BUNN LAUNCHES ALL-NEW ARMY OF DARKNESS (AND ASH WILLIAMS) INTO OUTER SPACE!
09/22/14 @ 4:01 pm EST
Source: Dynamite | Categories: Army of Darkness | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Dynamite Entertainment proudly announces that its flagship title and longest-running comic book series, Army of Darkness, will launch with a brand new #1 issue in December. Cullen Bunn, the celebrated writer of Deadpool, will take iconic horror hero Ash Williams somewhere he has never been before: outer space. Longtime franchise fans are invited to strap themselves in for the bold new direction, in a series featuring interior artwork byArmy of Darkness staple Larry Watts, as well as cover artwork by industry heavyweights, including Gabriel Hardman, Tim Seeley, Art Adams, Walter Flanagan, and Jay Shaw.

Ash Williams, the hero of horror franchise Army of Darkness and reluctant "Chosen One" in the war against demons, has encountered so many strange happenings over the years, but nothing could have prepared him for his latest misadventure. Catapulted into the depths of space, Ash must confront the Deadites in a place where no one can hear his screams... or his chainsaw... or his boomstick! What do the forces of the evil dead want with the International Space Station... and can our square-jawed protagonist prevent Armageddon?

"Ash is kind of the ultimate screwball knucklehead, and he really has no business being the 'Chosen One' in the battle against ultimate darkness. That's what makes him such a compelling underdog," says Bunn, whose new Army of Darkness series follows on the heels of his contribution to November's Army of Darkness #1992.1 one-shot special. "With this new series, we're taking the 'fish out of water' storyline to the next level, because not only is Ash fighting the Deadites, he's doing so in the depths of space! With such a strange set-up, it might be easy to think that this is a big departure from what we've seen before, but my goal has been to make this 'feel' very much like it belongs in the same family as the source material, even though the setting is so vastly different."

Cullen Bunn is a freelance writer perhaps best known for Marvel Comics' popular Deadpool andMagneto series, as well as the Oni Press series The Damned and The Sixth Gun. He is also a short story writer and novelist; his major publications outside of the comic book sphere includeCrooked Hills and Creeping Stones & Other Stories. He has been nominated for the Bram Stoker Award (2012), the Eisner Award (2012), and the Ghastly Awards (2011), and is the winner of Broken Frontier's "Best Writer Independent" Award (2011).

Army of Darkness is a 1992 fantasy/comedy film with strong horror elements starring Bruce Campbell (Burn Notice) and Embeth Davidtz, the third installment in a trilogy featuring reluctant hero Ash Williams. Directed by Sam Raimi (Spider-Man), the film saw its tough-as-nails, wise-cracking protagonist transported from the modern era to the Dark Ages in his continuing war against demonic evil. Army of Darkness generated a dedicated fan following for its premise and lead actor.

"Cullen Bunn has been tearing up the comic book universe with his work on Deadpool -- an offbeat, unpredictable explosion of mirth and mayhem -- and it's just that sort of frenetic storytelling that makes Cullen the perfect fit for the Army of Darkness world," says Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher. "Larry Watts is the icing on the cake, because his comic and horror sensibilities are just right to bring Cullen's script to life. We're taking Ash to the stars on his biggest adventure yet, and you'll never believe what happens next."

Army of Darkness #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' October Previews catalog, the premiere source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in December. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of Army of Darkness #1 with their local comic book retailers. Army of Darkness will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.

DYNAMITE ANNOUNCES CREATIVE TEAM FOR ALL-NEW SHAFT COMIC BOOK SERIES
09/22/14 @ 3:52 pm EST

Shaft01 Cov A Cowan Walker and Evely announced as creative team on Dynamites SHAFTShaft01 Cov C OemingB Walker and Evely announced as creative team on Dynamites SHAFT Shaft01 Cov F SubGreen Walker and Evely announced as creative team on Dynamites SHAFT Shaft01 Cov B Francavilla Walker and Evely announced as creative team on Dynamites SHAFT Shaft01 Cov E Haley Walker and Evely announced as creative team on Dynamites SHAFT

Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce the signing of writer David F. Walker and artist Bilquis Evely to its upcoming Shaft comic book, based on the hard-hitting detective created by novelist Ernest Tidyman and popularized in films featuring Richard Roundtree and Samuel L. Jackson. Slated for release in December, Shaft #1 celebrates the 45th anniversary of an American icon with a wealth of cover art options by industry talents including Francesco Francavilla, Michael Avon Oeming, Ulises Farinas, Matt Haley, Sanford Greene, and a landmark collaboration between Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz.

John Shaft, described as a "tough, take-no-guff detective" and "private dick that's a sex machine to all the chicks" in composer/singer Isaac Hayes' Oscar-winning Theme from Shaft, has gone toe-to-toe with organized crime bosses, stood up to the cops, squared off against kidnappers, and foiled assassination attempts in his novel and film appearances. But who was John Shaft before he became the hardboiled investigator with a reputation as big as New York City itself? For the first time ever, the detective's origins are explored, courtesy of the new series by Dynamite Entertainment.

"Working on Shaft, one of the most iconic characters in pop culture, is a dream come true," says David F. Walker. "I've been a fan of the character since I was a kid, and especially love him in his original iteration, as created by author Ernest Tidyman. My take on Shaft is steeped in Tidyman's work, and builds on the world created in the original novels. I'm exploring who he is as a man, as a private detective, and as a cold-blooded killer. This John Shaft is much grittier, more badass, with a complexity never seen in the films. The name may be familiar, and some aspects of the character may be recognizable, but at the end of the day, he will be something new and exciting - especially in the world of comics. This is Shaft the way Shaft was meant to be."

David F. Walker is an award-winning journalist, filmmaker, and author of the Young Adult seriesThe Adventures of Darius Logan. His publication BadAzz MoFo became internationally known as the indispensable resource guide to black films of the 1970s, and he is co-author of the bookReflections on Blaxploitation: Actors and Directors Speak. His work in comics includes the seriesNumber 13 (Dark Horse Comics), The Army of Dr. Moreau (Monkeybrain Comics), and The Supernals Experiment (Canon Comics).

Bilquis Evely is a rising star on Dynamite's roster of talented artists. Recently she worked alongside writer Chris Roberson on the critically acclaimed Doc Savage miniseries. Her other works include The Shadow / Green Hornet: Dark Nights crossover event with writer Michael Uslan,The Shadow Annual #1, and Miss Fury. Evely's experience with Dynamite's pulp heroes has made her the perfect fit for the mean streets of 1970's New York City in Shaft.

"The response by the media and fans over the announcement of a Shaft comic book series was nothing short of electric," says Nick Barrucci, Publisher and CEO of Dynamite Entertainment. "Frankly, there's no one better suited to take the reins on this project than David F. Walker, whose vast knowledge of and appreciation for the genre have been welcome and invaluable in our launch of the Shaft series. Combining his energetic take on this superbad private detective with Bliquis Evely's impressive artistic skills, we have all the makings of an explosive comic for Shaft fans to love."

Shaft #1 will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors' October Previews catalog, the premiere source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in December. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies of Shaft #1 with their local comic book retailers. Shaft will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.
JOSEPH MICHAEL LINSNER TALKS DAWN / VAMPIRELLA: A DYNAMITE INTERVIEW IN BLEEDING COOL
09/22/14 @ 1:26 pm EST
Source: Bleeding Cool | Categories: Dawn Vampirella | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


As we hit the third issue of Dawn / Vampirella from Dynamite Entertainment, Byron Brewer checks in with series writer and artist Joseph Michael Linsner to talk about bring two iconic female characters together for the first time.

DawnVampi03-Cov-Linsner-NotFinal

BYRON BREWER: So, we are halfway through this unique mini-series teaming your gal Dawn with Vampirella in Dawn’s first-ever crossover. Has it been a fun ride?

JOSEPH MICHAEL LINSNER: You bet. After 25 years of drawing Dawn it’s nice getting to draw her interacting with another intelligent, beautiful lady. It’s been a nice challenge as well. In order to give them separate visual identities, I’ve had to get a better handle on Dawn’s body language. You should be able to tell them apart just from simple stick figures, beyond all of the fine details that come later. This has all been great fun and it’s keeping me on my toes.

BB: Like Jim Starlin and a few others, you are a one-man creative band here on this mini. Does that make creating comics easier or harder?

JML: When you have something particular in mind, writing and drawing the whole thing makes it easier. I’ve had some great collaborators (like Jeff Eckelberry) over the years, but nothing is worse than butting heads with a creative collaborator. In the end the work always suffers and it shows in the sales. The ideas fall in the middle and don’t reach their potential. Doing the whole thing myself, writing, drawing, inking and creating color guides, is more work but ultimately more satisfying.

DawnVampi02-Cov-Linsner

BB: Have you had any difficulties jibing the world of Vampirella with that of Dawn?

JML: Not at all. Dawn has the ability to dance between worlds — she can go to Heaven, Hell and beyond. Overlapping her mythos with Vampi’s has been as easy as pie. I think both ladies are strong characters, which makes it easier. You can take them and stick them into any scenario and they’ll write themselves out of it easily.

BB: Give us your impression of each character: differences, similarities, etc.

JML: Dawn is more reserved and calculating. She is a chess player who doesn’t like to get her hands dirty. Vampirella is carnal, she craves her righteous blood. Actions first, consequences later. I never would have envisioned a Goddess and a Vampire matching up so well, but they do play nicely off of each other.

DawnVampi01-Cov-Linsner

BB: Both characters are good “storytellers,” and November’s issue has two wonderful tales. Do you like this method of storytelling?

JML: I started off doing short stories in my first series, “Cry For Dawn”. I love short stories — they give you the chance to introduce a concept, develop it and then wrap it up all in a few pages. An ongoing adventure is easy to do, like a soap opera, but a good short story is hard work. It needs to have some meat on it’s bones as well as a good payoff in the end, otherwise it feels like a waste of time for everyone.

BB: Can you give us your impression of Masodik as a villain?

JML: He’s greedy. Being a demon, greed comes naturally. Part of him can’t believe that he’s actually pulling this storyline off, kidnapping Dawn and Vampirella, but somehow he is. He has the full attention of two smart and beautiful women, and he’s loving every second of it because he’s convinced that he’s going to get everything he wants in the end. Will he? We’ll have to see.

BB: Does Joseph the Writer ever get frustrated at Joseph the Artist, or vice versa?

DawnVampi01-Cov-BaltimoreCON-REV

JML: Yes. I actually draw pretty fast, but not fast enough for Joe the Writer. I’ve got 10 million story ideas! So many graphic novels I want to get in print, but drawing them properly takes so long. And Joe The Artist gets frustrated because comics are such hard work. You have to draw everything to flesh out a scene fully. Lame details are essential to create the reality of a setting — chairs, tables, light sockets, doorknobs. I hate drawing that stuff. Joe the Artist just wants to paint girls, that’s the fun part. Luckily, Kristina Deak- Linsner is an artist as well, and an excellent Editor. She’s been instrumental in helping the artist and the writer maintain balance and keep the series on track.

BB: Hasn’t this team-up mini been a wonderful way to celebrate the special anniversaries of both lead characters?

JML: It’s been fantastic. I couldn’t dream of a finer celebration of these two iconic female characters.

The teenage dystopian drama The Maze Runner topped the weekend box office with a $32.5 million bow, easily eclipsing fellow newcomers A Walk Among the Tombstones, and This Is Where I Leave You. Together the troika of new arrivals pushed the total of the top twelve films to a 25% gain over the same frame last year when the drama Prisoners opened with $20.8 million. Debuting in 602 theaters Kevin Smith’s horror film Tusks could muster only $886,000 and debuted at #14.

The latest in a burgeoning series of teen dystopian dramas, The Maze Runner differs from its predecessors in that its hero is a boy, one of a group of teen boys stranded on island in the center of a giant maze. While The Maze Runner’s $32.5 million bow is a solid start for the $30 million film (MGM immediately announced a date for a sequel), it pales in comparison to the March opening of Divergent ($54.6 million) starring Shailene Woodley, to say nothing of the mammoth bows of The Hunger Games films ($152 million and $158 million). Obviously the teen dystopian genre is predisposed to favor female leads, and even in The Maze Runner, which has only one key female role, females made up 52% of the debut weekend audience.


Kevin Smith’s horror film Tusks, which opened in 602 theaters, could muster only $886,000 for a very poor $1,472 per venue average. This poor showing will only accelerate the trend of B-budget modern horror films going directly to VOD (and disc). With a nearly non-existent marketing campaign, the fate of Tusks was probably to be expected, but it is unfortunate nonetheless.

In 1939, a Brooklyn comic artist started a company that has since dominated print, TV and the big screen.

This summer, Martin Goodman’s Marvel Comics was elevated to another form – a live-action tour: Marvel Universe Live!

The show features heroes and villains from the Spider-Man, X-Men, Captain America, Thor and Iron Man comic books.

The Asgardian God of Thunder, Thor, shatters the Cosmic Cube, “the source of ultimate power,” and scatters its pieces across the world.

That doesn’t stop Thor’s devious brother, Loki, from trying to own the cube’s powers.

Now, Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, the Incredible Hulk, Spider-Man and Wolverine must track down the pieces before Loki does.

Along the way, they run into a few obstacles – their arch-enemies!

Marvel Universe Live! will be hitting 85 cities across the country.
