Saturday shorts

Doomlord is here....

Take me to your wardrobe

Yes, the disintergrating collection of old Eagles I bought on e-bay has arrived. It smells of damp attics and my cat seems determined to piss on it, but I'm happy its here.

The first issue I pulled out had this on the cover...

A teaser that nearly made me puke with excitement.

A little bit of happy vomit did indeed come up when I turned the page to see this...

Only British people will appreciate the sheer wonder of this picture, which is a great shame for the rest of the world.

I'm running late with my comic reviews this week. I did head over to Orbital on Thursday to pick up my weekly fix, but forgot that on a bank holiday week comics arrive late. That meant I had to wait until today to buy my books.

It was worth the wait for a fine selection which includes Twomorrow Publishing's history of primates in American comics Comics gone Ape and a quite spectacular second issue of Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four.

While browsing the racks for those goodies I was heartened to see that the first issue of Omega Flight has gone to a second print. Apparently I'm not the only person out there who wants a decent Alpha Flight series.

I use a tool called statcounter on this site which allows me to keep track of the pitifully small number of hits I get.

I know from this device that there are three people who read LLC on a daily basis. One of those people is Ben, who only looks out of kindness, but I have absoloutely no idea who the other two are.

So to the folk in Canada and the USA who stop off here every day, I say REVEAL YOURSELVES (unless one of you is my mum of course, in which case I request that you leave a comment pretending you're someone cool like Stan Lee or the Red Skull).
