Just wanna say I really appreciate your blog and these updates.

No-one talking about/watching this?

It's pretty great, sort of high end spy fiction with a ground hog day like conceit but also quite funny and a protagonist who is very likeable even as ... well, you'd have to watch.

it lays out its single sci-fi conceit pretty quickly then explores all the ramifications of it - essentially they can reset time back to the same fixed time point in the year, and the team can remember everything that's happened even as everyone else forgets (some because it's an ability they're born with, others have had a serum)- but, of course, rebooting the planet is very very costly and so, it's a trick they only pull when there's an 'extinction level event'.

I think if you liked Ultraviolet or Slow Horses you might enjoy this.

Have totally missed the 2-? issues of Lion and Eagle in my local FP, will need to go online

Issue 4 out this week!

Price for a complete set - was gonna ask for £20 (about the same for the collection, though, but you'll be able to get 'em all signed!)

I have some of the Keith Burns cover (and the other alt one with the cobra) same price, but first come first served on those!

*sigh* I wish I’d had a chance to do something for A1, what a tome. I was too young to ever be involved in Warrior and frankly, not yet cooked enough as an artist to be involved in A1 - but deadline… deadline I HAVE a credit for… (in a Carla Allison strip, though all I contributed was a tiny seed of an idea to John McCrea…)

I haven't seen this mentioned on the board, so either my eyesight is going or noone has mentioned it yet (it'll be my eyesight)


Anyway, this is coming up, Garth Ennis, Rob Williams, Patrick Goddard, Mike Dorey and Keith Burns and me.

Get your all new Battle Action special right there and get it signed by us!

Also, I'll have copies of the hardback of Stringbags by Garth and Me, and the Lion and the Eagle - this is likely your main chance to get these things signed by the both of us.

I'll also have copies of the full run of Soul Plumber by John McCrea & Me sharing art duties.

(And I will be sketching on the day - pencil head shots, anything more elaborate you might want to hit me up before hand!)

If you're interested in this but find it a bit pricey (it's £80)  I signed up to their mailing list in anticipation and they've offered three separate 30% discount vouchers (roughly once per month). As far as I can tell the voucher applies to any course - though, as it happened, the moore one wasn't available when the discounts applied.

Yoink! Ordered it. I have high hopes that someone suggests to them they reprint Jerry Paris's Bug Hunter, a long out of print/amazing bit of work that is very 2000ad but was published in the magazine Computer and Video Games...

Four issues. 40 pages per issue. Oversized (physically larger than most comics)

Film & TV / Re: The Book of Boba Fett [SPOILERS]
« on: 12 February, 2022, 03:06:40 PM »
It was such a little show, the Book of Boba Fett promises so much, but it ended up being the sort of a reverse breaking bad.

I'd've been good with a slow steady climb to the Hutt throne, series 1 shouldv'e ended with that shot from the Mandelorian with Fett on the throne and Fennec Shand- the whole thing could''ve been about Fett slowly building alliances to defeat whoever was previously on Fett's throne, Fett being worse than anyone else (while at he same time slowly cracking with a little bit of compassion showing through seeding the doubts that series 2 could've played up on). Series 2 starts some months later - Boba ensconced in power but, well what are you gonna do with it? As he starts to decide that maybe he's got it wrong and realising he wants redemption those former allies sense weakness and turn on him, s2 ending with his leaving tatooine, but not before he's demolished all the bad guys and left the keys of the place with someone decent (Cobb Vance steps in) Boba heads off to right wrongs from his past, and now you've got a book.

(I mean, ultimately the Book of Boba Fett should end with him getting his hands on that blade and being the uniting force behind the Mandelorians, we cut to 1,000 years later as some little madnelorian children are being taught all about him in their schools, of the Mando Empire)

ANYWAY -- what we got instead was a deeply unambitious show all about how boba fett met some guys, decided he wanted to run things with two other people despite clearly needing an army, and the best bits - THE VERY BEST BITS - where when the Mando showed up and we got a little connection with mando again

I dunno, I dunno if it was the writers losing interest, or whether it was the main actor just couldn't carry off what was being asked of jim. But give me cobb vance or Din Djaror any day.
