Come meet writer Nick Keller at Meltdown Comics, Wednesday July 15th for a signing of Death Head,​ a new horror series from Dark Horse Comics!

A man haunted. A family hunted. When an ancient killer emerges from legend, there is no escape but death.

Now, the Plague Doctor, a villain from the ancient world, will not stop until the entire Burton family is buried six feet under and the mask is returned to it’s rightful owner. The hunt for answers drives Niles to the brink of insanity in the fight to save his family from the masked murderer. In D​eath Head,​ horror hits home as the Burtons discover masks only cover the truth that lies beneath.

Hi guys! Welcome to the DLOD Show! Today we get things going with Dan taking a visit to the Oculus Labs where he gets to try the new Oculus Rift 5.0.

Dan’s being a grumplepuss and he doesn’t want to review a book, so Gabe pulls out two different issues of “Life Plays” by Danny Jimenez. They’re funny, raunchy, kinda stupid, and often horror themed.
To check out “Life PLays”, head over to http://www.blurb.com/user/dannyjay69

Our guest today is game developer E McNeill. “BUT YOU GUYS ALREADY HAD A GAME DEV ON THE SHOW!!!” you say? “Yeah, but this guy develops for the oculus and other VR gaming platforms which is friggin AWESOME,” we reply. His game Darknet is already an Oculus favorite, and he’s hard at work making some awesome new stuff.

As always, thank you guys so much for checking out our little show!!

Find more about what the dudes are up to when they aren’t nerding themselves silly:

Monday June 15, 2015 – Meltdown Comics is excited to present an exclusive live streaming event with renowned paleontologists Matt Mossbrucker (National Geographic’s T-REX AUTOPSY) and Dr. Robert Bakker (DINO DEATH MATCH). Discover how the dinosaurs from JURASSIC WORLD compare to the fossil record in a sold-out event presented by Morrison Museum of Natural History in Denver, Colorado.

In his exciting follow up to Nat Geo Channel’s acclaimed special T-Rex Autopsy, curator Matt Mossbrucker will unveil the latest research in dinosaur exploration. “It’s really exciting to connect this generation of kids with ancient beasts of earth’s history” says Mr. Mossbrucker. “Working with Meltdown Comics we are able to spread our love of paleontology worldwide.”

Meltdown Comics CEO Gaston Dominguez-Letelier is proud to extend the educational arm of Meltdown University. “Artists have been inspired by dinosaurs since the beginning of drawing on cave walls. This unique partnership with the Morrison Museum extends the reach of MeltU and hopefully starts a new era in dino drawing.”

Alamo Drafthouse Denver is hosting this exclusive event which also includes a performance by TED talk alumni Ian Cooke playing a new dinosaur-themed musical piece. Fans are encouraged to visit Alamo Drafthouse to see full size dinosaur bones and connect with these renowned paleontologists.
