Dark Horse: "Groo once again encounters his sister, Grooella, who got all the brains in that family . . . not that there were a lot to go around. She’s at war with the Kingdom of Comino, and just when things are going poorly, her brother shows up (as he so often does) to make them worse!"



8/24 pages below )

Issue #6 brings one of the characters with the most appearances in Groo's stories: The Sage.

Mod Post: Off-Topic Tuesday

In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like. Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

Well, in

Angela Merkel won a fourth term as Chancellor in Germany, though the far-Right party AfD did worrying well, with 12.6% of the vote. Though in a move worthy of UKIP or a Tory Party leadership contest, one of the co-leaders (and the apparently somewhat more moderate figure) walked out of the post-election press conference saying she would not sit with the party in the Bundestag. Uncertain times ahead.

In the US, the Apricot Hellbeast has managed another deflection of attention (From little things like six senior members of his staff being found to use private e-mail servers, something which the Republicans endlessly excoriated Clinton for), by making comments some wildly inappropriate comments (especially for a PoTUS) criticising those who choose to kneel for the National Anthem as a visible protest against racial inequality and police brutality.

In Arizona, their Supreme Court ruled that in the case of a lesbian married couple who divorced, both women had parental rights which should be respected. It's a little more complicated than that, but nice recognition.

And the US Marines got their first female infantry officer.

I'm ashamed to say I realised too late that last week was Bisexual Visibility week, and I didn't post a single damn thing about it. Sorry about that, Bi Community members! Anyone up for some postings to compensate?

Star Trek Discovery debuted, and I have to say I was very impressed by it. Yes, the tech doesn't line up with the fact it's pre-TOS, and another unexplained retcon of Klingon appearance is bound to throw some people off, but the cast were impressive (Seriously, Sonequa Martin and Michelle Yeoh were bloody awesome and Doug Jones worked well too!), but it made sense to do a soft reboot of the tech fifty years into the franchise and ANYTHING which tries to make the Klingons interesting again has my vote. It's a slow burn, but one worth checking out.

Theresa May gave a speech on Brexit (Or as one wag has dubbed it, "Operation Enduring Clusterfuck") last week in Florence, which managed to be non-committal on everything, even being non-committal, which is quite an achievement, sort of.

But, in an amazing exmaple of shooting oneself in the foot, the Labour Party decided not to discuss Brexit at all at their Annual Conference, which has raised a hell of a lot of eyebrows.

But to end things off on an upbeat note Puppies!

Obiter Dicta: Finally Fall Edition

Just posting a bit tonight. I've been ill again: people hangover from Queen's Prize, pinched nerve in neck acting up, and then after more than a year, my uterus decides to bleed again. In copious amounts. Seriously, WTF? I thought I was done with all that for good.

It's probably stress. Health things, house things, all taking up a lot of my time and money. It's not as bad as living in one of the hurricane or fire areas, but still--my fucking house is breaking in half! There's no good way to spin that!

Garage repair is next week. Going to have to watch them like a hawk because it doesn't look like their salesman communicated well with the main office. Bob is supposed to get the garage stuff moved out of the way this week. I'll be parking outdoors for awhile.

Will write more about Queen's Prize when I'm feeling better.

Autumn is finally here, thank goodness. Weather is supposed to turn cooler this week. Stupid oak mites are back, but at least the summer is closing out.

for days this haze i'm in

I woke up this morning with an overwhelming sense of existential dread* after a seemingly endless dream of being lost at JFK, and also feeling seriously queasy.

I called out of work and went back to bed, and spent the day reading fic. And, oh yeah, got my period for the first time since May. Coincidence? I think not.

Sigh. Time to restart the menopause clock.

*as opposed to the normal level of existential dread that I've been feeling every morning since last November, which is bad, but doesn't usually prevent me from getting out of bed most days

Crisis on Infinite Earths #4

[personal profile] history79 posting in [community profile] scans_daily



"There were several problems at DC at the time. Sales were bad (they're bad now but the entire industry sales are bad) and Marvel readers wouldn't be caught dead reading DC comics. I felt, as did many, that although DC fans understood the multiple Earths perfectly and without trouble, it was a problem to attract new readers and possibly a sign of a DC problem for the Marvel zombies. By simplifying the DC universe I believed we could attract new readers, which we did. Crisis was one of the first DC Comics (Titans being the other) that Marvel readers would check out."
