Comics Creepshow 10: City of Dust

Steve Niles, Master Horror Comic Scribe, has been churning out book after book in the past two months. First off, was CRIMINAL MACABRE: CELL BLOCK 666, which was reviewed in Comics Creepshow 8. There were also his two Gotham city based books, BATMAN: GOTHAM AT MIDNIGHT and SIMON DARK. EPILOGUE, his new miniseries about a man turned into a vampire, who has decided to use his supernatural abilities to fight crime, was another possible candidate for review here, but I chose another book for this week’s column.

New official site for "Prey". "Prey", takes place in Australia and shows what happens when 4 couples accidentally wander "into an Aboriginal sacred site and awaken a 5000 year old curse."

Josh Brolin to play Jonah Hex. Since he's coming hot off the hells of his turn as George W. Bush, it looks like he's going from playing one cowboy to another with this role.

Kevin Smith still talking about his troubles getting his film "Red State" made. Seriously people, it's like a soap opera at this point.

In Real People News: 

Surprise, surprise, the Government could be listening to your phone calls, even if they have no just cause. Just remember that the next time you engage in some "pillow talk" (the article's words, not mine).

On this day in history: 

Disgruntled postal worker Joseph Harris kills four people in Ridgewood, New Jersey. First he brings an Uzi, pipe bomb, and a samurai sword to his supervisor's home, where he kills her and her fiance. Then Harris visits the post office, shooting two coworkers. When he finally surrenders to police, the gunman is wearing a ninja costume and a gas mask. Harris' deeds help spawn the saying, "going postal".

James Gunn Makes a Porno

James Gunn asks "How many times have you been watching a great porn film - you're really enjoying the story, the acting, the cinematography - when, all of the sudden, they ruin everything with PEOPLE HAVING SEX?"

If you feel like James Gunn has read your mind, you're in luck. He's just released the first episode of his new series "PG Porn", starring real life porn star Aria Giovanni and real life spaceship pilot/singing superhero Nathan Fillion. Keep this up and we'll forget all about those Scooby Doo movies.

Devil's Advocate (no, not that one)

So as my Twitter followers know, I taped about 6 hours of the 80's anthology series "Tales From the Darkside" yesterday on the Scifi channel. I had a few free hours today, so I sat down to watch a couple of episodes.

Bust out the foil hats! Aliens have scheduled a visit for October 14th. Or so this UFO site wants us to believe. I mean, these people would be the ones to know, right?

The national debt clock has run out of digits to adequately display the amount of money we owe to Chinese banks, so they will be adding more next year. And still, no one is burning at the stake for this.
