BORAG THUNGG, EARTHLETS!
Another eye-popping prog to supercharge your Thrill-sensors, Terrans, and this week, along with the penultimate part of Control and the latest instalment of Indigo Prime, we have the scrotnig finales to both Anderson, Psi-Division and Thistlebone.
But while we wave farewell to them, we also welcome back future-war thriller Jaegir from creators Gordon Rennie and Simon Coleby for the next arc Valkyrie. If you remember back at the conclusion to Bonegrinder in Prog 2122, to save her fellow Norts Atalia offered up herself in surrender to the Souther forces — and now she’s in the psychopathic hands of the deranged torturer Colonel Raksha.
Can Jaegir’s comrades extract her in time before General Kovert comes to collect? Keep watching the progs, Terrans!
More new Thrills heading your way with the return of hitmen Sinister Dexter, courtesy of Dan Abnett and Steve Yeowell, and we’re just six short weeks away from the next jumping-on entry point, Prog 2150, out on 25 September, featuring a whole raft of new stories.
