Sherlock Holmes: Gods of War!

godsofwar

An Atomic Moo Book Review of James Lovegrove’s New Mystery

James Lovegrove’s Gods of War is an exciting, and excellent, new addition to the recent series of Sherlock Holmes mysteries now published by Titan Book’s. In God’s of War, Lovegrove takes the reader back to 1913 (a year before World War One) where society is just getting use to motorized cars, and airplanes (aeroplanes), and world’s greatest detective is settling into retirement on the south shores of England. Well, almost. While being visiting by his friend, Dr. Watson, Sherlock Holmes come across the body of Young man (the son of a wealthy industrialist) who has fallen to his death. Here’s the synopsos:

1913. The clouds of war are gathering. The world’s great empires vie for supremacy. Europe is in turmoil, a powder keg awaiting a spark. A body is discovered on the shore below Beachy Head, just a mile from Sherlock Holmes’s retirement cottage. The local police are satisfied that it’s a suicide. The victim, a young man, recently suffered a disappointment in love, and Beachy Head is notorious as a place where the desperate and depressed leap to their deaths. Holmes, however, suspects murder. As he and Watson investigate, they uncover a conspiracy with shocking ramifications. There are some men, it seems, who not only actively welcome the idea of a world war but are seeking divine aid to make war a reality.

Of all the new Sherlock Holmes novels being released by Titan Books, this was the first one that read like an actual Mystery. I’m not saying that I didn’t enjoy the previous novels, (because I did) but they were too quick to put the great detective in front of huge steam powered monsters and mechanical impossibilities. In God’s of War, Lovegrove didn’t rely on retro-tech gadgets (Holmes booby trapped cottage I think gets a pass, because that just seems like something Holmes would have done) but instead crafted a fun world that presented it’s own challenges to Holmes and Watson. The pair are now older, and their world has moved on to include automobiles and airplanes. They’re winding down in a world that’s gearing up for destruction and that add a lot of charm to this adventure. Added to this is Lovegrove’s amazing writing style. He has an incredible descriptive talent paired with his ability to write excellent dialogue. Overall (and without spoiling too much) this was a fun, adventurous tale, and I hope to read more like this in the future.

Gods of War is now available in all major bookstores, or you can get your copy online at Titanbooks.com!

Spawn: Recall—Fan Film

Check out this nifty Spawn fan film, Spawn: The Recall, that we came across last night (can’t remember where though, and I’m too lazy to look it up). It’s by Micheal Paris and here’s a brief synopsis of the film:

SPAWN : THE RECALL is the story of a former witch and her son, who try to live a normal life away from the darkness.
While they’re shopping in a supermarket, the child suddenly disappears.
She starts looking for him, freaked out knowing evil forces are still lurking.
A security guard comes to her help but while they are checking on the surveillance cameras, something happens.
She can sense it, they are here…

Check it out below and let us know what you think!

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

dawnapesnovelization

An Atomic Moo Book Review of the Official Movie Novelization

I don’t know if this going to be a book review or a tirade on the current (shitty) state of the movie going experience. So, let me get the review out of the way first, before the rage takes over.

Written by Alex Irvine and published by Titan Books, the story begins ten years after the events in Rise of the Planet of the apes (I think they got the names backwards. Shouldn’t have been “Dawn of the…” for the first film and “Rise of the…” for the second film?), where a small nation of genetically altered apes, led by Caesar,Dawn-of-the-Planet-of-the-Apes-Wallpaper is prospering (thanks in part to a virus that has nearly wiped out the human race) in the forests of Northern California. However; there are some human survivors establishing a colony deep within the ruins of San Francisco, and when they try to reconnect the power, via a hydroelectric damn, they come face to face with their ape neighbors. Many of whom, like the scarred ape Koba, remember their time in the human labs and want revenge. kHowever; Caesar realizes that the humans are still armed and powerful. A war with them could destroy the apes and so he agrees to help a group of humans, led by a former architect Malcom, reconnect the power, but even that fragile peace between the two species is threatened by the vengeful schemes of Kobo.

This really is an excellent story, and (someday) I may get around to watching the film, but even without having seen all the grand special effect (and ape-raging danger) the story holds up by itself. The characters may lean a little bit towards typical (Hollywood) cliches, but not so much that ruins the overall tale. Caesar, and Malcom, represent the best of their new societies, while Kobo Dawn of the Planet of the Apes Filmmakes for the perfect villain. In Rise of the Planet of the Apes, he was subjected to all sorts of atrocities by the human scientists, and this drives him to want revenge on the small human settlement. Dawn (Just Dawn from this point on) also plays out the demise of humanity and the rise of ape society beautifully without spoiling, or rushing, towards the already well known conclusion. We know the apes will inherit the Earth, but Dawn is still full of surprises and humanities ultimate fate is not spoiled in the course of this story. Overall, an excellent read and, even though it’s been months since the movies release, I really hope this is Ape fans first experience with the story. Especially since going to movies is such a shit, awful, rotten experience these days.

Seriously, fuck you humanity. Fuck you for ruining something that should be really cool. Now, because of the grossly overpriced tickets and concessions, added with a great mix of smart phone addicted (loud), dip shits, I would much rather read a book then spend any time in a sticky, poorly managed, shit box of flashing CGI bullshit. How fucking hard is it to turn off a fucking phone for 90 minutes and shut the fuck up? Why is this so far beyond human ability? Turn the phone off, shut the fuck up, and leave your crying bastard at home with a sitter. Oh, and popcorn should never, ever, cost six bucks! ARRGGGHHHH!!! Wow. I kind of feel better now. It’s good to vent. Healthy I think.

Anyways, sorry about the rant, but the last movie I saw was Guardians of the Galaxy, and it sucked. Not the film (well…), but going to the movies sucked, because of stupid, rotten people. Maybe there should be an ape apocalypse just reset society, but then we’d just have to event killer robots to take down the apes… but then we would Martian help to take down our rebellious killer robots. Dammit, it’s all just screwed.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is available now in all major bookstores, or you can get a copy online at Titanbooks.com!

The Atomic Moocast #84!

Atomic-Moo-Moocast-Icon-600x600

Interview with Artist Dirk Richter!

Hello El Moochadores! We’re back with the Atomic Moocast episode #84! On this fine and quality edition (of podcasting gold) we’re talking with German pin-up artist, Dirk Richter! I think someone once told me, or maybe I heard it on tv… maybe it was Rush Limbaugh… 252889_1706192062470_1468104328_31356506_416893_n “If you can draw a good looking naked woman, you’ll never go hungry.” But I never really understood why someone would want to eat a bunch of their own sketches. Paper taste gross and why would you buy a bunch of paper, draw on it and then eat, when you could just as easy buy food? People are weird. Anyways, Dirk was a really cool to talk with and his work is amazing! Check out a few small samples below in the show notes along with links to his website and Facebook page.

So, it’s that time again folks! Time for easy, educational, free internet listening. All you have left to do now is secure a comfy corner of your habitat, claim a cool fizzy soda, and hit play on the best damn podcast your friends don’t know about!

Enjoy!

Rum Row

RR_Cover

New Comic from Andrew Maxwell

Good evening El Moochadores. Right now there is a Kickstarter for a great looking new comic, Rum Row. this high flying adventure is written by Andrew Maxwell and illustrated by Michele Bandini. The comic is a prohibition era tale that “mixes Jules Verne and The Untouchables.” So it’s chuck full of airplanes, airships, and dirigibles. Dirigibles! Here’s the story:

To avoid dry laws, rumrunners and patrons alike have taken to the sky. Hot air balloons and dirigibles now serve as speakeasies and black markets for alcohol. The press has coined these flying bars above New York “Rum Row”. Despite operating outside the law, Rum Row has become a worldwide tourist attraction.8f99f400b7a402cfcf720bb90ea46526_large Faced with growing concern over the lawlessness of its airspace, the city has created a special aerial vice squad to monitor and crack down on the sale of alcohol. One ship in particular has been a thorn in the city’s side since the beginning: The Duchess, New York’s premier flying speakeasy. In this story, we’ll follow the NYPD’s attempt to take down the Duchess once and for all, through the eyes of one of its passengers, Jack Tinson. All the while, Jack’s own allegiances and motivations remain in question…

So far their kickstarter has met its goal (way to go!), but they have a bunch of great rewards for everyone who can still contribute. Rewards include posters, comics, t-shirts, and more. Check out the the Kickstarter for more information. I’ve posted a few sample images below along with the kickstarter video.

Enjoy!

Awesome Marvel Heroines Fan Art

Spider-Woman Art Gutierrez

Check out these awesome looking Marvel Heroines Fan art by deviantArtist ArTGutierrez (Art Gutierrez). Damn, this guy has got some talent. I’m not sure if these were commissioned pieces or if this is just strait-up—for the love of it—fan art. I’m guessing the latter. I’m thinking that Spider-Woman (above) is my favorite here, but then again I’ve always had a thing for Psylocke… I dunno. It would be nice to pick up a print of these, but hell, even if he was selling them, I’m too broke to get one. Just got paid on Friday and most of my check went to credit card companies and student loans… bastards… Sorry, I’m getting off track… I’ll post a few of the illustrations below, but check out the rest of them here. Later!
