Syfy is teaming up with Universal Cable Productions for a horror anthology series based on web phenomenon ‘Creepypasta’. Nick Antosca (Hannibal, Friday the 13th) will write ‘Channel Zero’, which Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra) will produce. Each season will center around a new story, with the first season based on the ‘creepypasta’ story ‘Candle Cove’ by Kris Starub. Creepypasta is described as “a form of horror stories that are passed around on web forums from multiple sites with the goal of disturbing and frightening readers. It takes its name from “copypasta,” slang for copying and pasting a block of text from website to website.”

Baltimore: Cult of the Red King #3 Early Review
Writer: Mike Mignola, Chris Golden
Artist: Peter Bergting
Publisher: Dark Horse
Release Date: July 1, 2015
Rating: 9 out of 10
Synopsis: Lord Baltimore discovers an ancient connection to the Red King as things heat up for the team in Carthage.
Our Thoughts: In the third issue of The Cult of the Red King, the crew continues to follow the trail of the Red King to an ancient temple where current citizens of the town have become embroiled in the age-old threat from beyond. Mignola has the ability to capture a multi-cultural perspective, infusing his stories with strange tales and folklore from all corners of the globe, and this issue stands as true testimony to his technique. Staring with Marchand’s brief recollection of a similar incident from his African home and ending with classic European witches shows the full spectrum of the sinister influence in Baltimore’s world and more importantly the variety that fans go to Mignola’s writing for. read more
