Leaving the comics reviews til tomorrow, because Patreon has been having problems sending email notifications so people might not have seen the request for comics to review. If Patreon’s not working yet then I’ll leave it til Monday.
So for now, links:
An interesting fact — people have been saying that UKIP are going to do well in Leave-voting areas while the Lib Dems are going to do well in Remain ones. In fact, in post-referendum elections, the Lib Dems have done best in both types of area, and are doing better in leave areas than remain ones, while UKIP are doing badly in both but worst in leave ones…
Trump and the Batman Effect (NB Slate Star Codex so comments almost certainly crawling with fash)
And for those of you who use Comixology, the first issue of Transrealities (a comic written by my friend Abigail Brady and lettered by my friend Aditya Bidakar, among other excellent creators) is out now (US) (UK) for $0.99. I picked up a physical copy at Thought Bubble, and it’s very good, and I would say so even if I didn’t know some of the creators. If you like clever pop superhero time travel stories (the things it reminded me of most stylistically were Bulleteer from Seven Soldiers and The Wicked And The Divine, with perhaps a little hint of Kevin Maguire in Steve Horry’s linework), or stories with trans protagonists, then you’ll like it.
