A Nowhere Detour To The Underworld..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

 The holidays have been drowned away by the New Year’s hangovers, so the time has come to return to our coverage of Stan Lee’s 2017 Los Angeles Comic Con. The hiatus may have been longer then we hoped, but this spotlight is focused sharply on a talented entry from the world of independent comic books.

In this installment, we continue our adventures into Artist Alley and talk with the creative minds behind “Olive and the Underworld,” Emily Felt and Laura West. This conversation delves into the books creation and development of this story of an orphaned goth girl named Olive and the rollercoaster life she lives, trying to fit in and find a home. As the speed bumps seems to grow, her world and her classmate’s world change in a tragic twist of fate.

I can continue to describe this story, but a better description will come from the creators and not from me, so

Your Cat Videos Are In Danger..

     Now that I have your attention and you can rest assure that we are not a click bait site, we have to talk about something that might be a little boring and it will be the most important thing to keep in your mind in the next few days. The subject is net neutrality and there is a vote coming to possibly destroy the idea of a open/fair internet. This topic has no political lines, it is a line between the haves and the have nots.

     Net Neutrality is the practice that internet service providers (or ISP) must treat all data on the internet the same and not discriminate or charge differently by user, content, or website. For instance, under these principles, ISPs are unable to intentionally block, slow down or charge money for specific websites and online content.

     Now, with all of that said, there is an important vote coming Dec.14 and the goal of these ISPs is to have the FCC change all these rules, so they can turn around and start to throttle the idea of a fair internet to cash in wherever they see fit. There is so much more to the story and I would highly recommend everyone to dive past the regular headlines.

    After you do more research and learn about the pitfalls of the possible rulings, you need to have your voice heard and let the powers that be know that you stand against these plans. You want a fair and open internet.

     There are a lot of ways to have your voice heard. You can call 1-202-418-1000 and leave a voicemail for the Chairman of the FCC. It’s as simple as leaving your name, city and state, and let this man know that you oppose the repeal of Net Neutrality. Also, you can CLICK HERE  And Tell The FCC Where You Stand.

    It’s not a huge secret that Nowhere California loves to shine a spotlight on the world of independent creativity. Also, if there is a project that sticks out to our team, we will keep tabs on the minds behind the projects and George Wassil is one of those minds.

    George is the creator of the comic book series “Oh, Hell” and Nowhere California first crossed paths with him at the 5th annual Long Beach Comic and Horror Con in 2013. Since that first conversation, we have been lucky enough to talk with George on five different occasions.

    Now, before you ask about the fourth conversation, here is our most recent conversation with George from the Stan Lee’s 2017 Los Angeles Comic Con.

Are You Ready For Some Static Cling?

 

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con for 2017 has entered the books and the time has come for Nowhere California to share our adventures at this most excellent event. In the next few weeks, we will be unleashing our favorite moments and conversations for the world to enjoy. In the first installment, the guys from Nowhere have one hoot of a conversation and talk with Carlos Alazraqui.

     Carlos is the multi talented performer from in front of the camera and behind the microphone. The list of characters he has created and voiced can stretch for a decent length, but for one member of the Nowhere California team (namely me) the top of the list will always be held by a certain wallaby named Rocko. Luckily, that wallaby will be returning to thee small screen and to the advanced modern world in 2018 with a new “Rocko’s Modern Life” movie entitled “Static Cling.”

    The entire Nowhere California team would like to send our thanks to Carlos for taking the time to talk to us at the convention. It was a great pleasure and we hope everyone has enjoyed this edition of our LA Comic Con coverage.

Deadpool-2-Teaser-Trailer-2-First-Footage

(Nicholas Dye/Staff Writer)

With the holidays fast approaching, the recent release of Thor: Ragnarok, the upcoming release of Justice League and Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Deadpool arrived and gave us a release…straight into our pants! Everyone’s favorite Merc’ With A Mouth dropped a teaser trailer a-la-Bob Ross to remind us that none of that other shit matters because Deadpool is coming…to theaters…not…oh never mind.

Twentieth Century Fox posted their official synopsis for the highly anticipated sequel and they describe Deadpool 2 as this:

After surviving a near fatal bovine attack, a disfigured cafeteria chef (Wade Wilson) struggles to fulfill his dream of becoming Mayberry’s hottest bartender while also learning to cope with his lost sense of taste. Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.

No seriously…that IS the official synopsis on Deadpool 2’s IMDB page…

We know this much from the trailer…Deadpool is back, he has a sexy slow motion run through the rain, Negasonic Teenage…Whatever The Fuck The Rest Of Her Name Is is back and still giving the bird, Dopinder doesn’t swallow, Chunk from The Goonies is pulling a Drew Barrymore in Firestarter, some irresponsible prick has given a blind woman a gun, Deadpool does a spot on Jesus impression and rises from the grave, and at very end, Michael Jackson has a new shiny glove…or maybe I need to adjust my Cable. Well, I’m gonna go do some blow, you scroll down to watch the trailer and take the “Don’t Nut in Your Pants Challenge.”

 

Dalton is listed as Security in the credits…these guys are killing me.

The Doom Song Rehearsals Begin Now!

 Beware the stars, there is an invasion looming and we have Nickelodeon to blame for this. The nostalgia trend continues to pick up steam at the kid’s cable network and they have announced that “Invader Zim” will be returning in a special television movie.

“As a network that prides itself on a 25-year history of creating groundbreaking, hilarious animation for kids, Invader Zim is one of our great loves. It’s been so exciting to see its popularity grow over the last decade through social media, consumer products, and the Zim comic books,” comments Nick’s senior VP, Content Development and Production, Animation, Chris Viscardi (via VARIETY)

The “Invader Zim” movie has jumped into the current mix of Nickelodeon’s blasts from the pasts, as several other classic NICKtoons are preparing for the television movie treatment.

The details of this production are still developing, but here are a few piece of information that is known. The creator of “Invader Zim”, Jhonen Vasquez, will be returning to lead this new era of Zim. Also, the original voice cast will be returning to give the proper touch to this event.

As details develop, we will pass that information on to you through this site and the Nowhere California Podcast, but for now there is no set air date.

 

The Force Is Strong In The Last Jedi Trailer..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

 This week has brought great excitement to the force and the epicenter has been the 2017 Star Wars Celebration, located this year in Orlando. During this event, there has been panels and other happenings, but the moment the universe has been waiting for has happened and we have our first look at “The Last Jedi”

There you have the first trailer for Episode VIII and Christmas can’t get here soon enough. In this two minute clip, the viewers can quickly tell that we are not got to get any type of flash forward and we are witness to the beginning of Rey’s training. It is a given that it is Jedi training, but where will we see the reality of this episode’s title come into play. The rumors are out there and I can dive deep into them, but that type of discussion will be saved for the podcast (You can find the Nowhere California Podcast on your favorite podcast search engines) or on the comment section of this site. The reality and identity of the LAST Jedi will come into view in December, but that is just a microcosm of this trailer.

 The trailer, as a whole, can be dissected and screams for repeat viewing, so the viewer can hope to catch the slightest hint towards the plot of this film. You can look at the vast landscapes and wonder if you are looking at a rock pile or a surprise character. You can listen to every wave of audio and pin point the source of the whispers. It is a tough mission, but it is a mission the internet is more than happy to accept.

 As the current slate of movie releases have shown, it is an awesome time to be a movie fan and the trailers we have received continue to show that fact to be true. Also, DC and MARVEL can have their dick measuring contests when they release trailers, but the current series of Star Wars has shown their still a force to be reckoned with in the box office. December can’t get here quick enough.

Now for a P.S. to my thoughts on the trailer. This poster is obscene in its awesomeness!

In this installment, the guys from Nowhere talk with Kyle Marlett.

Kyle is the creative mind behind the website MutantPowers.net, this is a site that will help the most normal comic book fan unlock some truly unique gifts and these “gifts” come in the form of specially created magic tricks/special effect.

Kyle’s life and love for nerd culture has been an interesting journey, so you know that this was a conversation that needed to take place and it was a pleasure of the Nowhere California team to talk with this creative mind.

It has never been a secret with Nowhere California that we have made it a point to shine our spotlight on the world of independent creativity. The projects can come from any form of media, if it will spark our interest, we will do everything possible to spread the word.

At the 2017 WonderCon, we crossed paths with two projects that are currently attempting to gain funds through Kickstarter and these campaigns are in their final days. We want to give you the vital information to these projects and, if you see fit, we hope that you will take the time out to support these creative talents.

The first project comes from the mind of Jemma Young and the goal of this project is to release the first printed collection of “Children of Eldair”. “Children of Eldair” is the comic book that Jemma created and current can be seen online at www.eldair.com

This comic follows Embera and Koe, as they try to piece together Embera’s mysterious past and Koe takes a journey through multiple worlds. This description might be basic, but the reality of the work is amazing.

The next project is from a past visitor to Nowhere California and the man behind Wannabe Press, Russell Nohelty. Russell is in the final days of this successful project, but there is still time to have your name attached to something special.

This project is for “Monsters and Other Scary Shit: A Monster Anthology”. This is a collection of monster themed entries and these entries are fueled by a group of creators that are ready to unleash something special.
