I'm assuming "ruptured appendix" is code for Rigellian Hotshot following letting celebrations for the "Not Wagner" writers competition win interrupt the Thrill production - let this be a lesson for all droids! More  seriously, hope you get well soon!

I think it was a shame when they stopped using living peoples faces and politicised the whole thing - what was wrong with the common vote for whose face got used?

Diaboliks and The Out keep me thrlled - FTB did a bit of a drop this week due to not really following everyones motives here - Black Dog would want to destry that torc rather than let it fall back to the Knights? The Knights would really need to help Ifan get it? 

I await the Order Primer with baitededness TB!

Dredd, well lovely art and all that, but more silly that isnt endearing me to this any - shame Anderson didn't telekinetically do for the Chaos Bug, or Block Mania for that matter - the answer I am presuming is this is a "magical" disease... OK then.... :/

Catching up on the bits of the starlordathon I slept through - that 1980 Annual is rough! Glad you didnt end on it...

Is this the place to put out Starlord Spinnie nominations?  Badgies?

It is true that the comments here and *brrr*  elsewhere... on the internet are a fraction of the readership, but it isnt like Tharg gets hundreds of letters and emails a week (if he does very few of them appear fit for publication) and it must be 15(?) years since we had an actual readership survey (seem to recall at least one Rebellion era reader survey?).

So wile it might be Skip Tracer et al are well loved strips elsewhere, how is this being communicated to Tharg

AlexF I think the people walking this forum is just a small footprint of readers and what the forum likes is not necessary what the general reader likes. Take for example the much "loved forum favorite"  Skip Tracer and we still getting this by the dozens.  So what we who post here like might be different out there. But I thing does not matter who you are you have to keep your wits reading The Order. I hope it gets collected in a whole since I would like one-day to read it in single sitting. I might be one of the few who likes The Order (and Skip Tracer). I like the historical "facts" and how the history has been altered.

Yeah, not a fan of Skip Tracer and the continued use of song/album titles really is a way to make me double down on it - It seems about as generic as you can get, with added magically powered hero magically negotiating their way through plots powered by magical macguffinery.  If it felt like that was all a route to something new or some critique of that I gues sit might be worht it, but this many series in, I'm not holding out much hope for that - more Leigh Gallgher and Pat will work for me  I'm sure!

Tharg’s obviously a fan of Skip Tracer. I guess it needs a re-read, but I’ve found it pretty by-the-numbers and bland so far—certainly not the kind of strip that I’d imagined would get such regular outings.

Started at 12, so should end at 12?  Been a blast - can't wait to catch up with the bits I missed due to sleeping!

The faces don't sow any trace of Robin Smith, but the glove and Dredds padding etc are totally Robin Smith - I'm presuming he took Cams art nad had a bodge at the lower bits to make the image work as he imagined it?

If it was just the second appearance, that would be one thing, but with the Action Special, thats a third appearance this year.

Judge Dredd - HE IS THE LAW! (of diminiishing returns)

Is their any Rebellion comic that character DOESN'T appear in? #Dredd

Dredd will eat itself

Full tilt has a bit of a talky episode here and I'd have reconfigured the cliffhanger to not take the sting out if it, but enjoying it for all its odd pacing at times

Diaboliks feels like it is deliberately setting itself in the same world as Dr Sin, let alone Caballistics -this is a good thing.

The Order I have lost track of too far past, so no ready until such time as I eer get to a reread

The Out swerves from where it might have one, with hume 2 mainly there to help give Cyd a push in a direction that otherwise (and kinds still does) feel a bit plot driven rather than character driven - but can't complain as where it is going should be interesting stuff.

.... his frequent appearances on Will Wheaton's Tabletop show ...

Aha  - not an avid watcher of Will Wheatons thing, but wondered why he was familiar to me when I haaven't seen any of the shows reported in his obituary.  Yeah - seemed like a really nice guy and what an age to go
