That was a particularly good Sinister Dexter this week.

I prefer these daft comedy one-parters to the massive sprawling epic storylines, at least where SinDex is concerned.

That's quite possibly the cover of year for me.

That was my first thought.  Revere would be absolutely perfect for Boo Cook's style and that cover is proof positive.  We need to start a petition!

That's no way to talk about Revere.

I see Dredd by PJ, Davis on Slaine too
I read Tharg's thrills, for me and you
and I think to myself, what a wonderful Prog.

I read Sinister and Dexter, running through Downlode too
I see Absalom with a historical view
And I think to myself what a wonderful Prog

I see Indigo Prime, yes the writer might not be quite right
The story is blessed though, the art a delight
And I think to myself what a wonderful Prog

The puns by Adnett and Yeowell so pretty on the eye
Slaine might not that surprising, but at least Mills was giving it a try
I see Tharg give us thrills of such different style, tones and hue
He's really saying Earthets I love you.

We'll hear some Squaxx dek Thargo crying, its always so
Aside from Slaine what's wrong with this Prog, I'll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful Prog
Oh Yes I think to myself what a Zarjaz Prog

It’s got pluses and minuses.

Lovely little Edmund Bagwell nod in the opening page of Indigo Prime too - an "Image Magician" indeed.

Not sure if this should go in the Prog thread or the Meg thread (but that hasn’t been started yet)...anyway...

In the Nerve Centre Tharg describes the latest floppy as “The Complete Helium”.

Does that mean it’s not coming back? I didn’t think what was published was it. If it is, it puts a different take on the ending: I had taken it as a cliff-hanger, not that Constable Hodge and the others were killed.

Also (and I haven’t read it again yet), but weren’t there a load of outstanding questions, not least how did the world come to be the way it is?

From the Nerve Centre I did get the impression that's it, but I think Thrag said there would be more back in the day (not read it since publication so could be wrong).

Shame as I really enjoyed it, but if you look at what the creators involved have on, might be fair to call it a day and allow them to focus on other strips.
