Tell you want half watching this is the way to go. Family watched episode 4, I stayed in the room and half watched and it was entirely entertaining, while I was entirely not engrossed! The ending was dead good in that context too.

So my advice is half watch the thing while doing a jigsaw (or similar) - works a treat!

Given how quickly Sheridan got this together we've had some LOVELY stuff as exemplified by Pete 'lovely' Well's fantastic story - dare you to use that in class - and Jim's wonderful sound effect. Hope you have a quiet month Jim so we get more of these. I love a good sound effect. Do less exercise or summit!


Closer this one, but still pretty early on one tale took a confident lead and the other was just pecking away behind, never really launching a serious attack, but never falling entirely away. The final outcome won't leave anyone speechless... ready for it... unlike

Bob Byrne's Twisted Tales

which silently stalks into Round 2.

See you tomorrow...


Never think it will be a shut out until The Mind of Wolfie Smith has spoken, and he wasn't the only one. Looked once again like a white wash and in the end it was just a near white wash for

Bendatti Vendetta

as it shots in Round 2.

Just to say, my sub prog runs around two weeks late. I get the "Saturday" issue normally on the Thursday or Friday of the following week, ie 12 or 13 days after most here.

And that's regularly. Man that's harsh.

Get ya votes in today and I'll count up in the morning. I'mn beginning to worry about how many times I'm going to have to type this type of thing!

Last day, get ya votes in and I'll count up in the morning etc etc...


Matching scores today, both ended with a quiet 3:9. On that basis you can probably guess


is sci-fing its way into round 2.


Little surprised Sooner or Later didn't get more attention. A strip that is forever burnt into memory for those glorious Brendan McCarthy worlds and Pete Milligan's unbridaled imagination. That Captain Klep took votes off it would have surprised me in the past, but these days I'm very aware what a fantastic diverse bunch you are. Mind for all those surprises, or not the result was as predictable as possible.

Sooner or Later

Gets comfortably to the 2nd round.

And the prog continues to be bloody majestic... I mean this is good, good, GOOD thrillage isn't it.

Dredd remains hilarious and now has added villainy to drive things.

Diaboliks - I mean we're meant to care about the fate of the evil fuckin' nazi right, right... and yet somehow Grennie and Dom Reardon manage to make me do just that... astonishing!

Dexter fights more dinosaurs... see Dan its simple really. Either make it as good as it used to be*, make it as good as The Out or Lawless OR have them fight dinosaurs, its a simple and lovely fall back!

Scarlet Traces asking humanity to embrace peace and forgive... hmmm... I'm nervous and excited about where this is going....

The Out flips the tone again with a hilarious opening, some deft character moments as cyd shows her indulgent side and then cranks the tension up. This is a masterclass!

*Note to folks who think it should have finished at the end of story X the correct answer to when this was is a little over a year ago actually!

I’m disappointed. I was sure the cover tag line was going to be “Tyranosaurus Dex”.

Sweet mother of Grud you are SO right, so right.

Even with that fumble however this was a majestic Prog in a run that is simply brilliant. While I've had to wait to read these last three issues its been worth the wait and reading them in short order has been lovely. If I'm a lucky boy next weeks Prog will land tomorrow too.

ANYWAY why is the Prog so good right now, well...

Dredd its bloody funny and beautiful to look at.

The Diaboliks its bloody dirty and grimey and excellent.

Dexter its bloody dinosaurs fighting gun sharks and exciting (after such a long time)

Scarlet Traces its bloody intriguing and drives the plot forward and man is it beautiful to look at.

The Out its bloody well one of the best stories to have ever graced Tharg's Kingdom. How something so naturally and organically flips from being hilarious to as powerful as this episode just makes it feel like life. An astonishing bewildering, harrowing life, but it feels wonderfully darkly, warmly, real. Its a little piece of magic.

That's why.

Not sure if these digital releases preclude a physical release but if so such a shame for a strip as good as Dark Justice - Deliverance. It also a shame that Survival Geeks might not get a second physical volume to finish it off.

This one is tough, but when I spotted something in the opening sentence I'm lead to Chopper and think it mayyyyyy be Chopper: Wondering Spirit ... but not sure I have the right volume there?

DRAW - yep let's cut straight to the chase, for the first time in this tourney we have a tie and thus the call falls to me.

Extinction Rebellion will be gluing themselves to the ground outside the FFTA offices this morning.

And I'll be throwing tramped dandelions at them!
