Last week’s episode of “The Strain” was chock full of information via flashbacks on the history between our little Nazi Vamp and all time party pooper, Herr Eichorst (Richard Sammel) and our sword wielding concentration camp survivor, Abraham Setrakian (David Bradley). While Guz was stuck in jail with his infected friend, Neeva and the Luss children are saved by ninja vamps. All this action has made me thirsty. Let’s stop by the convenience store… we should be safe, right? Read the rest of this entry
Rejoice! FAN EXPO Canada is back, T-Dot (resident and visiting) peeps!
What’s “T-Dot”, you ask? Well, that’s just me shouting out the glorious city of Toronto with my best urban inflection. FAN EXPO Canada, of course, is the third largest pop culture event in North America, a worthy happening for any lover of comic books, sci-fi, horror, anime or gaming.
Now entering its 20th year (you’re all grown up!), and boasting over 1000 exhibitors over 750,000 square feet comprised of both the north and south buildings that make up the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, FAN EXPO Canada expects to host well over 100.000 fans.
If you plan to be one of them over the next four days, follow me after the jump for a highlight list of some exciting events on a schedule brimming full of exciting events!
It’s another Wednesday and that means another fascinating title released via Image Comics.
I know, I know. This particular column has been dipping into the Image well quite a bit this year – but believe me, all of those titles have been worthy ones to read. And if history is any kind of teacher, then so will that publishing company’s latest offering, the supernatural tale called Wayward.
Follow mw after the jump for the mystical scoop on the new series.
Evil exists in darkness, but flees at the first rays of light, except when you’re a vampire, who’s able to hide underground or in dark rooms; shades pulled closed. We witnessed the moon’s eclipse of the sun in last week’s episode; now our heroes make their way in a team effort to track down the Master. Who will they use as bait? Did you ever wonder how Eichorst became the Master’s second in command? Maybe we’ll find out on this week’s episode of “The Strain.” Step lightly, their hearing is enhanced.
This has been a weekend of beginnings and endings here at Biff Bam Pop!. Last night we saw the series eight premiere of “Doctor Who” with a brand new actor in the title role, and tonight, we’re looking at the end of “True Blood,” yes, the final episode of the series is here at last. Meet me after the jump, for my review of the hopefully appropriately titled “Thank You.”
We learned two things in episode 5 of “The Strain”: making house calls can be dangerous; a Strigoi and a Nazi are both evil creatures, and New York City is in deep guano. Yes, my little blood banks, the Master with Palmer’s help has started a plague that cannot be stopped. What does this have to do with the upcoming eclipse? Plenty! So grab your protective bag of garlic and follow me. Read the rest of this entry
If you’re like me, you use the internet to learn, connect via social media or maybe do some research, but the internet is also used as a tool to reveal the evil activities of corrupt men. By spreading the word, we are able to keep evil in check, right? Eldritch Palmer is well aware of the power of an informed public, and on last week’s episode of “The Strain,” he had his henchwoman, Dutch Velders eliminate the threat. Where does this leave Ephraim and Setrakian? In deep guano if you ask me. I wonder if our lovable Rat Terminator, Vasiliy, has figured out what’s spooked New York’s vermin. Let’s find out after the jump… Read the rest of this entry
“Coffee, tea, parasites…?” Watch out for those frequent flyer perks; they can be a real bummer. The last episode of “The Strain” showed the physical changes taking place in the infected survivors of Flight 753. While Gabriel seemed to welcome the loss of his manly parts, Ansel was freaked out about his craving for a bloody steak. Jim’s made a deal with the devil, but will he come clean after Ephraim and Nora do the autopsy on Captain Redfern? Grab your isolation suits and follow me into the morgue. Read the rest of this entry
