'TOM AND JERRY,' 'SCOOBY-DOO' MOVIES LAND TOP TALENT AT WARNER ANIMATION10/15/18 @ 4:55 pm EST
With SPY SEAL on hiatus, critically acclaimed cartoonist Rich Tommaso (SPY SEAL, SHE WOLF, DARK CORRIDOR) will launch DRY COUNTY, an all-new crime series, this March from Image Comics. The next chapter of SPY SEAL, titled Flight of the Golden Bells, will kick off in Fall 2018.
Miami. Late 1990s—but still suffering a hangover from the 1980s. Young Gen-Xer Lou Rossi has fallen for a lady, and fallen hard. So when she goes missing, he’ll have to play amateur detective to get her back.
“Lou Rossi wants to grow up—he's finally of legal age to drink, so all he needs now is a steady day job and a serious relationship,” said Tommaso. “He seems to find the latter in Janet Laughton, while out doing his laundry one night. But the drama that comes with his involvement with her turns his new, ordered lifestyle upside down, having to deal with kidnappers, teenage gangsters, threatening letters, and Janet's dangerous ex-boyfriends.”
DRY COUNTY will launch in March 2018.

VALIANT HEADS ACROSS THE GLOBE TO MCM LONDON COMIC CON AND L.A. COMIC CON IN ONE ACTION-PACKED WEEKEND!10/15/18 @ 5:21 pm EST
BOOM! Studios and Cartoon Network today announced ADVENTURE TIME™: MARCY & SIMON #1 (of 6), kicking off an all-new limited series epic in January 2019. Writer Olivia Olson (Marceline on Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time™) and artist Slimm Fabert (Adventure Time™ comic series) unveil the exciting official comic book continuation of the Emmy® Award-winning Cartoon Network animated series by revealing what’s next for the titular Vampire Queen and the former Ice King
After the events of the Adventure Time™ series finale, Marceline and Simon have finally reunited! Now together, Simon asks Marceline for help in making amends for his time as Ice King, which leads them, Finn, and Jake on an adventure with so many twists and turns, even our skilled heroes have a hard time keeping up!
A modern day fable, the Emmy® Award–winning animated series Adventure Time™ has become a global success since its premiere in 2010, attracting adult and kid viewers in their millions over the course of 10 seasons. It follows unlikely heroes Finn and Jake, buddies who traverse the mystical Land of Ooo and encounter its colorful inhabitants. The best of friends, our heroes always find themselves in the middle of heart-pounding escapades. Finn, a silly kid with an awesome hat and Jake, a brassy dog with a big kind heart, depend on each other through thick and thin. Adventure Time is created by Pendleton Ward and produced at Cartoon Network Studios.
BOOM! Studios has been publishing the New York Times bestselling Adventure Time™ comic books and graphic novels through their KaBOOM! imprint for middle grade readers since 2012 and been honored with Eisner, Harvey, and Diamond Gem Awards for the series.
“Craziness and wonder aside, the best thing about Adventure Time™ is the show’s ability to make you feel,” said writer Olivia Olson. “Great storytelling can punch you in the gut with laughter, tears or ‘Woah, me too.’ Playing Marceline for the past 8 years has taught me a lot about myself. Besides the whole, demon/vampire post-apocalyptic childhood, she and I have all too much in common. Some of that will definitely come out in this series. I want to thank Cartoon Network and BOOM! Studios for the opportunity to keep these characters story going. I hope to do our queen proud and keep the spirit of Adventure Time™ alive undead.”
ADVENTURE TIME™: MARCY & SIMON #1 is Olson’s third writing contribution to the expanded literary world of the eponymous franchise, previously collaborating with her father Martin Olson (the voice of “Hunson Abadeer”) on The Adventure Time™ Encyclopedia. The two also co-authored Adventure Time™: The Enchiridion& Marcy's Super Secret Scrapbook, written from a first person perspective through Marceline's diary entries about when she and Simon first met. Both Adventure Time™books, published in partnership between Abrams and Cartoon Network, are available now everywhere books are sold.
“Marceline's history with the Ice King is honestly my favorite part of Adventure Time™, so I feel very lucky to get to work on a comic that explores their relationship in the present,” said artist Slimm Fabert. “Olivia's script is excellent, and I'm very excited to see where the story goes from here.”
ADVENTURE TIME™: MARCY & SIMON #1 features a main cover by Brittney Williams (Goldie Vance), along with variant covers by Lisa Dubois (Rugrats), Sofie Drozdova (Regular Show) and Ashley Morales.
“There’s a lot of reasons to love the world of Adventure Time™, from the unforgettable adventures to the surprises around every corner, but it’s the characters who leave a permanent mark on every fan. And when it comes to favorites, there’s few more beloved than Marcy and Simon,” said Whitney Leopard, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “It’s an honor to have Olivia, the one and only voice of Marceline, join us to bring these new stories to life exclusively in comic book form alongside the amazing visuals created by Slimm. This series is a treat for everyAdventure Time™ fan who wants to know what happened to Marcy and Simon after the epic Cartoon Network series finale!”

DeadlineBOOM! STUDIOS UNVEILS A NEW LOOK AT FIREFLY #110/15/18 @ 2:15 pm EST
is reporting that actor Ben Aldridge has been cast as the co-lead opposite Jack Bannon in the coming Epix drama series Pennyworth,
centering on the early life of familiar DC character Alfred Pennyworth, Bruce Wayne's butler-to-be.
Aldridge will play Bruce's future father, Thomas Wayne, in the Batman prequel from Gotham
showrunner Bruno Heller, executive producer/director Danny Cannon and Warner Horizon Scripted TV. Sources add this is NOT a prequel for Gotham
despite Heller's involvement.
The 10-episode, hour-long drama series follows Pennyworth (Bannon), a former British SAS soldier in his 20s, who forms a security company and goes to work with a young billionaire Thomas Wayne (Aldridge) in 1960s London.
Aldridge’s Thomas Wayne is reportedly a young, fresh-faced billionaire hailing from the East Coast. Confident and extremely disciplined, this young aristocrat meets an unlikely business partner in Alfred Pennyworth.

ALFRED CAST FOR BATMAN PREQUEL 'PENNYWORTH'10/15/18 @ 2:14 pm EST
#MalCrushMonday returned as BOOM! Studios today unveiled a new look at FIREFLY #1
, arriving in comic book shops on November 14th and bringing the iconic worldwide pop culture phenomenon back to comic books in partnership with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products.
Now get your new look inside FIREFLY #1
, the all-new series revealing the secret Firefly
history that fans have demanded for years! New York Times
best-selling writer Greg Pak (World War Hulk, Mech Cadet Yu
) and artist Dan McDaid (Judge Dredd
), along with series creator & story consultant Joss Whedon (the visionary writer/director behind Buffy The Vampire Slayer
, Marvel’s The Avengers
and more), tell the definitive story of the Unification War, the intergalactic civil war that divided friend and family alike.
“Mal has always been classified as a lovable rogue,” said Jeanine Schaefer, Executive Editor, BOOM! Studios. “But in revealing his past, we’re able to really dissect that, to accept him at his worst as well as his best. Greg and Dan are crafting a story that really springs out of what made the show great: that these characters are complex and flawed, and that their faults make them as much of who they are as their strengths. The war wasn’t kind to Mal, but neither was he kind in it, and it’s going to inform how his crew -- and the reader -- see him.”
Created by Whedon and set 500 years in the future in the wake of a universal civil war,FIREFLY
centers on the crew of Serenity, a small transport spaceship that doesn't have a planet to call home. Captain Malcolm "Mal" Reynolds, a defeated soldier who opposed the unification of the planets by the totalitarian governed Alliance, will undertake any job — legal or not — to stay afloat and keep his crew fed. Thrust together by necessity but staying together out of loyalty, these disparate men and women are seeking adventure and the good life, but face constant challenges on the new frontier, such as avoiding capture by the Alliance, and evading the dangers you find on the fringes of the universe.
Mal thought he could outrun his past, but when a simple mission goes wrong, he’s forced to confront it in the form of the Unificators, mercenaries deputized to hunt down war criminals...and they’ve got Mal and Zoe at the top of their list! War can make villains of even the best men, and Mal’s quest for redemption will put him at odds with his own crew, forcing him to make a choice: fix the past or fight for the future. FIREFLY #1
is available exclusively in comic shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one) on November 14, 2018. This issues features covers from artists Lee Garbett (Skyward
