Horror Comics: An interview with artist Walt Flanagan

Walt Flanagan wears a lot of hats. He's the manager of a comic book store, a comic book artist (having drawn everything from the epic classic monster mash-up "War of the Undead" to Batman) the star of AMC's "Comic Book Men", and a co-host of the popular, multiple award winning podcast "Tell 'Em Steve Dave". This October, Flanagan (along with writer and co-creator Bryan Johnson) brings us "Cryptozoic Man".

From publisher Dynamite Entertainment:

Snapshots: "The Walking Dead" Season 3 is almost here!

"The Walking Dead" season 3 is about to begin! Check out 50 hi-res images from the new season, and don't forget to check out AMC'S zombie epic starting October 14th.

Poster: Season 2 of 'The Walking Dead'

AMC revealed to the world the new poster for The Walking Dead Season 2 today. It keeps the color scheme & shot perspective from the first season poster. Both seasons had a 3rd person, over the shoulder perspective of Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln); although while in Season One, it had him riding calmly, opposite the outgoing, chaotic (and now dead) traffic. Here, we see him running towards a mysterious farmhouse, gun drawn. Does it imply the build up of panic? Or convey the vast emptiness that is now their world?

A fistfull of clips from the upcoming second season of "The Walking Dead" have hit the tubes and before you go getting all excited I should tell you that all of them are about ten seconds long. Not that you can't do some really good stuff in ten seconds. Sometimes ten seconds is all you need if something is really good. Ten seconds can completely please a woman... or viewer. Whatever. What were we talking about?

Showtime looks to be working on a new series titled "The Damned" which is based on the graphic novel of the same name. For those of you who think reading is stupid even if there's a bunch of pictures the story focuses on 3 demon families who run an underground soul trafficking circuit during prohibition. Not drinking ruins everything.

Regina Hall, Anthony Anderson and Kevin Hart are rumored to all be on board for the 2012 release of "Scary movie 5". Because we all demanded there be more "Scary Movie" films. Of course now we regret it. Man Harvey Wallbangers can really mess up an evening am I right? They can also cause people to think "Scary Movie 5" is a good idea.

Lily Rabe has squinty eyes and 20 credits on her IMDB, none of which I have seen, and now she's been confirmed for the cast of FX's new wack job series "American Horror Story". The new show will focus on a family that moves into a new creepy home in the aftermath of the fathers infidelity. Then they all put on rubber suits or something. I don't know the promo frightens me.

In Real People News: 

I have no idea how this happened but here's a Kansas woman who was cleaning her yard after a storm and accidentally got a tree branch shoved into her nose, through her eye socket, then to her sinus cavity and eventually ended up touching her brain. I'm not sure if this is a good or bad thing but apparently she's alive but is most likely frightened of every tree within a 50 mile radius.

Of course here's a story about a woman who was killed after the tow truck that was trying to get her car out of the sand had it's tow thingy snap off and fly into her windshield and eventually into her face. So I guess the tree up the nose thing isn't that bad after all.

The Walking Dead Season 1 on Sale!

Like many of you, I enjoyed the hell out of AMC's new series "The Walking Dead" last season. I was extremely surprised they managed a gritty, gory tale of the zombie apocalypse that was paired with great acting and characters with personality. Most can agree that this is also a series that isn't just for die hard zombie or horror fans - the true drama is about human survival during the end of the known world, and the stories of the survivors can appeal to almost anyone.

The website for the Guillermo del Toro co-written frightfest "Don't Be Afraid Of the Dark" has hit the tubes for your time wasting enjoyment. Normally I wouldn't give a crap about a website launch but this one is actually pretty cool. Spooky voices that whisper your name and some hot webcam action make it all kinds of fun. Although it's probably going to be a giant let down after I built it up with promises of "hot webcam action".

All kind of news around "The Walking Dead" seems to be flying out of Comic-Con and probably the most exciting is that season 2 now officially has a premiere date of Sunday, October 16. The second most exciting thing is that a trailer for the upcoming season has been released. Third most exciting is a bunch of stills. Fourth most exciting is that to date I have not been notified that I won't be signed on to the cast for season 3.

AMC has officially announced a four part mini-series based on Stephan King's "Bag of Bones", a story that focuses on a man haunted by the loss of his wife. Pierce Brosnan and Anabeth Gish are both confirmed for the project which begins filming next month. Proof once again that if you wait long enough every book will be turned into moving pictures. The point here is reading is dumb.

The first trailer for the live action role playing kiddnapping succubus flick (seriously) "Knights of Badassdom" has hit the net thanks to all things Comic-Con and it looks hella good, son. Do people still say hella good? Ya know, like that No Doubt song? Is No Doubt still popular? They broke up?! Oh god.

In Real People News: 

A 29 year old Connecticut women is under arrest after forcing her 4 year old son and 10 month old daughter to drink beer and ingest cocaine. According to the woman her son "likes Natural Ice beer and Budweiser, but doesn’t like the taste of Dog Bite." I promise you this, my newborn daughter will never drink that crap. She'll only drink good beer.

A 39 year old Louisiana man is facing charges after sexting photos of his erect manhood to 5 female real estate agents whose contact info he got off of signs. This is great to know because I myself am currently doing some apartment hunting and just assumed this kind of thing was a perfectly normal part of doing business.

Horror Headlines: Thursday January 6th, 2011

Liam Neeson is teaming up again with is "A-Team" director Joe Carnahan in "The Grey". Neeson seems to have a new found love for the horror genre, can he pull it off once again in this man vs. wolf thriller?

Bill Moseley seems like a natural fit for Charles Manson, so it's good to hear that Susanna Lo has cast him in her upcoming flick, "Manson Girls". Manson is pretty much a love child between Chop Top and Otis, so why not?

The first season of AMC's "The Walking Dead" was a rousing success and you'll be able to buy it for yourself in March. Start saving your pennies, the Blu-ray will run you $49, the DVD will go for $39.99.

Our first big awards show of 2011 has come and gone with last night's airing of The People's Choice Awards. This year the fans didn't give much love to the horror genre at all despite the addition of a 'Favorite Horror Movie' category. The first winner of this prestigious category? "A Nightmare on Elm Street". At least "Dexter" won for favorite TV obsession.

Sydney Prescott, author of a self help book is finishing up her book tour in her home town of Woodsboro when the Ghostface murders start up again. Such is the leaked plot synopsis included in the first round of "Scream 4" test screening invitations.

In Real People News: 

The following is a warning from the Calvert County Sheriff's Department: there is a rogue Emu on the loose. Should you see the animal in your yard, do not approach. The animal is to be considered a wild freaking animal and it will claw the shit out of you.

An 11 year old New Jersey child is going to court for writing her name in cement, yet the "Jersey Shore" cast still walks free. I ask you, is this justice?

On this day in history: 

1982 - William G Bonin, the truck driving "Freeway Killer", convicted in Los Angeles. He had murdered 14 boys and young men.

Horror Headlines: Tuesday November 2nd, 2010

Be still my beating heart! Leonardo DiCaprio is confirmed to star in "The Devil in the White City", a new film based on H.H. Holmes, America's first serial killer. This will mark the first time I've ever had a man crush on a murderer. Mark this down.

Good news and bad news for fans of "The Walking Dead". The good news is the AMC series had a big ass premier with 5.3 million viewers. The bad news, that means instead of going out, getting drunk and going home with some random person you probably sat at home and watched TV. I've never been so proud and disappointed of you in my whole life.

I love every thing that comes out of Norway. Vikings, those weird ass black metal kids and that band that sang "Barbie Girl". Well add the new film "Inside a Whore", which has a new trailer online, to the list. I don't even know what it's about, I got so excited about the title I blacked out for a solid twenty minutes.

Still got "Let Me In" fever? Take a number kids! So here's a deleted clip from the film to keep your chops moist. Just to be clear though, if you're taking a number I think only 17 people went to see the movie so the line might not be too long. 17 people counting the five of us on the podcast. And no, we won't be in the line.

In Real People News: 

A Chinese boy recently fell 20 stories, landed on a car and lived. Impressive maybe for us Americans but have you seen the Chinese Circus? The guys some around like wild animals so honestly I think the kid could have gone 30 floors without an issue.

Before I explain this let me get this out of the way. I was nowhere near Maryland this past weekend. Alright, now here's a story about a man who was there and was very drunk, very much in a diaper and very much screaming profanity.

On this day in history: 

1974 – 78 die when the "Time Go-Go" Club in Seoul, South Korea burns down. Six of the victims jumped to their deaths from the seventh floor when a club official barred the doors after the fire started.

Horror Headlines: Monday October 22nd, 2010

If you saw one supernatural horror film this past weekend there is a solid chance it was "Paranormal Activity 2". The film had the highest-grossing opening weekend ever for the sub-genre with a chicken foot shattering $41.5 million. I know five naughty little podcasters who saw it and will be recording a show for it this week. See how that tied in? Wasn't that nice?

In honor of "The Walking Dead" finally hitting AMC this coming weekend the good people behind the series have released some new behind the scenes photos. The show looks awesome and I have nothing bad or sarcastic to say, which is strange and confusing to me. Thanks AMC, you made me hit puberty again.

For those of you waiting with baited breath for "Host 2" to be released you can now officially wet yourself because the sequel is going to be released in 3D! But now that you're all excited I should also mention that the 3D conversion will delay the film's release as well as change the overall logistics. Waaah!

Steven Spielberg has confirmed that he will be bringing "Robopocalypse" to the big screen in 2013. The film is based on a book by Daniel H. Wilson and focuses on the fate of humans after the robot uprising. Hopefully there will also be robot cops because I keep reading the title as "RoboCopOcalypse".

On this day in history: 

1938 - The Archbishop of Dubuque, the Most Reverend Francis J.L. Beckman, denounces the newfangled Swing music -- the latest craze -- as nothing more than "a degenerated musical system... turned loose to gnaw away the moral fiber of young people." Its cannibalistic rhythms are said to lead one down the "primrose path to Hell."

Video: New Clips From "The Walking Dead"

I know you kids think you're all to cool for television these days but get your rabbit ears out because "The Walking Dead" is coming to AMC on Halloween. In short the show is a 6 episode series based on the Robert Kirkman comic book that follows a cop leading a group of survivors after the zombie apocalypse breaks out. There's been about 6 million screen shots released for the show and now we've got a few new video clips. A trailer and a couple character profiles to be more specific.
