   I hope you're going to Magic Labyrinth and not Another World then... (BTW Magic Labyrinth post my standing order to me, which makes it easier for me to get them)

  Ummm... Comics I'm reading...

  The main 3 X-titles (Love New X-Men (Grant Morrison - hoorah!), the other two are OK, but I've stuck with the X-men since the mid 100's, so I'll carry on)

  Astro City - comes out very Sporadically but is one of the best-written superhero comics ever. I also like most stuff Kurt Busiek's written

  The America's Best Comics stuff, apart from Promethea.

  Authority and Planetary - both top.

  I was getting Young Justice, but that's stopped now. I think I need to find some more Peter David titles to get though, as he's a very good writer.

  I cancelled Thunderbolts and X-Force due to Marvel's 'stealth marketing' on them. i.e. keeping the title and numbering, but completely changing the comic - incredibly crap.

  Umm - I was getting Battle of the Planets, which was OK but I slipped up in getting the issues and am now about 5 behind - so I'll wait for a Graphic Novel.

  Ooh, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. 'cos it's great!

'We can remember it for you wholesale' is a very good Short Story, and carries on beyond the end of the Total Recall film...

Does anyone know what the title of 'The Crack in Space' is referring to? The interdimensional portal they discovered, or the orbital brothel?

Well - I'd _like_ to have old progs in a GN format - easier to store on the shelves etc...

But ?25 - that's ?2.50 a prog?? And no colour? (And no space spinner / bionic transfers too I'd wager...)

Harry Adam Knight books rock! I've read Fungus, Carnosaur (A great forerunner to Jurassic Park, but set in Cambridgeshire), and Slimer (which I've never seen since, and would love to read again).

I'm currently reading a pile of Edgar Rice Burroughs (Tarzan, Barsoom etc.), which are very pulpy and thoroughly enjoyable.

Hmmm... Anyone read 'Fallen Dragon' by Peter F. Hamilton - now there's a good use of landmines during a footy match...

Q: If a tree falls in the forest, and it hits a mime - does anyone care?

A) Feek Freek playing with his new digital camera...

Q) If you have 23 odds and ends on a shelf and 22 of them fall off, what do you have left? An odd or an end?

Yes you should buy it, and get Halo, Timesplitters 2 and Knights of the Old Republic while you're at it to.

And a Gamecube for all the other good games ;)

   What utter tosh! Everyone knows that you can't fall into the mirror as the doppelganger of you in the other dimension provides equal pressure (Try pressing your fingertips against a mirror sometime...)

   Of course what you have to watch out for people is those clever mirror-selfs that have abducted this dimension's version of themselves and are now staging a takeover... Beware the left-handed people...
