Review – Wormwood, Gentleman Corpse: Mr. Wormwood Goes to Washington #1

He doesn’t have any skeletons in the closet because he’s an animated corpse with a drinking problem and very literal worms in the head and everyone knows it. He’s a perfect candidate for our times! See below for preview pages and a review of Wormwood, Gentleman Corpse: Mr. Wormwood Goes To Washington #1.

Photo Gallery – Hasbro SDCC Exclusive: Voyager Class Optimus Prime

I finally got the chance to unbox one of Hasbro’s SDCC 2017 Exclusives: the Transformers The Last Knight Voyager Class Optimus Prime. The details are excellent, the figure is sturdy and easily posed, and I had a great time getting photos (much to the amusement of my neighbors, who you think would be used to seeing outdoor Transformer photo shoots by now.) See below for all the pics!

Neil Gaiman’s “A Study in Emerald” to be released by Dark Horse Comics

As this is one of my favorite Neil Gaiman stories (in the top 10 at least. Top 20? They’re all good. Don’t make me choose!!) I’m very excited about this release. See below for the official press release from Dark Horse Comics on the Sherlock Holmes/H.P. Lovecraft-inspired graphic novel A Study in Emerald.

Binary System Podcast #97: Friday the 13th the Series – The Fangirling

Thirty years ago today, a little TV show called Friday the 13th the Series aired for the first time (…in Canada, it didn’t show up in the US till October 3.) It was scandalously gory and violent for network TV at the time, and ended up being nominated for several Emmys, and we adored it. We’d make lists of all the cursed objects we could remember, wear out our VHS copies (…shut up…) and write fanfiction (shut UP) where Micki and Ryan finally got together.

Listen in as we break down a few of our favorite episodes, racing the clock to get in as much fangirling as possible.

Friday the 13th the Series – 30th Anniversary Screen Cap Gallery

Friday the 13th the Series – 30th Anniversary Screen Cap Gallery

The title of this TV show confuses an awful lot of people, but forget about Jason and the mask: Friday the 13th the Series (sometimes called Friday’s Curse, just to make things more confusing) was a Canadian production in the late 80s, featuring a curiosity shop of cursed antiques, a devil’s bargain, an aged mentor, and two “cousins” with unbelievable sexual chemistry. It was awesome. And this month is the 30 year anniversary of the first episode (well, September 28 if you’re looking at imdb, October 3 if you’re looking, um, anywhere else.)

In celebration, Binary System Podcast presents a gallery of ads, promo shots, and a pile of screen grabs, because we’re still completely obsessed. What started out as a plan to grab snaps of 80s costumes, action shots, amazing hair, and goofy villains, quickly spiraled into getting all the evidence that Micki and Ryan were meant for each other. COUSINS BY MARRIAGE. TOTALLY LEGAL.

Preview and Review – Transformers Lost Light #9

Last issue (spoilers!) (no seriously if you haven’t read last issue quit reading!) we found out exactly how obsessed Nautica is with bringing Skids back: she’s been hiding his brain-module behind her eye patch. Inside her head. She was keeping his dead brain inside her head. It’s a gesture of extreme devotion and oh my lord is it creepy. I mean it makes wearing a vial of your lovers blood around your neck look reasonable and understated in comparison.

As creepy as it is, it’s still not as far as Nautica’s willing to go.  See below for preview pages and a review of Lost Light #9.

SDCC 2017 – Mairghread Scott & David Rodriguez of IDW’s Transformers

At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con we got to talk for a few minutes with IDW’s David Rodriguez and Mairghread Scott, writers for IDW’s Transformers. We discussed the end of Mairghread’s Till All Are One series (and why she wrote Starscream the way she did, because almost against our will we became huge fans of the character) and about IDW’s new First Strike arc and what that means for the Transformers and G.I. Joe. Check it out after the jump!
