All of them was pretty weak so lest then go for the weakest of them all.

Yeah….that was the whole point 😊.

For pretty much the reasons given above by Alex, I’m also going for Strontium Dog.

 :-\I’ve not read Hookjaw, apart from the odd reprinted episode, so don’t feel qualified to vote.

And I’m sure what we were laughing at back then would be considered completely un-PC now.

For example “Eat plutonium death, you disgusting alien weirdos” etc. Don’t think they would get away with that these days.

For me this vote was completely based on nostalgia, not having read either recently and possibly not since they were published.

So it’s a mid fifties me remembering what a teenage me thought of them. And teenage me probably thought Skizz was a bit slow and lacking in action, whereas DR & Quinch was hilarious. Especially the T Shirt my brother had.

If I read them now, I may well have a different opinion.

I think Future Shocks have run their course and the way forward is definitely 3rillers. But no 3riller can match the best Future Shocks from the classic period.

Halo Jones. But it’s a lot closer than I would have thought before.

Invasion.

Greatest 2000AD thrill that never featured on the cover.

Wow I didn’t know that, as I wasn’t a 2000AD reader at the time. That’s quite incredible.

Prog / Prog 2301: Primate Scream
« on: 25 September, 2022, 05:41:08 PM »
With three strips starting new runs, one of which is it’s first book after a initial episode in a Regened Prog last Nov, plus a complete Dredd and a Future Shock, I guess this is technically a jumping on Prog. But it really doesn’t feel like it, especially after last week’s zombie special.

Dredd has nice art by Dave Taylor, but completely telegraphs the twist pretty much from the third panel on page 1.

Best thing in the Prog, by many a mile is Chimpsky, which introduces a couple of extremely creepy characters.

Enemy Earth picks up the story from Prog 2256. I’d recommend re-reading that first. It’s early days, but so far I’m not gripped.

I can’t remember the last time I read a Future Shock that I liked. Yes I get why they exist, but they do nothing for me anymore.

Then we get the first part of the final book of Hershey which I guess picks up from the last one, but I’m not sure how much I actual care. As always Simon Fraser’s art is top quality, but the  colour palette is very subdued. Ok I get it’s in the Antarctic, but even so.

Something that never seems to get commented on is the review of the last 45 years of thrills. Three things stood out for me (or urge same thing 3 times?). I can’t believe it’s 11 years since Tharg’s 3rillers started. If you had asked me I would have said 5 years tops. Plus it’s also 11 years since Day of Chaos and when Grey Area started.
