So when Prof Bear says a film is "objectively good" or "objectively bad" I normally assume he is being funny with the use of the term. But now I'm not so sure...

The Prof is obviously - objectively, even - the exception to all such considerations.  His observations have the status of FACT.  No-one could suffer through the kinds of media he consumes without his critical faculties being honed and purified in the white-hot flame of truth.

Does this mean I have to reappraise Batman & Robin?

I'm absolutely loving these, but can't help but think that some are missing a second page!
(Not a criticism - I just want more  ;))

I've really warmed to TPM over the last decade or so.
Sometimes you have to admit to yourself that Star Wars should only be taken at face value, as a daft spectacle and nothing more. TPM delivers in spades, even if it's worst parts (the opening crawl, the focus on Jar-Jar*..) make me shudder a little.

In hindsight, the good stuff more than makes up for it. A heroic failure indeed.

*I've really no problem with Jar-Jar per se, just wish he was given a meatier role than the annoying comic relief...

Hadn't you heard? America Jara sent a droid of herself to the Statue of Liberty, and has been working in the Cursed Earth to send an army of Bennett Beeny invisible ninja clones to fight the judges in a forthcoming action packed Garth (Sleez n Ryder, Time Flies) Ennis adventure.

FTFY  ;)

Winwood and Cord didn't actually die. Or, being Indigo Prime operatives, they were dead already.

True, but much like Chopper in Song of the Surfer, the end of Killing Time is infinitely better if they do, as they appear to, Cease to Be.

What he said.  I recently re-read that Garth Ennis Chopper resurrection strip in the Megazine, and while it was fairly entertaining (if surprisingly smutty for the time), I would gladly exchange it for the memory of Chopper dying the absolutely monumental death that John and Colin gave him.

I'm wayyy behind in progs.  I've only read the first Hershey episode so I shouldn't judge, but I have to say I'm very saddened to see yet another poignant and unforgettable McNeil-illustrated death being reversed.

Don't forget Johnny Alpha!  ;)
Just America and Bennet Beeny left to bring back now...  :o

Personally, I think we've had more than enough of the nostalgia thrills in this collection.
I'd prefer the extension to stick to Rebellion/Matt Smith era stuff.

Film & TV / Re: 'Fear the walking dead' - Whats the verdict so far?

Just watch Day of the Dead, then move on. Nothing from the Walking Dead, or it's spin offs, get anywhere near close.

We all know Buttonman wins...
Maybe re-title this as 'Ultimate 3rd place after Wagner & Watson'?*

*Y'know... Wagner & Watson has a real ring to it. A private detective double-act from the mid sixties, who specialise in various arcane.... um... things.

You get the gist!

Arthur Wyatt, no contest.

Ah, this is a tough one. On the one hand, Peter Hogan wrote Strontium Dogs, and as many have said he was a light in the dark of the era. I also really like David Baillie too - he's a heck of a writer and deserves his place in the comp.

On balance, I'm going with Hogan.

Hogan for me too, for all the reasons stated above.

McConville for me.
This may be because I love watching (reading?) writers and artists improve as they go on, and good as he is I can see Rory moving onto bigger and better things.

MacManus without a shadow of a doubt.

Not gonna lie - I see these two as equal writers, but Steve MacManus has one of the best ASMR voices I've ever fallen asleep to, so Steve wins.

I fully appreciate that this makes my vote pointless.... ;)

Bish-Op for me.
His Dredd novels are great, his continuation of Fiends is great, Space Girls was..... in the prog, I guess  :-\

But still Bish-Op for me  :thumbsup:
