That was the only thing that did the episode in for me.  Visually the final panel was stunning but the text jarred a little.  Hard to put my finger on why ...

Sorry, is that the government's Brexit strategy slogan?

Anyway nothing quite like full internet access when in the lakes to remind you camping is a very different beast than it was in 1993!

If you've found somewhere to camp in the lakes with full internet access then you are definitely proving your case on the credibility issue.

The only question I haven't seen the answer to about the Parker Solar Probe though is 'are they still planning on landing the probe at night?'

Prog / Prog 2094 - The Order Meet The Edge - Walker

I'm not a massive fan of Armoured Gideon but the cover does do the character justice.  I think though that some of the comments about the prog being a bit of a mixed bag might be applicable again.  Dredd finishes off nicely and McConville has produced a serviceable script for Manco's artwork.

I'm in the 'not really feeling the current series of the Order' camp.  Burns' artwork is as sumptuous as ever but I'm not really sure what the hell is going on here.  Perhaps I need to go back and give it a re-read.  The 3rillers is another tale that has left me cold.  A cliched turn hasn't helped matters.  Maybe the final denouement will help change my mind.

Mechastopheles is another strip I'm hoping will shape up into something more than it is at the moment.  Richardson's artwork continues to serve well and there are some interesting ideas.  It's a bit exposition heavy but not OTT.

Grey Area shows Harrison's strengths and there's an interesting colour pallet in play.  The episode is a bit jarring as the story takes a dramatic turn to develop the plot.  Other than commenting that there are one or two elements that could be construed as cliched, it is probably best to say very, very little about events until the prog hits the shops.  All I will say is that for me, this is the other highlight of the prog.

Plenty of red pills though.

This is of course predicated on the assumption that these are in fact 'light bulbs'.  This is a common fallacy.  They are actually 'dark suckers', hoovering up any dark in the vicinity of the said devices.  Higher rated dark suckers are able to more rapidly remove any dark from a given location which is why areas seem brighter.  Obviously they have a limited capacity and once they become full are no longer able to suck dark.  This is clearly indicated by the big dark patch that appears to indicate the need for a new dark sucker.

Time slip to Defoe…

.... then side step to Torquemada.

Absolutely.  It is not 'replaced' at all.  More accurately, an operational lightbulb is substituted for a defunct lightbulb.

Unofficial but longstanding policy on prog review threads is that you shouldn't read them before you read the prog if you don't want spoilers.

Fair point but you would also have to extend that to the 'recent posts' thread since they would show up there too.  Providing you steer clear until you've got your prog you should be okay but it's an easy mistake to make.

This seems to happen every once in a while.  A couple of weeks with the prog turning up monday, tuesday or even wednesday.  Then things settle again.  A tad annoying but generally temporary.

Well, I was considering wether to look at planning for my attendance but I figured that since the date and venue had not been set yet I'd leave it for now.  I'll come back later once I've finished rearranging my shelves and see if there is anything firmer.  Well, maybe.

I guess that would depend on what sort of 'complete' set you were talking about.  If it included all of the badges, the free gifts in issue 2 & 3, the Summer Special and Annuals then maybe £150.  Usual condition caveats apply.

Complete set of Warrior is an interesting one.  Don't often see them about.  Plenty of individual issues going for between £2 and £10 depending on condition.  The last couple of issues tend to be slightly more scarce.  Possibly a set with the binder might command a slightly higher price, or a copy of the V for Vendetta single (which I've only ever seen listed once).
