Press Release - NYCC: Serenity Returns!



NYCC: SERENITY RETURNS!

ZACK WHEDON WRITES THE CANONICAL FOLLOW UP TO THE FILM!


NEW YORK, NY – Dark Horse Comics confirmed at New York Comic Con plans to continue the cult classic story line directly following the film. With executive producer Joss Whedon behind the helm, the comic series is sure to have fans clamoring to check it out.


“We've been dying to get more Serenity out ever since the book Joss and Zack wrote. We all loved Zack's work on Shepherd's Tale, and couldn't wait to get him back into the mix. This story is the first giant step past the film, after the big damn heroes stuck a big middle finger in the face of the Alliance,” notes Editor in Chief Scott Allie, “Zack establishes new ground rules for these characters. He nails the voices, takes the relationships to the next level, and just gives us all the best space romp since the film Joss made …”


With artwork by Georges Jeanty (Buffy Season 8 & 9), covers by Dan Dos Santos (Tomb Raider) and script by Zach Whedon (The Terminator) – Serenity returns as a cornerstone of Dark Horse’s 2014 lineup!


Malcolm Reynolds’s crew shook the ’verse to its core when they laid bare the crimes against humanity undertaken by their sinister government—the Alliance. Always outlaws, Mal, a very pregnant Zoe, new pilot River Tam, and the other surviving crew members are in greater danger than ever, and everyone’s asking the same question . . .


“As a science fiction story, Serenity has it all.”—Broken Frontier


Fans can check out the exclusive interview with Zack Whedon on Nerdist and Georges Jeanty on Comic Book Resources!


Serenity: Firefly Class 03-K64—Leaves on the Wind #1 (of 6) is on sale January 29th in comic shops everywhere!

Comics in Connecticut - Brass City Comic Con 3

A few Sundays ago, I spent the day at Brass City Comic Con 3. This is a small local con that is held for one day only. It's held at a local college. Connecticut has a rich comic history that I will be sharing with you over the next few weeks in the Comics in Connecticut feature.

There were a number of dealers of course, but also some terrific comic and other talent.


A Clockwork Creeper somehow got into the Con and almost blew up one of the organizers, Bob Lyons (Legends of Superheros).

And finally, it's not a Con unless I leave with some original art work. I did not get a photo of Cesar Feliciano most likely because I was too busy staring at what he was drawing:

Question:  What's your favorite type of paranormal creature, and why?

GREAT interview...LOVE the cover! My fave PN creature is a shifter. I LOVE their sexy bad boy alpha characteristics, their animal magnetism and easy charm...and who could resist the sense of excitement and danger they just seem to naturally generate. YUM!

Winners x 5 - May 20, 2012

Question:  What modern wedding customs do you find strange, or relics of the past?

Leah Weller who said...

I love the blue dress in the picture above but cannot imagine having to wear the cage underneath to make it poof like that. I cannot put a finger on any one thing I think would be a relic of the past outside of the bride having to wear white. I was happy when my daughter chose a darker cream color to get married in. She is getting married the 26th. My ex thought it crazy she wasn't wearing white and when I asked him what was going to happen when she didn't wear white, he couldn't answer. It doesn't matter were she to walk down the isle in black, the love they share is what will make this marriage work. Not the color she chose for one day.

Rebe who said...

I am soooooo jealous that you got to meet Dan Dos Santos! I love his Mercy Thompson and White Trash Zombie covers. They're too cool!

As for Sci-Fi stuff, I'm a long time closet trekkie. I love Sci-Fi romances - Zoe Archer has a great series that just came out recently. I also like Gini Koch's Kitty Kat series.

Question:  What kind of magic would you like to have?

Paul Weimer who said...

What kind of magic would you like to have?

Oh that's easy, although it's cribbing a bit from Zelazny, but it ties into a mutual interest Alyx and I have--photography.

I would love to have the magical ability to transport myself through a photo that I have made. Somewhat more limited than teleporting, since I would have to have been there before with a camera. I think Magic *should* have limits.

So, yeah


Winners x 5 - May 20, 2012


The winners have been notified and have until 11:59PM US Eastern Time on May 27, 2012 to respond or The Qwillery will very randomly choose a new winner or winners.

Thank you to all!

Free Comic Book Day 2012 - May 5, 2012

I just spent the morning helping out at my local comic book shop, Legends of Superheros, for Free Comic Book Day (FCBD).  The wonderful folks at Legends had tons of comics, FCBD wrist bands, T-shirts, and more.  Legends had something extra special this year too. Cover artist Dan Dos Santos was on hand to sign the gorgeous cover he created for Dark Horse's Serenity comic for FCBD (the flip side of the comic is Star Wars). The cover features Mal Reynolds (Nathan Fillion).  You can read about how Dan created the cover over at io9


Dan was fantastic!
