Thanks, Bolt-01 -- I hadn't seen that yet!

Also I hadn't read Henry's contribution to the interview -- he's far too modest, that lad!

It's a great wee interview.

Really looking forward to it, and loving the colour on the art.

I have read the interview about Proteus Vex and I am intrigues by the story and naturally the return of Mister Flint.

Now some oil on the simmering fire of animosity against the regen prog, since vex will be running for 10 episodes the regen will not be a natural break but rather a interrupt break.  >:D >:D >:D

Actually, the interview (which was conducted a few months ago) is a tad out of date: Proteus Vex was written as ten episodes of five pages, but it was only last week that I learned that Tharg had decided to run the first ten pages as episode one in prog 2162, which means that the series is now only nine episodes long!

So that strip, at least, will be done by the time the first Regened comes along in 2170. Great to hear.

Oh you might not want to start that conversation. Overall its not be well recieved at all, The odd exceptions aside. I personally really liked the Mega City Zero and Blessed Earth stuff but it was a very different take on the character.

It wasnt well received by Dreddheads, but they must be doing something right in Trumpland if its getting another outing.
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

My take:

Judge Dredd (Swierczynski): Initially unremarkable, and then unreadable.
Judge Dredd – Year One: Matt Smith penned. Quite good.
Mars Attacks Judge Dredd: Totally ridiculous and a lot of fun.
Judge Dredd – Mega City Two: Incomprehensible
Judge Dredd – Anderson, Psi-Division: More Smith. Decent enough.
Judge Dredd – Mega City Zero: It’s not Dredd. Moreover, it’s also not good.
Judge Dredd – The Blessed Earth: Just don’t do it, kids.
Judge Dredd: Under Siege (Mark Russell): Run of the mill. Comes across like iffy era Meg fodder.

There’s also Deviations, which I’ve entirely forgotten (despite owning it and it being McCrea) and the Paul Jenkins-scripted Toxic, which I skim-read after it became obvious it was going to be another US Dredd that faffs about with everything but doesn’t make it better.

It wasnt well received by Dreddheads, but they must be doing something right in Trumpland if its getting another outing.
Well enough, at least. You could take the view that most of this stuff just isn’t for us. It’s an attempt to repackage and rethink Dredd for an unfamiliar audience. And if you’ve already got plenty of proper Dredd, why bother? I’d make exceptions: as noted, Mars Attacks is entertainingly batshit, and the Matt Smith stuff is good. Other than that, why put yourself through the pain?

I see!

Thanks, chaps!

And a million thank you's to IP - really appreciate that!

There seems to be very little info on them on the net (as far as I've looked).

Must admit, that Zama art looks very nice indeed.
