Always brings a smile to see parents and their kids dress up on a show they probably enjoy together, especially when it’s Doctor Who.

No idea who they were supposed to be. I just got into the frenzy of other people snapping pics that probably didn’t know who they were either, and thought I’d join in! [I think the one on the left is Codex from The Guild? – Mike]

Radia, from the Tron:Evolution Xbox 360 video game. She told me quite a bit about the game…seems very underrated, at least the story.

ADC Comic of the Day(s): HEART OF A CORPSE

23 Mar

by Orion Tippens

(Mike here – this is one of my favorite things about comics: finding a cool gem that I’ve never heard of before. Orion’s review here has convinced me to check this out – you’re going to want to, too! But there’s one thing I’m wondering: is creator Justin Sane the same guy from the band Anti-Flag, or is there more than one walking the earth?! – UPDATE: See comment from Mr. Sane below for the answer!)

Heart of a Corpse #1, #2

Writer, Artist: Justin Sane

Slave Labor Graphics 2011, complete story in two acts

#1 – 58 pages, #2 – 83 pages

Heart of a Corpse cover

Looking for something new, something wonderful in the sequential art format? Do you also desire creativity, an extended display of shapes and colors that tell the story more than words could? How about a romantic story with a spooktacular vibe?   Then do check out Heart of a Corpse.

What is this wonder? Heart of a Corpse is a simple story in a Victorian style setting about a hearse driver named “The Gentleman,” and his courting of the mortician’s daughter, Annabel. This leading to a proposal in marriage. But trouble happens, as another man, “the Brute,” wants Annabel to himself, and proceeds in nefarious acts against our romantic protagonist. Supernatural and abstract elements develop, adding to the entertaining twists that guide us to a thoughtful, beautiful ending.

The execution of the story is beautiful, classic. Like a silent movie, we as readers must rely on basic visuals, with a few necessary placards for the entire story. The Continue reading

ORION’S ADC Comic of the Day: DOCTOR WHO Vol. 2 #9

15 Nov

Hey guys, Mike here – I’m aware that a lot of you noticed that the site’s other fine contributors haven’t been seen much this month – that’s my fault for not keeping up with my in-box! There’s a lot of good stuff from my pals that you’ll be seeing, starting NOW, with hardcore Doctor Who fan Orion and a story of a guy, his Sonic Screwdriver, and his ROBOT DINOSAUR:

Doctor Who Vol. 2 #9

Writer: Tony Lee, Artist: Josh Adams

IDW, Sept. 2011, 21 pages

review by Orion Tippens

Doctor Who Vol. 2 #9 cover AMissing new Doctor Who on the television, but not the head-rattling, timey-wimey nonsense of ridiculously elaborate plans to kill our beloved Doctor? Did you enjoy the fun, creative goodness of the better standalone episodes (“Vincent and the Doctor”, “The Girl Who Waited”), better appreciated not only by us fans, but those less familiar who enjoy a good, often campy science-fiction story?

Well, here you go, we have this issue of the current comics run based on the series. Here is all the fun of the show, as we join the Doctor, Amy, Rory, and a dinosaur named Continue reading
