Scream Factory gives horror fans the first ever Blu-ray release of George A. Romero’s adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Dark Half.” It was one of two films the Godfather of the Dead made under the shadow of a major Hollywood studio.

After taking in DC Comics’ latest issue of Batgirl, I regret not having jumped onboard a month earlier. Issue #35 launched the series back in time to the younger years of Barbara Gordon’s battle against crime. I can’t begin to tell you what a breath of fresh air the creative team of Cameron Stewart, Brendon Fletcher, and Babs Tarr has contributed to the monthly title.
