Can’t believe Dominion is going to wrap up already.

For something that’s been running for months (counting the previous story as well) the Anderson “epic” just petered out really. It never really felt that exciting given what was meant to be happening.

Dredd had a couple of nice scenes especially between Dr Boris and her partner / intern but overall descended into silliness and not in a good way.

Devlin Waugh. I think this series is the first time I have actually liked this strip.

Lawless. More like flawless.

Oh and Helium reads nicely in one go. I do hope that isn’t it and we do actually get some more.

Ah-hah, of course, thanks Joe! Have to dig out the Prog in question now, but from memory a pretty significant lift, but no worse than 50% of all Future Shocks, or Pat Mills strips for that matter ('The 6 Million Dollar Man, but with Deathlok's computer', etc.). As you may have guessed I'm reading 'Be Pure, Be Vigilant, Behave', and despite my undying love of Mills, the double standards are really beginning to wear.

Facebook can be horrific when you stray from your own circle of friends (sometimes even when you stray from your own page.) But on your page you are the boss. I intentionally turned Facebook into safe ground ages ago, after one to many confrontation. it's only social media if you make it that way and it's only anti social media if you let it be.

I recently signed back up to Facebook after years away from it, is there a more public slant to facebook now with more interactions between strangers?

I'm also hoping the art competition comes back soon, I may lurk a lot and not enter but I often check on it!

Apologies for hijacking this thread, but do we know which PKD story Pat 'Damnation Alley' Mills alleges* was plagiarised by a 2000AD drold, only to be rumbled by the readers?


*in 'Be Pure, Be Vigilant, Behave!'.

I thought it was One Man's Meat (Beyond Lies the Wub)?

Sorry, just seen this.

Going by the description by Sheridan's friend of...

them from behind.. The 'heroes' are also mutants - with lizard tails."

...Stevie seems to remember this as being drawn by John Stokes. Don't have the progs at hand, but Barney suggests that it coud be either:

Oh What a Lovely War 1 episode (Prog 464) 4 pages
Script: Oleh Stepaniuk, Artist: John Stokes

Biological Warfare 1 episode (Prog 466) 3 pages
Script: Oleh Stepaniuk, Artist: John Stokes

In response to shaolin's op, PKD's sole children's book is well worth tracking down

Earlier stuff is quite accessible. Ganeymede Take Over, Game Players of Titan.  His short stories are excellent, the second variety is a classic. Z

 Anyone really looking forward to getting the first figurine? I think we'll get the Nemesis figure in Jan/Feb? I would imagine the figurines will become real collectors items, especially the later ones like Dante and Dredd.

Journey to Hell is great, you philistines!  ;) Carlos's double-page spreads are absolutely glorious - I've said this many times, but it's easy to forget just how good he is at evoking a nightmarish ambience in his stories. Give him the chance to draw some zombies or skellingtons, and the man's in his infernal element - to wit, the 'Desert of the Living Dead' spread, which is as evocative as it gets.

Yep this... kinda... Journey to Hell is good, very good, but its not Portrait of a Mutant or Rage good but its damned good....

Is it Dante next? If so better start thinking about where I'm going to pick that up...
