I just had a chance to check out the international trailer for the Monsters movie – which will probably never appear in a theater near me. The trailer sure is creepy, and since I don’t know much about the film other than what the trailer shows, I wonder if the monsters are really us…
Boom! Studios sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep #7, Irredeemable #9, Monsters, Inc. #4, Wall-E #1, the Farscape Volume 3: Gone & Back hardcover, and the Irredeemable Volume 2 trade paperback, all arriving in stores this week.
Some of you may remember the brouhaha surrounding David Goyer’s Supermax film project that was supposed to feature Oliver Queen locked away in a maximum security prison surrounded by the DC villains that he put there.Â The latest description of the film doesn’t quite sound like Goyer’s original premise.
The story takes place in a Maximum Security Prison for the Super-Natural as a skilled guard must join forces with a lethal inmate after a riot ensues in order to fight his way through various monsters and mad-men in order to survive.
Doesn’t sound like an Ollie Queen movie to me. So without an Ollie, does that mean the villains and monsters won’t be recognized DC villains either?Â Shooting for the film is set to begin in the early part of 2010.
Boom! Studios sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Phil Hester and Brian Churilla’s new series The Anchor.Â The series arrives in October, but there is still time to pre-order a copy.Â I’m really like Churilla’s art style, and the whole vibe of the comic should put it up there with other supernatural super heroes.
It’s been two years since the last Lenore comic book landed on store shelves.Â Titan Books is planning to fix that with The Macabre Malevolence of Mortimer Fledge.

Lenore: The Macabre Malevolence of Mortimer Fledge arrive in August for $3.99.
Red 5 has sent Major Spoilers a sneak peek of Beautiful Creatures #1.Â The issue doesn’t arrive until September, but there is still plenty of time to order the full 48-page issue from your LCS.
What started out as a spooky tale of the last days of Atlantis, turned to a political thriller pitting brother against brother.Â As issue #3 of Boom! Studiosâ€™ Fall of Cthulhu: Nemesis arrives, readers are once again treated to a spooky tale – this time with monsters.
Itâ€™s Friday, which means it is Support Our Advertisers Day.

Studio 407 will release its Hybrid series in trade paperback form on February 25, 2009.Â If you didn’t get a chance to read the individual issues, now might be a good time to read the collection before the movie adaptation hits theaters.
“This was a real opportunity to take an old fashioned genre, the classic monster story, and bring it into the 21st century. says Hybrid writer Peter Kwong. “The ‘hybrid” is unlike any creature that you’ve ever seen; yet, like all classical monsters, it’s very much rooted in contemporary fears and anxieties. That always makes it more interesting as a writer, and, I hope, the audience will agree.”
Studio 407 has provided a sneak peek at the first issue, that you can read after the jump.
There have been a plethora of comic book titles that have featured some of our favorite monsters.Â You can’t throw a goth without hitting a werewolf, vampire, or zombie comic in your local comic shop.Â Are there too many?Â Has the glut lead to monster burn out?
25 November 2008 (Berkeley, CA)Â – This February, the world’s most popular monster hunter confronts the past he fought so hard to forget in Image Comics Shadowline’s JOHNNY MONSTER!
“Even the best action movie only works because it has heart and JOHNNY MONSTER has it in droves,” Shadowline Publisher Jim Valentino said. “While loaded with enough giant monster showdowns to make any fan happy, the core of the book is writer Joshua Williamson and artist J.C. Grande fleshing out what may be my new favorite character of the year! The whole Shadowline team hopes to see JOHNNY MONSTER return in the future!”
JOHNNY MONSTER made himself a household name by hunting the monsters who stalk the Earth. However, nobody knows he was raised by the same monsters he’s been after. Unfortunately for Johnny, no secret stays quiet forever. However, he won’t be alone as Image Comics’ other monster-man, FIREBREATHER, appears courtesy of creators Phil Hester and Andy Kuhn! The entire three-issue mini-series mixes pulp adventure with the best monster movies cinema has to offer to create a compelling and very different monster mashup!
JOHNNY MONSTER (DEC082275), a 32-page page full-color comic book for $3.50, will be available February 18th.
Don’t you just hate it when you have all the qualifications for a job, yet it goes to someone else?Â That’s what happens to Renee Tempete, who should be the new Galaxy Girl, but instead the role goes to a hottie with no powers at all.Â This leads to the three issue mini-series from Image Comics Shadowline imprint by Kat Cahill and Seth Damoose.
Based on skill alone, Renee Tempete should be the new Galaxy Girl. Instead, a buxom blonde with no actual powers holds the title. As events unfold, Renee struggles not only against monsters, criminals and giant robots, but also a society that desperately wants to keep her in her place.
“While I HATE GALAXY GIRL was originally Kat Cahill’s runner-up for our ‘Who Wants To Create a Super Heroine Contest’, Shadowline Editor Kris Simon and I loved the concept so much we had to put it on the fast track to becoming its own series,” Shadowline Publisher Jim Valentino said. “When Kat saw Seth’s upcoming work on BRAT-HALLA, she knew he was the perfect artist to capture the mood she was going for. We really can’t help but agree!”
I Hate Galaxy Girl #1 arrives in November with a cover price of $3.50.
