Give it all away, my friend. But dramatically. Like you're telling someone a super exciting story,

If they like that pitch with the twist, they'll want to see the script.

Off Topic / Re: Thought Police: Are we allowed to query 'woke'?

It's tough to care about this, because it's games. But my gut reaction was "are you saying they should KEEP the upskirt shots?" because, you know, that's also mentioned in the article.

I can't judge the change of dialogue because, who knows, it's not finished. Is making something slightly less Benny Hill a bad thing? Maybe. Maybe not. We'll see, eh?

I do agree there's a general direction in society where we're headed towards something a lot more puritan which is not great, but I'm not going to be sad at the loss of stuff that's pretty demeaning on the way towards that.

They have to use the kangaroos with the really big pouches.

Lot of ignorance on display here about Australia. It's actually the cork surcharge, for their hats.

Yes, I’m knackered from running from house to house of everyone who bought one. I should read my contracts more carefully.

I've an audible account, stopped paying for it (I basically froze the payments, but stayed a member) and all of these things are also available to me.

(I never listen to them though, but I should!)

General / Re: Eric Bradbury art for sale - 6 pages - prog 212

I wish the original artists (or their estate) got some sort of kickback when original art sold. I mean I'm sure this was sold for probably less  than 200-300 quid at the time it was sold (in fact it may not even have made treble figures, given what the original art market used to be like)

I think this happens in france ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Droit_de_suite - though I;m not sure how it works out in practice)

Anyway, lovely art, hopefully in a good home.

I'll be picking this up next year for a 5 year old Beano fanatic.
And maybe a flick through myself too!

Any word on the creative teams?
Can we assume the ever excellent Lew Stringer will be involved?

He's definitely in the halloween spooktacular (as am I, I think)

Yes and yes.

HURRAH!

Just an interesting question why choose Monster Fun and not something like Buster or Cor. I though both these titles where bigger.

Buster and Cor (as titles) are sort of meaningless to anyone below the age of 40, "Monster Fun" while both a throwback to an earlier title is ALSO a fairly good descriptor of what it is.

I have no insight here, but that seems an obvious answer to me.

Bill Willingham himself has something of a reputation. So I'm not entirely sure I'd read that substack without noting that going in.

I'm sure Jim will pop along shortly to once again patiently explain why it's not just a simple matter of 2000ad deciding to do a new comic. You have to bring your distributors/retailers along with you which is neither easy nor cheap.

Film & TV / Re: Jodie Whittaker to leave Doctor Who.
« on: 03 August, 2021, 06:10:02 PM »
That speech at the end of Capaldi’s run was cringeworthy. It went on forever and felt like the antithesis of what is Doctor was all about—although it was off course a Moffat blog post about what he thought the character should be. Awful. I kind of hope Whitakker’s doesn’t do something so overblown. “Bye, then!”

Sometimes Doctor Who becomes terribly self-indulgant and actorly and is usually more awful for it.

I suspect it's a show that the cast and crew feels it can lend itself to "luvviness" and so we end up with stuff like that.
