ANOTHER NEW MUTANTS CASUALTY IN THE WAR OF THE REALMS? [X-MEN #3 SPOILER]06/26/19 @ 5:06 pm EST
Steve Wyatt, a retailer, con-promoter, artist and president of C.A.P.S. (Comic Art Professional Society), is putting together a tribute to Bernie Wrightson.
The idea is to put together a high quality coffee table book featuring some of the top names in the comic industry. You’d see a piece of art by that artist on one side and the other would have their picture and how Bernie was an influence to them. Some of the artists already on board are: Jim Lee, Mike Mignola, Stephen Bissette, Tim Bradstreet, James O’Barr, Simon Bisley, Richard Corben, Mike Kaluta, Frank Cho, Dan Brereton, and Bill Morrison who offered their assistance from the beginning. The forward is to be written by Steve Niles.
The book will be called Nightmares & Dreams; Inspired by Bernie Wrightson
They’re looking to have 100 artists in the book, and while they’ve already got some big names and received some images… they are still looking for more artists to contribute. They’re wish list is over three pages long and includes some amazing names including writers to do written tributes. There are plans for a special edition of the book featuring the signatures of all the artists participating as well as signed prints. These will be used as rewards for the upcoming Kickstarter project.
And after the book is ready, they will be auctioning off the original art with 100% of the proceeds net of the art and book going to Bernie’s wife Liz Wrightson. The idea is to not only help alleviate the strain from Bernie’s medical bills, but also to help Liz keep the legacy of Bernie alive.
The Book: It will be published and distributed by IDW. There will be both a Hardcover for the Kickstarter and a Softcover to be sold thru stores and distributed thru Diamond and IDW. It will be published in a 8 1/2 X 11 vertical format. Each piece of art will be printed on the right page with a picture of the artist and the inspiration/text from the artist under the picture. Thru IDW we also have permission from DC & Dan DiDio to use their properties in the art.
If you are a comic professional and were influenced by the amazing work of Bernie Wrightson, they are still looking for more artists.

episodes that have been announced.

which stars Peck and Romijn. Pellington also used a hashtag in the post, #chabon

'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.
