TV Review: Dimension 404 1.1 “Matchmaker”
Maximus Prime   |  

Hulu's Dimension 404

Dimension 404
Episode 1.1 “Matchmaker”
Directed by Stephen Cedars and Benji Kleiman
Written by Will Campos and Dez Dolly
Starring Robert Buckley, Lea Michele, Joel McHale, Matt L. Jones, Karissa Staples, Mark Hamill
Hulu
Air Date: Tuesday, April 4, 2017

Warning: Minor spoilers for Dimension 404 below:

Imagine if Doctor Who and The Twilight Zone had a baby; the result would be Rocket Jump’s new Hulu series, Dimension 404. Each installment of the six episode anthology show is inspired by the internet’s all too familiar “404” error code, and focuses on the deeper, darker, and stranger depths of the World Wide Web — and did I mention that Mark Hamill is the narrator?

But is the show itself a success, or does it deserve its own “error” mark? Find out below in this review of episode one, “Matchmaker.”

Kickstarter Spotlight: ‘This Off Beat Town’ Issues 2-4 By Jake Smith
Maximus Prime   |  

This Off Beat Town Issue 2 Jake Smith Cover

I love a good indie comic book series; especially one with an exhilarating story, witty dialogue, amazing action sequences, stellar illustrations, an ex-mercenary monkey, and giant, killer robots. Yeah, Jake Smith‘s This Off Beat Town is my kind of book.

After a successful Kickstarter campaign for the first issue, Jake is back with the quirky, “off beat” characters that make the city of Nero so entertaining. With a goal of $10,000 for issues two through four, Jake’s new campaign has already raised almost 90 percent with 15 days to go, and has some awesome rewards as well!

I was able to speak with Jake about his project and am happy to share the interview with all of you here at Geeks of Doom. Check it out below along with his Kickstarter campaign video!

Dead Jack and The Pandemonium Device Kickstarter Cover

Dead Jack and The Pandemonium Device
Dead Jack Book 1
Paperback | Kindle
By James Aquilone
Homunculus House
Release date: November 19, 2016

What’s better than a zombie novel? How about a zombie novel about an undead, foul-mouthed, junkie private eye, his homunculus sidekick, Oswald, and their outlandish adventures through the otherworldly Pandemonium? I’d say that’d do it! I first discovered the Dead Jack and the Pandemonium Device Kickstarter via John Denardo, the former head of SF Signal — and I’m glad I did. Written by James Aquilone, this is not your typical supernatural romp.

On Saturday, October 8, at New York Comic-Con, famed director and writer Guillermo del Toro presented the first episode of his Netflix/DreamWorks Animation/Cha Cha Cha Films original animated series, Trollhunters, along with co-executive producers Rodrigo Blaas and Marc Guggenheim, as well as voice actors Kelsey Grammer, Ron Perlman, Steven Yeun, and Charlie Saxton.

The series centers around Jim Lake Jr. (voiced by the late Anton Yelchin), a kind and protective teenager who, while on his way to school with his best friend Toby, discovers an amulet — calling out his name — meant for the protector of both the troll realm and human realm. What Jim doesn’t realize at the time is that he’s about to be thrust into a dangerous, centuries-long conflict between good and bad trolls, as he’s been chosen to become the one force who can defend both trolls and humanity: the Trollhunter.
