There is some fantastic linework in those pages. Looks very spontaneous like Bernie Fuchs renderings. Thanks, Frank for sharing this gobsmacking Batman tale.

Is it better to reign in hell than serve in heaven? That is the dilemma for Bojo and his cohorts of fuckwits. If the Union has to be sacrificed to get Brexit, then that's the price to pay. He's only interested in what the Square Milers want, and they'll be happy to be shot of any regulation particularly since the EU might start to enforce anti-corruption laws. The Freemarketeers care nothing for any history only for-profit, and they've got the Tories over a Barrel since their haemorrhaging money and supporters. Violence in Northern Ireland along the Border or in some English Towns has zippo meaning to them when there's the juicy prize of even more deregulation and weaker Governments. Divide and conquer. The economy will take a big hit after Brexit, but that's irrelevant when you've got a Yacht and a Mansion in the South of France.

Here's the blurbs. Otomo Katsuhiro, the creator of Akira, is set to make a new film animation called Orbital Era. He will produce as a new version of the Manga classic Akira along with a complete Otomo book. Pure, Geekery overload!

The actor William Simons, PC Alf Ventress in  Heartbeat aged 79

I always remember him from that episode of Bergerac 'A Man Of Sorrows' where he played the seemingly corrupt Chief Chater. He was memorable as the working class Chater who resented Jack Galloways more Middle-class Hallowes. Indeed, he'd sent him out as a lure to trap Big Criminals, like George Bakers thuggish Drug and Gangland Chief Higgins. Competent Actor who worked solidly far as I can tell for over six decades.

Books & Comics / Re: Vertigo no more

This selling idea promotes Brand recognition. You buy DC Comics when your younger and so through association, their hoping comic readers stick with the DC name and buy their more mature products when they're older. I have no doubt this was done to satisfy investors as shareholders are always demanding 'innovative' ways to boost sales. Bringing your portfolio of Characters into a similar Range, each aimed at different Age groups sounds quite smart to me. Your target base 'grows' up alongside your product. For each stage, childhood, teenager and Adult you've, hopefully, got the Product to match. Poor Vertigo but I believe a lot of its titles should reappear, perhaps with some inevitable changes inside this DC Black Label. JBC is right; it does sound like a beer!  :D

That art looks creepy, James Newell- and I like it! It seems like some Mega- Corporation decided Space exploration by the 'undead' would 'save a significant Financial accrument in this Fiscal period.' Hell, yeah count me in for a little dough Paul you've got the time to do this. Shit, any Art I'm happy to try and bang out if your schedule becomes crowded. This project sounds like a great idea.

The 'Ugliest' Beauty Contest in Britains history continues. You desperately try to find some sensible policymaker, but there are no ones currently present. It looks like the last of the Great Apes is going to walk into Downing Street, and then steamrolls us out of Europe. BoJo's a Right Wing Loony despite the slightly bumbling, toffish manners. The Square Mile will be the only ones sleeping happily over his appointment. If you're a Car manufacturer or worker kiss your job goodbye and say hello to more money for the Rich under the guise of 'Deregulation.'

Damn, his Kerr Avon has to be one of the finest depictions of an Anti-heroes on TV. He was in Doctor Who as well plus lots of other programmes. He had to have both legs amputated after an illness yet still managed to appear on the Gameshow Pointless. A Rebel to the end.

“I’m not intending to do many more” 😢

Such news is, of course, disappointing but we've still got a few more episodes to look forward to and a treasure trove of Wagner's work to go Thrill Factor Overload over. John Wagner's done his service above and beyond the call of duty in my estimation.
