I've said it many times before, but I feel very fortunate to be living in what is this medium's real Golden Age. There may not be a single touchstone work like Maus or Watchmen, but between Scott Pilgrim and Punisher and Fun Home and Fell and Exit Wounds and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and Perry Bible Fellowship and All-Star Superman and Usagi Yojimbo and Ultimate Spider-Man and Tokyopop's Planetes and Acme Novelty Library and Scalped and The Walking Dead and Buffy and Criminal and The Three Paradoxes and Dynamo 5 and Green Lantern and DMZ and Optic Nerve and The Killer and Persepolis and Shaolin Cowboy and Kick-Ass and Super Spy and Queen & Country and Chance in Hell and Abandon the Old in Tokyo and Daredevil... that's seriously just off the very top of my bald head. I've forgotten more good books than I can remember. Has there ever been a better era to be reading comics? Ever?
Subject: Invitation to attend Explosives Awareness Course
In the current climate of global terrorism there is a need for UK-based management-level personnel to be offered exposure to explosives, weapons, bombs and their blast effect and to take part in a live range day.
The outcome of attendance on the course will enable delegates to be better informed about explosives and their effects, together with an enhanced understanding of terrorist use of improvised explosive devices.
Delegates will be better placed to make sound judgment in future management roles or where such experience will aid a decision-making process.
