"Be aware. I have defecated."

This should be a t-shirt print


Shame to see another part of the Cabs world go down but much as I love it (and would tend to argue this is the strongest series in the CabsVerse) it's tough to vote against Strontium Dog

The Returners reads so much better in collected form that it did serialised in the Meg. I missed the first part which didn't help and I have no recollection of having read the last part (although I've read those issues of the Meg so must have done so as I don't tend to skip stuff). Reading it in a couple of sittings the character work from Si really shines through as our reluctant band of misfits try to discover what's going on while surviving the various different environments they find themselves in. The art is fantastic throughout with loads of big splash pages and wide panels. Really glad this got included here and definitely worth a cherry-pick for those on the fence about it.

Also good news in the backup material in the 2nd Brass Sun volume.
Edington and Culbard are still planning to reunite for a sixth series at some point in the near future. "That's the plan!" says Edginton. "We've both been off doing other things, so getting our schedules to line up has been tricky. But I'm getting all the scripts written so that as soon as Ian is free, he can jump on them."

"I hope it will happen at some point soon" adds Culbard, who is confident that he can simultaneously juggle working on both Brass Sun and Brink. "Book five of Brass Sun was drawn at the same time as Brink book two, so it's entirely possible!"

Ordinary is good fun but I'm a sucker for occult horror and Reardon's b/w art is a great fit for the strip. So Diabloliks for me.

Ro- Busters 1 is here!

Contents is all the Starlord strips (with colour spreads intact); Earthquake Control, from the 1978 Starlord Annual; and Death on the Orient Express.

Is that basically identical to The Complete Nuts and Bolts vol 1 minus the 2 memoirs stories that we've already had in ABC Warriors vol 4 (I'd check but my copy is buried somewhere in a mountain of boxes while I'm doing some redecorating)?

I guess book 2 will be Terra-Meks, Fall and Rise, the remaining annual stories and Ro-jaws RoboTales. Hopefully they won't repeat the bits we've already had. Might end up selling my Nuts and Bolts books as I don't think I need 2 copies of all of this.

Maybe - depends if other intelligent life has evolved anywhere else during that time frame. It might be we're the late bloomer and all the other intelligent life managed the transition from simpler life forms in a fraction of the time. As far as I'm aware there's no real evidence either way on that one, just because we haven't found anything doesn't prove there's nothing to find.

Savage (before it became him guest-starring in the proto-Ro-Busters, at any rate) was better than Invasion.

Yeah in a Savage vs Invasion tie I'd definitely be voting Savage.

That's not the tie we've got though and in this one I'll be voting Thistlebone.

The Incal by Jodorowsky and Moebius would seem the obvious suggestion from Humanoids.

Shako is good old school fun but it's no match for Brink

Lawless for me to.

Hondo hd some fun stories but none of them are in the same league as that first series of Bad Company

Two thrills with stunning art that really suits the stories they're telling. I found The Order read much better collected than it did in the weekly in the Prog but even then it's huge cast and convoluted plotting makes it hard to keep track of what's going on. On the flips side I'm not sure The Out really knows where it's going but I'm not sure that really matters when it's such an enjoyable ride.

The Out

Both great characters with their own unqiue styles. Davis' art is the clincher for me so it has to be Ampney Crucis
