Happy anniversary! I'm almost caught up, now, (just the latest episode to listen to) and I've loved them all. I'm giving these podcasts a rating of 7.5/7.5! Here's to the next year's worth of thrillage!

No collection again this week. I am not moaning as I can see Conrad put's an immense amount of work into this (the show itself, the Cradeline page, the Twitter feed, possible more) but these podcasts, along with the digital prog on Wednesday, have become highlights of my dreary week so I do watch out for them and get a bit disappointed when ther is a no-show.

Any chance of a Verdus Robo Hunter collection in the near future? I expect Flesh is a given

I may or may not be almost possibly responsible for this maybe.

Still loving the show and now I'm up to date with the weekly podcast it now comes with added anticipation! Its like reading the Progs all over again!

So in the latest (May 1981) you mention thinking that there was a James Bond scene with ice yachts fight is it possible this is being conflated with the ice yacht type thingie in Barbarella? Actually who knows as I might be misremembering that as well? Its been an age since I've seen that movie.

As for Return to Armageddon I completely see where you are coming from about the ending. The strip was always more about the journey than the destination, but in a way that makes it (the ending) work all the more. It reminds the reader that for all the batshit crazy stuff that led there this was still a sci-fi/fantasy story in a boys comic and all the wonderful stuff you had before plays out in wonderful juxapostion to the more traditional ending sequence.

That said even the end is stil kinda a little off kilter, you have nice reminders of what's gone before, as you say Seeker remains one of 2000ad great characters, though alas he appears less at the end. Also Amtrack while playing more of a typical hero role is still pretty bumbling until right at the end. He's always getting rescued and captured and what not. A nice gentle reminder that this is not the normal and while I do think the end is weaker than whats gone before seen as a whole for me it kinda works in its own wonky way.

Keep up the excellent work, I'm almost as excited as you are about some of the things that you'll be talking about soon. Still my favourite podcast out there and thanks for the continued efforts.

So, RTA is something a bit special for me still. Like, I'm not going to go out and hate something that clearly was astounding. I play a lot of games and almost all endings are never that satisfying, especially horror. Amtrak was this character I felt had something to gain from being put into this position where he is in constant pain and being treated like dirt, and eventually has to confront in some way the horrors of how he was treated by human beings.

This is ultimately what made me unhappy about it. I didn't expect him to be jaded, but I did expect that there would be some questioning of that experience, and if he truly should save them. Have his counterpart give him this conundrum and, as Amtrak appears to be turning evil, reveal that he's actually just using it to get close and stop this whole thing from happening. That string never got plucked and I feel it was a missed opportunity.

Happy anniversary! I'm almost caught up, now, (just the latest episode to listen to) and I've loved them all. I'm giving these podcasts a rating of 7.5/7.5! Here's to the next year's worth of thrillage!

Thanks for the love!

Oh I'm looking forward to my journey to work tomorrow accompanied by your thoughts on Nemesis.

I do however have another point to make. Are you in trouble, does someone disapprove of you recording your podcast. Do you have sensitive neighbours sicked by your depraved enjoyment of this sick British comic?

The reason I ask is the wrap around bits of the Flesh 'Trade' seemed like you were desperately keeping your voice down. As if recording under your duvet by touch light after your bedtime desperate that your Mum didn't catch you! It sounds clear and fine BUT hushed.

The third quarter of 1981 has at least one historic storyline or thrill premiere, it's insane.
July: Nemesis arrives full time/end of portrait of a mutant
August: Judge Death Lives
September: Rogue Trooper premieres
BONUS MONTH
October: Ace Trucking premiers/The Hot Dog Run/Start of Block Mania (just one issue)

It's not until November or December that we'll really slow down with new and history stuff. It's a good era for podcast, but a tough one once we finally get to the 81 Spinnies and have to figure out the best one!

Haha! I do tend to speak a little quieter when it's just me, there's just something about talking to myself that makes me get a little self conscious :D It's a good point though, will try to be louder and prouder for the upcoming Robo-Hunter, Strontium Dog (Journey to Hell), Harlem Heroes, and the ultra-secret-mega collection that I'll be putting out over the next week or two before Thursdays turn into Special and Annuals day!

Don't worry - the Warlock's genitals are on display, it will just take a decade or two before Pat feels confortable enough to be explicit about it..... !

What a run of progs though! You have to give Mean Arena its dues, as it stops complete thrill circuit meltdown as we build up to the next level thrills once Rogue and Ace turn up!
