THE SHADOW GETS 9 OUT OF 10 NEWBIE RE-READS

Comic Book Newbie reviewed The Shadow #1 by Garth Ennis and Aaron Campbell and gave the book “9 out of 10 Newbie Re-Reads.” Here’s what they had to say:

“I finally got around to reading this one and am I glad I did!

“Garth Ennis is one of the hottest names in the industry right now and this book proclaims why.  Meet his main character, Lamont Cranston.   Smart business man who the CIA consults by day and The Shadow by night.  He has the ability to see the future and knows well the past. He also has the ability to make the dead speak the truth to him.  Ennis takes us on a journey into the past where Japan created atrocities upon China.  The history lesson sets up what is to come in this pre-WWII storyline when a ship full with Japanese goons is taken out by the Shadow.  Seems there is something these guys are looking for, along with other criminal groups and the CIA…  The Shadow also seems very interested in it.

“I really like this introduction issue.  I like the history lesson and the banter from the meeting between Cranston and the government agents. The action was pretty cool and a I am impressed with the abilities The Shadow possesses.  I think we have just got a taste of what he can do in this issue and I’m excited to see what other abilities he has.”

AMC'S 'PREACHER' ENLISTS JACKIE EARLE HALEY AS KEY COMICS CHARACTER

The 'Watchmen' alum has booked a six-episode arc in the adaptation of the controversial graphic novel.

AMC's Preacher adaptation has enlisted Oscar nominee Jackie Earle Haley to play an iconic character from the graphic novel.

Haley has been tapped for a six-episode arc on the upcoming AMC drama, where he will portray the iconic character of Odin Quincannon, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Based on Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon's 1990s comic series from DC Comics imprint Vertigo, Preacher revolves around Rev. Jesse Custer (Agent Carter's Dominic Cooper), a badass Texas preacher who, after losing his faith, learns that God has left heaven and forsaken his duties. Jesse becomes the only one who is able to track God down and hold him responsible for his abdication. Tulip O'Hare (breakout Ruth Negga), Jesse's beer-guzzling vampire ex-girlfriend, accompanies him on his quest for answers.

Haley's Odin is described as a small, decrepit man with the unscrupulous iron will necessary to be the most powerful man in Annville County, Texas. The chief employer in town, Odin runs Quincannon Meat & Power, a 125-year-old family run cattle slaughterhouse business.

In the comics, Odin is a member of the local KKK branch and clashes multiple times with Jesse, with the latter eventually discovering him having sex with a mannequin made out of meat products.

Now, these leading ladies are having an incredible fashion moment with Garage Magazine,” says Sana Amanat, director of content development and editor, Marvel Comics. “Reinterpreting our superheroes through these fashion magazine covers perfectly demonstrates what we believe about our characters–the idea that anyone can express their own unique identity and individualism.”

Additionally, readers can use the Garage magazine app and scan each of the covers to see the models, styled in comic book form, come to life as 3D digital animations.

The special edition covers will hit newsstands globally this Thursday.

DEATHSTROKE UNAVAILABLE TO ARROW PRODUCERS; WALLER’S FATE NOT A DC DECISION

While speculating on where the DC Comicscharacter Deathstroke might land in the DC Films universe, Heroic Hollywood pointed to Arrowexecutive producer Marc Guggenheim‘s recent Tumblr Q&A session. In one response, he announced the character, played by Manu Bennett, is no longer available to appear on the show.

Asked about the character — last seen in the A.R.G.U.S. prison on Lian Yu, Guggenheim wrote, “The character of Slade Wilson is currently tied up in another DC project.”

It is unclear if that project is one of the upcoming DC Films or another television show. Rumors suggest the character may actually show up in the upcoming Suicide Squad, with its roster of characters that were also removed from the Arrow stable.

Many assumed the film was also the reason Amanda Waller’s position at A.R.G.U.S. on the series was terminated, but in another Tumblr post, Guggenheim wrote, “It wasn’t mandated by DC.”

Previously, DC Entertainment president Diane Nelson announced the TV and film universes would be separate in an attempt to keep from “handcuffing our creators into trying to work with the same storyline or force them to hold back characters or introduce certain characters.” Granted, her comments did not clarify which productions would have dibs on which characters.

Of course, now that fans have seen so many characters become unavailable to main DC TV universe, many fear for The Flash as a feature film Barry Allen will be racing his way onto the big screen soon.
ASSASSIN’S CREED IS AN ELEVATED FANTASY ACCORDING TO MICHAEL FASSBENDER

Assassin’s Creed star Michael Fassbenderspoke with Empire about the movie, which he called an “elevated” fantasy like The Matrix.

In the film, he plays a man that discovers — via technology that can generate a simulation from his genetic memories — that he is the descendant of a 15th Century Spanish Assassin.

“This idea of DNA memory elevates it from a basic fantasy genre [piece], because you have something an audience can actually believe in,” he explained. “Then the journey becomes so much more elevated, because you’re on board in a different way.”

Besides the basic premise of the Assassin’s Creed video game, the film will also recreate some of the game series’ signature stunts, including the Leap of Faith off of spectacular heights. Fassbender said stunt man Damian Walters made a 120-foot Leap of Faith without a rope into a waiting bag on the ground. “it’s pretty incredible to see,” he added.

Assassin’s Creed opens on December 21st.
WRITER’S COMMENTARY – FRANK BARBIERE ON DEJAH THORIS #1
02/08/16 @ 8:54 pm EST

Writer Frank Barbiere comments on issue #1 of the new Dejah Thoris comic fromDynamite. Cover art by NEN, interrior art by Francesco Manna.

Dejah 1 CovANEN

PAGES 1 & 2

I knew I wanted to open the book with a glimpse of what was to come, that being Dejah in her new “Larka” identity and in heated combat. I think it makes for a compelling opening and omen of things to come, and a big theme is mirrored here in the narration—life and positions of power are cyclical.

PAGES 3 & 4

This issue doesn’t rely much on narration, so it was important for me to show Dejah in her element (that being the city of Helium). It’s particularly notable that Dejah mentions Helium is the center of her world—obviously we know she’s going to be leaving it, and it’s important to see her character at ease. Obviously Dejah’s plans for the day are rudely interrupted.

PAGES 5 & 6

Dejah learns of her father’s disappearance and we get our introduction of John Carter and Valoris. Valoris, who we reveal to be our “villain” is here to help at this point, not playing all his cards. Carter is also at a loss—something I thought was very important for a series about Dejah. John can’t just run in and punch his way out of this conspiracy—it’s going to take far more.Dejah 1 P1

Dejah learns that she is to become Queen. This is huge for her—but under these circumstances, she’s far from pleased.

Also—Thana’s spying!

PAGES 7-9

John has turned up nothing, but we get a glimpse into his relationship with Dejah. They are a perfect couple of equals—they both have great strength and leadership qualities, and the last panel on page 7 reinforces the idea that together they are a force to be reckoned. Knowing Dejah will have to go out on her own, it was important for me to sell this sentiment to our readers.

Dejah is rudely awakened, and this time placed under arrest. John won’t stand for this, but even he is not foolish enough to go against the acting agent of the King. There is some deliberation about whether this is out of character, but I’d like to believe that at this point both Dejah and John believe that things can be cleared up and are more confused than enraged.

PAGES 10-14

Dejah 1 P2

Dejah now imprisoned. She still refuses to accept the gravity of the situation, but we get a nice moment showing her refusal to be afraid. John’s inability to act against Valoris is meant to show the futility of brute force against politics. Again, this isn’t a fight he can punch through—it’s a calculated attack.

Also, an extremely important plot point—a memory shaken loose inside Dejah. These accusations seem completely false, but something inside Deajh is tugging at her—she knows there is some truth to be unraveled. As we’ve established, her identity to this point revolves around being a Princess of Helium, so this is EXTREMELY SHOCKING. This is largely a book about identity and how it defines us, and Francesco and Morgan did a beautiful job with these scenes to show their importance visually.

Dejah realizes this is a personal journey and problem, and pulls away from her husband. This is in strict opposition to her being a team with him, to being able to solve everything together. Dejah’s core identity is shaken here, and it makes perfect sense that she will have to go this one alone. She believes in her husband to resolve a conspiracy, but the truth of her lineage is truly a personal journey.

Dejah 1 P3

PAGES 16-19

Dejah is able to stop her would-be assassin, as she is quite capable, but then receives aid from THANA. A big part of this book is Dejah realizing that though a just ruler, she has been caught up in her own position of power—she is learning to see the world through the eyes of a commoner, and it’s going to be very illuminating. Thematically, I didn’t want to make Dejah seem insensitive or overly blind, but it’s a fact of life—if you are accustomed to living in the upper level of society, you will certainly start to overlook many things. This is largely a story of Dejah learning about herself and the world around her.

PAGES 20-22

We see Carter unable to act against Valoris. Again, I don’t mean to cast John as being weak or dumb, but this is something larger than him. I’d like to believe that part of him realizes he can’t just fight his own guard, that he’ll have to play this smart—he is plotting to take down Valoris, but he won’t do it just yet. Thana then delivers John a message from Dejah and we see her leaving.

Dejah 1 P4

Again, Dejah perhaps IS acting a bit out of self-interest here and perhaps even selfishly, but her whole sense of identity has come apart. She MUST know who she is. She trusts her husband implicitly to take care of matters in Helium, but her personal quest is just beginning. She’s cut the ties with her life in Helium and is beginning her own journey—I can’t wait to show readers where it goes!

LUPITA NYONG'O IN TALKS TO STAR IN SCI-FI THRILLER WITH AVA DUVERNAY DIRECTING

'Jurassic World' director Colin Trevorrow and his collaborator Derek Connolly wrote the script.

Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o is in negotiations to star in Intelligent Life, a sci-fi thriller from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment that has Ava DuVernay circling to direct.

The project already has some bold names on the creative side.Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow and his collaborator Derek Connolly wrote the script. Frank Marshall is producing with Trevorrow as well as production banner Big Beach.

Nyong’o is in negotiations, while DuVernay is expected to receive an offer to direct in the next 24 hours. The director, who helmed the Martin Luther King biopic Selma, is also fielding an offer from Disney to adapt A Wrinkle in Time, the children book classic by Madelein L'Engle. There is no conflict between the two projects so the director could end up doing both.

Intelligent Life is a reworking of an earlier Trevorrow-Connolly project titled The Ambassador about a U.N. worker in a department that was created to represent humankind in the event of alien contact. The man falls in love with a mysterious woman who turns out to be an alien. The tone is said to be similar to Trevorrow’sSafety Not Guaranteed and takes The Ambassador to a larger scale story.

Nyong’o will play the woman at the center of the alien contact.

A summer start is being targeted.

Nyong’o won an Oscar for her breakout performance in 12 years a Slave, a movie that was also her big-screen debut. She recently appeared as alien Maz Kanata in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and is part of the all-star voice cast of Disney’s The Jungle Book, which opens April 15. She also stars in Disney’s chess drama Queen of Katwe with David Oyelowo.
