I don't have a prog to hand at the moment, but the current running total for MC1 appears in the Nerve Centre every week.

Shall keep an eye on it!

Recap of the year's deaths - there's a few I either missed or have forgotten about there.  Not a good year for children's TV or punk/post-punk/new wave music, amongst other spheres.

On a related note, blaming the upper classes for Brexit (or anti-immigration) is just odd as all get out, given that the referendum was won by over 50%.  They're hardly upper class if they make up over half the country.

The leave vote don't make up over half the country (and the referendum wasn't won by over 50%).  37% of the electorate voted leave, 35% voted remain.  That's after the right to vote was taken away from many people (due to recent reforms to the electoral system).

The catwoman from Meltdown Man is Liana!

Funnily enough I was playing Black & White yesterday - when my pet cat grows up they're going to be like tiger commander :-)

I'm not sure how much the law has changed but listening to the Levellers' Julie EP with its section on the 1994 Criminal Justice and Public Order Bill, I think we really missed something this year.  Boris' offer to lie in front of the Bulldozers at Heathrow when they move in is apparently a criminal offence courtesy of his own party.  So basically when he made that statement he was committing to the execution of a criminal offence?

Pretty sure he got away with worse while he was mayor (dodgy deals, selling off prime land to his mates at knock-down prices, etc).  Not to mention his pre-mayoral career.

That last page of Lawless pure brilliance. It reminds me of a classic cover:

I'm thinking of an earlier centre spread...

Grand story in Dredd this month- but surely everything pales in light of Lawless...

Must have watched too much TV to get square eyes like that ;-)

A few more minutes then a second weekend, until Thursday.  Shall probably contribute more to this forum than during a normal work week, to be honest!

Also: this may have been asked somewhere before, but is this the first time a thrill has continued both before and after the bumper Christmas edition? (Brink)

I seem to remember “Origins” did that, but definitely unusual. I appreciate that they’re letting Dan Abnett take his time with “Brink”. Great stuff.

One of the Prog 2010s had Part Three of Judge Dredd: Tour of Duty: Gore City.  One of the Prog 2011s had Part Two of Kingdom: As it is in Heaven.

The spiel in the Nerve Centre says it follows on from his battle with the Drune Lords on the Isle of Monadh.

Also, New Troy and Britannia wouldn't have existed before the flood which occurred in The Horned God.

Not 100 per cent sure about the ending (Baba Yaga is Danu then?) 

Both Baba Yaga and Danu are different aspects of the Triple Goddess (Danu would be the mother goddess and Yaga the Crone).  You obviously haven't been revising your comparative religions lately!

And not content with being featured in the most iconic comic panel of all time, Fear now makes a bid to feature in the second best.

I give up - what's the second best panel of all time?

Paddy Ashdown, former Royal Marine, ex-leader of the Liberal Democrats, 77.
