Film & TV / Re: Han Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)

Ron Howard seems to constitute the entirety of the Han Solo PR team, and while I like his style, the hints still don't exactly inspire.  Most recent:  looks like the spice mines of Kessel are definitely going to feature, in addition to the eponymous run-sigh-

I'd say he was 90% Bolland, with a mixture of Greg Staples and Cliff Robinson thrown in for the last 10%. The shoulder pads are unmistakably 100% Bolland design though. The look of the various armor pieces and weapons are all very "Planet Replicas".

The quality is excellent on this figure. It leaves the 1/12 version that 3a did miles behind in the dust. Very solid body with nice ratchet joints and sturdy wrist pegs, just a massive improvement all round. I am very impressed with him.

Mm. That Dredd finale didn't sit right with me either. The apology felt right, but the sentencing was the kind of thing he'd have kicked another judge's arse for in any other strip.

Elsewhere, it was broadly a decent prog. The Future Shock was really smartly done and my favourite thing in the Prog, Hope and Alienist ended in a manner that just about makes me want to see more of both, and Greysuit ended.

Been fiddling around with Dredd and it seems with every new pose I put him in, I get another artist vibe. I initially saw him as mostly Bollandish, with a dash of Staples and Dillon, mixed with McMahon lite boots, but the eagle and shoulder pads exude Ezquerra.

So, so good!

Shows how much effect it had on me – I totally forgot it has been in the MC. (Although I also now recall not finding it too bad a read in one hit.)

Have to say, Dredd’s speech in the third last panel felt a little bit un-Dredd like. Overall though, liked this story. Some great art too! I quite liked the lawmaster attack panels, myself. Bet that stung!

More love for the Future Shock from me, lovely stuff.

Roll on 2050! And of course the Misty/Scream special!

Surely the greatest fear is that one of the three Dredd will be Helter Skelter.

Helter Skelter already appeared in The Day The Law Died volume of the Mega Collection, and it's been confirmed there won't be any duplication between the two collections, so fear not.

News / Re: Zenith returns in Prog 2050!

Oh, really? Damn.

I'm slightly stunned that the prog's line-up conspicuously didn't list Zenith as a strip and yet fans have worked themselves up into a frenzy over a new series, or even a one-off, when it was really quite obvious that wasn't what was happening…

Agreed, but that's the fault of a certain PR droid who wasn't averse to giving that impression in the Thrill-mail
Exactly.

Megazine / Re: Meg 388 - This Means Waugh!

The Meg remains in very good form. I really enjoyed the Dredd a nice one, off centre one off and man I love Nick Dyer's art so all good here. Anderson I've been enjoying up to now but this episode felt by and large to just not move things on. Its as if the story was commissioned but didn't quite fill the space it was meant to and had tooo beee sttrrreettcccchhhheeddd. Still lets see how it progresses from here, as I say its been good to date.

Movie Dredd was fun enough. The 'happy' ending felt a little cranked on and forced into place, but overall probably my favourite movie Dredd story to date.

Now normally I'd leave Dark Dominion to the end - after all its bloomin' brilliant, I'm loving it, which defies all expectation. After all like Proudhuff I'm well and truly done with the Dark Judges. Haven't really like them for the longest time and I'm not Nick Percival's biggest fan. Here however with the glorious 'Alien' vibe superbly in place everything just clicks together perfectly. The scene were the survivors wakes in the hibanation chamber and then explores the surrounding of death is just chilling and gloriously realised.

But there's a bigger issue in the Meg this week and one I've genuinely approached with an open mind and the return of Devlin Waugh without John Smith is a big deal... except its not... it loved glorious and Mike Dowling produces typically fantastic work. Storywise its not bad... not bad at all... just not great... and I couldn't help but wonder... alas wondering will do me no good and I've got to take this on face value and will continue to do so. So on those terms not a bad start and enough to give me hope.

The added bonus is the floppie, previously normally unread as its normally been stories I have is starting to become essential reading as again it cover material I don't own. Here the 'Whatever happened to' stories are hit and miss... or rather hit and mah. Nothing is terrible but not much (Tweak really) is great.Still the fact that its new material is great news and more than makes up for this months lukewarm text article.

Over all The Meg is becoming superb value.

Bottom line: naughty people - need punishment!
