The Long Walk sticks in my memory, decades after I read it.

Gives a weekly for the sproglets, and a monthly for the oldies.

Here's a thought...

Do you think the prog would ever be replaced by Re-Gened, with regular/historic stuff folded into the Meg?

Passengers with Chris Pratt and Jenifer Lawrence playing themselves stuck on a damaged spaceship travelling towards some planet. It was okay-ish with Love over Gold storyline, but I kept thinking what 2000AD would have done with this premise. It would have had them woken up by other passengers, who have all turned cannibals as the food dispensers don't work! Then it would be a battle for survival in the spaceships grey corridors with accountants and sociologists trying to murder Pratt and Lawrence who'd have to team up or be lunch. See? It's always better with 2000AD!

Normally, miogeny passed me by. But this film has the most rape-y plot I have ever seen in a blockbuster and I am stunned that it's not been called out (to my knowledge). Basically, Pratt has a thing for a pretty girl he's never met, and he thaws her out - condeming her to age and die while her friends and colleagues are in statsi - so that he can get his leg over, which he knows he will because he is literally the last and only man she will ever meet.

She should have stabbed him in the eye for killing her.

I was also a dab hand at Law in Tekken 2 and 3. I played so much I developed callouses on my thumbs.

I once got a perfect round against my older brother, standing outside the room, with my back to the screen and my eyes closed. I played based on sound cues from his character.

Then he beat the crap out of me for being a smart arse. Which was kind of just like the game, only in real life and reversed. And more painful.

Yes, I have to come out in defence of the current help team too.

Polite, courteous, understanding and helpful are the words I would use.

They are a credit to Rebellion. They can't magic a hard copy prog out of thin air. I never got my Chrimbo prog. Without question, I got a refund and a digital copy. (I sourced a replacement from an online comic shop for the price of the refund plus postage).

Exemplary service.

I was the zen master of that. No one could beat me. No. One.
