Quince must be the plural form of (Banjo) Quint

I just started issue 38 Aquila. I never read this in the original issues but was always a fan on Black Hawk in the Tornado years so thought it would be my thing, which it is.

In the intro bumpf at the beginning it suggests that the story has not been completed to this day.

Is this correct?  Is it a series that is likely to be cropping up again in the pages of 2thou? Or is it something that faded away?

The end where they disappear into a black hole?  Nope, nothing else after that.

Dinosty is listed under the separate heading "Pat Mills Creations" and unfortunately the categorisation is 1:1 rather than 1:n.

Sorry to hear about your relationship difficulties *

* see what I did there? ;)

Well, if it’s true to the books, no-one’s ever found anything west of Westeros anyway, so she’ll either turn back, starve or drown.

Or end up meeting Drogon (last seen flying East) on the other side of the world.

I’ve already had to endure an “it’s not fair, the fans deserved better” conversation with someone at work. 🙄

Most baffling reaction today was one of my FB friends going on at some length about 'betrayal' and citing fairy tales as if they were some kind of legal precedent. Seriously? You were expecting a fairy tale ending?! What ' show have you been watching for the last eight years?

Nice that the character with a historic penchant for red-headed wildlings got to ride off into the not-quite-sunset with one. :-)

:-D  Shame the red-headed wildling in question didn't end up with somebody a little taller though!

They didn't play up Jon's actually bloodline; I imagine a lot of people thinking that was a wasted twist.

It seems that only unworthy Targaryens get to sit on the Iron Throne - the rest go to the wall!

Second half didn't make much sense. It's not plausible that the Dothraki and Unsullied would meekly accept the verdict of the Westerosi, especially the regicide's own family.

There were so many nagging things like that that just have to be ignored, as we'll never get answers. How can a Stark be king of the realm given that his homeland just seceded from it? Why is there still a Night's Watch? Weren't the Ironborn promised sovereignty? How is Sam Grandmaester when he hasn't even completed his basic maester training? Etc etc.

Well, they may or may not get a more full explanation at a later date, depending on which events happen in the books.  How many times have you watched a film which only completely made sense if you'd already read the book, due to small details cut out in the final edit but which had been filmed (if they'd got that far from the source material).

Completely agree with every point raised above - the Ironborn one was the only one that didn't occur to me while watching.

New Stront might be a big hit and a regular fixture, or it could turn out like the Rogue Trooper, Harlem Heroes, Mean Arena, Mean Team, VCs, and Strontium Dogs reboots.

I get that Rogue Trooper and Harlem Heroes were reboots (though RT got tied in to continuity at a later stage), but how are VCs and Strontium Dogs reboots?  Also - I don't recall Mean Arena and Mean Team* ever getting rebooted, sequelised or anything of the sort.

* Well, Survivor, illustrated by Ron Smith, but that's a spin-off one-off.

I got mine from Gosh! Comics in Wardour Street (for those London-based and not wanting to buy on eBay).
