A Little Kong: Son of Kong (1933): Kong Hits II

By | March 10th, 2018|Features, Kong Hits|

If you thought that a hastily thrown together sequel rushed into production and released as soon as possible as a cynical gash-grab to capitalize on its far superior predecessor was a modern phenomenon you are sorely mistaken! That’s been happening since pretty much the advent of filmmaking in general. Case in point: Son of [...]

A 1999 Interview with Brian Herbert & Kevin J. Anderson

By | February 21st, 2018|News & Opinions|

Way back before the turn of the century (which is an extremely fun phrase to write) myself and aspiring author, Justin Rickard, decided to start an independent, self-published magazine.

Obligatory Best of List for the Dumpster Fire Year That was 2017

By | January 1st, 2018|Ideas & Excuses, News & Opinions|
