It was a bit brutal, but he is a vlone of Dredd and Dredf's done plenty worse. I toughy it was lampshaded quite nice by Dredd's explanation of the Judges's SoP.  And at some point Rico has to get fed up searching for his ctitically injured and secretly abducted Pops.

I thought the same. Though Dredd has done similar things in the past - 'So my aim was off.'

Yeah, that's true enough. It never quite sits right with me though, even less so these days.

I am reading light novels at kisslightnovels. My favourite light novel is solo leveling.  This is one of the best.

What a striking cover, really bold and I love it.

The Dredd was a fun one off by McConville, with some lovely art by Tom Foster. Seemed to go a little overboard on the lighting effects in the aircraft which I found a little distracting from his otherwise sharp style. Minor complaint at the end of the day.

Indigo Prime continues in fine style. It'll be interest to get a sense of the pacing when this latest run is read of one. Here feels like we're been thrown into the dramatic finale of a high octane movie. It works but I'm intrigued how it will read as a whole.

Anderson truddles on and for me isn't getting there.

Absalom is magnificent a really nice pay off to the set up from a couple of weeks ago. Took me a little bit to get into the rhythm of episode, but when I did it just sang. Brilliant.

Finally Thistlebone seems to stab the horror home, but I wonder if its playing with us. The fact that I'm feverishly guessing and counter guessing speaks volumes for the quality of this story.

Nice Prog.

SB this be because of the spider-verse movie (like my nephews)
The current miles Morales : Spider-Man comic book ain't bad & only around 8 issues in I think - so easy to get back issues or first tpb

I've not read much Waid after this run - for no reason other than I'm not reading much superhero stuff at all and he's not done a title I'm interesting in since this - well was tempted by his Black Widow but for whatever reason just haven't got to it. Anyway he's done some superb stuff prior to this - his track record is hard to match - but for all that this is indeed his magnum opus.

So on another point I've decided on my all time top DD runs (by writer largely though a number of artist have played a significent part to each of these runs) list and its:

Nocenti > Waid >>> Bendis > Brubaker > Miller + Janson* >>>> everything else

*[Normalfontsize] I'm excluding 'Born Again' here as its possibly the best DD story ever but at only 7 issues I don't think it counts as a 'run' and brilliant as it is I don't want to add it to this big run as it'd muddy the waters. [/Normalfontsize]

Not read a lot of modern stuff - there seems to be a lot of stuff knocking around - but I'd echo Kraven's Last Hunt as a stonecold classic and to my mind its perfect for an imaginative 14 year old if they want something a bit different.

From my time (80s) the Roger Stern stuff, particularly the Hobgoblin saga is just tops and normally can be found in one trade or another.

The recent(ish) Fever by Brendan McCarthy is brilliant - if atypical.

motherf@@@@rs - it's got to be killing the cinema by a pertentage ?
it's the reason i watch stuff at home instead

I had just such an encounter a couple of days ago in the cinema, when watching a screening of "The Cure - Anniversary 1978-2018 Live in Hyde Park".

Got myself a seat right up at the front, having made sure to get to the cinema in plenty of time. Six women walk in a few minutes before the movie is about to start. They sit right down behind me.

And they promptly begin to talk among themselves.

Not just when the adverts are on, or the trailers are being shown - with which I have no problem - but when the movie itself starts.

And for the first five minutes of the concert.

And for the next five minutes after that - an experience which is briefly interrupted, by the late appearance of three young ladies who proceed to occupy the three seats to my left.

And who also proceed to talk among themselves.

And talk.

And talk.

And for the next five minutes I am all but surrounded by this most unwelcome version of a Greek Chorus. Despite the music soundtrack being pumped out at a high volume, I cannot help but be aware of the yakking and chattering behind and beside me. It's like there's a swarm of bees droning on in the background.

My patience finally gives out, thanks to the intermittent glare from the mobile phone of the young lady beside me. The poor thing obviously missed the Turn-Your-Phone-Off-In-The-Cinema message for like, most of her life?

As luck would have it, I spot a lone empty seat on the other side of the cinema and move to there instead. I can still hear two of the women talking but they are distant enough now as to be barely heard. I did still enjoy the concert itself but my experience of it was definitely marred by what happened.

I wouldn't mind, but I gave up going to outdoor concerts anymore precisely because of this kind of bullshit.

Spoiler blocked in case someone's playing catch-up

Just gonna throw this in there, but I wasn't impressed by Rico in the Dredd story. She was running, but she wasn't a killer and the story could easily have been written so she was taken down with a leg shot. I don't think we've seen anything to suggest that Rico is that brutal. Sure, she has to go down bad to enable the shock ending, but another Judge could have used.


Just a tone thing, I guess.

Robin
