They made a second Outpost?
Another one?
And nobody said anything about it? ???

It's a stinker.There's a couple of good action scenes - NATO Special Forces against the Nazi Zombies in a small village - and that's all. Should have stick to 1 movie  :?

And behold, there's going to be a 3rd - Outpost: Rise of the Spetsnaz

I think 'Bulletproof Monk' also qualifies in the movie section. Starts with nazi's seeking the scroll in the mountain monastery during the war and ends with a showdown with the supernazi. ;)

A french weird war comic called Block 109 is really good.

Also a comic called the World Eaters is interesting.

Glad to see someone who knows Block 109 ;)  The one in Africa - Opération soleil de plomb - is my favourite, specially because of the helicopters

Yep, got 'The World Eaters' on the list already. :)

I'd love to read Block 109 but I don't speak French. :(

I've been going through and slowly translating it, learning a bit of French along the way. It's a nice buy just from an Artistic perspective as well and You can kind of gleam what they are getting at just from the expressions and some english sounding words.

I've actually been inspired by it to do a little bit of a Weird War scenario. It seems like it has all the right things to make it a good Wargame. Mechs, Ghouls, Assault Rifles, Crazy Beserkers, Russians and the Rest.

Another film to add to the list is War of the Dead

Acting isn't brilliant but there is some good action (and I picked it up in CEX for a couple of quid). They are fast moving undead not the shambler types.

Didn't realize that was released yet.  That movie had been held up for years.  I'll have to track it down.

Not sure if it's been mentioned yet, but Wheatleys "Strange Conflict" has Nazis, Spies, Voodoo, astral dreaming, Haitian zombies and international shipping routes. Been about 15 years since I last read it, but remember it being utterly mental!

Thanks for the heads-up, I'll definitely have to pick that one up.

Also, just updated the list with some new acquisitions (mostly ebooks).

There is a new comic coming out by Avatar Press I believe called "Uber" about Nazi super soldiers fighting in 1945.

1960s? I guess the next Wolfenstein will be set in the late 80s, and BJ teams up with his grandson Billy to fight off the Nazi-Vorticon alliance...

Not just all of Europe, they took the entire planet using crazy super-science technology.

Frankly I can't wait to play it (and I'm wondering how heavily they cribbed from the Wolfenstein game story idea I'd been kicking around :P ).

The second Outpost sequel, called Outpost: Rise of the Spetsnaz, is out. Haven't watched it yet though.

Apart from that I've stumbled upon a new comic book series by Mike Mignola (though he's not drawing it):
Sledgehammer '44 (2 issues)
Lightning War (3 issues)

These tell the story of a US supersoldier (or supersoldiers... read it  ;) ) using a suit powered by the Vril energy. Actually, it is sort of a continuation of Lobster Johnson: The Iron Prometheus.
