Limited Tickets for the Live Outdoor Aug. 27 AEW Dynamite On-Sale Tomorrow Friday Aug 21, 10am EST

First Comics News - Fri, 08/21/2020 - 03:32

August 20, 2020 All Elite Wrestling (AEW) announced it will host limited, ticketed crowds of 10-15 percent capacity for its live shows at the open-air Daily’s Place amphitheater in Jacksonville, Fla., starting on Thursday, Aug. 27.  To safely bring back the energy of a live audience to AEW’s shows — in compliance with state and local regulations and CDC guidelines — a select number of physically distanced seating pods will be available for sale in groups of two, three, four and six around the outdoor venue. For the first ticketed show on Aug. 27, a maximum crowd of 10 percent capacity will be permitted. Going forward, as long as safety protocols are followed meticulously, a maximum crowd of 15 percent capacity will be permitted for all live events at Daily’s Place.

Limited tickets to attend the Aug. 27 DYNAMITE show, airing on TNT, will go on sale tomorrow, Friday, Aug. 21, at 10 a.m. ET via AEWTIX.com and Ticketmaster.com.  Tickets start at $30 (not including service charges or fees).

Guests will be required to wear face coverings that cover the nose and mouth, and to physically distance from any person who is not a member of their pod. Guests will also be asked not to attend the day of the show if they have COVID-19, symptoms of COVID-19 or have had close contact exposure to someone who they know has COVID-19 or symptoms. In addition, all guests will have their temperature scanned prior to entry. An increased number of hand sanitizing stations will be available, and floor markings will also be used to assist with physical distancing. Industrial fans were also added this past year to further improve air circulation at the open-air venue.

As a further safeguard, all tickets will be mobile and may only be purchased online at AEWTIX.com and Ticketmaster.com (no box office sales). Daily’s Place will also transition to cashless payment and mobile ordering for most transactions, including food and merchandise purchases.

“We’ve missed the incredible energy of our fans at shows, and from what we’ve heard from them, they’ve missed being with us. With our enhanced safety measures and outdoor venue, we look forward to welcoming our fans back to become part of the action in-person,” said Tony Khan, AEW President and CEO.

“Please be assured, we are mindful and respectful of the situation,“ Khan added. “The health and safety of our AEW family and our fans remains our highest priority. Our leadership team and medical staff have adjusted our operations for limited, physically distanced fans in an outdoor, open-air setting in compliance with the most current state and local regulations and CDC guidelines. We can’t wait for the August 27 DYNAMITE, as the road to ALL OUT will represent the beginning of a new chapter in AEW history.“

Note: Due to the NBA‘s schedule on TNT, the Wednesday, Aug. 26, episode of DYNAMITE will air on Thursday, Aug. 27, at 8pm ET.

First Comics News - Thu, 08/20/2020 - 23:54

PORTLAND, Ore. 08/20/2020 — The fan favorite science fiction/action series Protector by writers Simon Roy (Prophet) and Sideways Award-winning author Daniel M. Bensen (Junction) team up with artists Artyom Trakhanov (Undertow), Jason Wordie (God Country), and Hassan Otsmane-elhaou (Red Sonja) will be collected into trade paperback with a sharp new title—First Knife—from Image Comics this October.

“The new title gives a better feel for the universe in which we have so many stories to tell,” said Trakhanov.

First Knife is an environmental sci-fi adventure that’s equal parts Conan the Barbarian, Nausicaä, and Zardoz. In the hot ruins of far-future North America, a slave stumbles across an ancient and bloody power. A conqueror bargains with godlike beings. A soldier tries to bring back his lost world. As the full moon approaches, the remaining humans of Earth find themselves standing between the forces that once nearly destroyed it. A post-apocalyptic, yet hopeful story, First Knife will collect issues #1-5 of the Protector series.

First Knife trade paperback (Diamond Code JUL200063, ISBN 9781534316423) will be available at comic book shops on Wednesday, October 7 and in bookstores on Tuesday, October 13. It can be pre-ordered at your local comic book shop or independent bookstore via Bookshop or IndieBound, or it can be pre-ordered on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, and Indigo.

Alexi has worn many titles, including husband to Natasha, but while the Widow played her avenging games, the Red Guardian waited in the shadows. Now a new day is dawning — and this time, no one will stand in his way.

Star Trek Ranger: Romulan Encounter

Sorcerer's Skull - Thu, 08/20/2020 - 11:00

Player Characters:
The Crew of the USS Ranger, Federation scout ship:
Aaron as Lt., j.g. Cayson Randolph, Operations Officer
Andrea as Capt. Ada Greer
Billy as Lt. Cmdt. Sobek, Ship's Counselor
Dennis as Lt. Osvaldo Marquez, Medical Officer
Paul as Cmdr. D.K. Mohan, Chief Helmsman

Synposis: After capturing the Romulans planetside, the away team beams back to the ship to find they have just received a distress call from the Burnell. It's systems are failing and it's running out of time. A painstaking search of the nebula brings them to the warp shuttle--and none to soon because its power is failing and life-support with it. Before they can rescue the crew, the Romulan cruiser Veritex uncloaks and demands they turn over everything they have on the energy weapon on the planet!
Not eager to fight, the Ranger crew negotiates an exchange with the Romulan commander: the Ranger lowers it's shields and beams over the Burnell's crew, while the Romulan's transporter their captured shuttle crew off the Ranger.

Commentary: While I was all set to run a space combat here, the players took the Star Trekian way out and found a nonviolent solution. Mohan's skill at persuasion proved extremely useful as did the ship's counselor Sobek's unexpected acumen with the sensors.
The Romulan vessel was a V-9 temar vastaram "Night Flyer" cruiser, from the FASA Romulan supplement. The Burnell was also a type of ship FASA created: the Pulsar Class warp shuttle.

Wild Wild West Wednesday

Sorcerer's Skull - Wed, 08/19/2020 - 11:00


This is your periodic reminder that my review of the high points of the Wild Wild West television series from the 1960s, aided by Jim "Flashback Universe" Shelley continues on the Flashback Universe Blog under the Wild Wild West label. A new installment is up today.

Insurgent Middle Earth

Sorcerer's Skull - Mon, 08/17/2020 - 11:00

If we take The Silmarillion as Elvish mythology (which it is), then most of the doings in Middle Earth are a proxy conflict between two super-powers: Sauron and his minions and the Valar and the Elves. We needn't assume either side is particularly good, In fact, we know the Valar unleashed a devastating weapon of mass destruction against their former allies in Numenor just for getting to cozy with Sauron.

In the modern era, Sauron's forces have been engaged in a protracted occupation of  Eriador. Through the action of the Mordor proxy Angmar, the Western kingdoms of Man were shattered, much of the population fled south, but fanatical bands, the Rangers, structured around the heir to throne of Arnor and Gondor, and supported by the Elves, continued to fight an insurgency against Mordor's Orcish forces and her allies.

Sauron has been a distant and not terribly effective leader for sometime. He has been unable to consolidate Angmar's victory over Arnor (a victory that saw Angmar destroyed in the process) and unable to wipe out the remaining Elvish enclaves and human insurgents.

You get the idea. Shorn of much of it's epic fantasy trappings, Middle Earth becomes a grittier place, where Men, Orcs, and local Elves, are all dealing with the aftermath of a terrible war wrought by super-powers that they perhaps only have the smallest of stakes in, but yet are forced to take most of the risk.

Seems like an interesting place to adventure. 

Spelljammer Revisted: Wings Between Worlds

Sorcerer's Skull - Fri, 08/14/2020 - 11:00
Occasionally I forget I had actually written a post as opposed to just having the idea, but this one I did write in 2018. It is relevant I think as another perspective on my recent Spelljammer considerations.

Because space-faring sailing ships are so 80s, let's have genuine aircraft flying between worlds, perhaps open cockpit, certainly of the bat-winged, Frazetta variety. Space will have to have air, of course. Let's say the system is enclosed in a big Dyson Sphere--a crystal sphere, if you like. With a sphere full of air, the temperature of the worlds at the various orbits will be of less concern, though where the warmth and the light comes from will have to wait.

The technology of the primary society might be what we would call Dieselpunk, except it isn't particularly punk or Diesel, but it's that between the Wars era, sort of art deco stuff filtered through science fiction. Automobiles out of Flash Gordon and that sort of thing. And, of course magic.


Might as well port in a little bit of Planescape and have the worlds be more a more pulp planet version of the Gygaxian planes. The full compliment of D&D races would be necessary for a Star Wars Cantina vibe. Flash Gordon will help there, too.  The worlds might move in very eccentric orbits. Travel between them might mostly be by sight rather than map.

(LEGO) Star Wars Holiday Special Coming In November

First Comics News - Thu, 08/13/2020 - 17:59

This holiday season, Disney+ invites LEGO and Star Wars fans to Chewbacca’s homeworld of Kashyyyk for a Wookiee-sized celebration of the galaxy’s most cheerful and magical holiday, Life Day, in the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special, premiering exclusively on the service on Tuesday, November 17.

“The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special” reunites Rey, Finn, Poe, Chewie, Rose and the droids for a joyous feast on Life Day, a holiday first introduced in the 1978 “Star Wars Holiday Special.” The new LEGO special is the first to debut on Disney+ and will continue the rich legacy of collaboration between Lucasfilm and LEGO—playful adventures told in the endearingly irreverent way that only LEGO Star Wars cobranded content can.

Directly following the events of “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” Rey leaves her friends to prepare for Life Day as she sets off on a new adventure with BB-8 to gain a deeper knowledge of the Force. At a mysterious Jedi Temple, she is hurled into a cross-timeline adventure through beloved moments in Star Wars cinematic history, coming into contact with Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Yoda, Obi-Wan and other iconic heroes and villains from all nine Skywalker saga films. But will she make it back in time for the Life Day feast and learn the true meaning of holiday spirit?

The adventure continues at home with the release of the LEGO Star Wars Advent Calendar. Available September 1, the Advent Calendar was designed in concert with the development and production of the show and features holiday themed characters from the special. DK will also release the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Sticker Book which lets brick fans stick instead of click.

Comic Book Cats, number 25: Final Crisis: Rage of the Red Lanterns

First Comics News - Thu, 08/13/2020 - 15:49

Comic Book Cats, number 25: Final Crisis: Rage of the Red Lanterns, penciled by Shane Davis, inked by Sandra Hope, written by Geoff Johns, lettered by Rob Leigh and colored by Nei Ruffino, published by DC Comics in December 2008.

I’ve never been fond of the whole “Rainbow Lanterns” thing, but we did get at least one interesting character out of that storyline: Dex-Starr, an Earth-born domestic cat who gained a Red Lantern power ring and became an extremely violent, dangerous entity. Dex-Starr was based on penciler Shane Davis’ own cat Dexter. Geoff Johns has described Dex-Starr as “the most sadistic and malicious of the Red Lanterns.”

Dex-Starr has proven to have appeal outside of comic books, appearing in the Justice League Action and DC Super Hero Girls animated series and the video games LEGO Batman 3 and LEGO DC Super-Villains. Dex-Starr even got his own plush toy, because nothing says “homicidal rage” quite like a cuddly stuffed animal.

I Love Comics (Blah, Blah, Blah…)

First Comics News - Thu, 08/13/2020 - 15:46
NEW COMICS 4 THIS WEEK (08/12/20) *All comics will be rated on a scale from 1 to 10* Adventureman # 3 Amazing Spider-Man # 46 Batman & The Outsiders # 15 Dark Nights: Death Metal # 3 Detective Comics # 1025 The Flash # 759 Hawkman # 26 Immortal Hulk # 36 Star Wars: Darth Vader # 4 Wonder Woman # 760 Amazing Spider-Man # 46 – It looks like part two of “Sins Rising” is starting to get intense as Spidey comes off as a secondary character when it’s The Sin Eater who takes down The Lethal Legion and what was very interesting to me was how the reappearance of The Sin Eater has Spidey shocked since he wasn’t on his game when it came to taking down The Legion and the witness accounts of the events was a nice touch to give the story more weight plus, I’m really liking the concept of Sin Eater being back so while this installment of Sins Rising may or may not be to everyone’s liking but it does help the built to the next chapter so that’s a good thing. Detective Comics # 1025- This is a fantastic tie in to “Joker War” and I really enjoyed seeing Batman and Batwoman team up (Reminded me of James Tynion IV’s run of Detective); So that team-up really help make this issue so great and the action sequences were top-notch (Ya gotta love Tomasi’s writing!) and Kenneth Rocafort’s art is really looking very polished (Unlike his early days when he could have benefited with an inker); So for me, I would love for Peter J. Tomasi to stay on Detective forever as his Batman stories would make Dennis O’Neil and Doug Moench very proud. The Flash # 759- This issue kicks off the first chapter of “Finish Line” which is the beginning of Joshua Williamson’s final arc for the series (He’s been writing Flash since 2016) and just WOW!!… Williamson just came out the gate with a unique twist on the Flash/Reserve Flash feud as the latter has taken over Barry Allen’s body and trapped him in The Speed Force and I know, this concept has been done before (“Superior Spider-Man”, anyone?!) but after reading this, it really does look like Williamson is having a blast writing this and I enjoyed the appearance of Impulse and the ending (**NO SPOILERS**) will appease a ton of Flash fans so this arc looks very promising. Wonder Woman # 760 – Mariko Tamaki and Mikel Janin’s run is continuing to be very exciting as I really liked seeing Maxwell Lord back in the fold and mix in the mind control aspect of the story and this arc, even though it’s the second part of it, is delivering on all ends when it comes to the excitement and the twist and turns so this is the perfect time to be a Wonder Woman fan. Well, that’s it for me. Thanks for sticking around and I will see you all next time.

NAIL IN THE COFFIN: The Fall & Rise of Vampiro

First Comics News - Thu, 08/13/2020 - 14:48

NAIL IN THE COFFIN:

The Fall and Rise of Vampiro

Screening in Limited Theaters

Friday, September 4, 2020

Available on VOD/Digital

Tuesday, September 8, 2020

Directed by: Michael Paszt

Featuring: Professional Wrestler Ian Hodgkinson (Vampiro)

and Dasha Hodgkinson

Semi-retired professional wrestler Ian Hodgkinson reveals the harsh realities behind the glamour of being in the world of wrestling as the infamous ‘Vampiro’. A Lucha Libre legend, Hodgkinson tells the astonishing story about his meteoric rise to fame in the 90’s and how it almost killed him. Yet none of that was as back-breaking as his current life – working behind-the-scenes as the Director of Talent for Lucha Libre AAA in Mexico City and Lucha Underground in Los Angeles, while simultaneously raising his teenage daughter Dasha in remote Northern Canada as a single parent.

Unlike many professional wrestling documentaries before, director Michael Paszt has constructed a fascinating and heartfelt look at a wrestler who has overcome and continues to battle with physical injuries, sexual abuse, and drug addiction. Not to mention the wild stories of working for Milli Vanilli, and wrestling alongside the punk rock band The Misfits – Vampiro’s stories are multi-faceted and completely enthralling.

Told through an engrossing collection of home videos and personal interviews with his closest friends and family, NAIL IN THE COFFIN is an intimate and genuine look into a single father grappling with fame, the pressures of professional and personal responsibilities, and his own mortality.

NAIL IN THE COFFIN celebrated its world premiere at Fantastic Fest in 2019, coming out with raving reviews. The film will be releasing in limited theaters on Friday, September 4, 2020 and will be available on major VOD/Digital platforms beginning Tuesday, September 8, 2020.

“NAIL IN THE COFFIN: The Fall and Rise of Vampiro is an incredibly inspirational true story that shows us no matter how many times life tries to beat you down and break you apart, you need to rise up and conquer your demons in order to survive,” says Patrick Ewald, CEO of Epic Pictures (U.S. Distribution). “And now, as we are faced with incredible challenges all around us, I can’t think of a more relevant film to remind us of the resiliency and power of the human spirit.”

RT: 88min | Not Yet Rated

Genre: Documentary | Canada

NAIL IN THE COFFIN is directed by Michael Paszt. Produced by Pasha Patriki and Paszt, associate producer Maye Ornelas and executive produced by Gregor Habsburg, Jacquelyn Frisco, Ian Hodgkinson, Marisela Peña, Dorain Roldån, James Fler, and Andrew Thomas Hunt. Cinematography by Patriki, and edited by Danny Palmer.
