We saw Fear in the first run of Deadworld though, interrogating some poor sod in the most hideous of ways.

Well there goes that theory!

My memory of it is a bit hazy, but wasn't that set after all the current stuff was going on?

No, it was during the events of the communications collapse, when Fairfax realised Justice Dept wheren't going to send back up because the DJ's had taken over, Fear was seen amongst the Four usual suspects doing what he does.

I'm not surprised - I am absolutely terrible at guessing twists and plot developments  (or anything really - I remember confidently predicting that text messaging and bottled water would never take off in this country!).

Just remembered my other great prediction of which I was so certain - that being bought by a computer games company would lead to the demise of 2000ad as it became full of cynical game tie-ins and crappy fillers while they exploited the IP in opther areas. Never have I been happier to be proved 100% wrong!

HA! even by my standards that's a good un. What I meant to say was FACEBOOK was just another Internet fade.

I'm such a dickwad!

I really like it, the work that Dave puts into the concept art is astonishing, worthy of a book by itself.

I watched the Dave Kendall from the drawing board video today- very interesting. I would recommend checking it out for those interested in how the artists do their work.

So far it's been pretty bad ass, I missed the first bit though and have to back track.

I asked for and received an excellent Fairfax sketch from Dave at the 40th:

I was a bit iffy about 'Dreams of Deadworld' when it first appeared because horror-for-horror's sake/Walking Dead-esque horror doesn't normally gel with me but next to 'Jaegir', 'Lawless' and 'The Order', 'The Fall of Deadworld' is one of the best things coming out of the House of Tharg at the moment.

Sure, I'm rooting for Fairfax and Jess to survive even though Kek-W agreed with me at the 40th that "it isn't going to end well, is it?" but Dave (obliquely) noted as he was sketching that Fairfax is (kind of) Deadworld's version of Dredd so the optimist in me hopes that Fairfax and Cassie manage to get their hands on the dimension-jumping technology that Death & the DJs used to reach Mega-City 1, which could tie 'Fall of Deadworld' into the original 'Judge Death' serial, and escape. The realist however knows that's never going to happen.  :'(

I doubt this is likely -

SMF got rid of all the spoilered quoted stuff, so just assume this follows from the previous post, yes?

Yep, also the flesh under Judge Death's fingernails in his first appearance was said by forensics to be centuries old - unless that's a side effect of the dead fluids?

As an aside, if Fairfax is the Deadworld version of Dredd, does that mean that Cassie is our Cassandra?
