Hadn't you heard? America Jara sent a droid of herself to the Statue of Liberty, and has been working in the Cursed Earth to send an army of Bennett Beeny invisible ninja clones to fight the judges in a forthcoming action packed Garth (Sleez n Ryder, Time Flies) Ennis adventure.

FTFY  ;)

Winwood and Cord didn't actually die. Or, being Indigo Prime operatives, they were dead already.

True, but much like Chopper in Song of the Surfer, the end of Killing Time is infinitely better if they do, as they appear to, Cease to Be.

What he said.  I recently re-read that Garth Ennis Chopper resurrection strip in the Megazine, and while it was fairly entertaining (if surprisingly smutty for the time), I would gladly exchange it for the memory of Chopper dying the absolutely monumental death that John and Colin gave him.

I'm wayyy behind in progs.  I've only read the first Hershey episode so I shouldn't judge, but I have to say I'm very saddened to see yet another poignant and unforgettable McNeil-illustrated death being reversed.

Don't forget Johnny Alpha!  ;)
Just America and Bennet Beeny left to bring back now...  :o

Personally, I think we've had more than enough of the nostalgia thrills in this collection.
I'd prefer the extension to stick to Rebellion/Matt Smith era stuff.

Film & TV / Re: 'Fear the walking dead' - Whats the verdict so far?

Just watch Day of the Dead, then move on. Nothing from the Walking Dead, or it's spin offs, get anywhere near close.

We all know Buttonman wins...
Maybe re-title this as 'Ultimate 3rd place after Wagner & Watson'?*

*Y'know... Wagner & Watson has a real ring to it. A private detective double-act from the mid sixties, who specialise in various arcane.... um... things.

You get the gist!

Arthur Wyatt, no contest.

Ah, this is a tough one. On the one hand, Peter Hogan wrote Strontium Dogs, and as many have said he was a light in the dark of the era. I also really like David Baillie too - he's a heck of a writer and deserves his place in the comp.

On balance, I'm going with Hogan.

Hogan for me too, for all the reasons stated above.

McConville for me.
This may be because I love watching (reading?) writers and artists improve as they go on, and good as he is I can see Rory moving onto bigger and better things.

MacManus without a shadow of a doubt.

Not gonna lie - I see these two as equal writers, but Steve MacManus has one of the best ASMR voices I've ever fallen asleep to, so Steve wins.

I fully appreciate that this makes my vote pointless.... ;)

Bish-Op for me.
His Dredd novels are great, his continuation of Fiends is great, Space Girls was..... in the prog, I guess  :-\

But still Bish-Op for me  :thumbsup:

I'm voting Guy Adams, but still rate Parkhouse as a great writer, almost on par with his artwork.

Please Tharg, give Steve Parkhouse the writing reins for Luke Kirby, and get John Ridgeway to draw it all!

Remarkably, Hershey is rapidly taking the crown as my least favourite thing ever published in 2000AD. There's no denying the artistic talent involved, or the storytelling ability demonstrated, but the actual story it's telling is not one I am able to enjoy. I'll try to remember the dignified send-off John Wagner gave Hershey, as opposed to... this.

I hear you.
On the one hand, any excuse to get Simon Fraser and Rob Williams in the prog is a good one, especially when the work is this well crafted.
On the other hand, the once poignant death scene is now just a ruse that it appears Dredd was in on (which makes Dredd a better actor than I gave him credit for!)

Pretending it's a 'What If...' story is helping me enjoy it!

Niemand for me  :thumbsup:

Great point about titles. A quarantine-driven re-reado of the superb Hachette Brothers of the Blood volume shows the Fraser droid has previously in this area - an unmemovable chunky logo built into the cityscape was most welcome.

Yup. Love a title incorporated into the artwork.
Seem to remember Jock doing something similar when he drew the classic Judge Dredd logo into a page.
Still don't understand why that logo isn't used any more.

Hmmmmm... I'm voting Dave Stone.
I do think Andy Diggle has a better pedigree of one-off tales, but nothing that beats the first series of Armitage in my eyes.

So, based on that and, as mentioned, the fleshing out of Brit-Cit... I vote for Stone!
