You walk away with an Eisner Award, and it says something very straight-forward: you are one talented SOB. Given the lofty level of competition across virtually every category, the level at which you are performing professionally is a few strides beyond exceptional.
As a kid, Clue was our family go-to come holiday seasons. It’s just what we did, and I think for the most part, we all enjoyed it quite a bit. The board game definitely has a place in my heart. And IDW’s new book seems as though it may quickly win real estate there, as well.
Alterna Comics is a new discovery for me, but they’ve got a slick looking lineup of books that I’m excited to explore in the near future. Chief among the books to pique my curiosity is Mr. Crypt, a promising little piece crafted by Troy Vevasis and Aleksandar Jovic.

In 1980, a little known, little seen film about a Summer Stock Theater Company in 1951, starring Frank Langella, (DRACULA) Thomas Hulce ,(ANIMAL HOUSE, AMADEUS) and Glynis O’Conner (ODE TO BILLY JOE- what the hell happened to her?) with an interesting title that has stuck with me as clear as a bell for 37 years THOSE LIPS, THOSE EYES opened to better than average press.

When it comes to the strange, dark world of fiction, Dark Horse Comics is one of the few publishers out there that constantly impress and constantly work at expanding and offering new refreshing titles.

While he won’t be jumping behind the cameras, as we all wish he would, John Carpenter is still very heavily involved in horror. He’s an established and respected musician. He’s said to have wizard-like skills that he applies while gaming for hours on end. He’s also written some awesome comics along the way, and he’s doing it again. John Carpenter’s Tales of Science Fiction is the legend’s latest project, and you’ll be able to pick it up on July 26th.
There are some stellar books seeing release by Dark Horse this week, so you should be preparing to dip into the wallet. Among the standout new arrivals are American Gods #1 and Dead Inside #4.
Here’s the scoop on each book:

I’ve been posting quite a bit of my 20/20 series of T.V.F.T.T.P. because there’s mucho buried treasure at your fingertips, I want to make sure you folks are taking advantage of.
I have to submit this review, because A) I had the glorious opportunity to visit the local cinema (my church), B) A film opened over the weekend that is not only top of the line in its genre, and C) it is top of the line AND easily the best 2017 cinematic offering so far, period.
