Italian Spiderman no more… Who will save us from the Nazi Dinosaurs?

by M.I.K.

Has it really been three years since he bade us farewell? It is with a heavy heart that I must post the following video…

…but wait… What’s that down there…?

Hold the rhubarb… There’s something jolly familiar about that David Ashby chap’s style.

Is that…? No, it can’t be…

Welcome to Hoxford Short Fan Film

by Ghastly McNasty

Welcome to HoxfordThis short film is a fan made adaptation of Ben Templesmith’s werewolf comic published by IDW Welcome to Hoxford. Directed by Julien Mokrani. Written & Artistic Coordination by Samuel Bodin. With Jason Flemyng, Dexter Fletcher & Arben Bajraktaraj. This movie is so well made it’s impossible not to be impressed by it. It’s highly stylized which suits the movie as it’s only 20 minutes long. However, the short length does leave you wanting to see a complete adaptation of the comic.

It’s a great comic and definately worth your money. You can see our review of the comic Welcome to Hoxford here.

Mokrani is clearly a massive lover of the original work and claims:

This film is produced solely for the personal, uncompensated enjoyment of ourselves and other Ben Templesmith fans.

Grab some popcorn, sit back and enjoy this wonderful experience.

Check out the fan film site here.

Hallowscream IndieGoGo Campaign

by Ghastly McNasty



Hallowscream is a global horror comic that brings artists and writers together from around the world. The project is open to both amateur and professional comic creators and you can see the mix of styles and stories for yourself in the first two issues on the Hallowscream site.

Hallowscream Editor 'The Reaper'In March of this year we announced details of Hallowscream 2011 on various platforms around the internet. From that announcement we received loads of stories from eager horror writers all looking to see their work appear in an online comic. Some of these terrifying tales were already in script format while others arrived as spooky short stories or even petrifying poems. We were then able to match these stories to comic artists who had answered our call and wanted to be a part of Hallowscream. We also received a few completed horror strips from existing comic creators which had yet to be published. This year’s issue features the work of contributors from America, Australia, UK (where it all began) and the rest of Europe!

Visit the IndieGoGo site to find out more details and to pledge money to this project. Make sure you check out the promotional video and take a look at the rewards you get for pledging money to the cause.

If the full target is not reached then the campaign will be cancelled and this fang-tastic comic will not be printed. It’s all or nothing by October 31st.
