Zenescope

Zenescope Oz #reflection

Zenescope Oz I want to say that I might have watched the story once, maybe twice when I was growing up. And then there were the countless variations of the story. Yeah, it seems unheard of that anyone could have missed The Wizard of Oz and not know what it …

Mountains of madness

At the Mountains of Madness #reflection

At the Mountains of Madness So, I thought and thought about what I should be doing for this last reflection for the month of October. There are a number of things I have read in the past month that would work but none of them really grabbed me for what …

Complete Dracula

The Complete Dracula #reflection

The Complete Dracula I remember growing up when in my mind, vampires and Dracula were one and the same. I saw the name of the monster as the name of any monster of a similar form. And to take it a step further, all vampires were always dressed in formal …

silent hill past life

Silent Hill Past Life #reflection

Silent Hill Past Life Nope, we aren’t going to dip into our past. That would just be weird and we would all be a bit uncomfortable and maybe even a bit confused and no one would walk away from the conversation happier for having been there. Or something… Actually, before …

Sabrina

Chilling Sabrina #reflection

iron squad

Iron Squad #reflection

Iron Squad I am sitting here trying to think of how I want to open this piece. There are about three or four different ways I can say the same exact thing but not a single one of them seems to fit what it is I am trying to accomplish. …

Pirate Eye

Pirate Eye #Reflection

Pirate Eye Working in the library, you tend to see a ton of books. There are any number of possible combinations of books that you might have never thought to see. And one thing I tend to see a lot of is mysteries in so many different varieties. But there …

Morning Thoughts

Morning Thoughts #reflection

Morning Thoughts I have been reading some older comics recently. Pretty much some select comics from the 60s and 70s. Some observations come to mind as I delve into the depths of our past. Granted I grew up on comics in the late 70s and 80s. I couldn’t really tell …
