Is it true? Has Christmas come early? It has! The Orange Ogre has COVID-19! This world may not have much justice in it, but it sure has a sense of humour.

Demographics mean white Americans still dominate the USA, so it's not improbable to see the Orange Ogre sitting in the Oval Office for another four years. You wonder if this is the trend for the next ten to thirty years, with Libertarians using fear of immigration and emphasising ethnic divisions to drive an even more gutting free-market agenda. One Labour Party member on the night of the UK's last General election said he didn't see the Labour Party becoming electable for twenty years. It was a pretty bad night for the Labour Party, and so I thought at the time it was just the lamentations of the Corbyn faithful who had lost, but it might be the stark horrible truth instead. We'll have to hope that Americans in November lead the world back to some sort of sanity.

There's no right age to die, but Chadwick appears to have left us far to young. What might have been, but he did star in some of the most successful films of recent times, immortalised in celluloid forever. Regrettable news.

I'd be a lot more excited about an adaptation that took inspiration from Grant/Breyfogle.

Yes, you forget what a superb series of comics they produced together.

'Do as we say, not as we do.' Our leaders all seem to suffer from a self-entitlement disease. How that Mega-Mind look-alike Dominic Cummings got away with his 'I'll see if I'm okay to drive-by driving' is almost beyond belief. Oh yes, he's pals with the Prime minister, that's why.

I'm sorry to hear Pat's perhaps leaving 2000AD for a while, and yes his messages did get over repetitive, but he has an exceptional body of work almost like no other. I often wonder why he didn't expand into writing television screenplays, or movies and I'm sure he's had a few ideas for shows or comics that never got made.

Nation-States will be the winners after the pandemic. It wasn't the free market that took the strain, millionaires like Richard Branson shamelessly used the crisis to cash in while demanding their workforce take three months unpaid leave. So that might not be quite such good news in the long run, as it will reinforce the 'bugger you' narrative we've seen espoused by Farage and Trump.

It looks like Karl Urban is still onboard for a Dredd return


That's good news, and it seems things are progressing towards a possible green light for shooting to begin. The film variety, I mean, rather than Dreddy Hi-Ex-ing everyone in sight! Will they have the Mean Machine as a comedy relief character or more of a returning threat to the street Judges of Mega-City One?

John Hume, an architect of the Northern Ireland Peace process, has died. A somber day for Ireland, the UK and America.
