I am going to be mildly annoyed if it turns out Jaegir is only 3-4 episodes after sitting through what feels like 89 weeks of Skip Tracer.

and this!

Post bank-holiday, post-Regened Prog review. Tbh this one, on the whole, didn't sparkle for me.

Dredd - it's a set up episode and feels like a bit of an ordinary start, but has potential to be cool: I'm puzzled by Dredd telling the other judge to disregard spooky stories of the haunted block when he himself spends a load of time fighting all sorts of supernatural stuff.. I'm not a fan of Nick Percivals art myself as I find it feels a bit static, but that's very much a personal thing and I can't deny the craft at work here.

Skip Tracer it's cliche-fest sadly, but there are some terrific panels here using Nimrod's cyber-eye: the one at the top of page 3 is great! Really enjoyed this episode visually.

Dexter same as before really, all interest has been sucked out of this especially with one protagonist (antagonist now, I suppose) now unkillable. Some lovely kinetic violence in the art on the final page however.

3riller - Sets the story up and it's ready to kick off. I remember enjoying the previous Thriller with Delphi but can't actually remember much about it so I need to go back and reread that, I think. Cool art from Steven Austin - I'd actually quite like to see this in black and white.

Jaegir Delighted to see this back and things certainly seem to have taken a darker turn. The Nordland looks superbly dour and the Norts themselves remain all impressively ugly, and I liked the holographic conversation / flashback giving us the backstory. Atalia going full on baddie seems soul-crushingly inevitable - I'd read a strip about Klaur and Reesa having adventures if it came to it though. This is a grim story and I am really into it: the downside being I'm assuming we're only getting three episodes, if 2250 is a jumping on Prog, or am I wrong?

This for me too ^^^

Also, if I'm honest, I'm disappointed that Pat chose to at the very least allow an inaccurate creator credit to stand in an article of some importance to which that point is more or less irrelevant.

I have nothing but sympathy and will give nothing but support to him on the actual point of the article, but this "I co-created Judge Dredd" thing has been part of Mills' largely fictitious version of UK comic history for some years now, alongside the whole "David Bishop and Andy Diggle 'dark days' destroyed 2000AD" crap that he's been peddling for a couple of decades.

What Jim says.

I’ll be bloody amazed if we’re not in lockdown again by half term. (Or perhaps the government’s plan now is back to herd immunity—let it rip through the country and hope that plus vaccines does enough, and then look all sad on TV when another 100,000 British people are dead. Meanwhile, many other countries will again look on in horror at the UK not even doing the bare basics to slow COVID, and question the country’s flatlined vaccine take-up that was once hailed as “world leading”.)

I'll bet cold, hard cash that there will be a public enquiry somewhere down the line, and that the Tories will stack it with cronies from the private healthcare lobby. The thing will be framed in terms of the 'failure of the NHS', which will be judged to be systemic and have cost tens of thousands of lives. Under cover of 'never allowing such a failure again', the handing off of great chunks of healthcare to the private sector will be accelerated.

I'm not sure if this is their real underlying intent, or they've just spotted it as a handy secondary effect of pursing a herd immunity policy by infection, rather than vaccination.

I'd really love for you to be proved wrong, but I'm not that hopeful :-(

Yeah was on the verge of giving up a couple of times, but will perceive till the end now, if its every released into the wild.
The recent Spin off with the cast of Glee or Fame heading off in a school bus was so atrociously bad, its hard to believe they dumbed down even further with the LCD for the teen audience... still fingers crossed for the Daryl and Carol spin off
