I've just started the final book in Alastair Reynolds' Revenger trilogy - really enjoying these so far and the blurb 'Pirates of the Caribbean meets Firefly' is reasonably accurate.  Add a dash of Black Sails (although not for the pace or the tits) and you're getting there.

This one's a really difficult choice but I think I have to go for D'Israeli here.

I sent you a pm, Huey - not chasing the art, just wanted to avoid clogging up the board with my waffle.

I'd definitely spend time getting a feel for what a decent price may be for these - you'll probably find some sharks in the water and receive offers a fair bit below what these pages might otherwise realise.  The first offer(s) you get may well be on the low side, people being people.  Get some ball-park figures from a few different sources if possible and avoid falling for the old 'I'll give you these magic beans' line; these sound like decent pages and if someone is really interested you'll make a fair few quid.

My finger isn't really on the original art world pulse these days but I can at least say 'no, I'd hold out for more than that / that seems like a fair offer' if you want my opinion (not that there's any reason why you should).

2214 and 2215 showed up today - glad I held off hassling subs peeps about it; just a bit of patience required these days.  Hopefully the other issues will dribble in in due course.  I'm just glad I don't have a UK-sourced mail-based lobster subscription.

The only way I can approach this is to ask myself "who would I want to see one more strip from, at the height of their artistic peak?".  For that, I'd go for an early-ish Carlos Strontium Dog, thankyouverymuch.

So, Carlos.

Mick - closer call than I'd have expected but definitely Mick!

In my case, I discovered that the system had decided not to reward me with weekly thrill-power anymore  and had cancelled my subscription for me on New Year's Day!!

I'll check my subs status but I'm fairly sure this isn't the problem - my annual sub didn't renew until early February (and I got the automatic email letting me know that payment had gone through okay).  I think it's just Brexit-related postal meltdown or something.  I'll give it another couple of weeks and then contact subs about whatever issues haven't made it through (the last four, pretty much).

My Progs seem to no longer come on Saturdays but mid week.

My Progs seem to no longer come at all. 

My annual subs renewal payment went through today - starting to wonder where my Progs are though - nothing has arrived here in Norway since the bumper Christmas issue.  Not even sure what I can do about it at this point...

The latest Meg hasn’t shown up yet. I contacted Rebellion on Monday and they have promised to send another, which is pretty good customer service as far as I am concerned.

It's not the customer service element I'm worried about, more the systemic problems there seems to be in getting large-envelope-printed-stuff through the post from the UK to Norway lately...  The Phoenix now seems to be getting through but I'm missing so many Progs and I don't know whether to assume they're lost or just held up somewhere, and that's not something customer service can assist with.  I don't want to hassle them for replacements when they might just turn up so I've held off up to know - if there's no sign of Prog life in a couple of weeks I'll see if anything can be done I guess.

As far as sports films go, I have a soft spot for The Club...

Also: the Norwegian title for Cool Runnings is Kalde Rumper (cold buttocks); not quite up there with the titles  used for The Shining (Hotel of Evil) or Deliverance (Picnic with Death) but still pretty good.
