Always meant to pick up this series on Blu-ray, but never seen it going cheap enough.
Still though, seems there's a forthcoming re-release in October.
Yours to pre-order for only 8 million nicker on Zavvi;

8. Nemesis - The Shape of Things to Come... alas that's actually years of teasing stories about hammers as I recall


I got such kick out of that Prog- Nemesis returns (in full colour) with a cracking cover and absolutely out of the blue.
Then nuthin for 3 more years!

Its an okay story, but sets up something that never really got played with - the idea that all the hate and
 vitriol in Termight would led to its own downfall... and a hammer.... there's another short story in the 900s? Then we have to wait for Book X - which moves things in a different direction... oh my memory could be so wrong there!

You're not wrong Colin, another 'teaser' to the final confrontation appeared in Progs 901-903, with some grotesque but brilliant Clint Langley painted art.
Then on to the main event in Book X several years later, which despite featuring some astonishing artwork, fell a bit flat for me too.

Did the line 'Irish pies are smiling' get used anywhere?

Sure t'was the name of the story.

Next week's Armoured Gideon cover by Kei Zama looks the business, but its a missed opportunity that the Jacob Droid wasn't reactivated to draw it.

Armoured Gideon, was this ever collected ? I remember the series but I cannot remember the premises or anything about the story (only the art)

Two reprints, but I'm pretty sure that they don't include the entire series;

A complete collected edition would be great, but I don't think it's a popular enough Thrill.

Art was absolutely wonderful.
I'm the proud owner of this Simon Jacob piece;

Apologies regarding the spoiler omission there...don't go all Armoured Jerubaal* on me chums!

*Whilst Googling the correct spelling of Armoured Jerubaal I ironically further self-spoiled the appearance of Armoured Gideon in The Order- the reveal image was on the same web page.

WTF is going on.

I haven't picked up Prog 2093, but man what a Sphinx's riddle of a thread...Paul Bunyan, Igor Goldkind, Armoured Gideon, Revere...

And I gather that Armoured Gideon isn't having a giant demonic mechanoid throw-down with Mechastopheles....

WTF is going on!

Damn. At least let me know which one of you had to eat the soggy biscuit.


Alas, Proudhuff never came through with the promised supply of blue pills.

I want a Star Trek version of Lovejoy, in which Picard wears a leather jacket and sells fake Vulcan oil paintings to gullible clients.

Underwhelmed by Dredd Under siege... what's the Dreddheads verdict?

An above average read so far.
"Mega Shitty 1" won me over in the first issue.

What, you aren't at the party?

You're such a feckin blabbermouth Sharky- we all agreed last Thursday that Bolt and Frank weren't invited.

A Ghost Story.

That one took me by surprise, one of the best films I watched last year.
Was thinking about it for a good while afterwards too.

That's not to say that Dredd couldn't be paired up with a robotic companion, doesn't necessarily have to be a comedy foil, could be a Mechanismo droid.

Also, ex-boarder Richard McAuliffe has a story in it!

A good omen- I've read some of his horror work previously and quite enjoyed it.

Great cover by Hotz, he has such an instantly recognizable style.
The man is destined to draw Nemesis the Warlock someday.

Hope the 2018 Scream / Misty special has a bit more bite than the first one did.
