I watched the latest trailer and this looks really good.


Other Reviews / Death Wish - Best Wishes
« on: Today at 09:56:06 am »
My first encounter with Death Wish was when Tiger merged with Eagle. Death Wish quickly would become one of my favorite stories in the “Eagle and Tiger” comic. Vanyo’s detailed art and Barry Tomlinson script brought the world of Death Wish to light.

I never read any of the Death Wish stories in either Tiger or Speed, so more out nostalgic reasons and curiosity I bought the first volume. This volume contains the stories and its origin from Speed before the merger with Tiger.

Typically, of stories during that period we have 4 to 5-part stories that contains a story-line. Even with the way the stories are structured it is still an enjoyable read. I thought that due to its age (mine and the stories) that I might not enjoy it as much when a wish younger. In some sense the story still holds up quite well and it is wonderful to see Vanyo’s art.

I enjoyed the latest Meg,

The Dredd story is my highlight this month. Good solid Dredd tale.

I was little bit unsure of Diamond Dogs but episode 2 nails it for me and it looks like something that will be quite enjoyable.

The Returners feels like it should have told us more story but it is not getting out of the gates.

The Anderson and Demarco stories both have solid starts.

To see what is worthwhile just see what you can find that has been reprinted. If it’s hard to get, then you know it is most likely not worth your time or effort. Most of the stuff you mentioned MumbiJimbo has not been reprinted. I will say it again stuff like Big Dave is just plain rubbish. I cannot remember any of these stories, but I can remember the stories prior to this period.

A very good prog again

Many times, I have been critical of McConville's Dredd stories because it will fluctuate between average and good. This round we get the good. What a enjoyable story from art to script.

Indigo Prime
From script side: it has very nice pictures
From the art side: it has very nice pictures

The ending of Absalom is just so sad but we knew from the beginning that we will have collateral damage. Rennie produces a brilliant script with great art from Tiernen

If you want happy endings then maybe Dredd is not the story for you.......

Tom Foster's last Dredd story was in prog 2040 "The Wrap-Up". He also did a story in the Judge Dredd Megazine "Storm Warning" running from 404 to 408.

The special was not bad but it is not really my cup of tea. I got it more of out curiosity.

I do not mind the longer stories I do not like it when we have a 2 year break between them. Brink comes to mind on the longer stories but the breaks between is sorter.

As Dandontdare said most things you like is based upon the time that you who growing up. I really like the “chrome” logo whereas the ones that followed is to my taste. It is like the current Dredd logo I got used to it but I still prefer the classic one used for many, many moons.

But still I cannot understand the "hate" for the logo that will rule all logos  :'( :( :o

Thanks for rebooting to old memory circuits for me AlexF, I miss mister Talbot's work in the prog. He will always be my ultimate Nemesis artist.

Thanks for this Funt.

My favorite is still the "Classic [golden age] (178)", maybe I am bias but this is the logo I knew when I started reading AD.
