GoD List Banner

Each and every week “King Cobra?” Henchman21 and “Diamond Dallas” MK2FAC3 read a lot of comics. Seriously you guys, a lot of comics. Maybe too many comics. I mean, it is possible… theoretically. They look forward to some more than others, I mean, who doesn’t? So, let’s take a look into the depths of their pull lists, grab some comics, and we’ll let YOU know what the top books to look forward to are for the week of September 28, 2011. Single issues and trades, they’re all here.

There’s a lot of good stuff coming out this week like Ultimate Spider-Man #2, but neither of us picked that because it’s four dollars for 20 pages, and that’s ridiculous. We did, however, pick everything from All-Star Western to Rachel Rising, so if you’d like to see why we picked those and what else we picked, the you should continue to read this story. And that’s not a bad thing, it’s a good thing. BANG!

1870 Photograph On eBay Proves Nicolas Cage Is Immortal

Nicolas Cage

A photograph was recently discovered being sold on eBay. The photo is of a Tennessee man, and it dates back to around the 1860s or 1870s. But the thing about this particular man, is that he looks an awful lot like a one Mr. Nicolas Cage.

So much so that the seller is even using this in his description, claiming the Cage must be some sort of vampire. Now, some have taken the seller to be completely serious in his statements (especially with a Buy It Now price of $1,000,000 set), but as you can see in the Q&A section at the bottom of the page, he’s actually a pretty funny dude and, even though it sounds like a legit 19th century photograph, is likely just having some fun with it (unless, of course, someone actually pays up that kinda coin, in which case he would be a genius).

You can see the image below and read the seller’s description by heading on below now.

Must See: Real Vampire Hunting Kit From The Late 1800s

On October the 12th in the year 1890—seven years before Bram Stoker’s classic, Dracula, arrived (the “vampire” itself has existed in folklore for centuries)—a man named Andrew A. Kauffman wrote a letter to a Mrs. Eberhardt, informing her that he had slain the vampire that had killed the woman’s daughter. The letter reads “I have dispatched the vampir that took your sweet daughters life. Included in this case are the tools used in the final act along with proof of its death. Mildredas life was too innocent to be taken by such a monster; she was dearly loved by me as we were newly betrothed. May she now rest in peace.”

Though it’s obvious now that this man killed some kind of animal—most likely a dog or some kind of wolf—this proof of how different times once were is amazing to see. You can check out the pictures of the vampire killing kit, the letter, and even a photograph of dear Mildred below.

According to reports, mega-star Will Smith has latched on to a new project called The Legend of Cain. Smith is planning to not only produce the movie through his own Overbrook Entertainment, but also star in the title role of Cain. The star’s wife Jada Pinkett Smith, James Lassiter, and Ken Stovitz will also produce.

The movie is said to be a re-telling of the biblical tale of the brothers Cain and Abel. In most versions of the story, the brothers are the sons of Adam and Eve; Cain is a farmer and Abel a shepherd with both making offerings to God based on their trades. When God accepts Abel’s sacrificial animal offerings but rejects Cain’s offerings of produce, the latter becomes enraged and kills his brother in cold blood bringing the deadly sin into the world.

‘The Twilight Saga’ Star Robert Pattinson Is Related To Dracula … Seriously

What if I told you that the world’s hands-down most sparkly vampire, Robert Pattinson, who plays Edward Cullen in The Twilight Saga, was actually related to the real Dracula, Vlad the Impaler?

Well, that’s precisely what genealogy experts from Ancestry.com discovered in a recent test of the actor’s family tree. You see, Pattinson is actually related to the British royal family, and is in fact distant cousins to Prince William and Prince Harry. This now connects Transylvania’s Vlad the Impaler (real name Vlad Tepes), as a distant uncle to all of them.

Snoop Dogg Really Likes HBO’s ‘True Blood’

Iconic rapper Snoop Dogg really likes vampire drama True Blood, or at the very least, one of the show’s main characters Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin).

Evidence of Snoop’s True Blood-fanboyism can overwhelmingly be found in the music video “Oh Sookie” he produced and subsequently uploaded to YouTube to promote the show for HBO.

It is everything you’d think it would be, and probably even a little bit more.

Check out the video embedded below and then share your Vampire-Hip-Hop puns in the comment section please.

The video begins with Snoop pulling up to Merlotte’s in a tricked-out Cadillac with a personalized California license plate that reads “TRU PIMP.” He comes bearing gifts like “Tru Nutz” and proceeds to rap amongst a montage of True Blood clips and shots of Sookie look-a-like dancers.

Far away from Forks, Washington in the quaint little Bayou town of Bon Temps, Louisiana is where vampire fiction for a mature audience takes place — True Blood produced by Alan Ball (American Beauty, Six Feet Under) , which will make its season 3 premiere tonight.

Season two ended with the gang defeating the god-like Maynard beast — otherwise known as Maryann — who was thwarted by shape-shifter Sam Merlotte (Sam Trammell) during her ultimate bestial sacrifice.

This season begins with Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin) turning to Eric for help in finding her 173-year-old boyfriend Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer) who vanished after proposing to her.

True Blood Season 3, Episode 1 “Bad Blood” airs June 13 at 9 pm EST (8 pm CST) on HBO. Check out the official trailer below and remember to set those TiVo boxes or DVRs.

‘Avatar’ Star Sam Worthington To Play Dracula In Origins Movie ‘Year Zero’

Dracula

Back in December, we found out that The Twilight Saga studio Summit Entertainment was developing another vampire movie about the original Dracula, Vlad the Impaler (Read: ‘Twilight’ Vamps Just Don’t Cut It; Summit Developing Dracula Movie). That movie is called Vlad, and it’s being produced based on a script by Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam, but we soon discovered that it wouldn’t have any type of vampire in it at all (Read: Check That: Summit Stays Faithful To ‘Twilight;’ Won’t Use Vampires In ‘Vlad’). Though the movie still seems like it could be really good, this was also sad news because a period film about the first vampire sounded pretty awesome.

Worry not, fans of the nocturnal feeders — with their resurrection of the old 1940s monster movies set to materialize with The Wolfman, Universal Pictures isn’t stopping there. Latino Review first got the scoop that the studio has to decided to go ahead and make that Dracula period movie WITH vampires called Dracula: Year Zero, and it looks like Avatar and Terminator Salvation star Sam Worthington will play the main man with a thirst for blood.

Just in time for Halloween comes the Vampire-inspired Fleshlight — a variant version of the original strange-as-hell sex toy “the Fleshlight” — called the Succu Dry.

If you are unfamiliar with this device, it essentially looks like a flashlight that you insert your…and then the glitter comes…well you get the point.

The folks at Gizmodo discovered this little gem and offer a few more pictures on their site.
