This year has been a bit rough, for the last couple of months at least. I can just about manage my mental health when it's low but one unfortunate outcome is I seem to be isolating myself more than I ever have before.... I have lots of friends, luckily, but I've had no desire to be social or even meetup with anyone for a long time now.

I used to enjoy the feeling of being a good person once I'd donated. Universal donor blood too!

Sadly my weakened heart and possibly the prescription drugs meant an end of my largess.

They wrote and said that I could still help by encouraging others.

So go on!

Tom Hanks has stated that this is the last one.

Didn't George Lucas say that after a New Hope?

I’m interested to hear your thoughts on Hollow Knight - its an almost universally hyped game, but I absolutely despised it!

Will be a while before I get round to it Rad, after a few days of pottering around with Red Dead Redemption 2 it's finally got the hooks in - and they're in pretty deep.

I think I'm missing something.

Recent Dredd stories* have been credited to Kenneth Niemand, leading to speculation concerning the identity of the author.

The stories are well-written enough that the author is clearly not a newcomer to comics and the level of engagement with the concepts and themes at the heart of the strip suggest they're unlikely to be a first time Dredd writer either.

As demonstrated by the list of 2000ad pseudonyms above, the writers most likely to employ pen names are members of editorial staff wishing to conceal their connection to the publisher, but both Nerve Centre employees with scripting experience have stated they're not Niemand.

The list of writers who've scripted Dredd for 2000ad is still pretty short, and the Niemand stories published so far don't exhibit the stylistic tics or thematical concerns of any of them. Niemand's either an infrequent contributor or an established author switching to Southpaw.

One theory posits a former freelancer currently enjoying success in US comics, but I'm not sure I've ever read that particular author write anything as rank as Block Buds (2113-2114).  Fun exercise, though.

* And the one-off where Starlord* was revealed to be recruiting pre-teen jihadis for his space war (2061, Dec 2017)

You feel slightly dirty after reading a Hicklenton strip, as if the arterial spray that fills many of his panels has drizzled out of the page and coagulated on your lap (ugh!).

You should see his artwork before it was edited for publication - it's even more filthy than you think, with all manner of free-spurting appendages and implied sordidness.

I'm lost. There's one boarder who I know is called Ken but I think I'm missing something.  I love Thistlebone though; very much a Kill List vibe.
