[/quote/] trying to find the quality in it all is painful these days, that and characters I have sadly stopped caring about.
Still, you have to fill the prog with something and I doubt the current Tharg gets much of an editorial on the scripts that go on & on & on & on...
I've been feeling that for a while to be honest. 2000ad is a tough read these days. There are some things where I go wtf happened two years ago when we last saw this strip and, most worryingly, do I care? Once more I'm questioning my subscription. Maybe I should just buy the trades? I hate that point of view, I like getting the prog through the letter box every week, but increasingly I find 2000ad is starting not to work as a weekly comic anymore. The things that keep me going are strips by John Wagner and Dan Abnett, which even if it’s a book in an ongoing series that book will have a beginning middle and end and be a satisfying read (rather than just be a middle where not a great deal happened and the amount of story could have been done in 6 parts rather than 12). I may also put Kek-w in there too, I thought fall of Deadworld was great and I like The Order mad and all as it is. So I at least am in for a treat next prog.
I can't even contemplate how hard it is to get that amount of original material out on a weekly basis and not miss a beat. Seriously, hats off. I'm just not enjoying this current trend of writers writing for the trade or playing a long game when they seem to have forgotten about the short game.
My two pence.
