I love comics. (Surprise! Or not.) I love all kinds of comics. And that includes material published by Viz, Vertical, Yen Press… Oh dear. I must mean… manga.

I love horror movies. Hell, I edit a monster magazine; it’s kind of a prerequisite. But I’ve been leaning more towards Sci-Fi films lately, and I think it’s because mainstream horror movies have kind of sucked. I’m not saying that to be an indignant old curmudgeon.

Ray Fawkes is the horror guru who’s been behind CONSTANTINE for a good while now, and this week DC released its FUTURE’S END issue—a fun one-off that takes place five years in John Constantine’s future but plays out like any of his present supernatural encounters, albeit with a new companion holding the regular humans at [...]

THE LIFE AFTER #2 (Oni): The first issue of Josh Fialkov and Gabo’s THE LIFE AFTER was one of the best first issues I’d read in a while—a twist on purgatory guest-starring Ernest Hemingway and some mysterious figures. But this one? Whole different ballgame. Hemingway’s still around for comic relief, but there are also tentacle [...]
