Looks promising!

I've now read the whole issue, and none of the stories disappointed. Hookjaw was was just right. Hellmann has the perfect choice of creators: the original series artist, and Garth Ennis, who knows how to tell a war story. I didn't have any problem with the Dredger story (except the lettering!). Hell Machine, as I've said, is brilliant and possibly my favourite, but maybe jointly with Hellman. Kids Rule OK was my least favourite because there wasn't really a story, but it was okay, and the artist is excellent (Henrik Sahlström). In fact, all of the artists did a great job. Jake Lynch did a fantastic impression of Henry Flint, and I wouldn't have known if they hadn't told us. Mike Dorey should do the next Rogue Trooper story. I'd like to see more from Dan Lish too. And I liked the last panel on page five of Dredger.

Hope to see another of these next year.

The banned issue bagged with the online purchase is a nice touch, a piece of comics history. Saving it for the weekend.

Asterix was brilliant!

Maybe as a tribute Rebellion could reprint in the floppy the spoof Asterix strip that appeared in one of the Crisis specials.

Hell Machine is a mental story! I'd like to see this continued in the prog.

Perfectly good ending for Feral and Foe. If it never comes back, it was a good stand-alone series. But I wouldn't mind if it came back with new characters. The world the writer has built is strong enough to support a new cast. I'd be less happy if the people who apparently died turned out not to be dead after all, or came back from the dead.

Michael Carroll bought Dredd some extra time with his story The Carousel a couple of years ago, in which Dredd has regular rejuvenation surgery. But that's just a sticking plaster solution in the long run. I think that finally addressing this issue properly could make a good story, in the right hands.

To be fair, CF 4 is also a strong contender.

Fungus is in the next volume. But nobody needs a "trigger warning;" life is triggering, get used to it.

That is definitely a great collection of stories, and if I was recommending a place for a new reader to start it might be that volume.

The best arguments against Brexit were always that Brussels is less incompetent and less heartless than Westminster. </Brexit>

Phone them, they're very good at sorting out that kind of thing.

I like Feral and Foe. If it wasn't for the swearing it would work very well as an "all ages" story.

It's not just you, I feel the same about the story and the art. I didn't even buy volume 5.
