A couple weeks ago, I posted part one of Max Dagger: Symphony of Badass – the new film from the guys from Tasty Dude Films. Above, you can see part two in the five-part noir serial. The “Tasty Dudes” are friends of the site, and I would appreciate it if you give the movie a look.
Now, on to the week online. Lots of interesting news and writing, including a couple new bars coming to Maine and a two-book deal for the author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Check it all out after the jump.
