Grimm Tales of Terror #2 - Fantastically Creepy Tales!

Grimm Tales of Terror #2 - Fantastically Creepy Tales! @Zenescope @ShanePMcKenzie

Grimm Tales of Terror is Zenoscope’s new anthology horror series, serving up spooky stories, Tales of the Crypt-style.

Grimm Tales of Terror #2 - Fantastically Creepy Tales!

The format is familiar and intuitive to horror readers. We get a sub-story that features our narrator: a nameless red-headed female that I’m going to assume, from the cover of Issue 2, is a grim reaper of sorts. Her appearances bookend the comic as she serves comeuppance to…

DayBlack - A Vampire Tattoo Artist Tries to Remember How to Live

DayBlack - A Vampire Tattoo Artist Tries to Remember How to Live @KEEFCROSS #GoBuyComics

Tattoo art is one of the most meaningful types of art. For people who decide to decorate their skin it is rarely done without deep thought as to what it will say, look like and what the meaning behind it truly is. There’s often two meanings, the ones we share with the random stranger who can’t resist asking and the one we hold closer to our hearts that only we and maybe our nearest and dearest…

The Quest For Comissioned Art Reveals A Talented Average Joe!

The Quest For Comissioned Art Reveals A Talented Average Joe! @AverageJoeArt @ReggieMantleIII

Over the course of the past year, I have watched my fascination, interest, and love of art grow. I have to immediately thank Kyle Petznick for encouraging me to pursue it as a collector and for teaching me of the importance of owning original and custom art. Since October of 2013, I had seriously begun contemplating getting a commission done, yet was unsure how to go about it and of who I’d get…

"Into the Dalek" Takes Us Into the Twelfth Doctor - Spoilery Recap!

"Into the Dalek" Takes Us Into the Twelfth Doctor - Spoilery Recap! @DoctorWho_BBCA #Doctorwhoseries8

p025byzdAs River Song says “Spoilers Sweetie”. If you haven’t watched “Into the Dalek” yet, you might want to reconsider reading this until after you have. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

If you liked “Deep Breath” last week (and I did), then you probably also liked this week’s “Into the Dalek” episode of Doctor Who(and I did). Steven Moffat and Phil Ford have found an astounding new way to tell a Dalek…

The Riddle of a Familiar Face - Doctor Who Season 8 Questions & Theories

Via wn.com

On some level, Whovians knew the Doctor Who creative team had to address the fact that Peter Capaldi’s been on the show before. He’s been on Torchwood, too, but his character of John Frobisher never met the Doctor, so it’s not quite as much of an elephant in the room. But in the third episode of season four, the Doctor saved Lucius Caecilius from “Volcano Day” in Pompeii, which…

Review - City of Walls #1 - A Book About Heroes

via http://www.redstylo.com

I love books that have meaning. That being said I can’t stand books that try to have meaning. If you write a story with heart, with passion, and the art follows in kind, you will have a book with meaning. It may not be rocket science, honestly it’s magic. At this moment I have about 25 books in the process of being reviewed (being read, waiting for art, in editorial,…

We Don’t Just Read: Introducing “What’cha Watching”! @HBO @Cinemax @netflix @MTVteenwolf

Like most self-respecting Americans, the What’cha Readingstaff doesn’t only spend a lot of time reading, we spend a lot of time watching TV and movies, too. These days even before the fall season hits network TV, some old favorites have returned for another season and some great new shows have taken off. And of course we’re constantly watching past episodes of our favorite shows on streaming and…

Preview/Review Prometheus Fire & Stone #1 - On Sale 9/10/14 @PaulTobin @DarkHorseComics

Preview/Review Prometheus Fire & Stone #1 - On Sale 9/10/14I have always been open-minded about the possibility of aliens. The universe is just so big and ever-expanding that it would be almost impossible to calculate and quantify the possibility of their existence. I know better men such as Carl Sagan and Isaac Asimov have tried and have also been light years more eloquent than me. However, I do feel there is quite a validity in the concept of aliens,…

Annie Bonnie! The All-Ages High-Seas Adventure! @BlueJuiceComics @YatesComics #GoBuyComics

Another great comic con purchase! I walked by the table at Asbury Park Comic Con and the cover caught my eye immediately. Female pirate walking into the camera, pistols drawn, cutlass on her hip. Why was it eye-catching? Well there’s a girl on the cover… And she’s dressed.

That alone was enough to give Tim Yates book a shot. Glad I did! In issue 1 “The Journey Begins” we’re introduced to a world…

I love when books like this are announced. I don’t know half the things out there that have a following (it’s truly impossible to even try) but when something like this surfaces you get to take a look completely out of context and try to figure out the appeal…

The work is striking and beautifully drawn, but to say that I can make heads or tails of what’s going on in these pages, well that would…
