Prog 693

The meathead quota in Harlem Heroes has dipped slightly with the arrival of Kathleen, an innocent young woman who has a message for the gang from her dead father. Unfortunately, although she’s managed to hook up with the gang of idiots, they’re still too busy running around and blowin’ fings up to pay any attention to her. If they just stopped for a moment and took stock of the situation they could listen to the message and hopefully put an end to this whole sorry mess.

The art has a slightly more energetic feel to it this prog. This is because Simon Jacob has taken over the inking of Steve Dillon’s pencils from Kevin Walker. This is how much I dislike this strip; I’m looking for anything to distract me from what is supposed to be passing for characterisation, dialogue and story. There have been seventeen sorry episodes so far. How many do there have to be before Tharg decides, “This Michael Fleisher… He’s not very good, is he?”

    I hate to say it, Paul, but worse is around the corner. Let's just say it's a good thing you like John Ridgway's artwork.

    Oh, and I was very sad when Medivac 318 just stopped, as the Arcturus story seemed to be building to something rather exciting.

  • The last of Robinson's strips are currently running. I feel bad for being too critical earlier in The Slog.
