I think the frequency critisim is valid, but taking into account the scale of what has been achieved, a new comic featuring featuring classic Fleetway characters on the newsagents shelves is remarkable. Hopefully sales will be enough to increase the frequency.

Think of it more as an appeal to see this more frequently- I would like to support it by buying it and hope it does well.

Nick Landau interview interesting and respectful of his co-workers t the time, which isn't everyone version!

Multi-millionaires can afford to be chill and magnanimous. I don't think I've previously read the detail that Gosnell had basically subcontracted the Dredd strip to Landau, which explains (i) the sudden ubiquity of his pal, Bolland.

Interesting observation about Anderson; it hadn't occurred to me that this, like the most recent 2000ad stories, teams Granderson with substitute leads who do all the heavy lifting. I suppose it's just a relief to be able to tell what's going on.

This has four more pages to play with than the 2000ad version, but even if you'd split this episode in half it'd still read more smoothly than the prog story. This is mince and tatties stuff, which maybe matches the beats of The Hotdog Run (ii) a little too closely.


(i) There's Bolland's incredible, unique talent and obvious star potential, too. I suppose that had something to do with it, maybe

(ii) Cadets screw up lookout duty and lifting the body of a slain Cursed Earth bushwhacker

Terrifying. As a borderline hypochondriac, though, I've convinced myself I had cancer many, many times. This one, though, I was certain about.  I'll take the sore hand any day.

Glad to hear about the All-Clear, Jayzus.  :) I thought that the following Woody Allen gag from his stand-up days might appeal to you.

Eggs Benedict


I had once a pain in the chestal area. Now, I was sure it was heartburn, y'know, 'cause at that time I was married and my wife cooking with her nazi recipies, y'know, chicken Himmler.

I didn't wanna pay twenty five bucks to have it reaffirmed by some medic, that I had heartburn. But I was worried 'cause it was in the chestal area. Then it turns out my friend, Eggs Benedict, has a pain in his chestal area, in the same exact spot. I figured if I could get Eggs to go to the doctor, I could figure out what was wrong with me, at no charge, so I con Eggs.

He goes.

Turns out he's got heartburn.

Cost him twenty five dollars, and I feel great, 'cause I figured I beat the medic out of twenty five big ones, y'know. Called up Eggs two days later - he died.

I check into a hospital immediately, have a battery of test run and x-rays. Turns out I got heartburn. Cost me a hundred and ten dollars. Now I'm furious.

I run to Eggs' mother, and I say: "Did he suffer much?" And she said: "No, it was quick. Car hit him and that was it."

This came as part of the Tammy/Jinty/Cor/Buster bundle, but I've no interest in it after the ++DIPLOMACY EMITTERS TO MAXIMUM++ underwhelming Death Man stories and never seeing the first issue anywhere for sale, so it's gone unread.
TBH I'm not fussed about the mashup format, despite loving these characters.  Glad others are getting something out of it, tho.

Wow. Earthlet art has come a long way since the bog-paper Nerve Centre days, hasn't it?

The Pit with Stacey Whittle

Looking forward to this one - I remember one of the first ECBT review podcasts that Stacey did with Iz .. she won me over with her comment (add Geordie accent for full effect) "Just look at Dredd in that panel - he looks like he needs a reet big hug"  :lol:

I really enjoyed this, although I might be a bit biased, I got to write the text feature at the end of the comic!

So great to see all of the characters back on print, and see the older Fleetway characters like Archie and Cursitor Doom drawn into the Vigilant - verse.

I think the frequency critisim is valid, but taking into account the scale of what has been achieved, a new comic featuring featuring classic Fleetway characters on the newsagents shelves is remarkable. Hopefully sales will be enough to increase the frequency.

Why does this comic deserves support? Simple, its a bloody good comic!

I only know the name (and I assume I'm not the only one) because of the song Like Leila Khaled Said by The Teardrop Explodes. A band who famously took their name from Silver Surfer. My general feelings on current Indigo Prime mirror Tordelback's but, while I don't like it one bit, this is a level of cross-media, meta-fictional, reality-hopping I can admire.

I was never sure if the guest vocalist on this old Rob 'n' Raz classic was am agent of and extra-dimensional security firm or if only Billy Ray Martin had that distinction: Got to Get (ft. Leila K)...
