Legendary Pictures turned their hand to comics a while ago, and although they don’t produce a lot of sequential art, it’s always pretty slick, such as The Tower Chronicles, and Shadow Walk.
Like they did with Pacific Rim, Legendary Comics is producing another prequel. Their latets project is a comic tieing in to the May 16th release of the Godzilla cinematic reboot, which is directed by Gareth Edwards (the excellent, low budget Monsters) and starring Bryan Cranston and Aaron Taylor-Johnson. The original graphic novel will hit stands a week before the film’s premiere, and is set a few decades before the events of the film. Below you can see Edwards’ announcement about the project.
Crowdfunding site Kickstarter always has multiple interesting projects available, and this one looks a beauty. Storykiller by Kelly Thompson is a prose novel, with about 32 illustrations by some of comcis’ finest artists (Brett Weldele, Declan Shalvey, Ming Doyle, Ross Campbell, Dystin Nguyen and many more). Thompson’s description is below, and here you can see a great video about the unique project, and you can read a 50 page excerpt here. I just love the tagline – “Fight your fiction.”
The monster under the bed is real.
In fact, all the monsters are real, as well as the heroes and everything in between because all Fiction is real and exists in a dimension called Story. However, plenty of them hang out in the Mortal world, living both innocent and nefarious lives. This might not mean much to the average Mortal unaware of the Fictional characters living among them, but for The Last Scion–the only Mortal that can kill those Fictional characters–things are about to become very complicated.
Tessa Battle is that Mortal.
Upon her return to Lore, Oregon after years bouncing around boarding schools in Europe, Tessa had her sights set on simple things like shoe shopping, finding a hot boyfriend, and eating as many pancakes as humanly possible. However, the Last Scion mantle Tessa just got saddled with is not making any of that easy, and as Tessa and her new friends are about to learn, Story is long from done with her, no matter how much she’d like to deny her destiny.
With more than one monster chasing her and questionable characters like The Snow Queen and Robin Hood as her allies, Tessa is going to need all the superpowers she inherited just to stay alive.
And maybe, just maybe, it’s a GOOD thing that behind her back, Stories call her THE STORYKILLER.
Hot on the heels of the surprise announcement of an upcoming Batman animated film, comes a surprise release of a Justice League film – Trapped In Time. Seriously – no-one knew about this, and it sounds awesome! It’s exclusive only to Target for now though, so I really hope the rest of the world is able to see its oon. Judging by fan interest, Warner Bros. would be silly not to release it worldwide.
