OFF THE PRESS - TWILIGHT ZONE: SHADOW & SUBSTANCE #1
01/28/15 @ 9:22 am EST
Source: DiamondGalleries.com | Categories: The Twilight Zone Shadow and Substance | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment
Dynamite; $3.99 According to Thomas Wolfe, “You can’t go home again.” But Mr. Wolfe didn’t mention anything about going home to your past. In the first issue of Twilight Zone a successful writer flies back to his hometown for a book signing. What he finds is more than he anticipated when he finds himself face to face with his younger self. Upon encountering his younger self, he must decide if he should help the troubled, abused boy or leave him to suffer knowing what the future holds after that suffering is endured. The story written by Mark Rahner is very interesting both for its philosophical and ethical quandary. The question posed to this man is one anybody would struggle to answer. On top of that is the eerie, unsettling feeling leading up to these moments. The weight of the title is enough to warn readers that this plane ride will not be the usual trip. Edu Menna’s art aides the story by drawing characters with haggard visages, setting the tone for a story both complicated and thought provoking. This first issue comes with covers by Guiu Vilanova, Francesco Francavilla, Jay Shaw, and Jonathan Lau.

JIM WHEELOCK’S COMICS COLLECTION STOLEN IN BRATTLEBORO, VERMONT
01/27/15 @ 5:25 am EST
Source: Bleeding Cool | Categories: MIsc | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


From Bleeding Cool:

Comic book creator and collector Jim Wheelock writes to Bleediing Cool:

My storage space near Brattleboro, Vermont was robbed recently. It looks like my entire comics collection was taken. It has great personal value to me, and was also part of my retirement plans.

I’m a comics artist and illustrator, myself, best known for illustrating the graphic novel, Inferno Los Angeles. I live in Los Angeles, and am attempting to deal with things by remote control. I’m also traveling to Europe for about a week, from 1/25 – 2/3.

The culprit, identified to me as William Brown by the Brattleboro Police, was originally arrested for breaking into several units in the building. After the first break-ins, security cameras were installed, and he was videotaped breaking into a storage unit. He was released and has an arraignment scheduled. This was before I was aware of what was missing. In later interview, he confessed to stealing four boxes of comics, and claims he sold them to two dealers for very little money at a flea market in Wilmington, Vermont. He mentioned “Archie” comics specifically, and said he sold two boxes to a man, and two to a woman from New York state. He also said he sold stolen goods at flea markets in Hubbardston and Agawam, MA. He can no longer access the building.

He told police that he had a comics collection himself. Obviously, it might be mine.

I live in Los Angeles, California. I had a friend go in and dig through the rubble.

It looks like my entire collection of several thousand comic books from the 1950s – 1990s is gone. These were in about twenty white “long boxes” about three feet long and 12 inches by 10 inches or so. The boxes had distinctive handwritten labels by me with titles (Spider-Man, Thor, etc). This includes a collection of underground comics from the ’60s, including Zap Comics and others. There were also comics in shorter and odd-shaped boxes, including at least one reading “Published Work” (I’m an artist and illustrator). This includes multiple copies of the horror trade paperback,Taboo. Most of the comics were in clear plastic bags, and the boxes were lined with plastic trash bags. Some were also labelled by artist’s names (Joe Kubert, Alex Toth and others).

The books largely did not have backboards. Some were packed several to a bag, and some were not in bags, As I say, the boxes would be identifiable by me. The books probably also have a distinctive “barn” odor, making them less valuable, and possibly harder to sell.I had some of my own artwork in portfolios. It’s unclear if any of that is missing. Much of it would have my signature on it. Also some film lobby cards and posters.My LP record collection appears to have been taken as well about 14 crates of record albums, some of which had distinctive handwritten markings or were promotional copies. These include punk, rock, jazz and blues and some unusual records like Forrest J. Ackerman’s Music for Robots.

I will be in Europe from January 25th until February 3rd. I may not be able to get my phone messages during that time, but should have access to e-mail at various points on my trip.

I suspect if someone in the Northeast U.S. approaches you with a large collection or important issues such as mentioned it may be mine. He may also be selling on Craig’s List or eBay.

Here’s a partial list of what’s missing as best as possible at the moment.

This does amount to Grand Larceny as I understand it. Some of the books are worth hundreds of dollars each. Even if each were only worth a dollar, we’re talking a couple thousand dollars. We’re talking about around twenty long boxes of comics from the ’60s to the ’90s, most in fair to good condition.

These include The Fantastic Four and Spider-Man from #2 on, The Hulk from #3 on, The Avengers, Daredevil, Sgt. Fury, X-men, Conan The Barbarian, Dr. Strange, Nick Fury Agent Of S.H.I.E.L.D.. and others from #1 on. Issues ofTales To Astonish, Howard The Duck, Journey Into Mystery, Tales Of Suspense, Strange Tales including the origins of Dr Strange, Thor, Iron Man, Ant Man, S.H.I.E.L.D. and others.virtually every book Marvel and DC put out in the 60s is represented by large runs.DC books include ’60s on long runs of The Flash, Batman, Detective, Superman, Action, Adventure, Super-boy, Our Army At War, Enemy Ace, G.I. Combat, Sea Devils, Showcase, Brave And Bold, Star Spangled War Stories, Unexpected, Sandman and other Vertigo titles, and many others.

Comics from other companies include runs of Herbie, Adventures In The Unknown, Magnus Robot Fighter, The Three Rocketeers… the list is endless. There were also Creepy from #2 on, Vampirella and Eerie from #1 on, Also, a few 1940s books, include a Spirit prize comic, some coverless Sensation Comics, a couple of Incredible Science Fictions, a ’40s issue of Detective Comics in near mint, and more. There also were runs of Dell and Charlton books.

Also missing is a box containing books with my own work, including numerous copies of Taboo.

There are a number of unusual parts of the collection: A large number of 1950s Atlas/Timely war comics, various obscure humor books, such as Superduck and the mad imitator, Eh!. These would likely identify the collection.

Again, the robbery was in the Brattleboro, Vermont area. They could be anywhere in New England, New York or the Northeast.

I will be in Europe from January 25th until February 3rd. I may not be able to get my phone messages during that time, but should have access to e-mail at various points on my trip. My e-mail is jwhelok@earthlink.net.

If you find out anything, please contact Officer Adam Petlock at the Brattleboro Police Department — 802-257-7950 or adam.petlock@state.vt.us

Dynamic Forces wishes Mr. Wheelock the best of luck. Stay tuned for more.

MARK RAHNER TALKS CAREER 2.0 AND THE NEW TWILIGHT ZONE: SHADOW AND SUBSTANCE
01/26/15 @ 8:16 pm EST
Source: Bleeding Cool | Categories: The Twilight Zone Shadow and Substance | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Gail Simone, writer on Red Sonja #14, talks with writer Mark Rahner about The Twilight Zone: Shadow and Substance #1, both on sale now.

TZSS01CovCShaw

GAIL SIMONE: Okay, Mark, I am excited to talk to you about this new Twilight Zone book, and I’ll explain why in just a bit. But for those readers who are not familiar with your work (and this is actually the first story of yours I have read as well), could you give a little background, how you got to be a writer, how you came to be chosen for a high profile title likeTwilight Zone?

MARK RAHNER: In that case, I say welcome to the Mark party!I’ve been doing comics since around 2009. I came from Career 1.0 as a newspaper reporter and critic – largely at The Seattle Times – and began Career 2.0 with my creator-owned zombie-western, Rotten, from Moonstone Books. So doing the math, I’ve made my living as a writer for 20 years and the last six of those have been much more fun. You can find out – and read – a bunch more by and about me at www.markrahner.com.As far as doing Twilight Zone, you could say I “proved in” with a lot of previous Dynamite work, as well as being an obsessive, lifelong TZ and Rod Serling devotee – and letting our authority-figure editors know it.

TZSS01CovBFrancavilla

GS: Here’s the thing about myself and The Twilight Zone. I’m a fan. I mean, hardcore. I watch the series over and over, I even watch the color version with Forrest Whitaker. I have a stack of the prose collections, I have every issue of Carol Serling’s Twilight Zonemagazine. I’ve read and seen many, many attempts to nail that voice, that feeling of unease, and most of the time, they never quite get it. But I literally could tell from your first narration that you had utterly nailed it. I heard Rod Serling’s voice as I was reading, which is no small accomplishment. So, I have to ask, were you a fan previously? What went into getting the tone so tight?

MR: That means a lot to me, especially coming from a fellow Twilight Zone cultist. I’ve said from the time I started writing my previous TZ volumes – the 2014 Annual and Lost Tales– that that was my goal. So I hope you and the other readers will check those out, too.We’re the same on the hardcore front. The original show is gospel to me. I’m very familiar with Serling’s life. I read all the prose collections when I was a kid, have all those magazines, Night Gallery, Serling’s previous live TV work, interviews, biographies … you get the idea. It was in my veins at an early age, and I’ve been getting continuous infusions.

TZSS01CovDSubLau

GS: You’ve written some beloved cult icons before, in Dejah Thoris and the Avenger, for example. But this is The Twilight Zone. If you get it wrong, it seems like writers all over the world would hate you forever. (smiles) I know something about the pressure of getting fan favorites right. Did you have any concern about this story, keeping up with the standards not just of the show, but the importance it had in people’s memories?

MR: There’s no pressure greater than the prospect of hating myself if I screw up something that’s so important to me. But my career 1.0 was good schooling in performing under the greatest of pressures, and on deadlines.My main concern with “Stumbling Distance” was that it’s more personal than I’ve gotten in comics. Writing those long-established characters like Dejah Thoris and The Avenger– whom I also love – doesn’t lend itself to that so easily. But Serling went deep, and writing is risk.As far as people’s expectations, I want to exceed them. At least that’s what I strive for. I’m a compulsive researcher with a knack for getting the tones of things, but I also have no interest in inbred fan fiction or recycling catchphrases like “Submitted for your approval.” My stories are meant to be completely faithful, but still new and raw and experimental and angry.

GS: Tell me a little bit about your story, why did you choose to tell a story of a writer confronting his demons? This was a favorite theme of many TZ writers, obviously, but what made you go to that place?

TZSS01CovAVilanova

MR: The story had been percolating with me for a while. What would you say to your younger self – especially at a crucial moment? After you’d grown up, become civilized like a human, gained some perspective on what you’d lived through. Would you want to protect a child from the bad parts of what made you who you are?I rewatched “Walking Distance” on Blu-ray recently, and it nearly brought me to tears. Beautiful. One of the landmark Twilight Zone stories, and it features one of Serling’s most prominent obsessions: nostalgia for his childhood and hometown. So here’s my own inverted version of that, with a vaguely familiar feel, but it goes down a whole different path. I don’t want to retell or update the old stories. I’ve got plenty of my own.

GS: And finally, can you break down for us what’s coming up? I have to say, I’m down. I was very pleasantly drawn into this story and I will be following every issue. So what can you tell us about your future issues?

MR: Glad to hear it! The next one is more science-fiction, about a prisoner in an overly comfortable containment facility run by giant aliens. Then some weird phobia-suspense from my recurring nightmare about waking up on a mattress on the pinnacle of a skyscraper swaying in the wind.These are meant to feel like they could be episodes, yet still contemporary. I want you to feel like you’re in good hands. But hands that’ll give you a brisk shake.

Premier art comics publisher Nobrow has taken a major step today into engagement with digital media, introducing their iPad app for Nobrow titles. The move wasn’t exactly a foregone conclusion. Plenty of indie and art comic publishers have not yet made such a leap, and in the case of Nobrow, the publisher is known for its high quality production materials and the ways in which design is matched to the printed page.

Nobrow will be piloting and demonstrating the app coming up at Angouleme and spreading the word about the digital options now available for its titles. The app has features such as “page view”, “panel view” and even “layers” that may allow you to read the comic in its non-color and even roughs state, making for an “enriched” experience of reading beyond the finished product.

AN APE BIKER GANG ROARS INTO TOWN IN MARCH’S THE HUMANS
01/26/15 @ 7:55 pm EST
Source: Image | Categories: Image | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Bakersfield, California, 1970: The Humans (who happen to be apes) are the baddest biker gang of all. They deal out beatings, cook drugs, party endlessly, and struggle to keep their turf and status amongst the numerous outlaws, rival gangs, and bonafide killers — all of whom are trying to take their spot at the top of the heap. And then a member of the gang long thought dead returns… haunted by memories of hell on earth. Johnny is back in the fold in THE HUMANS, VOLUME 1 from Image Comics in March — but is his head where it needs to be to ride with The Humans again?

Writer Keenan Marshall Keller (Galactic Breakdown) and artist Tom Neely (Henry and Glenn Forever) team up on a high-octane, no-holds-barred, ape-biker-gang chopper ride into ‘70s exploitation genre bliss as Bobby, Johnny, and all the Humans fly down the road to oblivion on a ride filled with chains, sex, leather, denim, hair, blood, bananas, and chrome.

“I just love me some biker flicks and exploitation/genre in all forms,” said Keller. “It wasn’t like I was trying to do an ape project and settled on them being bikers… The Humans were bikers from the start. It’s my love affair with the fringe, with outlaws and no-good-doer’s and made me focus on biker culture.”

Neely, whose art captures the energy and abandon of The Humans’ life on the road, has relished the chance to draw full-time. “I get up and draw monkeys and motorcycles all day and it’s the best,” he said. “It’s also really great collaborating with another artist – Kristina Collantes is doing the coloring and I love to see how she transforms my pages. I love my black and white drawings for this book, but they really don’t come to life to feel like a real comic book until Kristina’s colors complete the picture.”

THE HUMANS, VOLUME 1 will be in comic book stores on March 11 and in bookstores on March 25. It is specially priced at just $9.99 and is available for pre-order now.
