He bought the McMahon Dredd-In-Big-Chair cover that was recently up for auction,]

Makes me feel better about being the under-bidder on that one! I may be a comfortable Gen X'er but I can't compete with Wossy's Boomer millions!

Not me!

In the same auction, the art for the famous Crumb 'Stoned Agin' poster sold for $690,000!

There's some rich people out there who like underground stuff..

All gorgeous stuff, but those SD pages would look lovely in my new loft conversion!

Shame my bloody bank account balance won't allow it!

Keep a look out...the SD pages will be going on eBay soon. 

Firstly as a whole and then, if no buyer, individually...shame to split them but on the other hand if they all go to different owners it means five people will enjoy them rather than just one...

 That box monitoring your language and doling out fines is both comic and terrifying in equal measure!


Not what you expected one dollar fine.

Thanks Tordel, I'll be sorry to see them go but when you need the cash! Some have gone to loving homes already...

Forgot to comment on this prog, much has already been said - re McNeil's art in particular which was an absolute joy.

I'm rather in two minds about Defoe and it's art and very much enjoying Hope.   

But what struck me was the political commentary in Brink this week that actually has contemporary resonance. I've long been rather disappointed in 2000ad's rather plodding and out of date political commentary, often from Pat Mills. At least he does it I suppose... and the man who wrote Terrameks and Nemesis has my enduring affection and respect but the world being run by bowler hatted toffs in Pall Mall just doesn't cut it anymore.

So by a long and torturous route I come to the point and back to Brink. The device of the Hate/Swear Box  machine that polices language has clear relevance to today's political lansdscape and the on-going threat to free speech. Often those of an authoritarian bent, under the guise of seeking to moderate language, are actually seeking to control language, what can and cannot be discussed and therefore what people think and feel. That box monitoring your language and doling out fines is both comic and terrifying in equal measure!

Just another reason to enjoy Brink and to hope that Abnett sticks with us.

Dredd and Hope carry the prog for me, I'm sure Brink will be good but it's still only warming up again after its absence...

Will Simpson in the prog and that wonderfully written and illustrated Dredd are almost enough to allow you to overlook that revolting cover...almost.

Normally do get it on Saturday, but I'm progless too!

Maybe the levels of thrill-power found in Guatemala were just too high and the prog is being made safe before despatch...

Not really the right thread I suppose...but did anyone get their prog 2150?

I've had a really good run of it with my sub lately and then with this weeks eagerly anticipated prog (Wagner back on Dredd) it's a no show!
