I still don't understand the whole NFT thing and genuinely don't really get why it pissed people off when Pat started peddling them - not saying the anger wasn't justified or anything, just that I didn't really know what was going on.

A part of me likes to think that Pat didn't really understand what he was doing either and was the recipient of some bad advice, but of course I'll never know if that's true.  Also, I hadn't heard anything about antisemitism / Putin flirtations - feckin ell.

He was a brilliant comics creator in his heyday anyway and I wouldn't mind reading what he has to say about his craft. Much as his angry rants get on my tits, I realise that he's a huge part of the reason 2000ad became such an institution and the reason we're all on this board.

It's not showing up for me, I'm afraid.  As a huge fan of beer and, of course, of Alan and Carlos, though, I really love the idea.

That's a shame. Your MS Paint cartoons made me laugh out loud more than once - Just thinking about Friends of the Eastern Front still makes me smile.

Pleasure. And even if it doesn't fill up completely, I'll enjoy the calendar immensely.

The third mastadonic magus doesn't disappoint.  Armed as well - I suppose all those expensive gifts had to be gotten somehow.

I like this even better than yesterday’s one.
Good thing gold, frankincense and myrrh are inedible or the little baby Jovus would never have got any gifts.

With you all the way. Wonder if Mr Christ Snr. built wooden beliwheels for them.

Dreams in the Witch House, however, was beyond awful. Lovecraft's story turned into a limp Harry Potter fan-film. It's not often I watch an HPL adaptation and fail to find anything within that arguably added extra (if completely different) elements of enjoyment, but Witch House managed it. Pitiful. Shits in the Shit House, more like.

I watched that one yesterday, and it had me wondering whether to even bother continuing with the series. Shits in the Shit House indeed!

I would also tentatively add: Shit Thirty Shitx, more like.  Not as shit as the Shits in the Shitch House, but still a bit on the shit side. Still haven't got round to the rest of them.

The board isn't as populous as it was in the early days of the advent calendar, sadly.  Not to worry though, I'll appreciate anything that anyone has to offer, and if it doesn't fill up quickly I'll throw in a second entry.

Thank you for a great thread so far!

Ditto. Thanks,  J 'best newcomer' Ware, it's been brilliant

Good man, Trooper. Didn't think we'd get one this year. I'll go for the 17th.

I only watched Witch House, which was fairly pants, and the one about the lockup auction, which I found a bit disappointing too. For both, there was just too much spectacle and not enough story or creepiness.  Witch House in particular had a hugely haphazard plot that didn't seem to know what it wanted to be.

Also a huge problem for both was the very long focus on their respective monsters.  I found myself wondering what kind of fibreglass they used for the witch's face.

So yeah, so far I'm not impressed.  However, I might watch the Autopsy one based on you guys' accounts.
