Binge on Dark Shadows this Weekend and Win Free Stuff

0

I just discovered via The Collinsport Historical Society that Decades TV Network is airing a Dark Shadows Binge this weekend! I’m happy about this perhaps becoming a Halloween tradition! To say that the show had an impact on me personally, and in my writing and art, is an understatement. The Binge is a nice way for new fans to get a crash course on the show and for us old ones to enjoy the nostalgia, whether we were running home from school to watch during it’s original airing, getting acquainted in the 90’s on the SciFi channel (“wasn’t it that weird vampire show?”), or in my case, getting the DVDs mailed to me from Netflix because someone said my Dad resembled Willie Loomis.

I’ve included a couple of pieces of Dark Shadows fan art in my Halloween Giveaway package, in addition to two signed paperback books from The Sick Rose Vampires! Enter the giveaway HERE by Halloween! I will randomly select a winner on November 1st.

Your inner child just pooped the pants.

First of all, the DARK SHADOWS series binge is already in full swing on the new Decades TV Network.  For the past
few months the station has been featuring back to back episodes of popular old TV shows.  They have selected a handful of episodes of the gothic soap opera Dark Shadows for us to binge on until Saturday May 16th at 2pm.  The binge started last night at 6pm starting with episode 210, where Barnabas the vampire first came on the scene.  I’m not sure what episode that will get us to come Saturday, but I once read that a man completed the entire series of 1,200+ episodes in two weeks! (Of course, minus commercials.)  The next series Decades will be marathon-ing is The Twilight Zone! (Goodie!) 🙂

I finally finished up my series of Magnum PI chibis. I may make some tweaks to the final layout of the gang, my ultimate goal being to get the design on a T shirt.

lord-humongous-colorIn addition to the Dark Shadows marathon, two more exciting things are happening this weekend!  Mad Max: Fury Road premieres and the Motor City Comic Con is happening Friday-Sunday in Novi, Michigan!  Although I was unable to attend Comic Con this year as part of their Artist Alley, I do plan on being in attendance for the first time as an attendee.  These are the same folks who hosted the X-trava Con Comic Book & Toy shows where I have done book signings on two occasions.  Looking forward to also seeing the new Mad Max movie, given it seems to lean heavily on The Road Warrior (my favorite of the franchise) and features girl-crush Charlize Theron. Mayhaps there will be more Mad Max fan art in my future?

And while we’re at it, might I add that the new season of The Bachelorette premiers on Monday? I mean how often does one have an opportunity to share a mashup meme based on Mad Max and the last crazy epic season of The Bachelor?

As far as The Sick Rose Vampires goes…the writing for Book II is selected and a couple of the illustrations are done, but beyond that we are definitely running behind schedule.  Stay tuned for updates.  In the meantime, don’t forget to pick up Blood & Alcohol *currently TWO BUCKS OFF on Amazon* for an introduction to the main characters before we get into some vigilante justice! 😉
