Prog / Re: PROG 2111 - Welcome to the Thrill-Party!
« on: 09 December, 2018, 03:49:12 pm »
After a recent run of thrill-powered progs, this xmas prog was more of a whimper than a bang for me...

A reasonable cover...good but not great from an artist as accomplished as Higgins.

I didn't enjoy the Dredd at all, I've never liked Boo Cook's art and the story, which I think was supposed to be amusing, was not, just tired and rather sad.

Difficult to say if Caballistics was any good as I haven't read the previous episodes. 

Enjoyed the Gosnell and Burt-1 interviews. 

Deadworld's not my cup of gore at all.

Skip Tracer, not generally very engaging but readable. 

Slaine drawn by Weston was great! Chris Weston's recent activities in the prog, a few covers and even the odd strip, keep me subbing in the lean times.  Anything drawn by Weston is pretty much great. Mr Mills seems to have written a story for Slaine for the first time in a while too. 

Brink - just brilliant. Completely engrossed in this.  One of the few stories, these days, that I remember from the previous week and don't have to go back and remind my self of what's going on.

The Fiends and Durham Red were pretty enjoyable too...so on second thoughts, whilst it was less than a bang, maybe it was more than a whimper...

The prog has certainly powered through to the end of the year.

It's gone from being rather flat for some time to an absolute thrill-fest since the last jump-on prog.

An amazing cover, if only Chris Weston could have drawn the episode...

Brink continues to be brilliant and I even enjoyed Sin/Dex!

Kingdom could end well here, and maybe should, but...at the same time doesn't have to.

Looking forward to the Christmas prog. Hail Tharg!

Very nice! It was an enjoyably ridiculous story and you've got a page of Dillon's art (relatively) inexpensively.

It IS Dredd's house...have you forgotten Dredd IS the LAW!

Can't decide if the explanation about the horse makes it more or less ridiculous...

"This is MY HOUSE...creep!" Love it!

Yes, there are some pretty valid criticisms but overall I've really enjoyed the Small House. Good to see Dredd acting with some conviction and dishing it out rather than getting blown up or beaten to pulp. By recent standards the nasty gut-shot is pretty mild...

That's great, with over 200 people chipping in!

I bought the Times today to read the obit in the paper. 

Overall it's a good piece BUT there's a glaring error!

Under his picture there's a caption stating that he was loyal to DC Comics throughout his career!!

The caption must have been written by someone else, as the piece makes it clear that he worked for 2000ad and wasn't lured by the almighty dollar to Marvel or DC...

(However if Dredd's magic horse turns up again to save the day, I'll be disappointed. That was the most ridiculous deux ex machina ever.)

At last someone mentions that horse again!

I was pretty unimpressed with all that ice creature business but then that horse turning up... that was a bit of a piss take.

The ice theme is clearly part of this story too...if the foam on Smiley's latte is anything to go by...although of course it's tea

It's not really a surprise, given the way things have been heading, but still packs quite a punch!

Still full steam ahead with the prog, great stuff.

And oh, Dredd's a bit of an eye opener...

I liked DR & Quinch, the war story looks like a dry run for book 3 of Halo Jones. The agony column strips were funny, but you wouldn't really have missed them if they weren't there - I think they only put it in for the Halo Jones reference.

I guess 15 (Wikipedia says 13) books of Slaine is quite a lot, even if some of them are quite short. But then, still not as long as 3 books of Robo-Hunter.

Is that 13 or 15 volumes in the collection devoted to Slaineā€¦?

Or can a number of books be contained in one volume.  Other than the McMahon and Fabry Slaine I'm not too bothered... Having to accommodate 15 or even 13 books of Slaine may mean me having to cancel my subscription...

If you haven't already, try hippynumber1 a couple of posts down. Think he's got some SD and Dredd and he's selling off some pages from his collection.

Ah nice one, cheers Eamonn.

Interesting that Alan Davis drew published DR & Quinch artwork as recently as that...

Got a big box delivery today Robohunter vol 2 and DR & Quinch and Skizz along with the '90s covers volume. 

I don't think I've seen that DR & Quinch cover before..... I can't imagine it's new for this collection.  Anyone know where it's from?

Mmnn I'm not a fan of that cover, I really don't like the way Lynch draws the Lawmaster...

The actual cover looks great without forum-blurTM. I give everyone a break on the lawmaster; like the gun, only the late, great Carlos Ezquerra* could make that original design look really good.

Oh yes, there's a lot about the Dredd strip that must make it difficult and time consuming to draw. The judges uniforms are very intricate, and then there's the bike/s and even the gun! Carlos made it look so easy...

The rest of the prog just powers on, all the stories and art are great. Loving the prog at the moment!
