Fans of the ABC Family series that were wondering what happened to the series finale of the show, need wonder no more, as ABC Family and Viper Comics team up for the final story. From ABC Family Fans of the ABC Family cult hit series can revisit the weird world of “The Middleman” and his trusty side-kick Wendy Watson when the “lost” series finale episode appears in comic book form this summer. The series will also be released on DVD in summer 2009. In a deal with Viper Comics, “The Middleman â€“ The Doomsday Armageddon Apocalypse” graphic novel is to
Josh Howard and Image Comics have announced that Howard’s Dead@17 series is moving to Image.Â Dead@17 had previously been published with Viper Comics, but for some time now, the series hasn’t been showing up in the monthly previews. Unfortunately, I’m not really in a position to comment on Viper’s issues, but it is my hope that eventually my other projects will follow Dead @ 17. But everything is still up in the air for the moment,” Howard said in an interview with Newsarama, “Most importantly, I just felt it was finally time to move on. Like you said, I had
Viper Comics has sold the film rights to Villains to Universal Pictures in a deal in the mid-six figure range. The graphic novel, by Adam Cogan and Ryan Cody, puts super bad guys center stage. The plot, told from the baddies’ perspective, follows a young man who is failing at life and finds purpose when he meets a Svengali-style villain who takes him under his wing. Universal has hired Matt Jennison and Brent Strickland to pen the adaptation, with Viper’s Jessie Garza co-producing.Â Jennison and Strickland are the duo behind Wonder Woman for Warner Bros. I’ve not read the title,
Letâ€™s get this out of the way up front so there is no confusion later on; Iâ€™m a big Josh Howard fan.Â I like the man, I like his stories, and I like his artwork.Â With that out of the way T-Bird and Throttle #0 arrived this past week, and after months of girls in skirts killing the undead, Iâ€™m ready to get into a new storyline, this time with superheroes.
The last time we talked with Wes Molebash he did say everything was cool with Viper Comics, but I thought it strange he had started his own You’ll Have That website seperate from Viper.Â Wes himself sent us an e-mail yesterday breaking the news of the split. I have recently decided to part ways with my publisher, Viper Comics, in favor of self-publishing my comic strip.Â Today, Sept. 1, marks the first day that my comic will be exclusively published online at www.yhtcomic.com!Â I’m really excited about this move toward self-publishing, and I’ve got several things in the works for
For those of you who missed an issue or two of the four issue series The Lost Book of Eve, the trade paperback arrives in stores this week. It contains all 4 issues from the first mini-series, concept sketches, and an all new epilogue. Complete cover after the jump.
A love story with monsters In days of yore, people kept their windows and door locked at night for fear monsters would spirit their children away to make of them a mid-night snack. In the 1950s, monster flicks and horror movies gave teenagers a chance to neck in the car, while spooky spirits made mayhem on the screen. Today, the monster genre runs the gambit from graphic horror to zany comedy, but in all this time we havenâ€™t seen too many tales of monster romance. Or more specifically, a vampire and a werewolf trying to find a home for themselves
Josh Howard, scribe and artist behind Dead@17 has posted a preview of some of the pages from the upcoming Dead@17 Compendium (coming sometime soon). Take the jump for some wonderful color art, but be warned; if you are one of those sensitive types or might get in trouble for viewing images of girls in their underwears duking it out with demons, you might want to wait until no one is around.
Josh Howard has updated his blog site with info regarding the delays with Dead@17 and other titles. Dead @ 17: Three issues remain (5-7). At the rate this printing schedule is going, you won’t see them until next year. Plus, Diamond is breathing down my neck threatening cancellation (and understandably so). So what’s the solution? I’m going to make the final three issues available online for free, as they are completed, November through December/January. They won’t see actual print until the trade paperback release (containing all 7 issues) in March. I know it’s not the ideal situation, but I hope
Getting the greenlight for a pilot a month ago, Viper Comics’ Middleman graphic novel now has a couple of stars – Matt Keeslar and Natalie Morales. “Middleman” centers on Wendy Watson (Morales), a twentysomething struggling artist recruited by a secret agency to fight comic book-type villains. Keeslar will play the title character, a sci-fi superhero who serves as her guide. Gleason will play Ida, the robotic gatekeeper and veteran assistant to Keeslar. Middleman is written by Javier Grillo-Marxuach who is also producing the pilot. If you want to find out more about Middleman, check out the huge preview of the
I’m a big fan of Wes Molebash and his webcomic You’ll Have That, so I’m more than happy to pass along information about a gallery showing of his work. The exhibit runs from July 17 until August 25, 2007 at the Pump House Art Gallery Chillicothe, OH 45601 740.772.5783
Josh Howard has been a really busy guy lately, and there has been a great deal of confusion as to when certain issues of Dead@17 and Lost Books of Eve are shipping. According to Mr. Howard himself, things have gotten a bit out of hand lately, and he is going ot end both series earlier than expected. So, in order to fix the problem, which has begun to adversely affect my sales, Lost Books of Eve will be ending with issue 4, and Dead @ 17 will wrap up with issue 7 this fall. Don’t worry, though…I won’t leave you
