Fiends feels a bit like it was planned as a one-off for an end-of-year prog but Tharg let it out two weeks too early.

The big issue around Luke Kirby might be that by licensing publishing rights to an external publisher, Rebellion could be opening an exciting new legal avenue by which McKenzie could claim ownership. But then I thought that about Zenith and Morrison and now that might be happening so I'm probably dead wrong.

update - I have received my Hardback Edition ( Number 29 of 400 - all sold out before publication ) of
The Trigan Empire Volume 4 . This is the last book (1/2 of the Volume 4 is of the art of Don Lawrence ) that will feature the artist Don Lawrence

Not quite. Lawrence returned for another stint of about 14 months immediately after the strips collected in this volume, so Book V should complete his run.

Maybe with 'The Order' coming back in February next year for its final run we could have another Hachette book compiling all the outstanding material as part of the extension. I'm hoping!

This is my hope also!

Homophone alert! Unless Vasilisa's plan was to enhance or physically lift Mega-City One above its current level, I think she meant to say "I will not rest until I raze this, your adopted city..."

Unless it's just a bad translation from the Sov.

The Order's got... quite involved.

I'm wondering how they'll be able to wrap it up in just one series.

The Future Shock this time round felt like it could have come from a non-Regened Prog. Until the last page when it suddenly felt like it could have come from a non-Regened Prog from 1977-78 when the Future Shocks hadn't quite found their groove and were still doing "Adam and Eve were space people!" or "the ugly alien is actually beautiful to us!"-type punchlines.

ancient jokes (like Nikki Louder in Bladers punning off Niki Lauda, who retired in 1985 ffs, is an awful choice of name for a strip aimed at a young reader)

But kids won't notice that it's a pun, any more than I knew forty years ago what "Ro-Jaws and Hammerstein" was riffing off.

As I’m sure you know, you have to pay WHS an absolute fortune if you want to get them to display your title anywhere other the bottom of a locked filing cabinet stuck in a disused lavatory with a sign on the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard.’

Kids will assume the leopard is radioactive and open the filing cabinet in the hope of gaining superpowers.

I've said before, the big problem with the Regened progs is that everything in the regular prog grinds to a halt to make way for (mostly) less interesting stuff. Which is especially frustrating when the regular prog is on top form (Dredd and Chimpsky in particular).

It's also weird that they're interrupting Enemy Earth for a week when it's basically a Regened strip anyway.

The Dredd-verse strips (plus Dredd himself) are definitely the highlights of the prog at the moment. Given we're coming up to the tenth anniversary of Trifecta... and given Dirty Frank is still noodling over Smiley... does anyone else suppose we could be heading for a big crossover twist?

OK, just me then.

Thirteen pages is basically going to triple or quadruple the amount of Bonjo material Tharg has ever printed.

It feels like a long time since we've had some full-throated Dirty Frankisms. Welcome home.

This may be an unpopular thought in some quarters, but the new Chimpsky feels a lot more like what I'd expect from a properly 2000AD-flavoured Regened prog than a lot of what's appeared in the actual Regend progs.
