IDW PublishingHARRY STYLES IN TALKS TO PLAY PRINCE ERIC IN DISNEY'S LIVE-ACTION 'LITTLE MERMAID'07/16/19 @ 4:40 pm EST
proudly announces that October’s Star Wars Adventures #27
will debut a three-part storyline telling an untold chapter set between The Last Jedi
and the thrilling conclusion to the Skywalker saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker
Issue #27 will debut a three-part monthly storyline by writer John Barber
and artistDerek Charm
, featuring the mighty Wookiees. With the New Republic devastated, the First Order launches an attack on the planet Kashyyyk, and Chewbacca takes up arms to defend his people!
“It's a thrill and an honor to get to tell this story with the amazing Derek Charm,” says Barber. “Chewie's one of my favorite characters ever, for as long as I can remember. Having the opportunity to tell his story to a new generation of Star Wars
fans – and all this leading up to the conclusion to the Skywalker saga — is one of the biggest thrills of my career.”
Charm says, “I’ve been lucky enough to work within a lot of Star Wars
eras in this series, but doing something in the current, post-Last Jedi
landscape is really exciting. The fact that it focuses on Chewbacca and what he’s been up to between these movies is more so.”
A backup tale by writer Michael Moreci
and artist Tony Fleecs
will see a team-up between the beloved droids of the Star Wars
series – R2-D2, C-3PO, and BB-8 – as they embark on a desperate recruiting campaign for the Resistance.
“What I love so much about this story is that it gives the droids a mission that's specific to who they are as characters and not just droids,” says Moreci. “This is a fun, fun adventure, but I also think it's important to these characters as they, like everyone else, find their way in the galaxy.”
Fleecs says, “I probably don't love anything more than I love Star Wars
– and in particular, the 1985 Droids
cartoon and the accompanying comic book featuring art by the great John Romita Sr. That's the energy I'm bringing to this project – vibes from 1985, Star Comics, John Romita, Nelvana Animation, and Marie Severin, with a healthy dollop of Tony Fleecs thrown in for good measure.” Star Wars Adventures
#27 will feature regular covers by Derek Charm and Tony Fleecs, with a special retailer incentive variant available byManuel Bracchi
For information on how to secure copies of Star Wars Adventures

THRMARVEL WINS COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT LAWSUIT OVER ‘IRON MAN 3’ MOVIE POSTER07/16/19 @ 4:34 pm EST
reports that Harry Styles is the latest actor to go under the sea.
The singer-turned-actor is in early negotiations to play the iconic role of Prince Eric in Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid.
The pic, which is being directed by Rob Marshall, is in the throes of casting, having recently found its Ariel with R&B singer Halle Bailey of Chloe x Halle fame. Melissa McCarthy, Jacob Tremblay and Awkwafina are also in talks to be part of Disney’s world.
Eric is the human prince who catches Ariel's eye. The mermaid saves the prince from drowning and then makes a deal with the sea witch Ursula to exchange her voice for legs in order for a chance to make him love her. He is key in the final battle against Ursula.
The casting of Styles and Bailey show the studio’s intent of making the music a central component of the remake.

VAMPIRELLA ADDS COLLECTIBLE COINS TO BIRTHDAY EXTRAVAGANZA!07/16/19 @ 3:49 pm EST
Marvel Entertainment won a copyright infringement lawsuit on Monday that had claimed the company copied the design of their movie poster for Iron Man 3
from another comic.
Horizon Comics Productions sued Marvel in April 2016 saying the image of Robert Downey Jr. kneeling in his Iron Man suit was copied from an image of their character Caliban, also in a crouched, kneeling position for their comic book series Radix
Horizon claimed in their lawsuit that six Marvel employees were aware of Radix
and the drawing of Caliban, with two who have had a “working relationship” with the comic’s creators, and influenced the designers of the Iron Man 3
However, a U.S. district judge in New York, J. Paul Oetken, wrote in his ruling that “there is virtually no evidence in the record that shows any one of these individuals either would have seen the Caliban Drawing or would have been involved in the ‘Iron Man 3’ Poster design, let alone both.” (via The Wrap
Here are the two images side by side, as recreated in the lawsuit:Marvel Studios/Horizon Comics

STEPHEN KING & OWEN KING’S SLEEPING BEAUTIES COMES TO IDW PUBLISHING07/16/19 @ 3:47 pm EST
Vampirella has dominated the comic book page, and now sets her sights on collectible coins! Dynamite is releasing two coins, and each features a stunning artistic take on Vampirella by top artists Stanley "Artgerm" Lau and Lucio Parrillo!
Dynamite's limited edition coins use an innovative colorization technique over top a base of authentic US John F. Kennedy Half-Dollars plated in real 24-karat gold. Packaged with a full-color Certificate of Authenticity and within an acrylic capsule to protect the coin, this currency is in fact legally able to buy a newspaper or bag of chips - but you won't want to do that!
The coin featuring superstar Lucio Parrillo takes its design from Vampirella (2010) #15, with a classic image of Vampi staring down a skull. One of the hottest artists in comics and pop culture illustration today, Artgerm, has his image originating from Vampirella (2019) #2!
The recommended retail price of these coins are $29.99 each. Though to celebrate Vampirella's big 50th anniversary Dynamite is offering them at a special introductory price of $19.69, denoting the year of Vampi's iconic creation and first appearance.
"In our 15 year history, Dynamite has always strived to offer fans not only the highest quality comic books, but also collectibles of all types," said Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher. "Fans were excited about the Red Sonja coins we offered recently, so we knew had to bring our other flagship heroine to this category, with all of the Vampirella hype around Christopher Priest's series, the Vampirella/Red Sonja ongoing and the just announced Vengeance of Vampirella revival."
The Vampirella Lucio Parrillo Collectible Coin
and Vampirella Artgerm Collectible Coin
will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ July 2019 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in September 2019.

TAIKA WAITITI TO DIRECT 'THOR 4'07/16/19 @ 3:46 pm EST
IDW Publishing is proud to announce the early 2020 launch ofSleeping Beauties
, a captivating comic book series based on the bestselling novel by Stephen King
and Owen King
. Author Rio Youers
(The Forgotten Girl
) and artist Alison Sampson
) will adapt the rich narrative of Sleeping Beauties
to a ten-issue limited series under the watchful gaze of Stephen and Owen.
“We are so excited about Rio and Alison’s vision for Sleeping Beauties
,” says Owen King. “We’ve been fans of Rio’s for years and Alison’s artwork is simply extraordinary. IDW couldn’t have found a better pairing.”
To which co-author Stephen King adds, “We’re looking forward to seeing our work in this exciting format.”Sleeping Beauties
explores a world where women have sunken into a deep, cocooned slumber, their dreams taking them to an idyllic other place. They can only wake if disturbed, which results in violent, feral behavior. Meanwhile, the men have inherited the Earth, their society devolving into barbarism. Provocative and absorbing, Sleeping Beauties
is a gripping dark fantasy of gender dynamics, individuality, and toxic masculinity.
“To work on anything with the King name attached is surreal, dizzying, and somewhat terrifying,” says Youers. “As soon as my feet touch terra firma, I will focus on my goal: to stay true to the novel’s spirit, and to deliver a page-turning, visually impacting experience that will appeal to readers of both Stephen and Owen King’s fiction, and to comics fans the world over.”
“I'm thrilled to be able to work on Sleeping Beauties
,” says Sampson. “The story is very suggestive for interesting art, with magical themes interwoven through a very real place setting in Appalachia, and the opportunity to draw some truly diverse people. Places, spaces, gender, bodies, character, relationships, political themes, emotions, a challenging (and almost certainly innovative) design job, and a great story – it’s all here. I cannot wait to share what we are making.”
“There was something magical about the combination of Stephen King’s and Owen King’s specific skills on the pages of the Sleeping Beauties
novel, an alchemy that resulted in a story so of the moment and yet so timeless,” says IDW President & Publisher, Chris Ryall
. “Rio and Allison are fashioning a graphic retelling that synthesizes that same sense of wonder while very much making the comic its own thing entirely. We’re ecstatic to be doing this with all involved.”

THRWHAT IS DAWN OF X?07/16/19 @ 1:30 pm EST
reports that Taika Waititi is returning to the many worlds of Thor.
Waititi has inked a deal to write and direct a follow-up to his 2017 smash, Thor: Ragnarok.
But his boarding of what would be a fourth installment of the Marvel franchise comes at a cost: Warner Bros.' long-gestating adaptation of Japanese manga Akira.
That project, which was penciled for a May 21, 2021 release and had Waititi testing actors in a worldwide search for talent, is being put on pause indefinitely as the two projects' production dates began to bump up against one another. Script development concerns caused Akira to push back its shooting start, and while some of those have been addressed, say sources, the dates were now too close for comfort.
Chris Hemsworth is expected to reprise his career-defining role as the Asgardian God of Thunder.

Warren Ellis and Bryan Hitch, one of the most legendary creative partnerships in modern comic book history, reunite this fall for The Batman’s Grave
, a twelve-issue monthly DC maxi-series about life, death and the questions most are too afraid to ask. The team that brought us The Authority
now turn their talents towards The World’s Greatest Detective, whose current case forces him to inhabit the mind of a murder victim with a half-eaten face—without filling the empty grave next to those of his parents.
(The Batman's Grave interior art by Bryan Hitch and Kevin Nowlan)
But first, Ellis and Hitch get into the mind of a butler. Once a week, rain or shine, Alfred Pennyworth walks to a little cemetery plot in the Wayne Manor grounds. He meticulously tends to Thomas and Martha’s headstones, plinths and slabs: weeding, cleaning, polishing. But how much longer before there’s another Wayne memorial to tend to?
(The Batman's Grave interior art by Bryan Hitch and Kevin Nowlan)
“My very first work at DC was two issues of Legends of the Dark Knight
,” begins Ellis, “so it’s been twenty-five years since I did a full-length story with the Batman. I’ve decided to revisit the crime scene where my career in American comics began, and I’m so grateful that my old comrade Bryan Hitch is doing this midnight run with me. It’s been too many years since we last did a long campaign together.”
Within this dynamic duo’s new comic lives a Batman with an almost psychotic identification with murder victims. He immerses himself in their lives and obsesses over every detail of their deaths. Even as Batman would process the evidence and approach the perpetrator from one side, he would live inside the life of the victim as they approached their death.
(The Batman's Grave interior art by Bryan Hitch and Kevin Nowlan)
“I’ve drawn some covers and used Batman in Justice League
,” continues Hitch, “but since I read Jim Aparo and Don Newton’s Batman
runs in the 80’s I’ve wanted to do a proper, big Batman story. Fellow Authoritarian Warren Ellis had one to tell, so when he mentioned it I said ‘yes’ before even asking what it was about. That’s what you do when Warren says ‘I’ve got a proper, big Batman story.’ It’s been over twenty years since we changed Superhero comics together, and now we get to give Batman the fight of his life.”The Batman’s Grave
#1, written by Warren Ellis with art by Bryan Hitch and Kevin Nowlan, debuts in comic book stores and online retailers on Wednesday, October 9 with a cover by Hitch and a variant cover by JeeHyung Lee.
