Frankly, if this doesn't get addressed in the comic i'm going to be disappointed.
Maybe Mortis decays them for a laugh?

Covers awesome, but when did Judge Death start wearing boots?

Death's a cross dresser and they're kinky boots that he wears at the weekends!!!

This prog is more of the same in a good way. The prog is well balanced with a strip for everyone.

I do not mind that a story takes a little more time to developed like Skip Tracer.

The Dredd story for me is great and I like the jump between the current and the previous.

Durham Red the art is one of the highlights and is some of the best work Ben has produced. The remake works for me

There is also a letters page. Couldn’t disagree more with one the plea to end Strontium Dog and Sinister Dexter.

Typical - I actually think Sinister Dexter and Strontium Dog are the best they've been for years!


Sinister Dexter is one of those stories which I do find to be either hot or cold. I will always read it but it feels like it is going nowhere. I know lot of people enjoy it but if it stops now I will not miss it. Strontium Dog with Wagner writing and Ezquerra on art duty is something that should grace the pages of the Prog more

I agree. I know its fashionable to bash the prog but I think as an anthology it has a really solid mix of art styles and writing. I like Survival Geeks and think its really well executed. It always helps when Dredd is on fire (and it is) but really good all round.

It's early days for Death here - for all we know he's still wearing Y-fronts and a vest under there. Presumably the dead fluids will toughen up his feet over time and give him those delightful toenails!


Er yes - didn't want to say but a more appropriate question is when he stopped wearing boots.

Frankly, if this doesn't get addressed in the comic i'm going to be disappointed.

A Question of (Dark) Judgement.

Sidney De'ath has a crisis of confidence, and wonders if his plan to kill every living thing is the right thing.

He turns to his mentor Judge Morphy who advises not wearing boots at all.

"By Grud my feet were stinking to high heaven, while also stepping on Lego -  I didn't worry if killing every single thing was right or not"

There you go.

Nothing anyone else can say will be as funny and clever. Can a moderator lock the thread, and maybe pin it as an example to others?

Death never wears boots. This is a residual of an imprint of Prog 2079. Hail to the king Mick McMahon

For me one of the strengths of Sinister Dexter is they can do individual tales which don’t have to be part of a wider story, or which have only a small part of a wider story. Or they can do bigger arcs.

It’s actually the same with Dredd and Stront....

You make a valid point, but my problem is not the script (Dan Abnett is a very talented writer). I just can’t seem to really like the main characters.  This run of Sin/Dex I enjoyed more than previous run. I did not like Deadworld when it started but maybe Sin/Dex will grow on me. Since AD is an anthology their might be a strip or two which you do not like. Having multiple stories is both a strength and a weakness.

You are perfectly entitled to not like the characters and to be fair Dexter has always come across to me as a not particularly well developed character, especially considering how long the strip has been running. And certainly in comparison to Finnigan.


But it’s a different thing to the story not going anywhere.....just saying.

Where is Sin/Dex going ? I am not sure. Maybe I am unfair to sate that it is going nowhere.

So another great prog, Deadworld maybe sneaks TOP THRILL this week just for having Death in it

Excellent storytelling in both Dredd and Durham Red. In fact I can't work out if it's a better Red than Dredd

I'm here all week folks

Survival Geeks - that's a giant butt plug that Simon descends on, isn't it? Maybe someone more familiar with butt plugs than me can confirm this.

Got a feeling that Simon's strange pose in the next frame is some sort of comment on Adric's unfortunate reveal while in the Master's web in Castrovalva, but frankly the thought is too horrible to contemplate.

Skip Tracer. I'm sort of hoping, fancifully I suspect, that this is going to explode into some kind of bizarre John Smith style headf**k of a story. But that last panel is such a load of bull.

I thangew.
