Evil Book Report – House of Comarré

Over the last couple years I have been intermittently reading this series, and last month I finished the fifth and final book of the collection. The series deals with a group of supernaturals familiar to all of us. It’s got vampires, shapeshifters, ghosts, and even ninja-like warriors. Some of my favorite characters in the novels are faeries. It was a fun read that I am happy to bring you my review of.

What’s Killing My Social Life This Week – Shovel Knight

We are living in a time where we have the technology to make some of the greatest looking and most in depth video games and yet there is a small niche of games being made to cater to the retro crowd. I for one couldn’t be happier. It’s fulfilling a basic need for me. I have never been much of a gamer by modern standards, but that would never stop me from popping on an old 8 Bit or 16 Bit game and finding endless hours or entertainment. Thankfully there are game developers who understand that there are people like me in this world that would easily pay for a new “old” style game.

I’ve been loving the new series of Super Mario Brothers and Donkey Kong Country games. I hit real pay dirt though with the downloadable Final Fantasy IV: The After Years a direct sequel to the U.S. Final Fantasy 2 including the same music, the same graphics, the same characters, the same everything just with a new story. It’s exactly what I wanted. When a friend recommended Shovel Knight to me all I had to do was see the graphics and I was immediately sold. Yacht Club Games is the company behind this and they released the game via download for most major systems. Shovel Knight is everything that’s great about 8 bit gaming and then some.

Things sometimes fall through the cracks in the hallowed halls of The Evil Lair. Articles of clothing mostly, but occasionally it can be priceless pieces of art. The below picture has recently been excavated from our fabled Liefeld Week portraying the Evil Geeks in a homage to the Youngblood #1 cover.

Evil Geek Book Report – Indie Spotlight: The Disease

the disease

If there is one thing you all should know about me by now, it’s that my entire existence depends on whether or not I am prepared for a zombie outbreak. We all know it’s going to happen eventually, so we might as well all be prepared. Anyone can train and gather supplies, but it takes a harder person to be able to jam a rod through the brain of one of your family members. That is something we may all have to deal with one day. Zombie comics and everything else under the Z banner have sort of become training manuals nowadays in terms of giving you a sort of preview of what’s to come in the future, but what if you weren’t able to retain everything you have learned in terms of zombies and what to do during an outbreak? The new book by James Mulholland seeks to let us know.

Evil Movie Review: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Yup, that’s right. I watched it. I did wait for it to come out on blu-ray, but I sat through all two hours of this CGI-laden film. And now you get to read my scathing review from your comfortable couch, crotchety cubicle, stinky subway seat, or wherever it may be that your diabolical self has the time.
