As sad as Peter Mayhew’s death is it has been lovely to see such a huge outpouring of love for him with nary a bad word from anyone. A rare feat these days.

So, Hellboy.
Darker (Literally. Put a light on, man!), bloodier and swearier than previous movies. You could have not had the intestines falling out and still told the same story.
David Harbour makes a good fist of the title character but his colouring was all wrong; Hellboy wasn't Demon Red, he was more Ginger Caught in the Sun Red (and I know that colour!) and he mumbled through his make up. Enunciate, dear chap!
I'm not keen on Ian McShane so felt he was miscast as Prof Bruttenholm - didn't that character die in the last film?
On the plus side, the script has funny moments - Stephen Graham as the Gruagach - and exciting moments such as Lobster Johnson turning up.
If you go in wanting to hate it, you will. If you go in with an open mind you'll find enough in there to enjoy. If the Del Toro/Perlman movies were four star, this one's a three.

Hunt down books by Dennis Gifford on eBay or somewhere like that. He wrote several on the history of British comics and will be a good place to start.

Books & Comics / The PARAGON annual
« on: 08 December, 2018, 06:43:26 pm »
I've long thought I should collect the Battle Ganesh story from PARAGON - and here it is!

This year's awesome annual is 68 pages of fantastic stories from the brilliant anthology of small press contributors of this parish.

Contents include;
the sci-fi take on the tale of the elephant headed Hindu God in Battle Ganesh, by The Emperor and the late, great Stephen Prestwood.

Dinosaurs in Africa in a Bulldog tale from the archives, written as always, by Jason Cobley

Rupert the Bear style rhyming antics from L'il Ganesh, by Dave Candlish and Jim Cameron

An all new Spencer Nero adventure, written by our own Greg Meldrum and Scott Twells.

Imagine if Dudley Watkins (creator of The Broons and Lord Snooty, amongst others) drew for the small press? Larks abound in Oor Ganesh by Dave Candlish

And more!

If you miss a decent Christmas annual like you used to get as a kid then this is the comic for you!
68 pages, A4 in size, perfect bound. £5.95 includes P&P.
Get yours from www.paragoncomic.blogspot.co.uk

And for the true connoisseur a hardback edition is available from http://www.lulu.com/shop/paragon-comic/paragon-annual-2018/hardcover/product-23901265.html

... and then I saw some of the comments, and was reminded how we've still got such a long way to go.

If I've learnt one thing in all my years online it is NEVER. READ. THE. COMMENTS.
