It's amazing how Wagnery a Wagner Dredd is, great art too, superb.

MegaTropolis, good intro, It will be interesting to see where this goes, much prefer this to 'world Judge' stories. Fantastic art, reminded me of Warren mags for some reason.

I love Mike Carrolls world building and the art is great, I'd be happy to see this as a semi permanent feature like Lawless.

Anderson was a decent one off, low key. Big event Anderson stories never work for me, I much prefer the investigative stories, like the Possessed. I'd like to see where McHugh could take Anderson.

The Returners, I'm on the fence. Loved the first series, not so much the second. Spencer is a great writer and the art is lovely too. Wait and see!

Deliverance, not my cuppa. Frazer was the last time I think I enjoyed the DJ's properly, the DOC appearance was fun, but we never really got how they got away from PJ. It has it fans and tbf it's well written and drawn, just not for me.

Lawless was just great, like something from mid eighties W&G Dredd. The depth and quality of the world that the creators have made is on show when they can pull a story like this off.

Dave Hunt interview-  Dave is a great guy, nice interview and great to see him getting the recognition he deserves.

The Floppy, I rarely read them, (unless old or Treasury ones)  and then do a binge at Christmas. I was ambivalent when I heard about this, but its not bad, lot of stuff I had forgotten about! The only think I could say, more images!

Overall a great Meg, it has always struggles a bit with its identity. It has a good core of stories for the future Dredd, Lawless, Anderson, Carroll's proto Dredd world and Anderson if done well. A non Dredd world strip would be good too.

TB, personally I avoid all comments on articles, 99% of FB and Twitter unless its comic related, and even then I avoid a lot of it.
Avoid avoid avoid, especially if you think you might change anyone's mind, think of the Bull McCabe and the sea.

Other Reviews / Re: The Battle of Britain Special - BATTLE PICTURE WEEKLY

I really enjoyed this, a good chunky read, with the feel of old Battle and yet reading contemporary. As for the woke comment, its a bit of damned if you do etc, was Charleys War woke?

One of the real highlights of this and other specials is walking into the newsagents and picking up a new comic with new content.
 Rebellion are doing these special now for two(?!) years in newsagents, it probably would have been easier to just release these into comic shops. It hopefully means there is a market out there for comics outside the narrow confines for the comic shop and that these specials become some form of a regular publication and continue with the new content.

But he's kinda got a point!

I only read the first few issues of The Boys, didn't like it much so never went any further. Is it similar to Marshal Law?

Wow, missed voting (I think!). Nemesis is great, but top, what do I know!

Stront way out on front for me.

These comps are great guys, thanks for organising!

I remember that phrase, but from the kids tale of when Oisín returned to Ireland from Tír na nÓg after 300 years.

 Seeing some slight looking guys trying to shift a rock, he lent over and moved it with one hand, but the stress broke the girth on the saddle of his horse, and he hit the ground, instantly becoming old and dying soon after.

Whereupon one of the slight lads said 'In those days they were giants' 

Might not be where you are remembering it from, but that's what popped in my head!
