We like the winter it brings us closer together
ITEM Its chilly out here, the lonely unknown beeps moaning from the metal leviathans moored in the space harbour. The space fog hugs the floor, and the space train is minutes off yet. You write a podcast blurb.
ITEM Hello! Welcome to Silence a million. It might be the most important Silence yet:
ITEM The Beast Must Die is a-way, doing … not very much at all, at all. You’ll soon see. So in his place moody young Bobsy joins Gary up there on the space ship in space, come to talk about comics.
ITEM it’s the RETURN OF SILENCE! SONGS with Gary’s offering, Civil War 3 The Musical
ITEM The Space God and his Paranoiac Pal whip through a little bit of admin and sponsorshizzle before getting into the meats, discussing not-a-comics Lazarus and Green Room and then are-a-comics Old Skool Avengers, USAvengers, Cave Carson has a Cybernertic Eye, Monsters Unleashead, Knightsend, Black Hammer annual, Curse Words, Ultimates 2, Wolverine and perhaps some others.
ITEM In a brand new segment called Book Look bobsy discovers a picture with no words (!!!!!????) called Piss Cameron. He likes it, it is good.

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!

OHHHHH! THE WIDE MISSOURRI!
<ITEM> Roll up, roll up, roll up your trouserlegs and get your baps out for Baphomet for Lo! and Yea Verily! is tonight the long awaited moment of The Beast Must Die’s initiation into The Grayt Lodge (Scorch Rite) of Freely Accepted special-time Masonry!
<ITEM> This means in effect much of Silence!’s easy banter, welcome charm and aural chemistry from its well practiced hosts is Alas! gone for the evening and Gary’s cosmic couch aka The Spaceship is filled by just bobsy instead.
<ITEM> Undaunted, in fact lubricated by some of England’s Cheapest, Most Ingredienty Pilsner the intrepid pair do a bit of (r)admin where they talk about a very good comic shop and a very funny comedy show what you can see this month
<ITEM> and then they enter the Reviewniverse where among the burping, digressions and ill informed pomposterousness they review Secret Wars 0 – Freebie Edition, Bitch Planet 4, Johnny Viable And Other Terse Stories 1, Pisces 1, SFX Vertigo Pop something, Secret Avengers 15, Fantastic Fourskin #645, Daredevil 15, Pastaways 2, Batman 40, Convergence 4, New Avengers Ultron Thing 1, War Stories 8, and Reads 1 & 2 (which are the best two winners of most by very)
<ITEM>Even homos perfectuses need a break from their angelic geometry lessons, so at a certain point La Bete Doit Mourir pops in and souls out for a quick look at Comic Event Multiversity ish 2. Let us know what you thought of said floppyback in the comments below! Yoink!
