A new Humble comics bundle is out:

It doesn't seem quite as good as the Image bundle last month, but still worth picking up (some Ennis, Gaiman, Moore, Matt Wagner).

He seems to have a very small body of work, considering how long he has been in the industry and how well known he is.

(Grant got his first.  Any speculation that Mark got his after furiously lobbying his connections in the Scottish Government for a nomination in order to keep up with his one-time mentor are, of course, completely ridiculous.)

If he has connections, they're probably with Labour, rather than the SNP.

Is that right?

I was always more puzzled about why all the Judda seemed to be about seven and a half feet tall

Platform boots.

Platform boots, winged helmets and snazzy judge-pants (as seen in the interrogation scene). Those Judda were style icons.

Sector-house teleporters were in place by 2120 in the alternate future of City of the Damned, and weren't they used in Trifecta too (or did I dream it)?  Teleporters have also cropped up a few times in the hands of perps (the recent Sharks-on-legs story), aside from the DJs purloined ones.

Thanks. That's probably a better answer than my question deserved.

General / Judda teleporters

I've just re-read Oz and I'm puzzled by the Judda's teleporters. Were these ever used again or were they ditched by Wagner et al?

They look like a narrative dead-end to my untrained eye, since their use would make many plots redundant.

The other one. He would hi-ex extras off the set for hardly any reason at all.

Rob Schneider? J├╝rgen Prochnow?

Yesterday I was low on energy but decided to meet up with some friends for a drink. Turns out that one guy who I've known for years was an extra in the 95 Judge Dredd movie. He had quite a lot to say about a certain actor who had a very bad reputation for how he would treat people on set.

Yeah, I've heard Max von Sydow can be a primadonna.

The Kermode and Mayo film review is usually entertaining.

But tapes were always bloody awful: crap quality; horrible to use; irritatingly linear in nature; prone to getting eaten. I don't miss my stereo munching a favourite album at all.

I remember the annoyance of stretched tape on favourite albums. Eventually everything started to sound like My Bloody Valentine.

Sitting through two minutes of copyright bollocks before watching a film? No thanks.

After having to rewind the video tape as well.

Got to agree with the above. The Image bundle is incredible. Some great stuff in there that I wouldn't have seen otherwise.
