    Clint Langley is marmite to me, sometimes I love him, other time's I want to smash him on the ground. His drawn art for early Slaine and the recent ABC Warriors series was great, I even enjoy his photoshop jobs on The Volgan War. But I find it works far less effectively when humans are the center of it all. The cars and buildings, technology in AR are very appealing, but the photo-realism are just big put off for me. I just couldn't bring myself to look at his run on Slaine using Photo-realism. Besides that I'm finding AR to be a bit...well, sexist. There's alot of over sexualisation of young girls in it, girls my age sure but considering who this is made by anf what a portion of it's audience are I can't help but find it a bit sqeeky. Doesn't help that the characters (male and female) are all so bland I can barely remember any of there names.

    'Ere, Hawk, 'ave you bin readin' American Reaper? D'you think that it's a tad artsy? I mean the stories work well, I won't deny it, and I'm enjoying 'em but I can't get past the feelin' that there's too much in the graphics dept.

    I haven't seen a Devlin Waugh story for so long that I'd almost forgotten about him until an artist interview in the Meggazine reminded me. If I remember rightly they were pretty good stories, great art too but camp as whole Jamboree of scouts.

    No one stays dead in either of the big two universes. There about to kill Wolverine off...even though he can regenerate from a single cell. Yeah, cos' THATS not over powered. TBH, most people think it was a mistake to kill Johnny off, no one wanted to admit it because The Final Solution was just so good! Dredd was killed off and then resurected by Murd...just for lols. And we all know old stoney face only has about another decade in him before Wagner going to have to call it a day. The only example I can think of where the resurection occured seemingly because was Mean Machine. But the Judge Child was esstentialy jesus so...well, after Chaos Day there's such an abundance of orphan I think all four DJ's will have a punt, and even more interestingly, I hear a Wagner scripted Devlin Waugh story is in the works that will deal with The Sisters of Death, no doubt that will tie in in some way.

    In comic land no-one is definitively written off, they've nearly all died and come back, even in 2000AD (Johnny Alpha for one, Dredd another). Even Supes bit the big one and he's indestructible (virtually). In classical mythology there were ways of getting someone out of Hell but, in fairness, they didn't always work (Orpheus and Eurydice).

    Anyway I'll stop preachin' now and say yeah, I'm looking forward to it too and I've always loved Wagner's work so it should be one to watch.

    In the Big Meg orphans are a dozen a credit. Death is such a bleeding hearted liberal...

    Fair point! Have to say though...Death was dragged to hell. I'm prity sure thats as deffinitive a right off as it's possible to get! I'll look forward to it anyway, Wagner's writing it so he's bound to come off REALLY creepy at least. Maybe a bit nasty to boot. I seem to remember the last time we saw him he was killing orphens. Nasty.

    D'yer know, I decided some time ago to stop tryin' to think or even out-think the writers of my favourite media. It takes away "surprise" if you do figure it out and you can always "retro-think" it if you don't like their scenarios or you think that it is "flagged" too early. These days I like to sit back and enjoy the ride.

    Always nice to be amongst the like minded. What did you make of Trifecta? Seem's to have divided the fan base a bit, I enjoyed the build up in all three strips but the finale suffered from Hollywood-itise.
