Mind you, ‘a punch of Scotsmen’ seems like a reasonable collective noun.

There’s always one trouble maker in every crowd...

The venue - which is a bar-free sports and leisure centre - currently closed as it’s being used as a vaccination centre.  No word on whether it’ll be open by August.

Enjoy your Perth Comic Con, guys.

Thanks Gordon, so that’s that ruled out, maybe leave it and see what the next round of level reductions are?

Given that the Perth con on in the last weekend of August, you'd think there would be some more info kicking about the interweb by now... evidence perhaps of the GRennie's droids lack of faith?

How about we say Perth on saturday 28th August 1pm in a boozer yet to be named....

Now who's in?

Build it and they will come!

I'm thinking this is the inspiration, possibly, but there's another bell ringing that I can't quite place - might be a false alarm, though.
Vertigo’s definitely the inspiration but that’s not the version of the poster/cover I’m familiar with. Was thinking there had been a previous Prog cover riffing on the same source. Really & Truly maybe? But this was the closest I could find.

TV's Timetunnel?

I did see a Policeman deal with one of these very efficiently with a sweeping brush and a few hefty swipes, to much cheering from the surrounding houses

Does any of these ever sell?
Are these just ways of getting partners to think that a comic collection is worth something? :think:

Second Jag yesterday, no side effect, all good!! and a week's hols next week.

Second Jag?  What are you, a deputy prime minister?

 :lol: Nope, Scottish: so its a jag not a jab (which is a punch). Jags are prickly things little thistles, bunnets or jumpers

All this, a letters page and Tharg pays his respects to Bolt too.

So glad to hear that. Well done TMO.

Film & TV / Re: 'Fear the walking dead' - Whats the verdict so far?

I'm continuing through Season 5 of Fear The Walking Dead and like the parent show, it continues to delight and frustrate in equal measure.

Delighting you have Lennie James who can grab you by the heartstrings with just an "Ummm" and a glance to the side as in 210 Words Per Minute (Episode 10 I think where he and Grace are in a shopping mall).

Frustrating are the pathetic shark villain of Logan/Matt Frewer (a non-Lethal version of The Governor/Negan), ott cheese (John Dorie's trick shot*) and storylines you know will only last three episodes otherwise they've painted themselves into a corner (e.g Alicia's conscientious objection).

But overall, I'm still on board as the diverse cast resembles that of Superstore more and more. We just need a fussy Mateo in there now.

* if the "splitting the bullet" trick shot had actually been that; a trick (maybe two shots fired very quickly in succession) then I'd have bought it more. And hey, that might have even added a more believable theme about things not being what they seem in Humbug Gulch. I suppose John Dorrie character relies on a charming performance from Garret Dillahunt and you just rolling with the unbelievableness of his character. Which mostly, I do.

Joking! He’s fine and still firing off his pistol,  he is the shows moral barometer after all.

Please add me to any list, and well done Jim for organising this.
