[Interview] Rob Hill - The Bad Movie Bible

Let's face it; we all love bad movies in some shape form or fashion. It's okay to admit it because we have all watched one or two movies where we knew the plot wasn't great, the quality just a touch shabby, and the acting at times as dire as the dialogue. Yet in their "badness" there is something inherently enjoyable otherwise the phrase "so bad it's good" simply wouldn't exist. So in the vain of Kim Newman's encyclopedic horror tribute "Nightmare Movies" and Mike Fury's explosive examination of the the action genre "Life in Action", author Rob Hill has brought together some of your favourite titles (and his) in the epic "Bad Movie Bible". If you love reading insightful and fun-filled books on the subject of films then this is definitely the one and you can read my review of it here.

[Interview] Harry Markos - Putting the Comic in Comic Con

From Friday to Sunday the Olympia Exhibition Centre is taken over to make way for floods of merchandise dealers, props, stages, photo booths and signing areas whereby eager fans can collect autographs of their icons of yesteryear and today. It was whilst strolling along the event’s “Comic Zone" that I met the humble brains behind a small publisher that is a giant in the field of graphic novels in the UK.
