DYNAMITE TELLS CREATIVE TEAM FOR ALL-NEW SHAFT SERIES‏
09/16/14 @ 7:23 pm EST
Source: Dynamite | Categories: Dynamite | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Dynamite Entertainment is proud to announce the signing of writer David F. Walker and artist Bilquis Evely to its upcoming Shaftcomic 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 series The 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 book Reflections on Blaxploitation: Actors and Directors Speak. His work in comics includes the series Number 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 Savageminiseries. Her other works include The Shadow / Green Hornet: Dark Nightscrossover 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 Bilquis Evely's impressive artistic skills, and we have all the makings of an explosive comic for Shaftfans 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.

BUNN LAUNCHES ALL-NEW ARMY OF DARKNESS SERIES

Source: Dynamite | Categories: Army Of Darkess | 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 hte 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.

RUMORS OF AN OBI WAN KENOBI STAND ALONE FILM
09/15/14 @ 7:58 pm EST
Source: Bleeding Cool | Categories: Star Wars | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


From the website MakingStarWars.Net (via Bleeding Cool), comes a rumor from what the site, er uh, sights as a “source” saying that a Kenobi stand-alone movie is in the works:

“Obi-Wan Kenobi – I’ve heard from quite a few people now that an Obi-Wan Kenobi movie is in the works. For the spin-off movies they were initially going to stay away from any Jedi or Sith characters. But I’m hearing now that because of the popularity of Obi-Wan (fans recently voting for him on the official website etc) that an art team is now working with a writer on concepts for an Obi-Wan movie.”

Only a rumor now, mind you. But Disney said there would be a movie a year from the franchise, so …
EVERYONE NEEDS A SUPERHERO: RUNNING FOR THE CHILDREN IN KENTUCKY

Every child needs a hero, but abused children need superheroes!

On September 20, superheroes of all ages will gather at Coldstream Park in Lexington, KY, for a 5K, kids run and lots of special activities as a fundraiser to help the abused children of the Bluegrass.

This is not your typical 5K. There will be hidden superhero figurines along the course that can be redeemed at the finish for special prizes. All children 12 and under will receive custom CASA Superhero Run capes with registration.

There will also be awards for the largest groups in the following categories: friends & family, business or organization, church team, and Greek team.

There will be costume contests with 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes for the best Super Kid, Super Pet, Traditional Superhero, Original Superhero, and Super Group.

The 1K will start at 9 AM and at the conclusion of the 1K or 9:15 AM (whichever is later) the 5K will begin.

CASA is a group of community volunteers trained to step into courtrooms on behalf of the children: Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers.

In 1986 Don Paris, then a District Court Judge, attended the National Judicial College in Reno, Nevada. There he participated in a workshop on CASA. He embraced the concept and returned to Lexington determined to develop a program. Working with Sue Timmons, Dependency Coordinator for Juvenile Court Services, the two developed the CASA Project of Lexington.

On February 15, 1990 the CASA Project adopted the Friend of Court Model. In this model the judge utilizes the CASA as an impartial observer to serve as the eyes and ears of the court. CASA of Lexington operated solely as a project of Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government’s Department of Social Services until May 2003, when the program incorporated and became a non-profit organization.

The program continues its relationship with the Lexington Urban County Government, while the non-profit status enables it to seek grants, tax-deductible donations, and other forms of support. The program is currently funded by grants, donations, fundraising, and continued support from local government, making it a unique public-private partnership.

Currently, CASA of Lexington has 57 volunteers serving 139 children in Fayette County.

GUINNESS NAMES WORLD'S LARGEST COMIC COLLECTION

The 2015 edition of theGuinness Book of World Records names Bob Bretall of Mission Viejo, California as the owner of the world’s Largest Collection of Comic Books, Bretall announced on his blog. At the time he submitted his collection (May 1), he had 94,268 individual comics, which he explained does not include any duplicates. Each comic was purchased as an individual issue; there were no bulk buys.

Bretall distinguishes his collection from retailer/dealer inventory, and says he’s read 90-95% of the comics he owns. He declined to value any of his comics.

"I do not like to emphasize the moneteray aspects of collecting comics," he explained. "Too many stories about comics collecting focus on how many $$ everything is worth instead of the great stories and characters."




SHERIFF ATTACKS 'SOUL EATER,' SAYS CAUSED ARSON ATTACK

A Florida sheriff has attacked the manga Soul Eater as being a cause of an arson attack in which a 14-year-old girl set fire to the garage of her home while her mother and brother were sleeping inside, then ran away.

They both escaped safely, but Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco, in remarks transcribed by the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund, tied the arson to the Soul Eater manga and Slender Man, an Internet meme that’s the subject of online fiction and drawings.

"I understand there’s a First Amendment and we defend the Constitution, I believe in it," Nocco said. "However, when there’s times when they know they’re putting things up there and their targeted audience, you know, they’re absolutely manipulating their brain, causing them to do things, you know, such as try to set, you know, kill people, harm them, and this girl’s situation, you know, it leads to her trying to burn her family, kill her family? ..."
