As TordelBack is saying do not waste energy watching How it Ends. Best part of the movie is the credits, which you can skip with the rest of the movie

I brought all 3 volumes digitally and every time I read it it feels like completely new. Everything about Charley's War oozes brilliance. Hopefully they will release the non-Mills story-line as well.

Nice looking cover and hopefully the special can become a yearly publication going forward

I suppose it's easy to ask for more of these kinds of complete stories (which I often do), but you have to wonder about the long-term return for Tharg: it fills pages for a few months, then it's gone, with limited potential for future content or revenue.  Even the best of these (Cradlegrave, Shadows, Zaucer of Zilk etc) seem to struggle to find reprint space, and when they do it's often in a grab-bag of themes which don't necessarily add value to each other (bundling Colony Earth and Family, anyone?). Doubt the potential licencees are lining up either: better to give Uncle Pat another 60-page run of Anti-Hero Lineup#17 versus Mirrored Villain Lineup#43, keep that IP in circulation.

I agree with what you are saying but in many cases not all stories require a sequel or a multiple series. I rather have less ABC Warriors (and few other Mills stories) than a retelling of the same story. Leatherjacket, was a great story on its own (this at least was collected). This is the type of alone standing stories I would like to see more off.

Angel Zero was one off the first new series I read when I returned from my hiatus. As you said this had a beginning, middle and an end. This was a hugely entertaining series. I would like more of this type of once-off series.

The prog is still going strong

Dredd - the art is fantastic and the story is looking very promising

The Order and Deadworld - there is two things common about both of them and it is the stellar story telling from Kek-W and both brilliant artists suites the story.

Grey Area - RIP

But aren’t all stories reincarnations of other stories? In Hollywood’s case its is reboots. The American comic scene rebirths. Originality can be so overrated, I would rather have a good solid story. I am getting to philosophical here just enjoy the story………….

Hmmm - a team of past-it veterans and green rookies has to save the day ... well that's never been done before.  ;)

That is why it is not called The Originals  :lol: .... but anyway if you like Dan Abnett's work I am sure you will enjoy this

I have read the first volume and I can diffidently recommend this.

The write-up:

"It is the far future; the human race has finally colonized the galaxy, preserving an era of prosperity that's only possible because of The Hypernaturals. They're a celebrated, galaxy-wide superhero task force that keeps the peace. That is, until they all mysteriously vanish. Now, as the galaxy teeters on the brink of chaos, it's up to a group of retired and long forgotten Hypernaturals -- and their novice recruits -- to save the galaxy from complete destruction. Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning, the superstar writing duo behind ANNIHILATION and THE LEGION, launch an all-new original graphic novel series that takes cosmic super-heroes to a new frontier."

I find Mark Harrison’s art on Grey Area has a certain cartoony quality, which it didn’t have on stuff like The Vermin Stars or Glimmer Rats.

If you look at Prog 1872 and 1873 I believe that was his first work on Grey Area, his art for me was much more clearer and the coloring was much less abrasive. His work here was quite excellent.
