Some of you may have heard of a theater production organized in Seattle during the summer. Well, Erica Fraga and Keva Andersen had the pleasure of attending and enjoying this play and they brought back goodies for all of us!
Learn about the origins of this genuine production as well as many curious details about the genre of Burlesque.
Our thanks go to all the people involved in this play and to Erica, Dayna and Keva for their great collaboration!

You know who gives a great interview? Comic Book Writer, Joe Harris. We had the opportunity to share a few inquiries with the talented man, who's as you know, the writer behind The X-Files: Season 10 comic books that are taking the X-Phile world by storm.
He's not new to the world of writing or comics, and most recently announced the beginning of a new production as he and his team recently sold Ghost Projekt to NBC.
As if he didn't have enough projects out there, he also continues to release Great Pacific, currently in its Issue #10. That's merely a brief description of what the man is up to these days. But now onto what you want to know...
You’ve talked about IDW approaching you to write The X-Files comics and jumping at the chance. Now here we are at the release of the first issue…how did that whole creative process unfold?
When IDW first approached me, I kind of immediately knew what I wanted to do. I wanted to open with this idea that Mulder and Scully, out of action for some time following the last movie, would find themselves hunted by a mysterious group of X-Files targeting, alien-connected “Acolytes” who were somehow tied to the overarching mythology. I had a wish list of stuff I wanted to make happen, and IDW, and FOX wanted to happen, from the return of The Lone Gunmen and the Cigarette Smoking Man, Doggett and Reyes, etc. It was around when I was first sitting down to start scripting the first issue that Chris Carter became involved, and he offered some notes that shaped the opening arc, “Believers” a bit further.
