Бесобой 2017 # 6
Данила-Бесобой. Бесёнок Шмыг. Девушка Яна, в сознании которой поселился ночной кошмар Балор. Именно этот магический отряд – последняя опора Земли перед угрозой вторжения демонов. Но даже самым могучим героям порой бывает нужна помощь… Странные вещи начинают твориться в Москве: один за другим открываются всё новые порталы из Ада, и множество демонов попадает на Землю. Бесобой не может допустить этого и обращается за помощью к таинственной организации «МЧК», поддерживающей баланс сил добра и зла в нашем мире. Их лидер Феликс Дзержинский выделяет в помощь Даниле и компании одного из своих сотрудников по имени Павел, чтобы тот, если что, мог вызвать подмогу… В результате вся компания попадает в сокрытый город демонов на Земле – Цафуран и там становится свидетелями попытки восстания со стороны нархонов – беженцев из самой Преисподней. Однако местные используют против них таинственное живое оружие неизвестного происхождения… В итоге бунт оказывается подавлен, и в ходе допроса представители «МЧК» выясняют, что оружие жителям Цафурана выдал некий ангел…

First Comics News - Thu, 08/03/2017 - 16:59

Russian film company BUBBLE STUDIOS presented a short film called “Major Grom” at the Comic-Con festival in San Diego

San Diego, 03 August 2017: The premiere screening of the short film “Major Grom” was held as part of San Diego Comic-Con International 2017, the largest festival of popular culture. The screening ended with a Q & A session where anyone who wanted could chat with the film’s creators. The film was enthusiastically received by the public: it received prolonged applause and aroused great interest among the audience – a whole line was formed by viewers who wanted to ask questions.

Director Vladimir Besedin announced that, at the current moment, he is working on a script for a full-length film called “Major Grom. Plague Doctor”, while producer Artyom Gabrelyanov stated that there is a great deal of interest in the project on the part of several foreign film studios. He stressed that negotiations are currently underway with a number of companies around the world and that the topic of attracting foreign actors is also being considered.

BUBBLE comic book publishing house was the only Russian participant in the San Diego festival for now the third year in a row. This time the exhibition was attended by the founder of the publishing house, Artyom Gabrelyanov, chief editor Roman Kotkov, artist Natalia Zaidova, and the head of the studio, Vladimir Besedin.

The short film “Major Grom” was first shown at the Berlin International Film Festival on February 11, 2017. The Russian premiere was held on February 19, 2017 on the Life.ru portal. The plot is centered around the story of an experienced detective from St. Petersburg named Igor Grom, who, by chance, happens to witness a bank robbery. In spite of possible danger, Igor Grom decides to stop the criminals on his own.

A new, 360-degree circular shooting technology was specially developed for the film. The picture, with its 1 million dollar budget, became a YouTube hit and received more than 6 million views.

Wednesday Comics: T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents

Sorcerer's Skull - Wed, 08/02/2017 - 11:00
Taking a break from Storm for a week, I want to consider the T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents, a 60s superhero comic conceived primarily by the great Wally Wood. The series only ran 20 issues in its initial run, but its characters and concepts were appealing enough they there have been several (brief) revivals over the decades.

T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents combines two popular things in the mid-1960s: spy-fi and Marvel-style superheroics. T.H.U.N.D.E.R. stands for The Higher United Nations Defense Enforcement Reserves (I don't know what that means, either). It's essential SHIELD or UNCLE with more superhero agents. All of them are the product of technology: Dynamo with his thunderbelt, NoMan, the elderly scientist who can transfer his intellect into robotic bodies, and Menthor, a secret traitor with a helmet that gives him mental powers and a more heroic personality.

There enemies are a mostly forgettable cadre of aliens and freedom-threatening organizations: the Warlord, the Subterraneans, S.P.I.D.E.R. They serve their purpose for generating superhero action, particularly rendered in Wally Wood's style.

DC Comics did hardcover archives of the T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents material when they had the license. These aren't too hard to find, but do require a bit of looking. IDW now owns the license and has put out paperback collections called T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents Classics.
