Only the second entry in this series, and already a correction: The Order actually started in Prog 2015 (Christmas Version), not Prog 1912 as stated above (and on Barney!). 

Hmm. This scholarly stuff is all very well and good but lets not get ahead of ourselves...

Nice one.

I remember looking it up and the old bridge across the Vltava really was destroyed in 1342.

BBC article: Portland protests: Oregon state files lawsuit against federal US government

Key quote: "federal officers in unmarked vehicles appeared to forcefully seize protesters from the streets and detain them without justification".

Trump's extra-judicial goon squads are detaining non-violent protesters, basically.

Quite fascinating Twitter thread related to this on the idea of collusion and plausible deniability.

Definitely intelligent - he wrote the Comportment, didn't he?

We've never seen inside the Comportment, though. It might just be a bunch of doodles.
We haven’t but Rico has in Leaving Rowdy. He seemed impressed.

Amazon/Kindle specifically seems a weird choice considering Millsverse stuff is already on Comixology.

Still not able to buy this via the iOS app. The price label is continually refreshing and has been all week, despite multiple restarts and refreshes.

Tharg's Terror Tales: The Death of Death-Man, FCBD 2016 - this has the writer as "Barry Island", which I presume is a pseudonym of Al Ewing. Art by Henry Flint.
Both Al and Rob Williams have denied this to my face!

There’s also Death Man:The Gathering in the 2017 Scream/Misty special. That’s credited to Henry Flint and “The Feek” which I thought at the time was that guy Martin Feekins but from what I hear now it looks like it’s a direct prologue to The Vigilant.

Kids today don't even know that All Your Base Are Belong to Us!

Not many things more tedious than a bunch of engineering students quoting Red Dwarf to each other. Bring on the smug cat I say.

News / Re: BARNEY updated! Props to The Cosh

Hey guys!
Realm of the Damned isn't creator-owned, sadly. It was custom work-for-hire for the publisher. Rebellion licensed the reprint from them.
Barney's awesome! Keep up the great work!
Cheers. Will try to get this updated shortly.

Awesome. Don’t remember those at all from the Prog but they’re the covers from  the Eagle comics Judge Dredd reprints.

Film & TV / Re: Last movie watched...

On a side note, I learned a little history about Mad Max as there was an introduction to the film by Leonard Maltin. I never knew that the first film wasn't well-received in America, that it had been dubbed to get rid of the Aussi accents and that Mad Max didn't get any traction in the US until this second film was released.
This is why Yanks normally refer to it as just The Road Warrior.

One of the most disappointing things ever to happen to me was when I bough the Mad Max Trilogy (three films on two VHS) from a Virgin Megastore, rushed home to watch it and discovered it was the dubbed version. Arseholes.

Already bought more digital Progs than I'll ever need but having Insurrection to hand seems too tempting to miss.

Games / Re: PlayStation 5 / Xbox Series X mega-thread!

Will probably get a PS5 in about three or four years once there's a few decent exclusive games to get.

Noooo. I forgot to vote. And it would’ve been Grant.

Once this is all sorted out - what would be the best way to add things?  As I recall things like text stories in annuals, everything related to Starlord, Tornado and probably Crisis and Revolver could do with a bit of filling in.  I have all those by the way and am offering.
I guess it will depend in what form Barney makes it back and I don't want to step on Wake's toes there.

Assuming it is resurrected in its existing state then there used to be a thread where people stuck up corrections or, if there's a lot to add/change, you can send it to Wake or me and we can sort it.

What is it that you have? I know a lot of the "Beyond 2000AD" stuff is missing page counts and so on.
