16 Mind-Blowing Facts About Edgar Allan Poe

17 March 2015 6:43 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

One of the most versatile and brilliant writers in history, Edgar Allan Poe was an American author who helped to influence scores of other literary greats.

Active during the 1840s and 1850s, Poe dabbled in mystery and detective writing, he helped to continue the emergence of the science-fiction genre of literature, and was part of the American Romantic Movement – even becoming the first well-known Us-born author to attempt to earn a living through his literary works alone.

Best known for his poems “The Raven”, “The Bells” and “Eldorado”, Poe also wrote several short stories, including “The Murders in the Rue Morgue”, “The Gold-Bug” and “The Black Cat”.

Interestingly though, Poe also tried his hand at other forms of literature – writing one play (“Politian”) and one completed novel (“The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket”) during his lifetime.

But aside from his brilliant works, Poe’s life itself also makes for fascinating reading. »

Comic Book Review – Howard the Duck #1

17 March 2015 4:53 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Luke Owen reviews Howard the Duck #1…

Howard the Duck is back! Join him as he takes on the weird cases that only a talking duck can crack as the Marvel Universe’s resident private investigator! Let Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quinones guide you through his new world as he takes on the Black Cat and mysterious forces from outer space! Waugh!

Howard the Duck. He’s a character always on the outskirts of popularity within the Marvel Universe. Best known for the under-appreciated big screen flop from George Lucas and a recent fleeting appearance in James Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy, Howard the Duck isn’t particularly known for his comic book tales. He’s never had a Spider-Man No More or a Days of Future Past, but he’s always been around. Can this new series from Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quinones help him rise to prominence »
