I'm not sure I like the only bolded full words there being 'Greg' and 'virginity'.

Interesting juxtaposition there...

Bugger - now I have to post lots of Carlos Ezquerra art. Look what he's made me do, Greg:




Even when unable to do anything, Dredd dishes out more laldy in 3 panels than he's done in the last 8 weeks:




Only a madman would argue that The Starborn Thing is a great Dredd story, but Carlos classes it up as only he can. If Ezquerra had drawn The Space Girls, he'd have found some way to make it enjoyable and memorable:

You missed out 're'.  Though that brings to mind the phrase "It’s been so long since I’ve had sex that I think my virginity is growing back" so, er, as you were...

One thing everyone is forgetting is that Pin had all the cheat-codes available. She was playing the game on the easy setting and had Dredd at a disadvantage.

This is at least the third time someone has shut down Joe's peepers. An investigation into Med Div safeguards seems prudent. By someone other than the SJS.

I recall the time he was hit with an EMP and his cadet was killed so blind Dredd goes on a boot-knife frenzy (because I own that page), but what was the other?

1596-1599.

There was also a Dave Stone novel where that happened, Wetworks.

That's the EMP one, isn't it? Like TB, I can't remember the other one…

Hmmm, I wasn't thinking of the Dave Stone novel, was there not another more recent instance since the Robbie Morrison one?  I'm trying to remember specifics, beyond thinking this week wasn't the first time since the first time, but it's not happening.

A legend walks the spaces between spaces, the places that are not here but are not there: they know him as Ian Anorak Hollingsworth.

From his secret lair, he corrects all bullshit being talked about 2000ad anywhere on the internet. As his emissary, I bring news that Dredd's vision was taken out by an EMP grenade in Al Ewing and John Higgins' Served Cold (1718-1725).

Of course!  And one of my favourite 'recent' storylines too, oh the shame!  Cheers Ian and Frank!

Playing catch up and finally caught up.

After a little break, please oh mighty Tharg can we have a return to the Cabs/Absalom world? It’s been absolutely flipping brilliant!
