Low Life because it was a genuine opening up of the Dredd Mythos, introduced a load of new characters and looked beautiful.

I don't really remember a great deal about The Bendatti Vendetta other than I quite liked it.

Oh grud, what a choice. My all-time worst 2000AD strip versus one from the bottom tier.

Strontium Dogs. Because it isn't Counterfeit Girl.

Books & Comics / Re: Shift Comic - new UK anthology
« on: 19 May, 2022, 01:47:22 PM »
^^^What Tomwe said. I went into town yesterday expecting just the prog and the Meg, and found also Shift, Croix-Noir #1 and the new Fortean Times. Result. If an expensive one.

I left Shift for last, largely because I hadn't enjoyed the previous issue as much as I had in the past and was concerned the lustre was coming off. Shouldn't have been such a namby pamby. Not a wasted page, and everything was hugely enjoyable- notably Elephantmen (which I'd only read in that Strontium Dog crossover drawn by Boo Cook) and To The Death. Great to see Pat promoting Requiem and Claudia again- I have all the Panini volumes and love them, but we have been waiting too long for no. 6 and I hope we get a chance, through Shift, for an opportunity to read Claudia at last.

Shift is still probably the best UK comic on the market that isn't 2000AD or the Meg (when Lawless is running).

I've never understood the swooning over Zenith, but I've made my feelings clear before. Button Man gets this vote.

Leviathan.

Yes, Necronauts. Short, sweet and to the point.

The Dead.

But for me, a matter of the "least worst" I'm afraid.

Harlem Heroes. A series featuring an all black main cast, in the first issue of a weekly boys adventure comic of the seventies? We should have realised from the off that 2000AD was going to be something special. Oh, hang on, we did. And, of course, who of us wasn't terrified by Artie Gruber?

Are we close to the next issue yet? I have grown to really like Paragon, and am itching for another!

I've loved Tribal Memories for decades. Back in the day there was that magnificent, chunky, 'Best of 2000AD Special' that was packed full of top-quality thrills. The Complete Tribal Memories was in that, and didn't seem.out of place. That issue is something I dig out on a fairly regular basis to reread, and I've bought multiple copies over the years for friends when they've asked me to show them why 2000AD is worth reading. If I were forced to grab *one comic* in a life or death emergency, it would probably be that one.

But, Megatropolis was spectacular. And that particular period of the Meg was the best the comic has ever been. So, Megatropolis gets it for me.

Prog / Re: Prog 2281 - Guilt Trip
« on: 11 May, 2022, 02:57:28 PM »
I *think* that's the first prog this year that I've read straight through, cover to cover, without skipping anything or feeling that a particular strip doesn't justify its inclusion.

5 great stories, all hugely entertaining in their own way. Top stuff, Tharg.

Metalzoic. Though Armoured Gideon was huge fun.

Max is better as a supporting character (unless drawn by Casanovas, sadly impossible now) but Lenny Zero was just plain awful. So Max Normal gets it.

Never rated Robo-Hunter as among the prog's better thrills back in the day- and for me, if it weren't for a great deal of nostalgia for 'The Beast of Blackheart Manor', Dan Dare would be walking this. However, 'The Beast of Blackheart Manor' is a strip I have a LOT of nostalgic love for, and that's enough to give my vote to Robo-Hunter.
