Really enoughed the first half but it lost its way a little trying to pack all sorts in when the 'abitrubbishbots' appeared. Still kids loved it and Sheffield own Police Box on Surrey Street got a mention, that got a cheer in our house!

Oh that was great fun. Had such a laugh on the day so nice to see that footage.

Ah it's not that bad,  just not... good.  By coincidence I rewatched it the other week too, and while I liked it quite a bit at the time, I find myself less and less enthused as the years pass. Its heart is in the right place, which is as a late '50s sequel to Raiders, rather than a 4th Indy movie, and it's hard to fault Ford and Allen's chemistry,  but by heck is it let down by hopeless new characters and some dire, incomprehensible sequences.

Yeah the trouble is it tried to be a a 50s sci-fi B-movie AND the 4th Indy Film and as such a 30's adventure serial and thus didn't commit to either and therefore work as either. It needed to be bolder in its intent and ambition to change, or be commited to its origins. Rather it failed in both ways.

Ford and Allen were of course brilliant.

So I've been watching the Indiana Jones films with the kids over the last few weekends when we've had time. The kids have loved them and had a right mard on when we're not had time to watch one... which I've been chuffed with ... except for the fact that .... well... I knew this moment would come.

I've not watch Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull since I first watched it when it came out. I've approached it with hope that maybe I was wrong, maybe I'm not doing it justice and maybe a second viewing, much later, with a fresh pespective on the world and entertainment I'd find I like it... or at least not hate it as much as I did...

...alas not... much as it warms the cockes that the kids love Indie almost as much as they love Star Wars, it breaks my heart that they haven't yet developed to realise that this, like the prequels is pretty much unwatchable tosh.

I mean its worse than I remember it! Why must my children love the bad with the good... when will I be free of Crystal Skulls and Phantom Menaces?

Prog 928

Shite - Armoured Gideon is by far the best thing in this Prog... and I suspect a number to come...

Colin: any reason why you don’t want to buy it now? Do you already have another edition? The HC hasn’t sold out yet: https://shop.2000ad.com/catalogue/graphic-novels/treasury-of-british-comics/RCA-B0041

I have the Hibneria edition and £20 for the extra pages feels extravagent so was going to wait for a cheaper trade... but damn it looks like a nice produce... this, Black Max, Jinty and Bella, El Mestizo round the corner... I'm trying to be more selective!

Well done the Prog. Not because again its five out five, which it is all stories sustain their high standards. Rather its how quickly they have got the obituary and tribute to Carlos in. I'm sure there will be more to come but didn't think they'd be able to something so quickly. Nerve Centre has a nice tribute and there's an effective Obituary and more to come I'm sure. It the letters and art by Damian Edwardson in Input that hit home most.

Its also fitting that the stories are stella as well. Dredd continues to build and drive an intricate plot beautifully. Blink continues to build and drive an intriguing plot brutally.  Fiends of the Eastern Front 1812 quickly builds towards and exciting conflicit chillingly. Skip Tracer twists and turns as it builds and the plot thickens.

KIngdom just kicks ass!

Arh man now I'm wishing I'd ordered this.  Do you know if it collects more than the Hibernia editions?

Where is this interview? What am I missing now?

This one?

Cool thank you. I Really should be paying more attention!

Dudes! Do none of you read the informative articles and interviews Molcher spends his thankless days compiling?!

Quote from: Dan Abnett
Yes, it’s pretty much a trilogy. Book 3 “High Society” debuts soon. But the world is so rich, we’ve found we have strong ideas for at least three more volumes after that. We’ll see how the audience reacts. It all builds into one, big ghastly picture, whichever characters are ultimately around to witness that. We’d love to continue exploring the Brink.

Conclusion? No!!!!!!!!

Goddammit. Please let this be a typo. I've seldom enjoyed any strip as much as I enjoy Brink.

Oh no missed that. Well at least if that's right it will be a nice contained story with a beginning middle and end but damn it feels like it has so much to offer and explore and I could happily read a long with them as long as they wanted.

Also does the fact that Counterfeit Girl has a trade mean we're not getting any more of that as well. Shame as I felt that strip had other places to go and would loved to of had it back.

Comic haul supplemental ...

...look I know we now have a 'Last comic you read' thread but this belongs here... like you and me together forever.

Anyway anyone daft enough to have been reading my refined and insightful nonsense over the last couple of years knows I really like writer Mark Russell. Indeed I would like to stroke him in ways that would make him feel uncomfortable I enjoy his writing so much, you know as a kinda hideous reward.

So that said reading Lone Ranger 1 his lastest comic hasn't changed this at all. Even if the villians are a little bit mustache twirly the whole thing is immense fun while starting to build a message I'll subscribe to. Great stuff.

Yeah I really liked the way it played with the fact it was a Terminator story. Wagner of course knew what he was doing, but the necessary spin on it all and had such fun with his inspiration.

More importantly what the heck is ‘folk horror’?

Have to say there’s a lot to be excited about there.
