When I was young and my parents took me to the supermarket, I’d always immediately head for the fruit and veggies section so I could steal all the twist-ties I could safely tuck into my pockets. I’d then take them back home so I could create little people and have them fight to the death. Seriously. I’d have the little twist-tie men duke it out. The winner would live to fight another day, and the loser would be skinned alive — which I’d accomplish by peeling the green plastic off the wire. Now, I do this with people.

A while back on the Dead Pixels Podcast, I had an interview with writer and artist Ben Templesmith about Dead Space. I randomly asked him a question about Doctor Who, since I am a huge fan. He then stated that he was working on an actual Doctor Who comic and it’s even more horror based. The comic that he was talking about is coming at the end of next month and it’s called ‘The Whispering Gallery.” I am very excited about this and Ben has recently showed the three covers to the issue.
