The Art and Making of Penny Dreadful!

An Atomic Moo Book Review of the New Offical Companion Book to the Showtime Series

Fans of the Showtime hit original series, Penny Dreadful now have a comprehensive new volume to sate all their Victorian era monster needs. Published by Titan Books (2015),InsideArt the Art and Making of Penny Dreadful is a beautifully assembled collection of season one’s characters, production notes, behind the scenes photos, and history. Yeah, there’s quiet a lot of actual history used by the series, and expertly explained in this volume. The new companion is written by Sharon Gosling and focuses on show creator John Logan’s vision, and execution, of the series. What I really enjoyed about this companion is that it isn’t just a big picture book. Though there are tons of pictures; The companion provides excellent details on the shows production methods and the hurdles they had to jump to get the first season produced. Also, I have to give a lot of credit to the books designer. The page lay outs, and cover work, of this volume are very well done in a style that matches the look and feel of the show.

I’ve posted the official synopsis below, along with a few scans of some of the inside pages. these are kind of low quality scans from home computer, but they should at least give potential readers an idea of what’s inside. Still, probably better to go to a bookstore and see the real deal.

the Art and Making of Penny Dreadful is available now in all major bookstores, or you can get your copy online at titanbooks.com

Penny Dreadful Season 2 starts tomorrow! Click the link for more show information

Some of horror literature’s most iconic characters, including Dr. Frankenstein, Dorian Gray, and figures from Dracula are lurking in the darkest corners of Victorian London. Penny Dreadful is a psychological thriller that weaves together these classic horror origin stories into a new adult drama. The Art and Making of Penny Dreadful goes behind the scenes to unearth its secrets and dissect every aspect of the show’s production, with exclusive interview material with the creator, cast, and crew, and previously unseen images.

BaneCat Episode 3!

BaneCat

Via BloodBlitz on the youtube: Checkout episode 3 of the best Bat parody to date! BaneCat!!! Though, I’m a little critical of the Batdog. I don’t see Batman as a beagle. Snoopy was a beagle. Batman is probably more of a German shepherd… or some sort of lab. yeah.

Enjoy!

Poison: A Wicked Snow White Tale

An Atomic Moo Book Review of Sarah Pinborough’s Dark Fairy Tale

Sarah Pinborough’s dark fairy tale, Poison, is one of those books who’s reading experience I really don’t want to spoil for anyone, but I also know that somehow I’m probably going to spoil it all the same. So, for what it’s worth… Spoiler Alert!

Published by Titan Books (2013), Poison is a darker (adult) spin on the classic Snow White fairy tale, also made popular by the 1937 Disney film. However; Pinborough doesn’t rely on the classic cartoon for her story. Instead she diverges from the popular versions of the tale (retaining an evil queen, helpful dwarves, and even a handsome prince) to make a fresh (if not amazingly creepy) version of the Snow White story that is vastly more interesting than anything put out by the Walt Disney Co.

Sylvia

Sylvia

A home-made stop motion animated film

Oi El Moochadores; Currently on Kickstarter there is a cool new stop motion animation project by animator (and former Atomic Moocast guest), Meirav Haber.Sylvia1 The animation, Sylvia will be about an “imaginative little girl who creates a world inside her bedroom with a few deformed but lovable creatures.” That’s a brave little girl. I mean, when I was a little boy none of my imaginary friends had any major deformities. Violent urges, sure… Anyways, check out the promotional video below where Meirav herself will explain the animation, and her goals for the project. As of this post the project has 46 days to go, but don’t delay helping. The sooner Meirav get’s the support, the sooner she can begin work. Also, click the link above to check out the rewards being offered for supporters of this project.

Sylvia is a story about an imaginative little girl who creates a world inside her bedroom with a few deformed but lovable creatures that help her cope with her parents’ disregard. My hope is that “Sylvia” will speak to the value of imagination as a resource for resiliency.
