Is there anyone receiving this signal?

We seem to have become unshackled from time and space…we no longer no where we are, where we should be or where we are.  We are unmoored, adrift. Time looks like an inside out rubiks cube. I can see your beginning and my end, and they are. The. Same. Thing.

Help us. Something has happened. We’re sending this….this podcast out there into the no-space to try and cast an anchor on a point in time, any time to try and get home. Please. This is a message. A message. In a bottle.

Is anyone there? Or is it just…


<ITEM> Whelp, we’re back and we’ve even changed our scanties. Motherbox would be proud. It’s time for a brand new encounter with Gary Lactus & The Beast Must Die bringing you the world’s most regular podcast, SILENCE!

<ITEM> So much to say, so much to do. Sponsorship, admin – all present and correct SAH! There’s probably some other nonsense in here too, but I certainly won’t be listening to the pdcast to find out!

<ITEM> The yawning maw of the Reviewniverse is prosed open by the plucky pair, and inside is lurking … COMICS, just the way you ordered them – out of date, stale and irrelevant! DIscussed are League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Tempest, 2000AD Sci-Fi special, Captain America, Marvel Rising, Jemm Son of Saturn, Vertigo Pop: Tokyo, Squirrel Girl & Ms Marvel, New Lieutenents of Metal, Oblivion Song, Die Die Die!, Mick Garris as the Zelig of Horror, Terminator: Secondary Objectives and Terminator: Enemy Within. Phew!

<ITEM> Time for a couple of I Recky-mends and then it’s tearful, cheerful, fearful goodbyes! Lap it up you suckers!

    Glad you’re back. You have been missed.

    Can understand why Gary found “The Roses of Berlin” hard work. What I find with “ver League” is to give it a read, once through, and, if you don’t get it, then read it again with Jess Nevins’ excellent annotations to gain the finer points.

    However, it does, sometimes, feel like homework. I am ashamed I have never made it all the way through “Promethea” (yet) for the same reason. This goes for the same for Chris Ware’s “Building Stories” which stands gathering an inch of stoor in my house because (although, it is probably a masterpiece) it seems like too much hard work compared to Dan Slott’s “Amazing Spider-Man” (which was a lot of meretricious shit).

    Is there anyone else out there who has a “Claim to Shame” when it comes to their comics reading? (Probably you’ll all discuss it on “Tweetle” or “Snapagram” or “MyFace” or “Tweetle (again) – When will folk realise that “comments” is where it is @ ?).

    Never finished Promethea either. I liked it when it had more fighting and monsters in it. Once the magical lecture began I tuned out like the oaf I am.
