Movies: "Inception" star Tom Hardy has been cast as a lead in the upcoming third Batman film to be directed by Christopher Nolan. It's unclear whether he'll play a hero or villain. Some suspect he'll play the Riddler, but I think we should just go totally nuts and start a rumor that he's playing Azrael or something...

Ben Templesmith’s Custom ‘Dracula’ Novel Now On eBay


Between the premiere of the new "Twilight" movie, the "Curse of the Mutants" storyline launching in the X-Men tomorrow, and the thousand other stories, comics and goddamn cell phone commercials about vampires that sprout up every time you kick over a rock, one could be forgiven for feeling a little weary of the mythical bloodsucking monsters, who have managed to supplant zombies as the favorite overused trope in comics of the moment...

When you're running a comic book store that's got a big event coming up and you want to promote it, there are a lot of different routes you can go with. And if you're Richard Neal, owner of Zeus Comics in Dallas, Texas, you go with the most awesome option possible:

Zeus, the real-life store behind the fictionalized web series "The Variants," will be hosting a signing with "Choker" and "Fell" artist Ben Templesmith on April 3, and to spread the word, they've released a promo on YouTube designed to out-monster-truck even the most amazing local business commercials:

The tongue-in-cheek nature of the ad means most of what's promised won't actually be at the shop -- nachos are a maybe and the Bouncy Castle is right out, but I'm still holding out hope for ComicsAlliance favorite Man-Leia -- but the Evil Trees* alone are almost enough to make me want to drive down to Texas and check it out myself...

EXCLUSIVE: A Page from the Diary of ‘Choker’


"Choker" #1 hits shops early this Wednesday, a teamup between artist Ben Templesmith and writer Ben McCool set in sick, wonderfully sleazy environs of Shotgun City, a retro-futuristic hellhole that McCool describes as " a crazed amalgamation of 1930's gangland Chicago and 'Blade Runner's Los Angeles" with a dash of "Sin City" and "Transmetropolitan...
