These are all brilliant. Can't believe I'm on this site every day and I've never seen that Stogie before.

If you get excited about matching spines, check this out.

Scroll down to see the full glory. I’m going to have to get the full set!

Oh. My. God.

Surprised but to see any of my old History lecturers' names on the spines there but I'm a big fan of the guy who does Athelstan and Henry VI.

Judge Hershey stories have been almost universally uninspired filler generated to fill a few pages in the Meg.

BLAIR 1 was a one-off joke strip with ideas above its station. At least Simon Davis seems to be having fun.

Tales of the Black Museum is hobbled by its format before it's even got out the door. As I never tire of bringing up every time Vector 13 gets a look-in, framing comics with a narrator as character is annoying because it distances you from the story being told. The equivalent of all those wordy captions from history. Even the best stories, this month's must be up there, suffer for this.

Realm of the Damned really didn't appeal to me and it's quite interesting to compare with some of the Regened material. Turns out I prefer something that's aimed at actual children to something that's targeted squarely at teenage boys. On the other hand, Pye's art is really, really nice and Worley always makes an effort to create a world for his stories.

Realm of the Damned.

Tiger Sun, Dragon Moon was alright. Could've done with a sequel to see if it had legs.

Lily MacKenzie & the Mines of Charybdis was also quite entertaining. The only thing giving me pause is the webcomic origins but I think Fraser's ladies win out.

Really & Truly was the highlight of the Summer Offensive (sorry Slaughterbowl fans.) Dayglo, disposable fun that didn't outstay it's welcome and showcased Rian Hughes wonderful art. Nailed the sort of psychedelic whimsy that a few other strips of the era aimed at but never reallly hit. Also, I just remembered that I found a copy of Yesterday's Tomorrows in a charity shop last year so I can actually sit down and read this one!

Storm Warning does quite a nice job of creating a sort of English ghost story version of Psi Division. Not an amazing strip but trying to fill its own littel niche.

Really & Truly.

Can I vote for Necronauts again?

Nearly everything is wrong with this movie.

Doesn't she have a really good coat in the snow bit?

Hmm. I'm sure I posted in this thread this morning. A mind-warping mystery from beyond the veil or evidence of a chronoclastic infundibulum?

Timequake is still on the increasingly short list of Prog stories I've never read at all. I'll wait for the Hibernia edition.

Necronauts was my introduction to Rennie's fortean fancies and is resplendent in that beautiful Irving Ink.

Necronauts, by default, but it still deserves it.

I speed-read Creep when ploughing through the history of the Meg. My general impression was that it was a both a bit nasty and a bit dull. Not a great combination.

I don't recall much about Karyn's solo stories but she's been a supporting character in a couple of decent ones.

Karyn.

Can't get enough of the most recent Low album. Seems like such a simple trick they've pulled but I just never get tired of it: Days Like These.

I love the fact that it takes a song which has strong tone and feel, feels so defined by its mood and atmosphere and twists that entirly to add completely new meaning.
Yeah, it's definitely doing its own thing! I think I like it but it was pertty jarring being used to the original.

Well its been a while but what a way to brign this thread back, if I do sat so myself.

50ft Wave's cover of Kristen Hersh's own 'Your Ghost' - how did I not know this existed? Kinda weird to cover your own song, but at the same time kinda amazing!
Not sure what I think about this on first listen!

Dash Decent all the way. One for the next Hibernia special?
I think they reprinted some of Dash in the Kev O'Neill's Cosmic Comics release.

Cosmic Comic has all the episodes from the Prog - I think that's all of it isn't it?
Ah! So it has. I read Captain Klep and some of the more obscure stuff when it arrived and never even clicked that old Dash was in there. Cheers!

Wait - he's not living in Scotland anymore?
Arf!
