My Top 3 for Prog 2259

1st - The Out - very emotional episode for Cyd. Imaginative work by Abnett and Harrison with the Up, and then some danger on the way to close out this episode. Really well done

2nd - Scarlet Traces - Negotiations taking place with a gorgeous colour palette by D'Israeli

3rd - Dredd - 'Judge Kisser" LP lol. Love all the posters in the background and need to see more Chris Weston vehicles based on panel one.

My Top 3 for Prog 2258

Solid prog and like last week all thrills ok with no shockers, maybe Scarlet Traces as the MVP

1st - Scarlet Traces - Great use of colour by D'Israeli

2nd - Dexter - a bit wordy but I don't mind Dexter although I thought the 'stuck in a simulation in planes' a few series ago was not so good

3rd - The Out - setup for big finale

My Top 3 for Prog 2257

Tricky choice for me this week with no real clear winner.

Each thrill was ok and none had a shocker

1st - Dredd - darker Dredd tale with a great startup ep. So used to seeing Coleby's art in the Rogue Trooper universe so it was good to see him on Dredd. Dream Police episode tag coming up maybe?

2nd - The Diaboliks - nice setup episode for next series in London with a crew of opponents to battle

3rd - Scarlet Traces - pips The Out to third with neither having their strongest ep this time round. Scarlet Traces gets the bronze for the story flow from panel to panel.

Loved the first couple of pages of the Future Shock but it finished all too quick for me.
also some great Art Stars work by Peter Yong  :thumbsup:

Big gap between Megs for me after reading Meg 346 almost as soon as it came out and taking my sweet time getting around to Meg 347 so it took me a while to remember where each thrill was at but anyhow...

My Top 3 for Meg 437

1st - Devlin Waugh - High stakes football

2nd - Dredd - Dredd by Niemand and MacNeil with Blythe on colours  :thumbsup:

3rd - Angelic - enjoying this series, Carter's work, top stuff

I'm pretty sure it's only Scooter's healing ability that doesn't work anymore.

Yep good point  :thumbsup:

My Top 3 for Prog 2256 Regened

1st - Strontium Dug - My pick from this Regened issue. Great to see MacNeil in action in a fun tale from the SD universe. The Scottish accent stuff is a wee bit tricky tae understan at times though  ;)

2nd - Scooter & Jinx - I enjoyed this one but would like Scooter to keep her powers in future eps should the story continue.

3rd -  Cadet Dredd - CD is always a bit forced imho but this one was fine maybe because it was action aplenty on Lawmasters

Not the strongest Regened overall but hopefully Tharg will bring back Finder and Keeper in future issues

My Top 3 for Prog 2254

All thrills working well for me

1st - The Out - The best sci-fi storytelling makes you feel like you are seeing/reading something that actually happened. Well done droids

2nd - Dredd - some good page turns in this one with the last panel on the previous page making you want to turn over to see what happens.

3rd -  Scarlet Traces - love the green panel bottom of page 4. Brilliant

My Top 3 for Prog 2253

More of the same from last week, i.e. all thrills going well

1st - The Out - can almost smell this episode lol. This thrill always keeps you wondering when you turn the page. Well done

2nd - Dredd - enjoying the Lynch and Boswell artwork and colours on this thrill

3rd -  Scarlet Traces - Amazing colour and battle scenes

Scarlet Traces Is the guy on the first page weeping for the loss of his alcohol on the molotov cocktail? Top notch.

Yeah gave me a chuckle that molotov cocktail joke

My Top 3 for Prog 2251

A bit slow getting around to reading this prog but .... Great cover!!

As someone said a prog full of episode 2's

My top three are:

1st - The Out - best story here I think, reads very busy though on my ipad, prob works better on a paper prog, some laugh out loud moments as Cyd navigates the Out

2nd - Scarlet Traces - Bad Martians!!

3rd - The Diaboliks - Enjoying this run more than previous run
Dredd and Pandora Perfect were fine in a good prog

Nobody top Kenneth

Prog 2113 marks one of the most significent addtions to Tharg's arsenal for sometime as Block Buds marks the enigma that is Kenneth Niemand's debut on Dredd. Its a superb, confident tale. Both classic and fresh as Niemand, with pitch perfect art from Jeff Anderson, introduces giant holographic AI friends to every Block in a test area, designed to help keep the mood of the citizens calmer and safer. It, of course all goes wrong but it such fun.

Its a great Dredd on anyones terms, but from a debut writer on the series... well we're coming back to that aren't we... Niemand had only done the Starlord strip in the 2017 bumper Prog ... unless you believe the conspiracy theroiests that is...

See much as its been a delight to see Niemand so quickly develop into one of the best Dredd writers for years it been as much fun trying to guess who Kenny Who really is. Some remain convinced it Grennie. Other refute the writing style make that a possiblity. If it is a known Droid an appearance on the Thrillcast by the erstwhile radio scripter under a nom-de-plume mean Tharg has gone to extreme lengths to dispell the guesses.

What fun.

Put what matters most is the Prog has gained a wonderful writer and for that Prog 2113 needs to be celebrated.

Hey Colin
Thanks for the reminder to check out the Niemand droids first thrill and first Dredd.
Great to have a quick look back, both strips well done esp for a freshly commissioned droid
I humbly request that you keep the Niemand droid well oiled please Tharg
