After trying to find a copy of 2000AD's adaptation of The Stainless Steel Rat, I went right to the source and picked up a pdf from 2000AD themselves. Very cheap and totally worth it. The Rat's adventures (1st, 3rd and 5th novels) are portrayed very faithfully and with very few additions (for instance, they dispense with a lot of the cosmetic surgery the Rat has performed on him because it's a weekly comic and casual readers would - I assume - be confused if their hero looked different every few issues) and it is a fantastic read with terrific artwork.
"There's a horror movie named Alien? That's really offensive. No wonder everybody keeps invading you."
Been poring over some old comics from the Silver Age. They’re really silly and big on the science fiction (You ever want to see Batman regularly fight aliens? Now you can!) but in these trying times sometimes you need something silly.
Also, despite its ‘flaws’ the Silver Age did greatly influence and create a lot of now established characters going forward. Bat-Mite and Mister Mxyzpltk are a perfect example of that.
Reading the second volume of the original B&W Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Man, was there an indie comic during the 80s that Cerebus didn't guest star in? Never read any of his comics but that darn Aardvark seems to be popping up all over the place in my voyages, from TMNT to Spawn.
Currently re reading through Resurrection Man from the ‘90s. He’s a great character and one that unfortunately seems to have been ignored in recent years by the rest of the D.C. Universe.
Well aside from that unfortunately cancelled New 52 series from a while back I suppose. I’m just rather surprised he never made a guest appearance in the Arrowverse. Have him be some amnesiac who wanders into town, assists the heroes and then promptly gets killed off. Only to have a scene before the credits where he wakes up in a mortuary to set up possible future appearances. Practically writes itself.
Back for some more Blake & Mortimer. Second part of a trilogy, so I had to google a synopsis of the first one. I really should just stick to something until I'm done instead of flitting around between a dozen different comics.
Star Trek Voyager Mirrors and Smoke. One-off mirror universe short story. Yes, it is short and yes, it is silly. But I do LOVE mirror universe stories. And this one gives everyone an interesting new costume (well, apart from the EMH and Seven) and everyone gets their little bada$$ moment where they can shine. We even see Neelix wielding a jagged sword. However, since the episode "Renaissance Man", nobody should be in any doubt who the most dangerous person on board the Voyager really is... so that one was not really a huge surprise. Fun little story. I wonder if we ever get a follow-up?
