A random addition, but just to say - I've backed this to the tune of 3 copies. I'm really excited about this book, the price is right, the goal is shockingly modest, and Ben is an experienced publisher that I know will deliver. I had a pretty solemn vow to ignore crowd-funding this year, and this damn book has already made me break it.

You *did* warn me on Twitter - I've followed through and bought Secret Prey, as well as the latest. Honestly, if a book this dated and cheesy can still be fun and more-ish, I'm interested to see what happens when the series gets better.

Not that I've been in the gym for a decade (and I've got the physique to prove it!) (deadlifts box of donuts)... but I've got a VERY perky spotify list for my walk to and from work. Which is an absolute blast, except for the damn cyclists who invariably catch me singing to myself.

After re-reading the first ten volumes of Hellblazer (yay, holidays!), including at least three attempts by two different writers to send Constantine to America... I'm now extra-resolved that something like Ghost Rider needs to happen. I know there's something anthropologically valid about the outsider's perspective on American society, but seriously, no one seems to get it right. Are there any good American occult detectives in comics? (Also, another reason I like Tim Power's Last Call so much!)
Anne and I have finally started Nashville and we love it. Although I suspect I'm far more into the music than she is. But - a bit like Jessica Jones - it is also so awesome to find a show that's all about and driven by women. (Especially since all the men, with the exception of Powers Boothe are so weedy).
