Something broke inside me when I watched Crystal Skull. I lost faith in humanity and the future. We’re all fucked, and that film is the proof.

I feel like l'm missing something here.

In any case, I'm glad to hear that there is more Brink planned.

Brink: Book 3 - Paperback, 112 pages, 14th May 2019

Humanity is on the brink in the thrilling conclusion to the smash-hit epic space-noir from duo Dan Abnett and INJ Culbard.

Inspector Bridget Curtis is drawn deeper into a disturbing plot that runs from the drug-fuelled sects of the Habitats, to the upper echelons of Junot Corp. Strange things are happening, but is the conspiracy real, or is life in space beginning to affect her sanity? The reality of sinister Space Gods aside, the fate of the human race may be at stake!

Conclusion? No!!!!!!!!

Judging by the low volume involved (and knowing that brewery does brew-your-own days), it sounds like this is a bit of fun rather than a commercial venture. I may be wrong, though.

Sam Kieth and Alan Grant did a wonderful and horrifying version of the Penguin in a Secret Origins issue about 30 years ago (and reprinted in the UK Batman monthly, where I saw it at an impressionable age).

More importantly what the heck is ‘folk horror’?

My new local boozer.

The Slaughtered Lamb?

It’s great. There must be a second collection due soon?

Man I miss Invisible Republic that was a great comic. I hope they get around to graphic novels they planned to continue the story with... or was that Sex?... or both...

I hope so too, it was brilliant. It's a rare example of believable politics in a science-fiction comic (or in science-fiction in general) and you get the impression that they've spent an enormous amount of time figuring out exactly how this world works. The incredible artwork helps as well, of course.

I picked up a copy of Tom King's Omega Men reboot in a digital sale a while back and only just got round to reading it. It's a thought-provoking read. The Omega Men are effectively terrorists and there are quite a few uncomfortable moral questions posed. Tom King goes out of his way to give all sides of the conflict believable motivations. Well worth a read, particularly if you have enjoyed King's work in the past.

To keep on the Green Lantern theme, my other weekend read was Hardman and Bechko's Green Lantern: Earth One which effectively brings the low-fi science fiction of their brilliant Invisible Republic to a mainstream superhero comic, and it works surprisingly well. It does suffer from being a bit rushed in comparison to the very slow burning Invisible Republic. It is hard to see how this series would be incorporated into the mainstream DC Universe, but maybe these Earth One books are meant to be stand-alone? I haven't read any of the others.

Sure I read somewhere that the Dan Dare Corporation think their IP is worth more than it is, but you'd think they'd have managed their expectations by now.

Exactly. Ask a 9 year old if they know who Dan Dare is.

Another well written tribute to Carlos focusing on the subversive element to his work:

Very sad news. He was truly one of the greats. Condolences to his family and friends.

Grant and Breyfogle's Batman is still the definitive one for me. The man was a wonderful and very underappreciated artist. He'll be sadly missed.
