  • FANGORIA Podcast Network: “THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW” Listens Closely to “The Wet Echo”!

    ,,,

    The sinister second season of THE PUMPKIN PIE SHOW continues this week with a twisted tale that redefines the phrase “looking inward.” As wicked as it is witty and weird, Clay McLeod Chapman’s latest sordid story follows a journeyman who finds more than he bargained for when he explores towards intimate territory. One of the more lighthearted and bizarre tales in Chapman’s repertoire, you should take a deep breath and don’t look back when you listen to “The Wet Echo.”

  • “ALEISTER ARCANE” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    Back in 2004, Steve Niles was just another little fish in a big pond. He had done several original works for a series of small press companies, had mild success with his runs on SPAWN and HELLSPAWN (where he met his future collaborative partner Ben Templesmith), and was spending his off hours shopping around a vampire movie script titled 30 DAYS OF NIGHT that no one would touch with a ten-foot pole. In the middle of getting kicked out of movie studios with a comically over-sized boot, he managed to pen a three-issue comic titled ALEISTER ARCANE for IDW Comics. With artwork by Breehn Burns the work was a spooky little footnote in his comic career and quickly fell to the wayside, until now. Once again helmed by IDW, the comic has been recollected and reprinted into a second collection for fans who missed it the first time around and for those who don’t want to wait for the movie.

  • “SHADOWS ON THE GRAVE #1” (Comic Book Review)

    ,,

    Richard Corben is a prime examples of how talent and creativity never ages out, it only gets better. His career has spanned over fifty years, from comic booms to comic crashes, and even now, at the age of 76, has no plans of slowing down. SHADOWS ON THE GRAVE certainly proves that. A collection of new work, SHADOWS ON THE GRAVE #1 is the first of eight issues that features several single story comics along with a continued tale that spans the entire collection. As expected, his iconic art work is the standout feature of the comic, though the stories themselves hold up just as much as his inks. Each one has the perfect touch of macabre and bizarre, a strange world that walks the fine line between reality and the twilight hour where the monsters are only a breath away.
