Loot Crate Dead

This month I got the joy of having both my Loot Crate and one of it's many rivals Collector Corps arrive at the same time. For both of them the theme was related to Deadpool for obvious reasons. Loot Crates theme was Dead which related to both Deadpool and to the Walking Dead which is awesome because I just came back from Walker Stalker London. Basically I've had a pretty awesome few days with the only down point being work which I still kinda love...I've had a great week. In Loot Crate's usual fashion they smashed the theme of Dead. The crate was on point with it's DIY function that opened into a scene of walkers trying to get through a gate. I don't know who they have as a graphic designer (total lie it's Zack Finfrock for the ...

The Walking Dead

I'm not going to beat around the bush. All the spoilers!! Carl finally got his cherry popped eye shot out in a way which doesn't quite follow how it happened in the comics but was nonetheless satisfying to witness. In the comics the then-leader of Alexandria named Douglas is the one who shoots Carl in the midst of the attack. In the series it goes down in a very similar fashion but as much as I was looking forward to it getting to this point I forgot how brutal it is. As annoying as that little kid was and as much as I was cheering as he was ripped to shreds (I'm a horrible person) there is a small part of me that just didn't expect it to go down like that. An entire family in one go. It. Was. ...

Z Nation

When most people think zombies in relation to a television show their first thought usually goes to the now well known and beloved franchise that is The Walking Dead. However there is another zombie show which is highly under rated and unknown by the vast majority of the public...Z Nation. A SyFy channel creation this everything the Walking Dead isn't. Now coming to the end of it's second season the show has stuck to it's guns as a B movie in TV show format and if I'm honest it works... The basic synopsis is: Three years after the zombie virus has gutted the country, a team of everyday heroes must transport the only known survivor of the plague from New York to California, where the last functioning viral lab waits for his blood. Without fail every episode creates a ...

Walker Stalker Con London

Continuing on from my previous post I got the great news yesterday that I would be attending Walker Stalker Con London as a volunteer in February! For those of you unaware, the highly popular comic and TV show spawned it's own convention bringing together it's fans, actors, writers and so much more. Previously only held in the states it's finally made it's way across the pond for the first time and is set to be an event not to be missed. When I heard about it I was already invested in a number of projects so couldn't afford to buy tickets then. Not expecting them to sell out so quickly I took a chance and left it, but by the time I decided to see if I could get one all of the ones that I would have gone for ...

Fear the walking dead

With just under a month left until the hit zombie thriller The Walking Dead returns to our screens, there's no better time to review the prequel spin-off that started a few weeks ago Fear the Walking Dead. Set in Los Angeles at a period when the zombie outbreak is merely a rumour in the conspiracy forums of the internet, we follow a unique extended family as they deal with the outbreak as it starts to break into the public eye slowly but surely. Having watched the series from the start and also having read the comics I know that this prequel is entirely new ground. I also know that it's being handled just right with the outbreak not being something that people belive yet, it would start slowly, spreading until it reached a point that it couldn't be stopped or ...

Spoiler Alert

When will we learn that social media is evil when it comes to spoilers. Gone are the days when you could avoid the score of a game you had to miss watching to do something else. When all you had to do was avoid the water cooler, the news and the paper. No, the 80's and 90's are well and truely over...we don't have that luxury anymore. If you miss something when it shows for the first time now you are well and truly fucked because you now have to avoid everything. The world is literally out to ruin your experience. That was yesterday. Now the world has figured a brand new way to screw with you. As we all know the pages of popular shows are followed by literally millions of people so you would be right in ...
