Aliens from Dark Horse

Aliens

Staff writer, Justin Spotten has submitted his latest article: Aliens from Dark Horse.

A lone figure walks cautiously down a dimly lit hallway. They are frightened, mumbling to themselves and flashing their light around in every which way. They don’t see the shadow descending from above, don’t here the soft swish of a tail or see the faint glint off the slimy carapace. They only turn when they hear the snarl; a low undulating rasp that quickly crescendos into a paced hiss. Only then do they turn in horror as the beast curls back its lips angrily and lashes out with deadly accuracy. They only evidence left after the gruesome scene is a splatter of blood along the floor and walls. Ridley Scott, along with the mad, surreal designs of H. R. Geiger, birthed the perfect hunter; and Dark Horse helped make the Alien immortal.

Lost in the Shuffle: The Case of Evil Ernie

Evil Ernie comic

Staff writer, Jason Dyer, has contributed his first article: Lost in the Shuffle: The Case of Evil Ernie.

I wage a one man war to return my favorite comic book character Evil Ernie back to print. While other kids in the 90’s were reading the X-Men, with their multiple pouch uniforms. Or Superman who was red and blue for some reason, I was busy reading Evil Ernie from Chaos! Comics. I was convinced he was the best, the strongest, the most powerful superhero (well he was more an anti-hero but I digress) of all time. I debated Evil Ernie Vs Superman, Evil Ernie Vs The Hulk, Evil Ernie Vs Darth Vader with my fellow comic loving friends. To me at the time, it seemed as if Evil Ernie was unstoppable, looking back now I was so very wrong.
