Megatropolis, Dreddnaughts,

Will be back when they are.

Just to clarify; I never genuinely suggested that it's intended to be read as "Major Rack on her", t'was just that my own puerile mind jumped to that mildly amusing conclusion.

Will keep the innuendo commentaries strictly alluding to demonic dildos for the remainder of '21.

Maybe for the 45th we could just all meet in a park with a bag of cans and a picnic.

Now yer talking.

Big horror fan, and of The Conjuring movies, so picked up the 1st issue of The Conjuring: The Lover there at the weekend.

Best thing about it was the fab retro cover by Art Droid Garry Brown.

Otherwise, a pretty weak offering in my view.
First half of the comic contained an uninspired set-up for the main arc, second half of the comic contained a pretty poor one-off 'Thargs Terror Tales' style story by Scott Snyder of all people. I know the guy can write terrific horror (such as the outstanding 'Severed' and 'Wytches'), so a real missed opportunity here.

I had already blindly pre-ordered issue 2 on ComicHub, but other than a satanic miracle, I won't be back for more after that.

Not for any reason in particular, but after all these years, this was the Meg that made me pull the plug on the standing order in my LCS.
I think I only bothered reading the meat & potatoes Dredd.

A freestyle life of cherry picking awaits - will keep an eye on the monthly Meg threads for the return of some of the strips or creators I enjoy.

Interesting - Spacewarp has teamed up with Shift (such a great comic check it out) to produce a newstand edition.

So Major Rakhana has a modest bra cup size, eh?
what?

Try reading her name in an Australian accent.

I dunno lads, I may have to completely re-evaluate everything I thought I knew about the Bazooka Jules comic too.

would love to see another such event.

The 40th event was literal lightning in a bottle - I cannot see it being replicated in future years due to the absence of creators and fans we have since lost, and those we could possibly lose before the 50th.

Cheers lads, have looked around there a bit over the weekend, but still can't find a retailer that would place you on a 'guaranteed' pre-order list (including Smyths Toys).
My offer of pre-paying the €500 in advance was laughed at.

Really now isn't an ideal time to become a first time home owner, but then no time since 2008


Can confirm that pre-2008 was no picnic either.

Best of luck with the new digs, Hawk.

I never could sympathize those babbling idiot Belters, so was delighted when Season 5 gave me a reason to embrace my xenophobic hatred.

Earth must come First.

Halfway through 2021 and still can't get my hands on a PS5 for love nor money.

Anyone know if pre-orders are available from any UK / ROI retailers?

Had one of those days yesterday, so went for two ice cold bottles of Birra Moretti and a comedy on Netflix as soon as I got in from work.

The Naked Gun 2&1⁄2: The Smell of Fear was my chosen tonic. Still a classic.

Is there a bigger 'separate the art from the artist' situation than still finding The Juice funny after all these years?

A very, very decent haul for me, including the following:

TMNT: The Last Ronin issue 3; Only quibble here relates to the gulf of time between issues - otherwise it's a meaty turtle soup as per the previous two chapters. Eastman, Laird and Waltz continue to deliver.
BRZRKR issue 2; Keanu and Co. deliver a strong second issue, including an intriguing origin story for the immortal protagonist. Two more issues to go with this arc, and enough goodwill thus far to give them both a pre-order green light.
Grendel: Devils Odyssey issue 6; Another 'first contact' scenario for The Paladin and Sigma-Seven. The encounter with each planet and its inhabitants has remained fresh through the series - anything remains possible. Faultless.
Red Room Issue 1. I'll preface this with the key point; it's about internet snuff films. If that doesn't sound like your cuppa, best avoid. Otherwise you are in for a stomach churning treat. I'm only vaguely aware of cartoonist Ed Piskor - I know he hosts a popular YouTube show, and is generally well regarded, but (I believe ) this is the first time I've read anything written or drawn by him (I probably would have picked up his 'X-Men: Grand Design' series, but had already given up on Marvel a few years before it was released). Back to the topic on hand; this was the first 10/10 comic I have had the pleasure of reading in a very long time - grimy, disgusting and depraved, it evoked memories of reading 'dangerous' material in days gone by (some 2000AD content in the 80's when I was a young kid, and some Vertigo content in the 90's when I was a teen). Intriguing story, superb artwork and a huge first issue stand-alone story. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
I will paraphrase Piskor's cheeky comment in the editorial discussing his own comic at the back of the book; "It's been a long time since you had a new monthly comic to look forward to. I know".
It has, Eddie. Too fuckin long.

Has Ennis ever written Batman before? (Other than his cameo in Hitman.)

Back in the late 90's when Ennis was riding high on a wave of ultra violence and dick jokes I added everything he was writing to my pull list - I'm talkin 'Medieval Spawn / Witchblade' levels here.

Anyway - he did three issues of 'Legends of the Dark Knight' with Will Simpson during that period, and the only thing I can recall about it was that it was kinda disappointing.
