These are getting quite long compared to my opening one-liners. Is that because later thrills are just less derivative so require more explanation? What do I do when the Megazine starts? Ignore it?
Do whatever you like, but I’m enjoying reading them. I’d happily see you bring in the Megazine as well, if you can. Good luck with the dross that’s to arrive shortly, if you do continue, though!

There were some pearls among the pigstomm, mind you.  Mostly by John Smith: Killing Time, Revere, Firekind - but there was also Zenith 4 and, well, the Summer Offensive if you liked that kind of thing. I did.

By all means keep them as long as you want. These recaps are hugely enjoyable.

I've just realised that the design behind her in your top middle one is The Hoop. Brilliant.

Cheers,  Frank, that's actually amazing. Reminds me of the hours of fun I would have with my parents' Steeleye Span sleeve as a kid. https://www.amazon.com/All-Around-Hat-STEELEYE-SPAN/dp/B000000E7L

I thought I'd seen Superman, but...



I prefer the costume to the Snyder version.  But... you know... Nicholas Cage.

I'm quite guarded in non-Internet social situations so end up not saying much.

This is why they invented beer.

He's right, you know. Before teaching adults had more or less cured me of my chronic shyness, it was beer all the way.

Get the cans in, Sharky boy.

What a comp.  One of the best I've seen.  The quality has been amazing all round but for me it has to be Chasen9ne; despite the style being completely different from Gibson's it captures the spirit of the series perfectly.

Mind the oranges, Marlon being a deeper reference than I thought...



Yep, I copped that lonnng after reading it; or possibly had it explained to me on this forum. I don't quite remember.  Who would have thought it was a layered story.

Complementary colours, innit. I remember reading an article  (probably on Cracked) about the absolute tsunami of orange-and-teak films these days, and I haven't not been able to notice it since.

So much for anarchy!

Only joking, of course. I was just entertaining myself by imagining what the Politics thread and the Global Warming one would look like played out in real life, with all of us staggering about half-cut  :)

There I was, roaming a globally-warmed apocalyptic  landscape full of filthy, ragged survivors led by brutal gang leaders, with huge, shiny, black (I presume) global government trucks occasionally driving through in convoys to throw out packaged food for the famine-stricken wretches to fight over in the mud.

Not cool, subconscious. Left me proper uneasy.

Perhaps with an invigilator present, to steer the conversation away from statism, climate change and vaccines ;)

Wasn't his being a Dark Judge enough for you? Probably not; Die Laughing wasn't quite worth the wait.

Well, I'm not saying I didn't like Garth on Hellblazer.  And yeah, it holds up way better than Preacher in my opinion.  It's just that particular bit, his instant transformation from drunken bum back to streetwise wideboy, that made me scratch my chin a bit.

I only recently read the spinoff series about Kit's life in Belfast - quite brave of both him and Vertigo to do a comic on a minor supporting character without magic, mysticism, violence, sci fi or fantasy.  And it was great; sort of a female-fronted Irish Auf Weidersehn Pet / Rock and Chips vibe. Who would have thought the Americans would go for it?
