It’s got The Courtship Of Jenna Markarov, Love and War (prog 2000), The Rudinstein Regulars, another Love and War (1200 - 1207), Battleship Potemkin, One Last Night in the House Of Sin. Haven’t read it yet though so I could have missed some

Got my Dante v3 yesterday. I get mine from my local comic shop, who orders me a copy alongside my prog. Strangely enough I seem to be ahead of subscribers at present. Is this some glitch?

Shocking, but I’m guessing they’re as rare as Unicorn Poop this year. My own thrill merchant only got 5 copies and if I hadn’t hassled him on Facefook this morning, he’d have forgotten to save me one. Apparently seven others tried to bag ‘emselves one in the same manner, but ‘cos I’m a loyal Squaxx I got special treatment (exactly why I buy from him every week and not subscribe). Here’s hoping everyone manages to get a copy.

The whole thing’s just FUN, innit? Surprisingly quite a lot in it too, for its size. Dredd was my highlight, just a joy.
Gonna leave it out for Tiny Rocka to discover and see if she digs it...

Odd you say that, Jimbo - for me the repro in this volume is the only thing that lets it down, particularly on the McMahon chapters. I wonder if it’s an inconsistency, if you put two copies side by side there’d be differing levels of consistency?

Just to add to the madness, I get mine reserved by my local comic shop every fortnight, and today’s issue (Zombo) hasn’t turned up. He’s been invoiced for it, but it’ll likely come with the next one, he tells me. What IS going on?

Not feeling it, myself. The whole thing just looks pointless. Still, nobody’s forcing (!) me to see it, so I doubt I’ll bother.

Like everyone else, I’m loving the prog again after a bit of a lengthy blip. Everything in it this week is a must read, even SinDex, which I’ve hated until recently.

Only gripe is that the art on Anderson makes it difficult to tell what’s going on for the second week on the run. But it’s David Roach though and he’s one of my absolute favourites, so it’s easily forgivable. It looks wonderful, but I find it hard to see what’s happening in some of the action sequences. It is just ‘cos I’ve forgotten where we’re up to in previous stories?

All is great now though. Cheers THARG!

Prog / Re: Prog 2073 - Future Visions!

After seriously considering jacking the prog in recently, this for me is s glorious return to form. I wasn't too keen on the Future Shock, the first two pages took several readings before I understood what was going on, and Jaegir's not my bag baby (Rogue Trooper without Rogue Trooper! Eh?).
But, unlike the last few months, the mixed bag nature of it all means it's right back to where I like it. Hell I've even come to enjoy Sinister Dexter of late (hated it for 20 years!), and unlike Slaine and ABC'S, THAT'S how you do five pages of two people talking and keep it interesting!

Thank you Tharg, I'm a satisfied squaxx again.

Get Out

I was gonna switch off after 20 minutes, thinking it was becoming very predictable. How wrong can you be? SO glad I didn't. This is wonderful filmmaking, superb acting, just a class act all round. Tense, with elements of social commentary and outright bananas craziness,  I really recommend this. Fab.

I get mine reserved at my local comic shop in Preston every fortnight, got issue 15 with my prog as usual on Wednesday as normal. It's a thing of beauty, well worth the wait! Classic modern Stront in my opinion

Film & TV / Re: Preacher (TV Series)...

The second season started with a couple of crackers and had an absolutely fantastic one with Herr Starr, then proceeded to blow it by having a run right til the end that was simply dull. How the hell d’you make a tv show based on PREACHER that’s DULL?

That said, my mates who’ve never read the comic seem to all love it, so maybe it’s just those of us that love the comic feel a bit cheated? I know I’d have enjoyed the show more if they hadn’t made Jesse into an insufferable prick. And actually included Tulip in it somewhere.

Another big +1 for Godless over here, just finished the last episode.
Blimey! Best western since Open Range. Absolutely fantastic. Wanna watch it all over again now, but Jessica Jones season 2 beckons....

I thought it was really good fun, and not one to be taken seriously. Then again, I generally enjoy just about all of Carlos’s Dredds, even to the point of Inferno and Frankenstein Division. You just have to, er, turn yer brain off for one or two of ‘em....
