Good friend of the site, Scott Johnson from MyExtraLife.com has kicked off a brand new project.Â What’s better than 56 Geeks?Â How about 56 Zombies? I got started on â€œ56 Zombiesâ€ last night. Ultimately, this will be a complete poster sized photo print chock full of zombies of note. Keep your eye on this Flickr group, where Iâ€™ll post these as they are complete. Excited to get going with it. As always, you need to follow Scott’s work and get ready to buy the big print when the project is finally complete. via MyExtraLife

Man What A Day!Â And it ain’t even over yet.Â The first half of the My Extra Life Nerdtacular II was a huge success.Â Everyone in the theater loved the Dark Knight.Â There were prizes given away, a fountain of glow sticks pouring down on the audience, a chance to meet people from all over North America, and even the Dark Knigh his bad self showed up. And yes, some of them actually know about Major Spoilers. So without further adieu, here’s a portion of the photos taken at today’s event.
Anyone who every read Spawn, or likes to get their hands on well crafted action figures, has heard of Todd McFarlane.Â But how many of you have had the opportunity to actually interview the man?Â Â Long time friend of Major Spoilers, and host of the ELR and The Instance podcasts, Scott Johnson (www.myextralife.com) got the word from Todd, and ended up interviewing him for both shows. What I did not expect was to come away with a wealth of advice and life lessons as a cartoonist. Any of you that are interested in art, drawing, cartooning, whateverâ€¦you HAVE to listen
For those of you who are interested in the Nerdtacular II event hosted by Scott Johnson at MyExtraLife (and sponsored by your very own Major Spoilers), you might be interested to know there are going to be some great prizes at the event. The biggest so far is a Nintendo Wii. A lucky Nerdtacular attendee will receive one of these bad boys in a drawing before the movie. How cool is that? Too cool, thatâ€™s how cool. I wish I could give the donator more props but he wantâ€™s to remain anonymous. Cool indeed. Keep a sharp eye out for

Saturday was a busy weekend for comic fans. First it was Free Comic Book Day, then there was that whole Planet ComiCon dealie, but the big event had to be the Extra Life Nerdtacular Spider-Man III event sponsored in part by Major Spoilers.
