Terrible news- absolutely stunned.

I just don't know what else to say.

Dear me, you must've been there to witness who laid hands on who first!

Personally, I would be extremely surprised to find that anybody other than a certain well known Fathead had started it.

4. The pyramid in Phase 1 isn't Chimera, but looks like her for some kind of mystical resonance reason that allows the Lloiger to interact with the dormant superhuman body.


That was my take too- or just a bit of window dressing (like there not being a need for a sacrifice, but making one of Doctor Driesch anyway). Take your pick.

Because it's not.

Ah well. Peyne/Chimera it is then.

This is the internet- you're doing it wrong. Can I suggest multiple POV photos of yourself handling objects in a clearly painful way, while claiming that this is how you always hold stuff?

;)

Anyway- that aside, it just doesn't read as being St. John to me and never will. To be honest, it makes even less sense to me than the Sunset Boulevard idea.

Sorry.

That last pic is a POV shot. Technically, the middle one is as well- but nobody would hold anything like that.

Hmmm... Except for the fact that it's obviously not a POV shot from St. John's own eyes. Sorry.

I must admit, I've never once even entertained the idea that it might be St. John who's narrating at the end and having just read it again (because you never know), I still don't.

I always assumed that Peyne became a part of Chimera (he mentions being part of something else), rather than just fading away to nothing- but it could just as easily be Peyne's 'spirit' (or whatever it is that Grant thinks happens to the mind after death of the body) narrating the story.

Why is it obviously not a POV shot?

I might even spend 100 quid on it.

I have to admit the caption "I am Peyne, or at least part of me is" does lend credence to your interpretation.

My take on it though is that the panel with the words "and I finally see what's it's holding" is a POV shot from St John's own eyes, looking at his own hands holding Chimera.

People tie themselves in all sorts of knots over what happens at the end of Phase IV, but it always seemed pretty straightforward to me: Peter St. John asks Chimera for help with Cloud 9/The Horus Group and Chimera obliges by absorbing them (along with Peyne, and Peyne's super-humans). St. John's primary abilities are telepathy and mind control, which is why the others aren't aware of what's happened until it's too late.

Still my favourite 2000ad story, bar none.

I think the price will settle down eventually (or people will simply get used to being stuffed and just accept it- it could go either way really).

I'm a bit torn on digital pricing, to be honest- though much less so when it comes to reprint material.

Discussion for another day, I think.

Hmm... Complete Case Files v. 4 is only 58p cheaper for me to buy as a download. I'm probably going to need slightly more incentive than that, to be honest.

An FAQ works fine if you can be bothered to link to it in your reply. Slightly less effective if you're hoping that somebody will bother to look for it themselves, though.

Dredd:

Shenanigans! Artificial eyes that are linked through the user's central nervous system to their gun, enabling them to shoot anything they can see, is TM* Matt Timson, winner of the prestigious 'Redesign Judge Dredd' competition, 2004.

In other news- nice catch that cleared up the confusion at the end of 'Wolves.' Loved the Lawmasters.




*Or at least, that's what I intend to tell anyone that will listen.

Didn't you used to have a couple of minutes to make an edit or something? Naturally, nobody ever sees their mistakes until the moment they've been posted.

Happy to leave it in, now. I'm happy for the world to finally see that I'm not unfallable.

Why is this stupid forum the only place on the entire cocking internet where I can't edit my posts?
