There was a stage when we had all the epics only related to killing of millions and destroying cities. This might be a reason why something like even Day of Chaos I do nor ate near my top epics.

This is where the prog in general has been really good with each run sporting a great variety of strips and different themed series. This is one reason why I believe this regen issue was good since it did have that variety in stories.

Manco for me is doing all the heavy lifting the script is riding an the wave of the stunning visuals. I am at this stage bamboozled that Slaine is not my favourite thing in the prog. I am a great fan of the stories and I want to like it and it is almost that I lost interest. Hopefully next week we are amazed by the awesome ending.

Given that ABC Warriors has been ret-cons and recycling for years, god knows how it’d be closed off.

It'd be a big job alright.

ABC Warriors I am not sure if I would care if its back or not, I would rather have more Defoe

As much as anything, it would be a crime against comics not to let Manco have a longer tenure when he was clearly born to draw this strip.

I would definitely like to see more Manco doing Slaine. The current arc feels very much like Brutannia in pacing where we had a 4 books which could have been done in 2. Brutannia reads much better collected than it read in its tenure in the prog. Would be nice of a gentlemen's agreement can be reached and Slaine and Savage closed off properly.

Where is it in digital? Is it DRM-free (CBR or PDF)? I’d like to buy it, but need it to be usable in a reader I can tolerate.

It is in a PDF format. Quite big almost 1GB

Great cover homage, was I alone in hoping it would be a wraparound? 

No you are not. It is always a welcome sign to have a wraparound cover

Books & Comics / Rok Of The Reds

I have backed the kickstarter for Rok the God. It was a great read. Now I see that Rok Of The Reds is finally available in digital format and my question is, is it worthwhile getting if you have already read Rok the God? I am quite tempted since this is John Wagner for crying out loud.

A good solid prog after the regen prog. 

Dredd - A solid kick-off to the new story arc. I like the away the story unfolds revealing on the last panel our favourite new citizen Chimpsky.

Slaine – Not sure how this will all warp up in one episode. This feels to me more like it was designed to be multiple books rather than one series. Art as always is fantastic script wise it is okey but not really grabbing me.

Thistlebone – The first episode is more off a setup but still keeps you engaged to want more. The last few pages keep the intrigued on high alert.

Vex – Great story great art. Over the last few episodes more and more has been revealed about the Flesh Pilots and Carroll continues the world building.  I have read that he has started on the third series.

Red – The story is hurtling to its conclusion and what a great ride this was. Red tells us more about he drive and the layers in her armament. This is not the same Red that started those many progs ago but a completely different “beast”.
