The Walking Dead press kit

Click for a larger imageNot much has been said about the press kit for season 2 of The Walking Dead and I’ll admit it’s not as nice as the one for season 1 (but then again, when is a press kit that nice? Well, not very often). Still, this one is quite interesting and contains a lot of stuff about the show, and most important; the two first episodes of season2. I have a copy on its way to me as we speak (together with a copy of the special edition DVD of season 1 (released on October 4th) and I’ll let you know more about both once I have them in my hand. Until then, enjoy these photos.

Two interesting books...

Posted: September 30, 2011, 23:31

I got some really nice items in the mail today that I want to show you. The first one is a copy of Stephen King is Richard Bachman by Michael Collings. Published by Overlook Connection Press. It’s a very nice book about King writing as Bachman and it also have a lot of covers of Bachman’s books from all over the world.

If you want a copy you can get either from Overlook Connectoin or Amazon


The other thing was the huge Dark Tower omnibus. And it’s no joke that it’s huge. And the first thing I noticed when I opened the box it was in is how beautiful it is. It’s a really beautiful book and I can’t wait to check it out. It’ll give me a chance to catch up with this comic.

If you want your own copy of it for your collection you can get it here
