(Recommended Reads) "HOW CAN YOU WATCH HORROR WHEN YOU'RE DYING?"

From DAY OF THE WOMAN

It's been really horrifying and I'll be the first to admit I've avoided blogging on here or on Icons of Fright because I always leave a little piece of myself in everything that I write. Knowing that I could very well be gone in a flash, I've been selfishly holding on to each piece I have left. I've always prided myself on being a strong woman, but god damn if cancer doesn't make you feel the most vulnerable you ever will. I've always watched a large amount of horror movies, but since being diagnosed I've found myself almost exclusively watching horror. From my initial emergency room visit to the entire hospital stay and now in recovery, my media consumption has been dominated by horror movies (Well, and Monday night viewings of RuPaul's Drag Race). It's one thing to explain away watching some of the depraved stuff you see in horror movies when you're healthy, but how can you watch horror when you're dying?

Boone is back! The new Nightbreed comic looks great!

From BLOODY DISGUSTING

 



 Since the announcement that BOOM! Studios would be reviving Clive Barker’s “Nightbreed” as a new comic book series, we’ve been dying to know who the creative team would be. BOOM! has just announced in a press release that Marc Andreyko (“Torso”) will write and Piotr Kowalski will take on art duties. Obviously neither creator is a superstar, but it leads me to believe that they are huge fans of the series, as BOOM! has a penchant for picking passionate people for big projects...

 

DC NATION has a fun new take on Green Arrow and Black Canary (Spoiler: Ollie is still a douche...)

BLOODY DISGUSTING ( @BDisgusting ) says Elric is coming back to comics!

From BLOODY DISGUSTING

A stunning new comic adaptation of the classic Elric of Melniboné novels by Michael Moorcock! The ancient island of Melniboné has been ruled by Elric, the albino emperor, for millennia. Reliant on magic and herbs for his strength and prolonged life, Elric’s grip on Melniboné is crumbling, as his people slide into decadence. Now his envious cousin Yyrkoon, Prince of Melniboné, plots to overthrow him and claim the Ruby Throne for himself!

Now this is what I call a teaser! The TV version of Satanico Pandemonium's dance!

From ARROW IN THE HEAD

Here's a great way to start your Monday: An exclusive clip from this Tuesday's "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series"! And it's not just any clip, this is the introduction of Eiza Gonzalez's Satanico Pandemonium! Of course, we all recall the amazing scene the first time around, when it was Salma Hayek coupled with a rather large serpent. You would have thought it impossible to fill Salma's shoes, but take one look at Eiza and you'll have to think again...







Here's looking at you my fans, friends and followers...
