But he is not forgotten. Not by the people he’s saved. Mary Jerez, is one of those people. The Shadow saved her from a horrifying school shooting – Mary knows all too well what evil lurks in the hearts of men.

So when a horribly burnt man – incredibly strong and fierce, despite his terrible injuries— arrives under her care as a resident at the hospital – she believes she knows who he is, too. Is this mysterious man actually the Shadow – and with Mary’s help, will evil-doers again know what it means to fear his terrible justice?

Si Spurrier (X-Force, X-Men: Legacy, Judge Dredd) and Daniel HDR (Superman, Cyborg) bring the pulp icon into modern day in a tale full of deadly intrigue, gun-blazing action, and a study of the nature of evil!

Netflix Acquires Millarworld

First Comics News - Mon, 08/07/2017 - 14:30
Comics Legend Mark Millar Joins Forces With the Leading Global Internet Entertainment Platform to Blow Minds Everywhere.

Hollywood Ca. August 7, 2017-Netflix Inc. announced today it acquired Millarworld, the comic book publishing powerhouse founded by Mark Millar, the legendary creator of such iconic characters and stories as Kick-Ass, Kingsman, and Old Man Logan, and one of the most important voices in comics.

Together, Netflix and Millar will bring Millarworld’s portfolio of critically and fan-acclaimed character franchises to life through films, series and kids’ shows available exclusively to Netflix members globally. Millarworld will also continue to create and publish new stories and character franchises under the Netflix label.

The acquisition, the first ever by Netflix, is a natural progression in the company’s effort to work directly with prolific and skilled creators and to acquire intellectual property and ownership of stories featuring compelling characters and timeless, interwoven fictional worlds. Terms of the transaction weren’t disclosed.

“As creator and re-inventor of some of the most memorable stories and characters in recent history, ranging from Marvel’s The Avengers to Millarworld’s Kick-Ass, Kingsman, Wanted and Reborn franchises, Mark is as close as you can get to a modern day Stan Lee,” said Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos. “We can’t wait to harness the creative power of Millarworld to Netflix and start a new era in global storytelling.”

“This is only the third time in history a major comic book company has been purchased at this level,” said Millar. “I’m so in love with what Netflix is doing and excited by their plans. Netflix is the future and Millarworld couldn’t have a better home.”

Millar, who runs Millarworld with his wife Lucy Millar, is one of the most consistent hitmakers in the graphic novel and comics world. In his eight years at Marvel, he developed the comic books and story arcs that inspired the first Avengers movie, Captain America: Civil War, and Logan (Wolverine), which collectively grossed over $3 billion in worldwide box office. Since Millarworld was started, the company and its co-creators have given birth to eighteen published character worlds, of which three, Wanted, Kick-Ass and Kingsman, have yielded theatrical films that together have grossed nearly $1 billion in global box office.

“Mark has created a next-generation comics universe, full of indelible characters living in situations people around the world can identify easily with,” added Sarandos. “We look forward to creating new Netflix Originals from several existing franchises as well as new super-hero, anti-hero, fantasy, sci-fi and horror stories Mark and his team will continue to create and publish.”

ART’S REVIEWS: “The Strange Harvest of Dr. Aquarius” By Jeff Deischer

First Comics News - Mon, 08/07/2017 - 14:15

August 28, 2017 is the 100th birthday of the legendary comic author and artist Jack Kirby.  Jack had a long career in comics from the 1940s onwards.  During that tie he created and collaborated on several of the most memorable comic book characters including superheroes and supervillains including: Captain America, Blue Bolt, the Boy Explorers, The Fighting American, The Fantastic Four, Darkseid, and many others. Writer and scholar Jeff Deischer has written a novel incorporating several of Kirby’s characters in the public domain to a crossover story taking place in the early 1960s which respects the original character lines and carries them forward.  This is a tribute to Jack Kirby and his genius carrying forward his legacy.

 

This is a volume that comic fans and anyone who enjoys superheroes cannot afford to miss!  As usual, Jeff provides detailed information on the creative process underlying the story and a chronology of the events taking place. Take a trip to yesteryear when Jack Kirby ruled as king of the comics and revel in his creations.

PRINCELESS: RAVEN, THE PIRATE PRINCESS YEAR 2 #1 preview

First Comics News - Mon, 08/07/2017 - 06:59

PRINCELESS: RAVEN, THE PIRATE PRINCESS YEAR 2 #1

Writer(s): Jeremy Whitley
Artist Name(s): Xenia Pamfil
Cover Artist(s): Xenia Pamfil
32 pgs./ A / FC
$3.99

RAVEN is a pirate revenge adventure, a soap opera full of messy teenage love stories, and about a dozen coming of age stories set on the high seas. Think “Legend of Korra” at sea with an all female cast.

This series has one of the most diverse and exciting casts of any comic on the market. It’s full of action, adventure, and revenge – but even more full of love stories and soap operas. RAVEN is one of the first YA comics with an openly gay leading lady. But on top of that it has a cast of women who represent a wide spectrum of the LGBTQ community. It’s equal parts soap opera and actual opera.

Writer Jeremy Whitley hopes readers experience “Joy, connection, and love” when reading this book. He goes on to say that “It’s a book where different types of people are heroes than what we’re used to, especially in YA fiction. I feel like everybody should be able to find at least one character they either relate to or fall in love with in the pages of this book.”

Jeremy Whitley follows up by saying, “RAVEN: PIRATE PRINCESS is back and it’s bigger, more action packed, and packed full of feels than ever. This is the perfect place to pick the series back up or jump on for the first time! We can’t wait to be back to talking to you about it on twitter!”

PRINCELESS: RAVEN, THE PIRATE PRINCESS YEAR 2 #1 will be available in comic book stores on October 18. Preorder with Diamond item code AUG171072. Party with the heroines of RAVEN in this dance sequence from pages 9-13 in the first issue of YEAR TWO:

RICH REVIEWS: The Cross-Eyed Mutt

First Comics News - Mon, 08/07/2017 - 00:59

Title: The Cross-Eyed Mutt (GN)
Publisher: NBM
Written and Drawn by: Etienne Davodeau
Price: $ 24.99 US
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Website: www.nbmpub.com
Comments: Fabien and Mathilde are going to meet her family. Fabien works as Customer Service and Security Guard at the Louvre. Fabien is asked to place a value on an old painting. The painting is striking.
The black and white art illustrates the characters as normal everyday people. The T&A makes this a mature title. The scenery in the backgrounds is wonderfully drawn.
Fabien and Mathilde are perfect for each other. Mathilde’s family are a little weird but nice. They like Fabien to.
Things get strange when the Republic of the Louvre is brought to light while still staying in the shadows. We are asked the question how does a painting get hung in the Louvre?
So this painting of a Cross-Eyed Mutt is not the real story here. The real story is all about Fabien and Mathilde. They are so in love with each other and you will be in love with them. Or maybe the painting is part of the story as important as the people. This story has its weird and strange moments when you will not be sure what is going on. No matter what though you will be happy you picked up this wonderful book.
