New Year got you feeling a little "flushed?" Check out the NEW Strange Kids Club!

No worries. Strange Kid is back in business with a slew of cool new stuff planned for 2011 including the announcement of a brand new website: That's right, SKC has gone "legit" with it's very own domain name, and to make it even easier for you to find your favorite articles we have a new layout and navigation system. Although our Blogger site will remain active, all new content can be found over at the new website so please re-adjust your RSS feeds accordingly.

We've also got a few new columns planned including the return of our Creative Spotlight feature, new webcomics, podcasts, and even more guest posts such as Jose Cruz's Bad Issues feature. Speaking of Cruz, he is also responsible for genesis of What Makes You a Strange Kid?, a new feature dedicated to clubhouse members that allows you to share your story behind what makes you a "strange kid."

As if that's not enough, we've also got our first SKC Anthology featuring a line-up a mega-talented artists that we've had the pleasure of either meeting or interviewing this past year. An exlcusive t-shirt is in the works and, of course, our series of long-promised vlogs featuring Strange Kid himself are all planned for 2011 as well. So thanks for reading our stories, laughing (at least politely) at our bad puns, and just for generally being a part of our strange little world here. We hope that you will stick with us this year and beyond!

Once again, all new updates will be made available at

It's a "Muppet Family Christmas!"

In the spirit of the season (and the fact that I'm currently traveling) I'm going to keep this as short and sweet as possible. The clubhouse has had quite a run this year with an aggressive publishing schedule of (relatively speaking) 1-2 articles daily, 3x the number of club members following along, and several new contributors and friends alike on board. With a new site in the works alongside an official Strange Kids Anthology on the horizon, 2011 looks to be even better and it's all thanks to each and every one of you. Whether you visit the clubhouse to read the latest interview every Monday, enjoy the featured comics, or just like hearing me rant about the good old times of yesteryear I want to take this time to say thank. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Celebrating the Work of Tod Slaughter in 'The Greed of William Hart'

In celebration of a Tod Slaughter Christmas, currently being held over at From Beyond Depraved courtesy of Jose Cruz, I thought it might be fun to take a look at what many considered to be the actor's final film (at least his last feature film): The Greed of William Hart (aka Horror Maniacs).

Based on the ghoulish exploits of William Burke and William Hare, also known as the West Port murders, The Greed of William Hart is the second film ever to adapt the tale of the two fiends (preceded only by Lugosi and Karloff loosely referenced The Body Snatchers). Originally entitled Crimes of Burke and Hare, the film drew so much controversy in England that it was later retitled for Ambassador's 1948 theatrical release, though the story still maintained its macabre sense of murder, greed, and medical mischief.
