As you may be able to tell from the (in)frequency of my postings as of late, I have been a tad busy. Fox Atomic has another movie releasing very soon (The Comebacks), and helping to put the finishing touches on that puppy has eaten up my precious comics-reading and videogame-playing time.
Also, with Halloween coming up, we have a whole mess of events lined up for our latest graphic novel, The Nightmare Factory! Most (actually all) are NYC based, so if you’re fortunate enough to live in The City do stop by and say hi! The full list is below, but the first event (a signing) is tonight, and if you get there early enough you can even say hi to Steve Niles, writer of 28 Days Later: The Aftermath graphic novel!

In case you missed ‘em, check out some nice review blurbs for The Nightmare Factory!
September 17, 2007
"In a fall season typified by much more categorizable frights, Nightmare Factory provides a bitterly entertaining treat for those attuned to its storyteller's grim sentiments."
September 26, 2007
"Makes for deliciously bleak reading as its damned protagonists find themselves ensnared in metaphysical traps they often barely comprehend."
"These twisted tales based on Thomas Ligotti's stories come alive in the hands of Ben Templesmith and Michael Gaydos, and others. Retaining unique styles, Ligotti's brand of psychological terror still permeates, oozing into your nightmares."
I shall post my weekly pull list tomorrow… I haven’t been able to get to the store yet! (*sheds a tear)
