Finally Daredevil season 3 has arrived - I just hope there's more to come as weekend was soured by the announcement that both Power Man (I mean Luke Cage ) and Iron Fist aren't up for a third season -then I thought about it -perhaps we'll be getting Power Man and Iron Fist all in one like the classic comic series -that would make sense or a Heroes for Hire series -I hope that's the case trying to be optimistic here . but back to DD -Vince Ruled as The Kingpin -George Dawes knows the score... he should smile more
But its this guy Dex -the stuff of nightmares (and I did have nightmares about his character as a kid )-lets just say he's Judge Death to Daredevils Judge Dredd -if there's no season 4 that's just daft much more on target than the 90's movie -got the right guy to play him this time... but wanna see Matt back in red suit or at least the yellow one -Dex was great new addition to cast Deborah's lovely -we do get more of a insight into her character Karen Page although not as I expected -it doesn't follow Born Again directly more inspired by it ..Foggy's perfectly cast too -face and mannerisms totally fits that character -Agent Nadeem was another welcome addition his story is a fascinating journey that runs parallel .to the conflict between Kingpin & DD -also cool to see Joanne Whalley as Sister Maggie -saw her star in a 80's drama the other week on youtube with Phil Daniels (Jimmy the Mod) My only complaint really is no Elektra -she really brown bread now? she seemed to be forgotten about after episode 1 unless Matt grieved her the first time -maybe she'll be back -
But what next -if there is a next -perhaps a story based on Brian Micheal Bendis The Murdock Papers - Matt winding up in the klink with Kingpin & Bullseye -that would be something.
Arts ok with me -kind of dank colours -but its Daredevil so bleak streets about right -I do wish he'd hook up with Widow that's a important part of Daredevils life.. doubt we'll see it though - Avengerworld and Netflix needs to bridged somehow... then there's another fine writer whose stories would work well on TV-That would be Ed as I liked his run on Captain America.
Maybe DD's world will intersect with Punnisher's or Jessica's - can't wait for those shows to land in 2019

Of course theres plenty of other content on playlist too including Sonic Yoof a very heavy essay about Situanionists , Fever Tree , a really cool documentary about the Blues -Martin and Francis , Jenny Hill , Old Skool British wrestling Comic Legends , Ultra Man ,Western starring Fonda,Widmark & Quinn Garage and Surf from Beyond the Iron Curtain plenty of Maurice Mickelwright and the Best Nirvana and MC5 tributes in recent times - just a couple of things I''ve missed alot - doubt you'll watch them at least its here as some kind of testament to how randomly cool the world could be but aint (just yet) It'll outlive me - I suggest adblocker- and whats algorithm anyhow?-Its wise to keep an eye on that mind control shite,

A live action Bo Katan and Sabine here's hoping... 10 hours worth of Mando history unfolding I'm looking forward to it-
Still lots of Resistance against Resistance it seems -which is a pity as it hasn't even kicked off -different style to Clone Wars and Rebels sure- but those ship designs are awesome - it's aimed at younglings but at 46 I'm still a youngling at heart so we'll see if it is as good as it's predecessors got to give it time -glad Clone Wars is returning - I reckon people should at least give this show a chance before been doomsayers- plenty to whinge about in the real world -dig this stuff as it's a escape from dumbsville.- it's getting worse that place called reality.
Kinda Thunderbirds 2086 and Battle of the Planets in a Star Wars galaxy as long as it aint too corny and you care about characters it should do alright and besides I've got faith in Dave .
This game also makes me wonder about ancestors who did make it to the West- the Gilmours -the Murphys - bound to be some O'Hagan's out there too -I'm glad there's a Mount Hagen in this game named after Ross who provided voice for Landon Ricketts I'm sure there were other offshoots but my Uncle Brian when I was four or five bought me a Fort for Christmas including figurines of Paul Revere -Davy Crockett hat guys and War of Independence era soldiers - I miss him and Dad both died too young - but maybe that's why I like Fallout 4 so much as it deals with that period of history (kind of)- lots of history hidden from me - I've been watching show about earliest pioneers of America (Ray Mears How West was Won) worth investigating if you want to see how North America came to be what it is.-
Sometimes I wonder if you want the truth you gotta look to the past- not the so called victors truth but the truth as it happened or as close as you can get to it - in my mind the truth wins out it's the absolute rule of things so the people who think they're winning now are nothing in the eyes of the good minds of tomorrow -gotta end on a poignant note been a rotten week but things will rock again once the trash is gone.-lets hope it's soon!...
ooh b4 I forget -DD season 3 very soon :D

Carlos most famous creation has to be Judge Dredd -who's endured for over 40 years as 2000ads top lawman -I don't speak Spanish but included this vid as it features the first Judge Dredd story to be drawn The Bank Job from 1976-it didn't appear till early 80's in a annual + he's back home in ZaragozaI've featured Interview with Carlos & John Wagner before on this blog when The Strontium Dog fan film came out but I will include videos the characters and worlds he has created
Johnny Alpha and The Strontium Dogs are possibly the second most famous Ezquerra creations -if Mega City One tv show gets off the ground I hope we see Johnny and Wulf turn up.
but it's the jump to computer coloured art that impressed me the most-he had the guts to do that -other artists tried but then go back to paint or rely on other colourists -but Carlos kept at it and mastered it made it look an expressive form -I used to be anti computer colour believe it or not -but he showed endless possibility -once I attempted it became fun and unlimited but here's my tribute to Carlos and his tribute to Steve Dillon -really massive scan hope it uploads
