JP mentioned this comic over on his blog way back in Nov of last year and it did sound like fun. So when I spotted it for only a fiver, well, come on, how could I resist. Despite my quasi-promise to buy “no more stuff”. And I’m really glad I did, because it is just plain fun. With the gothic fantasy and the light-hearted violence.

The book itself is a collection of stories, with very little linking them, apart from the characters. Peculia, who lives with her butler(?), her nemisis and ex(I think) Obscurus, and his henchwoman Justine. Obscurus often sends Justine after Peculia but her plans for capturing Peculia rarely work out as intended.

And have I mentioned that the art work is just great? Cause it is. I’ll have to be on the lookout for more stuff more Sala. Although not for a while. You know, cause of the whole not-buying-stuff deal.

    and you're very right when you describe it as "just plain fun".

    It really does JP doesn't it :)

    I'm very uncertain about our 6 nations campaign; we've a good team but haven't really performed this year. Bad loss to the All Blacks, and very little that inspires confidence. I'm still optimistic though :) and looking forward to my Sat in Croke Park watches us win.

    Don't think Goode is a great choice, but then again I don't really watch a lot of English rugby so its hard to say if anyone else would be better.
