Sneak Peek at Simon Dark!

Published

on

Simon Dark cover!We first heard of this project at the Fangoria Weekend of Horrors NJ edition, straight from the lips of Steve Niles himself. Talk was of a horror comic, set in the DC super hero universe, starring a boy who was pieced together from the parts of other children who grows up to defend the weak as he unravels the mystery of his past.

Lurks in shadows
Hides in the park
Simon Simon Simon Dark
If you’re good he’ll stay away
If you’re bad he’ll make you pay.

The song on the lips of children in a particularly dark corner of Gotham City reminds you of some horror film, but this is a different sort of tale. Gotham City is generally known as the home of one particular dark avenger who glides across the roof tops on the wings of a bat, but with the state of the world today, even the Batman can’t be everywhere. Born of pain and some unknown past tragedy, Simon Dark walks the city streets as it’s black angel. The first issue introduces us to this character, born from the mind of Steve Niles (30 Days of Night) paired with the eerie pencils of artist Scott Hampton, which assure us we are in for a wild ride. The book is quiet and creepy, slowly gripping you with a dream-like, fairy tale quality while astounding you with horrors only Hannibal Lecter could conjure. Darkman may have been horror’s first super hero, but Simon Dark picks up that mantle and runs full bore with it. Get in on the ground floor today.

DC Comic’s Simon Dark can be found at your local comic shop today. Dig the press blurb…

Gotham City has another guardian, a protector known only in whispers and children’s jump rope songs — and he’s not afraid to get his hands bloody! Meet Simon Dark, the mysterious creature of the night who’s the star of a new ongoing series by the creative team behind the acclaimed Gotham County Line — writer Steve Niles (30 Days of Night) and artist Scott Hampton (Batman: Night Cries)!

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Are Truth Seekers Playing by Slaughterhouse Rulez

Published

on

One of our favorite pairings of stars from the last twenty years is no doubt that of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. Their chemistry is undeniable, and if you didn’t get enough of it in “Spaced,” Shawn of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End, and Paul, you’re about to get a bellyful of it on both big and small screens.

Variety is reporting that Frost and Pegg will be starring in “Truth Seekers,” a half-hour comedy-horror TV show about a three-person paranormal investigation team.

According to the site, each installment of “Truth Seekers” will focus on a paranormal incident, a setup with clear monster-of-the-week potential. “Each episode is going to be an adventure, a potential haunting or something,” Pegg says. “It’ll start as a very parochial idea, a very small business venture for these people, but it will expand as the series goes on to be something far more global. It’s a language everyone understands, the mystery of the unknown. Shaun of the Dead was a very parochial story set in North London, and somehow it managed to get this global reach because everyone understands the language of zombie movies.

That’s not all, though… the pair are also working on the feature film Slaughterhouse Rulez, a horror-comedy now in post-production. Directed by Crispian Mills and set in a well-to-do public school, the movie is “very satirical, very much about the U.K. selling itself off,” Pegg says. “It’s about fracking as well, and that unleashes some awful subterranean demon.

Both of these projects will be released under their Stolen Picture shingle. Stay tuned, kids! More as we get it!

Andrew and Sara are happily married and plan on spending some quality time together, but something sinister has other plans for their evening.
