Oooh you're skating on thin ice there Frank...

I'm not sure if that's a permitted visual metaphor.

With the obvious proviso that all art and appreciation is subjective, Weston is now greater* than Bolland ever was.

Oohh I don't know about that, I absolutely adore Weston's art but greater...that's tough

One thing they both have in common is that when you see their b/w inking often it defies belief that a human hand has done such intricate work.

His current work is certainly better than the digital Bolland though, no contest!

This business about spoilers...I'm a bit confused.

This whole section is under the heading 'Spoilers'. People write their thoughts here after they've read the prog to express what they liked and didn't like about it.

Obviously people can read it before they read the prog but I assume that people expect spoilers from the heading and the nature of an amateur/fan review (as apposed to a professional tv/film/theatre critic's review) but read anyway...

I'm interested as my post contained a spoiler, but the main reason I posted was to say how much I loved what I referred to. I could have alluded to it rather than explicitly referring to it but I didn't think it was necessary...interested for future posts..

And with that Williams/Weston Dredd, Tharg has my subscription for another year.

He probably had it just with the second panel on p4, but with the new Ape Gang appearing on the last page - oh joy!!


There were some other strips in the prog too I think...

Indeed - Bravo Frank!

Although, I would expect more from Justice Department than from Inspector Clouseau and his colleagues at the Surete...

Love McCarthy's art (normally) but he's another casualty of the digital painting revolution, this cover is not a patch on when paints, with paint..

Still enjoying Durham Red, not that impressed with the rest of this week's offerings.

What do you mean...

bull, light, horse's head, legs, arms, and up-turned face...it's all pretty clear to me...

But I thought Durham Red was officially not sexy anymore...?

Dredd was an interesting one, enjoyable story and art. Generally like Jake Lynch's loose McM like style...but, a small thing, I really don't like the way he draws the Lawmaster...

Durham Red is a joy and Deadworld is completely nuts.

I had some hopes for Skip Tracer but based on this episode they're fading. Although it started well, with the 4 armed kebab seller we were back to cliched, annoying hard ass, black ops etc...etc..

In an alternate reality, probably one where President Boone was the last president of Amerika, Tharg phoned Kendall and had him work that panel up into Cover Of The Year 2018.

So many individual panels are masterpieces in miniature, but go unappreciated because the artist prioritised storytelling over showboating. It's good to highlight moments where an artist's obviously touched on something that really resonates with him; Ancient and Malevolent are the first blocks in Kendall's custom colour palette.[1]

Kek-W haps psertainly pstruck upon a psuitably dipstinctive psignature pstyle of pspeech for psi characterps, although the temptation to overdo it ips obvioupsly irrepsipstible.

Pspeaking of alternate realities, I can see why two lefties couldn't pass up the opportunity to depict Melania bludgeoning Trump to death in the Kremlin, but if we're to understand Deadworld as a mirror universe of Dredd Alpha, wouldn't it have been more interesting to have Clinton[2] win the election (rather than the popular vote)?

Booth/Boone as Trump and the 2016 (or 2020) election already don't quite fit into the timeline, but throwing Kazan and the Apocalypse War (2104) onto the bonfire really emphasises Nigel's not playing a Long game. Nobody's meticulously planned out how this is all going to fit into an alternate history of MC1[3], like Alan Moore with his roll of butcher paper or Jon Osterman with his watch parts.


[1] Speaking of colour, alluding to Ezquerra's colour aesthetic for his two least lovely female character creations is a lovely touch.

[2] 'The third sister. Call her Delirium'

[3] Which is fine. It's interesting to mark the distinction, though.


I sometimes find what you write about the prog more interesting than the actual prog itself...(naming no, Survival Geeks, strips in particular).

I think you must be one of those (v. few) people that actually understands David Lynch films/tv programmes...not one of the majority that pretends to...or maybe everyone's pretending...especially Lynch


Dark chocolate Digestive, obviously.

Great cover - always a pleasure to have Dowling in the prog.

Dredd's still good and Durham Red's great.

As someone says above, having started to enjoy Deadworld at last, I'm losing the plot (of the story) now too...
