IDW Announces Orphan Black Comic Series

Orphan Black, the acclaimed sci-fi series by Temple Street Productions, assumes a new identity in the form of a comic-book series from IDW Publishing. IDW’s series will not be a clone of the show but will feature some all-new stories set in the complex and thrilling world of Orphan Black.

“Orphan Black, in addition to being a captivating TV series, is a perfect premise for comics,” said Chris Ryall, IDW’s Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief. “And as the second season has expanded the series in exciting new directions, that has only increased the amount of stories we’ll be able to tell in comic-book form.”

 Orphan Black, which has just been renewed for a third season, centers on Sarah Manning, who after witnessing the suicide of a woman that appears to be her doppelgänger comes into the knowledge that this woman and indeed herself, are two of many biological clones. Sarah takes on the woman’s identity and uses her position as a police detective to uncover the mystery behind what she is and what that means.

 IDW Publishing is known for its authenticity and attention to detail when approaching licensed properties and Orphan Black is sure to be a comic book series a delight existing fans and make new ones.

 “We’re so thrilled for Orphan Black to take shape as a comic series and join the ranks of IDW’s impressive roster,” said John Young, Managing Director of Temple Street Productions. “Orphan Black was met with an enormous amount of enthusiasm at last year’s Comic-Con which really inspired us to give back to fans of the show through a medium so vital to the science fiction world.”

 IDW will be working closely with the show’s producers to expand the Orphan Black world. The first cover image seen here is by artist Nick Runge. The full creative teams and series details will be announced soon, with the first comic-book series launching in early 2015. Striker Entertainment on behalf of Temple Street Productions brokered the deal.

Brandon Routh Cast As The Atom On Season Three of Arrow

Arrow - Brandon Ruth as Atom

In the world of super-powered heroes and villains, scientists often have secrets. Just ask Ray Palmer, the brilliant physicist and inventor who occasionally shrinks himself down to the microscopic level and helps save the world as the Atom. And who was just cast on The CW’s Arrow.

Even more interesting is the actor who will be playing him—Brandon Routh (AKA Superman in 2006’s Superman Returns).

Palmer will be a recurring role in Arrow’s third season, and promises to shake things up as the new owner of Queen Consolidated who seems to have some mysterious plans for the company’s Applied Sciences Division. No word yet on whether we’ll ever seen Palmer don the red and blue, but considering he’s traditionally a hero, it feels a safe bet that he’ll eventually fall on the side of Oliver’s allies. Still, as the new owner of Oliver’s company—which was forcefully stolen from the Queens in the past season—it’s also safe to assume that there may be some tension between them.

Routh is just the latest in a wave of high profile Arrow casting announcements. Last week, it was announced that Sin City actress Devon Aoki would be coming onboard as Tatsu Yamashiro (perhaps better known as Katana) and Karl Yune would be playing Maseo Yamashiro, her husband. In addition, Peter Stormare has been announced as Werner Zytle, whom Green Arrow fans will recognize as the true name of Green Arrow baddie Count Vertigo. This is somewhat surprising as there’s already been a Vertigo on Arrow—the crazed drug dealer embodied by the charismatic Seth Gable. However, inheritance is a common theme on Arrow, and Stormare’s character will be stepping up to fill the void left wide open in the Vertigo drug scene after the death of Gable’s Count. Whether he’ll possess any of the abilities that Count Vertigo wields in the comics is yet to be seen. Fans will know for certain when Arrow’s new season debuts on October 8th.
