If anyone fancies it - and in these times many might - a job for Tharg.

Can anyone spot the wonderfully ironic mistake here...

...while acknowledging the wonderful irony of me pointing out such a mistake... or is that hypocrasy...

I do not want to burst your bubble, Judge Olde but there is still two more this year (prog 2196 and 2206)

Well done that man for keeping on asking! An excellent bit of news. Sad there's no War Machine though.

The cover & the advert for next week are about the best things about this. Dredd & Anderson were ok, nothing special. The rest really just seems inconsistent. Strontium Dog was poor. I don't like the idea of the take over of the prog. If they were just 'specials' I'd not bother to buy them. I'd be glad if this was the last of these.

Prog / Prog 2184 - Regened. Five Knockout Thrills.
« Last post by Tjm86 on Today at 01:12:51 PM »
I have to be honest, up until now I've been slightly more than a little ambivalent about the Regened Progs.  When we were told how many there were going to be this year I was slightly less than impressed.  So I have to be honest this latest effort has gone some way to change my view.

Robinson's cover is his usual sterling standard and the strips stand up well this time round.  Even Finder and Keeper which up 'til now hasn't really clicked for me kept me interested for the duration.  The Future Shock worked reasonably well, a nice little setup and denouement.  Nothing amazing but then again some of the early FS's could be quite unimpressive at times.

The headline strips, Dredd, Strontium Dog and Anderson were far stronger to be sure.  I would have to say that Carrol has definitely established proof of concept for a Young Alpha semi-regular series.  Dredd gives a nice nod to early continuity whilst Scott and Davidson take an interesting concept out for a spin.  A nice little chuckle as well with the "Baxendale's Academy for Young Delinquents."

So all in this has shifted me.  I'm interested in whether this is part of a longer, slower strategy to establish Regened as a more regular offering separate from the Prog.  Certainly it shows the potential for greater regularity and a chance to establish some of the characters whilst fleshing out newer ones.  I'm definitely far more optimistic about the next Regened prog now.

Wow that's a cracking list. 

Sad we're not getting the end of Kingdom or Stickleback - guess I'll have to get the standard trades to round those out.  No more Sinister Dexter which feels like a shame, especially as that's unavailable elsewhere (although I note there's been a chunk reprinted in the Meg over the years so maybe I'll grab those from the digital sale when it gets to the relevant years). And only 1 more Dredd is a surprise, I guess they didn't want to canibalise the normal trade sales too much but it would have been nice to have Guatemala and Machine Law in a HC edition.

Really happy to see 2 volumes of Brink. I'm hoping they can do 2 arcs per book so we can get everything to date.  I think those should fit according to Barney it'd be:
Vol1: Brink (75) + Skeleton Life (90) = 165
Vol2: High Society (100) + Hate Box (101) = 201

I'm excited to read Red Seas, Firekind and Indigo Prime - it seems these are really highly regarded by many on here so I have high expectations.

And called it on the early stuff with Flesh, VCs and Fiends all making the cut.

The other big question is what the content of the Flesh volume will be. Very happy with the current edition I own but depending on what else is included - assuming of course Books 1 and 2 are in it might make this a purchase.

Based on strip page counts Books 1 and 2 would be my expectation. Book 1 is 87 pages and book 2 is 78 giving us 165 pages of strip which will fit nicely.

His grubby little child's mind must be spinning furiously right now - he's having to use Twitter to attack Twitter.

What a thought. Imagine the thought process and the sheer insecurities that drive the little turd bucket.

He is pushing the Shadow ban conspiracy, and I'd love it to be true, because then I wouldn't have to read his shite, and that of the rest of the right-wing grifters that seem to live on Twitter.

Wow, a great selection of stuff for the extension. 111 volumes though? Will there be more?

Really pleased they're giving John Smith a chunk of it, not before time - Leatherjack would fit nicely with Firekind, although personally, as I already have a trade of Leatherjack, I'd love to see Revere paired up with it.

Has Tyranny Rex ever been collected in trade before?
