Slightly disappointed that after a year of build up Chaos Day was over and done with in about three progs.
It looked like they were building up to a storyline that would involve PJ Maybe and the Dark Judges but I guess that's being left on the back burner for now.
Still, in Wagner we trust, I'm sure he knows what he's doing !

Elsewhere, enjoying Durham Red and the new 3riller looks interesting too.

It's nice to see Red back where she belongs rather than off Grud knows where being some sort of Messiah. I guess all that stuff is now out of continuity, just like Strontium Dogs...

The Dredd movie is "Rated R for strong bloody violence, language, drug use and some sexual content." So it's not all bad!

I'm glad it's got language in it. My mime interpretation skills aren't what they should be.

Prog 1800

Somewhat gratuitous T&A shot of Anderson on the cover, particularly as she does not appear inside !

Great back cover art by Chris Weston who also does a great job on Dredd. The Dan-E Cannon swipe was quite fun. Smile

Rest of the prog pretty underwhelming.

Meg 323

I can kind of see the logic of the Ratfink reprint but it just seems far too recent to me. Surely the vast majority of Meg readers are long term so something this recent is only really going to be of use to any newbies who happen to pick it up because of the movie.

Otherwise a decent issue of the Meg including three Dredd strips (albeit one is based on the new film) plus Anderson.

Snapshot is one of their better creator owned strips. Hasn't outstayed its welcome like Numbercruncher did.

Saw the new Dredd movie this week. Very well shot, Urban makes a great Dredd, but I can't help feeling MC1 was better realized in the 1995 version, and it really could have done with a touch of humour...

Shouldn't it have had a reboot by now so all the characters could start over from scratch and pick up the storylines five years into their adventures without any explanation of what happened?

Maybe they could have Geoff Johns write a mega-crossover event to introduce the changes?

They did try to reboot Rogue Trooper and Robo-Hunter, once. Neither worked, and in both cases the original version was later restored.

He looks more like he's had a lobotomy. Which would explain his writing.

Not a hard choice, is it? I'd rather have a double leg amputation then a frontal lobotomy. Forgive the pun, but it's a no-brainer.

Well, if you had the frontal lobotomy, you might not notice the double leg amputation (which is one type of a double I'll pass on).

I didn't really ever get into Hardy . . . I may have read Far from the Madding Crowd, and I think I was suppose to read Return of the Native in high school English, but probably faked that. (I faked most of the stuff I was suppose to read in high school.)

I like Dickens, Anthony Trollope, and Jane Austen, though . . . also read some Thackeray.

I've only read Vanity Fair. Anything else by him you'd recommend? And I'd like to get into Trollope but I have no idea where to start.

With Trollope, the easiest way to start is The Warden, the first of the books in what is referred to as "Chronicles of Barsetshire". It's a bit light and fluffy . . . no murders or anything like that. After that comes the second book, Barchester Towers.

My wife and kids got me "Judge Dredd: The Complete Case Files 01" for Father's Day this year and I've already finished it. It's great stuff. I'll probably just get the rest for myself, because I'm not waiting another year for book 2.

Can't beat the classics-although I personally think Dredd is going through another very good period right now in the current issues.

Yeah, I tried to get some of those, but all my comic book store had were these ones by IDW that didn't seem quite... right, somehow. They don't carry 2000AD except on Free Comic Book Day, so I don't know if the IDW ones are reprints or non-canon oddities like the DC series or WHAT.
