It's not great though, is it? It's like the entire first half of the series is about moving all the pieces into place so the real story can start.

It might just be me but weren't the Department K lot supposed to be helping out some extradimensional starfish people with their problems? Did that all get sorted out off page?

The problem for me isn't that Skip Tracer is better (or worse) than The Order. It's that it's objectively worse than its most obvious Tooth antecedent, Night Zero.

*If I have to mention Brink/ Lawless/ Dante to another hairy-arsed Farage-follower with an England flag profile picture when they ask for examples of 'stuff as good as Sam Spade Robot Hunter' or 'that Dredd where he fights Russians'

I imagine they're thinking of 'Frankenstein Division'.

He illustrated the famous-ish Doctor Ooh strip in Issue 161.

Yes… now, that I've checked — John Grant's 'The Hundredfold Problem', and also an unpublished Dave Stone Dredd novel that got re-tooled as a Dr Who novel.

Not quite. 'Burning Heart' was supposed to be a Dredd/Doctor Who crossover novel that didn't happen because Virgin lost the licence to the Judge Dredd novels. It went ahead with the Doctor meeting someone who was suspiciously like Dredd but wasn't for copyright reasons.

Has anyone explained why this is getting released in such thin volumes? It's a major series in British comics history and I can't understand why it's not being collected along similar lines to The Trigan Empire, Charley's War, The Spider, etc.

Not the first time that Millar thought it was cool to end a story with a big "up yours!" to... well, everyone... and not the last time either.

Apropos of nothing in particular, Tharg needs to lock the Chris Weston droid in a room and not let him out until he's written and drawn his new Indigo Prime story.

I totally forgot about this! Plot twist anticipation rising!

Possibly that's already been covered by the "those two helped me so not all the murders followed a pattern" panel. I suspect the second twist will be more about who alerted Chimpsky to all this in the first place, and why.

Chimpsky: so what will the surprise twist (part 2 of 2) be? I notice that we don't see Herakles or Millie Ploog-Jepperson among the dead and we still don't know what was going on with the cocktail shaker.

I think you could squeeze just about squeeze Revere, Cradlegrave, Slaughterbowl and A Love Like Blood into one volume but I'd prefer two books with room for things like Danzig's Inferno and The Strange Case of the Wyndham Demon as well.

I'm very excited to see Perfect Day collected at last!

Yep, I was having a pop at Hachette's spelling - no one else's - and wouldn't even have done that if an obscure 70s puppet series tangent hadn't popped into my mind.
