Awesome review of a great new comic
Originally posted on Graphic Policy:
Archie and his crew have met many folks. The Punisher, the cast of Glee are just two examples, and in those two, no one died in the end. Archie vs. Predator #1 throws all of that out, taking the bloodier tone of Archie’s recent hit Afterlife with Archie, but showing it all in the cartoonish style we’re accustomed to. Teaming up with Dark Horse, Archie Comics has the Riverdale crew take on their toughest enemy yet, the Predator! Written by Alex de Campi, with art by Fernando Ruiz, the first issue is a bit strange, as it has much of the tension and build up we’re familiar with in Predator, but all with the classic Archie style.
The first issue sees Archie and his friends head out for vacation to a paradise island. The usual hijinks ensue, and it’s all entertaining. But really, the comic is all…

Today we look back at the actors we lost over the last two weeks. There have been a number of people in the horror and sci-fi community that have passed away and I think they deserve their due. Two of them come from Rob Zombie films such as The Devils Rejects and The Haunted World of El Superbeasto.
Tom Towles 1950-2015
Towles was well known to horror fans for his roles in Zombie’s films House Of 1,000 Corpses as Lieutenant George Wydell. He was also in The Devil’s Rejects, Halloween, Prophecy II, and was Otis in Henry: Portrait Of A Serial Killer. He also portrayed Harry Cooper in the 1990 remake of Night of the Living Dead.
Geoffrey Lewis 1935–2015
Frequently appearing in Westerns during his early career, he is best known as a frequent fixture of Eastwood’s films. His appearances include Midnight In The Garden Of Good And Evil, Any Which Way You Can, Thunderbolt And Lightfoot, and High Plains Drifter. He also had a supporting role on the short-lived Alice spinoff Flo, from 1980-81, for which he earned a Golden Globe nomination. He appeared in such films as Night Of The Comet and Maverick and TV shows including Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Hawaii Five-O. He also started in two Rob Zombie Movies mentioned above and an episode of the X-Files.
Robert Z’Dar 1950–2015
Robert Z’Dar, the cult actor best known for his role in the Maniac Cop series, died in Pensacola, Florida, on Monday. He was 64.
Z’Dar, who appeared in more than 100 films, was a cult movie favorite, often starring as a villain. He gained popularity when two of his movies – Soultaker and Future War – were spoofed on Mystery Science Theater 3000.
Sometimes Sci-fi thrillers can be like Alien or Event Horizon or the Thing, sometime they can be like some thing the Asylum would make.
TIME LAPSE is the feature directorial debut of Bradley King, who co-wrote the script with BP Cooper. It was produced by BP Cooper and Rick Montgomery (Happy, Texas) and edited by Tom Cross, Academy Award®-winning editor of Whiplash. The film had its North American premiere at the 2014 Seattle International Film Festival and has won 25 awards at over 65 film festivals worldwide.
“A smart sci-fi thriller with a mind-bending premise, TIME LAPSE combines the ingenious structure of Memento with the dark comic irony of The Twilight Zone,” said XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon. “It epitomizes the exciting new wave of ‘lo-fi sci-fi’ films reported in the Wall Street Journal that rely on original, clever stories and masterful filmmaking rather than hundred-million-dollar visual effects budgets.”
TIME LAPSE explores the possibilities of time travel through a machine that is capable of taking pictures 24 hours into the future. When three friends discover this mysterious machine in their neighbor’s apartment, they encounter a number of pressing questions, not least of which is the whereabouts of their neighbor. Realizing the potential impact of the machine, Finn (Matt O’Leary), Jasper (George Finn), and Callie (Danielle Panabaker) attempt to cash in on their discovery. But, when a dangerous criminal learns their secret, the friends must set aside their differences and confront the paradox of a future that was once predetermined and entirely uncertain. Using an engaging blend of action, humor, and philosophy, TIME LAPSE is an original thriller that not only keeps the audience guessing, but also explores questions of pre-determination, free will and destiny.
“After a thrilling festival run around the globe, we are beyond excited to put the North American release of TIME LAPSE into the capable and creative hands of such a forward-thinking distributor as XLrator Media,” said filmmakers Bradley King and BP Cooper in a joint statement.
The deal was negotiated by XLrator Media’s Barry Gordon and Lea Flome with Paradigm Agency’s Ben Weiss and Meghan Oliver on behalf of the filmmakers.
Thirteen years after the original series run, FOX has ordered the next mind-bending chapter of THE X-FILES, a thrilling, six-episode event series which will be helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter, with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson re-inhabiting their roles as iconic FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. This marks the momentous return of the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon, which remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history.
Production on THE X-FILES event series is set to begin in summer 2015. Further details remain under wraps and will be announced at a later date.
THE X-FILES originally premiered in September 1993. Over the course of its nine-season run, the influential series went from breakout sci-fi favorite to massive global hit, and became one of the most successful television dramas of all time. The show, which earned 16 Emmy Awards, five Golden Globes and a Peabody Award, follows FBI special agents Scully (Anderson) and Mulder (Duchovny), as they investigate unexplained cases – “X-Files” – for which the only answers involve paranormal phenomena.
Now what about the comic book from IDW which depicts the season 10??
