This week’s interview is with two of the creators of the fascinating Dark Beach #1, Michael J. Ruiz-Unger and Tucker Tota.
Matt Kindt can pitch curve balls like few others can, and I also admire his ability to make characters “real” to me. And he does all this while weaving tremendous sci-fi stories, too! For the last couple of years, he’s been doing more and more for Valiant, a company I really like, so I’ve been enjoying his work on Unity, Ninjak and Rai. The story of Rai is now continuing in 4001 A.D., and the debut issue has just hit the stands. To use the technical term, it’s a doozy!
DC has released a sneak peek of Power Girl #4, and those paying close attention will see a cameo appearance by the cast of The Big Bang Theory.Â The rest of the preview is pretty funny to, and I have to hand it to Gray, Palmiotti, and Conner for cranking out an excellent series.
If you were wondering what Ernie Hudson has been doing since HBO’s OZ ended, the answer seemed pretty boring until the announcement that the actor is joining NBC’s Heroes this season.Â The storyline is being kept under wraps, but we have learned that Hudson will play Captain Lubbock, a Baltimore detective. The upcoming fourth season of “Heroes” introduces a major new mythology about a traveling carnival of people with special powers run by a charismatic but evil Earth-moving ringleader (Robert Knepper). And let’s not forget the potential girl loves girl storyline with that Hayden girl. via THR
It worked for Battlestar Galactica, so why not try it with another television series from days gone by?Â The Syfy Channel is looking to remake Alien Nation into a new updated television series. “Alien Nation” centers on the partnership between a veteran cop and his alien detective partner, set against the larger tale of alien “newcomers” who move to Earth and attempt to assimilate into society. Tim Miner of Angel, X-Files, Firefly, and Strange World fame is currently writing the first script. Alien Nation was a very good movie, and an intriquing television series as it gave the creators a
During the Wiz World Philly DC Nation Panel, DC EIC Dan Didio gave a bit more news on the upcoming Doc Savage series coming out of the company. Didio then revealed that DC would bring back the classic pulp hero Doc Savage via a monthly series to be written by Brian Azarello (“100 Bullets”) and drawn by Rags Morales. Morales said that the series will bring Savage into the DCU, though it will take place in an alternate universe where he will work and interact alongside such classic characters as Blackhawk and Will Eisner’s The Spirit. The world Savage lives
The latest episode of Batman: The Brave and The Bold airs this week, and here’s your sneak peek. SYNOPSIS: Gorilla Grodd travel’s to the future where intelligent animals rule humans — Batman follows him and teams with Kamandi (the last boy on Earth) to bring him down.
Dark Hero Studios and Pandemonium are teaming to bring the zombie comic book Deadworld, to movie theaters sometime in the future (unless of course you are reading this after the movie is already out… HELLO FUTURE PEOPLE!). “Deadworld” picks up four months after that event, where the Dead overtake the Earth, with humans few and far between. Protag is King Zombie, a Harley-riding corpse who holds a grudge against the survivors who made him an outcast. The film is expected to go into production in 2010. via Variety
ICv2 is reporting that Peter Jackson will make his first apperance at the San Diego Comic-Con International to promote the alien sci-fi movie District 9. District 9, which tells the story of an extraterrestrial race that lives in slums on Earth, will be released on August 14th. I find it odd that this is his first appearance at SDCC, with all the success Lord of the Rings, King Kong and other related movies have had.Â But then again, if he was spending all his time going to conventions we wouldn’t have had Lord of the Rings, King Kong, and other
Fans of Brian Michael Bendis, who own an Xbox, have probably played Halo.Â Bendis penned Halo Uprising, and now Marvel is bringing the series to the hardcover collection for those who like waiting for the trade. As the Master Chief battles to defend Earth from the Covenant, forces of good and evil will be drawn to the mysterious Key. Whoâ€”or whatâ€”holds the secret to the one thing that could change the balance of interstellar power? Halo Uprising hardcover by Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev arrives in stores on June 3, 2009, with a suggested cover price of $24.99. via
And as expected is going back to press with a variant cover featuring the interior artwork of Peter Vale. No one knows who this She-Hulk is or why she has come to Earth, but they are about to find out.Â Will this new Jade Giant be a menace to the Marvel Universe as we know it? How is Norman Osborn involved? The second printing of All New Savage She-Hulk arrives May 20, 2009 with a $3.99 cover price. via Marvel
Nightwing and Flamebird?Â Ah, yes.Â Now you die. Rumors of who the new Nightwing and Flamebird are have had Intarweb clacking away feverishly since their initial appearance in the Superman titles.Â With Action Comics #875, those identities are revealed, and Zodâ€™s master plot continues to unfold.
