Love Hurts

My theory is that Hurt is the Ninth Doctor, the one who ended the Time War, and because of his actions the others would like to forget about him and count Eccleston's incarnation as the Ninth. Sort of like Pope John XX only with time travel.

Free Comic Book Day

Well, this is unexpected. It is Free Comic Book Day tomorrow and I wouldn't mention it here except that this year I'm involved, sort of. If you go to Forbidden Planet London, Gosh or Orbital Comics tomorrow, you can pick up a free copy of The O Men #2.5, which included a page drawn by me.
