Now comes word that Universal Pictures has set an official release date for the trilogy-maker, reserving the September 6, 2013 spot. [...]

Release Date: December 19, 2012
Cover Price: $2.99

The Black Beetle: Night Shift #0 is all set up and all AWESOME! Let's be honest, there's plenty of pulp heroes running around these days, but The Black Beetle is all sorts of fun. No downbeat, depressing, down on humanity story here, just some fantastic action and adventure!

Writer Francesco Francavilla really surprises me by turning out a really good comic book. NO, not the art, that's a given, what I was impressed so much by was the story. This seems like a story that Francavilla's had cooking for a while and one that he was desperate to tell, because you, the reader, can plainly feel the love and hard work that he put into every single page, panel, and line of dialogue. Everything is well thought out and it combines the 1940's spirit of high adventure with the mystery man/superhero genre. There's also a FEW running mysteries throughout the issue, which makes it that much more enjoyable to read. This issue is definitely a page-turner and by the end you won't be able to wait for the next issue! [...]

Franco Nero in Django Image

It's always exciting for fans of western movie genre to see a new movie like Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained being buzzed about, primarily because we just don't see new western films nearly as often as we would all like to.

Westerns were everywhere back in the day, even sprouting sub-genres like the spaghetti western. The best known spaghetti western was and is Sergio Leone's Man with No Name trilogy, of course, which starred Clint Eastwood. But there's many other great spaghetti westerns to enjoy, one of which being the 1966 film Django. [...]

Over the weekend, select IMAX 3D screenings of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (read FamousMonster's review here) are being prefaced by an extended preview for Star Trek Into Darkness. I have seen the nine-minute preview and am prepared to offer my thoughts, but first a lengthy recap.


First off, there are no further revelations as to the identity of the character played by Benedict Cumberbatch. The studio and director J.J. Abrams say his name is John Harrison so for now let us call him...John Harrison. Yes, that will do nicely. [...]

Comic Review: Mortifera

Mortifera #1

Written By Stephan Frost

Sea Lion Books
Release Date: November 7, 2012
Cover Price: $2.99

Hundreds of years ago a horde of demons were unleashed upon Europe. The Demonic Plague wreaked all sorts of biblical havoc on the people. This era is better known as the Dark Ages in our history books. An army of humans called the Exturminata was raised to take out the demons. Another group, the Mortifera, also formed to fight back the demon horde. However, they were widely considered heretics given their practice of conversing with the dead and other occulty shit. The combined forces of the Exturminata and Mortifera managed to fight and defeat the demons and, decades later, have become complacent.

The blood of demons is highly valuable in these times. It's indestructible and, when combined with the proper ritual, can be used to summon a demon to do your bidding. Elias Gregor, the leader of the Mortifera sought to mitigate the dangerous demon blood by storing it in the Demon Keep. Kanisus, the leader of the Demonic Plague, sees an opportunity to take advantage of the humans' complacency and raids the Keep. [...]

Rejoice! ‘Game Of Thrones’ Beer On Its Way To You In Time For Season 3

Game of Thrones, Tyrion Image

It's nearly impossible to watch HBO's Game of Thrones without getting hungry or thirsty for some good old medieval fare, and even harder to do so while reading George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" book series.

There are plenty of related cookbooks and recipes for those of us desperate enough to eat the way the people of Westeros eat, and most of the drink is readily available in reality. But, when it comes to beer specifically, fans will soon have the option of picking up some Game of Thrones themed suds. [...]
