Yup, just watched that (cheers for the heads up Jim!) -very awesome.

I was dubious about Discovery at first, but it feels like proper Star Trek - I don't give a shit what internet whiners say, AFAIC the Trek universe is continuing jut as good as always

Dude, even if you never bought another prog in your life, you're still a squaxx till you die: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UPw-3e_pzqU

When I got disillusioned with buying Marvel comics in the late 80s, I figured that anything good would be collected in  books that I could buy after the event. So even if you can't justify a weekly sub, continuing to hang around here must give you enough tips to pick up the best stories when they do get collected - current fave though is Brink.

I don't know what the public Libraries are like round you, but you can sometimes read loads of comic books (inc 2000ad stuff) for free. Manchester had a big spending splurge a few years ago, and the conic section was huge and diverse for a while - They have stopped buying them now because apparently GNs get stolen more than any other type of book. Sad.

I know I could do homework via Barney if I really wanted to research it, but seriously, life's too short - just a brief mention of what the story is about would do.

Lovely.

Amongst all of Marvel, the FF are special and unique and I love 'em (one of my earliest memories is bugging my big brother to show me "rock man" in his comics before I could actually read them)

Does the Dave Gibbon pic go 3D if you have the glasses?

I am constantly amazed by the pictures on this thread - surprising images from top pros like PJ and amazing amateur talent. We are a lucky forum.

I'm really enjoying your reread journey but you're sometimes frustratingly lacking in detail so I can't remember the stories you reference - for example:
Quote
Dredd has a glorious opening to a really fun story amongst the many gloriously Mega City One citzens that this story showcases - with Dredd really nothing more than a blunt tool in this tale we get the first appearance of Oola Blint.
The name rings a bell, but I have no idea what story you're talking about.

I considered that possibility but gave him the benefit of the doubt as he may have been talking about the incidental music - if he did mean Queen's mighty oeuvre, then Cosh is dead to me. My big bro was a huge Queen fan, and I impressed my primary school classmates by being able to do the whole of Bohemian Rhapsody. (We shared a  bedroom and I did get freaked out by his Queen poster, the four faces of the band - it was the first time I came across the phenomena that looking into the lens means the eyes seem to follow you - he used that to freak me out as a kid.)

the long-standing tradition of outgoing governments to leave jokey notes for the incoming - which the Tories ripped ripped up and spat on by making the joke public and pretending it was real

My favourite was the Clinton staffers who, when George W Bush came in, removed all the Ws from the white house keyboards. Childish, but made me smile.

Loving the art but the story has lost me somewhat - the original fiends was such a novel concept it worked, but we now seem to be getting more generic "vampires fight wars" stories and I really don't care which species of bat I'm supposed to be rooting for.

Is that Dr Feelygood patching Dredd up?

I loved that little callback - one of my favourite 2000ad robots!

When I finished Lawless, I thought it was a satisfying conclusion, a nice 'epilogue' episode and assumed that was that ... then I noticed the "next issue.." line, so I guess it's not over after all. It could have ended here with no problems, but I'm interested to see where it goes next.

Dredd and Storm Warning were good, if not quite classics.

Torture Garden was superb - I never thought the dark judges could be scary again, but in this series and the Deadworld stuff in the prog, they have gone back to being seriously creepy.

I'm skipping Blunt (which is usually unheard of for me) I have no interest in the story and don't like the art much.

So two stonkers, two good-enoughs and one dud - I'd say that's a pretty good scorecard for a diverse anthology.

That's a lot of stomm you've got to deal with CL - my sympathies on your loss and all the best wishes - stay strong and don't be afraid to ask for help if you need it.

Blitzed my way through the whole of Titans  at the weekend - really enjoyed it. Very violent but adapts the main storylines of the comics well. Saddled somewhat by the inclusion of two of DC's sillier superheroes, Hawk & Dove, but as long as they don't spend much time in costume, they're not so bad. Glorious cameo from Doom Patrol a few episodes in (I understand they're getting their own spin off). No sign of Cyborg yet, but there's a post-credits teaser after the final ep showing Superboy busting Krypto out of a lab in Metropolis.

The final episode featuring an imaginary scenario of Dick Grayson having to take down an out-of-control Batman was good fun -Badass Bruce!
