Good Meg but Angelic and Devlin are the stars of the show. I'll happily take a collected Hardcover of each, thanks.

I still own  lot of FF books, probably around 70% (without checking) of the original run and a couple of the later ones.

One of my faves was Armies of Death which carries on directly from Trial of Champions and has you literally raising an army to fight some random evil that I cannot remember. Crypt of the Sorcerer is another one that really stuck with me. Great book.

I'm going to single out Scorpion Swamp as the utter piece of crap that it is. It's far to vague in it's setting to keep my interest and the paragraph's aren't very descriptive.

I was a never a big fan of the Lone Wolf books but Way of the Tiger is pure gold. Assassin (book 2) is the best in the series, all other viewpoints are to be considered at the very least misguided and ill-informed or at the most, just plain old wrong.

I backed Beast Hunting Battle Badgers and it is a lovely book.

I also got a piece of original art and a metal badge as part of my pledge. Very nice!

Spiderman: Miles Morales on my fancy pants PS5. The graphics and gameplay are topnotch but both are surpassed by the story.  It's a wonderfully crafted tale with great voice acting and visual set-pieces.  Highly recommended!

I also got free PS5 upgrades to both Doom Eternal and Resident Evil: Village so I've been replaying those with their fancy pants ray tracing and 60 fps which is nice.

You can never have too much Doom, to be quite honest.

Has anyone received there set of four badges yet?

I had an unopened empty bag with invoice delivered and nothing else. Anyone else had a similar problem?

I'm happy for you to quote my words of condolence, Jim.

My real name (if required) is on my Twitter.

Resident evil village

I'm currently on my third play through and I love it!

For those who haven't played - This game builds on the story that started in Resi 7 but also packs in a lot more enemies than the previous game.  There's a varied selection of puzzles as well, some of which are actually fun. 

All of that aside the crowning achievement in this game are the moments of genuine horror. I even let slip a loud Fucking Hell in one particular section.

Stunning game, I highly recommend!

Wait... Does this means that Earth is not flat? I must be awfully lied to.

Yes, the Earth is flat... On all six of it's sides!*


*For any Flat-Earthers out there, I'm joking.

I only met Dave and family once. It was at the 2000AD 40th anniversary and they were lovely, even letting me take a photo of Mini-Bolts Gronk teddy.

My sincerest condolences to Daves' Family and Friends.

I think you're right. I might be thinking of the tv miniseries of JATA.

Jason and The Argonauts.  The original one. The Good one!

It was on the telly this afternoon and even though I've seen it many times over the years, by Grud* I watched it again! It's still a fantastic watch and the stop-motion animation remains some of the best I've seen in film. The Bronze Giant and Skeleton scenes are particular highlights.

Nobody.  About a bloke that's a bit tasty and shit! It's more than that really as the guy in question is now leading the quiet family life and in a moment of what is pretty much absolute boredom decides to go back to his old ways. Not as over the top as John Wick and a half decent watch in its own right due to some great acting and fight choreography. Features Christopher Lloyd as The Dad. Worth a watch.


*I don't believe in Grud. Spoons are open for debate...

Prog / Prog 2230 - Takin' Care Of Business
« on: 01 May, 2021, 07:13:43 PM »
Eye catching Intestinauts cover by Pye Parr. I love the designs of these plucky little Gut-Scrubbers.

There's a Droid Life and Tharg touts the next Regened Prog - 2233, featuring Pandora Perfect. I liked the first one-off, it was a fun tale.

Dredd - A Penitent Man, Part 6. Final episode in what has been a very good run. Things end in a way I wasn't expecting and it looks like we'll be seeing more of Kyle in the future. Maybe this is all leading to a The Pit style Mega-Epic with Dredd doing a stint in the SJS to root out some of the shit. I'm probably wrong.

Thistlebone - Poisoned Roots, Part 10. I love this strip but for those who are finding it a bit slow this episode ramps it up a touch. Malcom and Seema meet for a drink and things take a bit of a turn. I'm wondering if Seema allowed herself to get captured and her friend who was coming to pick her up is actually following them from a safe distance. I'm probably wrong.

Deadworld - Transpolar, Part 2. Again, I was surprised by how this ended. Not only was it fairly optimistic but it looks like Death and Co. have a surprise coming.

"It's raining Nukes. Hallelujah - It's raining Nukes... You Pukes!" I dare say it'll all end in tears. This strip is pure Gold!

Tharg's 3riiler - Symbiotic Love Triangle. The Intestinauts return and things are a bit different as one of them seems to be heading out to the wider world. With a little help from his friend... This is a fun opener and acts as a good counter-point to the darker strips in the Prog.

Feral and Foe II, Part 7. Another great episode. Krod continues to steal the show until the end when the others seem to have come to grips with their bodies. The WoodGod Emissary is a sight to behold!

There's a Letters page.

Outstanding Prog!

Thistlebone: I fear folk looking for horror action are going to be disappointed: this is the action. Which is to say, creeping tension, unsettling imagery and odd incidents is what this strip does, and it does it brilliantly.

I agree. Thistlebone is one of my favorite strips in recent years and I have the lovely hardcover of the first series sat next to me. I think the slow burn nature is a benefit to this kind of tale/Folklore Horror.

Deadworld is just glorious and another of my favorites. Three cheers for brave, loyal Sir Robin Judge Gargon!

Dredd continues to intrigue and Feral and Foe is great. The 3hriller? Didn't do much for me I'm afraid. Still, it's only the first episode so we'll see what happens.

Looking forward to the return of Hope...
