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.

As we all know, the world situation is currently an endless kaleidoscope of kittens, puppies and baby otter photos, all set to a soundtrack of kd lang and Louis Armstrong.

Sigh, nope, I can't do it. I wish I could, but I can't.

Following recent attacks near the Houses of Parliament and the Manchester stadium blast, Britain had another terrorist attack this past weekend near London Bridge. Our thoughts go out to those impacted by this, or any other terrorist incident.

(And full marks to Ariana Grande for returning to Manchester for an impressively staged benefit concert so quickly)

Quite why the US President felt that right after the attack was an appropriate time to start a pissing contest with Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London (who has behaved with diplomatic aplomb throughout) is anyone's guess. With any luck it might put the nail in the coffin for any plans to give the Mangled Apricot Hellbeast the State Visit that our current PM ill-advisedly offered earlier in the year. It also means that his legal case about his travel ban on Muslims NOT being a travel ban but "Extreme vetting" is looking even weaker since he referred to it as "a travel ban" in one of his angry (Well, angrier than usual) tweets.

Speaking of the PM... Brits, we have a General Election this Thursday and by all you hold dear, if you can, PLEASE vote! If you're young and never voted and feel like your voice isn't heard, here is your chance to show that it is. It may not seem like much, but trust me, it's one of the most important things you can do. The Brexit referendum ended with the result it did largely because of voter apathy, especially in the disenfranchised young.

The Beatles seminal, ground-breaking album "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" celebrates 50 years since it's release.

The sequel to the more-perspective-distorting-than-turning-a-TARDIS-inside-out game "Monument Valley", called with remarkable originality" Monument Valley 2", was released last week.

And sort of on-topic but worth mentioning, Wonder Woman is enjoying phenomenal success, both critically, financially and in terms of word of mouth from those who have seen it, WAY beyond anything we might reasonably have hoped for. Just wanted to end on an upbeat note by mentioning that.

He'd found the successor of the legacy he was holding in trust.

He'd also found the author of many of Bangalla's recent troubles.

He and his allies had that man captured.

They let him go without asking any questions, because they didn't trust his answers.

Their reasons for that were entirely logical. )
