Let's Dance for Comic Relief 2013
Episode 1 (of 4)
It's the fifth series of this comedy Strictly now -- I don't think they've managed to make one of these celebs-be-silly-for-charity formats last so long before. But hey, it works. I swear the routines are getting longer though... or maybe they just feel it. And who the hell is Olivia Lee?!

2000 AD #1755-1757

Featuring, in order of first appearance...

Judge Dredd Day of Chaos: Elusive, Parts 3-5 by John Wagner & Henry Flint
Ampney Crucis Investigates... The English Assassin, Parts Six - Eight by Ian Edginton & Simon Davis
Bob Byrne's Twisted Tales Tale #13 by Bob Byrne
Angel Zero Parts 5-7 by Kek-W & John Burns
Low Life The Deal, Parts 6-8 by Rob Williams & D'Israeli
Indigo Prime Anthropocalypse, Parts One - Two by John Smith & Edmund Bagwell

A few months ago I said I was trying to get back into my 2000 AD reading. That failed to subsequently materialise. So now I'm really, really trying -- picking up where I left off in November 2011. 15 months ago. No wonder I struggled to remember what was going on in a couple of stories. Still, off to a solid start… though the latest Prog (with subscribers now, in shops on Wednesday) is #1820, so…

Anyway, particular highlights here come in Prog.1755, with an awesome cover -- well, a great pun -- and a top Bob Byrne's Twisted Tale inside. 1756 takes the wind out by reintroducing the woeful Indigo Prime, but at least there's Low Life to sustain a suitable level of awesome.
