Batman Eternal Issue 1 Arrives On April 9, 2014

photo

The new weekly comic series Batman Eternal begins in April from DC Comics!

Written by Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, John Layman, Ray Fawkes and Tim Seeley, with art by Jason Fabok, Dustin Nguyen and others.

Batman Eternal will “set the stage for a new Gotham and new characters and a new set of stories that will take Batman into 2015,” Scott Snyder told USA Today. “We want this to be a place where you get to tell a story about anything you want in Gotham, so long as we’re also moving this big story forward in the background. You’ll see bombastic arcs as well but there’ll be plenty of room for Ray to explore some of the darker, more mystical aspects of Gotham that he loves or Tim to explore some of the crime we haven’t seen before.”

“It is 52 issues fully defining Gotham City,” said Ray Fawkes in an interview with PREVIEWSworld. “We’re going to see every member of the Bat Family, every villain you can think of. This is going to be the book that shows readers where it’s at in every nook and cranny of Gotham City. It’s my role, as you might expect, to take people on a supernatural ride through the underpart of the city.”

PREVIEWSworld asked artist Jason Fabok what it’s like to draw a weekly comic series with such a massive cast of Gotham City characters?

“Personally, it’s really been no different from working on a monthly title artistically.  I’ve been working far enough in advance in order to have three issues done for the first month, but each book is done in a month,” explained Fabok. “The difference is that I’m able to work with such a great cast of writers, all pitching cool details for character design, plot and world building.”

“As far as drawing a massive cast of characters, fans should know that we are going to be focusing on all your favorites. New characters, classic ones, and old ones returning, we have a little bit for everyone. I’m really excited to see the reaction to all of the twists and turns that will take place during the course of the series and the fan reaction as well. This book is going to be an awesome, fun, epic ride, and readers have no clue what’s in store for Batman and the rest of the cast.”

Batman Eternal issue 1 will hit stands on April 9, 2014.

Poker-Playing Marvel Superheroes: The Role That Poker Plays In Character Development

798926__marvel-superheroes-playing-poker_p

Every Marvel hero in existence has an ever-evolving character development, and as years pass writers continue to add depth to already well-rounded characters. Many real world issues have been reflected in the conceptualization of these Marvel superheroes. Even current pop culture staples have also made their way to comic storylines. Poker, in particular, has crept into the comic pages more than once. Here are just a few superheroes that have had poker integrated into their stories.

The Thing from Fantastic 4 

Formerly known as Benjamin Grimm, he along with the Avengers butler Edwin Jarvis have hosted a string of floating superhero poker games. Other than the Avengers, the characters that made appearances include Wolverine, Human Torch, Spider-Man, Nick Fury, Beast, and many others as dictated by the Marvel Universe. According to Comic Vine, Marvel fans debated over who would be the best poker player, The Thing or Gambit, which is the next superhero on the list.

Gambit from X-Men 

The superhero is equipped with a Bo staff and explosive playing cards, so it’s safe to say that he know s a thing or two about card games such as Texas Hold ‘Em. In that same forum about Marvel’s best poker player, those who said Gambit reasoned with the fact his kinetic energy allows him to be resistant to telepaths. Others wouldn’t stand a chance in trying to call his bluff.

Tony Stark or Iron Man 

When Iron Man isn’t soaring in the air in his amazingly advanced robotic suit, he is the pretentious and alarmingly wealthy Tony Stark that lives by an extravagant lifestyle. It’s really no surprise that he, out of all Marvel superheroes, could be caught sitting with the high rollers in a Las Vegas Casino or being dealt in alongside, Daniel Negreanu or the seasoned partypoker.com blogger and queen of poker, Kara Scott. Also, being the playboy that he is, he’ll probably be more interested in winning Kara over, than actually winning the pot.

Wolverine from X-Men 

Out of all the Marvel superheroes, Wolverine is the only one that actually played alongside a real poker professional, Daniel Negreanu. Granted, it was a cameo in the X-Men: Origins movie, but that could still count as Wolverine’s ability to play at a professional level, right?

Can you think of any more potential great poker players from the Marvel franchise?

Cemetery Dance To Publish Six Volume Set of Special Collectible Editions of Stephen King’s Doubleday Books Beginning With Carrie

Carrie

Specialty Publisher Cemetery Dance has signed an exclusive deal to produce a six volume set of special collectible editions of Stephen King’s early books that were originally published by Doubleday back in the 1970s and early 1980s! These books are Carrie, ‘Salem’s Lot, The Shining, Night Shift, The Stand, and Pet Sematary, six classics of the horror genre and all-time Stephen King fan favorites!

10255833_10152455828689131_7272848251422427116_n

These special editions will be beautiful and oversized volumes like CD published for From a Buick 8, It, Doctor Sleep, and many other King books over the years.

The first title in this special six volume set is Carrie, which will be published later this year and is available for preorder immediately. Other volumes in this series will follow approximately every six months after that and several acclaimed artists are already creating stunning art for these books. These special editions will feature exclusive bonus features such as introductions, afterwords, artwork, and even deleted material in some cases.

Strong demand for these special editions of Stephen King’s extraordinarily popular early books is expected, and collectors who preorder Carrie directly from us will be the first collectors offered the opportunity to order the next volume before the general public.

Carrie: The Deluxe Special Edition (Volume One in the “Doubleday Years” Collection by Stephen King will feature full-color wrap-around artwork by Tomislav Tikulin and six full-color interior paintings printed on a high-quality glossy stock and tipped into the book!

cover_full_large

About the Book:

Carrie was the odd one at school; the one whose reflexes were always off in games, whose clothes never really fit, who never got the point of a joke. And so she became the joke, the brunt of teenaged cruelties that puzzled her as much as they wounded her.

There was hardly any comfort in playing her private game, because like so many things in Carrie’s life, it was sinful. Or so her mother said. Carrie could make things move—by concentrating on them, by willing them to move. Small things, like marbles, would start dancing. Or a candle would fall. A door would lock. This was her game, her power, her sin, firmly repressed like everything else about Carrie.

One act of kindness, as spontaneous as the vicious jokes of her classmates, offered Carrie a new look at herself the fateful night of her senior prom. But another act of furious cruelty forever changed things and turned her clandestine game into a weapon of horror and destruction.

She made a lighted candle fall, and she locked the doors…

Special Features Exclusive to this Deluxe Special Edition:

- An introduction by Stephen King detailing why he wrote the book
- A lengthy afterword by Tabitha King discussing the book’s unbridled exploration of adolescent terror, sexuality, and the unknown
- Deluxe oversized design (7 inches X 10 inches) featuring two color interior printing as part of the page design
- Printed on a heavy interior specialty paper stock that is much thicker than the paper in a normal trade edition
- Epic wrap-around full-color dust jacket artwork by Tomislav Tikulin
- A different full-color dust jacket for the Artist Edition painted by Tomislav Tikulin
- Six full-color interior paintings by Tomislav Tikulin
- Interior artwork will be printed on a heavy glossy stock and tipped into the book
- High-quality embossed endpapers and fine bindings for all editions
- Full-page reproduction of the telegram Doubleday editor Bill Thompson sent Stephen King to announce the publisher was buying the book
- Extremely collectible print run that is a tiny fraction of the tens of millions of copies of this novel you’ve seen in bookstores over the last 40 years!

Published in three states:

- Slipcased Oversized Hardcover Gift Edition of only 3,000 copies printed in two colors on a specialty paper stock; bound with a fine binding, two color hot foil stamping, and embossed endpapers; and featuring a unique black-and-white limitation page ($85)

- Traycased Oversized Hardcover Artist Edition signed by the artist and limited to only 750 hand-numbered copies printed in two colors on a specialty paper stock; bound with a different fine binding, two color hot foil stamping, and different embossed endpapers; featuring a full-color signature sheet signed by the artist; and housed in a traycase similar to our previous Stephen King traycased editions ($225)

- Traycased Oversized Hardcover Artist Lettered Edition signed by the artist and limited to 52 hand-lettered copies printed in two colors on a specialty paper stock; bound in two different fine materials in a hand-made three piece binding featuring spine hubs, gilded page edges, two color hot foil stamping, and imported hand-marbled endpapers; featuring a different full-color signature sheet signed by the artist; and housed in a traycase similar to our Legacies Lettered Edition ($1000)

My Office

Superman needs his Fortress of Solitude and Batman has the Bat Cave. We all need a favorite space to relax, reflect, write, read a book, watch a movie or showcase a favorite collectible or souvenir.

Maybe it’s a game room, library or secret space hidden by a moveable bookcase that leads to a man cave.

I’ve always been curious what curios J.J. Abrams keeps close by, what books fill Stephen King’s shelves, what collectibles does Patton Oswald possess, what artwork lines Jim Lee’s walls, how many toys fill John Lasseter’s Pixar office and what movie memorabilia does Steven Spielberg showcase? Perhaps someday I will find out!

The answers would reflect the owner’s personality, interests, accomplishments, etc. Equally as fascinating to me would be how the items were displayed.

So, I thought I would let you into my world and show you my office and give you the nickel tour.

I wanted my Southern California office to reflect my varied interests and showcase some of my favorite things.

I have collected Stephen King books since 1983. He’s my favorite author and I’m also a fan of his son, Joe Hill. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting both authors on numerous occasions and they are wonderful talented friendly people. The bottom shelf of my bookcase is filled with oversized art books featuring the work of Walt Disney, Jack Kirby, Jim Lee, Alex Ross, Todd McFarlane, Charles Schultz and Tim Burton.

IMG_9958 IMG_9959  IMG_9966

My Funko Pop! Batman collection guards my graphic novels. Batman is my all-time favorite comic book character as reflected in the art, toys and books in my work space.

IMG_9962

Some of my prized collectibles are an original Batman ink commission by Brazilian artist, Rafael Grampa (I also have his Batman Black & White statue), a signed Adam West Batman photo, a signed Drew Struzan Stephen King Dark Tower print and a series of Jock letterpress Batman prints signed by the artist.

A fun 3D light up replica of Iron Man’s mask appears to be bursting through my wall.

I also collect posters, many of which are from MONDO, a boutique art gallery based in Austin Texas. They release limited print runs of pop culture posters that are lovingly rendered by amazing artists. Some of my cherished prints are based on the Universal Monster movies by Francesco Francavilla, Star Wars by Tyler Stout and The Incredibles by Tom Whalen. Another favorite piece is my Batman Rogues Gallery print set by Olly Moss; With only a few simple brush strokes the UK artist cleverly captures the essence of the Joker, Poison Ivy and the Riddler.

IMG_9947 IMG_9955 IMG_9967 IMG_9971

The Dark Knight Returns by Frank Miller from 1986 is my favorite graphic novel so I had to pick up this statue of Batman vs. The Joker by Kotobukiya. I was a huge fan of both the original Batman TV show and the Batman Animated series so the 1966 Batmobile and the vinyl Animated Batman figure are prominently displayed.

The new Goodyear Blimp, which took its maiden voyage last month in the skies above Akron, Ohio, is bigger, faster and more maneuverable than its predecessors, hitting 80 miles an hour in that first flight, with the help of some tail wind.

Businessweek Cover Story: The Pow! Bang! Bam! Plan to Save Marvel, Starring B-List Heroes

BBW_Marvel_Cover_970x1292

Kevin Feige is one of the more shrewd and successful studio heads of his generation. Captain America: The Winter Soldier opens today and is likely to do better at the box office than Captain America: The First Avenger, Marvel’s first film about the patriotic superhero, which grossed $370 million.

He produced them both. And he’s considering a third. Feige’s films aren’t groundbreaking—they rely on epic showdowns at major landmarks, set to Carmina Burana-style angelic choruses, and the force of computer-generated graphics is strong within them. Still, they feel like a refreshment of the genre, so much so that instead of diminishing returns, Marvel’s sequels make progressively more money.
