So I took a break and now I’m back! Like rickets! So here’s far more words than anyone sane would ever need to read about a two-issue comic Howard Victor Chaykin did in 2006. Because, that’s why. Just because. Also: because. Because.

“F*** you, Tarzan.” COMICS! Sometimes ‘Tis Pity She’s A Whore!

In which I aimlessly amble around Howard Victor Chaykin’s recent series ‘Midnight of the Soul’ and see what strikes my fancy. No, really, even more than usual, I just sort of prattle on rather aimlessly and hope some kind of coherent point emerges. It probably won’t, but as I haven’t written it yet we’ll have to find out together. Take my hand, fellow stranger in paradise! Take my hand…

“…Gimme A Circus Like This Anyday.” COMICS! Sometimes We’re In Like Flint!

John Kane

There’s a little bit of Dredd in this one, a smidgeon mayhap. However there is a whole lot of Carlos Ezquerra and he’s really making his computer colouring work in this one. Some real freaky skyscapes going on in the background of these panels. If you’re a Carlos Ezquerra fan you’ll probably want to pick this one up. Oh, looks like I started the review early, better put the rest under the jump. See ya, wouldn’t want to be ya!

“Death Among The Hors D’oeuvres.” COMICS! Sometimes It’s Tough, Tough Toys For Tough, Tough Boys!

John Kane

What would Thunderbirds be like in the world of Judge Dredd? My dog has no nose; why isn’t Robbie Morrison funny? What if the messiah was susceptible to weed killer?  What would be the absolute best name for a character in a very cold place? Can a gun be too big? And if war is so terrible why is it so good for John Wagner? All questions I’ll probably forget to answer in the latest jolly riverdance through the JUDGE DREDD MEGA COLLECTION.

There now follows a change to our scheduled programme. Settle back as our Argentinian chums Eduardo Risso and the late Carlos Trillo take us on a trip to the near future where everything is awful; simply awful. Just dreadful, darlings. Ugh. (Oh, And I realise Argentina isn’t in Europe but the book was originally published in Italy(?), which is in Europe so check and mate!)

“Sometimes I won. Mostly I lost. But you put the show on speed… I chew all they asses up. All them Grand Masters and them Europeans… with they government subsidies and whatnot to sit on they asses and play all day… they ain’t livin’in the world. Put the clock on ’em, put the heat on they backs, they break down. Put ’em in the park fishin’ for dollars, and they break.

That’s Bobby Fisher– some say he’s the greatest player to ever play the game. I never played him. All them patzers sittin’ around the park… waitin’ for him to go back there, like Jesus. Me, I don’t give a shit. Put the clock on that motherfucker… I’ll chew his ass up just like the rest of’em. Chew it right up.”

Samuel L. Jackson in FRESH, written by Boaz Yakin
