    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.

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.

Raoul Duke and Dr. Gonzo have taken the Las Vegas journeys from the pages to the silver screen and their return to print is set, with the help of cartoonist Troy Little. Top Shelf Productions, an imprint of IDW Publishing, has announced this adaptation of “Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas” will begin their entrance into the world of graphic novels.

IDW Publishing has made a name for itself in the world of comics since their start in 1999, they have developed huge franchises and they have taken the proper risks to create a brand that can challenge the iconic legends. Now, with their entrance into the graphic novels battle ground, they are releasing a beloved classic into a world that should fit the works of Hunter S. Thompson like a glove.

“I’m so pleased that one of the first collaborative projects to come out of the Top Shelf/ IDW relationship will be Troy Little’s inspired take on a true classic of American literature,” said Top Shelf Editor-In-Chief Chris Staros in a press release. “One of the most unforgettable writers turned loose in one of my favorite cities! We can’t wait to show you what Troy’s done with it.”
If you have not read this classical work of Hunter S. Thompson, buy the ticket and take the ride. The original novel and 1998 Terry Gilliam film are readily available online. The Troy Little’s graphic novel adaptation is set to be released this month. For more information on the release go to  Top Shelf Productions Official Site

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.
