Eisner Watch: The Wicked + The Divine

As we get closer to the 2015 Eisner Awards, I thought it was time to reflect on some of the incredible nominees this year, in particular the titles up for Best New Series. This category is an especially important one, because it often reflects the tone of comics as whole for that year – the […]

The sixth annual Toronto After Dark Film Festival kicked off last night at the Toronto Underground Cinema with not one, but two screenings of the horror-wrestling film Monster Brawl.
