I don't want an Absolom epilogue; it would detract from this week's ending, which was perfect.

Damn shame that the subscriber prog comes with the back cover exposed...

Not really. Firstly, it would be the same if you bought it in a shop. Secondly, I think it works very well as a nice bit of misdirection. You see it, you think Harry survives and gets a happy ending, then when you read the episode you discover that he actually died, and that final page means something else entirely.

The bit about the grandkids not ageing wasn't fully explained, but there was that comment about a final twist of the knife or whatever (when they were talking about the faked photos of them ageing), so I just thought it was some nasty trick by the demons, so I didn't question it.

(It would have been even nastier if thry had aged rapidly instead and were Harry's age!

Excellent front and back covers, excellent ending for Absolom.

Chris Weston is brilliant and I always look forward to seeing his work.

That was always going to be a challenge, but I would rather have new Indigo Prime than not have any.

It doesn't. It was before he was good.

Oh and skip Wireheads and Kid Cyborg.

Slaughterbowl was a great story, although I think it was let down by mediocre art. It got me through the Summer Offensive. I enjoyed Inferno at the time, and although on re-reading it years later I realised it's actually rubbish, it does have fully painted art by Carlos Ezquerra and it's some of his best work ever.

The Clown is unfairly maligned, it was alright. It has a joke in it that made me unable to stop laughing for ages.

As someone else said above, Pussyfoot 5 suffers by comparison with Devlin Waugh, but taken on its own it's pretty good. Probably easier to follow if you read it all in one go instead of prog by prog.

And I have to defend Garth Ennis here. Yes, some of his Jusge Dredd stories were dire, but also some of them were pretty good, and some were excellent: Raider, Justice One, Twilight's Last Gleaming, Return of the King, The Marshal,  Ex-Men, and Unwelcome Guests are all highlights. Karl Urban mentioned Raider as one of his faves from when he was researching the role. So there!

Definitely avoid Space Girls and Drudgefather.

Be patient, it'll happen. It takes a while to make a new tv series.

My mistake -- I missed the bit where you said across both collections.

Astonishing to think that so much of the comic has been reprinted so quickly.
