“I say” said Bunty, as she shone her torch at the corpse. Maggots writhed beneath the beam. “What a jolly disgusting mess!”

“Yes,” I agreed “utterly rum!”

“Nanny must have slipped and fallen down the cellar steps. Look at the strange angle of her head!” Bunty wrinkled her nose in disgust. ” I suppose this rather explains the smell coming through the floorboards”.

“Rather!” I trilled. “And I suppose that this means we should call the police too?”

Bunty shot me a crafty look. “Well…we could. Or we could see what Nanny tastes like?”

    Confession: I goodied, like, all over 1/3 of Ben Affleck: You Won’t Like Me When I’m Crossfit.

    Away I stumble, completed drenched in shame like the Stridulum ep! Shame is the crisco of emotion.

    Agree with the TBMD that 2000 AD isn’t very exciting just now. It always feels a bit flat when there’s not a story by Mills, Grant or Wagner in there. Even though Pat Mills in particular can veer between great and crap, there’s something comforting about their presence. Although I am quite enjoying Gordon Rennie’s well researched Aquila.

    I think it’s very impressive that Gary Lactus has promised to carefully re-edit all the old Silence! episodes with each episode number’s relevance to the wonderful world of comics. I will of course listen to every episode again to hear this audio gold, but what about putting them into a Silence numerology Patreon special for those other slightly less dedicated Silence! listeners out there?

    Surely it can only be a matter of time before the Ultraverse Prime movie adaptation?

    Lovely work sirs.

    My other half is eager to watch BatvSups, me, not so much. Someone offered me a ticket to that Leicester Square premier thing, but I’d just got back from a trip and was pretty knackered and didn’t really fancy it anyway. My loss.

    That Prime tune is pure gold.
