'Put the cat amongst the pigeons' is indeed an expression that is similar to 'throw a spanner in the works'. Here is an excellent usage of this phase from Billy The Fish: https://youtu.be/eHgJW8q8BrY?t=255

I haven't read any Armitage but from his cameo appearence in Dredd I had got the impression he was more Inspector Morse in Brit Cit rather than Dredd in Brit Cit. I am reading along with Space Spinner 2000 and think we will get to Armatage soon so I will find out for myself.

The Wagner Dredd is an odd one. A typically terse and smart Wagner strip, and the art is broadly very, very good. But we for some reason appear to be in a place where Beeny is the only woman in the justice department. Every other street judge, every member of Control, and even Citi-Def: all men—and almost all (depending on a couple of frames where there might be one non-white man) white men. I know I bang on about this a lot, but, please, art droids, write a little note or something to remind you to draw beyond what’s in the mirror.

This is a very good point that is very well expressed. Has anyone ever put this to Tharg in the Nerve Centre? I'd be interested to see what his response would be.

I think Skip Tracer is good, and I am enjoying this latest outing.

Me too - I like seeing Dave Gibbons on podcasts - he was great on the 2000ad one a while back too. He seems quite relaxed in front of the camera and I like it that he is still enthusiastic about comics after all these years.

Nice one Eammon and John. I don't think the novels get the attention they deserve but they are good, especially the ones set long before the comic continuity like this, Judges and Year 1, 2. Michael Carroll's name on the cover is practically a mark of quality too.

This one. In the coffee table book of Dredd covers, a 2000AD art droid says about this cover 'there is nothinhg about this image that isn't perfect'
