I have missed so much, and I just, I don't know what anything is anymore. WHAT IS EVERYONE SAYING. AM I POSH OR NOT. HOW DO I KNOW. I FEEL VERY INSECURE ABOUT BRITISH FOOD.

I suspect that is the idea, Fox - to keep the plebs in their place and identify them more easily by their confusion over what should be a simple set of social rules!

*psst* The lights go out line wasn't quoting Churchill, it was quoting Sir Edward Grey, Foreign Secretary on the outbreak of the Great War - Churchill did riff off it a year before the start of the second world war:
Quote from: Winston Churchill
The stations of uncensored expression are closing down; the lights are going out; but there is still time for those to whom freedom and parliamentary government mean something, to consult together.

Awesome work, guys! That was loads of fun and the shout-out really made my day. (It's pronounced ekidna, but don't sweat it - me and Ee-mon are pretty forgiving guys ;) )

Re-Action sounds great; I've read some  Battle but nothing from Action so it will be completely new to me.

It is a nice coincidence that you and Fox talk about how great Carlos' work is at some length in this podcast, on a sad day for 2000ad fans. It is a fine tribute to him that his work was still gaining fresh admirers after all these years of sheer brilliance.

On the replica Nemesis being beheaded by Torquemada - that was quite a cliff hanger at the time and I remember thinking all week 'how will he get out of this one?'. I was a little bit disappointed by the resolution although it is sign posted with the 'low psychic energy reading' mention early on. I can't remember what explanation I dreamed up and thought was better.

Naturally both Fox and I are heartbroken by the news, it's so terrible. Ezquerra is such an essential part of the prog it is hard to imagine it without him. But he'll live on in his work, and I'm honored to have a hand in preserving that. Can't wait to get to the next Strontium Dog stories, which are some of my favorite.

Conrad, as I said in the Goodbye Carlos thread, I was listening to Fox and yourself enthusing over Carlos' Stainless Steel Rat art as the news came in - as a child deeply affected by Carlos' work, particularly Strontium Dog (WWJD stands for "What Would Johnny Do?" to me), it has always filled my heart to hear you and Fox rave about the comics that shaped me, and hearign you call out Stront as your favourite in the Spinnies and his brilliant art in SSR really helped me today - thanks to you both!

What was that about Sam Fox?  Uncle Sam / Fox?  You know there was a 1980s celeb called Samantha Fox, right?  She released a few records, though don't know if they made it over the pond.  If you feel the urge to google for her, don't do so on a work computer.  You have been warned.



I think one of the Block Mania / Mega Mania boardgames also had a Sam Fox block board...
