Ah, Doktor Sleepless! From that golden period c.2007 when he released a new thing every month and then got bored of it about six months later. According to Wikipedia he's managed 13 issues in 12 years. Fuck's sake.

What was the gimmick with that one? It had its own Wikipedia or something?

Mediawiki or summat....?

Thanks so much for the Megg and Mogg recommendation. I'm on holiday at the moment, and I nearly devoured the first volume in one sitting. It's great stuff!

I'm kinda surprised more of us here don't read it as it strikes me as very C&B in its tone and concerns!

Edit: And Megahex is presently £3.99 on Comixology, so give it a look.
Just grabbed it. Looking forward to reading this later. Thanks!

It flits from painfully funny to just painful, and I don't mean "so bad it's painful". It just hurts to read sometimes.

I feel bad for poor old Owl

I'm up to the third book (yep, I'm caning it), and it never fails to amaze me just how bleak(er) it can get.

Werewolf Jones is a great character. He's like Super Hans turned up to the highest setting possible

It's brilliant. Like the most disgusting soap opera ever made

I think my favourite one is the single-pager where Megg and Mogg drop acid right before Werewolf Jones comes in screaming about them helping find his buttplug

I'd say he's ramped this up for Bad Gateway. For what it's worth, I'd say Booger's the character I feel more sympathy for - always in the background trying hard to be a decent sort of fuck-up, but with only the likes of WWJ and Megg for support. Owl's long-suffering, but like Mark Corrigan he's a wretch in his own way.

My copy of Gateway hasn't arrived yet, but I'm excited and a little scared.  This'll be the first one I've read properly, in book form, before I read scans online (sorry, Simon... I bought all your books brand new on the strength of those scans, so I hope you got my money!)

Mine arrived today. I've read half of it and am now giving myself a break from it to do some XR stuff.

Includes an amazing, laudation-worthy return of the Hamburgler mask you'll be pleased to know!

Owl completely fucked up, being pushed through a Drive-Thru in a shopping cart with his cock out.
I almost died.
It's SO grim, but SO good.

But when Owl gets anything good in his life, i.e. a dream job or a holiday or a girlfriend, the others find a way to cack all over it. His sad little face. And that's not even bringing up what they all did to him when they got him alone in that room, in the first book

For some reason, Megg's unshaven legs always make me laff too. She is weirdly attractive though, so no wonder they all fancy her.

Werewolf Jones though. What a life

Comixology have already started a few sales on various titles. I swear they're gonna end me

He doesn't really care in the end though, does he? The twat.

Heh, probably not.

Rover Red Charlie is lovely stuff. Really enjoyed that. Cheers for recommending it

Anyone read 110 Percent? I bought it on a whim, and ended up really liking it. It's about these three middle-aged women who become obsessed with a popular boy band, and it soon puts a serious strain on their personal lives, and with each other

It has funny moments, but it's actually quite bleak in parts, and you end up feeling a bit sad for them. It's not amazing or anything, but well worth a butchers.

I've just started this. It seems to be an anthology loosely connected by the mysterious 'Ice Cream Man' and two FBI Agents (?). The first story was a bit *mweh*, the second was better.

The last ever LOEG by Moore and O’Neill is out.
It’s dense, as expected. Am slowly going through it.

Caution: It gets meta

Coo. What's Kimble's real name? PM me if that's not the kind of thing we should talk about on here.

Army Of Darkness / Bubba Ho-Tep - A shameless cash in which fails to understand what was so great about both films and is just tedious fight scenes 95% of the time.

Mars Attacks Popeye - Whereas this is actually surprisingly quite charming, a very simplistic but fun take on what might happen if the earth was ever invaded on Popeye's watch.

Thanks to whoever recommended the fall of deadworld thing, first bit of 2000 ad stuff ive checked out in about 25 years (dont really do comics much) - thoroughly enjoyed it, spectacularly fucked up indeed. Like ‘the road’ x HR Giger with lots of fun not so subtle real life allusions thrown in. The ageing biggy titbo conspiracist red neck grandad actually being on the money with his bizarre theories about weather control was a nice humorous touch, the dark humour throughout stops the whole thing just being an exercise in pointless grimness. Incredible artwork. And thanks to smbh for the nod to the free comic viewer. Bit skint.
