Cheers Moly, I am in ROI unfortunately (*fortunately  ;)) though.

Evercade games are not sold by any retailers over here as far as I can tell, I have ordered everything online over the past couple of years.

I did have a Game.co.uk account for years, but as with pretty much everything after Brexit, Amazon UK is the only reliable and cost effective way to get an item delivered from the UK to ROI.

Having looked at my spreadsheet I'm not convinced we'll be getting The Scarlet apocrypha. I reckon Dan's name is there for Epicedium. I'm guessing the contents will be something like:

SD - Crossroads
DR - Mirrors
SD - The Alphabet Man
SD - High Moon
SD - The Mutant Sleeps Tonight
DR - Deals
DR SD - Hate & War
DR - Night Of The Hunters
DR - Epicedium
DR - Diners

That's ~220 pages. Complete Scarlet apocrypha would be another 48 pages of strip which is pushing the limits for one book

I would say you are spot on with that list bar one omission; Durham Red 'Ghosts' from the 1994 Winter Special is a crucial chapter in the Hogan run (also referenced in the Abnett finale of 'The Empty Suns').
It has to be included in this collection too.

And for completion sake, I'd personally add Strontium Dog 'The Walking Lady' from the 1992 Sci-Fi Special & Strontium Dogs 'Angel Blood' from the 1993 Sci-Fi Special to the collection too.

The new exp is up for pre order this week and they have announced it comes with 18 capcom games pre installed

I pre-ordered the EXP recently, looks the business.
New cartridges coming thick and fast too, and plenty of Amiga software on the horizon for 2023 apparently.

Worth noting that some of the old cartridges were discontinued this summer due to licencing lapses, so it's added a bit of collector frisson to my attempt to get em all.

Currently discontinued:

- Namco Collection 1
- Namco Collection 2
- Technos Collection 1
- Oliver Twins Collection

Film & TV / Re: On telly this week

The rather brilliant 1977 Ghost Story for Christmas episode STIGMA is on Iplayer after being rebroadcast last week on BBC 4.
Probably the best the annual anthology ever got and probably one of the most inexplicably upsetting horror stories ever made for TV. Exactly the type of creepy seasonal viewing I feel is missing from the Christmas listings each year right now.

Except for the new Ghost Story for Christmas episode this year, the one in 2019 and the one in 2018?*

Thanks for bringing my attention to the Stigma repeat, though. Didn't know it was on.



*(Also 'new' episodes in 2005, 2006, 2010 and 2013 for those keeping count.)

The BFI have finally released the most recent quartet on DVD - available right now:

A few of the originals will also be available on Blu-Ray in time for Christmas:

Lastly is one of my Fav ABC warriors from Clint Langley - Mongrol - I wish I had seen him at work but I left my Sketch book with him while I was at a couple of panels.


The effort Clint puts into convention sketches is unreal.
Top Art Droid and top bloke.

The others are great too, in particular those two by unwavering hand of the Higgins Droid.

Been a while since the last series of Brass Sun, and I've found that my fondness for it has cooled in the interim.
On the other hand the original Flesh remains seared into my skull after all these years.

I can't vote against S.B. Davis twice in one day - Ampney Crucis Investigates.

The Wagner & Dolan series sees the Mean Machine going up to (Round) 4.

Sinister Dexter.

I mean c'mon.

Cradlegrave of course.

The Out will go a few rounds yet.
