Rah though, I was just reading Tom Strong: v. 1 on the train, and it struck me that Batman RIP might well be deeply in its debt. Scrub that. Batman RIPIS deeply in its debt. I am referring specifically to issue 6, Dead Man’s Hand, wherein Paul Saveen returns from the dead, resplendent in pointed domino mask and alluding to be The Devil, to “destroy” our science hero.
Moore doesn’t like GM does he? I remember reading an interview in which he dismissed him as “derivative,” and there was that column GM wrote cussing From Hell all those years back… They both claim to have come up with the “worms in space concept,” although does having access to idea space mean you never come up with anything, you just conduit it?
I can do it.
Icon Do it.
Hmm. There’s a mixtape title in there somewhere.
Rah though, can you tell from that dodgy scan that my copy of Tom Strong: v. 1 is soaking wet after having a disatser with a bottle of water AND a bottle of shower gel in my trusty leather Puma sports bag? HOW SUCKY IS THAT? So so sucky. It is, however, a testament to the quality of the print job that the thing remains so very legible.
That reminds me. People keep asking me what I want for Christmas, so I have made a handy Amazon Wishlist, since I pretty much just want comics. LOADS OF COMICS that I can read in bed. My .cbr days are over since my laptop died. HO HO HO!
Swear down, Pacewon is one of the most slepton emcees EVER. He was always nice. And this joint knocks, so it seems he’s still got it. Rah rah RAH! Dude was a big influence on me, believe it or not. That The Bricks shit was my joint for a year back on 00.
Six senior doctors have begun legal action to force a new inquest into the death of Dr David Kelly, the scientist who died days after being exposed as the source of a controversial BBC story on the Iraq war.
Some suspect that Dr Kelly, 59, was murdered shortly after it was revealed that he was the source of a BBC story which alleged that evidence against Iraq had been “sexed up” by the Government in order to justify the 2003 invasion.
The body of Dr Kelly, who was a UN weapons inspector, was found more than six years ago in woods near his Oxfordshire home after he went out for a walk. His wrist had been slashed. He also had painkillers in his bloodstream, although not at a lethal level.
At the time of his death, Dr Kelly was under pressure because it had emerged that he had provided confidential information for the BBC story.
However, in a 13-page dossier prepared as the basis for the legal action, the doctors argue that the bleeding from Dr Kelly’s ulnar artery in his left wrist is “highly unlikely” to have caused his death. They say a number of studies have shown that it is unusual for a patient to die from a single deep cut to the wrist.
About goddamn time. I wonder when Robin Cook’s mysterious “fall down a hole” in Scotland’s gonna get properly looked into?
