In your living room, no one can hear you screaming for joy. A new TV series set in the ALIEN universe is being developed for FX and Hulu by Fargo creator, Noah Hawley.

Jon discovered a fan made online comic book, Batman: Eldritch. As the name implies, it blends Batman and the Cthulhu Mythos. It’s a fairly short read. The story’s not bad and the art is pretty cool looking. Very evocative for the subject matter. Check it out. 

The Malleus Monstrorum hardcover two-volume slipcase is now available from the Chaosium website! This is a beast, (pun intended)! Chaosium also released a short YouTube video that displays the new slipcase edition of this immense bestiary. 

It looks like a production company, Full Moon, is looking to create a television series called Miskatonic U which will center around the university and the town of Arkham, Massachusetts. According to a Screen Rant article, it will be structured like the Stephen King series, Castle Rock. So far, there’s no indication on when this series would launch or who would be carrying it.
