Yeah - reading it at the time, I just assumed his belt issues were part of the general mockery of the ineffectiveness of most of the heroes in the face of cosmic horror, but of course Morrison's actually trying to flag up the revelation coming a few episodes later...

"Your oratory is worthless here, Torquemada. I chose these Terminators for their loyalty to me. Show him, men... are you with me?"
"NO! WE'RE WITH TORQUEMADA!"
"Truly it is said... give me a Termite for the first ten years of their life and they're mine for the rest of it!"

From now on, I will judge any supposed Epic on whether Anthrax could do a new verse of I Am The Law based on it

I used to think all this Judge Smiley malarkey was absolutely awful stuff - a real low point in my enjoyment or otherwise of Dredd - but the creation of your verse has single-handedly justified its existence and restored my faith in humanity.

I don't know if there'll come a point when it gets increasingly difficult to play it 'solo', but so far that's been my approach. If I've been passing through an area where people are fighting against computer-controlled foes in an 'event', I've lent a hand, but apart from that, just been going about doing my own thing.

Haven’t done too much of the main quest line yet, mostly just exploring, building and enjoying getting dragged off on side-quests. I like how desolate it all feels, and I love encountering all the weird little vignettes – it’s far closer in atmosphere to Fallout 3 than it is New Vegas or 4. It’s getting some stinking reviews, but I’m finding it enormous fun, so I must be doing something wrong.

I had absolutely no intention of buying this. The idea of an online Fallout game didn't particularly interest me. And yet... somehow I seem to be playing it, and, despite the rather superfluous onliney-ness, enjoying it. How did that happen?

Paragraphs are a tool wielded by the upper-classes to enforce artificial divisions on the text of society!

Our mums must have been wheeled into the delivery suite within minutes of each other, Greg.

From what you've said previously, I'm pretty sure our first progs are only weeks away from each other (I'm 506, for what it's worth.)

Not sure how I missed this thread before: I do like a list.

Non-Dredd:

1: Bad Company Bk2
2: Bad Company Bk1
3: The Dead Man (others seem to be listing this as a Dredd story, for obvious reasons, but it appeared under its own title, and is very much its own thing.)
4: Revere (I know there’s 3 books, but they’re only six episodes each, so I’ll count it all as one.)
5: Chopper: Song of the Surfer
6: The Dead
7: Nemesis the Warlock: Bk V
8: Nemesis the Warlock: Bk I
9: Ace Trucking Co.: The Great Mush Rush
10: Zenith: Phase III

Dredd:
1: Necropolis
2: Young Giant
3: The Raggedy Man
4: Hitman
5: In the Bath
6: Crazy Barry, Little Mo / Banana City
7: The Pit
8: Blood Cadets
9: The Apocalypse War
10: The Lurker

And a superb grail page for Dave. With Carlos in all his magnificence.

Which I own! Had a chat with Dave on this topic - it's his favourite Carlos page ever, but it's probably mine too, unfortunately (for Dave!)

But any story that brings in Richard E. Grant's Withnail as an alcoholic magician is ok by me.

That's funny - I always think Willoughby Kipling's the worst thing in Doom Patrol, 'cos he' s such an obvious lift.
