Actually thought Corden was quite restrained playing the insurance investigator.
HBC’s wobbly Irish accent was terrible and pointless, why not just make her a British?

Not a great film though, lacked some zing and the script could have done with some comedic punch-up.

The only option coming up is a page to input debit or credit card details - no Paypal option there, on my profile page, or on the donation page.

PayPal me the money and I’ll pay the donation on my card. Seriously. Msg me here for details. If there’s a Paypal charge between us, I’ll swallow that.

For those who think that getting paid to work for a charity is the worst thing in the world [ .... ] do you think the builders should donate all their time for free?  How about the architects, electricians, plumbers, doctors, nurses, health care assistants, cleaners, etc?

I have to be frank, I do agree with the core point here; those who are 'chugging' are providing a service in very much the same way.  My personal issue is with the companies that a lot of charities seem to subcontract their fund-raising to.  A whole sector has now evolved with the sole purpose of providing 'fund-raising' services that were once provided by volunteers. 

I'm with Tordels in many respects, the evolution of the 'third-sector' is all about the state (and obliquely, those who support certain political parties) evading their obligation to the social contract.  We are now nearly into the third decade of the 21st Century and we seem to be reverting to practices of earlier centuries rather than evolving new and more considerate / social / responsible practices.  There are people in this country earning more than they could hope to spend in multiple lives at one extreme and at the other extreme, people who literally cannot provide a roof for themselves.  Chuggers are a bit like using a sticking plaster on someone with fifth degree burns.

Just made my contribution using PayPal as the payment option when I got to the choose your payment page. It should open up a pop up window for PayPal login.

The Jurassic Games

Looking forward to The Hunger Park where a bunch of teenagers slowly starve to death on a deserted island.
It exists. Punishment Park. It's legitimately great.

Leave the colour out, it works incredibly well as is.  Sometimes B&W can do a far better job than colour does.  What you've posted here is a nice piece.  What will be interesting is to see how your work evolves for narrative artwork.  Looking forward to seeing more after this, mind.

reading through the help option, PayPal is one funding source but it looks like it needs to be set as an option.  I don't remember seeing it this morning so I do wonder if it has been left off (partly because PayPal seems to take a bigger chunk than card payment operators do).

Thought that was another great Meg.

Dredd vs Razorjack continues to be hardcore action of the beautiful calibur. Devlin Waugh has a nicely teasing first part blown apart by the last panel. Chopper continues as you'd expect... or not expect given its McCarthy and man if there is a visually more compelling story out there I look forward to reading it. A solid Tales of the Black Museum also.

But its Returners that continues to be the biggest delight. Man I wasn't particularly expecting this to be as good as it is and another smackin' ending setting its ending up nicely one suspects.

Good text features and Lofty still to go this is a very good comic.
