The Visible Dork Forty: Random Hilarity

July 18, 2016 // 1 Comment

So my usual pattern here on the Dork Forty is to ramble on endlessly about some funnybook or another. But I like pretty pictures, too. I collect dozens of the things, more than I could ever find time to write about. Some of those go up on our Facebook page (JOIN…US…), while others just go in a folder for some future date when I don’t feel like talking. But lord knows THAT doesn’t happen very often, so they tend to pile up. It’s time, then, to clean house. So [...]

Box Diving for Fun and (No) Profit

March 24, 2015 // 0 Comments

So we had a little funnybook show here in town this past weekend. Nothing spectacular. Just a Masonic Lodge full of comic and toy dealers, and a few local artists shaking hands and drawing pretty pictures. A friendly little con, and a damn fine end to my vacation, where I enjoyed socializing as much as I did box-diving. But I got some of that done, too, and (since my brain is still too vacation-addled to write anything more disciplined) I thought I’d share the loot I snagged. I’m [...]

Countdown to Halloween: Trailer Park

October 23, 2013 // 0 Comments

Horror Movie Trailer Cavalcade! Starting… NOW! Evil Dead 2 is one of the greatest horror flicks of all time in my book, but the thing I love about its original trailer is how serious it makes the film look. Sure, you get the eyeball gag, but they’re trying to play off the infamy of the first Evil Dead (“The Ultimate Experience in Grueling Terror”), and can’t be bothered to prepare the audience for how goofball the sequel really is. But now for a trailer that [...]

Countdown to Halloween, Day 23: Skullcrusher Mountain

October 23, 2012 // 0 Comments

Halloween Mix-Tape! Day 23! Mad Science! And love! Pretorius! Who was all about the love that cannot be named! Frankenstein! Who created life without the benefit of love! And of course my personal favorite… Phibes! Who lived, died, and killed for love! In as many bizarre ways as possible! Oh, and lest we forget… Coulton! Whose song “Skullcrusher Mountain” was the unofficial song of my best friend’s wedding, and just happens to be tonight’s entry in our [...]

Countdown to Halloween!

October 1, 2012 // 0 Comments

There’s a chill in the evening air. Everything’s dying. And the nerd wranglers are out sincerin’ up the punkin patch. Which can only mean one thing: every dork’s favorite holiday has shambled onto the horizon once more, and we must begin preparations for its unholy arrival. That’s right, kids: Halloween’s a’comin’! And with it, a special Dork Forty Halloween mix tape. Of sorts. Every day in October, we’ll be posting a Halloweenie song for [...]
