Prog / Re: Prog 2215: Fire From Above

Not enjoying my prog, save for Vex. The reasons have been articulated in the last few prog threads by various forumites.

But that's the joy of it. New strips soon enough.

Does anyone have an ETA on the special collection of The Stainless Steel Rat.

I wants it, I does.

Be great if it had the covers in it. In colour. (A squaxx can dream).

EDIT: I know it's October-ish. I was meaning an ETA on when you can order.

Dunno what happened there. I was going to say...

The Dredd art is terrible. It looks like it was done by a 15 year old art student in my eyes. The Dredd in the opening panel is a good example. It feels blocky and unsuited to a comic strip.

Some of the textures look like crayon, but I geuss it's paint. Some panels (eg the second on page 1, with the building in the background) feel rushed and unfinished.

I get this is a style. I get that not everyone will like it, but I fear it looks amateurish and puts off casual readers. I know it isn't. I know Will Simpson is an experienced artist.

So, it's just not for me. It's not helped by an action orientated strip (page three has a Yaaah!, Guk!, Gaah! and Aaah! across it). This, and the art, makes the whole story feel childish to me.

The second is that you’ll probably want to see it because of this review, only to realise I’m right

A little, yes.  I think I need context.  What do you think of Nolan's other films?

Loved all of them.

Tenet

Sweet Jesus. Avoid. Avoid like leprosy. Don’t even start it in the hope it cannot be “that bad”.

It’s worse. This is a bad future shock which with a $100m budget.

This is incomprehensible pish, made worse by its own belief that it is clever. It’s the rabid gibberings of a first year physics student.

And if that wasn’t enough for you, the sound edit is terrible. You can’t make out half the dialogue.

The first irony is that it’s a waste of time.

The second is that you’ll probably want to see it because of this review, only to realise I’m right
