"I was talking earlier — about anarchy and fascism being the two poles of politics. On one hand you’ve got fascism, with the bound bundle of twigs, the idea that in unity and uniformity there is strength; on the other you have anarchy [...] where the individual determines his or her own life. Now if you move that into the spiritual domain, then in religion, I find very much the spiritual equivalent of fascism. The word "religion" comes from the root word ligare [...] and basically means "bound together in one belief." It’s basically the same as the idea behind fascism; there’s not even necessarily a spiritual component it. Everything from the Republican Party to the Girl Guides could be seen as a religion, in that they are bound together in one belief. So to me, like I said, religion becomes very much the spiritual equivalent of fascism. And by the same token, magic becomes the spiritual equivalent of anarchy, in that it is purely about self-determination, with the magician simply a human being writ large, and in more dramatic terms, standing at the center of his or her own universe. Which I think is a kind of a spiritual statement of the basic anarchist position."
-- Alan Moore, in Margaret Killjoy, Mythmakers & Lawbreakers (2009).

Figured some of you would be happy to hear that the official Junji Ito anime series is currently free on Crunchyroll. I don't know how long the series will be available on the service but all you need to do is register and you can stream it on any compatible device. Three episodes are already out.

'He’s such a fun character to write, especially with what Brian “Dead 2 Me” Bendis and Alex “Alive 2 Me?” Maleev have done with him. His arc has been amazing, and, honestly, only a writer as skilled as Bendis could’ve made it possible and plausible. I LOVE YOU BRIAN.' - Chip Zdarsky

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.

A little later than usual due to stuff going on, but still in before midnight GMT, so it counts.

After things calmed down a little after they introduced a new, white character, to appear in their live action Aladdin, Disney has created some rppled by darkening the skins of white actors so they could appear in background scenes, rather than actually casting people who already HAVE darker skins.

The US Government shut down for three days until a deal could be struck that will keep things going for another four weeks or so. Despite controlling both Houses AND the White House, Republicans blamed Democrats for causing the issue.

On the plus side,
UK Foreign Secretary and National Embarassment Boris Johnson has been told off by just about everyone in his own party for, to paraphrase, being an annoying pain in the ass.

Guillermo Del Toro's "The Shape of Water" has achieved 13 Oscar nominations.

Miraculous Ladybug introduced the first of it's new heroes in this weeks Frnech broadcast episode as Renard Rouge debuted, and we discovered there seem to be 19 Miraculous in total; The Ladybird and the Cat (which represent yin and yang), the Butterfly, the Turtle, the Bee, the Fox and the Peacock (which may represent the five Chinese elements) and twelve others which seem to relate to the Chinese zodiac
