An Argument for an Awesome Age of Adult Animation

An Argument for an Awesome Age of Adult-Focused Animation [Opinion]

Something kind of sad happened in March when the new Hellboy movie tried to raise a ruckus and blast its way into cinemas, yet barely managed to limp its way out the door. The movie cost about $50 million to make, which isn't terrible by modern budget standards in movies, but it only made $40 […]

By Dylan Gonzalez Beer: Old Ruffian Barley Wine-Style Ale Brewery: Great Divide Brewing Co. ABV: 10.2% I returned to the mountains of Colorado for this week's edition of Booze Geek.

Discussions With Scott Allie – Fight Club2 Release Date, Frankenstein Underground, Lady Killer, Past Aways, Ei8ht, The Goon, Rebels, Rat God, And Even More (UPDATE)

We've known as far back as San Diego Comic-Con 2014 that the Spring of 2015 was going to be particularly significant for Dark Horse, releasing Ei8ht, Past Aways, Frankenstein Underground, Rebels, and more. There was a particular emphasis at that time on the ways in which Dark Horse has always been built around a "creator-owned" […]

Big Trouble In Little China: Big Fun In Licensed Comic

By Jared Cornelius I remember a time when licensed comics were absolutely terrible.  Hot garbage like Alf, Mr. T, and WCW comic books helped put a black eye on potentially fun licensed series.  Often poorly written, with little thought or effort seemingly put into them, licensed books were often a sure sign of a stinker to be steered clear of.  That's not to say that all licensed […]

Steve Mannion's Fearless Dawn Is Underground Comics Meets Classic Sci-Fi

I got a chance to read Fearless Dawn: In Outer Space by Steve Mannion thanks to publisher Frank Forte of Asylum Press. I'm not going to talk about the plot of the book because the truth is the plot is not really what matters here. The important thing is both the writing and the art […]

30 Second Teaser For Film of Eric Powell's The Goon

I love zombies, like Blur studio and Paul Giamatti, and I'm waiting for somebody to lend me some Goon comics to read so I can get into them, too, but I'm not sure this teaser trailer has me quite convinced about the feature film. It's just… so… normal. Luckily for me, it's just a trailer […]
