    Where'd you get the coloured edition of that picture?

    You mean Paradise Lost or the one that's in the article? I'm sure I've seen several colourised versions of the former, or maybe they were hallucinations of mine. I don't know what the other image is so, heh, perhaps it has always been in colour.

    Let me look around my books.

    It's also Paradise Lost. I've never been able to find a coloured version of that...But I'd appreciate you telling me if you find one.

    I'd be surprised if there were colour version of this style of illustration, though that said I did find a colour version of the print I used for the banner advertisement here. The light and dark of an uncoloured carving works well, I think, with the light and dark imagery of the poem's narrative, and also with the intricate style of the lines. But William Blake took a very different style, and his were in colour.

    I can't find the image in my book. But I know I've seen a coloured version of it before. Perhaps online somewhere? I'll check Digg or something, I don't know where else I would have come across retouched images like that.

    Argh!!

    Probably online. I found one too, but it's the one where Satan is moaning against the boulder.

    I coloured it in m'self, like a child attacking a book with crayons.

    How rude of me! I forgot to say "Good work." Good work, Gabez! :)
  • The Tingler on 15 Apr, 2008, 06:41…
    Oh, thanks. Thanks a lot.

    You get that REGARDLESS! You're Mojo's Shakespeare! We'll even collect your posts and publish them as The Comments and then throw them at gullible scholars to determine whether you were trying to seduce The Dark Lady Jason or the Fair Youth jp-30. :P
  • The Tingler on 15 Apr, 2008, 15:20…
    That's better! ;)
  • The Tingler on 17 Apr, 2008, 21:31…
    And it's both, obviously.
  • Kroms on 14 Apr, 2008, 21:13…
    Oh I see. Hmm.
  • jp-30 on 14 Apr, 2008, 21:09…
    How spoilerey is it?
  • Gabez on 14 Apr, 2008, 21:10…
    I don't know, I haven't read it.
  • Capn_Nacho on 14 Apr, 2008, 21:16…
    Not very. Plot points are referenced in an acceptably oblique manner.
  • jp-30 on 14 Apr, 2008, 21:26…
    Thanks, I'll venture a peek.
  • The Tingler on 14 Apr, 2008, 21:43…
    Yeah, I absolutely DETEST reviews that spoiler things.

    I do mention a few things, but I don't spoil anything that will ruin your enjoyment of the game. Promise.
  • neon_git on 15 Apr, 2008, 00:44…
    To be honest you could put in some of the major spoilers and most people would assume you're taking the piss.
  • Capn_Nacho on 15 Apr, 2008, 20:56…
    Ain't that the truth. This episode's biggest twist is pretty off-the-wall, even though I can see how one might have seen it coming.
  • Sp0tted on 14 Apr, 2008, 23:12…
    ... the game has been out for several days. If you don't want to be spoiled, play it the day it comes out. Otherwise, don't bitch about it, it's your fault for not being on ball.

    /My pet peeve is people going to review sites, reading a review, and complaining about spoilers. LIVE IN A CAVE UNTIL YOU CAN CATCH UP TO THE REST OF THE WORLD.

    I get what you mean, but there have been times that I haven't had the opportunity to play an S&M episode for a few days (because of homework, etc) and have had them spoiled for me by reviews. I think it's kind of bad writing to give away major plot points in a piece targeted at people who most likely haven't even bought the game yet. Tingler did a good job here.

    My pet peeve would have to be when IGN gives spoilers in their reviews posted the day the game comes out on GameTap. Now that's bad journalism.
