  1. The Highest House by Mike Carey, art by Peter Gross. Obviously anything the two of them do is going to be a winner but the whole thing is only about 150ish pages and I'm really left wanting more. I heard sales weren't so great though, shame. Well worth a read, classic Vertigo feel but a bit more high fantasy.

  2. Yeah Ennis is not a writer who has any reason to write in 616 or ultimate continuity, he's not going to work off it and the things he wants to do don't really fit with marvel anyway. He's also gotten much better at writing in an American cadence without the characters sounding Irish which I think has always been a weakness of his.

    I don't know....has Cyborg really become a popular enough character in the DC mythos that throwing him on to different teams can increase fan interest?

    The  animated Titans show from the early 2000s was a huge hit so maybe they're hoping it'll help specifically with a TV audience

  4. Have you guys seen  Putin's response to being asked about the pee tape? It's more like a sarcastic 'yes' than a denial.

    I did hear these rumors that we allegedly collected compromising material on Mr. Trump when he was visiting Moscow. Let me tell you this: When President Trump was in Moscow back then, I didn’t even know that he was in Moscow. I treat President Trump with the utmost respect, but back then, when he was a private individual, a businessman—nobody told me that he was in Moscow. Let’s take the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, for instance. There were over 500 American businessmen there—high-ranking, high-level ones. I don’t even remember the last names... Do you think we tried to collect compromising material on each and every single one of them?

    As soon as you get out of the major cities, prices plummet. Salisbury and Winchester are 1.5 hour train rides from London. Maybe Northampton. If you like outdoorsy stuff, your options increase because there are lots of little towns handy to nature rambles as dug by oldschool poets and authors.

    Interested in those little towns, any you'd recommend?

    I'm guessing that the Liberal media is exaggerating the awfulness of life post-Brexit. Just like after the election of Trump. All the Liberal pundits were predicting that the economy was going to revert right back to the depression of 2008 again as soon as Trump took office. Instead, the stock market soared and unemployment kept going down.

    Their predictions of "doom and gloom" are often highly over-estimated. I doubt England is going to collapse.

    The Pound is still looking very healthy next to the Canadian dollar.

    I'm thinking you'll be perfectly fine going to England.

    Between you and me if the pound drops a lot it'll make my trip a lot cheaper...
