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…”

ELLIS & HOWARD’S TREES OPTIONED FOR TELEVISION

Ellis & Howard’s Trees Optioned For Television

The Image Comics series “Trees” has been optioned for television. As reported by Deadline, NBCUniversal International Studios has optioned a television series based on the comic by writer Warren Ellis and artist Jason Howard. Actor Tom Hardy’s production company (Hardy Son & Baker) is behind the Image series’ transformation into a live-action television series.

“Trees” launched in May 2014 and has published 14 issues since then; the most recent issue arrived in stores in August 2016. The title of the series doesn’t refer to actual trees; instead, the “trees” are actually aliens that have planted themselves on the surface, giving them a tree-like appearance. Ellis and Howard’s series, which has a global perspective, takes place a decade after the extraterrestrial arrival. Deadline notes that the series is expected to combine multiple genres, like drama, crime and sci-fi.

Tom Hardy and Dean Baker formed Hardy Son & Baker in 2012 and has already sold the eight-part series “Taboo” to BBC One and FX. The production company is also behind the film adaptation of the Vertigo series “100 Bullets.”
SONY ALTERS VALIANT MOVIE PLANS; HARBINGER TO RELEASE BEFORE BLOODSHOT

Sony Alters Valiant Movie Plans; Harbinger to Release Before Bloodshot

Fans anticipating Sony Pictures’ movie adaptations of Valiant Comics characters Harbinger and Bloodshot are in for something of a surprise. Though the studio had originally planned to bring “Bloodshot” to the big screen in 2017, with “Harbinger” to follow shortly after that, the release timeline will now see a change.

According to TheWrap, Sony still plans on producing both films, along with three others based on the publishers’ character — however, “Harbinger” will now be the first to release, introducing the central characters, while “Bloodshot” will come out the following year.

Sony recently renewed its option on “Harbinger,” and plans to get rolling on the film quickly. This will provide the studio an opportunity to explore other Valiant-owned characters, and introduce them in potential spin-offs.

The films’ plots are currently unknown, but they will likely take plenty of cues from their respective comics. Jim Shooter’s “Harbinger” followed the exploits of psionic teen hero Peter Stanchek as he masters his powers and runs afoul of the Harbinger Organization, an association of super-powered individuals run by their mysterious and dangerous leader, Toyo Harada.

“Bloodshot,” created by Kevin VanHook and Yvel Guichet, follows an amnesiac super-soldier who is genetically enhanced with nanites, courtesy of the shadowy Project Rising Spirit. Without a memory of his past, the super-powered government agent embarks on a journey to discover his origins and exact vengeance upon his enemies.

The two characters will have their origins explored in their respective solo films — all building to a Valiant-based crossover movie, “Harbinger Wars.” No directors or actors have been assigned to either project, though Eric Heisserer will be writing the screenplay for “Harbinger,” with Neal Moritz of Orignal Film, Dinesh Shamdasani of Valiant Entertainment, and Andrea Giannetti of Sony as producers.
ELECTION NEWS? THE THREE STOOGES RED WHITE & STOOGE

Source: American Mythology | Categories: MIsc | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


There’s no need to wait until November. American Mythology Productions has all the presidential election news you need with the release of The Three Stooges – Red White & Stooge comic book. We asked which Stooge fans wanted to see in the Oval Office, and boy did the people want their votes to be heard!

Reaching out on social media, email, and websites, the response was overwhelming as eager fans cast their “votes” to see their favorite Stooge take center stage in the most powerful office in the world. Fans had to choose between Larry, Moe and Curly, and after a close campaign, a true champion of democracy stood tall.

American Mythology is proud to introduce our country’s next D.O.O.F.U.S. – Curly! That’s right, Curly pulled away from the pack, and ran away with the election. When asked for his thoughts about running for office, Curly had this to say, “Gee, I usually only run when Moe’s chasing me. Does the job come with pie? I’m starvinated after all this politicking.” Don’t believe us?! You’ll have to pick up your own copy of Red White & Stooge this coming Wednesday (9/28/16) and see for yourself, only from American Mythology Productions!

“When we came up with the idea to do a political issue and have fans vote their favorite Stooge into office, we never imagined the response we’d get,” said S.A. Check (Three Stooges, Pink Panther), the book’s writer. “It was nothing short of amazing! We saved the last couple pages of the book until we received the results, so readers get to find out who won at the end. With the presidential election in full swing, it was the perfect time to take a lighter look at the process, and have some fun with it.”

“The Three Stooges are American icons, known the world over for their comedy genius,” said Michael Bornstein, American Mythology’s Publisher. “It’s truly an honor to have a chance to help carry on their legacy by producing comics that we believe pay respect to their body of work, and introduce them to a new generation of fans. Working with C3 entertainment has been everything we’d hope for in partnership to put out quality books for fans to enjoy. Red White & Stooge is exactly the type of book we feel captures the essence of The Boys comedy while putting a modern spin on the story. And let’s face it, who hasn’t thought about how Curly would do as our Commander-in-Chief.”

The HBO series inspired by the 1973 Michael Crichton movie will ride into the Javits Center for New York Comic-Con at 3:30 PM Sunday, October 9, at the Hammerstein Ballroom. Westworld skipped San Diego Comic-Con, but to jibe with its October 2 premiere date, always had a stop planned at the NYC event.

HBO will screen the second episode, followed by a panel discussion with showrunners Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, along with cast members Thandie Newton, Jeffrey Wright and Jimmi Simpson. More cast will be announced.

Westworld centers on a Western-themed amusement park for the wealthy, who romance and kill life-like androids while the park’s creators monitor the action, tweaking its robotic bugs. But then a cowboy robot goes awry, creating too many problems. Anthony Hopkins, Ed Harris, James Marsden, Evan Rachel Wood and Rodrigo Santoro also lead a huge ensemble cast. HBO has unveiled an alternate poster.

Doctor Strange Avengers Infinity War

Benedict Cumberbatch will make his first appearance as Doctor Strange in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in November’s Doctor Strange, but Doctor Strange’s appointment book already seems to be filling up.

Rumors have already been circulating suggesting that Doctor Strange will make an appearance in Thor: Ragnarok. That would be Doctor Strange’s first Marvel Cinematic Universe crossover appearance. Cumberbatch seemingly just confirmed his second.

Speaking to Empire Magazine about Doctor Strange’s future in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Cumberbatch noted the “logistical challenge of aligning his schedule with those of Robert Downey Jr, Chris Hemsworth, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany”.

Downey, Evans, Olsen, and Bettany are, of course, the actors who respectively play Iron Man, Captain America, Scarlet Witch, and Vision of the Avengers. The next film on Marvel’s schedule that it would make sense for all four of those characters to appear in Avengers: Infinity War.

Another one of Neil Gaiman’s fantastical tales is turning to radio later this year. Following the success of Neverwhere and Good Omens on BBC Radio 4, director Dirk Maggs will sprinkle Stardust over the popular channel.

The upcoming radio adaptation will tell the story of Tristran Thorn as he searches for a fallen star to gift to the woman he loves. However, when he finds the token, Tristran realizes the star has turned into a beautiful lady named Yvaine who’s now being hunted for her gifts. Teaming up, both Tristran and Yvaine flee the star-hunters and wind up in the land of Fairie where danger awaits them.

Neil Gaiman teased fans that the Stardust adaptation was coming. The author took to Twitter and posted a message that reads, ”Hypothetically speaking, if @BBCRadio4 happened to be adapting Stardust into a radio play, would you like to see a picture of the cast?” Fans responded enthusiastically, prompting the radio network to posted a cast photo on their social media accounts.
