Hershey was there.

Judge Ocks lost an arm in Shanty Town, and then was next seen in Gordon Rennie and Charlie Adlard's Gulag in progs 1382-1386, when he was killed by the Sovs.

Someone please change the title of this thread to Prog 2045 - Apocalypse Then! The actual tagline - this long thing is driving me buggie for some reason!*

*Well actually I know part of the reason is I still childishly really hold onto the idea that the Prog Thread shouldn't be started until someone has actually - you know -  read the Prog and can provide a review rather than just having seen a picture of the cover somewhere.

If you must start it early at least bloomin' start it right!

Okay, okay I'll stop being a petulant nerdish child... until next time that is!

Statues were erected in their honour and placed in public parks. Beautiful statues.

It's a tradition.

A tradition?  You mean like fox-hunting, slavery and prostitution?

Yes. Exactly like that. FFS.

Might start the Prog 2745 thread now as I can currently see some trees which could potentially be pulped to make the paper.

I'm wondering if it's pure coincidence to see this tale in 2[0]45 given the Apocalypse War started in 245. Like to think Tharg plans this kinda stuff.

Tharg plans all!  (If not, that's a neat coincidence.  Wasn;t sure how Dan's style would transpose into MC1, but he does a grand job!  Interesting that all the other Apocalypse Squad members are out of the Department - Hamble looks like he took a bad trip somewhere along the line!

I'm very interested to see where that Dredd is going.

But my favourite story in the prog right now is Hope, which is brilliantly written and brilliantly drawn. I do t know how it will end, but if the ending leaves room for a sequel then I really hope there is one.

There's a promising 3riller written by Gordon Rennie and Lawrence Rennie -- son? Brother? Husband? The plot thickens!
