I quite enjoyed Wogue Wobots, glad Robot Wars has made it into the collection, although I'm not sure the Walter solo stories were an essential inclusion. I think Giant was my favourite story in this book.

Did anyone else think that the segment of the episode that showed the bomb testing and Bob arriving in the ensuing atomic chaos was just like an extended version of the stargate from the end of 2001: A Space Odyssey?

Not sure if it was a homage, rip-off, or what, but it just felt a bit jarring for me. 

However, the phrase 'Got a light?' will now forever send chills down my spine.

Thinking about it, that part is reminiscent, but that whole episode reminded me more of Eraserhead than anything else.

No spoilers Colin, but just to say - you ain't seen nothing yet....

Forgot to mention it's like a mash-up of King Kong and Godzilla.

Rampage. Some films defy any intellectualisation and this is one. Mostly terrible dialogue, wanton destruction and Jeffery Dean Morgan enjoying chewing the scenery as a Negan-lite government agent. An absolute guilty pleasure which I enjoyed immensely.

A Quiet Place. Really liked this. A great idea and maintained a high level of tension throughout. Nicked ideas from a few other films, but it's getting harder not to do that. Highly entertaining.

I never quite understood what that weird sequence with David Bowie in FBI HQ was about... but I love the fact it's there.

Such a lovely and strange scene  :lol:

I connect it to the disappearance of agent Desmond and Cooper. That he came from where they went. Arriving in a vision, a bit like Cooper later does when he is asking Laura not to take the ring.

I'm hoping you've seen the big chunk of deleted scenes from the film with Bowie?

I love seeing his character cameo quickly in TP:FWWM - one of my favourite Bowie moments in film - but those deleted scenes are just bugnut-insane...

The David Bowie sequences from both the final cut of FWWM and The Missing Pieces are "explained" in Twin Peaks series 3, along with a whole lot more bugnut insanity. Highly recommended if you can handle 18 hours of full-on David Lynch.

Ghostbusters, 2016 version. A good mix of action and comedy, with fun cameos from the original cast.

Open Windows. An attempt at a tech thriller that's way too contrived and ridiculous to make any sense whatsoever, which sometimes can give entertainment value, but not in this case. Pants.

I hope the reprinted Vol 80 does happen soon!

The reprinted volume 80 came with my copy of Blood of Emeralds, with Murd's cloak present and correct next to the Brit-Cit judge.

In the 2018 World Cup Panini sticker album you can have a sticker of yourself made up - with room in the sticker book for it. Surely when you make it to the finish line of a Hachette series they could offer a personalised book - volume 91- you choose! Junker! Maniac 5! Armoured Gideon! You decide!

I liked Armoured Gideon. Have i got rose-tinted glasses on?

Cool. Think that more or less wraps things up, as we already know the last issue will be War on the Streets, there's another Anderson volume, and I'm sure I read somewhere that Enceladus would be appearing.

Not sure that'll leave any room/theme for The Graveyard Shift (unless that's in WotS?) and Pirates of the Black Atlantic, so hoping for these in the 2000AD collection.

What an intriguing thread starter. As a starter for ten, I'd like to put up Portrait of a Mutant and Rage up there as my favourite Tooth stories of all time, along with the best of Dredd. They show all aspects of Johnny's character, his troubled nature, his desire for righteousness, his human-ness. He's one of the all-time greats, and while his death was a mis-step, I think that was learned from. Maybe though, in the style of Dredd, we need to see to an aging Johnny....

I enjoyed Nemesis volume 3 with the exception of Book 9, which seemed to me to be too meandering and with uninteresting peripheral characters. Not to detract from John Hicklenton's art, which is incredible at times, but the story just wasn't there for me.

I was intrigued about HG Wells accusing Joseph Conrad of plagiarism, I didn't know about that before.
