Re: Marvelman

Postby TheButcher on Sat Apr 17, 2010 9:36 pm

From CBR:
C2E2: Cup O' Joe
The Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman issues of "Marvelman" were asked after, and Quesada said that news was coming, and that all the speculation online about whether or not legal issues were holding up such material is untrue. The company is releasing Marvelman comics in the way they want, and they want to "start where it started" with the Mick Anglo creations that were so popular with British fans in the '50s and beyond. Quesada talked about meeting Anglo and how the man has written many books about topics outside of comics and how he's a World War II and boxing enthusiast, so introducing the man and his work to the public is key for Marvel. They're not interested in immediately shoe-horning the character into books like "Avengers."

Mink Courts AMANO for DHC's SHINJUKU
In the upcoming illustrated novel Shinjuku, a retired Special Forces soldier has entered the seedy world of bounty hunting – and one of his first jobs is saving his own sister. Set in a futuristic 2020 in Shinjuku Tokyo, Shinjuku follows Daniel Legend as he descends into the depths of Tokyo to find his lost sibling and comes head-to-head with not just one underworld, but two: the criminal and the supernatural. What starts as a personal quest turns into something that could impact the world.

Legendary illustrator Yoshitaka Amano (Vampire Hunter D, Sandman: The Dream Hunters) is partnering with writer Mink for this illustrated novel – Amano's first in over a decade.

Check out an interview with the man here where many feel he shit on previous writers.

What say you? Were you under the impression that leather jackets on superheroes disappeared 10 years ago? Was the old costume too revealing?

Lecko, I don't mind the jacket. It gives her pockets. But why is it cropped at the ribcage? That's so Image '95 it's scary. As for the entire costume, I thought she managed fairly well in the bicycle shorts and sports bra look when she lost her title. Make the top full-length, add a little color, and it would have been a fine look not too far off the classic.

My LCS was out before I got there. If I remember, I'll ask them to reorder a copy.

Which reminds me that I need to place my July Previews order this weekend.


And why the frak is JMS taking on two DC books when he owes Marvel FOUR issues of The Twelve? This is total BS.

From CBR: CCI: DC Nation
The DC Nation panel at Comic-Con International found Grant Morrison, Geoff Johns, and JMS announcing new projects including a new Flash series and a collaboration between Johns and Morrison.


From Bleeding Cool:
Grant Morrison And Geoff Johns To Collaborate On New DC Project (UPDATE)
Rich Johnston wrote:Take one writer of Final Crisis. Take one writer of Blackest Night. Let them collaborate on a big new shiny thing at DC. And start saving your pennies.

At the DC Nation panel at San Diego Comic Con, Grant and Geoff mentioned that they are working on a new project from DC Comics for next year, to which Geoff commented “it will not be small”…

No other details for now. But this is where it starts….

UPDATE: Grant Morrison also states that only Cameron Stewart and Frank Quitely have been decided as artists on his Multiversity project – Stewart on Captain Marvel and Quitely on the Watchmenesque Charlton characters of Earth 4.

Can't believe I'm saying this, but I'd be tempted to read it. Shame that DC won't take the shot.

Postby TheButcher on Sat Sep 04, 2010 1:59 pm

From CBR:
Paul Pope talks Battling Boy, DJing and the new THB
Paul Pope is comics’ closest equivalent to a rock star.

It’s a reputation he’s garnered by both his comics works and his personality — and by the fact he’s an active DJ. He now splits his time between New York City and Europe, the latter of which is the first to see some of his anthology work. Last weekend, Pope and AdHouse Books stealth-released a new issue of his seminal series THB at Baltimore Comic-Con, with extra copies now available on AdHouse’s website. The unique nature of this release was due in no small part to Pope being off the shelves of American comic book stores for years while he completes the graphic novel Battling Boy for First Second.

Kubert Teases "Flashpoint"
Jeffrey Renaud wrote:While industry star Andy Kubert ("Batman: Whatever Happened to the Caped Crusader? ") was a featured guest at Fan Expo in Toronto - and boasted one of the longest queues when it came to autograph seekers - the artist was noticeably absent from the DC Nation and DC Universe panels on Friday and Saturday.

That was too bad for fans eager to learn more about "Flashpoint," the 2011 Flash-centric mega event he's illustrating for DC Comics, which is written by superstar writer Geoff Johns. Teased in the closing two pages of "The Flash" #1 in April 2010, all that is known about "Flashpoint" so far is that it features the speedsters and whatever threat they're up against has somehow changed the futures, pasts (or alternate realities) of Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman.

Re: DAYTRIPPER

Postby TheButcher on Wed Sep 08, 2010 5:56 am

From Fabio and Gabriel's Blog August 13, 2010:
Dream come true.
Gabriel Bá wrote:My brother and I have been wanting to tell stories in comicbooks for as long as we can remember. At first, we just wanted to copy what we were reading, as a way of being part of that magical universe of super-heroes, barbarians, space guardians, street punks and pirates. But soon the need to tell stories became stronger than the simple act of drawing.

We have told lots of stories – well, a few – from princes and fairies, to young people in love, to robots and waitresses. All these stories came out of our need to tell them, without any requests, any pressure, straight out of our heads. All those stories were building the ground for us to be finally able to tell Daytripper.

Daytripper is not a project we have had for a long time. It came from an idea I had some 8 or 9 years ago, but it was not more than that. It was one of the ideas we pitched to Vertigo when Bob Schreck asked us for ideas. It was the one they liked.

However, ever since we started actually working on this comic, it has become the story we have been waiting to tell our entire lives.

Issue 9 just came out, one we're really proud of, and next month brings the conclusion of our story. This has been a terrific journey. This is what comics mean to us. A real dream come true.


A GRAPHIC CONTENT Exclusive Preview: DAYTRIPPER #10
Pamela Mullin wrote:A great writer once said that we have to die to prove that we’ve lived. For nine beautiful issues, Bá and Moon have chronicled the different deaths of Brás de Oliva Domingos, so what’s left to say? Now, with the final chapter, there’s no turning back – for them or Brás. How brave must you be to keep going when you know death is the final outcome?

This amazing mini series, which on the surface seems to be about death, but at its heart, explores the wonder and emotion of life, concludes with DAYTRIPPER issue #10 this Wednesday.

I give them six issues per book, which is more than most of the '70s titles lasted. Wow, were most of them bad. The only title that stands out in my memory is The Scorpion, sort of a precursor to Howard Chaykin's Dominic Fortune. Though the concept of Ironjaw tends to burn itself into the brain -- barbarian has his jaw cut off by evildoers, a witch rivets a new one to his face. Amazing.
