I love that the Behemoth is potentially a sister ship to The Leviathan, doomed by an entirely different type of strange passenger.

Solid prog!

I'm enjoying Dredd but agree on the comments about a lack of Dread. Still v.much appreciating the unexpected team-up.

Full Tilt Boogie is still full tilt fun. I like the grimdark holy war background mixing with the vapidity/irreverence of the 'modern' world. 

I still enjoy The Order, mad as it is. Lost track of exactly who is who and what happened to which version of this timeline or that clone or whatever, but feels pretty apt with the plot. Look forward to seeing how much more gonzo it will get.

Diabolik is a nice return to the world of Caballistics but I miss the 'old team' more with Solomon and Jenny.

The Out is my favourite too, I'm enjoying this semi-reversal of the Grey Area. I like the lighthearted approach, even as we enter heavier territory (perhaps). Reminds me of Halo Jones.

Dredd I like Noam Chimpsky though I agree we've had quite a bit of talking apes recently. Oddly the uplifts in Lawless don't seem to fall in that mental space to me... but in any case, I think I can go one more if it's as appealing as Noam Chimpsky. Congratulations on the biggest nightmare of all though with the introduction of Katy Hopkins College

Survival Geeks remains utterly fan service fun.

Skip TracerI can't really get a grip on this one. Space bounty hunter on a hab-station? Political/military intrigue? Psychic dreamscape battles? Just so much going on and backstory, all of it a bit...shrug. Shame as I think the concept implied by the title could go somewhere but it's the least developed part of the strip.

Aquila I love Aquila. Likewise a bit puzzled by the acid bath but a wizard clearly did it. Play in a semi-regular RPG of post-roman Saxon/Celt monster hunting and Aquila has been a good source of inspiration for this.

Hershey I like finality, even if it's cheekily undermined by having clones and legacy and so on. So Hershey was a bit of a hard sell for me. I liked the end of the line, basically. But I enjoy the strip and love the art and happy to see more of another city, even if I think it would just as fine with any Judge.

(Long time no see guys! Just got busy in other digital spaces thanks to lots of TTRPGs)

You have to admit it's a clever twist on the title though  :D

I don't think that word means what you think it means (:D)

Rewatching Dredd as I'm sure all of us do from time to time. Always something I pick up on each time that makes me appreciate just how great it is.

"12 serious crimes reported every minute, 17000 every day. We can respond to about 6%."
"Which 6%?"
"Your show Rookie. You decide."

A tiny bit of dialogue that really sells how stretched the Judges are.

I won't begrudge your opinions but I will say I've never seen anything so wrong on the entirety of this board, and I keep up with the political thread.

The book is also great.

Super Star Wars, The Adventures of Batman & Robin, Legend Of Zelda and Secret of Mana would take my 16 bit crowns

[I really liked this at the cinema but it does come with a serious health warning. I have yet to meet anyone who hasn't read the book or seen the TV series say that they enjoyed it. There are clearly problems with it.
I would like to break that duck for you. Neither read nor seen the BBC version, but I'm riveted by every second of the film.

Ditto, though recognise the flaws previously highlighted.

I thought the Twilight Zone was poor and disappointing but not the worst thing in the world. Kind of liked the Comedian episode and the Timetravel Camera was fine until the last moments where it all got a little too symbolic but still, thought it was good. Shame they wasted the Terror at 20000ft episode.

Mind you I've stalled midway through so... clearly not so good.

Rewatching Gravity Falls. Boy this was great.

Just read 'Phonogram - Rue Britannia' for the first time and while I was nervous going in, seeing as Britpop has such a specific part in my growing up and to be honest it mirrored exactly my fears. And it knew it, it was completely self aware, but still couldn't save itself... well almost entirely.

Kieron Gillen is ex-NME, isn't he? Phonogram reads exactly like a comic from an NME writer, anyway.

I think he might have written some stuff. To me he's mainly ex PC Gamer/Rock Paper Shotgun

We don't need to get stuck in to changing present things because we'll be teaching kids better for the future

Conversely I couldn't stand even 10 minutes of The Mummy

She never said she supported the Death Penalty despite all those times she supported the death penalty so I imagine she'd say nothing of any worth.
