LAND OF THE GIANTS-Uk Joe 90 comics

JOE 90

 

All of these are in full color. The artwork is some of the best ever for LAND OF THE GIANTS, much better than the art for the Gold Key comics and the British annuals and TV COMIC. The characters are intact and the Spindrift looks great! Most like the TV show. Every Wednesday a new issue. Two pages each week devoted to LAND OF THE GIANTS which seems to be one of the only shows in full color (although STAR TREK had one color issue on its two pages). Clearly in England, LOG was most popular!

Night in the forest--Mark is chased into a small caved in drain pipe by a hat
wearing giant named Inspector Swann, who had him once before and did horrible
things. The giant uses a lighter to nearly burn Mark out. When Mark won't

Mark to his arrow and fires it!

watches. Fitzhugh fools Barry into making what he considers an oath. Fitzhugh
assures Barry he will tell the others about the small ship. Wilson calls a
giant named Jack to bring a net--and find out how much the reward for
capturing little people is.

NEW EARTH

I was sort of dreading this one and to be honest, it moved fast and wasn't that dire. Still, it's the weakest story thus far and it still reminds me of ...hold for it...TIME AND THE RANI and despite my recent reviewing of that horrid story and my moving it further down from the top of the worst DW stories ever, it's still...not a good thing to be like. Here we have a female villain who fakes that she's one of the companions (this time by being in the same body and I have to confess to laughing as some of the humor such as "I'm a chav" and "chavtastic" which I didn't understand the first time I viewed this; i now know what a chav is). We have a brain! We do? We have bodies in cubicles. We aliens that resemble another life form. ANd at times, we have the Doctor not quite himself.

Moore Bond in Doctor Who?

According to various news outlets, veteran James Bond actor, Roger Moore has been quoted saying that he would be available to guest star in Doctor Who after learning of his fellow Bond star, Timothy Dalton appearing in the series later this year. 

Timothy Dalton stepped into the James Bond role after Roger Moore left the starring role in ironic spy action film series in 1987.

Moore is quoted in saying, "I believe Timothy is to appear in one of the new episodes, so if they ever want anyone to play his dad, I'm available."

In the clutches of the Master

Well, the Dear Husband, the TARDIS and I made the trip successfully from Denver to Atlanta and set the TARDIS up next to the Grand Ballroom on the third floor of the Sheraton.

I was all prepared to stay and ride herd on her until Billy showed up and insisted that I go along to the Eric Roberts panel with him.

The lovely DH agreed to watch over the TARDIS, so I went.

When we got there, I shared with Billy how I'd tried twice earlier that day to get Eric Roberts autograph and had not been successful due to Eric's un-explained absence.

Billy then shared with me his curse-- he'd tried to see Eric Roberts three times before and each time, Eric had cancelled at the last minute.

He was pretty sure Eric Roberts was once again not coming.

We were entertained by the lovely Lars Pierson of Mad Norwegian Press fame while we waited.
