The Known World of Game Of Thrones mapped onto rotating Earth

During a re-read of A Song Of Ice And Fire, I wanted to the a better sense of the scale of the world. There are some great two dimensional maps out there, including an interactive map at that shows character paths over time, but I was looking for something more visual…

I have seen the Supergirl pilot, and it’s terrible.

The Supergirl pilot found its way to the internet last week nearly a full 6 months before its intended air date. I’ll admit, I had high hopes. In an age of shaming, sexism, and the very loud complaints of a very vocal minority as pertains to male-driven hero movies, a show about a strong female hero is a logical, important, and maybe even necessary thing to do. Plus, Supergirl is a pretty great character, and other than 1984’s oddly entertaining but still terrible big screen release, she’s never been given the…

Bionic Antboy webcomic

Shameless self-promotion time. Bionic Antboy is a weekly web comic that originally started out as a video game idea a long time ago. Since The Practical Dead is in an on-again/off-again state of flux, I started working on Antboy when time afforded it. Now, with 4 months worth of pages under my belt, and more pages already in the can, it’s probably a good time to share it.

If this is October then there must be undead in Toronto

It’s October again, which means, for Toronto, a whole lot of undead happenings.  Beside the Toronto Zombie Walk (and Halloween Parade), two great live horror film adaptations return to Hogtown. At Fan Expo 2013, we had a chance to talk for a few moments with Christopher Bond and Mike “Nug” Nahrgang about their involvement with the upcoming productions of both “Evil Dead the Musical” and “Night of the Living Dead Live“. After that is a bonus interview that was originally recorded at Fan Expo 2012, and thought to be lost when we had a…
