MARVEL ENTERTAINMENT & ABC STUDIOS ANNOUNCE ALL-NEW “CASTLE” HARDCOVER GRAPHIC NOVEL

Source: Marvel | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment

Sequel To New York Times Best-Selling Original Graphic Novel Based on ABC Primetime Hit Series Arrives October 2012

Marvel Entertainment and ABC Studios are proud to announce Castle: Richard Castle’s Storm Season, an all-new hardcover graphic novel inspired by the popular “Castle” television series. This 112 page hardcover, based the titular novel from noted author Richard Castle, hits comic shops, the Marvel Comics app, iBookstore, Nook Bookstore and everywhere books are sold on October 17th, 2012.

Private Investigator Derrick Storm is hired to bug the hotel suite of an African head of state, but this routine mission quickly spirals out of control when Storm overhears a woman’s terrifying scream on the wire. Plagued by the victim’s helpless cry, Storm—despite an ominous warning—investigates the truth. Soon he’ll discover an international conspiracy reaching further than he ever imagined…and perhaps the truth about Clara Strike, a CIA Agent the world thinks is dead. 

“As a comic book fan, I couldn’t be more excited about Brian and Kelly Sue bringing Derrick Storm to life once again in Storm Season” said Richard Castle.  “Storm is a character near and dear to my heart, so I wouldn’t trust him with many people, but he is in some incredibly capable hands with this team.”

This is the second “Castle” original graphic novel to be released through a collaborative effort between Marvel, ABC Studios and the producers of “Castle.” In 2011, Castle: Richard Castle’s Deadly Storm dominated sales charts and garner worldwide acclaim.

“Marvel has done an amazing job of bringing Derrick Storm to a new audience and we’re thrilled to keep the magic going with this next graphic novel.” said Andrew W. Marlowe, “Castle” creator/executive producer. “Fans can look forward to another fantastic adventure, filled with page-turning excitement. Storm Season is Richard Castle at his finest.” 

Castle: Richard Castle’s Storm Storm reunites the lauded writing duo of Brian Michael Bendis & Kelly Sue DeConnick (Richard Castle’s Deadly Storm) for their second Castle story. They’re joined by rising star artist Emanuela Lupacchino (X-Factor), whose dynamic interior artwork brings the world of Derrick Storm to life like never before. This original graphic comes wrapped in a stunning cover by acclaimed artist Dustin Weaver (S.H.I.E.L.D.).

“The Derrick Storm novels are full of action, intrigue and compelling characters—it’s no surprise that our graphic novel adaptations have taken the literary world by storm!” said Axel Alonso, Marvel Entertainment Editor in Chief. “Castle: Richard Castle’s Storm Season will be one of the most exciting graphic novels you read all year, whether you’re a longtime fan of Richard Castle or new to his exciting stories.”

“THIS ISSUE PLAYS OUT MORE LIKE A HORROR FILM” – TROY BROWNFIELD ON BLOOD QUEEN VS DRACULA #3
02/28/15 @ 7:31 pm EST
Source: Bleeding Cool | Categories: Blood Queen Vs Dracula | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Troy Brownfield based the character of the Blood Queen on one of the most prolific, real-life serial killers in history, Elizabeth Bathory. Now he’s taken that character and put her up against one of the most prolific killers in literature, Count Dracula. Byron Brewer chatted with Brownfield about the third issue in this Vs. series for Dynamite Entertainment Cover art by Jay Anacleto and Fabiano Neves.Dynamite May 2015 Interview: Troy Brownfield @ Blood Queen vs. Dracula #3

BQvsDrac03CovAAnacleto

BYRON BREWER: In May, Troy, we are at #3, the penultimate issue in this miniseries. What can we look forward to by way of excitement to prepare for our journey’s end?

TROY BROWNFIELD: This issue plays out more like a horror film. After turning two of Elizabeth’s students in the previous issue, Dracula’s back for revenge, and of course, blood. It’s a bit of a twist on “something’s haunting the castle” kind of stories with Elizabeth as our extremely capable “Final Girl”.

BB: Drac “lays siege to the Blood Queen’s castle” this issue? Ouch! Difficult scene to write, sir?

TB: Not really, because I had such a great time with it. There’s a sequence on the castle stairs in partial darkness that was my favorite thing to put together for the issue. I’m really looking forward to seeing how the excellent team of Kewber Baal, Kirsty Swan and Marshall Dillon makes it all look. They are incredible talents and half of the fun is seeing how they interpret the ideas.

BB: A little bat told me Elizabeth may have a surprise for the Lord of the Undead as he tries to get her to join his unholy army. Any non-spoilery hints? (smile)

TB: I won’t say much, except that you can NEVER count the Blood Queen out. If you look back to her previous series, she was responsible for outwitting and defeating a number of seemingly stronger opponents. She vanquished her own mentor, she handily took down the king’s wizard, and in the interim, she won herself a kingdom. She does not treat opposition lightly. Even if that opposition is the Lord of Vampires.

BB: You seem to love these period-shrouded sagas. How much time do you put into your research?

BQvsDrac03CovBSubNeves

TB: Can I just say “a lot”? (laughs) It’s important to me as both a writer AND a reader to get things right, or as close to right as I can. Here’s an example: I was a teenager in the 1980s, and more recent films that take place in the ’80s frequently bug me because they act as if “The 80s” all happened at the same time. It’s not true; there were phases and movements in culture. If you do a scene in 1982, you can’t have The Pixies on the radio, for example; they didn’t form until ’86. And so on. With this, Kewber and I were sensitive to era-appropriate armor and weaponry. Like the cannon in #1; I was so happy to find that that monster fit the timeline.

BB: How has it been working on this with artist Kewber Baal?

TB: He’s okay. (laughs) Kewber is great. He’s very focused on doing the best possible job. He’s always asking me about sketches and finished pages; he wants me to see everything as it happens to make sure that he’s realizing what I “saw” as writer and to make sure that there isn’t anything that he needs to change, etc. He excels at the action and suspense.

BB: Will, as with the end of her last mini, the saga of the Blood Queen continue elsewhere? If so, where and when?

TB: We can’t say for certain at this point, but if Dynamite wants to have me do moreBlood Queen, I know EXACTLY what we would do next.

For many, stars of professional sports are the closest things to real life superheroes. They’re bigger, stronger, and faster than seems humanly possible. They’re able to perform feats beyond the capabilities of your average individual, jumping and twisting and barreling through opponents.

But just imagine: If the stars of the NFL really were superheroes of comic book lore, who would be whom? The folks at NFL Memes went and matched up the biggest names in football with the biggest characters in comics to answer that question with these incredible mashup renditions. Some are obvious, like Calvin Johnson as Megatron and Cam Newton as Superman, but others are pretty spot on. There’s Odell Beckham Jr. as Spider-Man, Peyton Manning as Iron Man, Rob Gronkowski as Thor, and – perhaps best of all – Andrew Luck as the Beast.
RED SONJA FILM GETS NEW SCREENWRITER

A new Red Sonja film has been in the works for quite some time now. It once had Robert Rodriguez (Sin City) attached to direct as a potential vehicle for his then-girlfriend Rose McGowan. At another point writer / director Doug Aarniokoski was working on it… but the project set up with Nu Image /Millennium Films just hasn’t moved forward much.

Word now is that Christopher Cosmos has been brought on as screenwriter. Cosmos is a former VP of the managment-production company Benderspinkwho left to pursue screenwriting. He sold his first script, The Fall, a post-apocalyptic thriller in 2012.

Red Sonja was created by Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith, basing her on the Robert E. Howard character of Red Sonya of Rogatino from the 1934 short story Shadow Of The Vulture. She first appeared in Conan The Barbarian #23 in 1973 for Marvel Comicsand eventually lead to the 1985 film starring Brigitte Nielson.

The character’s popularity waned for a while until around 2005 when Dynamite Entertainment secured the rights from Red Sonja LLC to publish new comics about the heroine. Dynamite has continued to publish the character for 10 years including the current on-going series by Gail Simone and Walter Geovani as well as including her in their newest event series Swords of Sorrow.

The Nain Rogue, as the “Steward of Straits”, was responsible for keeping harmony and balance in the natural world but when Antoine de Mothe Cadillac and French settlers arrived in the 1600s, a quarrel began and soon this turned into an angry brawl. It is said that as The Nain Rouge was chased away, a curse was flung from its lips onto the entire region of Detroit. The curse, it is rumored, befalls anyone who creates evil of their own will, and this will empower the Nain Rouge with greater strength throughout the centuries. And during the course of these centuries it has appeared to unsuspecting residences just prior to tragedy or misery befalling the person or area…

NOELLE STEVENSON REVIVES MARVEL'S "RUNAWAYS" DURING "SECRET WARS"
02/28/15 @ 8:51 am EST
Source: Comic Book Resources | Categories: Marvel | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment



When you're an adolescent, overbearing parents and teachers can seem like agents of evil. If you're a teen in the Marvel Universe, there is a distinct possibility that the authority figures keeping you down are literally supervillains. Writer Brian K. Vaughan and artist Adrian Alphonaperfectly demonstrated this premise with their 2003 series "Runaways", which introduced a team of all-new teen heroes and followed them as they went on the run from their supervillain parents.

The members of the Runaways became fan favorite characters upon their introduction and have starred in multiple volumes of their own self-titled series as well as being featured in books like"Avengers Arena" and "Avengers Undercover." Yet there hasn't been a "Runaways" series at Marvel since 2009 -- though that's about to change.

This May, the Marvel Universe as we know it will be no more with the onset of "Secret Wars."The event finds the remnants of the multiverse assembled into one patchwork planet calledBattleworld, but that doesn't mean the rebellious spirit of young heroes like the Runaways will be gone. This June, writer Noelle Stevenson ("Lumberjanes") and artist Sanford Greene ("Uncanny Avengers") will introduce a new incarnation of Marvel's defiant band of teen heroes with a new "Runaways" series set on Battleworld.

CATWOMAN WRITER CONFIRMS SELINA KYLE IS BISEXUAL
02/28/15 @ 8:37 am EST
Source: Vanity Fair | Categories: Catwoman | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


There was some speculation following 2012’s Dark Knight Rises that Selina Kyle, the Catwoman character played impeccably by Anne Hathaway, might be attracted to women. Christopher Nolan’s film depicted the villainess as using her sexuality to prey on and manipulate males, Bruce Wayne among them. The most tenderness she showed, it seemed, was directed towards her female flatmate, played byJuno Temple. And now, three years after those sexually confusing undertones, currentCatwoman writer Genevieve Valentine has confirmed that Kyle—who first surfaced in a 1940s Batman issue, and has had many a romantic encounter with the caped crusader—is indeed bisexual.

In the newest issue of Catwoman, Kyle, who has bequeathed her iconic cat suit to a character named Eiko Hasigawa, is seen kissing her Catwoman successor. (Let’s not even delve into the psychological significance of Catwoman kissing Catwoman.) In a blog postpublished today, Valentine writes that confirming Kyle’s bisexuality had been a goal of hers.

“When I was first plotting out what I expected to be a six-issue arc, there were a few emotional beats I considered indispensable,” Valentine said of her work on the series, which began in October. “[O]ne was establishing Selina as canon bisexual . . . She’s flirted around it—often quite literally—for years now; for me, this wasn’t a revelation so much as a confirmation. And as [editor] Mark Doyle and I were first hashing out the relationships in this arc, Eiko seemed like the right person: intelligent, driven, in that uncanny valley of Almost Catwoman, and knows enough about Selina that their honesty has become something of a shelter in a situation that’s getting increasingly dishonest for everybody involved. The more we talked about it, the more it was something I wanted to make happen.”

Kyle, however, is not the first Catwoman to reveal herself as not being heterosexual. Kyle’s protégé Holly Robinson, who once wore the iconic cowl, is gay, and even earned Catwomana GLAAD Media Award for its portrayal of Robinson as an openly homosexual character.
