So there's a General Election happening tomorrow in Britain. Yes, another one. It is currently expected that Boris Johnson and the Conservative Party will be returned to government with a small majority – but it is in no way certain. The Conservative Party has had to throw their usual fiscal conservatism to the dogs, and […]
I've just popped into Piranha Comics in Kingston-Upon-Thames for my weekly collection of comic books. The usual mix of superheroes and action-adventure that comics suits so well. But in between them all is one of comic books' dirty little secrets – as secret as something that has been adapted into a movie starring Keanu Reeves, […]
Okay, okay this will need a spoiler warning sign. Not so much for Avengers: Infinity War because by now, come on. But for Frozen 2 which, you know, is only just out. So. Spoiler warning. Then we'll go see what Frank Cho has drawn for you all. There we go. Another one of his black […]
Great Britain has just had our first national TV debate between the two main party leaders, Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Leader of the Opposition Jeremy Corbyn, ahead of the General Election in three weeks' time. During the debate, the Conservative Party totally rebranded their Twitter account to read FactCheckUK with purple livery. And proceeded […]
Prime Minister Boris Johnson's made a number of comments about the state of Great Britain, during the ongoing General Election campaign yesterday. And they seem to come in response to yesterday's video from Momentum that used Batman and the Joker to talk about taxation and modern-day British politics and priorities. Visiting a vehicle manufacturer in […]
On Wednesday, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson gave a speech at an electric car plant in which he took credit for both the Marvel and DC Cinematic Universes, noting "British actors play both Spiderman and Superman under this Government. I'm going to take credit for it." It would be tempting to take this as the […]
In a world in which Marvel Comics has been shown to repeatedly remove Donald Trump jokes made by its creators, DC Comics may be taking another tack. Yesterday, Bleeding Cool looked at the new John Constantine comic written by Si Spurrier, kicking off the new run of Sandman Presents comic books, We enjoyed its introduction […]
It's Tuesday morning. The mind wanders… and politics and comic books combine. Shut up, I don't care. Although saying that, any criticism in the comments will ensure I never do this again. Or, ensure I do it anyway in some Nixonian internally-destructive psychological 'I'll-show-em' fashion. Your call. I apologise now.
From outside the Supreme Court of Great Britain today, where the court is deciding whether or not the proroguing of Parliament is legal or not. The case will take three days, but that doesn't stop protestors from lining up outside as I was cycling by. Now whether or not Prime Minister Boris Johnson can prorogue […]
In an interview with the Mail On Sunday, Prime Minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Boris Johnson MP, compared himself – and Britain – to the Incredible Hulk. In quite specifically geeky detail too. 'Banner might be bound in manacles, but when provoked he would explode out of them. Hulk always escaped, no matter […]
Talking to The Mail On Sunday, Prime Minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Boris Johnson MP, has compared himself Britain to the Incredible Hulk, in regards to the whole Brexit situation. Stating that Britain will break out of its 'manacles' like The Incredible Hulk if a Brexit deal cannot be struck by October 31st. […]
#notcomics Boris Johnson, MP has just been elected by members of the Conservative and Unionist Party. And because the Conservatives, with support from the Democratic Unionist Party, have a (slim) majority in the House Of Commons, Boris Johnson will now be Prime Minister of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The current Prime Minister, Theresa May, […]

This is Boris Johnson, Mayor of London on drugs. A couple of classic quotes; "Yes, cannabis is dangerous, but no more than other perfectly legal drugs. It's time for a rethink, and the Tory party – the funkiest, most jiving party on Earth – is where it's happening." "I can't remember what my line on […]
