Finally got round to reading this week's prog.

I think Dredd has been in a bit of a rut lately. Still, it's good to see a bit of continuity from Trifecta.

As for Defoe, I'm having a bit of a hard time following it, as I don't really know the strip.

Same problem with Slaine, though to a lesser extent. Nice to see the Langley droid back on art duties, though.

Age of the Wolf: This is actually pretty good, if only on a conceptual level. Still, it's easier for me to follow than Defoe.

Ten-Seconders: I'm seriously impressed with this series. Didn't they do a trade paperback of the previous arcs?

Ah, OK. I'll see about picking that up.

Along with the second Day of Chaos trade, Tour of Duty and the rest of the ABC Warriors trades.

For something that costs me 1.99 a week, 2000AD can get very expensive.

oh it can be....

I am personally awaiting the hc of trifecta with the lenticular cover of dredd which depending on which angle you look has the other two leads (being vague in case of spoilers) appearing in dredds helmet eye mirror thingy

" I did the right thing, didn't I? It all worked out in the end." "In the end? Nothing ends, Adrian. Nothing ever ends."

Finally got my hands on Prog 1848 today.

I'm not quite sure about this current Dredd storyline. I was kind of liking it up until this prog's reveal, that Lock may in fact be Judge Death. That's how I interpreted it, at least.

yeah that face is too obvious...

Also loved the parody of just how many editions the horned god got in the slaine story

Day of Chaos: Endgame finally arrived at my place.

Also, my idea for a Judge Dredd game.

Sorry for the double post, but this thread's been dead recently.

I quite liked the recent Flesh and Damnation Station stories. Are there any TPBs of those?

No to Damnation Station. There's a Flesh collection called "The Fino-Files" which collects all the 70s stories as well as "Texas"; "Midnight Cowboys" and "Badlands" won't be collected until next year at the earliest.

Dec 9th 2013 at 12:41:08 PM

[up]Noted.

BTW, what's your thoughts on Underbelly? I thought it was pretty good, but I'll have to rewatch Dredd 3D at some point.

I liked it, but the ending felt a bit rushed. It seemed to me like they could have gotten another issue out of it if the pacing had been a bit more like the movie. Still good, though.

Saw the ad for the new Dredd story in Prog 2014.

'Clash on Titan'? Please tell me that was an accident.

Yes, I know the significance of Titan in the Dreddverse.

I dunno if its just me but as a long term fan of strontium dog I am finding johnny alphas current actions borderline offensive to the actual character

So I finally got around to reading this month's Megazine and HOLY CRAP THE LAST PANEL OF ANDERSON!

Feb 27th 2014 at 11:35:46 AM

I fell way behind, and have just used the massive sale the app is running to start making up lost ground. I'll probably start reading again over the weekend.

Maybe you'd be less disappointed if you stopped expecting things to be Carmen Sandiego movies.

[up]Dmitri Romanov (sort of).

Also, Claw Carver. (OK, technically he was rescued before he died, but since that was by time travel, I feel it still counts).

This reminds me; I really need to start catching up with 2000AD again.

Why did this have to happen just as there's a decent PC version of Resident Evil 4?
