And the return of the English comic- reading kid! Makes me laugh every time.

I'm hoping that Gove, Patel and the J-Dogg will have their reputations tarnished for a long time to come for sticking with the Clown Prince.   As for Dorries, it's hard to imagine her looking even more ridiculous than she already does.

("Toraidhe" - plunderer / thief (thanks to our Emerald cousins)).

Well, I never knew that, and I'm an emerald cousin.  Well, half-cousin, I suppose, my mam came here from Lancashire.

Which is why the Fomorians came from Tory Island, I would imagine.

C'blimey - Sunak and Javid have quit the cabinet! That's some big names.

Just clocked that a minute ago.  I would say a GE is on the cards, but Johnson seems to have an infinite supply of last straws.

Go Sharky! It's your birthday!

Happy birthday, lad.

I loved Metalzoic, and wasn't a big fan of most post-Horned God Sláine stuff, but when it was good, it was very, very good.   Sláine.

Mother Russia... Mother Russia... DOMINION

I'm not quite the ageing goth that Jim is, but I get the reference.  Not quite sure which to vote for, both stories are great.

In yet more tragic US Supreme Court news, they've now seriously curtailed Biden's efforts to reduce carbon emissions.  Fucking pig-ignorant neanderthals.

Nickelback is great fun, but I think nostalgia wins this one for me, so I'll go with Helltrekkers.
 I miss when the Cursed Earth was a terrifying hellscape rather than a smattering of quiet(ish) Wild West villages.

So is there a case for advertising bans for alcohol?

Quite possibly, yes. Booze companies tend to use the same argument that the tobacco companies used: that advertising is to encourage brand switching,* not to entice people who don't drink into starting. That's probably as much bollocks now as it was when the tobacco companies argued it.

(Let's be honest, any industry that's taking cues from the tobacco industry playbook is almost certainly lying.)

* I don't think I've ever chosen one brand of alcohol over another due to advertising, apart from my early twenties when my choice of cheap draft lager (the primary aim being to procure the largest volume of beer for the least amount of money) could be swayed by whether I was enjoying the Fosters, Carling or Heineken ad campaigns the most at any given time. Even so, a difference of 10p a pint between one or the other in the same pub was more than enough to override any fondness I might have had for Paul Hogan, or whoever… :-)

When I started drinking (legally, anyway, I'm not counting the two-litre bottles of cider in fields), it was Budweiser - watery pish.  Gradually I moved to proper lager, then Guinness.  Of course, Guinness advertising was, and probably still is, all-pervasive and very often very good, but I think the reason I started was because everyone here drinks it and it looks attractive - honestly, it's a thing of beauty, a pint of draft Guinness.

I'm an IPA man these days, and I have to admit it's very often the label that sells it to me.  I love a classy or fun label and there are plenty of them out there.  In fact, now I think of it, I didn't like it for years, then I saw one called a 'juicy IPA' which sounded nice, and I never looked back.  I'm easily influenced for a middle-aged man.  I smoke cigars purely because Nikolai Dante's cigar looked nice once.

That's a fair old stretch of pareidolia right there.  Lucky the internet wasn't around back then; his 'double' would probably be getting Twitter death threats.

 My grud, I haven't seen those Mean Team pages in years! I was only 11 when they came out and I remember really enjoying the absolute carnage contained therein.  Brilliant stuff (and also the introduction of the prototype of Batman's Ventriloquist).

The sequel was a bit lame though, and Avatar Firekind kept me reading through the prog's bad years, so I'll stick.

General / Re: Sideshow Vote II: Does it tally up?
« on: 28 June, 2022, 02:09:19 PM »
In the prog we can have a short story a story than ran for weeks or even two or three parts. So, how do you prefer your stories?
-   Small bursts of 1 to 3 parts
-   Between 6 and 8 episodes
-   10 to 12 parts
-   I like the long run
-   Just tell me a story I do not care about the length

This one, please.  For every Horned God there's a Junker

Firekind, without a shadow of a doubt.  Sci-fi perfection, and one of the best strips Tharg has to offer.

Re: accents - I miss the 1970s eight-year-old English kid accent! 

Me too! The episode where the kid turned into a gruff 17-year-old expressing his appreciation for Medb's tit had me chuckling all day.
