MARK WAID INTERVIEWS SHANNON ERIC DENTON ABOUT DOC SAVAGE!

MARK WAID INTERVIEWS SHANNON ERIC DENTON ABOUT DOC SAVAGE!

A DYNAMITE.COM EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW!!!

MARK WAID: Prove to me that you love Doc Savage more than I do. This will be harder than you think. Go.

SHANNON ERIC DENTON: I LOVE DOC SAVAGE! (imagine I just yelled that really, really loud…at a Dodgers game…and I everyone is staring but I don’t care. It’s that kinda love.)

MARK WAID: What's your take on Doc? What era are you setting your story in?

SHANNON ERIC DENTON: My story is right at the start of the 1930’s. It’s a moment in time right before the first novel, The Man of Bronze. We’re going to see a slightly less experienced Doc Savage stepping into an adventure that will hopefully lead folks to want to pick up the original novels and the regular Doc Savage series (if they aren’t already)! I hope the readers walk away after reading the issue with as much love and admiration for this character as I have.

MARK WAID: What kind of crazy-ass pulp-fiction menace is he facing?

SHANNON ERIC DENTON: We’ve got a secret league of scientists, a ghost-army, and South American death-temples so I tried to cover the bases! Roberto is probably cursing my name with every panel but I wanted to make sure this issue was epic!

MARK WAID: You're trapped on an island with one of the Fabulous Five, Doc's sidekicks, but NOT Monk or Ham. Which one do you choose, and why?

SHANNON ERIC DENTON: As a professional writer it’d be in my best interest to cheat at this point and establish the lovely Patricia Savage as one of the Fabulous Five! However, in fairness to the question I’d pick Johnny. Not only would all his geology and archaeology skills potentially help out in a stranded-on-a-deserted- island scenario but he was often referred to as the “Professor”…so Mary Ann Summers and Ginger Grant could potentially show up in this imaginary situation as well. I think I hear Jimmy Buffet calling…

MARK WAID: For newer readers, answer this: if you like (blank) and (blank), you'll really like this Doc Savage story.

SHANNON ERIC DENTON: If you really like “superheroes” and “Indiana Jones”, you’ll really like this Doc Savage story!

Longtime ad salesperson and important figure in the history of the geek culture industry Steve Bond is retiring from ICv2 at the end of this month.

Bond came to ICv2 nearly 12 years ago and has been the face of the company to many of its customers ever since. Bond had previously worked at Diamond Comic Distributors, where he developed the first version of Previews in 1988 and then sold ads in it for the following 15 years.

Stephen Amell, <i>Oliver Queen/Arrow</i>, “Arrow,  Coming to Chicago!Stephen Amell plays the title character in the CW’s hit series Arrow, based on the famous DC Comics superhero, The Green Arrow. Known by day as Oliver Queen, the spoiled heir to his tycoon father’s empire, he moonlights as a crime-fighting vigilante, utilizing skills he gained while shipwrecked on a remote island for five years. Arrow’s premiere drew over 4 million viewers, making it the CW’s most watched program in over three years. Throughout its first season, the show continued to be a ratings and critical success.

Previously, Stephen appeared as a series regular on the 3rd season of HBO’s Hung. He played “Jason,” an attractive young busboy who gets recruited into the world of Detroit gigolos. At the same time, Stephen had recurring roles on Fox’s comedy New Girl opposite Zooey Deschanel, as well as a romantic arc with Amy Brenneman as EMT “Scottie” on ABC’s Private Practice.

In 2011, Amell played the role of Joran Van Der Sloot in Lifetime’s Justice for Natalee Holloway, which told the story of Beth Holloway’s quest to bring Joran, the presumed killer of her daughter, to justice. Stephen received praise for his chilling performance as the Dutch sociopath. Other notable appearances include guest-starring roles on CSI: Miami, NCIS:LA, Vampire Diaries, and 90210. In the fall of 2007, Stephen won a Gemini Award for Best Actor in a Guest-Starring Role for his work in Regenesis, a dramatic series on Canada’s The Movie Network.

ash-social

The latest teaser for Starz’s “Ash vs. Evil Dead” series gives fans of the franchise a quick glimpse at what they’ve been hoping for — a look at the 2015 version of protagonist Ash Williams (Bruce Campbell), along with his trusty (and possibly rusty) chainsaw arm.

The 20-second clip focuses on said chainsaw, before cutting to Ash himself, mostly concealed and uttering his classic catchword, “groovy.”

SEELEY PITS "DEADPOOL VS. THANOS"

As longtime comics fans know, the Marvel Universe is home to a seemingly uncountable number of dangerous and mentally imbalanced characters. Of them all, however, only two have been so unhinged that they were able to court the physical personification of Death. One is known for his ability to commit murder on an intergalactic scale and the other is famous for his swift sword and even faster mouth.

And when you're talking about Thanos and Deadpool, you're talking about two characters who would almost certainly hate each other on a nigh-cosmic level, given their differing outlooks on life and their unintentional romantic rivalry.

This September, the Mad Titan's deadly seriousness and the Merc with a Mouth's razor sharp wit clash when they're brought together for a bi-weekly four issue miniseries.

In "Deadpool Vs Thanos," by writer Tim Seeley and artist Elmo Bondoc, the unlikely duo team to rescue their missing ex-girlfriend Death, and restore balance to the universe!
THIEVES STEAL 500 COMICS IN CALGARY SMASH AND GRAB

alpha comics

Thieves broke into Alpha Comics in Calgary, Alberta, early Thursday, and took more than 500 comic books and trade paperbacks, stuffing them in a garbage bag.

Although no high-value comics were stolen, owner Chris Humphries told CTV Calgary the price for that many titles adds up, amounting to a loss of several thousand dollars.

“There was some really cool comics that got stolen, that were written and created by people who are trying to make comics better,” he said. “The dollar value of the individual comics is not very high, actually I sell comics in this store here at the suggested U.S. retail price, so per comic it’s not very expensive, but they took a lot.”

Humphries has posted a list of the stolen titles — they range from Afterlife With Archie to Deadly Class to Fables — in hopes that someone will spot the comics if the culprits try to resell them.

“The three apes that did this threw the comics into a sack,” he wrote on the store’s Facebook page, “so they are most likely damaged.”

He’s already replaced the glass door smashed by the thieves to enter the store, and Alpha Comics was open on Thursday. Although this is the second break-in since January, Humphries said he’s resisting placing bars on the storefront.

“People want to talk about bars,” he wrote on Facebook. “This is actually a topic that’s been talked about in the store a lot since the smash in back in January. The atmosphere and aestheticof Alpha Comics is important. It’s part of it’s identity. I spend 50 hours a week working at Alpha Comics. I CHOOSE to not work behind bars. There are other options I am exploring. Choosing not to have bars doesn’t make it so that Alpha deserved to be broken into and trashed.”
BREAKING: MARGOT ROBBIE'S HARLEY RIDES SOLO IN NEW "SUICIDE SQUAD" PHOTOS

New photos from the increasingly porous Toronto set of Warner Bros/DC Entertainment's"Suicide Squad" film have arrived online, showing star Margot Robbie trading her passenger seat alongside the Joker in for a motorcycle. The photos show Robbie's Harley Quinn (or judging by the clothes, possibly Harleen Quinzel) filming an action scene opposite the Dark Knight in his Batmobile.

Glimpses of another "Suicide Squad" chase scene have trickled in throughout this week as the movie filmed on the streets of Toronto. On Tuesday, the Batmobile gave chase to the Joker's tricked out car. Wednesday offered the first look at Batman himself, hitching a ride on the roof of the Clown Prince's vehicle. On Thursday, we found out what the Dark Knight was trying to accomplish by riding on top of Joker's car: he wants to break in.

"Suicide Squad" is scheduled to open on August 5, 2016.

BREAKING: GUNN DISCUSSES POSSIBILITY OF KANG BATTLING THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
05/29/15 @ 1:04 pm EST
Source: Comic Book Resources | Categories: Guardians of the Galaxy | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


"Avengers" fans hoping to see one of the team's most iconic villains in a Marvel Studios movie had better brace themselves for this news: Kang the Conqueror's film rights are owned by 20th Century Fox, meaning he won't be showing up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe any time soon.

The news broke as part of a Facebook question and answer session held by "Guardians of the Galaxy"director James Gunn. When asked if the time-traveling menace known as Kang would ever go head-to-head with Star-Lord and his pals, Gunn replied, "Shi'ar and Kang are both owned by Fox. All decisions about who is in GotG2 were made a long time ago."

Kang is a time-traveling tyrant possessed of an arsenal filled with weapons and tech from the 40th century that grants him the ability to take on Earth's mightiest heroes without breaking a sweat. He's traveled back to modern day Earth at a number of different points in his life, which has led to him being known as Rama-Tut, Kang, Immortus and Iron Lad.

This movie rights development throws another curve-ball at those trying to figure out which characters belong to each movie studio. The Shi'ar are owned by Fox, as Gunn revealed, which makes sense considering the fact that they are part of the X-Men family. They debuted in the pages of "Uncanny X-Men" and have mostly dealt with the mutants in their almost forty year history. Kang, on the other hand, has primarily been an Avengers villain and debuted in 1964's "Avengers" #8. Kang's time-traveling nature confuses matters even more, since Rama-Tut debuted in the pages of "Fantastic Four"; his other two identities -- Immortus and Iron Lad -- debuted in "Avengers" comics.

When determining where rights fall, it's been a commonly held belief that they are determined by the series/franchise a character debuted in. This theory has been put the test a lot recently, as "Avengers: Age of Ultron" additions Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch both debuted in "X-Men" and "Daredevil" villain Kingpin debuted in "Amazing Spider-Man." Black Panther and the Inhumans, characters with Marvel Studios films slated for release, also debuted in the pages of "Fantastic Four," as did "Guardians of the Galaxy" villain Ronan the Accuser. How Avengers foe Kang the Conqueror ended up at Fox is yet the latest in a long line of movie rights mysteries. (Source: CBR)

The CW has kind of made it’s niche with comic book related series having three DC properties getting renewed and a fourth one on the way.

To help keep the momentum going, the network is running both The Flash season one (which we knew) and Arrow season three in their entirety through the summer hiatus starting this week.

They even put out a video with the slogan Super Starts Here.
