It was a while ago and I've been kind of "Politics? STFU!" for a while so I'm probably just remember it wrong. I guess I kind of feel like if I'm going to spend time reading Bagge, I should probably re-read Hate.


I've been wanting to re-read the whole Bradley story from the beginning, of course there's gonna be a lot of dated references in there along the way too. For me, the subject matter isn't as important to my appreciation as the satirical humor and a good laugh now and then. If there were many more timely humor strips that are as smart as that, I'd read those too.

I'm not saying EiS was bad or anything, it's still Bagge and funny, I just need to be in the mood for something like that. As you mocked me for my Tales to Thrizzle :| , short stuff like that isn't as entertaining for me as something with a longer narrative.

I think your PUCKish post is possibly underselling the potential for Punchy rage in Invaders Now.

Well, for me it's the legacy of all those old underground comics. There's a good reason why R Crumb handed the reins over to Pete, after all. He's old school.

Why do you keep asking me stuff in PMs and then never responding again?


Sorry I'm running around like a chicken with his head cut off from one thing to the other installing stuff on the site. :(

But ok, as penance for neglecting V-Squid's PM replies, I will go with his advice - we'll do Billy the Kid and his Old Timey Oddities Fiends of London blah blah. :)

Billy the Kid’s Old Timey Oddities
and the Ghastly Fiend of London #1

selected by Jude Terror
Writer: Eric Powell
Artist: Eric Powell, Kyle Hotz

The world believes the notorious outlaw Billy the Kid was killed by Pat Garrett, but in reality the Kid is very much alive, the hired gun of Fineas Sproule's traveling spectacle of biological curiosities--or "freaks," as Billy calls them. In their latest adventure, Billy and crew confront their most vicious challenge yet: Jack the Ripper!

In London to visit a true Elephant Man, Billy, Sproule, and the company learn about the Whitechapel murders and the fact that disfigured people are being blamed for the killings and targeted for mob justice. As the group applies themselves to the case, Sproule looks for information at every bar in the city, while Billy tags along to drink whisky and flirt with prostitutes at each one-which might be a better way to find the Ripper than he realizes. Includes Goon backups by Eric Powell! $3.99

Come up with a good gimmick, and I'll send a mass email to anyone who's ever registered at the Outhouse inviting them to the Review Group. :)
