Sorry, I forgot. The Fortress of Zarjazity has seen significant progress. I'll collect up the pics from various stages of completion and try to post this weekend.

The Sex Pistols. Just. The Sex Pistols. And their enduring popularity in-spite of being shite and having always been shite.

Your mouth is full of wrong  :)

Well, If Covid hadn't happened I'd be on the road now to Thought Bubble 2020.

Nano-Bolt would have been starting her fourth year on team red-shirt and I would have been looking forward to meeting friends, many of whom I only see at this event. Heck, this year we were looking forward to spending quality time with Mr Mike Carroll and his lovely wife.

Here's to Thought Bubble - the finest convention in the country, and here's to next year!

So sad reading that...

Purely on the basis of who I would like to see more of in the prog (based on my reaction to their previous work) it would be 4-1 to Al. 

No disrespect to Ian, whose work I generally enjoy - he is already romping home with this one, in any case!  But Al is the one that got away (the Next Generation) for me.

This for me ^^^

Scarlet Traces, Stickleback are two of my favourites, but for every one of them there is a Kingmaker or DemX to balance them out for me while with the very odd exception the Ale Wing droid is consistantly tickling my trout... his Dredd's are soo good.

4-1 to the big Al.

I did like the way Chopper and Armitage were portrayed but I'd still rather not see them anymore in any Dredd strips as I feel their stories are played out. I'm starting to feel the same about Anderson tbh.

At least they kept Death's Gang of Four out of it!

Important and topical thread hijacked and dumped in a Cul-de-sac, wheels off and windscreen smash... sorry

Just caught up on the last few progs.  They've been really good and have enjoyed it all; DREDD and Chimpsky being my favourites but others not far behind. And a fine set of covers too. The front of the SK Moore one put me in mind of Ron Smith... the back very much his own thing.

This from met  too ^^^^

only downside was the PSU Judge who had the time to read Trade magazines then info dumped the 'why' on Dredd, still its the Mighty W so we can ignore that!

not without visual support, (her and me)

As for the thinking Rennie would have a creative monopoly, that’d be absurd in the extreme considering how much Abnett pens for the Prog.

I don't FB but isn't there a lot of haters out there in certain places for the GRennie droid and his work/politics/attitude? That could give the theory traction?


Kenneth Niemand 5 : GFD 0

The Niemand droid has perked up the last few years of Tooth for me, long may he/they/it continue.

My only gripe is my old chestnut:
Once again Anderson is portrayed as a very young, pretty, sexualised woman. Dredd aged, Giant aged, even Hershey aged, but Casandra remains forever half-zipped into her leather onesy
She's a middle aged woman who has seen arguably seenmore than Dredd, been through physical, mental and psychological torture that would have crushed just about anyone else and is surely menopausal by now... and not a line, wrinkle or saggy craggy bit.
