Oh I don't know they've done an absolutely cracking job with all the Battle stuff and it looks like this will be a similar format and one hopes similar quality.

Really looking forward to this!

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur 17 see this arc fall back to the slump. Come on MG+DD you were so good for so long and I was so chuffed you somehow stayed around.

I'm amazed this has made it to 17 issues. I don't mean that as a judgement on the quality of the comic, because I don't read it, but when comparable Marvel fringe titles like Foolkiller have conked out at 5, and when Marvel in general is doing surprisingly poorly in the direct market, it's quite an achievement for this to still be going.

Yeah each time a new arc is announced I'm amazed and delighted. It seems to sell bobbins in the direct market and yet got a second, then third and it would now seem we are going for a fourth arc (hopefully better than the 3rd!). There must be some other market its doing well in cos even as a product to diversify the range the numbers as we seem them can't justify its continued existence... not that I'm complaining mind!

Well we have been neglecting this thread haven't we. Bad we, bad we.

I will redemn us all with my comics and their reading. Having done the reading I will now do the whittering. You should all come here and do this also. Otherwise we will always be bad we. We are not bad we are we...*

Island 15 marks the last issue of this series, such a shame.We've had our ups and downs (or rather downs and ups, took me a while to get into this) but by George that was one worthwhile experiment. Well done all involved for trying.

Speaking of ups and downs I somehow ending up buying Cerebus in Hell 1 and 2 after deciding I shouldn't. Not as good as issue 0 but has it moments and I don't think I was offended by anything ... I was trying not to look too hard!

Kong of Skull Island 9 has finally made me realise why this series doesn't always work as well as it should, its the colouring. Its all so orange and can make the storytelling stumble. The reason I sussed this was cos on all other levels this was a great episode and so I really tried to work out what was buggin' me ... and it was that.

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur 17 see this arc fall back to the slump. Come on MG+DD you were so good for so long and I was so chuffed you somehow stayed around. Don't blow it now.

From now on all gold. Black Road 8 is just a wonderfully characterful fight. Brilliant. The Spirit Corpse-Makers 2 is Francavilla doing The Spirit, 'nuff said. Black Hammer 7 and Kill or be Killed 7 both continue being wonderful.

So we get to book of the haul. its not going to be Helena Crash 1 alas. It could have been its just soooo cool, so very very cool. I got this on the strenght of the brilliant Warwick Johnson Cadwell's just glorious art (come on Tharg get this fella in the Prog will ya). I stayed for the cool... I'm old and grumpy I don't do cool any more... some how this made me do cool. Well done you.

Book of the haul though has to be Copperhead 11. I might have read better comics this month, I've not read comics I'm more happy about picking up. Don't get me wrong it is quite supreme, it really is. A fantastic opening to the new arc. A wonderful, apparent shift with on of our main characters and just great to look at. So happy this comic is back. Its so good. Serioiusly all fans of 2000ad should be reading this comic, seriously.

*No whatever you may think that's not all typo that was all meant

Oh my toooo good this month. I suspect if you asked me again tomorrow I'd have a different answer, even a completely different top 3! Well done everyone just a superb month. BUT favourites we must and so.

1st Darren Stephens - Deadlock - that eye, that evil eye
2nd Anthony Coppin - Torquemada - not quite sure how this didn't win. Quite brilliant
3rd Goaty - Jenny - all neon and fear. Brilliant

HM - Uwe De Witt - Tarot Cos some how I couldn't find a place for it which is quite staggering given how fantastic it is.

Good to see Dredd is boning up on benefit law as well.

Real case of deminishing returns on this one. Loved the first series and it got worse as it went on alas. The art however remained consistently superb.

I think overall though I'm a fan.

Prog / Prog 2024 - Meet Harvey
« on: 25 March, 2017, 01:58:01 pm »
That's the Prog you've been looking for.

As I suspected last week the Prog reachs almost as high as the last run. The new Dredd story Harvey has a solid and enjoyable opener. Dredd plays his cynical role and Hershay asks him to give things a try. Intrigued to see where this goes.

Brink has a blinding episode, the exchange between 'Fil' and Kurtis just sings. Its like the previous series already. Just devine comics.

A great little Future Shock, always great to see Nick Dyer in the Prog.

Scarlet Traces has a cracking and thrilling episode with more great character exchanges .

Deadworld also continues to defy my expectation by being fantastic.

This is all just great stuff. Thanks Tharg.

For the more sapient members of the forum it goes a little something like this;

- Randomly open 'The Political Thread'.
- Shake head.
- Chuckle.
- Close 'The Political Thread'.
- Continue to never post in 'The Political Thread'.

I learnt a new word today. Sapient - well done that man.

It was a very sapient comment you made very sapiently (can you made a sapient into a sapiently?)

Mega-City Comics in Camden has some David wozzname covers just in, for anybody lacking them.

Yeah there are a load of these in my local comic shop (Sheffield Space Centre) and if anyone wants one I'll try to make a trip there to pick one up.

I suppose, the lesson from t'other thread about bad stories is that it's all subjective really.

Yeah excellent point that I made myself serveral times. There is some pretty great art throughtout... well there should be I'm a big fan of Eric Bradbury but just don't think his art works here for reason's that completely escape me.

Andy Lambert I promise I'm not just saying this to return the complement but when I was looking through Barney for exemplary modern cover that cover from 1819 by James Harren almost got my vote as did the cover of 1852 Ian Culbard first person beastie jumping at you. Both are so striking and superbly designed.

I've avoided this as it too hard but there always two covers I return to when I think of this question



and



But realise its easy to get sucked into plugging for the older more recognised images so thought about more modern ones that are as powerful and this one meets that grade in such a different, more modern way



As ever I reserve the right to change my mind at the drop of a hat!

Sounds interesting. Which Extreme Edition did it appear in?

It appeared in Extremes 26, 27 and 28

http://www.2000ad.org/?zone=covers&page=reprints&choice=EXTREME In Barney we trust.

Have to say I read this recently and while it starts off fine it doesn't hold up for too long.

I always enjoy hearing about fans relationship with the comic we love so really enjoyed that. Its really interesting to hear a story based on following a character other than Dredd, I'm a big fan of Dante too!

Thanks for sharing.
