Blu-rays/Dvds




Orphan Black: Season 2 

Description:

VideoTapeWorm.com says: If you’ll pardon our French, this series is the best mind, uh, “jerk” on TV. The amazing Tatiana Maslany (”Parks and Recreation”) plays a streetwise punk — along with a half-dozen or more other characters, often in the same scene! — in this thick stew of genetic manipulation, clones, secret government nastiness, crazy techno-religious cults, cops, soccer moms, brainless husbands, sexuality in all its glorious forms, drugs, murder, corporate slavery, and mysterious killer step-moms from the BBC. And at the center of it all is her adorable little daughter, a girl who can’t possibly exist. You’ll want to go ahead and get Season 1 while you’re at it. Addictive.

Comics 


Zombies Have Issues

Description:

As we know from Greg Stones’s first breakout hit book, zombies hate stuff. It’s less understood that the undead also struggle with the stuff of everyday life usually navigated by the breathing. Zombies have issues with yoga, bad hair days, chopsticks, the morning commute, touch-screen technology, and more. They kind of enjoy skunks, gardening, and acupuncture, but they have major issues with banana peels, Renaissance fairs, bear traps, and bunnies. In the face of such adversity, all zombies really want is a cure. With humor, wit, and braaaains, Greg Stones’s colorful painted panels offer a sympathetically funny, new perspective into the trials and tribulations of the undead in a world made for the living.

PICTURES THAT TICK VOLUME 2 


Description:

McKean uses mixed media to take readers on a journey unlike any other: “The Coast Road” follows a desperate wife trying to find her missing husband, whose ghostly image appears in unexpected ways. “Black Holes,” written by an anonymous journalist, concerns the politically sensitive true story of Chinese villagers induced by the government to sell their blood, only to be infected with AIDS through poor medical practice. A myriad of personal tales fill the pages of McKean’s latest achievement.
