I’m a bit behind, just caught up with the Skreemer episode. It’s excellent, I could listen to James Peaty talk about Vertigo comics all day, he’s an insightful chap. Milligan deserves way more recognition for his influence on making mainstream comics have some literary flair. Makes me wish I liked Skip Tracer more; at least Diamond Dogs turned out rather well and it’s good to hear that’s coming back.

Chatting with Robo-Keef about a new collection from the Treasury with stunning black and white art by Luis Bermejo which has been beautifully reproduced by Joseph Morgan and his team. We also talk about the 2020 publishing schedule although events have overtaken that somewhat since we recorded.

Conrad from Space Spinner 2000 joins me to talk about the second Mach 1 collection and, in particular, the Mighty One’s Mach Zero run. We also review the Action 2020 special with spoilers and stay tuned for a Foxy bonus at the end of the episode.

Mike Dorey doing what he does best - grimy tales from the contemporary (and near-future*) society.

* at the time they were published though recent-past now, whether MACH One/Zero or Invasion**.

** Continuity-geek time - we know that the airship was skyjacked in 1988 and MACH Zero takes place not long after that***

*** Apologies if this is covered in the show - I've not actually listened to this episode yet, have spent the best part of two hours struggling with wi-fi in the garden while trying to listen to the latest Space Spinner 2000 at the same time as running a barbecue and helping with gardening****

**** first world problems or what?
