Click the above title to

She loves us..she really loves us!  JK Rowling has bestowed upon the bloodthirsty and ravenous hordes of Potter fans a fun short story that places Harry, Ron and Hermoine as adults on her site Pottermore.  Go check it out.

Her people say this means nothing, but I'm still hopeful.  I hope this is her testing waters and experimenting....Harry Potter changed things.  It got kids to read, it got adults to made our minds dance in a way that we desperately need in life, so I will choose to remain hopeful.

Disney's Frozen: a Sister More Like Me Book Review

Disney's Frozen: a Sister More Like Me Book Review

About the Book: Explore a wintery world of magic in Walt Disney Animation Studio's latest film, "Frozen." This jacketed picture book features an original story about Anna and Elsa, the film's two sisters, as well as illustrations by one of the artists who worked on the film.

Our Take: There are few Disney movies that become cult favorites right away, it usually takes some time to settle in.  Frozen is not one of those films.  Frozen has achieved a huge cult following almost immediately upon its release!  This cool hardcover book features quirkly artwork from Disney Animation artist Brittney Lee, which is both stunning and playful.  The dust jacket on this one has some great glittery flocked ice/snow design on the back and beautiful artwork on the front.  The story inside delves into the Frozen storyline and pulls out the relationship between the two sisters.  Rather than being a retelling of the film, this book highlights whether the sisters being different is a strength or weakness and has a strong focus on their loving bond.  This is a fantastic book and is without a doubt a must have!

Doc McStuffins Doctor Bag Book Review

Doc McStuffins Doctor Bag Book Review

About the Book: Doc's Doctor Bag is Chock-Full of Doc McStuffins Fun!  The Doc is in and she's ready to make her diagnosis...with your help, of course! Each page of this interactive book features a toy that needs a checkup plus several punch-out doctor's tools. It's up to you and Doc to decide which tool is the right one to make your diagnosis. Tons of pretend fun can be found in the pages of this delightful, interactive book!

Our Take: Doc McStuffins is a wildly popular Disney Junior kids cartoon.  My four year old goes crazy for it!  This cool board book is shaped like Doc's doctor bag and each page features items that your little one can pop out and use along with doc, such as a clipboard and pencil, stethoscope, thermometer and more!  These items are also made from the stiff board material, so they don't bend or break easily and they all pop right back into place, so that they don't get lost.  This book is charming and fun and will please any little fan of the Doc!

Comic-Inspired Action Title Confirms New North American Release Date

Team NINJA and Dark Horse Comics today launched the three-part YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z digital comic series, providing insight into the backstory in three revealing vignettes. Yaiba takes a break from slaughtering zombies in the debut issue to tell the tale of how his often bloody sword became to be known as “Heartless” as he recounts the story to Miss Monday. Initially released digitally with an all-new full color print comic to be available with the game, as it launches on its newly confirmed North American release date of March 18, 2014, the series is brought to life by Writers Tim Seeley and Josh Emmons, Artist Rafael Ortiz, Colorist Carlos Badilla with special cover art by James Harren. The comic will be available for free download at the Dark Horse Digital Store,, as well as through the Dark Horse Comics app (available through iTunes & Google Play). The comic can be found at:

In YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z, players will battle fierce zombies as Yaiba, a cyborg ninja who will do anything to get revenge and stay alive. Cleaved in two, he is brought back to life with cyber-technology. Brandishing his ninja sword and the mecha weapons in his cyber arm, he slaughters zombies with brutal, over-the-top abandon. Step into a stylized living comic book where stunning graphics depict a world gone mad. Hordes of undead can only be stopped by Yaiba’s willingness to use any means necessary to get the job done. Will he kill by turning his cyber arm into a razor chainsaw for slicing up undead—or just rip off an opponent’s arms to use as zombie nunchucks? Both possibilities fill Yaiba’s heart with twisted laughter in this collaboration between famed developers Team NINJA and comcept’s Keiji Inafune. 

YAIBA: NINJA GAIDEN Z will be available for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Steam® (PC) March 18, 2014. This title has been rated M (Mature) by the ESRB.

IDW Publishes Horror Anthology In The Dark

A Collection Of All-New, Original Terror Tales From The Darkest And Most Brilliant Minds In Comics

San Diego, CA (January 9, 2013) – The terror tome that has all the horror hounds frothing, In The Dark, is poised to make its debut this April! Featuring top writers and artists from the comic-book industry, In The Dark contains over 20 all-new, original horror stories that you’ll want to read with the lights on.

In The Dark launched as a Kickstarter project put together by Anathema scribe Rachel Deering last year, and successfully doubled the intended target goal for the project. Assembled and edited by Deering, In The Dark dives into a myriad of sinister horror stories from writers including Justin Jordan, Cullen Bunn, Steve Niles, Duane Swierczynski, Tom Taylor, Tim Seeley, Brian Keene, F. Paul Wilson, Ed Brisson, Marguerite Bennett, Valerie D’Orazio, Paul Tobin, James Tynion IV, and many more. Nate Powell, Tradd Moore, Damien Worm, Tyler Jenkins, Drew Moss, and Andy Belanger are just a few of distinguished artists that will give each tale a unique and distinct style.

“This book is the 8-year-old Rachel's dream come true. I wanted to make something that, had I found it on the shelves as a kid, would have been my favorite book of all time,” says Rachel Deering, In the Dark editor and project manager. “I wanted to give this generation a chance to feel that macabre magic that held me spellbound when I picked up my first horror anthology comic, and I can only hope it serves the scare the crap outta readers, young and old, for years to come.”

Along with the terrifying original stories, this over 250-page hardcover will feature an introduction by New York Times Bestselling author Scott Snyder and an in-depth look at the history of horror comics by comic book historian Mike Howlett.

“Rachel has assembled an amazing team for In the Dark,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief. “I know well how difficult it can be to put together an anthology at all, let alone one with solid creative teams from front to back, and that is exactly what Rachel has done here. The book’s successful Kickstarter campaign speaks to peoples’ interest in this project, and I’m excited that IDW can help bring the book to an even wider audience.”

In The Dark is the latest anthology IDW is pleased to publish under its banner, joining Womanthology and the prose anthologies V-Wars and Zombies Vs. Robots: This Means War!
