Look at all the wonderful movies out there just waiting to be watched! Seems these days, many of the highly coveted films are those derived from comic books. The most popular are those being delivered by superhero comic book giants like Marvel (The Avengers) and DC (Batman). What you may not know is that there are many graphic novels that have been made into movies, who's characters don't have super human strength, nor do they have the physical ability to fly. In this weeks conversation, my co-host, Internet movie critic Larry Domkowski of Must See Movie, and I, Greg Morgan, the Reel Movie Guy, will do our best to stay away from superheroes and gravitate more toward the heroes from other graphic novels that were made into movies.
Our show will be broadcast live on Blog Talk Radio and from 11:00 pm until 11:30 pm EDT, then continuing our conversation on Google Hangouts On Air from 11:30 pm-ish until 12:00 am-ish EDT...

BATS AND BONES~
Bats and Bones is IPPY award winning author Jeffrey Hickey's second work for children. This collection of spooky tales for middle school aged children and above is a subtle masterpiece of fright and emotion. Hickey wrote all the stories, the lush music, and does all the voices for the audio book. His wife, Karen Kiser, contributes the cover art, along with some penny whistle and a little piano. The inside illustrations, layout and design are by Rachel Betz, who also designed Hickey's first work for children, Wages Creek.

A Woman with (No) Strings Attached~
Lucie had always found skiing far more exciting than sex. That is until one day, the sex got better.??For years she had thought orgasm was an unattainable myth, but after a lifetime of boring, conventional sex with her husband, the 58 year old family doctor discovers an entirely new side to her personality. ??She joins an internet site for adults looking to meet for sex just for sex’s sake, not connected with love, or meant as a gift for the other person. ??Unusually, this was the idea of Lucie’s new American partner Tom, who lives apart from her in New York. Tom has voyeuristic tendencies and he is excited by her detailed reports as she contacts, meets, and sexually explores a variety of men. Tom and Lucie in her guise as her alter ego, Adrienne, delight in uncovering this daring and unconventional new aspect to her character. ??Both are having fun, but will Tom always accept Lucie’s erotic liaisons, or is the bubble destined to burst? A Woman with (No) Strings is an unusual and explicit memoir of one average woman’s journey to not-so-average sexual enlightenment.
The DC Poetry Project's Open Mic Call-In Show is designed to provide a forum for the poets and others to critically assess the cultural and social issues that affect all are lives. It's also designed to serve as a vehicle for self-expression and give voice to the ideas and thoughts that only the power of poetry can address.
