Wish that SinDex wasn't coloured because Steve Yeowell's black and whites are so beautiful.

I prefer Yeowell's inks alone, but he's working halftone here. Stevie Owl posts the originals of all his 2000ad work every week on social media:

Yes, Yoewell's B&W is great but I do like they colouring of Charles. It does suits the story.

Split on the Mighty Yeowell's current work. Its lovely and I really enjoy the look and feel it gives the story... is it as good as his line work... dunno.... its just different I think.

Anyway just like preferences for the Might Yeowell's art the Prog, as I've said before, can be about the fine margins. While last weeks was an absolute classic this weeks is a little, little, weaker.

Dredd is just as glorious as the opener as the knot tightens around Barbarbara Grimm.

Sinister Dexter is fine but its about as set up as set up can be.

Indigo Prime is as fantastic as ever.

3rillers Red Road is the same as last week, which in this case is a problem. Its fantastic blistering action but with no real context and only an episode to go it now runs the risk of becoming an enlongated Future Shock dress in  a fight scene. Lets see what the last episode provides us. Still a fun read mind.

Jaegir is fantastic as the knot tighten around... well a few folks actually.

And its those find margins that can take a great Prog down to a good Prog even when its a 5-4-5.

Indeed! Writing and Artwork being equally outstanding; I can't get enough of this strip and I hope we see more in the future!

At the risk of invoking some sort of angry dancing - I'm not a fan of Sinister Dexter. When it first started I thought it was pretty good. One Long Walk later, I returned and it was still going. Except it had some Dimension-Hopping Ninjas', or something, followed by a reboot. No thanks!

Cheers

There should be a separate thread for no prog complaints. They're not relevant to the review threads.

(This is not a dig at 73north.)

Doesn't sound like the thrillingest of threads.

You should give the Ultimate Collection thread a go...!

I've pretty much given up reviewing the books there, lost as they soon are in the deluge of '44/45 finally turned up, but still waiting on 42/43.'

Disagree, Its good to know you're not alone without the prog, or if there has been a major attack by the Dictators and the whole of Cal-Hab is progless...

Agreed. Whenever my prog's late, I always check the review post to see if I'm the only one!

Dredd is just as glorious as the opener as the knot tightens around Barbarbara Grimm.

Sinister Dexter Cant help but feel other droids could have done that five page set up in one panel...

Indigo Prime is same as ever...

3rillers Red Road is the same as last week, which in this case is a problem. Its fantastic blistering action but with no real context and only an episode to go it now runs the risk of becoming an enlongated Future Shock dress in  a fight scene. Lets see what the last episode provides us.

Damage Report! Wow, which droids have been sold?  :o
