Deadworld. Is also losing me. Who is Tanya?

Think we’ve only seen Ava before. 

If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

Love McCarthy's art (normally) but he's another casualty of the digital painting revolution, this cover is not a patch on when paints, with paint..

Still enjoying Durham Red, not that impressed with the rest of this week's offerings.

The prog somehow feels a bit in the doldrums at the moment. I don’t think there’s anything objectively bad in it but it could do with a high-energy strip to lift things a bit.

The Cover is garish and ugly. Add me to the list of people who preferred McCarthy before he went digital.

Dredd was very by-the-numbers. It wasn’t bad but felt a bit like filler, which is something Dredd should never be. I think Dave Taylor is a good artist but his Judges look weedy and I find his colours bland and dull.

Skip Tracer is fine, I like the artwork but I can’t help feeling the strip is missing something. It has potential though.

The Order is enjoyably weird and bonkers but I find it hard to follow. John Burns’s art is always nice but he’s drawn a rather dodgy hand on page 1, panel 3.

I want to like Durham Red but, like Skip Tracer, I feel it’s missing something. I wonder why this is a story the author wants to tell. It’s just a bit boring.

Damned is excellent, by far the best thing in the prog. It’s very much a downer strip though, which is why I feel we need a fast paced, up beat strip to balance things out.
