MARK WAID INTERVIEWS SHANNON ERIC DENTON ABOUT DOC SAVAGE!
SATURN AWARDS HONOR "CAPTAIN AMERICA," "GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY" WITH MULTIPLE NOMINATIONS03/03/15 @ 8:31 pm EST
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!

THE EXTRA CONTENT IN THE CONVERGENCE TWO-SHOTS FROM DC COMICS03/03/15 @ 7:53 pm EST
In the realm of wildly improbable news, TVLine has a story speculating that Season Three of Arrow
will introduce Damian Wayne as a villain who will then recur through Season Four.The basis for this is that there's a character who is internally being referred to as "Damian Dark," which they TVLine associates with Damian Wayne, son of the Dark Knight.
Here's the word, from their Spoiler column...
"The show’s Season 3 finale will introduce a major, formidable, fierce new foe for Oliver, and his reign of terror will continue well into Season 4. The mysterious character is being referred to internally as “Damian Dark,” which got Matt Mitovich and I (but mostly MM) pulling up and skimming the Wiki page of one Damian Wayne. Get it? Damian Wayne. Son of the Dark Knight. They’d probably have to tweak the Bruce Wayne connection, but it’s a plausible theory, no?"
It's hard to believe that Batman's son wouldn't be part of the Gotham
deal, or just off-limits in general.
That said, a modified version of Damian's story where he's cloned from Arrow instead of Batman could be somewhat plausible, if only for the fact that it would keep up one of Arrow
's favorite tricks, making the drama all about family.That said, anything is possible. While Damian, or a version of him, could be on the way, it's equally likely that another character with a similar set of skills is on the way, and that the Arrow
producers are hindering the speculation a bit by putting the shiny object of Damian in front of anyone who might hear of their plans. After all, Ray Palmer was "Dan," a tech-based superhero that sounded more than a little like Ted Kord.Arrow
returns on March 18.

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 Britannica
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
