    2000 AD

    The Judge Dredd Megazine is serialising a French WWII graphic novel, "under the new ‘Battle presents…’ banner, reviving the name of one of the greatest comic books in UK publishing history." https://2000ad.com/post/4814

    Desperately sorry, Ade, but I just tracked down the first 2 issues, and I thought it was shite. I'm not even gonna bother with the third. It read like Alan phoned it in from a list of zombie movie clichés, and Simon Bisley's art did nothing to help. Considering the anticipation I felt for more comicbook writing from Alan, this was quite a disappointment. Garth Ennis' Crossed, which covers very old ground, does a better job. You're on the money about the covers, though.

    Best comics of 2018

    What were the best comics published in 2018? If it appeared in 2018 or it was cover-dated 2018, that's close enough. And "best" can mean "best of the small cross section I read" or "my favourite". Here's my list of approximately 5: Exit Stage Left - The Snagglepuss Chronicles (surprise!) 2000AD Kill Or Be Killed Alfie What's your list?

    Best comics of 2018

    The Lone Ranger would have made my list, but I thought it was a bit hasty since only three issues have been released, and I've only read two of those. Similarly, Bendis' Superman and Action Comics are just lovely, but I always feel slightly embarrassed nominating superhero funnybooks when there's so much amazing literature out there. (No criticism of you folks intended. Thank you to everyone who responds to these threads.)

    Anyone who fancies some fresh Leonardo Manco art should keep an eye on 2000AD in 2019:

    18 pages sounds like a lot of work for you. If you've already scanned it, email would be fine by me, or a Dropbox or Google Drive link; otherwise I'd prefer not to put you to the trouble.

    I've got the floppies, so I'd love a look at Grant's backmatter. Only if it's no trouble for you to scan & post.

    I hope so, although I'm almost tempted to buy extra copies of this edition in anticipation of the price going up by the same amount.

    No. They're impossible to find at a sensible price (AFAIK). I do have most of the Eagle run from the 1980s.

    I lost touch with the weekly comic threads for a while there. Broad, unsubtle allegory or parody is entirely in keeping with Judge Dredd, so well done to the Jenkins boy on that score.

    ^ https://www.selfmadehero.com/books/lip-hook English rural horror? Sold! Thanks for the heads-up, Ade. I do hope he can maintain the staggering quality he's produced so far. He seems like a no-brainer to take over Batman, but IMHO he's so good he deserves something bigger.

    ^ It's written by Paul Jenkins, and is apparently his first time writing the character. I'm at least gonna track down preview pages.

    Rest in Peace, Stan Lee

    This must make Howard Chaykin's Hey Kids! Comics! seem like it's in poor taste.

    A Hellblazer miscellany

    We don't seem to have a catch-all thread for stuff about Hellblazer that doesn't belong in its own thread. Maybe there's a reason. Writer Elizabeth Sandifer is doing a series of articles called "The Last War In Albion" which she describes as Here's the entry about John Constantine: "Declare Yourself A Magician".

    Yeah, that was a great comic. Have you read Fatale and The Fade Out?
