From Blackwatch Comics come this story, written by Michael Easton and with art by Steven Perkins. Credence: Lose This Skin which picks up after the events of the Credence graphic novel, continuing the story of the character who “Gives the Bad Lieutenant a run for his money” (-Abel Ferarra).

It’s been a busy month for Easton, as we previously reported his film Ultraviolent was named “Best of Show” in the Best Short Films competition.

Check out the very cool trailer for Credence: Lose This Skin after the jump, which is set to the music of Nine Inch Nails! Then let us know what you think of the multi-talented Mr. Easton!

I am in awe of his many talents. Michael excels at all he sets out to accomplish.

Wonder if Michael is really working out an alter-ego, more similar to his role in OLTL, since writers obviously aren’t picking up on his acting strengths and what he could really add to GH. Maybe they should let him collaborate with his story-line, or just let him write it himself. Talk about being totally underused on GH. At least they haven’t made him silly like Nina or Ava…yet.

P.S. If the ratings are looking for the younger demo, graphic novels sell well to this group, mainly guys. But increasing females, especially anime with girl heroines. Another reason to “consult” with Michael.

Rose, hi
Both Frank and Ron worked with Michael on OLTL, I believe they know his talents..
He has not been in a story because he has been busy doing his movie, writing, producing, and promoting his Ultraviolent movie etc..
Then he wrote his new novel ”Credence” and promoted it..
Michael has been a very busy man outside of GH..
Perhaps now that’ his ‘ movie is doing well he will have more time for GH 🙂
I hope so! I really love Michael Easton !!

It would be great to have Michael write a story for GH, he is deep dark writer !!

Really looking forward to the books release. Easton is incredibly talented and extends a bravery in his writing that many would cower in fear to the level of vulnerability. Michael just bleeds honesty. Awesome.

I thing he’s pretty awesome, too, Su. And, I hope you’re right when you say that now he will have more air time on GH.
Wouldn’t it be ironic if he and Nina would fall back in love? It seems that this love-lost ‘thing’ with Franco is not meant to be.
Nina thinks she is losing her mind, which means she will pay Silas more visits…he does have a way of assuring her. Perhaps it will be Silas who will uncover Rick’s and MadMaddie’s diabolical scheme.

@CeeCee….Bonjour….
I hope your right CeeCee… What Rick & MadMaddie are currently doing
to Nina is utterly reprehensible. How you feel about Sonny… I feel X10
toward Despicable Rick… This isn’t his first go round, mistreating the
women of PC seems to be his ongoing theme. Silas has a calming effect
on Nina, he’s able to reason with her and keep her somewhat grounded.
Between Silas, Ava and Franco… Hopefully one of them will figure it out.

CeeCeem hi..
Silas feels very guilty that his kidnapping Avery has brought Nina to her situation of her believing she is losing her mind..
I see good stuff with Silas and Nina coming!

Hi, Fanny….Bon après-midi.
Now, I have seen it all. Just when I thought the ultimate skeeviness had Alexis’ name written all over it; along comes MadMaddie to steal the show. Seriously?? Not only am I shocked that Miss MadMaddie would hurt her daughter thus; I get grossed out with hers and Rick’s make-out sessions. She’s older than either of my grandmothers. I just can’t…Oh, my Lord!!
He is so repulsive, Fanny. As I said earlier…Rick is Sonny’s brother. Sadly, such creepy-crawly characters exist in real life.
It is time for all these people get their comeuppance.

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

TODAY: General Hospital Rebroadcasts Masterful 52nd Anniversary Episode

Fans are in for a treat today (Friday, May 22nd) when ABC’s General Hospital airs an encore presentation of one of the finest hours of soap opera in the history of the genre, with its 52nd anniversary episode from April 1, 2015.

In the episode, viewers finally learned what turned Luke (Tony Geary) into Fluke, which has been the on-going story for months; but it all lead up to the shocking reveal, when Luke revisited his past in his broken down childhood home and the demons that haunted him.

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
