My favourite bit might be the John Titor reference.

"The little Dalek that could ..... Exterminate" banner.

Now that would make for an interesting children book!   :o

Why so many monkeys?

Dredd: Safe hands, and some good world building, highly enjoyable.

Skip Tracer sorry but strikes me that this would have won the Pitchfest bingo prize.

Survival Geeks Enjoying this, even if most of the refs go over my head.


Deadworm This is really starting to grow on me, raiding the Dreadworld back catalogue and shaking it up: goodie are baddie etc  and we can see what's going on now except for Ba'sheid who does scare me.

Durham Red not quite as was promised but promising...

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


The strange thing I've noticed about Thargs missives and especially this one glaringly, he's reeling off a list of what's in the prog, next to a big old list of what's in the prog...  which is next to the Dredd story, which is in the prog...

I'm never a great fan of the contents page at the best of times as a space filler and Thargs messages dearly need a bit of umph methinks, tell us what's up and coming, what's happened to the 2nd part of Helium or (a long shot I know) Stickleback!  ;)

In the second series of Helium, nice Mr D'Israeli is bumped off and replaced by the sinister Lord Trevallion:

Both of them are great, although quite different styles.

Back to the present: I really like these covers where it is a journey of discovery of different characters

Great Prog this week.

Don’t know if it’s just me but Skip Tracer felt like it skipped a bit from the end of last week’s episode.

Really enjoyed this week prog all strips for me was just great. I am enjoying the the intrigue in the current Dredd strip. The new-look for Durham  Red works for me.

With all the geek references on the cover we are 2 pages into this thread and nobody has mentioned the nod to the cover of Prog 509 in Durham Red. Call yourselves squaxx?
