WITH DELIVERY SMOOTH LIKE WATER FROM A FOUNTAIN, THAT’S WHY I CAN MOVE ANY MOUNTAIN
Welcome to the SILENCE! solo dining experience. For starters we have a delicious shame of kale served in a jam jar and balanced on a faucet. You’ll hate it. Fir main we have a full miniaturized roast served on a teflon sphere. For desert, well no one’s ever stayed that long to be honest. We’ve stopped bothering with desert.
Tuck in to a succulent new SILENCE! Well, it’s not that succulent. The Beast Must Die isn’t around so Gary Lactus and the Galacticats handle this one on their own. There’s some admin where we find out at last what the opposite of a crow is and some news of a Dan White original art sale! Among the sponsershippery there’s talk of buying Fraser Geesin comics too.
Then it’s off to the reviewniverse where Gary and the Galacticats talk up A.D. After Death, All-New X-Men Annual, The Ultimates 2, Gennedy Tartakovsky’s CAGE!, Sixpack and Dogwelder, Angry Youth Comix and passing mentions of Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur and Civil War 2. Let’s be honest, Gary does most of the talking, the Galacticats aren’t that committed to podcasting.
A real life mountain tale concludes the pod and then you’re free again.

Look, I know that was below par, but sometimes…sometimes I wonder if there isn’t more to life than writing podcast blurbs y’know? For so many years I thought I’d found my true vocation, my life’s work but now…well. Now I wonder – what else is out there? What am I missing? What could I have been?
<ITEM> Bit of the old ‘how’s yer admin’? Don’t mind if I do sir! I’ll have a dash of Sponsorship with it if I might be so bold? And maybe a sprinkle of self-promotion to sweeten the deal.

Then it’s Patsy Walker Hellcat, Rachel Pollack’s Doom Patrol, and the Vertigo Visions one-shots Dr Occult and The Phantom Stranger.
