they attempted those genocides and did those murders.

Steady on Prof, there might be a few Trekkies left.

Doomsday Clock - nowhere near as good as Watchmen, but good enough to ensure a 12 issue commitment.

it seems to have had a troubled development - an original pilot for Fox was made in 2011, then it was going to be a trilogy of movies, and finally after a flirtation with Hulu, it's now going to be with Netflix.

Development Hell as we called it in the pre-internet / SFX Magazine days.
I really hope that they do it justice, it's such a good premise.

Anyone know if the unaired pilot from 2011 ever made it out to the inter-webs?
Looked for it a few times before.

Really GmG's when a gaggle of teenage scrotes sit in front of you seconds before a film is about to start (in a half empty cinema).

+ 20% annoyance if one of them has knockout strength BO.

Nice to see a new Hope... story trailed in the Thrillmail. I thoroughly enjoyed the first one and I was starting to think it had been knocked on the head.

Chuffed about that.
One of the best debuts in the last few years in my opinion.

Isn’t it just the subs that get these bags, the shop bought ones are still clear, non?

More accurately, in Killing Joke it was the Joker's proposition that anyone exposed to a series of devastating personal experiences would go mad, that the entire world is just "one bad day" away from being the Joker. Crucially, what Killing Joke has and this movie appears not to have is the counterpoint of Jim Gordon, who disproves the Joker's contention by not going mad.

The Joker's insane - doesn't that invalidate his argument or the necessity for a counterpoint?

Some good news there...Abnett is the Adamantium laced to the Prog's skeleton.

Still watching and still enjoying it.

In my view this was the strongest season in at least the last 5 years.
A lot to enjoy; Ricks memorable exit, the time-jump, secondary characters getting a chance to shine and, unbelievably, The Whisperers working on-screen (didn't think it would be possible).

A brilliant finale too.
I've always found that there's something very enjoyable about horror set in winter conditions, and this episode didn't disappoint.
Great spotlight on Daryl, superb 'Draugr' zombies and a bit of a redemption for Negan too.

Roll on the autumn for season 10.

No comments on this yet?

I think the new trailer looks amazing - something different (for this particular genre).
Joaquin Phoenix was a superb choice for this role.

Could be this years 'Logan'.

Unfortunately not Matt. It was definitely aimed at adults also.

After some further research I must now refute that it was a 'Tales from the Crypt' episode- my recollection of the Crypt Keeper's mocking summary at the end of the episode now 100% confirmed to be age related delirium.

Good news for fans of good comics- living legend Walt Simonson will be bringing back modern classic Ragnarok for a further 6 issue series this summer:

Probably would have picked this up if Furman or Abnett were writing it.

Looking likely that we won't see Kei Zama back in the Prog for a while.
Shame, great artist.
