Source: Sequart Organization | Categories: MIsc | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment



Sequart has published dozens of books and movies.

Today, here are a couple that address comics legend Alan Moore.




Minutes to Midnight: Twelve Essays on Watchmen, edited by Richard Bensam,examines Watchmen from a variety of perspectives to uncover surprising answers to many questions. What does it reveal about the history of scientific theory? How is the atom bombing of Hiroshima refracted through its pages? Does Watchmen’s murder mystery measure up to the standards of Raymond Chandler? Is the depiction of Rorschach an unfair caricature of the philosophy of Steve Ditko? Where are the secrets of Captain Metropolis and the Minutemen revealed? Was the Comedian right all along? Who shouldn’t read Watchmen? What are the limits of Watchmenand do they extend beyond a major motion picture?

No matter how well you know the story, you’re sure to learn something new about Watchmen here.

The book runs a comfy 180 pages. It's available in print and on Kindle. (Just a reminder: you don’t need a Kindle device to read Kindle-formatted books; you can download a free Kindle reader for most computers, phones, and tablets.)



And the Universe So Big: Understanding Batman: The Killing Joke, by Julian Darius, examines it in the context of the high-art ambitions of 1980s super-hero comics, exposing the narrative’s ambiguities and secrets.

The book has received widespread media coverage, having been discussed by Kevin Smith, Grant Morrison, Will Brooker, and many others. It's an easy 58 pages and is available in print and on Kindle.

SCOTT DERRICKSON RETURNING TO DIRECT 'DOCTOR STRANGE' SEQUEL
12/11/18 @ 7:54 pm EST
Source: Hollywood Reporter | Categories: Marvel | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


When it comes to negotiations, they're in the endgame now.

THR reports exclusively that Scott Derrickson, who directed and co-wrote the mystical Marvel hero Dr. Strange's initial 2016 outing, has quietly finalized a deal to helm the new installment.

A search for a writer to pen the script is about to get underway.

Benedict Cumberbatch will return as Stephen Strange, the good doctor turned master of the mystic arts, as will Benedict Wong, who played his right-hand man, Wong. Rachel McAdams, who played Stephen Strange’s love interest, is likely to return as well.

Strange was last seen de-materializing in Avenger: Infinity War, where one of his lines of dialogue served as the inspiration for the title of the fourth Avengers movie, Avengers: Endgame.

We're down to just 48 hours left on our Dejah Thoris Sketch Cards Kickstarter campaign! Thanks to passionate sketch card and Edgar Rice Burroughs/Barsoom fans like you guys, we were able to blast past our funding goal! But there's still plenty of time for stragglers to jump on board!

The Dejah Thoris Sketch Cards Kickstarter can be found here: 100 Years of Dejah Thoris Collectible Sketch Cards

We just recently added a new reward tier for the diehard card collectors. In our prior sketch card campaign, we offered a reward level with two full boxes of cards and fans have been asking for that same offer on this campaign. For the cherry on top, we've gone back through the Dynamite trading card archives and found some unique and rare high-quality trading cards that we feel makes the 24 foil packs an even better deal!

By backing two full boxes, backers will not only receive ALL prior rewards of sketch cards and puzzle sets, but they also now receive TWO additional rare trading card collectibles! A 9-card puzzle set from a classic Vampirella trading card set AND a Kick Ass movie "costume piece" trading card with an actual piece from the movie costume mounted inside.

Definitely worth highlighting for Dejah Thoris fans are the discounted graphic novels and the beautiful Art of Dejah Thoris deluxe hardcover. Including the most recent trade paperback from the just wrapped fan favorite run from Amy Chu and Pasquale Qualano, with a stunning J. Scott Campbell cover.

The sketch card selection features some of the best in the biz, like Ken Haeser, Marcia Dye, Helga Wojik, Gordon Purcell, Andy Bohn, Brent Scotchmer, Daniel Gorman, Karl Jones, Rich Molinelli, Wilson Ramos Jr, and more! See below for some samples.

Our previous line of sketch cards sold out BEFORE they went on sale in stores so lock down your cards now!

BULLY, BRAWLER, MERCENARY, SPIES: MARVEL’S HOTTEST TEAM IS HERE

Domino. Black Widow. White Fox. Atlas Bear. Outlaw. Diamondback. This March, Marvel invites you to meet a dangerous crew of international women – the newest group of hot shots to enter the Marvel Universe! Celebrated DOMINO creative team Gail Simone (Birds of Prey) and David Baldeon (Spirits of Vengeance) are bringing you an all-new story filled with feisty femme fatales, intense action, mercenary adventures, and espionage.

“So, it’s like this,” teased series writer Gail Simone. “Marvel came and said they love the team aspect of DOMINO and want to expand it even further. They said, you get to keep writing your favorite Marvel ladies, with your favorite Marvel artist, but on top of that, you get to ADD MORE AMAZING CHARACTERS YOU LOVE. It took about two seconds for me to say, ‘I’m IN, I AM SO IN.’”

“Is it just me or is it getting hot in here? Marvel’s greatest femmes fatale assembled for a very specific mission (if they don’t kill each other first, natch!),” added series editor Chris Robinson. “After launching DOMINO to huge acclaim earlier this year, I’m absolutely thrilled to have Gail and David bringing the HOTSHOTS into the Marvel Universe (and our hearts!)”

“Domino feels she has to grow up a little, and some of the new agents have virtually NO sense of humor. And they find an object that is something very close to the heart of the entire Marvel Universe,” said Simone. “The only problem is EVERYBODY wants it. We’re having a blast. It’s Domino, but with a bunch of the coolest characters in comics, kicking international covert butt and taking names. Best of all, it’s drawn by the incredible David Baldeon. This is the stuff I most love writing, and David is THE guy to draw it all and make it brilliant. I couldn’t be happier. Where do we go from here? THE HOTSHOTS AIN’T TELLING.”

Who are the hotshots? Find out this March, when DOMINO: HOTSHOTS #1 hits local comic stores!

Source: IDW | Categories: IDW | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment
IDW Games and Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. announced today that they have partnered to bring Metal Gear Solid to the tabletop with Metal Gear Solid: The Board Game.

Designed by Emerson Matsuuchi (designer of the Century game series, Reef, and Specter Ops)Metal Gear Solid: The Board Game is a fully cooperative, miniatures board game. Following the story of the first Metal Gear Solid video game, players take on the roles of Solid Snake, Meryl Silverburgh, Dr. Hal “Otacon” Emmerich, and Gray Fox the Cyborg Ninja. They’ll need to use their unique skill sets to avoid detection as they complete objectives across multiple campaign scenarios. Featuring a highly dynamic A.I. system and sandbox gameplay, missions can be completed in multiple ways and will always play out differently.

Jerry Bennington, IDW Publishing’s VP of New Product Development says, “Having partnered with Konami in the past to adapt Metal Gear Solid into comics and produce all new stories in the Silent Hilluniverse, we are extremely excited to be partnering again to bring Metal Gear Solid to a new gaming medium: tabletop. We know this a beloved franchise with a die-hard fan base, and as such we’re putting all of our energy into producing a premium gaming experience that is exciting to play over and over again.”

Game designer Emerson Matsuuchi says, “I’m probably the biggest fan of Metal Gear Solid. Ever since playing the first Metal Gear Solid, it has forever altered the way I view games. The story it told was so memorable and the gameplay experience so rich that it has shaped my expectation of games as both a designer and gamer. So the opportunity to bring this masterpiece to the table has been an honor and dream come true. I’m excited to be able to capture the tactical stealth action that is the hallmark of the franchise as well as create a new experience and story for the Snake fans. Age hasn’t slowed him down one bit.”

Metal Gear Solid: The Board Game will feature miniatures by the highly regarded sculptor Francesco Orrù, and art from lifelong Metal Gear Solid fan and comic artist Kenneth Loh.

Gaming media interested in playing Metal Gear Solid: The Board Game will get their first chance at E3 2019.

IDW LAUNCHES KICKSTARTER FOR FULL BLEED VOL. 3: HEAVY ROTATION
12/11/18 @ 2:21 pm EST
Source: IDW | Categories: IDW | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment


IDW Publishing is launching a Kickstarter for the third volume of FULL BLEED, the acclaimed print-only 200-page hardcover magazine. When funded on Kickstarter, FULL BLEED VOL. 3: HEAVY ROTATION will include a cornucopia of features, including a provocative and long-lost interview with bestselling comic book writer Grant Morrison, discussing his feud with writer Alan Moore; a conversation between music legends Metallica’s Kirk Hammett and Anthrax’s Scott Ian; interviews with with comic book legend Geof Darrow, and contributions by Julia Alekseyeva, Abdulkareem Baba Aminu, Peter Bagge, Tini Howard, Gideon Kendall, Roger Langridge, Joe Lansdale, Erin Nations, Benjamin Percy, Jon Raymond, Sara Richard, Vivek J. Tiwary, Noah Van Sciver; Shannon Wheeler, and many more.

FULL BLEED is curated and edited by IDW Publishing’s Dirk Wood, alongside IDW Publishing Former CEO/Founder Ted Adams. When funded through Kickstarter, pledges will be delivered to backers next year. The FULL BLEED Kickstarter campaign is live as of Tuesday, December 11th and runs for 30 days.

“FULL BLEED is like Rolling Stone, the old Comics Journals, and an art book had a baby,” said Creative Director Dirk Wood, “We’re so proud to bring this baby into the world and now we’re coming to you. In days of yore, when running a magazine, one had to rely on two important sources of revenue — advertising and subscriptions.The bottom line is FULL BLEED is 100% ad free. To realistically sustain a publication of this magnitude, reaching out directly to fans is necessary. Kickstarter provides us the opportunity to interact with prospective readers, not compromise on quality, and remain free of advertising. So tell your friends.”

“FULL BLEED #1 was a hell of a book,” said LOCKE & KEY writer Joe Hill. “ I’m excited to see the series continue. Jump in. The water’s great.”

By merging the best in comics, fiction, non-fiction, deep dive interviews, opinion, history, think-pieces and more, FULL BLEED is a reading experience like no other, and a beautiful addition to any bookshelf. Looking through an international lens, but filtered through the unique perspective of the IDW:PDX satellite office in Portland Oregon, FULL BLEED tackles all aspects of the creative culture, and beyond — comics, music, film, tv, fine art, photography, design, politics and more. FULL BLEED seeks total diversity: diversity in content, diversity in creators and contributors, diversity in genre.
