H-Day 2008: The Complete Experience

Eleven years ago, the founders of this site had another one called the Meekrat Entertainment Group. The name was born of a misunderstanding of the animal’s name and this set the tone for what followed and served as a precursor to what would eventually become the Fictosphere. In 2008, Mikenificent (which is to say me)Continue reading “H-Day 2008: The Complete Experience”

The Monster Status of the Michael Myerses

My original intent for this article was a simple follow-up to my Monster Status of Jason Voorhees article, but as I rewatched the Halloween series (minus Halloween III since it doesn’t involve Michael Myers) I discovered that it wasn’t a question with a clear answer because even following the criteria I had set for myself,Continue reading “The Monster Status of the Michael Myerses”

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: “Monsters Among Us”

We’re returning to the 2012 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles once again for a multi-part epic swarming with monsters. For those of you unfamiliar with the Ninja Turtles, as they’re colloquially known, I wrote about them here and, as prophesied, you can get a quick run-down of what’s what in the beginning of that article, thoughContinue reading “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: “Monsters Among Us””

Revisiting Pinky and the Brain: “A Pinky and the Brain Halloween”

This article originally ran on Third Attempt on October 5, 2008. Despite the introduction, it was the only Halloween special revisit that ever ran on that site and was, in fact, the last post on that site before the advent of the Meekrat Entertainment Group which was a precursor to the Fictosphere. The first specialContinue reading “Revisiting Pinky and the Brain: “A Pinky and the Brain Halloween””

Revisiting Darkwing Duck: “Ghoul of My Dreams”

There are several Darkwing Duck episodes which could potentially qualify as “horror” including two with actual demonic entities. There’s also several episodes with a wealth of horror-tinged characters, such as “Fungus Among Us” which introduced Darkwing’s future love interest Morgana Macawber and an army of killer mushrooms. Unfortunately, none of those episodes are on DVDContinue reading “Revisiting Darkwing Duck: “Ghoul of My Dreams””

The Banana Splits Movie: The Weird Horror Adaption We Need Right Now?

For me, the Banana Splits have always been a thing of darkness. My first encounter with them was late at night in the late nineties, a time when Cartoon Network had neither Adult Swim nor the Toonami they have today. Instead, they ran a lot of old shows and one of those programs was TheContinue reading “The Banana Splits Movie: The Weird Horror Adaption We Need Right Now?”

Revisiting DuckTales: “Ducky Horror Picture Show”

With the current DuckTales between seasons (and with the third season promising us an almost complete revisit of the Disney Afternoon block) it’s a prime time to take a look back at its predecessor from 1987. When it debuted, it brought with it comics, video games, toys, and even a movie whose relative failure causedContinue reading “Revisiting DuckTales: “Ducky Horror Picture Show””

Mikenificent’s Spooktacular Webcomic: Count Pikachu

Since we’re in the midst of a Fictosphere Spooktacular, I figured I’d dredge up my second webcomic story which is, coincidentally, horror themed! As you can see from the logo above, it concerns a vampirized Pikachu. Unlike my first webcomic, this one wasn’t a spin-off of anything and is honestly a lot better. There’s aContinue reading “Mikenificent’s Spooktacular Webcomic: Count Pikachu”

Mikenificent’s First Webcomic: Bill and Fred’s Nonexcellent Adventure

Today, here’s a different kind of Throwback Thursday in that this is essentially a brand new article but the content it’s covering is old. It’s very old, indeed, and is in fact the first webcomic I ever did. It’s relevant because I’m revisiting the characters in Milty’s Fictocomic Calvacade, which I haven’t posted about hereContinue reading “Mikenificent’s First Webcomic: Bill and Fred’s Nonexcellent Adventure”
