THE OCTOBER SPEAKEASY: COMICS SPECIAL!
We love comics. We read comics. And in this edition of the Speakeasy, we talk about comics. At length.
We review the best new books that The Dice Of Fate allowed us to look at in Spetember, and take an extensive look at the career and works of Frank Miller: the good, the bad and the very, very ugly.
Plus we amp up the geeky with a D100 and generally do what we do. Read along, whydoncha?

In our Fifty Second Flash Film Fest, we cram nine film reviews into under 8 minutes.
Clive gives us the lowdown on no-budget film-making, and shares some behind the scenes stories on his latest short, Acceptance.
Of course, we have all the recommendations for movies to see this month, and a heads-up for the greatest horror film festival on the planet: Frightfest!
Simon Aitken’s Modern Love: Contribute here!
As ever, if you have any comments or suggestions, let us know. Let’s keep the love flowing in both directions. Rivers of love. Tidal in nature.
