I hope all of you zombie horror fans out there have a great holiday. I wish you all a safe and Happy Christmas.

Freddy VS. Jason VS. Ash and other Comics

I guess I've fallen into a graphic novel phase pit and I can't get out of it! I've been reading tons and tons of graphic novels lately. It was something I've always had an interest in but no one else I hung out with liked comics.

I've been reading: The Walking Dead, Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash, Locke and Key, Scott Pilgrim, N. by Stephen King, Incognito, Preacher, and Chew.

The book I loved loved loved loved was Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash ::FvJvA::. It was like they took the nonsense from the Freddy vs. Jason movie, wrote a comic sequel to it and made it fucking amazing. See I liked the FvJ, but I still bash it anyway. Adding Ash to the story line was so fucking cool. Pretty much the town where all of Jasons murders occured started to build up the town to forget about all of the Jason events that happened. They just so happened to build an S Mart where Ash works at in Michigan? Minnesota? I forget. But he comes down there and he has to find the book of the dead before Freddy gets it and uses it (which he does). The comic has a lot of great dialogue that really makes Ash and Freddy's characters come alive. I can't recommend this book enough. It's out of print, I found mine at Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash for $20 but I'm sure you can find it on Amazon or Ebay.

The one day I was at Barnes and Noble and I came across Book 2 of FvJvA called Dream Warriors. I thought it was the sequel to FvJ and I was about to read it. Then a few days later going up to the Secret Stash and found the original. That was a great day. I'll probably read the second one in the next few days.

Preacher is another good read. It's about a preacher who gets possessed by Genesis which is an angel/demon. It was created when a demon and angel fucked. It took Preacher himself and possessed him and now the Saint of Murder is out to kill him along with a lot of other people. It's pretty twisted.

The Walking Dead is self explanatory.

Locke and Key I haven't started yet but I've been wanting to read it.

CHEW is awesome, it's about a cibopath (someone who can get psychic reads by eating something). This means he's spent working and eating flesh to get stories. It's a great read.

Scott Pilgrims kind of dorky and lame but it's not terrible.

N. by Stephen King is sick! It's really one of those stories that make you thing. The artwork is phenomenal in it as well.

Incognito was just a typical hero villain story. This is where the bad guy turns out good.

So yeah, nothing interesting to talk about. I have a lot more things on the way.

Thoughts on AMC's The Walking Dead

I don't want to make this a long blog so I'll keep it short haha.

I thought the first two episodes (possibly 3) were good. I really loved the scene where Rick sees his family, and they realized he wasn't dead.

The other scene that was awesome was when the black guy was popping heads with the rifle after Rick left for Atlanta. They followed the book pretty well until then.

Now following the book is, let's face it, impossible. The comics skip seasons with the turn of the page as to where the show takes it day by day. I think the comics had a little bit more gore, and of course less cursing. Merle Dixon did drop the N word, but that's not considered a curse.

I don't know how I feel about the ending. Season 2 could go a lot of places. I don't think it was smart giving the first season just 6 episodes. I think they tried to cram somethings but at the same time it was lacking.

Whoa I added color to my page. I guess I'd give it 3.5 brains out of 5. I love zombie stuff, and all of the survival strategizing. This show had potential. I hope the 2nd season is better.

Maybe it was the acting??!?!?!?

I'm writing another blog.

December to Dismember

Wow no posts in December?!?! I've been lacking in any kind of news and I apologize. I've just been extremely busy with the holiday season coming up. I'm probably one of the worst Christmas shoppers in the world. I never know what to get anyone. This year I started earlier than normally... by like a day or two haha. I guess I just want to be clever about it and not disappoint people.

ANYWAYS! I'd like to address the post I put up on my Zombie Digest Blog status the other day. It was a Chuck Klosterman piece for the New York Times about zombies, pop culture, and his brilliant mind and how he uses it. I've read parts of Klosterman's, "Sex Drugs and Cocoa Puffs". It was funny at parts, and I wish were able to finish it. I don't know where the book is haha.


I gotta finish the article too . I was half asleep when I saw it so. That'll be for another post.

So after 9-10 years, I finally watched the first Lord of the Rings. It was on Netflix and I was absolutely bored so I started to watch it. I know it's not horror movie related, but I have to say that the orcs in that movie were pretty bad ass looking. It wasn't CGI and whoever did the make up effects on them made them creepy as hell. Overall the movie was better than what I had expected. Frodo is a little bitch by the way. He was given sword and still got his ass kicked. Aragorn and Gimli were cool though.

I have some posts coming up. I'll get to them eventually.

Some things that I'm posting soon:

- The Walking Dead Season Finale/Future.
- Slashumentary I found on Netflix review.
- Graphic novel N. by Stephen King review.
- Cool shit for Christmas.
- You've Got Dead on You awesomeness.

And I'm sure I'll find other shit to talk about and bore you all.
