Some real treats in the Rebellions September solicitations:

https://www.bleedingcool.com/2018/06/21/2000ad-rebellion-september-2018-solicits/

Great line-up in Prog 2100 with Kingdom back, Brink back, Skip Tracer bac... oh hold on it it go? Anyway and Fiends of the East Front back with an intriguing premise - do we know the creative team for this one?

Elsewhere the Meg gets a shiny 400th issue too with Lawless and Blunt amongst the treats.

We get another Misty volume - I'd missed this was happening but that might just be me being rubbish? Sniper Elite gets a great Colin Wilson cover, can we have more Colin Wilson please Tharg

BUT for me the biggest news in this month of pretty big stuff I'd say is the floppie with Meg 400 is Mind Wars - never read it but can't wait to get my hands on more Redondo goodness!

I've seen a few Jinty ads lately - looks like the resurrection of 1970s/1980s British children's comics is continuing apace.

That's good news about Mind Wars, it was excellent and deserves to find a new audience.

Hopefully for Fiends we get some black and white Colin MacNeil art similar to his Defoe work

Also looking forward to Mind Wars

Did anyone else's heart sink when it was noted that Skip Tracer was coming back :(? I can't miss you if you're not gone.

Spoiler: I don't think I'll miss Skip Tracer anyway.  :(

That said, looking forward to the returns of Lawless, Brink, and Fiends of the Eastern Front!!!

The new Fiends of the Eastern Front strip sounds very intriguing.

I actually enjoy it. Maybe some patience to see how the series develops. Hopefully the keep the combo of Marshall/Teague on art duty

That's the problem, it's not developing...at all. I have never seen a story work so hard to go nowhere, the art is very good though.

Not keen on Skip Tracer so far but good in Tharg's for finally taking heed of the eternal criticism and scheduling a quick follow up to a new strip.

More importantly, I had no idea Peter Capaldi was an artist in a formerlife.

I was completely unaware of this one brilliant way to check if I had PPI.

Skip Tracer's by-the-numbers stuff, but I'd rather see something new not quite work than new creators put on old strips getting by on name recognition.

I also agree that Ewan McGregor would be the most disappointing thing about an Obi-Wan Kenobi film, too, but there's no way I'm jumping into that thread. *


* A lot of very deep-seated issues being worked out there, and when the dust settles nobody involved will ever be quite the same person they were before:  https://youtu.be/T5XYNQv6F_o?t=38s

Peter Capaldi is a pretty damn good artist in his current life.

Pretty sure he didnae draw for Misty, though.

I'm going to have to fully agree with you there.

Rico Dredd: The Titan Years Paperback  – 4 Apr 2019

Original fiction featuring the story of Judge Dredd’s evil twin Rico’s years on Titan, finally revealed.

You know about me. I’m Rico Dredd, Joe Dredd's big brother.

I'm the clone that went bad, that brought shame on Judge Fargo's legacy.

I was a Judge, the best the Academy of Law ever turned out. The very best. But after less than a year on the streets of Mega-City One, I was brought down, taken in. It was Little Joe who caught me; second-best Judge there’s been.

Broken, sentenced, stripped of office, I was shipped out to the brutal moon Titan, to do my twenty years' hard labour. Yeah, you know about Rico Dredd.

But do you know what really happened? Why I did it? What it was like, out there on the edge of space, doing time in the Bronze?

Truth is, mister, you know stomm about me.
