Tonight on the show we have Charles Rosenay who I have had a tough time trying to get on my show but now with me planning a trip to ROMANIA to take the Dracula Tour NEXT October, I thought it be a good time to have the director of the trip on the show in time for Halloween. Then we have the head honcho and owner of Double Midnight Comics on the show with us. Then Director Phillips Thomas of a small indie Horror movie from Anchor Bay on late to night talking about his movie Sanctuary, a rather grusome horror thriller. Pam and I will also discuss the up coming season of Supernatural and Sons of Anarchy and the new movie we just watched Paranormal Diaries: Clophill, from Image Entertainment.

On the show tonight from one of the worst and most disgusting Horror movies to come out, Septic Man’s Robert Maillet, then from a recorded interview done at the Boston Comic Con, 30 Days of Night and Squiddler Artist Ben Templesmith. Pam and I also talk about Under the DUMB(dome) and The Strain and the end of True Blood. I also finally got the HALLOWEEN soundtrack in on VINAL YAHHHHH we might play a track or two.
TONIGHT on the show the comic book coverage continues as we have reps from both Zenescope Entertainment and IDW Publishing on the show with us talking about Grimm Fairy Tales and X-files and more V Wars coverage btw did I forget to mention I am writing V Wars the Book vol 3 next year. Pat Shand writer of many Zenescope books comes on with us and Nate from IDw talks many good things about the company.
The original story ran for 81 issues during the resurgence of Horror comics in the 70s. The ban by the fucked up and stupid as shit comic code authority had lifted its horror problem and Tomb of Dracula Werewolf by Night and many others got their own book.
Ghost Rider aka Johnny Blaze was the original. If you read Thunderbolts he’s GR again there is also a car driving rider but I have not picked up that book.
Jim shooter was the editor on the book and had a rotating case of people working on it.
The book was filled with GR fighting demons monsters and a lot of devil worshippers and Satan cults and freaks. This book was DARK REALLY FUCKED UP AND MORBID at times. Makes you wonder why the movies staring Nic Cage were not more dark than they were. They had the devil theme and grave yards but a satanic cult would have added a bit more to the story.
Other Marvel heroes showed up and GR even joined the Champions a short lived team of west coast heroes led by Angel from the X-Men. Karen Page former DareDevil girl friend had her Hollywood carear in Ghost Rider till it bottomed out and she became a whore and drug addict.
As the series went on it got darker and Ghost Rider got meaner. John was trying to free his soul from Mephisto and even learns who the demon with in him is. Zarathos a vengeance demon. Hence the title Spirit of Vengeance. After the book was cancelled John would return in vol 2 in 1990 learning he had a brother Danny Ketch and Dan would be come the new Ghost Rider this time with a more darker biker look. This was used for Cages costume in the film.
Ghost Rider is currently part of the Thunderbolts let’s by The Red Hulk and can be seen every month in that book by Marvel.
Pam and I will be at the Boston Comic Con Sunday the show will be in Sunday night. We are giving away copies of V Wars and interviewing people when we can.
It started today head over to the Seaport world Trade center to check it out. Lots of great artist and writers from your favorite comics will be there.
Bradley Cooper’s first movie was The Midnight Meat Train. A highly underrated Horror movie from the mind of Clive Barker based on his short story from the Books of Blood vol 1 (It co stared Connie Jones who played Juggernaut in X-Men 3) . Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gun made several low budget Horror movies till SLITHER (Yondu from GotG Michael Rooker stars in the film as the villain. Mike just got done with The Walking Dead) made him a bigger director.
