Surely the worst ending was Dan Dare?

(Oh hang on, it's not... actually... ended)

No, apparently Pat will write a "last" chapter
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.

From Pat's twitter related to Flesh:

Q: Are you and Clint Langley going to be working on a final chapter for Flesh? It ended on a heck of a cliffhanger...

A: Too busy just now. I'd need to review it and see if it required some rethink for the finale, both in story and art terms. Off hand, I'd say it needed it. I won't just knock it out. It's too important & I think Flesh deserves to go out on a high note, like Leo's Slaine.

All Pat Mills series should now end like the unpublished post-censorship two page wrap up to 'Kids Rule OK':

"Well, Savage/Deadlock/Satanus, this looks like where we part company. Good luck with your social work."

My Top 3 for Prog 2228 :)

1st - Dredd - Joe vs corruption in SJS by Niemand works for me
2nd - Thistlebone - continues the uneasy reveal of more details
3rd - Feral & Foe - 'in' jokes had me chuckling

Extraordinary.

Here's hoping our Styrofoam chomping overlord has something new lined up for Manco.

I’ve been playing catch up with the prog of late. One per evening starting with the regened one 2-3 months ago. I have to say, my main takeaway is how good it is of late. Minor quibbles aside, the galaxy’s greatest is in good hands.

...

Just to add to that, loving the Dredd recently. And I do agree, side quests are a total waste of time.

Hope Leo Manco comes back to the prog on another thrill. Plus, I think I need to buy Book 1 of Thistlebone now even though I have all the progs. Just gorgeous.
