This past week Life with Archie #36 came out, and if you’ve been paying attention to various news outlets, and the comics press for the last few months, you know it’s the death of Archie Andrews. But that’s not the end of it, it’s not even the tip of the iceberg. We’ll get a bit of background, and learn all about life and death with Archie, after the jump.
Holy West Side Story! There’s going to be a rumble in Roarton and the gangs are gearing up for one heck of a battle with Gary and the living aka Pulse-beaters acting as the Jets and Kieren and the partially deceased aka Rotters acting like the Sharks. Maxine will play the part of Officer Krupke and Amy (Emily Bevan) and Philip (Stephen Thompson) the star crossed lovers. Giving tribute to the amazing Broadway show and film and the beautiful music of Leonard Bernstein and Stephen Sondheim, let’s get started, shall we? Read the rest of this entry
Sometimes, you have to take a stand even when it’s dangerous to do so. Philip stood up for the partially deceased and became an outcast. Amy learned that Simon wasn’t into her, but Philip was. Kieren finally told us what happened on his rising, but will he fall victim to Maxine’s plans to rid the world of the partially dead? Wipe your face clean and join me at the Norfolk treatment center for my recap of this week’s “In The Flesh.” Read the rest of this entry
As a ghost investigator, I’ve always said you are what you are; alive or dead, and that goes for zombies too. Last week’s episode of “In The Flesh” enforced that theory when Freddie tried to come between Haley’s and Amir’s marriage and when Simon revealed that he was using Amy. Poor Kieren, who I’m guessing was a sweetie pie while alive, has kept his moral compass even after becoming one of the shuffling dead. Will Kieren regret joining Simon’s revolution? Will Amy keep her secretary job? Wipe off your flesh colored makeup and find out. Read the rest of this entry
Last week’s episode was crazy! Kieren and friends are forced to work on a chain gang. Philip dates partially dead hookers. Simon served sheep brains to his dead guests at the ULA party. Maxine posts pictures on her wall, but unfortunately for Kieren, we’re not talking Facebook. Will the PDS victims survive Maxine’s draconian takeover? Grab your plate of brains and follow me.
The war is on between the radical Undead Liberation Army and the Human Volunteer Force, and while the Vicar hoped for a second rising, his heart attack enabled Vicus Maxine to steal the book and the names of Roarton’s re-animated. Kieren is not only on that list, but out of a job thanks to Gary, a bounty hunter who hunts the rabid dead. Will Amy and Simon, both disciples of the Undead Prophet, convert Kieren to their radical beliefs? Let’s visit the merry town of Roarton to find out. Read the rest of this entry
You see the work of Marie Gilbert here on Biff Bam Pop! every week. Our Steampunk Granny regularly reviews the cool stuff here, episode by episode recaps of “The Walking Dead,” “Bates Motel,” “True Blood,” and “Orphan Black” among others. Her interviews and ghost investigations are top notch. Marie rocks, and we love her, but now we have an extra special reason to be proud of our Steampunk Granny – she’s now a published novelist. Meet me after the jump and I’ll tell you all about Roof Oasis.
What is it with our fascination with the shuffling, rotting, dead people? Do zombies help us deal with our own unavoidable appointment with death? Maybe… maybe not, but you have to admit that zombies are never dull and there are books, movies and television series to prove this. Last year, BBC America showcased a three part supernatural drama series called “In the Flesh,” created and written by Dominic Mitchell, it focuses on events after the zombie apocalypse and in particular on the rehabilitated zombies. Can zombies mingle with the living? Find out after the jump. Read the rest of this entry
