Quince must be the plural form of (Banjo) Quint

The Sunday Telegraph piece is fascinating - although who uses words like "benison"? (and it wasn't a Judge Dredd T-shirt anyway!)

Honestly not sure whether this is something you all need to sit down for or if it's the equivalent of telling someone that Spock's mum was called T'Pau.




My excuse is that I'd never tasted a quince in the eighties, and certainly didn't know they looked a little like mishapen heads. I got the mince connection, obviously, since mince (boiled until it was grey) was the default dinner option for every Scottish mum between WWII and the fall of the Berlin wall.

Should have known; Wagner and Grant were partial to a bit of Quince. *

I just started issue 38 Aquila. I never read this in the original issues but was always a fan on Black Hawk in the Tornado years so thought it would be my thing, which it is.

In the intro bumpf at the beginning it suggests that the story has not been completed to this day.

Is this correct?  Is it a series that is likely to be cropping up again in the pages of 2thou? Or is it something that faded away?

The end where they disappear into a black hole?  Nope, nothing else after that.

This is why we need more SD in the prog.

Prog / Re: Prog 2131 - The Ape of Good Hope

well my prog finally arrived this Tuesday - along with the meg and the following week's prog all on the same day!

Excellent Dredd (including the awesome cover) - I heard an intriguing theory about who Niemand was at Lawless, and having now read this I think it's extremely plausible, but if it's true there's a very good reason why he's anonymous, so I won't share it.

Enjoying everything else in the prog, and it's a good variety of strips. Kingmaker steps out of the action for some worldbuilding, but still interesting; I'm loving Max Normal (does everybody in Dreddworld have to have an ape buddy though? It's getting a bit cliche), I especially like the design of the psychotic juvies.

Reckon I need to do that Scarlet Traces re-read as I have trouble remembering what went before, but I'm still thoroughly enjoying it.

Hard to judge the 3hriller until we can be sure it doesn't suffer from the "disappointing third part" syndrome, but a nice opener

Seems Rebellion are having a push. From Diamond Retail Summit via Bleeding Cool

Be interesting to see how this pans out and what inspired the choice?

Shouldn't Scarlet Traces be moved out of creator owned now?

Dinosty is listed under the separate heading "Pat Mills Creations" and unfortunately the categorisation is 1:1 rather than 1:n.

Sorry to hear about your relationship difficulties *


* see what I did there? ;)
