Full Lineup Announced for the Indie Comics Magazine Summer Issue



Post Thumb:


Last month we got a teaser of what would be included in the upcoming summer issue of Indie Comics Magazine with the announcement of Joe Sergi’s The Zombie War of 1812, and now we know what other seven stories will be part of the publication as well. Read on for the details!

From the Press Release:
Office sex, presidents battling zombies, and feral, mutant pets join tall ship vampires, military organizations with guns blazing, and a space alien in Indie Comics Magazine’s Summer Issue, for pre-order NOW in Diamond’s June 2012 Previews under Aazurn Publishing. (Indie Comics Magazine is available ONLY through the Previews catalog in comic shops. No huge print run, no digital version – Previews is the ONLY way comic readers and comic shops can get their hands on Indie Comics Magazine.)

The stories include:

  • Guns blazing, a young “Teddy” Roosevelt cuts his way through a horde of zombies in Frederick Kim’s “The Dead and Endless Wastes.”
  • Office sex is far from casual in writer Glenn Møane’s “Staying Positive.”
  • Gene altered, designer animals are the latest pet trend. When nature takes hold and these creatures become menacing, Rob Anderson’s “Animal Control: Special Creatures Unit” steps in.
  • It’s the American Revolution. General Harrison’s Brigade has joined with British forces to battle an unexpected force. Undead soldiers gather near Lexington in Joe Sergi’s “The Zombie War of 1812.”
  • Myth and history collide in Terry Cronin and Dove McHargue’s high seas tale about a ship’s deadly cargo: “Las Vampiratas.”
  • This space alien is not what he appears to be! Don McMillan tells of Timber Tom’s visit to earth.
  • Trey, the newest member of Armed Guard Agency division D.A.R.T., shoots it out with smugglers in newcomer LeVar Leo’s adventure tale.
  • Heresy shall not be tolerated as Australian Paul Bradford presents a new Astral Crusaders story.

    64 pages of done-in-one stories wrapped with a beautiful painting of a green-eyed heroine by Image and Disney illustrator Terry Pavlet.

    “I continue to be blown away by the talent and storytelling abilities of the creators who contribute to Indie Comics Magazine,” said publisher Gary Scott Beatty. “We feature a diverse range of storytelling styles. This is a real cross-section of indie comic book genius!”

    Did You Catch Chucky and King Kong’s Cameo in the Trailer For Steven Spielberg’s New Movie?



    You may remember a few months back there was a kick-ass trailer for Steven Spielberg’s new action-adventure flick Ready Player One that sported a quick glimpse of not only Freddy Krueger, but Stephen King’s Christine as well.

    If those slick horror nods weren’t enough for you, today we have the new trailer for the film and guess who shows up? Yep, you guess it (from the headline) but Mr. Charles Lee Ray lends a helping knife to a battle, and the king of the jungle, Kong himself!

    Very cool.

    The cameos in the trailer is one of those “blink-and-you’ll-miss-it” things, but let’s hope he has a bit more screentime in the actual movie. By the way, is Ready Player One reminding anyone else of the “Imagination Land” episode(s) of “South Park”…?

    You can check out the trailer below and then make sure to let us know what you think!

    The film is directed by Steven Spielberg, based on the novel by Ernie Cline, and stars Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn, Simon Pegg, Mark Rylance, T.J. Miller, Hannah John-Kamen, and Letitia Wright.

    Ready Player One hits theaters March 30, 2018.


    In the near future, outcast teenager Wade Watts escapes from his bleak surroundings by logging in to the OASIS, a globally networked virtual utopia where users can lead idyllic alternate lives. When the eccentric billionaire who created the OASIS dies, he offers up his vast fortune as the prize in an elaborate treasure hunt. Along with gamers from around the world, Wade joins the adventure, and quickly finds himself pitted against powerful corporate foes and other ruthless competitors who will do anything, in the oasis or the real world, to reach the treasure first.

    The Shape of Water Scores 7 Nominations at This Year’s Golden Globes



    Earlier today we let you know Jordan Peele’s horror-thriller Get Out scored nods at this year’s Golden Globes for Best Motion Picture and Best Actor – both in the Comedy category.


    That said, another film from our beloved genre is getting some love in the form of writer-director Guillermo del Toro’s new creature feature The Shape of Water.

    The film was given nominations in a staggering 7 categories including Best Motion Picture – Drama, Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama for Sally Hawkins, Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture for Octavia Spencer, and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in any Motion Picture for Richard Jenkins.

    Del Toro also scored nods for his work as director and co-screenwriter for the film.

    You can check out the full list of nominations right HERE.

    The film is directed by Guillermo del Toro, written by Vanessa Taylor and del Toro, and stars Sally Hawkins, Michael Shannon, Richard Jenkins, Michael Stulbarg, and Doug Jones.

    The Shape of Water is currently playing in theaters.

    In the hidden high-security government laboratory where she works, lonely Elisa (Sally Hawkins) is trapped in a life of silence and isolation. Elisa’s life is changed forever when she and co-worker Zelda (Octavia Spencer) discover a secret classified experiment.

    Get Out Scores Golden Globe Nominations… as a Comedy



    It was a few weeks back now when we let you guys in on the rather puzzling news that the Golden Globes was considering Jordan Peele horror-thriller Get Out as a nominee…

    As a comedy.

    As strange as that news was, it seems it wasn’t a joke in its own right as Jordan Peele’s Get Out has scored a nomination for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy. The news broke this morning with the full release of this year’s nominations via EW.

    You can check out the full list HERE.

    One cool thing is that actor Daniel Kaluuya also scored a nod for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – again, Musical or Comedy. Sad and borderline ridiculous that Peele didn’t score nods as director OR screenwriter. For shame, Golden Globes.

    What do you think of this news? Are you just glad Get Out got SOME love from this year’s Gloden Globes, or could you care less about awards season? Let us know below!

    Now that Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) and his girlfriend, Rose (Allison Williams), have reached the meet-the-parents milestone of dating, she invites him for a weekend getaway upstate with Missy and Dean. At first, Chris reads the family’s overly accommodating behavior as nervous attempts to deal with their daughter’s interracial relationship; but as the weekend progresses, a series of increasingly disturbing discoveries lead him to a truth that he could never have imagined.
