Because We Can't Just Sit Back And Hope For A Happy Ending!


Old Redeye is back and that's not to suggest Barry Renshaw has been a little greedy with the sauce but rather to announce the return of the monthly magazine, this time in pdf format, primarily focussing on the indie British comics scene. What can we say, it's quite simply brilliant and is bursting at the seams with news, reviews, features and art and is more than worth the measly £1/$1.50 price of a download.

To BackToFrankBlack campaigners, Barry is no stranger. He created and designed our exclusive merchandise range, is an active member of the Millennium fan community, created the artwork that graces our intro page and continues to plug this campaign with a five, yes five, page spread in this very magazine.

Showing support for the people that in turn support us is vital. Their time, devotion and energy for this campaign swallows their spare time and is done for with nothing asked for in return. Support the supporters is a phrase I'm fond of so do exactly that. £1 of your money will entertain you more than you ever thought it could.

• REDEYE MAGAZINE ISSUE 2.1: 114 pages, colour, PDF format, 82mb direct download. Just £1/$1.50! Download it from www.enginecomics.co.uk/redeye

The time is near! FRANK SPOTNITZ REDUX

From the very beginning, this campaign has been proud to have had the support and encouragement of Ten Thirteen luminary, Frank Spotnitz. Frank was involved in no fewer than forty four episodes of Millennium and is evidently an individual who knows this franchise inside and out. Frank has very generously agreed to give of his time, again, to speak to BackToFrankBlack and we cannot thank him enough for the warmth he has extended to us.

For that reason we urge you to check out this very blog at the weekend for an opportunity to hear BackToFrankBlack's latest interview with the 1013 luminary himself.

All that and a new competition coming soon, an exclusive behind the scenes look at 'Jose Chung's Doomsday Defense' and news of an exciting new online magazine that will be supporting the campaign each and every week.

The thing's they've told me: The fans section!

This is one of my favourite blog categories to update because it's you're category, the little grotto we've tucked aside to share your thoughts, emails, artwork and so on and believe me when I say that everything we receive is very much appreciated. Like the great man himself it would appear that a number of Lance Henriksen supporters are very talented artists and this little gem arrived courtesy of a new friend of ours at our Youtube channel by the name of Kyle which was lovingly created by artist Yayoi Neko, the author of Media Blasters' "Incubus." Check out her fantastic DeviantArt page here!

I was absolutely blown away by this, there's no way on earth I could create anything even approaching the skill and talent on display here and I'm sure you will join with me in congratulating the artist on a rather fantastic piece of art.

Don't let such mastery put you off mind, you don't need to be a budding Van Gogh to make an appearance on our Blog. Taking the time to write to us, telling us about your love of the show and why you want to see Frank Black return is a perfect way to demonstrate the level of support and admiration that still exists for Frank Black and we are always eager to hear from you guys. So as soon as you've sent those letters to 20th Century Fox, put finger to keyboard and drop us a line at info@backtofrankblack.com.

Avatar Vision Proudly Presents - ABOVE DEAD LETTERS!

It's time once again for another helping of televisual goodness from my friend and yours, Josef who has been busy cutting and mixing another episode of Millennium to create yet another stunning montage video. We have to give credit to him because with each new video release comes another Youtube friend, email or subscription from a Millennium fan who wasn't aware of our campaign. Today's treat? A rather dark little montage taken from the episode, "Dead Letters."

Now I know there are people out there wanting to support the campaign but don't have Josef's talents (like myself for example) wondering of ways to help support us, well wonder no more. Get those typing fingers into gear and send an email to info@backtofrankblack.com and tell us all about yourself, your love of the show and we will get back to you with ways you can help the campaign. We are always eager to hear from fans and will reply to each and every one of you as soon as we are able.
So grab that popcorn and settle down for another instalment of Avatar Vision. Don't forget, let Josef know what you think of his efforts in our comments section.

The end is here: Competition winner announced!

Well here's the moment we know you've been waiting for, the winner of our exclusive competition to win a signed DVD and Soundtrack of Brett Hart's amazing movie, Bone Dry, is Jaclyn French. Congratulations to Jaclyn and our commiserations to those of you who didn't win the competition this time.


This competition has received the highest number of entries of any competition we have run so far so we know the interest in this movie is high and we can heartily recommend it to you, Brett Hart and Lance Henriksen makes for a fantastic combination. Once again, our considerable gratitude to Brett for not only donating the prizes but for recording a video to launch the competition and for being such a valuable and respected supporter of our efforts.
