Bluewater Comics
Release Date: September 30, 2012

Comics are a labor of love and a literary genre that receives far too little press, not to mention praise. So, in the spirit of "there is no such thing as bad or in this case mixed, publicity" let's move on. Bluewater Productions is an independent publishing company who specialize in biography comics. Their latest offering in this genre arriving in late September appears to be a mixed bag, with its heart in the right place, and its tongue firmly planted in cheek. Elizabeth Taylor: Tribute is a 40 page short graphic novel in their ongoing Female Force series highlighting the important achievements of famous women from Hillary Clinton to Marilyn Monroe.

Writer Dina Gachman blends pop culture with historical facts to highlight what made Dame Elizabeth Taylor such a celebrated actress and public figure, but is a bit heavy on the fizzy pop. [...]

Boardwalk Empire Image

HBO likes what they're seeing in the third season of Boardwalk Empire, which just got underway recently. It's been announced that the show has been renewed again, giving us a fourth season of the hit period drama next fall.

For those of you unfamiliar with the show, it's set in 1920s Atlantic City (with visits to New York, Chicago, and Philadelphia as necessary) during Prohibition. It follows Enoch "Nucky" Thompson (Steve Buscemi) as a friendly public figure by day who leads a dark second life of crime as the man to see about buying liquor. [...]

The Lone Ranger Header

Apparently yesterday's set of photos from Gore Verbinski's The Lone Ranger were just a tease. Aside from the traditional character photos, they featured some epic Southwest landscapes, and one large locomotive.

Now a new set of photos focusing on stars Armie Hammer and Johnny Depp have appeared online. While one of the photos does bare some resemblance to the first official photo release, the following ones tell us a very different story.

Check out these new photos plus the first official poster below. [...]

Comic Review: The Shadow #5

Posted: 02 Oct 2012 11:13 AM PDT

The Shadow #5
The Shadow #5
Written by Garth Ennis
Art by Aaron Campbell
Colors by Carlos Lopez
Letters by Rob Steen
Covers by Alex Ross, Howard Chaykin, John Cassaday & Francesco Francavilla
Dynamite Entertainment
Release Date: September 19, 2012
Cover Price: $3.99

The Shadow #5 is the penultimate chapter in the first arc of this title, and for me, it's gone a little downhill since the begining. What started off really strong has kind of petered out a little. Bottom line, the story arc is a little messy and the book suffers for it.

Yes, Garth Ennis is a legend in the comic book business. But, even superstars can slip up now and then. I LOVED the first few issues of this title, it was everything that I wanted it to be. You had The Shadow fighting crime in 1930s New York City. You had ALL the trademark Shadow standards, and it was entertaining beyond reason. Then, Ennis decided to take The Shadow OUT of his element and into a globetrotting adventure ala Indiana Jones, and, it just didn't work as well as the first few issues. What you've got now is a very confusing story, that really isn't a SHADOW story. You could plop any pulp character in there and it would work just as well, and that's a shame [...]

New Character Descriptions For Joss Whedon’s S.H.I.E.L.D. TV Series

Posted: 02 Oct 2012 10:08 AM PDT


The success of The Avengers opened the door for bold new possibilities for the Marvel franchise. Phase 2 is already getting underway with Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World shooting, and Joss Whedon signed an exclusive contract that allows him to creatively consult for the studio until 2015.

Now a lot can happen in two full years. But perhaps one of the biggest things, aside from directing The Avengers 2, is the fact that he will be a producer of the new S.H.I.E.L.D. TV show that will air on ABC sometime in the very near future. Up until now, we only knew that he would be directing the pilot, but now a new character description sheet has been revealed. This sheet details the agents you will be seeing on the show. Check it out here below [...]

It’s ‘Battle Royale’ Meets ‘Secret Wars’ In Marvel’s ‘Avengers Arena’

Posted: 02 Oct 2012 09:00 AM PDT

Avengers Arena 01 Banner

Looks like Marvel is doing their own spin on a Battle Royale story crossed with Secret Wars called Avengers Arena. In case you don't know Battle Royale is a near classic Japanese sci-fi/thriller about a future where bad kids are dropped in an arena of sorts to battle to the death. Secret Wars is of course an iconic Marvel Comics series from the 80s where the all-powerful Beyonder assembled a group of Marvel heroes and villains on a distant planet to also do battle to the death. If you combine these two stories you get fairly close to where this new Marvel NOW! ongoing book is headed.

Avengers Arena comes from the creative team of writer Dennis Hopeless (X-Men: Season One) and artist Kev Walker (Thunderbolts), who will be introducing some all-new characters which Marvel describes "the enigmatic Deathlocket and the mysterious Braddock Academy."

Check out the full synopsis and cover for Avengers Arena #1 here below [...]

David Gordon Green To Direct ‘Little House On The Prairie’

Posted: 02 Oct 2012 08:01 AM PDT

David Gordon Green

David Gordon Green's Your Highness and The Sitter may have looked good on the surface, but the overall product failed to impress its audience. So the filmmaker is taking a departure from directing original comedies to directing adaptations. According to Deadline, Green will start off by taking on a big-screen adaptation of Laura Ingalls Wilder's popular book Little House on the Prairie for Sony Pictures.

Wilder's Little House series consists of semi-autobiographical books based on her life with her family in 19th century America. Though there were many made for TV adaptations and miniseries - there was even an animated series - its most popular adaptation came in the 1974-1984 televised series starting Michael Landon [...]
