CHRISTINA BLANCH TALKS THE DAMNATION OF CHARLIE WORMWOOD: A DYNAMITE INTERVIEW ON BLEEDING COOL

Almost a month ago it was announced that the Thrillbent webcomic The Damnation of Charlie Wormwood by Christina Blanch, Chris Carr, Chee and Troy Peteri was being collected byDynamite. Now Byron Brewer caught up with Blanch and asked about the transition from digital to print and how it might change things.

Damnation01-Cov-IncenChee

BYRON BREWER: Christina, how did Damnation of Charlie Wormwood make the jump from Thrillbent to Dynamite?


CHRISTINA BLANCH: It’s all thanks to Nick Barrucci of Dynamite. We were chatting at a con and we started talking about the book and he asked when it was coming out in print. I told him we were printing one issue of it just so I would have something to sign at conventions and he was surprised that I hadn’t taken it somewhere. He and I then talked the next and it all just happened. It was amazing, and Dynamite has been wonderful to work with – we couldn’t ask for anything better.

BB: What is it like producing a book for Thrillbent vs. a more mainstream company like Dynamite? Can you explain the process difference to the reader?

CB: The biggiest thing is that now we know that it will be in print so we well keep that in mind when writing and when Chee is drawing. However, we still want to give readers the digital comic experience on the screen so we aren’t really changing too much. The big difference is in the production – taking the pages or the screens as we call them at Thrillbent and turning them into print pages. Our editor Mark Waid has been great in helping to do that and we are learning as we go. I’m sure we will get better at the transformation every issue.Damnation01-Cov-Francavilla

BB: You and Chris Carr have written the property for Thrillbent. Will you both be on the miniseries, and if so how do you share those responsibilities of collaboration?

CB: Nothing will change. The whole creative team that we have on Charlie is so integral to the book that we don’t want to change things. Our creative process is pretty simple but has changed over time. The first few issues we wrote together, in the same room, working through all of it. As time went by and schedules got busier and busier, it was harder to be in the same workspace. We have worked out an outline for each issue and one of us will write the book, the other will approve it, and then we send it to our editor Mark, ho then send it to our incredible artist Chee.For the uninitiated, tell us the concept of the book.wormwood_issue_01Charlie Wormwood is a teacher in the correctional education system aka prison. He isn’t thrilled about it but job in education are not easy to get. He also happens to have a son who has been in and out of the hospital and they really can’t figure out what is wrong with him. With bills piling up, Charlie is offered help from an unexpected source. This is the story of how far someone will go to help their child and how that journey changes that person. I don’t want to give too much away. People have said it has a Breaking Bad vibe which I have to take their word on because I have internationally stayed away from that show so I don’t subconsciously put in a similar storyline. When the book is done and that makes me sad, it will be nice to have Breaking Bad to watch as a treat.

BB: The book is very dark, from what I understand. How do you keep the emphasis on what sacrifices Charlie is making for his sick son?

CB: I’ve heard the book is dark. Some of our readers send me notes asking why I hate Charlie. I don’t hate him. He does have some bad luck. But, the book is called the Damnation of Charlie Wormwood.

The book’s subtitle: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream sums up the surreal drug-fueled bender which sees Thompson analogue Raoul Duke attempting to cover a motorcycle race in Las Vegas with his attorney Dr. Gonzo in tow. The madcap adventure was immortalized in the 1998 Terry Gilliam directed film starring Johnny Depp and Benicio del Toro.

New photos have revealed James McAvoy’s bald head for X-Men: Apocalypse.

McAvoy’s young Charles Xavier has kept his long hair throughout X-Men: First Classand X-Men: Days of Future Past, despite Hank McCoy assuring him that Cerebro would work better on a shaved head. Following Charles’ character arc in Days of Future Past, where he finally accepts and grows into his role as Professor X, his new look will likely serve as an outward sign of his newfound maturity.



Note that the other actors in the photo are not involved with X-Men: Apocalypse. They were part of an interactive, zombie-themed theater experience - The Generation of Z - that McAvoy attended.X-Men: Apocalypse is currently filming in Montreal.

The movie opens in theaters on May 27, 2016.
NEW SPEED RACER SERIES IN THE WORKS

Speed Racer

Tatsunoko Production is developing a rebooted Speed Racer series for the “modern audience,” according to Total Licensing magazine. The new series will be accompanied by a licensing program designed to reintroduce the property.

ANN confirmed the news with Tatsunoko, but no further details about the series format or release were shared.

Tatsunoko regained the rights to Speed Racer from Speed Racer Enterprises in 2011. A lawsuit contesting the rights reversion followed, but was dismissed in 2014.

Originally titled Mach Go Go in Japan, Speed Racer is an automobile racing anime from the 1960s. The series aired in United States in 1967, and is remembered by Western audiences as much for its questionable dubbing as for its high-speed races. A remake, Speed Racer X, aired in 1997, and a series of spinoff shorts, titled Mach Girl, aired in 2008.

Lions Gate produced another remake, Speed Racer: The Next Generation, in 2008. A live action Speed Racer movie, directed by the Wachowkis, was released in the same year.

miracle

One of DC Comics’ New Gods is getting a miraculous make-over this summer.

And if you’re a fan of wordplay and Jack Kirby, you’ll know that it’s Mister Miracle, a.k.a Scott Free. Mister Miracle will sport an updated costume in the upcoming pages ofJustice League, debuting just in time for the title’s Darkseid War event. Designed by series illustrator Jason Fabok, Scott Free's new costume is a slick update on the classic rendition. As Fabok himself put it, his Miracle is “Kirby With a modern twist.” Sounds good to us.

The updated Mister Miracle will join his fellow New Gods for “The Darkseid War,” an epic story that puts Jack Kirby’s Fourth World creations on a collision course with the Anti-Monitor. The story’s first chapter hits in June’s Justice League #41.

Marvel Studios has released a new poster for Ant-Man.

In the new image, Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man surfs on an insect into a hailstorm of bullets. Let’s hope his reflexes are as good as his trademark wit.

BATMAN ATTEMPTS TO APPREHEND JOKER IN NEW "SUICIDE SQUAD" VIDEO
05/28/15 @ 12:11 pm EST
Source: Comic Book Resources | Categories: Batman | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


Just yesterday, the first video from "Suicide Squad's" set featuring the Batmobile surfaced, thusrevealing that the Dark Knight will play a part in the upcoming Warner Bros./DC Entertainmentfeature film. Now, thanks to new fan shot footage, we know that not only will the Batmobile be featured in David Ayer's supervillain team-up movie, but so will Batman himself. The action-packed -- at least compared to most other fan videos -- clip features a capeless Batman riding on top of Joker's flashy car as it takes a sharp turn.

Here's the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V2hCJ2oqjUc

Considering how risky this stunt looks, odds are that's not Ben Affleck in the cowl in the above video. The actor has not yet officially been connected to "Suicide Squad," although it wasrumored that he was on set at the start of May.

Additionally, a pair of pics of both Joker's car and the Batmobile have been uploaded to Imgur.



There's also another video featuring the Batmobile in action; you can see the iconic super-car peel out in pursuit of the Joker at the video's halfway mark.

And the Batmobile video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yW241nBStHs
ED PISKOR’S ‘HOP HOP FAMILY TREE’ TO BECOME MONTHLY COMIC

hip-hop-header

Ed Piskor’s bestselling book series Hip Hop Family Tree will released beginning in August as a monthly comic, a first for Fantagraphics Books. Each issue will feature a new cover and splash page, “director’s commentary” from Piskor and other extras.

Debuting in 2013, the Eisner-nominated series chronicles the history of hip hop, tracing the genre back to its origins in the South Bronx. The 32-page first issue shines a spotlight on those break-dancers, graffiti artists, DJs and MCs who formed hip-hop culture in the early 1970s.

In another first for the 39-year-old publisher, Hip Hop Family Tree will also feature exclusive variant covers produced for retailers that order more than 1,000 copies. Each inspired by the design of Marvel’s 25th anniversary covers published in 1986, and features a different figure from the history of hip hop.

“If you would have told me a year ago that we were going to publish a monthly comic book for the first time ever, with variant covers no less, I would have made a face,” Associate Publisher Eric Reynolds said in a statement. “But Ed is a singular talent, and Hip Hop Family Tree has proven to be a singular property. When Ed first floated the idea of a comic book series, we jumped. I knew he could pull it off in the way that few ever could.”
