SILENCE! #171

January 13th, 2016

 
IN THE EVENT THAT THIS FANTASTIC VOYAGE SHOULD COME TO AN END

(Bowie image courtesy of the wonderful Danny Noble. Go see her stuff here.)

Bit too sad to write a blurb, so I’ll let Danny’s pic do the heavy lifting…

But hark! There’s still a wondrous pod for you to embiggen your mind, body and soul with. When all else fails there will always be SILENCE!

<ITEM> Gary Lactus & The Beast Must Die get down to it, whistling through the admin like the 7:39 from Chingford to Liverpool Street.

<ITEM> As is right and proper there’s some proper Sadmin, with news that David Bowie has left the cosmos. The boys try and provide a eulogy and inevitably come up short.

<ITEM> Alan Sane and Pigs Heads? Who could we be talking about?

<ITEM> The Reviewniverse is entered into with a rather less touching Bowie tribute, but there’s scant recompense in the form of a discussion of Rob Liefield’s Deadpool, New Mutants and male pattern balding superheroes. Plus! Vision, Unfollow, Wildcats, Travis Charest, Dr Strange, Thrill Power Overload, Early 2000AD, Grendel Tales, Paul Grist, A1, Carry On Avenging, Reflections: An Oral History of Twin Peaks, Papergirls, A-Force and a hot mess more.

<ITEM> YOu ArE N ItEM!!

So how many relaunches is this for Jack Staff now?

So I had a busy, shitty day yesterday and needed to unwind in the pub with some comics before heading home. This is the fruits of that labour, so forgive me if they seem a bit…slapdash.
