I enjoyed Bendatti Vendetta, but Low Life was properly epic. No contest.

Low Life for me too

This is just an awful choice but I can't vote against Zenith.

I don't like Tyranny Rex but I do like Leviathan so it gets my vote here.

Awesome! Look forward to hopefully meeting you guys. I'll be dressed as an aging death metal dude with a hobo beard. Perhaps I'll bring my Rok volumes for signing also..

By the time you get to the rat-dragon the genie is superfluous sadly. He really hacks me off because he basically says 'if you're in trouble, I'll help!' when he should actually say 'if you're in trouble in a very, very specific manner and circumstance, I'll help!' because that's what he's actually all about. Grr!

You should totally have another run at it dude!

That genie is totally useless.

I got my Prog yesterday so I can participate in the review thread again! Alll starts off with a dramatic and generally excellent cover.

Excellent story so far. Asher is a sympathetic character - he's smart and regrets his previous actions - and the stuff about his appearance and losing his ability to laugh hammers home how dreadful the Titan treatment is. Meanwhile Dredd is still competent tackling his own side of the investigation, instead of being sidelined or looking a bit useless as he is sometimes criticised for in Neimand tales. I agree the art is has a touch of Bolland to it and just so good, from the old school Meg punks to the judges wading through all the human gunk. Best thing in the Prog this week and I enjoyed almost everything else in it too.

Hope isn't doing anything for me at all. I was a fan of the previous runs but not this one - there's no menace here for me, only tedium and masses of supporting characters who aside from a couple I am finding somewhat homogenous aside from their likeness to real world counterparts. Lovely art and layouts but struggling to continue with this.

Brink on the other had is superb. Nice offhand reference to the 'healthy' water leading to the horror of the final sequence. We're at the point where almost anything referenced feels ominous - characters talk about going somewhere or doing something and it could be a foreshadowing. Great stuff.

Dexter I've previously voiced my disinterest about Dexter but this has been a nice little story so far. The barn reveal is something far more grotesque than I imagined, a real nightmare despite it's little hat. Really like Tazio Bettin's depictions of combat in the last story with the dinosaurs and he's good here too.

Fiends Top notch. I still feel a bit like the setting has been wasted a bit - I was expecting more of a spy type story before we swerved back into mythical territory- but what we have got is excellent. Constanza is just horrific. The art is next level awesome. I also have no idea who that is at the end btw.

Loved Necronauts but Aquila is the winner here for me.

Another vote for Mazeworld here.

Glorious stuff Colin!
Really like the look of Switchblade Stories in B&W

I went on about how I wasn't enamoured with Megatropolis last time so won't bore anyone by doing that again. I think I may have voted against it last round, but here, it's Tribal Memories that's the better thrill for me.

Brigand Doom: great style, but no substance. It didn’t know what it wanted to be, so although it looks great, it reads like a dud. Shadows is no 2000 AD classic, but it has that substance. Also, given where we are today, it seems quite prescient. So: Shadows.

This sums it up for me too. Another vote for Shadows here please Colin.

Definitely Armoured Gideon here.
