Following in the announcements of "Pacific Rim 2" due out in 2017 and the success of the graphic novel "Pacific Rim: Tales from the Year Zero," Legendary Comics will bepublishing a 4-issue miniseries, "Pacific Rim: Tales from the Drift," starting in November. "Pacific Rim" screenwriter Travis Beacham planned out the story, and Joshua Hale Fialkov will write the series with art by Marcos Marz.

Fialkov at Emerald City Comic Con confirmed tp CBR that the miniseries will be in the continuity of the film, taking place between the events of the graphic novel and the movie.

"It's true to the spirit of the movie," he said, "Guillermo del Toro has been involved every step of the way."

Fialkov said that within the "Pacific Rim" universe, the story in the miniseries is just as important as the film or graphic novel."Pacific Rim: Tales from the Drift" will focus on the Jaeger Tacit Ronin, which was shown briefly in the 2013 film. The story's two pilots will be new characters, and the miniseries will show "the entirety of the relationship, from when they meet, to getting matched up, to how they become pilots," according to the writer.

"The pace of the series means that there will be action in every issue," said Fialkov.

He also revealed that the story is "set in the drift," but said that he could not explain further.

Calling all bookworms! This is a comic right up our alley.

Coming from BOOM! Studios, written by Curt Pires (POP, Mayday) with art by David Rubin, is The Fiction #1.

The story centers around four childhood friends who discover a box of strange books, but not just any books. These books have the power to transport people to the beautiful worlds described within them, when read aloud.

However, most of the time magical things come at some cost. So, when one of the four goes missing, the others vow never to reveal where they’ve been and what they’ve seen. Years later, when one of the remaining kids, now an adult, also mysteriously disappears, it’s up to the last two of the group to dig up their dusty books to find him and finally figure out what happened to their friend all those years ago.

The Fiction #1 is set to release this June.

CAPTAIN MARVEL IN AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON? HERE'S THE LATEST

Source: Cinema Blend | Categories: Captain Marvel | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


At this point we might as well give Captain Marvel the award for Most Rumors Surrounding An Upcoming Marvel Movie Character. Besides speculation over which actress will be playing Carol Danvers in the MCU, there were rumors even before her solo film was announced in October that she would debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron.

Earlier this week, the rumor of her appearing in the May blockbuster’s post-credits sequence rose again, though it was unconfirmed. Now, only days later, another report as come out over a possible appearance, but this time it’s not looking good for the heroine.

Nerdist reports that Carol Danvers will not be appearing in Avengers: Age of Ultron. Host Jessica Chobot acknowledges that the often-mentioned post-credits sequence would be one way we could have seen her, but as it stands now it’s more likely we would see characters like Black Panther, Thanos or even Spider-Man (though that is also a slim possibility) once Avengers: Age of Ultron wraps up.

So if you were looking to see one of Marvel’s most famous female superheroes among the other 11 other officially announced superheroes slated to show up in the movie, you’re likely going to be disappointed, according to this new report.

One persistent claim was that Captain Marvel would be among the new team members that comprise the Avengers 2.0 team after the original team dissolves (as expected). However, she was not included in the recently reported lineup of Captain America, Black Widow, War Machine, Scarlet Witch, Vision and Falcon.

Reality star and bassist for KISS, Gene Simmons, is teaming up with the WWE to launch Erebus Pictures, a company to finance and produce horror films, Erebus being the name of the Greek God of darkness.

“The horror genre continues to fascinate me as it proves to be endlessly thrilling and engaging for audiences,” Simmons said.

The company is starting out with a film called Temple by Matt Savelloni. Temple follows a spec-op team that is trapped inside an isolated military compound when it’s artificial intelligence is suddenly shut down. They are there to discover what killed the team running the facility. And the horror starts there.

Their as of yet unannounced second feature will start production later this year.

"IMAGINE, IF YOU WILL, A WORLD WITH ONLY THREE CHANNELS..." - MARK RAHNER TALKS TWILIGHT ZONE
03/28/15 @ 10:31 am EST
Source: Bleeding Cool | Categories: Dynamite | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


David Avallone, writer of the Altered States: The Shadow one shot, talks with writerMark Rahner about Twilight Zone: Shadow and Substance #3, both on sale now. Covers by Guiu Vilanova, Francesco Francavilla and Jonathan Lau

.TZSS03CovAVilanova

DAVID AVALLONE: Obviously, you’re a big fan ofThe Twilight Zone. How old were you when you saw your first episode? Do you remember what it was? Or what episode first really grabbed you?

MARK RAHNER: I don’t recall discovering The Twilight Zone at any age so much as it always being a presence and shaping my sensibilities. Although when I was a kid in Spokane, one of the TV stations had an annual Golden Days of Television thing, and TZ was always by far the coolest part of that – especially compared to stuff like Leave it to Beaver.Imagine, if you will, a world with only three channels – four, counting PBS – where you have to wait for things to be broadcast, and there’s no home video or internet. Talk about your willing suspension of disbelief.I read all the short story collections when I was young, too. Devoured them. And I can’t be the only one who’s re-purchased Twilight Zone every time there’s a new video format.

DA: Writing the narration… did you hear Rod’s voice? Do you – like so many of the fans, myself included – do a Rod Serling impression?

MR: Not only do I have a Serling impression, but if you search YouTube for “Mark Rahner’s Blight Gallery,” you can see it. But this was more orange-tanned Serling from theNight Gallery days, as a promotion for a horror convention called Crypticon. Occasionally, I’ll lapse into Serling on the talk-radio show I do too. I love him.Anyhow, I do try to channel Serling when I write my narration. I know his bio, his work before and after Twilight Zone, and think I’ve internalized him as much – probably more – than is healthy. You don’t see his likeness, but I hope I can make you hear his voice. It wouldn’t be a Twilight Zone story without that narration.

TZSS03CovBFrancavilla

DA: As you know, TZ used science fiction/fantasy allegory to comment on universal themes and current events. Are you doing that here? And is it a universal theme or current events?

MR: You bet I am. The first story, “Stumbling Distance,” was more of a personal one with some time-travel, but the new one, “Jailbreak,” has plenty to chew on. For starters: How can we be so complacent with all that’s happening around us? And if we do choose to notice, then aren’t we obligated to act?Other TZ stories I’ve done have been very on-the-nose. In “Hangnail on a Monkey’s Paw,” an obvious – and frail – Dick Cheney type is kidnapped by a Middle Eastern ex-detainee who makes a magic wish for him never to die … so he can face charges for war crimes. In “Takers,” an insufferable young senator who wants to slash the social safety net gets whisked back to the Depression-era Dust Bowl.Some people forget (or never knew) what an angry liberal Serling was, and what a Trojan Horse he intended The Twilight Zone to be. Just using it for cute, little morality fables with twist endings would be to dishonor the guy’s massive nerve and how he risked himself.

DA: Aside from Serling and The Twilight Zone, what are your other literary influences?

MR: Too many to boil down. I was such a junkie that I got a couple of lit degrees, then one in philosophy to make myself even less employable! That said, I’ve always loved short stories by Harlan Ellison, Richard Matheson, Ray Bradbury, H.P. Lovecraft, Fredric Brown … and lots more. Short stories are a dead art, and Twilight Zone was a perfect venue for them.

DA: Like me, you had a career before comic books. I was surprised that I found more freedom working in comics than I had in film. What has surprised you?

MR: I was a newspaper guy first – reporter, critic, celebrity interviewer. You can find some evidence of that at www.markrahner.com. Whole different universe, although some skills do translate.What’s surprised me is how great readers are, and how much they remember. Newspaper stories are more or less disposable. But comics become part of people’s libraries, and they remember the stories.I see what you mean about freedom too. You probably know the condition the newspaper industry’s in. I’ll just say that my satisfaction in the funny book field isn’t a huge stretch from Serling’s. Outside of comedy like The Daily Show, there are few other ways to comment truthfully, let alone achieve some wish-fulfillment.

DA: Do you have to fight the urge to avoid Serling-isms like “picture if you will” or “portrait of a man.”, etc? Or do you just go for it sometimes?



TZSS03CovCSubLau

MR: You’ll never see me write “Submitted for your approval” in a comic, or any of his well-known lines. The “imagine, if you will” line above was a meta-wisecrack. But in The Twilight Zone, that crosses into imitation and fan fiction – even self-parody – as far as I’m concerned. My goal’s to write stories, and in a voice, that are utterly faithful to the spirits of Serling and The Twilight Zone, yet original and raw.

DA: In one of the many TZ reboots, they revisited Jerome Bixby’s “It’s A Good Life,” complete with middle-aged Billy Mumy. Is there a story from the original series you’d like to write a sequel to?

MR: I suppose a sequel to “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street” would involve Fox News, right?But no, I’ve never spent one moment wanting to revisit any original TZ story. What would Henry Bemis in “Time Enough At Last” do after his specs broke on the library steps? Would it be like Cormac McCarthy’s The Road? …Seems cheap to me.I can see hitting familiar notes here and there. “Stumbling Distance” is the closest I’ll come, as a tough variation on the theme of “Walking Distance.” I also had one brewing called “Give Til It Hurts” that would have been a very distant cousin to “Night of the Meek.” But if you’re lucky enough, or cursed enough ever to write The Twilight Zone, you’d better have your own stories to tell. And I’ve got plenty.

For the past several days, IDW Publishing Chief Creative Officer and Editor-in-Chief Chris Ryall and "Locke & Key" artist Gabriel Rodríguez have released teaser images on social media for a new comic they're working on together -- a four-issue miniseries titled "Onyx."

Revealed Friday at Emerald City Comicon, "Onyx" is set to debut in July from the team of Ryall and Rodríguez.

Here's the official description: "'Onyx' tells the tale of a female metal-suited warrior who comes to Earth on a quest to either save the planet or destroy it. It’s up to a team of super-soldiers to figure out which before it’s too late, and before a much greater threat overwhelms both them and the planet itself."

"Onyx" will first get a five-page preview in several of IDW's May titles, and is one of five new #1s scheduled for release from the publisher in July.
