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.

It’s got The Courtship Of Jenna Markarov, Love and War (prog 2000), The Rudinstein Regulars, another Love and War (1200 - 1207), Battleship Potemkin, One Last Night in the House Of Sin. Haven’t read it yet though so I could have missed some

Got my Dante v3 yesterday. I get mine from my local comic shop, who orders me a copy alongside my prog. Strangely enough I seem to be ahead of subscribers at present. Is this some glitch?

Shocking, but I’m guessing they’re as rare as Unicorn Poop this year. My own thrill merchant only got 5 copies and if I hadn’t hassled him on Facefook this morning, he’d have forgotten to save me one. Apparently seven others tried to bag ‘emselves one in the same manner, but ‘cos I’m a loyal Squaxx I got special treatment (exactly why I buy from him every week and not subscribe). Here’s hoping everyone manages to get a copy.

The whole thing’s just FUN, innit? Surprisingly quite a lot in it too, for its size. Dredd was my highlight, just a joy.
Gonna leave it out for Tiny Rocka to discover and see if she digs it...

Odd you say that, Jimbo - for me the repro in this volume is the only thing that lets it down, particularly on the McMahon chapters. I wonder if it’s an inconsistency, if you put two copies side by side there’d be differing levels of consistency?

Just to add to the madness, I get mine reserved by my local comic shop every fortnight, and today’s issue (Zombo) hasn’t turned up. He’s been invoiced for it, but it’ll likely come with the next one, he tells me. What IS going on?

Not feeling it, myself. The whole thing just looks pointless. Still, nobody’s forcing (!) me to see it, so I doubt I’ll bother.

Like everyone else, I’m loving the prog again after a bit of a lengthy blip. Everything in it this week is a must read, even SinDex, which I’ve hated until recently.

Only gripe is that the art on Anderson makes it difficult to tell what’s going on for the second week on the run. But it’s David Roach though and he’s one of my absolute favourites, so it’s easily forgivable. It looks wonderful, but I find it hard to see what’s happening in some of the action sequences. It is just ‘cos I’ve forgotten where we’re up to in previous stories?

All is great now though. Cheers THARG!
