Meanwhile, the gravity of Sir Isaac Newton’s actions reverberates in the present day — and puts him on a collision course with the Avengers!

nWay Announces Power Rangers: Legacy Wars Partnership with BOOM! Studios for Massive Content Update, Including Lord Drakkon and Black Dragon

First Comics News - Tue, 07/18/2017 - 17:00

BOOM! Studios’ record-breaking Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comic comes to video games for the first time

 

SAN FRANCISCO, CA July 18, 2017 – Synchronous multiplayer fighting game developer nWay and comic book publisher BOOM! Studios today announced the first video game appearance for characters from the top-selling Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comics in Power Rangers: Legacy Wars.

 

After an in-game update going live later this week, Lord Drakkon – the first new official Mighty Morphin Power Ranger created in over 20 years – and Black Dragon will appear as playable warriors in the smash-hit mobile game, along with various in-game updates and feature additions.

 

“We love how BOOM! Studios has taken the Power Rangers story to unprecedented and mature places, and now we’re bringing the characters to a new realm with their first appearance in a video game,” said Taehoon Kim, CEO, nWay. “Partnering with them to bring in Lord Drakkon and Black Dragon is the perfect way to bolster Power Rangers: Legacy Wars’ roster with next-level evil warriors!”

 

Powers Rangers: Legacy Wars marks the first time that the all-new canonical creations from BOOM! Studios’ Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comics ventured beyond the two-dimensional page,” said Filip Sablik, President of Publishing & Marketing, BOOM! Studios. “As an avid player of this amazing game, I couldn’t be more thrilled to be partnering with the team at nWay and our friends at Saban Brands and Lionsgate to unleash these two villains!”

 

Lord Drakkon is an intensely evil version of Tommy Oliver from an alternate universe who rules his Earth with dystopian philosophies. Lord Drakkon first appeared in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #9 from BOOM! Studios. Black Dragon is a powerful Zord from an alternate universe that’s come to destroy Tommy Oliver.  Black Dragon first appeared in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #4 from BOOM! Studios. Their debut in the game marks the first time either character has appeared outside of the comic book series.

 

In the update, players can also experience some of the most requested features and tweaks, such as:

  • Challenge Mode – Compete in a series of battles using a group of your teams and reach the maximum number of wins before losing three matches in order to win huge prizes.
  • Talents System – Upgrade your warriors with passive abilities that provide bonus damage and attributes.

 

Full details on the incoming fighters and updates can be found here: http://playlegacywars.com/1-4-patch-notes/

Fans looking to get their Power Rangers: Legacy Wars fix this week at Comic-Con International: San Diego have a couple of options:

  • BOOM! Studios and nWay will be revealing more information and a closer look at the characters in action later this week during the BOOM!

First Comics News - Mon, 07/17/2017 - 20:35

 

Four New Comics Series and New Editions of “Incognegro” and “The Originals” are First in Karen Berger’s Imprint Line

MILWAUKIE, Ore., (July 17, 2017)—In early 2017, Dark Horse announced Berger Books, a new line of creator-owned comic books and graphic novels, from Karen Berger, the legendary, award-winning comic book editor and founder of DC Comics’ influential imprint Vertigo. Today, Dark Horse is pleased to reveal the new imprint’s premiere titles. Berger Books will release four new comics series, each to be later collected as a graphic novel: Hungry Ghosts by Anthony Bourdain and Joel Rose; Incognegro: Renaissance by Mat Johnson and Warren Pleece; Mata Hari by Emma Beeby and Ariela Kristantina, and The Seeds by Ann Nocenti and David Aja. Berger Books will also publish a tenth-anniversary edition of Incognegro: A Graphic Mystery by Mat Johnson and Warren Pleece and The Originals: The Essential Edition by Dave Gibbons.

Author, chef and Emmy award-winning television star Anthony Bourdain (Parts UnknownKitchen Confidential) and acclaimed writer Joel Rose (Get Jiro!; Kill, KillFaster, Faster) tell haunting tales of terror, irritable spirits, and horribly strange beings in Hungry Ghosts, a four-issue anthology series including art by Vanesa Del Rey, Leo Manco, Alberto Ponticelli, Paul Pope, and Mateus Santolouco. Inspired by the Japanese Edo Period game Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai or 100 Candles, played by samurai warriors to test their courage, Hungry Ghosts reimagines this classic game of dread and terror as a circle of international chefs invoke modern tales of horror, terrifying yokaiyorei, and obake, all with the common thread of food. Hungry Ghosts #1 goes on sale January 31, 2018.

Acclaimed novelist Mat Johnson (Loving DayPym) and veteran artist Warren Pleece (The InvisiblesLife Sucks) reunite for Incognegro: Renaissance, a new prequel series that follows cub reporter Zane Pinchback through the glittering nightlife of the Harlem Renaissance as he goes undercover, passing as white, for the first time. The first issue (of five) goes on sale February 7, 2018. This new series is a perfect companion to the tenth-anniversary edition of the 2008 Vertigo graphic novel, Incognegro: A Graphic MysteryIncognegro: A Graphic Mystery features enhanced toned art, an afterword by Mat Johnson, character sketches, and other additional material. Incognegro: A Graphic Mystery finds Zane Pinchback, a reporter for the New York-based New Holland Herald, sent to investigate the arrest of his own brother, charged with the brutal murder of a white woman in Mississippi.

Breakout talent, writer Emma Beeby (Judge Dredd) and artist Ariela Kristantina (InSEXts) join together for a new five-issue series based on the controversial and historical figure, Mata Hari. Mata Hari is notorious as the original “stripper-spy”: exotic dancer, convicted double agent, and femme fatale. Executed by a French firing squad in 1917, many have since questioned the conviction. A century after her death, Mata Hari tells her story through fictional diary excerpts, drawn from biographies of the real woman whose past has been shrouded in mystery by both the lies of her accusers and the outlandish stories she told about herself. The first issue of Mata Hari goes on sale February 21, 2018.

Award-winning artist David Aja (Hawkeye, Immortal Iron Fist) and filmmaker, journalist and writer Ann Nocenti (DaredevilCatwoman) team up for The Seeds, a new four-issue series. In an imminent America where fact-based reporting is gasping its last breath, an idealistic journalist stumbles into the story of a lifetime, only to realize that she can’t report it. Instead, she has to pitch the biggest myth of her career. An eco-fiction tech-thriller where flora and fauna have begun to mutate, The Seeds is also a story of love beyond race and gender, and of the resilience of both human and animal kind. The first issue of The Seeds goes on sale March 28, 2018.

The Originals: The Essential Edition is an oversized new edition of Vertigo’s 2004 Eisner award-winning graphic novel from comics legend, Dave Gibbons (WatchmenMartha Washington). In a retro-futuristic city of industrial gray where hover scooters, music, and drugs rule the street, The Originals are the toughest, most stylish gang around. For two childhood friends, nothing is more important than being one of them, but being part of the crowd will bring its own deadly consequences. This new edition includes 32 pages of never-before-seen development art, process pieces, and behind the scenes extras—all annotated by Gibbons. The Originals: The Essential Edition goes on sale April 18, 2018.

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif., (July 17 2017)—On the heels of their “Umbrella Academy” series pick-up on Netflix, Universal Cable Productions and Dark Horse Entertainment have renewed their first-look deal to continue developing and producing scripted programming from the distinguished publisher’s comic book library, as well as new original material. UCP continues to roll out its impressive genre development slate with Dark Horse Entertainment’s “Mind MGMT,” from Matt Kindt, to be developed for TV by Dan Cerone (“The Blacklist”); “Flutter” based on Jennie Wood’s acclaimed LGBTQ comic, being adapted by Katherine Lindberg and Marc Rosen (“Sense8”); “Tanis,” based on the hit podcast, to be developed by Lee Shipman (“The Son”) and Terry Miles, creator of the podcast, and produced by Sam Raimi (“Evil Dead”) and Debbie Liebling (“South Park”) through their company POD 3; and “The Bright Sessions” being adapted for television by Gabrielle G. Stanton (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “The Flash”) and the creator and star of the podcast, Lauren Shippen.

“Dark Horse Entertainment is a comic mastermind with deep knowledge of the genre and an expertise in developing content” said Dawn Olmstead, Executive Vice President of Development, Universal Cable Productions. “We’re excited to continue to partner with Mike Richardson and Keith Goldberg as we kick off our series Umbrella Academy on Netflix and shepherd the many adaptions we have set up around town.”

“Dark Horse is proud to continue its partnership with Universal Cable Productions. Our companies have worked together closely with great success.

“Tanis,” is based on the serialized, bi-weekly podcast. The series follows Nic Silver on his search to unravel what he thinks might be the last great mystery of the internet age. “Tanis” is what happens when the lines of science and fiction start to blur. Lee Shipman (“The Son”) is attached to adapt with podcast creator Terry Miles. Sam Raimi (“Evil Dead”) and Debbie Liebling (“South Park”) will produce through their company POD 3, along with Dark Horse.

“The Bright Sessions,” is a science fiction drama that follows a mysterious therapist and her unique set of patients, each struggling with a supernatural ability. Created and written by Lauren Shippen, the podcast has been downloaded over 6 million times in under 2 years and was widely recognized as one of the best podcasts of 2016. The development for television is being written by Gabrielle G. Stanton (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “The Flash”) and Shippen.

The studio and publisher previously announced the active development of “Harrow County,” based on the comic book written by Cullen Bunn (“The Damned,” “The Sixth Gun”) and illustrated by Tyler Crook (“Bad Blood”), and the Eisner award-winning “Concrete” from comic legend Paul Chadwick.

“Mind MGMT,” “Flutter,” “Tanis” and “The Bright Sessions” are the latest additions to UCP’s impressive genre development slate, including two projects from John Carpenter’s recently announced overall deal “Tales for a Halloween Night” for SYFY and “Nightside.” In addition to the recent series pick-up of “Umbrella Academy” on Netflix with Dark Horse, UCP is currently in various stages of production and script development on a range of series including: “Happy!” for SYFY; “The Sinner,” “Damnation,” and “Unsolved: The Murders of Tupac and The Notorious B.I.G” for USA Network; “The Purge” for USA Network and SYFY; “All That Glitters” for Bravo; and “Impulse” for YouTube Red.

Hip-Hop Megastars Rae Sremmurd Team with Valiant Entertainment for SHADOWMAN/RAE SREMMURD #1 – Coming in October!

First Comics News - Mon, 07/17/2017 - 20:25

Valiant Entertainment is proud to announce SHADOWMAN/RAE SREMMURD #1 – a standalone comics crossover event bringing the multi-platinum hip-hop superstars behind the #1 hit “Black Beatles” into the Valiant Universe for an unforgettable showdown at the crossroads of life and death!

Written by rising star Eliot Rahal (BLOODSHOT’S DAY OFF) with fully painted artwork by renowned artist Renato Guedes (Wolverine), Valiant’s supernatural superhero icon collides with two of the most influential artists in hip-hop today as Shadowman and Rae Sremmurd come face-to-face to forge a new legend of fame, fortune, and magic…

“Comic books are a form of entertainment. I get to make all the sounds and effects in my head. It’s just like you use your imagination – you go through the pictures and the pictures are always awesome. It’s like an escape from reality,” said Rae Sremmurd’s Slim Jxmmi. “Valiant – they have really good storylines. The art is always on point. I never know what to expect. X-O Manowar is one of my favorites. The Delinquents is cool. Bloodshot is fucking awesome. I love Valiant.

Shadowman is crazy,” he added. “It has a lot of twists and turns. It keeps me involved and interested. I can’t even take my eyes off of Shadowman when I read it. I have to finish the book.”

Before they were dominating the music charts and selling out stages worldwide, Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee were just a pair of talented, but otherwise ordinary, brothers…until a twist of fate delivered them fame and wealth beyond their wildest imaginations. Now, years later as hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd, the brothers are bound for New Orleans…and an otherworldly encounter with the supernatural guardian called Shadowman, the lone line of defense between our world and the Deadside that lies beyond…

“Valiant has a long history of massive, real-world guest stars. Shadowman’s classic appearance alongside Aerosmith, for instance, was a defining moment in the history of Valiant, and we’ve been waiting to find the right partnership to bring that legacy into the modern day,” said Valiant CEO & Chief Creative Officer Dinesh Shamdasani. “Rae Sremmurd are huge comic books fans, and everyone here at Valiant is a huge fan of their music. The combination of their talents, along with those of Eliot Rahal and Renato Guedes – two creators that we’re very excited about – feels like a project that will take fans and readers by surprise. And we owe a huge thanks to Vinny Kumar and Empire for helping put this together.”

Since the debut of their first hit single “No Flex Zone” in 2014, Mississippi-based duo Rae Sremmurd – comprised of brothers Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee – have emerged as one of the most successful and influential hip-hop groups of their generation. Their full-length debut, 2015’s SremmLife, was certified platinum and produced collaborations with Nicki Minaj and Young Thug alongside multiple hit singles. The subsequent follow-up, 2016’s SremmLife 2, was an even greater success and became an international, multiplatinum sensation with the hit single “Black Beatles” – produced by Mike WiLL Made It and featuring Gucci Mane – earning the group their first #1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. In addition to massive radio play and more than 500 million views for the song’s music video on YouTube, “Black Beatles” also became the soundtrack for the viral phenomenon known as the “Mannequin Challenge” and endures as one of the decade’s most successful crossover hits from a new artist. To date, Rae Sremmurd has been awarded or nominated for some of the most prestigious awards in hip-hop and is currently in the midst of a worldwide tour that will culminate at Lollapalooza in Chicago, IL this August.

From his first appearance in 1992 onward, Shadowman has stood at the forefront of Valiant’s shared superhero universe as one of the publisher’s most perpetually popular and demanded characters. With sales of more than 5.5 million in comics and graphic novels, Shadowman was also the basis of a blockbuster video game franchise from Acclaim Entertainment and, most recently, it was announced that Oscar nominee Reginald Hudlin (Marshall) would direct the upcoming Shadowman feature film from a script by screenwriters Adam Simon (Salem) and J. Michael Straczynski (Thor, World War Z). In the wake of his appearance in SHADOWMAN/RAE SREMMURD #1, Shadowman will return to the Valiant Universe on an ongoing basis with a new monthly series that is set to debut on March 28th, 2018.
