I have been reading AICN for well over 5 years and have never posted before. In fact, I never had an account until about 2 minutes ago. And now? My first first.

I think a comic series is the way to go for him. And hey, you guys gonna do a double-length column next week?!? ;^)

You fucking useless twat. <p> How was that?

Be interesting to see how it translates. I never have nightmares though - despite how much horror I read and watch - so I guess I'll have to buy it. Or maybe I could make on up - something involving being trapped in a giant bowl of pudding with a naked Rosie O'Donnell. (shudders)

"Hey, Buzz, let me tell you about this dream I had last night--"<p>"NO-NO-NO!"<p>"C'mon, it was really cool and would make a great movie. I was beating up all these bikers and taking their women, only they didn't look like real biker women, they looked like models and actresses pretending to be biker women and the bikers were going to stick your head in one of those things from the saloons in the old westerns that Doc Holiday used to spit in and Doc Holiday was in it and he said he had my back, and for some reason he flew one of those A-Wing fighters from the STAR WARS movies...you know the ones nobody cared about and not even Lucas could sell the toys of...Anyway you were running around with that brass thing on your head, whaddya callit--"<p> "A spitoon. Don't tell me your dream. I don't care--"<p>"And like, I had a band and played lead guitar but all the instruments were made of balonga. Now, you might remember that Doc Holiday was flying the A-Wing fighter and he kept switching from Val Kilmer Doc Holiday to Dennis Quaid Doc Holiday and I think there was even a Dennis Hopper Doc Holiday in there because he played him in a TV mini-series back when his career was temporarily derailed thanks to drugs. Okay, the Peanuts gang comes to my concert and you've got the spitoon on your head and my drummer, Neal Peart of your favorite band Rush--"<p>"I hate Rush. Your dream would make a terrible movie."<p>"No, man, if they could just film my dream, just film it directly, it would make the greatest movie you ever saw. Anyway, every chick Scott Baio ever dated wanted me and they looked like they did when Baio originally dated 'em--"<p>"I don't watch that show. I watch THE TWO COREYS--"<p>"That's amazing because they were in my dream, too. Like a cameo, like a hommage, they were fighting vampires which is why this dream would be the perfect sequel to LOST BOYS, TOMBSTONE, STAR WARS and RACE FOR YOUR LIFE, CHARLIE BROWN. Now, here's the sick part--"

I mean, I don't want to read comic reviews from last week, next week. So maybe those of us who bother to read this review-free talkback should review something from last week. I will do so as soon as I get home from work.

Too bad I didn't buy any comics last week.

...the won where the Hulk followed Betty Ross on her honeymoon to Niagra Falls. When he nears the falls, he's jumped by Tiger Shark who is hiding out there after having killed Namor's father in a back issue of SUB MARINER. See, Tiger Shark thought that the Hulk was the point man for an attack by the Defenders who might be aiding Namor in hunting him down. It was a better fight than you would have thought, with Tiger Shark keeping Hulk in the water. SPOILER ALERT: Hulk slams Sharky against the side of the cliff, ending the fight.<p>I can't recommend this one enough...but you guys were probably hoping for a newer issue.

Ligotti is so easily the greatest horror writer nobody's ever heard of... anything that gets him more exposure is good news.

Coz that just fucked me up - Seriously. I am fucked up.

So, after my grandma went crazy and died from brain cancer, I had a dream that I was in her house and everything was all decrepit and Sepia Toned and from the root cellar I heard this consistent banging. When I opened it my dead grandma lumbered up the stairs accompanied with the smell of brimstone. She looked like she had been ripped in half and then crudely stiched back together with thick leather straps. She told me "I'm starving in Hell." But before she moved to eat me completely she was overwhelmed with hunger and snapped her spine so she could bend completely in half and eat the meat of her own thighs. I woke up screaming.

I have had the same reoccuring nightmare since I was a kid. My parents have this freaky as hell Michaelangelo's David head in their house. It is marble, all white with blank eyes and the neck is a black cube that sits on any table. I have this dream (been moved out for years and I still do!) where he climbs out his black "stump". He is dripping with blood, as if it was painful for him to escape but he does it anyway. He then chases me down in my parents house and kills me a different way every single time. One day he might lift me Michael Myers style and stab me through the heart with a kitchen knife, other times he might just push me down the stairs. Each time I "die", it actually feels real! Not only that but I am still "alive" for a good 10 seconds after my dream death so I can watch this freaky ass David turn his head and look into my eyes before I finally wake up. Michaelangelo may have been a genius but I will always hate his work...can't help it. Thanks!
