I've said it before and no doubt I'll say similar again if you don't have all the Hibernia stuiff you should and so when an offer like this comes up snatch it, snatch it with both hands or you've life will be that much more empty. Both of these are superb.

Aye, that reminds me of someone asking "What's the new fella like?" and the response being "Oh, he's okay - he takes a toke" - as if smoking the ganja is some kind of positive character reference, as opposed to a simple predilection.

That new Borat movie has two conspiracy theorist Republicans who think Biden drinks the blood of children, but who were kind enough to take Borat in and shelter him from the threat of Covid.

Nowt as queer. Also, aren't all Vegans [insert insulting stereotype here for humorous effect]?

Just a quick heads up we have published a VERY limited reprint of House of Daemon and The Tower King in association with DDC, available here www.comicsy.co.uk/hibernia/

Cheers!

So a chap on one of the Vegan groups I'm in started a discussion about the insult "soy-boy" and used a pretty poor choice of words in his post. He was immediately piled on for using ablist, transphobic and homophobic language. He continued to argue in same vein, the thread was shut and he was ejected as being a bigot.

That's a shame, I initially thought. We all use the wrong language occasionally. But then I looked at his FB posts (public). And yeah. He is a bigot. And conspiracy theorist. And Covid denier.

Not sure what my point is but I thought it strange that someone who shows compassion in one area of life gets it totally wrong in others.

Small haul, bit alas they often are these days.

Immortal Hulk 39 to be honest there's time when the body horror just starts to blurh. I need to revisit this run now for sure.

Skulldigger 5 takes a dark trip to set up its finale. Great comic but only the second best Black Hammer comic this month!

Next couple are pretty unsubtle to say the least, but not the less enjoyable for it. Hellblazer 11 continues this series wearing it politics in its sleeves theme even more clearly than before. Its not really surprising with a Hellblazer comic but it can be a little Millsian in getting its message across, however much a approve of the message. The Scumbag 1 takes the idea of fate throwing loser into a position of responsiblity and turns it up to 11. I mean its entirely cliche but other amps things with such relish I found it impossible not to be washed along with the whole thing.

Best comics of the haul. Colenel Weird - Cosmagog 1 looks astonishing and lays bare the foundation of a tale that allow insight into the cosmic lost wonder that is Colenel Weird. The fact that its set up, so clearly set up is what stops it getting book of the haul. That honour goes to X-Ray Robot 3 done with it set up and also relishing its cliche alternate realities road trip the Allred's handle things with such charm and confidence its impossible not to be utterly impressed.

Aye, I saw him there too. He did the face-pulling, "he's lookin' at me funny, Tommy," routine to the guy sat right next to me.

All seems like another life, now.

Might go with a Marshal Law quote..

"If you're the new messiah, I'm going to be the one to drive in the nails."

I cut that page out of Strip back in the day and had it on my wall at university, along with a lot of 2000AD covers.

Regards,

Robin

that's a damn shame - he got the Covids I understand. I adored Cannon & Ball as a kid, and saw 'em on Blackpool Pier back in the early 80s.
