Meg 375: Crazy Train
« on: 13 August, 2016, 11:41:36 am »
Double wraparound cover for Lawless, which very much needs to be collected—and soon. This was a breathless and exciting double-length penultimate episode, in what for me has become the Meg's standout strip. But fuck me, there was a lot of shitting swearing in the fucking thing. Fuck! (No drokks in the colony planets, apparently.) Looks like Damned is ending next month, too. So 'all change' for 377 (although what's coming looks pretty good).

A stitch together of scans of my copy. Some conscious coupling of train carriages

Except for "Hotshots, Motherdrokkers!" strangely...

Solid Dredd and 18 pages of Lawless are worth six quid of anyone's money so Blunt, Sweary Vampires and SinDex are free!
Not sure if my logic holds up but I guess in a longwinded way I'm saying this month's Meg is even more of a bargain than usual.

I liked how this story addressed the issue of Dredd's age and health, while also being quite gruesome.

Do we catch a brief glimpse of a denuded little Joe in Carousel?
And is the story a Logan's Run reference?

So, now I know what will be me Meg cover of the year.

I do love a good wraparound cover - that is wonderful.

Yup, we finally get to see what's under Dredd's helmet.

Good solid Meg, so we get to see under the helmet at last... :o
Well that's just like your opinion man.

Seems to be the most obvious.

Lawless is just great. And the artwork never ceases to blow me away, I love it.
