Really quite shocked at the vitriol levelled at the Dredd art!  :o

In my 40 years plus of reading the comic I've seen better and I've certainly seen worse.

Can't see what the big deal is. :-\

I feel the same - didn't really jump out at me, but there's been worse published in the GG.  Quite like the Rogue Cephalopods on the first page...

Dredd: Not keen on the artwork I'm sorry to say, a lot of it makes me think of that horrid IDW Dredd, and Dredd kind of looks like a bulldog chewing a wasp. on the positive side there is a fine collection of VP, so often the downfall of new artists on Dredd.

Vive President?  Visible Panties?  Virtual Processor?  Verb Phrase?  Variegate Porphyria?

I miss the robot faced dude from the pilot whose head would flash the words "RED ALERT" on his face during an emergency. 

I was completely expecting something more like this:

Loved Sean's Show (and is it possible to read or write those two words without the tune Seanie's Show entering the head?) and saddened that the coverage didn't mention it more, as it's what he would have have liked his legacy to be, rather than 'team captain, nmtb'.  Sobering that he'd have been in a hospital I passed on my way home from work (and that I've also spent a few weeks in).

Judge Wagner was part of the Class of '79. As was Judge Gibson, though I don't know if the latter is named after Ian.

Pretty sure Judge Gibson's appearance (on the honour roll at the Academy of Law) was illustrated by Ian, so I'd say yes.

Off Topic / Re: What's your avatar all about then?
« on: 15 October, 2017, 08:54:01 pm »
I chose this avatar because I feel it instantly makes certain things clear to other forum members

1) That my wife is not the issue
2) That your revolution is over and the bums lost
3) That everytime a rug is micturated upon in this fair city I will not be compensating the owner
4) That I'm no fucking dipshit with a nine toed woman.

How does it make those things clear (instantly or otherwise)?

Wolfie Smith was boring. It made Tharg's list of the 16 worst strips to appear in 2000AD.

Was that during the nineties, in the midst of the insult-everything-that-went-before phase while not offering much decent material to replace it (including the infamous - "comics are just disposable entertainment, don't look for any deeper meaning or subtext, if you're mature enough to want anything more, then stop reading now" reply to a reader's letter)?

It's a good idea! It's weird, no 2000 AD Comp Art in the same month of the Inktober!
Going along the Inktober route, here's the prompt list:

Awful lingerie aside, surely that's the Mimesis?

Well, yes. I'm not referring to the (frankly not that impressive) take on the mimesis. I'm talking about the hostage ins weird porno pose, the awful lifework, the terrible colours, and the fact the inside of that issue didn't even feature that strip.

Not to mention the sticky-looking white liquid oozing on to said lingerie-clad model...

And what's with replacing the great Nem logo with that?

probably because a new series of it will be starting soon and people may need a refresher?
There is? Must have fallen out of my brain. Well, in that case: good.

Pretty sure I'd have remembered that if I'd seen an announcement somewhere -  good news - let's hope this bodes well for Edgingtonverse tales continuing after being in limbo for  years...

You’re missing inferno/purgatory and Helter Skelter too, though many folk round here aren’t keen on either. I like ‘em, though, some fine Carlos art on both.

Inferno has Psi-Judge Janus in it and she rewrote her time-line at the end of her Faustus storyline (or everything she did was just a daydream she was having in a break room or something), thus making it entirely possible that she erased Inferno from history in the process (or it was all a dream or something).

If only we could erase it from history...

New BC means more Rufus art, so I'm fine with that.

I mean, no doubt. But something new, or a sequel to Counterfit Girl would be more exciting imo

I'd much prefer new Counterfeit Girl to BC that doesn't deliver on what was promised (if you haven't written an explanation of how people come back to life on a planet that blew up - don't say you have in the podcast (unless that explanation actually appears in the upcoming story?)

It was a great idea to keep the love going for the 2012 movie, but ultimately has ended up feeling a bit flat.
That said, I can't wait to see how the Dark Judges will be handled!*

*(With care, hopefully...  ;))

Better than IDW, hopefully...

It was a good opener. Hitler if fucking metal?! \m/ When Hitler threw the devil horns I was eating and choked I was laughing so hard. The Happy Wanderer section was priceless.

I think this could be a very, very good series.

He reminded me of Hitler from Preacher...
