STASH MY COMICS REVIEWS THE SHADOW!

Source: Stash My Comics | Categories: The Shadow | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment

Stash My Comics has some good things to say about the debut of The Shadow:

“When you hear the word “pulp” what is the first thing that comes to mind? Maybe it’s the movie that made the word famous again, “Pulp Fiction”. You might think of something to do with trees or even orange juice. Well, you should be thinking about Dynamite Entertainment’s The Shadow.

“This character debuted around 1930 first in serialized pulp magazines and then in radio programs. A lot of people don’t realize that this is one of the most famous pulp characters of the 20th century. Besides print and radio, The Shadow has spawned 5 movies in total with the most recent being released in 1994 starring Alec Baldwin. The comic property has been passed down over the years with DC Comics doing a couple of runs in the late 70′s to 80′s and then Dark Horse buying out the rights to do their own series in the mid 90′s. Fast forward to 2011 and Dynamite Entertainment announced that they had in fact licensed The Shadow from Conde Nast. As most of you know Dynamite has done a superb job bringing a lot of these pulp properties back to life in new and interesting ways. The Shadow #1 written by Garth Ennis and drawn by Aaron Campbell is a fine example of an older property made new again.

“The story takes place in New York City sometime in the 1940′s. Our hero, clad in a black trench coat, red scarf, and fedora is going to make a stand against evil. In this case the evil is Nazi sympathizing Japanese Soldiers who are looking to board a ship against the will of the people who are on it. We don’t know exactly what is on it, but we know that The Shadow makes quick work of a number of Japanese soldiers very quickly with his dueling pistols. The action is fast paced and the Shadow is quick to let his guns do the talking. Garth Ennis does a great job sticking with the times in terms of dialogue. The heroic phrases used by the Shadow, brings us back to a more simple time in comics when the division between good guys and bad guys was more black and white than today’s shades of gray.

“What would come off as a bit campy in a modern day setting works very well in this particular setting of the 1940′s where…”

IDW Publishing has a new project in the works with sci-fi author William Gibson, the writer of cyberpunk classic "Neuromancer." Full details have yet to be released, but IDW teased the project Tuesday on Twitter -- with the unexpected and seemingly impossible release date of June 6, 1945 (with 2016 following in smaller letters).  Gibson himself provided some more insight into the project on his Twitter, saying it's a four-issue miniseries written in collaboration with actor Michael St. John Smith, and broadly described its origins as "Band of Brothers vs Blackwater."
BUSINESS AS USUAL, MOSTLY, FOR HOUSTON COMIC BOOK SHOPS DESPITE SEVERE FLOODING

After severe flooding hit Houston earlier this week, many local comic shops in the area report only slight delays and, fortunately, no major damage.

The damage "wasn't anywhere near as bad as it could have been," 8th Dimension Comics and Games manager Jeremy Bulloch told CBR News. Likewise, Third Planet manager Jim Stanley shared, "We were open our regular hours… We still did business all day."

Though most local shops reported that their places of business were fine, not all managed to come out completely unscathed. For instance, the 1960 W. location of Bedrock City Comicssuffered some minor flooding. "We are at the right angle with our store in our whole strip center that, when it rains really hard and the wind is ripping, it'll push it directly at our door, and it always finds a way under somehow," explained manager Lauro Guerra. "We were really lucky, because it was controllable. It wasn't like we got here and everything was floating everywhere."

"One thing that I can say is that we have a lot of really cool customers," Guerra added. "People were coming in that were volunteering to help clean up stuff… We have really cool people that try to help us." (Source: CBR)

HAVE A SPARE $100,000? A ‘STAR WARS: BATTLE POD’ COULD BE YOURS

For die-hard fans, this may be the time to consider what’s more important: a car, a home andpossibly food, or the Star Wars: Battle Pod arcade game. Take your time; Bandai Namco won’t begin taking orders until next month.

The price is indeed steep. According to Kotaku, the standard home version (below) of the firstStar Wars arcade game ages (15 years, maybe?) will set you back about $35,000. For the premium version (above), however, you may have to consider a second mortgage: $100,000 gets you either the Rebel pilot helmet or Darth Vader helmet exteriors, leather seats that move and react to the game, carpeting and a specially bound owner’s manual.

Each cabinet is numbered, with the owner’s name both on a plaque and on the game’s credit scroll. So, yeah, that’s for $100,000, plus shipping.

ELEKTRA MAY BE COMING TO DAREDEVIL SEASON 2

Elektra_3

A report from Comicbook.com says that two audition videos hit the web today and then were quickly deleted. The videos show two different women auditioning for the same role, which appears to be Elektra Natchios for the second season of Marvel’s Daredevil on Netflix.

The two actresses in the videos were Louisa Mignone and Shiva Kalaiselvan, both of whom have a look that might work for the character. The audition tapes included two scenes… one with her interrogating a thug and the other likely the first time Matt and Elektra meet.

Mignone Shiva

During a flashback of Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson in college there was a reference to Matt’s Greek ex-girlfriend… And we also have met Stick and saw the back of Stone. So it would make sense that the second season would feature the Hand and Elektra.

Now the question is, do they just focus on the ninjas… or do we get Bullseye? I’d like to see them hold Bullseye back until season 3.

ZDARSKY AND HENDERSON SET THE TABLE WITH NEW JUGHEAD SERIES

Hamburgers and a crown made of paper. The mysterious “S” shirt and a dog named Hot Dog. Did we mention Hamburgers? All of these things are synonymous with the greatest comic book character of all time: Jughead! This October, Archie Comics is launching a new ongoing JUGHEAD series by the unbeatable team of Chip Zdarsky and Erica Henderson!

Featuring the adventures of Archie’s hamburger-loving best friend, the new series will debut with an all new #1 issue from two of the comic book industry’s brightest stars. Zdarsky, known for his work on the hit Image series Sex Criminals, will bring his unique brand of comedy to comics’ biggest jokester.

“Jughead is the one character that I totally attempted to emulate when I was younger,” said Zdarsky. “Cool without being cool, voracious appetite, a slacker who doesn't always live up to his potential.”



JUGHEAD #1 Variant Cover by Chip Zdarsky

Joining Zdarsky on JUGHEAD will be Erica Henderson, best known for her work on Marvel’sUnbeatable Squirrel Girl, whose emotive artistic style and knack for capturing characters in their silliest moments perfectly suits the gluttonous teenager.

The new series will run alongside the upcoming ARCHIE series, launching on July 8, by Mark Waid and Fiona Staples, telling off-the-wall and hilarious stories in the new and revamped Riverdale.On getting inside of Jughead’s head, Zdarsky said, “He has moments where he shines and then goes back to being cool and zen. I love Jughead. He's the teen who's comfortable with himself, which is such rare, weird thing.”

JUGHEAD #1 will be available in comic book stores and digitally on October 7.

DC COMICS' CYBORG RECEIVES NEW COSTUME
05/27/15 @ 6:02 pm EST
Source: Comicbook | Categories: Justice League | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment
Cyborg is getting a massive upgrade at DC Comics.Alongside his fellow Justice Leaguers, and even Lex Luthor, Victor Stone will receive a brand-new look heading into DC’s Divergence initiative this summer. As teased in DC’s preview of Cyborg #1, by Dave Walker and Ivan Reis, Cyborg will seemingly die, only to “reboot” into a far sleeker hero.Cutting down on the robotic bulk and allowing more “Victor” to shine, the new look feels closer to a technological upgrade than just a costume tweak. DC is definitely emphasizing Cyborgs more organic features in the new look, complete with a set of robot toes.As other Justice League members receive new costumes to better align with their television or movie counterparts, we can’t help but wonder if this new Cyborg is a sample of what we'll see in next year’s Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice. After all, we can’t imagine that Warner Bros. wants to bury Ray Fisher under too many nuts and bolts.Cyborg #1 hits comic shops on July 22.
