Why wouldn't you follow Chris Weston on twitter?


1/ D'Israeli
2/ Henry Flint
3/ Colin MacNeil
3/ Chris Weston
4/ Simon Davis
5/ Simon Coleby
6/ INJ Culbard
7/ Richard Elson
8/ Phil Winslade
9/ Mark Harrison/Dave Kendall
10/ Jimmy Broxton/Lee Carter


Based on strip art only - Greg Staples and Alex Ronald would be in there, otherwise. Length of service and frequency of appearance are also taken into consideration, or I'd have been tempted to sneak Leonardo Manco in there, alongside the great Mike Dowling and former regular Ben Willsher, who seems to have dropped off the end of Tharg's Rolodex in recent times.

5 to 10 could be in any order, really. Cheating at the end with the doublers - didn't want to push that too far, or Trevallion, Goddard and Richardson would be in there at 8, 7 and 6, too. Anguished for ages about Culbard - initially had him higher, but he fell down the ranking due to the length of service criterion. Current artists only, which I'm defining as having a strip in Prog or Meg every year for the last three years.

So there we have it. Dredd 'Control' ends and if I'm honest I'm a little disappointed. The ideas were excecuted well. The events that were used to carry them a little hackneyed for me. Shame as this has been a great story and I really liked what it was aiming at. Have to say happy that Maitland's alive.

Indigo Prime however is glorious and is the kind of story that gets away with 'The human Fingerbob' by the force of shear creative brilliance and glorious realisation. Ending exciting too!

Always happy with Sinister Dexter and this is a nice intro. Just also say I didn't like how John Charles coloured the Might Yeowell's last time here I think its a complete trimuph! It really evoked the painted stuff Steve Yeowell did back in the late 80s.

If I'm being picky the Future Shock makes a great Terror Tale as the shock ain't all that  shocky but the terror is certainly in the tale. Shouldn't really get too hung up on that as its a good story. I'm intrigued how folks will react to the art in this one. 2000ad fans can suprise by how conservative (small c) they can be in their art tastes and I see this could be an issue here. Me I loved it thought is was sharp striking. Loved the bold colours.

Jaegir didn't really move us on too much, just kept the same things going effectively enough.

Decent Prog if not quite up the standard of late.

I'm not, quite frankly (see what I did there) I'm a little disappointed!

So has this been Rob Williams removing himself from Dredd, or just finishing a long-running arc?

The Future Shock was certainly shocking!

Otherwise a pretty strong prog.

It's been at least four months since I got my subscription prog on a Saturday. Monday at best, often a Wednesday or Thursday.
Lock up your spoons!
