Prog / Re: Prog 2192 - Bearing Down!

PS That was a rhetorical question. I am quite sure one is a clone or robot or from another time line. I just can't bring myself to care - so God help any casual reader picking up the prog.

You're clearly very confused! You've described two different characters while believing them to be the same person! Just give up now! (I agree that The Order is generally incomprehensible though.)

What's hard to follow about Full Tilt Boogie though? .

You're right about Full Tilt Boogie. I am taking my annoyane on the Order out on it.

But if I am genuinely confusing two characters then that makes things worse.

Are there really two identical characters with orange hair with a white stripe, wearing identical purple clothing? How are you supposed to distinguish them?

And surely the fact I need to ask that question sums up the problems with the Order?

I have given up on the Order and Full Tilt Boogie. I just don't understand what is going on.

The Order is a ramble of non sequiturs that render it incomprehensible. Example from this week: the orange haired chap. (I long ago lost track of who was who, sorry).

Page 2, panel 1: He is commiserating with someone. Talking sense: "Aye. I know, big fella. She's gone".

Page 2, panel 3: He is shot.


Page 4, panel 5: He is holding his head. (And the art makes it look like the location has changed, as its gone from a ship deck to pitch black)


Page 5, panel 5: He is walking like a zombie.

I get that he has somehow been damaged. But it is too hard to follow and lacks narrative flow. This could have been done on one page with clear showing of the damage and how it affects him. Instead, it's spread over three, jumples with panels showing other characters and actions and scens, and makes the whole thing utter gibberish.

Dredd: Meh. He fights a bear.

Full Tilt: No idea.

Diaboliks: The double page spreads are confusing too.

Out: Good.

Like hardcovers? Like Thirteenth Floor? Then secure your copy of volume 2 right now:

Yes, I do. Yes, I do. Yes, I did.

Help! / Spotify or Amazon Unlimited?

Our family Amazon music account has expired.

It's the same cost to shift to Spotify, which I am thinking of doing. It seems easier to use.

Any views?

Yeah different sorts of intelligence. He's clearly got a fantastic deductive mind and that's evidenced numerous times. He's also got incredible intuition from years of experience. He's got immense depth of factural knowledge on a number of specialist subjects, not least the law but also technical knowledge of the stuff he needs to know etc etc. But there are areas he's lacking, he's not got time for strategic thinking he's too busy operationalising.

So yeah clearly pretty damned smart with an intelligence that adapts to what he needs to focus on. The idea that he's a bit dull might stem from the fact he's been described a few times in the last few years as  blunt instrument or similar. That again though is about how he's been used by the justice department rather than any measure of his raw capacity to learn, or his intelligence. Seems to be of he's had the desire to apply himself he'd make a fine political thinker, but he's never gone that way, has no real interest and so isn't the person you'd turn to for political insight or analysis.

Bet he's a stickler for spelling and grammer too and would not tolerant a typo...

I saw what you did their!

The Old Guard, the latest from Netflix.

Same Old Garbage more like. Predictable and comes across as a pilot for a series that will never be made...

Can't help but wonder if this was rushed into the prog at the expense of build up, in order to meet production deadlines in lockdown. Tharg probably has a drawer full of mega epics in case a page is late.

Never mind the links in the badge chain... where's the zip, man?

Is there really a month between progs 366 and 377? Blimey. I did not realise that. Too little at the time, I guess, and too old now!

I'm here most days, but I really should make more of an effort to post.

Me too
