Got the Poster Prog recently as I 'm a new Subscriber but today, in pure Future Shock style, not one-BUT THREE Progs turned up at once. I had to restrain myself to reading two and leaving the third for later, less my thrill factor overload. Though I 'll miss my weekly outings to the newsagents [so long ago], I've got 2000AD to look forward to every week instead. The first Prog Cover art I recieved as a subscriber was by P J Holden who had drawn a lone monkey on a Phone or Telly Mast. It said a lot about these isolated times, but with my weekly sub of thrill-power to look forward too, I just might make it out of this mess the unhinged side of sanity.

Congrats on your epic achievement Funt. On a slightly less happy note, somebody on Facebook was offering to do quick sketches of any 'fandom.' When I sent a Judge Dredd request, he admitted he had no idea who that character was, neither the film nor comic versions. Perhaps I should have asked for Sonic the Hedgehog instead.

Well, here's the Lancet a Medical journal that sites China, Wuhan City as the likely source of the COVID-19 Outbreak.

No mention of bats at all in that article...

Here is the Science Daily that reports Bats may have been the host animals of the disease, but some intermediate host either Pangolians or some civets creature were other possible candidates for transmission. I read there were bushmeat markets involved that sold various animals as food.

I suspect the current crisis, once over, will do nothing but harden the pro-nationalist message that is shaping the world. Self-Isolation will encourage national isolation since it is easy to say, and accurate, that globalisation helped in the spread of the disease. A virus from China that originated in Bats found the perfect host, human beings and its incubation period allowed it to flourish far beyond its natural habitat aided by Air Travel. Even in Europe, borders appeared, and that will inevitably lead to questions about the open border policy, ones that favour local or national control. Coronavirus is another nail in the coffin of the globalised world, and trust in others may prove misguided with panic buying leading to stores having to limit the amount people could take with them. It's going to be a very different world after all this, a less trusting one, despite the apparent goodwill of many. Trade will continue pretty much unaffected, but personal travel may be far more restricted than before COVID-19 struck.

Cuba, eh? Welcome back to Blighty, you Communist Devil Worshipper! Someone had to say it, and who better than a hard-bitten reactionary like myself. I've read the Daily express, you know, and I only fainted once. So welcome back, Proudhuff, too...er, lockdown, queuing, general misery.

Artists Tim White, renowned known for his Science Fiction Cover Art has died. His Covers for HP Lovecraft's books were amongst the most astounding I 'd ever seen, and his superb realistic art style will be a pleasure to view even knowing Tim is no longer with us. The link seems a bit iffy but clicks on the bit about Tim White artists.
