My god, considering it's only two parts long, everyone seems to be reading a horrendous amount into the Dredd tale. Can't we all just get along and enjoy the strip?!?

I've used them in the past for other comics as a nipper... can't remember which ones, though, except for Ghostbusters...

Pretty sure it was, I thought the very same thing when reading this month's meg.

Hmm, well Gideon's got the edge in weight and sheer power, but Shakara's got speed, agility, and a whole bunch of cool kit... My money would be on Shakara, just becuase someone who's already dead should give even a big robot like that a run for their money.

Ah, Oink was great. And Sonic the Comic was awesome, some great Richard Elson artwork in it.

I never read this - what does anyone reckon, worth getting? Does it live up to the hype?

Yeah, the V.C.s promised so much in the first book and delivered so little...

I've never read much old Rogue, apart from the excellent Charybdis, but the recent re-invention was just terrible. Same with Robo-Hunter, never really read this before and the recent ones are almost embarassing. Mabye it was good in its hey-day, (enough people seem to say so) but to judge it by the ones I've read... eesh.

And I agree about Sin/Dex. When it wants to it can be stunning (e.g. the space adventure one) but this happens so little now I'm really starting to wonder why it's still going. So many fillers... so little sucsessful humour..

Best thing in the prog - Shakara, obviously! An almighty ruck comes to a close with one last smaller, though far more vicious ruck. De'ath bored me a little until this part, when he suddenely became an intimidating but charismatic psycho. Gorgeous art, loving the story, roll on book 3.

Atavar managed (just) to resolve everything set up, and in quite a nice way too, feeling just a tad rushed but nicely avoiding a strictly linear end, i.e. not needing to show us just what happened afterwards.

Sin/Dex was, well, average, and Dredd managed to end on a spectacular anti-climax after all the build-up to get to this showdown. If pasha was the Sov's 'top asassin', I don't hold out much hope for them.
Ah, well - two outta four ain't bad.

I'm pretty certain that in the pre-story hype Tharg said something about Charon the cabbie (from Kal's first appearance) turning up. Anyone else remember that, or am I just imagining it?

Yeah, he did - and i think most of that story was supposed to be becoming relevant, the cabbie, that disc Kal nicked and all that (his first story, wasn't it? Back when I thought he promised new things for the strip, none of which have so far happened!)

Anyway, I'm guessing this train tale's going to have to lead on to another soon, cos no way can they resolve all this in only another five pages.

(And it's great to post something about the latest prog without ONCE having to mention the Dredd artwork in any form!!!)

With regards to Dredd, I reckon Rennie's still playing with us. Only one part to go, but I still reckon he could confound expectations.

Guthrie was always the most obvious (too obvious) choice to die, so I'm not convinced yet. Note they've only found limb fragments, not actual limbs. It's still entirely possible this has just been a red herring and he'll come back with a bionic arm or something - Giant and Rico are both still 'touch and go' and so potentially due a visit by the reaper.

Or, of course, it could still be Vienna that dies - but who says she has to die? Mabye Dredd finds he's forced to arrest her after killing that bloke? That'd be good - or, reading all the 'bloodline' stuff, could she even decide to become a judge after this? Now that would be cool...

And did she look anything like the above lass? Wings? Gas-mask ensemble? No? Ah well. Nice art though.

Well, it's gotta be a story that's relatively straightforward, showcases the judges and big meg nicely, and doens't rely on too much backstory and continuity, but still has plenty of action and scope for big visuals and action setpieces -

May I suggest the apocalypse war, which is a pretty epic piece but still relatively simple and near enough the start of dredd continuity so as to be approachable to newcomers?

I would want to see it if it's a) good, as opposed to arse, and b) it involves Judge Death, who I reckon would instantly become one of the greatest film villians of all time...
