The Scrap was very good.

Initially I thought the hook(underground dwelling sub-classes) was a bit old hat, and that the lady would turn out to be another riff on the future cop theme, but Si weaved a top class tale around this familiar sci fi setting.

The set up and execution was worthy of that midnight semolina chap that makes those strange Hollywood movies that actually have plot and character development.

i think the scrap showed its not all revamps in the future of tooth,
great slow burner with excellent characters,.
it was not over hyped and had a decent plot.
good art to boot as well.
thumbs up from a lot of here, which is never an easy fete.

Personally, I thought The Scrap started superbly, and was shaping up to be great when it suddenly ended in a fashion that can only be described as toss. Shame really! 10/10 for the art tho!

I thought it was really quite good and for once a short story suited the short story setting (wow!).  Elson shows that he CAN draw people after all (and after Roadkill and Atavar) and that he is still a master at drawing fucked up beasties.

It's clear that this boy can write, give him more progspace!
