Maybe it's just because this site and MM&O are two sites I visit daily but I'm starting to think Simon is reading this thread:

Seems that all the people bored of WWJ antics are getting a shout out today.

And today we have Moggs crimes being listed out after I mention I had to remember what they were.

I'll only believe it if the next strip features fans of Anus King delusionally thinking that the cast are reading their forum posts.

To be fair Simon is a big fan of British comedy including much of Morris' work.

I was only teasin. I think someone posted a photo of his DVD shelf a few pages back, featuring quite a few deep cuts of the alternative comedy canon. To be honest, I'd be surprised if a fan of all those shows didn't end up stumbling across CaB at some point.

Indeed he did as a mere stripling. The forum was so virulently negative about Nathan Barley in the main, however (and Brooker successful) he stopped posting - we did get a momentary screenshot in an episode of Newswipe though, I recall!

Aw, that's a shame. I remember when Andrew Collins turned up and a bunch of people just started acting like a total cunt to him. That wasn't nice at all.

I approve of WWJ's hard swerve into Oz (the HBO series) territory.

Remember when it looked like it was going to wrap up with the election? What's the next natural end point - Christmas?

Ahhh... It's so great that it's picked up again.

This has been the most rewarding thing I've read all year.

Yeah that panel was great

Wonder if he's going to show Jones' trial or if it's dystopian enough they just chucked him in the state slammer and forgot about him

Should drag out it out for ten weeks of nothing but WWJ trial like the Tim Heidecker trial in On Cinema.

Maybe, but Mogg's worn that before in one of the comics - Megahex or One more year I think. Because Megg was sick of his face.

He wore it in another comic while having his affair with the chair. I want to say One More Year or Bad Gateway.

I don't remember an affair with a chair and I've read One More Year. So lets guess Bad Gateway.

(the context here is I bought Megahex, Amsterdam and On eMore Year in April and read them over a few days so they're all merged into one in my mind).

I bought and read Megahex and One More Year in quick succession. Which one should I get next, Amsterdam or Bad Gateway?

Amsterdam is funnier with loads of standalone comics, but Bad Gateway is more bleak single story focused. It's what you want out of Megg and Mogg really, both are good it's just how you want to tackle them. If you want to follow up Megahex, Bad Gateway is the direct sequel.

Get Amsterdam first, it takes place before Owl moves out at the end of Megahex. Bad Gateway advances the "story arc" such as it is, showing how Megg and Mogg are(n't) coping in the absence of their more capable, employed roommate.
