“Doctor… Who? Pah! I am the Captain! Sherbet lemon? Now step into my wardrobe. What? Yes, of course it’s smaller on the inside you blithering idiot!”—The Captain!
“There’s Ed, Op Ed, Op, and then there’s this blog.”—The Captain!
“Well done son, keep it up!”—The Captain’s Mum
“People will think you’re a nerd.”—The Captain’s Dad
“I hate this!”—vox populi
“I don’t care.”—The Captain!
“Who the Hell is the Captain anyway?”—Roy Mathur
“The Captain is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension.”—Anonymous
“Finally an honest review…great!”—Shayne T. Wright

Currently enjoying Gene Luen and Sonny Liew’s The Shadow Hero (2014), which reclaims him as a bona fide Chinese superhero. (I’m still waiting for a hero with whom I can culturally identify and it’s 2015!) These panels are for the … Continue reading
Merry Eve of… Christmas Eve! Until today the needle of my Super-O-Meter™ was firmly pointed at ‘Stylish Supervillain’, while I cackled with glee at the squirming masses of humanity from my Tower of Nerditude™. Unfortunately, a last-minute dash to the … Continue reading
I completely missed this TV interview, in case you did too, here it is again via a kindly YouTuber:
Holden Carver is James Bond with Rogue-like superpowers. He is a high level double-agent undercover in a supervillain’s cabal. Noir, hardboiled with superpowers thrown in for good measure. Not bad, though it is difficult to feel any real empathy whatsoever … Continue reading
I still occasionally wear this cool pendant, souvenir of the Kung Fu TV series, “liberated” from an older cousin BITD and dated via this retrotastic page.

With a lack of much to do apart from applying for jobs and waiting for BT to send me a router, I made use of Redhill Public Library and borrowed some books. Here’s a quick review of a few trades … Continue reading
Dynamite, the sort-of Big Finish of the comic book world, have been publishing a series called, Masks. It is a cross-over of a few fedora-wearing 1930s hard cases, including that master-of-men, The Spider and the original Mr. Nickel Plated 1911s, … Continue reading
The Wizard of Id – I really can’t think of anything funnier than this strip. Syndicated before the beginning of recorded history, this strip has entertained me since my age could be denoted with a single integer. Miniature king with … Continue reading

Episode 2 should be out by Monday morning. Subscribe to my RSS podcast feed or in iTunes. I can’t guarantee quality, but I’m trying it booze-free this time. So it could be even worse. “Strap yourself into a star-pilot’s acceleration … Continue reading
I’ve been reading Tintin since I was the size of a sack of rice, so I know what I talking about. Ordinarily I’m mostly a Spielberg fan too, but I’m sorry to tell you that this film sucked. Everything looks … Continue reading

Here’s a catchup review for most the comics I’ve read over the past couple of months. As you can see there’s quite a lot to get through and I’m starting to see the benefit of doing a weekly podcast… once … Continue reading
I don’t care what people say, I’m looking forward to the new Spiderman movie (The Amazing Spiderman) coming out July 2012. I enjoyed Toby McGuire’s Spiderman and I think Andrew Garfield will do a bang-up job too. I think he … Continue reading
Dredd, perhaps the most loved (and simultaneously reviled), longest running character in the epic British comic 2000 AD will celebrate 35 years of publication history next month. The one-man judge, jury and executioner of Mega City One, all that remains … Continue reading
