Started prog 126/128, can't remember exactly, but the cover with Dredd arresting an entire East Meg ship. This remains my favourite cover. Inside was unlike any comic, ever, completely immersive, gripping, and often troubling. 15/16 years later, I grew up and stopped reading. Only to inch back bit by bit. As you do.

Living abroad, and finding a sub too pricey, I only read the prog and meg occasionally these days, which is why the new proper trades operation (allied to the BD, it must be said) have been a real boon. Beautiful books. And it's obvious that the ever underestimated John Wagner is completely at the top of his game and career right now. Regarding the tpbs, however, my only complaint is when storylines are left dangling when publishing projects get prematurely axed ... I'm particularly thinking VCs and Red Seas ... will I EVER know how these end? It's a bit galling to shell out cash on a publishing premise and then be left marooned mid-story forever.

Not at all interested in digital. Books and comics are tactile and beautiful 3D objects; and covers are designed to be seen by all, provoking intrigue from neighbours as to what levels of thrillpower may be lurking within.

I'm a writer. I live a long way away. And there's little more to say. Nice forum.
