COVID-19: Houston On Voluntary Lockdown starting today

Which means that comic book stores like 8th Dimension will be closed until further notice.

8th Dimension
Jeremy Bulloch is one of three partners who own 8th Dimension Comics and Games

Every comic book store has its own unique personality. Chain stores are no exception and neither is 8th Dimension in the Copperfield district of Houston at 15210 West Road off of FM1960.

While the layout of many comic book stores opt for Wander and Explore, 8th Dimension is cleanly ordered to a meticulous degree. If they have it, you'll likely find it without help, though help is always available.

Where gaming is concerned, they have a staggering amount of store real estate in a separate room behind a door so gamers can game on without being zoo varmints on display to the shoppers and browsers.

The 20 Best CGI Movie Monsters Ever

By Daisy Wardle
Monsters have made for some of the greatest movie antagonists, with the best of them having been able to terrify and enthral in equal measure. From Dementors to dinosaurs, there really is something for everyone – and although these creatures may look horrifyingly realistic, over the last four decades many of these have actually been the result of computers going bleep for months on end.

CGI has come a long way in the years since the technology first emerged, and today it can be hard to distinguish between special effects and reality. There have been some CGI misfires over the years, for sure, but there's nothing quite like a CGI movie monster done right – and here we've picked out our 20 favourites.

Continued at 80sKids.

The Story of Dublin's St. Patrick's Day Vampire
By Mike
We tend to associate Dracula or vampire's here in the U.S. with the Halloween holiday, but in Dublin, Dracula was also synonymous with St. Patrick's Day thanks to a man by the name of Patrick Finlay.

Patrick Finlay, more popularly known as Paddy Drac, was a Dracula impersonator who got his start after a man in a pub commented that he looked like Dracula. A friend printed up cards as a joke with the name "Count Paddy Drac" and after the cards made their rounds Finlay received a call from a local travel agent asking if he would dress up like Dracula in a promotion to sell trips to Transylvania.

Heavy Metal Issue 299

HEAVY METAL RATTLES THE BONES
According to their latest press release, Heavy Metal magazine is announcing David Erwin as Publisher and Chief Creative Overlord. Formerly, David served as Hasbro's Transformers Creative Lead on their boys' properties including Micronauts, ROM, and more. Prior to Hasbro, he served as the Executive Creative Director of DC Comics for 16 years, building their portfolio of brands.

David Erwin

"Unlike the other publishers of fiction, Heavy Metal is a destination brand recognized for cutting edge and inventive stories within the sci-fi, fantasy and horror space. It has influenced many of Hollywood's greatest filmmakers over the years, and we'll continue to be a prime source of inspiration by continuing to deliver our brand promise of great stories and art, as well as maintaining its rock-n-roll attitude of making your parents a bit uncomfortable."
- David Erwin

Good luck with that last sentence, David, as HEAVY METAL has been around since the 1970s and the original teen fans are now grandparents.

David will be working alongside Heavy Metal's CEO Matt Medney, but there's more!

Heavy Metal Magazine also names Joseph Illidge as Co-Managing Editor along side Heavy Metal Veteran Ricardo Llarena. Joseph Illidge, veteran editor from DC Comics' Batman universe, is working with the publisher as Co-Managing Editor.

Joseph Illidge

"Working with the great team at Heavy Metal has been a bucket list experience! The company's name and brand symbolizes the innovation of genre storytelling and the collection of distinctive veteran and new talents. It's an honor to be part of a team dedicated to igniting the company, bringing top-notch creators from around the globe to the Heavy Metal landscape, and paving the way for a new era as the true leader in sequential storytelling for science fiction, fantasy, and horror."

$15,000 was what he and his team were hoping to reach, but instead, as of today, Brian's company, Coffin Comics, has got over 20 Times that Amount! With 16 days left to go, Brian Pulido hit $305,337 from over 2,100 backers so far! All of Brian's stretch goals are exploding!

Apparently Brian's creation, LADY DEATH, remains insanely popular after 25 years!

Will Spawn Reboot Shoot This Year?

By E.C. McMullen Jr.
A live action SPAWN reboot This year? 2020? Don't bet on it. Not with SPAWN creator Todd McFarlane in Vancouver telling Fan Expo audiences at his panels that investors are only now, Now, lining up.

Spawn #1: Now who's Next?

Todd is also telling folks that he himself, despite zero actual investor money committed, will direct.

Seriously, Todd is a great guy and I wish him all the best. SPAWN the Animated series did justice to his vision, but the live action SPAWN was a disaster the series still hasn't recovered from over 20 years later.

And me? I've been a SPAWN fan since Issue 1 and I'd love to see his R-Rated scary creepy SPAWN reboot because that's the only way to tell his story.
