I asked to review this comic with no knowledge whatsoever of the publisher, the creator, or the content. It sounded up my alley, as far as titles go anyway. Well, Arcane Secrets #1 is pretty much what I was expecting. I say pretty much because I wasn’t, in any way, aware that it was geared for adolescents. That said, I review a lot of stuff for children so I’m not put off at all. As a matter of fact, I found myself more interested. So read on and I’ll tell you more about this amazing book.

Originally released by Dibbuks, a publishing company in Spain, this mini-series of three issues has all the earmarks of being fun for the whole family. I did a bit of research and found that it was given a spotlight in the June 2013 Previews. If you’re unaware of how important this is then please note that most comic stores do their ordering or at least compile their lists based on what’s offered in their monthly Previews. Getting a call out in this magazine is sure to raise awareness and sales for that particular issue. So, this is a pretty big deal to an independent company like Amigo Comics, the distributor of this series here in the United States.

Kickstarter Spotlight: Zombie Head Ice Cream Cups and Beer Mugs
  |  @   |  

A very cool Kickstarter project has been brought to my attention – it’s for Zombie Head Ice Cream Cups and Beer Mugs!

Now, when you help to fund a Kickstarter project, you not only help to bring a creative person’s vision to life, but there’s also usually some very sweet benefits for pledgers and at various levels. For this project – and the title of it should be enough to grab you – there’s some awesome prizes!!! For the smallest donation, there’s t-shirts, postcards, artwork files, stickers, magnets; for a bit more, you get the zombie ice cream cups and/or beer mugs, which I totally want! For super-duper donors with some big bucks, you can get personally designed zombie cups, prints, or even a Ghost Tour!!!

Seriously, head over to the Kickstarter page and choose one of the prize levels. Believe me, once you see these zombie cups, the hardest part won’t be parting ways with your money, it will be choosing which design you want! Oh – and if zombies aren’t your thing, there’s also brains of Cthulhu cups!!!

But hurry! The project ends on Sunday, April 28, 2013 at 4:13pm EDT.
