I’ve already had to endure an “it’s not fair, the fans deserved better” conversation with someone at work. 🙄

For me, only Finder and Keeper feels like it justifies some of the criticism of being aimed at a younger audience

I must be the only person who preferred Finder & Keeper to Full Tilt Boogie - shame, looks like I won't get to see any more :-(

I was thinking the same; at last, I know I’m not alone. There was nothing wrong with ‘Full Tilt Boogie’ but, for me, it felt very disjointed. I kept thinking I’d missed a couple of panels. Finders & Keepers, while predictable, was good fun, just disappointing that it was a pilot episode rather than a self-contained one-off. Overall, I really enjoyed the whole Regened prog.

Worth noting that those Bolland pages have been there for a good, long while and remain unsold. There’s an Invisibles cover for a little over £4K that started much higher and, again, remains unsold.

Still nothing here either. I haven’t asked for a replacement as there are so many of us missing the prog I figure it must be a dispatch issue. On the very few occasions (maybe three times in the last decade) that I’ve asked, Rebellion have been brilliant at sending a new copy out.

No prog (still) at Chez Hippy. I feel so oppressed.

Ignoring everything else, that’s a terrible title.

Up for grabs: all 12 cover prints from 2018’s Megazine. I have no idea what these are worth, if anything, so PM with offers of cold, hard, cash or trades.

Hi Krakajac

I was 49 when my son was born so you’re definitely not alone and I can appreciate some of what you’re feeling. My dad died of cancer when I was 28 and I made a conscious decision at that point to never have children because I didn’t want to cause anyone that level of emotional pain. Things change, we grow and we had a beautiful baby boy on January 1st 2016. He changed my world. He has brought so much joy to our lives and every day is a learning experience with him. We forget the simple joys of rain and puddles and beetles and running and grass and the moon and so much more and he has brought it all back. Sometimes I want to cry just because I love him so much. But there is always that shadow of “I’ve got 20 years for him, if I’m lucky.” Like some others have said though, I don’t resent giving him my time for one second like some younger dads might; I’ve done with my galavanting and I can give everything to him. However many years I have with him I’m going to try to make them his happiest and in doing so they’ll be mine too.

In short, it’s natural to worry about it and sometimes it will make you cry, but that’s okay and you’ll both be fine. Xx
