Don't forget - DC Comics' Green Christmas affidavit is included on the December 3 Final Order Cutoff list under item code OCT098160.  Retailers participating in this program will have an on-sale date of December 30 for BLACKEST NIGHT #6 (OCT090176; 1:25 variant edition: OCT090177; 1:100 variant sketch edition: OCT090178).  IMPORTANT UPDATE: Please note that UK retailers now will have a December 30 on sale date for this issue.  As a reminder, to qualify, participating retailers must "sign" a DC Comics electronic affidavit at the Diamond retailer website acknowledging that they understand that copies of BLACKEST NIGHT #6 may not be sold, loaned, displayed, traded, scanned, stolen or in any other way released prior to Wednesday, December 30, 2009 for retailers in the US, Canada and the UK. Previously signed affidavits from Diamond and/or DC do NOT qualify retailers for participation. A new signed affidavit is needed to participate. A special item code will be assigned for these copies.  The electronic affidavit may be accessed at the FOC page that includes BLACKEST NIGHT #6. The FOC for BLACKEST NIGHT #6 closes on December 3, 2009. This FOC is for all copies of BLACKEST NIGHT #6, including copies ordered by non-participating retailers.  Qualifying retailers will receive BLACKEST NIGHT #6 on December 23 in separate boxes from the rest of that week's shipment.

Diamond invoices for December 23 will list BLACKEST NIGHT #6 as NOT FOR SALE UNTIL 12/30 BLACKEST NIGHT #6 at zero dollars. BLACKEST NIGHT #6 will appear on January 6 invoices at standard pricing. Retailers may offer BLACKEST NIGHT #6 for sale beginning December 30 at the start of normal business hours.  Retailers with Tuesday delivery privilege will receive a separate reminder to hold BLACKEST NIGHT #6 until December 30. Any violation of this date will forfeit their future Tuesday delivery privileges for at least six months. This remains in force even if their competitors violate the on-sale date.  DC Comics and Diamond will log compliance violations. Participating retailers who follow the December 30 on-sale date and receive no compliance complaints by January 7 will receive a FREE copy of the Diamond Retailer Summit BLACKEST NIGHT #1 Variant Edition or another short print run BLACKEST NIGHT Variant of DC's choosing.  Retailers who do not participate in the program will receive BLACKEST NIGHT #6 on January 6, under a new item code.  This offer applies only to copies of BLACKEST NIGHT #6 ordered by the Final Order Cutoff date of December 3. Only orders placed by FOC will be eligible for early shipping. All orders (including advances and direct ships) placed post-FOC will arrive for January 6, 2010 in-store.  DC Comics and Diamond Comic Distributors will determine eligibility in this program, and may modify the requirements based on business conditions.

THE WONDER WORLOCK FACES 'THE GHOST SHIP OF ABELL 520'
10/31/14 @ 1:32 am EST
Source: ISSUU | Categories: Nova | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Dynamic Forces’ own humble interviewer, Byron Brewer, has a special ghost story for you this Halloween, featuring his longtime space wizard character, The Wonder Worlock!

This cosmic creep trip aboard an apparently derelict starship harkens back to "the things that go bump in the night." Rarely is the Dark Mage uncertain of things, but he is literally lost in space as we join him in his battle with forces beyond his knowledge … or are they?

“The Ghost Ship of Abell 520” starring The Wonder Worlock is written by Brewer with art by Art Lenn, Raz Xion and Darren Blackburn.

All this is part of a Halloween Special edition of Nova 619, the online comic done by Nova fans for Nova fans from around the globe, all working for free for the love of Richard Rider and his cosmic capers.

Nova 619 is a webcomic, heralded into shape by Darren Blackburn and ably supported by a cadre of Nova Cadets who are devoted Nova/Marvel Cosmic fans -- most of whom hang out at the Nova Prime group at Deviant Art.

Set in the post-war cosmic landscape after the original ground-breaking Marvel Comics event, Annihilation, the webcomic charts a different path for Richard Rider, the last Nova Centurion, taking dangling concepts from Annihilation and weaving them into a new path for the Human Rocket to travel down, opening up new stories as well as exploring those "missing pieces" that flew out of the Annihilation War.

Featured alongside Richard 619 (named thus since the Marvel U. has been designated as 616) are some familiar faces: Peter Quill returning as Richard's right-hand man, Emperor Ronan, Gamora, and few favorites from the United Front, some characters from the distant Marvel Cosmic past as well as new original characters, heroes and villains, planets and locations -- all created by the 619 team, who literally span the globe from the Scottish highlands to the tip of the Australian islands.

And for those that know their Nova history, some returning characters from the halcyon days of the 1970s, as well as storylines down the way to try and flesh out Xandarian history.

Since the publication of Guardians of the Galaxy #20, we know the fate of Richard Rider 616. But there is still a light burning bright in Universe 619, and Blackburn and team invite you to join us monthly or thereabouts on the Nova Prime Page, ISSUU and a growing number of sites.

The Nova 619 Halloween Special -- and The Wonder Worlock (not a part of 619, but closely associated with the brand) can be seen by clicking here.

Look for the 619 each month (or thereabouts). Like our Nova 619 salaries, it costs nothing!

“I AM VIBRATING WITH EXCITEMENT AND FEAR…” – NATE COSBY TALKS PRINCE VALIANT

Source: Bleeding Cool | Categories: King Prince Valiant | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


The man behind the relaunch of the Gold Key comics for Dynamite, Nate Cosby, is going to be writing the new take on Prince Valiant as part of the King Features launch next year. Byron Brewer chatted with Cosby about the project and the character.

KingValiant01-Cov-CookeCol



BYRON BREWER: First of all, Nate, I would like to congratulate you on the success of the Gold Key comics, which you edit and package. How does it feel to be part of the rebirth of an iconic comic book universe like Gold Key?

NATE COSBY: Thanks! It’s been a blast. I got to bring in my buddies Greg Pak and Fred Van Lente, got to meet and work with the talented Frank Barbiere, and it’s always an honor anytime y’get to work with Mark Waid. And Mirko Colak, Cory Smith, Roberto Castro, Joe Bennett and Jonathan Lau and several other artists, the colorists and letterer Marshall Dillon, everybody’s been doing great work. I had no real previous knowledge or experience with the Gold Key characters, but I think sometimes it’s good to have fresh eyes on pre-existing characters, and try to recognize what makes characters and worlds tick, what still works, what can be trimmed from history to make the stories seem modern but timeless. Always a fun challenge, especially when you get to work with talented collaborators. I’m very lucky that Dynamite entrusted us with Gold Key.

BB: And now you are participating in this celebration of the 100th anniversary of King Feature Syndicate with Dynamite. Can you tell me how you became involved?

NC: I’m also the packager/editor of the Kings Watch miniseries and the current Flash Gordon series, and when Dynamite told me that more characters in the line might be available, I was foaming at the mouth with excitement. I LOVE all these King characters, and have since I was a kid. We’ve got an excellent opportunity to build and expand the new King line, with the same sense of fun and whimsy established by Jeff Parker, Marc Laming, Jordan Boyd, Evan Shaner, Jordie Bellaire and Simon Bowland in Kings Watch and Flash.

BB: You will be writing the 4-issue mini-series saluting Prince Valiant. Was this your selection, and if so why this character?

NC: Yeah, I was going through the casting process, first by reading some old King comics …like 1930s old. I kept looking through the old Prince Valiant strips, and all these memories of reading them as a kid in the Sunday paper came rushing back, and I looked at this one particular shot of Valiant and just thought, “Val.” I felt shorthand with the guy, and I understood what his goals and weaknesses and strengths were. And then I figured out how he’s gonna ultimately meet up with the rest of the King characters, and from there I felt I could handle the story.Of all the characters, The Phantom is probably my favorite…but Val’s the one I can relate to the most.

BB: Tell us your interpretation of this iconic newspaper comic strip and comic book hero.

NC: Val’s an orphan. A son. A spy. A liar. A hero. A bragger. A prince. A peasant. Brash. Insecure. Resolute. And he will dare ANY adventure.

BB: What type of swashbuckling derring-do will be going on in this storyline?

NC: By Page 2 of Issue #1, Val will already be hip-deep in trouble. He can’t stop fighting for some reason. There’ll be Vikings and savage Britons and lizards and witches and knights and thieves and wizards and demons and pretty much everybody Val meets wants to take a swing at him. And he’s happy to reply in kind.

BB: Tell us a little about the “big-bad” in the mini.

NC: No way! That’d be cheating. I will say that Val’s gonna have his Singing Sword out a LOT. He’s from the times of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table. Plenty of quests and villains for Val to lay low with a grin on his face.

BB: Are you looking forward to working with artist Ron Salas?

NC: No. I am VIBRATING with EXCITEMENT and FEAR to be working with Ron Salas. I’ve worked with him a little in the past, and always been a fan. He’s unbelievably great at picture-drawing. But I really think this is his best work ever. I’m sweating bullets every time I send script to him, worried he’s not gonna like it. But he’s been turning in some gorgeous, gorgeous pages.

BB: I cannot even imagine how Prince Valiant’s book will dovetail with the rest of the King crew in a crossover at the end. Can you enlighten?

NC: I can say…if you pick up the Flash Gordon Annual, you’ll get a glimpse of how Val might be meeting up with the rest of the King’s heroes…and who he might be picking up as a sidekick along the way.

A Kirby creator credit is now appearing on the title pages of Marvel publications. It seems likely that this credit is an outcome of the settlement of litigation between Marvel and the Kirby heirs.

The announcement at the time said that Marvel and the Kirby family were “…looking forward to advancing their shared goal of honoring Mr. Kirby's significant role in Marvel's history."

No formal statement about the new credit line from either party was made,

They’re already invading your favorite comic book titles this November, bringing with them the best and brightest talent in the comic industry. Today, Marvel is proud to announce that the breakout comic book characters of the year – Rocket Raccoon & Groot are coming to one additional, previously unannounced cover in December! That’s right, December’s SPIDER-WOMAN #2 will get the last Rocket Raccoon & Groot variant of the year, courtesy of legendary artist Simone Bianchi!

“We were totally overwhelmed by the response to the Rocket Raccoon & Groot variants when we released them last month,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “When Simone Bianchi said he wanted to do one too, we couldn’t resist! We couldn’t be happier with the stunning cover he turned in.”

Rendered in Simone Bianchi’s unique style, this previously unannounced variant provides a classic homage to the iconic cover to Amazing Spider-Man #129 – starring everyone’s favorite Guardians of the Galaxy! Marvel urges retailers to check their orders on the final Rocket Raccoon & Groot variant of the year when SPIDER-WOMAN #2 hits comic shops in December!

DF REVIEW: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY #20
10/30/14 @ 12:01 pm EST
Source: Dynamic Forces | Categories: Guardians of The Galaxy | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


By BYRON BREWER

Despite all the usual Bendis-bashing on line, Guardians of the Galaxy #20 – the third issue of an Original Sin tie-in that revealed the true fate of Richard Rider and others in the Cancerverse – gave Nova a respectable and honorable “death” and also recalled just the right amount of story threads from Nova and Thanos Imperative to warm the heart of at least this Marvel Cosmic fan.

We have been wondering why we had a snot-nosed kid in a version of a Nova costume – away from Marvel editorial and in the reality of the 616 – and now we know where Richard has gone.

Loved the art this issue, and in the entire trilogy, this time shared by Ed McGuinness (sadly leaving these pages) and Valerio Schiti (welcome aboard). Expressions were right, even Rocket and Groot, and we had some wonderfully angular shots during the pulse-pounding battle scenes.

The final shot of Gamora harkened back in homage to the Vision in The Avengers’ “Even an Android Can Cry.” Classic!

I for one am thankful for this story so now we can tuck DnA into the “great memories” category that holds Thomas, Buscema, Colan & Palmer, King Kirby, Ditko, and perhaps Starlin himself, and move on.

C’mon, “Planet of the Symbiotes” and “Black Vortex”! And thank you, Brian, for a great trio of tie-up tales.
