So much catching up to do in the land of Oo.

I've been watching Castle Rock, it's pretty good. Definitely the best Stephen King TV series since Nightmares & Dreamscapes.

Is that the first portrayal of the Bat's bat?

I've just picked up Ice Cream Man from Image, weird little vignettes of surreal horror featuring some sort of Flagg/IT type character. Good stuff though not sure where it's going to go!

Timeline check:  Ian’s last 2000AD work was in 2008. The topless HJ kerfuffle was in 2013.

Therefore, whatever went wrong with his 2000AD relationship happened well before then.

Hershey was 38 as far as i can remember in the cal files, she kind of looks the same now. Shouldn't she look more like a woman in her 50s? can't imagine a judge would would be too bothered about looking more mature.

and if you think that's iffy, check out Anderson in Megazine 400... 40 years fight the worse mentalist in MC1 and she looks ready for Freshers Week  :-\

Regarding that cover, and more specifically that strapline: "flowed", surely?

SBT

Indeed.

Caught up on the rest of the Megazine:

Anderson: that intro page should have ben a clue to the fact she should no longer look like a Manga teenager sigh Also I cringed at Mr Grants use of Anderson in her undies FFS any excuse!!

Torture Garden had some healthy suspense and my old peepers just need to adjust to the face that the background are the same colour as the characters...even the ones on fire  :-X

Storm Warning was a nice set up...

Normally I'd be in favour of having one of 2000AD's most prolific and brilliant artists return to the Prog.

But we're talking about someone who once drew a pair of tits! Gen-u-ine mammary glands.

Is that the kind of artist we want in 2000AD in 2018? Won't someone think of the children, etc?

The stupid gun was also a bizarre reverse-Chekov

Heh.

Great prog, sometimes the ones before jumping-on editions are a bit flat and filler-ridden but no such problems here

Dredd opens with a satisfyingly meaty first couple of pages. And you know what, I'm gonna say that TC Eglington knows exactly what he's doing having Dredd leave Linus out in the Cursed Earth (and the reporters at large) - because there are further twists to come.

Look, I'm a glass-half-full kinda guy!

SG has more very welcome gore and finishes the story with a nice flourish, even though I was hoping for a bit more backstory from some of the Slashers.

And after the first one only appeared at the end of last week's installment, this time round Sam's socks gain a second stripe. Am I missing a reference..?

Mechastopheles has been a joy to read, an ingenious fusion of thrills, humour and of course great artwork. Surely this isn't the end?!

Oh that's a nasty little Future Shock, a great riff on the old theme of time-looping. I love the idea of an internment facility where the personnel can act with impunity because it's classified as 'not in our dimension'!

Finally, not the final panel that those who dislike The Order will want to see! Personally I'm up for more but I do think this book has lost a bit of focus. Perhaps the next one should bring it to a conclusion..?

Right, that's it. I am now officially in Jumping On Mode.

Saw a ripped poodle today. Not just one of those tall poodles, some kind of crossbreed. Totally hench, but still looked like Terry McDermott.

One of Rorschach's lesser known journal entries.
