Where's Sheldon Cooper? He's here!

The Big Bang Theory ended Season 7 on a cliff hanger with Sheldon about to board a train and head off into the unknown.  This is kinda distressing for BBT fans as we're not sure how well Sheldon can cope on his own.

However, I'm here to tell you that it's all okay! The world has CCTV cameras, and we can see pretty well where Sheldon is.

Alterna Comics talk The Chair, Trading Cards, Pop Culture and more!

You know how sometimes you're just travelling around the internet and you find the most incredible site and you think, "I have to DO something with that?"

That's exactly what happened to me with Alterna Comics.

Alterna Comics was created by president and publisher Peter Simeti on January 4th, 2007. Alterna has published a variety of genres, including but not limited to: horror, sci-fi, suspense, humor, superhero, children's titles, and fantasy/adventure.  Alterna Comics titles are currently distributed through print by Diamond Comics Distributors and Partners Book Distributors and through digital by Comixology, Drivethru Comics, iVerse, and My Digital Comics.

President and publisher Peter Simeti was kind enough to answer some probing questions from me.

What inspired you to start a creator-owned graphic novel publisher?

There's a tremendous amount of talented artists and writers out there and I wanted to essentially help spread the word about their stories.

Have you always had a fascination with comics / pop culture?

Yes, as long as I could remember. Read my first comic when I was six years old, it was a Spectacular Spider-Man issue and I've loved them since.

Help Kaley Cuoco Sweeting Save the Seals

Hey all!! Well, I'm in a bit of an emotional way tonight, and it's too hard to allow myself to go to the place, even mentally, where seals are being killed by man for sport.

No... no, no!! Not today, not ever, should this be a reality!! But it is. I logged onto Twitter and saw a viral campaign taking place right under my eyes. Kaley Cuoco Sweeting's campaigning against the commercial seal hunt in Canada, and she needs your help.

Enough is enough, really! Let's stop this! I read the following quote by the genius Leonardo Da Vinci today: 

""Truly man is the king of beasts, for his brutality exceeds them. We live by the death of others. We are burial places! I have since an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men will look upon the murder of animals as they look upon the murder of man."

Let's make that time now!

The tenacity and passion of one of South Africa’s greatest country singing legends, here and internationally, LANCE JAMES has been documented and will finally be in print and available to his masses of eager fans early next week.

KEEP IT COUNTRY is a fast moving dramatized biography that tells the story of the life and times of country singing legend ‘Big Daddy’ Lance James…. It gets up close and personal to an incredibly private, humorous and passion driven entertainer, who is no stranger to tragedy.

It’s a roller coaster of high speed chases at Le Mans, blizzards in the Alps, venomous snakes in the audience, wildcat trips to Nashville and exotic contracts in London and Spain.

It’s romantic, funny, loaded with pathos and allows you the reader to take a peep at…. his life….his career….his loves….his cries and his whispers. It’s an insight into the heart and soul of the man…. that nobody has ever seen!

It’s international paparazzi material at its best!

Jim Parsons is Wheelchair Jimmy and he needs your help!

Hey all! As most of you know I'm a big fan of the show The Big Bang Theory. I have a Google Alert on the name 'Jim Parsons', one of the stars of the show. One my Google Alert results included a link which read "Jim Parsons Looks to Raise $50,000 via Indiegogo to Take WheelchairJimmy and His Accessibility Travel Website to the Next Level of Success"

It intrigued me!

When I clicked it I realised that this WASN'T the Jim Parsons from Big Bang Theory. But it didn't matter because when I read about the cause I knew I wanted to chat to THIS Jim Parsons and see if I could bring a bit of exposure to what he is doing. 

There are probably two things you need to know before you read further.
