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.

SINK #3 (Comix Tribe, December 20, 2017 release date) “A Head Full Of Wasps”. Story by John Lees. Art and Colours by Alex Cormack. Letters by Shawn Lee. Logo by Tim Daniel. Sink #3 will make you see red. Blood red. It’s splashed all over the pages of this story, seeping into each and every panel, even before the violence begins. “A Head Full Of Wasps” speaks to the buzzing that occurs in so many brainpans in these troubled and violent times - - and the red that is visualized when some of us experience injustice, brutality, cruelty, or abuse and then seek retribution, revenge, and bloody justice. If only everyone could read this story, and then remember it whenever their cheeks flush with anger - - and think before they act. Yeah, I’m a pipe dreamer. I also just set out to write a review. Don’t know why I’m treating SINK #3 like this is a morality fable. Have you ever read a simple but well-written story that leads to your thinking outside the box about oth…
SANDMAN Vol. 1: PRELUDES & NOCTURNES TPB: Sandman Vol. 1 Writer: Neil Gaiman Artist: Sam Kieth, Mike Dringenberg
With Neil Gaiman revisiting the Sandman universe with his new mini, Sandman: Overture, this seemed like a good time to review his original masterpiece. In the first volume, the Sandman is captured by a rich occultist who endeavors to capture Death and make it do his bidding. Instead, he captures the Sandman whom he imprisons for 70 years. Eventually escaping, he learns that the symbols of his office have since been turned into powerful relics used by the mystical community. On a search for the symbols of his station from which he draws power, the Sandman must deal with Constantine, go through Hell itself, and stop a deranged inmate of Arkham who suddenly has power and the sick mind to put it to use. Neil Gaiman likely needs no introduction if you’re familiar with Sandman. It’s his best known work and one of the few graphic novels ever to make the New York Times Bestselle…
