In some ways I’m a reluctant Meg reader, only coming on board for the Judgement Day crossover and drifting away until the following Wilderlands crossover, and yet here I am commenting on its 30th anniversary as a now long-time subscriber (you see Mr. Bishop, if you’re reading, proof that the crossover strategy worked…).  Having seen a few low periods, and many re-launches, it’s fantastic to see the Meg still around for its 30th and in such fine form.  Thanks to all involved over the years.  :thumbsup:

I'm another who only started getting The Meg for Wilderlnads, and then I just stuck with it.
Have to agree with this.

I picked up the odd Meg in its first year, but it was the Wilderlands crossover epic that got me reading regularly and ultimately subscribing, many years later!

Happy Big Three-Oh to the Meg!

Dredd - action packed opener! Look forward to the rest of this one. I feel like its going to have big repercussions for Judge Beeney.

Megatropolis - I'm always enjoy an alt-universe and so absolutely LOVED this brand new thrill. Dreddworld meets Batman The Animated Series in style. Loads of cameos from alternative reality versions of characters we know and love/hate. Brilliant stuff!

Dreadnoughts: Breaking Ground - I'm a big fan of the JUDGES novellas so am thrilled to see more of the early years of the Justice Department in the Meg.  Chillingly on the nose.

Anderson Psi Division:  I must confess, I'm a bit lost to who is who in the Psi Div corner of Mega City One, but managed to keep up with this story.  Better than recent Anderson tales, and nice to have a single episode story, but I wasn't totally enamoured with it.

The Returners - As a recent Meg subscriber, I'm not 100% certain what the deal is with The Returners. Is it that they have their minds wiped then get sent on missions/heists? (I should probably just google this).  Anyway, besides, being uncertain as to the goings-on, I enjoyed this. Lovely art. Zingy dialogue. And always enjoy a story set in Brit Cit.

Deliverance - Always nice to have the Dark Judges return.  There is one particular Judge Death panel that is visually revolting but balanced out with a nice bit of humour, which is how I prefer my horror. Gorgeously grotesque!

Lawless - This is very much a personal, subjective thing, but I really don't like it when songs are used in comics, so an entire musical episode was a bit much for me (curse you Buffy The Vampire Slayer!!!!). I just can't decide on a tune in my head and this one has several songs within it.  I ended up reading most of it to the tune of Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious from Mary Poppins (expect the rap bit).  All that aside, the art is still incredible and for a musical episode it was done well, just not my cuppa tea.

Looking forward to Battle Of Britain and enjoyed the Dave Hunt interview (I'm currently reading The Mighty One by Steve Macmanus, so it was nice to get a slightly different perspective of that same era)

I too got last months print included, but don't mind too much (though this months cover definitely warrants a frame)

My Meg story, is that I remember getting the first few issues and picking up occasional ones for crossover stories, but only subscribed fairly recently when I caught up with Lawless.
