Way back in 2009, Terminator Salvation hit the big screens hoping to re-energize the Terminator franchise. Whether that was a success or not is debatable, but Dark Horse is bringing a sequel, Terminator Salvation: The Final Battle, by high profile writer J. Michael Straczynski. Is this a sequel worth reading or is it better off just waiting for the future reboot? Read on and find out!
Can’t wait for the first issue of Twilight Zone from Dynamite Entertainment? Good, because we’ve got a sneak peek just for you.
Dynamite signed a deal with CBS Consumer Products to create a comic book series based on one of the most captivating television shows of all time, The Twilight Zone, featuring all-new tales of science and superstition as written by acclaimed author and Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski, one of the privileged few celebrated as a Special Guest of San Diego Comic-Con International 2013.
DC’s attempt at capitalizing on the success of Watchmen with the release of the prequel series has been successful in a purely monetary sense. Each new release has been, for the most part, a top seller, all the while receiving lukewarm reviews from critics and fans alike. Find out if the Dr. Manhattan outing breaks the mold of mediocrity after the jump!
Are you a UFO buff? Love the conspiracy theory? Want to read a story about what happened at Roswell? J. Michael Straczynski and Legendary Comics announced The Majestic Files at San Diego Comic-Con, and it is already on my must read list.
J. Michael Straczynski has been all around the comic book world, working on some of the biggest titles, for some of the biggest companies. The writer has also done a fair amount of work in television, feature films, and video games, and tonight the writer announced the launch of Studio JMS.
Remember when J. Michael Straczynski walked away from the Superman and Wonder Woman titles to focus on the second volume of the highly successful Superman: Earth One? Well we’ll get to see the sequel arrive in bookstores this year.
If you missed the news yesterday, DC Comics announced that J. Michael Straczynski will be stepping down from his monthly writing duties on Superman and Wonder Woman to focus on a sequel to the hugely popular Superman: Earth One graphic novel.
DC made a wise decision to return the multiverse to continuity. For one thing it allowed all the great Elseworlds and Earth-2 through Earth-Z stories to be told, but it also gave creators a chance to tell new alternate continuity tales that haven’t been explored yet. This past week saw the release of Superman: Earth One hardcover released, and though the price was steep, it was well worth the price for entry.
J. Michael Straczynski’s Superman: Earth One seems like a long time coming, but it is finally coming in October. DC Comics has released a sneak peek of the issue that you can see, after the jump.
DC has announced that J. Michael Stracznski has been brought on board to write the Superman and Wonder Woman titles beginning in July 2010.
DC posted a statement from the writer about writing both of the books.
â€œFor as long as Iâ€™ve been doing conventions (starting in the early Cretaceous period, when it was just me and a handful of pterosaurs on a panel debating whether or not mammals with opposable thumbs were really necessary to the writing of quality comics, a point still hotly debated today), there has always been the same question from folks in the audience: â€œIs there any one character who is your dream character to write for?â€ The answer has always been the same: Superman. When I first came over to DC, that dream was realized in part by Dan DiDioâ€™s gracious invitation to write the first of potentially many Superman original graphic novels. Now the dream has come fully true with the opportunity to write for the mainstream title, in a story that returns Superman to his roots in a way that will have the whole country talking about him in ways that we havenâ€™t seen in a long time.
Similarly, the chance to write Wonder Woman â€” the nearest analogue to Superman in the DCU â€” is massively exciting. Sheâ€™s a vital, powerful character, and we hope to bring a more contemporary sensibility to her character will retaining everything that makes her unique.
That DC is willing to jump-start these two runs in the pages of their respective anniversary issues is a great opportunity and a vote of confidence in what we have planned for these characters. Iâ€™m looking forward to this with more excitement than words can convey.
Itâ€™s gonna be a blast.â€
Superman #701 and Wonder Woman #601 arrive in July.Â I love what JMS did with Thor, and if he can bring the same power to Superman AND Wonder Woman, color me impressed.
A lot of panels being covered by the various Intardwebz outlets today, so why not offer up our Rapid-Fire Roundup of San Diego Comic-Con News.Â It’s better than a live blog, because you don’t have to wait for the three minute update, and you don’t have to jump from entry to entry; it’s all under one umbrella-ella-ella.
