Prog 2083 - Fame in the fifth dimension
« on: 26 May, 2018, 01:36:54 pm »
Prog is still good - great. Not really much change from last week really.

Oh and I should say while I'm far from Survival Geeks biggest fan but it certainly gives good cover! Enjoy the cosplay spotfest that is the back cover.

Inside Dredd continues to skillfully build a wonder adventure dripping with intrigue. Enjoying watching this make reveal... well we don't know but I'm enjoying not knowing.

Skip Tracer still building well but it needs to make me connect with the led soon or its going to just be a series of fiun events and I might drift off. Still has time and still building its story well but I did notice this week I'm pretty unengaged by the led at this point.

Survival Geeks had some cute moments but also at time felt too twee pastiche of references. Its so okay.

Deadworld on the other hand is defo pastiche but by heck its bloody a romping one. Its not doing anything new but its not doing anything new soooo well.

Durham Red not quite as good as last time but by George it gives us our mission, throws in action and fun character and sets a nice atmosphere for next time. I means its not doing a bad job in 5 pages is it. Great stuff.

So yeah strong Prog and a nice summation of why 2000ad is the Galaxies Greatest from Tharg in the Nerve Centre

Quote
That's the 2000ad experience and its a reaction no other anthology [he should just have said comic here] can instil in its readership. Excitment, dislocation, unease, joy... its not unknown to run the whole gamut of emotions whilst consuming a single Prog.

Ahem Tharg, ahem.

Who are the two guys with green bats/containers far left on the rear?

I also think we have Spock and Sulu from Star Trek 4 and Uhura and short sleeve Kirk from some episode or other?

Booster Gold has Skeets with him as well.

11th Doc Who and is that the Time Bandits on the poster... it must be right.

I'm also going for Bill Murray from Ground Hog day as he has some kinda ground hog on his shoulder... this one is a punt

Lola Rennt, offering (terrible) financial advice, Ziggy from Quantum Leap, and the guy from that meme I don't understand.

If you mean the kid with the baseball cap, that's surely an alt-verse Ash Ketchum and Pikachu...? Puxatawney Phil is represented on one of the banners on't ceiling.

As Tomwe says, that's the kid from Flight Of The Navigator. You're not missing anything.

I'm going to be the guy who takes the shame-hit for commenting on the fact that Tom Baker has a woman's breasts, my Lord.

Once you click through three pages of hentai, Google suggests school girl + satchel + red bike = The Girl Who Leapt Through Time. Hawkmumbler can confirm.

If you can hear the theme tune now then you may be as old as me.
