ANOTHER NEW MUTANTS CASUALTY IN THE WAR OF THE REALMS? [X-MEN #3 SPOILER]06/26/19 @ 5:06 pm EST
Convention season is officially underway for 2019, as the doors open to the exhibit hall at Emerald City Comic Con! Lion Forge kicks off day two of the show with the announcement of At the End of Your
Tether, an all-new original series from Adam Smith, V.V. Glass, and Hilary Jenkins, set to debut this June!
It’s 1997 and Ludo is heartbroken. Arlo was the only real bond he had made in a stiff military upbringing. But since a move to a different air base led to their breakup, Ludo has been acting out—fights in school, skipping classes... He feels directionless now, and it's beginning to weigh on him.
News of a trip back to their former home means that he will have to face Arlo at some point, so to ease his nerves, he gives her a quick phone call. Big laughs and a familiar sort of cadence in her voice don't just instantly calm him down -- they make him excited to see her. But when his family shows up at the base the next day, they find out Arlo has been missing…for a week.
Ludo can't figure it all out. He had only spoken to her the night before. Why didn't she say anything about being in danger? Where the hell is she? Ludo sees an opportunity to redeem himself and takes it upon himself to find her. It's the first time since leaving that he feels he has a purpose; something he can fix.
But as Ludo gets further into the investigation, and details of her disappearance begin to surface, he starts to question how well everyone on base, in town, and even he really knew her. Gone without a trace, the girl he once knew everything about has now become a mystery. Where is Arlo Quinones?
“I am a really big fan of a particular sort of coming of age stories. I mean particular in that my favorites have always funneled that experience and feeling into genre in some form or fashion” says writer Adam Smith. “Strange, weird, magical little things that take the experience of growing up and magnify that feeling with classic tropes. That's how At the End of Your Tether began; the idea of a coming of age noir, a crime story that could only be solved by growing up.”
“When Adam brought us At the End of Your Tether, it felt like an opportunity to experiment with the comics medium. How do we bring that feeling you get when you’re reading a book like Blankets to the single-issue format?” says Lion Forge editor Jasmine Amiri. “We thought it’d be appropriate to give this story time to simmer with an oversized single-issue format. But it’s the team that really delivers the magic in this series with Adam’s unparalleled writing-style, beautifully eloquent artwork from V.V. Glass, and insanely gorgeous watercolors from Hilary Jenkins. This one feels special and I couldn’t be prouder of this noir-mystery-incredibly-earnest-love-story and the team that made it possible.”
"What I've found especially exciting in making this is being able to mess with expectation - it's basically a noir story, but in the 90's of all things” says artist V.V. Glass. “The protagonist's a troubled teen who has a fantastic emotionally-supportive relationship with his parents. There's a love interest who'd solely be that in a different story, but not here. It's been great to be able to make the kinds of characters who very rarely pop up in media."
"My love for painting has helped create the unconventional process which i use to color comics” says painter Hilary Jenkins. “Gouache (a matte opaque acrylic) was used to paint this series. Each page is individually painted, scanned and then digitally finished."
At the End of Your Tether will be solicited in Diamond’s April-datedPREVIEWS catalog for release in June 2019. This three-issue limited series features a brand-new expanded 48-page reading experience at a value price of $5.99 and is being offered to retailers as fully returnable. This is the second series in Lion Forge’s new double issue format, which debuts with Palle Schmidt’s Stilettonext month!

'ANNABELLE COMES HOME' RINGS UP $3.5M IN TUESDAY NIGHT PREVIEWS06/26/19 @ 4:07 pm EST
The Flash seems lost in the Speed Force right now on the big screen, as Ezra Miller’s Scarlet Speedster has been AWOL in the DCEU since 2017’s Justice League.
The hero’s solo movie has passed through many different hands since then and recent reports have pointed to Miller himself vacating the role. We Got This Covered’s
been informed by its source that the Warner Bros. is entertaining the idea of introducing Wally West into the DCEU to replace Miller’s Barry Allen. We have to stress that this is just an idea right now and while there’s a chance it could happen, it’s too early to say for sure.
As for the Miller situation, the site reports that the Fantastic Beasts
star’s continued career as the Flash is “up in the air” at the moment and could go either way. It seems the strategy of working Wally into the franchise is being used as a contingency plan just in case Miller does leave. Meaning that if he does depart, don’t expect a new actor as Barry in the DCEU, as the character will likely be swept aside in favor of Wally.

Source: Dynamite | Categories: Dynamite | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment
Vampirella is flying high for her big 50th anniversary! Dynamite proudly announces that the upcoming Vampirella
#1 has blasted through expectations and is a massive success! The upcoming issue by writer Christopher Priest, artist Ergün Gündüz and a range of top tier cover artists fronted by Frank Cho will have an initial print run of 130 thousand copies!
This historic number includes all orders through Diamond, specialty retailers and creator exclusive covers. This incredible sales number is the highest for a full price comic in Dynamite's storied 15 year history. Furthermore, 130 thousand copies is higher than all recorded paid circulation numbers for the original Vampirella magazine - making this possibly also the best selling Vampirella comic book of all time! Dynamite cannot wait to see where things shake out on the charts with such strong offerings from competitors in July!
Dynamite is confident in this blockbuster new series and made the first issue returnable for retailers, which is also continuing for the second issue to allow retailers to order aggressively with minimal risk and maximum reward. Retailers can order without worry and be prepared to serve the needs of Vampirella diehards who go back 50 years themselves as well as the growing crowd of new fans!
"We cannot express enough how appreciative we are for the support from fans, retailers as well as support from retailers outside of the direct market and talent who have created covers for their own sales," said Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher. "We knew we had a great creative team on this title with the incredible Christopher Priest being complemented by the lush art of Ergün Gündüz, and breathtaking covers to match. The 50th Anniversary will only happen once, so everything had to be perfect. Everyone from the creative team, editorial and sales & marketing worked hard together at all levels to make this a success. It's incredibly gratifying to get such a welcoming response back."
Dynamite's team is already working hard to continue this success through the year and moving forward. Vampirella #2 features an eye-popping main cover from Stanley "Artgerm" Lau, perhaps the biggest artist in the industry today. Then the next issue is spearheaded by the iconic J. Scott Campbell. Each issue features additional covers from talented artists as well as top cosplay models. Maybe there will be more Artgerm... Maybe one of the greatest comic artists of all time will bow out with a Vampirella cover as his final work... With the multiple Eisner Award-winning Jordie Bellaire writing the ongoing Vampirella/Red Sonja
and even more surprises in 2019, it's shaking out to be quite the celebration!
Initial orders for Vampirella
#2 are due this Thursday June 27.
