Shawn and Tom consider the legacy of Alan Moore as he prepares to leave comics forever(?); Shawn sings the praises of Outhouser Jude Terror for speaking truth to power; nobody puts Valiant in the corner except the Harvey Awards; 2000AD know that Tom Shapira exists and are republishing old British comics just for him; and the prospect of a Stan Lee Superspy film raises questions about history versus fiction.

We also review Doom Patrol #1, Eclipse #1, Glitterbomb #1, and Christopher Baldwin’s recently-completed webcomic Anna Galactic.
