Wondering whether Return to Armageddon hasn't been included previously because of the page count - if it is forthcoming, what would it be paired with? Thinking Bad City Blue wouldn't be a bad fit.

Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. Daniel Craig has found a brilliant new franchise with his Southarrrwn detective Benoit Blanc. This is great fun, for me better than the first instalment, but it's only on for a week in cinemas before Netflix remove it for a Christmas tentpole.

At least I got to see it it in the cinema, unlike Annihilation.

I'm about halfway through Devlin Waugh: A Very Large Splash and loving it immensely. Rory, Mike and Ales have got to the heart of the character and just run with it, tremendous stuff. Looking forward to the rest. is there enough for another volume in the extension extension extension?

I've only seen the first one but thought Tim Blake Nelson was great. GdT is one of the great film-makers of our time, I think he's as good as Cronenberg, Lynch and Scorsese.

the original was great, Escape from LA was meh, but Kurt reprising Plissken sounds great

The Menu. I really liked this, a proper black comedy. Ralph Fiennes and Anya Taylor-Joy are both brilliant, and as it spins out into the horrific it holds its own internal logic. A couple of things left unexplained, but for me 4/5.

Pat Mills DOES NOT LIKE IT when other writers use 'his' creations.*
Not that he has any problem with people reprinting Flesh Book 1, which he edited rather than wrote (although you can bet he edited it heavily), and Flesh II, which he had nothing to do with as far as I know?


*'His' in the sesne that he came up with/developed the ideas, not that he legally owns them (an entirely separate sore point)

I compare Pat Mills and Roger Waters a lot, in the sense that I really enjoy the stuff they've created in their careers, but they are both contrary so-and-so's about it all. Maybe that deserves another thread all of its own. Or not....

Oh no. Awful news. What a unique and talented man. So many memorable images from his work on 2000AD and elsewhere.

Was just trying to find the Christmas Prog cover vote, if memory serves his awesome work for Prog 398 was the winner.

RIP Kevin.

How official is the extension to 180 issues? Can anyone in the know confirm yay or nay?

Well the mind boggles what 40 more volumes could include. There's loads more Dredd so perhaps volumes of Ron Smith and Steve Dillon's work? Also, maybe:

Ant Wars
Dan Dare
Return to Armageddon
Shako
More Future Shocks, Time Twisters etc.

News / Alan Moore interview

Interview with the Bard of Northampton here: [https://www.theguardian.com/books/2022/oct/07/watchmen-author-alan-moore-im-definitely-done-with-comics?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Other]

A return to Future Shocks seems unlikely, unfortunately.
