Wed, 03/28/2018 - 19:53

March 28, 2018: Humanoids, the publisher of some of the world’s most iconic and groundbreaking science fiction and fantasy graphic novels, is launching a new literary imprint in 2018, timed to the company’s 20th anniversary of publishing its acclaimed books in the United States. Best known for seminal genre works including The Incal (Alejandro Jodorowsky, Mœbius) and The Metabarons (Jodorowsky, Gimenez) and internationally renowned creators, including Milo Manara and Jose Ladronn, Humanoids will make a bold break from tradition with its new endeavor. Launching on April 4th, the LIFE DRAWN imprint will publish graphic novels featuring deeply personal and powerful political narratives; these are stories grounded in life on earth, not among the stars.

 

“Since its inception in the ’70s, Humanoids has published some of the greatest science fiction and fantasy tales ever told—including international best sellers such as The Incal and The Metabarons,” said Humanoids CEO and Publisher, Fabrice Giger. “After so many years of exploring imaginary universes, I felt the urgency for us to also explore . . . real life.

Publication date: April 4, 2018; ISBN: 978-1594658686; 160 Pages; $19.95

LIFE DRAWN debuts with the first volume of a satire-laced travel memoir by cartoonist Nicolas Wild about his experiences in Afghanistan, drawing an adaptation of of the Afghan constitution. Wild provides insights into international politics, a war-ravaged country and the lives of his fellow expatriates. In a dazzling passage, Wild explores the fragile state of American democracy through the story of a woman who was working for the Bush campaign in 2000 and was responsible for vote counting in one of Florida’s three counties, ultimately making the fateful phone call that helped swing the election. Acclaimed cartoonist Guy Delisle (Pyongyang: A Journey in North Korea) declares that Wild’s “satirical and at times absurdist perspective plunges us into the daily life of a group of expatriates in the heart of Kabul, a city still reeling from the last war. His witty sense of humor makes him an excellent travel companion.” Book Two will be published in September.

As Doan Hoang, the award-winning director of Oh, Saigon, says in her introduction of Book One, “History is mostly told by the privileged and powerful, and rarely by those who are most affected. . . . In this sumptuously beautiful and important graphic novel, you will intimately bear witness to what so few in the world have been privy to.”

Luisa: Now and Then by Carole Maurel, Adapted by‎ Mariko Tamaki (This One Summer)

FROM COWBOY TO SUPER HERO TO DARK AVENGER! SUBMISSIONS CALL OPEN FOR ‘PARAGON’ ANTHOLOGY FROM PRO SE AND AC COMICS!

Wed, 03/28/2018 - 04:35

Pro Se Productions and AC Comics/Nightveil Media have joined forces to bring AC’s classic lineup of characters to the prose pages of New Pulp Fiction. That cannot be done without including one of AC’s most imaginative and strongest characters. Pro Se Productions is now taking submissions for short stories in an anthology featuring Bill Black’s creation- PARAGON!

“Paragon,” says Tommy Hancock, Editor in Chief of Pro Se Productions, “is not just the requisite guy in tights and a cape that every comic company seems to have. No, Bill Black made sure Charlie Starrett stood out in many ways, including essentially giving him three separate identities, or phases of existence. With Paragon, stories can actually be told of his time as the western hero, The Latigo Kid or as the Golden Age hero Captain Paragon, or even as simply Paragon, a darker version of the hero as seen in DARK APOCALYPSE. This diverse history of the character makes him ideal for an anthology focused on any and all of his various phases. I cannot wait to see what writers come up with. ”

Stories for PARAGON must be 8-10,000 words in length. Each story must focus on ONE period of Paragon’s life-The Latigo Kid, Captain Paragon, or Paragon. Supporting characters from the AC Universe can be used in the stories, pending approval of proposals. A bible will be available for this call by emailing submissions@prose-press.com. A proposal of 100-500 words must be submitted to submissions@prose-press.com. Authors not previously published by Pro Se Productions must submit a writing sample of at least two pages with their proposals.

Final deadline for completed stories is 90 days following
acceptance of proposals. Payment will be in the form of royalties, the percentage determined by number of accepted submissions. These are considered works for hire as PARAGON and related characters are the property of AC Comics/Nightveil Media.

PARAGON is a part of the Pro Se Open, the company’s anthology project, and is scheduled to be published in the 2019-2021 calendar years, depending on submissions and other factors.

Bram Stoker’s Dracula By Mike Mignola  Returns To Print!

Wed, 03/28/2018 - 01:44

Beloved series is finally coming back in a gorgeous new edition from IDW

SAN DIEGO, CA, (March 24th, 2018) – 25 years ago one of comics’ most celebrated creators, Mike Mignola, adapted to comics, along with Roy Thomas, the star-studded Columbia Pictures (Sony Pictures Entertainment) film by Francis Ford Coppola, Dracula, based on the world-renowned novel by Bram Stoker. Now at last fans of this lost treasure will have a chance to relive the terror, or discover it for the first time, as IDW is bringing the complete story back to print!

“I cannot tell you what a relief it is to have this book back in print,” said artist Mike Mignola. “People have been asking about this one for ages—More than any other book of mine—and I honestly didn’t think it was ever going to be possible to see an edition, but here it is. Thank you Scott Dunbier and IDW. No idea how you did it but very glad you did. I’m generally not a fan of my older work (pretty huge understatement there) but I think this one holds up. Despite the fact that I was doing a movie adaptation (which has its own unique set of problems) I think there is some nice drawing and storytelling in here. One of the very few older jobs I’m still pretty proud of.”

The 136 page hardcover collection features Mignola’s stunning black and white artwork, and showcases the master creators’ final work before launching Hellboy.

Bram Stoker’s Dracula by Mike Mignola is available for pre-order now wherever books are sold using ISBN 978-1684053155. The feature film Bram Stoker’s Dracula is now available on Blu-ray™ and 4K Ultra HD™.

HARBINGER WARS 2 #1 preview

Wed, 03/28/2018 - 01:34

Valiant is proud to present your first look within the pages of HARBINGER WARS 2 #1 (of 4), the FIRST ISSUE of the summer’s most anticipated comics crossover event! On May 30th, New York Times best-selling writer Matt Kindt (DIVINITY, Mind MGMT) and breathtaking artist Tomás Giorello (NINJA-K) – the best-selling team behind X-O MANOWAR – push the Valiant Universe to its breaking point and beyond with a world-shaking opening volley to begin the senses-shattering clash of 2018!

For the rare and immensely powerful subset of humanity known as psiots, their unique abilities have come with an enormous cost. Once, their existence was known only to a select few. Now, the revelation that thousands of these latent telekinetic “harbingers” secretly live among us…with the potential to become active at any moment…has led the American government to a dramatic tipping point…

Armed with new extra-governmental authority, the deep-black military contractor known as Omen has been authorized to identify, evaluate, and, if need be, eliminate all super-normal threats to the homeland. H.A.R.D. Corps units have been deployed into cities and towns across the United States to enforce their orders.

In the East, one of the most powerful minds on Earth, Peter Stanchek, is leading his band of Renegades across the country, activating any potential psiots willing to join them, and building an insurrection force of ultra-powerful and unwieldy new abilities that will soon bring war to Omen’s doorstep…and the unstoppable force known as X-O Manowar raging back to Earth…

In the West, Livewire – the telekinetic technopath with the ability to bend machines and computers to her will – will be forced to choose between her former allies…or her newfound team of Secret Weapons. As the situation escalates beyond human control, the United States will be plunged into darkness from coast to coast, launching Bloodshot and Ninjak into a dangerous mission to neutralize their one-time teammate – and setting the stage for the most shocking, most violent, and most consequential clash of powers ever witnessed in the history of the Valiant Universe!

This summer, Valiant’s biggest and most ambitious event yet takes hold…and, on May 30th, all of America will witness the raw, unrepentant power of the Valiant Universe unleashed in HARBINGER WARS 2 #1 (of 4) – featuring covers by J.G. Jones (Final Crisis), Mico Suayan (BLOODSHOT REBORN), Juan José Ryp (BRITANNIA), Felipe Massafera (Planet of the Apes/Green Lantern), and Lewis LaRosa (BLOODSHOT SALVATION)!

But first: JUMP ON BOARD with HARBINGER WARS 2: PRELUDE #1 – a STANDALONE INTRODUCTION TO THE VALIANT UNIVERSE’s most powerful forces from all-star creators Eric Heisserer, Raúl Allén, and Patricia Martín, the master storytellers that brought you SECRET WEAPONS, on May 2nd!

The Harbinger Renegades have been scattered across America…battered by the brutal MASSACRE that decimated their ranks.

Now, behind them, Livewire – leader of the Harbinger Foundation’s most unusual group of Secret Weapons – is about to incite the coast-to-coast clash that brings them all together in an inescapable collision of power.

Pushed to the brink by the government she once served, Toyo Harada’s former star pupil is about to make an irreversible decision…and deactivate America’s power supply in a last-ditch bid to save the extraordinary individuals called “psiots” from extinction. As a nation goes dark, the paths of our world’s most powerful heroes will soon converge…and the stage will be set for the most cataclysmic confrontation in the history of the Valiant Universe!

On May 2nd, the creative team behind the best-selling SECRET WEAPONS will soon reshape the landscape of the Valiant Universe and plunge its heroes to new depths with a powerful standalone prologue, only in HARBINGER WARS 2: PRELUDE #1 – featuring covers by Raúl Allén (BLOODSHOT REBORN), Michael Cho (Batwoman), Cary Nord (X-O MANOWAR), and Felipe Massafera (Flashpoint: Abin Sur)!

A New Thrilling Adventure Hour Begins In July

Wed, 03/28/2018 - 01:32

Discover The Comedy Phenomenon in All-New Stories from BOOM! Studios

LOS ANGELES, CA (March 27, 2018) – BOOM! Studios is proud to announce THE THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR #1, kicking off an all-new series from creators Ben Acker and Ben Blacker, along with rising star artist M.J. Erickson, in July 2018. In this new monthly series, based on the wildly popular Hollywood stage show and podcast, Frank and Sadie Doyle are the toast of the upper crust – headliners on the society pages…and they see ghosts. When one night of having a drink (or ten) with friends goes horribly, and perhaps predictably, wrong at a haunted house, the Doyles find themselves in a situation beyond belief.

THE THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR #1 features a main cover by Jonathan Case (Green River Killer) and a variant cover by Natacha Bustos (Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur).

“We’re utterly thrilled to call BOOM! Studios the new home for Thrilling Adventure Hour comics,” said writers Ben Acker and Ben Blacker. “In addition to collecting our previous, heretofore uncollected, TAH comics work, we’re excited to bring new stories featuring married mediums Frank and Sadie Doyle, Sparks Nevada, Marshal on Mars, and more. We’re looking at the first arc of this new Thrilling Adventure Hour series as an opportunity to re-introduce these characters and bring forth the fun, the humor, and the grounded storytelling that we love about the show and the podcast. We think new readers, as well as existing Adventurekateers, will fall in love with these characters (all over again).”

“I’ve been a fan of the Bens and the Thrilling Adventure Hour for years, so I’m excited to be a part of the latest addition to the comics,” said artist M.J. Erickson. “The characters are vivid and hilarious, and I love the show’s mash-up, no-limits approach to classic genres. I’m also passionate about history and literature, so I can’t wait to expand on the nostalgic and creative visuals that have been explored in the previous comics.”

Also in stores July 2018, THE THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR: A SPIRITED ROMANCE DISCOVER NOW EDITION is a comic shop-exclusive collection of The Thrilling Adventure Hour Presents: Beyond Belief limited series (previously published by Image Comics) from Acker, Blacker, and artist Phil Hester (Green Arrow), which introduces readers to Frank and Sadie Doyle for the first time. This collection carries an MSRP of $14.99 and features an all-new cover by Hester.

In October, a standard edition of THE THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR: A SPIRITED ROMANCE, featuring a different cover and including additional behind-the-scenes material, will be released to comic shops and bookstores worldwide, with an MSRP of $14.99. While this standard version will remain in print, THE THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR: A SPIRITED ROMANCE DISCOVER NOW EDITION will be strictly limited to the initial print run and then never reprinted again.

“The Thrilling Adventure Hour has a comedic voice and creative vibrancy unlike anything else in comics thanks to the incredible characters created by Acker and Blacker,” said Cameron Chittock, Editor, BOOM! Studios. “We’re thrilled that BOOM! Studios is the home for the latest shenanigans of Frank and Sadie Doyle, and all the lovable character they will bring along for the ride.”

Created in 2005 by Ben Acker and Ben Blacker, The Thrilling Adventure Hour is both a popular Hollywood stage show and Nerdist Industry Podcast that pays homage to the timeless Hollywood radio serials. These original and exciting stories crossing a myriad of genres have been performed by actors and comedians such as Paul F. Tompkins, Paget Brewster, Busy Philipps, Nathan Fillion, Linda Cardellini, Patton Oswalt, Neil Patrick Harris, and more.

THE THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR is the latest release from BOOM! Studios’ eponymous imprint, home to a world-class group of licensed comic book series and ambitious original series, including Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, WWE, Big Trouble in Little China, Victor LaValle’s Destroyer, Mech Cadet Yu, Grass Kings, and Klaus.

Print copies of THE THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR #1 and THE THRILLING ADVENTURE HOUR: A SPIRITED ROMANCE DISCOVER NOW EDITION will be available for sale in July 2018 exclusively at local comic book shops (use comicshoplocator.com to find the nearest one). Digital copies can be purchased from content providers, including comiXology, iBooks, Google Play, and the BOOM! Studios app.

NEW MS. INKWELL DEBUTS AT THE GARDEN STATE COMIC FEST: ATLANTIC CITY

Wed, 03/28/2018 - 00:35

(New Bedford, MA/USA–March 27, 2018) The non-profit Inkwell Awards will debut a new spokesmodel, Skylar Lauren Godwin, as Ms. Inkwell at the Garden State Comic Fest: Atlantic City Edition on April 7-8, the next stop on their 2018 10th Anniversary show tour.

 

The Ms. Inkwell role is to serve as the advocacy’s public face, meet and greet creators and fans at shows, help with fundraising and raise awareness for their mission of education and promotion for the art of comic-book inking. Skylar, an avid cosplayer from North Carolina, was scheduled to debut at a later show to work beside the current Ms. Inkwell, Hailey Skaza-Gagne, who would train her. Skaza-Gagne had to cancel and Godwin was asked to start early.

 

“Hailey had a private family issue and needed to take a break for at least this appearance,” said Bob Almond, the Inkwells’ founder, and director. “She’s been our exclusive Ms. Inkwell for a record 21 events and nearly three straight years of exemplary service and work ethic. She just hates disappointing the fans and creators whom she truly cherishes, but is confident Skylar can do the job. Skylar has a sincere enthusiasm and passion for this role and can’t wait to start.”

 

Said Godwin,”I was so excited when Bob Almond asked me to be apart of the Inkwell family this year as they celebrate their 10th anniversary. Heroes Con 2014 was actually the first time I met Bob and was introduced to the Inkwell organization. Little did I know that 4 years later I would be asked to be a part of this wonderful non-profit and have the great opportunity to work with such amazing people.”.

 

One or both Ms. Inkwells will also appear at the East Coast Comicon in Secaucus, NJ, on April 27-29 and at the organizations’s eighth annual live awards ceremony at Heroes Con in Charlotte, NC, on June 15-17.

 

The character of Ms. Inkwell was created by Almond and Randy Green to garner more attention for their booth at shows. Since the spokesmodel’s first live appearance in April 2010 at the Pittsburgh Comicon, the role has been taken up by over a dozen talented women at various venues. The Inkwell Awards recently published the fundraiser “Ms. Inkwell Gallery Book,” featuring the character’s history along with exclusive pinup art from many contributing artists.

 

The Inkwell Awards is the only existing official 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to educate the public and promote the art form of comic-book inking, as well as annually recognize the best ink artists and their work. Now celebrating its 10-year anniversary, the organization is overseen by a committee of industry professionals and assisted by various professional ambassadors and contributors from within the comics community. They sponsor the Dave Simons Inkwell Memorial Scholarship Fund for the Kubert School and host the Joe Sinnott Hall of Fame Award.
