Ikea's KALLAX units are pretty good - they come in various configurations, I've got two 4x4 units - they're a bit deep for GNs, but they allow you to use the space in front of the books for displaying tat ... or just gathering dust.

Turns out that Ikea don't deliver to my postcode (even though they deliver to us, and they're only about four miles away).  We ended up going to B&Q and discovering their Konnect range, which looks rather similar.  First batch of four cubes constructed as proof of concept.  Turns out Argos also has a rather similar range - no sure how all of the dimensons match up, but I'm hoping that the accessories are compatible (plastic boxes, etc).

Misty Volume Three - apparently has a story about a wolf-girl, according to Newsarama.  Doesn't say what the story is actually called, and doesn't have any details about the other story to be reprinted (I'm assuming that Misty Volume 3 is going to follow the format of the first two, and have two stories).

Oh, also didn't have a publication date on that article.

I expect I'll be picking it up on Tuesday.
Sure I've seen this somewhere on the forum, but just in case - Forbidden Planet (Shaftesbury Avenue) signing next Saturday.

Freaks is 30.

Don't forget Faces (I assume that was also written by Milligan).

The combination of Millar, Ennis and Morrison was the reason why I left AD at that stage.

Kudos for Millar for at least admitting it. Morrson at least did provided us with Zenith (I still believe to this day that it is his best work/creation ever)

Garth Ennis has said similar (in line with common wisdom, he did some good stuff, some intermediate stuff and some mediocre stuff).

Brazil: Decided to revisit Terry Gilliam’s odd ball dystopian epic after my recent viewing of Time Bandits, and it’s still a cracking good time. Easy to imagine it as a favourite to many about here. Don’t cross your Bs and Ts!


Are you going to finish the trilogy?

Possibly the most telling thing about the shift 2000ad is still thrashing through is the 'Droid Profile' for Robo-Cook. Now from my very limited interactions with this droid he seems smashing and lovely and in most of the answers he comes across as a cocky young soul enjoying life, as well he should. However:
Quote
What does Judge Dredd look like under his helmet?

Get a life, you sad fanboy

Now this is a fun throw away answer and means diddly squat... or does it speak to the prevailing attitude in the Prog at the time. Its a bold, young thing, punching it way into a bold exciting new era... its problem is it still felts a little ill at ease and ashamed of what its come from and that is going to be a problem for some time!


Was this around the same time that the comic that had previously published Halo Jones now declared that comics are entertainment, nothing else and don't look for deeper meaning?

Is Dredd in it?

No Dredd, but you do get to see Joyce (Snr) spit out his lunch and scream "There's a fella in me pie!"


I remember a panel with an eye looking out of some type of foodstuff, but think that's Emerald Isle?  In which case it's like every appearance of Joyce is accompanied by bits of dead bodies in food.  Did the line 'Irish pies are smiling' get used anywhere?

‘Astronomy’ might have been a better term here, but that’s not quite right either as that’s more a study of the cosmos rather than the location of planets in relation to each other... although that’s part of it.


Planetology?
