This weekend at the Sheraton Meadowlands in East Rutherford New Jersey Saturday Nightmares returns! I went last year and it was one of the best convention experiences I’ve ever had. Worth checking out for The Twilight Zone marathon on the big screen alone. One of my favorite parts of the Saturday Nightmares convention is the [...]
By Chris Troy One of my problems with the Thor toy line is that it strictly focuses on the Movie-verse stuff, at least for the time being. Hasbro spoiled me by giving Wolverine and Iron Man lines that focused on the comic-stuff as well, so it sucked to see that the mighty Thor not receive [...]
By Loran After my disappointment with Thunderhead, I decided to seek out another Human Alliance Basic for my Dark of the Moon collection. I wanted one that had an actual weapon mode, one that could enhance my other Dark of the Moon figures. I needed a Decepticon, since I always seem to end up with [...]
There has been a rash of Hack/Slash crossovers recently and I’m loving it! Reminds me of Cassie and Vlad’s early days, getting mixed up with Evil Ernie one week, fighting Chucky the next. This coming Wednesday marks the release of Hack Slash Meets Zombies Vs Cheerleaders, who also had a cool crossover of their own [...]
By Chris Troy Possibly due to several minor disputes with my wife over the past few years, I’ve (rather impressively) held off purchasing one of the various Marvel Bishoujo statues; a line consisting of various Marvel Comics heroines based on the work of Japanese artist Yamashita Shunya. Space issues aside, (yay current bigger apartment) I [...]
The new Image title Witch Doctor dropped this week as the flip side of Walking Dead #85. So after reading the Walking Dead (which was another mind blowing issue) I was all hyped on reading this Witch Doctor. As a horror enthusiast I love seeing new genre comics being released. Especially a non-zombie related one, no [...]
Once more it is time for me to claw frantically into the pile of mini comics that traps me and to decide what to review. And so, under the watchful-yet-unmoved eyes of the assorted subterranean denizens of Forbidden Planet’s basement, I give you: Pearly Whites by Phil McAndrew and Pig’s Missing Poo by Robert Goodin!
Though he’s never had a great movie, the Incredible Hulk has had some amazing comics. Here’s a quick guide to stocking up your library with some tomes guaranteed to smash boredom like a cardboard wall! ESSENTIAL INCREDIBLE HULK VOL. 1, Jack Kirby/Various (A) Stan Lee (A), Marvel Like the leader’s bulbous head, this is a [...]
Manga a bit more feminine in nature seems to be the theme for this week, and whether it’s the crazy high school sci-fi hijinks of Haruhi-chan, the butt-kicking martial arts mayhem of Sumomomo Momomo, or the folklore-filled wisdom of Spice and Wolf, there are new volumes to satisfy the part of you that was left [...]
By Loran You know, I’m not embarrassed at all to admit that I like gimmicky characters. When I first heard about the movie Wreckers, a big grin went across my face. The idea of taking actual stock cars and making them into characters for Dark of the Moon was cool enough, but when I heard [...]

By Loran Well, the Dark of the Moon toys are finally here, and in full force. Last week I covered the new sublines we’ll be seeing in this Transformers series, and the other day I picked up my first of the new Human Alliance figures. There were quite a bit to choose from, but there [...]
Junji Ito’s wild horror manga Gyo is getting the anime treatment and I’m squirming with excitement! Up until fairly recent I was only vaguely familiar with Ito’s work, mostly from the live action adaptation of Uzumaki and seeing his name on various books in the store. That is until I picked up Gyo. Immediately blown [...]
