Let me start by saying that Mark London, Alejandro Giraldo, and Mad Cave Studios did something that I think is brilliant…and should happen in every book of this type.
As Halloween is fast approaching, the Fanbase Press staff and contributors decided that there was no better way to celebrate this horrifically haunting holiday than by sharing our favorite scary stories! Be they movies, TV shows, video games, novels, or anything other form of entertainment, members of the Fanbase Press crew will be sharing their "scariest" stories each day leading up to Halloween. We hope that you will enjoy this sneak peek into the terrors that frighten Fanbase Press!
Not much scares me. It is one of the things that my family finds a little unnerving about me. I can’t be sneaked up on or jumped out at…I won’t flinch and I won’t react.
I love reviewing new comic books . . . first books of new series that are teetering on the brink of either breaking big or breaking bad. There is something special about feeling “in the know” when something is too awesome to keep to yourself.
This is going to come as a surprise to exactly no one. I am a big fan of Doctor Who. A superfan. A -willing-to-pay-way-too-much-money-to-have-a-picture-taken-with-Captain-Jack-Harkness-at-Comikaze fan. But as geeks, most of us are.
I need to preface this with a huge disclaimer: I’m a HUGE fan of Sons of Anarchy. I binge watched the entire series in a few short weeks in order to watch the final season live. Then, I watched it all again, hoping to catch things I missed the first time. Like so many, I exalted when the “real” bad guys got theirs and I felt the pain when the anti-heroes of SAMCRO each went to meet Mr. Mayhem.
The epic pairing of multiple Eisner Award-winning writer Ed Brubaker and Eisner Award-winning artist Sean Phillips, on the heels of their well-received limited series, The Criminal, really went dark with their latest offering from Image, Kill or Be Killed. The pair, who have won Eisners separately and together, were joined by colorist/cover artist Elizabeth Breitweiser to create the story of anti-hero Dylan,whose tumble into self-loathing turns him into an avenging angel.
