Tim Seeley’s new ongoing series EFFIGY was announced for January 2015 release at the VERTIGO imprint at DC Comics.  See Comic Book Resources for more on the story and an interview with Seeley.

As part of New York Comic Con’s Vertigo: Defy Conventions panel, the DC Comics imprint is announcing that Tim Seeley, who is currently co-writing “Grayson” and Batman Eternal,” will make his Vertigo debut in January 2015 with a new ongoing series titled “Effigy.”

The series, illustrated by relative newcomer Marley Zarcone (“Madame Xanadu”), is about a former Hollywood child star-turned-Z-lister named Chondra Jackson who returns to her hometown of Effigy Mound, Illinois after a sex tape scandal. Troubled by her own personal life, she finds a seemingly impossible crime — a fresh corpse in an ancient Indian burial site. Even weirder, the murder resembles a scene from an episode of the old TV show, “Star Cop,” a live-action children’s show about a kid detective, that she used to star in.


Hoax Hunters is moving to Heavy Metal!  Get all the details at USA Today

Beginning this winter, Heavy Metal will be releasing monthly comics as part of its growth as an all-media company. “Season 2″ of the series Hoax Hunters, which follows a group of supernatural investigators tackling various urban legends around the country, is slated to be the first title on the Heavy Metal brand.

An Evening with HACK/SLASH

The crack staff at made the trip down to Chicago to see HACK/SLASH on stage… ok, it was just me.  And since I won’t go down to Chicago for just one thing, I planned a few stops along the way!


First stop was Toy de Jour, this LEGO man and monkey combo came home with me.  The store was packed with toys, great prices and something for everyone!


The planned trip to Challengers Comics and Conversation didn’t go as well as I didn’t plan for enough time for traffic.  They closed at 5, I arrived at 5:20.  No 3-D Cowboy for me.

Dinner at The Roost Carolina Chicken was a definite success!  Best biscuit I’ve ever had, great mac and cheese, and the chicken was tasty.

Then I made my way to the CIC Theater to take in Strangeloop Theatre‘s production of HACK/SLASH


The play opens with the “Catchers Mask Killer” from the first HACK/SLASH book, moves onto the Dr. Gross scene from HACK/SLASH the Series one, hops to the Candlemas Murderer fight from ENTRY WOUND, and finishes with SLICE HARD.   Slashers include Dr. Gross, the Candlemas Murderer, Hibachi Devil, Acid Angel, Ashley Guthrie (in teddy bear form), X-O, Waking Man, Mortimer Strick and Emily Christy.

Much like the comic, the show incorporated a lot of humor throughout.  The elevator scene was hilarious. The fight scenes were fun, and I avoided the front two rows to miss becoming blood splattered.  Using Alan Knight’s radio show as a voice over during scene changes was a great touch.  Jean E. Burr was immediately recognizable as Cassie and had her attitude perfect throughout the show.  Tim Lee’s Vlad took a little bit to grow on me, but had won me over by the end, making me miss Vlad a little more.  A couple of the slashers really stood out as well.  Kara Charlton’s Ashley was a great use of teddy bear puppetry, and Richard John McLain’s Mortimer Strick nearly stole the show!  (One specific Mortimer Strick gag may have been my favorite part of the production.)

I’m no theater critic, but I know I enjoyed myself, and I think any HACK/SLASH fan would get a kick out of seeing the show.  I also think that it would be a good introduction to HACK/SLASH to anyone that is unfamiliar with the book.

program stuff

Here is the program, postcard, coaster and business card for HACK/SLASH!

I’d like to give a big thanks to Maria at Strangeloop for everything and to remind everyone that shows take place every Friday and Saturday through November 1st!  Get your tickets here!
