Thistlebone: I fear folk looking for horror action are going to be disappointed: this is the action. Which is to say, creeping tension, unsettling imagery and odd incidents is what this strip does, and it does it brilliantly.

I agree. Thistlebone is one of my favorite strips in recent years and I have the lovely hardcover of the first series sat next to me. I think the slow burn nature is a benefit to this kind of tale/Folklore Horror.

Deadworld is just glorious and another of my favorites. Three cheers for brave, loyal Sir Robin Judge Gargon!

Dredd continues to intrigue and Feral and Foe is great. The 3hriller? Didn't do much for me I'm afraid. Still, it's only the first episode so we'll see what happens.

Looking forward to the return of Hope...

Free on PS4 this month are Days Gone and Zombie Army 4: Dead War.

I'm not yet finished the first level of Doom: Eternal, but playing on Nightmare setting is the most fun I've had with a game for some time.

One of the best games I've ever played. I recently finished the second DLC and all it's done is left me wanting more.

Halo 5, in comparison, feels like a repetitive slog.

The only FPS that matches Dooms intensity would be Left 4 Dead 2, imo. And I've long since given up on the likes of COD and such.

In other gaming news - I'm currently replaying the first Doom game to get the Platinum Trophy. As good a game as this is it pails against the sequel.

And Beer. Get them to dress as a close approximation of their character, ply them with booze and then send them on one last quest/Treasure hunt around your garden.

There's a list of Judge Dredd Case Files, in publication order, on the 2000AD Web Shop if that is what you are after?

I'm also a physical subscriber.

On 16th Dec 2020 I received an email from 2000AD about the Future shock podcast. Upon clicking the link I was redirected to my Google account to download the app. Have a look at your inbox, you may have missed it.

Hope this helps.

At a guess I imagine the reason fresh loaves of bread were thrown out would be because of a legal requirement to have any possible allergens displayed on the packaging. A hand written label wouldn't be sufficient even if the information was correct, to the best of my knowledge.

 Wonder what Dredd's secret is?  Big?  Small?  Piercing?
 Two?  None?

I would say small based on nothing but vague speculation.

Being the nigh unstoppable force he is might just be a product of over-compensation on his part, or something. Combine that with the absolutely massive Daystick on the cover and I think that you'll find I've probably read far too much into the story and quite possibly had one too many beers!

All nonsense aside it was the best tale in a very good Prog!

For some reason the blurb is making me think of Bad Company.
