  THAT WAS PATROL, THIS IS THE WAR Listen, can you do me a favour? It would really help me out if you just imagined that there’s a really good blurb here. Something wry, funny and a bit surreal. Something to cause a smile to flicker across those cherry lips of yours? Becuase frankly I [...]

The Crisis Project: Issue Three

Mon, 12 Mar 2018 22:00:26 +0000

Sorry for the slight delay on getting this post out — we’ve been busy on here with the MINDLESS DECADE, and I was also busy getting my most recent book out while coping with chronic illness flare-ups. Anyway… Crisis on Infinite Earths issue three. By this point, we actually know very little about the threat, [...]

AND I STILL LOVE THE GIRL FROM BENNINGTON This is it. We’ve worked for so many years to get to this. Years squirrelled away in the lab. Years banging our heads against a brick wall. Years when it all seemed so utterly pointless. Great minds came and great minds went. Some cracked and crumbled [...]

Or “What’s A Bottie Beast?” – A Love Story Illogical Volume here, writing a wee introduction to an ULTIMATE CLASSIC! post by another Mindless because…. well, almost two years down the line, I’m still stuck on the Botswana’s Beast‘s last post on Multiversity, still trying to get a feel for what it’s doing, how it [...]

Mindless Decade: Finding a Finder

Sun, 25 Feb 2018 21:36:06 +0000

I often find myself being drawn into arguments where I know almost every example of the thing I’m defending is bad yet still feel compelled to argue for what I believe to a worthy principle. “Text section in comic books” is one example. People can tell me that they’re often bad (they are!) or that [...]

A few years ago I was asked to provide a back-up strip for a notable sci-fi comic that Image was publishing at the time. It didn’t end up being used but I thought I might share it with you for this whole Mindless Decade shebang. Enjoy! Share on Facebook Tweet This Post

Return To All Our Yesterdays

Thu, 22 Feb 2018 23:57:15 +0000

by Plok Bono to vada, Bloggers!  It’s been a while, hasn’t it? You know, writing something for the Mindless Decade has proved to be, for me anyway, an interesting challenge.  What do you get, for the blog that has everything?  Something thematic, probably… But just what is the theme, of this multifarious 4D pink tentacled [...]

Mindless Decade: Welcome to the Multiverse

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 18:56:06 +0000

For my own contribution to the MINDLESS DECADE! I thought I’d go back to May 2015, when in one of my occasional bursts of productivity I wrote ten thousand words or so on Multiversity in a little over a day. Since then, I’ve released that series of essays as an ebook, which you can normally [...]

Mindless Decade: Kirby’s Greatest Helmets

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 13:45:18 +0000

I’ve done almost shit all blogging on this site. Plenty of comics and podcasts but only one proper blog, so when it came time to choose my classic post my decision was incredibly easy. Here it is, nearly ten years old. It’s gone a bit stale, iPods aren’t a thing anymore and there’s plenty more [...]

How to do anti-nazi magic

Thu, 15 Feb 2018 21:35:59 +0000

The following steps may be taken whenever the taint of the fascist insect is felt. But to do it like they did it in the day, stake out thirty minutes beginning 11.30 on a Sunday morning. Step 1. A quiet room, not too bright. Clean the room with incense first if you like. Sit or [...]

We all devour down here

Tue, 13 Feb 2018 09:30:59 +0000

Hi, Mr. Morrison! Can I call you Grant? Great. Great. Gotta say, fantastic job getting Happy! on TV and with Pax Americana changing the whole freaking game and everything. Uh, listen. We need to talk. We’ve been going back over your oeuvre and, well, we noticed some points of…concern, so we just wanted to check on [...]

I’M GONNA MAKE YOU SICK. I’M GONNA MAKE YOU SICK OF ME. THEN I’M GONNA GIVE YOU THE  ANTIDOTE The year is 2099. Jokesss! It’s 2 0 1 8  and we are 10 tears old, or maybe just six tears, the way man counts these things It doesn’t matter. Here we fester yet. Dry your [...]

Mindless Decade: DΔDΔDΔDΔDΔDΔ

Sun, 11 Feb 2018 12:51:58 +0000

Because everything is entropy right? It’s always all downhill. Part of our ten-year challenge has been to find old posts that we like and can bear to  bring up and choke on again. This is where I realised that the first post I wrote for the site was my best and favourite, and also offers an [...]

Impersonism: a manifest

Wed, 07 Feb 2018 20:47:20 +0000

I’ve tried to hide from the truth, but wherever I go it finds me… whatever age I might claim to be, right here, right now, I’m an Internet Grampa. As soon as a columnist finishes the first draft of an article bemoaning the hordes of trolls that lurk under every digital bridge, I’m knocking at [...]

Batman ’66: The Minstrel’s Shakedown/Barbecued Batman

Wed, 07 Feb 2018 03:02:47 +0000

What’s The Story? The Gotham City Stock Exchange is rocked by a series of bizarre trades, causing wild swings in stock prices — fortunes have been won and lost, in a day like no other in the history of the stock exchange. Everyone is baffled, until a TV broadcast is interrupted by a new villain, [...]

  Can it really be 10 years? 10 years since reality glitched, flexed like a Russian gymnast and then dry-heaved a small barely-formed, mewling blog into being? 10 years since 4 plucky lads from Liverpool formed like Voltron to change the face of pop music forever? 10 years since the Nostalgialator was switched on? 10 [...]

The Crisis Project: Issue 2

Sat, 03 Feb 2018 01:35:40 +0000

The most interesting thing we learn in issue two of Crisis on Infinite Earths is that the scope of the story is much wider than we might have originally supposed. This is saying something, considering that the whole point of issue one was that the entire multiverse was at stake and that universes were being [...]

Batman 66: Hot Off the Griddle/The Cat and the Fiddle

Mon, 22 Jan 2018 15:50:56 +0000

What’s The Story? Batman and Robin are alerted to a series of thefts, involving cat-related items (a model catamaran, a catalogue, and mittens belonging to one Andrew S Kitten). As they correctly hypothesise, these thefts are being orchestrated by Catwoman, who they had previously presumed dead. Catwoman has been hiring the best cat burglars in [...]
