Still don't know if he'll see the error of his way and become a part of the team, or if he's about to become the big bad.

Neither, he's dead.

Is he? The last page has him floating off into space, going after the torc, but he is very much alive in the last panel. Or am I missing something?

I just love SinDex. Don’t understand all the naysayers.

Over on the other Internet place there was a recent question as to whether Dan Abnett should write Dredd. Why should he when Sinister Dexter is such a flexible format and allows for all the sorts of stories you can do with Dredd, from comedy one offs, short multi parters to epics?

Tiger Commander.

And er, I don’t really rate the others, so I’ll leave it there.

I’m just utterly speechless....one of the core people on the Forum...hasn’t read the Stainless Steel Rat...ok fair enough....but not read Zenith as well?

All I can say is, get them...they are top thrills.

Well, gosh, I'm flattered!

Both thrills have historically been reprint-lite, and I don't really do digital comics!

Fair enough....no criticism intended. And yes they have been very hard to get hold of. I made sure I snapped up the “recent” Zenith hardbacks, but I was motivated as it’s in my top five or six 2000AD stories.

Elfric. If only for the way he can separate his body to dodge swipes of your sword.

Sorry for being pedantic here but isn't Elfric the character from Moorcock's work while Elric (sans 'f') is the character from Mills'?

I don’t mind a bit of pedantry, but it’s important to be accurate...and no I don’t think that’s right. I’m pretty sure, like 99.9999999% certain, it’s Elfric (with an “f”) in Slaine. Google reckons it’s “Elric” in Moorcock’s work (no “f”).

Just about my favourite 2000AD “hero”: Slaine takes top spot by many a mile.

Trailing in far behind is Aquila.

Slough Feg, if only for that wonderful syntax. But he also has pathos - he's a sad, shambling shell of a thing, while no less a great villain for that.

And while I didn't particularly want to go for two Slaine characters, he has to be joined by Elfric - I've not read Zenith so Masterman's out, and while I love Caballistics, Kostabi was too successful a behind-the-scenes master manipulator to be very memorable.

Thanks - so from your screen shot it looks like I have to do it from the website not the app. Will give it a try later.

Not sure if this is helpful, but I had to go to the "backups" tab in order to download a copy.


I’m new to all this, so please bear with me-  where is the “backups” tab?
