Excellent proggage these last few weeks, I’m enjoying everything in it. Cheers, Mighty One!

You’re SO right, Jimbo. If there’s never any more Strontium Dog, then it’s ended perfectly. Huge condolences, my friend.

So hard to put to put into words the sheer love and admiration I have for this man and his work... I would not be the man I am today without it.
Know though, that no matter how bad you’re feeling about this, there are loads of us out there feeling the same. Sending out some love to you all, we’re all in this together.
And my, what a lot of pleasure he brought us.
Goodbye Carlos. We love you.

“Fitness Test” (prog 1484), where he goes to retire an old judge , another of Morph’s rookies, then takes some personal time and sits in his old watching bay. Still gets me every time I read it.
So much going on there, under that helmet.

To be fair, it was gone 2am when I watched Avengers, and I’ve not really been following all the Marvel movies, so I probably missed a few bits and bobs here and there.

Anyway Ghost Stories
Nice little British horror with more jumps than the Grand National. Wasn’t keen on the ending, but hey, it was a little different. And once again, Paul Whitehouse proves himself to be one of our best actors, and should be immediately promoted to the status of National Treasure.

Avengers Infinity War
Loads of interchangeable superheroes fight each other with their CGI superpowers over and over and you generally won’t know or give a toss who’s who or why you should care but then something happens in space and the bad guy’s clearly the most interesting character but then everyone has to go to Africa and fight some more FOR NO REASON and the bad guy does stuff and the green girl’s completely gorgeous and it all ends in a puff of anti- logic and you’ll wonder why you bothered.

Better than Justice League though.

BEST PROG IN AGES for me... been getting downhearted with it again in the last few weeks, but a great Dredd, hilarious Terror Tale, and suddenly The Order and Deadworld are forgiven any sins. Only Gray Area, usually one of my faves, is the weak link, thanks to a hefty overdose of exposition and some (for me) kinda shoddy art. Still, I really enjoyed this week, extra oil for all droids concerned.

Coupled with this fortnights Ultimate Collection (ABC’s volume 2), which I really didn’t think I’d enjoy but absolutely LOVED, I’m one happy Squaxx tonight. Cheers, Mighty One!

Would this not be the CGI/quasi animated style of Warcraft?

I asked Mr Edginton this very question at a signing last year, and he told me there’s gonna be one more book when he gets chance to get on with it. They need one more to have enough for the collected edition, it seems! Lovely fella.

No one cares about your creative hub so get yer fuckin’ hedge cut - Half Man Half Biscuit - brilliant, wry, hilarious, and on at least one song, heartbreakingly lovely. Got it on vinyl from my boss for my birthday, which just shows I’m working for the right guy.

Changing colours - The Sheepdogs - like every single classic rock band you’ve ever heard blended into one. Tons of Allman Brothers/Hendrix/Santana/Byrds type sounds. This really is bloody GREAT. Had to settle for the cd version, as HMV were after £25 for the vinyl!

Is that Tharg’s sister Mary posing naked on the wall in Durham Red? Oh, how the Mighty (One’s) have fallen...

Fine prog this, but by gum, Survival Geeks is tedious already.
