Your favorite gravel voiced and bald headed hearth throb Vin Diesel has made a few nerds happy by announcing that he and David Twohy are re-teaming for a third "Riddick" film.

Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, writers of smash hit "Zombieland" are feeling rather cocky of late. In the same interview we posted earlier in the week, the two authors talk about their dreams of turning the film's universe into a TV show. Sure, it seems far fetched but you can put money on the bet that I'd probably watch it faithfully!

Top Cow comics has put up a trailer for its upcoming motion comics for "The Crazies". It's Friday, you know you'd rather read comics than work anyways.

Good news for you romantic types, there's yet another tween supernatural romance in the works pitting a teenage girl's hormones and a twinkie monster. Sparkling vampires were bad enough, how abouta teenage girl in love with a boy that turns into a wolf every winter? We're one step closer to 'Furry: The Movie' folks.

Lucky McKee and Angela Bettis are prepping for another team up, this time on the sequel to the "The Offspring", "Offspring: The Woman".

In Real People News: 

Two men in the Florida Keys get into a massive brawl over the results of the Super Bowl. Unfortunately for one of the men, his opponent grabbed him by testicles and squeezed until they popped to get out of a headlock.

Shanghai reports an upswing in drug issues with many arrests for the use of ketamine, cocaine and methamphetamine. All this to keep them awake for more hours to play mahjong. And that's no joke.

On this day in history: 

1554 - The sixteen year old Lady Jane Grey, puppet Queen of England for nine days, beheaded in the Tower of London.

Comics: Victorian Undead

Have you found yourself lately, sitting about in your smoking jacket and ascot thinking "by jove, I wish there was more of a plethora of zombies in my sequentially drawn art stories"? Probably not. But just in case you have, you're in luck with Wildstorm comics newest series, "Victorian Undead"!

Saga of the Swamp Thing Book 2

In this second collection Swamp Thing hardcover featuring SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING #28-34 and SWAMP THING ANNUAL #2, the Earth Elemental says goodbye to the illusion of his own humanity after learning that he is 100 percent plant, meets a crew of benevolent alien invaders inspired by the classic swamp-based comic strip Pogo, and consummates his relationship with Abigail Arcane as only he could.

Templesmith and McCool Talk "Choker"

Artist Ben Templesmith should be familiar to horror comics fans, from his breakthrough with the original "30 Days of Night" comic to horror-comedy with "Wormwood, Gentleman Corpse" and supernatural mystery with "Fell".

Ben Templesmith Illustrates "Dracula"

Eisner- and Scream Award-nominated writer/artist Ben Templesmith provides 27 all-new, full-color chapter illustrations for this special presentation of a classic horror novel. Originally published in 1897, Dracula is one of the best-selling and most influential stories of all time.

Freddy Vs. Jason Vs. Ash - The Nightmare Warriors #1

Dynamite Comics has had a successful run at extending the "Armys of Darkness" universe in ink. With an earlier mini series throwing together everybody's favorite movie monsters in a battle royale, "Freddy Vs. Jason Vs. Ash", they're now set to dive into this slobberknocker once again!

Due out soon is "Freddy Vs. Jason Vs. Ash - The Nightmare Warriors" written by Jeff Katz and James Kuhoric and drawn by Jason Craig.

Comics: North 40

"Somewhere in Midwestern America was a place called Conover County. When the old book was opened, and the runes therein used in haste and ignorance, a place of farms, simple folk, and small-town dreams became a den of monsters and nightmare. NORTH 40 is the story of those who survived and came to confront an even greater evil on the horizon – one that wouldn't just consume their flesh, but their souls as well.

Comics: Rotten #1

There's a new sheriff in town as far as zombie western comics go, and the badge belongs to Moonstone book's newest title "Rotten", written by Mark Rahner and Robert Horton, drawn by Dan Dougherty.

Comics: Hotwire #3

I came into this four issue mini late, but not too late thankfully. Perhaps just in time. Based on a short story by comic madman Warren Ellis, "Hotwire" has a lot of creep and edgy futuristic weirdness going for it.

Ghosts. The cities of the future have grown ankle-deep in them as they graze off the electromagnetic waste of a billion wireless Internet connections. Most can only drift, witless and lost. Rarely, though, something comes through with enough marbles to cause real trouble.

The Twisted Tragedy of "Crumb"

Through his extensive work from the late 60's to today, R. Crumb single-handedly defined the underground comic genre. Although Puritan parents of the era dealt out spankings for finding any comic stash, an unearthed copy of Zap Comix could mean a trip to boarding school, or perhaps even a mental institution. If you've ever truly wanted to try and get inside the head of the twisted man behind Fritz the Cat and Mr Natural, Terry Zwigoff's 1994 documentary "Crumb" is about as close as you can possibly get.
