New comic book releases 9/25/13

Coming to a comic store near you! New comic book releases for the week of 9/25/13. Let’s take a look at a few of this week’s releases to get an idea of what is hitting stands this week. Over at Dark Horse Comics, the company continues its revival of their superheroes with the pulptastic Captain Midnight #3 (Joshua Williamson, Fernando Dagnino, Ego, Felipe Massafera) which finds the good Captain pitted against one of his oldest foes. DC Comics (Vertigo) continues the pulpy hero theme with this week’s Tom Strong and the Planet of Peril #3 (Peter Hogan, Chris Sprouse, Karl Story) which promises some out of this reality action with a tale that unfolds in “New Egypt”. This next one may not have the pulp tone of the first two peeks of the week, but is big on the crime element. We are talking about Marvel Comics and their release of Trial of the Punisher #1 (of2) (Marc Guggenheim, Leinil Francis Yu) in what may be the trial of the Marvel century as The Punisher surrenders to law enforcement for the murder of a district attorney (for the 411 on this characters backstory, check out the associated video for a peek at his history). Maybe you want a story with a little more sci-fi/Kaiju action in your comic this week. Then you should be checking out IDW Publishing and their release of Godzilla: Ruler Of The Earth #4 (Chris Mowry, Matt Frank) which promises more than anyone could hope for from the big green machine Godzilla. To round out this week’s peeks, we will wrap up with the fantastical. Over at Archaia Entertainment we have the fan favorite Mouse Guard: Legends of the Guard Vol. 2 #3 (David Peterson) and Image Comics offers up a new title with Rat Queens #1 (Kurtis J Wiebe, Roc Upchurch) which promises to be a darkly comedic take on the fantasy genre.

You may be asking yourself where you can find these fine titles and more. Well, the best place to start is your local comic shop where they will be more than happy to help you find all of your favorites. So until next week, stack them high and enjoy!

First set photos revealed as ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ begins filming

Cameras began rolling on The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Parts 1 and 2 Monday in Atlanta, and already the first photos from the set have hit the web.

Over the weekend, Jennifer Lawrence was spotted on the Atlanta set of the movie, alongside co-star Liam Hemsworth, who actually appeared to possibly be in costume.

Julianne Moore, who was recently cast as Alma Coin in Mockingjay, was also spotted Monday in Atlanta sporting a newly-dyed gray hair ‘do for the role.

Filming on the two-part Mockingjay finale is expected to continue through May, though cast and crew will likely take a break in November to promote the release of Catching Fire (in theaters November 22nd).

Director Francis Lawrence is returning to lead the final two movies, which were written by Emmy-winner Danny Strong based on the novels by Suzanne Collins.

‘Shazam!’ makes a striking debut

Today sees the release of “Shazam!” Volume 1 from DC Comics. The hardcover book collects the Shazam! back up feature from the “Justice League” series and stars the New 52 version of Shazam, the super-hero formerly known as Captain Marvel. The collection is written by DC Entertainment’s Chief Creative Officer, Geoff Johns, and art by Gary Frank. The pair previously collaborated on “Batman: Earth 2” and a number of Superman stories, including “Superman: Secret Origin.”

“Shazam!” Volume 1 marks the New 52 debut of Billy Batson and his alter ego of the Mightiest Mortal, Shazam. When the wizard Shazam’s champion, Black Adam, went rogue centuries ago, the Council of Wizards locked him away, along with all the magic in the world. When Black Adam is freed, Shazam, now the last surviving member of the Council, must choose a new champion.

Johns and Frank do an excellent job of re-introducing Billy Batson and the Marvel Family in a way that will appeal to long time and new fans of the characters.

Elden Hensen, Wes Chatham join the cast of ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’

Two more actors have joined the cast of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Parts 1 and 2, which began filming Monday in Atlanta.

Lionsgate announced earlier today that Elden Henson would play Pollux and Wes Chatham would play Castor in the movie. The characters are brothers and cameramen who help film propaganda films of Katniss to support the growing rebellion that is the focus of the two-part Mockingjay movies.

Henson’s past film credits include The Butterfly Effect, Lords of Dogtown, and Under the Tuscan Sun, as well as a variety of guest appearances on TV shows such as “Psych,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” and “ER.” Chatham’s credits include The Help and W (with Mockingjay co-star Elizabeth Banks) and TV appearances including “The Mentalist” and “The Unit.”

Cameras began rolling Monday in Atlanta on Mockingjay, which is being split into two films (being shot simultaneously). Though cast and crew are expected to take a break from filming to promote Catching Fire‘s November 22nd release, filming on Mockingjay will continue through May.

Kung Fu Skratch series kicks it to the next level

Kung Fu Skratch series kicks it to the next level

Do you have an itch to check out some great hip-hop infused Manga? In a market saturated with many Manga titles boasting a vast and deep library, it is often challenging to find something that is accessible and provides a story that readers can jump right into. Well, you are in luck if you decide to pick up Kung Fu Skratch #1, as this one- two punch is just what the Dojo master ordered. This is the first title released by series creator Adrian Engmann and showcases some truly great talent in the form of the production team (Erwin Prasetya: Co-Artist (Pages 1-21), Variant Cover, Dong “Don” Zhang: Co-Artist (Pages 22-24), Steve Mack: Variant Cover, Andres Blanco: Issue 1 Cover and Layout (Pages 5-13) , Andrew Poole: Colors for Issue 1 Cover, Frank Cvetkovic: Letterer, Andeh Pinkard: Logo and Design) Kung Fu Skratch embodies one of the best examples of what pop cultural diversity in comics can create as it takes elements of the hip-hop culture and infuses the art form of Manga to achieve a story that rings with familiar touchstones that make it both comfortable and fun to read. The series tells the story of Jason Stonewall, a teenage martial artist who has returned to the United States after training in the East for a year. Back in his hometown of Brickhaven, Jason’s about to start his first freshman day of high school, but is unfortunate enough to cross paths with the school’s reigning tyrant, Fa’Sho! and his gang of flunkies Sho’Gunns. Forced to use his martial art form, the battle threatens to open a can of worms that extend well beyond the initial confrontation. Visually, the book boast incredible line work, rich deep inks that make this black and white presentation pop, and bold action that manages to capture the fun and dynamic energy of a Kung Fu film. Stylistically, the presentation possesses many of the signature markers that many associate with Manga (visual gags, character design, action sequences) and is a fitting tribute to the style of storytelling that the creators very obviously love. Much like the main character in the 80’s classic movie The Last Dragon, Mr. Engman and his team’s efforts have infused this title with “The Glow” and is a must for those looking for something fresh and new to add to their pull list. With issue #1currently available in digital format on Comixology, the gifted crew is hard at work putting plans together to bring readers the much anticipated second issue with a Kickstarter campaign. If issue #1 and early peeks at issue #2 are any indication, Mr. Engman and crew plan on maintaining a standard of excellence that can only help this title to become a fan favorite. Check it out, it’s a read that’s well worth it!

Banned Books Week is this week, help bring awareness to the dangers of censorship

On September 23-27, the American Library Association (ALA) will be once again celebrating National Banned Book Week. This is their national campaign to bring awareness to the dangers of censorship of books. This is the 15th year of the campaign where libraries, schools, colleges, and community organizations organize events ranging from read ins, informational events, and displays for the public.

Each year they collect the data of challenged books from libraries and schools of challenged books by schools, churches, and parents. They then collect the reasons which usually include sexually graphic, violent, anti Christian, not age appropriate, drug use, or homosexual themed.

According to the Banned Book Week website,

Banned Books Week was launched in 1982 in response to a sudden surge in the number of challenges to books in schools, bookstores and libraries. More than 11,300 books have been challenged since 1982.

Once they collect the information they compile a list of the top 100 of the year. Here are a few recent books that have been challenged: “Captain Underpants”, “The Giver”, “Winnie the Pooh”, “The Hunger Games”, “Twilight” and more.
For a more complete list please visit their website at www.bannedbooksweek.com.

If you would like to organize an event or help bring aw

areness to your community please visit the ALA website and Banned Book Week websites for free promotional materials.

Please see the list to the side to see books that have been banned and/or challenged throughout the years.

Here is a list of the Most Challenged Books of 2012

  • Captain Underpants (series), by Dav Pilkey Reasons: Offensive language, unsuited for age group
  • The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, by Sherman Alexie Reasons: Offensive language, racism, sexually explicit, unsuited for age group

Drama heavy ‘Prisoners’ cuffs fright-fest ‘Insidious Chapter 2’ from top spot

Drama heavy ‘Prisoners’ cuffs fright-fest ‘Insidious Chapter 2’ from top spot

Entertainment’s chit chat off the weekend box office brim over the factor that the action-sci fi flick “Riddick”, the comedy “We’re the Millers”, and the biopic “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” are still pulling in movie-goer’s consumer gross enough to sustain a top ten bracket is worth the ensuing read after the headline. Another interesting piece could surround the spectacular upstart drama “Instructions Not Included”, which being a foreign film releasing only to limited theaters staunchly continues to hold up within the top five since its debut back on Aug. 30.

Even worth a notice is the enduring star power Robert DiNiro and Michelle Pfeiffer deliver for meekly marketed “The Family” that only fell one ranking from last weekend’s number two to this Sept. 20 to 22’s $7. million totaling third place. While the horror “Insidious Chapter 2” has been anything but a house of financials horror in ticket sales from its first place making theatrical release to this past weekend’s second placement at $13.8 million, according to Box Office Mojo.

At the top of the order stands the lead starring team of A-Listers Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhal delivering a median but crowning box office lead for what has been touted in interviews as a disturbing but provocative dramatic film.

“Prisoners” was able to garner a less torturous $20.8 mil. An altogether decent estimate for a production that purportedly cost Warner Bros. $46. million in the making.

Director Denis Villeneuve’s “Prisoners” faces fierce competition in the upcoming weekend. Multiplex headliners presume to be “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2”, “Don Jon” and “Rush” respectively offer gravitas star teamings: Bill Hader and Anna Faris in the animated sequel while Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johannsson New Jersey couple in a comedy drama directed by Gordon-Levitt and the racing biopic starring Daniel Bruhl and off “The Avengers” and “Star Trek: Into Darkness” actor Chris Hemsworth.

Hemsworth is also on on the far but nearing horizon appearing inside Fall’s singular superhero salient “Thor: The Dark World”. Lead Chris Hemsworth stars as the central Asgardian Thor in this thunderhead sequel that provokes a watch on an Autumn reception for a comic book oriented movie.

Mahershali Ali and Patina Miller cast in ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay’ movies

Two more actors have joined the cast of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Parts 1 and 2. Lionsgate announced Friday that Mahershala Ali has been cast in the role of Boggs, and earlier this week the studio revealed that Patina Miller would play Commander Paylor.

Ali has appeared in a number of TV series with recurring roles, including HBO’s “Treme,” “The 4400,” and “House of Cards.” His film credits include The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Predators. Miller is best-known for various stage roles, but also appeared on the soap opera “All My Children.”

Mockingjay is already in pre-production, and is set to begin filming any day now. The two-part finale to The Hunger Games franchise will be filmed simultaneously under the direction of Francis Lawrence, who also helmed Catching Fire following the departure of director Gary Ross.

Previously announced cast members have included Julianne Moore as Alma Coin and Natalie Dormer as Cressida.

The Walking Dead’ infects AMC: Rises with new spinoff series

A new sheriff on AMC rode in and was able to impose a pilot season that made record rating highs for the channel, and kept that posting as it readies into its fourth zombie apocalyptic-telling season.

A new spinoff is hoping pin a star in its showing, the same manner generating for the same genre on the same network.

AMC announces it has greenlit a breakaway series from “The Walking Dead”. The show will revolve around the zombie apocalypse world familiar to television fans and comic book adherents.

“Building on the success of the most popular show on television for adults 18-49 is literally a no-brainer,” said Charlie Collier, AMC’s president and general manager. “We look forward to working with Robert, Gale and Dave again as we develop an entirely new story and cast of characters. It’s a big world and we can’t wait to give fans another unforgettable view of the zombie apocalypse.”

This will be the second spinoff slated after one of AMC’s platinum-standard series with record-making draws of viewers. The widely popular “Breaking Bad” is finishing its final season, and an official start in shooting commences for a branching “Line of Sight” that centers around the character of lawyer Saul Goodman. Actor Bob Odenkirk reprises his role and takes the starring lead for the series.

The untitled project from “The Walking Dead” will debut in 2015, and is under the executive producer helm of Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd and David Alpert.

“After 10 years of writing the comic book series and being so close to the debut of our fourth, and in my opinion, best season of the TV series, I couldn’t be more thrilled about getting the chance to create a new corner of The Walking Dead universe,” said Kirkman. “The opportunity to make a show that isn’t tethered by the events of the comic book, and is truly a blank page, has set my creativity racing.”

The fourth season for “The Walking Dead” will air on Oct. 13, at 9:00 p.m. Eastern.
