I wasn't mad about either, but found Bec and Kawl slightly more enjoyable.

Necrophim was ok, though a bit lacklustre.  I always liked Past Imperfect though - a welcome addition to the slots filled by Future Shocks, Terror Tales, Time Twisters, Pulp Sci-Fi, Vector 13 etc when other series finish.

Also, you don't get many 2000ad thrills named after grammatical tenses, so Past Imperfect for me.

I don't remember a lot about American Gothic either.  But I remember Fervent and Lobe very well, and the odd feeling that I was probably too young to be reading stuff like what Almaranda did to that Arab guy, and what the demon in hell was planning to wear on his horns.  It was twisted, perverted and gruesomely violent, but it was great, so Fervent and Lobe for me.

Cheers guys.  Weirdly I think a huge part of the reason it didn't hit me TOO hard* was that I had just been trawling through an ebook and film marathon of Khmer Rouge Cambodia-related stuff, for some reason.

Losing all your possessions doesn't seem so bad compared to losing all your possessions and then being driven out your home to work until you die from starvation or execution.  That was in my mind every time I felt down about myself.

*except for whatever it was that cracked my skull in the explosion, that is.

Touch of Frankmilleritis, I think. Fortunately Frank has managed to claw a few shreds of credibility back, but he still has a fair distance to go.

Just caught up on this thread and holy shit, glad you're still alive mate. Gutted for you about your boat/home. Was this you?

Aye, that's the one.  Somehow my gas cylinders didn't explode - small mercies, I suppose.  Thanks, guys, appreciate all your support.

My Grud, that is something of a clesterfeck.  Hope things pick up for you.

From a certain angle, he could also be an old Etonian who shouldn't be leading a country.

EDIT - the image doesn't seem to be showing, so here's a link.

Trump:  Last year expressing jealousy over the attention a teenage girl was getting from the media, and now doing the same with a dead man.

No it hasn't been your year but hopefully things will pick up for you in 2022.

Sounds good to me - I'm in Dublin city, not sure where you're located.

Just outside, between Celbridge and Newcastle, but a wee bit all over the shop at the moment  - staying in a caravan in a neighbour's yard, but a friend is building a wooden cabin on his land and is going to rent it out to me.  Stay in touch anyway and we'll sort something out for sure.

I did see something about that somewhere but I thought you were joking about having a Viking funeral.

I can't even begin to imagine how you felt / feel about that.

I'm glad you're ok! And then you had a tumble off your bike after that didn't you?

I won't ask you to go over the terrible details again - is there anything you need I could help with? We're both in Ireland, right?

The bike fall was before that - it hasn't been my year...
I'm ok now though, thanks a million for your kind offer all the same.  Hopefully we will catch up sometime though, and have some prog-related craic.

Don't remember the Viking funeral thing - sounds like a case of 'be careful what you wish for' though :)

Gorgeous.  Is it just me or are there shades of Hicklenton in Bates' submission?

Definitely, with a smidge of Carl Critchlow's painted work into the bargain, I thinkā€¦

Critchlow was my first thought too.  But that's definitely a Hicklenton face.

Ah - things I miss from the UK: bakeries and newsagents.

Weirdly, you don't get much of either here in Ireland either.  Newsagents were plentiful when I were a lad but have mostly been consumed by Spars, Centras and the like, while bakeries here are like curry houses - they exist, but they're not really part of the culture the way they are in the UK.
