There are just too many threads that go absolutely nowhere...

Yeah, the bugaboo in Johnny's head for one. Felt as if that was really building to something - who/what's it going to be? How does it know so much about 'the project'? What's it leading Johnny towards?

It's eventually jettisoned with none of these questions answered and never mentioned again, without ever getting a name, or even a species classification/explanation. Ultimately feels like a lot of time spent on a thread that turns out to impact absolutely nothing.

Maybe it's related to the deathly voice in PJ Maybe?'s head in that last storyline...

It was jarring to have the entire show thrown away for a shock ending at the time, and it still - even after so many shows have attempted similar "twists" - works magnificently.

Not sure I follow you on that one - if it hadn't had that shock ending then there still wouldn't have been any further series.

I was delighted to find the whole of Life & Death in one fat volume, and then surprised that I didn't really enjoy it much.

There are just too many threads that go absolutely nowhere, and the mean-spirited atmosphere of the Feral stuff just seems to pervade the whole when it's all in one book. It's Wagner and Ezquerra, so of course there are plenty of good bits along the way, but the whole is less than the parts.

That's about how I feel - in the time I've been reading 2000AD the treatment of Feral was one of two low points from Wagner (the other being that resurrection of the Angels which went nowhere).  I'm thinking if he didn't like the character then just don't write him?

Consider this nicked.

Steal away, I nicked it off Imgur!

I only signed up to Imgur after Photobucket got arsey about free links, and now I'm fucking addicted to short videos of cats and dogs being cute, kids and drunken idiots hurting themselves, and endless pop culture memes.


Glad it's not just me.  I usually end up there after following an image link from this very forum, and end up trapped in a spiral of - well, you've just about covered it in your post.

...unless its a stupid kids book you've been hunting down for thirty years to find out how it ends.


Which book was that (obviously you don't know the title, but how did it begin)?

Ah man, I loved Moviedrome.  It's how I saw Trancers and Terminator.

Also, Cox directed my favourite ever film.  Repoman, obviously!


Another vote for Alex Cox Block from here!

Hope you've stocked up on your bottled water. Block Mania's heading your way!

Water?  Don't touch the stuff.  Nothing but shampagne and clean-o-spray man for me!

Love Island host Caroline Flack aged just 40

BBC.

Can't say I'd heard of her before today but I've since heard phrases such as "committed suicide after being hounded by tabloid journalists".  I'm sure the truth will come out (though if that phrase is true then it might be difficult to get the whole story without digging).

(see "Diana killed during high-speed chase by paparazzi" versus islamophobic conspiracy theories about muslims and the royal family).

2000AD Prog 200 Let the reading galaxy celebrate! "I, Tharg, bring you future-worlds!"

Prog 200 - not a jumping-on prog, with mostly continuing stories, except for one.  The tale of Kreelmans Nelson Bunker and John.

2000AD Prog 198: "By the right… SWARM!" Revenge of the Thrill-Suckers!

We're in the age of Tharg stories (and I'd maintain good Tharg stories).
