Titan Comics is getting into the Minions business.

The British-based publisher will launch a line of comics and graphic novels to coincide with the release of "Minions," a feature film spinoff of Universal's "Despicable Me" franchise.

In an announcement on The Hollywood Reporter, Titan publisher Nick Landau stated that the company is "so excited to be part of this wonderful franchise."

The first wave launches on June 17 with both digital and physical releases of the first "Minions" comic. The line will eventually include four comic book issues, two digests, two hardcovers and a paperback collection.

The Minions made their big debut in the 2010 film "Despicable Me," which was followed in 2013 with the blockbuster "Despicable Me 2."

"Minons" features the voices of Pierre Coffin, Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm and Michael Keaton.

Universal's "Minions" opens on July 10.



"THE EVEN REDDER WEDDING" - TROY BROWNFIELD TALKS BLOOD QUEEN VS DRACULA

Troy Brownfield talks to Byron Brewer about the final issue of Blood Queen Vs Dracula for Dynamite and how he feels after combining two characters he worked on in the past. Covers by Jay Anacleto and Fabiano Neves

BQvsDrac04CovAAnacleto

BYRON BREWER: Well, Troy, this mini is reaching its conclusion with #4 in June. Are you satisfied with the story that you told, really extending two other works you had previously done: Blood Queen and the Dracula novel?

TROY BROWNFIELD: I would have to say that I’m very satisfied. Dracula, of course, is an incredibly flexible character, which has been proven out by the number of adaptations and interpretations we’ve seen in culture over time. Elizabeth, as we’ve seen, can fit not only in that pseudo-fairy-tale style but a historical horror setting. I wanted to show that we could do something interesting and entertaining with this mix, and I think we did that.

BB: You certainly do pack a lot of historic references and points into each and every comic. Are you a history buff? How much research do you do and why is that important to you?

TB: I’d say that I’m definitely interested in history. If you’re going to set a story in a certain time, you owe it to your audience to do the work. I never really try to calculate how much research I do, but there’s a lot. It’s an important part of the whole thing. One example in particular from my work is my webcomic Sparkshooter, which is set in 2003; I’m always really conscientious about things like the look of telephones, film references, and more. It would bother ME if it wasn’t done without an eye for detail. And, finally, if you have something that’s just wildly inaccurate, it’s going to take the reader out of the story. That happens to me with things like The Wedding Singer, which is a fun film, but it purports to take place in 1985. Then in a scene, you’ll have a song like “It’s Tricky” that didn’t come out until later. It might seem like a really small thing, but that takes me out. I try really hard to not be the one to do that.

BB: Winging off the above, adding the Ottomans to this saga was a wonderful background touch!

TB: Thanks! Like I said previously, I wanted to find a common opponent while sticking with some of the ideas I approached in Prince Dracula (Dracula as patriot, etc.). The Ottoman Empire made complete sense for both characters, particularly in terms of history. I probably could have invented some third supernatural threat, but I wanted the real power dynamics to be between Dracula and Elizabeth. Also, the inclusion of the brothers allowed me to put a bit of a human face on it. They’re a conquering army, sure, but there are people in it that have directly suffered losses on account of the actions of Dracula. I thought it was an interesting thing to include.

BB: Has it been fun working with artist Kewber Baal? What do you think of his efforts in bringing your story to life on paper?

TB: Kewber is a great collaborator. I would work with him again in a second. I’m particularly happy with issue #3. I told him that I really wanted him to draw like a horror film would look in terms of some of the focus, characters appearing suddenly out of shadow, etc. and he nailed it. That’s probably my favorite issue of the mini. It’s also the biggest spotlight on Elizabeth, and he really showed several sides of her personality. Kewber made me a fan of his for certain.

BB: In a non-spoilery way, can you give us any hint if we will in future be addressing Elizabeth as Lady Dracula instead of Blood Queen? (smiles)TB: Ladies and gentlemen, the ever redder Red Wedding (laughs). That would involve some fascinating conflict, but I don’t think that’s the direction that either story would necessarily follow. But now you’ve got me thinking about it. Damn you, Byron!

BB: Bwahaha! OK … You seemed to have attached yourself to the Blood Queen! Where will you two be appearing next in the Dynamite universe?

TB: Well, it’s only natural. I developed the first series for Dynamite and I’ve gotten to put a lot in Elizabeth between the first series, the Annual, and the mini. I would love to at least do another one-shot or an Altered States with her. As for where else I might be in terms of Dynamite, keep an eye out. You never know what might happen.

Ben Affleck Bat Man Superman

Warner Bros. is planning to release its first trailer for “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” with the May 15 launch of “Mad Max: Fury Road,” sources confirm to Variety.

Warner Bros. has not commented officially on the news, which was first reported by the Collider site.

The first footage for “Batman v. Superman” was unveiled last year at Comic-Con, a year after the project was announced as a sequel to 2013’s “Man of Steel.”

Zack Snyder is directing from Chris Terrio’s script, from a story by Snyder and David S. Goyer.

The cast includes Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne, Jesse Eisenberg and Jeremy Irons.

“Batman v. Superman” is scheduled to be released on March 25, 2016.

After their names appeared on a list of cast members attending the "Avengers: Age of Ultron"premiere, Disney confirmed to SlashFilm that Julie Delpy ("Before Sunrise") and Linda Cardellini ("Freaks and Geeks," "ER") were involved in the film.

Though Disney confirmed that the actresses' names were not a misprint on the aforementioned list, the representative did not offer any additional details, which leaves their roles unknown at this time.

Their capacity within the film is likewise unknown, though their reputations and this late announcement suggest that they may only have cameo roles.

Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" arrives in theaters on May 1.

An under-the-weather Charlie Cox made a visit to the Late Show with David Letterman to talk about the upcoming Netflix series Marvel’s Daredevil.

Cox admitted that he had a bit of food poisoning from some dodgy prosciutto from the hotel mini-fridge and he would have cancelled his appearance if David Letterman was not retiring soon.

He spoke about Daredevil, describing the character as his blindness being the source of his strength. He also talked about binge viewing of the show and how Netflix would like the actors to stress that in the press.

Marvel’s Daredevil premieres on Netflix April 10th.

HEART AND SOULE: A RETURN FROM THE LAND OF THE DEAD

Source: Comic Book Resources | Categories: Inhumanity | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


It's a time of great trials and tribulations for the Royal Family of Marvel Comics' Inhumans.

They're trying to reestablish their Capital City of Attilan as an island in New York's Hudson River; they're training and taking in the newly powered Inhumans emerging across the globe thanks to a cloud of transformative mist released by their former king, Black Bolt; and they're dealing with the threat of hostile rival Inhuman factions.

Making things even more perilous is Queen Medusa taking these threats on without Karnak, one of her most trusted advisors who took his own life in the aftermath of Marvel's recent "Infinity" event.Lacking Karnak's advice and ability to perceive weaknesses and stress points in virtually anything,

Medusa has turned to other advisors like the "Nuhuman" Lineage, and in writer Charles Soule and artist Andre Araujo's "Inhuman" #13 the former mobster showed his treacherous true colors by luring the Royal Family into a trap and shooting another of its members in the back.

While things are decidedly bleak, all hope is not lost after the final page revealed Karnak alive and observing Lineage's treachery from the afterlife, announcing his discovery of a weakness in the land of the dead.
DEADPOOL MOVIE OFFICIALLY RATED R

Fox has officially given their Deadpool solo film an “R” rating, ending speculation over whether the studio would actually distribute a movie worthy of the Merc with a Mouth. The news comes via JoBlo in a move that one could only expect from a Deadpool movie.

Directed by Tim Miller, Deadpool stars Ryan Reynolds as Deadpool/Wade Wilson, Morena Baccarin as Copycat,and T.J. Miller as Weasel. The film comes from a script co-written by Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, Fabian Nicieza, Rhett Reese, and Paul Wernick.

The news follows last week’s major reveal of Ryan Reynolds in the official Deadpool costume, sporting a look that’s almost identical to the character’s comic book interpretation. And now with a "R" rating that will most likely honor the character’s dark humor and gratuitous violence, it looks like Deadpool may be one of the most faithful comic adaptations yet.

Deadpool hits theaters on February 12, 2016.

NEAL ADAMS RACEBENDS STAN LEE'S TWO-ISSUE FLOP, SOLARMAN
04/01/15 @ 3:55 pm EST

Solarman_Vol_1_1



It’s an all-but-forgotten piece of Stan Lee’s back catalogue. Solarman was written by Stan Lee and drawn by Jim Mooney and Mike Zeck, in 1989. Part of a pitch for an animated series starring a new Marvel character, the pilot episode flopped and the series lasted for two issues.

The comic saw wannabe Marvel artist teenager Benjamin Tucker gaining alien technological power, along with a helpful robot called Beepie. Permanent bracelets can transform sunlight into superpowers and a super identity of Solarman.

But because the character wasn’t original to Marvel Comics, and was created by producer David Oliphant ten years previously as an educational comic drawn by Dick Giordano, the comic can now be revived without Marvel Comics.

And with Neal Adams. Fresh from Batman and Wolverine comic books, Adams is looking for something to up his profile, and so Solarman is it.
DYNAMITE TO PUBLISH GRUMPY CAT COMICS

too_good_for_grumpy_cat

From Bleeding Cool, this April Fool oddity that is absolutely true:

The latest in Dynamite’s line of licensed comic books will be one based on internet meme and very real feline, Grumpy Cat.

Dynamite has a history of signing up all manner of interesting licenses from James Bond, to today’s Looking For Group to Battlestar Galactica to Army Of Darkness to The Phantom to Doodle Jump.

How the famously mardy moggy will feature in a Dynamite book is anyone’s guess, however.

Something like this, perhaps?
