Hellboy Creator Mike Mignola To Bring Joe Golem Back To Life With Novelist Christopher Golden At Dark Horse Comics

This November legendary Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, NEW YORK TIMES bestselling novelist Christopher Golden and Dark Horse Comics will unleash the first ever comic book appearance of their character Joe Golem from their novel Joe Golem and the Drowning City. A five issue Joe Golem: Occult Detective mini-series will be co-written by frequent collaborators Mignola and Golden, with art by Patric Reynolds (Serenity), colors by award winning colorist Dave Stewart and covers by Spectrum Award-winning painter Dave Palumbo.

The new series takes place prior to the events of the illustrated novel Joe Golem and the Drowning City. Set forty years after an earthquake leaves Lower Manhattan partly submerged under 30 feet of water, Joe Golem must hunt a horrifying creature that is pulling children into the depths of the city’s canals.

“For years now, since we first saw Baltimore work as a comic, Chris and I have talked about doing comic book sequels and prequels to Joe Golem,” said Mike Mignola. “But, as always, we needed to find just the right artist and when I saw Patric Reynolds’ recent work on an Alien comic I knew he could pull off the world we created in the novel and capture the mood we were looking for. When you find the right artist for something you don’t want to let him get away.”

Like their collaboration on the Baltimore graphic novels, the events of Joe Golem take place outside of the “Mignolaverse”, the strange, shared universe inhabited by Hellboy, BPRD, Abe Sapien, and Frankenstein Underground. The horror of Joe Golem is distinctly urban; the series offers a haunting dystopian mid-twentieth century New York.

“Joe Golem is full of pulpy goodness, weird alternate history, monsters, and magic and it’s full of insanity you’re not going to find anywhere else.” said Golden. “We’re telling the story of Joe Golem: Occult Detective, solving mysteries in the flooded streets of mid-20th century lower Manhattan with the ancient Simon Church, who’s keeping himself alive with magic and machinery at the same time he’s keeping Joe in the dark about his own origins. We want to immerse you in Joe’s world, what life is like in the Drowning City, and with issue one, we dive right in.”

Mignola and Golden are currently writing BALTIMORE: THE CULT OF THE RED KING, with art by award winning children’s book illustrator Peter Bergting, colors by the award winning Dave Stewart and stunning covers by Ben Stenbeck (FRANKENSTEIN UNDERGROUND). Golden’s most recent novel, TIN MEN, was published by Ballantine Books earlier this month.

Marvel’s “Doctor Strange #1″ By Jason Aaron & Chris Bachalo Is Coming This Fall

As we all await the cinematic appearance of Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Marvel Comics is getting ready to bring fans up to speed with the Sorcerer Supreme.  Check out their official announcement below and read an interview with the comic’s creators.

Doctor_Strange_Logo

The Sorcerer Supreme returns for his first ongoing series in nearly twenty years!  And he’s making house calls! Marvel is pleased to announce DOCTOR STRANGE #1 – a new ongoing series from blockbuster creators Jason Aaron (Star Wars, Thor) and Chris Bachalo (Uncanny X-Men, Avengers)!  

Prepare for a side of the Marvel Universe you’ve never seen before as the magical, mystical and all things weird lie at every turn. And if it’s bizarre enough, and you don’t know where to turn – call the Doctor. From inside his Sanctum Sanctorum – the strangest place in this or any universe, the Master of the Mystic Arts protects this realm from the supernatural.

“Get ready for a brand new Doctor Strange for a brand new Marvel Universe,” says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso.  “Jason Aaron and Chris Bachalo have rebuilt Marvel’s ’Sorcerer Supreme’ from the ground up with an excitingly original take that redefines the character going forward.”

A dark new power is rising. One that will have repercussions for all magic users. The threat is growing, and Strange knows he won’t be powerful enough to stop it. If he is to have any kind of hope, it will take a different kind of Sorcerer Supreme. Because all magic comes with a price, and it’s high time Stephen Strange balanced the scales.

“None of Marvel’s other heavy hitters walk the same beat as Dr. Strange,” says Jason Aaron in an interview HERE. “None of them have to face the same sorts of repercussions whenever they use their powers. Being the Sorcerer Supreme is a unique responsibility. And it’s one that Stephen Strange embraces. Even though there’s no doubt that his job is one day going to leave him dead, damned or insane. So I want to celebrate all the weirdness that is Dr. Strange, while having him face a challenge unlike anything he’s ever faced before. One that rewrites the rulebook for what it means to be the Sorcerer Supreme.”

In the first groundbreaking season of Star Wars Rebels, young hero Ezra Bridger joins the clever but motley crew of the starship Ghost in their resistance against the Empire. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. Ezra and his new rebel friends — Hera, Kanan, Sabine, Zeb and Chopper — embark on daring adventures in their fight against oppression across the galaxy, receiving help from familiar heroes such as Lando Calrissian, Ahsoka Tano, and Jedi Master Yoda. Pursued relentlessly by the Imperials and a Jedi hunter called the Inquisitor, this tenacious ragtag band of rebels will find itself in the crosshairs of none other than Darth Vader when season one closes in a shocking two-part finale.

DHM & Dave Perillo Enter The Twilight Zone Asking, “Will The Real Martian Please Stand Up?”

Dark Hall Mansion has been delivering some highly desirable, officially licensed “Twilight Zone art and today we get our first look at the next offering and it too is by one of our favorite artists.  This time out they have given the creative reins to Dave Perillo and he has taken a brilliant approach to one of our favorite Twilight Zone episodes, 1961’s “Will the Real Martian Please Stand Up.”

John Hoyt (TZ)

In conjunction with its ongoing officially licensed “The Twilight Zone” subscription series, Dark Hall Mansion is very pleased to reveal our next guest-artist TZ release: “WILL THE REAL MARTIAN PLEASE STAND UP,” by leading contemporary artist, Dave Perillo. A charming and wacky piece that riffs in 12″ x 12″ vintage LP record cover format on a terrific and classic “Twilight Zone” episode, we think you’ll agree Dave’s artwork perfectly suits the somewhat manic quality of this humorous yet pensive episode.

Dark Hall Mansion, under license by CBS Consumer Products, will release Dave Perillo’s new “WILL THE REAL MARTIAN PLEASE STAND UP” limited edition prints next Tuesday, June 30th, 2015.

Dave Perillo

Artist Dave Perillo brings to bear the influence of one of his, and DHM’s, favorite artists, the enormously influential, Jim Flora. Flora’s unique and highly stylized jazz and pop record cover artwork of the ’40s and ’50s exploded with color and hyper-stylization influencing generations of illustrators in all fields, and Dave Perillo has done him justice! Formatted to appear as the vintage record cover you might always have wanted but not known existed, his 12″ x 12″ “WILL THE REAL MARTIAN PLEASE STAND UP” has all the earmarks of a classic jazz inflected cover from the ’50s while creatively rendering this classic TZ episode’s entire story arc and twist ending in one dynamic piece.

Dave’s standard edition hits all the right notes with its vintage LP color palette, one that not only tells the tale but brings forth some very special record cover artwork, from a unique locale indeed-one of sight, sound and mind, and one from where you might just see future Twilight Zone record cover offerings emanate from. To compliment, Dave’s Variant edition pops right off the cover with a color explosion that feels at once slightly frenetic and all cool jazz. There’s also two select wood editions based on the Standard and Variant colorways.

Growing up can be a bumpy road, and it’s no exception for Riley, who is uprooted from her Midwest life when her father starts a new job in San Francisco.  Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions, Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling), and Sadness (Phyllis Smith).

The emotions live in Headquarters, the control center inside Riley’s mind, where they help advise her through everyday life.  As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters.  Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.

Watch The First Action-Packed Trailer For “Dragon Blade” Staring Jackie Chan, John Cusack & Adrien Brody

“If you stand with us you will be butchered…”

Well, this just came up on our radar and although the action looks pretty epic we’re not sure how we feel about John Cusack and Adrien Brody as “action” stars.  All things considered, we’ll ALWAYS give folks the benefit of the doubt unit we see the film.  There is no denying that both John and Adrien are amazing actors so time will tell on this one.

Dragon-Blade-New-Poster-3

A massive success this year in its native China, “Dragon Blade” brings action spectacle on a grand scale to US audiences. Featuring an international cast led by Jackie Chan, John Cusack and Academy Award® winner Adrien Brody, the film features the fight for the Silk Road when East and West collide.

When corrupt Roman leader Tiberius (Adrien Brody) arrives with a giant army to claim the Silk Road, Huo An (Jackie Chan) and his group of trained warriors teams up with an elite legion of defected Roman soldiers led by General Lucius (John Cusack) to maintain the delicate balance of power in the region.
