In the future, we'll probably look back at talcum powder in the same way we now look at mercury enemas and trepanning

Ah, the days when we used to drill holes in our heads just to let off some steam.

A single word on the final line of a block of text would get you carpeted in a newsroom, Jim. Just saying.  ;)

Where's the confessions thread these days? Because I've just remembered that I was in my late 30s before I realised that an 'outgoing president' wasn't a description of his personality.

You'll be able to wolf down all the carcinogens you like once those barmy Brussels bureaucrats back off from barraging Brits with bonkers bans.

Cheers, HM.  I was wondering if Suspiria was worth a watch - I'll give it a go.  I watched the original years ago; while I can't quite remember what it was about I remember enjoying it.

Sometimes I think Slaine should have retired years ago, but then I look at the great art it produces and it's enough to keep me interested.

Don't worry, it bears repeating. Slaine has bored me for a long time but by goodness it's given us some jaw dropping art from the Langley and Davies droids - for the first time in ages we get a fun story to go with the beautiful art - and Weston delivers that in spades.

Nice story for Dredd, but I'm also not a huge fan of Boo Cooke's style, though I like this much more than Blunt which I find almost indecipherable

I suppose the Cabalistics episode gives us some sort of closure but it doesn't really add anything much - I thought we were getting a final series rather than a final episode, so bit disappointed.

I like the way that Fiends is showing our Romanian protagonists through different European wars, and the clever addition of Black Max justified the extended page count (just)

Good God, is Skip Trace back already? I've tried to be kind, but this could have been written by the Thrillomatic Random Plot Generator 3000 - multiple scifi tropes combined together in a way we've never seen before. Feels like a writer sitting down and thinking "I have to write a scifi story" rather than a writer who had a story they wanted to tell.

Not read Durham Red yet, I'm trying to eke it out a bit!

and I agree that a double size Droid Life is a wonderful thing - I love this strip.

A Quiet Place was one of them, the other was the utterly bizarre Suspiria remake.

Someone finally figured out the secret ingredient in Johnson & Johnson Baby Powder.  Which you should probably stop using.

Wow. Though am I right in saying that the laws against asbestos use are way more relaxed Stateside?  Not that that's any excuse, of course.

I greatly enjoyed Hereditary, one of the three great horror movies of the year in my books.


Can you tell me the other two?  I'm looking for decent horror films to watch on these cold winter nights.  I watched A Quiet Place recently too; with Jimfromtheoffice.  I liked it but didn't think it quite lived up to the reviews.  Though, as I said, Hereditary lost me a bit when the supernatural elements took over, I found it way scarier - I think the mother's reaction to the awful way her son handled her daughter's death will probably stay with me forever.
