A quick reminder that certain words remain verboten, even if under spoiler tags ;)

Oops! Sorry there  :-X
Maybe a Mod can change it to see you next tuesday;)

*I think...

ISTR that story was actually that Richard Burton said those words to Andy Diggle on his arrival at the 2000AD offices and that Andy had to restrain himself from shouting back: "No, it's fucking not!"

I could have sworn there was a story involving a very ill Mark Harrison, and Durham Red artwork...
Then again, this might be when he called someone's Mum a ****:|

Agree with everything said in that spoiler. And then some. Actually disrespectful. Sorry.

Agreed, so far at least. If this had come maybe 2 progs after her 'death' I'd have welcomed it with open arms.
As it stands, I'm feeling a bit hoodwinked.


Still, could be worse. This 'big secret' could have been something Skip Tracer related.
Still, Simon Fraser back in the prog, and it was a good read.
Still, as the mighty Bish-Op once said* 'It's only a fucking comic!'


*I think...  :-\

It'd have to be brand new scans of the original artwork for me to pick this up again, but that'll never happen  :(

Well, this ReGened prog was another hit for me  :thumbsup: (for my full review, read Mikey's post  :))
Waiting an extra week for the next installments of current thrills? Fine by me. I wait a month for the next episodes in the Meg, and that's fine too.

Yeah, maybe the art styles could have been a little more diverse, but all the stories still looked fantastic, and the storytelling on show works really well. Maybe throw some work Anthony William's way, he's be a good fit for this kind of thing.

I'd be more than happy to have one in four progs be a ReGened - (appreciate I'm probably alone there though, if this thread and farcebook are anything to go by!  :-\)

Got an HTC Vive myself, and yeah the cables and suchlike are a bit of a nuisance. BUT...

...it's fucking amazing!
I'm currently enjoying The Lab from Valve - as with most of the best VR it's essentially a bunch of tech demos, but bloody good ones. Very much recommended.

Moss is a beautiful platformer that has been developed just for VR, where you control a mouse who has a sword. Very much recommended.

Google Earth goes without saying. Not brilliant, but bloody good.

And the Nvidia Funhouse is OK too, but again is essentially a tech demo.

Things that you think would work perfectly, like Skyrim and Fallout, actually tend to be a bit shonky IMO.

Niemand's best Dredd so far, and considering all his others are sublime then thats saying something!
He's a keeper, Tharg...

Just noticed an art cock-up in this weeks Dredd... I'll not say what it is though  ;)

...to the exploration of America's gay panic that powered the original Nightmare On Elm Street.

Nightmare On Elm Street Part 2, surely?
Not sure that idea holds up for part 1...  :-\

Great proggage, just great. Primary thought: Lynch's art coloured by Boswell is an absolute joy

Good god yes! Lynch and Boswell work so well together, more please Tharg!

Since the Art Comp has gone a bit ‘mainstream’ I can’t really get into it. Which is a shame. That’s just me, of course.

I know what you mean. Just harder to work up enthusiasm.

Ditto.
Still, the Mighty CFM can do no wrong in my book - surely a KTT is in order?

Just received the most recent delivery for me (Slaine and Stront - no idea how behind I am!) and they were in the recyclable bag. *Slight* corner damage, but nothing I care about.

Just to ask, but are squished corners really such a problem? If you're planning to re-sell them then definately, but for the completionist who will never sell them (myself *cough*) is it really such a big deal?

Sorry if this seems a bit blase, I'm just curious as to others feelings on this....

But please no more Tracey Skipper, even the mighty Macneil couldn't save that one!

I'm full of love for Proteus Vex, but mainly due to the Flint droid's art.
Totally agree that a character can be unexplained and still work (Shakara, Nemesis), but I'd still like an episode that gives us a better idea of Vex themselves.

That said, I trust in the Carroll droid to deliver the goods!

Prog's on fire at the moment.
Bagsy Grennie as Kenneth Neimand! ;)
