Let’s have a nice warm welcome for our newest contributor here at evilgeeks.com, Flaccid Snake.

 You’d be a fool not to read the following review.

6dbdd-cover

This is the first collection of the (2010) comic book series, American Vampire. I’m not typically a huge vampire fan, (True Blood was good until maybe the third season and was pretty much dog shit after that) but this story interested me because it takes place in a Western setting and features two great writers. This was Stephen King’s first real foray into comics.

The Dark Tower: A Journey with Arthur and his Ka-Tet

There comes a moment in everyone’s life, mostly unexpected, when things align in such a way that they achieve a sort of clarity into their own hearts. Whether it be good or bad usually depends on the person, but sometimes, you just have no control over it. Such is the tale of Roland of Gilead. Such is the will of Ka.  An undeniable force that dictates and wills our lives in a way that is near unchangeable, Ka is a rollercoaster that takes you where it wants you to go. You just better be sure you are ready to deal with what it throws in your way. I will also try and keep this as spoiler free as possible, but some things may need to be said to get my point across.

My journey with Roland and his Ka-Tet, who after a while became my Ka-Tet as well, started about 2 years ago, but did not hit full steam until about 6 months ago. I had read the Gunslinger, which I profiled for you guys here a while ago, but for some reason or another, I had not gotten the chance to pick up the second book. I think I was afraid to be honest. The Gunslinger was such a great book, and although some might have seen it as incomplete considering the way it ended, I did not. I thought if Sai King had decided to call it quits on the series there, I may have been fine with it. But something kept nagging me about it. Maybe it was my need to see how Roland would continue on with his unbendable quest to see the Tower…or maybe it was something else? I put the thought away for a while, and picked up some other books, mainly the Thrones series, and put my thoughts of Roland and that damned Tower away. Things like that have a way of hiding themselves, but never truly going away forever. That fucking Tower was always calling me.

Villain Spotlight: Blaine The Mono

blaine cover

It’s been a heavy reading season folks. I know you have all been frothing at the mouth for a new Villain Spotlight, and as your just and fair ruler, I would be honored to provide you your medicine. It really has been a heavy reading season for your boy Arthur, and in the midst of consuming every page of I possibly can of the Dark Tower series, I find myself constantly thinking about one thing…riddles. Deep in the City of Lud sleeps a terrifying giant of steel and speed. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you, Blaine The Mono.

Horror of Horrors: The Stand

Disclaimer: I expect this to have a great deal of profanity, because sometimes it’s hard to express my misery with normal words. I’ll try to keep it civil, but if you don’t like swear words, then you are a soulless husk. I am sorry to be the one to tell you. Also, there will be some humor, so calm down.

the stand

Welcome back all of you heathens and super flu survivors. I, as always, am your bringer of the end and ender of the beginning, Arthur Harkness. I know you guys haven’t seen too much of me over the last few months, and there is a reason for it, but we shan’t go into it here ( hint: I accidentally let loose Belial, and in the process, wound up going on a sort of pilgrimage to kill the fucking thing,) but in my sort of half vacation/half fuck you, I wound up catching something I have been wanting to watch for quite a while, but I just couldn’t devote the time to. I rarely have an opportunity to sit for 8 hours and watch a whole miniseries, as I like to watch it all at once, so it took a while for me to actually get to it….and I got to it, and I wish I had left it there. If you follow me on Twitter @ArthurHarkness, you’ll know that I live tweeted my entire foray into this dangerous bog of bullshit. All 8 hours of it. Ladies and gentlemen, take my hand and delve into the world of Stephen King’s The Stand, and make sure not to fuck around as we could all easily die.
