    “THE OTHER DEAD” (Comic Review)

    Animals have often been the harbingers of new disease. The Bubonic plague was credited to arriving on the back of rats, while the Bird Flu epidemic pretty much explains itself. With THE OTHER DEAD we are introduced to a brand of animal illness previously only seen in certain type of manipulative parasite: zombies. Instead of the shambling dead hoofing it with the humans, this particular series aims to explore the possibility of a four-legged terror threatening to destroy the known world.  Thick with blood and guts as it is with political and social commentary, THE OTHER DEAD heads in a new direction as it ties together human fear and frailty and its effect on the environment through the collective revolt of the world’s lesser evolved creatures.

    Horror Artist Marc Schoenbach warns the dangers of Halloween with faux vintage ads

    As I’m sure many of you remember, there’s a great moment in HALLOWEEN II (1981) where a young boy named Gary arrives at the hospital with a bloody mouth (a particularly sharp apple, we presume). It’s ghastly and cruel, and removed from the goings on of Michael Myers & Co., reminds us of the scary world out there, bogeyman or no.

    Waking the Old Ones: NecronomiCon Providence 2013

    Over a long, humid weekend, the fourth edition of the H.P. convention known as the NecronomiCon Providence welcomed hundreds of guests, some which came from such far away places as the U.K., California, Toronto, and Abu Dhabi. Organized by the Lovecraft Arts & Sciences Council with support from the City of Providence and Dark Dunes Productions, the event spanned four days, two hotels, two theaters, the Providence Athenaeum, two art galleries, a restaurant, a rock club, and not one, but two hotels. The conference itself boasted several panels, gaming events, walking tours, dozens of vendors, a concert, Cthulu prayer breakfast, gala, and special WaterFire event—a celebratory Providence phenomenon consisting of over 80 permanent bonfires rising from the river—with live music, and lots of monstrous cosplay.
