Three years is a blink of an eye these days!

Surely most of today's readers were reading the Meg three years ago? Do we really need Havn reprinted so soon? It's not as if there's a shortage of alternatives.
I've not read it, for one. Only went combo sub last year.

I definitely agree with you that the compressed nature of the storytelling, particular the rather "WTF?" im media res opener didn't help it. Also, you have to be in your 50s to remember anything other than the Leopard from Lime Street from your childhood. It was slightly surreal to buy a comic in my late 40s and think, "maybe this is intended for an older audience than me"!


I'm under 50 and remembered the Leopard from Lime Street and Death Wish.  None of the others meant anything to me other than possibly having read their names in articles.  Having them all shoved together in one comic (for me) was like watching the Avengers or Justice League films without ever having seen or read anything involving the characters previously.

Live breaking news from PJ Holden's live drawing show - he's already working on a new 4 part Chimpsky story. And Kenneth Niemand is ... nah he didn't mention that...

Think we're creeping into 2021 territory now - but will add here anyway.

More from the Treasury (actually do these count as Treasury?) some new "Fleetway Picture Library Classics” - via the Thrillmail and Downthetubes

Also from the Thrillmail a 'Thrills of the Future' I don't think (?) we've seen for more Angelic - coming to the Meg some time - which is very good news.

Annoyed the piss out of my Icelandic wife too.

Confused the f*** out of me.  Maybe worth another shot.

I mentioned to her there was finally a Dredd tale set in Iceland. “It’d better not have fucking Huldufólk in it.”

Oh.

Would you rather have the Soul Sisters?  :lol:

Shaky Kane is never not interesting tbf.
If I'd known it was harmless I would have killed it myself.

Not sure where this should really go, but I've not seen anything about it here (apologies if discussed to death beyond the scope of my Search skills)- but TALKINGPICTURESTV ran an advert for the upcoming Ian Kennedy and Hugo Pratt Treasury of British Comics collections, complete with animated Kennedy artwork.

In the last ad break during the third episode of Quatermass last Tuesday (final episode is on tomorrow night).

Great to see- though I did have to briefly return my tv screen to 16:9 ratio to watch, as for some reason TalkingPicturesTV doesnt automatically switch like others do, which is annoying.

Also noticed that the "bagged with the Megazine" 421 will be the Vigilant: Origins, ("by Tom Tully, Eric Bradbury, Frank Pepper, Donnie Avenell and more")

I probably said when the first one came out - we could have done with something like that earlier, for all of us who aren't old enough to be familiar with the multitude of characters who got smashed together.

That makes it sound like there's a new series of Quatermass?  Or am I misreading it?
