Good prog yet again this week.

The one-shot Dredd reminds us of why you do not always a 6 parts  to tell a story. This certainly was not Niemand's best but still a good Dredd story.

Survival Geeks is one of those stories that grows on you overtime. Googe provides his normal great art and some nice interactions between the different nerd-folk.

Skip Tracer took awhile to build up to the main plot-line by providing little snippets of plot-threat every week. As always Marshall's art and Teague's coloring is a great combination.

The highlight of the prog is again Aquila. The story is well written by Rennie with some interesting usage of real history in the mix. 

Hersey does not really move the plot but the art is a joy to watch. I do liked the surprise that Hersey was still alive and we can now have the story out of her point-of-view.

Yes. Phone them and ask, they're very good at sorting out this stuff.
Expect prog 2177 to be late because it's Easter.

I dont know if it is just because I am just so very glad that the prog is being published throughout this whole horrific global situation, but everything seems so much brighter and better at the moment.

That Dredd was one of the best one-offs in ages, Skip Tracer is telling a compelling story (so much so, that I didnt see next week's cover as a "waste of advertising space" as I have done for previous ST covers. It's finally earned its place in the prog), Survival Geeks was okay and Hershey was beautifully drawn, thrilling and has a pleasingly old-school feel (I think it's that vertical logo). But bloody hell, Aquila is great. It looks beautiful, its genuinely interesting and it has made me want to reread all the previous installments in this lockdown. Was it ever part of the Meg floppies? I forget.

Please, Tharg. Keep on with the weekly schedule as long as you can- in print.

Hershey is outstanding this week. One of the best action sequences I've seen in a long time. Just brilliant.
