I wonder if it went first class because you are a sub?

Typical dom thinking.

What is Dom thinking?

Anyway, it hasn’t arrived yet so I’m guessing it’s lost in the post.  Second class stuff seems to fail to get here more often than it arrives these days.  Terrible service.

Speaking as a postman who has a prog subscriber on my route, I can confirm that I delivered the latest issue on Saturday so they must have gone out.

A good Prog but as others have said, not very Christmassy.

Dredd now seems to be in the middle of an epic (of the new style of interlinked stories).

Uncle Pat shows he can still write good stuff with ABC Warriors and especially Savage.

I think it is time to stop Bad Company and ACE Trucking. Wrt to Bad Company, unless I have missed it, we still haven’t had an explanation as to how come everyone is still alive.

Brass Sun and Deadworld are of the expected standard.

The Starlord story was ok. For me you can either take it as a joke or a comment on fake news or the way stories are portrayed based on your point of view.

I really liked the 40 year reflections Some of those chosen are also in my list of favourite moments. Others I had forgotten and this served to bring back great memories.

Was the female General in Brass Sun meant to look like German Chancellor Angela Merkel??


I can't be the only person who noticed the D.R. and Quinch cameo in the ACE Trucking story

I spotted DR & Quinch too - they’re just behind Nemesis, emerging from the shadows!

Not really moved by the Christmas prog this year - like someone else has asked, how are Bad Co still alive? And more importantly, WHY? If you’re gonna bring back a much loved strip, at least make it a damn good story that enhances the original, rather than dilutes it.

Oh good, the lyrics are back in Savage. Just when I was beginning to enjoy it too.

Everything else just seemed.... ok. Maybe I was just hoping for some Stronty.

Oh, and CHOPPER DIED AT THE END OF SUPERSURF 10!!!






....just sayin’ 😉
Never ever bloody anything ever

I didn't notice Nemesis, probably cos I was so surprised at seeing DR and Quinch  :lol:

Prog arrived last night so I've just caught up with the Thread...

As year end progs go this was one of my faves in recent years.

I've got to disagree with folks not liking the ACE Trucking strip- this was the first one that IMO hit the spot. Eddie Robsons script was almost spot on for me (I always see Ace as similar to Sam Slade, he thinks he's got a plan but it always goes pears-up and he has to wing it) but Nigel's art was just sublime. Yeah, he's not Massimo, but no-one is. Nigel shouldn't even try to mimic Massimo's style, just be himself.

Thought the Dredd was a solid hit- but then I expect nothing less from the creative team.

I'm sure there's more to say, but right now that's all I wanted to rant about...

I went out to the shops and bought my Chrimbo special. Not bad but not my favourite among Chrimbo issues of the past few years.

I'm still getting over the brilliant Dredd take on the snowman of last year(?). Boy that sat with me for some time for reasons I am still not quite sure of.
