Great line-up in Prog 2100 with Kingdom back, Brink back, Skip Tracer bac... oh hold on it it go? Anyway and Fiends of the East Front back with an intriguing premise - do we know the creative team for this one?

Hopefully for Fiends we get some black and white Colin MacNeil art similar to his Defoe work

Also looking forward to Mind Wars

I enjoyed the special. These specials are always a combination of hits and misses. Some cases it is the story, the art or even the specific character.

The only real exception was the Tyranny Rex strip. I did not help that I do not really like the character but overall this just did not work for me.

Enjoyed the Meg

Dredd vas Razorjack - action packed from end to beginning and great art from Higgins

But its Returners that continues to be the biggest delight. Man I wasn't particularly expecting this to be as good as it is and another smackin' ending setting its ending up nicely one suspects.

My sentiment as well great story

Chopper - the story is now getting some steam with some real psychedelic art from McCarthy

Lofty - never read this but reads like a typical 70s 80s strip. 3 page stories with the one-dimensional characterization of the enemy. Now do not get me wrong I enjoyed this. A lot of the newer writers can learn from these old foxes on how to write a story with a very limit page count.

Dredd - this was a great story and hopefully we can get more stories set in the beginning of the dreddverse (maybe the Meg is a great place for this)

Skip Tracer - enjoying this but it start feeling like it wants to tell you something but not quite clear on how to tell you

Deadworld - macabre at its best, I am enjoying this more and more.

Durham Red - the change of artist did not break the story. Lee Carter's art is different but still great. The new Durham works for me, more please.

I am looking forward to Bisleys return to the Prog. His recent strips "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse", "13 Coins" and "Fistful of Blood" are all awesome. I agree that "The Horned God" is still for me his greatest work.

I'm assuming it'll cover everything that ran under the 'Tharg's Future Shocks' banner, but I note that it includes the first Abelaard Snazz story, which was a Ro-Jaws Robo Tale.
In my dream world, this 'Complete' collection would go on to include all Robo-Tales, Time Tiwsters, Terror Tales, Past Imperfects and whatever else I've forgotten. But will it include some of those one-off stories that just had their own title and weren't technically called 'Future Shocks'?

From the collection about Abelard Snazz:
Technically, though not a Future Shock, the Ro-Jaws Robo-Tale Final
Solution was included to introduce the character Abelard Snazz.

I will give Skip Tracer time to develop (maybe some patience required),  so far I like the story.

The prog continues on the same path and it is still thumbs up for me.

But it’s a different thing to the story not going anywhere.....just saying.

Where is Sin/Dex going ? I am not sure. Maybe I am unfair to sate that it is going nowhere.

The question I have for you is, do you not like it because

a) you don’t like the characters
b) you think it isn’t going anywhere
c) a combination of the above


Because of a) it feels for me that the story is going nowhere. But maybe is must just bite the bullet and see where the journey ends  :D

Sinister Dexter is one of those stories which I do find to be either hot or cold. I will always read it but it feels like it is going nowhere. I know lot of people enjoy it but if it stops now I will not miss it.

For me one of the strengths of Sinister Dexter is they can do individual tales which don’t have to be part of a wider story, or which have only a small part of a wider story. Or they can do bigger arcs.

It’s actually the same with Dredd and Stront....

You make a valid point, but my problem is not the script (Dan Abnett is a very talented writer). I just can’t seem to really like the main characters.  This run of Sin/Dex I enjoyed more than previous run. I did not like Deadworld when it started but maybe Sin/Dex will grow on me. Since AD is an anthology their might be a strip or two which you do not like. Having multiple stories is both a strength and a weakness.

Covers awesome, but when did Judge Death start wearing boots?

A Question of (Dark) Judgement.

Sidney De'ath has a crisis of confidence, and wonders if his plan to kill every living thing is the right thing.

He turns to his mentor, Judge Morphy, who advises not wearing boots at all.

"By Grud my feet were stinking to high heaven, while also stepping on Lego -  I didn't worry if killing every single thing was right or not"

Nothing anyone else can say will be as funny and clever. Can a moderator lock the thread, and maybe pin it as an example to others?

Death never wears boots. This is a residual of an imprint of Prog 2079. Hail to the king Mick McMahon
