It's nice to see them take their fine tradition of shit covers to a new medium.

I'm sure it will be good... I mean, we all remember what a great job Dani made of breaking into film...

This is all true. I wasn't even planning on attempting the accent.

You're going to be the film version, aren't you?

Hawking is just pretending to be someone he's not, putting on that fucking robot voice to hide his roots. Traitor.

The thing that shits me up the wall about that comic is that it was created via donations from a kickstarter fund. A band like CoF shouldn't need to use those. It'll no doubt be inspired by Clive Barker and look like (1990 movie) Nightbreed.

From Cradle of Filth Facebook:

Wow! You lovely fuckers!

We finally hit the figure needed to produce all these smashing goodies for the Kickstarter (very) graphic novel campaign for Cradle Of Filth's forced entry into the illustrated world. After only two days!

Unfortunately some unwitting fools have asked, why, when evidently I have so much filthy money, this literary atrocity has been put into effect? And why the hell I couldn't have paid for it myself?

Truth be told (and I really hate to admit it) , the steering wheel of my luxury onyx yacht (The 'Ship of Devilment', look it up ) has broken, so it has to be fixed somehow, else I beach me and my bitches on the ill-fated shores of Talkinbollox (somewhere, I believe, just off the coast of Ipswich).

Anyhoo, people with proper common sense, the 666th pledger for this campaign (which cost $20,000 just to make, write, draw, kiss, weave, love, entice, package, draw again, write again, ship, blackmail etc), will receive something truly unique.

Me! (no, you'd give me back after a day, it'd be horrid!).

We can't say yet, possibly because both Kurt and I are terribly hungover, so keep your eyes peeled for tomorrow. That's if Kurt gets his Norleans arse out of bed in time!

Also, the awesome Rock Opera game ' Karmaflowgame' is fully underway as well, (baring in mind i am the ugliest person featured on it. If you don't believe me, check out the 'hotties' onboard) main-man Ivo (fugging love this guy) will update everyone shortly.

Any other problems please contact our lovely girl-behind-the-shadows Laura Woodley.

Plus…

Cradle touring in February!

Costs a lot of money to print comics. Money Cradle and the Label (If they're still on a label?) wouldn't pay for. It's a good move.

Crowdfunding is the way forward for creators to keep control of their creations if they're a large project.

I'll not be buying it.

I've finally read the Frank Miller's Robocop series.

I guess it's easier to put graphic violence into print instead of satire? It's better than the Robocop sequels (which it was supposed to be in the first place) but, let's be honest, that's not hard is it?

It's funny how Anne Lewis's uniform gets more revealing through wear and tear. And I cannot remember Nancy Allen looking that shapely...

The first issue of Neil Gaiman's The Sandman Overture came out today. J.H. Williams did the art, he's one of the best in the business right now.

I was enthusiastic about it when HBO were looking at it, but I'd be cautious with anyone else.

There's no way they could do it justice onscreen, I'd approach it with pessimism. Plus, on a personal note: what are the odds of them getting an actual Irish actor to play Cassidy, and if they do, what are the odds that he'll get the Dublin accent right and not have a D4 accent? No chance, even Ennis got his accent wrong. Anyway, they'd never get the Saint Of Killers right, or Arseface, Jody, the Seraphi, D'Aronique...

I'd rather it not happen certainly, but if it HAS to be filmed (which apparently all half-way successful things must be), HBO are the only ones I'd trust to do it half-right. It would be its own thing, though.

I have never read Frank Miller and never will. I enjoyed this:

Frank Miller is not without his valid achievements, but they're extremely limited. He's at his best when he's writing someone like Batman (NOT DKSB, obvs) where his right-wing elitist stance is character-appropriate, or Daredevil where he can use the grandiose gothic-Catholicism thing to perfect effect, but even at his best he's not a patch on Moore, Gaiman or Morrison. The first few Sin City stories are fun if you take them as straight-faced self-satire, but lose their appeal a little when you realise that Miller sees them as documentaries.

I've flicked through Holy Terror, and it is the work of a madman.
