SVENGOOLIE MEETS THE DC UNIVERSE THIS OCTOBER09/20/19 @ 9:03 pm EST
Dynamite announces the second entry in Pierce Brown's Red Rising: Sons of Ares graphic novel trilogy - Volume 2: Wrath!
Creator Pierce Brown returns for this entry, alongside co-writer Rik Hoskin (Brandon Sanderson's White Sand
) and artist Eli Powell (Yakuza Demon Killers
). Toby Cypress (Omega Men, The White Suits
) contributes another beautiful cover. Rounding out the team are colorist Dee Cunniffe (The Wicked + The Divine, Paper Girls
) and letterer Tom Napolitano (Justice League, Aquaman, Red Sonja
). Brown's cosmic tapestry expands further in this chapter continuing the prequel to the New York Times bestselling novel series. Fitchner's quest for revenge continues as he and the Sons of Ares seek out the Golds who have wronged his family. Though their actions will come with repercussions and a back and forth will evolve into battles and the seeds of revolution.
The Red Rising saga depicts a future wherein mankind has explored and expanded across the cosmos. The ruling class has established a rigid caste system based on colors to stratify society, with "Golds" at the top. The eponymous first novel follows the tribulations of a Red joining a resistance movement and infiltrating Gold society to dismantle the entire system. The Sons of Ares graphic novels build the foundation for those threads by depicting the beginnings of their titular rebel organization.
"I’m excited to reunite with Rik to further expand the world of Red Rising, and to see Eli render the seething cities and mythical violence of the Society with his savage inks," said creator and writer Pierce Brown. "This is a tale of madmen and romantics. Fortunately, I’ve got two of the best to help me tell it."
"It's been a pleasure to return to the Red Rising world, with Pierce once again steering the ship," said co-writer Rik Hoskin. "For our second volume, we're bouncing all around the Solar System with Fitchner and the Sons of Ares, with the usual cruelty, mannered snobbery, and violence we've come to expect from this world. It's a whole new story, filling in the background of Ares that was only ever hinted at in the books. So, choose your color and get ready to stand your ground... or be trampled!"
"Pierce is one of the most dedicated, passionate AND successful writers today," said Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO and Publisher. "Not only that, but he has a real love for the comics art form, so it has been a wonderful relationship crafting these stories with him."Pierce Brown's Red Rising Son of Ares Volume 2: Wrath
will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ September 2019 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in November 2019. 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!

‘SUPERGIRL’: MITCH PILEGGI AND CARA BUONO JOIN SEASON 5 CAST09/20/19 @ 8:50 pm EST
DC and MeTV are bringing fans one of the quirkiest pop-culture mashups of all time when SVENGOOLIE MEETS THE DC UNIVERSE, a series of custom inserts featured in DC comic books on sale throughout the month of October. Each two page “chapter” will be written by DC Publisher and Svengoolie super fan Dan DiDio , with an assist from Svengoolie himself, plus art by Chris Jones.
Svengoolie has been a beloved TV staple since the 1970’s, putting a humorous spin on classic science fiction and horror films from Hollywood history. Since 1979, Rich Koz, a.k.a. Svengoolie has entertained legions of sci-fi and horror fans with comedy sketches, jokes and song parodies; the show has become a highlight of MeTV’s line-up, airing Saturday nights at 8PM/7C.
“This is a dream come true for someone who’s been a life-long fan of DC super-heroes since I first got into comics as a kid,” says Koz. “I couldn’t be prouder to have Svengoolie standing side by side with these iconic characters. I definitely identify with them, too; after all, I have to put on my costume before I can do my job, too!”
On the run from (what else?) an army of homicidal rubber chickens, Svengoolie gets some unexpected help from Wonder Woman and John Stewart, who urge him to get to the Hall of Justice. But before he can make it to safety, he has to survive a showdown against the one responsible for these perilous pullets, The Joker!
“I’m a huge fan of classic sci-fi and horror movies and I grew up with Svengoolie,” said DiDio. As a fan and a publisher, I never thought I’d have a chance to have Svengoolie in our books, let alone write the story. This is a fantastic opportunity and I couldn’t be more excited.”
Fans attending New York Comic Con will get a chance to learn more about this comic and celebrate Svengoolie’s 40th anniversary during a special tribute panel hosted by Dan DiDio on Friday, October 4 from 2:45-3:45pmET at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, room 1A24.

reports that Cara Buono (Stranger Things)
and Mitch Pileggi (The X-Files)
have been cast in recurring roles as ancient aliens in the fifth season of Supergirl
, The CW series that returns on Oct. 6.
Buono will recur as Gamemnae, an ancient alien, who with others of her kind, have been safeguarding the Earth from the follies of humanity throughout the ages. Gamemnae’s aim is to use technology to subjegate humans. Gamemnae is cunning, witty, ruthless, and always ten steps ahead of her adversaries. Gamemnae’s agenda puts her into conflict with her would-be allies and on a collision course with Supergirl.
Pileggi will recur as Rama Khan, an ancient alien who is able to control the four ancient elements — fire, water, earth, and air. Arrogant and willful, Rama Khan has been entrusted to use his powers to protect the Earth from mankind for millions of years but now his agenda puts him at odds with Supergirl as well as Lena Luthor.

MARVEL REVEALS OFFICIAL EXCLUSIVE MERCHANDISE FOR NYCC 201909/20/19 @ 8:31 pm EST
After playing Wolverine in nine movies across 17 years, Hugh Jackman established the character as one of the most popular and iconic that the superhero genre has ever seen, with his swansong in Logan
delivering what is arguably one of the best comic book movies ever made. Despite seemingly hanging up the adamantium claws and riding off into the sunset though, there’ve always been rumors that the Australian actor could be tempted to suit up one more time, especially with Marvel Studios now possessing the big screen rights to the X-Men.
The mutants are inevitably going to show up in the Marvel Cinematic Universe at some point in the future, and whoever plays Wolverine will undoubtedly be under the most intense scrutiny given how closely Jackman is linked to the character. That being said, we’re now hearing that the door is still open for the 50 year-old to continue playing Logan once the X-Men join the MCU.
Recent reports indicated that Marvel was looking at adapting the iconic Wolverine vs. Hulk
storyline as one of their upcoming projects and apparently the studio is hoping that Jackman will return for the film. (via We Got This Covered
This has yet to be confirmed by any official sources, so stay tuned!

'CRUELLA': CANNES BEST ACTRESS WINNER EMILY BEECHAM JOINS DISNEY LIVE-ACTION PREQUEL WITH EMMA STONE09/20/19 @ 2:22 pm EST
Marvel’s announcement of Thor: Love and Thunder
at SDCC surprised us all as it was revealed Natalie Portman was returning to the franchise as Jane Foster.
The Oscar-winning actress hasn’t been seen in the MCU since 2013’s Thor: The Dark World –
her Avengers: Endgame
cameo utilized old footage – and given that Ragnarok
moved away from the first two Thor
films, we assumed the fourth one would continue to do its own thing.
However, it’s looking like Portman will be joined by another star of the early movies in Love and Thunder
, as We Got This Covered
is reporting that Kat Dennings will reprise her role as Darcy Lewis in the film.
Sources say that she’ll definitely be back, though the specifics on her part in Taika Waititi’s pic are currently unknown.
