Side-vote: if Wagner did kill off Dredd, and as Ezquerra is not around to draw it, which artist should do the honours?

Plenty of adults are watching Stranger Things, so I don't buy that the target audience is 11 year olds, for whom it seems completely unsuitable. Agree about Dr Who though.

Some good stories in this one, and I'm glad they're including Kenny Who?.

Seriously, why are they bothering with Samantha Slade at all? It's the worst thing to appear in the prog since Rebellion took over.

I'm happy with any of 1, 2 or 3. The other ideas suck balls. 5 and I stop reading it.

Yup. This is only the start. Clarence Thomas has said they'll go after other rights next, including gay marriage.

Nobody, for the reasons given by Huey2.

What a great write-up! You've inspired me to give Sorcery! another go (although I'll still try WoT first as it's new to me).  What was the reason it lost half a point?

Durham Red.

Do young children read bi-monthlies? Does anyone know why they don't want weeklies?

Peril and by the nature of peril violence is part of "all ages" entertainment for all time.

Well that's a question of degree isn't it? There's a world of difference between the kind of violence in, say, The Judge Child and the kind we see in Killing Time or Cinnabar. If you are serious about your point that any level of unlimited violence and brutality is suitable for young children as long as there is no sex, then you might be in a minority opinion among parents there.

I didn't get your point about CBBC I'm afraid (it sounds like the exact opposite of what 2000AD is doing, more like if an adult channel did one day a month of children's programmes).

I'm quite happy for Regened to happen four times a year, but if I wanted to read all ages stuff all the time then I'd be buying the Phoenix instead of 2000AD.

That write-up is more entertaining than the actual book! I remember getting very frustrated with it after running out of fuel numerous times, instead of being defeated by a monster or a trap or whatever-- such an anti-climax!

My first Way of the Tiger book has arrived so I'll probably do that one next.

I don't think you remember those stories as well as you think you do! Either that or you've just focused on sex to the exclusion of everything else. I was thinking more about violence and horror. There is a world of difference between the original Wagner and Bolland Judge Death of 1980 and the Deadworld of today. Indigo Prime: Soft Bodies is gruesome, and Killing Time has people being blinded and mutilated.

(My own mother confiscated a reprint of some old 80s Judge Dredd stories because she thought the Otto Sump story about people eating rats and cockroaches, and the story Blobs about plastic surgery, were too disgusting for children!)

Is Indigo Prime for all ages? Cradlegrave? Anything by John Smith, for that matter? Dark Justice? Deadworld? Defoe? I think 2000AD would be poorer without them. And without Hope too.
