If the world is truly coming to an end, then screw it; why not stop, have a few pints, and get inebriated? Makes sense to us! That being said, we have a new still from the upcoming film from Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg, The World's End. Check out the goods right here, and look for the flick in theatres on August 23rd.
The World's End is directed by Wright and stars Pegg along with long time buddy Nick Frost, Rosamund Pike, Martin Freeman, Paddy Considine, and Eddie Marsan.
20 years after attempting an epic pub crawl, five childhood friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries.
Word of a new project coming our way from Clive Barker is always cause for celebration, and today we have a look at his Next Testament, set for release in May by Boom! Studios.
From the Press Release:
This May BOOM! Studios is honored to be the home of the first original comic series created and written by Clive Barker himself - CLIVE BARKER'S NEXT TESTAMENT. With interior art by Haemi Jang (HELLRAISER: THE ROAD BELOW) and covers by illustrator Goni Montes, the twelve-issue comic event is a bold new exploration of religious themes as only Barker can deliver.
Julian Demond, captain of industry, has left behind everything to begin a walkabout -- he believes he’s on a mission from God. While in the wasteland, he comes across a figure unlike any other, who calls himself Wick...and claims to be God. Their journey will span the globe, as neither man merely wants to make a mark on the world, but a scar. Created by Clive Barker as an original comic book concept and co-written by Barker with HELLRAISER writing partner Mark Miller, CLIVE BARKER'S NEXT TESTAMENT marks the first time the master of horror has created and written an original comic book series.
“Next Testament is a project that is near and dear to our hearts. It's a story that has been years in the making, and we're thrilled that it's found a home with Boom! Studios," commented Miller. "We promise you something the likes of which you've never seen. Prepare yourselves for a horrific fantasy of Biblical proportions.”
CLIVE BARKER'S NEXT TESTAMENT #1 will arrive in stores on May 29th with a cover by illustrator Goni Montes and carry a retail price of $3.99 under Diamond order code MAR130920. The premiere issue will also feature a retailer incentive cover by Ben Oliver (BATWING) and an ultra-rare incentive cover painted and signed by Clive Barker himself!

The Amityville Horror by Austin-based artist NE
Here's what NE had to say about the print: "When I was asked to do a poster for Amityville Horror, I was somewhat hesitant. I know the obvious and even traditional way of depicting these movies has always been to predominately show the house as a living thing with glowing windows for eyes glaring back at the audience in a not-so-subtle way. I chose to approach the Dutch Colonial house in a more ambiguous way to show what had brought the Lutz family to live there in the first place. I wanted to show that the perceived promise of the American dream outweighed the ominous presence of the structure. To show this, I chose to depict that house as beautiful, an ideal, yet possessing and off-kilter quality. The font for the title reinforced this strange nature by recalling the European posters of the 60′s and the 70′s. Finally, the choice to make it literally a house on a hill was deliberate. After all, that is the view of it from the boat house."
