Dark Knight III: The Master Race Hardcover

One of the most highly anticipated sequels of all-time is finally here in Dark Knight III: The Master Race!

In 1986, Frank Miller introduced his iconic take on Batman and changed the face of comics forever. Now, three decades after Batman: The Dark Knight Returns, Miller himself has returned with a third chapter to his groundbreaking saga.

Dark Knight III: The Master Race continues Frank Miller’s landmark Dark Knight Saga that began with 1986’s The Dark Knight Returns and continued with its 2001-2002 sequel The Dark Knight Strikes Again. Co-written by Brian Azzarello and drawn by Andy Kubert and Klaus Janson, Dark Knight III: The Master Race returns to a world gone awry left in the aftermath of the toppling of Lex Luthor and the apparent death… of Batman himself? Then who will save Gotham City and the rest of the planet against the mysterious Master Race?

Also collected in this graphic novel are the nine mini-comics that originally appeared in the monthly periodical release of Dark Knight III: The Master Race, each of which focuses on a different character from within the world of Miller’s Dark Knight. The minicomics are also written by Miller and Azzarello and will be drawn by some of the greatest artists currently working in comics, including Miller himself, Eduardo Risso and John Romita, Jr.!

Collected here are all nine chapters of Dark Knight III: The Master Race as well as the nine mini-comics.

The hardcover will be released in September 2017.

75 Years of DC Comics: The Art of Modern Mythmaking

In 1935, DC Comics founder Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson published New Fun No. 1–the first comic book with all-new, original material–at a time when comic books were mere repositories for the castoffs of the newspaper strips. What was initially considered to be disposable media for children was well on its way to becoming the mythology of our time–the 20th century’s answer to Atlas or Zorro.

More than 40,000 comic books later, TASCHEN has produced the single most comprehensive book on DC Comics. More than 2,000 images–covers and interiors, original illustrations, photographs, film stills, and collectibles–are reproduced using the latest technology to bring the story lines, the characters, and their creators to vibrant life as they’ve never been seen before. Telling the tales behind the tomes is 38-year DC veteran Paul Levitz, whose in-depth essays trace the company’s history, from its pulp origins through to the future of digital publishing, alongside year-by-year timelines and biographies of DC legends.

The original XL edition of 75 Years of DC Comics was winner of the 2011 Eisner Comic Industry Award for Best Comics-Related Book of the Year. This new edition brings you all the same DC glory in a more compact format.

The 720 page hardcover will be released in May 2017 and retail for $69.99.

You’ll Flip For The New Poster For The Dark Tower

The first poster for Columbia Pictures and MRC’s The Dark Tower has hit the werb! Make sure you download The Dark Tower poster in the gallery below and also flip it around to see Matthew McConaughey’s The Man in Black and more mysterious characters. In fact, the buildings even form the outline of the Dark Tower itself.

Stephen King’s The Dark Tower is the most ambitious and expansive story from one of the world’s most celebrated authors. Now the story comes to the big screen starring Idris Elba as Roland Deschain and Matthew McConaughey as Walter O’Dim (AKA as Randall Flagg, The Man in Black, in the novels). The film is being directed by Nikolaj Arcel (A Royal Affair).

Elba and McConaughey are joined in The Dark Tower by Tom Taylor as Jake Chambers, Abbey Lee (Mad Max: Fury Road, The Neon Demon) as Tirana, and Fran Kranz (The Cabin in the Woods) as Pimli, the right hand man of Randall Flagg. The film also features Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen, A Nightmare on Elm Street), Katheryn Winnick (Vikings) and Claudia Kiim (Avengers: Age of Ultron).

The Dark Tower series tells the story of Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, who is traveling southeast across Mid-World’s post-apocalyptic landscape, searching for the powerful but elusive magical edifice known as The Dark Tower. Located in the fey region of End-World, amid a sea of singing red roses, the Dark Tower is the nexus point of the time-space continuum.  It is the heart of all worlds, but it is also under threat. Someone, or something, is using the evil technology of the Great Old Ones to destroy it.

The Dark Tower is coming to theaters on July 28, 2017.

Check Out The Cover of Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban: The Illustrated Edition

Jim Kay, the official illustrator of the Harry Potter series has turned his skills to the third book in the series, as he brings to life Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban.

As fans of the best-selling author J.K. Rowling already know, the third book sees Harry return to Hogwarts having just discovered that the notorious prisoner who recently escaped from the wizarding prison of Azkaban, is none other than Sirius Black, his godfather—who may be after Harry. And if the Dementors (Azkaban’s soul-sucking guards) and a new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor aren’t enough to adjust to, Harry, Ron, and Hermione, also have to deal with identifying a possible traitor in their midst.

The cover features the Knight Bus, a triple-decker form of wizarding public transportation that takes Harry from his aunt and uncle’s house to Diagon Alley, where he spends the rest of his summer holidays before he returns to school.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban: The Illustrated Edition will hit bookshelves on October 3, 2017.

Chip Kidd: Book Two

screen-shot-2017-03-05-at-8-37-41-pm

This book, a work of great graphic interest in itself, presents the recent work of a designer described as “a design demigod,” and “the closest thing to a rock star” in graphic design.

According to the Huffington Post, “Chip Kidd is the Meryl Streep of book design.” Universally recognized as an American master of contemporary book design and the most prolific cover designer in American design. At the forefront of a revolution in publishing, Kidd’s iconic covers, in large part inspired by memorabilia and comics, have influenced an entire generation of design practitioners in many fields.

Chip Kidd: Book Two collects all of his book covers and designs from 2007 to 2017. We see not just hundreds of his recent projects, but the working processes behind them—thoughts, sketches, revisions, and outright failures in addition to more than a few triumphs. The best-selling authors he has worked with includ Haruki Murakami, Cormac McCarthy, Orhan Pamuk, David Sedaris, Francis Ford Coppola, J.J. Abrams, DC Comics, and Paramount Pictures. Kidd leads the reader through each step of the design journey along the way, culminating in a section on how to write and art direct a graphic novel, using as an example his New York Times-bestselling “Batman: Death by Design.” With a continued passion for unconventional and forward-thinking designs, this volume is sure to bring fresh inspirations to design aficionados, book lovers, pop-culture fanatics, comics fans, and design students

The 320 page hardcover will be published by Rizzoli on September 26, 2017 and retail for $60.
