A Song of Fire and Ice Calendar

Dabel Brothers Publishing is proud to announce the publication of the first ever-illustrated calendar from the epic fantasy series, A Song of Ice and Fire, written by George R. R. Martin. A New York Times #1 Bestseller, Martin’s fantasy series has garnered popular and critical praise since the first novel, A Game of Thrones, saw publication in 1996 and has recently been optioned for development by HBO.

The incomparable Michael Komarck, an artist who has amazed fans with his faithful, detailed artwork inspired by A Song of Ice and Fire, illustrates the twelve images in the calendar. His renderings for the calendar are immaculately executed depictions of some of the most popular characters of the series and bring to vivid life some of the most memorable scenes in the epic that’s taken the publishing world by storm.

As the only calendar sanctioned by Martin, Dabel Brothers Publishing’s A Song of Ice and Fire 2009 Calendar is unarguably a rare treat, and will be limited to 1,000 copies, which will be distributed to the Direct Market and booksellers. Of these, 500 will feature an exclusive, Jon Snow cover and only 250 of them will be numbered, as well as personally signed by George R.R. Martin himself. These exclusives will be sold exclusively from Dabel Brothers Publishing’s on-line storefront.

“I am a long time fan of ASOIAF, says Dabel Brothers Vice President, Les Dabel, “being able to help bring it to life visually is a dream come true.”

The A Song of Ice and Fire 2009 Calendar will be available in December 2008, well in time for the holiday season.

Dabel Bros. Produce Warriors Comic

I actually watched this 1979 classic for the first time last year, and recommend it thoroughly. All the different gangs with their various themes and crazy style, all the running, all the mad violence – it’s all there. The tie-in game was pretty cool too. Now there’s a comic. Straight from the DB Bros. press release to your fanboy mind, here’s all the info you need to know.

Dabel Brothers Publishing is pleased to announce the comic book adaptation of the cult movie classic, The Warriors. The Dabels will start with an adaptation of the movie and move onto doing spin off stories based on the movie. This will be the Dabel Brothers first movie to comic book adaptation.

“Even though I love everything we’ve done up until now, I never been this excited about us picking up a license. The Warriors is simply my favorite movie from 70’s,” says Dabel Brothers Special Projects Manager, Derek Ruiz, “Seriously, who can forget the death of Cyrus or Sully banging those bottles together and asking the Warriors to come out and play. That stuff is just classic.”

For those unfamiliar with the movie, it’s about a gang called The Warriors, who are framed for killing a rival gang leader who had been trying to unite all the gangs in the area. With other gangs gunning for them they must get back to their home turf of Coney Island…alive.

The movie came out in 1979 from Paramount Pictures. The 30th Anniversary is coming up in January 2009 and is timed perfectly with the release date for issue #1 of the comic book adaptation.

Dabel Brother’s Business Director Rich Young added, “The Warriors is such a great movie…it’s amazing how well it has held up over time.  We’re excited to be working with Paramount on this and we’re excited about the fact that this is our first movie-based license. This property has its origins in Sol Yurick’s novel, which is what we’re known for (working with literary authors), so we think it’s really a perfect fit for Dabel Brothers. I know we’re going to do some things that people are really doing to dig with this.”

Commenting on the deal, Michael Corcoran, president, Paramount Consumer Products & Recreation Group, said, “Paramount Licensing has an incredibly rich and diverse library of properties dating back almost a century, and we are delighted to be working with companies such as Dabel Brothers Publishing, who find fresh new ways to develop products based on these classic films that will appeal to both existing fans and a whole new audience.”
