With my left hand free and I’m on TV
(Getting the lyrics wrong makes Junior very cross)
What would you do with a squillion dollars?
Imagine a bath full of Kryptonian Shagg Juice. Drifting Gotham’s corners in the ride Batman turned down becaude the mileage was bad. Wearing a power ring jot because you have great willpower, but because you have great ca$h and that’s a lot more cool.
THESE are the questions asked towards the end of this you-might-just-die epicisode of Silence #216
I honestly can’t even. We start I think with a good review from Gary of the new Loganverine movie. He has much feels about the film and it is lovely.
The spoilers in his review actually make the boy bobsy a little upset so be careful out there.
Evench our critiqueonauts enter the Reviewniverse, where they review a lot of comics including Crime Destroyer (a very very good comic), Champions, Hawkeye, America, Royal City, Extremity, Savage Things, CIABatman, Cinema Purgatorio, and possibly some other stuff. I’ve forgotten. No, really I actually think that’s it. It’s a long one. The CIA Batman bit is great and we nearly nearly solve all the world’s problems by distributing Bruce Wayne’s cash. It’s great, we nearly sort it all out but playtime endeth and dinner calls.
Byeee! Love you xxx

GUNBOATS FLOAT LIKE CEMETERIES, INSIDE YOUR GUITAR
Gary Lactus & The Beast Must Die in a dance off that you just won’t believe! Throwing shapes that could change the fabric of space and reality! It’s time to step up to the streets, in 3D, in full effect! Those boys were thrown out of home when they were 15 and they been dancing ever since! Nobody puts SILENCE! in the corner! NOBODY!!! (and break)

<ITEM> Sponsorship? Check. Ramblocious ramblings? Check. A Kickstarter campaign worth your time? Check. Earth-Pig update? Check.
<ITEM> And then we’re hard into the Reviewniverse like a couple of bouncing bombc skipping across the 4-colour fjords. Looking at Batman: Rebirth, DC Rebirth, Superman: Rebirth, and DC Afterbirth. Plus! Civil War 2, Spiderwoman, Stray Bullets, Cinema Purgatorio, Stuart Gordon’s From Beyond, Papergirls and more, more, more (how do you like me?)

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!
