It's very, very tough because they're two very different stories, which is amazing given that they're by the same writer around the same era.  Breaks my heart to say it but Watchmen squeaks through for me; I've read it over and over again and it truly deserves its reputation.  Comics that came after Watchmen are different from the ones that came before.

Which is not to say Halo Jones isn't also one of the best Sci fi stories in any medium ever, of course.

SNP's Ian Blackford calls Boris Johnson 'a liar' in Commons - and this time, the Speaker lets him carry on.

Gary Gibbon's goes for the throat in this C4 interview: Boris Johnson questioned on Partygate during India trip – as pressure builds at home

I'd almost feel sorry for him if it weren't for the fact that he's a horrible, self-serving, arrogant bully that deserves to fail.

I must say that I got a warm feeling of schadenfreude while watching Johnson squirm like that.  And then...'we got Brexit done and rolled out the vaccines' in a single sentence.  I really, really hope he's consigned to history very, very soon.

I thought The Straitjacket Fits was great fun.   But I don't think our Bish-OP will be upset or even surprised to learn that this will be a Chopper landslide.  Should have finished after the Supersurf 11 bloodbath of course but everything leading up to that was some of the best material Tharg has ever had to offer.

Wish I could be optimistic about it, but if a conman who helped to organise an anti-democratic coup is a shoe-in for next American president, I think Johnson might weather this one out.

Not that his heroic war efforts will help any Ukrainian refugees, who cartoon villain Priti Patel wants to be sent to a distant dictatorship. Or is this just a bit of red meat to distract from the fact that the UK is being led by proven law-breakers and liars?

Really enjoyed that, thanks as always, Eamonn.

Al Ewing, on Dredd.  Nobody apart from Wagner is more like Wagner, though Ken Niemand is a close second.

I love the stuff Garth Ennis does these days but I never liked his prog scripts.

I'll go with:
1. DR and Quinch
2.  Droid Life

Big Dave is a close third.

There was also Hewligans Haircut.  Again  a suggestion  not a vote

GMozz for Zenith.  It was absolutely brilliant.

And, though I never thought I'd say it, Garth for non prog stuff.  I hated his Dredds and his Stronts.  Preacher is a bit up its own arse.  But once he got all the Pogues and Bill Hicks and Unforgiven out of his system, he was brilliant.  I genuinely had tears in my eyes at the end of one of his Crossed stories.

I'm tempted to say Anderson, but I'll go with The Order.  Love both Kek W and John Burns but I've just never got into this.

I actually liked the MC1 history creeping into Deadworld and still look forward to a future series or two.
