THE AVANT-GUARDS All New Original Graphic Novel Arrives From BOOM! Studios in 2020

Tue, 10/29/2019 - 07:23

Discover Team Spirit with Everyone’s Favorite Group of Art School Basketball Champions in September 2020 

LOS ANGELES, CA (October 25, 2019) – BOOM! Studios is proud to announce the THE AVANT-GUARDS original graphic novel, concluding the story of the beloved group of misfit art students who band together to play for their school’s first ever basketball team. The brand new original graphic novel, picking up after issue eight and available in stores September 2020, reunites the acclaimed team of filmmaker and writer Carly Usdin (Heavy Vinyl) and artist Noah Hayes (Wet Hot American Summer) for a brand-new adventure with their team of unlikely athletes brought together by friendship and sports shenanigans.

“I’m so excited that Noah and I get to finish telling the story of our beloved Avant-Guards. The stakes couldn’t be higher — they’re fighting for the championship AND the future of the league,” said writer Carly Usdin. “The final installment will include teamwork, romance, lots of surprises and a dunk or two!”

THE AVANT-GUARDS graphic novel cover will feature art by series artist Noah Hayes.

“My favorite thing about the Avant-Guards is how unique all of them are- they each have their own special set of quirks and interests that materialized so quickly for me. I, of all people, should be aware that they’re merely drawings, but part of me feels like Jay or Nicole (or any of them!) could totally be real friends that I have.” said artist Noah Hayes.

THE AVANT-GUARDS is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ award-winning BOOM! Box imprint, home to groundbreaking original series such as Lumberjanes by Shannon Watters, Grace Ellis, Brooklyn Allen, and Noelle Stevenson; Giant Days by John Allison, Lissa Treiman, and Max Sarin; Heavy Vinyl by Carly Usdin and Nina Vakueva; Misfit City by Kirsten ‘Kiwi’ Smith, Kurt Lustgarten, and Naomi Franquiz; Fence by C.S. Pacat and Johanna The Mad; and Goldie Vance by Hope Larson and Brittney Williams.

“It’s been an absolute joy working with the dream team of writer Carly Usdin and artist Noah Hayes, so we can’t wait to tell the rest of the Avant-Guards story in graphic novel form,” said Shannon Watters, Senior Editor, BOOM! Studios. “Fans will get plenty of drama, romance, and competition as this team of misfit students continue to pursue love and basketball at their historic women’s art college.”

5 Hard Rock and Heavy Metal Bands that Launched Their Own Online Slot Games

Tue, 10/29/2019 - 07:09

With the popularity and immense love for franchises, from superheroes to dystopian and fantasy novels, multiple industries have applied this demand to increase businesses.

Pencils, posters, clothing, and games have evolved around beloved characters, movies, and books that have attracted customers.

Themed products have shown success time and time again since people adore the combination of their hobbies and interests into another useful and entertaining service.

Casino games are no exception to this phenomenon, specifically slot machines. With a myriad to choose from, there is no doubt that most slots have a specific theme that is recognizable for players through media coverage.

Gambling is a great option for entertainment (if going to the movies with friends gets a little predictable) that can be done responsibly and safely. 

Although gambling usually receives a negative connotation, it is intended to be enjoyed in a healthy manner through various strategies.

For example, one of the most encouraging tips from professional gamblers and casino regulators is to familiarize yourself with several casino games.

According to Adrian Sireca at OnlineCasinoGems, “it is important to learn basic rules and strategies on casino games, as well as bonuses and rewards when dabbling with online games. Make sure to know what you are dealing with on the casino floor before betting large sums of your money.”

Nevertheless, slot machines have been revolutionized to cater to every possible human interest, be it a superhero or a band. In fact, a popular theme for a slot machine is hard rock and heavy metal bands.

So, if you enjoy the occasional KISS and AC/DC, here are 5 hard rock and heavy metal band themed slot machines you can find on the casino floor.

 

1. Guns ‘n Roses

NetEnt launched recently a new Guns n’ Roses slot machine that will make its fans 

incredibly excited and satisfied.

The slot machine is set in a virtual Guns n’ Roses concert, where the band is performing 

along with the visuals of the crowd, which adds more realism to the game.

Graphics and overall theme are outstanding for all players, especially those who truly 

love some of the hit songs of the band.

The slot machine features songs such as “Sweet Child O’ Mine”, “Welcome to 

the Jungle”, and others in its massive catalog, which brings the effect of the game all 

the more together.

 

2. Jimi Hendrix

Famous guitarist Jimi Hendrix can also be found among the sea of slot machines in 

online casinos.

Although his music is not strictly classified as a pure metal, he has contributed strongly to 

the development of key features in metal music including distorted guitar sounds and 

heavier drums.

NetEnt once again released a successful themed slot machine in regards to Jimi 

Hendrix. With a 5-reel and 20 paylines, the slot features Jimi Hendrix himself, guitar solos, and famous songs.

While benefiting from free spins, respins, and prizes, the Jimi Hendrix machine is also 

perfect for the real music fans.

 

3. KISS

Powered by WMS Gaming, the “Kiss: Shout Out Loud!” slot machine is exclusively 

KISS-themed for those that can recognize the face paint and unique stage outfits.

The slot machine itself is very unique, as it has two separate reels, which is known as a 

Colossal Reel Set.

Several symbols in the slot correlate to the band, such as the close-ups of the band 

members and the KISS logo.

If you are looking for one of the best slot machines, and happen to be a fan of KISS, this 

is the perfect choice when browsing on online casinos.

 

4. Motorhead

Yet again, NetEnt dedicated one of their slot machines to another metal band, 

Motorhead. 

With 22 studio albums, 12 compilation records, and 10 live studio recordings, NetEnt 

had plenty of material to incorporate the band’s music into a great slot machine.

Fans can activate “music mode” when playing this slot to listen to Motorhead’s classic 

tunes, while also enjoying the virtual stage on which the band performs.

Be sure to spin a few reels on the slot and listen “Ace of Spades” to get in the spirits of 

gambling and the online casino world.

 

5. Megadeth

The slot machine Megadeth circulates the theme of the band of the same 

Name, becoming one of the most successful online slots out there.

Considered as one of the best thrash metal bands in history, the slot machine offers 

many of their famous songs to their customers’ disposal.

Online slot players can experience great fun with the 40 paylines, guitar picks, 

amplifiers, the band members, and musical instruments offered throughout the game.

You will be definitely entertained both by the thrill of slots and the music of Megadeth.

As themed slot machines are entertaining and successful among the public, slot machines are the top game within the gambling industry.

In fact, Nevada reported that their state gambling revenues surpassed the one-billion-dollar mark in June and July of 2019 largely due to slot machines.

Even some of the uncommon places for slot machines are generating profits due to the immense thrill and fun people seek from slots.

Chicago, for example, reported that one of its airports is expected to bring in approximately $37 million per year (source).

People enjoy doing multiple tasks with the help of music, be it doing several chores around the house, commuting to work, or playing games, such as slot machines.

Combining popular musical bands and the entertainment of slot machines has proven to be not only a satisfactory user experience but also beneficial for the developers of these games.

The graphics and overall virtual reality of experiencing a concert of the great bands in the history of hard rock and heavy metal is an exciting and intriguing promise of the companies.

With this feature, slot machines become even more enticing and interesting, not to mention intriguing to those who have not dabbled in gambling but enjoy the bands incorporated within the specific game.

Be it a KISS or Megadeth, people can have the opportunity to be immersed within a concert of some of the late greats of music while still winning prizes and free spins as on a traditional slot machine.

BOWIE STARDUST RAYGUNS & MOONAGE DAYDREAMS
NOV191779 or NOV191779
(W) Steve Horton (A) Michael Allred
Inspired by the one and only superhero, extraterrestrial, and rock and roll deity in history, Bowie: Stardust, Rayguns, & Moonage Daydreams is the original graphic memoir of the great Ziggy Stardust! In life, David Bowie was one of the most magnetic icons of modern pop culture, seducing generations of fans with both his music and his counterculture persona. In death, the cult of Bowie has only intensified. As a musician, Bowie’s legacy is remarkable, but his place in the popular imagination is due to so much more than his music. As a visual performer, he defied classification with his psychedelic aesthetics, his larger-than-life image, and his way of hovering on the border of the surreal. Bowie chronicles the rise of Bowie’s career from obscurity to fame; and paralleled by the rise and fall of his alter ego as well as the rise and fall of Ziggy Stardust. As the Spiders from Mars slowly implode, Bowie wrestles with his Ziggy persona. The outcome of this internal conflict will change not only David Bowie, but also, the world. Introduction by Neil Gaiman. Available in regular edition and PREVIEWS Exclusive hardcover editions.
In Shops: Jan 08, 2020
SRP: $39.99

Wayne’s Worlds: ‘Dead’ End

Sun, 10/13/2019 - 00:56

Now that The Walking Dead is returning to TV and the new sequel is in the works, I’m reminded of when we recently saw something unusual happen—a comic ended at an odd number!

It was a “Dead” end since it was the final issue of Image Comics’ The Walking Dead.

I was struck by a variety of emotions and thoughts!

WHAT HAPPENED?

Early that week, I kept reading what I considered speculation about what was going to happen in The Walking Dead #193. “The book is ending with this week’s issue!” I heard from several friends with close connections to those who would know.

As per usual, I took it with a grain of salt. The Internet has been wrong before, you know!

However, when that Wednesday arrived, so did the landmark book. Even as an enlarged issue, it still sold for only $3.99, the book’s usual price.

Of course, collectors went scrambling to get more copies of this issue. Let’s face it—The Walking Dead has been something of a phenomenon, particularly when it came to the comics world. After all, a black-and-white book about zombies that was popular? Unheard of!

As I think back, though, all the signs were there. Robert Kirkman had killed off Sheriff Rick just before that, and I wondered what he’d do with the book after that. I found the last several issues to be, well, pretty repetitive. Another Alexandria-like city with a leader who was not quite together and had a son who was spoiled? Yeah, I’ve read that before!

I had told my LCS that #200 of the book would be my last. The owner had said that sales were falling, and I wasn’t the only one to say they would end buying it at that number.

She told me that Diamond Distributors was furious with how Kirkman and Image had made this happen. Now they had to sell two books with reprints, she said. That’s not something that would bring a lot of sales to her store. Hey, I had told her I didn’t want #194 or #195 even though they had been solicited.

So ended an era in the comics universes. With something of a surprise, not an explosion.

FOR SOME, AN EXPECTED ENDING

There have been many theories about what was actually happening in The Walking Dead.

Personally, my favorite was the Dallas-style ending. You know, Rick was still unconscious after the initial accident, and the comic was always his unconscious mind’s imagination running wild.

Others thought the book was an accurate telling of what had happened. I think those folks got discouraged when Rick was recently killed, though.

A lot of people, though, had it right, that it was Carl telling someone the story of his father all along.

Hats off to those who called it right!

NOW WHAT?

It’ll be fascinating to see how many people also leave the AMC TV version behind as well. Ratings for the show had already been tumbling, so I wonder if people who were anchored in the comics will consider the story done and also stop watching the tube program. Apparently so, according to recent ratings indications.

I never got into Fear the Walking Dead, the spin-off. I had heard there was another program spinning out of The Walking Dead, but I wonder if all that will crash and burn now. We’ll see.

Speaking of the TV version, it has seriously veered off the trail blazed by the comics. For instance, Carl is long dead and Rick is no longer part of the show. Rick had a relationship with Michonne instead of Andrea there as well.

There are supposed to be movies starring Rick, I understand. Now that’s all up in the air, if it was ever a real thing!

I imagine the TV series will end with Rick’s daughter being the one telling his story now since Carl is long gone there. That’s what makes sense in the current continuity.

A GLANCE BACK

I’ve often related the story of how I got into The Walking Dead. I’ll tell it one last time, and more briefly.

I was at a comics store I shopped at frequently when I had some money left over. I asked the owner to recommend a series to me. He said I should be reading The Walking Dead.

I said that was crazy talk, a black-and-white zombie book? But I bought the first trade anyway. I was back the next day for more, and I was hooked, buying the comic regularly and watching the AMC show.

I enjoyed the comic because I felt it had a lot of surprises and twists along the way. I liked the characters and followed the stories with interest. It was something different to see a TV series based that closely on a comic, but I was always much more interested when Daryl appeared because he wasn’t in the books. I didn’t know what would happen while he was on the screen.

It’s kind of a sad thing to me whenever a comic reaches its conclusion, especially one as influential as this one has been. I love to read a good story with intriguing characters, and I felt The Walking Dead was compelling and surprising. I doubt that I’ll keep up with the AMC series now. Farewell, Rick and the gang! It’s been a fascinating ride!

RICH REVIEWS: Fiends # 3

Sat, 10/12/2019 - 14:50


Title: Fiends # 3
Publisher: Rat House Comics
Writers: David Zuzelo, Tim Tyler
Artist: Tim Tyler
Price: $ 12.00 US
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Facebook: www.facebook.com/pages/category/Publisher/RAT-HOUSE-Comics-151807612016780/
Website: “Heart of the Howling Beast” The art immediately sets a frightening atmosphere. The use of red for the blood in the black and white art adds so much to the effects of the story. The undead are frightening and the beast after the beauty is scary in its savagery.
There is a female shown topless so this is a mature title that and the extreme violence illustrated.
The werewolf unleashes his full savagery on the undead as he tears them apart. All hell breaks loose and unexpected things happen. A beautiful woman shows she is only beautiful on the outside.
The ending to this tale is kind of open ended. Overall if you like creatures of the night and things that go bump in the night you will find this to your eternal liking.
Things of It” The creatures illustrated here are the stuff of nightmares. There are lots of horrifying creatures in this story. The story itself though does not fully make sense. A little explanation would have been nice. The monster art though does more than make up for it.
If you havve a faint heart do not open this book you just might not make it through it.
