Prog 2186 - You Got a Bone to Pick ?



The Good news is that my copy has arrived first thing this morning -  :)

not had a chance to read it yet , but
it looks like the Royal Mail shutdown for Postal Deliveries has ended
 - as I also got some 1/48 Photo-etch that I ordered in the UK today
the cover is a beauty by Cliff Robinson ( colours Dylan Teague  )
inside

Dredd - the great build up and action continues with the descent into Chaos
( the artwork is as ever , superb )

Sinister Dexter - more rollicking fun and enjoyable

Full Tilt Boogie
- now that I have read the 1st Episode from the Regened Issue a while ago -
the 3rd arc of the story ( 2nd Episode here ) makes a lot of sense - its a great new story
I won't give any spoilers - but a nice continuation

The Order
- shock horror - actually , yet again not bad at all

The Diaboliks - yet again a good story from Gordon Rennie

I am one happy man that my thrill power arrived on my door step this morning
and I am the one first on the Press Release !
overall 4 and a half out of 5 Stars

I haven't read the issue, but that's a great cover - feels like some lost illustration from a Fighting Fantasy book that existed only in dreams.

Hope this doesn't turn into Dredd's version of the Rogue classic 'The Hit'!

Kinda feels it may be going that way...

The covers reminds me of Scream
Old age is the Lord’s way of telling us to step aside for something new. Death’s in case we didn’t take the hint.

The pen is mightier than the sword if the sword is very short, and the pen is very sharp.

Saturday prog was one of a number of pleasant surprises today.  Along with this month's meg.

TBH Dredd seems strangely familiar.  Thinking about events:

- bizarre atmospherics grounding aircraft;
- gathering multitudes outside the city wall;
- supernatural forces at work ...

Now if a certain mutant bounty hunter were to suddenly show up (oh, hang on ... )

I could be totally off-beam here but I feel a little like a certain Necromage might turn out to be involved ...

Great prog! Praise to Tharg. Full Tilt Boogie continues to impress. Felt SinDex art a little rushed this week.

Sign of the (end) times man. :D

Sabbat wouldn't leave Williams a lot of options for his trademark dismemberment scenes.

Saturday Prog and Megazine here in the Calhab wastes.

Dredd artwork is magnificent, a lit of familiar elements  but a great ride!
Saving all the rest for a post exercise fireside immersion in Thargs world. Thank you mighty one!

Reading Diaboliks has convinced me that Gordon Rennie would be perfect for writing Devlin Waugh if Ales Kot is ever unwise enough to give that up.

Reading Diaboliks I want to say that I think the logo should be B&W to match the art and I'm glad this isn't running at the same time as Feral & Foe.
