Cycling Through London The Day Before Tier 2 Restrictions Come In
At midnight, London goes onto Tier 2 lockdown, which isn't as bad as the Tier 3 that Manchester and Liverpool are about to go under, even as Batman is meant to be filming there, but give us Londoners time and I'll sure we'll catch up. Tonight, there are already reports of a last hurrah-style bacchanalian debauchery[...]

Rian Hughes' Burlesque Gallery And Introduction To Soho Dives, Soho Divas
Here is the introduction to Image Comics' upcoming Soho Dives, Soho Divas, for November. I'm sure that, like me, you're wary of unsolicited emails offering strange and seductive promises But, sometimes, curiosity can get the better of you That's how adventures usually begin.

And there's even a little gallery space. There is the matter of the location, opposite porn alley and on the corner of Soho's red light district, but even that seems to be changing in the near future and it is also in the heart of London's media industries, and on the same street as some of[...]
