Prog 2102 continues to be stellar. Dredd & Brink are A*, although I’m sure some would find Brink too talky.
Skip Tracer has never looked better and has a real House of Daemon feel. Kingdom is old school thrills. Fiends feels cinematic - Dave Taylor is a master of atmosphere. Truely this run of progs is up there with the best for me. May the Second Golden Age of 2000ad continue...

Question about Dredd The Small House Part 2


When Judge Smiley reminds Dredd of the high body count of his friends is he implying Hershey needs to be assassinated? Because she puts the city at risk? Is he testing Dredd’s loyalty? Apologies if this is blindingly obvious to other prog readers.  Another stunningly good issue!

Please help me with Anderson. I like the art but confused by the third page. Is the initial skysurfing perp killed by a single whack to the head meant for Anderson? She calls in a Death but he doesn’t look too dead behind her. It’s not like half his head’s missing or anything! Great art & colouring though, more from de la Cruz please Tharg?!

Good point bernardsfingers!
The Premium figures are lovely things, especially the Nemesis the Warlock statue. The are painted well and have a bit of weight to them. Here's to the Halo Jones figure coming next!

I'd love to see Ian Gibson do covers for further collected reprints & maybe a few images of Halo's possible futures. He's a definitive 2000ad artist and a singular talent.

Was it the potty mouth issue of Frank Miller's All Star Batman that had blacked out all the swearing but it was still quite legible? I quite liked the 'redacted' curse-words look. Having chatted at length to Culbard at Thought Bubble I was excited to read Brink Season 3, its the perfect distillation of Lovecraft, Sci-fi and True Detective. The deceptively minimal art and lurid colours are just amazing.

I'd stick to messenger - it seems to work. Log into your account on hachette website and you should be able to see if you've been Premium all this time - its an extra £1.50 per book. Send them a screen grab with your subscription number. I can't iterate enough that calling or email doesn't seem to work. I've had both figures replaced in about 2 weeks. all the best.

This might be the best prog ever. It’s embarassingly good. I’m too excited by a Dredd mega story by Flint & co. I’m so glad to see the distinctive Brink back and more disturbing than ever! Tharg is truely generous!

I’ve stuck to messenger after one terrible phone call. I’ve always had books & breakages replaced pretty simply. I can only imagine how many different series/books/figurines/build-your-own-R2D2 type questions these guys have to deal with.

This is break-neck gibberish with beautiful art. I feel like I’m reading part 11 of a 12 part series. I don’t have time to engage with anyone. It’s absurdly dense. Zenith Phase iii (which this kind of resembles) works because we know and care about a couple of the characters. Go read ‘The Magic Order’ by Mark Millar and see how each character gets 3 pages to settle with the audience before the fireworks begin. I guess this might work better for people who know all the characters - are there any readers like that? I was delighted to see a certain SCREAM character. Let’s have more with a slower pace. Great art & good to see Dani on the back-up strip.

I’m guessing it’s the original scans that are bad, since all the more recent colour material looks fine.

Well done to everyone who made it to the finish. I’ve really enjoyed it especially the design, endpapers & text-pieces
