Forget about Batman versus Superman and Captain America versus Iron Man doesn’t hold a candle to a battle that has been fought for centuries. The war of the ages have been fought between the worlds of man versus the brutal beasts we know as ROCKS! During the 2016 Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Convention, the guys from Nowhere had the pleasure to talk with the men behind the insanity known as MAN Vs. ROCK.

Kevin Bieber and Victor De Troy are the creator of this comic book madness, the world of MAN Vs. ROCK is something that has to be seen to be believed and the same can be said about talking to these two men. The Nowhere California team didn’t have a video camera ready, but the audio will allow you to take fun journey.

In recent years the Hollywood system seems to have grown complacent to the fans that help build their bank accounts and credibility. Every year for every popular movie, there are multiple movies that should have seen a lot more red light and lesser green ones. The fan’s apathy could cause the next lackluster installment of “Fantastic 4” or the fan’s passion could rise up and decide for the original content we deserve. This is where LEGION M comes in and changes the Hollywood machine.

LEGION M is the first fan owned entertainment company, the fans make the decisions and the fans will reap the rewards. At the recent Los Angeles Comic Convention, the co-founder and president of LEGION M., Jeff Annison was in attendance at the convention to introduce the convention goers to the world of LEGION M and their current project the “Pitch Elevator”

I was lucky enough to sit down with Jeff and delve into the creation of this unique concept…

The Blacklist Revisited.. A Look From Nowhere At “Trumbo”

(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

During the late 1940’s, the fear of communism was sweeping the nation and the label of “communist” was a one way ticket to a destroyed life. At this time, the US government established the House Committee on Un-American Activities and this committee began to summon anyone they suspected of less than American qualities.

There was one community they questioned and, in some eyes, used as an example, that group was the big names of Hollywood. There was no position that was protected and everyone seem to be getting summoned, but there were some professionals that refused to answer these subpoenas. This group were known as “The Hollywood Ten”

These writers, producers, and directors decided to refuse to answer the committee’s question, as they claimed that this form of questioning stepped on their constitutional rights. These actions were not tolerated and contempt charges were leveled, after a House of Representatives vote of 346 to 17.

The members of “The Hollywood Ten” were hit with fines and jail times, but a lingering punishment was attached to them, “The Hollywood Ten” were now blacklisted. While on the black list, these people could not find work in the Hollywood system and their lives were altered forever.

At first, the black list contained only “The Hollywood Ten” and the list continued to grow. The list continued through the 1960’s and contained over 150 names, but it all started with “The Hollywood Ten” and Dalton Trumbo was a member of the group.

Dalton Trumbo was a screenwriter and novelist, he enjoyed some success and built a strong career, but everything changed in October 1947. In that year, Trumbo was placed on the black list and he wasn’t ready to disappear into Hollywood oblivion. Trumbo’s time on the black list and his battle to regain his career is the plot of the new film called “Trumbo”

“Trumbo” is directed by Jay Roach and follows the career of Dalton Trumbo, who is played by Bryan Cranston, as he is black listed and decides to rebel against the system.

When watching the trailer of “Trumbo”, you realize this story revolves around a forgotten era of Hollywood and this era is a period of time that some viewers will not understand. The Hollywood black list is a time where the victims didn’t sit and complain, they just simply wanted to get back to work and “Trumbo” is a film that will get this story out to a generation that could use a reminder to fight for you passion.

The cast and crew that assembled for this project seem to be dedicated and passionate about the subject. Honestly, I can not wait for the release of the movie in November.
