Occam's Razor is suggesting that the first three episodes of Joe Pineapples are being printed in the Xmas prog. This wouldn't be the first time that this has happened.  I'm looking at you, The Fiends if the Wrstern Front.

Not sure why given that FCBD has never been offered to subscribers at any level.

Because the entire point of FCBD is to get people to go into comic shops…? That's literally the reason it exists — if you can get a copy without going into a comic shop, it defeats the purpose of supporting FCBD in the first place.

Not to mention the fact that FCBD books are by FCBD themselves, not the participating publishers such as Rebellion.

I think he was replying to the previous post, hence the "given that..."

My point was an observation on the apparent overlap on the Venn diagram containing sets of those subscribers who decry, "Why don't subscribers receive the FCBD special?" & those who bemoan, "Why is my subscription being used to subsidise four Regened progs a year?"

Next year they ought not to have any cause to bemoan FCBD, will they?  😉

Personally, I think that the choice of going with Regened for FCDB 2023 is a brilliant idea.

Oh boy. The "What about the subscribers?" mob are going to go futsie when they hear this.

Merged with the Meg, commencing with reprints of the IDW miniseries Judge Dredd Year One & Mega City Two.

[Post moved to correct thread]

When Slaine is good it is brilliant.But it ain't no Nemesis the Warlock.

It took Stevie nigh a decade of reading the prog for John & Carlos's other signature character, Old Stony Face, to click with him. Yet Strontium Dog won him over in about 4 or 5 pages.

Strontium Dog it is.

Giving the creators the rights to Big Dave to Morrison, Parkhouse & Millar also released Fleetway from any obligation to publish the completed strip Sharon's Big Night Out that was deemed too offensive for the Sci Fi Special.

It's curious how, when Pat began collaborating with an actual practioner of magick, the occult elements in the strips became so mundane. Tony Skinner was no Alan Moore or Grant Morrison. The Ickean stuff feels like low-hanging fruit  & as such a poor substitute for the Cythron cosmology of Slaine. The whole thing is achingly adolescent.

"Free Comics Book Day? But what about the subscribers?"

And XTNCT + the less memorable Pan-African Judges

Yes! TBH, I was just thinking of what he'd done since becoming far better known as a Dr Who writer.

I bet that he's relieved that nobody recalls Blackadder Deathwatch in the Meg.

Does Stevie remember Zip Nolan? Absolutely. Being the least fantastical strip in Lion, it was resolutely little Stevie's least favourite.

Give it a regened, Mega-City reboot, you say? From the perspective of an older squaxx: sounds fun so yes please! Make the cadets clone sisters for the win.

A reprint of the original to allow a reappraisal wouldn't go astray either.
