The current popularity of the "Twilight" series of books and movies have made the Vampire yet again a media darling. Let's face it though, the sun-sparkling, non-people eating vampires of "Twilight" were designed for a certain audience, those looking for a romance story.
If you like your vampire stories with (if you'll pardon the pun) "more bite," more moral ambiguity, and a lot less teen angst, you'll want to try Charlie Huston's series of Joe Pitt Casebooks. The Joe Pitt series takes place in a Manhattan that's been secretly divided by rival vampire gangs with different philosophical viewpoints on the world and the vampire's place in it.
In 1988 Director John McTiernan and writers Jeb Stuart and Steven E. de Souza revolutionized the action movie with "Die Hard". The film starring Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman introduced movie goers to John McClane, a charismatic New York City Cop who was different than your typical action movie hero because he was very human and had a sharp sense of humor.
It's hard to believe that it's been almost 50 years since the publication of Marvel Comics' "Amazing Fantasy" #15. In that single issue writer Stan Lee and artist Steve Ditko debuted a creation that would go on to become one of the most recognizable and popular pop-culture characters in the world, the Amazing Spider-Man.
Since his debut all those years ago Spidey has experienced many milestones and on July 15 sees the debut of the biggest publishing event in the character's history, "Amazing Spider-Man" #600. It's a giant sized 104 page issue featuring all new content by the current creative team and even Spidey's creator Stan Lee!
