Hello?  Yes, speaking. Why thank you, I quite agree.  And you rang just to tell me that?  Uhuh, go on… Right… Okay… Okay, can I just stop you there.  There’s no way I’d sell them.  They might be absolute dolts but I love them.  No!  The Galcticats are not for sale, GOOD DAY!

Damp mishaps, cheek and sponsorship occupy the admin section of the edition of SILENCE! Once in the Reviewniverse we cover Monstress, Head Lopper, Doctor Strange, Hellcat!, The Infinity Entity, Ian Finity, Jim Starlian, Alian Davis and Batman Vs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  Once we’re out there’s a bit of talk about Cerebus and the enduring cultural tyranny of Queen.

    The growing cat influence is ruining this podcast, like what do cats know about comics anyway yeah? I mean it’s just disproportionate, sure we all know of the famous cats working in comics but like they are the exception rather than the rule, right? Like I’m not a hater, my mother was a cat, a British Shorthair named Princess Cissy, but all the comics she’s done have been wack. Like really self indulgent reflections on tinned tuna.

    Silence! continues to be my favourite Cats, Spices and Toilet-Talk Magazine Lifestyle Show!

    (I am not being sarcastic, I enjoy all those bits)

    I am also glad the spaceship’s back in orbit, chewed venetian blinds n’all.

    I briefly had Spawn versus Batman, but gave it to a charity shop. I cannot remember if it was good/shit or just shit/shit.

    Similarly, but less ‘big name’, has anyone read the Chichester/McDaniel Daredy/Batman crossover? It’s kinda Millery but I remember it being almost unreadable.


    Proxy Music is a great name for a Roxy Music tribute band.

    Loved having Nails. I say swatch off to “David.”

  5. Winty Says:

    I liked it. It was good. I miss Bobsy. Fuck “Social Media”. Keep on keeping on! P.s. More Admin please!

  6. Maid of Nails Says:

    Google Images tell me that Spawn vs Batman was a thoughtful and sensitive work

  7. Thrills Says:

    Aw god I wish I’d kept that comic now, that looks incredible. I mustn’t have been ready for the Mature Themes!

  8. The Beast Must Die Says:

    Kind of transfixed by Spawn’s skull cod piece

    Top episode! I thoroughly enjoyed all that wanton destruction going on in the background courtesey of those adorable, furry, little harbingers of the apocalypse…

    Early period Roxy Music were the coolest and weirdest looking band ever. Everyone always talks about how 2000 AD was heavily influenced by punk but I’d say Roxy music were at least as big an influence. Watching this version of Remake / Remodel and you realise that a) the band look like they’re drawn by Brendan McCarthy and b) they all look like residents of Mega City 1

    “I’m getting the living crap beat out of me. And I feel alive!”
    - Spawn, getting the living crap beat out of him by Batman in Moench/Dixon/Grant/Janson “Batman Spawn War Devil. Never read the Mcfarlane/Miller but this “War Devil” is real real bad but real real good.

  11. John Bishop Says:

    I think I liked the Spawn/Batman one, not the Batman/Spawn one. Yes there were two of the bastards- one published by DC and one by Image (I believe). The Spawn Batman one was actually sort of in Spawn continuity, the final panel being something like ‘Let’s bury the hatchet’, then Spawn getting a batarang in the face. How we laughed. Then Spawn #19 or something referenced it by having some of his homeless mates sewing his face up with a shoelace.
