Some pop culture vultures write about what they love!
New Book based on SHERLOCK HOLMES
From the official press release . . . . .
Sherlock Holmes is back at Pro Se Productions, and this time he’s not alone. Author Brad Sinor’s THE GAME’S AFOOT: A HOLMESIAN MISCELLANY, a collection of Holmes related tales, is now available in print and ebook editions from Pro Se Productions.
“Holmes,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “is not only one of the most iconic characters ever created, he is also one of the most complex. This makes it possible to take a Holmes story in any direction possible, from continuing to walk in Doyle’s well regarded footsteps to going places and distances no one would ever imagine. Combine that with the rich supply of supporting characters that have always been a part of Holmesian lore, as well as those who populate his place in time, and the field is ripe for wildly imaginative cases and adventures. Brad Sinor delivers exactly that in THE GAME’S AFOOT, breaking many boundaries with Holmes and others, while still delivering tales that are reflective of the style we all love and the canon that so many adore.”
He solved cases others considered impossible. Those we know about. But there were other events taken on by the world’s best known detective and those he called friend as well as enemy that explored, encountered, and even exposed the impossible. And now those tales of terror and deduction are gathered together, stories that pit Sherlock Holmes and those around him against forces beyond mortal man, beyond even this planet. But also, let it not be forgotten that evil need not be supernatural to be truly horrific. TheGame’s Afoot: A Holmesian Miscellany is a collection of tales by author Brad Sinor that add a facet to the world inhabited by Holmes and characters both associated with him and those who had their own stories to tell. Action, adventure, terror, and mystery await readers as they follow Holmes and others into The Game’s Afoot: A Holmesian Miscellany. From Pro Se Productions.

Wrightson’s name was synonymous with the best the horror comics genre had to offer and he often spoke of the lasting influence EC comics titles such as the original TALES FROM THE CRYPT and VAULT OF HORROR had on his work.So, it seems only appropriate that two of Wrightson’s stories are included in Super Genius’ new revival of the TALES FROM THE CRYPT series.Issue #2 (in comic shops this Wednesday) features two “lost classics” from Wrightson, “Stake Out” and “Feed It!”, both appearing in color for the first time. The two stories had originally appeared in black and white in other publications but when CRYPT editor Jim Salicrup rem…
It was a cold night, but it didn’t stop the faithful from spending some time on the main drag in Oxford PA for the monthly First Friday celebration. This month, the theme was Super-Heroes and employees (and sometimes customers) at several establishments went along with the theme and dressed appropriately. (We had our Batman tee shirt underneath our sweater but spared the innocent, only flashing it to friends.) It was the perfect theme for the recently opened MAROON HORNET COMICS shop at 45 South Third Street in Oxford. Owner Randy Grace employed the mercenary-for-money Deadpool as a store greeter, and local writer Greg Cox was in attendance, signing his new book. The store is fully stocked now, and has an impressive assortment of comics, games, posters, and related toys and accessories. Randy and Lori Grace are very friendly and happy to be able to provide a comics outlet in Oxford for local pop culture fans.Greg Cox is a best-selling author, who’s earned a deserved rep…
