Busy, busy, busy - Wrong, wrong, wrong

Busy, busy, busy so here's some stuff to look at along with a few quick book reviews.

Right off to write to my MP (Alistair Darling for those interested) about the Digital Economy Bill and how it is wrong, wrong, wrong.


Comic protests that takes you around the world. Ctrl.Alt.Shift Unmasks Corruption is a comic collective who take on some serious projects and present them in a sympathetic way. Some better than others.

A short from Warren Ellis, Aetheric Mechanics feels like one of those ideas he had and dashed of quickly before it vanished from his vast brain. It's short and blunt but as usual clever and well presented.

I love Tomine austere art work in Sleepwalk. Fine lines with deep blacks that remind me Charles Burns. Good story telling as well.

Solipsistic Pop collection no 1. Some good, some not so, but good enough so that I'll buy collection no. 2.

Flinch is another collection this time from Australia. Only a couple were brilliant but some good stuff from Tan as usual.

A dark noir thriller set in the mind. The Manual of Detection is a brilliant idea, cleverly executed by a new author worth looking out for. Think Kafka with Bogart in it. Well presented book as well which is nice to see.
