Jack Brooks: Comic Book Hero

Jack Brooks is an ordinary guy with a lot of rage inside. When he one day accidentally unleashes an ancient evil, he must become a slayer of monsters in order to protect the world.

The synopsis doesn’t exactly sell me on the idea, but the poster did (““>Badass New Jack Brooks Poster! – February 2008″). On top of that there’s also something cool over at the official site of Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer. The site is currently letting visitors browse through a digital copy of a promo comic the filmmakers were handing out during film festivals. Get some reading in and then check out the movie’s trailer below!

Mike Phalin

Since 1997, Michael Patrick Phalin has been a contributing writer to various websites including Dread Central, iMockery, Bloody Disgusting and KrytenSyxx. During the early 1980s, Phalin's love of the movie industry was fueled by the VHS tapes he found during his time spent at the video rental store his mother worked at. Rather than attending a daycare regularly, young Michael would form a tower of tapes with interesting cover art and go watch each one, the very first of these being the original 'A Nightmare on Elm Street.' From that point he was hooked on horror and the process behind creating special effects. In his twenties, Mike met Steve 'Uncle Creepy' Barton and was soon aiding the horror website Dread Central with film reviews. As the site grew in popularity, Phalin soon started writing news stories and conducting interviews on a daily basis. After a few years, he decided to take a break from writing to focus on other opportunities. After moving to a beach community with his wife Michelle, both were cast to appear in the final season of A&E's home improvement show 'Fix This Yard' in 2013. This event rekindled Mike's love of the entertainment industry. Between the time he spends being with his family, Michael continues to contribute to Dread Central both with writing and photography. In his mid-thirties, Phalin took up oil painting after being inspired by an episode of Bob Ross. Pieces of his artwork and photography can be found on his Tumblr and official website.
