When Charles Stross isn’t writing mind-blowing space opera about the future of banking, he’s the ultra-prolific author of two long-running series. And one of those, the Laundry Files, has won praise (and a Best Novella Hugo) for its look at a spy agency that deals with other-worldly threats. »
I mean, let’s be honest: giant red crimefighting demon or not, wouldn’t you want a pint at a place called “Rawhead & Bloody Bones?” Well, as you’ll find out in this exclusive preview of Hellboy and the BPRD: 1953... not many people would. »
Snowpiercer, the action-packed 2014 dystopian drama, is jam-packed with evocative imagery. The train against the snowy countryside, the radically different cars on the train, as well as the battles that happen on it. Choosing a single moment for a poster is tough. Which is why artist JC Richard didn’t choose just one. »
The fifth issue of Kaptara, one of our favorite sci-fi comic books of the year, is out this week, and within it is a spectacular array of villains under Villektra’s command.

It’s been a while since we’ve been as excited about a new show as we are about Ash vs Evil Dead, which expands the world of Sam Raimi’s movies with humor, horror, and so much glorious Bruce Campbell. We spoke with executive producer Craig DiGregorio to learn what’s next for the show. »
The producers of the Man in the High Castle TV series spent eight years trying to get it off the ground, and having doors slammed in their faces. For a while, the BBC was going to make it, but it fell through. In order to finally get it made, they had to make one crucial change, that makes it a bit less bleak. »
Ian Fleming didn’t really set out to be a great writer when he first sat down to type what would eventually become Casino Royale—and create the pop culture icon in James Bond that we still experience to this day. It turns out his great reason was a bit more banal: he wanted something to do to take his mind off… »
James Bond is back! And not just on the big screen—Britain’s most famous spy has returned to comics after decades away in today’s release of James Bond #1 by Warren Ellis and Jason Masters.

Imagine being tasked to make a Star Wars poster. How do you take everything you love about even one of the movies and boil it down to a single image? It’s possible, we’ve seen it, but one thing we rarely see is all three movies summed up on one poster. How would that even be possible?
There’s been a bit of a running trend of comics getting picked up for movie adaptations even before they release an issue—and Heavy Metal’s next big creator-owned series, Interceptor, is joining that trend.

Hollywood tried very hard to make Brian K. Vaughan’s classic comic Y :The Last Man into a movie but, finally, everyone gave up. The story was just too epic and too risky to condense into that form. TV has always been the right medium and now that’s happening thanks to a very passionate fan. »
