Lockdown spawns humorous manga CLAMPdown book by Wolf

I am posting this on April Fool's Day. But it is after midday, so all that follows is true. And today is also CLAMP Day. Next year, on 1st April 2022, it may be CLAMP Day 2... or it may not be. It is complicated. A few days ago, I got an email from Ian Wolf. Although that might not be his name. It is complicated.

Ian Wolf writes comedic book about comic book artists

Comedy.co.uk's Ian Wolf, who also works as a manga (Japanese comic) critic, spent lockdown writing a comic (as in "funny") book about his favourite comic (as in "graphic novel") artists, the all-woman group CLAMP, entitled CLAMPdown. Now he is searching for a publisher - by releasing one chapter per year on Twitter (@clampdownbook) until a publisher picks him up, or the entire thing is published online for free. As it stands, this would end in 2038, but it could become longer if CLAMP create any new works during that time.

Taskmaster: Series 8, Episode 6 - review

In this week's edition we learn that one of the biggest elements of Taskmaster is diversity. One point you may be riding high with your ability to remember a deck of cards, the next you are wallowing in misery because when trying to hide yourself you failed to cover your own face.

Only the Taskmaster comes out on top when deceiving.

Taskmaster: Series 8, Episode 4 review

Tonight's episode was a reminder that some of the best moments in Taskmaster come from the most unexpected places. Let's face it, before any of this, who thought you could get laughs by introducing a toddler to tray containing rubber ducks and a thresher shark, in order to teach it about the dangers faced by animals in their natural habitat?
