Phantom Stranger v2 #19 - Neal Adams cover

Neal Adams Phantom Stranger v2 #19, 1972 - Arctic explorers happen upon one of the their own, completely encased in ice. Meanwhile, an enormous hand reaches for its next victim. Not one of Neal Adams' better covers on the series, the men essentially all share the same expression. Note how the figure on the left is drawn by Jim Aparo, the story artist inside. The cover is also oddly laid out, [Author: Ted Ignacio]

Ran and the Gray World Volume 1

Ran and the Gray World by Aki Irie contains some classic fantasy genre ideas, but the overall tone is unfocused with a touch of creepy. Ran is a magical little girl who appears as a well-developed young woman when she dons a special pair of tennis shoes. Her absent mother temporarily returns in a cloud of magical cakes, with everything too much, showing us where both Ran’s potential for power and her lack of discipline come from. Her older brother [...]

Ghost In The Shell 2 – Man Machine Interface Manga Review

Ghost In The Shell 2 – Man Machine Interface is the 2nd manga sequel to Shirow Masamune’ groundbreaking comic Ghost In The Shell ( the 1st being Ghost In The Shell 1.5 – Human Error Processor ).

‘Stranger Things 3’ Episode Titles Revealed, But What Do They Mean?

Stranger Things 3 interrupted everyone’s Sunday night to announce all of the episode titles for the upcoming third season hitting Netflix sometime in 2019.

Super Heroes Say Please

Given that superheroes began as examples of those who could bring justice, it’s fun to see the Super Friends versions used for moral instruction. Super Heroes Say Please by Morris Katz is a 20-page board book for ages 0-3 about manners. Uncredited clip art shows classically illustrated heroes being polite and kind. They introduce themselves, shake hands, say please when they need help, take turns, share, and compliment each other. It was odd for me to notice just how many [...]

PETA “Anti-Speciesism” Language Guide Memed Marvellously

PETA has apparently not been getting enough attention recently as one of their latest tweets informed readers on how they can avoid “speciesism” in normal conversation, a point of discussion probably spawned solely to get more people looking their way (like their previous stunts) – though it soon backfired into mass-memed ridicule. The official PETA […]

Bird, Bath, and Beyond

E.J. Copperman’s Bird, Bath, and Beyond, the sequel to Dog Dish of Doom, is even better than the first. The mystery stars Kay Powell, theatrical agent for acting animals. She’s now repping a parrot who’s a supporting cast member of a TV procedural, playing the sidekick of a medical examiner on a show with zombie detectives. When the gorgeous actor playing the doctor is found dead, shot, in his trailer, under the cage, the real-life detectives expect a talking bird [...]

‘Umbrella Academy’ Trailer: Six Adopted Kids Have to Stop the Global Apocalypse

If the X-Men franchise has been disappointing you in recent years, maybe you’ll take solace in a different kind of mutant superhero story that has flares of Watchmen, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children and Atomic Blonde all mixed together. Umbrella Academy, based on the comic book series created and written by Gerard Way , is a new series coming to Netflix in February, and the first trailer has just arrived with some 1980s pop music to usher in the story about a group of adopted misfi...

Jace Pearson's Tales of the Texas Rangers v1 #15, 1957 - Alex Toth's back-up story chronicles one of the founding fathers of Texas, Stephen Fuller Austin.

‘Suspiria’ Featurette Examines the Remake’s Gruesome Make-Up Effects

Luca Guadagnino‘s polarizing Suspiria is chock-full of memorable (and often gruesome) make-up effects. Now that the film has been out for a bit, Amazon has released a new Suspiria featurette devoted to exploring the techniques used to create such authentic-looking special effect make-up.

‘House That Jack Built’ Director’s Cut Release Pushed to 2019 Because IFC Dared to Defy the MPAA

Oh, IFC Films. Now you’ve gone and done it. After failing to get the appropriate waiver to screen the unrated The House That Jack Built director’s cut last week, IFC Films is now pushing the official release date back a few months. The House That Jack Built director’s cut release was originally set for next week, but this MPAA kerfuffle has bumped Lars von Trier‘s controversial serial killer flick into June of 2019.

Weird Movie of the Week

Last time on Weird Movie of the Week, we saw an Enraged Lycanthrope. In searching for 2018 movies I'd like to catch up with soon, one of the films I came across sounded interesting: Lobster Cop. No, it's not about a cop who is also a lobster, unfortunately, but it does have a pretty weird premise: Four police officers open up a lobster restaurant as a cover in order to catch a notorious drug dealer, only to find their secret recipe is more popular than they expect. When they get caught up in the...

Hayden Christensen in Trailer for Sci-Fi Action Thriller 'The Last Man'

"We must prepare for the worst of humanity." Lionsgate has launched a trailer for an indie sci-fi action film titled The Last Man, which is pretty much the opposite (in every way) from this year's film The First Man. From director Rodrigo H. Vila, the film stars Hayden Christensen (wait, he's still starring in films?) as a war veteran with post traumatic stress disorder who perceives that the end of the world is coming. After establishing a relationship with a dubious Messiah, he leaves his ...

Margot Robbie and Saoirse Ronan star in “Mary Queen of Scots”

Margot Robbie stars as Queen Elizabeth I and Saoirse Ronan stars as Mary Stuart in “Mary Queen of Scots,” a new Focus Features release. “Mary Queen of Scots” explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart along with her rivalry with Queen Elizabeth. Robbie has been taking on some challenging roles so it will be interesting to see how she portrays the iconic Queen Elizabeth.
