If you think you've heard about this one before, you're correct. Way back in 2004 - years before becoming "The Rock Father," I was working regularly in television and film, and pretty much dropped everything to focus on bringing one of my own visions to the big screen - a genre-bending crime/horror hybrid called DEATH WALKS THE STREETS (DWTS). The tagline was a big hook - "Vampires. Demons. Zombies. Werewolves. The Mob." - and what followed was a few years of absolute craziness that saw the in-development film and its two planned sequels (one was written) get coverage in major media, get nominated for a Spike Scream Award for "Most Anticipated Film" (a category sponsored by Hot Topic) and the ahead-of-their-time video "making-of" video podcasts get nominated for an Emmy, all while casting was tackled, set/costume/prop design was completed, and special FX tests were underway. Sadly, the project fell apart due to a massive storm of "circumstances beyond our control" for my co-writer and I, but the plus side is that a prequel comic book series took shape in the years that followed. 

13 years into the DWTS journey, there's still new friends discovering the DWTS world for the very first time, and in the eight years since the first comic was published, new readers have been enjoying and experiencing our stories on a weekly basis. For Halloween, we're inviting YOU to experience DEATH WALKS THE STREETS through a FREE DOWNLOAD of DWTS #0 and DWTS #1 (the Halloween issue!) via Noisetrade Books!

With STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS opening in theaters just two weeks from today, excitement for a new journey to a galaxy far, far away is brewing. For the youngest generation of new fans comes a 22-page activity kit and coloring pages direct from the team at Disney & Lucasfilm. There's a memory game, a door hanger, a corner bookmark and tools for a papercraft cockpit and control panel. But for me, the most exciting part is the coloring pages - with kids (or grownups) able to color Kylo Ren, Finn, Rey, BB-8, Poe Dameron and more! The best part? It's available as a FREE Download right now.

November 19, 2015: Tonight, Let me begin with a preface to a letter I wrote a few weeks ago from my hotel room in Berlin while on our final tour for this album.
