Poem bomb

Poem bomb

woe betide the man who dreams,
Woe betide the  dreamers,
Nothing good comes from hope,
Its the falsest of all things,
Redemptions a lie,
Accept your fate,
A death you won’t remember,
becalm your quivering spirit
Embrace your damnation,
Woe betide the dreaming man,
The path he walks is hollow,
Woe betide the fools that follow,
Lingering pain is their fortune,
Despair is their only boon.

Jon has finished work on the first part of G&I:ATTM . You can find it here:

Needless to say I’m happy with it. I also had a fab meeting with Leah Moore of Electricomics. It was all top secret stuff about where they see the future of the platform and the art form. I’m not at liberty to discuss much more than that but then again I have big mouth. It’s part of the reason I no longer practice law (Client confidentiality and all that).

I think I’m going to move forward with a film project. Please let me know what you think of the comic.

Here in England professional wrestling has never gotten the respect that it deserves. Despite it’s long history (pro-wrestling has been around in Europe since the 19th century) and it’s undeniable cultural impact it is considered uncouth to mention pro-wrestling in polite society.Cries of “It’s all fake” from critics and it’s sleazy reputation mean that this physically demanding performance art is simply seen as low brow entertainment that can tell us nothing about the human condition. People that are fans of pro-wrestling are often seen as dullards who have not caught on that it is fake.  Somehow the art has been tarred by fact that those who most appreciate it are seen as unintelligent. Here’s the thing though; we fans know. It does not matter. We know they aren’t really trying hurt each other (most of the time).
