Rick Bjaker

A rather fine 1/1 Joker bust by childhood hero Rick Baker.
I would argue that it should be modelled in latex.

Red Failed Tatfish

While on his way to an appoitment with a puddle of Electric Eels, Jeremy encountered a Red Tailed Catfish.
It’s a corker.

Moanstress 15 Variant

Need to try and get this when #15 is published.
But probably not.

Joshua Middleton once again.

Colossal

Some flaws, but quite enjoyable nonetheless.
No squid though, which I think was a mistake.

Give yourself a non-shiny XX

If only this had been a rare, it would have made a rather smashing shiny.
It’s still nice though. And looks mighty fine in my unshiny Ixalan Merdfolk deck.

Planet of the Riveras

Cover to the comic adaptation of the unfilmed Planet of the Apes script written by Rod Serling back in the day.

Give yourself a shiny XIX

Another splendid Kev Walker foil.

Mark Edward Smith

Maker of some of my favourite music (and some I’m not so keen on) Mark E Smith has sadly died.
It’s hard to believe that his grizzled exterior (and no doubt stewed interior) was that of a man of 60.

Live hard, die fast and leave a knackered looking corpse.

Songs I like CCXXXI: Prince of Tears

For some reason, it feels like I shouldn’t like this.
But I do.

Ash vs Evil Dead Season 3

Awesome news on Season 3, less awesome poster.

Psychokinesis

Psychokinesis is the new film from Train to Busan director Yeon Sang-ho. The trailer looked decent.

I might finally get round to watching Train to Busan now.

Xerxes

Frank Miller is threatening to release Xerxes: The Fall of the House of Darius and the Rise of Alexander at some point this year (or at least start it).

I’m not sure Frank has it in him to complete Xerxes, let alone The Fall of the House of Darius or even the Rise of Alexander.

Still, it’s got to be better than 300: Rise of an Empire.

Yeah, I’ll still be buying it.

Give yourself a shiny XVII

Got this nice foil at the Rivals of Ixalan pre-release event (it has a date stamp on it, which I generally don’t like, but am willing to make an exception for in this case).
First attempt at any sort of competitive play, and I didn’t totally embarrass myself.

The Ridiculous Sux

Not seen it. Not going to watch it. I did find this bit amusing, however.

Leather 44

I put off reading the last few issues of Letter 44 for a while. Probably expecting it to fizzle out like so many other series.
It didn’t really, and I enjoyed issue 35 as much as I did issue 1.

Afraid of the Bill

Never seen this image or film before.
Suspect the poster may be the best bit about it.

Jim Baikie

Flippy neck.
Sadly Jim Baikie died December 21st.
Artist on Skizz and the underrated New Statesmen.
John Smith was unfortunate not to get much US work back in the day. Should really pick up his more recent stuff, and have a look at Skizz II and III (or is that SKIIZZ and SKIIIZZ).
