Abbott #1 Main cover by Taj Tenfold

Imagine Carl Kolchak as a female reporter of color – covering the crime beat in 1972 Detroit – and you’d have Elena Abbott.

Abbott’s investigation of a series of grisly crimes (that the police have ignored – sound familiar?) leads to a dark magical force that was responsible for the death of her husband a decade earlier.

Written by Saladin Ahmed (Marvel’s Black Bolt, The Crescent Moon Kingdoms novels) and artist Sami Kivelä (Black Mask’s Beautiful Canvas), Abbott #1 will be available in print and digital, in January, 2018.

On Friday, October 27th, prepare to meet a very ticked off Eleven, a very worried Joyce and some members of a secret government agenicy who are in way over their heads – not to mention for D&D-playing guys who, once again, find the fate of the world in their hands.

They Are The Things That Go Bump In The Night! Trailer: The New Mutants!

Consider, if you will, the scratchy yellow font on the poster for The New Mutants. Harsh against the blacks/grays of the background, it seems to be more of a warning than a reassurance.

The implication – borne out by a statement in the trailer that ‘baby rattlesnakes are more dangerous than adult rattlesnakes’ – seems to be that young mutants are the things that go bump in the night. They are the scary beasties.

The New Mutants premieres on April 13, 2018.

Happy Death Day – Enthusiastic Exploration of Groundhog Day Concept as a Horror Comedy!

When I sat down to watch Happy Death Day, I was hoping for the best. After all the recurring day trope has provided some interesting and entertaining movies and several brilliant episodes of otherwise not so great TV shows.

What I wasn’t expecting was a genuinely clever series of variations on a theme that yielded some wildly divergent variations and a few really subtle ones. Also, plenty of wit and some great laughs.
