Last month (give or take a couple of weeks), we lined out the nominations for the Harvey Awards, a prestigious honor in the comic book industry dedicated to the late great Harvey Kurtzman. I’ll add the information about this particular honor down below, but here are the recently announced winners. Let’s take a look.

Back in July, I shared the nominees for the 45th Annual Saturn Awards and you actually don’t need to refer to that post since I’ve decided to not only list the winning names with this kind of narrative but also those who each honoree went head to head against. I think that it makes this kind of post a little more interesting and since this is a lengthy read, I will get right on down to business. Take a look at who won and who didn’t and know that I shall return at the close with some additional editorial viewpoints. Remember that this is an event curated by The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror. Enjoy.

Artist: Various Artists Title: “A Very Spidey Christmas” Label: Sony Classical Release Date: 12/21/2018 Genre: Holiday/Comedy Rating: 4/5
I recently caught the brand-new animated Spider-Man feature by Sony Pictures called “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse” which was a whole lot of fun for a wide age range of viewers. We’re big superhero fans here at the PiercingMetal Media Command HQ and regularly offer up critique on the comic book and film industry that releases such as this are geared towards and some items about the film can be enjoyed HERE. During the film, the original Spider-Man of the film lines out a number of his accomplishments with one of them being a Christmas Album. That brings us to “A Very Spidey-Christmas” and with today being Christmas Eve, I figured lets do a quick overview of this fun little EP. There are five tracks in all but the entire release is only 10 minutes in length so you can give it a quick listen in Spotify if you are so compelled when all is said and done. Now let’s discuss the tracks. Continue reading “A Very Spidey Christmas” by Various Artists→
We’ve been lauding the arrival of the Sony Animated feature “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse” for a few months now and only recently shared some super cool promotional posters with the readership. You can check those out by clicking THIS LINK in the event you missed it, and not to worry because the second Official Trailer is in there as a link as well. I’ve tried to cover all the bases for your ease of enjoyment. Anyway, before I lose too much track of the point – the film opens today in theaters everywhere. Let’s review the Theatrical Poster, premise and cast before I close out with some editorial opinion.
It’s been a couple of months since the share of the second Official Trailer for the soon to open computer animated feature “Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse”, and if you were sleeping in that day and missed it, please click HERE because I want you to be on point about this one as best as possible. The film features the Miles Morales Spider-Man who is a super hot comic book character at the moment and it was cool to see Sony Pictures giving him the chance to shine. As you know, Sony holds the license for the Marvel Comics property and has begun to build their own Spider-Verse with this feature and most recently “Venom” (which was a live-action film). To help celebrate the opening of the film, I’ve culled together a number of the promotional posters that I found on assorted film mediums. I’ll start with the teaser poster and close us out with the Official Theatrical one. Now, check them out….and by all means enjoy.
