About John Evans
John has loved movie monsters for as far back as he can remember. He's since collected up as many comics, statues, and autographed material related to movies and music that he can get his hands on. He is particularly interested in the critical and analytical discussion of the best stories the horror genre has to offer. One of his largest works on the topic is a study on the portrayals of people with disabilities in horror films.

Pretty soon, the Resident Evil film series won’t be the only thing out there made by Sony Pictures, based on a video game by Capcom, directed by Paul W.S. Andersen, and starring Milla Jovovich. All parties will soon return for a new film based on the popular Monster Hunter game series, and the folks at Sony Pictures have just debuted a first look at the two leads in a series of teaser posters on their official Twitter page:
Ever since bursting onto the horror scene in 2004 with Saw, writer/director/producer/actor Leigh Whannel has been a prominent figure of the genre. But the early success of The Invisible Man has increased the multi-talented entertainer’s visibility with frequent collaborator Jason Blum of Blumhouse. Variety reports that the successful opening weekend of The Invisible Man led to a first-look deal with Blumhouse for all future Whannel productions. read more
When it comes to comic book artwork, Todd McFarlane’s work on Spider-Man and Spawn titles belong in an elite category with few peers. The artist broke barriers with his updated look on Spidey, and he continues to cross milestones with Issue #301 of Spawn and beyond as the longest running creator-owned comic of all time. However, McFarlane has never drawn these two most beloved characters together on the same page and he rarely ever draws Spider-Man (save for a few in-person sketches here and there) in the 27 years since leaving Marvel Comics. That all changes with new cover art McFarlane created for the 50th anniversary edition of Overstreet Comic Book Price Guide! read more read more

Todd McFarlane just posted a typical video on Instagram of him inking Issue 305 of Spawn, but there is nothing typical about the announcement he makes at the end of the clip! In the video, McFarlane Announces that Jason Shawn Alexander’s last issue will be Issue 305, and that Philip Tan will return to penciling duties starting with Issue 306:
“We’ve got some pages that I’m doing. We’ve got some pages that Philip Tan’s doing. Philip Tan’s gonna be jumping on board, doing a couple issues here. Unfortunately, sad news on Jason Shawn Alexander: this (#305) will be his last issue because he’s doing a great job on Killadelphia. If you haven’t seen that book, go take a look at Image.” read more read more
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment has the antidote to the animated Mortal Kombat specials of the 90s that were so kid-friendly, they could have aired directly before and episode of Care Bears.
