Thank you both.

This is top quality this week.

There's an excellent one-off Judge Dredd story by Rory McConville and Tom Foster. I think we've seen Tom before, but I can't remember when/where. But his style is very reminiscent of Brian Bolland's, in a good way. I'd like to see more from him. If Tharg doesn't get Brian back for the episode when Hershey dies (as she surely must soon, and he did her first episode), I'd like to see Tom Foster do it. The story is Rory at his best.

It's actually possible to follow what's happening in Indigo Prime this week, which is nice. It's also quite eventful. Ditto Anderson, and I'm still a fan of Aneke's style, whatever others might think of it.

I'm not usually keen on Absalom, but this episode is fantastic. I can't really explain why without spoiling it, but it's just great and it has made me care about two characters in a strip where I didn't care about any of them before.

Thistlebone seems to introduce the bad guy at last, unless it's just misdirection (and unless we actually have seen him before and I'm just having a senior moment).

There's a Droid Life and some letters.

All in all, nothing was disappointing this week. And the Megazine has arrived too!

There's a letter missing from "recruited."

It deals with the issues #Metoo raised several years before that happened. I think it's likely that the tv people will make it topical like that.

Just showed the gallery of logos to my wife, who never reads comics, just out of curiosity. She said the prog 1 logo was best, and the chrome one was cheesy. I was a bit surprised that her view reflects what others have said on this and earlier threads.

The chrome logo sort of lives on in the shape of the text "2000" in the stamp logo and the current logo.

I like the 555 one, maybe I'm biased because it's the first one I saw so for me it feels definitive. But Stamp IV and the current logo are close enough that I can get behind them too.

That was the worst logo ever. I don't think it even qualifies as a logo really, it's just a font.

There are definite advantages to hard covers, but for me they are outweighed by the extra space they take up. I am running out of shelf space for books and comics and graphic novels, and I can't keep buying A4 size hardbacks, I need the smaller US-size paperbacks or else I'll soon have to start a one-in, one-out policy.

Also, the cheaper price should hopefully mean that more people will be willing to take a chance on buying it.

Good work!

Ask him if that's his real name.

That was a stunning conclusion for The Samaritan. That story deserves to be collected in the Machine Law book, or in the 2000AD Ultimate Collection. I think four episodes was just right. I hope we'll see more from this writer soon.

I'm not sure how Doc Cotton thinks he's going to survive in deep space without a spacesuit, but whatever. I'm just glad Lee Carter's back.

I agree with everything Indigo Prime said.

However, while the recovery was gradual, and didn't happen overnight, I did think at the time that the comic had made it through the mire and was finally going to be alright when I read the first episode of The Pit in prog 970.

I'd be delighted with three seasons. The Walking Dead was good for three years, and then it got boring.

I think Karyn has become an interesting character now that she's possessed. I don't mind reading a story or two about that.
