MARK RAHNER TALKS CAREER 2.0 AND THE NEW TWILIGHT ZONE: SHADOW AND SUBSTANCE
01/26/15 @ 8:16 pm EST
Source: Bleeding Cool | Categories: The Twilight Zone Shadow and Substance | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Gail Simone, writer on Red Sonja #14, talks with writer Mark Rahner about The Twilight Zone: Shadow and Substance #1, both on sale now.

TZSS01CovCShaw

GAIL SIMONE: Okay, Mark, I am excited to talk to you about this new Twilight Zone book, and I’ll explain why in just a bit. But for those readers who are not familiar with your work (and this is actually the first story of yours I have read as well), could you give a little background, how you got to be a writer, how you came to be chosen for a high profile title likeTwilight Zone?

MARK RAHNER: In that case, I say welcome to the Mark party!I’ve been doing comics since around 2009. I came from Career 1.0 as a newspaper reporter and critic – largely at The Seattle Times – and began Career 2.0 with my creator-owned zombie-western, Rotten, from Moonstone Books. So doing the math, I’ve made my living as a writer for 20 years and the last six of those have been much more fun. You can find out – and read – a bunch more by and about me at www.markrahner.com.As far as doing Twilight Zone, you could say I “proved in” with a lot of previous Dynamite work, as well as being an obsessive, lifelong TZ and Rod Serling devotee – and letting our authority-figure editors know it.

TZSS01CovBFrancavilla

GS: Here’s the thing about myself and The Twilight Zone. I’m a fan. I mean, hardcore. I watch the series over and over, I even watch the color version with Forrest Whitaker. I have a stack of the prose collections, I have every issue of Carol Serling’s Twilight Zonemagazine. I’ve read and seen many, many attempts to nail that voice, that feeling of unease, and most of the time, they never quite get it. But I literally could tell from your first narration that you had utterly nailed it. I heard Rod Serling’s voice as I was reading, which is no small accomplishment. So, I have to ask, were you a fan previously? What went into getting the tone so tight?

MR: That means a lot to me, especially coming from a fellow Twilight Zone cultist. I’ve said from the time I started writing my previous TZ volumes – the 2014 Annual and Lost Tales– that that was my goal. So I hope you and the other readers will check those out, too.We’re the same on the hardcore front. The original show is gospel to me. I’m very familiar with Serling’s life. I read all the prose collections when I was a kid, have all those magazines, Night Gallery, Serling’s previous live TV work, interviews, biographies … you get the idea. It was in my veins at an early age, and I’ve been getting continuous infusions.

TZSS01CovDSubLau

GS: You’ve written some beloved cult icons before, in Dejah Thoris and the Avenger, for example. But this is The Twilight Zone. If you get it wrong, it seems like writers all over the world would hate you forever. (smiles) I know something about the pressure of getting fan favorites right. Did you have any concern about this story, keeping up with the standards not just of the show, but the importance it had in people’s memories?

MR: There’s no pressure greater than the prospect of hating myself if I screw up something that’s so important to me. But my career 1.0 was good schooling in performing under the greatest of pressures, and on deadlines.My main concern with “Stumbling Distance” was that it’s more personal than I’ve gotten in comics. Writing those long-established characters like Dejah Thoris and The Avenger– whom I also love – doesn’t lend itself to that so easily. But Serling went deep, and writing is risk.As far as people’s expectations, I want to exceed them. At least that’s what I strive for. I’m a compulsive researcher with a knack for getting the tones of things, but I also have no interest in inbred fan fiction or recycling catchphrases like “Submitted for your approval.” My stories are meant to be completely faithful, but still new and raw and experimental and angry.

GS: Tell me a little bit about your story, why did you choose to tell a story of a writer confronting his demons? This was a favorite theme of many TZ writers, obviously, but what made you go to that place?

TZSS01CovAVilanova

MR: The story had been percolating with me for a while. What would you say to your younger self – especially at a crucial moment? After you’d grown up, become civilized like a human, gained some perspective on what you’d lived through. Would you want to protect a child from the bad parts of what made you who you are?I rewatched “Walking Distance” on Blu-ray recently, and it nearly brought me to tears. Beautiful. One of the landmark Twilight Zone stories, and it features one of Serling’s most prominent obsessions: nostalgia for his childhood and hometown. So here’s my own inverted version of that, with a vaguely familiar feel, but it goes down a whole different path. I don’t want to retell or update the old stories. I’ve got plenty of my own.

GS: And finally, can you break down for us what’s coming up? I have to say, I’m down. I was very pleasantly drawn into this story and I will be following every issue. So what can you tell us about your future issues?

MR: Glad to hear it! The next one is more science-fiction, about a prisoner in an overly comfortable containment facility run by giant aliens. Then some weird phobia-suspense from my recurring nightmare about waking up on a mattress on the pinnacle of a skyscraper swaying in the wind.These are meant to feel like they could be episodes, yet still contemporary. I want you to feel like you’re in good hands. But hands that’ll give you a brisk shake.

Premier art comics publisher Nobrow has taken a major step today into engagement with digital media, introducing their iPad app for Nobrow titles. The move wasn’t exactly a foregone conclusion.

Nobrow will be piloting and demonstrating the app coming up at Angouleme and spreading the word about the digital options now available for its titles. The app has features such as “page view”, “panel view” and even “layers” that may allow you to read the comic in its non-color and even roughs state, making for an “enriched” experience of reading beyond the finished product.

AN APE BIKER GANG ROARS INTO TOWN IN MARCH’S THE HUMANS
01/26/15 @ 7:55 pm EST
Source: Image | Categories: Image | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Bakersfield, California, 1970: The Humans (who happen to be apes) are the baddest biker gang of all. They deal out beatings, cook drugs, party endlessly, and struggle to keep their turf and status amongst the numerous outlaws, rival gangs, and bonafide killers — all of whom are trying to take their spot at the top of the heap. And then a member of the gang long thought dead returns… haunted by memories of hell on earth. Johnny is back in the fold in THE HUMANS, VOLUME 1 from Image Comics in March — but is his head where it needs to be to ride with The Humans again?

Writer Keenan Marshall Keller (Galactic Breakdown) and artist Tom Neely (Henry and Glenn Forever) team up on a high-octane, no-holds-barred, ape-biker-gang chopper ride into ‘70s exploitation genre bliss as Bobby, Johnny, and all the Humans fly down the road to oblivion on a ride filled with chains, sex, leather, denim, hair, blood, bananas, and chrome.

“I just love me some biker flicks and exploitation/genre in all forms,” said Keller. “It wasn’t like I was trying to do an ape project and settled on them being bikers… The Humans were bikers from the start. It’s my love affair with the fringe, with outlaws and no-good-doer’s and made me focus on biker culture.”

Neely, whose art captures the energy and abandon of The Humans’ life on the road, has relished the chance to draw full-time. “I get up and draw monkeys and motorcycles all day and it’s the best,” he said. “It’s also really great collaborating with another artist – Kristina Collantes is doing the coloring and I love to see how she transforms my pages. I love my black and white drawings for this book, but they really don’t come to life to feel like a real comic book until Kristina’s colors complete the picture.”

THE HUMANS, VOLUME 1 will be in comic book stores on March 11 and in bookstores on March 25. It is specially priced at just $9.99 and is available for pre-order now.

DAVID TENNANT JOINS MARVEL'S A.K.A. JESSICA JONES FOR NETFLIX

Marvel and Netflix are proud to announce that David Tennant will star as the villainous Kilgrave in "Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones," an all-new 13-episode series premiering on Netflix in 2015 following "Marvel's Daredevil."

An enigmatic figure from Jessica’s past, Kilgrave’s reappearance will send shockwaves through the former super hero’s world.

Tennant will star opposite Krysten Ritter and Mike Colter, who will play Jessica Jones and Luke Cage in “Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones.” The series was developed by Executive Producer/Showrunner Melissa Rosenberg.

“I'm so honored and excited by the prospect of David inhabiting this multifaceted character,” said Rosenberg. “He can deliver the most heart-wrenching moment to the driest of lines, and all points in between. He'll make Kilgrave a truly original villain."

“Anyone familiar with David's work knows he brings an incredible level of dedication to any role he inhabits, a level we knew we would need from the man playing Kilgrave,” said Jeph Loeb, Executive Producer/Marvel’s Head of Television. “While most know him for his roles as a hero, we can’t wait to unleash a whole new side of this talented actor.”

Tennant rose to international fame as the Tenth Doctor in the BBC hit series “Doctor Who,” and most recently starred in “Broadchurch” and its American adaptation, “Gracepoint.”

After a tragic ending to her short-lived super hero stint, Jessica Jones is rebuilding her personal life and career as a detective who gets pulled into cases involving people with extraordinary abilities in New York City.

"Marvel's A.K.A. Jessica Jones" is produced by Marvel Television in association with ABC Studios for Netflix.
