The second part to Halo-8's post-nuke, punk rock animation series, Godkiller: Walk Among (amazon) streets today. This time we get a 45 minute episode which is a bit more satisfying than the first 25 minute part. This series based on the comic book by Matt Pizzolo and illustrator Anna Muckcracker is truly groundbreaking stuff so check it out if possible.

Also out this week is the Criterion Collection edition of Matteo Garrone's documentary-like, gangster film, Gomorrah (amazon). I've heard nothing but good things about this one and I can't wait to finally catch it on DVD.

Another heavy hitter out this week comes to us from Troma's new "Tromasterpeice Collection" which brought us the impressive 25th Anniversary Edition of Combat Shock. This time they're outdoing themselves by releasing a 3-disc DVD set of Philippe Mora's 1976 film, Mad Dog Morgan (amazon), starring Denis Hopper at his absolute craziest. If you've seen the Documentary on Aussie cult cinema, Not Quite Hollywood, then you already know why I'm exciting to see a definitive version of this rare gem.

Last but not least, we've got Christian Viel's third part (and counting) to his popular scifi schlock-series, Recon 2023: The Gauda Prime Conspiracy (Amazon). This one was pretty much despised by our own Ben Austwick, but I know there are some loyal Recon fans out there just dying to check this one out.
