Sorry guys, missed out a number...

 But this month I find the perfect storm of stories I like!

I love Dredd's story and the reintroduction of our favourite gorilla judge Heston. That panel with the giant footprint in particular gave me chills. I also liked the shout out to a previous Judge Anderson story with the giant ape.

Lawless had been an okay story with a solid storyline and good art but this months instalment with the cathartic experience between Nerys and Hetch was very moving.

Devlin Waugh sometimes goes over my head with its obscure references to the occult, but this months episode was light on this and more centred on the two brothers' backstory coupled with a prolonged fight scene.

Cursed Earth Koburn: What else is there to say? It's Carlos Freakin' Ezquerra up to his usual high standard, and a great opening episode that hopefully starts another good story for his unconventional character.

Which takes us to Dredd vs Death. I had qualms about the introduction of such a supernatural entity into this version of Dredd's multiverse but this opening episode story along with Flint's excellently dark artwork dispelled those doubts. I don't want to spoil it but the last page is absolutely brilliant.

Well done guys.

All of this ^^^^

And even I am liking the D'eath story, Flint work is stunning but doesn't detract but adds to the gloom and menace, something the painterly work of Deadworld has been missing (IMHO), I'm hoping the GRennie droid is kind over the takeover of CE Coburn stories and has given this his blessing.

Definitely worth a go - the phrase "gentle comedy" is usually a TV euphemism for "not funny" but this is warm touching and beautifully observed. Toby Jones is outstanding

Everyone in it is pretty awesome, but Jones is the standout; Lance is just a great character and Jones plays the role beautifully and naturally.

And yeah, "gentle" is often bandied around as a negative, and it has been cruelly described as "Last Of The Summer Wine for Millennials", but they're just mean people, and not every comedy needs tragedy, snark or bitterness.

It's true that it isn't exactly a gag-a-minute like Father Ted or whatever, but it's just great and I don't like anyone who disagrees.

That sounds so like my favourite: 'Early Doors' a great gentle comedy.

I don't listen to much radio, usually only R4XTRA, don't take cabs, hardly use the interweb (just this place and a few others), stopped reading newspapers and magazines years ago, live in a shed and work on a farm. Apart from the odd cinema visit, which happens on fewer than twelve occasions in a year, I'm probably just about as ad-free as it's possible to get without sawing my own head off.

and then there's the Prog but that doesn't count!  :D

Wasn't Charles Manson the first to claim the Beatles were the Four Dark Judges, or am I misremembering?

HNY folks....
Brass tacks.

Cover: big robots SMASH! What's not to like?

Dredd: Not sure where TB has read this before, but I'm enjoying the whole trip, and hoping there will be a big bang at the end storywise. Artwork is top notch as always from this droid.


Savage: with one mighty bound he was free...


Brass Sun: liking this and the feeling that this is an opening gambit of the final chess match add an extra frisson of excitement.

ABC Warriors: I like the '10 million other likes', however it really shouldn't be the hook for a whole story.

Bad Company: I feel this is the waste of two great talents, not sure what to make of this, as the original seemed to have nailed the coffin lid on these guys, and resurrecting them was a misstep IMHO.

Now back to work all of you  :D
