Not gonna make a big deal. It’s not like I ever met the guy or even read more than a handful of his books.
Still though, as the author of my favourite book of all time passed away today I felt the urge to post up something even if it’s just a recommendation that anyone who hasn’t read The Wasp Factory really should. I’m not one for re-reading books. My copy of this is dog eared to hell both from my use and my forcing it on anyone else I could.
Like I said, if you haven’t read this, do yourself a favour…

Been at the hotties, Joe?
I don’t even know where to start…
On the plus side this is new Dredd material, but if it is anything like the current IDW Dredd then I am not sure it is going to be very good. The cover gives me bad vibes as it reminds me of the slew of US artists who tried to draw Dredd on the covers of the Quality Comics reprints.
Guess we will have to wait and see but if the Lawgiver and Pimpmobile are anything to go by then I am not holding out much hope.
SCARdiff is a brand new horror expo co-produced by Fantasy Events, horror author Wayne Simmons and Shock Horror Magazine. This is a one day event taking place at the Mercure Holland Hotel Cardiff on Sunday 27th October 2013
This will be a multi channel fan event featuring writers, publishers, comic book artists, actors, special effects artists and directors. The format will be interactive with workshops, Q&A panels and film screenings throughout the day. Confirmed guests so far include Dominic Brunt and Joanne Mitchell (BEFORE DAWN), bestselling horror author David Moody (AUTUMN, HATER) and director Simeon Halligan (SPLINTERED).
What’s the 2000AD connection you ask? Well, hopefully there will be a few more to announce nearer the time, but for now we can confirm that the awesome John Higgins will be a Special Guest at this mini-expo, which frankly, is enough of a reason to go for us
Tickets are now on sale at the official SCARdiff website at the special price of £6.66, for the next 30 days (and nights) only – see what they did there??
Updates will also be added as they happen to the Facebook page, and the Twitter feed.
As taken from the Flash Bang Wallop Facebook page, here’s a new pic of Lauren Integra in Judge Anderson mode.
And before everyone goes nuts, YES… they do know they got the shoulder pads the wrong way round. Don’t sweat it. Psi Judges are allowed to piss about with the rules.
Anyway, this is apparently one of a full photoshoot so keep an eye on their page for more updates
Here’s Henry Flint and Ben Willsher showing off the sketches that they did for each other in the hotel bar on Saturday evening. The light was utterly shocking (hence poor quality photo’s – sorry!) but look at what they pulled out of the bag in that rotten light – Phwoar!
