Prog / Re: Prog 2183: Regened - Five knockout thrills!
« on: 29 May, 2020, 10:39:14 AM »
Dredd - really good art, and a great read until it just... stops. It doesn't finish, it stops.

Anderson - Best in Prog, a well written and illustrated tale, no criticism.

Future Shock - Not bad, if a ridiculous premise in EVERY SINGLE WAY. Okay if you can get over that.

Finders & Keepers - Surprised myself by enjoying this. Not sure anyone knows just what to do with them yet.

Stronty Pup - A bit meh, it just didn't feel right. Better stories in Dogbreath, so get your fix there.

Loved ALL the art in this. 7/10 and the best regened yet.

BANSHEE now on Sky Atlantic to download

Fantastically violent series. Comparable to Spartacus for good story, blood, sex and swearing

Two days left to back issue to - £4 for a pphysical copy.

"The setting is clear, an alternative Earth.

A Roman Empire where enslaved Dragons are the Gladiators instead of Humans. No less barbaric as it becomes clear on the 5th Preview page, the Dragons are sentient, intelligent beings.

That is a clear intent of this story, to consider the other side of something. I’d hope we all know slavery is wrong, blet alone forcing creatures to kill each other for our entertainment.

Novels such as White Fang have explored the same ideas without using Humans. This being a fantasy setting the similarities between the sensibilities of a Human and a Dragon are plainer to see.

It is not an overcomplicated plot and it isn’t intended to be. This book isn’t pretending to be something it’s not. It is an homage to a past era in British Comics and it works really well.

64 Pages flew past  for me as it is such a clear and engaging story. Knowing what happens to our scaly protagonists is intriguing. Are their myths truth or just a dream of an enslaved race who has forgotten freedom?

Ed’s Art is a great fit for Alan’s easy style of storytelling. The Dragons are engaging characters and he has to deal with Air, Land and Sea in this story which he does well. Ships need to look like they are displacing water and they need to be consistent in design and scale from varying angles. That sounds fairly obvious but it isn’t easy to achieve; Ed has nailed it."

Okay, so issue two is funded, in a couple of days, but it will run for 2 weeks to get the stragglers

Issue three will be along in 2 or three months. To keep informed just like the facebook page

Hi everyone. Issue two of Sentinel is now active on Kickstarter, from just £4 for a copy. It's a 64 page, black and white square bound comic like Starblazer and has gone down very well.

Here's the link, which includes full details and the first 9 pages to hopefully whet your appetite.

Say it ain't so!  :'(

It was fun doing over 80 of these but you have to stop some time and we're moving on to Sentinel as it's an original IP that we can print!

I'd cove to have printed a not for profit complete collection of these but I doubt it would be welcomed at Rebellion HQ

Asterix and The Normans for me

- The Normans names are brilliant

- Justforkix is brilliant

 - The Normans jumping off the cliff flapping their arms is brilliant!

Anubis does not have the head of a cat. That would be Bastet/Bast.

Glad it wasn't just me! What a terrible error to make, specially when Bast is funnier!

As much as I really enjoyed it I thought the lettering throughout was weak - especially on Dredger.

Dredger lettering is awful
