse) and  The Last German Winter (War stories #7-9 ) (reminds me of his greatest story to date - Dear Billy.)

Sin Dex bashing baffles me - it’s a fun series that always offers decent jokes, puns and dialogue. It also varies up its content (such as the recent diner convo episode) away from the standard 2000ad formula of ‘resolution (from last week), set up, cliff hanger’. The Simon Davis stuff remains some of the best long arc narrative stuff in the progs history. The only time my patience with it was tested was when a particularly minimalist artist had a long run at it and didn’t seem to be bringing much to the table. Soon as the artist changed it was back to a solid-to-great regular. Week in week out Abnett creates great stuff for Tharg and long may he continue to do so. The guy is an absolute powerhouse of quality comics writing.

I’m glad they did what they did and love their stuff.

Nobody can ask a company to constantly lose money or squander their resources for minimal returns.

Thanks for what you gave us 3A. Especially ash and Gregory.

You know I'm always really surprised that I've not jumped on board the Britannica chariot, it should be right up my street.

Pete Milligan = check
Romans = check
Mystical demonic stuff = ... oh that's why...

I've expressed my love for all comics Roman on this site before, but I've got so tired with all comics based in ancient Rome and its Empire having to drag in magical and demonic stuff. Can we not just get a good comic about this fascinating period of history without Nero (or whomever) having demonic tentrills crawling out his butt or some such?

Last years Black Road - a five star in its own right - sorta hits that tho its POV is a Norwegian barbarian (the awesome very 2000ad-ish Magnus The Black) concerned with the Romans spread of Christianity into his land. That comic absolutely rocked.

As a postie, I doubt very much that it is being pinched in the delivery office(I realise you were probably making a joke) because we deal with so much post and anyone who frequently doesn't get something they have on subscription will complain. I should also say that Rebellion subs department is excellent and it's a very rare time that the prog isn't there to deliver on a Saturday.

2094 is now the third week in a row it hasn’t shown up. Last sub issue I received was 2091 on the 21st July. It’s pretty clear someone near the end of the line is lifting it as it’s specifically mine not arriving rather than one earlier in the chain where there would be greater numbers to lift and so less chance it being my copy.

The Satanic Bible, Anton LaVey.
An eye-opening book indeed, written by the founder of the modern Church of Satan. In this church, Satan is not worshipped as a personification of evil, nor even as an entity or being but as a simple dark force of Nature. There are no human or animal sacrifices, no obligatory orgies, no drinking of blood. There are "magical" rituals, though, and not used exclusively to wreak evil either but to bring to people that which they deserve; help for good people and harm for bad people. It is basically a religion based on indulgence rather than abstinence with its own version of The Golden Rule: do unto others as others do unto you. Based on selfishness rather than altruism, one can see why materialistic people would find the Church of Satan attractive.
In the end, though, it is still a religion like any other; promising its members privileges in return for allegiance.
Still a fascinating read, though, and well worth the time of anyone interested in occult (or hidden) knowledge.

Did you hear about the time John McCrea funded the Church of Satan in belfast?*

(* it’s quite possible - nay highly likely - John McCrea didn’t have a clue what was going on)

Events / Derry Comiccity festival - October 27th

Well between enniskillen, omagh and the return (ish) of 2d Derry (under a new name for licensing reasons) - Norn Iron seems to have turned into the home of 2000ad related festivals.

That cover is lush.

Love it.

Cover - ahem. Fantastic. Fans should be gushing in praise for that cover.

Dredd - pretty solid opener but agree the helmets (an aesthetic choice) looked a bit crap. What appeared to be a C20th fire hydrant surprised me too. And the story-telling around the cars destruction wasn’t too clear - I only worked out the persons laying waste to the Justice Dept wagon were the people previously in the car due to the conversation with Hersey after initially I assumed they were other members of the gang. But good. Lots of stuff - action, story, justice dept politics to get ones teeth into. Kudos to Chris Blythe’s colours too.

The Order - trade-waiting this

Terror Tale - this was really good. It was a bit decompressed but that was filled with nice stuff and the story kept moving. The ending seemed open-ended (the daughter is evil or the doll is real and took a new host but that’s fine. It works well and was a great use of the art droid’s style too. Great work all round.

Grey Area - me sad. Hate you guys.

Deadworld - sorta anti-climatic after what happened in Grey Area. Tharg defo should have switched their order as ‘cheap’ deaths mean less after grieving for departed much-loved characters. But god this is still a good strip. More!

Absolutely firing prog - top marks all round. Off to read Droid life and damage report now..
