Vinnie Rattolle shares the 1980 "Flash Gordon Book."

Sci Fi Wire shares four clips from Fox TV's upcoming "Human Target" series.


Wayne Allwine, who provided the voice of Mickey Mouse over the past 32 years, has died at age 62.

He was only the third person to lend his voice to the famed rodent. Disney himself started voicing Mickey Mouse in 1928, when he made his talking debut in "Steamboat Willie." Jimmy Macdonald took over the responsibilities in 1947 and handed over the reins to his protege Allwine in 1977.

Allwine provided Mickey's voice for such movies as "Mickey's Christmas Carol" (1983), "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" (1988), and "The Prince and the Pauper" (1990). He also brought Mickey to life for Disney theme parks, television, radio and live stage events
