With Halloween fast approaching, it’s time for False Positive‘s yearly treat for your eyeballs: 31 Days of Halloween! If you’re not familiar, False Positive is a horror webcomic anthology, showcasing short stories of the surreal, fantastic, and macabre. While reading, you might notice that the stories draw inspiration from cult classics, including Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Tales from the Darkside, and The Twilight Zone. In other words, False Positive stories will keep you on your toes– you’ll never be sure exactly how things will shake out. To get a taste for the site and the kind of horrific goodies it offers, I recommend starting at the beginning, with the first story updated on the site:  “Concoction.” It’s sure to satisfy your Halloween story cravings.

Every day during the month of October, False Positive uploads a new horror-themed, pop-culture art piece that’s sure to inspire awe, terror, and perhaps outright giddiness. This is the fifth year in a row that False Positive has engaged in its annual celebration of October in all its glory, so if you haven’t seen the pieces from years past, it’s worth digging into the 31 Days of Halloween inventories and taking a look. Seeing False Positive‘s horror-themed art every year is one of my favorite parts of the season, and it always signals the official start of my favorite month, getting me into the Halloween spirit.

To whet your whistle, here are some examples of art pieces from past 31 Days of Halloween:

spiderman thinks about cash

As I’m sure you’ve heard, Sony finally decided to split custody of Spider-Man, and it looks like he’ll be visiting mom on some very important weekends in the future. After a few personal conversations, I’ve come to the conclusion that most people are pretty excited. I feel that.

A few people are worried, though. Or maybe tired is a better word. News of another “Spider-Man reboot” induces cringing for these peeps, and this is my response to them. There are certain detractors that I’m not going to convince, and to those people I say that perhaps the next decade of big-budget movies should be something that they avoid, because franchising and multi-part plots aren’t going away. That’s great news, though!

Salt Lake Comic-Con 2013

Ashley Walton —  September 9, 2013 — 1 Comment

Over the weekend, Salt Lake City had its first comic convention, with record-breaking attendance for an inaugural geek fest. At Salt Lake Comic-Con, Stan Lee and William Shatner showed up, along with some lesser-known celebrities, but the highlight of the con was the fans. Because so many fans purchased tickets, the event had to move to a larger convention center– tallying about 70,000 tickets sold and turning away thousands more after the event sold out. The fan energy and enthusiasm was contagious– there were so many costumed individuals happily crammed together and swooning over the booths. We’ll post on some cool stuff we got from the Con in a later post, but here are some of our favorite pictures from the con. Enjoy!
