Here, here.

Smaller gigs offering free entry are a great way of increasing the readership.

Need to sort my gigs for next year...

Goaty- each of us does what we like for the advent- but I am working on a Zarjaz daily for christmas similarly to the ones in previous years but I'm a bit late getting going so don't want to commit to a day on the advent till I know the strip will be ready...

Judge Dredd- Frostee the Snow-bot from last year...

I've just started drawing the Zarjaz strip, but doubt it will be finished soon enough to slot into an open day otherwise I'd bagsy one...

I'd throw Ewing & Holdens 'Dead Signal' in there as well.

A man in a hot air balloon realised he was lost.

He reduced altitude to try to figure out where he was when he spotted a woman below. He descended further and shouted, "Excuse me, can you help me? I appear to be a little off course. I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

The woman below replied, "You're in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You're between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude."

Amazed by what she said, the balloonist stated "You must be in Information Technology!"

"I am," replied the woman, "How did you know?"

"Well," answered the balloonist, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I've no idea what to make of your information and the fact is that I am still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help at all. If anything, you've delayed my trip."

The woman below smiled and responded, "You must be in Management."

"I am," replied the balloonist, "but how did you know?"

"Well," said the woman, "you don't know where you are or where you're going. You have risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise, which you've no idea how to keep, and you expect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it's my fault."

I've said a few times to my kids that if someone had told me at age 7-9 (when I really began reading comics) that I'd be able to see a fully realised Hulk, Iron Man, Cap and any of the others I'd have scoffed.

I always try to watch these films with that sense of wonder in mind as the grown-up I've become is far too cynical.

I'm just working my way through this years annual and really enjoyed Sharky's Jikan story. Loads more to read as well!

From memory there were 2 floppies worth of material- so approx 110 pages. I'd have to dig 'em out to check what issues of the Meg they were with, though.

Jade- The VC's was finished off in the floppies earlier this year. I don't think they are to be included in the collection.

I got a very rare trip to the LCS yesterday so I collected a couple of floppies for series I've not read to jsut 'dip my toes' into strange waters.

I got: Scooby Apocalypse 19 by Giffen, DeMatteis and Eaglesham.

I picked this up purely because the art reminded me of Mike Allred. The plot was nothing tremendously original, in fact I twigged pretty early on what was going to happen, but it is done very well. You'd expect nothing less from the writers involved.

Also: No 1 with a bullet issue 1 by Semahn & Corona.

This was just because of the cover. The design work stood out so I thought I'd take a go on a single issue- and I'm glad I did. As the opening chapter of a new book I figured it might be too much to hope for that this would be a complete tale, and it isn't, but it almost was. The art is clear- though the colours could be toned down some for my tastes and the storytelling works. The plot was- to me- pretty much spot on and it's left me thinking... I may well be picking up later issues of this for a while.

Agreed- I've been watching this emerge over on Th'Insta, so to see it here in much more detail was welcome. A really nice composition, too.

That's a stunner. love Leigh's work- he's got a wonderful sense of immediacy and movement.
