A character chiselled from a solid block of Deeply Irritating.

It's seeming to me that where the real star of Judge Dredd is often Mega-City One, the real star of Anderson could be the rest of Psi-Division (and supernatural adversaries).

The JD strip can get away with it since we get this every week whereas Anderson we can maybe once  a year
Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

Probably why she's only used in cameo - although I can be proven wrong if a new series of Janus launches next quarter.

Seems like one solution is to run Anderson more regularly.

I'm not really following the argument that Anderson is all used up as a character, any more than (say) Dredd, or Slaine, or Alpha. Or Janus. *cough*

I do recall the sub-divisions like Fortean Events but didn't remember witches / spellcasters at all, my bad if so.

It's not made explicit, but presumably Falzon's the current head of the Department of the Supernatural. We saw a lot of these guys during the Half-Life arc; Chief Fauster manipulated Cass and his own hapless stooge Gistane (like Falzon, a Justice Department witch) into releasing the Half-life virus on the city as part of a misguided attempt to achieve immortality.

Maybe they need to ditch all this portentous stuff and write her in a knockabout style like Pandora Perfect. I mean that was her original schtick back in the first two Judge Death stories.

Very late to the party but I thought that was a cracking prog where every strip had something in it to float my boat.

I think when I end up seven weeks behind it's probably a reflection on the previous run of stories rather than the current ones starting. So I am looking forward to devouring this lot of tales in a concentrated burst.
Be excellent to each other. And party on!

As a loyal, fellow Squaxx, Tiplodocus, I feel duty-bound to remind you to take all of the necessary precautions against Thrill-Power Overload.  :)
