    A tale of two heroes: Iron Man and Green Lantern

    in Writing

    The original Iron Man film and the ill fated Green Lantern film were both created with the intention of launching a shared cinematic universe. One would lead to becoming one of the biggest franchises of the 21st century, the other sent their company back to the drawing board.


    These two series have always matched each other quite well, all the way to the point of being Amalgamated into Iron Lantern of the Amalgam Universe, complete with merging even their supporting cast seamlessly.


    What went right, what went wrong and above all else why?

    in Film

         An all new season of THE GRINDHOUSE: WITH CRAIG & JIM Podcast returns as we launch our "DocuPod" series (part podcast / part documentary), and celebrate the release of AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON with an in depth look at the comics-to-film phenomenon.  Our guests include legendary illustrator Adam Hughes (WONDER WOMAN, BEFORE WATCHMEN, LUCASFILM) and film producer Steven P. Wegner (THE BLIND SIDE, THE BOOK OF ELI, PRISONERS), with topics ranging from the box office performance of comic book films at home and abroad, to the recent controversy over comic character "race and gender" swapping.  Adam chats about his personal experiences with the WATCHMEN film and it's director Zack Snyder.  And both film producer and illustrator offer opinions as to what separates a fair-to-middling comic / film adaptation from a truly great one.  Includes film audio clips, archival interviews with Frank Miller, Samuel L. Jackson and screenwriter Tom Mankiewicz, film score excerpts, behind the scenes featurettes on 300, DICK TRACY, SUPERMAN: THE MOVIE and more. "Excelsior!"

    HARBINGER:


       Twice Scott Wolfe has faced this giant of a man. Twice he's barely escaped with his life. If Scott ever hopes to uncover the corruption that is shaping the free world, a confrontation with his most dangerous adversary is unavoidable.

      Even though Scott has gone underground, it doesn't mean he's alone. He has reconnected with Kathrin, the golden-haired beauty who was with him when it all began. He'd long dreamed of the reunion. But now that Monkey Wrench and Gretel are reunited, something doesn't quite add up. Does he risk the blossoming romance to pry deeper? What if she is a danger to him? Will his emotions leave him blindsided by the truth?

      Scott keeps driving deeper into the inner workings of the conspiracy, further from his support and closer to danger. Is it too soon for Scott to be on his own? That question might be answered before he's ready for it.

    DREAMING DEEP~


    By the Winner of two Readers’ Choice Awards from The House of Crime & Mystery...

      The Story
    The hardworking men and women at the Port of Long Beach, California have no idea what’s waiting for them in the deep water. Tugboat Captain Ed Angelus discovers the horror first in a death match aboard the Lady Bulldog, a high-tech z-drive vessel. But when the Coast Guard and Homeland Security arrive on the scene, there’s no trace, and Ed is declared delusional and unfit for duty. A few months later Ed’s former crewmen dredge up something chilling from the depths of Alamitos Bay—something horrific and possibly paranormal. Soon, the truth turns into ugly lies by authorities unwittingly manipulated by a dirty bureaucrat masterminding the investigation. Overnight, Ed finds himself a public enemy at the center of extraterrestrial black ops—outrunning the law until he can warn the world.

    in Books

    Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest. 


    Author Michael Williamson joins me this week to talk about his book: Secret Betrayal and more.


    The desperate act of a young girl, on the cusp of womanhood, to lose herself in the mean streets and cabarets of 1930s Berlin, and years later, the disappearance of a key American general shortly before D-Day in 1944 are links in an ingenious plot to gain the secrets of the Allied invasion.


    Through a series of traumatic events Reichsletter Martin Bormann, the man more than any other that truly ran the German government toward the end of World War II, sets in motion a deadly gambit that ricochets across half the world and gains Bormann possession of the Normandy invasion plans. In the double dealing, back stabbing chaos that was the Nazi inner circle, this climactic information is the currency that will buy Bormann the one thing that he has desired above all others: the right to be the next Fuhrer.


    So unfolds the dynamic pages of Secret Betrayal. This novel is a testament to the redemptive power of love, the evolutionary power of kundalini yoga and the war within a war waged by Reichsletter Martin Bormann and Reichsfuhrer Heinrich Himmler for the mind of and influence over Adolf Hitler.

    Indie Books #87 (Dwayne Epstein)

    in Books

    Tune in and join me as I welcome this week's guest. 


    Author Dwayne Epstein joins me this week to talk about his book - Lee Marvin: Point Blank.


    The first full-length, authoritative, and detailed story of the iconic actor's life to go beyond the Hollywood scandal-sheet reporting of earlier books, this account offers an appreciation for the man and his acting career and the classic films he starred in, painting a portrait of an individual who took great risks in his acting and career. Although Lee Marvin is best known for his icy tough guy roles—such as his chilling titular villain in The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance or the paternal yet brutally realistic platoon leader in The Big Red One—very little is known of his personal life; his family background; his experiences in WWII; his relationship with his father, family, friends, wives; and his ongoing battles with alcoholism, rage, and depression, occasioned by his postwar PTSD. Now, after years of researching and compiling interviews with family members, friends, and colleagues; rare photographs; and illustrative material, Hollywood writer Dwayne Epstein provides a full understanding and appreciation of this acting titan’s place in the Hollywood pantheon in spite of his very real and human struggles.
