Portrait, because it featured a character from my hometown (no, I'm not going to say which hometown that is).

Top Dog!

Outlaw - probably partially because it was my first epic Stront story.  Plus one story introduced a Stix while another introduced two Stixes!

Like they did with Preacher.
The LAPD reference is specifically calling out Lucifer :-)

A quote from Gaiman (when forced) told the story of Sandman in 25 words or less: "The Lord of Dreams learns that he must change or die, and makes his decision".  Being captured for the best part of a century was the catalyst to the change, so I'm wondering how it could be left out...

It's seeming to me that where the real star of Judge Dredd is often Mega-City One, the real star of Anderson could be the rest of Psi-Division (and supernatural adversaries).

Any story in which an accountant is the ultimate hero really doesn't feel like it sits well in the 2000AD as Uncle Pat oringially concieved it....

It's almost like 1977 2000AD was planned out by somebody who trained to be an accountant but then didn't follow that career path ;-)

But arguably the most interesting element of the strip just happened and now it’s done. It could be an intergalactic Lone Wolf and Cub (and with the doubly rare combination of a father/daughter relationship and non-white leads), if it wasn’t so mired in cliché.

Funny that you should mention Lone Wolf & Cub, considering the next prog's Future-Shock.

Anyway, two strips to go... one's a ostensibly light-hearted story about a woman heading into the unknown after a radical change of identity, and the other - yeah you get the drift. The difference is that one's a triumphant piece of work that'll hopefully grace the prog for some time to come while the other looks hopelessly out of place in the current line-up.

Does The Out feature a change of identity?

Oof - I see there's a 15p price rise next prog. They like to sneak those in after a jumping-on prog, don't they.

I did notice that...

Two-Faced Terror was the first appearance of a gronk, wasn't it?  Not to mention the Smiling Chukwalla.

Not a Gronk, but the Gronk. Also the first time that Alpha goes up against one of his own kind.

Was it?  I couldn't remember if it was The Gronk we know and love, or the short-lived brother of that gronk...

Although this does mean we missed out on Disco Fiends. Tsk.

I mean, we're often getting Fiends stories from different time periods in the Hallowe'en specials.  All you have to do is wish hard enough...
