I am silly because I forgot that the evidence I needed is right here on the forum: Meg 214 review thread, from December 2003. Case closed, m'lud.

Well, it's always good to have multiple sources.  :D

Anyone recall the first appearance of Judge Shenker, head of Psi-Div?

Wasn't it A Chief Judge Resigns in prog 457?

Ah - there he is! Thanks. So, he had hair then. Which means that's also Shenker in Engram.

He's been around a good long while.

And then some! Unlike his hair, of course - last seen in Necropolis, I think?

Surely only currently beaten by Dredd, Hershey and Anderson in terms of longest-appearing Judges still extant?

Prager?

And isn't there a weird inconsistency with Schenker?

He's referenced in the Cadet Anderson stories as being head of Psi Division, despite that making no chronological sense - is that what you were thinking of?

I thought it was something more radical like he’d been killed off then they just forgot about it. However, I think you’re right and I was just blowing bubbles.

A-Z updates

Big news is that I'm 25% done on this project.

I also added a new Judge... section, to deal with those recurring characters that don't have their own series. I started it up with the two Giants, Logan and our friends Patsy & Wrexler.

++NEW SECTIONS++
 - Ant Wars
 - Captain Klep
 - Counterfeit Girl
 - Dan Dare
 - Inaba
 - [Judge...]
   - Giant, Jnr.         
   - Giant, Snr.
   - Logan
   - Patsy & Wrexler
 - Meltdown Man   
 - Missionary Man
 - Shadows
 - Shimura
 - Tharg's Thrill Archives
 - [The Traitor General]
 - Venus Bluegenes

Funt I really like your ABC's. You can maybe add a Nemesisverse and a Dogverse icons as well :)
Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

I am super excited for the ability to scroll through individual characters to see how often/when they have appeared. I'm guessing Shenker took over from Omar, who had to sacrifice himself in that one yellow peril story that had great art that we try to forget about...

Aye, those two are definitely up for consideration.

Dogverse would obs be a wee SD badge, although I'm not sure how many strips that would encompass...let me check the list...

Durham Red
The Gronk
Middenface McNulty
Stix
Strontium Dog
Tales From the Doghouse
Strontium Dogs
Wulf Sternhammer
Young Middenface

Yeah - that seems icon-worthy.

---

With the Nemiverse, I was toying with the idea of doing a Millsverse icon, but it's so all-encompassing - where sometimes the narrative links are stretched. I'm not sure. The list *feels* like it would be vast. Let's see...

ABC Warriors
Blackblood
Deadlock
Flesh
Invasion!
Disaster 1990
Joe Pineapples
Nemesis and Deadlock
Nemesis the Warlock
Ro-Busters
Satanus
Savage

Not too bad, actually. For some reason, I though that list would be longer.
