The Deuce season 2.

By far the best TV show of 2018, script and performances are so good I'd rate it in the same league as The Wire and The Sopranos.

I've read there'll be another time jump in season 3 to the early 80's, should be a treat.

Looks great, and I'm kinda remorseful I waited for the collected edition this time.

I'm finding this very sub-par.


I picked up the first two issues on the back of a points redemption scheme my LCS (the ever wonderful Big Bang Comics) was previously running.
The points system seem to have been scrapped. I won't be bothering with the remaining two issues.

Got this as a stocking filler and poured over it on Christmas night with some tasty whiskey, just as Biz would have wanted.

Not on trend to be a fan of this type of artwork these days, but I still love his stuff. Always will.
Some 2000AD related content too- Dredd / Anderson and Slaine pieces I haven't seen before.

Worth a pick-up if it's your cuppa.

Well, I found it an interesting diversion, at least.

The Soap-box never fails to entertain with those atypical quotes and links.

I had the misfortune to read the first issue of Azzarello’s Rorschach book and it was fucking awful.

Truly the worst of the Before Watchmen series, I rode that bad trip all the way to issue 4.

Due to the same bloody creative team* I missed the boat on Bat-Dick, and would otherwise now be swimming in a pool full of Ebay scalped greenbacks.

*Kidding of course, both talented creators, just didn't work out on Rorschach.

Very good film. Slow burn in the first hour, but necessary and then loses it's shit (in a good way) in the second hour.

As a seasoned horror fan, for at least forty years, there were four sequences that sent genuine chills up my spine. Compare this to The Sixth Sense where this happened twice.

Has a good 'Rosemary's Baby' vibe to it.

Recommended if you like creepy horror.


I mostly agree, although it seemed a bit muddled at times, but maybe some processing will iron that out. A brilliant performance from Toni Collette plus an unsettling atmosphere from the start make this an overall hit.

Watched this recently too; some of it is horrifying in a way that has seeped into my brain and made me uneasy for days.

These bits were the family's reaction to the awful decapitation though, and the fact that the poor mam had to find Charlie's body in the car.

Things get a little bit silly when people start flying and chalks write on boards though, and I can't help thinking it would have been better without the supernatural elements at all (in a Kill List kind of way, perhaps).

In a light year for horror, Hereditary has to top most lists.
I agree that it could have been improved- maybe with a little bit of restraint, but I quite enjoyed it.
The re-watch too, only then catching the occult sigil on the specific telephone pole that decapitates little demon Charlie.

My votes:

1st Place; Prog 2078 by Ezquerra. An iconic shot of Johnny dishing out some death. Great colouring and detail by the much missed King.
2nd Place; Prog 2087 by McCarthy. Dunno why I like this so much. The bizarreness of it? The unusual colouring? I just dig it man.
3rd Place; Prog 2098 by Millgate. Great 90's-tastic painted Dredd. Get this Droid back in the Prog.

Orville s2 also starts on the 28th.

Surprised they could raise the budget for a second season- McFarlane's hair and teeth alone cost the same as 26 episodes of Voyager.

*Glad to hear that its back, I quite enjoyed the first season.

Bought this from Voldemort on ebay for £200. The Alabammy Blimps.

Worth it for the skulls in the first panel alone.
Lovely vintage Dillon.

If you like a ghost story this time of year, there's a one-off half hour spooky tale called The Dead Room on Christmas Eve, BBC 4, written by Mark Gatiss and starring Simon Callow.


That is very welcome news indeed.
I thought 2013's The Tractate Middoth was the last time we'd ever get A ghost Story for Christmas.

Most unsettling dream/nightmare for me - one of those that seems to keep going all night, waking me up every hour or two. Yeesh.

You're still dreaming Sharky.
