The Boston Herald has run a report that local police are cracking down on venues that allow any sort of “dangerous behavior” on the dance floor, a.k.a. moshing. The local House Of Blues was cited when a mosh pit broke out during a Flogging Molly show. Sixty people engaged in an “aggravated mosh pit dance” and since no security intervened, the venue was cited. Oh, and it should be noted that not a single injury was reported. The House Of Blues is working with the city to address these concerns.
I almost feel bad bringing you all the news that you are about to read, but unfortunately on top of the fact that we will have to start putting up with the “TWATLIGHT” inspired reboot of the classic “TEEN WOLF” film (no) thanks to MTV, but we will now be subjected to a COMIC book version of the series thanks to Image Comics. Below you can catch a glimpse of the cringe worthy cover and get all the details (If you care).

“Scott McCall’s life is a living nightmare. Sure, he’s co-captain of the Beacon Hills High Lacrosse Team and he’s got a hot new girlfriend named Allison who adores him — but Scott was bitten by a werewolf. And every time he gets excited, the claws come out. And the hair. And the fangs. Which might be okay, except Allison’s father leads a specially trained group of Hunters who want him dead. Scott’s managed to keep his secret safe, but what happens when he can’t reverse the process? In this original comic book story based on MTV’s new hit series, Scott’s stuck — and nothing can change him back. Will he stay a Werewolf forever? The horror begins here.”

Negative reviews do not even begin to cover whart is thus far a very short shelf-life for Image Comics, “BAD DOG”, which debuted late last year. The series is only a little bit of an “underdog” (Yea, we are back up and kickin’ pun lovers!), but who knows…maybe you will find something to love with the 5 page preview. Read on for the skinny!
“MARTYRS” fans, do you hate the fact that your favorite foreign horror film of the past decade will be being remade for American audiences by the same people that brought you the stomach turning (in all the wrong ways) “TWILIGHT SAGA”? Do you wish that you could get your “crazy religious fanatic” horror fix elsewhere? Well then, boy oh boy, do we have the web-comic for you! The series we are talking about is the deeply disturbing Indie series, “XTIN: THE DRAGON’S DREAMWORLD”, which is currently available for preview online. Is it violent? You betchya. Is it disturbing on every level this side of “CROSSED: FAMILY VALUES”? Oh yea. Do we know what the hell it is about? Nope. However, the series looks very promising, and inside you can get a 3 page preview of (what we assume) the first issue. Read on for the skinny!
Alright so I was able to cut Marvel Comics SOME slack regarding the whole “CURSE OF THE MUTANTS” storyline, but this has officially drawn the last straw for me. Inside we have a mammoth 11 page preview of the second issue of “X-MEN VS VAMPIRES” that drops this Wednesday, and while this would usually be awesome, for some unknown reason the book inserts a fanged Moby Dick. Yes. You heard me. Read on for the skinny.
I normally would be having a complete and udder field day with the “WTF OF THE DAY” segment, but today I don’t even have any words. Inside you’ll be able to view a 5 page preview of the upcoming horror anthology “NIGHTMARE WORLD VOL 2″ which drops this Wednesday and is a literal melting pot of different stories and characters. Read on for the skinny!
Alright, I swear to all of you that I don’t have anything against the fictional creeper that parents used to say that they allowed to slide down your chimneys in the middle of the night and eat your favorite holiday cookies. Now I know that this is the second day in a row that I have chosen a Christmas themed news bit as my “WTF Of The Day”, but with all that said I feel as if I might have helped clear the air just a bit. Now that we are all on the same page let’s look at today’s mind f*ck that is the George A Romero (“DAY OF THE DEAD”, “DAWN OF THE DEAD”) inspired ‘NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD HOLIDAY SPECIAL’ #1 that drops this December. The story is part of publisher Avatar Press’s ongoing “NIGHT” series, and if you scroll down you can get all the details on the book.

“Ho ho ho ’tis the season.. for zombies! There will be more than just chestnuts roasting on an open fire as a large family gathers to celebrate the season, a raging snowstorm has buried their remote, mountain farmhouse in virgin snow, with no way in, and no way out. But a dark, despicable family secret that lay buried in the barn will not stay dead, and the resulting orgy of bloodshed, murder and cannibalism will transform this into anything but a silent night! Warn your children: This year, it is NOT Santa Clause coming down the chimney! Mike Wolfer provides the Regular edition cover, Raulo Caceres shares the spirit with the Wraparound cover, and twisted Matt Martin’s Gore cover spreads the Holiday cheer all over the floor.”
