Dudes and ladydudes - those of you who enjoy PC games should check out the Humble Bundle Trove page - there are a bunch of games there which can be downloaded for free for the next 24 hours or so. Of the freebies, LIMBO is the only one I already own - definitely worth checking out, particularly for free.

The oddest thing is that one of the two scientists both looks and sounds (in voice and dialogue) quite like Jemaine Clements' character in Legion. Coupled with the weird ambiguity of when the events of Legion take place, it feels very much like the film could be a side story about Oliver Bird...



Oh, that is a film that I like very much and did ever since I first saw it, when I was about 13 or 14.

Latest part in the Warhammer 40K youtube fan film Helsreach. Only one more to go after this one I think. It is a shame they didn't have the colouring sorted for the earlier parts, it looks great in the final few chapters.

I went into this blind. I knew nothing except that id been slightly disappointed in black crown so far. The cartoony art took a lot of the edge off some strong violence and got me to buy in to the concept that the family might, might be in the right. That the delusions depths were revealed in the las 3 pages followed by the last page twist set up an interesting tale. I wont be back next issue but i may well chack out the trade to see how the story comes together.
5.5/10

: Review Group #654 - Asgardians of the Galaxy #1

Fun set up issue bringing together a bunch of mostly fondly remembered characters alongside a couple of completely forgotten ones, for an infinity wars tangential romp. The issue does a good job of setting up the relationship group and their surface mission whilst leaving enough questions unanswered for the future. The return of Throg, Kevin Masterson, Annabelle Riggs and Angela is overshadowed somewhat by the reveal of the Destroyers driver. Is this the loki seen elsewhere recently in disguise or is young loki truly back... and if so how?

I enjoyed the issue but wasnt blown away. 7/10

The new one from the team behind Trees is something a bit different. Where the hard sci-fi trappings of Trees frames a thoughtful character piece, this is a fun action romp hanging on an interesting twist on steampunk. Our hero(?) Is a charming but dangerous spy from earth in a lost interplanetary colony that really doesnt want to be found. Twist is, its 2018 and the colony is 100 years old.... and massive. On escaping from custody and teaming up with a "murderous" local guide, we start a run through a world where tech has developed independantly since 1920. Warren Ellis is always a must read for me and he doesnt let me down here. 8.5/10

Well, just watching BvsS for the first time, while playing a VN, so I don't get everything, but what I get is that Eisenberg seems to be trying to be some form of Joker while playing Lex Luthor.

That doesn't work for me at all.

I hate to admit it, because I'm not a fan of the guy, but yes, absolutely.

It's like even if you were agreeing with some of their points (which is pretty hard already), all you see of how they act is that they are whiny, aggressive little alters.

What I have to say is though, the bit about how Marvel keeps how their employes act towards fans online in check, that is something I can absolutely not subscribe to.

We all remember Wacko and Slott and I won't even go into the amount of lies and insult Brevoort constantly produces.

Perfectly done. All this, "there never used to be politics in comics" nonsense the alt-right are trumpeting is total nonsense.

Eddie "the Cross" and Skinhead, White Redeemer are some terrible names though.
