I'm accidentally going to see Gwar.

Guacamelee 2. Being able to turn into a chicken that looks like it's having a panic attack when it runs around means this is officially the greatest game of all time in this or any other universe.

Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Knightfall is a really enjoyable read. It's based on the idea of what if Batman failed to take back the "Bat mantle" from Azrael.

Thank you. I got very lucky with the art team. I'd given anything for some Carnimal funkos (especially the monkey clown). :)

Chief Judge Joker - a commissioned piece.

Dear Santa,

I don't ask you for much and I've been a very good boy this year so if you could make this cross-over happen...

Creative Common / Supermom: Expecting Trouble (my new comic)

Superhero Voltra is on a mission to stop her archnemesis from taking over the planet. There's just one problem: she's pregnant... and he's the father. Cue the world's strongest mother fighting the world's evilest father over the fate of mankind and their unborn child. And in a world where superpowers are passed on through genetics the questions of "Who will the baby take after, the mother or the father?" takes on a whole new level of importance. Unfortunately for Voltra it looks like the baby might be taking after daddy...

Published by Action Lab, Supermom: Expecting Trouble is an action comedy mini-series written by me and brought to life on the page by an amazing art and lettering team (seriously, check out the preview). It hits the shelves in December but if you like the look of it please consider pre-ordering it the next time you're in your local comic shop. Only way to guarantee a copy. And if you'd also convince the store owner to order an additional 50 copies that would be great, thanks. :)

A PDF featuring a 14 page preview, full info, the true story behind the comic and more can be downloaded at: http://www.mediafire.com/file/57986rnlgk0itfz/Supermom_Preview_Pack.pdf/file

John Carpenter's Joker: Year of the Villain is... interesting.




Adding an S&M kink to the Joker/Batman relationship just doesn't work for me. The idea that the Joker does what he does because it gets him off comes across as puerile rather than taking it to a dark new place.

Just finished Normal by Warren Ellis. It's a glorified short story - maybe 100 pages - with a locked room conundrum: what happened to the guy, locked in his room with no way in or out, and why has he been replaced by a swarm of insects?

Is it worth picking up?

Control. Overall I really enjoyed it but a lot of that is due to the story, atmosphere, style, world building etc. The gameplay mechanics on their own are a bit wonky at times but its worth it to immerse yourself in the game's world. You go from being a wee bit annoyed at the cover system to stopping to turn on a TV and being Creeped The F*** Out as two child puppets weep about their dead parents and then turn to look at you.

God Hates Astronauts. A funny, anarchic and messy (in a good way) mash up of superheroes, sci fi and whatever weird shit enters its creator Ryan Browne's head.

It kind of reminds me of Unbreakable in that come the end it feels like you've only really seen the first act of a much bigger and more interesting story.

Observation can go f*** itself.

That is all.

I thought this many times during Observation but overall liked it a lot! It's just way too obtuse and disorientating for its own good at times, but there are things it does well that swung the needle into the positive for me personally. Not sure I'd play it again though, the thought of getting lost and confused again doesn't appeal much.

I really, really wanted to like it. I love the concept and all of the story-related stuff but the game itself just seems to be going out of its way to make everything as frustrating as possible. Being put in the positiion over and over of very slowly scanning (sometimes very large) areas until you find the bit you can interact with, no exterior maps, no way of highlighting what you can use, sometimes very vague instructions etc etc etc.

After 20 minutes of very slowly scanning the station's exterior bit by bit in search of damage I gave up.

The new Slipknot album is fantastic. The previous one left me cold but this one's brought me right back into the fold.

So one issue per customer and a bumper one... take it these will be our golden tickets.

After buying it all this time I was a bit pissed off that without warning it endsand is sold out and I had to get it from a scalper and then wait a week while everyone gleefully posts spoilers. Thanks a fucking bunch Kirkman.

I quite enjoyed the comic but still a shite way to handle a final issue.

Yeah, I agree that this sudden end feels like an unnecessary rug pull. "This comic that you've been reading and invested in for over a decade? It's over. Gotcha!"
