I apologize for not posting lately; but I've been lost since late July in the world of Sexton Blake. American readers might say, "Who?" but those who know the history of detective novels especially in Britain will be familiar with the name...and with Waldo the Wonder-Man, one of several precursors of Superman. Oh, the main influences were Philip Wylie's GLADIATOR, Flash Gordon and Doc Savage. But Waldo has his place.

Warning: I will be linking to some archives that occasionally use racist language. Do not click on those links and start reading those archives if such totally ruins your enjoyment of reading stories. And of course, linking to those archives does not mean any endorsement of such offensive language. Reading them, for love of the story or the characters, is in spite of such offensive terms.

In the comments to these weekly posts (and only these posts), it's your chance to go as off topic as you like.

Talk about non-comics stuff, thread derail, and just generally chat amongst yourselves

Well, Brexit is happening, which depresses the hell out of me, especially since it's now obvious that most of "Leave" team never expected to REALLY win and now have to backpedal on the promises they never expected to have to keep, which throws the whole thing into even more confusion and uncertainty. And also the repellent tide of xenophobic and racist crimes which are being reported since the vote went through (This link contains examples of racism and xenophobia, so be aware before you click) should bring shame to every British citizen  (As someone more succinct than I could ever be put it; "Not everyone who voted for Brexit is racist, but it's pretty clear everyone who is racist voted for Brexit").

But parts of the country which heavily backed the Remain (my one consolation is that my area is included in that list) are striking back against the xenophobic attitude

In other news, apparently it's Shark Week..

In more significant news, the US Supreme Court has struck down Texas' controversial (to say the least) laws limiting access to abortion

In finally (as they say in the newscasts)  a Police Officer proposed to his boyfriend in the middle of the London Pride Parade. How delightful that the sort of thing unthinkable or shameful only a few years ago is now reported as a feelgood story.

Warning for heavy racism, language, and violence.

In times like this, especially over the past few months since I last posted anything from March, I feel it's best to return to this comic.

Some other heroes are not so lucky!

Warning for both ableist and racist language and some perhaps not terribly sensitive handling of Native American culture. (I say this as the whitest of white folks, so do not feel qualified to properly judge such things, I may be judging too harshly)

Trigger Warning for Rape, Racism, Violence, Gore

"I really wanted to say something about the fact that the Marvel U.’s premiere super-team are card-carrying members of the Establishment. The same establishment who let people sleep on the streets and don’t provide decent medical cover for malnourished kids. The same establishment who let the Third World starve."

- Mark Millar
