Glenn Walker, Jason Shayer, JP Fallavollita and moderator Andy Burns regrouped for the first Biff Bam Popcast of the new year, in which we look back at our favourite films and comics of 2012. We also discuss which films we’re looking forward to in 2013 and the pros and cons of the Superior Spider-Man. Watch it all on-demand right here!
Sometimes, you can get really attached to a fictional character.
It doesn’t matter the genre: fiction, science fiction, horror, fantasy, mystery or romance. It doesn’t matter the format: film, novel, short story, graphic novel or monthly comic book. A good character resonates, both effecting and affecting our minds and hearts. But when it comes time for that character to, well, end, when we view the last frame of the film or turn the last page of the (comic) book, we can feel like we’re losing a close friend. And, sadly, that’s what Wednesday, January 9, 2013 brings us. An ending.
The start of this new year means saying goodbye to a beloved character – no, a series of beloved characters – whose fictional lives have blossomed into friendships with a great many readers over the last four years.
With the publication of monthly issue #40 today, we say “goodbye” to Gus, Jepperd and the highly acclaimed comic book series, Sweet Tooth.
Celebrating the fiftieth anniversary of James Bond in the movies, Skyfall is the twenty-third official film in the series, and is now showing in theaters across the world. Today, I’m going to take a look at a new book from DK Publishing – “Bond on Set: Filming Skyfall” by Greg Williams. More after the jump.
Tonight on this edition of the Biff Bam Popcast, Glenn Walker, Emily McGuiness, Jason Shayer, JP Fallavollita and Andy Burns are talking all horror, just in time for Halloween. We’ll recall the books and comics that gave us chills growing up and still to this day. It starts at 10pm right here, or watch on demand after 11pm!
When folks think classic horror, sometimes they think of the silent days, sometimes of the Universal boom of the 1930s, some folks even think of the slasher flicks of the 1980s. There are exceptions along the way however, one or two classics from the old days that rise above the rest. The British horror from 1957, Curse of the Demon, is one of those. More after the jump.

I’m an adult, I’m all grown up. Nothing should scare me any more, short of death, taxes, and, of course, The Bride. But as an aficionado of horror movies, there are some flicks that do get a rise out of me. There are film nuggets that actually scare the crap outta me, some to the point where I won’t even watch them again. That’s how scared they get me. They are the stuff of vampires, gremlins, devil dolls, and the ultimate of all evils, mankind itself. We’ll take a look at one of them right now that haunted my childhood, after the jump.
Should all go according to plan, we’ll have a live Biff Bam Popcast featuring a talk about animated adaptations of comic book properties. Do they work? Why? And what do we want to see translated to animation in the future. Join our motley crue of conversationalists tonight at 10pm live right here, or watch at your leisure later!
