SILENCE! #315

IT’S LIKE A WHIRLPOOL AND IT NEVER ENDS

At last! It’s time for The Big Pivot! Welcome to the SILENCE! Sportscast! All the Action! All the balls! More kicks and hits than you could reasonably kick or hit! Who’s winning? YOU!

Unfortunately the sports chat gets somewhat derailed by talk about gigs and the 90s before Gary Lactus and The Beast Must Die get sucked into The Reviewniverse where they find Joe Wilkinson: My Autobiography, Elf Quest, Cerebus, Viz (Gary’s got a strip in it!) and Proustian comics in general.

Following that, there’s a lovely bit of SILENCE! (Because The Film’s Started) in which The Beast Must Die has seen The Flash.

All sport is finally forgotten as the hosts reckymend Comfort Blanket, Allan Quartermain and the Spear of Destiny (Jesus fucking Christ), Blood & Flesh: The Reel Life & Ghastly Death of Al Adamson and Gary just won’t stop going on about his Patreon. At this point in the blurb we usually say, “AND MORE!”.

Welcome back, Jolly Whackos, to The Mighty Crusaders Number Four!

KI-YIPPEE AND YAHOO, YES SIR!

For some time, as a treat for members of C-Unit, Dan and Fraser have been playing through the Starlight Adventures series of adventure game books for girls, published by Puffin in 1985. We have adventured our way all the way through Riddle of the runaway and are now on the third book, Island Of Secrets. Presented here in this special podcast, is the first five episodes which comprise book one in the series, Star Rider. If you like what you hear and would like to join C-Unit yourself, thereby gaining access to the SILENCE! archive, free comics and a wealth of other exclusive podcasts, then go to Patreon.com/silence and pledge a single unit of currency (or more if you want). Whether you do or not, get ready to go on a Starlight Adventure, enter the drama gymkhana and…learn about horses in… STAR RIDER

You wanna know about Mark Stafford, almost from birth until now? He’s the sort of guy that people say things like ”Mark Stafford is the greatest artist you’ve never heard of” about. Press play to hear Mark Stafford talk to a completely naked Gary Lactus about Ronald Searle, Empusa, The Comic Creators Guild, Brian Talbot, Cherubs, The Man Who Laughs, David Hine, Liphook, the strange tale of Magdalena Solis, The Bad Bad Place, Mark’s Emerald Helicopter of Success, the upcoming Salmonella Smorgasbord and why oh why can’t we all just call comic books and graphic novels Irresponsible Pictures instead. This is THE podcast for all of your Mark Stafford needs.

OVER MY SHOULDER, OLDER AND OLDER, THAT’S WHAT I TOLD YA, OVER AND OVER

Well, well, well if it isn’t Gary Lactus and The Beast Must Die crawling back on their knees, begging forgiveness for missing a week of the world’s otherwise most reliable podcast.  Angry hoards of ex listeners have verbally and physically assaulted the punctual pair, blaming them for all manner of important, missed appointments because they set their watches to SILENCE!’s famous regularity.

Thankfully, that’s all over now and the two men are back to perform that most incredible feat, talking about stuff.  Stuff like Small Press Day at Gosh, and people like Sean Azzopardi, Molly Stocks, Mark Stafford, Douglas Noble and Fraser Geesin and Dan Cox’s comic, Jeff.

Gareth Hopkinskickstarter, Explosive Sweet Freezer Razors gets a shout too.

Then it’s off to The Reviewniverse, with Counterfeit Girl, Geezer, John’s Worth and Marvel’s adaptation of Dune

Wrapping up, The Beast has watched The Boys and She Hulk and Gary has been listening to The Blindboy Podcast

There’s probably more that I’ve forgotten but you can find out what that is by listening… NOW!
