The multiple-sense heaviness of the Sylvester/Wilson/Robinson/Hernandez combo (which reads a bit like the start of a review of a prog rock album, I know, bear with) needs the true gravitas of George and Martha to provide balance.

A lot of people were back to work and school today, but owing to schedule freakery I am still blessedly, blissfully off. We went into a quiet town centre for a little light splurging in the sales.

Found in Oxfam: a Gilbert Hernandez volume. 250 pages, woop!

Love and Rockets, and rockets… a nice bit of thematic coherence followed in The Works, with the find that was this charming little volume:

Fridge magnet reproduction sci-fi book covers, and a fairly comprehensive Pocket History with a lavish spread of delicious images, from diaphanously dressed dames under aquatic threat…

… – cheeky! – to Vincent di Fate’s Big Dumb Object (makes note for band names list)…

…and a mere £2. Bargain.

Teaser trailer:
Speaking of sci-fi, finally got along to the cinema to see a certain reawoken franchise movie… More on which to come in the next few days.
