He'd gone to the arena with his slave Bran.

He'd found a lead in his investigations, a gladiator's memento.

He watched the gladiator in question, Achillia, win another of her matches.

He went down to confront her. )

It’s explicitly a book about fading Empire. M16’s roots are in World War 2, and the core of the plot reaches back to there. What is Britain’s place in the world now? What does being British even mean? In a real way, it is a post-Brexit Bond. -- Kieron Gillen

Since Foolkiller ended with the implication Frank Castle was about to shoot The Hood, and the general consensus was "good riddance", I thought I'd take us all back to a time before Parker Robbins was a lame magic Kingpin wannabe, with the MAX series that first introduced him, written by a pre-Runaways and Y: The Last Man Brian K. Vaughn and drawn by Kyle Hotz.

"We wondered if he thought a planet full of women could ultimately rebuild society and sustain itself once again. Vaughan was surprisingly optimistic on that front. "Yes, I do think it could. There were a lot of people early on in the first year who complained, "Wow, this is such a misogynistic book to say that, because the men died, the women can't get the electricity running all over the world and the airports up and running again." I think that's an extremely complex, extremely difficult thing to deal with. When three billion people die, I don't care what their sex was, that's an incredibly difficult thing to come back from. I will say that the world would be better off than if it were just the men left. I think that would be an even more dire situation. I think there is hope for the planet."

"I'd read the two BROTHER POWER THE GEEK comics as a small boy, and thought they were seriously weird. Rereading them as an adult they were still seriously weird, and funny, and touched with a sad, strange nostalgia. I'd been reading some Ken Kesey, and somehow the idea of Brother Power as a final remnant of flower power began to possess me. 'At least you didn't bring back Prez,' said my friends, relieved. Little did they know."

In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like. Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves.

Britain has had another pretty awful week, a horrendous fire in London, causing any number of questions about the housing situation and cuts to the Fire and Emegenecy Services. Local's rally round in magnificent

Also in London, a white terrorist attempted to run down a group of worshippers at a Mosque as they left late night prayers. One dead, several injured, and notably, an Imam who protected the attacker from potential angry mob to ensure that the rule of law and justice would proceed. (Even The Daily Mail had, eventually and after it's usual shoddy attempt to victim blaming, to describe a white man as a terrorist, a move so outside their normal scope that a friend of a friend described it as "Like hearing a cat moo")

Also Brexit negotations started... with the UK team immediately capitulating on the order of discussion, a topic which they had promised they would fight all summer long.

In the US, the tentative loosening of diplomatic relations with Cuba initated by Obama, were summarily removed by Trump... citing human rights concerns... Which, given the human right records of certain countries he recently toured and praised to high heaven, seems to be a rather radical disconnect, even by Trumpian standards.

In more upbeat news a College at Oxford University has loaned a 19th century violin to a 14 year-old Syrian refugee and musician.

The opening titles for the new Ducktales series have been previewed, and though the new animation style will take some getting used to, it seems very promising, with some very definite nods to Carl Barks in the layouts.

And it's been announced that Animaniacs may be returning to the small screen

"Transformers: Rescue Bots" which ended after four seasons (and the longest run of any single title in the Transformers franchise" is getting a sequel "Rescue Bots Academy" which will follow the further adventures of the team, as set up in the series finale. Also announced is another Transformers series (presumably something to replace Robots in Disguise?) and new series using the name "Micronauts", though how it ties in to comics old, new, or whatever toy line Hasbro has been working on, is anyone's guess right now.

Peter Capaldi's final season as the Doctor starts it's two part finale this coming weekend, with the return, after fifty years, of the original design "Mondasian Cybermen" (Mondas being the long lost twin planet of Earth that appeared in William Hartnell's final story "The Tenth Planet", which also introduced the Cybermen). Also featured in the trailer is the return of John Simms as the Master which, since the story also includes Michelle Gomez as Missy, makes this the first multiple Master/Mistress story on TV.

Also in a cute note, just discovered that in "Dark Water", the Season 8 story which revealed Missy was the new incarnation of the Master, her line "I am a Mobile Intelligence Systems Interface, MISI for short" (As a fake out, since we viewers had no idea who or what Missy was at that time), was originally recorded as "I am a Random Access Neural Interface, or RANI for short" in case anyone outside the film crew overheard the recording (There was much speculation about that Missy might actually be a regenerated Rani, the amoral scientist Time Lord the 6th and 7th Doctors met) so the surprise could be kept.

New Wonder Woman creative team

Wonder Woman cover
So, DC has announced the next creative team for Wonder Woman. In September, #31 will mark the onset of James Robinson (Scarlet Witch, Squadron Supreme), Carlos Pagulyan (Deathstroke), and Emanuela Lupacchino (Superwoman). The new team will tackle the Rebirth mystery of Wonder Woman's secret brother Jason. By the looks of the cover, Giganta and Grail appeared to be involved in some capacity.

This could make for an interesting run. Robinson has done generally mixed work at DC, in my opinion, but his Marvel work seems pretty good. The two artists are also great. Will look at this with openness.
