Every day here at Doom HQ we receive tons of tips from our readers about really cool stuff from the world of geek, as well as promotional materials for new films, comic books, collectibles, and much more. While we do our best to bring you as much of it as possible, we don’t always have enough geek manpower available to cover it all on a daily basis. But we hate the idea of all of this really cool stuff wasting away in our inbox. How could we NOT cover it? Hence why we’ve resurrected our long-defunct column Bits Of Doom, now rebranded and revamped as Doom Digest, a collection of easily digestible bits of news, videos, photos, and other goodies.
Today: The making of HBO’s Veep, a mash-up of the The Haunted Mansion and Ghostbusters, a new video for Prometheus, pre-order the Thor Mjolnir Prop Replica, and Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire gets a graphic novel adaptation/retelling called Claudia’s Story, plus Bits Of Doom.

Prometheus – Quiet Eye
I’m proud to say that even though it seems like there’s nothing left to learn about Ridley Scott’s Prometheus, I have managed stay away from all trailers, featurettes, and viral material for the movie. But pretty much every day, something shows up about the movie in my inbox. Most recently, it’s this video called “Quiet Eye” – watch it here below.
