Personal Quote: *We* are the music makers... and *we* are the dreamers of dreams. — Willy Wonka

Goth Day is exactly what it says on the wrapper—a day where the Goth scene gets to celebrate its own being, and an opportunity to make its presence known to the rest of the world. It all started off as “Goth Day” just in the UK back in 2009—originating as a musical subculture weekend on the BBC 6 music station which focused on punk, Brit-pop and Goth (the Goth feature was on May 22)—but the following year we decided to push the idea across the globe.

For more information on World Goth Day, including links to the many events being held to celebrate the occasion, visit the WGD website.

Hoover_Pandora And who better to celebrate World Goth Day than our resident Goth adventuress, Pandora Zwieback? Generally a happy Goth (yes, they exist) and major horror fangirl who likes to paint and write and hang out with her friends and her new boyfriend, Javier Maldonado, Pan also has her hands full these days battling monsters in her novel series The Saga of Pandora Zwieback—written by yours truly. And you can check out her adventures in these titles:

The Saga of Pandora Zwieback #0: A free, downloadable comic that serves as an introduction to both Pan—with an 8-page story written by me and illustrated by Eliseu Gouveia—and her first novel, Blood Feud (via a pair of preview chapters).

“Pandora Zwieback and the Bloggy Thing”: A 1,300-word mini-adventure at the site Writing Belle that involves Pan racking her brains to find something to write about herself for the fictional horror site The Society of Classic Monsters—the major problem being she’s never written a guest post before. Coming to her aid is her best friend, Sheena McCarthy, who has an idea or two about how the Goth adventuress can promote the books. Think of it as a sequel to The Saga of Pandora Zwieback #0.

Blood Feud: The Saga of Pandora Zwieback, Book 1: This critically acclaimed novel is the beginning of Pan’s story, explaining how she, her parents, and her friends, are drawn into a conflict among warring vampire clans searching for the key to an ultimate weapon (or so the legend goes)—a key that just so happens to have been delivered to the horror-themed museum owned by Pan’s father. It’s a character-driven action-fest that leads immediately into the second novel:

Blood Reign: The Saga of Pandora Zwieback, Book 2: Pan faces even greater challenges as the clans draw up plans to go to war with humanity. Leading the charge is a fallen angel named Zaqiel, whose previous attempt at subjugating the world was stopped by Pan’s monster-hunting mentor, Annie—who, back in the day, was Zaqiel’s lover!

The Saga of Pandora Zwieback Annual #1: A spinoff from the novel series, this 56-page, full-color comic special finds the teenaged Goth adventuress battling vampires and a jealous, man-stealing siren. It features stories by me and Sholly Fisch (Scooby-Doo Team-Up), art by Eliseu Gouveia (The Saga of Pandora Zwieback #0), comic-art legend Ernie Colon (Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld), and Elizabeth Watasin (Charm School), and cover art by award-winning artist Henar Torinos (Mala Estrella).

Blood Feud, Blood Reign, and the Saga of Pandora Zwieback Annual are available in both print and e-book formats. Visit each of the titles’ product pages for more information, including sales links and sample pages and chapters.

LEGENDS OF TOMORROW trailer (CW): Arthur "Rory Pond" Darvill as a Time Master? Hawkgirl? An Atom who actually shrinks? Can't wait to see how it all turns out!
Wed May 20, 2015, 7:43 PM
SUPERGIRL trailer (CBS): The six-minute trailer had me cringing in places, but I'm willing to give the series a shot, if only because of how its "brother" shows, Arrow and The Flash, are so well done.
Wed May 20, 2015, 7:42 PM
THE FLASH Season 1 finale: An episode that takes suspension of disbelief to new heights, yet delivers emotionally. And the Easter eggs for the Golden Age Flash, Vibe, Killer Frost, and the DC multiverse made it easier to overlook the plot holes.
Wed May 20, 2015, 7:39 PM
AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON: Not as good as the first Avengers movie, but enjoyable nonetheless. And James Spader always makes things better!
Wed May 20, 2015, 7:37 PM
MAD MAX: FURY ROAD: That's one long chase scene! :D My one quibble is that Tom Hardy's Max isn't as good as Mel Gibson's—not even close. However, the look of the film is just beautiful!

DAREDEVIL (Netflix): Finally got to see the balance of the series, thought it could have been better with a few less episodes—after awhile, it felt like story padding. But overall I enjoyed it, and look forward to season 2!

DAREDEVIL (Netflix): Saw the pilot and enjoyed it, dark tone and all. And it was nice to see Bill Everett get credit right alongside Stan Lee in the opening titles.

FANTASTIC FOUR trailer: I see the Christopher Nolan/Zack Snyder somber tone is front and center. Wouldn't want to make it too upbeat, now would you?
Tue Apr 21, 2015, 11:46 AM
BATMAN V. SUPERMAN trailer: So in this sequel to Snyder's Watchmen adaptation, with Batman in the Rorschach role, I guess "Do you bleed? You will" will become the new "I'll look down and whisper, 'No.'"
Tue Apr 21, 2015, 11:44 AM
STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS new trailer: It looks amazing, but please God, don't let Abrams disappoint us with the final result!
