Prog / Re: prog 2814 End of days

... and I’ve just read Tharg’s “apology” for the cover on twitter given the real world events. Can’t believe I didn’t spot the coincidence while writing my notes above.

You’ve got the prog wrong and the tag line too. Can we correct it?

Great prog though! Dredd off to a grand start. Feel like it’s been some time since the last ‘epic’. Really liked The Burnham’s future shock, and having just gotten into Cabalistics via the MC I’m excited for more from that world.

Is there any reason the cover isn’t full bleed? Is it supposed to be coming through the flag? Great Dredd but bit strange.

#s 71 & 72 just turned up. COVID-19 seems to have had very little affect on these subscriptions after all, at least for now. The books are printed in Spain so is it conceivable there could be a delay further down the pike? The Warhammer series has been staggered due to them being put together by GW who closed shop temporarily.

Surely most of today's readers were reading the Meg three years ago? Do we really need Havn reprinted so soon? It's not as if there's a shortage of alternatives.
I've not read it, for one. Only went combo sub last year.

Perhaps the repro is a nightmare, or Tharg’s already happy with the existing War Machine trades in the wild. I dunno.
The print version has been unavailable for such a long time, I really hoped it would pop up here as it hits the sweet spot for me nostalgia wise (even if not for everyone's quality standard).

Well done that man for keeping on asking! An excellent bit of news. Sad there's no War Machine though.

Hachette is apparently Death's Head #1-7 “and material from Marvel Heroes #33”.
That’s the British strip by Simon Williams isn’t it. Standalone ‘vs Hulk’ story I think.
Glad I skipped it overall though.

Prog / Re: prog 2182: So long and geek out

As someone who listens to the Thrillcast I’d heard the Future Shock already. It worked out pretty well and with some great first time art. A great prog all round. Happy for the Hershey moment! And fab knowing jokes in Dredd too. Suddenly wondering if the extra Regened issues are just a way to charge more for four progs throughout the year. They did say they sold well though! Thanks once again to the House Of Tharg for keeping the thrills flowing!

Is Blueberry just mentioned in terms of Colin's time working on the series, rather than some much wanted news that its getting an English translation?
Yes I'm sorry to say nothing is mentioned about an english language edition. What a shame.

I'd never heard of Blueberry before. Suddenly seeing where Quitely's Missionary Man came from! I knew Moebius was an influence but it's very evident from some of the album covers.

Here's a Humble Bundle style deal on a big heap of Humanoids books. The $15 tier worked out as about £13. Well worth it!

I've popped this to the Comic Bargains bit as more appropriate there.
thanks colin

Stone - Armitage was a worthy read and although Diggle has gone on to write standout strips for other publishers his 2000AD legacy is as Tharg not as droid.

Anyone happen to know what happened to the ol' DH (and Deagon's Claws) MGN Collection HCs? 

They appear to have vanished from the timeline!
I’ve got a copy of Dragon’s Claws - 171 spine. Was shipped from FP in early March.

Neimand for me! Really firing on all cylinders RN.
