With the discovery of an Alliance portal on the derelict ship, questions have arisen about whether the monks of the monastery on Requiem are as on the level as we’ve been led to believe. Meanwhile, with Simon volunteering as hostage in order to save the people in the monastery, things seem to be going pretty south. Oh, and Owen triggered a bomb that blew up the derelict ship after he entered it…
WhatNot Publishing is breathing life into an already popular property, as they are bringing the web series, Alpha Betas, into comics form. After getting millions of views on the video platform, YouTube, Evan "VanossGaming" Fong, Marcel "BasicallyIDoWrk" Cunningham, Tyler "I AM WILDCAT" Wine, and Brian "Terroriser" Hanby have teamed up to produce the mini-series based on the animated show of same name.
It’s been nearly two years since I reviewed the first volume of Adventureman. While I remember the basic story, I was a bit fuzzy on some of the details. So, before embarking on this new graphic novel, I took it upon myself to reread the first volume and be sure I was up to speed. No easy task, to be sure, but I did it for you, dear reader. I made that sacrifice for you. (Truth be told, I probably could have just jumped right into the new volume and been fine, but it was as good an excuse as any to reread one of the most fun comics I’ve read in a long time.)
Every so often, a graphic novel comes along, rips through your psyche, and leaves a nice, little mark, ensuring you’ll never forget it. The Night Eaters: She Eats the Night (Book 1) is that for me. A beautiful, horrific tale of love, parental guidance, and a family learning to come together under the strangest of circumstances.
If you’ve been following the exploits of our merry band of heroes so far, suffice it to say that no summary I can write will do any modicum of justice to the sheer wackiness of the previous 29 issues. Alas, all good things must come to an end, and with Issue #30, Once & Future takes its final bow.
In a future that might be our own, an unknown race a million light years away signals for help while sending along the plans for something called forge gate technology. This technology will allow us to travel light years away from Earth (through a series of jumps) in the hope that we will eventually arrive at this unknown destination (a.k.a. The Terminus). (Think Stargate.)
Did you know that there’s an official, DC-sanctioned, Batman audio drama series? It’s been out for a whole year, but nobody is talking about it, and I can’t understand why. Not only has it got a stellar cast with a whole bunch of big names, it’s also some of the best Batman content I’ve ever seen/heard. And the only way I found it was by accident, combing through the copious DC-related content on HBO Max. So, let me introduce you to Batman: The Audio Adventures. Because you need this show in your life.
In a nutshell, Night of the Ghoul is a horror story wrapped up in a noir thriller about one man’s quest to learn the truth about what happened to “the greatest horror movie of the era.” Meeting the long-lost director of the film about the eponymous ghoul, he begins to learn about the horrors of the past, as well as the precarious nature of his present, and the doom of his future. As far as age appropriateness goes, this issue fell in that X-Files/Twilight Zone-kinda area, so use your own discretion.
In 2008, an unknown director named Damien Leone released a short film titled "The 9th Circle" which introduced Art the Clown, played by Mike Gianelli. Art came back for another short in 2011 called "Terrifier," then again in 2013 for the anthology, All Hallows Eve. Despite these appearances, it seemed Art was doomed to obscurity until 2016, when Leone brought a revamped, scarier Art to life, with actor David Howard Thornton behind the mask. This switch-up was all that Leone needed. In a 2018 limited release, the horror community quickly discovered the feature-length Terrifier after Dread Central took a chance on the film. Within no time at all, Terrifier became a cult classic and Art the Clown, a slasher legend. Today, fans are gearing up for the second in a forever iconic franchise. But if you’re looking for Art the Clown 2.0 in Terrifier 2, you won’t find him here. This is version 6.66.
