Well that was a very, very good Megazine. Well done on thirty years. Thank you Tharg and all your droids.

Every time I think about the audacity of LAWLESS THE MUSICAL, I chuckle to myself. Just sheer genius idea that is brilliantly executed. Who'd have thought we'd ever have to write "The writer, artist, letterer, singers and musicians knocked it of the park on this episode"?
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

It's amazing how Wagnery a Wagner Dredd is, great art too, superb.

MegaTropolis, good intro, It will be interesting to see where this goes, much prefer this to 'world Judge' stories. Fantastic art, reminded me of Warren mags for some reason.

I love Mike Carrolls world building and the art is great, I'd be happy to see this as a semi permanent feature like Lawless.

Anderson was a decent one off, low key. Big event Anderson stories never work for me, I much prefer the investigative stories, like the Possessed. I'd like to see where McHugh could take Anderson.

The Returners, I'm on the fence. Loved the first series, not so much the second. Spencer is a great writer and the art is lovely too. Wait and see!

Deliverance, not my cuppa. Frazer was the last time I think I enjoyed the DJ's properly, the DOC appearance was fun, but we never really got how they got away from PJ. It has it fans and tbf it's well written and drawn, just not for me.

Lawless was just great, like something from mid eighties W&G Dredd. The depth and quality of the world that the creators have made is on show when they can pull a story like this off.

Dave Hunt interview-  Dave is a great guy, nice interview and great to see him getting the recognition he deserves.

The Floppy, I rarely read them, (unless old or Treasury ones)  and then do a binge at Christmas. I was ambivalent when I heard about this, but its not bad, lot of stuff I had forgotten about! The only think I could say, more images!

Overall a great Meg, it has always struggles a bit with its identity. It has a good core of stories for the future Dredd, Lawless, Anderson, Carroll's proto Dredd world and Anderson if done well. A non Dredd world strip would be good too.

I haven't been able to stop humming the LAWLESS tunes. I don't think a story has ever ingrained itself into me this way before.

Oh-oh! Maybe I actually have been denying myself. Maybe I like musical theatre more than Judge Dredd?
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

Great Meg, folks! You’ve done us proud. Here’s to the next thirty years!

Finally got round to listening along to Lawless and now feel foolish for complaining about "songs in comics". That was brilliant! #VoteLawson
