In the hobby gaming industry, it caused something of a ruckus, a promising Kickstarter project for a board game was canceled after long delays, despite being successfully funded. "The Doom That Came To Atlantic City" has become a cautionary tale for board games on Kickstarter and those who want to enter the industry.



Robert Kirkman is kind of a big deal. When you create and executive produce AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” a cable show that pulls in 12.4 million viewers – and you’ve helped transform zombies from low-budget genre fare into commercially viable monsters – well, let’s just say Hollywood picks up the phone when you call.

Arthur Darvill Broadchurch (2)

Arthur Darvill has died, traveled through time, fallen in love, found god and got caught up in a small-town murder mystery in the past year alone. And he had to work on his lousy Irish accent.



It’s Geek Week on YouTube, which made it the perfect opportunity for acclaimed comics writer Grant Morrison to launch his first-ever animated webseries, “18 Days.” The webseries, which is a Graphic India production, retells the “Mahabharata,” and new episodes will be coming out weekly. MTV Geek spoke with Morrison to learn more about his endeavour, what he thinks of webseries in the comics world, and why the “Mahabharata” spoke to him.



With less than a week left, Four Horsemen Studios' Kickstarter has been a massive success! The Raven, from their Gothitropolis line, is an incredible figure and fans showed their support by fully-funding the base action figure in less than 24 hours! Since then, tons of stretch goals have come and went with multiple variants for the figure, wings, flight stands, battle packs, and other extras added to the initial production. As the campaign sees its end in a few days, we had a chance to talk with the Four Horsemen about the Kickstarter, and what the Raven's success holds for the future.



Yesterday, we brought you the news that DC Comics would be publishing tie-ins to the "Zero Year" origin story in "Batman" in 11 of its books come October. Over the next couple days, we'll be bringing you some interviews with the creators of two of those titles to see what they're going to be adding to the "Zero Year" story. Up today is "Green Arrow" writer Jeff Lemire, who will bring a young, fresh-off-the-island Ollie Queen to Gotham to take on Killer Moth in "Green Arrow" 25.



Many of us were saddened by the passing of the great James Gandolfini back in June, but he left with us a handful of recent films that explored his range as an actor. One of those was the curious, violent, and curiously violent "Violet & Daisy" from writer-director Geoffrey Fletcher.

The film stars Saoirse Ronan ("Hanna," "The Lovely Bones") and Alexis Bledel ("Sin City," "Gilmore Girls") as a pair of assassins charged with taking out the enigmatic Michael (Gandolfini), a target who seems all too willing to take a bullet to the head.

I spoke with Fletcher prior to Gandolfini's death about the continued appeal of hitgirls on film as well as working with the great actor in one of his final roles.

Ready for more "Zero Year"?

DC Comics is. In November, 11 of the publisher's titles--some you would expect, some you wouldn't--will turn the clock back to tie in with the best-selling origin story writer Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo are telling in "Batman."

"Trillium" is a comic book about a lot of things. It's about a scientist and a soldier. It's about the future and the past. Life and death. The earth and the stars. Civilization and nature.

There's just a whole lot to unpack, and writer/artist Jeff Lemire only has eight issues to pull it off. In advance of the first issue, a two-sided flipbook which includes spotlight stories about both a far-future scientist and a World War I soldier, and which hits comic shops this Wednesday, Lemire took a few minutes to talk with MTV Geek about what he hopes to accomplish.



In recent weeks, MTV Geek sat down with the writers of TNT's alien invasion drama "Falling Skies" in series of spoiler-heavy interviews about the developments in season three. Who lived, who died, and what strange new factions would develop in the third season as the 2nd Mass escalated their conflict with the alien invaders.

The battle with the Eshpeni takes yet another turn as the 2nd Mass mounts its final assault against the invaders' tower. But when the Volm forces arrive, will it make things better for the humanr resistance--or worse?

We talked about the season three finale with "Falling Skies" executive producer Remi Aubuchon, who told us about death, hints of life in France, and how everyone dies in the writers' room.

In the glut of zombie films we've experienced since their resurgence, they've been pitted against slackers, vampires, cops, crooks, but never, not once, cockneys. Enter writer/director Matthias Hoene who, along with co-writer James Moran, is one of the minds behind the horror-action-comedy "Cockneys vs. Zombies."

Moran spoke with explained cockney slang to us as well as bringing legendary British tough guy Alan Ford ("Snatch," "The Long, Good Friday") into a zombie nightmare.

The cast of "Mortal Kombat: Legacy" stopped by San Diego Comic-Con to spread the word about season 2 of their popular webseires. "Mortal Kombat: Legacy" is on the forefront of the digital wave of TV as it's one of the most watched series on YouTube. Season 2 will up the ante when it comes to story development, fight sequences and yes, fatalities. The first fatality debuted at the "Mortal Kombat: Legacy" Comic-Con panel in a fight between Kitana, Johnny Cage and Milena. I won't tell you who wins.



Varla Ventura likes to investigate the bizarre. After writing “The Book of the Bizarre” and “Beyond Bizarre,” she began work on “Among the Mermaids: Facts, Myths, and Enchantments from the Sirens of the Sea,” a new book that recounts old mermaid tales and gives quirky facts on these hybrid animals. After she turned the book in, Animal Planet aired its infamous fake documentary on mermaids, proving that Ventura’s not the only one interested in these mythological creatures.

I spoke to Ventura about what surprised her most while doing her research, what modern accounts of alleged mermaid sightings are like, and how mermaids in mythology can differ from mermaids in popular culture. She also gave me tips on other pieces of bizarre knowledge, like why you can’t file a lawsuit against the devil (in Pennsylvania).
