  1. Crikey, mates. Yah attempt at an Aussie accent was bloody funny, cobber. I laughed so much I was tuckered out and needed a glass of liquid gold. Bonza!

    I say, chaps. You attempting an Australian accent was rather amusing, my friends. I laughed so much I was exhausted and required a glass of beer. Excellent!

    Thirty minutes on one page must be a new Subs record, but I agree that it’s a page that needs discussing. I remember reading it back when it came out and the fact the Ayla and Vi were living together was not a blip on my radar. it just seemed natural. I also loved Jo’s use of ultra-sarcasm when exposed to the “sadistic trading cards”.

    Also – loved issue 1 of the new series!

  2. Hi guys,

    Loved the explanation of SW6, as a native of Fulham myself I’d long wondered if it was a reference to the borough. It’ll give me one more reason to smile when on trips ‘home’ in future to see the footie (Chelsea FC). Please don,t call it soccer lol.

    Good news about the 5yl omni :-).
    Keep up the good work with the podcast.
    Cheers

  3. Ooh, Trevor wins the prize for being closest. I can only claim SW8 as my locale.

    A little bit of trivia regarding Superman and the destruction of the moon. The four part mini Armageddon Inferno, issue 3 has Superman and friends being transported to a devastated area of Earth on the day after the Luna explosion. It has no other Legion connection but at least Supes gets to see the consequences of his 2995 visit. (The mini is pretty awful but it does have the one redeeming value in that it got the JSA out of Limbo).

    Ayla and Vi and the non-declaration of their relationship. It shouldn’t need commenting on, but it kinda does. It stinks of the old “Ferro Lad can’t be black as distributors in the South won’t like it” excuse.
    So it’s a good thing that they don’t make a thing of it, because it shouldn’t need to be a thing. But in 1991 I get that LGBT people should have had an acknowledgement and I don’t like the (probable) actual reason why they didn’t make it a thing.
    Does any of that make sense?
