I think this year was a very special year for screwing up advance planning.  Almost every time a what is coming was published only about three quarters of it was actually released at the planned time. I am glad I do not need to try to set these schedules and do the planning.

If you talk about your forum username, I do not think you can. Maybe an admin can help with that

Dredd – Dredd is where he should be handing out justice on the streets. He is again starting to question himself. We also have some board-room stuff going on which most likely will drive the story.   When was the last time we saw Boo cook in the prog (his last work was for the meg on Blunt)

Future Shock – It started as a very generic shock but ended in an interesting twist. It is maybe time that Tharg gives Rory McConville a bigger jab at a more substantial story than all these once-offs.

Hook Jaw – I did not see this coming, I expected something completely different.  It is great to see Rebellion is preparing to use their acquisitions.  Let us see how this series unfolds.  Leigh’s art is always a great plus in the prog, he is one of my favourite artists.  Last point is maybe this opens the door for a return of certain polar beast to return to the fold as well.

Sin/Dex – After last week shocking ending I tough this could not go worse for the duo. How wrong was I.  The ending was a total surprise, wrapped around a panel by panel action-fest.

Skip Tracer – I enjoyed the previous series of Skip but this one is not really tingling my interest that much but let us see where this leads too.

Stickleback – Great to see this return after so many years.  Edginton and D’Isreali (just loves his B/W art here) sure knows how to deliver. This is a more a catch-up episode but after so many years we needed this.

Overall, the jump-on-prog did deliver in a solid way. Two surprises for me with only one slight disappointment. We do not always know the intrigues and issues to get the prog delivered in this trying times. Great jump-on point Tharg.

I am looking forward to the return of Fiends, next weeks new story looks quite interesting.

Heh, I was just about to say Campbell is an established 2000AD artist - DeMarco!  Synnamon! Bison! BREATHING SPACE!  ... Before I realised most of that was more than 15 years old!  Be great to see him back.

Yes, I can remember Breathing Space and the art was good.

The xmas cover does look like it could be Cliff Robinson (the king of covers)

On 2000AD website there is an article related to what is coming this December:


I just noticed that accordingly the article Slaine will be in prog 2210 and 2211 which I think is not going to happen. Then Constanta is scheduled to start in the xmas prog which I also do not think is going to happen since Constanta will start in prog 2201.

Elsewhere in a small haul Strange Adventures 5 see the series continue to intrigue and infuriate in almost equal measure. Things move on but I don't feel like I've learnt anything more.

I don't think this is going to match Mister Miracle or The Vision, but I'm still optimistic this story is going to develop in interesting and unexpected ways (beyond the obvious war crimes/Strange as dupe angles).

They don't need to jumble the timeline as much, though. Or they need to do it better.

I struggled with Mister Miracle is just felt mew the whole time. The later part of the story was much better but again this could have been told in a max of about 2 - 3 issues (very similar to his Heroes in Crisis overlong and just not getting to the point). I can always recommend Alan Moore's Future Shocks too the American comics writers on howto write a story under 5 pages.
