Die ComicCon 2014 hat heute eröffnet und mein Reader läuft über mit Infobits zu Filmen, Toys und Comics, ich blog das jetzt hier mal runter, unter anderem gibt's Poster zu Antman (YES!), Mad Max, Heavy Metal, Jurassic World und Avengers 2, selbstverständlich neue Comics (u.a. von Jeff Lemire), Vader-Autos und – neben Antman bislang mein Favorite: Die offizielle Gustavo Fring-Faceoff-Actionfigur:
Der ganze Rest nach dem Klick:
Peter Jackson hat das erste Poster zum letzten Hobbit auf FB gepostet.
Mondo Tees steigt ins Toy-Business ein – sehr schlechte Nachrichten für meinen Kontostand. Die ersten Figuren stammen aus Iron Giant und den Turtles, beides für mich nicht wirklich interessant, wobei ich die Idee eines Toys basierend auf dem allerersten Turtles-Sketch ziemlich charmant finde. Die haben aber auch noch eine Hitchcock-Figur angekündigt und die dürfe Killer werden:
Sporting a fine-tailored suit, this replica of the legendary horror director comes with his directors chair, clapboard, cigars, and props from his most famous films -- including a butcher knife, a raven and a seagull. The figure also comes with interchangeable hands and a stand.
Hollywood Special Effects 3D prints 14-foot tall giant creature using 3D printers: „3D printer manufaucturer Stratasys has collaborated with the Stan Winston School of Character Arts, Legacy Effects, Condé Nast Entertainment and WIRED to create a 14-foot tall giant creature which will be showcased at the Comic-Con International 2014 conference. The conference takes place July 24-27 in San Diego, California.“
FIGHT CLUB 2: „CBR News spoke with Stewart, who provided some insight on where the characters are when the "Fight Club" sequel picks up, the design work behind the characters and the challenge of depicting them differently than their film incarnations. We also dig into how the process for "Fight Club" is different than other projects he's taken on in his career and much more.“
Life-size Vadermobile set to cruise Comic-Con: „Mattel is celebrating a "Star Wars" line of toys by showing off a fully functional, life-size Vadermobile at Comic-Con. Ride at your own risk.“
Jeff Lemire (Sweet Tooth, Trillium, Animal Man) and Dustin Nguyen (Batman, Little Gotham, American Vampire) team up to bring a brand new monthly science fiction series to Image Comics in March 2015 about one young robot’s struggle to stay alive in a universe where all androids have been outlawed and bounty hunters lurk on every planet.
Ten years ago massive, planet-sized robots called “The Harvesters” materialized without warning and invaded the orbits of all the United Galactic Council’s worlds wiping out entire planets and civilizations before disappearing again. In a fear-fueled response to this machine holocaust, the galaxy blamed millions of robotic companions, whom they suspected of somehow spawning The Harvesters. All robots and androids were immediately outlawed and ruthless bounty hunters called Scrappers were charged with scouring the universe for any surviving robots.
„TOKYO GHOST welcomes readers to the isles of New Los Angeles, 2189. Humanity has become nothing more than a sea of consumers, ravenous and starving wolves, sick from toxic contamination, who have to borrow, beg, and steal for the funds to buy, buy, buy their next digital fix. Getting a thrill, a distraction from reality, is the only thing left to live for. Entertainment is the biggest industry, the drug everyone needs, and gangsters run it all. And who do these gangsters turn to when they need the “law” enforced? Led Dent and Debbie Decay, constables of the law, which is a nice way to say “brutal killing machines.” The duo are about to be presented with an assignment that will force them out of the decay of LA and into the mysterious lost nation of Tokyo.“
HEAVY METAL: Retroband hat die erste von vier neuen Actionfiguren vorgestellt, Mondo hat ein erstes Poster zum Remake des Heavy Metal-Films.
Und: Der neu-gelaunchte Heavy Metal-Verlag bringt Prints basierend auf dem 70er Kirby-Klassiker „Lord of Light“, den sich das CIA geliehen hatte, um einen Film zu faken und Geiseln aus dem Iran zu befreien:
Heavy Metal has partnered with inventor Barry Geller on prints based on adaptations of Roger Zelazney’s 1960’s notorious sci-fi classic “Lord of Light,” together with comicbook artist Jack Kirby. “Lord of Light” was the project Tony Mendez borrowed to get U.S. Embassy workers out of Iran in 1979, depicted in Ben Affleck’s “Argo.”
„KINSKI, previously a digital-only collection, both written and drawn by Hardman, promises to be a quirky crime thriller about Joe, a down-on-his-luck salesman who finds a cute puppy. The thing is, this puppy already has a home. What starts as a simple rescue mission from neglectful owners quickly escalates into a righteous crusade.“
„RUMBLE is a strange book, that’s for sure—like a scarecrow-Conan fighting in a Louis C.K. TV show directed by David Fincher—with a supporting cast of odd characters, many of whom aren’t even human. […] RUMBLE is a bizarre action/adventure urban-fantasy horror story—with a dash of humor at times. Coming to Image Comics this December.“
