Megazine / Megazine 433: Day of Dark Judgement!
« on: 15 June, 2021, 09:17:10 PM »
A mixed bag this month...

Dredd.... oh dear... This is I'm sorry to say, Millar level stuff as far as we are portraying Dredd (and possibly wth the Sino-Cit stuff too).  Dredd beating up citizens for his own amusement!?!  I dont thnk even Millar went that far!

Devlin is a great read by contrast - how to take someone elses strong vision and do a story that fits that vision.

Diamond Dogs and Deliverance I am not really keeping up with - not grabbing me, but the Returners remains interesting and nicely illustrated.

Articles were engaging  - I'm keeping my eye on that Johnson fellow as a potential star of the future (keeping my eye on the otehr Johnson fellow as well, but for different reasons!)

Mechastopheles was a handy reprint as it means I can go back and read the new story having refreshed myself of the previous this morning.

General / Voting Coupons
« on: 15 May, 2021, 04:09:21 PM »
Watching Pat Mills on the Lawless panel, he raises an interesting point about voting coupons, though obviously Pat's memory can "cheat", so my question is thus:

when did the voting coupon vanish?

Prog / Prog 2228 - The Slayer & The Slain
« on: 17 April, 2021, 11:16:50 AM »
A good prog this week - can't bring to mind what is missing from last weeks to make way for Slaine?  I;d presumed we'd be waiting for the end of the 3riller


Dredd is well wrtten, but I'm really havinng to pretend a lot of the previous "evil SJS" tales had ever happened - I suppose that really isnt that great a hardship - Imagine this story taking place in a universe without those and it's a solid thriller, though Asher's use of applied violence on citizen is one thing,on SJS judges quite another! Wonder what he is up to with his big wrench - off to the Undercity if he has any sense!

Feral and Foe remains enjoyable, sometimes falling over the wwong side of meta for me (side-quests), but solid entertainent again


Slaine is glorious to look at and exciting stuff, but not really what Pat was promising - finished in a way no other writer will ever be able to take him on?  Erm, if I hadnt read Pat's Twitter, I'd still be eagerly awaiting the obvious Book 2 of this, resolving all those dangling threads.  Not that it isnt an "end" of sorts, but a "final" end? I like the idea that Slaine    can't stop the British Empire, beause, we know that's true, but he can "drag it's name in the dirt" - Slaine as Internet Troll?  Hmmm

Other Reviews / KING'S REACH: 25 years at the top
« on: 19 January, 2021, 06:00:21 PM »
Anyone working their way through it?

Finding it bizarrely addictive, but it is also bringing me back on board with Pat Mill's opinion!

He spends a lot of the early part of the book decrying the short sightedeness of a system that was patently inefficient and top heavy, run by people with Titles, castles, yachts and private airplances ( and that's just the Union reps!). 

Then when it comes to creator rights he uses the exact opposite arguments....

Still, a fascinating read!

News / Among The Living GN - Dredd exclusive version available
« on: 21 November, 2020, 01:06:15 PM »
Hopefully this doesnt belong in the copyright infringement section! 

May have to take the plunge on this if I can find more detail about it....Each song has it's own story, so what will be the "I am the Law" tale....

General / Prog drought!
« on: 11 October, 2020, 03:59:53 PM »
Has anyone else had a problem with their progs?

I am three saturdays down without a prog, coinciding with my Annual Subscription being taken at the start of the month - contacting Subs and they have put me on hold until Friday on the proviso that post can be three weeks delayed, but it seems to me that this is not normal!

I went out and bought 2201 last week, but no 2202 or 2203 as yet... If nothing turns up tomorrow, tempted to buy 2202 before it goes off the shelves and just ask for my sub to be pushed forward a couple of weeks.

I seem to recall having to get in touch with Subs last year with my annual renewal not "sticking", but they fixed it pretty quickly that time....anyone else have similar problems?

This is a game tht has caught my eye and looks like it needs some KS love - the art is particularly lovely (getting a Full Tilt Boogie vibe from it) . Love to see a Wizards of Earthsea comic book adaptation from this artist (or FTB's team while I'm thinking about it).  The game itelf seems to have an interesting bag of ieas too

This actually looks like quite an interesting game with the added bonus we get a cool looking (yet curiously not really named here?) Major Eazy mini!

Prog / Prog 2191 - Let's Boogie!
« on: 18 July, 2020, 12:45:13 PM »
Dredd will eat itself


Full tilt has a bit of a talky episode here and I'd have reconfigured the cliffhanger to not take the sting out if it, but enjoying it for all its odd pacing at times

Diaboliks feels like it is deliberately setting itself in the same world as Dr Sin, let alone Caballistics -this is a good thing.

The Order I have lost track of too far past, so no ready until such time as I eer get to a reread

The Out swerves from where it might have one, with hume 2 mainly there to help give Cyd a push in a direction that otherwise (and kinds still does) feel a bit plot driven rather than character driven - but can't complain as where it is going should be interesting stuff.

Prog / Prog 2174 - Blind Fury!
« on: 21 March, 2020, 01:40:25 PM »
A cover that it took me a bit of time to recognise as A: Will Simpson and B: Aquila - nice enough, though!

Dredd is fun if a bit exposition heavy - great art and nice idea for a twist on "Dredd meets his cultural counterpart"

Saving the rest but just to say, wonderful Star Scan by Eoin Coveney - Thought it was Mike Collins for a second! Very classic, very dynamic!

Website and Forum / Using the 50% discounts
« on: 28 February, 2020, 10:18:09 PM »
So I log into my account and I have two 50% discounts - one runs out in August, so better get that gone....

But how? It talks about a voucher code, but all I can see are two boxes that tell me what the discount is for and when it runs out - no code?

Where, what, when, who?  No mention of it on the official faceboook, or here - is it a fan thing?  I even doodled a Dredd today.....I can't stand the confusion in my mind!

Not seen a thread for these guys? Entertaining jump around Dredd, with welcome excursions into the 2st C - even a discussion about last weeks Dredd and prog!

Possibly they are hiding from us pedants waiting to strike, but curiously, the odd gap here or there in knowledge or misremembering actually works, especially for filling us in on the experience of being an American Dredd fan trying to piece it all together!

Prog / Prog 2150 - You want Thrills, Earthlets?
« on: 23 September, 2019, 08:34:00 PM »
Yes I do!

And Dredd delivers in spades - I am intrigued by what Hershey is up to FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE!.  Sad, funny and setting up so much anticipation for where this might go

Brink take us elsewhere, and very glad to have this back - beautiful comics

The Anderson story is a bit generic jump on prog - exactly what you'd expect from a Judge Anderson bingo tale - not badly told, Jake Lynch is always interesting on the eye, but no surprises

Leaving Deadworld and Defoe for later, but Defoe art from SK Moore looks like it could become something special, though hard to tell where it will go long term - I'll be interested in how his style develops but a strong enough start in terms of potential
