he should die. for real. not hersheyied. and his death should be understated and unsignposted. it just is. and then we should have the citizens' pov, the reality of life under a brutal police state and all the damage done by this conceited, dysfunctional, dreddful man.

oh. and mcmahon.

isn't stranger things mainly a blast of nostalgia for eighties childhoods?

and so timely. it's impossible to read the ace collection of no country without thinking of (and discussing) ukraine, refugees etc. the genius, of course, is that it's also brilliant comics storytelling - and that it doesn't ever preach.

i just think, whatever the bankrolling, at this point phoenix has existed for such a long time that it must be deemed both a success and a model.
a quarterly comic is almost absurd to consider for a 10 year old - 3 months is a significant proportion of their eternity comprehension to wait for the next issue!

as for diminishing excitement at the issue's weekly arrival - this is surely normal? i once left the prog for decades.

kids today clearly do read weekly comics. phoenix has just hit issue 546. it's widely available in smiths and supermarkets, but also has a successful (and good value) subscription model which is in part based around the best a4 envelopes you have ever seen.
the comic is also built around multi-part series, in the main - some of them serious, some silly (do read the collected no country, which is one of the best weekly-serialised comic dystopian tales i've read, prog included). its target audience clearly loves multi-parters.
the key, according my daughter anyway, is to be frequent, to be fun and thought-provoking to read, and to never ever patronise.
phoenix has also been really good over the years at providing plenty of contact with the creators. my sprog was in heaven to attend a free cartooning workshop in gosh comics a couple of years ago with jamie smart, gary northfield and others. she has been making comics ever since.

jodie whittaker ... not for the often poorly scripted end results, but because the very idea of her really inspired and enthralled my sprog.

hmmm ... i'd really like a showrunner to knit everything together and provide us with a little more consequence.
