One of the Penny Dreadful versions was a Count of Monte Cristo type with a secret lair, a variety of gadgets, (funded using what remained of his vast fortune), batwings, a tendency to lurk in shadows and fog, and an overwhelming desire to right wrongs and defend the innocent. He also liked carving the letter "S" into people/things a couple of decades before Zorro demonstrated a similar habit. His secret identity was Bertram Wraydon.

He'll walk out unassisted claiming all along that he's been robbed by cheaters. He's pathologically narcissistic, so it's his only option.
I bet he'll hear this music in his head as he goes:


Nope, I see absolutely no parallels between the strangely-hued, monasyllabic monster which is fuelled by rage and destroys everything in its path, and the Hulk.

The latter. Something to show folk though.

They don't all have spines, incidentally. I think that's largely dependent on how many pages they have, though you'd have to ask Mr. West about that - he handles the Lulu side of things, (and may be adding a few pence to cover website costs and stuff for all I know).

Strangely enough, I recently bought a copy as well. Very much my thing to the extent that some of the stuff I've done for Hallowscream in the past looks as if it's directly referencing/parodying bits from these stories, (which it isn't, 'cos I've only just read them).

Well, it says 7354 so maybe it is a literacy problem?

I'm seeing it as "7353", (he's posted twice elsewhere in the meantime), so maybe you're just in a parallel universe or something.

I feel the need to ensure people that a certain story in the upcoming issue of Hallowscream was written by me a few months ago and that the bearded, bespectacled, celebrity sceptic named "James Rawkins" encountering something from 'the other side' in a haunted house is nothing more than an unfortunately timed coincidence. (Probably.)

RIP Mr. Randi.

Must be a Google Chrome thing. I've been seeing neither avatars nor emoticons for several days.

Well I think he looks like Patrick Troughton in a wig on that cover.

I finally got an email back earlier today. My missing 2202 should now be getting sent out.

I'm still waiting for a response as well, with no sign of the two progs I'm missing. Newsagents not an option for me.
