PRAISE FOR THE SHADOW #1!

Dynamite Entertainment once again brings a classic pulp hero back to comic shops with this brand new series. I have to admit I have a rather limited exposure to The Shadow as a character beyond the few issues I read of Howard Chaykin’s series years ago at DC Comics. I come into this new series from Garth Ennis and Aaron Campbell wide-eyed and curious to really get to know who The Shadow is and the world that he operates within.

Ennis wastes no time in opening this issue with a clear understanding to what the world has been through leading up to the present day of this series. Times have definitely been gruesome and troubling to say the least, and Ennis shows how The Shadow has placed himself in all of it. The opening narration, or internal monologue, from The Shadow shows the reader what his mindset is like against these evil forces in this world and then drops readers right in the middle of one of The Shadow’s missions.

The pacing of the issue is good and does not over complicate anything, but gives the reader just enough information about these characters to help them move along to the next panel, page, and scene. The more interesting character of this issue is not The Shadow himself, but more his true identity – Lamont Cranston, who is arrogant in a way that makes him partial a jerk but confident in his surroundings. The conversations Cranston has with various characters in this issue as himself are strong and provide an interesting look at his character in contrast to The Shadow.

The art in this issue by Aaron Campbell, Carlos Lopez, and Rob Steen is strong and sets a strong mood and expresses the time period well. The art never falters from the first to the last page remaining strong. Dynamite has a knack of putting great talent on their books and the work of Campbell, Lopez, and Steen prove that.

Readers will not be able to help themselves by getting pulled into this world of The Shadow. Dynamite has taken a number of iconic pulp characters and made them come alive again for an all new audience as well as those of us who have enjoyed them in the past. The Shadow is a book I will easily recommend to everyone I meet.

DC TO RUN ADS ON THE SAME PAGES AS THE COMICS

It’s something I mostly recall from the 1970s, but it happened for a while. Comic companies choosing to run advertising on the same page as they’d run the story. Like this.

Top April 1954bullwhip

It wasn’t popular, was seen as a bit crass, even for comic books, and it eventually went away.

Until now.

Bleeding Cool is reporting that DC Comics are planning to run half page double spread ads in their print comics soon. As a result, creators have been told to draft their story breaking in mind that one page will be split into two for the print comic – but also that it will be recombined for the collected edition.

We have all become advert-avoiders to some degree and it’s natural for a comic book reader to flip past an ad. But when it is on the same page that you are reading on, this becomes harder so the thought is, the ad will be more effective. (Source: Bleeding Cool)

Dynamic Forces will offer a wide selection of products featuring autographed limited editions and hand-drawn sketches from the highest caliber of comic book creators. Their products range from all-time classics that celebrate milestone anniversaries to the hottest titles of this very year. The dedicated Dynamic Forces landing page at EVINE Live’s website is located at http://bit.ly/1IM0H8u, displaying their full assortment of collectible offerings.

Jae Lee’s participation in the television special will allow audiences a rare glimpse of a master comic storyteller in-process. Lee, a Korean-American artist with over twenty years’ experience in comic book illustration, has worked on dozens of high-profile projects, including Namor the Sub-Mariner, The Dark Tower: Gunslinger Born, Hellshock, The Inhumans, Batman: Jekyll & Hyde, Batman/Superman, and Before Watchmen: Ozymandias. His work on The Inhumans earned him the coveted Eisner Award, the highest honor in the comic book industry.While Dynamic Forces will offer numerous items on Tuesday morning’s airing, they proudly share a few spotlighted items in advance, including:

Invaders Now! #1 Dynamic Forces Variant, Featuring Silver Signature by Artist John Romita

The greatest super heroes of World War II blaze into action, this time in the modern world. For the first time in decades, the original Invaders are alive and active at the same time, but a mysterious force has drawn them all together. This special #1 issue features fan-favorite characters Captain America, the Sub-Mariner, the original Human Torch, Toro, the Golden Age Vision, Spitfire, and Union Jack. John Romita, the masterful comic book artist who brought so many of Marvel Comics’ greatest heroes to four-color life, signs this exclusive variant edition — only available from Dynamic Forces — as part of their limited Silver Elite Signature program.

Harley Quinn Invades Comic-Con #1, Signed by Inker Robert Campanella

Harley Quinn — the beloved Joker fanatic that stole fan hearts in Batman: The Animated Series and is set to appear in the upcoming Suicide Squad blockbuster film, takes over San Diego Comic-Con in this over-the-top issue. Amid the long lines and rambunctious crowds, she strives to get her own comic book published. Robert Campanella, a contributing artist to dozens upon dozens of Marvel and DC Comics, signs this fun-filled issue, in which he served as an inker.

The Mighty Thor #1, Signed by Matt Fraction

A cornerstone of the Marvel comic book universe and major player in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (and the film, Avengers: Age of Ultron), Thor returned to comics in this #1 launch issue, teaming up with fellow warrior Sif on a mission deep into the heart of the fractured World Tree to reclaim an artifact from beyond time and space… an item linked to the Silver Surfer and his dreaded master, Galactus the World-Eater. Matt Fraction — one of the hottest writers in comics today — not only wrote this issue, but provided his autograph as a seal of approval on his first issue.

Superior Spider-Man #1 Skottie Young Variant, Signed by Stan Lee (Co-Creator of Spider-Man)

Stan Lee, the industry legend and co-creator of “marvelous” characters includingSpider-Man, The Avengers, Iron Man, and Thor, autographs this special variant edition of Superior Spider-Man #1, featuring a cover illustration by wildly popular artist Skottie Young (Rocket Raccoon). When Peter Parker met his demise, an all-new Spider-Man took to the skies of New York City… a once-fearsome foe who is better in every way. This is the must-have first chapter in the saga of revenge and redemption that shook the foundations of the Marvel Universe ever since.

The Fantastic Four #587, Signed by Stan Lee (Co-Creator of The Fantastic Four)

In a move that shocked comic fans worldwide, Marvel’s ever-popular superhero The Human Torch met his demise and died heroically in this very issue. This concluded the “Three” storyline that captivated the mainstream media and industry press alike. This issue — and the death of such a renowned character from the First Family of Comics — signaled the beginning of major changes for the Marvel Universe as the Fantastic Four lost one of their founding members. To commemorate the occasion, Dynamic Forces welcomed Stan Lee, the co-creator of The Human Torch, to autograph the landmark issue, bringing a close to the story of his fiery hero.

Franken-Castle #17 Variant, Signed by Artist John Romita

As art director of Marvel Comics in the 1970’s, John Romita designed some of Marvel’s most famous and infamous characters, including the brutal vigilante known as the Punisher. “Jazzy John” signs this marvelous collector’s item, a rare variant edition from the “Franken-Castle” Punisher series.

Django/Zorro #7, Signed in Gold by Cover Artist Jae Lee

Oscar Award-winning writer/director and Django creator Quentin Tarantino teams with Eisner Award-winning comic book creator Matt Wagner to write the official Django Unchained sequel, uniting the gun-blazing Western hero with the legendary swordsman of literature, film, and comics: Zorro! Cover artist Jae Lee not only provided the instant-classic cover to this epic Western pairing, but signed the cover as part of Dynamic Forces’ Gold Elite Signature program.

Batman/Superman #1, Signed in Red by Artist Jae Lee

The legendary meeting of two iconic heroes, the Dark Knight Detective and the Man of Steel, begins with this very issue, courtesy of cover and interior artist Jae Lee. With the upcoming team-up (and face-off) between the world’s finest superheroes in the feature film Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, this issue is undoubtedly a must-have collector’s item. This rare comic comes signed in red ink by Jae Lee himself.

Masks 2 #1, Signed in Gold by Cover Artist Jae Lee

Legendary pulp heroes The Shadow, The Green Hornet, Kato, Black Terror, and many more join forces across the decades to face The Red Death, a villain who appears impossible to stop… and holds the devastating power to kill thousands of people in a matter of seconds. Jae Lee, the superstar artist of Batman/Superman and the Eisner-Award winning Inhumans, graces this cover with powerful image of these masked vigilantes — and signs the issue as part of Dynamic Forces’ Gold Elite Signature program.

Uncle Scrooge #1 Golden Nugget Edition, Signed & Remarked in Gold by Artist Ken Haeser

Scrooge McDuck, the “richest duck in the world”, has been a hero to generations of comic book and cartoon fans, thanks to the classic Uncle Scrooge comic book series and Disney’s very popular Ducktales program. This #1 launch issue of the all-new Uncle Scrooge series comes with a blank white cover, illustrated in gold ink by renowned artist Ken Haeser (The Living Corpse), capturing the wealthy waterfowl in the color he loved most.

The upcoming special marks the third time that Dynamic Forces has partnered with EVINE Live to provide rare and coveted comic book items to the network’s 88 million US homes.

REESE WITHERSPOON TO STAR IN DISNEY'S LIVE-ACTION TINKER BELL MOVIE
05/21/15 @ 7:32 pm EST
Source: Variety | Categories: MIsc | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


'Finding Dory' writer Victoria Strouse is writing the script for the project.

Reese Witherspoon may soon be spreading some fairy dust.

The actress is attached to star in and produce Tink, a live-action take on the classic Peter Pan character.

Witherspoon will produce with Bruna Papandrea, her partner at the duo’s production banner, Pacific Standard.

Victoria Strouse, who wrote the script for Pixar’s upcomingFinding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory, is penning the script for the project, which does not have a director on board and is still in development.

Details on the project's angle are being kept deep in Pixie Hollow, but insiders say it will play with the idea and the timeline of the well-known Peter Pan narrative. It is also being developed in the vein of Maleficent, Disney’s 2014 hit that starred Angelina Jolie as the evil witch from Sleeping Beauty. Like Maleficent, this Tinker Bell tale is conceived as “the story you don’t know,” and will offer a new perspective on the character.

Unlike Maleficent or some other recent Disney movies, however, Tink is being developed to be made in a more modest, mid-range budget.

Initially a minor and non-speaking character in J.M. Barrie’s Pan story, Tinker Bell has, since her appearance in Disney’s 1953 classic animated feature, become one of the symbols of Disney and is at the center of the lucrative Disney Fairies franchise.

Tink, Peter Pan's companion, has typically been portrayed as a temperamental character who can become dangerously jealous due to her unrequited love for the Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up.

Witherspoon, who has the comedy Hot Pursuit in theaters, just set up the drama Pale Blue Dot, to which she is attached as star and producer, at Fox Searchlight.

She is repped by CAA, LBI Entertainment and Hansen Jacobson.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 2 CASTING HAS ALREADY BEGUN

guardians of the galaxy

Director James Gunn held an impromptu Q&A session using Twitter’s Periscope streaming video service, and fielded questions about Marvel’s cosmic sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy 2.

Gunn revealed that casting, at least of an informal sort, has already begun, as he has been talking to a certain actor about playing a new member of the Guardians. He didn’t reveal any details about the identity of the actor or the character.

Gunn also took the opportunity to, again, touch on the matter of Star-Lord’s father. Gunn reiterated that he doesn’t care of the character of J’Son of Spartax, Peter Quill’s father in the Marvel Comics Universe, and felt that to use him in the movies would make the films too similar to Star Wars. Gunn remained tight-lipped about who would be filling in for J’Son in the movie universe.

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 opens May 5, 2017.

The 15-issue Empire of the Dead comic book series is still in the process of publication by Marvel Comics.
THE ROCK OFFICIATES SURPRISE WEDDING FOR SUPERFAN

rockwed

What can't Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson do? Last weekend at a press event for San Andreas, Johnson gave comedian and super fan Nick Mundy the surprise of a lifetime by officiating the wedding of Nick and his fiancé.

Mundy first met Johnson during an interview before Johnson's Hercules premiered. The interview was intentionally awkward as the comedian-reporter asked oddball questions about Johnson. Once Johnson found out Mundy was actually a funny guy and huge fan, he requested that Mundy attend several other events including the Furious 7 press junket.

Mundy has started planning situational jokes for each encounter with Johnson which he pitches to Johnson's team beforehand. This time around, at the San Andreas press junket, the team shut Mundy down, leaving him fairly upset. What Mundy didn't know was that his family, fiance's family, fiance, and Dwayne Johnson were all waiting downstairs to surprise Mundy.

Johnson got legally certified to wed the couple and the rest is history.

San Andreas hits theaters May 29.Take a look at the action here; https://youtu.be/J-B7UJtvlLM

Joshua Hale Fialkov, Bernard Chang and Marcelo Maiolo are launching a five-part comic in August from Jet City Comics called King. Presumably nothing to do with Dynamite’s King Features licensed line, King

Fialkov and Maiolo both worked together on I Vampire and Green Lantern Corps for DC Comics, before he walked over DC’s plans to kill off the John Stewart character. Otherwise Fialkov would have also worked with GLC artist Bernard Chang… but now he can!

King is desribed as a post-apocalyptic Conan the Barbarian as directed by Sam Raimicirca Army of Darkness.

JEFF WHEELER'S MUIRWOOD COMES TO COMICS IN AUGUST

Protected by a hired killer, Maia voyages to another realm – the cursed shores of Dahomey, where an ancient Blight has destroyed all the inhabitants.

DIVINITY #1 TO BE ALLOCATED (AGAIN) IN ADVANCE OF FIFTH PRINTING

DIVINITY_001_COVER_FIFTH

Earlier this week, Bleeding Cool reported that Valiant’s Divinity #1 was going to a fifth printing. Here’s why.

For the second time in as many months, a new printing of Divinity #1 by Matt Kindtand Trevor Hairsine has sold out at Diamond in advance of its on sale date, triggering an allocation at Diamond and the record-setting (for Valiant) fifth printing.

Just last month, the same scenario played out with the third printing, leading to the now sold-out fourth. Will you be able to find a copy on stands next week when it arrives alongside the series’ final chapter in Divinity #4?

Divinity, which reveals the origin of Valiant’s first brand new, from-scratch character to headline their own title since the publisher’s award-winning relaunch, has been burning up in both critical and collector circles since issue #1 debuted in February.

And although his debut series will be over soon, we’re told by reputable sources to expect more from the character in the coming months. Earlier this week, Valiant’s August solicitations revealed that Divinity will be returning in Imperium #7 by Joshua Dysartand Scot Eaton with more likely to follow from there… It would seem Valiant has big plans for their Soviet cosmonaut with god-like powers…

If Divinity #1 warrants a sixth printing, the series will join the rarified ranks of Ms. Marvel #1, Justice League #1, Sex Criminals #1 and only a few other titles in recent comics history. With so much heat behind it, could a proper sequel be too far behind? As they say…watch this space
