Oh no, save me from your profanities! lol

I stand by my original comment, which I was warned about, but whatever.  Go fuck yourself, you Russian apologist piece of shit! You were a cunt then and you've proven yourself to be a cunt since, so fuck off back to your soviet facebook factory!

I'm sure my Ukrainian friends would agree that filth like you deserve to have their throat ripped out like every other Russian!

Slava Ukraini!


Thankyou for reading my Fiends of the Eastern Front fan-fiction! :)

I want to say that I have no recollection of anyone protesting or complaining about NATO intervening there. At least not in my neighbourhood, nor on the news.

Do you really not recall any protests against the Iraq invasion?  Holy feck.

They didn't show them on Russian TV

This Meg compels me to post, as I often don't.

Fantastic cover, classic surfin' goodness! That B&W version is particularly lovely.

Dredd: How could I resist such marvellous Zoidberg/Cthulu worshipping people (missing my old avatar). A not so subtle representation of one of those crazy religions humans have, at least in my head, but it's great fun, hail Profundia!

Death Cap: Creepy mushroom action, great stuff. A long time ago I criticised Boo's art, in a way that came across worse than intended and if I didn't apologise at the time I should now, as he's one of my favourites these days and indeed, for many years (Sorry Boo!). The horse reminds me of the old Ron Smith horse from the black plague, one of those visceral images that has always stuck with me, that bit when he got bitten. The art has that same "in your brain" effect.

Diamond Dogs: I'm afraid I don't like this much, so in the interests of not repeating the aforementioned sin, I'll skip on...

Lawless: Holy sneckin' funt! Like pretty much everyone, I've been loving Lawless since it started. The writing is Abnett, so that goes without saying at the worst of times but Lawless has been the best thing in the Meg without doubt for years now I guess. The artwork started out great and has only improved over the years. It's what we all used to say we missed from the golden years, B&W artwork with a crazy amount of detail and obvious "work", in the manner of O'Neil, Belardinelli, McMahon et al. This copies none of those in any way yet has that same awe-inspiring effect. That's up till now. This month, it's been kicked up a notch. Is it the lockdown effect? How long did that first page take? And the rest? The detail, the crazy reflections in the SJS helmets, I was stunned. Took me nearly an hour to get through that I'm sure, just beautiful. 

Surfer: However good Lawless is, it's certainly equalled by the privilege to read that is Wagner and MacNeil doing anything. Chopper has sometimes felt a bit overdone on occasion, but not this time. A fresh extension of the story with some fantastic boarding action, more than worthy of the promise in the cover. I sense dark times ahead...

Hawk the Slayer: The best extra to come with the Meg ever. I can't remember if I ever saw the film and if I did it was once, back in the mists of the 80s. As someone else said, I was more of a Krull man too :) Absolutely loving it though. Ennis moves the action along nicely with some great characters, new and old and you don't get much better than the Flint droid for artwork (apart from everyone else above that is also "brilliant!"). It's cheesy fantasy of course but it's raised well above that somehow by these masters. I don't know how he does it but his art has always looked at first glance a bit scrappy and rough, yet it's not by any means. Loved those red and black pages, very Shakara and a nice evil contrast to the "real world" parts. 

This slightly tipsy review has been brought to you by Ardbeg, with musical accompaniment by Dälek.

As for "Putin is bad", I could say a few things pro-him and anti-him here, but I'd rather stay neutral on affairs like this

Fucking neutral? Maybe you're not a fascist, but you're certainly a cunt!

"Good news", though as it stands, John DiMaggio isn't included. What!? Bender is 100% John DiMaggio!

Hopefully he's doing what Dan Castellaneta did and just getting more money out of them. Apparently he “felt the proposal was not competitive based on the success and name recognition of the original series.” King Zog obviously doing better out of Netflix (Disenchantment, new series out now!)

C'mon Hulu, let old Bender wet his beak!

They'll get back to you soon enough I'm sure. Dealing with a missing prog usually takes a while and given the list above, I'm feeling a bit sorry for the poor support droid.

Clearly Brexit is to blame!

 ::) Sigh, mine is in French.

In a way I'm kind of glad, cos as soon as it was handed over, I could see it was packaged poorly (sliding about inside) and the corners were going to be damaged. Opened up and right enough, damaged corners.


Ah, Némésis le Sorcier!

Mine is waiting at the post office (I assume), so that'll be a bit of excitement/disappointment for tomorrow.

Fantastic, thanks for posting this! Tasty Brett Ewins, on a bed of Moebius :)

Great music too!

Hi all,

thought I'd take a break from lurking to share this. It's the closest thing you'll get to a live gig that I've been missing for a long time now and has brought me some hope that things will return to normal eventually.

Even if you don't like heavy/hardcore music this is incredible, 360 degree view (VR if you have it) close up gig by the galaxy's greatest band, Boris:


Streaming for the next 10 days. Best enjoyed with Hakushu single malt  :)

Best wishes to all of you, especially Tharg and the droids, you've done a marvellous job of keeping our thrill power supply going the past year!

Enjoy :D

This thread. But you know, come to think of it...

Coen Brothers films
Breaking Bad

This thread and people who seem to be using it as an excuse to slag people off e.g. fonky. Please fuck off again, that's a post written by a real cunt.
