From the blog of Eric Trautmann:

I was recently asked to provide a "commentary track" for Flash Gordon: Zeitgeist #1, which is now available in its entirety on Comic Book Resources.

Basically, it's just some annotations—where I got some of the ideas, why I made some of the choices I made, and so on.

It is also a great way to check it out, if you've been on the fence.

Here's the link; and if you are enjoying the series, please pass on the link as far and wide as possible.

‘DOCTOR STRANGE’ EYES ‘HANNIBAL’ STAR MADS MIKKELSEN TO PLAY VILLAIN
08/27/15 @ 3:40 pm EST
Source: Variety | Categories: Doctor Strange | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Mads Mikkelsen Doctor Strange

“Hannibal” star Mads Mikkelsen is in early talks to play one of the villains in Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” opposite Benedict Cumberbatch, Variety has learned exclusively. While sources say no offer has been delivered, one is expected shortly. Marvel had no comment on Mikkelsen’s involvement.

Tilda Swinton and Chiwetel Ejiofor are on board to co-star. Scott Derrickson is directing the comic book movie from a script by Jon Spaihts. Marvel’s Kevin Feige will produce.

Cumberbatch will play Stephen Vincent Strange, a former neurosurgeon who becomes the next Sorcerer Supreme and primary protector of Earth against magical and mystical threats. Marvel Comics artist Steve Ditko created the character in 1963. Swinton will play Strange’s mentor, The Ancient One, while Ejiofor will appear as Baron Mordo, who also studies magic under The Ancient One in the comic books, before becoming Doctor Strange’s nemesis.

Mikkelsen’s exact role remains under wraps, but sources say he will be another antagonist to Cumberbatch’s titular sorcerer.

“Doctor Strange” will debut on Nov. 4, 2016 with production set to start late this year.

Marvel has been interested in Mikkelsen for some time, at one point courting him for the villainous Malekith in “Thor: The Dark World,” until Mikkelsen won the role of the titular cannibal in NBC’s “Hannibal” and was no longer available. The Malekith role eventually went to Christopher Eccleston.

If accepted, this would be Mikkelsen’s second high-profile role in the wake of “Hannibal’s” cancellation — he’ll also appear in “Star Wars: Rogue One,” which will hit theaters on December 16, 2016. He is repped by UTA and Art Management.

GALAXY QUEST TV SERIES LANDING AT AMAZON
08/27/15 @ 3:26 pm EST
Source: Entertainment Weekly | Categories: MIsc | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment




The Galaxy Quest crew has found a new home.

Amazon Studios is developing a series based on the beloved1999 cult sci-fi hit, EW has learned exclusively.

The streaming outlet is partnering with producer Paramount Television on the project. Last April, media outlets repoirted that Paramount was shopping a Galaxy Quest title to prospective buyers.

Unlike many high-concept movies, the story behind Galaxy Questseems as suitable for a TV series as it was for a theatrical film. The original premise: The cast of a cheesy-yet-endearing Star Trek-like series find themselves abducted and forced to run a real starship by a race of embattled aliens that mistook their show for a documentary.

The show’s development is at an early stage. It’s not clear if members of the film’s cast will be sought for the show, or if the series will be a complete reboot. The film had some major (and tough to get) names among the NSEA Protector crew—including Sigourney Weaver, Tim Allen, Alan Rickman and Sam Rockwell.

Behind the camera, however, the crew is very much the same. The film’s co-writer Robert Gordon will pen the script and executive produce the pilot. The film’s director Dean Parisot will direct and executive produce. And executive producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein are on board as well. (You might say they never gave up, never surrendered).

If Galaxy Quest is officially greenlit to pilot and then to series, the project will be the latest movie-to-TV adaption to hit the small screen. Next season there’s CBS’ Rush Hour and Limitless, and Fox’s Minority Report, to name but a few in the pipeline.

Paramount and Amazon Studios had no comment.
DYNAMITE ANNOUNCES VAMPIRELLA #1969 CELEBRATION TO DEBUT IN NOVEMBER‏
08/27/15 @ 3:21 pm EST
Source: Dynamite | Categories: Vampirella | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce the upcoming release of Vampirella #1969, a 48-page one-shot special that celebrates over 45 years of the vampire heroine's advenutres in horror and fantasy. The over-sized issue celebrates the heady days of the character's earliest appearances with contributions from a roster of all-star writers and artists, including: Nancy Collins and Fritz Casas, Eric Trautmann and Brett Weldele, Phil Hester and Jethro Morales, Mark Rahner and Colton Worley, and David Walker and Aneke. Vampirella #1969 will debut in November and feature three covers: one by Robert Hack in retro-style dress, a cover by Jack Jadson, and a rare edition featuring Hack's artwork in black-and-white, much like the artwork of the original Vampirella magazine.

Several of the Vampirella #1969 contributors have shared their thoughts on the upcoming celebratory event:

Nancy A. Collins: "When I was asked to contribute a story to Vampirella #1969, I went back to see exactly what was going on the month the first issue of Vampirella hit the stands. As it turns out, the police were searching for the killers responsible for the Tate-LaBianca murders while America was dealing with the aftershocks, both physical and cultural, of Hurricane Camille, Woodstock, and Neil Armstrong walking on the moon. My story has classic-era Vampirella landing in a Hollywood that bears a closer resemblance to the reality of the time than what existed in her goofy/campy early adventures."

Phil Hester: "I was three years old when Vampirella debuted. It wasn't until I was thirteen that I became very, very interested in the character, especially that life-sized poster I had saved my paper route money to buy. But beyond the undeniable visual impact of Vampirella, there was always a core decency to her character that burned brightly even amid the dark, horror-oriented themes of her stories. She was always, well - good. Even though she was a vampire, and was always mixed up with creepy characters and monstrous villains, she somehow maintained this kind of purity that I found really refreshing in a culture awash with anti-heroes. I hope my story harkens back to that classic Vampirella heroism."


Eric Trautmann: "One of the things that made me most eager about contributing toVampirella #1969 was the opportunity to work more in the (pardon the pun) same vein as the Warren-era material - short, punchy, atmospheric, without the need to build a longer continuity. Adding to that the opportunity to see the script realized by an artist like Brett Weldele made this one the best Vampirella experiences I've had to date."


David F. Walker: "I first discovered Vampirella back in the 1970s, when it was a magazine that I wasn't allowed to look at - too much sex and violence for a little kid. And so for me, Vampirella has always represented something a bit dangerous, or at least the possibility of something dangerous. Those old stories were daring and outrageous, and that's what I tried to capture when I wrote my contribution to this book."

A raven-haired heroine, Varmpiella remains - even after four-and-a-half decades of publication - one of the comic industry's leading ladies, due in no small part to Dynamite Entertainment's stewardship of the character. Since Vampirella's very healthy resurgence in 2010, Dynamite has published two volumes of a monthly series, several miniseries and one-shot specials, and crossovers with multimedia brands and comic book peers. The Vampirella franchise is a haven for writers and artists with a penchant for the macabre.
"Vampirella seems to have found a niche in the pop culture consciousness," says Collins. "People recognize her name, even now - which is interesting, when you realize she never had a cartoon show or TV series to introduce her to a mass audience (as I don't count the direct-to-video movie that came out 20 years ago). Some of it obviously has to do with her being a sex symbol, but there seems to be a genuine fondness for the character from her long-time fans that transcends that."

Vampirella #1969 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' September Previews catalog, the premiere source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, corresponding to items shipping in November 2015. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of Vampirella #1969 with their local comic book retailers. Vampirella #1969 will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.

HUMPHRIES' "CITIZEN JACK" UNLEASHES THE DEMON OF PRESIDENTIAL POLITICS WITH HORROR COMEDY
08/27/15 @ 3:15 pm EST
Source: Comic Book Resources | Categories: Image | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment




Sam Humphries is about to hatch the unthinkable: a story about presidential politics someone may actually enjoy following for the next year.

That's because the writer behind Marvel series like "The Legendary Star-Lord" is teaming with artist Tommy Patterson for "Citizen Jack," -- a November-launching Image Comics series that mixes horror and comedy with the story of Jack Northworthy, a man destined to be president thanks to the help of a hellish demon.

"This is a really fun time to be writing this," Humphries told CBR News as Facebook feeds everywhere get assaulted with the latest Onion-esque Donald Trump quote or the newest interminably boring twist in Hilary Clinton's e-mail scandal. "This series is about politics, but it's really a horror comedy for people who hate politics. It's a book that takes its frustrations out on the right targets."

CIVIL WAR PROMO ART REVEALS CAPTAIN AMERICA & IRON MAN'S TEAMS

Marvel have remained tight lipped concerning which Avengers will be siding with Captain America and which will be with Iron Man. And whilst there has been speculation concerning who's with who (with Jeremy Renner letting slip his allegiance) you can speculate no more!

Below you can check out the images (one of which we've seen before) that place War Machine, Black Widow, Black Panther and Vision on team Stark with Bucky Barnes, Sam Wilson, Hawkeye, Ant-Man and the (surprise?) addition addition of Sharon Carter on team Cap. As of yet there's no word on the likes of Spider-Man, Scarlet Witch or even Bruce Banner (who's rumored to be involved in the project) but it's definitely raised my anticipation for May of next year.

NANCY A. COLLINS TALKS VAMPIRELLA #1969

Nancy A Collins talks to Byron Brewer about her upcoming story in Vampirella #1969. Cover art by Robert Hack and Jack Jadson.

VampiF1969-Cov-A-Hack

BYRON BREWER: Nancy, as a recent reader ofVampirella, I truly think your run on this iconic character will go down in comics history as a classic. How does it feel to work on this special issue coming out in November?

NANCY COLLINS: It’s been a kick. I’m old enough that I can actually remember the year 1969 and reading the early Warren Vampirellas, so it’s been a double-shot of nostalgia for me.

BB: What can you tell us about your story in the #1969 issue?

NC: I decided to write a Vampirella story set in 1969, but incorporating more modern storytelling, as opposed to the Silver Age style used in the original comics. I also chose to utilize actual historical events that were going on when Vampirella first hit the stands—which included Woodstock, the first moon landing, and the Manson Family murders, while trying to capture a bit of the old Barbarella space opera comics, which directly inspired the creation of Vampirella. As a result, my story comes across as more Euro grindhouse than sci-fi B-movie.

BB: Was there any special inspiration for this story?



VampiF1969-Cov-B-Jadson

NC: Yes. It’s definitely a tip-of-the-hat to all the exploitation movies I absorbed in the 1970s, especially the “killer hippie cult” sub-genre that was so popular after the Tate-LaBianca murders, as well as biker films and drug-related exploitation movies like Psych Out andThe Trip.

BB: How was it working with artist Fritz Casas?

NC: Fritz is quite talented. I’ve worked with him several times, mostly on Red Sonja-related stories such as the recent Vulture’s Circle mini-series.

BB: Do you think Vampi “grew” any during your writing reign, or can such a character really ever change?

NC: I’d like to think she evolved during my tenure and became more of a three-dimensional character to readers who had previously dismissed her as nothing more than “Booberella”.

BB: What one trait of Vampirella makes her a character all these writer in this special issue love to work with?

NC: That she defies expectations.

I’m excited to finally announce.. I’M WORKING WITH MARVEL!!! If you wondered why my gallery has been dry for a while, well this is why. For the past 7 months I’ve been doing art for Marvel Comics, I can’t tell you what it is, it’s very confidential, but I can tell you it’s very exciting.Recently the workload picked up a lot with it and I’ve been able to quit my day-to-day job as a graphic designer to FINALLY take on my art full-time as a freelance artist. I have some big plans ahead so you can expect to see a lot more art from me soon. I can finally do what I love for a living, I will keep you all updated, cheers!

Well this is the kind of thing he gets up to…
