JANE SUCK DIED IN ’77, I THINK ABOUT HER ALL THE TIME

I don’t know about you but I’ve had enough of it. Enough I tell you. I won’t stand for it a second more. NOT ONE SECOND. It’s an outrage. AN OUTRAGE. The imposition…the nerve of it. It’s too much. Far too much. Too far. A BRIDGE too far. It’s beyond the pail. I’m disgusted to have even been asked that. DISGUSTED!
What was it we were talking about again? Oh that’s right…SILENCE!
<ITEM> A brand new podcast slips into the world mewling and in need of the nourishment of your ears. The Beast Must Die & Gary Lactus are joined by Bobsy to both raise and lower the tone
<ITEM> Tales of Karaoke, Sponsorship, a moment of Cerebus, and the usual high quality time-wasting? All here.
<ITEM> The Reviewniverse beckons gentle stranger leading you on a merry tango into it’s sequential kaleidoscope… the boys discuss Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Black Panther, The Black Panthers, Providence, Prophet: Earth War, Black Widow, Fraction & Aja’s Hawkeye and Mark Millar’s new elevator pitch Empress.
<ITEM> So stick that in your pipe and smoke it.

SILENCE! #180

IN THE SEA THERE IS A WHALE WITHOUT ANY EYES

Hello?  Yes, speaking. Why thank you, I quite agree.  And you rang just to tell me that?  Uhuh, go on… Right… Okay… Okay, can I just stop you there.  There’s no way I’d sell them.  They might be absolute dolts but I love them.  No!  The Galcticats are not for sale, GOOD DAY!

Damp mishaps, cheek and sponsorship occupy the admin section of the edition of SILENCE! Once in the Reviewniverse we cover Monstress, Head Lopper, Doctor Strange, Hellcat!, The Infinity Entity, Ian Finity, Jim Starlian, Alian Davis and Batman Vs Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  Once we’re out there’s a bit of talk about Cerebus and the enduring cultural tyranny of Queen.

LET’S GO!

Cerebus: Church & State Vol II

December 17th, 2014

(continued)
like reading a newspaper, and it feels like getting reports from a real other world, one which has its own history, politics, and theology.

In later storylines, this distinction between Estarcion and the real world is broken down, to the point that one book is almost entirely given over to a discussion of the Bible, and Sim seems to believe, at least somewhat, that he was writing the prehistory of our own world — but so did Tolkien, and while Sim’s fictional world is nowhere near as fully thought-out as Tolkien’s, it was, for a while, possible to believe that it was, if only in Sim’s mind.
Trigger warning: this piece discusses rape.
