Just realised I never bought the 2017 model. Bought 2 each of the 2015 & 2016 ones, so will do so again.

Original Robo-Hunter will be complete - it's the various reboots and sequel that won't be included. Likewise, the original Gerry-Finley Day RT will be complete - it's the increasingly ropey reboots and re-imaginings that may not make an appearance.

Ah! Good stuff. TBH I wasn't really expecting the Millar Robo-Hunter or Friday stuff unless the series ends up being extended, and a lot of the non-original run of both strips is either long out of print or never been reprinted anyway. Similar to the Strontium Dogs stuff which I also don't expect to see the light of day as part of the UC publishing plan. Happy all the Wagner / Grant & Finley-Day stuff will be collected in their entirity, as that's the stuff I want to read or re-read. Hopefully Cinnabar will be included in the Rogue material, as I remember really enjoying that one.

Haven't you heard? We don't have to worry about those because they're going to redefine them so they won't be dangerous, progress-impeding earthquakes any more.

You must not have been paying attention. He was a criminal because he murdered 2,000 people.

If one of the companions had made Rosa miss the bus, then a stupid accident like that would be much less dramatic than having an antagonist who is trying to thwart them while they try to beat him. I'd rather watch the episode they actually made.

Am I reading the ending of Skip Tracer correctly? Did Nolan Blake just get barbecued? If so, it’s odd no-one has commented on it.

UC for all won't be complete, note, for RT/RH.

Really? I'm surprised by that...

Original Robo-Hunter will be complete - it's the various reboots and sequel that won't be included. Likewise, the original Gerry-Finley Day RT will be complete - it's the increasingly ropey reboots and re-imaginings that may not make an appearance.

I was happy that the news was giving Robinson free publicity just to get a break from the near-constant coverage of the five earthquakes that struck Blackpool in one day and which have no possible explanation.  Not even the engineers working on the nearby fracking operation that had recently restarted causing subterranean explosions in an attempt to create earthquakes could explain where all these earthquakes were suddenly coming from.

The Church Of Climate Scientology: How Climate Science Became A Religion.

Hmmm. Do I believe 95%+ of the scientists who have studied this issue, or a five-year-old article by this man:

Alex Epstein is the author of the New York Times best-selling book The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels and an expert on energy and industrial policy. Called “most original thinker of the year” by political commentator John McLaughlin, he champions the use of fossil fuels like coal, oil, and natural gas and has changed the way thousands of people think about energy. He has risen to prominence as the nation’s leading free-market energy debater, promoting a philosophy that is “anti-pollution but pro-development.” He challenges many popularly held ideas about energy, industry, and the environment, including the big picture benefits (and costs) of fossil fuels and nuclear power. He draws on cutting-edge research and original insights to offer an alternate perspective on the energy debate and shares eye-opening thoughts into how fossil fuels and technology will improve the lives of people – safely, cleanly, and effectively – for years to come.

Co-founder of a for-profit think tank peddling this drivel, who cites Ayn Rand as his greatest influence, and has a degree in philosophy.

I've watched Bone Tomahawk over the last few nights. Man I wish I'd had time to watch it in one go as I'd love to have let its different elements and tones wash over me in one go allowing the contrasts to run riot and I assume the brutal ending to hit all the harder.

Its a glorious western, comedy, odd couple (well quartet), horror movie. And somehow it all hangs together. Really enjoyed that... well when I was squirming behind the sofa!
