OLD-TIME RADIO AND COMICS HEROES BURST BACK ONTO THE SCENE!

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

Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? (Hint: The guy dresses up in a cape and runs around at night. And it's not Batman.)

The Shadow still knows — as do Flash Gordon, the Lone Ranger, the Green Hornet and other heroes of 1930s and '40s radio shows, pulp magazines and movie serials.

These good guys are making a comeback, though mainly in comics and feature-length movies. Next month, The Shadow receives a comics reboot courtesy of Dynamite Entertainment, which also publishes ongoing series starring Flash Gordon and Green Hornet plus a new title with pulp hero The Spider that's due in May.

On the big screen, a masked Seth Rogen stung bad guys in last year's The Green Hornet. And in The Lone Ranger, in production for release in 2013, Armie Hammer rides tall as the title cowboy with Johnny Depp as his sidekick Tonto. Baby Boomers grew up watching the Clayton Moore TV series in the '50s, although the saga began as a 1933 radio show in Detroit.

Though these characters may not be as well known as today's comic-book superheroes or the Star Wars and Harry Potter clans, they were the bee's knees for a generation that was decades away from the Internet and iPods.

Before Batman, there was the alter ego Lamont Cranston donning the shadowy mask and hat while haunting radio waves as The Shadow, voiced by Orson Welles in the late '30s.

And before Superman and Captain America there was Flash Gordon, an all-American space adventurer who tussled with planetary tyrant Ming the Merciless in sci-fi comic strips by Alex Raymond and serial films starring Buster Crabbe.

"The '20s and '30s are seen as a very romantic age, with the criminal underworld of urban America and high adventure of exotic foreign locations providing a bit of an edge," says Garth Ennis, who is writing the new Shadow comic. "The reality, I'm sure, would have been mostly a lot more mundane and occasionally quite grim."

He's crafting The Shadow as a dangerous champion of law and order with a flair for the dramatic, and he is embracing one of the vigilante's oldest and most famous traits: his habit of laughing as he consigns his enemies to their doom.

"I decided to be fairly sparing with it," Ennis says. "If he started howling every time he threw a punch or fired a shot, it would get old fast. So I decided to preserve the laugh for moments of deep, dark, extreme humor."

His take on The Shadow comic is a bloody affair, where the mysterious figure dispatches bad guys with violent aplomb. More than 70 years ago, though, audiences had to visualize with their imagination what was going on during the radio-show exploits.

The popularity of the old Shadow and Green Hornet radio shows and their ilk in their heyday is best compared to programs children flock to today, such as Hannah Montana and Dora the Explorer, says Martin Grams Jr., a radio-show historian and author.

Back then, kids and adults would read books, pulps and comics because they were a cheap form of entertainment, and radio was an even bigger medium because it was free.

Some adaptations tank

While movies measure success with box-office receipts, commercial sponsors would gauge ratings of radio shows based on the number of giveaway premiums offered during the commercial breaks — such as various Lone Ranger rings and badges. They were then used to persuade sponsors to stick around because of a large listener base.

It wasn't just kids, either. Housebound and disabled people "who couldn't go visit their local movie theater had the opportunity to enjoy action and adventure with the turn of their dial," Grams says.

"The business of pop culture was defined during the 1930s and 1940s when movie producers snatched up the screen rights to popular radio programs and produced motion pictures, serials and film shorts based on the properties."

Since then, movie studios, TV networks and comics publishers have attempted adaptations of those characters, with varying results.

The Lone Ranger TV series began in 1949, ran eight seasons and defined the character for many. Flash Gordon sped off to space with live-action and animated shows, and a 1980 film became a cult classic with Sam Jones clad in a white shirt bearing the word "Flash."

But two more recent movies, The Shadow (1994) with Alec Baldwin and the 1996 Billy Zane vehicle The Phantom (based on the comic strip from the '30s), were not exactly heroic at the box office. And Disney's new big-budget John Carter, based on the Edgar Rice Burroughs pulp sci-fi hero, has thus far tanked.

"My theory is that modern audiences have a hard time accepting un-ironic heroism unless it's presented just right," says Eric Trautmann, writer of Dynamite's Flash Gordon: Zeitgeist series. (A devotee of the era, Trautmann has a Maltese Falcon on his desk, a statue of Humphrey Bogart as Sam Spade, a Buck Rogers blaster and a replica 1930s radio.)

He concedes that pulp is difficult to write because it requires a certain innocence. Nazis show up in his series, but when they're the evil-doers du jour, modern audiences can't help but think of the Holocaust, "a sort of demise of innocence for the Western world." That makes it a lot harder to take the proceedings seriously.

'We're all geeks in a way'

"The obvious inclination is to keep things a little more self-referential and cartoony, tongue firmly in cheek," Trautmann says, "and that kind of thing really works against the story, the character, and readers' and viewers' embracing the tale."

Those characters of yesteryear, however, remain important in the history of pop-culture heroes, says comic-book artist Alex Ross, one of the creative spearheads of Dynamite's pulp series.

"Seeing how a character like The Shadow would influence every other flamboyant costumed hero in history was very interesting to me," he says. "A load of the earliest superhero fashions came from the artists swiping from Alex Raymond's Flash Gordon."

Heroic fiction draws from a lot of the same wells. Without John Carter in 1917, Trautmann feels we probably don't get Flash Gordon in 1934, a quintessentially American protagonist whose "unflappable 'can do' attitude and unshakable optimism would resonate in almost any era." Without Flash, there's no Luke Skywalker or Han Solo in Star Wars, and without that, we don't get Avatar.

"Even Star Trek owes a debt to period literature —Captain Kirk as Horatio Hornblower in space," Trautmann says. "Heroic fiction shares those archetypes and themes, so that influence is probably so ingrained now that a modern practitioner might not even be aware of what influenced the sources he or she is drawing inspiration from."

Affection for heroic pulp specifically — as with old-school sci-fi, fantasy and mystery stories — seems to be cyclical, Trautmann says. But the resurgence of these characters is also being helped by an overall nostalgia for the early- to mid-20th century, from Boardwalk Empire to Mad Men.

"It's been a rough decade or two," he says. "Looking back on what seems to be a simpler, less complicated time is certainly appealing."

Curiosity and a drive to seek knowledge are probably the main reasons people like to revisit historic pop culture, Grams says.

"We're all geeks in a way, trying to intake all the information we can on a comic-book character or movie, then digest, then recollect to friends to show how much more we know than they do."

The historian enjoys seeing kids introduced to heroes that were a seminal part of their grandparents' lives. He says it's a good bet they know tons more about The Hunger Games and Twilight than old Shadow magazine tales, and have no idea of the existence of Lone Ranger radio shows of yore.

"In my experience," Ennis says, "these characters tend to be pretty strong to begin with: They go through periods of revival, then slump due to overindulgence, then lie dormant, then undergo the next revival. But they always come back."

And, Grams notes, "the oldies are still the goodies."

VALIANT COMES TO IVERSE’S COMICSPLUS WITH COMPLETE DIGITAL COMICS LIBRARY
08/01/14 @ 7:00 pm EST
Source: Valiant | Categories: MIsc | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Leading digital comics provider iVerse Media announced today they have teamed with award-winning comic book publisher Valiant Entertainment to bring Valiant’s complete library of modern and classic content – including X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Archer & Armstrong, Shadowman, Rai, and many more – to iVerse’s ComicsPlus app and affiliated platforms. Effective immediately, iVerse will offer Valiant’s monthly comics titles day-and-date via the ComicsPlus app, and will soon host Valiant’s complete catalog of comics and collections.

To launch their newly announced partnership, iVerse is also now offering each of Valiant’s best-selling #1 issues for free on the ComicsPlus app throughout the month of August.

Established in 1989, Valiant has sold over 80 million comic books, and today its characters continue to be forged in publishing, licensing, film, video games, and beyond. Since its summer 2012 publishing relaunch, Valiant has returned to the fore as one of the most commercially and critically successful independent publishers in the industry today with an initial slate of titles that included X-O Manowar by New York Times best-selling writer Robert Venditti and Eisner Award-winning artist Cary Nord; Harbinger by New York Times best-selling writer Joshua Dysart and Harvey Award-nominated artist Khari Evans; and Archer & Armstrong by the New York Times best-selling creative team of writer Fred Van Lente and artist Clayton Henry.

After multiple Publisher of the Year awards and nominations, including a 2012 Diamond Gem Award for Publisher of the Year, Valiant ventured even farther in 2013 with the debut of its first crossover event, Harbinger Wars, and the release of Unity #1 by writer Matt Kindt and artist Doug Braithwaite – the year’s highest charting debut issue from a non-premier publisher with sales in excess of 70,000 copies. This May, Valiant followed up with “Valiant First” – an all-new line of titles led by the smash-hit ongoing series, Rai, and its biggest crossover event to date, Armor Hunters. Most recently, on the heels of 16 nominations at this year’s Harvey Awards, the publisher has announced The Valiant – a prestige format mini-series from New York Times best-selling writers Jeff Lemire and Matt Kindt with art by Eisner Award winner Paolo Rivera beginning this December.

Valiant will be the latest publisher to join the rapidly expanding offerings of the ComicsPlus app from iVerse Media.

“Valiant has been consistently producing some of the best comics in the industry since their relaunch in 2012,” said iVerse Media founder and CEO Michael Murphey. “We could not be more proud to make their remarkable catalog and amazing characters available in ComicsPlus.”

In addition to the ComicsPlus app and website, Valiant’s titles will be made available to librarians and their patrons everywhere via the ComicsPlus: Library Edition app, which makes thousands of high-quality titles accessible to school and library patrons on any device, anywhere, and at any time.

“Valiant’s number one priority is to make our characters and content available to the largest audience possible, and, via our new partnership with iVerse, we have an incredibly exciting and important new channel to continue that mission,” said Valiant Publisher Fred Pierce. “With a potential readership that’s measured in the millions, we hope to win over even more fans to some of the most critically acclaimed comic books being produced anywhere today, just as we have month in and month out in comic book stores around the world.”

Valiant titles are available now on the ComicsPlus iOS and Android apps, and via the website.

This September Stephen King’s fan-favorite Dark Tower epic returns to Marvel for an all-new beginning in THE DARK TOWER: THE DRAWING OF THE THREE – THE PRISONER #1! But first, Marvel is proud to officially unveil a brand new variant cover to the first issue by Eisner-award winning storyteller Skottie Young! Depicting the iconic Gunslinger Roland Deschain rendered in Skottie Young’s inimitable style – no Dark Tower fan should miss out on this hilarious variant cover when it hits comic shops next month!

Marvel once again teams with America’s #1 storyteller Stephen King on his dark fantasy magnum opus that has captivated fans the world over. As the saga moves to the second volume of King’s story, The Drawing of the Three, the action shifts from the dusty plains of Mid-World to the mean streets of New York City! Perfect for new and long-time fans, readers will experience the Dark Tower like never before as the rich and vibrant world of King’s tale comes to life in a whole new way!

Thought you knew the whole story? Think again! Fan-favorite writers Peter David & Robin Furth along with critically acclaimed artist Piotr Kowalski present an all-new spin on The Drawing of the Three that will keep even the most die-hard fans on their toes. As this tale of urban crime opens, fans will meet Eddie Dean – an innocent child who grows into a troubled young man with the ability to open doors to other worlds. Can he overcome his haunting addiction, family tragedy, and deadly forces that conspire to stop him from challenging the enigmatic Man in Black? Witness the story of a man on the path to an unlikely destiny and the most important journey of his life!

“This is the ‘All-New Marvel NOW’ version of The Dark Tower. We’re now refocusing our spotlight to explore the events that led to the formation of the Ka-Tet that aided the gunslinger Roland Deschain on his quest,” said editor Bill Rosemann. “But instead of encountering Eddie Dean later in his life, as you do in the novel, we zoom back to 1964 and meet him as a toddler, so while we are adapting the second novel, we’re also weaving together events in a new way that will surprise everyone who has already read the book. We’re ‘assembling the Avengers’ of the Dark Tower universe, but Robin Furth, Peter David, and Piotr Kowalski are doing so in a way that you’ve never imagined.”

ORTEGO, LAM, SCOTT GUESTS FOR MALTA COMIC CONVENTION
08/01/14 @ 6:12 pm EST
Source: Wicked Comics | Categories: MIsc | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Wicked Comics is proud to announce that internationally renowned creators Guillermo Ortego (X-Factor), and Steve Scott (Batman) as well as up and coming independent creator Mickey Lamwill be joining Yishan Li (The Clique), Rufus Dayglo (Tank Girl) and Andrew Wildman (Transformers) as guests for the Malta Comic Con (MCC) 2014 which will be held on Saturday 29thand Sunday 30th November at St. James Cavalier (all floors), Valletta, between 10am – 6pm on Saturday and 11am – 7pm on Sunday.

“There are a chosen few conventions out there that are something else, something where money-making is left aside in order to champion human interaction, but still achieve the same level. No distinction between super-hot artists and retired old-glories, no distinction between superhero pencillers and small press manga artists. It's all about the people. People talking comics, people reading comics, people making comics, people discussing comics as if they were deep philosophy.

"Avilés, in the north of Spain, was the first place where I experienced this, and Malta, was the second. And it's these kind of shows, these kind of people, that make all the long working hours, the missed weekends and holidays and the angry girlfriends/boyfriends worth our while." Ortego said.

Guillermo Ortego: A Spanish creator currently residing in London Guillermo first started inking comic books professionally after studying History at university. Also working as a freelance illustrator on the side, he rapidly moved into the American scene breaking into Marvel Comics alongside Paco Díaz Luque on titles such as Wolverine Vs. Thor, Dark Wolverine and Wolverine: Mr. X. Then off to DC Comics with Green Arrow and JLA 80 Page Giant and back to Marvel with Italian artist Emanuela Lupacchino on Peter David’s X-Factor and, after a successful year run on the book, on Brian M. Bendis and Kelly-Sue DeConnick's Castle graphic novel based on ABC's acclaimed TV show. After its release on October 2012, they started working on the second story arc for Valiant Comics’ recently re-launched Archer & Armstrong to move onto Bloodshot and the H.A.R.D. Corps on the summer of 2013.Apart from his monthly covers for Dynamite Comics with penciller Ardian Syaf, he's recently collaborated on Marvel's Infinity #06 and Original Sin #0 with Jim Cheung and DC's Justice League Dark #25-#27, Nightwing #30, Batman Eternal #13 and Grayson #02 with fellow Spaniard Mikel Janín.

Steve Scott: In his over 18 year career American creator Steve Scott has illustrated titles such as; Batman, X-Men Forever, JLA. Marvel Adventures Hulk and many more while his work has been published by DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Image, Dark Horse, London Knight Studios, Malibu Comics and several independent publishers.Steve has also worked in TV, Film, and most recently in video games. His work for television was aired in episodes of the popular TV series Smallville and ABC Family’s Kyle XY. In films, Steve illustrated the only adaptation of the 2008 Oscar winning film Batman the Dark Knight and his work was overseen and approved by director Christopher Nolan. This artwork was part of the packaging offered with the Special Blue Ray edition of Batman Begins. In that same year, George Lucas approved Steve to be the artist for Indiana Jones and the Tomb of the Gods. This series, written by Rob Williams, was very popular with Indiana Jones fans and the majority of the art from the series was purchased by Mr. Lucas himself and is now part of his permanent collection.Steve has also provided graphics for Cognito Comics for their revolutionary interactive graphic novel "Operation Ajax” and in video games he is currently providing work for "The Bane of Yoto" from Leviathan Games.His most recent work can be found in the upcoming adaptation of Neil Gaiman's, "The Graveyard Book". Steve was handpicked to be one of the few illustrators involved with this project. Additionally, he has been doing art chores on the IDW series Judge Dredd.

Mickey Lam: Mickey is a London-based illustrator who also self publishes his own comics ranging from a school teacher who fights aliens to a banana and a strawberry who become best friends.

“I’ve had the pleasure to meet both Steve Scott and Guillermo Ortego, and besides their obvious talent as creators and the high profile work they’ve been involved in they are also fine individuals whom I’m proud/honoured to call friends. This will be Ortego’s third successive appearance as a guest to our show, and that in itself is testament to his ability as a creator as well as his pleasant personality that shines through when spending time with his fans, which has ensured a strong following in Malta. I’m also convinced that like Ortego, Scott will fit right in and his friendly approach and enthusiasm will add to the fun, relaxed and exciting atmosphere prevailing at the Malta Comic Con. He will surely return to the States with a healthy Maltese fan base. The presence of up and coming independent creator Mickey Lam further highlights Wicked Comics’ commitment to welcome guests from all walks of the industry and I’m sure that along with the other guests his participation will inspire local artists to continue to develop their talents and establish the exciting Maltese comics scene further. Consequently, we would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their participation and look forward to hosting them here” said Chris Le Galle, co-founder of Wicked Comics.
