Prog / Re: Prog 2301: Primate Scream

I can’t remember the last time I read a Future Shock that I liked. Yes I get why they exist, but they do nothing for me anymore.
It seems obvious that Honor Vincent is destined for bigger things, so give her a damn series already.

Indigo Prime. But only for the first few series, not the modern one.

A difficult one for me, as I never liked Rogue and Jaegir needs to be read all the way through for me to appreciate it, I think.

Jaegir. Because I do at least want to read it.

It was never about tyranny. The right to bear arms was conceived so that pioneers could steal land from natives by force, and so that slaveholders could keep their slaves in check.

Winner winner chicken dinner.

The concept of 'right to bare arms' against an incumbent tyrant was and continues to be a hollow justification for the real reasons. It makes arms dealers a lot of money.

Dredd is fun, some nice lines as well.

Chimpsky is very intriguing, one of those strips that you REALLY want to see what's next.

Enemy Earth doesn't do much for me

Future Shock is okay.

Hershey looks gorgeous and is a decent start

Bit harsh. My point was that the system wasn't "designed" to allow mass-shootings - that would be tinfoil hattery - but to address a realistic concern. The Founding Fathers weren't about to exchange the tyranny of kings for the tyranny of presidents and the right to bear arms was baked in as one of those checks and balances. The tragic consequences are incontrovertible but not designed to be so. Technology has outstripped the scope of the laws and fear has eclipsed their spirit.

And I have very little sympathy for any human being who deliberately harms another.

It's got fuck all to do with defense against tyranny. There are country's that don't allow their citizenry to be heavily armed, which don't suffer from commonplace mass shootings. And there's the USA - which does, and which does.

Tis as simple as ABC. (Although it doesn't surprise me that Shark has some sympathy for the mass shooters.)

But there are also countries like Canada who have similar levels of gun ownership without the same number of mass shootings (a point made in more depth in Bowling for Columbine)

Megazine / Re: Meg 448: Graveyard Shift

Controversially I'll say I slightly preferred the Prog to the Meg. The tongue in cheek, chaotic nature of the former suited the provided more scope for fun and invention, while the serial form of the latter meant at times it read like a Strontium Dog tale (which is no bad thing but perhaps not the order of the day). Not having read any Diamond Dogs it was nice to see James Peaty serving up something so much better than Skip Tracer.

Anyway, shocking as they were, the contents of the Meg pale into insignificance compared to those of the floppy. I still can't quite get my head around the idea that dozens (scores? Hundreds?) of the prog's most iconic layouts were originally sketched by Robin Smith in layout form. Mind blown.

(My cover was on the right way, BTW)
