Your Weekend Creature Comforts: The Dianoga

Welcome back creature lovers. Being a fan of Star Wars marathons it is rare that I make it more than a year without rewatching these wonderful movies. And lucky for you all the movies are chuck full of incredible creatures, giving me more and more ideas of aliens to write about for Your Weekend Creature Comforts. This weekend I want to spotlight The Dianoga, a creature that scares the hell out of everyone watching A New Hope for the first time but also one that most people do not know what it really looks like… DianogaEye-ANH

Evil Geeks Art Gallery – It Ain’t Easy Being Green

Oh hello, Internet, I didn’t see you come in. How does this morning find you? That’s good to hear… oh, I’m doing quite well, thanks for asking. I recently acquired a new piece of art. No, I didn’t visit that gallery exhibition downtown, although I hear they had some delightful pieces; This was a work I commissioned from two of our generation’s greatest masters:  Biff Tannen and Arthur Harkness. You may recall that in the past I have tasked them with recreating some of my favorite nerd culture images, yes? This one is almost undeniably the finest of those works. Here is the classis, (if amateurishly illustrated) original.

Pulp Corner: The Shadow Vol. 1 – The Fire Of Creation

SEP120990

I am truly fascinated by the original pulp vigilante The Shadow for my money he was the best of those creations from that era. He’s left quite a legacy in his wake with legions of imitators.  I was excited when Dynamite picked up the license for the character (amongst many, many other old school pulp characters) and began a new series with him back in 2012. I picked up the trade for Vol. 1 The Fire of Creation as soon as it was released without reading the 6 collected issues prior. The author of course was Garth Ennis whom I didn’t particularly have great success with his Fury miniseries but I was willing to give this a shot.

Evil Movie Review: Pandorum

Welcome back for another action-packed, spoiler-riddled review from your favorite Evil Queen. Yes I am still sadly recovering from a bloody knee injury, but I am on the mend and getting lots of time to indulge in more fun science fiction flicks. This weekend the Veganaut and I tackled Pandorum, a 2009 film whose back cover sounded strangely similar to Event Horizon. I now bring you my review of this Denis Quaid featuring film.
