    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.

Inside The Artist’s Mind..

 In the past our convention coverage, our focus would stay on the art of the comic book pages and the creative minds that put pen to page. In this installment of our adventures at the 2017 Long Beach Comic Expo, we are leaving the pages and moving to the wall, so we can talk with artist Michael Matsumoto.

 Michael is an illustrator and a conceptual artist that delves deep into pop culture for inspiration. During his continuing elevation in the art world, Michael has developed a following and has picked up freelance work in the form of commissioned pieces. Also, during this time, he has found a place in the convention circuit and this is where we crossed paths.

Rob Zombie Returns With More Clown Business..

31

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

We’ve seen the images and information has been scarce, but intriguing. The time has finally arrived and the horror world has its first taste of the next movie from the brilliantly twisted mind of Rob Zombie. There will be blood and grease paint, because here is the trailer for “31”

This film follows a group of carnival workers, as they are kidnapped by a group of sadistic clowns and forced into a psychotic game of survival known as “31”. The cast includes some Zombie regulars and some new faces to Rob’s movie world; such as Malcolm McDowell, Sheri Moon Zombie, Jeff Daniel Phillips, and Richard Brake. These are only a few names to this stellar cast and the world needs to be ready for intensity of Richard Brake’s “Doom-Head”, as Rob has dubbed Brake’s character as the next great horror villain.

I’ve been a fan of Rob Zombie’s music and movies for years, he is the only creative mind that can unleash this type of world without destroying the film’s proper story telling path. In the horror genre, there is a fine line between snuff and fluff, Rob has always balanced that line with a delicate precision.

Saban Films and Lionsgate will be working on the distribution of this film. All the games will begin September 16th on VOD and in selected theaters on October 21st.

NowhereCalifornia.com Reaches Its First Year..

(Joshua Gilmore- Staff Writer)

It started one year ago today, this site was launched and took the concept of Nowhere California to a whole new level.

Nowhere California started in 2011 and it was just another conversation between two friends, but these conversation started taking place in front of a microphone and unleashed on the internet. It was as simple as that, but as Nowhere California evolved, the team grew and new accomplishments were reach.

The episodes started to grow and the team ventured out of the Nowhere city limits, as they dove into the world of conventions and conducting interviews. It was with each accomplishment, the Nowhere California family stuck to their ideals of what they wanted to produce and not to become just another podcast.

It was that mindset that grew into this website and, as we mark our first year on the net, we want to simply say THANK YOU.

Thank you for following the journey of Nowhere California.

Thank you for listening to the original podcast and all of the other podcast that have sprung from this little idea.

Thank you for checking out this site

And thank you for continuing this adventure with us.

The Days of the Dead conventions were unleashed onto the world in July of 2011 with Indianapolis, IN serving as the first location. Since that debut event, the Days of the Dead crew have left their bloody marks across the country and have the continuing goal of presenting a convention “for fans, by fans.”

The Days of the Dead convention will be returning to the west coast in April, the guest list keeps building and this year’s event will spill some ink into the bloody mix, as this leg of the Days of Dead will present their first ever tattoo expo.

DEADPOOL: It’s Trailer Eve, Make Sure You Leave Some Chimichangas Out..

‘Twas the night before the trailer and all through the internet, not a creature was stirring but a Merc with a mouth. The time has finally arrived and we are at the eve of the new Deadpool trailer.

Today is the 11th day of the marvelous 12 days of Deadpool and our day started with a ghost of Deadpool past..

Wolverine, Deadpool’s fellow WEAPON X survivor, decided to commandeer the festivities and treat us to this special image. As everyone remembers, the last time we saw these two together was in the conclusion of the X-Men Origins: Wolverine and the Merc with the Mouth didn’t exactly have a mouth. It’s nice to see this twosome together under better terms.

Now for the main attraction of the 11th day of the 12 days of Deadpool and an appetizer for tomorrow’s new Deadpool trailer..

The excitement is reaching its peak, we received a new TV spot and some truth behind the Easter egg we discovered from Day 7 (Hopefully, this isn’t the last time we’ll see Wolverine), but the main event is only a few hours away.

Ignore your loved ones and stay locked in, as we will hit the final day of the 12 days of Deadpool. Christmas Day will bring onto the world a brand spanking new Deadpool trailer!!

The Cast Of “The Crow” : THEN (1994) And NOW..

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

Last year marked the 20th anniversary of this movie and for the longest time, this movie was at the top of my all-time favorite films. Over the past few years, Charlie Chaplin’s “The Great Dictator” has begun a battle for the top spot and it is a continuing war, but I will always have a special place in my heart for this dark classic.
This movie still has a dark cloud that continues to hang over it, but the true fans of this movie will never let their passion for this movie die.

So with that love and fondness, let’s take a look at the cast THEN (1994) And NOW..

Eric Draven was played by Brandon Lee. Lee was killed in a tragic accident, during production of this film and “The Crow” was his last role.
