Yeah, it's all so similar to Kraken that there must be an interesting twist coming.

However, I do think Joe will respect Hershey's right to make the big decisions. There'll be no resignation blackmail or silent coups this time.

Agreed. He made it clear in Tour Of Duty that he ain't quitin' no more.
Learned his lesson during Necropolis I imagine  ::)

Cover is lovely but Harvey's Lawmaster is missing one of its three wheels.

I really like Harvey and hope nothing bad happens to him.  He's a great judge and a nice guy.

And hats off to Wagner for making the story so different from the original Mechanismo one.

Sheesh, just drive him straight to robo-Resyk yourself, why don't you.

Cover: Slick. Take the point that it's a bit monochrome but it serves to highlight the red helmet outline.

Dredd: Harvey gets better each week. Getting a real sense of... well, dread about how things are going to develop. This is part four of six, yeah? Surely there's no time to wrap this now that Mechanismo units are going to flood the streets. We must be leading into something bigger.

Defoe: A never-ending tide of ideas, as one would expect from Pat Mills. Colin MacNeil's art is beautiful - the style is weirdly like something you expect from a children's illustrator, especially the cartoonish faces, which gives the horrific material more impact.

Brink: Hypnotic once again. I'm sure things will kick off soon but I'm in no rush.

Scarlet Traces: What's going on here? Not read previous books, the precis in the Nerve Centre is no use. Not my favourite story. (Though I still prefer it to Future Shocks)

Deadworld: Love the grisly head-swapping, and that callback to the mutant family. This is fleshing out (pun intended) the world of the dark dimension in a very satisfying manner.

Strong cover this week, very reminiscent of Carl Critchlow's current style, particularly in monochrome inks.

Is it an obvious homage to another image, or do I just own too many Sons of Anarchy DVDs?

That's a great B&W image - seeing that, I do yearn for some more black and white linework in the prog.

Colour has it's place and all that, but when it starts to muddy and blanket mono colouring is favoured, I do think that it can take away so much from the inks... just my opinion of course...

It's a big part of the appeal of Lawless.

What I really liked about episode 4 of Harvey is that lesser writers would have ended the story at this point, and we'd have waited six months to find out what happened next. Wagner gives us two more episodes.
