Only up to Ep2. I’m on record as very much not being a fan of the original series, but I’m enjoying the TV series a lot.

Out of curiosity, what didn't you like about the comic, Jim?

Anyone else watched it?

I've seen the first 3 so far and am in two minds about it. 

I'm liking Tom Sturridge.  He's certainly got the look of Morpheus down.  When he relaxes and stops over-enunciating every word, he's pretty much spot on, which is no mean feat

There's something about the general tone of it that just feels a little too in awe of it's source material (like Synder's Watchmen), and there's an air that its extremely keen to emphasis how grown up it is by parachuting in the odd bit of tactical swearing.  It reminds me a little of "Angel" at times. 

It's following the order of the comics very closely (basically an episode per issue so far) which should in fairness mean that once it gets past the opening issues which were fairly traditional (hero embarks on quest to regain powers and show audience what his character is) and into the interesting stuff post "The Sound of Her Wings", it could really take off

The decision to set it in a non DC universe is a good one  (but then keeping Cain and Abel seemed fairly pointless for an audience not familiar with DC lore.).   

I hope it does well as it's obviously had a very large amount of money and love poured into it.

Twisty mctwist in Brink indeed.  Hope thats not a bluff from Nolan, but genuine.  I've loved this run, loved the space its been givento breathe and to let its nuances slowly emerge.    Why there isnt a nice big hardbacks of Brink baffles me.\

If you're in London, the FP store has most of the Titan Charelys War HBs for as cheap as £1.99

There's 10 pound difference in the price between the Webstore version and non-webstore one.

Is the only difference the cover?  No additional material with the Webstore one?   Will go with the non exclusive one if so.

It is only the cover that is different

Thanks

I think I'm very much at subscription saturation point.  And even without that, Paramount + line up looks fairly thin gruel

Enjoyed the bits I saw today. 

You'll never top an in person con, but rheres lots.to like about a format where you can watch on your own telly at home (or phone when you're waiting to drive your kids around for the whole weekend).  And being able to watch later is a winner too.

Did miss a bar though.

 The Out for me.  It's been the most surprising, unpredictable thrill in a long time.  It can, and does go anywhere.  It's grown in scope and scale every week.

Only Book 3 of Halo was a true classic for me (Gibson's art was never better) but it felt like things were just getting started, and the real story hadn't yet started.

Dredd was great.   There must have been a huge temptation to make an idea as strong/fun as that into a mutli-parter, but having it as a one and done felt positively luxurious.

Another vote for the Incognito ones.  They're the only supplier I've found whose 2000 AD boxes don't have "200AD/MAGAZINES" in large black bold type printed on the front.
