The Raven (Philip J. Riley’s Nightmare Series book 3) by Eunice Sudak (book review)

I chose ‘The Raven’ from BearManor Media’s ‘Philip J. Riley’s Nightmare Series’ books mainly because I was familiar with this 1963 film. Just in case you don’t know, its three stars were Vincent Price, Peter Lorre and Boris Karloff with Hazel Court, Olive Sturges and Jack Nicholson in supporting roles. It was one of the […]

Everything Sucks! (new Netflix comedy: think Stranger Things without monsters).

Here’s the first trailer for another new series from Netflix, this one – Everything Sucks! – following the rites of passage of some AV Club geeks as they navigate retro 1990s High School in the USA.

Illustrators #18 (magazine review).

Hardly surprising when the opener is ‘Mad’ caricature artist Mort Drucker. Over the years, you’ve probably seen his art but not put a name to his drew them. Drucker was […]
