Halloween Contest Time
On the one hand, it's not exactly the contest I've been promising yet (urgh..sorry). On the upside, it is
a pumpkin carving contest!
If you're looking for something fun to do this Halloween season that doesn't involve ritual bloodletting, this might be the thing for you. We promise better prizes than most ancient, bloodthirsty deities, anyway.
My publisher, 4DE, is hosting this one and, of course, the theme is 4DE's various comic titles.Contest rules are here
TinyHeroes Are Tiny!TinyHeroes
, has just been released in the App Store, for those who enjoy iPhone games...and murdering googly-eyed do-gooders. Here's its direct iTunes link
It might be Tiny, but it was a herculean effort for the development team, spanning many months, and we're proud to finally have it out there. Candy
and I are among the art monkeys working on this one.
Um, penultimately, I want to thank all of you who voted or left feedback on the t-shirt poll. I'm sorry I didn't get a chance to respond to many comments, but I assure you I read them all (so did Eric from 4DE) and took your thoughts into consideration. We should have some t-shirts available soon.
Lastly: Horror Films!
Right about this time every year, when the corn is finally tall enough to hide in, when canned pumpkin pie goo goes on sale at the grocery store, and when the evenings start growing just a few degrees cooler, I'm struck with the need to be horrified. Yes. I need horror movies. I need them right now
The trouble is I'm running short on new material again. Classics never lose their lustre, but one can only watch them so many times before they lose their effect (save that one inexplicable shot in The Shining in which Barf from Spaceballs appears to be having some sort of tête-à-crotch moment with a man in a tux. That has never lost its WHAT?
). Slasher films are, with few exceptions, filed under 'Unintentional Comedy' and not 'Horror' as far as I'm concerned, and, by and large, American remakes of Asian horror films are horrifying in all the wrong
So where's all the good stuff?? Any recommendations?
