All of the above, plus the next issue is the landmark #400 — a ‘jumping on’ issue. It also has the return of ‘Lawless’, one of the best strips in either the Prog or Meg of recent years. If you were thinking of starting reading, I honestly couldn’t recommend it enough.

All original. There was a point in the past when the Meg had a chunk of reprint for economic reasons, but everything in the magazine is new. The additional ‘floppy’ that comes bagged with it is reprint — often interesting, sometimes excellent.

There's other things from 2000AD I'd rather see turned into films

Well, if you can scare up $50-$100M in backing and a deal with a distributor, I’m pretty sure Tharg will be happy to talk to you about any 2000AD property you’d like to see on the big screen.

Presumably, like the artists, once they've handed over their work it ceases to be their own. Makes me wonder why people still want to provide work like that... the love for your craft only stretches so far.

Simple answer: everyone has bills to pay. For all that people tout creator-owned books as the be-all and end-all, it's highly unlikely that you'll lose money on a work-for-hire gig for a publisher of any size. There are plenty of people who barely see a penny from their creator-owned books, up to and including Image.

I gather that although Mills and Wagner were jointly credited, they actually alternated on the stories, so these are Mills yarns and City of the Damned (sounds familiar...) and Dogs of Doom are Wagner tales.

I hadn’t heard that and will defer to m’learned friend.

There seems to be a name missing from that press release…

Did anyone else wonder how the lab, the delicate equipment and the people inside survived all that mucking about?

No, because the fundamental premise makes no scientific sense whatsoever. Either roll with it, or don’t.

I seem to recall Pat said that Hammer of the Witches/Warlock got stymied by Langley going off travelling, though why it was curtailed when Nemesis finally returned (other than teh idea of ending the srip in prog 2000) I'm not sure

ISTR Kev O’Neill said he’d draw the last episode on the condition that it was the last episode. Hence the subsequent Termight spin-off with Deadlock (which I’d happily have seen more of).

.... then side step to Torquemada.

…But it's the Elfric thrust that really drives them insane.

Some pretty up-to-date stuff on Simon's Deviant Art page.


A catholic priest from an early 1990s story who looks like they hit the gym often and is very conversant with various weaponry?  Canon Fodder teams up with Devlyn Waugh!

Time slip to Defoe…

True. The Meg has been routinely excellent for several years now, to the extent that I fear we might be rather taking it for granted. I know that I certainly don’t express my appreciation of its quality nearly often enough. Excluding a couple of quality spikes like ‘America’ and ‘Swimming In Blood’, I think it’s as good as it’s ever been. That Matt manages put this out alongside feeding content to the ravenous beast that is 2000AD is quite an accomplishment.

Didn't word that very well, did I? Oh well, no cause for embarrassment, it's not like I'm an English teacher or anything.

Oh wait...

Oh and whilst I have Ben Willsher in my top three artists, he has actually done very little for Tharg since Day of Chaos. I hope he is recovered as I would love to see more of that style he employed on the recent Durham Red story ( as well as his previous style).

As in Death Race 2000. Which does feature Stallone, of course, just not as Frankenstein (he's David Carradine.)

Stallone is David Carradine? Blimey… he’s a more versatile actor than people give him credit for.
