BOY WAS I WRONG.

Is that the story where it turns out Johnny Alpha was ‘alive’ in a cave all along, and Gronk has to shoot him? That really pissed me off. Awful plotting.

That’s the story afterwards.

Actually the story before, Monster, isn’t totally terrible apart from a massive out of nowhere coincidence meeting in the penultimate chapter kind of undermining the otherwise half thoughtful storyline.

Also, the vodka bit always reminds me of a wedding I went to in Poland where when someone drank vodka (and that was pretty much the only drink) everyone had to. The wedding was amazing, but I was very, very sick.

I had the same experience too. Apparently. I have no memory. And couldn't drink again for NINE MONTHS.

I'm just reading through Strontium Dogs Vol 2.

Now I first started reading the progs in the last few episodes of the Final Solution, so Johnny's death meant absolutely nothing to me at the time. Subsequently I remember quite liking the Gronkinator stuff at the time.

Maybe the art won me over. At least it's clear what is happening.

I dunno. Do we think this looks like Stallone (top right)?

You do get to see what he thinks Dredd would look like though, as he has to draw him without the helmet.

Didn't it suffer from being in that digital transition period?

Wondering which creator-owned strips were published during Bish-Op's reign that he would be intrerviewed about?

Luke Kirby & Zenith too early.

Button Man before and after but not during.

We know Al's Baby is in it don't we?

Holding out for Dinosty and Big Dave.

Mambo - good character design but I remember absolutely nothing about the story

Just catch up with the first few podcasts of the new batch. Blimey that first one was intense. I mean, it totally knocked me off my stride. Have we ever seen Robbie's take on the war stories? Other than what's in the strip.

Blimey.



Incidentally I only got into Blake's 7 post lockdown and its great stuff. You should try out the Big Finish audio dramas on them. Warship is only a fiver but it spans the gap between Series B and C. https://www.bigfinish.com/releases/v/blake-s-7-warship-815

I've just received 128 & 128 as I went on a six month hiatus while funds were 'fluid' during COVID and Hachette has just reinstated my sub after cancelling it because one postie didnt bother actually posting a set and just sent it back.

Armoured Gideon is going to be such a disappointment after all this 😀

I’m holding out for Sancho Panzer

Just finished Grey Area Books 1&2, which improved greatly after the first batch of stories. I do struggle with Mark Harrison's artwork though, in a way that I don't with Boo Cook's for example. Maybe his palette choice doesn't work well with the colour blind.

Then I absolutely belted through this last Strontium Dog book. Agree that it was a nice place for the story to end. What always gets me about Stront is it's ability to look like a linear storyline and for it to unexpectedly spend a load of time at one of the plot points, having a bit of fun.

Yeah. Love Boo Cook's work when he burst onto the scene. Have we really not had Asylum?
