With the tsunami of excitement surrounding the announcement a few weeks ago that Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have been greenlit by AMC to bring Garth Ennis and Steven Dillon’s PREACHER to the small screen I decided the time was almost right for a re-reading. It’s been about five years since the last one so I’m due anyway, excitement surrounding this news or not. However, I say ‘almost’ because there is another book I wanted to re-read first, one that I haven’t revisited since about 2001 and its been on my mind for awhile now. That book is Garth Ennis and Phil Winslade’s 8-issue mini series GODDESS.

Ah, William William William. You just cannot stay away from the things that go bump in the night for very long, can you? Certainly not now that Mike Wolfer has launched Gravel: Combat Magician with Avatar Press. And if Gravel’s going to get sucked back into the Dark Arts and those that use them for their benefit, you can bet the blood is going to flow and the magic is going to be eldritch and dark.

Good. I like my magic dark.

Cue the Bugles Triumphant

(Or…the article in which Tommy probably gets too personal.)

Cue Sonic Youth’s “Compilation Blues.”

Your Fucked Up Childhood #1 Jack Prelutsky ‘The Ghoul’

The Ghoul

This Be The Verse
BY PHILIP LARKIN

They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.

But they were fucked up in their turn
By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
And half at one another’s throats.

Man hands on misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don’t have any kids yourself.

Thee Comic Column #72: Wicker

Last year I came across a comic called Ruin. After researching Ruin in its embryonic state I contacted and interviewed creators Darker Sho and Ruben Rojas. The Ruin kickstarter was a success and Ruin is in production.

Joup’s Friday Album – Fourth Edition – Manic Street Preachers ‘The Holy Bible’

manix460I feel I’d be remiss in my responsibilities as Cultural Correspondent for the Divided Queendom if I didn’t represent some of the misunderstood (or externally ignored) classics this country has produced. I’m at a loss to think of too many that aren’t globally renowned on at least a cult level, but there is one that’s never far from my mind as deserving of greater recognition across the Atlantic.
