Villains AND time travel?

Outpost, the Op/Ed column over at Broken Voice Comics has fallen behind schedule a little lately but, in an effort to make amends, this week it brings you two slices of wisdom (and at no extra cost!)

Time to believe
"If I could turn back time ..." sang Cher in the 1980s but she couldn't and nor, despite what they believe, can the writers of SciFi or comic fiction. But that hasn't stopped them trying.

Shallow creatures, villains
Meanwhile, not to be outdone, rival power-balladeer Bonnie Tyler would have had us believe she needed a hero. Also false. What mainstream comics are really lacking is a decent villain or two.

You can read more on both of these topics (and without the 80s soundtrack), over in the Outpost section of Broken Voice Comics.
