Isn’t Dredd’s black horse his equivalent of Frank’s snowflake - in effect, the code totem that Smiley’s programmed him with? As in, only he can see it? Or am I reading all this wrong?

Bohemian Rhapsody - it’s cliched, generic, gets everything in the wrong order and misses out all the interesting bits, but by grud, me and mini Rocka loved every minute. An absolute powerhouse performance from the lead (and the guy playing Brian May is just a clone of the man), an it’s the second time now that “Who Wants To Live Forever” has made me shed a tear during a movie. So long as you’re not a complete Queen hater, this is just a GREAT night out in the cinema.

Ah right, I try and avoid this thread a bit so it’s a nice surprise when I pick my book up with my prog from my local thrill merchant. Stories in Kingdom 2 are His Masters Voice, Aux Drift, And Beast Of Eden. A thing of beauty it is too, except for the end covers.

Excellent proggage these last few weeks, I’m enjoying everything in it. Cheers, Mighty One!

You’re SO right, Jimbo. If there’s never any more Strontium Dog, then it’s ended perfectly. Huge condolences, my friend.

So hard to put to put into words the sheer love and admiration I have for this man and his work... I would not be the man I am today without it.
Know though, that no matter how bad you’re feeling about this, there are loads of us out there feeling the same. Sending out some love to you all, we’re all in this together.
And my, what a lot of pleasure he brought us.
Goodbye Carlos. We love you.

“Fitness Test” (prog 1484), where he goes to retire an old judge , another of Morph’s rookies, then takes some personal time and sits in his old watching bay. Still gets me every time I read it.
So much going on there, under that helmet.

To be fair, it was gone 2am when I watched Avengers, and I’ve not really been following all the Marvel movies, so I probably missed a few bits and bobs here and there.

Anyway Ghost Stories
Nice little British horror with more jumps than the Grand National. Wasn’t keen on the ending, but hey, it was a little different. And once again, Paul Whitehouse proves himself to be one of our best actors, and should be immediately promoted to the status of National Treasure.

Avengers Infinity War
Loads of interchangeable superheroes fight each other with their CGI superpowers over and over and you generally won’t know or give a toss who’s who or why you should care but then something happens in space and the bad guy’s clearly the most interesting character but then everyone has to go to Africa and fight some more FOR NO REASON and the bad guy does stuff and the green girl’s completely gorgeous and it all ends in a puff of anti- logic and you’ll wonder why you bothered.

Better than Justice League though.

BEST PROG IN AGES for me... been getting downhearted with it again in the last few weeks, but a great Dredd, hilarious Terror Tale, and suddenly The Order and Deadworld are forgiven any sins. Only Gray Area, usually one of my faves, is the weak link, thanks to a hefty overdose of exposition and some (for me) kinda shoddy art. Still, I really enjoyed this week, extra oil for all droids concerned.

Coupled with this fortnights Ultimate Collection (ABC’s volume 2), which I really didn’t think I’d enjoy but absolutely LOVED, I’m one happy Squaxx tonight. Cheers, Mighty One!
