Hell Blazes

That's Brian Azzarello and Peter Milligan.

Incidentally, insurance dodgers might like to know that DCU comics are a bugger to burn.

Vertigo ones are more combustible.

We met around 9 for aforementioned hearty breakfast @ Hawksmoor, then due to rain, we had to curtail the trip to slightly drier options.

But from Archway to Suicide Bridge where the splash page of everyone's favourite Anti-RapeDemon Gun-toting chick was incinerated in sight of London.

 

Then to a secret holy ground, the ancient tunnels of Highgate, where JLD was used as kindling for the rest of #291 beneath arcane wall paintings and an empty Silk Cut packet. A passage from an Alan Moore book was read over the smouldering ashes.

 

And finally to Camden's Brew Dog pub to toast the ritual in ale.

It was a pleasure to burn. It was a special pleasure to see things eaten, to see things blackened and changed.

I consider myself part of a vast majority that wasn't born between 1910 and 1935. Hence, I am one of those who's against burning books. So I guess there is a logical explanation for that. I am curious about the explanation. Is it a way to protest for the comic content?

There is quite a difference between mass burning of books (etc) for purposes of destroying free thought or opposition.

These single issues were sacrificed in a ritual carried out to improve the world for those who continue to read the many copies of those comics that remain at large (although we might have to burn the internet because of torrenting and kindles).

So, those comics appeared on the astral plane once destroyed here, and the Powers there now turn them every way in pained confusion, trying to glean some sense and appeal from them. Between Their imminent howl of disgust and the twisted, slutty spectres freed by the conflagration, I fear we are in for some dire psychic turbulence.

Like porn sites melting computer monitors, and shit.

Spain, how else is Marilyn Manson going to shock insulated mid-westerners if he can't buy a Bible and then burn it on stage? You'll kill his career, the man has no discernible talent!

I, personally, don't like burning of books either, as I'd rather see them pass into someone else's hands if you dislike the content, but why would Adrian do that to someone? He's not an unfeeling man.

Besides, never once did Adrian say, "This book was written by a Jew or Marxist!" before deciding to burn the books.

 

Cunning-I fear, even moreso, that this may set about Armageddon. God will take it as a sign that the End Times are upon us, if that's what passes for popular entertainment today. We've been trying to hide the sorry state of pop culture from God for 50 years now to hold off His Wrath.

 

Chamber-Perhaps Adrian and his shady co-horts performed a pagan ritual with the sacrifice, in order to make Hellblazer readable again.

Wouldn't it be a bit late to kill his career now, in any case? It's a good five years since even the religious right have given a flying fuck about the wanker.

Well, Manson did punch Shia LeBeouf in the face, hence making the dream of a vast majority come true. The man deserves some credit.

Ok, so those comics suck, now I get it. Let's hope the ashes are smelt.

I offered it to anyone here who wanted it first.

No-one took the offer.

We don't hate ourselves, you know. (Also, I already own a copy of the vile sex-doll-Gemma comic)

How odd to leave for a month and come back to discover I'm an internet star. :smile:

 

Ade gets incendiary:

Ade, thanks for organising a grand day out. I enjoyed it from start to finish, weather notwithstanding.

Did you... actually burn five copies in five different spots of London forming a pentalpha?

Perhaps Ade had lost his Liston knife?

(Cheaper than that thing with hookers as well...)
