Silence children, silence. I hear a whisper ‘pon the leaves and a mist has descended. WHO COMES TO TROUBLE OUR CAMPFIRE?!

Why, ’tis Mister Merry and his sack full of pranks! Open your sack Mister Merry, let us all benefit from its bounty!

But what is this!? Little crippled Froomashoom, you shall have your comics wish! It is a bumper to bumper edition of SILENCE! Now we shall truly make merry!

That’s right, Gorbarek the weepy, this sack contains all the four colour nourishment you will ever require as Gary Lactus and Lord Nuneaton Savage expound upon many an inky truth. From The Wildstorm to Transmetropolitan; Cursewords, The Visitor and why He Stayed, Tank Girl Gold, Storming Heaven, Batman and the 2000AD 40th Anniversary Special. Ho, but this is joy indeed! There is a SILENCE! The Film Has Started, with Savage expanding and expanding on the subject of Anna Billison’s The Love Witch, oh sires! There shall be merriment in these hills afore long!

But, hark… what is that in the shadows? There, by the babbling brook, do you see? Snuffling and slipping between sight.

EGAD! ‘Tis The Beast Must Die!

And he has… a strange new familiar…

    I salute TBMD’s decision to prioritise actual babies over babymen.

    Paul Grist’s most commercial work IIRC was some stuff for a Torchwood/Doctor Who comic as well as a few backups etc in various Batman & Superman comics. Get the impression that his creator owned stuff just doesn’t make enough money which is a damn shame because it is sweet.

    Savage’s comment about the perils of creating any art digitally is bang on the money – when the only commodity you’re spending is your own time it’s incredibly easy to waste it looking for perfection, whereas the need to consider the cost of paint, ink, brushes & paper or studio time does tend to focus the mind.

    Looking forward to Logan this weekend too, reviews look good & may be Fox have finally realised that a bloke with knives on his hands really needs to actually cut people up.

    The Love Witch looks amazing. Granted I do have a soft spot for trashy 60s Cinema, but still.. Now somebody bring back Diabolik or Barbarella!

    Congratulations to the Beasties.

    Wolcome to the world Mini Beast!
    Yep, your memory did not deceive you Mr Lactus! The first Paul Grist story I ever read was a much hyped ‘socially relevant’ story set in a prison written by Mark Millar. I remember really disliking the weird art to begin with but it quickly grew on me despite the boring story about which I remember nothing. Hellboy sounds a terrific fit for him!

  8. Gary Lactus Says:

    Yesssss!!!!! (I’m always a bit too happy when my brain works)

  9. Maid of Nails Says:

    Can’t wait for the day when Junior Bobzone and Mini-Beast start SILENCE!: The Next Generation.

  10. The Beast Must Die Says:

    SILENCE! The Saga Of The Super-Daughters

    Congraxulak on becoming a dad, Beast!

    Aw just a heartwarming episode of Silence! in general, this one
