meets Jeff Vandermeer’s Annihilation
with the mounting terror of a classic Stephen King novel in the forthcoming seriesUnearth
—an all-new horror series from Cullen Bunn, Kyle Strahm, and Baldemar Rivas launching this July from Image Comics.
, a flesh-warping disease ravages a remote village in Mexico and a scientific task force travels to the inhospitable area to investigate the contamination. Tracing the source of the disease to a nearby cave system, the team discovers a bizarre, hostile ecosystem and a supernatural revelation from which they may never escape.
“I feel so lucky to be working with Kyle and Baldemar on this book,” said Bunn. “Kyle and I have such similar sensibilities when it comes to horror, but there are enough differences in our tastes that we challenge each other. And Baldemar! What an amazing talent! And he has helped us to push the boundaries of what this tale of terror is all about. We want this story to be something different and shocking and fun and surprising, and I think we've succeeded!”
Strahm added: "If you like the idea of beautiful horror, Unearth
is the book for you. Baldemar's art is as pretty as it is disturbing. And Cullen always gives the creeps."
Rivas said: "I'm incredibly proud of Unearth
and thrilled to be working with two of the most twisted minds in comics. This book is filled with the most disturbing storytelling that I've ever done, with a perfect balance of grotesque, beautiful, and chilling imagery in each issue. I'm excited to unleash this beast upon the world."
Showcasing the same unsettling pacing of Michael Rutger’s The Anomaly
will provide fans with a new subterranean nightmare that they won’t want to miss.Unearth #1
Cover A by Rivas (Diamond Code MAY190025) and Unearth #1
Cover B by Strahm (Diamond Code MAY190026) will hit comic shops on Wednesday, July 10. The final order cutoff for comic shop retailers is Monday, June 17. Unearth

DYNAMITE: CHAOS! SKETCH CARDS BRING THE HORROR TO KICKSTARTER!06/02/20 @ 4:43 pm EST
In six short months, the rights to Matt Murdock/Daredevil will officially be under the full control of Marvel Studios. What could this mean? Well, it could mean a lot of things — but the implication is that, sooner rather than later, the blind attorney and ninja vigilante will make an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
, the series that ran for three seasons on Netflix, take place in the MCU? Well, yes and no. Like most of Marvel Television's properties — which included Netflix shows like Luke Cage
and Jessica Jones
, ABC's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
, and several others scattered across multiple platforms — the action in Daredevil
was technically supposed to be going down in the same universe in which Iron Man, Captain America, and the rest repelled an alien invasion of New York City in 2012. The logistical difficulties of making sure all of these disparate properties were snugly connected, though, proved to be difficult to overcome. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
managed to maintain its tenuous narrative connection to the films of the MCU for its first three seasons before largely giving up, and when it came to the Netflix shows, any references to the larger universe pretty much came via throwaway lines of dialogue, amounting to little more than lip service. This was in large part due to the fact that Marvel Studios (which produces the movies) and Marvel Television were two separate entities. Now, though, with the TV arm all but totally phased out and the film branch now handling small-screen projects like the MCU-set Disney+ series, future television endeavors are expected to be much more intimately connected with the films.
Under Marvel's agreement with Netflix, none of the main characters of the streamer's Marvel series — Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage,
and Iron Fist
— could be used in any live-action projects for two full years after the cancellation of their respective series. With only six months to go until Marvel is free to bring the Devil of Hell's Kitchen back into the MCU fold in whatever way it sees fit, fans are beginning to wonder exactly what that will look like. Will Daredevil simply be picked up for a fourth season, perhaps for Disney+ or Hulu? Or will he instead get a rebooted series, or even a feature film? Stay tuned. (via Looper

Comics was founded, becoming one of the hottest names in the competitive 1990s comics industry. Their unique concept of essentially taking a shared superhero world, but filling it with vicious, reprehensible, and straight-up evil characters with a horror and metal lens stood them out against the usual spandex. Artwork from legends like Steven Hughes and Ed Benes had fans biting their nails but unable to look away. That legacy continues today, in these sketch cards and beyond.Check out the Kickstarter now!

is a new YA graphic novel being published by Simon & Schuster in the spring of 2022.

‘THE WRETCHED’ REACHES RARE BOX OFFICE MILESTONE SHARED BY ‘BLACK PANTHER’ AND ‘AVATAR’06/01/20 @ 12:40 pm EST
The CW’s The Flash
first teased the introduction of the white-and-gold clad Godspeed during Season 5, when Barry and Iris’ daughter Nora, in the year 2049, bested the sinister speedster with a good amount of help from the imprisoned Eobard Thawne aka Reverse-Flash.
The Season 6 premiere then established that Team Flash in the present day had chased down a total of four Godspeed drones, all of whom were incapable of speaking except in a screeching “modem language.” When the real Godspeed appeared
to show up in this season’s penultimate hour, Barry was able to sideline him with the help of Hartley Rathaway/Pied Piper. Alas, that
was not the real August Heart either
, Barry came to realize.
After all these fake-outs, it would seem The Flash
had teased Godspeed long enough and now is ready to actually play that villainous card. So come Season 7, premiering in early 2021, will Team Flash finally go up against the honest-to-goodness, one true Godspeed?
“Yes, you just might…,'” showrunner Eric Wallace coyly told TVLine
during an end-of-season Q&A session, letting slip a bit of an evil laugh. “Because that’s where we’re going!”

SPACEX’S CREW DRAGON SUCCESSFULLY DOCKS WITH THE SPACE STATION06/01/20 @ 12:25 pm EST
Over the last 23 years, only Titanic, The Sixth Sense, Avatar, Black Panther
and now The Wretched
have topped the box office for five consecutive weekends.
When there is only one movie pulling in anything resembling “business,” at least among studios actually reporting grosses, it’s not hard to be the top movie of a given day or weekend. Nonetheless, happenstance, luck and good (or terrible) timing has left IFC’s The Wretched
as the closest thing to a box office hit this summer. Brett Pierce and Drew T. Pierce’s throwback horror title The Wretched
earned another $181,000 this weekend in 75 theaters. That’s an expansion from 59 theaters (mostly drive-ins) from last weekend, and a 23.4% drop from the previous Fri-Sun frame. For what it’s worth, this is the first weekend where the film has dropped from its previous Fri-Sun gross.The Wretched
, about a young teen who goes to live with his father during a contentious divorce only to stumble onto potentially supernatural shenanigans, opened on May 1 in just 12 theaters, again mostly drive-ins, with $65,908. It earned $69,608 (+5.6%) in weekend two in 19 theaters, $91,975 (+32.1%) in 21 theaters in its third weekend and then $216,288 over the Fri-Sun portion (+135.2%) of its $236.334 Fri-Mon Memorial Day weekend frame in 59 theaters. By this past Thursday, it had earned $659,760 in 28 days of domestic release. (via Forbes

On Sunday morning, SpaceX’s new Crew Dragon capsule successfully docked with the International Space Station, bringing the company’s first crew to the orbiting outpost. Their arrival marks another major milestone for SpaceX’s first crewed mission of the Crew Dragon, which successfully took off Saturday from Cape Canaveral.
Now, the Crew Dragon’s passengers — NASA astronauts Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley — are set to begin an extended stay on board the ISS that could last up to four months. They will join three crew mates already living on board the station: NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy and Russian cosmonauts Anatoly Ivanishin and Ivan Vagner.
The Crew Dragon’s docking showcased one of the biggest features of SpaceX’s capsule: its automated docking system. The vehicle is designed to autonomously approach the ISS and latch on to a standardized docking port, without any input from its human passengers. SpaceX successfully showcased this ability last year when the company sent a test version of the Crew Dragon to the space station without a crew on board. But this time, the company needed to prove that the Crew Dragon could deliver when it had its most precious cargo on board. (via The Verge
