Stephen King A/V Round-Up

Above, is the trailer for the “N.” motion comic. It’s a great story, and if you don’t want to dig up the short story, comic books or audiobook, then this is a great way to check it out! I made a YouTube playlist that includes every episode of the series. You can find that by clicking here.

Above is a really rad trailer for Stephen King and Peter Straub’s “The Talisman.” This movie was never made, which sucks because this actually looks really cool!

Reelz Channel put up a video about the top 10 Stephen King movies.

Here’s a sample reading from King’s upcoming Dark Tower novel, “The Wind Through the Keyhole”

For the final portion of this round-up, I would like to introduce you to a new King fan blog and podcast that is out there called Discordia 19. It’s a good listen and I suggest you check it out!

WOAH! That Was THAT Dude? – Wil Wheaton

Trailer for Wil Wheaton’s web show, “Table Top,” on the “Geek and Sundry” Network

I thought it might be fun to do some posts that are kind of similar to the “Where are they now?” posts that I’ve been doing here, but with a little different spin. This is going to be a series of posts that came from my watching Stephen King Movies and going “I wonder who these people are?” and then looking them up on IMDb. This is the first of those posts, and I wanted to discuss Wil Wheaton and why you may know him.

As you should know by now, I am a turbo-nerd. I am also a huge fan of nerd culture celebrities, mostly due to the fact that nerd culture celebs are generally smart and articulate… in other words, they mock the Kardashians rather than kissing their asses. I am a huge fan of Wil Wheaton.  I, unfortunately, have not had the pleasure of meeting him in person, but he seems like a genuinely nice person. As a member of nerd culture, I like having great people representing us, people that are very approachable and friendly. People like Wil Wheaton, Chris Hardwick and Felicia Day are wonderful examples of this.

iFanboy Interviews Walking Dead Creator, Robert Kirkman

In case you didn’t know, iFanboy is one of the top rated comic book podcasts. They recently attended the Image Expo in Oakland, CA and did an interview with “The Walking Dead” creator, Robert Kirkman.

I have been a listener of their podcast and a subscriber of their YouTube channel for a while now, and saw this pop-up in my YouTube news feed.

I happen to be a huge fan of “The Walking Dead” in both comic and TV show form, and figured that you may be as well. Give this a look, if you like.

Video: Stephen King Comic Book Day

I am super stoked that I was able to get caught up (mostly) with my comic collection! While I was out nerd shopping, I thought it would be cool to show you my little spot that I get my fix at, Matt’s Cavalcade of Comics, Cards and Collectibles. I also wanted to show you the comics I picked up for this trip. I am still behind on some of my other stuff, like Joe Hill’s “Locke and Key,” “iZombie,”  “Wormwood: A Gentleman’s Corpse” and a few others, but I plan to go back in a week or two.

This video leads me to a few questions for you…

  1. What else should I be reading? I kind of got out of the super-hero thing when I was a kid, but that doesn’t mean I won’t give them a look.
  2. Would you be interested in a video that goes through my King or entire comic collection?
  3. Should I do more of these videos?

Let me know what you think.

I didn’t just get King comics while I was there, I also picked up some of my regular stuff as well. Here’s the list, if you’re interested. I have included links to the various publishers of these fine comics so you can grab them too, if you want:

  • “Jesus Hates Zombies: A Jurassic Kind of Life 1 &2″ link
  • “Massive Awesome #4″ link
  • “Zombies of Foreign Wars #1″ link
  • “Li’l Lincoln Mini-Edition #1″ link
  • “The 3 Brothers Frog!” link

I am proud to support indie comics and the publishers that put them out. Please show your support for these indie publishers and hit the links and buy some comics!
