More From Marvel!

Wednesday 6th January


‘Darkness’ – Human League


Today, I was, as is usual, rather unimpressed with College.  But Graham came into see us.  Danny – who I’m spending a lot of time with – bought some Marvel comics and we read two excellent issues of The Mighty Thor (up against my favourite Marvel concept: The Celestials)…

…one issue of X-Factor (a ‘new’ X-Men team featuring the original ‘60s X-Men – including Jean Grey who appears to be alive again.  Which kind of dilutes the ‘Phoenix Saga’…)…

and an issue of Iron Man. 

A bit immature of us, but it’s winter escapism.  Hah!  I also bought a 2000AD, and the ‘ABC Warriors’ are back, which is great! 

This was alongside some very few hours revising for my mocks.


In TS, we started work on Carrie with some group improvisation.  The concept excites me a great deal.


Back in Wisbech, I went to the Library to try and find the address or telephone number of Marrick Priory, for a holiday for Flash + I.  I only found failure.  A holiday there may have to be forgotten.  If so, Flash and I should book into a B + B in Askrigg, I suppose…
