WALKING ON THE SIDEWALK, HOTTER THAN A MATCH-HEAD
They took his family…they took his kids… they took his shoes… and his dinner. And they punched his dog. And slapped his goldfish. Then they finally took one thing too far. They took his podcast. Now, this cop-on-the edge, who doesn’t play by the rules, is telling his uptight boss where to get off, and doing things his way. With the help of his two best friends Right Fist and Left Fist, and his two older friend who he has a slightly strained relationship with, his Boots. He’s taking the law between his teeth and riding it like a pony with a lovely shiny mane. He’s come for justice and he’s doing it his way. He’s doing it…
<ITEM> The two! The two are back! After being marooned across opposite sides of the mirror-verse Gary Lactus & The Beast Must Die are here to bring you a classic slice of podcastery, talking up a comics sized, fully painted, foil-enhanced storm.
<ITEM> Sponsorship? Sure why not – I’ll take two! Plus a bit of admin on the side.
<ITEM> Full steam ahead! We’re heading for the Reviewniverse hand in hand, our larynx’s humming in harmony. The Beast talks up Tillie Walden’s The End Of Summer, then it’s on to Civil War II, Astonishing Ant Man, Future Quest, Josh Brayer’s Theth, Raymond Pettibon, Tank Girl: Two Girls One Tank, and so very much mooooooore!
<ITEM> A bit of Backmin, with more info on The Earth-Pig Diaries and then we scoot off into the night. Kisses!

SHAKE IT UP IS ALL THAT WE KNOW, USING BODIES UP AS WE GO
Behold!The podcast of TWO WORLDS! Yes tasty little mortals it’s an episode of SILENCE! where our two star-crossed (comics) lovers are separated by the triple threats of time, space and curry! On one world we have Gary Lactus, trapped in a hell of his own making – on another world The Beast Must Die is trapped in a heaven of his own partaking! That’s right, it’s two solo-casts sellotaped together to make one shambling hybrid giant podcast. So let’s double down for a two-way switcheroo and get ready for the Crisis on Two Podcasts!
<ITEM> Gary tackles some sadmin with news of Darwyn Cooke’s passing. But there’s some gladmin with tales of Alan Moore in the flesh. Then he mournfully slides into the Reviewniverse for All New Different Avengers, The Ultimates, The Vision and Batman.
<ITEM> The world flip reverses and we’re into…
<ITEM> The Beast takes over, and there’s more sadmin for Darwyn Cooke. Then it’s a jaunty polevault into The Reviewniverse to take a squirt at Grant Morrison’s Heavy Metal, Criminal 10th Anniversary special, DKIII, the end of Huck, The Vision, and Beasts of Burden.
<ITEM>and what, pray tell, is The Earth Pig Chronicles? Find out here.
So prepare to have your mind sliced up like a cheesecake and served up to your eyes…It’s SILENCE!

LET EM KNOW I’M LOOKING FOR A BIG FAT DOPE SACK WITH ENDS TO SPEND
Did you know that it’s Free Comic Book Life this life? Well it is: all comics are free in this life – and who’s to say about the next? – thanks to the generosity of Mr Stan Lee, an adorably uncley sort who invented the medium we call comic books and all the superheroes so beloved of your local multiplex.
But in a life of free comics, comics unchained and in flight, comics whose parole board hearing finally came through, comics who finally managed to dig that hole and jump over the fence, comics comics fripping everywhere, in a life full of free comics how are you going to pick the right ones to read?
Don’t worry your pretty little head or your ugly old mug about it, because Gary and the Beast, except not the Beast, are here again to tell you what the good comics are in another roar-ripping episode of SILENCE!
<ITEM> Adminism at the top of the show: sponsorshizzle and eff see bee dee news.
<ITEM> Then in probably the best thing to have happened to this podcast in a call code for an LA homicide of shows, Mr Carter’s Math(s) Class use their angelic tones to in unison open The Reviewniverse – an imaginary place – aren’t they all hmm, hmm? – where comics are talked of. Gary and NotBeast bash their heads on Tom Gauld’s Mooncop, Alan Moore’s Cinema Purgatorio, Becky Cloonan’s The Punisher, Kaare Kyle Andrews’ Renato Jones The One%, Black Mask’s 4 Kids Walk Into A Bank, the telly license payer’s Dr Who and perhaps not much more.
<ITEM> Oh and Captain America: Civil War – we talked about that in there too but I can’t remember if it was before the comics or not.
<ITEM> Sorry! Thanks love you!
