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 among yourselves.

In the UK a patient has become only the second person to be declared free of HIV after a bone marrow transplant, though it's too soon to say that this is a cure.

The White House has said that Democrats are "harassing" POTUS 45.., which I sort of thought was their job in many ways. But then I think they might be looking to find anything to distract from the complete damp squib of the North Korea talks last week.

A senior Minister has quit the Canadian Cabinet over the Government's handling of a bribery case

My summary of the Brexit situation is perhaps best summarised by the fact that last week a topical news satire show gave a salient update on the current situation, only for me to realise that this was a rerun ONLY because the host happened to mention "It's six months to Brexit" when it's now less than four weeks.Sweet FA has moved forward and a lot of things have taken a lurching step backwards.

Apparently Fox dropped a digital Aliens based animated series last week. Did anyone notice?.

"Doom Patrol" continues to entertain, they even showcased a new (Well, new to me, I don't think they showed up in the Morrison run, but maybe in a later iteration?) personality to Jane, Silvertongue, who has a nicely televisual ability which she uses to great effect against some passing Nazi's. Also there's a terrific little cameo at the end of the episode which reminds us that the Doom Patrol was ludicrously weird LONG before Grant Morrison came along.

"Power Rangers Beast Morphers" launched, with a stronger than usual set up, and what looks to be an engaging cast, and possibly our first line up (even for three person core team), without a white male in the line up. I suspect the comedy relief security guards are going to get old VERY quickly... probably faster than Victor and Monty in Ninja Steel, which is REALLY saying something.

Oops, late addition which as token Brit I should probably mention, the next Pokemon games; Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield. will be based in Galar, a Pseudo-British locale (In much the same way as Alolah is Hawaiian I guess).
