ICE: BAYOU BLACKOUT HITS IN MAY03/03/15 @ 3:49 pm EST
As the Green Hornet
team up with the Brass Hornet
in Legenderry: Green Hornet
#4, Byron Brewer
checked in with series writer Daryl Gregory
. Cover art bySergio Davila
.BYRON BREWER: Daryl, has it been fun writing Green Hornet and Kato in this steampunk world? Does it present you with challenges, or actually free you up from some?DARYL GREGORY:
On one hand, it’s a shame not to be adding to the canon in the main universe. But on the other hand, it’s incredibly freeing to not have to worry about much continuity, and to lay the foundation for stories to come. I imagine myself shouting at future Legenderry writers, “Deal with my choices, lackeys! Wait, where’d you get that retcon button? Stop!”BB: You once told me the character of Kato is pivotal in this world and to your storyline: why?DG:
In my mind, the title of the book is “Legenderry: Green Hornet and Kato.” They’re a team, and GH without Kato would make for an incomplete story. Kato isn’t a teenage sidekick — he’s a grown man, with his own reasons for doing what he’s doing. I’d love to spend even more time on the nuances of his relationship to GH, but this comic is mostly about snappy dialogue and the kicking of the butt.BB: How the heck are the two Hornets and Kato gonna make it on a five-mile walk on foot with every gang in the city after them?DG:
This is where I’m supposed to say, “Tune in next week to find out!” But I will say that this is the issue that is most directly influenced by one of my favorite movies, The Warriors
, with a nod to another favorite movie, The Blues Brothers
. (As a native Chicagoan, it is my sacred birthright to be allowed to insert references to Jake and Elwood on anything I work on.)BB: Tell us about the character of Lidia Valcallan from your perspective.DG:
Poor Lidia. I would have liked to have written more about her before she became the bride of BlackMass, the main villain of Bill Willingham’s world. What would she have been like when she was scrambling for power, murdering her way to the top of the crime world? But now she has to keep a demonic husband fed with souls, and that eats up a woman’s time. At this point, she’s a woman seriously considering divorce, if she only knew the right dark-arts-wielding lawyer to do the deed. And yes, I realize that the term “dark-arts-wielding lawyer” is redundant.BB: How has it been working with artist Brent Peeples?DG:
It’s been so much fun. I write down crazy stuff, and he makes it crazier. Crazier, better, and beautiful.BB: The BRASS Hornet?? Really??!DG:
REALLY!!!! (I just wanted to use more punctuation than you.) By issue #4, people will have a lot more information about this new Hornet and the secrets behind that helmet.

HIGHLY ANTICIPATED ROCKET GIRL #6 PREVIEW PAGES REVEALED03/02/15 @ 9:18 pm EST
This June, return to the fight against the corrupt, mutant-exploiting government as a classic X-Crossover is reborn in the WARZONES! in X-TINCTION AGENDA #1
! Writer Marc Guggenheim (Arrow
Executive Producer) and artist Carmine Di Giandomenico (All-New X-Factor)
return to the shores of Genosha and to one of the most beloved X-Men crossovers of all time!
It has been ten years since the fall of Cameron Hodge and his fascist regime. Ten years that Havok and Wolfsbane have toiled and labored to rebuild Genosha into the proud mutant homeland it once was. But a decade removed from Hodge and his iron rule, their work may all be for naught. A plague has spread across the nation, infecting mutants and threatening their race with extinction. With all of Genosha quarantined and all but abandoned by the rest of the world, including the X-Men, old friends may become new enemies!
“A virus is decimating the mutant and mutate population,” says writer Marc Guggenheim in an interview with Marvel.com. “The X-Men have a cure in the form of Triage, but won’t violate the quarantine that Genosha is under, not wanting to risk extinction should the virus spread. Havok and Wolfsbane take it upon themselves to go and get Triage and bring him back to Genosha, by force if necessary.”
Ask yourself – what lengths would you go to save your people? Havok and Wolfsbane will stop at nothing to save the people of Genosha – but have they doomed Earth in the process? Find out as the landmark X-Crossover of the 90’s makes it to Battleworld in X-TINCTION AGENDA
#1 this June!

Roche limit: in astronomy, the minimum distance to which a large satellite can approach its primary body without being torn apart by tidal forces. -Encyclopedia BritannicaBRAINIAC’S PLAN COMES TO FRUITION03/02/15 @ 9:10 pm EST
The Roche Limit Colony lies at the cusp of an energy anomaly in the Andromeda Galaxy, and on top of a cache of an alien mineral deposit used to make the drug “Recall.” It has become a magnet for greed, crime, a place where people disappear — both because they want to or someone else wants them to. In ROCHE LIMIT, VOLUME 1, the March graphic novel by Michael Moreci (HOAX HUNTERS, HACK/SLASH: SON OF SAMHAIN) and Vic Malhotra (The X-Files: Year Zero, Thumbprint), Sonya Torin wants to find one of those who have disappeared, her sister Bekkah, who came to Roche Limit to help Recall addicts.Sonya’s only help on the corrupt, lawless colony in finding her sister is Alex Ford, a shifty drug manufacturer with his own set of pursers who are after his Recall formula. As the search for Bekkah leads Sonya deeper into Roche Limit’s underbelly, they move ever closer to a burgeoning spiritual movement with the energy anomaly at its center.“Both noir and sci-fi are perfect genres to employ for Roche Limit because both have deep underpinnings in existentialism/fatalism,” said writer Moreci in an interview with Comic Bulletin. “I’ve always contended that the best sci-fi examines who we are as humans, particularly in the context of our social mores... Noir is similar, but a bit more personal…. I want to explore that intersection of existentialism and popcorn fiction as only genre fiction can.”Artist Malhotra inhabits Roche Limit with weary denizens who move through a lived-in, often dilapidated and grimy setting. “I find it really tough to get my imagination going with stories set in sleek sci-fi settings. The sense of history is lost,” he said in the Comics Bulletin interview. “That’s why it’s more fun to draw old buildings rather than new ones or an old tennis shoe rather than a brand new one.”ROCHE LIMIT, VOLUME 1, the first book in a planned trilogy, will be in comic book stores on March 25 and in bookstores on April 7. It is available for pre-order now.ROCHE LIMIT, VOLUME 1 by Michael Moreci and Vic Malhotra

Latino Review is reporting exclusively that Drew Goddard will not only direct the new Marvel/Disney/Sony Spider-Man film but he will also write it as well.
The publication states that there has been much reported on and some news neglected in recent weeks. Kevin Feige and the Marvel team will be producing the new series at Sony in what is envisioned as a three part series to come out over consecutive summers. There is talk about calling the series SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN after yet another Marvel comics series ala the last films being called “Amazing.”
Feige was allowed to join the process only after Ike Perlmutter, Feige’s boss and the man behind the curtain, insisted that former partner and one time friend Avi Arad be removed from the film series. Since Sony had installed Arad as a courtesy back in 2000 it was an easy removal legally. But since former Sony Studio head Amy Pascal made herself a producer on the film on the way out the door, there was reprtedly a lot of acrimony when Amy informed Avi he was out. Arad will receive an EP credit on the film and instead focus on making a feature out of GHOST IN THE SHELL without any Asian actors.
The thinking at the moment is that Sony will faze out all the Spidey Verse films they were developing. Yes even the Aunt May film (that was real!) and focus on a story involving Spidey versus the Sinister Six. At one point they were developing a film that was just going to be a spinoff called THE SINISTER SIX. That’s scrapped but the big news is that the director of that film, the aforementiioned Drew Goddard, will write AND direct the Spectacular Spider Man movie.
Key things to look for in the new series
No new origin story, Spidey exists from the beginning, taken as a given
New actor, probably an unknown, he will be specifically based in High School and they want him to be able to grow up into the role. The thought being if this works, Spidey can do multiple trilogies for years ala Harry Potter.
A major part of the first film will involve Spider- Man fighting Iron Man and then trying to pass the “audition” to join the Avengers
The first film will involved the Sinister Six coming together with the thought to later maybe spin them off.
