GERARD WAY ON KLAUS’S HOLLYWOOD HIJINKS IN ‘UMBRELLA ACADEMY’ SPINOFF ‘YOU LOOK LIKE DEATH’

With three Umbrella Academy story arcs under his belt, writer Gerard Way is branching out with the series’ very first spinoff, You Look Like Death. The story centers around Klaus/The Séance, perhaps the most troubled member of the Hargreeves brood, who suffers from a horrible drug habit and a supernatural ability to commune with the dead. (Check out the official trailer below.)

After he’s kicked out of the UA mansion by his father, Sir Reginald Hargreeves (aka “The Monocle”), an 18-year-old Klaus heads to Hollywood, where he contends with magical narcotics and a vampiric drug lord. For Way, the glamorous and sun-soaked Tinseltown setting was the perfect place in which to test the troubled young hero.

“Los Angeles is a place where you can very easily lose sight of who you are, and that is what is happening to Klaus in this series,” Way told Forbes. “We see him develop stronger habits and explore more extreme things than he had before. Los Angeles is also a place with a strong dark side, as well as this undercurrent of the occult. It is also a place where somewhat nefarious people transplanted here can more easily thrive and spread out roots, so there’s a good chance Klaus runs the risk of getting chewed up and spit out.”

For this project, Way re-teamed with his Fabulous Killjoys co-writer, Shaun Simon. In terms of artwork, he recruited I.N.J. Culbard (Everything, The New Deadwardians) for the interiors. Way’s Umbrella Academy co-creator, Gabriel Bá, is drawing the covers for each issue, while Nate Piekos (The Umbrella Academy: Hotel Oblivion, Fight Club 3), oversees lettering.

You Look Like Death: Tales From The Umbrella Academy #1 goes on sale Wednesday, Sep. 16. Season 2 of The Umbrella Academy on Netflix premieres this Friday, July 31.

‘THE BOYS’ SPINOFF PUT ON FAST-TRACK DEVELOPMENT AT AMAZON FOLLOWING MOTHERSHIP’S RECORD SEASON 2 LAUNCH

The Boys

Amazon’s superhero series The Boys is getting a spinoff set in superhero college.

The project, written by The Boys executive producer Craig Rosenberg, had been in the works for awhile. It is being fast-tracked in light of the success of the original series’ second season which marked the most-watched global launch of an Amazon Original series ever. The Boys’ first season already had set a high viewership mark for Amazon when it debuted in summer 2019. In its first two weeks, Season 2 has nearly doubled the Season 1 worldwide audience (+89%), drawing millions of new viewers each week.

Set at America’s only college exclusively for young adult superheroes (and run by Vought International), the untitled Boys spinoff is described as an irreverent, R-rated series that explores the lives of hormonal, competitive Supes as they put their physical, sexual, and moral boundaries to the test, competing for the best contracts in the best cities. Part college show, part Hunger Games — with all the heart, satire and raunch of The Boys.

The spinoff is from the entities behind the original series — Amazon Studios and Sony Pictures Television in association with Point Grey Pictures, Kripke Enterprises and Original Film. (via Deadline)

Vault Comics is thrilled to announce two new gorgeous David Mack incentive covers for Giga #1. Mack's cover art will come in two different versions. A regular cover will be available as a 1:15 variant, while a deluxe foil edition printed on thick card stock will be available as a 1:30 variant.

Giga is co-created by writer Alex Paknadel (Empyre: Celestial Messiah, Friendo) and rising star artist John Lê, with colors by Rosh, letters by Aditya Bidikar, and design by Tim Daniel.

Nobody knows why the skyscraper-sized mechs known as 'Giga' fought their bitter, centuries' long war. All they know is that when the fighting finally stopped, the dormant Giga became humanity's new habitat and new gods in one. When disgraced engineer Evan Calhoun finds an apparently murdered Giga, his society and the fascistic tech-centered religious order that controls it are rapidly thrown into chaos.

Giga #1 hits store shelves on October 28th.

Leah-Gibson-Nathan-Owens

Deadline reports that Jessica Jones alumna Leah Gibson and Nathan Owens (Devious Maids) are set for recurring roles on the second season of The CW’s Batwoman. Both will join new lead Javicia Leslie, along with Shivaani Ghai, who also recurs in the superhero series. Season 2 is slated to premiere in January.

Gibson will play Tatiana aka “The Whisper.” She is a skilled assassin, unflappable and cold as ice in the face of danger. She is one of Safiyah’s most important henchwomen and still harbors feelings for her powerful boss.

Owens will portray Ocean, a zen gardner and thinker with a complicated past. A loyal soldier and fighter, Ocean moves to Gotham looking for a new beginning.

As previously announced, Leslie will play new character Ryan Wilder who is about to become Batwoman, succeeding Ruby Rose’s Kate Kane. Batwoman premiered last fall as the first superhero series in television history to feature an avowed LGBTQ character as the central character.
BATGIRL IS FINALLY RETIRING IN DC'S COMIC UNIVERSE

How Batgirl Was Retired to Prepare for The Killing Joke   CBR

Spoilers ahoy for Batgirl #49!

Barbara Gordon has officially quit as Batgirl. (via Screen Rant)

Gordon has always felt like Gotham's most joyful vigilante, fighting crime with an exuberance that's entirely missing from the rest of the Bat-Family. This has frequently made Batgirl comics quite unique, because they've lacked the grim undertones that typically come from Batman and his nearest and dearest.

For all that's the case, though, Barbara has actually paid a heavy price for her good nature. This was best demonstrated in "The Killing Joke," in which the Joker crippled her as part of an insane attempt to break Commissioner Gordon. Barbara refused to let that stop her, reinventing herself as the computer hacker Oracle for a time, and ultimately regaining the use of her legs and taking to Gotham's skies once again. Naturally, the current "Joker War" featured a disturbing rematch between Batgirl and the Joker, with Barbara finally confronting the trauma the Clown Prince of Crime had put her to. Still, she emerged from "Joker War" with a smile on her face once again.

But this week's Batgirl #49, by writer Cecil Castellucci and artist Robbi Rodriguez, sees Barbara confront another traumatic situation. She learns her brother James has succumbed to dissociative identity disorder, and one of his personas is responsible for a spate of Batgirl-themed murders in Gotham. It all ends in a heartbreaking confrontation, with James choosing to commit suicide rather than to allow this shadow to eclipse him. Even more horrifically, former Commissioner Gordon sees James' death and misinterprets it, believing Batgirl to be responsible. The price for heroism has finally become too high, and Batgirl flees the scene of the crime, deciding to quit.

Batgirl #49 is in stores now!

SEGA DEVELOPING MOVIE BASED ON 'YAKUZA' VIDEO GAME WITH 1212, WILD SHEEP

'Yakuza' videogame still

Variety is reporting that Sega is developing a live-action adaptation from its Yakuza video game franchise with 1212 Entertainment and Wild Sheep Content.

Erik Barmack, Roberto Grande and Joshua Long will produce. 1212 and Wild Sheep are searching for writers for the script.

Yakuza is Sega’s bestselling franchise after Sonic The Hedgehog. The game was first released on PlayStation 2 in 2005 and has since grown into a global franchise with an additional seven main title sequels and eight spin-off titles on all major gaming platforms.

The first game follows the story of Kazuma Kiryu being released from a 10-year prison sentence after taking the fall for the murder of his family’s patriarch. After the entire Japanese underworld is pulled into the search for $100 million stolen from the vault of his former clan, Kiryu is forced back into the lawless world of the yakuza.
RED SONJA'S EARLIEST ADVENTURES EXPLORED IN NEW SERIES, 'PRICE OF BLOOD'

Red Sonja swings into her new limited series, The Price of Blood, by Luke Lieberman and Walter Geovani this December.

Red Sonja caretaker Luke Lieberman returns to the fiery-haired heroine for another chapter in her early adventures. He's joined by fan-favorite Sonja artist Walter Geovani (Death-Defying 'Devil, Clean Room) whose prolific work on the character goes back over a decade, most celebrated being his run with Gail Simone. The blood-soaked colors are handled by Adriano Augusto, while the slashing sound effects are brought by Taylor Esposito.

"Sonja has had a really rough road, and it has made her very jaded, so she is searching for the brighter side of life. That is why she is so angry when this moment of happiness and innocence is stolen from her in this series," said writer Luke Lieberman. "The goal with Sonja, as with any good storytelling is to do something different than everything that has come before while staying true to her roots. That is always the balance - between honoring to the history and being open to the future."

"It´s great to be back! I'm always happy and honored to draw such an iconic character," said artist Walter Geovani. "Sonja is a badass, cutting heads off, but she also has an emotional side."



This new series takes place in the months following Lieberman's last saga, Birth of the She-Devil [in paperback now], but can be read completely standalone like any great pulpy sword and sorcery tale. After the brutal events of that story, Sonja is looking to cut loose and drown out all the atrocities she has witnessed with ale. She travels to Aquilonia to attend the Festival of Fire with her new friend Elli.

Though Sonja's escape is destined to be shortlived, as local forces have a starkly different interpretation of the festival's patron god, Mitra. They come in to drench the festival in blood and Sonja finds herself invariably resisting them, and along the way spending time behind bars. Will the She-Devil With a Sword overcome this bloodshed and can she save the lives of those around her?

A pack of five brilliant covers grace the debut issue of this series. Geovani contributes one himself, and is joined by fantasy comics art pioneer Arthur Suydam, Red-regular Joseph Michael Linsner, a fearsome cosplay cover, and last but certainly not least, a ferocious piece by comics legend Michael Golden!




RED SONJA: THE PRICE OF BLOOD #1 is solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ October 2020 Previews catalog, and slated for release in December 2020. Comic book fans are encouraged to preorder copies of the issue with their local comic book retailers. It will also be available for individual customer purchase through digital platforms courtesy of Comixology, Kindle, iBooks, Google Play, Dynamite Digital, ComicsPlus, and more!
